Thank you! I sifted through articles involving biomarkers for athletic injury and decided upon a few that would be clinically relevant and appropriate for our methodology. For example, estrogen plays a role in ligamentous laxity, rate of perceived exertion so we initially wanted to include this marker in our study. We later found that in order to get accurate estrogen readings from each of our subjects, we would have to take readings every 5 minutes!
