Our purpose was to examine the effects of sprint interval training on muscle glycolytic and oxidative enzyme activity and exercise performance. Twelve healthy men (22 +/- 2 yr of age) underwent intense interval training on a cycle ergometer for 7 wk. Training consisted of 30-s maximum sprint efforts (Wingate protocol) interspersed by 2-4 min of recovery,(More)
Possible changes in muscle size and function due to resistance training were examined in prepubertal boys. Thirteen boys (9-11 yr) volunteered for each of the training and control groups. Progressive resistance training was performed three times weekly for 20 wk. Measurements consisted of the following: 1 repetition maximum (RM) bench press and leg press;(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the magnitude and time course for changes in muscle protein synthesis (MPS) after a single bout of resistance exercise. Two groups of six male subjects performed heavy resistance exercise with the elbow flexors of one arm while the opposite arm served as a control. MPS from exercised (ex) and control (con) biceps(More)
The vitamin D-3 receptor (VDR) is a nuclear receptor that modulates gene expression when complexed with its ligand 1-alpha,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol [1,25(OH)(2)-D(3)], which is the biologically active form of vitamin D-3. The cellular effects of VDR signaling include growth arrest, differentiation and/or induction of apoptosis, which indicate that the(More)
Gastrointestinal (GI) discomfort is a common complaint among patients infected with HIV. GI symptoms can be caused by a myriad of factors including but not limited to coinfections, antiretroviral therapy, medications for opportunistic infections, and nutritional status. Some researchers have hypothesized that Helicobacter pylori infection may be more common(More)
Several members of the Ly-49 receptor family inhibit NK cell-mediated lysis of targets expressing appropriate MHC class I molecules. Ly-49D and Ly-49H, two Ly-49 molecules that lack immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs (ITIM) in their cytoplasmic domains, associate with mouse DAP12, a molecule that possesses an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based(More)

OBJECTIVE To describe gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB), flunitrazepam, and ketamine and their purported uses to facilitate acquaintance rape. Patient presentation characteristics, treatment regimens, processes to detect the presence of the medications by toxicology screening, and methods to avoid exposure are discussed. DATA SOURCES MEDLINE search from 1985 to(More)
PURPOSE Medication and nutrient administration considerations after bariatric surgery are discussed. SUMMARY Bariatric surgery is categorized by surgical technique (i.e., restrictive procedure or a combination of restrictive and malabsorptive procedures). Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is the most frequently performed bariatric surgery in the United States.(More)
BACKGROUND Large numbers of patients who stand to benefit from the exercise training component of cardiac rehabilitation are not being served due to access issues. Home-based exercise training may be a potentially useful alternative to training in institutional environments. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to examine the benefit of 6 months of(More)
OBJECTIVE To present and describe interprofessional education (IPE) in 6 US colleges of pharmacy including benefits, barriers, and strategies for implementation. METHODS A focus group with campus faculty IPE leaders and administrators was conducted at each of the 6 colleges. External facilitators used a structured script with open-ended questions to guide(More)
