The prevalence of obesity and afferent pathology in an active population

, : The prevalence of obesity and afferent pathology in an active population. Revista de Medicina Interna Neurologie Psihiatrie Neurochirurgie Dermato-Venerologie Serie Medicina Interna 37(1): 57-60

Analysis of the health status of an active population (3200 employees of the Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications) showed the presence of obesity in 560 subjects (17.5%). In 345 cases (61.6%) there was an overweight of 20-25% and in 221 cases (38.4%) an increase over the ideal weight of 30-40%. Most of the subjects (73%) belonged to the 51-60 years age group. Foremost on the list of etiopathogenic factors involved are the calorie intake and sedentarism; the genetic component was only detected in 8% of cases. In 65% the dyslipidemic biochemical syndrome was present. Worthy of note was the presence of some affections with an etiopathogenic conditioning in the obese subjects examined: arterial hypertension (53.3%), ischaemic heart disease (10.2%), diabetes mellitus (8.5%), hepatobiliary affections (11.07%), renal lithiasis (9%) and chronic degenerative rheumatism (25.6%). The study emphasizes the need to control obesity by interfering with the factors involved in its production, thus also preventing the afferent diseases.

P., 2002: The Hypocrea jecorina gal10 (uridine 5'-diphosphate-glucose 4-epimerase-encoding) gene differs from yeast homologues in structure, genomic organization and expression. As part of a comprehensive study on lactose metabolism in H. jecorina (anamorph: Trichoderma reesei), a genomic clone of the gal10 gene encoding H. jecorina uridine 5'-diphosphate (UDP)-glucose 4-epimerase is cloned and sequenced. It contains...

We have examined mRNA and protein distribution for the axon guidance molecules semaphorin3A, 3F, 4F and semaphorin receptors neuropilin-1 and 2, 1-21 days after intramedullary axotomy of rat lumbar spinal cord motoneurons. We show that semaphorin3...

Background: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are known to be potentially nephrotoxic agents. NSAIDs inhibit the enzyme cyclo-oxygenase and thereby block the prostagladin synthesis in the kidneys. Cyclo-oxygenase exists in two isoform...
