The effects of four levels of activity on heart rate, blood pressure, cardiac index, total peripheral resistance index (TPRI), norepinephrine (NE) spillover rate, insulin sensitivity, and levels of lipids and some hormones were studied in 12 normal subjects. The randomized periods were (1) 4 weeks of below-sedentary activity, (2) 4 weeks of sedentary(More)
The long-term effect of exercise on blood-pressure (BP) was assessed in 13 untreated patients with essential hypertension. After a 6-week run-in period the levels of activity studied were sedentary, 45 min bicycling at 60-70% of maximum work capacity (Wmax) three times per week (3/week), and 45 min bicycling seven times per week (7/week), each for 4 weeks.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate efficacy and safety data of currently available ocular hypotensive medicines derived from 24-hour studies, of similar design, in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), exfoliative glaucoma, or ocular hypertension (OH). DESIGN Meta-analysis of published articles evaluating patients with POAG, exfoliative glaucoma, or OH. (More)
PURPOSE To evaluate intraocular pressure (IOP) control over 24 hours using travoprost and timolol fixed combination (TTFC) administered in the morning or evening in primary open-angle and exfoliative glaucoma. METHODS Patients were randomized to TTFC administered in either the morning or evening for 8 weeks. Previously treated patients underwent an(More)
Depression is a common occurrence in the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected population. Complications in treating depressed HIV-infected individuals include the use of multiple medications, additive side effects, and potentially significant drug-drug interactions. Based on the pharmacologic characteristics of venlafaxine and indinavir, we(More)
Forty-six patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) were studied for colonization and sensitization by Aspergillus organisms. The fungus was cultured from 21 of 37 (57%) patients who produced sputum. The non-CF sputum isolation rate was 6.5%. Sputum hyphae were seen in 95% of patients with positive cultures. Sputum eosinophilia accompanied colonization by(More)
The purpose was to evaluate faith-based studies within the medical literature to determine whether there are ways to help physicians understand how religion affects patients’ lives and diseases. We reviewed articles that assessed the influence of religious practices on medicine as a primary or secondary variable in clinical practice. This review evaluated(More)
PURPOSE To review the prevalence, diagnosis, causes, and treatment of ocular surface disease (OSD) in patients with ocular hypertension or primary open-angle glaucoma. METHODS A review of the literature pertaining to OSD and glaucoma. RESULTS Recent studies indicate that OSD demonstrates an overall prevalence in glaucoma of 42% (range 20-59%) and is(More)
This review aimed to compare the predictive value between the untreated reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP) from baseline or placebo measured in early phase clinical trials to phase III and IV results for glaucoma medicines. Published, placebo-controlled, randomised, parallel, single-masked or double-masked clinical trials with at least one phase II,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the 24-h intraocular pressure (IOP) control of brimonidine/timolol fixed combination (BTFC) versusthe unfixed combination of its individual components, each dosed twice daily, in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. METHODS An observer-masked, randomized, crossover, active-controlled, two-centre comparison.(More)
