Forty-two brothers, 66 dizygotic twins of both sexes and 106 monozygotic twins of both sexes, 16 to 34 yr of age, took part in this study that was designed to investigate the effect of heredity in aerobic performance. Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max), maximal heart rate (HR max), maximal ventilation, and maximal oxygen pulse were obtained from a progressive(More)
There are considerable interindividual differences in maximal oxygen uptake per kilogram of body weight (VO2 max/kg), maximal heart rate (max HR) and maximal blood lactate (max blood La) measured during a progressive exercise test. The aim of the study was to quantify the familial relationships for these variables. Parents and children of 38 families of(More)
Dynamic and electrophoretic light scattering were used to measure the size and charge heterogeneity of a commercial preparation of heparin. For this preparation of porcine mucosal heparin (M(r) = 10-20 kDa), the diffusion coefficient was 1.2 +/- 0.5 x 10(-8) cm2/S and the mobility was 4.4 +/- 0.9 x 10(-4) cm2/Vs for an unfiltered solution at 22 degrees C in(More)
We report the case of a 3-year-old penta-X female with two previously undescribed anomalies: hypoplastic kidney and absent ipsilateral ovary. The gross and histologic structure of the contralateral ovary was normal, suggesting that adults with this syndrome may be fertile.
Between 1979 and 1989, 133 carotid artery reconstructions were performed in 130 patients with contralateral internal carotid artery occlusion. These 133 reconstructions represent 7.3% of 1815 revascularizations of the internal carotid artery for atheromatous lesions performed during the same period. There were 113 men (87%) and 17 women (13%) whose mean age(More)
We report the familial occurrence in a French Canadian family of peptic ulcer/hiatal hernia, multiple lentigines/café-au-lait spots, apparent hypertelorism, and myopia caused by a pleiotropic autosomal dominant gene with high penetrance and variable expressivity. Other probable but rarer components of the syndrome include ischemic heart disease, congenital(More)
Conclusive evidence was obtained in this study that immunoelectrophoresis could be used in the identification of blood-stains in two particular cases: for diagnosis or approach to diagnosis of the age of a blood-stain, and for diagnosis of the human origin of a blood-stain that had been treated with petroleum products. Although many aspects should be(More)
