Indicating spinal joint mobilisations or manipulations in patients with neck or low-back pain: protocol of an inter-examiner reliability study among manual therapists
This study will be conducted as a repeated-measures design in which 14 pairs of manual therapists independently examine a consecutive series of a planned total of 165 patients with neck or low-back pain presenting in primary care physiotherapy. Primary outcome measure is therapists' decision about whether or not manual spinal joint mobilisations or manipulations, or both, are indicated in each patient, alone or as part of a multimodal treatment. Therapists will largely be free to conduct the full diagnostic process based on their formulated examination objectives. For each pair of therapists, 2x2 tables will be constructed...

Plumbagin suppresses dendritic cell functions and alleviates experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis
In this study, we demonstrate that PL inhibits the differentiation, maturation, and function of human monocyte-derived DCs. PL can also restrict the expression of Th1- and Th17-polarizing cytokines in mDC. In addition, PL suppresses DCs both in vitro and in vivo, as demonstrated by its effects on the mouse DC line DC2.4 and mice with experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), respectively. Notably, PL ameliorated the clinical symptoms of EAE, including central nervous system (CNS) inflammation and demyelination. Our results demonstrate the immune suppressive and anti-inflammatory properties of PL via its effects on D...

Clinical applications of herbal medicines for anxiety and insomnia; targeting patients with bipolar disorder.
CONCLUSIONS: Adjunctive herbal medicines may have the potential to alleviate these symptoms and improve the outcomes of standard treatment, despite limited evidence. Physicians need to have a more in-depth understanding of the evidence of benefits, risks, and drug interactions of alternative treatments.

Enzymes in the Dissolution Testing of Gelatin Capsules.
Abstract Gelatin capsules are a widely used dosage form both for pharmaceutical drug products as well as dietary supplements. Gelatin in the presence of certain compounds, mainly aldehydes, or in high humidity and high temperature conditions can cross-link. Cross-linking involves covalent bonding of the amine group of a lysine side chain of one gelatin molecule to a similar amine group on another molecule. The covalent bonding is, for practical purposes, irreversible. Cross-linking results in the formation of a pellicle on the internal or external surface of the gelatin capsule shell that prevents the capsule fill ...

The Use of Non-Narcotic Pain Medication in Pediatric Gastroenterology.
Abstract The perception of pain in children is easily influenced by environmental factors and psychological comorbidities that are known to play an important role in its origin and response to therapy. Chronic abdominal pain is one of the most commonly treated conditions in modern pediatric gastroenterology and is the hallmark of 'functional' disorders that include irritable bowel syndrome, functional dyspepsia, and functional abdominal pain. The development of pharmacological therapies for these disorders in adults and children has been limited by the lack of understanding of the putative, pathophysiological mecha...

Vietnam Vet Credits Strong Will, Alternative Medicine to Mesothelioma Survival
Doctors told United States Army soldier Billy K. almost 50 years ago that he never would walk again, his left leg irreparably damaged by a spray of bullets when his patrol was ambushed in the jungle during the Vietnam War. Doctors told him last year he had six months to live, an unfortunate victim of malignant pleural mesothelioma, an aggressive and incurable cancer around his lungs. He didn't listen either time. Billy was back home last week cutting grass with a push mower, making plans to go camping with his wife and best friends. A proud military veteran and mesothelioma survivor doing surprisingly well today, Billy, 7...

Protein supplementation and dietary behaviours of resistance trained men and women attending commercial gyms: A comparative study between the city centre and the suburbs of Palermo, Italy
Conclusions: Protein consumption among commercial gym users is 30% for the CC and 28.8% for the SB. Significant differences were found between CC and SB females, underlining an interesting discrepancy, indicating to dietary supplement industries regarding regional implications. Subjects that use protein supplements also consume larger quantities of high protein food compared to NSU. NSU also eat higher proportion of unhealthy food compared to SU.

The faulty statistics of complementary alternative medicine (CAM).
Abstract The authors illustrate the difficulties involved in obtaining a valid statistical significance in clinical studies especially when the prior probability of the hypothesis under scrutiny is low. Since the prior probability of a research hypothesis is directly related to its scientific plausibility, the commonly used frequentist statistics, which does not take into account this probability, is particularly unsuitable for studies exploring matters in various degree disconnected from science such as complementary alternative medicine (CAM) interventions. Any statistical significance obtained in this field shou...

Nitric Oxide Induces Apoptosis and Autophagy; Autophagy Down-regulates NO Synthesis in Physalin A-treated A375-S2 Human Melanoma Cells.
In this study, NO generated by physalin A induced apoptosis and autophagy in A375-S2 cells, since physalin A induced the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in the cells. Generation of NO partially promoted both apoptosis and autophagy in A375-S2 cells. NO suppressed mTOR expression, which led to autophagy induction. An autophagic inhibitor, 3-methyladenine (3MA) promoted NO production, while acceleration of autophagy with an autophagic agonist rapamycin repressed NO production, suggesting that autophagy and NO production form a negative feedback loop that eventually protects the cells from apoptosis. The ...

Nutritional Recommendations for Divers.
Abstract Competitive diving involves grace, power, balance, and flexibility, which all require satisfying daily energy and nutrient needs. Divers are short, well muscled and lean, giving them a distinct biomechanical advantage. Although little diving-specific nutrition research on performance and health outcomes exist, there is concern that divers are excessively focused on body weight and composition, which may result in reduced dietary intake to achieve desired physique goals. This will result in low energy availability, which may negatively impact their power-to-weight ratio and health risks. There is increasing...

Cannabinoid-free Cannabis sativa L. grown in the Po valley: evaluation of fatty acid profile, antioxidant capacity and metabolic content.
This study provides useful information regarding three different hemp cultivars, from two sites, in view of their potential industrial application. The oil was characterised by a high unsaturated/saturated fatty acid ratio and by an almost perfect balance of ω-3 and ω-6 fatty acids, as requested for healthy foods. The alcoholic extracts, for which a high content of amino acids and phenolic compounds has been highlighted, could provide dietary supplements to help in preventing oxidative stress. By investigating the Carmagnola cultivar, six known and four new lignanamides have been identified, confirming and assessing the ...

Non-codified traditional medicine practices from Belgaum Region in Southern India: present scenario
Conclusion: Patrilineal transfer of the knowledge to younger generation was observed in Belgaum region. The observed resemblance in disease diagnosis, plant collection and processing between non-codified traditional system of medicine and Ayurveda require further methodical studies to establish the relationship between the two on a more objective basis. However, the practice appears to be at crossroads with threat of extinction, because of non-inheritance of the knowledge and non-availability of medicinal plants. Hence conservation strategies for both knowledge and resources at societal, scientific and legislative levels a...
