Osteoarthritis is characterized by the degeneration of articular cartilage. Cartilage metabolic markers have been explored as possible markers for osteoarthritis, and osteogenic protein -1 (OP-1) has emerged out to play a major role in cartilage repair. Oxidative stress has been implicated as a mediator of cartilage damage in patients with osteoarthritis. The aim of this study was to correlate the cartilage metabolic markers and antioxidants with the severity of knee osteoarthritis.

REVIEW
Ingrid Tonhajzerova, Michal Mestanik, Andrea Mestanikova, Alexander Jurko
Respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) is accepted as a peripheral marker of cardiac-linked parasympathetic regulation. According to polyvagal theory, the RSA is also considered as the index of emotion regulation. The neurovisceral integration model posits that parasympathetic modulation of the heart marked by RSA is related to complex nervous regulation associated with emotional and cognitive processing. From this perspective, high resting RSA amplitude associated with a greater withdrawal during stressors and subsequent recovery could represent a flexible and adaptive physiological response system to a challenge...
