OBJECTIVE: To study the clinical effects of electrical stimulation therapy on lumbar disc herniation-induced sciatica and its influence on peripheral reactive oxygen species (ROS) level. METHODS: 100 patients with lumbar disc herniation-induced sciatica were selected, and were randomly divided into the control and research group. The control group was treated with traction and other basic therapies, while the research group was treated with electrical stimulation...

We reported a Stiff person syndrome (SPS) patient with elevated autoantibodies against cardiolipin and β2 glycoprotein 1 but without glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) antibodies. A 40-year male was admitted due to limited mouth opening for 1 week. His blood routine, biochemical, infectious diseases, tumor markers, radiographic examinations were all normal. At day 3 (D3) after admission, he developed paroxysmal systemic muscle rigidity. At D6, the on-duty physician occasionally gave oral clonazepam, which effectively relieved the symptom...

BACKGROUND: Whole-body vibration (WBV) is an alternative intervention for patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) but its clinical efficacy is unclear. OBJECTIVE: To summarize the effects of WBV on important outcomes for patients with DPN. DATA SOURCES: Medline, PEDro, Cochrane CENTRAL and Google Scholar were searched up to July 2017. Search terms included diabetic neuropathies and WBV. STUDY SELECTION: Interventional studies that utilized WBV for treating DPN outcomes with at least one-week follow-up were included...

Use of intravenous bisphosphonates has been demonstrated to improve clinical outcomes in children with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI). However, efficacy and safety of bisphosphonates in adults with OI remains unclear. Atypical femur fractures (AFF) are rare insufficiency fractures associated with long-term bisphosphonate use. We report on a 56 year old woman with OI type 1 and long-term bisphosphonate use who was diagnosed with multiple myeloma (MM) following a severe vertebral fracture. During workup, an asymptomatic incomplete AFF of the left femur diaphysis was noted...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this experimental study was to investigate in depth the effects of osteopenia related to the rate, as well as to the quality of orthodontic tooth movement, by combining experimental ovariectomy and molar movement in rats. METHODS: Twenty-four six-month-old female Wistar rats were used in this study. The animals were divided into two groups consisting of twelve animals each: Group A (control group) was subjected to orthodontic movement of the upper right first molars...

OBJECTIVES: Donepezil inhibits the acetylcholine degradation molecule acetylcholinesterase (AChE). Clinical studies reported that Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients with hip fractures had improved bone quality and better fracture healing if they were treated with AD medication donepezil. We asked whether mesenchymal stroma cells (MSC) from an osteoporosis sheep model treated with donepezil increased their proliferation rate and mRNA expression. METHODS: Sheep were divided into 4 groups: a) untreated control group, b) sheep with bilateral ovariectomy (OVX), c) sheep with OVX and malnutrition, and d) sheep with OVX, malnutrition, and application of corticosteroid...

OBJECTIVES: To analyze the relationship of urine proteins and inflammatory cytokines with osteoporosis in patients with diabetic nephropathy. METHODS: 76 patients with diabetic nephropathy in Xintai Affiliated Hospital of Taishan Medical University were selected and divided into the combination with osteoporosis group (n=28) and the non-combination with osteoporosis group (n=48). The general data of patients was collected, and T scores of lumbar vertebrae and hips of the patients were recorded...

OBJECTIVES: Motor unit synchronization has been proposed as a potential mechanism underlying muscle strength gains for vibration training, but it has yet to be definitely demonstrated. Aim of this study was to determine whether motor unit synchronization induced by vibration has an effect on isometric muscle strength. METHODS: Thirty-six healthy volunteers were randomized into two groups: the vibration and the control (sham vibration) groups. Two sets of test measurements and vibration resistance training between the two sets were applied to the right wrist flexors...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to examine the association of relative handgrip strength (RHGS) with depressive mood and suicidal ideation. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 2167 men and 2643 women (aged 50.9 years ± 16.7 years) who participated in the 2015 Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. RHGS was defined by the handgrip strength/body mass index (BMI) ratio. Depressive mood and suicidal ideation were assessed using self-reported questionnaires...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate forearm muscle activity in individuals with lateral epicondylalgia (LE) when gripping at different wrist postures, and investigate the association between muscle activity and clinical characteristics of LE. METHODS: Eleven LE and 11 healthy participants performed isometric handgrips at 15% and 30% of maximum grip force (MVC). Gripping was performed in wrist extension, wrist flexion, and wrist neutral. Surface electromyography was collected from six forearm muscles...

BACKGROUND: Activin A plays as an anticatabolic autocrine cytokine in articular cartilage. Thus, this study aims to evaluate whether activin Aconcentration is correlated with the occurrence and severity of knee osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS: A total of 210 knee OA patients and 150 healthy controls were enrolled in this cross-sectional study, to evaluate the severity of OA by Kellgren-Lawrence (KL) grading method. RESULTS: It was found that the concentration of activin A in knee OA group was higher than that in healthy subjects...

Bone erosions develop early in the course of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and deteriorate progressively, causing joint damage and resulting in impaired functional capacity of patients. During the last years, considerable number of studies has increased our understanding of the pathogenetic mechanisms mediating the development of bone erosions in RA. Increased production of RANKL and other cytokines, dysregulation of innate immune mechanisms, autoantibodies specific to RA and alterations of microRNA expression stimulate differentiation and function of osteoclasts, which are responsible for the development of bone erosions...

Osteocytes, the most abundant bone cell in the adult skeleton, can function as mechanosensors directing osteoblast and osteoclast function in order to maintain optimal load bearing bone in addition to functioning as endocrine cells regulating phosphate metabolism. A controversial function, previously overlooked or denied, has been osteocytes as regulators of calcium metabolism. Early histologists upon observing enlarged osteocyte lacunae in bone sections proposed that mature osteocytes could remove their perilacunar matrix, a term called "osteocytic osteolysis"...

Seth W Donahue
August Krogh was a comparative physiologist who used frogs, guinea pigs, cats, dogs, and horses in his research that led to his Nobel Prize on muscle physiology. His idea to choose the most relevant organism to study problems in physiology has become known as Krogh's principle. Indeed, many important discoveries in physiology have been made using naturally occurring animal models. However, the majority of research today utilizes laboratory mouse and rat models to study problems in physiology. This paper discusses how Krogh's principle can be invoked in musculoskeletal research as a complementary approach to using standard laboratory rodent models for solving problems in musculoskeletal physiology...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the changes in inflammatory factors in patients with osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture (OVCF). METHODS: 40 OVCF patients meeting inclusion criteria were collected, and randomly divided into rehabilitation therapy group (n=20) and traditional therapy group (n=20). 20 normal subjects were collected as control group. Venous blood was collected after admission, and the expression levels of IL-1 and IL-18 were detected via ELISA. Patients in rehabilitation therapy group received rehabilitation training post-operatively, while those in traditional therapy group received conventional therapy...
