The effects of long-chain triglycerides and a mixture of free fatty acid on the adaptive response to small bowel resection were examined. Rats with a 50% small bowel resection were divided into four groups. Two received 10% of their calories intragastrically either as corn oil or as free fatty acid and the remaining calories intravenously while the two(More)
Development of the human skeleton begins in early embryonic life and continues through childhood into early adulthood. The acquisition of peak bone mass during these vulnerable periods may impact on skeletal fragility in later adult years. Once the skeleton has reached maturity, bone remodelling continues with periodic replacement of old bone with new at(More)
The levels of insulin-like growth factor II/mannose-6-phosphate (IGF-II/Man-6-P) receptor and the insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) receptor were measured in the intestinal epithelium after 50% resection of the small intestine. Controls were either pair-fed to match the reduced food intake of the resected group or fed ad libitum. [125I]IGF-II binding was(More)
The case-cohort design (Prentice, 1986) and the synthetic case-& Breslow, 1978) are economical alternatives to the traditional full-cohort design for the study of chronic diseases. By processing covariate information on all the events and only a fraction of those subjects who do not experience the outcome of interest, substantial savings can be realized in(More)
