AIM To assess the effects of L-arginine (L-Arg) supplementation on pulmonary oxidative stress and antioxidant defenses in rats after exhaustive exercise. METHODS Rats were randomly divided into four groups: sedentary control (SC), sedentary control with L-Arg treatment (SC+Arg), exhaustive exercise with control diet (E) and exhaustive exercise with L-Arg(More)
The present study was to investigate the effects of l-arginine (l-Arg) supplementation on cardiac oxidative stress and the inflammatory response in rats following acute exhaustive exercise on a treadmill. Rats were randomly divided into four groups: sedentary control (SC); SC with l-Arg treatment (SC+Arg); exhaustive exercise (E); exhaustive exercise with(More)
Engraftment syndrome (ES) is a toxicity of autologous stem cell transplantation that occurs unexpectedly and is occasionally fatal. This syndrome, manifested as fever, rash and pulmonary deterioration which becomes evident at marrow engraftment, has been described by several centers but as yet remains enigmatic. We describe this syndrome at a single(More)
We previously found that the exercise-induced elevation in GLUT4 mRNA of rat muscle can be rapidly down-regulated when glucose is given immediately following exercise. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of postexercise carbohydrate diet on GLUT4 and hexokinase (HK) II mRNA levels in the human skeletal muscle. Eight untrained male subjects(More)
BACKGROUND To examine whether short-term, ie, five daily sessions, vigorous dynamic cycling exercise and heat exposure could achieve heat acclimation in trained athletes and the effect of heat acclimation on cutaneous blood flow in the active and nonactive limb. METHODS Fourteen male badminton and table tennis athletes (age = 19.6 ± 1.2 years) were(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the effects of Eleutherococcus senticosus (ES) supplementation on endurance capacity, cardiovascular functions and metabolism of recreationally trained males for 8 weeks. Nine recreationally trained males in college consumed 800 mg/d of ES or starch placebo (P) for 8 weeks according to a double-blind, randomized, placebo(More)
We report long-term results of high-dose cyclophosphamide, etoposide and carboplatin with ABMT in 20 patients with metastatic breast cancer. Median age of the group was 41 years, ECOG performance status = 0 in 18 patients and 1 in two patients. Twelve patients had received adjuvant chemotherapy. Predominant sites of metastases were lung (eight), chest wall(More)
