It should be noted that the Air Force has not experienced any eye-safety incidents during employment of militarized versions of these systems and does not limit the operation of these systems in any portion of the flight regime for eye-safety reasons. It is important to consider that aircraft-based countermeasures do not typically invoke the need to include(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the proportions of type 1 and type 2 muscle fibres and the degree of muscle fibre atrophy and hypertrophy in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome in relation to lactate responses to exercise, and to determine to what extent any abnormalities found might be due to inactivity. METHODS Quadriceps needle muscle biopsies were obtained(More)
It has been shown previously that some patients with chronic fatigue syndrome show an abnormal increase in plasma lactate following a short period of moderate exercise, in the sub-anaerobic threshold exercise test (SATET). This cannot be explained satisfactorily by the effects of 'inactivity' or 'deconditioning', and patients with abnormal lactate responses(More)
PURPOSE The iridocorneal-endothelial (ICE) syndrome is characterized by glaucoma, corneal failure, and iris destruction. Specular photomicroscopy of the corneal endothelium in this disease shows a population of abnormal cells named ICE-cells. Comparison between ultrastructural examination and specular photomicroscopy demonstrates that the histologic(More)
Reduced intestinal CD4 T cell numbers and gastrointestinal disease are common features of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Duodenal lymphocyte densities and mucosal addressin cell adhesion molecule (MAdCAM)-1 expression were analyzed in patients with AIDS after highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). Compared with human immunodeficiency(More)
CONTEXT Randomized controlled trials in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) have shown that regular exercise, even without calorie restriction, reduces liver steatosis. A previous study has shown that 16 weeks of supervised exercise training in NAFLD did not affect total very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) kinetics. OBJECTIVE The objective of the(More)
This competitive immunoassay, based on inhibition by antigen of the idiotype-anti-idiotype interaction, detects adenosine deaminase binding protein (ABP), and involves use of monoclonal anti-idiotype antibodies prepared to a monoclonal antibody specific for ABP. The conditions for this new type of competitive immunoassay are investigated. This competitive(More)
This study showed that nonsearchers and searchers are different from each other on almost every measure that was applied. Research on and experience with searching adult adoptees should not be applied to nonsearching adult adoptees. Likewise, research on and experience with nonsearching adult adoptees should not be generalized to searchers . The results of(More)
