Muscle tissue damage in Navy Special Warfare Personnel
Hackney Anthony6/12/2002 - 9/30/2004
|Sponsoring Organization:||Naval Health Research Center|
|Awarding Organization Is:||University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill|
|Project Funding History:|
US Navy Special Warfare personal (USNSWP) constantly place them in 'harms way'. Typically they must undergo routine heavy physical training as well as demanding physical tasks when on operational missions. Personal who experience severe muscle trauma in performing operations may be compromised and unable to perform subsequent operations. This project will examine a series of biological markers in blood and urine to determine if they have predictive capacity for indicating when physiological stress is become excessive in USNSWP. The PI will collect blood and urine samples during mock operations performed by personal In Californian military training grounds. Samples will be partially analyzed on site to assess biomarkers. The PI will return some samples to UNC-CH for further analysis in his laboratory.
