ConclusionsThis study provides new options for assessing the CM diagnosis, which may improve RA treatment strategies. Identification of joint non-related symptoms and pathogenic external factors such as algor/“cold” may help understanding activation of specific immunological mechanisms, changes of capillary endothelium and the microcirculation disturbances. Overactivation of the functional defence mechanisms by algor/“cold” seem to be of utmost importance for RA symptoms.

CONCLUSIONS: Data on the impact of rapid, cloud-enabled, onsite testing on patient health, care delivery, and clinical decision-making is scarce. More robust real-world data would confirm the validity of our model. Rapid, cloud-enabled, onsite testing has the potential to generate significant value to payers.

Publication date: 10 November 2018Source: Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical, Volume 273Author(s): Jin Kang, Fangjun Huo, Yongbin Zhang, Jianbin Chao, Robert M. Strongin, Caixia YinAbstractBODIPY and coumarin were assembled into a single scaffold that was cleaved upon oxidation by ClO−, thereby enabling ratiometric fluorescent detection ClO−. The ratiometric fluorescence response was distinctive (I510/I660 = 18.3) in the presence of ClO−. It was accompanied by an obvious solution color change from dark-blue to colorless. The probe is highly selective and sensitive towards ClO−, with a r...

(Natural News) Armenian researchers investigated the synergy of boswellic acid and curcumin in the treatment of osteoarthritis patients. They reported that a supplemental blend of boswellic acid and curcumin was more effective in relieving the painful symptoms of the disease than turmeric-derived curcumin alone. The study was supported by the Yerevan State Medical University of...

Conclusion: Within their limits, the present findings indicate that: a) moderate OHRQoL as assessed by GOHAI may contribute to high severity impairment of health in RA patients, and b) the GOHAI questionnaire may represent a more adequate tool than OHIP-14 for assessing OHRQoL in patients suffering from RA.

This study aims to evaluate whether targeted simulation model training in residency can increase residents' comfort level in performing intra-articular knee injections and decrease the pain of the procedure, as reported by patients injected. Residents were randomized into intervention and control groups. The comfort level of the residents as well as the pain levels from the procedures, as reported by patients, was recorded. The mean comfort level for the intervention group was 1.2, compared with that in the control group, which was 2.13; P value was .047. The mean pain level in the intervention group was 1.8, whereas in th...

For people considering hip or knee replacement surgery, it’s something they want — and need — to know. In the US alone, surgeons perform more than 600,000 knee replacements and about 330,000 hip replacements each year. These operations can provide a major improvement in quality of life and function for those with severe arthritis. On the other hand, there are risks associated with the operation (as is true for any major surgery), there is a long road to recovery even when all goes well, and these operations aren’t cheap. For knee replacement surgery alone, an estimated $9 billion or more is spent ea...
