  • Skeletal Muscle
  • Some kinds of muscular dystrophy affect the skeletal muscle membrane. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Objectives: the aim of this protocol is to identify biomarker and clinical correlates of changes in the barrier function of skeletal muscle membrane (i.e. cell membrane permeability) before and after routine motor function testing in patients with one of the Fragile Sarcolemmal Muscular Dystrophies (FSMD). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Outcome measures: increased change in baseline levels of proteins that are released into the blood from damaged skeletal muscle, such as creatine kinase (CK), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), troponins, and myoglobin in serum, changes in inflammation markers, circulating microRNAs and imaging studies to identify effective biomarkers for use in future clinical trials. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Dietary protein is essential for skeletal muscle function. (mdpi.com)
  • Resistance exercise appears to be the most beneficial form of physical activity for preserving skeletal muscle and a synergistic effect has been noted when this is combined with dietary protein. (mdpi.com)
  • Research also implies a role for the gut microbiome in skeletal muscle function. (mdpi.com)
  • We summarise the existing evidence for the role of the gut microbiota in anabolic resistance and skeletal muscle in aging people, and introduce the metabolome as a tool to probe this relationship in the future. (mdpi.com)
  • This is consistent with age-related changes to skeletal muscle. (researchgateway.ac.nz)
  • spasticity

(eurekalert.org)
  • Individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) demonstrate reduced limb blood flow and muscle spasticity. (utexas.edu)
  • PURPOSE: To determine the association between peripheral blood flow and muscle spasticity in persons with SCI. (utexas.edu)
  • Femoral artery blood flow, adjusted for limb lean mass, was significantly different (p=0.002) across the three leg spasticity groups (high 76.03±6.44, low 95.12±15.49, no 142.53±10.86 ml/min/kg).Total leg muscle spasticity scores were significantly and negatively correlated with femoral artery blood flow (r=-0.60, p=0.014). (utexas.edu)
  • These results suggest that a reduction in lower limb perfusion, among other factors, plays a significant role in the pathogenesis leading to muscle spasticity after SCI. (utexas.edu)
  • stimulate
  • In these people, it may be that using an electrical current to stimulate the thigh muscles will help to improve their condition. (cochrane.org)
  • However, older adults have shown evidence of anabolic resistance, where greater amounts of protein are required to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, and response is variable. (mdpi.com)
  • We thought, let's see what happens if we use aerobic exercise, one of the interventions that has been shown in the past to improve vasodilation, to find out whether we can get insu lin to stimulate muscle synthesis in older people," said UTMB professor Elena Volpi, senior author of a paper on the experiments appearing in the June issue of the journal Diabetes.

  • thigh
  • One way that exercise helps is by improving the condition (how well they work) of the thigh muscles. (cochrane.org)
  • However, for some people with COPD, exercising at a level that is high enough to improve the condition of the thigh muscles is difficult because they experience severe shortness of breath with exercise. (cochrane.org)
  • Most studies stimulated the thigh muscles once or twice a day for 30 to 60 minutes on four to seven days each week for four to eight weeks. (cochrane.org)
  • oxidative
  • With all the inconsistencies in ME/CFS research, it's rather reassuring that every study - whether done in the brain, muscles or blood - that's looked for oxidative stress in ME/CFS has found it elevated. (prohealth.com)
  • musculoskeletal
  • When a person attempts to move, nerve signals are sent from the brain to the muscles via motoneuron (sic), moving the musculoskeletal system as a consequence," Fox News quoted the English-language section of the Cyberdyne Web site as explaining. (medindia.net)
  • protein
  • People should eat foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and protein. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Thus, the recommended daily amount of protein is greater for older people. (mdpi.com)
  • Tracer techniques enabled the scientists to track amino acids (the building blocks of muscle proteins) and determine muscle-protein synthesis and breakdown rates from the blood and muscle samples, while measuring blood flow at the same time. (bio-medicine.org)
  • These revealed that the volunteers who exercised had both higher blood flow and net muscle protein growth. (bio-medicine.org)
  • This test also showed that exercise boosted insulin's role as a muscle protein growth factor. (bio-medicine.org)
  • elderly
  • The UB-developed bubble artificial muscles could be used in other wearable devices that assist the elderly, disabled persons, and recovering stroke victims in moving around their homes and outdoors. (newstarget.com)
  • Many times I've been overtaken on my short walks by quite elderly people walking by at what seemed to me to be a remarkably rapid click. (prohealth.com)
  • Aerobic Exercise Helps Maintain Muscle in Elderly: Research ( Why do older people tend to lose muscle. (bio-medicine.org)
  • One important factor identified by medical science is the reduced ability of the elderly to respond to the muscle-building stimulus of the hormone insulin. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Recent studies have shown, however, that insulin also provides crucial assistance in building muscle, and that its ability to do so drops off dramatically in the elderly. (bio-medicine.org)

  • one kilogram more muscle mass in each leg than older men. (medicalxpress.com)
  • Both groups lose muscle mass when immobilized for two weeks - young men lose 485 grams on average, while older men lose approx. (medicalxpress.com)
  • The more muscle mass you have, the more you'll lose. (medicalxpress.com)
  • Which means that if you're fit and become injured, you'll most likely lose more muscle mass than someone who is unfit, over the same period of time. (medicalxpress.com)
  • But even though older people lose less muscle mass and their level of fitness is reduced slightly less than in young people, the loss of muscle mass is presumably more critical for older people , because it is likely to have a greater impact on their general health and quality of life," says Martin Gram, researcher at the Center for Healthy Aging and the Department of Biomedical Sciences, explains. (medicalxpress.com)
  • Grip strength is specifically important because it can be used as a predictor of overall health and longevity, and might even be more effective for the task than other commonly-used measurements like muscle mass, according to Duchowny. (menshealth.com)
