The short-term clinical response was excellent in four patients, good in eight, poor in four and there was no change in two. At follow-up, two patients were(More)
The running economy of seventeen athletes was studied during running at a low speed (3.3 m X s-1) on a motor-driven treadmill. The net energetic cost during running expressed in kJ X kg-1 X km-1 was on average 4.06. As expected, a positive relationship was found between the energetic cost and the percentage of fast twitch fibres (r = 0.60, n = 17, p less(More)
The activities of Cu,Zn superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase, catalase and glutathione reductase in neuronal and glial cell-enriched fractions obtained from the cerebral cortex of rat brain during aging (15, 30, 90, 350, 750 days of age) were assayed. Our results showed that glutathione peroxidase, catalase and glutathione reductase activities(More)

Plasma lipid concentration and post-heparin lipolytic activity in twenty-two epileptic children treated either with phenobarbitone or sodium valproate were evaluated. An increase of phospholipid was observed in whole blood as well as in the low-density nd high-density lipoproteins in patients undergoing phenobarbitone treatment. No change was found in(More)
