The possible involvement of sympathetic sudomotor function by acrylamide intoxication was investigated in the mouse, and compared with nerve conduction studies and global motor tests. Acrylamide (40 mg/kg, 3 days per week, 8 weeks) was given per os to a group of mice (A1). Their motor ability to stand on the rotarod was impaired from day 11, reaching a(More)
BACKGROUND A protective role for glucocorticoid therapy in animal models of sepsis was shown many decades ago. In human sepsis, there is new interest in glucocorticoid therapy at a physiological dose after reports of improved response to vasopressor drugs and decreased mortality in a selected group of patients. However, other reports have not confirmed(More)
BACKGROUND Fragile X syndrome is associated with low ovarian reserve and poor ovarian response. The aim of this study was to investigate whether CGG repeats on the fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) gene have predictive value for ovarian response to stimulation with gonadotrophins and for clinical outcome in our oocyte donation program. METHODS Oocyte(More)
The purpose of this study is to test the role that parasympathetic postganglionic neurons could play on the adaptive electrophysiological changes produced by physical training on intrinsic myocardial automatism, conduction and refractoriness. Trained rabbits were submitted to a physical training protocol on treadmill during 6 weeks. The electrophysiological(More)
OBJECTIVES The majority of studies on glucocorticoid treatment in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) bronchiolitis concluded that there are no beneficial effects. We hypothesized that RSV-infected patients may have an increased glucocorticoid receptor (GR) β expression, the isoform that is unable to bind cortisol and exert an antiinflammatory action. (More)
