BACKGROUND Early stages of coronary atherosclerosis are characterized by a mainly functional impairment of coronary vasodilator capacity under the impact of such risk factors as hypercholesterolemia. The goal of this study was to determine whether 6-month cholesterol-lowering therapy improves coronary flow reserve in patients with angina, reduced flow(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Inflammation, collagen deposition and tissue remodelling are involved in the pathogenesis and complications of cirrhosis with portal hypertension. CXCL9 and other chemokines play an important role in these processes and have been associated with liver injury and complications of liver disease in humans. However, their predictive value in(More)
It is the main goal of this study to investigate the visual-spatial cognition in male soccer players. Forty males (20 soccer players and 20 non-athletes) solved a chronometric mental rotation task with both cubed and embodied figures (human figures, body postures). The results confirm previous results that all participants had a lower mental rotation speed(More)
In this study, the effect of motor expertise on an object-based mental rotation task was investigated. 60 males and 60 females (40 soccer players, 40 gymnasts, and 40 non-athletes, equivalent males and females in each group) solved a psychometric mental rotation task with both cube and human figures. The results revealed that all participants had a higher(More)
new laboratory building, equipped with animal rooms, operating room, etc. for work in experimental medicine, was opened on September 1, 1940. A few days before this celebration, a big truck turned up at the front side of the laboratory building, loaded with hay of sweet clover (Melilotuts albus) harvested at the dustyard at Hisingen, outside Gotheiiburg. At(More)
The mental rotation ability in children with hydrocephalus and those with both hydrocephalus and spina bifida in comparison to healthy controls was investigated in this study. All groups performed a chronometric mental rotation test. Compared to children with hydrocephalus, children with both spina bifida and hydrocephalus showed an impaired mental rotation(More)
The flow-through cytophotometric method was used to investigate the single-cell DNA content in 60 tumours of the CNS and allied structures (9 meningiomas, 5 ependymomas, 15 astrocytomas, 11 anaplastic astrocytomas, 8 glioblastomas, 7 medulloblastomas, 2 oligodendrogliomas, 1 anaplastic oligodendroglioma, and 2 neurinomas). The cytophotometric parameters(More)
A man of 44 years suffering from an exercise-induced neuromuscular disease with mitochondrial abnormalities and rimmed vacuoles is reported. The mitochondrial abnormalities and rimmed vacuoles (autophagic vacuoles) are interpreted as sequential changes of the same pathogenetic process depending on the degree of energy deficiency.
Malnutrition might affect survival and severity of complications in cirrhotic patients. However, adequate evaluation of the nutritional status is a difficult task since the common assessment tools are either inappropriate or too complicated. A simpler method could evaluate the patient’s risk for malnutrition instead of the nutritional status itself. This(More)
MircoRNA's (miR) have been recognised as important modulators of gene expression and potential biomarkers. However, they have been rarely investigated in bio fluids apart from blood. We investigated the association of miR-125b and miR-155 with complications of cirrhosis. Ascites was prospectively collected from patients with cirrhosis undergoing(More)
