Department of Ophthalmology, Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, 2 Wanglang Road, Bangkok Noi, Bangkok, 10700, Thailand.

To identify triggering factors for the next inflammatory episode of recurrent acute anterior uveitis (RAAU), a 1:1 case-control study was conducted. We interviewed RAAU patients with recent acute anterior uveitis attack and quiescent controls for their information during a previous month using Srithanya Stress Test (ST-5) and questionnaires about potential triggering factors. Asymptomatic controls were matched for age (± 5 years), sex, and HLA-B27. Read More

Stress and craving reduction under treatment with heart rate variability biofeedback and the Phramongkutklao model among patients with alcohol use disorder.

Psychol Res Behav Manag 2019 6;12:619-627. Epub 2019 Aug 6.

Department of Psychology and Neurology, Phramongkutklao College of Medicine, Bangkok, Thailand.

Background And Objective: Stress is an environmental cue, which may lead to increased alcohol craving, and vulnerability to relapse. Heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback, a supplement standard for inpatient rehabilitation, has been applied for treatment and has been shown to effectively reduce craving and anxiety, increase HRV, and improve vasomotor function, among patients who have alcohol dependence problems. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of HRV biofeedback and the Phramongkutklao model (PMK model) as an intensive inpatient rehabilitation program concerning stress and craving reduction of inpatients with alcohol use disorder.

A Cut-off Value for Gestational Week at Birth for Better Perinatal Outcomes in Early- and Late-Onset Fetal Growth Restriction.

Z Geburtshilfe Neonatol 2019 Oct 17;223(5):289-296. Epub 2019 May 17.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki School of Medicine, Thessaloniki, Greece.

Objective: Prediction of cut-off value for gestational week at birth for better perinatal outcomes in early- and late-onset fetal growth restriction (FGR).

Materials And Methods: This study consists of 83 singleton pregnancies with FGR that were diagnosed antenatally and confirmed postnatally between January 2017-April 2018. We used the 34 gestational week as a cut-off for early- and late-onset FGR discrimination. Read More

Evaluation of the Ocular Surface Disease Index Questionnaire as a Discriminative Test for Clinical Findings in Dry Eye Disease Patients.

Curr Eye Res 2019 09 29;44(9):941-947. Epub 2019 Apr 29.

Department of Medical Biochemistry, Oslo University Hospital , Oslo , Norway.

: To investigate to what extent the OSDI can be utilized as a discriminative test for clinical findings. : One thousand and ninety patients with dry eye disease (DED) were consecutively included and examined for osmolarity, tear film break-up time (TFBUT), ocular protection index (OPI), ocular surface staining (OSS), Schirmer I test (ST), meibum expressibility (ME), meibum quality (MQ), and diagnosis of meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). Receiver-operating characteristic curve (ROC) analysis considering optimum balanced sensitivity and specificity (close to 50%) was used for assessment. Read More
