Clinical efficacy of once-daily micronized purified flavonoid fraction 1000  mg tablet in patients with symptomatic chronic venous disease.

Clinical efficacy of once-daily micronized purified flavonoid fraction 1000 mg tablet in patients with symptomatic chronic venous disease. Curr Med Res Opin. 2018 Jul 11;:1-15 Authors: Kirienko A, Radak D, Maggioli A Abstract AIM: To investigate the clinical efficacy of micronized purified flavonoid fraction (MPFF) 1000 mg given as a single 1000 mg tablet once daily in patients suffering from chronic venous disease (CVD) versus MPFF 500 mg twice daily. METHODS: In an international, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group study, patients classified C0s to C4 according to Clinical Etiological Anatomic Pathophysiologic [CEAP] classification and with leg pain graded as superior to 4 cm on a 10-cm visual analog scale (VAS), were treated for 8 weeks with either MPFF 1000 mg once daily or MPFF 500 mg twice daily. The present post-hoc analysis focuses on the effect of treatment over time in patients randomized to the MPFF 1000 mg group. Leg pain was assessed at each follow-up visit by VAS. VAS scores over time were compared between in each visit using paired Student t tests. RESULTS: 87 patients over 174 were randomized to the MPFF 1000 mg group. Mean age (± SD) was 49.1±12.2 years, most of the patients were female (81.6%), the main CEAP classes of the most affected leg were C1 (20.7%), C2 (39.1%), C3 (33.33%) and the mean duration of CVD was 14.6±10.9 years. Patients wit...

Chronic nonbacterial osteomyelitis (CNO) is an innate immune system disorder that predominantly affects children. It can present as part of a syndrome or in isolation. It presents as bone pain with or without fever or objective swelling at the site. It is difficult to diagnose. Laboratory studies can be normal, whereas a biopsy reveals sterile osteomyelitis. Osteolytic or sclerotic bone changes may be seen on radiographs. However, MRI is more sensitive for detecting CNO and is considered the gold standard for monitoring the disease. Treatment depends on disease severity and includes nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, bis...

CONCLUSION: This result means that regulation of pain by CMT can alter functioning of brain regions in an extensive network including non-nociceptive regions. CMT reduced the affective experience of pain, while reductions of pain intensity ratings were less consistent. Brain changes have been demonstrated as a result of the application of psychological measures and may represent the clinical implications of changes in brain activity or morphology.

Authors: Thapa P, Euasobhon P Abstract Chronic postsurgical pain (CPSP) is an unwanted adverse event in any operation. It leads to functional limitations and psychological trauma for patients, and leaves the operative team with feelings of failure and humiliation. Therefore, it is crucial that preventive strategies for CPSP are considered in high-risk operations. Various techniques have been implemented to reduce the risk with variable success. Identifying the risk factors for each patient and applying a timely preventive strategy may help patients avoid the distress of chronic pain. The preventive strategies inclu...

Publication date: Available online 18 July 2018Source: Journal of Molecular BiologyAuthor(s): Ben Sidders, Anna Karlsson, Linda Kitching, Rubben Torella, Paul Karila, Anne PhelanAbstractDiseases such as chronic pain with complex aetiologies are unlikely to respond to single, target specific therapeutics but rather require intervention at multiple points within a perturbed disease system. Such approaches are being enabled by the rise of computational methods to identify key points of intervention and by new screening techniques that focus on a relevant condition or phenotype, rather than a specific target. Here we apply an ...
