Zacca, R, Azevedo, R, Peterson Silveira, R, Vilas-Boas, JP, Pyne, DB, Castro, FAdS, and Fernandes, RJ. Comparison of incremental intermittent and time trial testing in age-group swimmers. J Strength Cond Res 33(3): 801–810, 2019—The aim of this study was to compare physiological and biomechanical characteristics between an incremental intermittent test and a time trial protocol in age-group swimmers. Eleven national level age-group swimmers (6 men and 5 women) performed a 7 × 200-m incremental intermittent protocol (until exhaustion; 30-second rest) and a 400-m test (T400) in front crawl on separate days....

AbstractHemiplegic individuals often exhibit gait impairments. Current technologies allow for simple and fast acquisition of spatiotemporal gait parameters and gait Symmetry Indices (SI). Gait SI have been associated with instability and fall risk. These data may therefore prove an important addition to the already common conventional clinical measures, e.g. the 10 Meter Walk Test (10MWT), Berg Balance Scale (BBS), Timed Up and Go Test (TUG), Six Minute Walk Test (6MWT) and the Motor Functional Independence Measure (MFIM). However, the prediction of these conventional clinical measures using spatiotemporal gait parameters ...
AbstractWarfarin is dependent on multiple hepatic enzymes for metabolism while apixaban is a substrate for P-glycoprotein (P-gp) transport and hepatic CYP3A4 metabolism. The aim of this analysis was to assess the impact of interacting medication use on the treatment effects of apixaban versus warfarin. Outcomes were compared between apixaban and warfarin using Cox proportional hazards modeling according to the use of interacting medications at randomization in ARISTOTLE (n = 18,201). Interacting medications for apixaban were identified as combined P-gp and 3A4 inhibitors or inducers while interacting medicat...

February 20, 2019—(BRONX, N.Y.)—A study led byAlbert Einstein College of Medicine researchers found a link between daily consumption of multiple diet drinks and higher stroke risk among post-menopausal women. The association was stronger in obese women and African-American women. The study was published February 14 inStroke, a journal of the American Heart Association.

It is unclear whether and why Propagermanium (PG, a CCR2 inhibitor) is able to protect against ischemic injury. Middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) and reperfusion injury in C57BL/6 J male mice were performed in vivo to mimic ischemic stroke. Cultured BV2 microglia e...
