Pain management with acupuncture in osteoarthritis: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Conclusions: The use of acupuncture is associated with significant reductions in pain intensity, improvement in functional mobility and quality of life. While the differences are not as great as shown by other reviews, current evidence supports the use of acupuncture as an alternative for traditional analgesics in patients with osteoarthritis.Systematic review registration: CRD42013005405.

A relaxation technique enhances psychological well-being and immune parameters in elderly people from a nursing home: A randomized controlled study
Conclusions: This study represents a first approach to the application of a passive relaxation technique in residential programs for the elderly. The method appears to be effective in enhancing psychological well-being and modulating immune activity in a group of elderly people. This relaxation technique could be considered an option for achieving health benefits with a low cost for residential programs, but further studies using this technique in larger samples of older people are needed to confirm the trends observed in the present study.

Anxiety reduction in patients undergoing cardiac catheterization following massage and guided imagery.
CONCLUSIONS: Massage with or without guided imagery immediately reduced self-reported anxiety. This pilot study has certain limitations: a non-randomized, convenience sample and a matched control group that was created retrospectively. However, the study indicates a benefit to providing massage or massage with guided imagery prior to anxiety-inducing medical procedures such as cardiac catheterization.

Phytochemical screening and hypoglycemic activity of Carica papaya leaf in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats
This study was designed to explore the preliminary phytochemical and physicochemical analysis of Carica papaya L., Caricaceae, leaf, and further evaluation of its hypoglycemic effect on diabetic rats. C. papaya leaves were extracted using chloroform, n-hexane or ethanol. For each extract a phytochemical screening was performed. The tests were conducted in triplicate and the qualitative and quantitative determination of the various metabolites was done using analytical standards proposed by Mexican Herbal Pharmacopoeia. The chloroform extract, containing steroids and quinones as major components, was chosen to study C. papa...

Drugs and Anti-Aging
Sometimes patients come to me with what they call “symptoms of old age.” But often they’re not symptoms at all. They’re side effects.

In vitro biological evaluation of eight different essential oils against Trypanosoma cruzi, with emphasis on Cinnamomum verum essential oil
Conclusions: C. verum essential oil is effective against T. cruzi (epimastigotes, trypomastigotes and amastigotes) and interferes with the parasite differentiation process in vitro. Thus, it represents a strong candidate for further studies to improve its activity on pathogenic trypanosomatids. (Source: BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine)

A Review of the Clinical Evidence for Complementary and Alternative Therapies in Parkinson’s Disease
Opinion statement No conventional treatment has been convincingly demonstrated to slow or stop the progression of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Dopaminergic therapy is the gold standard for managing the motor disability associated with PD, but it falls short of managing all of the aspects of the disease that contribute to quality of life. Perhaps for this reason, an increasing number of patients are searching for a more holistic approach to healthcare. This is not to say that they are abandoning the standard and effective symptomatic therapies for PD, but rather are complementing them with healthy living, mind-body...

Memantine reduces alcohol drinking but not relapse in alcohol‐dependent rats
Abstract Alcoholism is a chronic relapsing disorder with consequences on health and that requires more effective treatments. Among alternative therapies, the therapeutic potential of the non‐competitive N‐methyl‐D‐aspartate receptor antagonist memantine has been suggested. Despite promising results, its efficiency in the treatment of alcoholism remains controversial. Currently, there is no pre‐clinical data regarding its effects on the motivation for ethanol in post‐dependent (PD) animals exposed to intermittent ethanol vapor, a validated model of alcoholism. Thus, the objectives of this study were to evaluate ...

Post‐infectional dynamics of leaf spot disease in Withania somnifera
Abstract Withania somnifera is a high value medicinal plant, native to Indian sub‐continent, and is extensively used in traditional systems of medicine. It is highly prone to leaf spot disease caused by Alternaria alternata, that may affect the quality of crude herbal drugs. In the present study, the accumulation of ROS (reactive oxygen species) was detected histochemically within the infected host tissue, using H2DCFDA (2′,7′‐difluorodihydrofluorescein diacetate) and DAB (3,3′‐diaminobenzidine) staining methods. This ROS accumulation was linked with the process of disease initiation. The microscopy studies wer...

Dietary supplement usage and motivation in Brazilian road runners
Conclusions: Supplement consumption by road runners in Brazil appeared to be guided by the energy boosting properties of the supplement, the influence of coaches, and the experience of the user. The amount of supplement intake seemed to be lower among road runners than for athletes of other sports. We recommend that coaches and nutritionists emphasise that a balanced diet can meet the needs of physically active people. (Source: Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition)

How Feedback Biases Give Ineffective Medical Treatments a Good Reputation
Conclusions: Online reviews overestimate the benefits of medical treatments, probably because people with negative outcomes are less inclined to tell others about their experiences.

Egyptian herbal tea infusions' antioxidants and their antiproliferative and cytotoxic activities against cancer cells.
Abstract The antioxidant, antiproliferative and cytotoxic activities against different human cancer cells were investigated in local and recently introduced plants of Mentha sp., Rosmarinus officinalis L. (ROL) and Origanum majorana L. (OML). ROL exhibited the highest antioxidant activities (IC50 8.4 ± 0.2 μg/mL) followed by OML and mint species such as Mentha suaveolens 'apple mint' and Mentha longifolia L. exhibiting moderate antioxidant activities. HPLC analysis of leaf extract revealed that rosmarinic acid is the main component followed by caffeic acid. Herbal leaf extracts varied in their proliferation in...

Berberine and limonin suppress IgE production by human B cells and peripheral blood mononuclear cells from food-allergic patients.
CONCLUSION: Berberine and limonin mediated IgE suppression. The mechanism by which berberine modulates ε-germline transcript expression might be through regulating the phosphorylated IκBα level and the expressions of signal transducer and activator of transcription-3 and T-box transcription factor TBX21.

Investigating Patient Perspectives on Medical Returns and Buying Medicines Online in Two Communities in Melbourne, Australia: Results from a Qualitative Study
Conclusion The increased availability of medicines transnationally and patients’ preparedness to procure these medicines from a range of sources raise important issues for the safe use of medicines. Further research is needed to understand how patients forge their own transnational therapeutic regimes, understand and manage their levels of risk in relation to safe medicine use and what points of intervention might be most effective to promote safe medicine use.

Determination of major metabolites of MAM-2201 and JWH-122 in and studies to distinguish their intake
Many synthetic cannabinoids have been synthesized over the last two decades in search of novel cannabinoid receptor agonists with therapeutic benefits [1]. However, most have not been approved for human use because of significant adverse effects and strong psychological activities [2,3]. Since synthetic cannabinoids emerged globally as new designer drugs in 2008, a wide range of synthetic analogues has been identified in herbal mixtures, and their abuse has become a serious problem. Some drugs have been introduced and replaced by other classes surprisingly quickly in response to legal action by authorities. (Source: Forens...
