EMERYVILLE, Calif - Tuesday, October 28th 2014 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- KineMed, Inc. and the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine’s (USARIEM) Military Nutrition Division announced today they are entering into a partnership to examine KineMed’s platform technology to assess skeletal muscle protein synthesis and muscle mass in Warfighters.
The U.S. military seeks to better understand muscle adaptive responses to operational stressors in order to identify nutritional requirements and strategies that promote musculoskeletal health and resilience. “We are honored that the U.S. Army is applying our tests of muscle mass and function to optimize support of its Warfighters,” said David Fineman, CEO & Chairman of KineMed.
This collaborative project will use KineMed’s state-of-the-art proteomic and stable isotope techniques to examine predictive responses indicative of changes in skeletal muscle protein synthesis and/or skeletal muscle mass in response to operational stressors including energy deficit, energy surplus, military training, and deployment to harsh environments and alterations in field and garrison feeding programs. “This partnership anchors our strategy to broadly expand our Muscle and Health Division,” Fineman added.
