Gradual and rapid weight loss: effects on nutrition and performance in male athletes.
We studied seven male wrestlers and three judo athletes (weight 55-93 kg) during two weight reductions. In the "gradual" procedure (GP), a 5.0 +/- 0.4% (mean +/- SEM) weight loss was achieved in 3Expand

Plasma concentrations of asymmetric-dimethyl-arginine in type 2 diabetes associate with glycemic control and glomerular filtration rate but not with risk factors of vasculopathy.
Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is an endogenous inhibitor of nitric oxide synthase (NOS). Increased plasma levels of ADMA may indicate endothelial dysfunction and increased risk of angiopathy.Expand

Atomic emission method for total boron in blood during neutron-capture therapy.
BACKGROUND Boron neutron-capture therapy (BNCT) is a drug-targeted binary radiotherapy for cancer. The (10)B capture of thermal neutrons induces secondary radiation within cells during irradiation.Expand

Effect of High-Dose Statin Treatment on Plasma Concentrations of Endogenous Nitric Oxide Synthase Inhibitors
Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) and monomethylarginine (LMMA) are endogenous inhibitors of nitric oxide synthase. A high level of ADMA in plasma has shown to be a significant risk factor for acuteExpand
