van Ilioara Oniga Several Ajuga species are used in Romanian folk medicine for their antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, to treat pain, fever or arthritis. Still, the active compounds responsible for these effects and their mechanism of action are scarcely known. This research was designed to investigate the phytochemical profile (e.g. iridoids, polyphenolic compounds, phytosterols), as well as the biological potential (antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory properties) of two selected Ajuga species collected from different regions of Romanian spontaneous flora. The main co...

Authors: Tian S, Yan Y, Qi X, Li X, Li Z Abstract BACKGROUND Rheumatoid arthritis model (CIA) rats were treated by tail vein injection of IL-10-modified bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) to investigate its feasibility and intrinsic molecular mechanism. MATERIAL AND METHODS The CIA rat model was established by induction type II collagen, and IL-10-modified BMSCs was established by transfecting BMSCs with adenovirus. IL-10-modified BMSCs were used to treat the CIA rats. The therapeutic effect was evaluated by measuring the changes in body weight, ankle swelling, and forced swimming time, as well as observati...

The Monarch external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (eTNS) System made history last week after it became the first device to win a nod from FDA to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It should be noted the technology has had CE mark since 2015. Monarch was developed by NeuroSigma and is indicated to help treat 7 to 12-year-olds suffering from ADHD. What makes this de novo clearance from FDA so significant is that typically pharmaceutical solutions are used to treat patients suffering from the neurological disorder. Monarch is about the size of a cellphone. The device generates a low-level electrical pulse ...

Abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Postoperative rehabilitation plays an indispensable role for a successful total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and the optimal exercises programs are not known. A single-centre, single-blind, randomised controlled trial was designed to explore whether tai chi chuan (TCC) exercises can improve the functional outcomes and the quality of life (QOL) in patients with primary TKA due to knee osteoarthritis (OA). MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred seven participants with primary TKA for end-stage knee OA were enrolled from January 2014 to January 2017. Patients were treated for 12 weeks eit...

AbstractAdvanced imaging has become just as vital for diagnosing, staging, and monitoring disease in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients as it is for cancer patients. Part 1 of this review discussed synovitis, tenosynovitis, erosions, and osteitis —key imaging findings that occur in patients with RA. Part 2 will now show how these features, in combination with clinical and serologic data, can assist clinical decision-making at various stages of a patient’s disease course. Specifically, assessing current disease activity and prognosticatin g future aggressiveness inform treatment decisions at initial presentation...

Disruption of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis, which has been reported in approximately 13% of all ankle fractures [1], can lead to post-traumatic arthritis and poor outcomes if not detected or properly treated [2]. Therefore, the importance of anatomical restoration and stabilization for disrupted syndesmosis has been emphasized [3 –5]. Nevertheless, the optimal evaluation methods and criteria for evaluating syndesmosis integrity are controversial. Traditionally, radiographic parameters, including tibiofibular overlap and clear space on simple radiographs, have been used for the diagnosis of disrupted syndesmosis [6,7].
