Purpose of review Physical inactivity is common in hemodialysis patients, and is associated with disability and poor outcomes. We summarize the effects of aerobic, resistance or mixed exercise training on aerobic capacity, muscle mass and strength, dialysis efficiency, quality of life and cardiovascular adaptation according to clinical studies on this population, also focusing on knowledge gaps as topics for future research. Finally, we put evidence into clinical context deriving practical indications for exercise implementation in these patients. Recent findings In hemodialysis patients, aerobic or mixed exercise tra...

Authors: La Torre D, Della Torre A, Chirchiglia D, Volpentesta G, Guzzi G, Lavano A Abstract Introduction: Major depression (MDD) is the leading cause of years lost to disability worldwide. Pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy are effective treatments in most depressive episodes: but, about the 30% of MDD patients remain symptomatic, and relapse is a common event. Recently, deep brain stimulation (DBS) has emerged as a valid therapeutic option in treatment-resistant depression (TRD) patients.Areas covered: In this paper, the authors summarize the findings of studies focused on these pathophysiologic phenomena and specifi...

Innate immune responses are critical in stroke pathophysiology, and microglia are key cellular effectors in the CNS response to ischemia/reperfusion. Using a transcriptional analysis approach, we identified a robust interferon (IFN)-stimulated gene res...

Conclusions: The results of this study suggest a difference in perspective between the more optimistic view of persons with dementia and their informal caregivers and the more critical view of physiotherapy experts regarding the most important factors that influence PA participation. In addition, there was a strong focus on the individual characteristics that influence PA behavior that warrant personalized interventions to promote PA in persons with dementia.

AbstractDespite the prominence of sexual health concerns in the spinal cord injury (SCI) population, education regarding sexual functioning and related matters is not well integrated into rehabilitation processes or ongoing care in SCI. Conceptual sexual health care frameworks encompass a range of biopsychosocial factors and recommend utilizing an interdisciplinary approach to meet the diverse needs of individuals with disabilities. Yet, it is rare to have a truly integrated treatment team dedicated to sexual health and functioning in SCI rehabilitative settings. The program described in this article attempts to align itse...

This study aimed to evaluate the long-term effects of the first-line immunotherapies on relapse and disability, and identify the prognostic predictors in NMOSD.MethodsIn this prospective cohort study, we enrolled patients with NMOSD from Southwest China and performed a long-term follow-up. We compared no immunotherapies (NIT) versus treatment of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), azathioprine (AZA), or only corticosteroid (CS). Cox proportional-hazards model was used to explore the prognostic predictors in NMOSD.ResultsUltimately, 281 patients were enrolled during 2009 to 2017. The proportions of relapse, motor disability, and m...
