OBJECTIVE The effect of exercise training and acarbose on glycemic control, insulin sensitivity, and phenotype was investigated in mild type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Sixty-two men and women with type 2 diabetes were randomized to 12 weeks of structured exercise training with or without acarbose treatment or to acarbose alone. Glycemic(More)
This study evaluates the influence of gender on survival and tumor recurrence following adjuvant therapy of completely resected stages II and IIIa non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group conducted a randomized prospective trial of adjuvant therapy in patients with completely resected stages II and IIIa NSCLC. A laboratory(More)
This study is a combined modality Phase II therapeutic trial to determine the efficacy of the novel combination of VP-16, Vincristine and Procarbazine in addition to postoperative radiation therapy in patients with high grade intracranial gliomas. Thirty three patients (median age 51 years) were entered (27 with glioblastoma multiforme, 6 with anaplastic(More)
The response of native collateral circulation to chronic stenosis of the left circumflex coronary artery (LCx) was studied in 17 mongrel dogs. Stenosis restricted reactive hyperemia of the LCx without affecting resting flow. Regional myocardial blood flow was measured by the tracer microsphere technique. Coronary collateral blood flow to the LCx was(More)
BACKGROUND Mechanical chest compressions (CCs) have been shown capable of maintaining circulation in humans suffering cardiac arrest for extensive periods of time. Reports have documented a visually normalized coronary blood flow during angiography in such cases (TIMI III flow), but it has never been actually measured. Only indirect measurements of the(More)
BACKGROUND In current guidelines, prolonged cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) mandates administration of repeated intravenous epinephrine (EPI) doses. This porcine study simulating a prolonged CPR-situation in the coronary catheterisation laboratory, explores the effect of EPI-administrations on coronary perfusion pressure (CPP), continuous coronary(More)
BACKGROUND Resuscitation after cardiac arrest (CA) in the catheterization laboratory (cath-lab) using mechanical chest compressions (CC) during simultaneous percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a strong recommendation in the 2015 European Resuscitation Council (ERC) guidelines. This study aimed at re-evaluating survival to hospital discharge and(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effect of vitamin D3 on hepatic Cytochrome P450 enzyme (CYP) 3A4 in patients with abnormal glucose regulation using the endogenous marker 4β-hydroxycholesterol (4β-OHC):cholesterol ratio. METHODS The present study took advantage of a trial primarily aiming to investigate the effect of vitamin D3 on beta cell function and insulin(More)
