OBJECTIVE The effects of knee-high socks that applied different levels of compression (0, 10, 20, 30 and 40 mmHg) on various cardio-respiratory and metabolic parameters during submaximal running were analysed. METHODS Fifteen well-trained, male endurance athletes (age: 22.2 ± 1.3 years; peak oxygen uptake: 57.2 ± 4.0 mL/minute/kg) performed a ramp test to(More)
Pregnant mice were treated with a single subcutaneous injection of either cyproterone acetate (CA) or medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA). In the first experiment the animals received 5-900 mg/kg of the hormone before implantation (day 2 of pregnancy). CA treatment on day 2 caused a dose-dependent decrease in fetal weight and a significant dose-dependent(More)
Although intensive exercise protocols are commonly used in practical training and scientific studies, there is recently a great scientific discussion about "high intensity (interval) training" (HIT). New are the large amounts of studies and the more detailed knowledge about the physiological responses and adaptations to HIT in comparison to the classic high(More)
Haploidentical hematopoietic cell transplantation (HHCT) after high dose conditioning with CD34-selected stem cells has been complicated by high regimen related toxicities, slow engraftment and delayed immune reconstitution leading to increased treatment related mortality (TRM). A new regimen using reduced intensity conditioning (RIC) and graft CD3/CD19(More)
Three textiles with increasing compressive surface were compared with non-compressive conventional clothing on physiological and perceptual variables during sub-maximal and maximal running. Fifteen well-trained endurance athletes (mean+/-s: age 27.1+/-4.8 years, VO(2max) 63.7+/-4.9 ml x min(-1) x kg(-1)) performed four sub-maximal (approximately 70%(More)
OBJECTIVE CD3/CD19 depletion may improve engraftment and immune reconstitution after haploidentical hematopoietic cell transplantation (HHCT) as grafts not only contain CD34+ stem cells but also CD34- progenitors and natural killer, dendritic, and facilitating cells. PATIENTS AND METHODS Ten consecutive patients received HHCT with CD3/CD19-depleted(More)
Haploidentical hematopoietic cell transplantation (HHCT) using CD34 selected grafts is complicated by slow engraftment and immune reconstitution. Engraftment and immune reconstitution might be improved using CD3/CD19-depleted grafts and reduced intensity conditioning (RIC). We report on 28 patients after HHCT with CD3/CD19-depleted grafts using RIC, which(More)
