  • Effets de l'oxygénation sur la réponse ventilatoire au CO₂ chez l'homme à haute et basse altitude 

    Lefrançois, R; Pasquis, P; Gautier, H; Monconduit, MF (Journal de Physiologie, 1969)
    L’anhydride carbonique intervient dans la régulation de la ventilation pulmonaire par un double mécanisme : d’une part central, et, d’autre part réflexe, par action sur les chémorécepteurs artériels. La réponse ventilatoire ...
  • Maternal oxygen delivery is not related to altitude- and ancestry-associated differences in human fetal growth 

    Zamudio, Stacy; Postigo, Lucrecia; Illsley, Nicholas P; Rodriguez, Carmelo; Heredia, Gladys; Brimacombe, Michael; Echalar, Lourdes; Torricos, Tatiana; Tellez, Wilma; Maldonado, Ivan; Balanza Erquicia, Elfride; Alvarez, Tatiana; Ameller, Julio; Vargas, Enrique (J Physiol, 2007-09-16)
    Fetal growth is reduced at high altitude, but the decrease is less among long-resident populations. We hypothesized that greater maternal uteroplacental O2 delivery would explain increased fetal growth in Andean natives ...
  • Seasonal modulation of reproductive effort during early pregnancy in humans 

    Vitzthum, Virginia J; Thornburg, Jonathan; Spielvogel, Hilde (American Journal of Human Biology, 2009-03-03)
    A B S T R A C T Life history theory predicts that early pregnancy presents a relatively low cost, uncontested opportunity for a woman to terminate investment in a current reproductive opportunity if a conceptus is of poor ...
