To gather data on the impact of type 2 diabetes on muscle mass atrophy during a period of bed rest and recovery of muscle mass, strength, and physical function following bed rest.
A double-blind, randomized investigator-initiated study to determine the safety and the effect of Diamyd® on the progression to type 1 diabetes in children with multiple islet cell autoan...
The aim is to describe the association of glucose tolerance measured with three different tools (continuous glucose measurement system - CGMS, oral glucose tolerance testing - OGTT and opt...
Population: 16 children with cerebral palsy, GMFCS 1-3.16 children typically developed, matched for age. All children aged 6-12 yrs who understand simple commands. Tools: ...
This research aims to develop an intervention that combines mTBI-specific motor and cognitive challenges into a progressive and challenging rehabilitation program. We plan to develop and r...
Physical inactivity alters glucose homeostasis in skeletal muscle, potentially developing into overt metabolic disease. The present study sought to investigate the role of skeletal muscle capillarizat...
Background Statins are widely used to lower cholesterol concentrations in both primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. The treatment increases the risk of muscle pain (myalgia) and...
Short-term muscle disuse induces significant muscle loss in older adults and in some reports may be more accelerated with aging. Identifying muscle transcriptional events in response to bed rest may h...
Simvastatin is a cholesterol-lowering drug that is prescribed to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease following high levels of blood cholesterol. There is a possible risk of new onset diabetes mel...
The aim of this study was to investigate the acute effect of hydration status on glycemic regulation in healthy adults and explore underlying mechanisms. In this randomized crossover trial, 16 healthy...
A symptom complex characterized by pain and weakness in SKELETAL MUSCLE group associated with exercise, such as leg pain and weakness brought on by walking. Such muscle limpness disappears after a brief rest and is often relates to arterial STENOSIS; muscle ISCHEMIA; and accumulation of LACTATE.
Neoplasm derived from displaced cells (rest cells) of the primordial ADRENAL GLANDS, generally in patients with CONGENITAL ADRENAL HYPERPLASIA. Adrenal rest tumors have been identified in TESTES; LIVER; and other tissues. They are dependent on ADRENOCORTICOTROPIN for growth and adrenal steroid secretion.
Detection of or testing for certain ALLELES, mutations, genotypes, or karyotypes that are associated with genetic traits, heritable diseases, or with a predisposition to a disease, or that may lead to the disease in descendants. It includes prenatal genetic testing.
A mitochondrial encephalomyopathy characterized clinically by a mixed seizure disorder, myoclonus, progressive ataxia, spasticity, and a mild myopathy. Dysarthria, optic atrophy, growth retardation, deafness, and dementia may also occur. This condition tends to present in childhood and to be transmitted via maternal lineage. Muscle biopsies reveal ragged-red fibers and respiratory chain enzymatic defects. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p986)
A neuropsychological test designed to assess different memory functions. It may incorporate an optional cognitive exam (Brief Cognitive Status Exam) that helps to assess memory related cognitive function.
