Conclusions: Compared to the individual learning experience, genetic influences seem to play a minor role in explaining variation in placebo analgesia in this experimental paradigm. However, our results are restricted to placebo effects through conditioning on pain in healthy volunteers and should be replicated in larger samples and in patients. Furthermore, potential gene–environment interactions should be further investigated.

Conclusions: Following oesophago-gastric cancer surgery, patients experience physical and psychosocial difficulties which can hamper recovery, but many of which are amenable to rehabilitative intervention. Accordingly, rehabilitative measures throughout the early stages of recovery require investigation. Implications for Rehabilitation Curative treatment for oesophageal and gastric cancer is associated with significant risk of post-operative morbidity, resulting in a myriad of physical and nutritional challenges which may impact on post-operative physical recovery. Greater provision of physiotherapy services to counteract ...

CONCLUSIONS: Findings provide support for the influence of early life family-level factors on prospective risk of developing migraine, through symptoms of depression and anxiety. Addressing family dynamics in clinical practice may reduce unnecessary stress-related burdens on children and adolescents, which could lead to improvements in their somatic complaints.

Its development is independent from antitumoral mechanism and involves neuroinflammation. We investigated the role of the chemokine prokineticin (PK)2 in a mouse model of VCR induced neuropathy using a PK-receptors (PK-R) antagonist to counteract its development. We also evaluated emotional like deficits in...
