Chromium (III) and chromium (VI) as important players in the induction of genotoxicity - current view
CONCLUSIONS: Due to the still unexplained mechanism of the genotoxic action and incomplete knowledge about the transformation of chromium in the body, further research is needed, especially due to the growing popularity of Cr (III) compounds and their consumption in the form of dietary supplements and doubts as to the safety of its use, as well as environmental exposure to Cr (VI).PMID:33775062 | DOI:10.26444/aaem/118228 (Source: Annals of Agricultural and Environmental Medicine : AAEM)

Cancer prevention - review paper
CONCLUSIONS: Due to the systematic increase in the incidence of cancer, a strong emphasis should be placed on prevention. Preventive actions bring benefits not only to the individual, but are an important aspect of health policy. The importance of primary prevention in relation to healthy people has been demonstrated, including secondary prevention aimed at controlling risk factors in relation to persons exposed to them. The combination of these activities becomes an important element in maintaining the health of the individual, as well as society.PMID:33775063 | DOI:10.26444/aaem/116906 (Source: Annals of Agricultural and...

Hiatal hernia as a rare cause of cardiac complications - case based review of the literature
CONCLUSIONS: Hiatal hernia should be considered as a possible cause of arrhythmia and changes in ST-T pattern, particularly if symptoms occurred after a meal. Differential diagnosis of the posterior mediastinal mass or intracardiac mass should include hiatal hernia. Gastrothorax is a rare condition associated with hiatal hernia which may lead to cardiac arrest. However, even timely recognition and therapy of gastrothorax does not ensure a positive clinical outcome.PMID:33775064 | DOI:10.26444/aaem/133583 (Source: Annals of Agricultural and Environmental Medicine : AAEM)

Altered squat movement pattern in patients with chronic low back pain
CONCLUSIONS: The findings support the hypothesis that the strategy of movement is different in subjects with and without back pain. They may suggest that subjects with low back pain in maximal squat use the hip joint and knee joint to a greater extent than subjects without back pain, with comparable ankle dorsiflexion. Clinicians should take into consideration the influence of ankle motion and timing on exercise biomechanics in persons suffering from low back pain.PMID:33775082 | DOI:10.26444/aaem/117708 (Source: Annals of Agricultural and Environmental Medicine : AAEM)

It is caused by various pathologies in the area of the motor unit of the spine. These changes can cause pressure on the nerve structures within the spinal canal, resulting in various ailments. Pain is the most common symptom. In most cases, patients are qualified for conservative management. In the case of neurological deficits, the patient is qualified for spinal surgery. Unfortunately, surgical treatment is not always 100% effective therapy method. Moreover, many e...

Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine - safety profile of potential COVID-19 drugs from the rheumatologist's perspective
CONCLUSIONS: Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine at lower doses, as used in rheumatic diseases, prove to be relatively safe. Data from the literature show that high dosage as recommended in COVID-19 treatment may pose a risk of toxicity and require precise management, but prophylactic, long-term use of lower, safe doses might be a promising solution.PMID:33775077 | DOI:10.26444/aaem/127766 (Source: Annals of Agricultural and Environmental Medicine : AAEM)

Intestinal parasitic infections in a population of  BaAka Pygmies inhabiting the Congo Basin in the Central African Republic
CONCLUSIONS: Poor sanitation, limited the high prevalence of intestinal parasitic infections in the community of Pygmies. The negative test results may prove the effectiveness of periodic deworming campaigns chich, implemented by non-governmental organizations, are voluntary with respect to the informed consent principle.PMID:33775078 | DOI:10.26444/aaem/131648 (Source: Annals of Agricultural and Environmental Medicine : AAEM)

Lag effects of size-fractionated particulate matter pollution on outpatient visits for respiratory diseases in Lanzhou, China
CONCLUSIONS: Increased atmospheric PM concentration is associated with an increase in outpatient visits for RESD, and it has a lag effect. The increase in outpatient visits for RESD appears to be driven by increased PM2.5 concentrations. The results obtained may provide reference values for formulating preventive strategies to protect the population from the adverse impact of PM pollution.PMID:33775079 | DOI:10.26444/aaem/132179 (Source: Annals of Agricultural and Environmental Medicine : AAEM)

Altered squat movement pattern in patients with chronic low back pain
CONCLUSIONS: The findings support the hypothesis that the strategy of movement is different in subjects with and without back pain. They may suggest that subjects with low back pain in maximal squat use the hip joint and knee joint to a greater extent than subjects without back pain, with comparable ankle dorsiflexion. Clinicians should take into consideration the influence of ankle motion and timing on exercise biomechanics in persons suffering from low back pain.PMID:33775082 | DOI:10.26444/aaem/117708 (Source: Annals of Agricultural and Environmental Medicine : AAEM)

Neurodevelopmental outcome and early rehabilitation of premature babies - is it needed in the first 2 years of life?
CONCLUSIONS: Correct neurodevelopmental outcome at the age of 2 reached two-thirds of extreme prematurities, most of which did not need rehabilitation during this period. According to the authors' knowledge, this is the first study to show the percentage of premature babies who in the first 2 years of life did not require rehabilitation and achieved normal development.PMID:33775084 | DOI:10.26444/aaem/122048 (Source: Annals of Agricultural and Environmental Medicine : AAEM)
