Abstract Background: Current therapeutic modalities for fibromyalgia (FM) do not provide satisfactory results and new approaches have to be explored. Objectives: To assess efficacy and safety of adding a phytotherapy treatment (Fib-19-01) to the current therapeutic regimen in patients with FM. Methods: Double-blind controlled trial: women with active FM (Fibromyalgia Index Questionnaire FIQ> 40) were randomised to receive Fib-19-01 or a food supplement (FS) undistinguishable from Fib-19-01 or no supplementary treatment (NoST). All continued the conventional therapy throughout the 6 month follow-up. Pr...

Authors: Liu Y, Gao L, Lv W, Lın L, Wang Y, Fıang F, Feng F Abstract Background/aim: To prepare a porcine model of obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) and observe the pathological and hemodynamic changes in the common carotid artery. Materials and methods: Twelve male miniature pigs were randomly divided into the model and control group (n = 6). Pigs in the model group were kept in an air-flow negative pressure chamber at 0.96 ± 0.01 kPa, and the air oxygen content, temperature, and humidity were kept at normal culture conditions in both groups. After pigs in the model group presented sym...
CONCLUSION: Automated acoustic methods can help diagnose sleep-disordered breathing. A reason for the restricted recognition performance is the limited size of the training datasets. PMID: 31190193 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The objective severity of OSA and the associated subjective daytime sleepiness was reduced in both groups. There was no difference in terms of clinical outcome or compliance between the gradual or intensive SPT therapy in POSA patients during the observation period. Both training modalities are highly successful and well tolerated. PMID: 31190192 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
