The number and biomass of prey captured were estimated for Pinguicula alpina, P. villosa and P. vulgaris in a subarctic environment. Seasonal captures were estimated for one site per species for 4-5 years. Captures were related to reproductive status (reproductive/non-reproductive) and to leaf area. For one species (P. vulgaris) the catch was also compared(More)
Investigations concerning a possible influence of thyroid disease and function on the risk for breast cancer have given contradictory results--although a slight hypothyroidism was repeatedly suggested and supported by increased thyrotropin concentrations and exaggerated TRH-responses. The selection of proper controls was stressed and in this study 179(More)
The storage of glycogen in skeletal muscle and the liver was investigated after a 20% third-degree burn in the rat. The glycogen storage was studied 30 min and 20 hours post-burn. Thirty minutes after infliction of the burn the storage in the liver was 80% and in the muscle 60% of that in the control animals, and 20 hours after the burn 80% and 40%,(More)
The late results of operation for primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT) were analyzed in 441 patients operated on 4 to 27 years earlier (mean follow-up time, 7.7 years). A conservative surgical approach was mainly used, attempting if possible to visualize all four parathyroid glands and extirpate only the enlarged glands. Subtotal resection was performed in(More)
Changes in thyroid hormone metabolism induced by surgical trauma were studied by determination of TSH, T3, rT3, T4 and T3-resin uptake before, during and after mastectomy in 20 women and cholecystectomy in 10 women. Pronounced and reciprocal changes, explained by altered peripheral T4 metabolism were found concerning T3 and rT3. The decreased T3 and(More)
Riding accidents can be of a serious nature. Knowledge of risk factors is of essential value in the prevention of injuries. From the years 1969 through 1982 a series of 53 lethal riding injuries is analysed with reference to the rider, the horse, and the environment. Craniocerebral injuries dominate in this series, indicating the importance of adequately(More)
