To clarify the situation of trans-placental movement and milk screening of metallic mercury in human, the content of mercury was detected in the maternal blood, umbilical cord blood, milk, and placental tissues. In 18 parturient women, 9 had been occupationally exposed to metallic mercury whereas the other 9 had not. Mercury was detected by means of cold(More)
Previous studies have shown a reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP) from many forms of exertion, ranging from walking to exhausting exercise. The variability in these results may be due to several factors, such as age, diurnal and seasonal variations, drinking water or coffee before the test, acute hyperglycaemia, and physical fitness. The purpose of the(More)
Carbamyl phosphate synthetase-I (CPS-I) catalyzes the first reaction required for the conversion of ammonia to urea through the urea cycle. Severe CPS-I deficiency causes marked hyperammonemia with encephalopathy in infancy and usually results in death within the first few months of life. We describe a 33-year-old woman whose CPS-I activity is less than 5%(More)
Excessive accumulation of one or more of the major lipids in plasma can produce a marked increase in the risk of coronary heart diseases and other vascular complications. During and after pregnancy, changes in the levels of total cholesterol, triglyceride, low density lipoprotein-cholesterol, and high density lipoprotein-cholesterol have been described, but(More)
1. Multidrug resistance is the major obstacle to successful cancer chemotherapy. Circumventing multidrug resistance therefore represents a high priority for clinical anti-cancer treatment. Among many reversal strategies, antisense oligodeoxynucleotides may offer a molecular targeting tool for overcoming cellular multidrug resistance. 2. Two 17-mer(More)
Because the course of glaucoma is often an insidious one and most cases remain asymptomatic until the visual field has been clearly diminished, the frequency distribution of intraocular pressure (IOP) is important from both an academic and clinical viewpoint. However, diagnostically, glaucoma is a disease suited to a preventive approach. Due to differences(More)
BACKGROUND Systemic blood pressure is positively related to intraocular pressure. During the third trimester of pregnancy decreased intraocular pressure while increased blood pressure has been reported. After taking into account all those factors that can affect intraocular pressure, the present study investigated whether or not the high blood pressure(More)
The relationship between days of the menstrual cycle and variations in intraocular pressure (IOP) findings are not consistent. Although, previous studies have demonstrated that IOP decreases during pregnancy and as compared to menstruating women, it is higher in postmenopausal women but the degree of the reported change in IOP values, differs from study to(More)
The present study was planned to investigate the relationship between the magnitude of intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction after short-duration exercise and the intensity, duration and quantity of exercise in healthy subjects. Twenty-five healthy, sedentary male of the same age group, performed exercises at the levels of 80%, 60%, and 40% maximum heart(More)
