OBJECTIVES To examine racial/ethnic disparity in and predictors of leisure-time physical activity (LTPA) among men. METHODS We used the National Health Interview Surveys (NHIS) 1999-2000 data, a multistage probability sampling design producing a U.S. representative sample of 23,459 adult males. Data were analyzed using multinomial logistic regression. (More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the relation of hemostatic markers to cardiovascular fitness and adiposity and the effect of physical training (PT) on these markers. STUDY DESIGN Seventy-four obese teenagers were randomly assigned to 8 months of lifestyle education (LSE), LSE plus moderate-intensity PT, or LSE plus high-intensity PT. Measures included fibrinogen,(More)
Multiple factors contribute to exercise intolerance in patients with sickle cell anemia, but little information exists regarding the safety of maximal cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) or the mechanisms of exercise limitation in these patients. The purpose of the present study was to examine these issues. Seventeen adult women with sickle cell anemia(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine patient satisfaction with telemedicine encounters among adults with sickle cell disease and compare their scores with SCD patients who have standard medical encounters (as controls). METHODS Adults patients were recruited from a list of participants in sickle cell telemedicine clinics and prospectively at the time of clinic(More)
The Medical College of Georgia (MCG) Sickle Cell Center in Augusta, Georgia, USA, provides consultation and (in some cases) primary-care services to more than 1000 patients with sickle cell disease (SCD).

We analyzed the effect of HU on the values of 23 parameters of 83 patients. A Student's t-test was used to confirm (Rodgers GP, Dover GJ, Noguchi CT, Schechter AN, Nienhuis AW. Hematologic responses of patients(More)
