J Cell Mol Med. 2022 Jan 23. doi: 10.1111/jcmm.17185. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSmall molecule drug intervention for chondrocytes is a valuable method for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA). The 4-octyl itaconate (OI) is a cellular derivative of itaconate with sound cell permeability and transformation rate. We attempted to confirm the protective role of OI in chondrocytes and its regulatory mechanism. We used lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to induce chondrocyte inflammation injury. After the OI treatment, the secretion and mRNA expression of Il-6, Il-10, Mcp-1 and Tnf-α were detected by ELISA and qPCR. The protectiv...

Conclusion: Disc repositioning has shown to significantly decrease pain and TMJ-related symptoms. However, we found that there is a remarkable clinical and radiological discrepancy that must be taken into account.RESUMEN Introducci ón: El desplazamiento anterior del disco es el trastorno interno más frecuente de la ATM. Si evoluciona, puede provocar una disfunción articular progresiva. Se han descrito varias técnicas de reposicionamiento del disco, tanto abiertas como artroscópicas. Sin embargo, existe una falta de conse nso respecto a la eficacia de la cirugía abierta para reposic...

Pain increases with age, disproportionately affects women, and is a major contributor to decreased quality of life. Because pain is dynamic, trajectories are important to consider. Few studies have examined longitudinal trajectories of pain, by gender, in Mexico. We used data from 5 waves (over 2001–2018) of the Mexican Health and Aging Study, a nationally representative sample of Mexicans aged 50 years and older. Pain was categorized as self-reported frequent pain that makes it difficult to do usual activities. Latent class mixture models were used to create pain trajectories (n = 9824). The sample was majority fema...

Telehealth is a promising approach to support self-management with the potential to overcome geographical barriers. Understanding patient perspectives will identify practical challenges to delivering self-management strategies by telehealth. The aim of this study was to synthesize the perceptions of people with chronic musculoskeletal pain for engaging in interventions delivered using telehealth. We searched MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL, LILACS, and PsycINFO databases. We included qualitative studies that explored perceptions or experiences or attitudes of people with chronic musculoskeletal pain engaging with telehealth. We as...
