Amgen Presents First-Of-Its-Kind Data At AAN Annual Meeting Reinforcing Robust And Consistent Efficacy Of Aimovig ™ (erenumab) For Migraine Patients With Multiple Treatment Failures

The LIBERTY Trial was Conducted in Patients who Have Tried Two to Four Therapies Without Success -- a Uniquely Difficult-to-Treat Population Often Excluded From Migraine Prevention Trials Patients Taking Aimovig had Nearly Three-Fold Higher Odds of Having Their Migraine Days cut by Half or More Compared to Placebo Safety and Tolerability Were Consistent With Results Seen in the Pivotal Clinical Program; Over 97 Percent of Those Taking Aimovig Completed the Double-Blind Treatment Phase Data Selected by the American Academy of Neurology Science Committee as one of the Most Noteworthy Presentations at 2018 Annual Meeting THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (NA...

ConclusionDental implants complications are not uncommon. managing such complications are important to prevent serious complications. Non dental manifestations can also occur, such as this case, where chronic headache and sinusitis were observed. Accurate locating of the specific site of implant placement and knowledge of the anatomical landmark are important. Displaced dental implants into the maxillary sinus must be removed as soon as possible to avoid further complications.

AbstractBackgroundNovel therapeutic options with improved efficacy and safety profiles are needed for the prophylaxis of migraine. In recent years, the inhibition of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) signaling has attracted growing interest in the pharmacological research on migraine. Erenumab is the first fully human monoclonal antibody directed against the CGRP receptor to be approved for use in migraineurs.ObjectiveTo evaluate the efficacy and safety of erenumab as preventive treatment in patients with migraine using meta-analytical techniques.MethodsRandomized, placebo-controlled, single- or double-blinded trials ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewAs ambulatory surgery has become increasingly more common, the appropriate management of anticoagulation therapy in patients undergoing invasive procedures has become progressively more relevant to healthcare professionals. The purpose of this literature review is to provide an overview of current common anaticoagulants and their pharmacological properties and to evaluate recent relevant literature and bridging therapy and provide recommendations on risk-guided therapy.Recent FindingsWith the development of new drugs and the advancing study and practice of anticoagulation use, clinicians must keep ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe treatment of debilitating pain and loss of function secondary to lumbar stenosis is in high demand with the aging patient population. Options, including epidural steroid injections (ESIs) and medication therapy, are limited and it is unclear if they provide any functional improvements. In this prospective study, we evaluate functional outcomes in older adults with symptomatic lumbar stenosis treated with ESIs compared to those managed with medications by introducing the Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB). Our study was IRB-approved and included 16 patients, 68 to 83  years old, with...

ABSTRACT Migraine is a burdensome disorder. Current treatments are far from ideal. Recent knowledge has been indicating targets whose antagonism may improve efficacy. It is particularly true with the calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and the monoclonal antibodies anti-CGRP can interfere with this pathway and decrease the frequency of migraine attacks. Erenumab, fremanezumab and galcanezumab have recently been approved and eptinezumab is likely to be, soon. Although efficacy figures were not spectacular, tolerability and potential higher adherence were noteworthy. However, caution must be exercised. The time frame afte...

ConclusionSince there is often times a clinico-radiological discordance they are generally incidental findings in majority of cases. While complete surgical excision is the treatment of choice for the symptomatic cysts, cystic fluid diversion presents a better compromise nevertheless in cases where this may not be achieved.
