APS August/September journal hot picks

Highlights from peer-reviewed journals announced

Children with burn injuries and exercise, cloning a 200-million year old vertebrate for research on newborn liver disease, asthma and allergy sufferers and their bronchial responses, exercise studies on elite athletes, differences among black and white females exercisers, and effective techniques for teaching science are among the current research highlights published by the American Physiological Society (APS)

September 10, 2001 - Bethesda, MD-The American Physiological Society (APS) spotlights recent research findings designed to improve human well being and understanding of human health. The highlights have been selected from three of the l4 peer-reviewed journals the Society publishes each month. On an annual basis, APS publishes more than 3,800 articles. Highlights have been selected from the current editions of the Journal of Applied Physiology, American Journal of Physiology: Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology, and Advances in Physiological Education, and are listed below.

Effects of a 12-Week Resistance Exercise Program on Skeletal Muscle Strength in Children with Burn Injuries

Summary: Post-traumatic response to burn injury leads to significant and prolonged skeletal muscle loss and weakness. Conventional rehabilitation programs do not provide the same benefits as resistance exercise programs.

Methodology: Post-traumatic response to burn injury leads to significant and prolonged skeletal muscle loss and weakness, which persist despite standard rehabilitation programs of occupational and physical therapy. In a study led by Oscar E. Suman, and jointly sponsored by the Shriners Hospitals for Children and The University of Texas Medical Branch, researchers investigated whether a resistance exercise program would attenuate muscle loss and weakness that is typically found in children with thermal
