Low intensity rTMS has sex-dependent effects on the local response of glia following a penetrating cortical stab injury.
Low intensity rTMS has sex-dependent effects on the local response of glia following a penetrating cortical stab injury. Exp Neurol. 2017 Jun 14;: Authors: Clarke D, Penrose MA, Harvey AR, Rodger J, Bates KA Abstract Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), a non-invasive form of brain stimulation, has shown experimental and clinical efficacy in a range of neuromodulatory models, even when delivered at low intensity (i.e. subthreshold for action potential generation). After central nervous system (CNS) injury, studies suggest that reactive astrocytes and microglia can have detrimental but also beneficial effects; thus modulating glial activity, for example through application of rTMS, could potentially be a useful therapeutic tool following neurotrauma. Immunohistochemistry was used to measure the effect of low intensity rTMS (LI-rTMS) on GFAP (astrocyte), IBA1 (microglial), and CS56 (proteoglycan) expression in a unilateral penetrating cortical stab injury model of glial scarring in young adult and aged male and female C57BL6/J mice. Mice received contralateral low frequency, ipsilateral low frequency, ipsilateral high frequency or sham LI-rTMS (4-5mT intensity), for two weeks following injury. There was no significant difference in the overall volume of tissue containing GFAP positive ((+)) astrocytes, IBA1(+) microglia, or proteoglycan expression, between sham and LI-rTMS-treated mice of all ages and sex. Importantly however, the density o...
Conclusions: Results of the present study support the interpersonal theory of suicide, which suggests that self-reported thwarted belongingness can foster WD. Clinical implications: Clinicians should consider social dissatisfaction and withdrawal as risk factors for WD and design interventions that foster social skills or meaningful connections.

CONCLUSIONS: we found an association between SIBO and allergic disease, especially allergic rhinitis, cow's milk protein allergy and asthma. Thus, SIBO should be ruled out in pediatric patients with CAP and allergic disease. PMID: 31617366 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: this meta-analysis supported the association of AF with increased risk of GERD. PMID: 31617365 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: these data support the hypothesis that the hepatitis C virus may worsen quality of life in asymptomatic patients. PMID: 31617364 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
We report a case of a 67-year-old female presented with hematemesis eventually diagnosed with duodenal mucormycosis, while radiology characteristics suggested malignancy. PMID: 31617363 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Taki S, Maekita T, Sakata M, Fukatsu K, Maeda Y, Iguchi M, Ito H, Kitano M Abstract Continuous duodenal levodopa/carbidopa intestinal gel delivery by a gastrostomy infusion system improves control of Parkinson's disease. The overall complication rates of percutaneous endoscopic gastrojejunostomy were reported to be 41% and 59% for immediate and delayed adverse events, respectively. A 72-year-old woman underwent percutaneous endoscopic gastrojejunostomy using the delivery system noted above. Abdominal pain and vomiting occurred 3 months later. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed a longitudinal ulcer extending...
Conclusions: Our study is the first to report that endoscopic therapy of PFCs using LAMS is safe and effective even in a community hospital setting with limited resources and support compared to large academic centers. PMID: 31615198 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
