Global cerebral blood flow (CBF), global cerebral metabolic rates for oxygen (CMRO2), and for glucose (CMRglc), and lactate efflux were measured during rest and during cerebral activation induced by the Wisconsin card sorting test. Measurements were performed in healthy volunteers using the Kety-Schmidt technique. Global CMRO2 was unchanged during cerebral(More)
To establish whether re-occlusion of the femoral artery could be prevented, in 6 consecutive patients undergoing percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for superficial femoral artery occlusion the recanalised segment was isolated, with a 7-French double-balloon catheter. 5 mg recombined human tissue-type plasminogen activator (rt-PA) and 1000 IU(More)
PURPOSE The elderly lose skeletal muscle mass with age, which may be detrimental for function and quality of life. Both inactivity and heavy resistance exercise are known to have marked but opposite effects upon muscle mass. However, the potential effects of daily physical activity upon muscle protein synthesis (MPS) are less investigated. The aim of this(More)
