Authors: Berekmeri A, Mahmood F, Wittmann M, Helliwell P Abstract INTRODUCTION: Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are inflammatory immune mediated conditions which can cause considerable disability and reduced quality of life. Management can be complex as clinical heterogeneity may lead to different treatment pathways. Tofacitinib is a novel, oral janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor with proven efficacy in rheumatoid arthritis. Areas covered: This review analyses recent studies of tofacitinib in psoriatic disease treatment. The relevant literature was identified using clinicaltrials.gov, PubMed and Google Scholar. T...

ConclusionWe currently have eight hip-disability functional assessment questionnaires adapted to Spanish with satisfactory psychometric properties. We can measure the patient's perceived impact of his or her hip disease by selecting, among the different options, those alternatives that best fit our clinical or research objectives.ResumenObjetivoRealizar una revisión sistemática de la calidad de los procedimientos de adaptación y de las propiedades psicométricas de los cuestionarios autoadministrados de valoración funcional de cadera adaptados a la población española.Material...

Casein kinase 2 (CK2) is expressed in neuronal cells and was reported to be neuroprotective during cerebral ischemia. Recently, we reported that CK2 is abundantly expressed by glial cells and myelin. However, in contrast to its role in cerebral (gray matter) ischemia, CK2 activati...

AbstractIntimacy and sexuality can make vital contributions to quality of life but may become complicated or problematic for stroke survivors and their partners/spouses. Several studies have focused on survivor feelings and perceptions of post-stroke sexuality, but partners are generally neglected. The purpose of this project is to identify partner perspectives and experiences related to intimacy and sexuality following a stroke. Nine participants were interviewed in person or by phone about relationship changes and their information, supports or resources regarding intimacy and sexuality. Transcripts were analyzed using t...

This study examined the associations between gait variability based on common spatiotemporal parameters and energetic cost of walking in persons with multiple sclerosis. Design Eighty-six persons with multiple sclerosis underwent the 6-min walk while wearing a portable metabolic unit. The cost of walking was generated by dividing the net steady-state VO2 (milliliter per kilogram per minute) by walking speed during the 6-min walk. Participants further completed two trials of walking on the GAITRite mat at a self-selected pace for measuring spatiotemporal parameters. Variability of step length, step time, stride length, s...

Children with severe disabilities, serious cognitive impairments and medically complex situations require more specialized health care during their lifetimes. But establishing a consistent way to identify their overall health needs and measure progress in meeting those needs has been an elusive goal.A team of UCLA researchers has developed a set of health outcome measures for such children using a software program that aggregates the latest research and expertise about how to treat their conditions. Theteam ’s work, published in the  journal Pediatrics, proposes a standard to shape the ideal model of care for ch...
