Authors: Krajewska-Włodarczyk M, Owczarczyk-Saczonek A, Placek W Abstract Introduction: Fatigue is an important and underrated symptom of many chronic diseases. Aim: The evaluation of incidence and severity of fatigue as well as the influence of selected factors on fatigue in patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Material and methods: The study included 60 patients with PsA, 58 patients with psoriasis and 61 persons in the control group aged 35-70 years. Assessment of fatigue was conducted using a fatigue subscale from the FACIT-F questionnaire. Severity of skin lesions and arthritis was d...

Conclusions: 60% of patients with MDD and/or AAD had at least one additional NCCD, which significantly increased the economic and humanistic burden. These findings are important for payers and clinicians in making treatment decisions. These results underscore the need for development of multi-pronged interventions which aim to improve quality of life and reduce activity limitations among patients with mental health disorders and NCCDs.

Jeffrey A. SingerPublic health interventions entail non ‐​economic as well as economic trade‐​offs. Some trade ‐​offs can involve other aspects of public health.I havewrittenabout how blanket bans on elective medical procedures combine with the fear already infused in the public to cause crucial delays in necessary health care. This adds to human suffering from causes other than the COVID-19 virus. Many people with chronic conditions, particularlychronic pain patients, are disproportionately affected by reduced access to routine care. Then there ’s the dramatic drop ‐...

The objective of this work was to evaluate the anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities of the ethyl ester of arachic acid, a compound isolated from Cameroonian propolis. The ethyl ester of arachic acid was isolated by chromatography of the ethanolic extract of propolis harvested at Tala-Mokolo (Far North Region of Cameroon) and identified by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra and the 1H-1H correlated spectroscopy. The anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of oral administration of arachic acid ethyl ester (12.5, 25.0, and 50.0 mg/kg bw) were evaluated using carrageenan-induced paw edema, xylene-induced...

CONCLUSION: On the basis of a broadly based research and participatory development process, a set of indicators has been developed that enables comprehensive evaluation of the regional quality of care of cross-indication, integrated care models focusing on common diseases. In order to be able to increasingly evaluate aspects of care coordination and patient orientation, health promotion as well as nursing, palliative and emergency care in the future, it would be helpful if routine data were collected or made accessible in these areas as well.

Environmental optimization of both the home and the veterinary clinic not only is important for promoting good emotional and cognitive health for domestic cats but also contributes to the promotion of good physical health. All 3 aspects of the feline health triad are interconnected. Inappropriate learning can occur resulting in perpetuation of behavioral responses and confirmation of emotional associations. In addition, the physiologic responses to compromised emotions and sustained negative emotional motivation can be involved in the triggering, maintenance, and increased significance of a range of physical health issues,...

AbstractOxaliplatin (OXA) is a commonly used platinum-based chemotherapy drug for colorectal cancer. OXA-induced peripheral neurotoxcity (OIPN) is a comprehensive adverse reaction of OXA. OIPN can be divided into acute and chronic types according to clinical features and different mechanisms. The main clinical features of acute OIPN are cold-sensitive sensory symptoms and neuropathic pain in limbs. In addition to the above symptoms, chronic OIPN also produces autonomic nerve dysfunction. The most important mechanism involved in acute OIPN is the alteration of voltage-gated Na  + channels, and nuclear DNA dama...
