3 Marcus, RobinAn eccentrically biased rehabilitation program early after TKA surgeryRehabilitation services are less-studied aspects of the management following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) despite long-term suboptimal physical functioning and chronic deficits in muscle function. This paper describes the preliminary findings of a six-week (12 session) eccentrically-biased rehabili...2011
4 Painter, Patricia LynnAssociations of self-reported physical activity types and levels with quality of life, depression symptoms, and mortality in hemodialysis patients: The DOPPSBackground and objectives Physical activity has been associated with better health status in diverse populations, but the association in patients on maintenance hemodialysis is less established. Patient-reported physical activities and associations with mortality, health-related quality of life, and...2014-01-01
5 Hunt, Steven C.; Adams, Ted; Hopkins, Paul N.; Hunt, Steven C.ATGL gene is associated with free fatty acids, triglycerides, and type 2 diabetesAdipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL) was recently described to predominantly perform the initial step in triglyceride hydrolysis and therefore seems to play a pivotal role in the lipolytic catabolism of stored fat in adipose tissue. In the first study investigating genetic variations within the ATGL g...Diabete, Type 2; ATGL; Fat; Triglycerides2006
6 Dibble, Leland E.Charting the progression of disability in parkinson disease: study protocol for a prospective longitudinal cohort studyBackground: People with Parkinson disease (PD), even in the presence of symptomatic relief from medical, surgical, and rehabilitative interventions, face a persistent worsening of disability. This disability is characterized by diminished quality of life, reduced functional mobility, declining perf...2010

8 Cannon, Grant W.Clinical and laboratory outcomes during the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis with methotrexate.Ten clinical and three laboratory outcomes were evaluated in 86 patients completing a double-blind placebo-controlled trial of methotrexate in rheumatoid arthritis. The improvement in all measured outcomes was statistically significantly better in patients receiving methotrexate than in patients rec...C-Reactive Protein; Fluorescent Antibody Technique; Latex Fixation Tests; Randomized Controlled Trials1990-02-01
9 Dibble, Leland E.Development of a scale to assess avoidance behavior due to a fear of falling: the fear of falling avoidance behavior questionnaireBackground. A history of falls or imbalance may lead to a fear of falling, which may lead to self-imposed avoidance of activity; this avoidance may stimulate a vicious cycle of deconditioning and subsequent falls. Objective. The purpose of this study was to develop a questionnaire that would quanti...2011
10 Dibble, Leland E.Eccentric exercise versus usual-care with older cancer survivors: the impact on muscle and mobility- an exploratory pilot studyBackground: Resistance exercise programs with high compliance are needed to counter impaired muscle and mobility in older cancer survivors. To date outcomes have focused on older prostate cancer survivors, though more heterogeneous groups of older survivors are in-need. The purpose of this explorat...2011
11 Griffiths, Marie M.; Sawitzke, Allen D.; Cannon, Grant W.Exacerbation of collagen-induced arthritis in rats by rat cytomegalovirus is antigen-specific.Collagen-Induced Arthritis (CIA) is an experimentally induced and genetically controlled animal model of chronic joint inflammation. In rats, there are informative strain differences in susceptibility to CIA. DA rats (RT1avl) develop severe CIA after immunization with bovine (BII), chick (CII), or h...Autoimmunity; Flow Cytometry; Rats, Inbred Strains; Sex Factors1994
12 Cannon, Grant W.; Clegg, Daniel O.; Moncur, Carolee; Willardson, DebraInter-observer reliability of the Spondylitis Functional Index Instrument for assessing spondylarthropathies.OBJECTIVE: To study the Spondylitis Functional Index (SFI) by having two physical therapists observe patients with spondylitis perform various tasks listed on the instrument. The physical therapists' observations were compared with each other and with the self-reported abilities of the patients. ...Spondylitis Functional Index (SFI); physical therapists; sulfasalazine1996-06
13 LaStayo, Paul C.Intermuscular fat: a review of the consequences and causesMuscle's structural composition is an important factor underlying muscle strength and physical function in older adults. There is an increasing amount of research to support the clear disassociation between the loss of muscle lean tissue mass and strength with aging. This disassociation implies that...2014-01-01
14 LaStayo, Paul C.Muscle force and movement variability before and after total knee arthroplasty: a reviewVariability in muscle force output and movement variability are important aspects of identifying individuals with mobility deficits, central nervous system impairments, and future risk of falling. This has been investigated in elderly healthy and impaired adults, as well as in adults with osteoarthr...2014-01-01
15 Cannon, Grant W.; Clayton, Frederic; Griffiths, Marie M.Passive transfer of adjuvant-induced arthritis into irradiated DA recipient rats.Adjuvant-induced arthritis (AIA) can be passively transferred in Dark Agouti (DA) rats by spleen and lymph node cells after culture with Concanavalin A (Con A). A model not requiring in vitro Con A expansion and activation would be important in investigations of anti-rheumatic drugs in AIA. A new mo...Cell Transplantation; Rats, Inbred Strains1993
16 Ward, Robert ScottThe physical therapy and society summit (PASS) meeting: observations and opportunitiesThe construct of delivering high-quality and cost-effective health care is in flux, and the profession must strategically plan how to meet the needs of society. In 2006, the House of Delegates of the American Physical Therapy Association passed a motion to convene a summit on ?how physical therapist...2010

18 LaStayo, Paul C.Resistance exercise with older fallers: Its impact on intermuscular adipose tissueObjective. Greater skeletal muscle fat infiltration occurs with age and contributes to numerous negative health outcomes. The primary purpose was to determine whether intermuscular adipose tissue (IMAT) can be influenced by an exercise intervention and if a greater reduction in IMAT occurs with ecce...2014-01-01

20 Griffiths, Marie M.; Cole Barry C.; Cannon, Grant W.T-cell receptors and collagen induced arthritis in H-2r mice.Mouse strains B10, B10.RIII, RIIIS/J and the F1 and backcross progeny arising from them were tested for susceptibility to porcine type II collagen-induced arthritis (PII-CIA). The clinically severe arthritis of rapid onset that is characteristic of PII-immunized B10.RIII mice developed predominantly...Genotype; Mice, Inbred C57BL; Sex Characteristics; T-Lymphocytes1993
21 Marcus, RobinTargeting anabolic impairment in response to resistance exercise in older adults with mobility impairments: potential mechanisms and rehabilitation approachesMuscle atrophy is associated with healthy aging (i.e., sarcopenia) and may be compounded by comorbidities, injury, surgery, illness, and physical inactivity. While a bout of resistance exercise increases protein synthesis rates in healthy young skeletal muscle, the effectiveness of resistance exerci...2012-01-01
