UNLABELLED Limitations of current methods: Normalization of resting energy expenditure (REE) for body composition using the 2-compartment model fat mass (FM), and fat-free mass (FFM) has inherent limitations for the interpretation of REE and may lead to erroneous conclusions when comparing people with a wide range of adiposity as well as before and after(More)
Electroencephalogram (EEG), brain stem auditory-evoked potential, and flash visual-evoked potential recordings were taken from healthy sheep and from 3 sheep with scrapie, a CNS slow virus infection. The EEG changes included semi-periodic, polyphasic, high-voltage sharp waves (bilaterally synchronous and symmetric in all channels), and a cyclic alternating(More)
Age-related changes in organ and tissue masses may add to changes in the relationship between resting energy expenditure (REE) and fat free mass (FFM) in normal and overweight healthy Caucasians. Secondary analysis using cross-sectional data of 714 healthy normal and overweight Caucasian subjects (age 18-83 years) with comprehensive information on FFM,(More)
Primary cerebral lymphomas (PCL) were diagnosed with increasing frequency also in our retrospective study of 44 patients. Clinically these tumors presented with signs of a rapidly growing brain neoplasm. The analysis of CCT data showed that the tumors were of varying density before and showed mostly (60%) homogeneous enhancement after contrast medium(More)
The aim of this review is to extend present concepts of body composition and to integrate it into physiology. In vivo body composition analysis (BCA) has a sound theoretical and methodological basis. Present methods used for BCA are reliable and valid. Individual data on body components, organs and tissues are included into different models, e.g. a 2-, 3-,(More)
A surgical technique to cannulate the rete testis of the goat was utilized to examine the effects of rete testis fluid (RTF) deprivation on the enzymatic activity of epididymal 5 alpha-reductase. Kinetic techniques were used to determine whether the regional enzymatic effect of RTF deprivation is to decrease the apparent number of 5 alpha-reductase active(More)
Observations on three children with neurolisteriosis (one case of meningitis, two cases of meningoencephalitis, each Serovar 4 b), show that even after the neonatal period, listeriosis must not be ignored in the process of diagnosis and therapy. It is the bacteriological examination of the cerebrospinal fluid, together with the blood culture, and not(More)
Attempts were made to treat 50 patients suffering from various types of chronic pain with SCS (PISCES). In 33 patients the test stimulation was successful so that an implantation of the system was carried out. After a minimum observation period of two years, only six patients still reported satisfactory alleviation of pain. A more careful selection of(More)
Immature and postpuberal female rats were ovariectomized at 20 or 27 days of age or on the day of the first vaginal oestrus and chronically implanted with oestradiol benzoate (OB) and cholesterol at the ratios of 1 : 60, 1 : 120 or 1 : 240 on the day following castration. Autopsy was performed on day 6 after implantation and the plasma LH concentration(More)
