The present study aimed to test the influence of the pedalling technique on the occurrence of muscular fatigue and on the energetic demand during prolonged constant-load cycling exercise. Subjects performed two prolonged (45 min) cycling sessions at constant intensity (75% of maximal aerobic power). In a random order, participants cycled either with their(More)
In healthy normolipidaemic and normoglycaemic control subjects, HDL are able to reverse the inhibition of vasodilation that is induced by oxidised LDL. In type 2 diabetic patients, HDL are glycated and more triglyceride-rich than in control subjects. These alterations are likely to modify the capacity of HDL to reverse the inhibition of vasodilation induced(More)
In healthy individuals, HDL can counteract the inhibition of vasorelaxation induced by oxidised LDL. Several abnormalities such as increased size, glycation and decreased paraoxonase activity have been reported for HDL from type 1 diabetic patients. Thus, we hypothesised that the ability of HDL to protect vessels against impairments of vasorelaxation would(More)
It has been shown that the ability of humans to maintain a quiet standing posture is degraded after fatigue of the muscles at the ankle. Yet, it has also been shown that skin stimulation at the ankle could improve postural performance. In the present study, we addressed the issue of the interaction of these two effects. Subjects were tested with the eyes(More)
This study analysed the time course of neuro-mechanical changes underlying stretch–shortening cycle during intermittent exhaustive rebound exercise. On a sledge apparatus, ten subjects repeated until exhaustion a series of 30 unilateral submaximal rebounds, with intermediate 3-min rest periods. Rebound height, ground reaction force, 3D tibial acceleration(More)
This study analyses the finger force sharing using power grip task with adapted experimental conditions. This paradigm limits as much as possible the external constraints when the Index (I), Middle (M), Ring (R) and Little (L) fingers act simultaneously: the thumb did not oppose the other fingers and no secondary moments were applied to the wrist. The motor(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the prevalence of resistance to rilpivirine and mutations at position 138 in reverse transcriptase and to identify associated epidemiological and biological characteristics. METHODS This retrospective study included 238 patients with available HIV-1 nucleotide sequences analysed at the Laboratory of Virology at the University Hospital(More)
