Do kinematic parameters of gait discriminate fallers and non-fallers in Parkinson's disease?

Discussion/conclusionFallers distinguished from non-fallers by disease duration and motor impairment but adding gait measurement improves the accuracy of the clinical data. Further research should concentrate to validate these models in prospective cohorts.

Most often, such therapy is used the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases caused by the activity of pathogenic or conditionally pathogenic microorganisms, however, recently an increasing number of studies have reported the use of fecal microbiota transplantation for the treatment of diseases such as metabolic syndrome, diabe...

The J.P. Morgan Healthcare conference runs every year in San Francisco, a big draw for the biotech industry, and many organizations take the opportunity to host events at the same time. Among these, the SENS Research Foundation has for the past few years hosted a pitch day in which biotech companies in the longevity industry, largely startups, present to that portion of the Bay Area investor community interested in funding the treatment of aging as a medical condition. I was there to present on progress at Repair Biotechnologies, and took some notes on the other companies as they talked about their work. Kimera Labs ...

jamin Parkinson We aimed to describe the epidemiology, multi-drug resistance and seasonal distribution of bacteria cultured within 12 months following lower limb orthopaedic surgery in tropical and subtropical Australian hospitals between 2010 and 2017. We collected data from four tropical and two subtropical hospitals. Categorical variables were examined using the Pearson Chi-squared test or Fisher’s Exact test, and continuous variables with the Student t-test or Mann–Whitney U test. A Poisson regression model was used to examine the relationship between season, weather and the incidence of Staphyl...

The barrier between mind and body appears to be crumbling. Clinical practice and public perception need to catch upUnlikely as it may seem, #inflammation has become a hashtag. It seems to be everywhere suddenly, up to all sorts of tricks. Rather than simply being on our side, fighting infections and healing wounds, it turns out to have a dark side as well: the role it plays in causing us harm.It ’s now clear that inflammation is part of the problem in many, if not all, diseases of the body. And targeting immune or inflammatory causes of disease has led to a series of breakthroughs, from new treatments for rheumatoid ...

Corticobasal degeneration (CBD) has no available treatment to slow disease progression and generally resists drug therapy. Corticobasal degeneration has symptoms and decreased quality of life similar to Parkinson disease. Adapted Tango, a successful rehabilitation for Parkinson, may address CBD. A 63-yr-old African American man with CBD (alias: YD; CBD duration = 2 yrs) was evaluated for motor, cognitive, and psychosocial function before, immediately after, 1 mo after, and 6 mos after 12 wks of 20, biweekly 90-min adapted-tango lessons. After intervention, disease-related motor symptoms improved and YD reported fewer probl...

ConclusionBerberine could impede the development of dementia via multiple mechanisms: preventing brain damages and enhancing cognition directly in the brain, and indirectly through alleviating risk factors such as metabolic dysfunction, and cardiovascular, kidney and liver diseases. This study provided evidence to support the value of berberine in the prevention of dementia associated with MetS.
