BACKGROUND Caloric restriction (CR) increases maximal life span in short-lived organisms, and its effects are being explored in nonhuman primates. The objectives of this study were to determine the feasibility of prolonged CR in nonobese adults and to compare the effects of CR- and exercise-induced weight loss on body composition and abdominal adiposity.

OBJECTIVE To compare the inter-rater and intra-rater reliability and analysis time of two methods for quantifying visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) volumes from magnetic resonance (MR) images. RESEARCH METHODS AND PROCEDURES Ten subjects (BMI, 27.0 +/- 2.1 kg/m(2); 56 years of age +/- 4 years) underwent MR imaging of the(More)
BACKGROUND Endothelial function deteriorates after glucose ingestion. This may be attributed to hyperglycemia-induced oxidative stress. Acute endurance exercise might improve postprandial endothelial function by enhancing glucoregulation and reducing postprandial hyperglycemia. OBJECTIVE The objective was to determine whether endurance exercise performed(More)
The increasing needs for power consumption of computing machines is getting a worrying factor for the emerging embedded systems. Asynchronous computer architecture reduces the power consumption of the systems. They are built around using emerging concept of clock less systems. Asynchronous computing systems have demonstrated a full scaled computational(More)
Beijing strains possess unique properties such as, multi-drug resistance, evasion of BCG vaccination and disseminating at a greater rate than nonBeijing strains. Various methods exist for the detection of Beijing strains such as, RFLP or spoligotyping; however, these methods require established cultures and DNA isolated in High concentration. Relatively(More)
