A randomized, controlled, parallel-group clinical trial was carried out in general practice to assess the clinical efficacy of a new back support ('Lumbotrain') compared with 'standard therapy' of advice on rest and lifestyle in the treatment of patients with non-specific low back pain. A total of 216 patients entered this study (111 'Lumbotrain' group, 105(More)
A randomized, controlled parallel-group trial has assessed 14 days' use of a new ankle support (Malleotrain, Bauerfeind, Aldershot, UK) in 220 patients (118 Malleotrain, 102 control group) with acute ankle injuries. Self-assessed pain levels were significantly lower in the group using Malleotrain at the end of the trial (P less than 0.05), as were median(More)
This study evaluated the efficacy of injection with enhancement solutions containing sodium lactate (NaLac), potassium lactate (KLac), carrageenan, whey protein concentrate (WPC), yeast extract or fungal proteinases alone or in combination with NaCl at increasing the tenderness and cook yield of bovine M.supraspinatus and M. tricepsbrachii caput longum.(More)
Consumption of a food product containing prebiotics and probiotics has been recognized as an important factor in lowering risk of intestinal cancer and gastrointestinal diseases and risks associated with high cholesterol. An oats-based symbiotic yogurt-like food (Oagurt) was developed using oats and probiotics (Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus(More)
The aim was to investigate the effect of different cooking regimes on the cook yield and tenderness of non-injected and brine injected (0.5% residual NaCl) bovine M. triceps brachii caput longum (TB), M. supraspinatus (SP) and M. pectoralis profundus (PP). Injected and non-injected TB, SP and PP muscle sections (400 g) were (a) conventionally oven cooked to(More)
