BACKGROUND In order to evaluate the impact of in-flight stress on BP and sympathetic activity during a short fixed-wing flight, we have studied 18 healthy and normotensive commercial captain aviators, aged 37.5 +/- 4.9 yr. METHODS The protocol consisted of a 120-min flight period, divided into segments of pre-flight, take off, mid-cruise, approach and(More)
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) can induce a shift in prostaglandin and leukotriene synthesis. The effects of EPA supplementation of the diet on the progression of chronic renal failure (CRF) were evaluated in a model of 5/6 renal mass ablation in rats. After 30 or 60 days of CRF, elevation in single-nephron glomerular filtration rate due to an increase in(More)

1. The effects of chronically administered cicletanine (CICL), an antihypertensive and prostacyclin stimulating agent, on glomerular hemodynamics were evaluated after 30 (CRF-30) or 60 (CRF-60) days of chronic renal failure (CRF) induced by 5/6 nephrectomy in Munich-Wistar rats. 2. CICL administration (3 mg kg-1 day-1, N = 5) for 60 days did not modify(More)
