OBJECTIVE To investigate systemic and intrathecal production of proinflammatory cytokines in relation to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) nitric oxide (NO) release in patients with neuropsychiatric lupus erythematosus (NPLE). METHODS Thirty patients with NPLE rated as mild, moderate, or severe were studied and CSF was obtained from 21 of these. Cytokine mRNA(More)
A previous study showed that adult female dancers have a high percentage of type I fibres in vastus lateralis, similar to that of endurance-trained female runners or female cross-country skiers. It is not known if dancers already at an early age are characterized by a high percentage of type I fibres or develop a high percentage of type I fibres as a(More)
In the present structural study the authors investigated the border of permanent tympanic membrane (TM) perforations in patients selected for myringoplasty. Furthermore, a panel of monoclonal antibody markers that recognize different epitopes within glycosaminoglycans as well as antibodies to epidermal growth factor and fibronectin were applied to the(More)
Dietary intake of energy, protein, fat and carbohydrates in female dance students compared to female music students was estimated by a dietary history method. Energy requirement was estimated from body weight and physical activity both by a standard formula and from the measured work intensity during dance training. Meal patterns showed significant(More)
Thirty consecutive patients with permanent perforations of their tympanic membranes (TM) present from 2.5 to 50 years (mean 18.7 years) were admitted to a prospective study using two alternative methods of dressings for closure of the perforations. An adhesive-coated hydrocolloid material was compared with a conventional dressing of vaseline impregnated(More)
In several studies estimated energy intake has been found to be low compared with estimated energy expenditure in female athletes. It has therefore been suggested that female athletes may have a depressed basal energy expenditure (BMR). The main purpose of the present study was to explore this possibility by measuring BMR in physically extremely active(More)
NRU (“near you”) is a new mobile phone application for finding nearby activities. The application displays restaurants, bars, cafes, and so forth close to the user, on a display that updates as the user rotates it and moves it around his or her body, encouraging real-world interaction. This device is a simplified form of augmented reality that works on an(More)
Muscle biopsies were taken from female dancers, aged 24 +/- 2 years, first during an active period and then after 32 weeks of detraining. During the active period, the percentage of type I fibers was 63% +/- 12%, and of the subgroups IIA, IIB, and IIC, 26% +/- 9%, 8% +/- 7%, and 3% +/- 3%, respectively. There was no significant change due to detraining(More)
