Authors: Tada M, Inui K, Okano T, Mamoto K, Koike T, Nakamura H Abstract The general disease activity of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is well controlled by disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs, but local inflammation often remains in a few small joints. Electroporation, making small pores in cell membranes, has proven useful for drug delivery. The safety of a combination therapy of methotrexate (MTX) and electroporation for local joint inflammation in RA was investigated in a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, exploratory study (UMIN000016606). The patients were randomly allocate...

The objective of this study was to examine the thiol–disulfide profile tests in patients suffering from burn injuries.MethodsThis case–control study comprised 48 patients with thermal burn injuries and 61 healthy individuals. Thiol–disulfide tests were conducted in both groups, and also, the changes of thiol–disulfide parameters were analyzed at zero time and on days 3, 7, 15, and 30 of the admission in patients with burn injuries.ResultsThe patients had significantly decreased native and total thiol levels and native thiol/total thiol ratios, and significantly increased disulfide/native thiol and d...

ConclusionThe objective parameters for the DSM II Colormeter, Cutometer and Dermascan high frequency ultrasound were all found to have moderate to strong ROC AUC values and combination of the Cutometer R0 and Dermascan scar thickness and intensity values can be used to create an objective global scar scale that can accurately differentiate patients with hypertrophic burn scarring from non-hypertrophic scars or normal skin.

Photo credit Nashwin Vaswani Dear Carol: My mom, 78, has some physical disabilities because of severe arthritis. Even so, she’s fully able to manage the two medications that she takes. She can also fix the simple meals that she enjoys and entertain herself with music, TV, and reading. She needs some assistance, but we’re skeptical of assisted living because her friend, also well able to take care of her immediate needs, got burned. This friend liked living in her apartment except that the facility mandated taking over her medications and that she attend a certain number of meals. Their rules made her angry and ...
