All groups had blood and saliva samples collected before and after either a 30 minute rest condition (Control group) or a 30 minute cyberphysiologic strategy (Experimental groups) to increase neutrophil adherence. These samples(More)
This study was designed to determine whether increases or decreases in neutrophil adherence could be achieved following a self-regulation (relaxation/imagery) intervention. Fifteen subjects were randomly assigned to one of three conditions. Two experimental groups employed imagery focussed on either increasing or decreasing neutrophil adherence. Subjects(More)
Forty-nine children with short stature (age range, 4.1-15.9 yr) were examined. Twenty-four (group 1) were submitted twice to an arginine and a sleep test (12-h overnight GH profile). Twenty-five patients (group 2) were submitted twice to an arginine and L-dopa test. Coefficients of variation were calculated between both the results of pharmacological (peak(More)
