BACKGROUND It was previously demonstrated that drinking water significantly elevates the resting energy expenditure (REE) in adults, and that low water intake is associated with obesity and lesser success in weight reduction. This study addressed the potential of water drinking to increase the REE in children, as an additional tool for weight management. (More)
Sensitive bacteria, when infected with a temperate phage, either lyse or become lysogenic. With the temperate phage Pl and its host Shigella dysenteriae, the outcome of infection is affected strikingly by temperature. The discovery of this temperature effect has allowed us to study some features of the lysogenization process; these will be described in this(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to examine by means of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) whether dilating blocked coronary arteries in patients with coronary heart disease will improve relevant attributes measured during cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET). METHODS Fourteen myocardial ischemia patients (13 male, 1 female; age range:(More)
BACKGROUND Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) is the most common genetic syndrome causing life-threatening obesity. Strict adherence to a low-calorie diet and regular physical activity are needed to prevent weight gain. Direct measurement of maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max), the "gold standard" for assessing aerobic exercise capacity, has not been previously(More)
BACKGROUND Physical exercise has been shown to improve lung condition or to slow deterioration in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and improves their quality of life. This study analyzes the physical exercise capacity and the level of aerobic fitness of adolescents and adults with CF who are patients at the CF Center at Hadassah Medical Center Mount(More)
BACKGROUND Most cycling studies involve professional cyclists. Because training may affect riding style, it is of interest to determine the physiological basis for the personal choice of cycling cadence in nonprofessional cyclists. METHODS Eleven nonprofessional (5.2±1.7-year-riding experience) male road cyclists, aged 35.0±11.0 years, underwent four(More)
