We investigated the therapeutic efficacy of simulated microgravity-cultured mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) injection following spinal cord ischemia−reperfusion injury. Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into sham, phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), normal gravity-cultured MSC (MSC-1G), and simulated...

Authors: Penzenstadler L, Molodynski A, Khazaal Y Abstract Objectives: The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) was adopted at the United Nations Assembly in 2006. The main aim of the convention is to ensure equal rights for people with disabilities including the expression of people's own "will and preferences" concerning health treatment. Article 12 demands the respect of a person's "rights, will and preferences" (CRPD) and suggests supported decision making (SDM) when possible. The aim of this review was to gather information regarding the SDM implementation from a cli...

Authors: Jackson A Abstract The United States' entry into the First World War prompted progressives to reform veterans' entitlements in the hopes of creating a system insulated from corruption and capable of rehabilitating disabled veterans into productive members of society. The replacement of pensions with medical care for wounded and disabled soldiers through the Reconstruction Hospital System was originally intended as a temporary measure but resulted in establishing the foundations of the modern veterans' health care system. Yet, these reforms would not have been possible without the support from the community...

By putting our bodies on the line and risking our liberty, we make this great neglected issue impossible to ignoreA few hours after this column is published, I hope to be in a police cell. I don ’t yet know what the charge will be, where I will be arrested or when, but I know that if I go home this evening without feeling the hand of the law on my sleeve, I will have failed. This may sound like a strange ambition, but I believe it is a reasonable one.Related:The climate revolution must be accessible – this fight belongs to disabled people too | Hannah DinesContinue reading...

AbstractNeurocognitive difficulties are highly prevalent among people with schizophrenia and have been linked to increased inflammation, as well as dysfunction and disability. Poor neurocognitive functioning has also been documented in individuals at clinical high risk for psychosis (CHR) and a burgeoning literature point to alterations in inflammation markers in this population. However, there is limited information regarding the putative link between inflammation and neurocognition in CHR individuals, and the potential role of inflammation in the development of cognitive difficulties and psychosis. As previous reports in...

Conclusion: Adolescents with Marfan syndrome perceived limitations and restrictions in (physical) functioning. They perceived problems in keeping up with peers and perceived to differ from peers due to their appearance and disability. This warrants awareness and tailored physical, psychosocial, educational and environmental support programmes to improve (physical) functioning and empowerment of adolescents with Marfan syndrome.What is known:• Marfan syndrome is a hereditary connective tissue disorder.• Marfan syndrome affects multiple systems.What is new:• Adolescents with Marfan syndrome perceive (1) proble...

AbstractNegative pain beliefs are associated with adverse pain outcomes; however, less is known regarding how positive, adaptive factors influence pain and functioning. These relationships are especially important to examine in older adults with pain, given increased disability and functional limitations in this population. We investigated whether pain resilience moderated the relationships between negative pain beliefs (fear-avoidance, pain catastrophizing) and pain outcomes (functional performance, movement-evoked pain) in sixty older adults with low back pain. Higher pain resilience was associated with lower fear-avoidance (p
