Authors: Ferrucci S, Tavecchio S, Berti E, Angileri L Abstract Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common chronic multifactorial dermatosis that can occurs through different clinical phenotypes although all undergone identical pathogenetic mechanisms such as the Prurigo Nodularis (PN)-like phenotype. Here, we described eleven patients with PN-like atopic dermatitis treated with dupilumab, a human monoclonal IgG4 antibody that inhibits interleukine-4 (IL-4) and interleukine-13 (IL-13). Efficacy outcomes were performed at baseline, at first and fourth months from starting treatment. We collected different scores such as NRSi...

The current study aimed to investigate the longitudinal associations between the quality of parent–child interactions in toddlerhood and sleep duration and quality at early school age. The sample consisted of 88 families...

ConclusionsThese studies demonstrate child sleep problems are associated with poorer parent mental health and higher parenting stress.ImplicationsFuture longitudinal research including multiple measurements of child sleep problems and family functioning is required to clarify the directionality of associations. Such knowledge is key in adapting sleep interventions to better meet the needs of children with ADHD or ASD and their families.

We describe the time course of bone formation marker (P1NP) decline in men exposed to ~  3 weeks of sleep restriction with concurrent circadian disruption. P1NP declined within 10 days and remained lower with ongoing exposure. These data suggest even brief exposure to sleep and circadian disruptions may disrupt bone metabolism.IntroductionA serum bone formation marker (procollagen type 1 N-terminal, P1NP) was lower after ~  3 weeks of sleep restriction combined with circadian disruption. We now describe the time course of decline.MethodsThe ~  3-week protocol included two segments: &ldqu...

Health related quality of life (HRQOL) is a relatively new concept in pediatrics, but it has shown to be extremely important in terms of clinical care, treatment planning, and compliance with medical and behavioral recommendations. Two groups of children who are at risk for impairments in HRQOL are those who have bedwetting and those who snore or have sleep apnea. However, the current study sought to determine whether the combination of monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis (MNE) and sleep disordered breathing (SDB) results in diminished HRQOL in a pediatric sample.

a Richter In western societies, about one in six employees works in shifts. Shiftwork is associated with a number of poor somatic and psychological health outcomes, especially sleep issues. Higher rates of absenteeism and accidents in the workplace are possible consequences. Still, prevention programs and treatment options that are specifically tailored to shift-workers’ needs are rare. We devised a 4-week online cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) intervention (n = 21) and compared sleep outcomes to a face-to-face outpatient treatment for shift-workers (n = 12) using a sleep diary and the Epwor...

This study evaluates whether patient education and individually self ‐care reduces pain and improves QoL, mood and sleep during and after radiotherapy treatment for patients with head and neck cancer.DesignA longitudinal, two ‐armed feasibility study design was performed.MethodsSixty ‐four participants with curative intent were included in the study. All participants answered questions about pain three times a week and completed a survey questionnaire about pain, QoL, psychological aspects and barriers towards pain management at baseline, at 4 weeks and at 10 weeks. Thirty‐ four of the participants attend...

SummaryAccelerometry is a low ‐cost and noninvasive method that has been used to discriminate sleep from wake, however, its utility to detect sleep stages is unclear. We detail the development and comparison of methods which utilise raw, triaxial accelerometry data to classify varying stages of sleep, ranging from sleep/wake d etection to discriminating rapid eye movement sleep, stage one sleep, stage two sleep, deep sleep and wake. First‐ and second‐order hidden Markov models (HMMs) with time‐homogeneous and time‐varying transition probability matrices, along with continuous acceleration observations in the form...
