UNLABELLED Ginger has been shown to exert anti-inflammatory effects in rodents, but its effect on human muscle pain is uncertain. Heat treatment of ginger has been suggested to enhance its hypoalgesic effects. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of 11 days of raw (study 1) and heat-treated (study 2) ginger supplementation on muscle pain.(More)
PURPOSE A phase I dose escalation study was performed with systemically delivered lyso-thermosensitive liposomal doxorubicin (LTLD). The primary objectives were to determine the safe maximum tolerated dose (MTD), pharmacokinetic properties, and dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) of LTLD during this combination therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Subjects eligible(More)
INTRODUCTION Blood flow restriction (BFR), the application of external pressure to occlude venous return and restrict arterial inflow, has been shown to increase muscular size and strength when combined with low-load resistance exercise. BFR in the research setting uses a wide range of pressures, applying a pressure based upon an individual's systolic(More)
UNLABELLED Repeated bouts of eccentric exercise reduce the amount of exercise-induced muscle injury. PURPOSE This study sought to evaluate the importance of neural adaptations by comparing the repeated bout effect on muscle injury caused by voluntary and electrically stimulated eccentric exercise. METHODS Sixteen subjects (nine men, seven women) were(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of residence-based, resistance exercise training (RET) on affected skeletal muscle size and glucose tolerance after long-standing, complete spinal cord injury (SCI). DESIGN Before-after trial. SETTING University laboratory trial. PARTICIPANTS Five men with chronic, complete SCI (C5-T9). INTERVENTION Magnetic(More)
Four rabbits in which atherosclerotic disease was induced by diet and balloon angioplasty underwent conventional angiography and MR angiography (MRA) using a black blood pulse sequence before and 10 minutes after the i.v. injection of a macromolecular contrast agent, NC 100283 (1.0 mmol/kg), a dysprosium diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid(More)
AIMS Three experiments were conducted to determine the survival and transfer of Salmonella Typhimurium from wood, tile or carpet to bologna (sausage) and bread. METHODS AND RESULTS Experiment 1. After 28 days, 1.5 to 2.5 log(10) CFU cm(-2) remained on tile from and the more concentrated media facilitated the survival of S. Typhimurium compared with the(More)
Phytochrome A is the primary photoreceptor for mediating various far-red light-induced responses in higher plants. We recently showed that Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) FAR-RED ELONGATED HYPOCOTYL3 (FHY3) and FAR-RED-IMPAIRED RESPONSE1 (FAR1), a pair of homologous proteins sharing significant sequence homology to Mutator-like transposases, act as novel(More)
STUDY DESIGN Experimental laboratory study. OBJECTIVES The primary purpose was to investigate the independent effects of current amplitude, pulse duration, and current frequency on muscle fatigue during neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES). A second purpose was to determine if the ratio of the evoked torque to the activated area could explain(More)
UNLABELLED Caffeine improves endurance exercise performance, but its ergogenic mechanism(s) remain unclear. PURPOSE This investigation sought to examine the effects of caffeine on perceptual and physiological responses to endurance exercise. METHODS Two experiments were performed. In study A, 14 participants were tested. Maximal voluntary strength (MVC)(More)
