Hyperlipidemia is a known risk factor for fatty infiltration of the liver, a condition that can progress to cirrhosis and liver failure. The objectives of this study were to document the prevalence of fatty infiltration in the livers of hyperlipidemic patients and to identify the predictor variables associated with this condition. Over an 18-month(More)
Mice were used as a model system to correlate loading, changes in cortical and trabecular bone growth and remodeling, and differences in breaking strength of the whole femur. BALB/c mice were raised for 30 days, starting at day 14, under three conditions of loading or exercise: (a) normal exercise control (NE), (b) 4 x normal gravity for a total of one(More)
BALB/c mice were raised for 30 days under nine treatment regimens to determine their effects on sexual dimorphism for size of the femur and of the body. Treatment groups were divided into three experiments: 1) burrowing in a high litter cage; eight times normal gravity for a total of one hour per day; a voluntary exercise control. 2) Unilateral femoral and(More)
OBJECTIVE Existing respiratory rate (RR) monitors suffer from inaccuracy. The study assesses the accuracy of a novel modality that monitors lung ventilation with miniature motion sensors. STUDY DESIGN RR was measured by three methods: impedance technology, motion sensors and visual count, in babies (n=9) that breathed spontaneously or with respiratory(More)
Juvenile BALB/c mice were used as a model system to test the effects of various loading and exercise regimens on the growth and development of femora. Six treatments and three controls were used to document changes in geometric, mechanical, and material properties of the femora associated with strength. In each age-matched experiment, body weight and the(More)
