Psychosocial impact of sport activity in neuromuscular disorders

AbstractPrevious studies demonstrated the benefits of motor exercise and physical activity in neuromuscular disorders. However, very few papers assessed the effects of sport practise. The aim of this multicentre study was to assess the impact of sport activity on self-esteem and emotional regulation in a cohort of athletes with neuromuscular disorders. The 38 patients with Duchenne, Becker or other types of muscular dystrophy or spinal muscular atrophy practising sport (aged 13 –49 years) and 39 age-, gender-, disability- and disease-matched patients not practising sport were enrolled. Testing procedures to assess self-esteem, anxiety and depression disorder, personality trait and quality of life (QoL) were used. Patients practising sport had a significantly higher self -esteem, lower level of depression, greater social own identity and adherence and QoL. Frequency of sport activity may represent a complementary therapy in neuromuscular disorders to improve mental and social well-being.

miR‑205 suppresses cell migration, invasion and EMT of colon cancer by targeting mouse double minute 4. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 18;: Authors: Fan Y, Wang K Abstract Colon cancer is one of the most frequent malignant tumors, and microRNA (miR)‑205 is involved in the tumor progression. The present study aimed to explore the effects of miR‑205 on human colon cancer and its targeting mechanism. The levels of miR‑205 and mouse double minute 4 (MDM4) were determined via reverse transcription‑quantitative (RT‑q)PCR and western blot analysis. A luciferase activity assay was performed t...

Conclusions: 60% of patients with MDD and/or AAD had at least one additional NCCD, which significantly increased the economic and humanistic burden. These findings are important for payers and clinicians in making treatment decisions. These results underscore the need for development of multi-pronged interventions which aim to improve quality of life and reduce activity limitations among patients with mental health disorders and NCCDs.
