BACKGROUND: Low back pain is a common, disabling musculoskeletal disorder in both developing and developed countries. Although often recommended, the potential efficacy of massage therapy in general, and Chinese massage (tuina) in particular, for relief of chronic low back pain (CLBP) has not been fully established due to inadequate sample sizes, low methodological quality, and subclinical dosing regimens of trials to date. Thus, the purpose of this randomized controlled trial (RCT) is to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of tuina massage therapy versus conventional analgesics for CLBP...

This philosophy believes that an individual will achieve his/her ideal health state when he/she has found interior harmony and is in balance with all his/her environment. From this viewpoint, this philosophy understands pathology as an unbalance or a lack of harmony in an organism...

Experiments were carried out in plant growth chambers and in the field to investigate plant-mercury accumulation and volatilisation in the presence of thiosulphate (S2O3)-containing solutions. Brassica juncea (Indian mustard) plants grown in Hg-contaminated Tui mine tailings (New Zealand) were enclosed in gastight volatilisation chambers to investigate the effect of ammonium thiosulphate ([NH4]2 S2O3) on the plant-Hg volatilisation process. Application of (NH4)2 S2O3 to substrates increased up to 6 times the Hg concentration in shoots and roots of B...

With a view to improve the diagnosis of salivary gland diseases (in particular, Sjögrén's syndrome) associated with decreased salivary gland function and decreased stimulated salivary gland response, the normal range of radionuclide uptake function and the stimulated salivary gland response were established in 27 subjects without any known salivary gland disease. Following injection of 99Tcm-pertechnetate, sequential images were recorded for 40 min with oral administration of citric acid at 30 min. The total uptake index (TUI) was calculated as the sum of the background corrected count rates over the parotid and submandibular glands at 3 min divided by the injected dose...
