Conclusion: Our research outcome paves the way to create a device for cough monitoring in real-life situations. Significance: Our proposal is aligned with a more comfortable and less disruptive patient monitoring, with benefits for patients (allows self-monitoring of cough symptoms), practitioners (e.g., assessment of treatments or better clinical understanding of cough patterns), and national health systems (by reducing hospitalizations).

Conclusions: For chronic insomnia insomniacs, LLLT appears to shorten the sleep latency, decrease the number of awakening events at night, and improve the sleep efficiency. PMID: 31312225 [PubMed]

BACKGROUND: Acute use of methamphetamine affects the sympathetic system and causes symptoms like tachycardia, hypertension (HTN), tachypnea, peripheral blood vessels constriction, hyperthermia, and mydriasis that can lead to many medical complications. Thu...

Authors: D'Ambrosio P, Petillo R, Torella A, Papa AA, Palladino A, Orsini C, Ergoli M, Passamano L, Novelli A, Nigro V, Politano L Abstract Mutations in the LMNA gene are associated with a wide spectrum of disease phenotypes, ranging from neuromuscular, cardiac and metabolic disorders to premature aging syndromes. Skeletal muscle involvement may present with different phenotypes: limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 1B or LMNA-related dystrophy; autosomal dominant Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy; and a congenital form of muscular dystrophy, frequently associated with early onset of arrhythmias. Heart involvement m...

We report a patient presenting severe elbow contractures and a rigid-spine since his early childhood without any evident muscle weakness, who was diagnosed with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy later in life. This case is interesting since there has been no report, to date, of patients with a phenotype resembling facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy also in association with early and prominent elbow contractures and spinal rigidity, since childhood, resembling Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy. Our case further confirmed the phenotypic variability often observed in carriers of D4Z4 reduce allele, and highlights the...

In this study we report a rare variant (p.Arg148Trp, rs752485547) in LAMA2 gene causing a mild form of Merosin-deficient CMD in a Sudanese family. The family consisted of two patients diagnosed clinically with congenital muscular dystrophy since childhood and five healthy siblings born to consanguineous parents. Whole exome sequencing was performed for the two patients and a healthy sibling. A rare missense variant (p.Arg148Trp, rs752485547) in LAMA2 gene was discovered and verified using Sanger sequencing. The segregation pattern was consistent with autosomal recessive inheritance. The pathogenicity of this variant was pr...

This report further confirms that STM and LGMD2H represent the same disorder and suggests to consider TRIM32 mutations in the genetic diagnosis of Sarcotubular Myopathy and Myofibrillar Myopathy. PMID: 31309175 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Palladino A, Papa AA, Morra S, Russo V, Ergoli M, Rago A, Orsini C, Nigro G, Politano L Abstract Cardiomyopathy associated with dystrophinopathies - Duchenne muscular Dystrophy (DMD), Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD), X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy (XL-CM) and cardiomyopathy of Duchenne/Becker (DMD/BMD carriers - is an almost constant manifestation of these neuromuscular disorders and contribute signi´Čücantly to their morbidity and mortality. Dystrophinopathic cardiomyopathy is the result of the dystrophin protein deficiency at the myocardium level, parallel to that occurring at the skeletal muscle level....
