Immunogenicity induced by botulinum toxin injections for limb spasticity: a systematic review
Conclusions. NAB prevalence is much lower after BoNT treatment for limb spasticity than cervical dystonia. Consensual criteria must be defined to diagnose non-response to BoNT injection. Because immunogenicity is not the most common cause of non-response to BoNT injection, NABs should be sought in individuals with SnR with no other cause explaining the treatment inefficacy. A test with 100% specificity is recommended. In cases for which immunogenicity is the most likely cause of non-response to BoNT injections, some biological arguments suggest trying another BoNT, but no clinical evidence supports this strategy.

Reliability of single-day walking performance and physical activity measures using inertial sensors in children with cerebral palsy
Conclusions. Our IMU and algorithm setup appears to be a reliable tool to measure daily life gait parameters in children with CP when repeatedly measured on 2 school days. PA was also reliably assessed but when measuring the same school day some weeks apart. However, the high MDC95 values question whether the setup can be used as a responsive outcome measure of interventions. (Source: Annals of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine)

Sensitivity to change and minimal clinically important difference of the Locomotor Capabilities Index-5 in people with lower limb amputation undergoing prosthetic training
Conclusions: The LCI-5 showed a high ability to detect change over time (responsiveness). The 2 proposed values (MCID of 7 points and large improvement of 12 points), based on a mix of distribution- and anchor-based approaches, represent cutoffs that can accurately identify 2 different levels of true change (as perceived by the patient) in locomotor capability after prosthetic training.

A clinical screening tool for objective and subjective cognitive disorders in multiple sclerosis
Conclusion. Considering the possible multifactorial character of cognitive dysfunction in MS, it is essential to ask patients about their experiences and to take into account cognitive complaints in the follow-up of patients.

Transcranial direct current stimulation in post-stroke aphasia rehabilitation: a systematic review
ConclusionEvidence from published peer reviewed literature is effective for post stroke aphasia rehabilitation at the chronic stages. tDCS devices are easy to use, safe and inexpensive. They can be used in routine clinical practice by speech therapists for aphasia rehabilitation. However, further studies should investigate the effectiveness in the sub-acute post-stroke phase and determine the effect of the lesion for precisely identifying the targeted brain areas. We discuss crucial challenges for future studies. (Source: Annals of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine)
