This investigation describes, to our knowledge, the first experiment where the microdialysis technique was used to study certain metabolic events in human patellar tendons in combination with immunohistochemical analyses of tendon biopsies. In five patients (four men and one woman) with a long duration (range 12-36 months) of pain symptoms from Jumper's(More)
This investigation was to our knowledge the first to use the microdialysis technique to study concentrations of substances in a human tendon. In four patients (mean age 40.7 years) with a painful nodule in the Achilles tendon (chronic Achilles tendinosis) and in five controls (mean age 37.2 years) with normal Achilles tendons (confirmed by ultrasonography)(More)
We investigated the short-term (1 hour-3 days) effects of a 45 minute run on calcium, parathyroid hormone, the carboxyterminal propeptide of type I procollagen (PICP), and the immunoactive carboxyterminal telopeptide of type I collagen in serum (ICTP) in young females. Fourteen healthy young women, aged 25.2 ± 0.6 years (mean ± SEM) with regular(More)
We used the microdialysis technique to study concentrations of substances in the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) tendon in patients with tennis elbow. In 4 patients (mean age 41 years, 3 men) with a long duration of localized pain at the ECRB muscle origin, and in 4 controls (mean age 36 years, 2 men) with no history of elbow pain, a standard(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the association between muscle strength of the thigh, different body constitutional parameters, and bone mineral density (BMD) in adolescents. The subjects were 26 healthy adolescent boys, age 15.9 +/- 0.3 years, not training for more than 3 h per week. BMD was measured in total body, head, humerus, spine, femur, and(More)
24 hospitalized psychiatric patients with neuroleptic-induced tardive dyskinesia were treated with alpha-methyl-para-tyrosine (AMPT), 4 g daily for 3 days, and biperiden, 12 mg daily for 3 weeks. The results were evaluated blindly by means of videotape technique. The frequency of tardive dyskinesia was significantly reduced by AMPT and significantly(More)
We have recently demonstrated a general relationship between bone mass, muscle strength, and several body constitutional parameters in adolescent boys with a moderate exercise level. The present study was conducted to evaluate these previously described relationships in adolescent boys subjected to high physical activity and also to compare the bone mass of(More)
Weight-bearing exercise has been shown to maintain or increase bone mass in younger as well as older individuals but the mechanisms by which mechanical loading affects bone metabolism are not known in detail. Twelve postmenopausal women participated in a single bout of brisk walking (50% of VO2 max) for 90 minuttes. Calciotropic hormones and markers of type(More)
Whether biochemical markers of bone metabolism can be used in assessing the conditions of implant fixation is unknown. In this study, the serum levels of three bone markers were measured prospectively in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) to determine if patients with different fixation conditions of the tibial component showed any(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate bone mineral density (BMD) at different sites in female ice hockey players as well as to study the relationship between BMD, muscle strength, and body composition parameters. The study group consisted of 14 female ice hockey players (age 22.2 +/- 4.3 years) which was compared with 14 inactive females (age 21.5(More)
