Frequent involvement of central nervous system in primary Sjögren syndrome
Abstract Primary Sjögren syndrome (pSS) is a systemic autoimmune disease characterized by lymphocytic infiltration of the salivary and tear glands, and autoantibody secretion, in the absence of other systemic autoimmune disorder. Among autoimmune diseases, it is a relatively common disease, but the burden of central nervous system (CNS) involvement is controversial. This retrospective study evaluates the prevalence, clinical patterns and outcomes of CNS involvement in a cohort of patients with primary Sjögren syndrome. We evaluated 93 patients with pSS diagnosed according to American-European Consensus Grou...

Altered iPSC-derived neurons’ sodium channel properties in subjects with Monge’s disease

Muotri , G.G. Haddad Monge’s disease, also known as chronic mountain sickness (CMS), is a disease that potentially threatens more than 140 million highlanders during extended time living at high altitudes (over 2500m). The prevalence of CMS in Andeans is about 15–20%, suggesting that the majority of highlanders (non-CMS) are rather healthy at high altitudes; however, CMS subjects experience severe hypoxemia, erythrocytosis and many...

Discriminating infectious meningitis versus neuropsychiatric involvement in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus: a single-center experience
The objective of this study is to identify the clinical differences between infectious meningitis and neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus (NPSLE) in patients with SLE. Clinical manifestations, laboratory test results, and prognoses of 14 SLE patients complicated with various infectious meningitis, hospitalized in the Affiliated Drum Tower Hospital of Nanjing University Medical School in the past 7 years, were reviewed and compared with those of 34 concomitantly treated NPSLE patients. Our study shows that mortality rate was much higher in SLE patients with infectious meningitis than in NPSLE patients. Compared t...

Optimizing the order of hypotheses in serial testing of multiple endpoints in clinical trials
Clinical trials usually collect information on a large number of variables or endpoints, including one or more primary endpoints as well as a number of secondary endpoints representing different aspects of treatment effectiveness and safety. In this article, we focus on serial testing procedures that test multiple endpoints in a pre‐specified order, and consider how to optimize the order of endpoints subject to any clinical constraints, with respect to the expected number of successes (i.e., endpoints that reach statistical significance) or the expected gain (if endpoints are associated with numerical utilities). We cons...

Migraine and Cranial Autonomic Symptoms in Children and Adolescents: A Clinical Study
The frequency of cranial autonomic symptoms in children affected by primary headaches is uncertain. The aim of our study was to estimate the frequency of symptoms in pediatric headaches and correlate it with main migraine characteristics. A questionnaire investigating the presence of cranial autonomic symptoms was administered to all children with primary headache for 2 years. A total of 230 children with primary headache (105 males, 125 females) were included. Two hundred two children were affected by migraine and 28 (12.2%) by other primary headaches. Cranial autonomic symptoms were significantly complained by migraineur...

Do Steroids Prolong Suffering? End-of-Life Care for Patients with Primary Brain Tumors (TH305)
Prognosis for primary brain tumors remains poor, despite aggressive treatment. In the late stages of the disease process, patients experience myriad symptoms for which there are little data in the literature to guide treatment decisions. These include seizures, headache, drowsiness, dysphagia, death rattle, agitation, and delirium. The literature that does exist suggests that end-of-life planning is limited regarding eliciting treatment preferences from patients or their surrogates, but that decisions are frequently made to withhold certain treatments in an effort to not prolong the dying process.

What's in a Dream?
Not all dreaming is the same. Dreaming runs the gamut of human experience (and sometimes beyond), incorporating a dizzying range of emotions and events, often with elements of the bizarre. Dreams can be funny, frightening, sad and strange. Flying dreams can be euphoric; chasing dreams can be terrifying; forgot-to-study-for-my-exam dreams can be stressful. There are several different types of dream classifications, including nightmares, recurring dreams and lucid dreams. Let's look briefly in detail at some distinct forms of dreaming. Nightmares are broadly defined as frightening dreams that result in some degree of awa...

Treatment of Pediatric Migraine
Opinion statement The diagnosis of migraine in the pediatric population is increasing as providers are becoming more familiar with recognizing the condition. Over-the-counter and migraine-specific treatment, once considered off-label, have proven to be effective, especially if given at the early onset of head pain. Mild to severe cases of migraine should be treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), with triptans used alone or in combination in moderate to severe headaches unresponsive to over-the-counter therapy. Rescue medication including dihydroergotamine (DHE), a potent vasoconstrictor shoul...

Health state utilities for migraine based on attack frequency: a time trade-off study
This study aims to evaluate health state utilities for migraine based on attack frequency from a mixed population sample consisting of migraineurs and non-migraineurs. A cross-sectional questionnaire survey was designed to measure health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in migraine without aura by time trade-off method (TTO). A convenience sample of university students and staff was recruited regardless of having ever experienced migraine or not. Subjects were asked to elicit two hypothetical health states characterised by different migraine frequencies (‘m’: two migraines lasting 4 h each month and ‘w’: each week)...

Surgically implanted and non‐invasive vagus nerve stimulation: a review of efficacy, safety and tolerability
Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is effective in refractory epilepsy and depression and is being investigated in heart failure, headache, gastric motility disorders and asthma. The first VNS device required surgical implantation of electrodes and a stimulator. Adverse events (AEs) are generally associated with implantation or continuous on−off stimulation. Infection is the most serious implantation‐associated AE. Bradycardia and asystole have also been described during implantation, as has vocal cord paresis, which can last up to 6 months and depends on surgical skill and experience.

Extension of traditional infectious disease surveillance with a repeated population survey
Conclusions: Extending traditional surveillance with a repeated population survey offers the unique opportunity to gather data for a multitude of purposes. The survey already has been used in two outbreak investigations and two case–control studies. It is cost-effective and may provide novel epidemiological insights towards risk group and risk factor identification and characterization for a variety of infectious diseases. The survey will be continued and expanded in use. (Source: The European Journal of Public Health)
