This study tests VQ´s measurement invariance in a sample of women with Chronic Pain (CP) (N = 231) and from the general population (N = 268), its temporal stability in CP (6-months) (N = 117) and its incremental validity in a sample of men and women from the general population (N = 169). Results confirmed the VQ´s two-factor structure, as well as its measurement invariance. Also, the VQ was temporally stable (6-months) in CP. Both factors (Progress and Obstruction) were significantly correlated in the expected directions with cognitive fusion, mindful awareness, self-compassion, depressive, anxi...

In this study, the effect of the consumption of Annona muricata L. (Annonaceae) leaves (AM) was investigated on a model for intermittent cold stress (ICS)-induced fibromyalgia in mice. An aqueous extract of AM was investigated in experiments involving 60 five-week-old female mice C57BL/6J.The animals were allocated into six groups (n = 10). Groups (I) Healthy control, (II) ICS control, and (III) ICS + acetaminophen (0.5%), were all fed a standard diet, while groups (IV) and (V) received standard diets supplemented with 15% (AM15) and 30% (AM30) aqueous extract of AM leaves, respectively. Group (VI) received a stand...
