BACKGROUND Our goal was to determine whether short-term intermittent hypoxia exposure, at a level well tolerated by healthy humans and previously shown by our group to increase EPO and erythropoiesis, could mobilize hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) and increase their presence in peripheral circulation. METHODS Four healthy male subjects were subjected to(More)
Existing evidence suggests that body balance ability is associated with dental occlusion. The purpose of this study was to determine whether: (i) there are differences in balance between opposed dental occlusion (intercuspal position, ICP; cotton rolls, CR) for two extreme levels of stability and (ii) the influence of dental occlusion on the balance control(More)
Unaccustomed eccentric exercise is a well-documented cause of exercise-induced muscle damage. However, in trained subjects muscle injury involves only light or moderate tissue damage. Since trained rats are widely used as a model for skeletal muscle injury, here we propose a semiquantitative scoring tool to evaluate muscle damage in trained rats. Twenty(More)
Intermittent hypobaric hypoxia (IHH) exposure, accompanied or not with active recovery, can help to skeletal muscle repair. However, the erythropoietic response elicited can disturb blood rheology and thus alter the oxygen delivery to tissues. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were studied in two basal states: untrained and trained and compared with early (1-3 days)(More)
