26 Varner, Michael W.; Lyon, Joseph L.; Alder, Stephen C.; Ellis Simonsen, Sara M.Effect of grand multiparity on intrapartum and newborn complications in young women.OBJECTIVE: To examine the effect of high parity on complications in young women, aged 18-34 years. METHODS: Seven years of Utah birth certificate data were reviewed (1995-2001). Young nulliparas and primiparas were compared with young grand and great grand multi-paras by using logistic regression. Y...Infant, Newborn; Parity; Pregnancy; Risk Factors; Obstetric Labor Complications2005-09
27 Eisenman, Patricia A.; Symons, John David; White, Andrea T.Eccentric strain at long muscle length evokes the repeated bout effect.The repeated bout effect (RBE) is a phenomenon characterized by less delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and torque deficit after the second of 2 separate eccentric exercise bouts. Previous investigators have reported that shifting of optimum angle after an initial bout of eccentric exercise mediat...Delayed Onset; Muscle Soreness; Popped Sarcomere; Exercise; Optimum Angle2005-11-19
28 Symons, John David; Jalili, Thunder; Litwin, Sheldon E.Quercetin-supplemented diets lower blood pressure and attenuate cardiac hypertrophy in rats with aortic constrictionQuercetin (Q), a flavonoid found in berries and onions, can reduce blood pressure in hypertensive animals and inhibit signal transduction pathways in vitro that regulate cardiac hypertrophy. We hypothesized that quercetin could prevent cardiovascular complications in rats with abdominal aortic con...2006

30 Symons, John DavidInfluence of folate on arterial permeability and stiffness in the absence or presence of hyperhomocysteinemiaElevation of plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, but the underlying mechanisms are not well understood.1 Worldwide, the most common cause of mild hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) is deficiency of folate.2,3 Some4-8 but not all9,10 studies sugg...Cystathionine B-synthase; Carotid artery; Aorta; Cardiovascular risk factors; Folate; Hyperhomocysteinemia; Arterial permeability; Arterial stiffness2006
31 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
32 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
33 Martin, JimAerodynamic drag area of cyclists determined with field-based measuresAerodynamic drag is an important factor in the performance of competitive track and road cyclists. Recently we used wind-tunnel testing to validate a practical measure of aerodynamic drag derived from a field test. We present here instructions for performing the field test on a straight flat road or...2006-01-01

35 Newton, MariaInfluence of leader efficacy and emotional intelligence on personal caring in physical activityScholars in youth development, education, and sport are examining the formative contexts of classrooms, music halls, and playing fields to gain a better understanding of positive development in children. Of particular interest are the leaders in these contexts (e.g., teachers, conductors, and coach...Sport; Motivation; Pedagogy; Leader efficacy; Emotional intelligence2007
36 Martin, JimUnderstanding sprint-cycling performance: the integration of muscle power, resistance, and modelingSprint-cycling performance is paramount to competitive success in over half the world-championship and Olympic races in the sport of cycling. This review examines the current knowledge behind the interaction of propulsive and resistive forces that determine sprint performance. Because of recent inno...2007-01-01
37 Caserta, Michael; Lund, Dale A.Toward the development of an inventory of daily widowed life (IDWL): guided by the duel process model of coping with bereavementThe Dual Process Model of Coping with Bereavement (Stroebe & Schut, 1999) suggests that the most effective adaptation involves oscillaton between two coping processes: loss-orientation (LO) and restoration-orientation (RO). A 22-item Inventory of Daily Widowed Life (IDWL) was developed to measure t...Bereavement; Grief reaction; Widowhood; Psychological orientation; Adaptation, Psychological2007-07
38 Blomgren, MichaelStuttering treatment outcomes measurement: assessing above and below the surfaceMost researchers now acknowledge that stuttering is a multidimensional disorder (Smith & Kelly, 1997). Therefore, any assessment of stuttering treatment requires a multifaceted approach. A multifaceted approach typically includes assessing both surface elements as well as elements of stuttering that...2007-11-01

40 Jalili, ThunderMammalian target of rapamycin Is a critical regulator of cardiac hypertrophy in spontaneously hypertensive ratsEvidence exists that protein kinase C and the mammalian target of rapamycin are important regulators of cardiac hypertrophy. We examined the contribution of these signaling kinases to cardiac growth in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). Systolic blood pressure was increased (P<0.001) at 10 wee...2009
41 Newton, MariaYouth perceptions of a caring climate, emotional regulation and psychological well-beingThe purpose of this study was to examine the meditational effect of perceived affective self-regulatory efficacy on the relationship between youth sport participants? perceived caring climate and their mental well-being.
