Hospitalisation is associated with adverse health outcomes including loss of muscle strength, muscle mass and functional decline, which might be further aggravated by acute inflammation. This study aimed to determine whether acute inflammation, as denoted by C-reactive protein (CRP), is associated with muscle strength, muscle mass and functional dependency in hospitalised older patients.

There are still conflicting results regarding the association between grip and global muscle strength in older people. Therefore, the objective of the present study was to determine the association be...
Skeletal muscle inflammation is strongly associated with pain and may impair regeneration and functional recovery after injury. Since anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive effects have been described ...
Associations between masseter muscle thickness(MMT) and limb muscle thickness, and between grip strength and MMT, as well as tooth-loss, have been reported previously. The previous study also showed t...
Bioelectrical impedance spectroscopy (BIS) can assess intracellular water (ICW) and total water (TW) in limbs. This study aimed to examine whether BIS can explain a part of the inter-individual variat...
Muscle strength - the maximal force generating capacity of a muscle or group of muscles - is regularly assessed in physiological experiments and clinical trials. An understanding of the expected varia...
The research questions are if persons with low back pain (LBP) have lower trunk muscle strength, lower trunk muscle strength endurance and lower trunk muscle activity than healthy controls...
Aim of this study is to determine in chronic kidney disease patients: - the involvement of malnutrition inflammation and atherogenesis syndrome (increase in C reactive protein and...
The proposed study will test efficacy of HMB in free acid gel to decrease muscle damage, improve muscle strength, and diminish the inflammatory response following an acute exercise stress....
Aim of this study is to compare the association of muscle mass and functionality with mortality among chronic haemodialysis - the involvement of malnutrition inflammation and atherogen...
This study will determine the effects of supplementing beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) on body composition and strength changes during weight loss. When overweight and obese persons...
The amount of force generated by MUSCLE CONTRACTION. Muscle strength can be measured during isometric, isotonic, or isokinetic contraction, either manually or using a device such as a MUSCLE STRENGTH DYNAMOMETER.
A device that measures MUSCLE STRENGTH during muscle contraction, such as gripping, pushing, and pulling. It is used to evaluate the health status of muscle in sports medicine or physical therapy.
A general term encompassing lower MOTOR NEURON DISEASE; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; and certain MUSCULAR DISEASES. Manifestations include MUSCLE WEAKNESS; FASCICULATION; muscle ATROPHY; SPASM; MYOKYMIA; MUSCLE HYPERTONIA, myalgias, and MUSCLE HYPOTONIA.
Inflammation of a muscle or muscle tissue.
A state arrived at through prolonged and strong contraction of a muscle. Studies in athletes during prolonged submaximal exercise have shown that muscle fatigue increases in almost direct proportion to the rate of muscle glycogen depletion. Muscle fatigue in short-term maximal exercise is associated with oxygen lack and an increased level of blood and muscle lactic acid, and an accompanying increase in hydrogen-ion concentration in the exercised muscle.
Arthritis Fibromyalgia Gout Lupus Rheumatic Rheumatology is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and management of disease involving joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments and associated structures (Oxford Medical Diction...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
