This study analyzed whether environmental enrichment (EE) modulates the nociceptive and inflammatory responses in the mouse model of arthritis induced by Complete Freund's Adjuvant (CFA). Ninety male mice (C57BL/6-JUnib, 4-weeks-old; 20-25 g) were distributed into EE and standard (SE) groups. For EE, mice were kept in bigger cages using an alternation of materials to chew (wood and paper), for nesting (cotton), to use as hiding places (plastic tunnels), and for voluntary exercise (wheel running). Arthritis was induced by an injection of CFA (50 μL) into the right hind paw or saline solution in the control group. Separat...

DISCUSSION: Because this patient was referred to a palliative care team for the purpose of relieving pain caused by skin symptoms associated with chemotherapy, a crucial point is the symptoms were treated as side effects of the chemotherapy from the beginning. As neuropathy can occur as a result of chemotherapy, the pain and muscle weakness could be explained at the time; however, the symptoms continued to worsen even after the chemotherapy was stopped. Because the symptoms were not typical of polymyositis/dermatomyositis, diagnosis of the patient was delayed, even though he was treated in each specialized department. Our ...

Yoo Yoon Kim Septic ankle arthritis is a devastating clinical entity with high risks of morbidity and mortality. Prompt treatment is necessary because delayed or inadequate treatment can lead to irreversible damage that may occur on the articular surface, resulting in cartilage erosion, infective synovitis, osteomyelitis, joint deformity, and pain and joint dysfunction. An aggressive surgical approach is required when a joint infection causes severe limb-threatening arthritis. A 58-year-old woman visited our clinic with increasing pain in the right ankle, which had been present for the previous 2 months. She ...
