The Functional Head Impulse Test to Assess Oscillopsia in Bilateral Vestibulopathy

This study compared the fHIT with the Dynamic Visual Acuity assessed on a treadmill (DVAtreadmill) and Oscillopsia Severity Questionnaire (OSQ) in the context of objectifying the experience of oscillopsia in patients with BV. Methods: Inclusion criteria comprised: (1) summated slow phase velocity of nystagmus of

HurtAbstract:Avian A(H7N9) infections in humans have been reported in China since 2013 and are of public health concern due to their severity and pandemic potential. Oseltamivir and peramivir are neuraminidase inhibitors (NAIs) routinely used for the treatment of A(H7N9) infections, but variants with reduced sensitivity to these drugs can emerge in patients during treatment. Zanamivir and laninamivir are NAIs that are used less frequently. Herein, we performed in vitro serial passaging experiments w...

Authors: Vigna L, Morelli F, Agnelli GM, Napolitano F, Ratto D, Occhinegro A, Di Iorio C, Savino E, Girometta C, Brandalise F, Rossi P Abstract Epidemiological data indicate that subjects affected by obesity have an increased risk of developing mood disorders. The relationship between obesity and mood disorders is bidirectional. We assessed whether a Hericium erinaceus treatment improved depression, anxiety, sleep, and binge eating disorders after 8 weeks of supplementation in subjects affected by overweight or obesity under a low calorie diet regimen. Looking for a possible clinical biomarker, we assessed the seru...

This study evaluates the costs and utilities of different treatment strategies for stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients based on Markov model and provides guidance for clinical decision and health policy making. Patients with stable COPD from four subcenters had been investigated. A Markov model with three states, namely, GOLD 1-2, GOLD 3-4, and death, was built using TreeAge Pro 2011 software. Cost-utility ratio (CUR) and incremental cost-utility ratio (ICUR) from forty Markov circles were applied to measuring the economics evaluation of three different treatments. A total of 236 stable COPD patien...

Authors: Oei SL, Thronicke A, Schad F Abstract In early tumor development, cancer cells develop a plethora of strategies to escape surveillance from the adaptive and innate immune system. Cancer immunotherapies, in particular immune checkpoint inhibitors, are becoming a highly promising cancer therapeutic approach that has remarkable increased progress in combating various cancer types. Unfortunately, their mechanisms of action induce some complications, such as inflammatory reactions and immune-related adverse events. In the management of side effects during anticancer therapy, complementary and integrative therap...

Authors: Li B, Yang M, He GL, Gao XG, Li L, Zhai WS Abstract Objective. To evaluate the efficacy and safety of traditional Chinese medicine in preventing kidney damage caused by Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP) in Children by meta-analysis. Methods. We systematically searched the main Chinese and English electronic databases and collected randomized controlled trials of Chinese herbs in children with HSP until July 2018. Then we used the bias risk assessment tool in Cochrane Handbook 5. 1. 0 to complete the risk assessment of the included studies. We utilized STATA12.0 and RevMan 5.3 for meta-analysis and GRADE pro. ...
