Increased Infiltration of Macrophages in Omental Adipose Tissue Is Associated With Marked Hepatic Lesions in Morbid Human Obesity
In human obesity, white adipose tissue (WAT) is enriched in macrophages. How macrophage infiltration in WAT contributes to the complications of obesity is unknown. This study tested the hypothesisExpand

Time‐course effect of exercise‐induced muscle damage on localized muscle mechanical properties assessed using elastography
Changes in muscle stiffness after exercise‐induced muscle damage have been classically inferred from passive torque–angle curves. Elastographic techniques can be used to estimate the shear modulus ofExpand

Muscle force loss and soreness subsequent to maximal eccentric contractions depend on the amount of fascicle strain in vivo
Defining the origins of muscle injury has important rehabilitation and exercise applications. However, current knowledge of muscle damage mechanics in human remains unclear in vivo. This study aimedExpand

Early detection of exercise-induced muscle damage using elastography
PurposeThis study aimed to determine whether an increase in muscle shear modulus measured 30 min after eccentric exercise (30 min) reflects the magnitude of force deficit measured 48-h post-exerciseExpand
