(East Carolina University, 2007-04)
Objective: To review 16 years of National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) injury surveillance data for men’s football and identify potential areas for injury prevention initiatives. Background: Football is a ...
Recreational Therapy Services and the Functional Independence of Inpatient Pediatric Population
(East Carolina University, 2009)
Recreational Therapy (RT) is a relatively new and growing profession with an expanding body of literature. The benefits of RT services have been demonstrated through research studies for several decades. However; there is ...
A survey of energy drink consumption patterns among college students
(East Carolina University, 2007-10-31)
Background: Energy drink consumption has continued to gain in popularity since the 1997 debut of Red Bull, the current leader in the energy drink market. Although energy drinks are targeted to young adult consumers, there ...
AMP-activated protein kinase response to contractions and treatment with the AMPK activator AICAR in young adult and old skeletal muscle
(East Carolina University, 2009-05-01)
One characteristic of aging skeletal muscle is a decline in mitochondrial function. Activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK)occurs in response to an increased AMP/ATP ratio,which is one potential result of ...
Exercise Training Amount and Intensity Effects on Metabolic Syndrome (From Studies of a Targeted Risk Reduction Intervention through Defined Exercise)
(East Carolina University, 2007-12-15)
Although exercise improves individual risk factors of the metabolic syndrome (MS), there is little research on the effect of exercise on MS as a whole. The objective of this study was to determine how much exercise is ...
Impaired overload-induced muscle growth is associated with diminished translational signalling in aged rat fast-twitch skeletal muscle
(East Carolina University, 2006-07-01)
Impaired overload-induced protein synthesis and growth in aged fast-twitch skeletal muscle may result from diminished responsiveness of signalling intermediates controlling protein translation. Yet, potential age-related ...
The Intensive Diet and Exercise for Arthritis (IDEA) trial: design and rationale
(East Carolina University, 2009-07-28)
Background: Obesity is the most modifiable risk factor, and dietary induced weight loss potentially the best nonpharmacologic intervention to prevent or to slow osteoarthritis (OA) disease progression. We are currently ...
Regulation of GLUT4 expression in denervated skeletal muscle
(East Carolina University, 2009-03)
Denervation by sciatic nerve resection causes decreased muscle glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) expression, but little is known about the signaling events that cause this decrease. Experiments were designed to test the ...
Increased Secretion and Expression of Myostatin in Skeletal Muscle From Extremely Obese Women
(East Carolina University, 2009-01)
OBJECTIVE- Obesity is associated with endocrine abnormalities that predict the progression of insulin resistance to type 2 diabetes. Because skeletal muscle has been shown to secrete proteins that could be used as biomarkers, ...
