Management of tarsal navicular stress fractures: conservative versus surgical treatment: a meta-analysis.

Am J Sports Med 2010 May 2;38(5):1048-53. Epub 2010 Mar 2.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19140, USA.

Purpose: This study was conducted to provide a statistical analysis of previously reported tarsal navicular stress fracture studies regarding the outcomes and effectiveness of conservative and surgical management.

Study Design: Systematic review.

Methods: A systematic review of the published literature was conducted utilizing MEDLINE through Ovid, PubMed, ScienceDirect, and EBSCOhost. Read More

The weight-bearing rate on the paretic limb of cerebrovascular hemiplegic patients necessary for an independent obstacle negotiation gait.

J Jpn Phys Ther Assoc 2009 ;12(1):9-12

Faculty of Human Life and Environmental Science, Department of Health Science, Kochi Women's University, Kochi 780-8515, Japan.

Purpose: The obstacle negotiation gait (ONG) is a fundamental activity of daily living. In cerebrovascular hemiplegic patients (stroke patients), the weight-bearing rate (WBR) on the paretic limb necessary for an independent ONG was studied.

Methods: One hundred and seventeen stroke patients were involved. Read More

Cell signaling and transcription factor genes expressed during whole body regeneration in a colonial chordate.

BMC Dev Biol 2008 Oct 12;8:100. Epub 2008 Oct 12.

Faculty of Biology, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel.

Background: The restoration of adults from fragments of blood vessels in botryllid ascidians (termed whole body regeneration [WBR]) represents an inimitable event in the chordates, which is poorly understood on the mechanistic level.

Results: To elucidate mechanisms underlying this phenomenon, a subtracted EST library for early WBR stages was previously assembled, revealing 76 putative genes belonging to major signaling pathways, including Notch/Delta, JAK/STAT, protein kinases, nuclear receptors, Ras oncogene family members, G-Protein coupled receptor (GPCR) and transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) signaling. RT-PCR on selected transcripts documented specific up-regulation in only regenerating fragments, pointing to a broad activation of these signaling pathways at onset of WBR. Read More

Treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus genotype 1 with peginterferon, ribavirin, and epoetin alpha.

Hepatology 2007 Aug;46(2):371-9

Hepatology Section, Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, Richmond, VA 23298, USA.

Unlabelled: Successful treatment of chronic HCV with peginterferon (PEGIFN) and ribavirin (RVN) is often limited by anemia. We performed the present study to determine if utilizing epoetin alpha (EPO) with or without a higher dose of RVN could enhance sustained virologic response (SVR). We randomized 150 treatment-naive patients with chronic HCV genotype 1 into 3 treatment groups: (1) PEGIFN alpha-2b (1. Read More

[Cerebral metabolism and permeability of the hemato-encephalic barrier in an experimental model for brain radiotherapy].

Radiol Med 1990 Nov;80(5):709-12

Istituto di Clinica Oncologica e Clinica Neurochirurgica, Università, Messina.

Whole brain irradiation (WBR) can produce acute and chronic neurological adverse effects, which are usually divided into acute, early delayed and late delayed reactions according to the time of onset. To assess the impact of WBR on brain functional parameters during the early-delayed phase, we employed the [14C]-2-deoxyglucose (2-DG) and the [14C]-alfa-aminoisobutyric (AIB) acid quantitative autoradiographic techniques to study local cerebral glucose utilization and blood-brain barrier permeability, respectively. Sprague-Dowley albino rats were exposed to conventional fractionation (200 Gy/day 5 days a week) for a total dose of 4000 Gy. Read More
