Assessment of energy expenditure in individuals with post-poliomyelitis syndrome
Conclusion Patients with PPS had a higher energy expenditure during life, especially in occupational physical activity at ages 21-30 years, suggesting this decade is critical for the development of PPS.RESUMO O objetivo deste estudo foi identificar o gasto energ ético, retrospectivamente, em indivíduos com síndrome pós-poliomielite (SPP) na população brasileira. Métodos Foi utilizado o questionário Baecke para avaliação da atividade física habitual (AFH) nos pacientes com SPP, sequela de poliomielite (SP) e grupo controle (GC). Participaram do estudo 116 indivíduos (SPP = 52, SP = 28, GC = 36). Resultados Pacientes com SPP tendem a aumentar a AFH dos 10 aos 20 anos, comparados com os grupos SP e GC. No período dos 21 aos 30 anos, houve aumento significativo da atividade física ocupacional do grupo SPP em relação ao grupo SP e a ati vidade física ocupacional (21-30 anos) correlacionou-se com o aparecimento dos sintomas da SPP. Conclusão Pacientes com SPP apresentam maior gasto de energia durante a vida, especialmente na atividade física ocupacional nas idades 21-30 anos, sugerindo que esta década é crítica para o desenv olvimento da SPP.
(Natural News) Many people still believe today that Dr. Jonas Salk was the “God” of cult pharmacology because he invented the polio vaccine. But did he? In actuality, all he did was conduct illegal medical experiments on mental patients, while the steady decline of mortality from infectious diseases was instantly (and falsely) credited to him...
[ANGOP] Luanda -Luanda province will launch one more round of polio vaccination campaign on 13-15 December, announced the health officials.
[Dalsan Radio] The first phase of a nationwide integrated polio and measles vaccination campaign has concluded in Somalia having achieved high coverage.
Malaysia has begun a vaccination campaign in a rural town on Borneo island after a 3-month-old boy was confirmed to have polio in the country's first case of the highly infectious virus in 27 years
[Premium Times] The Africa Regional Certification Commission (ARCC) for poliomyelitis eradication will on Monday begin to assess if Nigeria has successfully eradicated wild poliovirus.
A three-month-old Malaysian infant has been diagnosed with polio, the first case reported in the country in nearly three decades, a top health official said on Sunday.
[Premium Times] Polio experts have said if Nigeria sustains its current trend of not detecting or reporting any new case of wild polio virus, Nigeria and Africa at large should be certified polio free before the end of 2020.
[The Conversation Africa] Great strides have been made in the global effort to eradicate polio. Reported cases of wild poliovirus have decreased by over 99% from an estimated 350,000 cases in 1988 to 33 in 2018.
[Vanguard] Dr. Pascal Mkanda, Coordinator, Polio Eradication Programme, at World Health Organisation (WHO), Africa Regional Office, has commended the Nigerian Government over its achievements in the area of Polio eradication.
CONCLUSIONS: IPV-OPV compared to OPV may reduce VAPPs without affecting vaccination coverage, safety or humoral response, except P2 with sequential schemes without P2 components, but increase poliovirus faecal excretion after OPV challenge for some polio serotypes. Compared to IPV-only schedules, IPV-OPV may have little or no difference on SAEs, probably has little or no effect on persons with protective humoral response, may increase neutralising antibodies, and probably reduces faecal excretion after OPV challenge of certain polio serotypes. Using three IPV doses as part of a IPV-OPV schedule does not appear to be better...
