A state of ill health, malnutrition and wasting.
Small protein hormones that stimulate or inhibit many normal cell functions such as cell growth and differentiation.
The amount of force that can be generated through motion (example: pressing a weight through the range of motion of the joint).
The amount of force that can be generated against an immovable object (example: pressing against a wall).
The process by which proteins are broken down into amino acids which can be utilized by the body.
Left Ventricular Systolic Dysfunction:
Inefficiency in delivering blood from the left ventricle of the heart through the body: a type of chronic heart failure.
Postpolio Muscular Atrophy:
New muscular weakness and atrophy which develops in a patient 15 years or more after they experienced an initial attack by the polio virus.
A chronic inflammatory disorder resulting in joint deterioration.
Tumor Necrosis Factor:
A substance that stimulates the killing of microbes at the site of inflammation, also induces fever.
