BACKGROUND Spinal cord injury (SCI) significantly impacts an individual's quality of life (QOL). A brief and subjective measure of QOL is necessary to monitor the progress and outcomes of SCI rehabilitation. OBJECTIVE To determine whether this measure of QOL was associated with clinically important physical and psychosocial outcomes in a sample of people(More)
OBJECTIVE Practical quality-of-life (QOL) screening methods are needed to help focus clinical decision-making on what matters to individuals with disabilities. DESIGN A secondary analysis of a database from a large study of adults aging with impairments focused on four diagnostic groups: cerebral palsy (n = 134), polio (n = 321), rheumatoid arthritis (n =(More)
Oxidative deamination of tyramine, serotonin and benzyl amine in bovine kidney mitochondria was inhibited by low concentrations of deprenil (but not clorgylline). These data and the patterns of the plots of residual enzymatic activity against concentration of the inhibitors as well as the "mixed substrates" experiments suggest occurrence in bovine kidney(More)
The effect of PAF in aggregation of platelets induced by endotoxin was studied in experiments in vitro. It is indicated that in high concentration (1.10(-7)-1.10(-6) M) PAF did not affect the degree of aggregation of platelets induced by lipopolysaccharides (LPS) S. typhimurium and N. meningitidis. Successive addition to PRP LPS and PAF or joint addition of(More)
Acid alpha-glucosidase from human liver was 720-fold purified by means of a specific sorption on Sephadex G-150 and a specific desorption from Sephadex by the competitive inhibitor, methyl-alpha-D-glucopyranoside. The preparation obtained was homogenous in ultracentrifuge and polyacrilamide gel electrophoresis. The enzyme possessed both maltase and(More)
As the population ages and chronic diseases abound, overburdened healthcare systems will increasingly require individuals to manage their own health. Online health management tools, quickly increasing in popularity, have the potential to diminish or even replace in-person contact with health professionals, but overall efficacy and usage trends are unknown.(More)
After 10 minutes of endotoxin Salmonella typhimurium (1 mg/kg) injection into rabbits thrombocytopenia appeared, the aggregation and secretory function of circulating platelets reduced, the transformation of platelet forms from disk-shaped into spheroidal took place. On the surface of plasmatic membranes the pseudopodies and aggregates examining samples of(More)
