This study investigated caregiver outcomes when a psychoeducation program for older people with dementia and caregivers is modified to extend practice in memory strategies. Moderation effects of increased memory strategy use were also explored. Fifty-six care dyads participated in the multicenter, randomized controlled trial comparing psychoeducation (active control) with psychoeducation and memory strategy practice (intervention). Primary outcome was memory strategy use; secondary outcome was caregiver emotional reactivity (burden, depression, and anxiety). Results showed memory strategy use significantly increased follow...

Authors: Mosso E, Bonetto S, Longobardi G, Abenavoli L, Ribaldone DG, Saracco GM, Pellicano R Abstract Dyspepsia is a disorder that refers mainly to central upper abdominal pain or discomfort. When a cause of this symptom is not identified the condition is termed functional dyspepsia (FD), that affects a large part of the general population. The relevance of FD is due to its high prevalence, but also to its chronic or intermittent course. This induces a significant burden for each national healthcare system. The pathogenesis of FD is complex and multifactorial, depending on cultural, environmental and biological fa...

Authors: Finucci A, Ditto MC, Parisi S, Borrelli R, Priora M, Realmuto C, Fusaro E Abstract Rheumatic manifestations are the most frequent extra-intestinal manifestations (EIMs) in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) patients, and they are responsible for a relevant reduction of quality of life. IBD is associated with a variety of musculoskeletal manifestations such as arthritis and non-inflammatory pain as well as with metabolic diseases, such as osteoporosis. Different imaging techniques (primarily ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging and X-rays) can help the clinician to correctly identify the nature of manifesta...

Conclusion: The delayed-onset mechanical allodynia in the infant nerve lesion was accompanied with parallel sympathetic sprouting in DRG. The late parallel expression of glial p75NTR injury may play an essential role in this process, which provides novel insight into the treatment of delayed adolescent neuropathic pain.

Abstract Viral hepatitis B is a global public health problem affecting nearly two billion subjects; 3.3% of whom are from the WHO (World Health Organization) Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMRO). It induces both acute and chronic hepatic disorders with subsequent liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in a considerable percentage of patients based on the age of exposure. In this review, hepatitis B virus (HBV) and HCC prevalence, distribution and prevalence of different genotypes, and male/female infection frequencies in relation to the vaccination status in the Mediterranean countries were reported. St...
