Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction was produced in 12 asthmatic patients after a 6 minutes run on a 10% steep treadmill ergometer. FEV1 decreased by 12-73% (average 27%) of the control value measured before the run. The rather severe exercise-induced bronchoconstriction remained constant for 10-20 minutes after the run. 21 minutes after the run two puffs(More)
Postural medicine studies the effects of gravity on human body functions and the ability to influence various diseases by changing the body's position. Orthostasis requires numerous cardiovascular and neurohumoral adaptations to prevent hypotension and a resulting decrease in cerebral perfusion. Sitting upright or in a semi-sitting position reduces venous(More)
A 20-year-old female presented with thyrotoxicosis associated with amenorrhoea and galactorrhoea after oral contraceptive withdrawal. Serum TSH was persistently elevated (mean: 28 +/- 3.1 microU/ml during 24-h sampling and did not vary significantly after TRH, bromocriptine or somatostatin. Prolactin levels remained constantly at the upper limit of normal(More)
To determine the times of the appearance of myoblasts, early myotubes, late myotubes, and myofibers, we studied a region between two aponeuroses of the medial pterygoid masticatory muscle in embryos of two strains of rabbits, without disturbing the normal innervation. The objectives of this study were to define the quantitative relations among these cells(More)
