In this study we examined the influence of complete spinal cord injury (SCI) on the mechanical characteristics of skeletal muscle in vivo within 6 months of the injury. Surface electrical stimulation (ES) was applied to the left m. quadriceps femoris of patients at 6, 11 and 24 weeks after injury. Surface ES was also applied to seven able-bodied controls(More)
The neuroendocrine effects of iv administration of clomipramine (CMI), a serotonin reuptake inhibitor, were studied in normal subjects. Under double blind, placebo-controlled conditions, single 10- and 20-mg doses of CMI were administered. Ten milligrams of CMI led to significant increases in plasma PRL and cortisol concentrations; plasma ACTH increased(More)
The neuroendocrine responsivity to an acute serotonergic challenge with low-dose i.v. clomipramine was studied in seven drug-free depressed patients and seven age-matched healthy control subjects. The depressed patients had higher baseline prolactin concentrations than the healthy subjects, and their prolactin response to clomipramine, assessed as either(More)
Report of a newborn with massive ascites who developed a severe coagulopathy due to multiple intrinsic and extrinsic clotting factor deficiencies. All deficient coagulation factors were present in measurable quantities in the infant's ascitic fluid. It is postulated that she sustained loss of coagulant proteins by transudation into her peritoneal cavity. A(More)
OBJECTIVE To test whether renal excretory function decreases after nitric oxide synthase inhibition during experimental hyperdynamic sepsis. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, controlled animal trial. SETTING Research laboratory at a large university medical center. SUBJECTS Chronically instrumented Merino breed ewes (n = 18). INTERVENTIONS Continuous(More)
Herpes simplex virus isolation by conventional cell culture in primary rabbit kidney cells (RK) was compared with Cultureset (CS). At 24 h CS was more sensitive (31 versus 25 of 55 isolates detected) than RK, but at 48 h there was little difference (43 detected by CS, 46 by RK). CS stained at 48 h was significantly less sensitive (78.2%) than RK observed(More)
Thromboxane may play an important role in the pathogenesis of smoked mediated injury. We studied this possibility in 13 chronically instrumented sheep, which had the left lung exposed to smoke. BM 13,177, a thromboxane receptor antagonist, was given intravenously to six animals prior to smoke inhalation and during the experimental period. Seven animals(More)
A pattern of excessive hip adduction and internal rotation with medial deviation of the knee has been associated with numerous musculo-skeletal dysfunctions. Research into the role that ankle dorsiflexion (DF) range of motion (ROM) play in lower limb kinematics is lacking. The objective of this cross-sectional, observational study was to investigate the(More)
