5 Shultz, Barry B.Lumbar segmental mobility disorders: comparison of two methods of defining abnormal displacement kinematics in a cohort of patients with non-specific mechanical low back painBackground: Lumbar segmental rigidity (LSR) and lumbar segmental instability (LSI) are believed to be associated with low back pain (LBP), and identification of these disorders is believed to be useful for directing intervention choices. Previous studies have focussed on lumbar segmental rotation an...2006
6 Newton, MariaEffects of a classroom-based physical activity program on childrens physical activity levelsHigh levels of physical inactivity are evident among many American children. To address this problem, providing physical activity (PA) during the school day within the CSPAP framework, is one strategy to increase children's PA. Thus, the purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a classroo...2014-01-01

12 Shaw, Janet M.; Moyer-Mileur, Laurie L.The new glucose revolution: is the authoritative guide to the glycemic index the right dietary solution for lifelong health?The persistence of an epidemic of obesity, coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes suggests that new nutritional strategies are needed if the epidemic is to be overcome. A promising nutritional approach suggested by this thematic review is carbohydrate restriction. Under conditions of carbohydra...2010
13 Askew, Eldon W.; Bernstein, Paul S.Serum and macular responses to antioxidant supplementation verus a carotenoid-rich dietary intervention in the elderly.The aim of this study was to observe responses of serum antioxidants, oxidative stress biomarkers, and macular carotenoid pigments to antioxidant supplements or dietary intervention in a single-masked, randomized, pilot clinical study of elderly subjects receiving antioxidant supplements or a dietar...Macula; Serum Carotenoids; Zeaxanthin2006-02-01
14 Symons, John DavidNa-H exchange inhibition with Cariporide limits functional impairment caused by repetitive ischemiaIntracellular calcium ([Ca]i) overload on reperfusion may be one of the mechanisms responsible for ischemia-induced regional myocardial dysfunction. Because inhibiting the Na-H exchanger (NHE) limits intracellular sodium ([Na]i) and subsequent [Ca]i accumulation, we hypothesized that NHE inhibition ...Reperfusion; intracellular calcium; conscious pigs1998
15 Jalili, ThunderQuercetin: a treatment for hypertension? - a review of efficacy and mechanismsQuercetin is a polyphenolic flavonoid. Common sources in the diet are apples, onions, berries, and red wine. Epidemiological studies have found an inverse relationship between dietary quercetin intake and cardiovascular disease. This has led to in vitro, in vivo, and clinical research to determine ...2010
16 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

18 Martin, JimNo differences in cycling efficiency between world-class and recreational cyclistsThe aim of this experiment was to compare the efficiency of elite cyclists with that of trained and recreational cyclists. Male subjects (N =69)performed an incremental exercise test to exhaustion on an electrically braked cycle ergometer. Cadence was maintained between 80-90rpm.Gross efficiency; Delta efficiency; Cycling efficiency; Economy; VO2peak2004
19 Blomgren, MichaelStuttering treatment outcomes measurement: assessing above and below the surfaceMost researchers now acknowledge that stuttering is a multidimensional disorder (Smith & Kelly, 1997).
