RATIONALE Inflammatory cytokines like tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) are elevated in congestive heart failure and are known to induce the production of reactive oxygen species as well as to deteriorate respiratory muscle function. OBJECTIVES Given the antioxidative effects of exercise training, the aim of the present study was to investigate if(More)
Based on Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) maps from the 2013 Planck Mission data release, this paper presents the detection of the Integrated Sachs-Wolfe (ISW) effect, i.e., the correlation between the CMB and large-scale evolving gravitational potentials. The significance of detection ranges from 2 to 4 σ, depending on which method is used. We investigate(More)
We report the results of a joint analysis of data from BICEP2/Keck Array and Planck. BICEP2 and Keck Array have observed the same approximately 400  deg^{2} patch of sky centered on RA 0 h, Dec. -57.5°. The combined maps reach a depth of 57 nK deg in Stokes Q and U in a band centered at 150 GHz. Planck has observed the full sky in polarization at seven(More)
AIMS This report describes the baseline characteristics of patients in the Reduction of Events with Darbepoetin alfa in Heart Failure trial (RED-HF) which is testing the hypothesis that anaemia correction with darbepoetin alfa will reduce the composite endpoint of death from any cause or hospital admission for worsening heart failure, and improve other(More)

We present an updated description of the Planck Low Frequency (LFI) data processing pipeline, associated with the 2015 data release. We point out the places in which our results and methods have remained unchanged since the 2013 paper and we highlight the changes made for the 2015 release, describing the products (especially timelines) and the ways in which(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the widespread use of noninvasive testing prior to invasive coronary diagnostic the diagnostic yield of elective coronary angiography has been reported low in subjects with suspected obstructive CAD. OBJECTIVE To determine the predictive value of noncoronary atherosclerosis (NCA) in subjects with suspected stable coronary artery disease(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic heart failure (CHF) results in limb and respiratory muscle weakness, which contributes to exercise intolerance and increased morbidity and mortality, yet the molecular mechanisms remain poorly understood. Therefore, we aimed to compare parameters of antioxidative capacity, energy metabolism, and catabolic/anabolic balance in diaphragm and(More)
The neuronal isoform of nitric oxide synthase (nNOS), the enzyme that catalyzes the formation of nitric oxide (NO), is expressed in a normal rat skeletal muscle where it is localized at the sarcolemma, reflecting the molecular association between nNOS and subsarcolemmal dystrophin complex. The expression of nNOS in fast twitch skeletal muscles such as m.(More)
