OBJECTIVE. Having access to high-quality, rigorously developed, valid visual-motor integration assessment tools is the first step in the process of providing effective clinical services to children presenting with visual-motor integration problems. The aim of this study was to examine the factor structure of four visual-motor integration instruments through factor analysis.

As the number of therapists in mental health settings continues to decline, research is needed to explore the scope, satisfaction, and efficacy of services. In this study, we used Patton's (1997) Utilization-Focused Program Evaluation to explore scope of services, therapist and client satisfaction, and perceived efficacy of services in a ...

The purpose of this study was to gain an enhanced understanding of how people with multiple sclerosis (MS) experience their engagement in occupations. We interviewed 10 people and then analyzed the data gathered using the constant comparative method of grounded theory. The findings encompassed the core category "essentials of a ...

Assistive technology (AT) devices enable people with disabilities to function in multiple contexts and activities. The usability of such devices is fundamentally indicative of the user's level of participation in multiple roles and occupations. Seventy people who used power wheelchairs were interviewed using a novel tool, the Usability Scale for ...

Cimicifuga racemosa (black cohosh) is commonly used in traditional medicines as treatment for menopausal symptoms and as an antiinflammatory remedy. To clarify the mechanism of action and active principle for the antiinflammatory action, the effects of aqueous C. racemosa root extracts (CRE) and its major constituents on the release of ...

We have previously reported that dauricine exerted antiarrhythmic effects on various experimental arrhythmias. To further clarify its mechanism, the effects of dauricine on action potential duration (APD), early afterdepolarizations (EADs), triangulation, which is defined as the repolarization time from APD at 30% level ([APD.sub.30]) to APD at 90% level ([APD.sub.90]), ...

We studied the role of perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) in the control of vascular function in an in vivo experimental model of hypertension produced by angiotensin II infusion by osmotic minipump in adult male Wistar rats. Two weeks after infusion with angiotensin II, blood pressure in treated rats was significantly ...

Placental ABCB1 plays an important role in fetal protection against xenobiotics in the maternal circulation. Limited evidence indicates that glucocorticoids regulate ABCB1 expression in other tissues. Since approximately 10% of pregnant women are treated with synthetic glucocorticoids for threatened preterm labour, the effects of synthetic glucocorticoids on placental ABCB1 are ...

Cerebrocrast is a novel lipophilic dihydropyridine derivative with potential neuroprotective and antidiabetic properties. We have analyzed its interaction with L-type ([Ca.sub.V][1.2.sub.b]) and T-type ([Ca.sub.V]3.1) calcium channels using a wholecell patch clamp in HEK 293 cells. Cerebrocrast inhibited current flux through both [Ca.sub.V][1.2.sub.b] and [Ca.sub.V]3.1 channels. In both cases, the drug ...
Schweitzer, Morris - - 2009
Chronic apoptosis activation may participate in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) expansion. Statin treatment slows AAA progression independent of cholesterol lowering. We hypothesized that Atorvastatin treatment alters apoptosis protein expression and activation in AAAs. Protein was isolated from the central and distal portions of end-stage human AAA tissue obtained during surgical ...
Reddy, R.L.R. - - 2009
Dietary hypocholesterolemic adjuncts may have a beneficial role in the prevention and treatment of cholesterol gallstones (CGS). In this investigation, fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) seed was evaluated for this potential on the experimental induction of CGS in laboratory mice. CGS was induced by maintaining mice on a lithogenic diet (0.5% cholesterol) ...

Heart failure induced by aortic stenosis in young guinea pigs could constitute an interesting model for pharmacology, but its natural history needs to be characterized. One hundred five guinea pigs (3-4 weeks old) underwent thoracic aortic banding with 12- (B12G) or 14-gauge (B14G) needles or similar sham operations (S12G, S14G). ...
Chudasama, H.P. - - 2009
5-HT and noradrenaline are important neurotransmitters that control increase in body mass and are involved in the pathophysiology of obesity and depression. Sibutramine, an established anti-obesity agent, and duloxetine, an anti-depressant agent, are serotonin noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). The objective of the present study was to compare the anti-obesity effect ...
