Seventeen male physical education students performed three types of treadmill exercise: (1) progressive exercise to exhaustion, (2) prolonged exercise of 50 min duration at the anaerobic threshold of 4 mmol·1−1 blood lactate (AE), (3) a single bout of short-term high-intensity exercise at 156% of maximal exercise capacity in the progressive test, leading to(More)
BACKGROUND As with endoscopic transmural drainage of peripancreatic fluid collections, the same transluminal access can be expanded to introduce an endoscope through the gastrointestinal wall into the retroperitoneum and remove infected pancreatic necroses under direct visual control. This study reports the first large series with long-term follow-up. (More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Screening colonoscopy with polypectomy has been shown to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with colorectal cancer. However, there is a lack of large and systematic prospective studies of the complications of polypectomy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Data on all snare polypectomies performed in 13 institutions (six hospitals(More)
To examine the metabolic and hormonal responses to non-exhaustive steady-state exercise at the individual anaerobic threshold (IAT), 12 male physical education students performed treadmill exercise of 50 min duration. The treadmill speed equaled that at the IAT as assessed in a standardized progressive exercise test (75 +/- 2% of maximal oxygen uptake).(More)
PURPOSE Treatment of low-grade gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma by eradication of Helicobacter pylori is reported to result in complete lymphoma remission in approximately 75% of cases. The effect that cure of the infection has on the course of a primary high-grade gastric lymphoma is largely uncertain. The aim of this study was to report(More)
Blood pressure responses to 1 week of low-salt (20 mmol sodium/d) and high-salt (300 mmol sodium/d) intake were investigated in a single-blind randomized study in 163 white, nonobese normotensive subjects (65 women and 98 men; mean age, 38 +/- 1.2 years). The individuals were classified as salt sensitive when mean arterial blood pressure rose by at least 5(More)

BACKGROUND/AIMS Anti-Helicobacter pylori treatment with combinations of omeprazole and amoxicillin is a promising treatment option. The aim of this study was to investigate whether a daily omeprazole dose of 120 mg combined with amoxicillin would cure H. pylori infection at a rate comparable with that achieved with "triple therapy." METHODS In a(More)
