ConclusionThe injuries treated in pets in British Columbia included abscesses, sprains and abrasions. Dogs were also treated with medicinal plants for rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain and articular cartilage injuries. More than 40 plants were used. Anal gland problems were treated with Allium sativum L., Aloe vera L., Calendula officinalis L., Plantago major L., Ulmus fulva Michx., Urtica dioica L. and the lichen Usnea longissima Ach. Antioxidants in plants, such as diarctigenin from Arctium lappa, used in ethnoveterinary medicine for rheumatoid arthritis and joint pain in pets are said to be of use in treating pathologica...

This study aimed to examine the effect of therapeutic exercise performed on sea sand on pain, fatigue, and balance ability in patients with CAI. METHODS: This study was designed as a randomized controlled trial. Subjects with a Cumberland Ankle Instability Tool (CAIT) score of less than 27 were selected. 22 subjects were randomly assigned to the sea sand (SS) group (n=11) or the self-management (SM) group (n=11). The SS group performed the therapeutic exercise on sea sand and the SM group conducted the exercises on a firm surface at home 5 times over the course of a week. To measure static balance, center of pressure (...

Schildhauer, Jan GeßmannAbstractThe Hybrid Assistive Limb Lumbar Type (HAL) is an active exoskeleton that provides motion according to the wearer’s voluntary drive. It was developed to support back muscles during repetitive lifting tasks. The purpose of this paper was to determine if the myoelectric activity of the back muscles is reduced or altered when using the HAL and to investigat...

This study reports the results of a clinical trial over a 2-month period, involving 74 episodic migraine patients who received ω-3 fatty acids, nano-curcumin, a combination of them, or a placebo. At the start and end of the study, the expression of COX-2/iNOS (in peripheral mononuclear blood cells isolated from patients) and COX-2/iNOS serum levels were measured, using real-time PCR and ELISA respectively. The frequency, severity and duration of pain attacks were also recorded. RESULTS: The results of the present trial showed that ω-3 fatty acids and nano-curcumin can reinforce each other's effects in the d...

CONCLUSIONS: Chest pain was the second most common chief complaint among patients admitted to the ED, and most patients were handled by the Clinic of Cardiology. More than one-third of the patients received a cardiac diagnosis, but the largest group of patients was discharged with a diagnosis of non-specific chest pain. Other conditions managed by non-cardiac medical specialties were less common. PMID: 30760035 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We previously found that intracerebroventricular injection of 26RFa produces an analgesic effect in a rat formalin test. In the present study, we directly tested the hypothesis that the analgesic effects of 26RFa in the formalin test are mediated in well-recognized regions of the descending inhibitory pain pathways, such as the rostral ventromedial medulla (RVM), locus coeruleus (LC), and periaqueductal grey (PAG...
