OBJECTIVE With advancing age, there is a gradual loss of muscle mass, strength, and functionality. The current studies were conducted to determine whether a mixture of specific nutrients, arginine and lysine, which support protein synthesis, and beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB), which can slow protein breakdown, could blunt the gradual loss of muscle(More)
PURPOSE Exercise increases the use of amino acids for glucose production and stimulates the oxidation of amino acids and other substrates to provide ATP for muscular contraction, and thus the availability of amino acids and energy for postexercise muscle protein synthesis may be limiting. The purpose of this study was to determine the potential of(More)
Elevated postexercise amino acid availability has been demonstrated to enhance muscle protein synthesis acutely, but the long-term impact of postexercise protein supplementation on variables such as health, muscle soreness, and function are unclear. Healthy male US Marine recruits from six platoons (US Marine Corps Base, Parris Island, SC; n = 387; 18.9 +/-(More)
The effects of etorphine, a potent morphine-like drug, were qualitatively and quantitatively compared to those of morphine. In nondependent subjects, etorphine in doses of 0.025, 0.050, and 0.100 mg produced pupillary constriction and morphine-like subjective effects and euphoria. Etorphine was 500 times as potent as morphine, with a very rapid onset and(More)
BACKGROUND Posterior-stabilized rotating-platform prostheses for TKAs were designed to improve contact mechanics at the femoral-polyethylene (PE) interface. Short-term followup studies have shown that the PE bearings rotate with respect to the tibia but might not necessarily track with the femur. It is important to know how kinematics in these designs(More)
Conservation covenants and easements have become essential tools to secure biodiversity outcomes on private land, and to assist in meeting international protection targets. In Australia, the number and spatial area of conservation covenants has grown significantly in the past decade. Yet there has been little research or detailed policy analysis of(More)
Study Design We present a patient-specific computer model created to translate two-dimensional (2D) fluoroscopic motion data into three-dimensional (3D) in vivo biomechanical motion data. Objective The aim of this study is to determine the in vivo biomechanical differences in patients with and without acute low back pain. Current dynamic imaging of the(More)
BACKGROUND Basilar artery stroke causes substantial morbidity and mortality. Although its unusual clinical presentation potentially contributes to a delay in diagnosis, this problem has not been systematically studied. We compared intervals between symptom onset, initial presentation, and diagnosis in stroke due to basilar artery (BA) versus left middle(More)
