Background While the integration of patient and public involvement (PPI) in clinical research is now widespread and recommended as standard practice, meaningful PPI in pre-clinical, discovery science research is more difficult to achieve. One potent...

Contrast‐enhanced ultrasound repeatability for the measurement of skeletal muscle microvascular blood flow (2023)
Journal Article
Jones, E. J., Atherton, P. J., Piasecki, M., & Phillips, B. E. (2023). Contrast‐enhanced ultrasound repeatability for the measurement of skeletal muscle microvascular blood flow. Experimental Physiology, 108(4), 549-553. https://doi.org/10.1113/ep091034

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) can be used to directly assess skeletal muscle perfusion. However, its repeatability over time has not yet been validated and therefore its use in longitudinal measures (i.e., exploring the impact of a chronic inte...

Loss of muscle mass in the immediate post-operative period is associated with inadequate dietary protein and energy intake (2023)
Journal Article
Hardy, E. J., Deane, C. S., Lund, J. N., & Phillips, B. E. (2023). Loss of muscle mass in the immediate post-operative period is associated with inadequate dietary protein and energy intake. European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 77, 503-505. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41430-023-01264-0

Despite the implementation of ‘Enhanced Recovery After Surgery’ (ERAS) protocols, major abdominal surgery is still associated with significant and detrimental losses of muscle mass and function in the post-operative period. Although ERAS protocols ad... Read More about Loss of muscle mass in the immediate post-operative period is associated with inadequate dietary protein and energy intake.
