PURPOSE Integrin alpha(v)beta(3) and vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (Flk-1) have been shown to be involved in tumor-induced angiogenesis. Selective targeting of upregulated alpha(v)beta(3) and Flk-1 on the neovasculature of tumors is a novel antiangiogenesis strategy for treating a wide variety of solid tumors. In the studies described here,(More)
BACKGROUND The Intrepid Dynamic Exoskeletal Orthosis (IDEO) is an ankle-foot orthosis developed to address the high rates of delayed amputation in the military. Its use has enabled many wounded Service Members to run again. During running, stiffness is thought to influence an orthosis' energy storage and return mechanical properties. This study examined the(More)
The metabolic demand of walking generally increases following lower extremity amputation. This study used real-time visual feedback to modify biomechanical factors linked to an elevated metabolic demand of walking in individuals with transtibial amputation. Eight persons with unilateral, traumatic transtibial amputation and 8 uninjured controls(More)
