Late radiation morbidity following randomization to preoperative versus postoperative radiotherapy in extremity soft tissue sarcoma Reviewer: John Wilson, MD Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania Last Modified: March 26, 2006. Late subcutaneous fibrosis and joint stiffness were assessed using the joint EORTC/RTOG late toxicity scoring criteria. Authors' Conclusions The authors report that these results suggest that postop RT causes more late toxicity, but they admit the toxicity is not significantly different from that seen with preop RT. However, they do point out that the sample size was fairly underpowered to show a difference in late toxicity, with powers of 40% for fibrosis, 12% for joint stiffness, and 22% for extremity edema. They conclude by saying that preop RT may have less late toxicity, but this must be balanced against...

Patient Presentation A 15-month-old caucasian male came to clinic for his health supervision visit. He was developing and growing normally and his parents had no concerns. He was taking a mixed diet appropriate for his age with ~20 ounces of whole milk daily. The pertinent physical exam showed a healthy appearing male with growth parameters at the 75% and a normal examination. His screening laboratory evaluation showed a hemoglobin of 10.6 mg/dL. The new intern wasn’t sure how to manage the diagnosis of anemia and asked about how much iron to prescribe. His medical record review noted a normal neonatal screening test and normal complete blood count at birth done because of a maternal fever. After discussion with her attending physician, they decided that this presumably was iron deficiency anemia, and they would treat with supplemental iron for 1...

A combination of 2 direct-acting antivirals, MK-5172 and MK-8742, with or without ribavirin, led to early post-treatment sustained response rates above 90% for genotype 1 hepatitis C patients, including people with cirrhosis or HIV/HCV coinfection, according to a series of presentations last week at the 49th EASL International Liver Congress in London. In Part B, 30 genotype 1a patients were assigned to triple therapy for 8 weeks and 31 were assigned to ribavirin-free dual therapy for 12 weeks. Among participants treated for 12 weeks, 94% in the dual therapy arm and 98% in the triple therapy arm reached SVR4-SVR24. Looking at the treatment-naive cirrhotic group, with 4 to 8 weeks post-treatment follow-up, SVR4-SVR8 rates were 90% in the 12-week triple therapy arm with 1 viral breakthrough during treatment and 2 relapses, and 97% in the 12-week dual therapy arm and in both the 18-week arms. 97% in...

NEW YORK Control of A1C, blood pressure and cholesterol among patients with diabetes has improved markedly, but more room for improvement remains, according to a new study. 15 issue of the journal Diabetes Care, found that from 1988 to 2010, the number of people with diabetes able to meet or exceed measures of A1C, blood pressure and cholesterol which together indicate good diabetes management rose from 2% to 19%. More than half of people met each individual goal in 2010. However, we see a lot of room for improvement for everyone, but particularly for younger people and some minority groups. According to 2007-2010 data, 53% of Americans with diabetes met A1C goals, compared with 43% in 1988-1994; 51% met blood pressure goals, compared with 33% in 1988-1994; and 56% met cholesterol goals, compared with 10% in 1988-1994.

Large Text Treatment after lumpectomy in small estrogen negative tumors Treatment after lumpectomy in small estrogen negative tumors Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts," My wife has undergone a lumpectomy for a 0.8cm nodule, sentinel lymph nodes were clear. Is there as clear a course of therapy in these cases as there is for the er/pr positive patients. The first and most important treatment is surgical resection lumpectomy of the breast cancer which has been completed. However, the risk of local recurrence after a lumpectomy is quite high and radiation therapy to the breast is certainly indicated. A consultation with a radiation oncologist to discuss this therapy should be arranged for all patients after a lumpectomy. Most of the existing data assessing the benefit of chemotherapy is in patients with primary tumors larger than one centimeter. Of course, each patient's situation is assessed individually, but most women with a primary tumor that small do not gain a tremendous benefit from systemic chemotherap...

Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer. The joint analysis is on data from 3,351 patients: 1,736 women in NSABP-B31 and 1,615 women in NCCTG-N9831. In NSABP-B31, paclitaxel was given at 175 mg/m 2 every 3 weeks for four cycles; in NCCTG-N9831, paclitaxel was given at 80 mg/m 2 every week for 12 cycles. The study arm for the joint analysis, therefore, was AC followed by paclitaxel plus trastuzumab, and the control arm was AC followed by paclitaxel. Unprecedented Results Findings of the first interim intent-to-treat analysis of 395 DFS events were dramatic: Use of trastuzumab reduced the overall risk of local recurrence at 3 years by 52% hazard ratio = 0.48, 2P = 3 ´ 10 -12, with 261 recurrences in women on chemotherapy alone vs 134 in those on trastuzumab. The absolute reduction in risk of recurrence by Kaplan-Meier analysis was 12% with trastuzumab at 3 years, and 18% at 4 years. The estimated absolute reduction in risk with trastuzumab was 9% at 3 years and 16% at 4 years. Cardiac Risk While chemotherap...

*  Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors
... 'Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors' 'RECIST' is a set of published rules that define when tumors in cancer patients improve "respond", stay the same "stabilize", or worsen "progress" during treatment. The criteria were published in February 2000 by an international collaboration including the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer EORTC, National Cancer Institute of the United States, and the National Cancer Institute of Canada Clinical Trials Group. Today, the majority of clinical trials evaluating cancer treatments for objective response in solid tumors use RECIST. These criteria were developed and published in February 2000, and subsequently updated in 2009. They are specifically NOT meant to determine whether patients have improved or not, as these are tumor-centric, not patient centric criteria. This distinction must be made by both the treating physicians and the cancer patients themselves. It is not intended that these RECIST guidelines play a role in that decision m...

... Surgery. Cancer Center Cancer Treatment: Surgery For Cancer Treatment How is surgery used in cancer treatment. It provides the best chance to stop many types of cancer, and it also plays a part in diagnosing, staging, and supporting cancer treatment. Having surgery for cancer is different for every patient, depending on the type of surgery, the type of cancer, and the patient's health. Surgeons use curative surgery when the cancerous tumor is localized to a specific area of the body. However, other types of cancer treatments, such as radiation, may be used before or after the surgery. Preventive surgery is used to remove tissue that does not contain cancerous cells, but may develop into a malignant tumor. Other types of cancer treatment, such as chemotherapy and radiation, may be used after debulking surgery is performed. What are the risks and potential side effects of surgery for cancer treatment. This is one of the reasons why learning about your cancer and cancer treatment is important. Cryosurgery i...

*  .. Avastin Label Changes Reignites Debate: Is OS or PFS the Better Regulatory End
FDA s success in removing Avastin s metastatic breast cancer MBC indication has sparked a longstanding debate in drug development circles: What is the best proof that a drug works and should be approved. A panel discussion held November 29 in Cambridge, MA, debated whether the primary endpoint for regulatory sanction should remain overall survival OS or if it should change to progression-free survival PFS. CDER pointed to new studies, one of which showed a difference in overall survival for patients with MBC of less than two months from 24.8 months to 26.5 months. FDA countered that the primary endpoint should instead be overall survival, while PFS should continue as a surrogate endpoint of clinical benefit. During the discussion held on November 29, called Surrogates or Survival: A Discussion on Endpoints in Multiple Myeloma Clinical Trials, moderator Anne Quinn Young recalled how cancer treatment has changed over the past 10 years. Both PFS and OS are appropriate endpoints to define clinical benefits for pa...

(1/73093) Prednisone in MOPP chemotherapy for Hodgkin's disease.

High remission rates have been produced by MOPP (mustine, vincristine, procarbazine, and prednisone) chemotherapy in patients with advanced Hodgkin's disease, but the prednisone component has caused adverse effects in patients who have undergone radiotherapy. The remission rates and length of remission were reviewed in 211 patients with Hodgkin's disease who received chemotherapy either with or without prednisone. In contrast to the findings of a British study, there were no significant differences in remission rates or length of remission between patients who had received prednisone and patients who had not. There were differences between the British prospective study and this retrospective one, but it is difficult to know what accounted for the substantial differences in the findings.  (+info)

(2/73093) Expression of nitric oxide synthase in inflammatory bowel disease is not affected by corticosteroid treatment.

