    • Cerebral glucose metabolism and cerebral blood flow in high-altitude residents 

      Sorensen, Soren C; Lassen, Niels A; Severinghaus, John W; Coudert, Jean; Paz Zamora, Mario (Journal of Applied Physiology, 1974)
      The present study was performed to evaluate the hypothesis that an increased H+ production by the brain from lactic acid formation during hypoxia a role in the lowering of the bicarbonate concentration. Twenty –three ...
    • Lactate dehydrogenase changes in diferent tissues in a chronical hypoxia adapted rat strain 

      Rossignol, Fabrice; Clottes, Eric; Solares, Magali; Balanza, Elfride; Coudert, Jean (High Altitude Medicine & Hygiene, 2002-04-18)
      We have previously shown that the maximal anaerobic power of highlander-bolivian children is more affected by their nutrition status rather than by altitude. To further link these observations to molecular measurements, ...
    • Point de rupture d'apnée volontaire au cours des hypoxies chronique et aiguë 

      Lefrançois, R; Gautier, H; Pasquis, P; Vargas, E (Journal de Physiologie, 1968)
      Un travail antérieur a montré que le mécanisme de la régulation de la ventilation est différent chez les sujets natifs des régions élevées et chez les sujets acclimatés à I'altitude (Lefrançois et coll., 1968 a). Dans ...
    • Pulmonary hypertension in high-altitude chronic hypoxia : response to nifedipine 

      Antezana, AM; Antezana, G; Aparicio, Olga; Noriega, I; Velarde, FL; Richalet, J-P (European Respiratory Journal, 1998-11)
      ABSTRACT: Permanent residents at high altitude may develop excessive polycythaemia (H-Hb) and pulmonary hypertension, which often leads to cardiac failure. Inhibitors of calcium channels have been shown to reverse pulmonary ...
    • Respuestas fisiológicas divergentes en ratas y ratones de laboratorio criadas a gran altitud 

      Gonzales Isidro, Marcelino (COLEGIO MEDICO DE BOLIVIA, 2016-02)
      Estudios ecológicos muestran que los ratones viven a gran altitud (GA) (Alturas - hasta 4000 m), mientras que las ratas están ausentes en estas altitudes, y no existen datos que expliquen esta diferencia. Utilizamos ratas ...
