Physical activity correlates across the lifespan in people with epilepsy: a systematic review.

Conclusions: The current review found that quantitative research about PA barriers and facilitators in people with epilepsy is still in its infancy, but PA participation is associated with a range of biological, social, and psychological factors which should be considered in rehabilitation programs. Implications for rehabilitation Many people living with epilepsy do not engage in physical activity on a regular basis. Children with epilepsy who are member of a sports club are more physically active. Depression, anxiety, and perceived stigma are important barriers for being active in adults with epilepsy. Side-effects of antiepilepstic drugs are a barrier for being active in adults with epilepsy. PMID: 31536383 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Despite differences between adults with SCI and adults with CVD in several demographic and health-related measures, the overall similarity in PARs for SCI and CVD suggests potential benefits from using effective CVD interventions to address SCI. PMID: 31835014 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: The 2014 federal rescheduling of hydrocodone was associated with only minor changes in overall and potentially high-risk opioid-prescribing rates. Neither state variation in long-term prescribing nor beneficiary characteristics explained the changes in persistently high opioid-prescribing rates among adults with disabilities after the 2014 regulation. Future studies should examine patient and provider characteristics underlying the persistent high-risk prescribing patterns in this population. PMID: 31835012 [PubMed - in process]

Chetty, Suresh ChallaAbstractEnvironmental pollutant, Lead (Pb) is known to induce neurotoxicity in human. The central nervous system is the most vulnerable to the minute levels of Pb induced toxicity. Pb has been linked to Alzheimer's disease (AD) as a probable risk factor, as it shows epigenetic and developmental link associated with Alzheimer's disease-like pathology. Beta amyloid peptides were considered as the crucial factors i...

Authors: Peng C, Zhou C, Zhu K, Zhang H, Tu Q, Ma X, Liu L Abstract PURPOSE: Lumbar posterior edge separation is a common disorder with lumbar disc herniation (LDH) in adolescents. Over the years, there has been a lack of an acknowledged assessment and plan. The purpose of this study was to elucidate the feasibility of all sufferers who have received percutaneous full endoscopic treatment for lumbar posterior edge separation in adolescents. METHODS: Case series of sufferers with lumbar posterior edge separation who underwent surgery in the Affiliated Hospital Qingdao University between February 2017 and Decembe...

In conclusion, the findings reported in this thesis underline that SD in childhood and adolescence is a significant condition calling for attention, due to the early onset, the risk for progression into MDD and the poor outcome. Indicated prevention aimed at MDD in childhood should target SD children who are characterised by fewer depressive symptoms but the same symptom pattern, the same level of impairment, and the same amount of comorbid anxiety and conduct/oppositional disorders, as presented by children with MDD. Selective preventive interventions could effectively target children who suffer from chronic physical illn...

Conclusion The researchers conclude that although the pregnant women reported memory problems, these did not show up on their tests. However, this does not take into account their pre-pregnancy ability. The women may have performed better before they got pregnant, which is why they are now reporting memory problems. None of these women were tested before they got pregnant, which is the major limitation of the study. The researchers say that because there were a similar number of students in each group, the women in the control group was a good enough representation of how the pregnant women would have performed pre-pregna...
