Authors: Shen CC, Lei KT, Jiang JF, Miao D, Xiong JW Abstract The withdrawal reflex is a defensive reaction to nociceptive stimuli and can be used to regulate locomotor gait during rehabilitation. We investigated the effect of successive needle-pricking of the plantar and dorsal foot surfaces on poststroke lower limb function. Thirty-five hemiplegic patients, within one month after primary stroke, with an affected lower limb (Brunnstrom stage III) were randomly divided into intervention and control groups. Both groups received routine drug treatment, rehabilitation training, and upper limb acupuncture treatment on ...

Abstract Ankle arthrodesis continues to be the golden standard in the treatment of end-stage ankle arthritis. Meticulous soft tissue handling, correct positioning of the foot, and stable fixation are crucial for obtaining a favorable result. With current techniques, mostly internal fixation with screws or plates, union rates between 87 and 100% are reported. Adjacent joint arthritis remains a concern in long-term follow-up, but does not always become symptomatic. It is pre-existing in a substantial number of cases and associated with fusion in less than optimal position, particularly equinus. With arthroscopic art...

Neuropharmacologist who searched for new gateways for drugs to treat the brain and mindAfflictions of the mind and brain, from stroke to schizophrenia, remain among the most challenging to treat, even after more than half a century of discoveries about the brain ’s biochemistry and how it responds to drugs. The neuropharmacologist Leslie Iversen, who has died aged 82, devoted his career to making sense of the interplay of signalling molecules in the nervous system that might provide sites where drugs could act.After directing laboratories in both the public sector and the pharmaceutical industry, in his later years I...

In conclusion, the present study demonstrated that TIGIT is a prominent negative immune regulator involved in immunosenescence. This novel finding is highly significant, as targeting TIGIT might be an effective strategy to improve the immune response and decrease age-related comorbidities. Delivery of Extracellular Vesicles as a Potential Basis for Therapies Here I'll point out a readable open access review paper on the potential use of extracellular vesicles as a basis for therapy: harveste...

BOSTON (CBS) – Last week WBZ reported on a new innovative building at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. That building opened its doors to patients Monday for the first time and Dr. Mallika Marshall was there to speak to one of those patients and his surgeons who helped make the building a reality. Plymouth’s George Svajian will never forget that one high school football game more than 50 years ago that destroyed his knee. “I went running down the sideline and as soon as put my leg down, the defensive back hit me right here and my knee felt like it went out,” recalls George. After years of cripplin...

Thalidomide and its close analogs (lenalidomide and pomalidomide) are widely used to treat a variety of diseases, such as multiple myeloma and other cancers as well as the symptoms of several inflammatory disorders. However, thalidomide is known for its teratogenic adverse effects when first clinically introduced in the 1950s, and is associated with drowsiness and peripheral neuropathy. Hence, there is intense interest to synthesize, identify and develop safer analogs.Researchers at the National Institute on Aging’s Drug Design and Development Section synthesized novel thalidomide analogs that demonstrate clinical po...
