Human Performance Laboratory, Faculty of Kinesiology, The University of Calgary and The National Sports Centre Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Med Sci Sports Exerc 32:684-9. 2000..The purpose was to monitor high-performance athletes throughout training macrocycles and competitions and examine the changes in plasma glutamine (Gm) and glutamate (Ga) concentrations in order to develop a model of tolerance to training...
- A framework for understanding the training process leading to elite performanceDavid J Smith
Human Performance Laboratory, Faculty of Kinesiology, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2N 2N4
Sports Med 33:1103-26. 2003..Finally, at competition time, optimal performance requires a healthy body, and integration of not only the physiological elements but also the psychological, technical and tactical components...
- Performance evaluation of swimmers: scientific toolsDavid J Smith
Human Performance Laboratory, Faculty of Kinesiology, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

- Vibration training: an overview of the area, training consequences, and future considerationsMatthew J Jordan
Canadian Sport Centre Calgary, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta T2N 1N4, Canada
J Strength Cond Res 19:459-66. 2005..Future research should be done with the aim of understanding the biological effects of vibration on muscle performance and also the effects of different vibration protocols on muscle performance...
- Erythropoietin does not demonstrate circadian rhythm in healthy menD Roberts
Faculty of Kinesiology, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada
J Appl Physiol 80:847-51. 1996..5 +/- 5.3 (SD) U/l. No significant circadian variation in serum Epo concentrations was observed in either group or when both groups were combined; however, a measure of individual variance was observed (mean deviation = 0.8 +/- 0.4 U/l)...
- Training principles and issues for ultra-endurance athletesCalvin Zaryski
Human Performance Laboratory, Faculty of Kinesiology, University of Calgary, 2500 University Drive NW, Calgary, AB T2N 2N4, Canada
Curr Sports Med Rep 4:165-70. 2005..Furthermore, the treatment of soft tissue after training or racing is necessary to control inflammation...
- Diurnal normobaric moderate hypoxia raises serum erythropoietin concentration but does not stimulate accelerated erythrocyte productionSpencer R McLean
Human Performance Laboratory, Faculty of Medicine, Health Sciences Centre, University of Calgary, 3330 Hospital Drive NW, Calgary, Alberta T2N 4N1, Canada
Eur J Appl Physiol 96:651-8. 2006..The results suggest that the degree of hypoxia was sufficient to stimulate increased erythropoietin production and release. However, the duration of hypoxic exposure was insufficient to propagate the erythropoietic cascade...
- Plasma-volume contraction and exercise-induced hypoxaemia modulate erythropoietin production in healthy humansD Roberts
Human Performance Laboratory, Faculty of Kinesiology, University of Calgary, 2500 University Drive N W, Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2N 1N4
Clin Sci (Lond) 98:39-45. 2000..The paradoxical responses of the increased haematocrit and the increase in Epo in subjects undergoing plasmapheresis suggests that plasma volume may also modulate the production of Epo...
- Tissue residues and urinary excretion of zilpaterol in sheep treated for 10 days with dietary zilpaterolWeilin L Shelver
Biosciences Research Laboratory, Agricultural Research Service, U S Department of Agriculture, 1605 Albrecht Boulevard, Fargo, North Dakota 58105, USA
J Agric Food Chem 54:4155-61. 2006..Because of its simplicity, ELISA is a convenient assay for determining zilpaterol levels in urine giving similar results to HPLC-fluorescence and LC-MS/MS-ES without requiring the extensive cleanup of the latter methods...
- Tissue distribution, elimination, and metabolism of dietary sodium [36Cl]chlorate in beef cattleDavid J Smith
Biosciences Research Laboratory, Agricultural Research Service, U S Department of Agriculture, 1605 Albrecht Boulevard, Fargo, North Dakota 58105 5674, USA
J Agric Food Chem 53:4272-80. 2005..0 ppm in adipose tissue, and 0.7 ppm in liver. These data indicate that sodium chlorate may be a viable preharvest food safety tool for use by the cattle industry...
- The role of mitochondrial uncoupling in 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine-mediated skeletal muscle hyperthermia and rhabdomyolysisDaniel E Rusyniak
Department of Emergency Medicine, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, 46202, USA
J Pharmacol Exp Ther 313:629-39. 2005..These findings suggest that MDMA uncouples skeletal muscle mitochondria in vivo but that this uncoupling is the result of indirect mechanisms...

J AOAC Int 85:1302-7. 2002..This IAC is a selective, efficient, and economical cleanup method in a variety of matrixes for ractopamine determination...
- Tissue distribution, elimination, and metabolism of sodium [36Cl]perchlorate in lactating goatsDavid J Smith
United States Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) Biosciences Research Laboratory, 1605 Albrecht Blvd, University Station, Fargo, North Dakota 58102-5674, USA
J Agric Food Chem 54:8829-35. 2006..The only radioactive residues observed were perchlorate and chloride ion. Bioavailability of perchlorate was poor in lactating goats, but the perchlorate that was absorbed intact was rapidly eliminated in milk and urine...
