An Ontario health advocacy group is calling for more action to protect children from the harmful impacts of climate change. The group says cases of asthma, heat stroke and Lyme disease could all be on the rise in the coming decades.
Abstract Recovery of motor function after stroke involves many biomarkers. This review attempts to identify the biomarker effects responsible for recovery of motor function following the use of Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) and discuss their implications for research and practice. From the studies reviewed, the biomarker effects identified include improved perfusion of motor areas and brain glucose metabolism; increased expression of proteins, namely, Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), and Growth-Associated Protein 43 (GAP-43); and decreased level of G...
CONCLUSION: Passive music therapy and its effects on the mental state of patients seem to improve the efficiency of the respiratory system. The results of this experimental study demonstrate that a complementary music therapy has beneficial effects on the treatment of asthma exacerbations in adults.

We report a case of cerebral intravascular sparganosis in an elderly patient with acute ischemic stroke who was diagnosed by retrieving sparganum during mechanical thrombectomy. Finally, the parasites were identified as Spirometra erinaceieuropaei using multiplex PCR and cox1 gene sequencing. PMID: 32615744 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Cecchetti F, Di Girolamo M, Ippolito DG, Baggi L Abstract After the static computer-guided implant surgery, borns the concept of "navigated implantology" (NI) that offers significant advantages in the treatment planning and help clinicians to perform successful implant rehabilitation. NI allows an optimal final location, to avoid the risk of damaging the noble anatomical structures near the site and allows the achievement of satisfactory aesthetics. The aim of this study is analyze three different systems: the RoboDent® system (Berlin, Germany, 2001), today not for sale, wa...

CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrated that CSR and CSS were not statistically different when determined with different predictive trials located within the recommended durations of 2-12 min. Nevertheless, CSR200-800 and CSS200-800 exhibited the best consistency with CSR200-400-800 and CSS200-400-800, respectively. PMID: 32614153 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
