Dietary fat may be associated with coronary heart disease (CHD). Studies suggest that restricting fat intake may compromise endurance performance and that increasing fat intake may improve endurance performance. We studied the effects of varying dietary fat intake on CHD risk factors in runners. Twelve male and 13 female runners increased fat from 16% to(More)
Chronic exercise and high fat diets are associated with immune suppression. This study compares cellular immune responses at rest and after maximal exercise in runners after eating diets comprised of 17% low fat (LF), 32% medium fat (MF), and 41% high fat (HF) (4 wk each). VO2max increased significantly from the 17% to 41% fat diet. The leukocyte cell(More)
In the rodent central nervous system (CNS) during the five days prior to birth, both growth hormone (GH) and its receptor (GHR) undergo transient increases in expression to levels considerably higher than those found postnatally. This increase in expression coincides with the period of neuronal programmed cell death (PCD) in the developing CNS. To evaluate(More)
Increased tumour uptake of antibodies and antibody-drug conjugates has been demonstrated following pretreatment of animals with recombinant human tumour necrosis factor-alpha (rTNF-alpha) and interleukin 2 immunoconjugates. The experiments reported here were performed to determine whether improved tumour localisation of antibody-carboxypeptidase G2(More)
While GnRH is known to stimulate release of pituitary gonadotropins, its acute effects on the kinetics of secretion of the various hormones and subunits are not well characterized. Pulse-chase experiments were therefore performed to compare the time course of secretion of newly synthesized LH subunits and free alpha from rat pituitary quarters, and to study(More)
