Comparaison isoenzymatique de deux populations boliviennes (altitude et plaine) de Triatoma infestans (Hemiptera, Reduviidae)
Résumé. Les auteurs comparent 2 populations boliviennes (altitude et plaine) de Triatoma infestans par l’analyse de 6 loci enzimatiques (enzymes phosphoglucomutase, malate déshydrogénse nad dépendante, malate déshydrogénase ...
Circulating proteins and iron status in blood as indicators of the mutritional status of 10- to 12-year-old Bolivian boys
(Int. J. Sports Med., 1994)
Abstract. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the nutritional status of children based on anthropometric measurements, biochemical indicators of protein energy malnutrition as well as hematological variables. ...
Anthropometry and lung function of 10- to 12-year-old Bolivian boys
(Int. J. Sports Med., 1994)
Abstract. Anthropometric measurements of 23 HAHSES, 44 HALSES, 43 LAHSES, and 28 LALSES boys (see Introduction to this Supplement) are presented here. They include body height (H), body weight (BW), upper arm circumference ...
Maternal PRKAA1 and EDNRA genotypes are associated with birth weight, and PRKAA1 with uterine artery diameter and metabolic homeostasis at high altitude
(Physiol Genomics, 2014-07-14)
Low birth weight and intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) increase the risk of mortality and morbidity during the perinatal period as well as in adulthood. Environmental and genetic factors contribute to IUGR, but the ...
The effect of high altitude on platelet counts, thrombopoietin and erythropoietin levels in young Bolivian airmen visiting the Andes
(Int J Biometeorol, 1999)
Abstract. Recognition of thrombosis as a complication of exposure to high altitude has stimulated interest in rheological changes resulting from hypobaric hypoxia. Previous studies of platelet counts at high altitude have ...
Fisiología del ejercicio en la altura
(COLEGIO MEDICO DE BOLIVIA, 2016-02)
RESUMEN. La fisiología del ejercicio es la ciencia que estudia las modificaciones en la estructura y función de los órganos y sistemas que integran el cuerpo humano y su relación con el medio externo durante el ejercicio ...
Influencia de la hipoxia intermitente en el mal crónico de montaña y su implicancia en la terapéutica
(COLEGIO MEDICO DE BOLIVIA, 2016-02-24)
Absence of work efficiency differences during cycle ergometry exercise in Bolivian Aymara
(High Altitude Medicine & Biology, 2004)
ABSTRACT. This study tested the hypothesis that Andean natives are adapted to high altitude (HA) via high work ef ficiency during exercise in hypoxia. A total of 186 young males and females were tested in Bo livia, ...
Pulmonary-artery pressure and exhaled nitric oxide in Bolivian and caucasian high altitude dwellers
(High Altitude Medicine & Biology, 2008)
Abstract. There is evidence that high altitude populations may be better protected from hypoxic pulmonary hypertension than low altitude natives, but the underlying mechanism is incompletely understood. In Tibetans, ...
Bioenergetic studies in residents at high altitude (2,850 m) with asymptomatic Chagas'disease
(Ann. Soc. Belge Med. Trop., 1985)
Summary. Cardiovascular response and working capacity were studied at rest and during a 125 W exercise in residents at high altitude (2,850 m), comparing 2l asymptomatic (normal EKG) bul T. cruzi infected subjects (positive ...
