The present study investigated the influence of physical training on alterations leading to reduced adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) formation in aged myocardium. Senescent (28-mo-old) rats underwent a moderate treadmill exercise program and were compared with sedentary controls. In myocardial membranes from aged rats, isoprenaline-stimulated(More)
This study evaluated the effect of a dried garlic powder preparation, standardised to 1.3% alliin, on the composition of plasma lipoproteins and erythrocyte membranes. Forty volunteers, aged 70 years and over, took 600 mg of garlic powder per day for three months. In participants with initially normal plasma cholesterol levels (CH less than 200 mg/dl; n =(More)
QUESTION A single s.c. injection of Dextran is very suitable in producing an inflammatory response in the rat. The Dextran edema has become a standard method. It seems not uhlikely that Sephadex, the Dextran gel widely used in the gelchromatography may have a similar effect. Sephadex, because of its physiochemical properties, would offer some advantages in(More)
Middle-aged (16-17 month) and aged (29 resp. 31-33 month) female Sprague-Dawley rats were assessed for age-dependent changes in gait. Stride length and gait symmetry decreased significantly with age. Stance width distributions changed from normal to bimodal. Changes in stride length and stance width were even significantly different between 29 and 31 months(More)
Stride length, stance width and gait symmetry were measured as parameters of gait analysis in young (5 months) and old (28 months) Sprague-Dawley rats following 3 months of treadmill running as well as in sedentary controls. Stride length decreased significantly with age and increased significantly following training in both young and old rats. Means of(More)
The influence of treadmill running on age-dependent changes of motor performance was investigated in differently old female Sprague-Dawley rats. Following 12 months of exercise training a test battery including gait analysis, spontaneous motor activity, and three more motor tasks of different complexity was performed. The influence of age on motor(More)
