With potential implications for recovery and conditioning practices, the aim of this study was to assess the cumulative and residual response of angle specific eccentric knee flexor (eccKF) strength indices following soccer-specific activity. Thirteen semi-professional soccer players were therefore required to complete a 90-minute soccer-specific treadmill running. with eccKF isokinetic strength assessments completed pre-trial, immediately post-trial, and 48 hours post-trial. The strength assessments comprised the completion of 5 repetitions at angular velocities of 60 and 300 deg·s-1. Isokinetic data was analysed for measures of peak torque (PT), angle of peak torque (APT), functional range (FR), and angle specific torque (AST). Significant post-trial impairments were observed for measures of slow velocity PT60 (6.6%) and AST300 (12.5%). Further significant differences were observed 48 hours post-trial for PT300 (10.7%) and PT60 (12.8%) PT, APT60 (~15°), and AST300 (>13.6%). These data have implications for post exercise recovery monitoring and the prescription of recovery modalities and conditioning practices in the 2 days following match-play. The AST and APT responses highlight the importance of analysis of the entire strength-angle curve and at a range of angular velocities.

Purification and identification of a serum protein increased by anthelmintic drugs for Dirofilaria immitis in dogs
Polyacrylamide gel electrophoretic analysis of canine serum protein has revealed that the administration of anthelmintics elicits an increase in a certain serum protein. This protein, named PT60, was partially purified by ammonium sulfate fractionation and preparative electrophoresis. The purified PT60 gave a single band with the molecular size of 53 kDa in sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis under non-reducing conditions. After reduction with 2-mercaptoethanol, two bands appeared at 35 kDa and 17 kDa, indicating that PT60 consists of two subunits which are linked with each other by disulfide bonds. PT60 had the capacity to bind to hemoglobin. In an immunodiffusion test, an antiserum against PT60 cross-reacted with canine haptoglobin (Hp). N-terminal amino acid sequences of two PT60 subunits were identical to those of alpha and beta subunits of canine Hp, respectively. Thus, PT60 was identified as Hp.
