  • The following definitions will be useful in understanding the research studies dealing with chronic conditions.
    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.
    Dynamic Strength:
    The amount of force that can be generated through motion (example: pressing a weight through the range of motion of the joint).
    Isometric Strength:
    The amount of force that can be generated against an immovable object (example: pressing against a wall).
    Protein Metabolism:
    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.
    Rheumatoid Arthritis:
    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.
