Our aim was to produce estimates of incidence, prevalence, and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) for motor neuron diseases for 195 countries and territories from 1990 to 2016 as part of the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) 2016.MethodsThe motor neuron diseases included in this study were amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, spinal muscular atrophy, hereditary spastic paraplegia, primary lateral sclerosis, progressive muscular atrophy, and pseudobulbar palsy. Incidence, prevalence, and DALYs were estimated using a Bayesian meta-regression model. We analysed 14 165 site-years of vital registration cause of death data using the GBD 2016 cause of death ensemble model. The 84 risk factors quantified in GBD 2016 were tested for an association with incidence or death from motor neuron diseases...

ConclusionOur 4-week program reduced some aspects of fatigue and improved some aspects of quality of life in a small group of ambulatory and non-ambulatory individuals with MS. Good feasibility and significant positive changes from baseline warrant further exploratory work.Trial registrationName of the registry: The Impact of Exercise Training on Living Quality in Multiple Sclerosis.

Authors: Wang H, Jiang E, Wang K, Deng Z, Zhan H, Shen Z, Niu W Abstract Objective: To compare the immediate and short term effectiveness of Shi's Daoyin therapy (DT) rather than the Melbourne Protocol (MP) in terms of pain, mobility, and isometric strength of cervical muscles in nonacute nonspecific neck pain patients. Material and Methods: A total of 114 nonacute nonspecific neck pain patients aged 20~50 years were recruited and randomly assigned to be treated by either Shi's DT or the MP. 56 cases and 54 cases received treatment for 3 weeks and were evaluated before and after intervention and at 3-week follo...

GermanAbstractPatient-reported outcome measures are increasingly used to access pain, disability, physical function, and mental status to quantify effectiveness of surgical intervention in cervical myelopathy, yet each score has little meaning without established thresholds linked to clinical benefit. We set out to develop thresholds for substantial clinical benefit (SCB) in patients undergoing surgery for cervical myelopathy and to eva...
