OBJECTIVES: Small-bodied folivores are rare because processing leaves often requires extensive gut adaptations and lengthy retention times for fiber fermentation. However, the <1 kg nocturnal white-footed sportive lemurs (Lepilemur leucopus) persist on a leaf-based diet. We investigated how extrinsic (i.e., seasonality in temperature and food availability) and intrinsic factors (i.e., reproductive state) influence nutrient intake and explored how nutrient and energy needs are met in this species...

Group-living folivorous primates can experience competition for food, and feeding competition has also been documented for solitarily foraging gummivorous and omnivorous primates. However, little is known about the types and consequences of feeding competition in solitary folivorous foragers. We conducted this study in the spiny forest of Berenty Reserve, southern Madagascar, to characterize the competitive regime of the nocturnal solitarily foraging white-footed sportive lemur (Lepilemur leucopus), a species that lives in dispersed pairs...

Doping in sports is the use of forbidden techniques and/or the assumption of prohibited substances by athletes in order to increase physical performances. The origin of the word doping is today still discussed; however some sources indicate that an African tribe, the Kaffirs, gave the name of "dop" to a beverage that was largely consumed in religious ceremonies as a stimulant drink. Diet modifications were among the most widely used procedures to increase physical performance in sports in the classical world...

UNLABELLED: The purpose was to determine whether 34 young Spanish males belonging to a cyclist team, follows the optimal macronutrients intake based on the recommended dietary guidelines. The deficits in nutrition jeopardise the sportive performances, but what about the diets with excessive intake of macronutrients? Furthermore, is there an association between their sports achievements and the psychological profile? Surely, but the problem is to determine which psychological variables are involved...

The physical load increase during training can lead to the development of clinical patterns of intolerance differing according to their severity, prognosis and reversibility. However, they always include fatigue as a key symptom. The aim of this paper is to review recent data on fatigue states in sportsmen, their clinical presentation and diagnostic orientations. A continuum exists, from acute fatigue states after one or several highly-intensive training sessions, to overreaching, associated to performances alteration which can be easily reversed, and to overtraining, representing a severe clinical pattern which can hardly be reversed...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to characterize the muscular reservoirs of phosphorilated energetic components of athletes using 31P-MRS. METHODS: The sample was formed by 14 elite athletes from the Center for High Sportive Performance (CAR, Sant Cugat del Vallés, Spain). The pattern of the phosphorilated metabolites was measured from the muscle vastus medialis by 31P-MRS. Oral supplementation of 20 g of Creatine monohydrate was given during 14 days. Two groups of athletes were formed according to their physical characteristics (weight, height, body mass index, maximum O2 uptake)...

In this study a questionnaire has been sent to 118 male patients about 21 months after the first myocardial infarction. The patients in question have suffered a first acute myocardial infarction in the second half-year of 1987 and have been hospitalized in ten different clinics around Zurich. 80 (72%) of the patients not older than 62 years have answered; 4 patients died. The results indicate that the treatment by the general practitioner has been assessed mostly positively; 63.7% of the patients were very content with the care provided by their general practitioner, 32...
