The role of creatine supplementation in altering the physiological parameters regulating cardiac muscle's functional capacity through the initiation of cardiac hypertrophy and altered contractile protein expression has not been determined. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of creatine supplementation, with and without exercise stress, on(More)
A specialized near infrared spectrophotometry instrument for noninvasive, continuous monitoring of the hemodynamic events of erection in the human penis has been developed. Its potential application for the diagnostic evaluation of erectile dysfunction was investigated. Thirty-eight patients and 18 volunteer subjects underwent penile near infrared(More)
I mpaired glucose tolerance is frequent in patients with pheochromocytoma (1). A decreased insulin secretion is considered to be the main cause for pheochromocy-toma-associated diabetes (2).

considered to be from animals to humans (27–29), but this view has been based primarily on outbreak investigations. However, on the basis of whole-genome sequence analysis, we provide a historical perspective on the epidemic that leads to a different inference. This is the largest study of its kind, utilizing tools with the finest resolution available to(More)
Background and Purpose: Cerebral intraventricular infusion of acidic or basic fibroblast growth factor has been shown to attenuate ischemic damage to hippocampal CA1 neurons in the gerbil. The purpose of the present study was to determine if the basic fibroblast growth factor transgenic mouse has an enhanced
