OBJECTIVE The goal of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) on the Barthel Index (BI) scores in persons with stroke to assess dependency in survivers of stroke and to investigate the long-term effects of CIMT on dependency needs as measured by the BI, based on the hypothesis that CIMT as home-based(More)
Previous studies have confirmed that heat shock protein 90 overexpression can lead to dopaminergic neuronal death. This study was designed to further investigate what effects are produced by heat shock protein 90 after endurance exercise training. Immunohistochemistry results showed that exercise training significantly inhibited heat shock protein 90(More)
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Parkinson's disease (PD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases in elderly. Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), calcium-binding protein (S100B), and neuron-specific enolase (NSE) are brain damage markers. The main goal of this study is to investigate the expression of these markers in the striatum (ST) of(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare the effects of 10 weeks of resistance or treadmill exercises on glycemic indices levels prior to and immediately following exercise in adults with type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHOD Twenty inactive subjects (mean age 53.5 years) with type 2 diabetes enrolled in the study. Baseline HbA1c, blood(More)
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES The main goal of this study is to evaluate the effect of treadmill exercise on the angiogenesis markers in the striatum (ST) of chronic/progressive parkinsonian mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty 57BL/6 albino mice were randomly divided into four groups. Sedentary control (SC, n=10), exercise control (ExC, n=10), sedentary Parkinson's(More)
BACKGROUND Early markers of diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN) in an electrocardiogram (ECG) include elevated R wave amplitudes, widening of QTc intervals and decreased heart rate variability (HRV). The severity of DAN has a direct relationship with mortality risk. Aerobic exercise training is a common recommendation for the delay and possible reversal of(More)
An accumulating amount of evidence has linked humoral mediators of inflammation with sleep measures. Nevertheless, important details of this association, in particular the role of the complement components in the context of chronic sleep attributes, have remained largely uncharacterized. Fifty university students (age, 23.3 ± 3.8 years; BMI, 23.7 ± 2.9(More)
PURPOSE Mechanical efficiency can assess motor performance in individuals with physical disabilities. The purpose was to determine the utility of predicting it from heart rate (HR) during a self-paced stair-climbing test in adults with chronic hemiparesis after stroke and to determine the minimal detectable change of net mechanical efficiency (MEnet)(More)
Lumbar disc degeneration (LDD) is a widespread public health problem that may lead to disability and loss of productivity. Adiponectin is an adipokine secreted by adipose tissue and has been shown to be involved in cartilage homeostasis. In the present study, the association between the rs266729 (-11377C/G) and rs2241766 (45T/G) single nucleotide(More)
