Body mass index and waist circumference independently contribute to the prediction of nonabdominal, abdominal subcutaneous, and visceral fat.
BACKGROUND It is unknown whether the ability of waist circumference (WC) to predict health risk beyond that predicted by body mass index (BMI) alone is explained in part by the ability of WC toExpand

Comparisons of waist circumferences measured at 4 sites.
BACKGROUND Waist circumference (WC) is now accepted as a practical measure of adipose tissue distribution. Four body sites for WC measurements are commonly used, as follows: immediately below theExpand

Body-size dependence of resting energy expenditure can be attributed to nonenergetic homogeneity of fat-free mass.
An enduring enigma is why the ratio of resting energy expenditure (REE) to metabolically active tissue mass, expressed as the REE/fat-free mass (FFM) ratio, is greater in magnitude in subjects with aExpand

Relative resistance to HIV–1 infection of CD4 lymphocytes from persons who remain uninfected despite multiple high–risk sexual exposures
Some individuals remain uninfected with human immunodeficiency virus type–1 (HIV–1) despite multiple high–risk sexual exposures. We studied a cohort of 25 subjects with histories of multipleExpand

Hypertriglyceridemia in the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
PURPOSE A relationship between the induction of hypertriglyceridemia by cytokines and the cachexia seen in chronic infection has been proposed by other investigators. Since patients with the acquiredExpand

Prediction of body cell mass, fat-free mass, and total body water with bioelectrical impedance analysis: effects of race, sex, and disease.
The inability to precisely estimate body composition with simple, inexpensive, and easily applied techniques is an impediment to clinical investigations in nutrition. In this study, predictiveExpand

Clinical syndromes associated with microsporidiosis.
Microsporidia are ubiquitous in nature. Several clinical syndromes have been associated with microsporidiosis, especially in HIV-infected individuals, and include enteropathy, keratoconjunctivitis,Expand

Intermuscular adipose tissue-free skeletal muscle mass: estimation by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry in adults.
Skeletal muscle (SM) is a large and physiologically important compartment. Adipose tissue is found interspersed between and within SM groups and is referred to as intermuscular adipose tissue (IMAT).Expand
