Thirty-six patients with lateral epicondylitis of the elbow (19 women, 17 men, median age 48 yrs) were treated either with active laser or placebo, 18 patients in each group. The active laser was a GA-AL-AS 30 mW/830 nm low power laser (LPL). The study design was double blind and randomized. The treatment session consisted of eight treatments, two per week.(More)
Various indices of thyroid function were measured in rats at early (2 to 26 days) and at late (up to 55 weeks) intervals after the onset of an iodine deficient diet (LID). Control groups received the same diet with iodine-supplemented drinking water. The measurements included: thyroid total 127I concentration, thyroid weight, [131i] mit/[131i]dit and(More)

Since this is a major determinant of whole-blood viscosity (WBV) and rigid RBCs increase WBV disproportionately relative to the level of hematocrit, it is conceivable that sustained improvement of hematocrit with recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) therapy(More)
