Primary hyperparathyroidism was the most likely diagnosis in sixty-eight non-thiazide treated patients with hypercalcaemia detected in a health screening. The group included fifty-five females and thirteen males with a mean +/- SEM age of 55.0 +/- 0.7 years. On a pair basis, these patients were compared with a series of sixty-eight age- and sex-matched(More)
When 14C-chlorthalidone was administered orally to 2 healthy volunteers, the total recovery of radioactivity in urine (about 75 percent) and feces was close to 100 percent. Most of the label recovered in the blood was bound to the blood cells. When the procedure was repeated while the 2 subjects were receiving acetazolamide, the excretion of labeled(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effect of walking training on a treadmill with body weight support (BWS) and walking training on the ground at an early stage of rehabilitation in patients with hemiparesis after stroke. DESIGN Randomized controlled experimental study. SETTING Multicentre design; three departments of rehabilitation medicine. SUBJECTS(More)
OBJECTIVES The objectives of this prospective study, undertaken in elderly patients with stroke undergoing rehabilitation, were to determine to what extent fall-related self-efficacy changes over time, its relationships to objectively assessed functions and activities, and the predictive capacity of self-efficacy at discharge for activities of daily living(More)
1. Biopsy specimens of muscle obtained after an overnight rest from 14 men and eight women, apparently healthy subjects (age range 52-79 years), were analysed for pyruvate, lactate and energy-rich phosphagens. 2. Values for metabolites showed no sex differences. Compared with previous findings in men and women about 40 years younger, the intramuscular(More)
Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) was the most likely diagnosis in 68 non-thiazide-treated patients with hypercalcaemia detected in a health screening. The group comprised 55 females and 13 males, with a mean age of 55.0 +/- 0.7 (S.E.M.) years. On a pair basis these patients (the observation group) were compared with a series of 68 age- and sex-matched(More)
Bile acid composition was determined in duodenal and jejunal aspirates obtained under fasting conditions in normolipidaemic controls and in patients with the type IIa and type IV lipoprotein patterns. In 17 out of the 22 subjects studied, the duodenal as compared with the jejunal aspirates contained proportionally more CD (chenodeoxycholic acid) than C(More)
Bile acid kinetics were determined in 15 normolipidemic and 61 hyperlipidemic subjects with the aid of [(14)C]cholic acid and [(3)H]chenodeoxycholic acid. The diet was standardized and of natural type. The total bile acid formation was within normal limits in patients with hyperlipoproteinemia types IIa and IIb. On the average the production of cholic acid(More)
