OBJECTIVES Patients with angina often report that symptoms are worse in cold weather. This study was designed to determine differences between cold-tolerant and cold-intolerant patients in the hemodynamic and ischemic response to exercise at cold temperatures and to assess the role of catecholamines and baroreceptor function. BACKGROUND Studies have(More)
The effect of pirenzepine on oesophageal, gastric, and enteric motor function was evaluated in six healthy volunteers. Each subject was studied before and after taking pirenzepine, 100 mg/day, for 3 days. Half and complete gastric emptying times of clear liquid, assessed by epigastric impedance, were significantly delayed by the drug: 6.16 +/- 1.74 min and(More)
We have measured the effect of the presence of food in the gastrointestinal tract on proximal small bowel motility during sleep. Motility was measured in eight healthy ambulant subjects using two strain-gauge microtransducers incorporated in a fine (2.5 mm OD) nasojejunal tube. The subjects ate a 540-cal evening meal (EM) on the first day. On the following(More)
Background: Vitiligo is a depigmenting disorder characterized by the loss of melanocytes. Thyroid functional disorders and autoimmune thyroid diseases have been reported in association with vitiligo. This study was thus conducted to find out any association of vitiligo with thyroid dysfunction. Methodology: This study was conducted at the Dermatology(More)
BACKGROUND In many patients, emotional stress may exacerbate acne. Psychological problems such as social phobias, low self-esteem, or depression may also occur as a result of acne. The presence of acne may have some negative effect on the quality of life, self-esteem, and mood of the affected patients. While some studies have been undertaken about anxiety,(More)
We studied eight young adult men to see whether a supine posture caused a fall in body core temperature in the cold, as it does in thermoneutral conditions. In air at 31°C (thermoneutral), a supine posture for 3 h reduced mean aural, gastric, oesophageal and rectal temperatures by 0.2–0.4°C, compared to upright and increased femoral artery blood flow from(More)
Time-shared high speed cyclic voltametry using carbon fibre multibarrelled microelectrodes was used to monitor the concentration of 5-Hydroxytryptamine administered by iontophoresis to locations in lamina V of Sm l neocortex and to record spontaneous neuronal spike activity. In the absence of 5-Hydroxytryptamine at any one recording location the firing of(More)
