This study evaluated the synergistic effects of ultrasound (US) and low-level laser therapy (LLLT) with or without therapeutic exercises (TE) in women with knee osteoarthritis. Forty-two Caucasian women with knee osteoarthritis were allocated into three groups: (1) the placebo group who did not perform TE, but the prototype without emitting light or ultrasonic waves was applied, (2) the US  + LLLT group in which only the prototype was applied and (3) the TE + US + LLLT group that performed TE before the prototype was applied. However, 35 women completed the full clinical trial. Pre...

This study assesses the validity of the GFI in this patient group. End-stage hip or knee OA patients completed the GFI (range 0 –15, ≥ 4 = frail) before arthroplasty surgery. Convergent validity was determined by Spearman-rank correlation between the SF-12 physical (PCS) and mental (MCS) component scores and the physical and mental GFI-domains, respectively. Discriminant validity was assessed by means of overall GFI- score and the pain-domain of the Hip/Knee Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (HOOS/KOOS). Altogether 3275 patients were included of whom 2957 (90.3%) completed the GFI. Mean GFI-scores w...

DISCUSSION: Five studies met the inclusion criteria and were included in the systematic review. The average Jadad score was 1, the average level of evidence 3. In two studies, infection and revision occured more often in obese patients. Patients with morbid obesity had a higher risk of wound revision and periprosthetic joint infections. Three studies showed that obese patients had significantly lower scores for clinical outcome measures in function and pain. The legal aspect was not discussed in any of the five studies. Overall, published data are sparse and very heterogeneous. Therefore comparing these five studies is dif...

Authors: Maurelli M, Bergamaschi R, Antonini A, Fargnoli MC, Puma E, Mallucci G, Totaro R, Girolomoni G Abstract Interferon-beta (IFNβ) are effective treatments for relapsing multiple sclerosis. IFNβ treatment includes subcutaneous (sc) IFNβ-1b, intramuscular and sc IFNβ-1a, and sc pegylated IFNβ-1a (PEG-IFNβ-1a). PEG-IFNβ-1a offers the advantage of a prolonged duration of action with a less frequent administration (every 2 weeks) and a higher patient adherence. However, the use of subcutaneous interferons could be characterized by potential skin toxicity. Injection site reactions...
