Background: Denosumab is a monoclonal RANKL antibody, which was originally introduced for the treatment of osteoporosis and bone metastases from solid tumors, but more recently has been used for treatment of giant cell tumor of bone (GCTB). In GCTB, denosumab has been used as a single agent in patients with inoperable tumors; it also has been used before surgery in some patients with the aim to downstage the tumor to facilitate a joint-preserving procedure (curettage) rather than a resection. However, few studies are available evaluating the benefits and risks of denosumab for the latter indication. Read More

Cryotherapy as prophylaxis against oral mucositis after high-dose melphalan and autologous stem cell transplantation for myeloma: a randomised, open-label, phase 3, non-inferiority trial.

Bone Marrow Transplant 2019 Feb 4. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Department of Oral Medicine and Pathology, Institute of Odontology, The Sahlgrenska Academy at Göteborg University, Göteborg, Sweden.

The conditioning therapy used in connection with haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) can induce painful oral mucositis, which has negative impacts on patient quality of life and survival, as well as on health-care costs. While cooling of the oral mucosa (cryotherapy) is regarded as standard prophylaxis against oral mucositis, the long duration of the treatment affects compliance owing to side effects. In this prospective, randomised trial, 94 patients (62 males/32 females; median age 59 years, range 34-69) with a diagnosis of myeloma who were undergoing autologous HSCT were randomised 1:1 to receive cryotherapy for 7 h (N = 46) or 2 h (N = 48).

Circulating soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1) after exercise-induced muscular damage: Does the use of whole-body cryostimulation influence its concentration in blood?

Cryobiology 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

University of Poitiers, Laboratoire Mobilité Vieillissement Exercice (MOVE)-EA6314, Faculty of Sport Sciences, Poitiers, France. Electronic address:

As soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1) was recently hypothesized to be a key player in the mechanisms involved in exercise-induced muscular damage (EIMD), we investigated its circulating concentration changes in athletes before and after EIMD with and without the use of whole-body cryostimulation (WBC; 3 min at -110 °C) at the exercise end and repeated once a day during 4 days. We previously characterized plasma specimens from 11 endurance athletes who performed twice (randomized crossover design) strenuous running leading to EIMD, followed by passive recovery or WBC. Muscle soreness and inflammatory response were observed in both cases but the use of WBC induced a significant reduction in these responses (PlosOne 2011; 6:e22748). Read More

Anti-secretogranin III therapy of oxygen-induced retinopathy with optimal safety.

Angiogenesis 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami School of Medicine, Miami, FL, USA.

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) with pathological retinal neovascularization is the most common cause of blindness in children. ROP is currently treated with laser therapy or cryotherapy, both of which may adversely affect the peripheral vision with limited efficacy. Owing to the susceptibility of the developing retina and vasculatures to pharmacological intervention, there is currently no approved drug therapy for ROP in preterm infants. Read More

[Lumbar facet joint disease : Classification, clinical diagnostics, and minimally invasive treatment].

Authors:
Florian Faber

Orthopade 2019 Jan;48(1):77-83

Orthopädische Universitätsklinik Regensburg, Asklepios Klinikum Bad Abbach, Universität Regensburg, 93077, Bad Abbach, Deutschland.

Background: The degeneration of the lumbar facet joint is a multi-factorial process that is closely linked to degeneration of the intervertebral discs and has been implicated as one of the causes of low-back pain of elderly patients in about 15 up to 40% of cases. Moreover, emerging data suggest that increased inflammatory features play an important role in the progression of lumbar facet joint disease and may serve as a link to the afferent pain nerve fibers.

Operative Techniques: Since the first description in 1975 of minimally invasive treatment of lumbar facet joint disease, different techniques have been developed and used with varying results. Read More
