Recently, several cases of mild traumatic brain injury to American professional football players have been reconstructed using instrumented Hybrid III anthropomorphic test dummies ATDs. The translational and rotational acceleration responses of injured and uninjured players' heads have been documented. The acceleration data have been processed according to(More)
Concussion, or mild traumatic brain injury, occurs in many activities, mostly as a result of the head being accelerated. A comprehensive study has been conducted to understand better the mechanics of the impacts associated with concussion in American football. This study involves a sequence of techniques to analyse and reconstruct many different head impact(More)
Gentamicin nephrotoxicity increases renal cortex calcium and sodium and decreases renal cortex Na-K-ATPase activity. Human acute renal failure is accompanied by an increase in parathyroid hormone (PTH), a hormone that stimulates calcium uptake by tissues, and by a decrease in thyroid hormone, a hormone that increases renal cortex Na-K-ATPase activity. This(More)
The proposed biomechanical injury cost model utilizes surrogate-based injury assessment functions to predict the probability of occurrence and the probable cost of specific injuries to the head, thorax, abdomen, and lower extremities. The resulting probability cost is a function of the number, location, and severity of injuries. As more precise injury(More)

To investigate certain physiological aspects of the mode of action of zeranol or Ralgro on growth, behavior and carcass quality of young bulls, concentrations of 19 blood components and weights of eight organs were determined. Experimental animals consisted of 36 untreated steers, 36 untreated bulls, 36 bulls implanted with zeranol at 3 mo of age and(More)
A total of 144 male crossbred calves were allocated to four castration or implant treatments (unimplanted bulls; unimplanted steers; bulls implanted with zeranol at 100 days of age and reimplanted at intervals of 69, 93, and 56 days thereafter; bulls implanted with zeranol at 168 days of age and reimplanted at intervals of 93 and 56 days thereafter) and two(More)
