The magnitude of blood pressure reduction, the type of drug used and the associated risk factors may modulate the effect of treatment on mortality. AIM To report the effects of treatment of essential hypertension, in a cohort followed for up to 26 years. PATIENTS AND METHODS A(More)

Young coffee plants were treated by putting a droplet of a solution containing 10B-enriched boron on some of their leaves. The rate of boron absorption by leaves (measured using neutron capture radiography) was found to be in the range of 1.9 to 5.3 nmol boron per h. This means that it requires several days for a coffee leaf to absorb most of the boron(More)
