Meaningful Functional Change from Physical Therapy Provided in a Student Run Pro-Bono Clinic

The purpose was to determine factors associated with meaningful functional change in patients with chronic stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) during one semester at a student-run, pro-bono, physical therapy (PT) clinic.

CONCLUSION: This paper provides a new hybrid GSA-RDF classifier technique to segment the ischemic stroke lesions in MR images. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed technique has the Root Mean Square Error (RMSE), Mean Absolute Percentage Error (MAPE), and Mean Bias Error (MBE) ranges are 16.5485 %, 7.2654 %, and 2.4585 %individually. The proposed RDF-GSA algorithm has better precision and execution when compared with the existing ischemic stroke segmentation method. PMID: 31975663 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 23 January 2020Source: Multiple Sclerosis and Related DisordersAuthor(s): Arturo de Falco, Marta De Simone, Florindo d'Onofrio, Daniele Spitaleri, Fabrizio Antonio de FalcoAbstractMultiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease characterized by inflammation, demyelination and neurodegeneration in the central nervous system. Recent studies suggested that patients with MS might have a greater risk of ischaemic stroke (IS). IS treatment with intravenous alteplase (IVA) in MS has rarely been reported. This could be due to the challenging diagnosis between acute IS and MS relapse, considering tha...

AbstractEarly active multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions can be classified histologically into three main immunopathological patterns of demyelination (patterns I –III), which suggest pathogenic heterogeneity and may predict therapy response. Patterns I and II show signs of immune-mediated demyelination, but only pattern II is associated with antibody/complement deposition. In pattern III lesions, which include Baló’s concentric sclerosis, primary oligod endrocyte damage was proposed. Serum antibody reactivities could reflect disease pathogenesis and thus distinguish histopathologically defined MS patterns. ...

Publication date: Available online 9 January 2020Source: PharmaNutritionAuthor(s): Menizibeya O. WelcomeAbstractOver the past decades, evidences have consistently shown that neuroinflammation is a critical underlying process in a range of CNS diseases, including neurodegenerative disorders, depression, sleep disorders, and stroke. Thus prevention of neuroinflammation represents one of the most important goals in the treatment of these disorders. Unfortunately, the mechanisms of neuroinflammation in different CNS disorders are not fully understood. Here, I review recent literature data on the mechanisms of neuroinflammation...

AbstractThe retina is an extension of the central nervous system and has been considered to be a simplified, more tractable and accessible version of the brain for a variety of neuroscience investigations. The optic nerve displays changes in response to underlying neurodegenerative diseases, such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer ’s disease, as well as inner retinal neurodegenerative disease, e.g., glaucoma. Neurodegeneration has increasingly been linked to dysfunctional energy metabolism or conditions in which the energy supply does not meet the demand. Likewise, increasing lactate levels have been correl...

This study confers the discipline, frameworks, and methodologies used by different deep learning techniques to diagnose different human neurological disorders. Here, one hundred and thirty-six different articles related to neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders diagnosed using different deep learning techniques are studied. The morbidity and mortality rate of major neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders has also bee n delineated. The performance and publication trend of different deep learning techniques employed in the investigation of these diseases has been examined and analyzed. Different performance metrics ...

Conclusions: Thirty-three studies were included in the current review. Based on the reliability and validity calculations, including a static as well as dynamic motor task seems valuable in a DT protocol for VD patients. To evoke CMI maximally in this population, both motor tasks should be performed while challenging the vestibular cognitive domains. Out of the large amount of cognitive tasks employed in DT studies, a clear selection for each of these domains, except for visuospatial abilities, could be made based on this review. The use of the suggested DTs will give a more accurate and daily life representation of cogn...
