ConclusionWhile these practices were implemented because of sound biologic plausibility or encouraging observational data, well-done RCTs have failed to show evidence of effectiveness. These examples raise caution in introducing new clinical interventions into widespread clinical practice without sufficient high quality evidence demonstrating efficacy.

Here we aimed to study the anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive role of sulforaphane on sciatic nerve endometriosis. The sciatic nerve endometriosis rat model was constructed by autologous implantation of uterine tissue. Sulforaphane was administered intraperitoneally at the dose of 5, 15, 30 and 60 mg/kg/day for 28 days. Behavioral testing was performed at day 7, 14, 21 and 28. At day 2...

In this study, olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) were cultured, chitosan (CS) was prepared, and the compatibility of CS and OECs was detected by MTT method. Animal model of chronic constrictive sciatic nerve injury (CCI) was made, OECs and OECs+CS were transplanted to the region surrounding the chronic sciatic nerve injury, and the difference between the two groups in the treatment of NPP was compared. The mechanical withdrawal threshold (MWT) and thermal withdrawal latency (TWL) were measured by using behavioral method. In situ hybridization and Western-blotting were used to detect the expression of P2X4R mRNA and protei...

Authors: De Vecchis R, Paccone A, Di Maio M Abstract BACKGROUND: The MacNew questionnaire in its original version is a diagnostic tool which consists of a number of questions answered on a seven-point scale. Among the multiple possible choices, each marked by a box, the examined patient will have to tick only one. In fact, more than one answer for each proposed question is not allowed, for the formulation of the final score. Global and subscale( physical, social and emotional subscales) scores are computed by dividing the sum of the scores achieved for each individual item by the number of items listed in the quest...

CONCLUSIONS: The assessment of mitral apparatus in acute phase of MI can be most useful to determine the change of the degree of MR long-term post MI. Although LV remodelling itself contributes to IMR, this influence is directly dependent on alterations in mitral geometry. PMID: 32083424 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Herold A Abstract Hemorrhoidal disease is one of the most common illnesses in industrialized nations. Up to 70% of adults suffer from the disease once in their lifetime. This underlines the necessity and importance of knowing about the differential diagnosis of hemorrhoids. One can differentiate between differential diagnoses of symptoms (bleeding, pain, itching, tumor) and differential diagnoses of the phenotype findings (anal prolapse, mucosal prolapse and rectal prolapse, skin tags, hypertrophied anal papillae, condylomata acuminata, anal fissure, perianal venous thrombosis, anal cancer). PMID: 3207...

In spite of attempts to classifying breast cancer according to its histological and molecular properties, it is almost considered as a dilemma in treatment. Nowadays, public and medical attentions have primary focused on foods with anti-cancer properties to alleviate the cancer problems. Flavonoid components such as Quercetin (Qu) as dietary substances with high attention of ordinary people might provide potentia...
