Downregulation of the Vitamin D Receptor Regulated Gene Set in the Hippocampus After MDMA Treatment.

Front Pharmacol 2018 3;9:1373. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Department of Pharmacodynamics, Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary.

The active ingredient of ecstasy, ±3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), in addition to its initial reinforcing effects, induces selective and non-selective brain damage. Evidences suggest that the hippocampus (HC), a central region for cognition, may be especially vulnerable to impairments on the long-run, nevertheless, transcription factors that may precede and regulate such chronic changes remained uninvestigated in this region. In the current study, we used gene-set enrichment analysis (GSEA) to reveal possible transcription factor candidates responsible for enhanced vulnerability of HC after MDMA administration. Read More

Department of Otolaryngology, Lenox Hill Hospital/Northwell Health, 110-11 72nd Ave., Suite 1B, Forest Hills, NY 11375, USA.

Red ear syndrome (RES) is an unusual, often unrecognized condition that has rarely been reported in the otolaryngology literature despite the presence of symptoms and associated disorders of relevance to the otolaryngologist. When present, RES may have diagnostic value when uncertainties arise in cases of sinus headache and referred otalgia. Despite the appearance of a distinctive red ear, as well as symptoms and associated disorders relating to otolaryngology, discussion of RES is generally limited to neurology-based publications.

Progression in migraine: Role of mast cells and pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines.

Eur J Pharmacol 2018 Dec 6;844:87-94. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

UOS Clinica dei Pazienti del Territorio, Policlinico Gemelli, Rome, Italy. Electronic address:

Migraine is a common painful neurovascular disorder usually associated with several symptoms, such as photophobia, phonophobia, nausea, vomiting and inflammation, and involves immune cells. Mast cells (MCs) are immune cells derived from hematopoietic pluripotent stem cells which migrate and mature close to epithelial, blood vessels, and nerves. In almost all vascularized tissues there are MCs that produce, contain and release biologically active products including cytokines, arachidonic acid compounds, and proteases. Read More

Semergen 2018 Dec 7. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Centro de Salud Universitario La Paz, Servicio Extremeño de Salud, Badajoz, España. Electronic address:

Introduction: In assessing the patient with headache, clinicians are often faced with 2 important questions: Is this headache a migraine? Does this patient require neuroimaging? The aim of this study was to assess the validity and applicability of the mnemonic POUNDing rule in patients diagnosed with migraine.

Patients And Methods: A descriptive, validation study of the POUNDing rule in patients with a diagnosis of migraines and with a brain imaging test (computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging), in an urban health centre and a neurology clinic of the University Hospital of Badajoz.

Results: A total of 116 patients were included (mean age 45. Read More

Headache in Pregnancy, the Puerperium, and menopause.

Semin Neurol 2018 Dec 6;38(6):627-633. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Neurology, University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, The State University of New York, Buffalo, New York.

Headache is a neurologic disorder that displays gender dichotomy. It is well established that there is a strong link between migraine headache and sex hormones, specifically estrogen, which influences the severity of migraines during the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and menopause. Furthermore, the epidemiology of headaches during pregnancy and the postpartum period is very distinct from that in males or nonpregnant females, in part due to the hemodynamic and hematologic changes that occur during pregnancy.

Astrocyte elevated gene-1 induces autophagy in diabetic cardiomyopathy through upregulation of KLF4.

J Cell Biochem 2018 Dec 5. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Department of Pharmacy, Guangxi University of Chinese Medicine, Nanning, China.

Background: Astrocyte elevated gene-1 (AEG-1), also known as metadherin, 3D3, and lysine-rich carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 1 (CEACAM1) coisolated, has emerged as an important oncogene that is overexpressed in a variety of cancers. Previous studies revealed that AEG-1 is also involved in multiple physiological and pathological processes, such as development, inflammation, neurodegeneration, migraine, and Huntington's disease. However, the function of AEG-1 in diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) has not been reported yet. Read More

Economic analysis of acupuncture for migraine prophylaxis.

Neuropsychiatr Dis Treat 2018 12;14:3053-3061. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Czech-Chinese Centre for Traditional Chinese Medicine, University Hospital in Hradec Kralove, Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic,

Background: Acupuncture has become a viable option for migraine prophylaxis in Europe; however, despite its wide use, more data on the short- and long-term cost-effectiveness are needed when considering the perspectives of a paying third-party, the patient, and of society in general. The aim was to evaluate the cost and effectiveness of adjuvant acupuncture to pharmacologic treatment vs pharmacologic treatment alone in migraine patients after a 3-month acupuncture course and a 6-month follow-up from all perspectives.

Methods: The study involved an open-label randomized clinical trial of patients receiving acupuncture (n=42), and a waiting list control group (n=44). Read More
