Three adult monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) underwent a total section of the spinal cord at thoracic level (T6). 1 week later, two of them received at T8 level an injection of a cellular suspension prepared from the raphe region of a foetal macaque 39 days old. The third animal received one injection of buffer solution. 1 month later, the animals were(More)
BACKGROUND Tissue concentrations of fatty acids (FAs) and genetic variations are well-known factors which affect the cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. The objective was to examine whether the genetic variability of 20 candidate genes and red blood cells (RBCs) percentage of total n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), a biomarker of dietary n-3 PUFA(More)
Background n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) from fish are known modulators of cardiometabolic risk factors. Objective To examine fatty acids (FAs) status and the relationship between n-3 LC-PUFA and cardiometabolic risk factors in Cree participants. Design We analyzed data from a cross-sectional study (n=829) conducted in Cree adults(More)
Background Indigenous peoples have traditionally relied on foods hunted and gathered from their immediate environment. The Eastern James Bay Cree people consume wild game and birds, and these are believed to provide health as well as cultural benefits. Objective To determine the fatty acid (FA) composition of traditional game and bird meats hunted in the(More)
Under certain conditions, it is possible to record His bundle potentials from thoracic surface electrodes. These potentials, which are extremely weak on the chest wall, must be extracted from the "background noise" using an averaging method. The required signal being situated before the R wave, and at a constant distance from the latter, the potentials(More)
