The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of poor effort on neuropsychological test performance in military personnel following mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). Participants were 143 U.S. service members who sustained a TBI, divided into three groups based on injury severity and performance on the Word Memory Test and four embedded markers(More)
The purpose of this study is to examine the clinical utility of the Conners' Continuous Performance Test (CPT-II) as an embedded marker of poor effort in military personnel undergoing neuropsychological evaluations following traumatic brain injury. Participants were 158 U.S. military service members divided into 3 groups on the basis of brain injury(More)
This study compared the neuropsychological outcome in military personnel following mild-to-moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI). Participants were 83 service members divided into three injury severity groups: uncomplicated mild TBI (MTBI; n = 24), complicated MTBI (n = 17), and moderate TBI (n = 42). Participants were evaluated within 6 months following(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the neuropsychological outcome from blast-related versus non-blast related mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). Participants were 56 U.S. military service members who sustained an MTBI, divided into two groups based on mechanism of injury: (a) non-blast related (Non-blast; n = 21), and (b) blast plus secondary blunt(More)
The purpose of this study was to identify factors that are predictive of, or associated with, postconcussion symptom reporting after traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the U.S. military. Participants were 125 U.S. military service members (age: M=29.6 years, standard deviation [SD]=8.9, range=18-56 years) who sustained a TBI, divided into two groups based on(More)
Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) may be programmed by nutrient deprivation. We found that after 2 and 12 h exposure to 75% reduced amino acids, the release of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and transforming growth factor beta1 (TGF beta 1) from VSMC was significantly greater than that from cells maintained in control medium [2572.0 (546.3) vs(More)
Purpose: Tenascin is an extracellular matrix glycoprotein which is expressed transiently in wound healing in human skin and animal corneas. In virro and ednbryological studies suggest that tenascin mediates cell adhesion/anti-adhesion, enhancunen~mlubltion of cell proliiation, and promotion of cell migration. At present there are no published data regarding(More)
The role of nutrient supply in the replicative capacity and secretory phenotype of cultured human diploid cells is unclear. We examined the relationship between amino acid privation, the secretion of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and growth phenotype of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC), and endothelial cells. Cultures of VSMCs, but not(More)
