OBJECTIVES To review the main findings of the Euralox 1 study - a multicentre, randomised, double-blind study conducted in 1008 healthy postmenopausal women allocated to raloxifene (n = 495) or continuous combined estrogen-progestin therapy (ccEPT; n = 513) for 6 months -- and provide an overview of the risks and benefits of raloxifene and ccEPT.

Clonidine (150 Μg/kg s. c.) depressed avoidance conditioned reflexes in Long-Evans rats. Some α-adrenoceptor blocking agents piperoxan, tolazoline, phentolamine, dibenamine and phenoxybenzamine also depressed these reflexes. Yohimbine (1–2 mg/kg) was found to have no significant effect. Atropine (10 to 15 mg/kg i. p.) antagonized the depression of(More)
We report for the first time the concentrations of free amino acids in human intestinal biopsies obtained by routinely performed endoscopy. We studied 15 medical patients with no changes of the mucosa and six HIV-infected persons with duodenitis. The mean (and SD) sum of all amino acids, taurine excepted, was 61.9 (5.4) mmol/kg dry weight in duodenal(More)
LY 186641 is a diarylsulfonylurea with a broad spectrum antitumor activity against both murine and human solid tumors. We report here the results of a phase II trial of LY 186641 in advanced renal cell adenocarcinoma. The drug was administered orally, once daily for 2 weeks, every 21 days at a 700 mg/m2/d dose. Sixteen patients were enrolled in this phase(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the incident rate of abnormal endometrial findings in postmenopausal women receiving treatment with either 60 mg of raloxifene or a continuous combined estrogen plus progestin therapy containing 2 mg of 17 beta-estradiol plus 1 mg of norethisterone acetate for a duration of up to 12 months. METHODS One thousand eight asymptomatic(More)
A method was developed for the determination of deuterated phenylalanine (Phe) and tyrosine (Tyr) in plasma after intravenous loading with heptadeuterated Phe (0.030 g/kg). Phenylthiohydantoinderivatives of the amino acids are formed and separated preparatiyely by High Pressure Liquid Chromatography. The ratio of deuterated and nondeuterated amino acids is(More)
As the olfactory system is closely connected with the brain areas responsible for the most crucial alterations in psychiatric populations, especially cognitive and emotional impairments, the study of olfactory processing may be a relevant approach to identify specific markers of alcohol dependence. The aim of this study was to propose the probable olfactory(More)
