Inflammatory back pain and associated disease conditions among patients with chronic low back pain in Bangladesh

In this study, we estimated the prevalence of IBP and the subtypes of SpA in a tertiary hospital in Bangladesh. MethodsThis 1 year cross‐sectional study was conducted among 240 CLBP patients in a rheumatology outpatient clinic. Assessment of Spondyloarthritis International Society classification criteria of IBP and predefined recognized classification criteria were followed to define different subtypes of SpA. Means and standard deviations were reported for continuous variables. Descriptive and bi‐variate analyses were accordingly performed. ResultsOf 240 CLBP patients, 60 (25%) had IBP and 180 (75%) had mechanical back pain (MBP). Among the 60 IBP patients, 52 (86.6%) had predominantly axial SpA (axSpA) and eight (13.4%) had predominantly peripheral spondyloarthritis. In the axSpA group, 49 (94.2%) had radiographic axSpA (rd‐axSpA) also known as AS and three (5.8%) had non‐radiographic axSpA (nr‐axspA). AxSpA patients could be divided into eight (15.35%) with psoriasis, two (3.8%) with reactive arthritis and one patient (1.9%) had arthritis associated with inflammatory bowel disease. Fifty (83.3%) IBP and 73 (40.6%) MBP patients had age at onset of back pain

ConclusionsBecause dental anomalies, especially radiculomegaly, are a primary feature of OFCD syndrome, dentists should be aware of the clinical and radiographic features. Radiculomegaly poses a distinct challenge to dentists, and reports of dental therapy provided to these patients are sparse. Early diagnosis of the syndrome may prevent dental challenges and improve prognosis.

Neurotrophins such as nerve growth factor (NGF) have long been identified as drivers of neurogenesis during development and regeneration, but intriguingly they were also known to be expressed in human tumors where they can stimulate cancer cell growth. Recent findings have un...

MaweABSTRACTOsteoporosis and bone fractures occur at higher frequency in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and decreased bone mass is observed in animal models of colitis. Another consistent feature of colitis is increased serotonin (5-HT) availability in the intestinal mucosa. Since gut-derived 5-HT can decrease bone mass, via activation of 5-HT1B receptors on pre-osteoblasts, we tested the hypothesis that 5-HT contributes to bo...

Besides, various literatures reported that IDMT is a synthetic ligand of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPARγ). Rosiglitazone (RSG), an insulin-sensitizer, is also a sy...

Lowering the default number of opioid pills prescribed through an electronic medical record system to patients undergoing outpatient operations can significantly reduce the mean amount of opioid analgesia prescriptions, reports astudy published today inJAMA Surgery. The findings point to a low-cost and potentially scalable intervention to continue to decrease the overprescribing of opioids.On May 18, 2017, the Yale New Haven Health System, which uses a unified electronic medical record (EMR) system, lowered the default number of pills on all electronic opioid prescriptions from 30 to 12. To evaluate the impact of this chan...
