The ontogeny of the IGF endocrine system was investigated in 15 young lambs before and after weaning at 62 days of age. Before weaning, plasma IGF-I concentrations were higher in rams than ewes, and plasma concentrations of IGF-II and IGF-binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) also tended to be higher in rams than in ewes. Feed intake of ewes and rams was restricted(More)
Fetuses swallow large volumes of amniotic fluid. Absence of swallowing results in gastrointestinal tract (GIT) growth deficits. While it is not yet known to what extent the growth factors present in amniotic fluid are involved in GIT ontogeny, milk-derived growth factors are considered to be important for neonatal growth. Our experiment tested the(More)
Forty-four patients with stable effort angina pectoris were included in a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled, parallel group study to compare the effect of two slow-release forms of isosorbide-5-mononitrate ('Ismo-Retard' 40 mg and 'Imdur' 60 mg) on exercise capacity when given as an adjunctive treatment to beta adrenoreceptor blocking therapy.
