Background. : A substantial part of low back pain (LBP) originates from degeneration of the intervertebral disc. To confirm the diagnosis of discogenic pain, provocation discography seems the best available tool. However, provocation discography is also considered to be a controversial and subjective test because the patient's personal pain response is the most crucial for the result of the test. Recently, an in vivo porcine study and a study in nine human subjects showed passing of pressure to the adjacent discs during discography...

BACKGROUND: A family-centred approach to services of children with disabilities is widely accepted as the foundational approach to service delivery in paediatric health care. The 56 items of the Measure of Processes of Care questionnaire (MPOC-56) all reflect elements of family-centred service. In this study, we investigated which elements of family-centred service are rated important by parents of children with cerebral palsy by adding a question on importance to each item of the MPOC-56 (MPOC-56-I)...

New technological devices, particularly those with touch screens, have become virtually omnipresent over the last decade. Practically from birth, children are now surrounded by smart phones and tablets. Despite being our constant companions, little is known about whether these tools can be used not only for entertainment, but also to collect reliable scientific data. Tablets may prove particularly useful for collecting behavioral data from those children (1-10 years), who are, for the most part, too old for studies based on looking times and too young for classical psychophysical testing...

This research explored associations between helmet use and head injuries in snowsports by investigating reported snowsport injuries in Western Canada from 2008-2009 to 2012-2013. The key finding was that increased helmet use (from 69% to 80%) was not associated with a reduction in reported head injuries. Over the study period, the average rate of reported head injuries was 0.2/1000 skier visits, with a statistically significant variation (P < 0.001). The line of best fit showed an non-significant upward trend (P = 0...

OBJECTIVE: This study applied a human factors approach to snowsport resort systems to contribute to the understanding of the incidence and severity of pediatric snowsport head accelerations. BACKGROUND: Previous research indicates low magnitude head accelerations are common among snowsport participants. This study adds to the knowledge of snowsport safety by measuring aspects of participants' snowsport behavior and linking this with head acceleration data. METHOD: School-aged students (n = 107) wore telemetry-fitted helmets and Global Positioning System (GPS) devices during snowsport activity...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate risk factors associated with wrist fractures in snowboarders to inform future snowsport safety strategies. METHODS: A prospective case-control study using a nonprobability convenience sample was conducted with data collected via a respondent-completed questionnaire. Subjects consisted of snowboarders with a snowboard-related injury who presented to one of 10 medical centers and physiotherapy clinics in resort medical centers and gateway communities across the Australian snowsport season in 2007...

Reversible posterior encephalopathy (RPES) is an uncommon neurological syndrome that is being increasingly reported in association with anti-neoplastic therapies. The first case of reversible posterior encephalopathy associated with the proteosome inhibitor bortezomib is described and the reported experience of the occurrence of RPES with other antineoplastic therapies reviewed. Dysregulation of cerebral vasomotor autoregulation is postulated as the underlying pathophysiology in this case of bortezomib associated RPES...

If in the Netherlands a doctor offers experimental treatment to patients purely because it is in their patients' best interest, thus without serving any scientific goal, this does not fall under the scope of the Dutch Medical Research involving Human Subjects Act (WMO), but under specifications on the medical treatment agreement (WGBO) laid down in the civil code. If the doctor deviates from professional standards and the current protocols and guidelines, he or she must be able to account for that. The WMO applies as soon as doctors offer experimental treatments within the context of a research protocol, or perform research interventions such as randomization or the removal of extra tissue...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the association of HLA-DRB1, rheumatoid factor (RF), and anti-citrullinated protein antibody (ACPA) status with progression of joint damage in early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treated according to different treatment strategies. METHODS: The present study was conducted using data from the BeSt study (Behandelstrategieën voor Reumatoide Artritis [treatment strategies for rheumatoid arthritis]), a randomized trial comparing 4 targeted (toward achievement of a Disease Activity Score [DAS] of < or =2...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy of minocycline in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: Minocycline (maximal oral daily dose 200 mg) or placebo was administered in a 26-week, randomized, double-blind study to 80 patients with active RA, who were treated or had previously been treated with at least one disease-modifying antirheumatic drug. RESULTS: There were 15 premature discontinuations: 6 (5 taking minocycline) because of adverse effects, 8 (all taking placebo) because of lack of efficacy, and 1 (taking placebo) because of intercurrent illness...

In plasma samples of 11 fetuses of about 20 weeks of gestational age the following coagulation factors have been determined (mean values found are given in parentheses): fibrinogen (0.30 U/ml), prothrombin (+/-0.17 U/ml), factor V (0.28 U/ml), factor VII (0.21 U/ml), factor VIII coagulant activity (factor VIII:C) (0.12 U/ml), factor VIII-related antigen (factor VIIIR:Ag) (1.04 U/ml), coagulant factor VIII-related antigen (factor VII:CAg) (0.19 U/ml), factor IX coagulant activity (0.05 U/ml), factor IX antigen (less than or equal to 0...

An immunoradiometric assay of procoagulant factor VIII antigen was developed using a human antibody to the procoagulant activity of factor VIII (VIII:C). The assay measures specifically the antigen related to factor VIII procoagulant activity (VIIICAG) both in plasma and in serum. VIII:C and VIIICAG were measured in a group of healthy individuals and in a group of haemophilia A patients. In haemophilia A at least four groups can be recognised on the basis of the presence or absence of VIII:C and VIIICAG and the VIII:C/VIIICAG ratio...

In plasma samples from 10 premature infants born after about 32 weeks of gestation, a number of coagulation factors have been determined. For 9 infants, who were healthy, mean values are given: fibrinogen-antigen, 311 mg/dl; factor II, +/- 0.46 U/ml; factor V, 0.80 U/ml; factor VII, 0.59 U/ml; factor VIII coagulant activity, 0.93 U/ml; factor VIII-related antigen, 1.66 U/ml; procoagulant factor VIII antigen, 1.15 U/ml; factor IX coagulant activity, 0.41 U/ml; factor IX antigen, 0.42 U/ml; factor X coagulant activity, 0...

In a controlled study, 40 patients with refractory fibromyalgia were randomly allocated to treatment with either hypnotherapy or physical therapy for 12 weeks with followup at 24 weeks. Compared with the patients in the physical therapy group, the patients in the hypnotherapy group showed a significantly better outcome with respect to their pain experience, fatigue on awakening, sleep pattern and global assessment at 12 and 24 weeks, but this was not reflected in an improvement of the total myalgic score measured by a dolorimeter...
