The merits of the 'vacuum form fixation' are discussed for the production of reliable body impressions of patients suffering from sitting problems. Impressions are taken with the patients seated in the desired posture. The first results are reported, obtained from 4 patients of different categories, fitted with individually moulded seats...

A cross-over study was done with 19 male and 23 female volunteers living in a monastery and a convent, respectively. The effect of a fat fish (mackerel) diet on the blood serum lipid composition was studied. As the normal diet of these volunteers was of the lacto-ovo-vegetarian type, a control diet in which the fish was replaced by full-fat...

A study has been made of the serum 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25-HCC) levels in six groups of women. Significant differences were found between the one pregnant group and the two reference groups as well as between the one pregnant group and two of the three groups using oral contraceptives. No significant differences were found between the...

Previous results had shown that bis-pyridinium oximes, particularly HI-6 are quite effective therapeutically in soman-poisoned rats and mice in vivo and in the rat diaphragm preparation in vitro. The aim of the present study was to investigate the efficacy of bis-pyridinium oximes on soman-inhibited neuromuscular transmission in muscle...

Impairment of fibrinolysis is supposed to contribute to CVD. In 38 hyperlipoproteinemic patients, known to be at risk for early CVD, fibrinolytic activity was measured before and after stimulation with DDAVP. A negative correlation was found between serum triglyceride levels and fibrinolytic activity, both before and after DDAVP. A subnormal...

Changes in circulating lipoproteins, which may be related to the risk for atherosclerotic vascular disease, were studied in a control group and in two groups of 24 or 26 women using different preparations of low-dose oral contraceptives for 3 months. One preparation contained 150 μg levo-norgestrel and 30 μg ethinylestradiol (Stediril-d 150/30);...

The incidence of childhood diabetes (0-19 years of age) in The Netherlands, where there is no nationalized health-care system, was investigated retrospectively in the years 1978 to 1980 inclusive. The method chosen was a questionnaire among all Dutch paediatricians and internal physicians acting as consultants. Ascertainment was by the same...

In nine patients with non-malignant diseases undergoing major upper abdominal surgery, the mechanism of the postoperative fibrinolytic shut-down was investigated because of its potential significance for postoperative deep vein thrombosis by employing new and specific methods for assessing and stimulating the fibrinolytic system. The shut-down...

The vitamin B6 status of women suffering from premenstrual symptoms (PMS, n = 19) and a group of matched controls (n = 19) has been investigated. The women volunteering in the study were selected on strictly defined criteria. Several biochemical parameters of the metabolism of vitamin B6 and tryptophan were studied in blood and urine samples...

In a study of severe, decompensated liver failure, we tried to find a correlation between hemorrhage and parameters of hemostasis and fibrinolysis. Three groups of patients were studied: alcoholic cirrhosis; nonalcoholic cirrhosis, and acute liver failure without known prior liver disease. The two cirrhotic groups did not differ significantly...

Two hundred and three patients with venous thrombophilia were investigated in order to find out whether an elevated plasma concentration of plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI) could be a cause of their tendency to thrombosis. The patients were studied in an asymptomatic period about 3 months after their last thromboembolic episode. PAI...

During chemotherapy with a cisplatin-containing combination of drugs, 217 blood samples from 30 cancer patients were analyzed for the presence of the main cisplatin-DNA adduct cis-Pt(NH3)2d(pGpG) (Pt-GG). Cisplatin was administered during 3-h infusions on each of 5 consecutive days, resulting in increasing adduct levels which, on the average,...

The association between breast cancer and selenium, measured in the diet, plasma, erythrocytes, and toenails, was investigated in a case-control study in the Netherlands during 1985-1987. Dietary selenium intake was assessed by a structured dietary history technique among 133 breast cancer cases and 238 population controls. Absolute and energy...

An experiment was set up to quantify the relative influence of fitness, acclimatization, gender and anthropometric measures on physiological responses to heat stress. For this purpose, 12 male and 12 female subjects were exposed to a neutral [ambient temperature (T(a)) 21°C, relative humidity (r.h. 50%)], a warm, humid (T(a) 34°C, r.h. 80%) and...

When the eyes pursue a fixation point that sweeps across a moving background pattern, and the fixation point is suddenly made to stop, the ongoing motion of the background pattern seems to accelerate to a higher velocity. Experiment I showed that this acceleration illusion is not caused by the sudden change in (i) the relative velocity between...

Combinations of dietary factors were studied in relation to breast-cancer occurrence among 133 breast cancer cases and 289 population controls in The Netherlands. Dietary factors were classified according to their possible mechanism of action, i.e., relating either to the intestinal microflora (total fat, fiber, fermented milk products) or to...

Three visual search experiments tested whether top-down selectivity toward particular stimulus dimensions is possible during preattentive parallel search. Subjects viewed multielement displays in which two salient items, each unique in a different dimension—that is, color and intensity (Experiment 1) or color and form (Experiments 2 and 3)—were...

The expression of both platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) and epidermal growth factor (EGF), and of their receptors was examined immunohistochemically in a number of normal tissues as well as in benign and malignant mesenchymal tumors. The benign lesions studied were from the skin: palmar fibromatosis (fibroblastic) and from the uterus:...
