(Archives of Gerontology and Geriatrics, 2008-03-01) [Artigo]
This study aimed at evaluating and describing the QoL and its association with the severity of disease among Brazilian Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. In this cross-sectional study 68 PD patients were interviewed using ...
Exercise test and glucose homeostasis in rats treated with alloxan during the neonatal period or fed a high calorie diet
(Journal of Diabetes, 2009-03-01) [Artigo]
Background: Animal models appear well-suited for studies into the role of exercise in the prevention of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). The aim of the present study was to analyze glucose homeostasis and ...
The highest intensity and the shortest duration permitting attainment of maximal oxygen uptake during cycling: effects of different methods and aerobic fitness level
(European Journal of Applied Physiology, 2008-05-01) [Artigo]
The aims of this study were: (1) to verify the validity of previous proposed models to estimate the lowest exercise duration (T (LOW)) and the highest intensity (I (HIGH)) at which VO(2)max is reached (2) to test the ...
New meaning for the emotional state of the elderly, from a leisure standpoint
(Leisure Studies, 2008-01-01) [Artigo]
Continuing developments in science and technology that affect many dimensions of human life, especially those related to longevity, require responses from social policies and programmes to enable quality-of-life improvements ...
The validity of critical speed determined from track cycling for identification of the maximal lactate steady state
(Biology of Sport, 2002-01-01) [Artigo]
The objective of this study was to determine the critical speed (CS) for track cycling and to assess whether a lactate steady state occurs at this speed. Fourteen competitive cyclists performed the following tests on an ...

A digital-desk pilot program, named One Laptop Per Child (OPLC), in Brazil uses a unique display design to provide an interactive interface developed to enhance education and minimize ergonomic concerns. The one-to-one ...
Maximal lactate steady state in running mice: Effect of exercise training
(Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology and Physiology, 2007-08-01) [Artigo]
1. Maximal lactate steady state (MLSS) corresponds to the highest blood lactate concentration (MLSSc) and workload (MLSSw) that can be maintained over time without continual blood lactate accumulation and is considered an ...
Human eosinophil adhesion and degranulation stimulated with eotaxin and RANTES in vitro: Lack of interaction with nitric oxide
(BMC Pulmonary Medicine, 2008-08-12) [Artigo]
Background: Airway eosinophilia is considered a central event in the pathogenesis of asthma. The toxic components of eosinophils are thought to be important in inducing bronchial mucosal injury and dysfunction. Previous ...
Moderate physical training increases brain insulin concentrations in experimental diabetic rats
(Indian Journal of Experimental Biology, 2008-06-01) [Artigo]
Insulin is an important modulator of growth and metabolic function in the central nervous system. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of swimming physical training (at 32̈±1̈C, 1 hr/day, 5 days/week, ...
