ConclusionThere was no significant association between the patterns of electronic devices use and CTS symptoms. The high prevalence of CTS symptoms necessitates awareness programs, especially among the young population. Although this work did not prove the association, further studies with confirmatory clinical testing are recommended.

AbstractMucosal tolerance refers to the physiological process by which exposure of proteins to the mucosal surface preferentially induces tolerance. The route of mucosal administration can determine the type of regulatory T (Treg) cells induced, with the oral route inducing transforming growth factor ‐β‐producing Treg cells and the nasal route inducing interleukin‐10‐secreting Treg cells. Previous studies of oral tolerance to autoantigens in humans, including patients with multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes, led to mixed results and negative phase III trials, althoug h oral immunotherap...

This article presents an overview of the types of mobile apps that can be used for RA and discusses the opportunities and challenges associated with them.
Conclusion Familial associations with several autoimmune diseases suggest genetic sharing and challenge to gene identification.
This study used particle-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) technique to analyze the elements in this plant. The advantage of this technique over other methods is the multi-elemental analysis and high sensitivity. The objective of this study was to determine the elemental compositions and to develop new standard methods for analyzing plant elemental compositions in Thailand. A 2-MeV proton beam was used to identify and characterize major and minor elements namely Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Ti, Mn, Fe, and Zn in Gymnema Inodorum Lour. Results have shown that these elements are present in varying concentrations in the selected ...
We report on two cases of off-label droxidopa use. The first case was for diabetic autonomic neuropathy-associated orthostatic hypotension, and the second case was for hypotension due to autonomic dysfunction associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Although the outcomes differed in each case, this article contributes to the literature demonstrating that droxidopa may have varying effects in treating orthostatic hypotension of non-neurogenic etiology.

This study investigated the association between atrial conduction time and prolidase activity, a collagen synthesis enzyme, and P-wave dispersion (PWD) in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF). METHODS: Exclusion criteria included age of
Because it has become such a frequent item in everyday meals, suggesting that something so commonplace must be fine, people often ask: Is wheat really that bad? Let’s therefore catalog the health conditions that are associated with wheat consumption. Health conditions we know with 100% certainty are caused by consumption of wheat and related grains: Celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, cerebellar ataxia, “idiopathic” peripheral neuropathy, temporal lobe seizures, gluten encephalopathy, type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune hepatitis, autoimmune pancreatitis, tooth decay Health conditions ...
