We undertook this study to determine whether there are differences in the responses of different persons to long-term overfeeding and to assess the possibility that genotypes are involved in such differences. After a two-week base-line period, 12 pairs of young adult male monozygotic twins were overfed by 4.2 MJ (1000 kcal) per day, 6 days a week, for a(More)
The histopathology of 23 radical prostatectomies from patients with prostatic adenocarcinoma pretreated for 3-6 months with combination therapy including a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone agonist and the antiandrogen drug flutamide was reviewed and compared with the pretreatment biopsies or transurethral resection material. After combination therapy,(More)
We followed total prostate and prostatic tumor volumes in patients who received combination endocrine therapy with the antiandrogen flutamide and the LHRH agonist [D-Trp6,des-Gly-NH2(10)]LHRH ethylamide. Twenty-three men with proved prostatic adenocarcinoma (Stages B1 to D2) were subjected to a transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) study before and after a(More)
Computed tomography (CT) was used to study the association between adipose tissue localization and glucose tolerance in a sample of 52 premenopausal obese women aged 35.7 +/- 5.5 yr (mean +/- SD) and with a body fat of 45.9 +/- 5.5%. Body-fat mass and the body mass index (BMI) were significantly correlated with plasma glucose, insulin, and connecting(More)
1. Abdominal obesity is associated with numerous metabolic complications. Deep abdominal adipose tissue is critical in the association between the level of abdominal obesity and cardiovascular risk factors. 2. Adipose tissue localization was assessed by computed axial tomography (CAT), and its association with body density and anthropometric measurements(More)
Prospective studies have shown that excess abdominal fat is associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease and related death. We used computed axial tomography (CAT) to assess the association between deep and subcutaneous abdominal adipose tissue and plasma lipoprotein levels in a sample of 52 premenopausal obese women aged 35.7 +/- 5.5 years(More)

The effect of further adrenal androgen blockade with aminoglutethimide (AG) plus low dose hydrocortisone (HC) was studied in 119 patients with clinical stage D2 prostate cancer who previously progressed after standard hormone therapy and were under progression while receiving the combination therapy with Flutamide and castration. Using the objective(More)
