The objective of this study was to evaluate the variability of physiological performances of Castanea sativa Mill. in relation to drought tolerance, among and within European populations coming from contrasting environmental conditions. Forty-eight open-pollinated families from a stratified sample (temperature/precipitation) of six naturalized populations(More)
BACKGROUND Isoforms of transferrin interfere with measurement of carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT) as a marker of heavy alcohol consumption. We evaluated the rate of inaccurate CDT results by immunoassays. METHODS We studied 2360 consecutive sera (1614 individuals) submitted for CDT assay without clinical information as well as samples from 1(More)
The prevalence of the sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) among Swedish men 30-69 years old was estimated by a two-stage procedure. In the first stage, 4064 questionnaires were mailed to a random sample of a defined population in the municipality of Uppsala. The response rate was almost 80%; 15.6% of the responders were habitual snorers and 5.8% complained of(More)
A prospective study of 34 consecutive patients with the sleep apnea syndrome was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness and complications of, and predictors of, results in a conservative type of uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP). At six months, 65% of the patients had a 50% or greater reduction in the number of apneas and hypopneas per hour (responders).(More)
AIM To observe the natural course of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in patients without oesophagitis following effective symptom relief, and to determine the place of acid pump inhibitor therapy in the long-term management of these patients. METHODS We investigated the efficacy of on-demand therapy with omeprazole 20 mg or 10 mg, or placebo in a(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the long-term outcome after treatment with uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP). DESIGN Long-term follow-up (4-8 years) with polysomnography. SETTING Referral center for patients with sleep-disordered breathing. PATIENTS Thirty-four consecutive patients of whom 25 (22 men and 3 women; mean age, 49 years) participated in the follow-up.(More)
A lactating woman with spastic paraplegia was given 94 mumol (20 mg) of baclofen orally to study the transport of the drug into breast milk. The concentration of baclofen in serum and milk was determined with a gas chromatographic--mass spectrometric method. The elimination curves in serum and milk showed a similar course, the elimination from milk being(More)
124 patients with keloids were treated with surgical excision followed by postoperative X-ray radiation, begun within 24 hours after surgery. Only patients with a two-year keloid history were included in this study. The treatment results were evaluated 6 and 24 months after treatment. There was good correlation agreement between subjective and objective(More)
One of the aims of retrospective early tests in growth chambers is to find juvenile traits that can be used as predictors of future growth. As growth is a complex trait it has been difficult to find a relationship between results from field tests and single juvenile traits measured in the growth chamber. The objective of this study was to analyse whether(More)
