Conclusion: Moderate quality evidence suggests that OMTh is effective for CNCP patients. There was a significant association between visceral OMTh and reduced pain severity and disability. More robust, high-quality randomized controlled trials with larger sample sizes are required to further explore the effectiveness of the OMTh in the management of CNCP.

Conclusion: The axonal degeneration rate is faster in RRMS patients in the first years of the disease than in later years. In addition, axonal degeneration occurs independently of inflammatory activity. Axonal degeneration is correlated with disability progression, but not with inflammatory findings, such as clinical episodes and MRI activity.Eur Neurol

Propofol protects against oxygen/glucose deprivation‑induced cell injury via gap junction inhibition in astrocytes. Mol Med Rep. 2020 Jul 28;: Authors: Fan Y, Zhu S, Wang J, Zhao Y, Wang X Abstract Stroke is one of the leading causes of mortality and disability worldwide with limited clinical therapies available. The present study isolated primary astrocytes from the brains of rats and treated them with oxygen‑glucose deprivation and re‑oxygenation (OGD/R) to mimic hypoxia/reperfusion (H/R) injury in vitro to investigate stroke. It was revealed that propofol (2,6‑diisopropylphenol), an int...

Intranasal administration of Cytoglobin modifies human umbilical cord‑derived mesenchymal stem cells and improves hypoxic‑ischemia brain damage in neonatal rats by modulating p38 MAPK signaling‑mediated apoptosis. Mol Med Rep. 2020 Aug 19;: Authors: Yang H, Tian S, Xie L, Chen Y, Ma L Abstract Neonatal hypoxic‑ischemic brain damage (HIBD) is a common clinical syndrome in newborns. Hypothermia is the only approved therapy for the clinical treatment; however, the therapeutic window of hypothermia is confined to 6 h after birth and even then,>40% of the infants either die or survive with v...

This study investigated astrocyte activity in cerebral ischemia, and identified that ischemic brain injuries could trigger RIP-dependent astrocyte necroptosis. The depletion of NDRG2 was found to accelerate permanent middle cerebral artery occlusion-induced necroptosis in the brain tissue of Ndrg2-/- mice, indicating that NDRG2 may act as a neuroprotector during cerebral ischemic injury. The present study suggested that NDRG2 attenuated astrocytic cell death via the suppression of RIPK1. The pharmacological inhibition of astrocyte necroptosis by necrostatin-1 provided neuroprotection against ischemic brain injuries after N...
