The mechanisms underlying poor glucose tolerance in persons with spinal cord injury (SCI), along with its improvement after several weeks of neuromuscular electrical stimulation-induced resistance exercise (NMES-RE) training, remain unclear, but presumably involve the affected skeletal musculature. We, therefore, investigated skeletal muscle signaling(More)
We investigated the effects of an acute bout of neuromuscular electrical stimulation-induced resistance exercise (NMES-RE) on intracellular signaling pathways involved in translation initiation and mechanical loading-induced muscle hypertrophy in spinal cord-injured (SCI) versus able-bodied (AB) individuals. AB and SCI individuals completed 90 isometric(More)
STUDY DESIGN Two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of fampridine sustained-release tablets (fampridine-SR) 25 mg twice daily for moderate-to-severe spasticity in patients with chronic spinal cord injury (SCI). SETTING United States and Canada. METHODS Patients with incomplete chronic SCI(More)
Individuals with long-standing spinal cord injury (SCI) often present with extreme muscle atrophy and impaired glucose metabolism at both the skeletal muscle and whole body level. Persistent inflammation and increased levels of proinflammatory cytokines in the skeletal muscle are potential contributors to dysregulation of glucose metabolism and atrophy;(More)
