Hip strength in females with and without patellofemoral pain.
The results indicate that young women with patellofemoral pain are more likely to demonstrate weakness in hip abduction as well as external rotation than age-matched women who are not symptomatic. Expand
Core stability measures as risk factors for lower extremity injury in athletes.
Core stability has an important role in injury prevention and future study may reveal that differences in postural stability partially explain the gender bias among female athletes. Expand
Lower extremity mechanics of females with and without patellofemoral pain across activities with progressively greater task demands.
The results suggest that females with patellofemoral pain do not employ different mechanics as demand of the activity increases, and seem to demonstrate similar abnormal lower extremity mechanics across a variety of activities. Expand
Core strength and lower extremity alignment during single leg squats.
Using instruments suitable for a clinical setting, females were found to have greater FPPA and generally decreased trunk, hip, and knee isometric torque. Expand

The association between the FPPA and lower extremity kinematics that are associated with PFPS suggest that theFPPA during single-leg squats may be a useful clinical measure, however, these methods should not be used to quantify 3-D joint rotations. Expand
Core Stability and Its Relationship to Lower Extremity Function and Injury
Current evidence suggests that decreased core stability may predispose to injury and that appropriate training may reduce injury, and can be tested using isometric, isokinetic, and isoinertial methods. Expand
Isolation and characterization of the Schizosaccharomyces pombe rhp9 gene: a gene required for the DNA damage checkpoint but not the replication checkpoint.
Epistasis analysis with other S.pombe checkpoint mutants indicates that rhp 9 acts in a process involving the checkpoint rad genes and that the rhp9 mutant is phenotypically very similar to chk1. Expand
Patellofemoral pain: consensus statement from the 3rd International Patellofemoral Pain Research Retreat held in Vancouver, September 2013
The mission of the 3rd International Patellofemoral Research Retreat was to improve understanding concerning the factors that contribute to the development and consequently to the treatment of PFP. Expand
Effects of Habitat Disturbance on Stream Salamanders: Implications for Buffer Zones and Watershed Management
With human populations increasing worldwide, habitat destruction and degradation are among the greatest threats facing wildlife. To minimize the impacts of development on aquatic habitats, numerousExpand
Gluteal muscle activation during running in females with and without patellofemoral pain syndrome.
Neuromuscular control differences of the gluteal muscles appear to exist among females with patellofemoral pain during running, and interventions to facilitate earlier activation of these muscles may be warranted among females who demonstrate altered running kinematics. Expand
