Recent studies showed that the maximal fat oxidation seems to be different in men and women and that it can be influenced by type and intensity of exercise. Nineteen endurance trained male (V.O (2)peak 61.3 +/- 4.4 ml x kg (-1) x min (-1)) and 17 female (V.O (2)peak 52.8 +/- 4.5 ml x kg (-1) x min (-1)) athletes were studied over 30 min at 55, 65 and 75 %(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Episodic phases of continuous poor-quality oocytes obtained from South American Clawed Frogs (Xenopus laevis) often are observed. In publications dealing with the surgical technique of oocyte removal, the frogs' robust constitution and resistance against infections provided by magainins are pointed out. For this reason, clean rather(More)
The aim of our study was to establish the exercise intensity with the highest fat oxidation rate in spinal cord-injured (SCI) people compared with able-bodied subjects on a stationary ergometer in order to provide recommendations for ergometer training. Ten endurance-trained wheelchair athletes [V̇O2peak,armcranking 35.9 (5.7) ml kg−1 min−1; mean (SE)] and(More)
Study design: Determination of fat oxidation at three different intensities in trained wheelchair athletes on the treadmill.Objective: The aim of the study was to assess the level and highest rate of fat oxidation in endurance-trained wheelchair athletes for recommendation on endurance training.Setting: Institute of Sports Medicine, Swiss Paraplegic Centre,(More)
The nematode Capillaria xenopodis (Pseudocapillaroides xenopi), a skin parasite of South African clawed frogs (Xenopus laevis), is quite common in laboratory animal facilities. It causes serious skin changes and may further lead to wasting and death of affected frogs. Various treatment protocols, using the anthelmintics ivermectin and levamisole, were(More)
During the last few years an increasing number of cases of extensive automutilation has been observed in a rabbit breeding colony of Checkered crosses. Digits and pads of the front feet were traumatized. No other behavioural abnormalities or signs of disease were evident. Self-mutillation was seen both in stock, breeding and experimental animals, in rabbits(More)
