Publication date: Available online 9 December 2019Source: Social Science &MedicineAuthor(s): Maddalena Canna, Rebecca SeligmanAbstractFunctional Neurological Disorder (FND), otherwise known as Conversion Disorder, is characterized by abnormal sensory or motor symptoms that are determined to be “incompatible” with neurological disease. FND patients are a challenge for contemporary medicine. They experience high levels of distress, disability, and social isolation, yet a large proportion of those treated do not get better. Patients with FNDs are often misdiagnosed and suffer from stigma, dysfunctional medical...

The objective of this study was to evaluate if a single session of real or placebo cupping therapy in patients with chronic low back pain would be enough to temporarily reduce pain intensity and functional disability, enhancing their mechanical threshold and reducing local skin temperature. The outcome measures pain intensity using Brief Pain Inventory, pressure pain threshold, disability using the Roland Morris disability questionnaire, and low back skin temperature were assessed. This is an experimental clinical trial; after examination (AV0), patients were submitted to real or placebo cupping therapy (15 minutes, b...

Stem cell-based therapy is promising some valuable strategies for the structural and functional recovery after ischemic insult. The inhibition of phosphodiesterases (PDEs) has wide spectrum neuroprotective properties by stimulating proliferation of neural stem cells (NSCs). However, the potential role of PDE9 on NSCs proliferation after cerebral ischemia is ...

DiscussionWe expect that psychosomatic therapy in primary care for patients who frequently attend the GP for MUS will improve symptoms and daily functioning and disability, while reducing consultation frequency and referrals to secondary care. We expect that the psychosomatic therapy provides value for money for patients with MUS.Trial registrationNetherlands Trial Register, ID:NL7157 (NTR7356). Registered 13 July 2018.

AbstractDepression, plus the accompanying memory impairment, is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. Thus, there is a critical need to develop new drugs based on distinct strategies. FG-4592, an inhibitor of prolyl hydroxylase, activates the hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) pathway, to produce multiple effects on cell properties. Here, we examined whether FG-4592 has antidepressant effects, using a chronic unpredictable mild stress (CUMS) procedure to establish rodent depression models. We found that FG-4592 not only reversed depressive behaviors but also improved CUMS-induced memory impairment. Mechanistic...

This patient was working on his truck in a garage without ventilation and the vehicle was running. He felt dizzy and lost consciousness. The next thing he remembers is waking up in the ambulance. He was last seen normal at 09:00 AM and was found down at 10:30 AM. He denied chest pain, abdominal pain, SOB or any other symptoms, though he did endorse chest pressure when asked specifically.He underwent a routine ECG prior to hyperbaric therapy for CO poisoning:Obvious Massive STEMI, Proximal LAD OcclusionHis CO level returned at 34%.Further h/o revealed that he had had a proximal LAD stent placed for a Non-Occlusion MI more t...

Authors: Li S, Ou Y, Li C, Wei W, Lei L, Zhang Q Abstract Acute spinal cord injury (SCI) has a high rate of disability and mortality. Although secondary SCI results in local tissue hypoxia and the release of inflammatory mediators, it is both controllable and reversible. Therefore, timely rehabilitation treatment is beneficial for the partial recovery of patients with SCI. The present study aimed to investigate the use of methylprednisolone combined with high-frequency electrotherapy as a method of rehabilitation treatment in rats with SCI. The rat SCI model was prepared using the modified Allen's method with the a...
