Plasma vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin (OXT) were determined by radioimmunoassay in healthy young men before, during and after a running exercise until exhaustion. In four of the five test subjects (one subject was underloaded) physical load resulted in a marked increase in plasma AVP with peak values of 11.7 to 57.8 pg/ml at exhaustion. Plasma OXT increased(More)
In a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study, we tested a 4-week program in normobaric hypoxia that is commercially offered for the prevention of acute mountain sickness (AMS). Twenty-two male and 18 female healthy subjects [mean age 33 +/- 7 (SD) years] exercised 70 min, 3 x /week for 3 weeks on a bicycle ergometer at workloads of 60% VO2max(More)
A comparative study comprising 30 patients with glaucoma and 11 ocular hypertensives showed that pilocarpine 2%-4% and metoprolol 3% lowered the intraocular pressure to the same extent over a 4-week period. The magnitude of effect corresponded to 29.0% of the untreated pressure level in the pilocarpine group and to 31.9% in the metoprolol group. No(More)
The influence of physical stress (bicycle ergometer and track) on 13 parameters of the plasmatic coagulation system was investigated in trained and untrained test persons. Shortenings of the coagulation times as well as distinct increases of the activity or concentration were observed in the partial thromboplastin time (PTT), the factor VIII activity(More)
