OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to test the hypothesis that exercise training reduces resting sympathetic neural activation in patients with chronic advanced heart failure. BACKGROUND Exercise training in heart failure has been shown to be beneficial, but its mechanisms of benefit remain unknown. METHODS Sixteen New York Heart Association class II(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine if abnormalities of sympathetic neural and vascular control are present in mild and/or severe heart failure (HF) and to determine the underlying afferent mechanisms. Patients with severe HF, mild HF, and age-matched controls were studied. Muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) and forearm vascular resistance(More)
Carcasses of sixty-three Nellore bulls slaughtered at a commercial beef plant were randomly selected by dental classification (2, 4, 6 or 8 permanent incisors) in order to evaluate the influence of dental maturity on carcass traits and meat quality. Carcasses with 8 permanent incisors (p.i.) had greatest values (P<0.05) of carcass weight and longissimus(More)
AIMS Endomyocardial fibrosis (EMF) is a restrictive cardiomyopathy manifested mainly by diastolic heart failure. It is recognized that diastole is an important determinant of exercise capacity. The purpose of this study was to determine whether resting echocardiographic parameters might predict oxygen consumption (VO(2p)) by ergoespirometry and the(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the effects of ground corn or liquid molasses fed as the sole supplemental nonstructural carbohydrate (NSC) source on production performance, milk fatty acid (FA) profile, grazing behavior, and N metabolism in grazing dairy cows. A strip-grazing management system was used, with cows offered a new strip of fresh(More)
