Intervertebral disc ageing and degeneration: the antiapoptotic effect of oestrogen.

Intervertebral disc ageing and degeneration: the antiapoptotic effect of oestrogen. Ageing Res Rev. 2019 Oct 24;:100978 Authors: Yang S, Zhang F, Ma J, Ding W Abstract As an important part of the spinal column, the intervertebral disc (IVD) plays an important role in the intervertebral juncture and spinal movement in general. IVD degeneration (IVDD), which mimics disc ageing but at an accelerated rate, is a common and chronic process that results in severe spinal symptoms, such as lower back pain. It is generally assumed that lower back pain caused by IVDD can also develop secondary conditions, including spinal canal stenosis, spinal segmental instability, osteophyte formation, disc herniation and spinal cord and nerve root compression. Over the past few years, many researchers around the world have widely studied the relevance between oestrogen and IVDD, indicating that oestrogen can effectively alleviate IVDD development by inhibiting the apoptosis of IVD cells. Oestrogen can decrease IVD cell apoptosis in multiple ways, including the inhibition of the inflammatory cytokines IL-1β and TNF-α, reducing catabolism because of inhibition of matrix metalloproteinases, upregulating integrin α2β1 and IVD anabolism, activating the PI3K/Akt pathway, decreasing oxidative damage and promoting autophagy. In this article, we perform an overview of the literature regarding the antiapoptotic effect of oestrogen in IVDD. PMID: 31669486 [PubMe...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe purpose of this narrative review is to inform readers of the particular impact opioids have had on midlife women and to provide perspective on non-opioid treatment options for women with chronic low back pain.Recent FindingsResearch has shown that midlife women experience more chronic low back pain than men and other age groups of women. As a result, opioids have been particularly deleterious in this demographic group. In addition, there are no data to recommend them for long-term use, while there is a breadth of data on the negative consequences of long-term opioid use. Treatment guidelines no...

Conclusion: Insomnia was associated with disability in men, whereas aging and pain severity were associated with disability in women. Catastrophic thinking was not associated with disability in both sexes. PMID: 32454923 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: The ODI appears to be a similarly unidimensional and internally consistent questionnaire in both genders without any substantial variability in the items' difficulty and discrimination. CLINICAL REHABILITATION IMPACT: The ODI produces psychometrically similar results in both genders. Small and clinically hardly significant gender-related differences in the properties of ODI can be neglected. PMID: 32452663 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