AIM: To examine the effect of corticosteroid treatment on the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in the colon of patients with inflammatory bowel disease. METHODS: Four groups of patients were studied: (1) ulcerative colitis treated with high dose corticosteroids (six patients, 10 blocks); (2) ulcerative colitis patients who had never received corticosteroids (10 patients, 16 blocks); (3) Crohn's disease treated with high dose corticosteroids (12 patients, 24 blocks); (4) Non-inflammatory, non-neoplastic controls (four patients, six blocks). Full thickness paraffin sections of colons removed at surgery were immunostained with an antibody raised against the C terminal end of iNOS. Sections were assessed semiquantitatively for the presence and degree of inflammation and immunoreactivity for nitric oxide synthase. RESULTS: Cases of ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease with active inflammation showed strong staining for nitric oxide synthase. The staining was diffuse in ulcerative colitis and patchy in Crohn's disease, in accordance with the distribution of active inflammation. Staining was seen in epithelial cells and was most intense near areas of inflammation such as crypt abscesses. Non-inflamed epithelium showed no immunoreactivity. Treatment with corticosteroids made no difference to the amount of nitric oxide synthase. CONCLUSIONS: Expression of nitric oxide synthase is increased in both ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease and appears to be unaffected by treatment with corticosteroids. Disease severity necessitated surgery in all the cases included in this study, regardless of whether or not the patients had received long term corticosteroid treatment. It seems therefore that a high level of iNOS expression and, presumably, production of nitric oxide characterise cases which are refractory to clinical treatment; this suggests that specific inhibition of the enzyme may be a useful therapeutic adjunct.  (+info)

(3/73093) The role of alternative splicing of the adhesion molecule, CD44, in lymphoid malignancy.

AIM: To investigate the expression of CD44 isoforms containing variant exon 6 (v6) in a well characterised cohort of patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), and to correlate this with phenotype and disease course. METHODS: Cryostat sections of OCT embedded diagnostic nodal material from NHL patients and cryopreserved mononuclear preparations from CLL patients were used as sources of RNA. After reverse transcription, PCR was carried out with amplimers positioned at either side of the variant exon insertion site to amplify all possible CD44 isoforms. Those isoforms containing v6 were identified after Southern blotting and hybridisation with a radiolabelled oligonucleotide. RESULTS: Of 32 NHL samples analysed, 16 did not express CD44 isoforms containing v6, six expressed an isoform containing exon v6 alone, and 10 expressed v6 long isoforms which contained exon v6 in addition to other variant exons. These data did not correlate with lymphoma classification, disease staging, or the presence or absence of extranodal disease. However, those patients expressing v6 long CD44 isoforms had a worse overall survival than those that did not. The plateau of the survival curves was 50% compared with 82%. No v6 long isoforms were detected in the 21 CLL samples investigated. CONCLUSIONS: The expression of v6 long CD44 isoforms is associated with aggressive disease in NHL, independent of grade, stage, or presence of extranodal disease.  (+info)

(4/73093) Analysis of the effect of conversion from open to closed surgical intensive care unit.

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effect on clinical outcome of changing a surgical intensive care unit from an open to a closed unit. DESIGN: The study was carried out at a surgical intensive care unit in a large tertiary care hospital, which was changed on January 1, 1996, from an open unit, where private attending physicians contributed and controlled the care of their patients, to a closed unit, where patients' medical care was provided only by the surgical critical care team (ABS or ABA board-certified intensivists). A retrospective review was undertaken over 6 consecutive months in each system, encompassing 274 patients (125 in the open-unit period, 149 in the closed-unit period). Morbidity and mortality were compared between the two periods, along with length-of-stay (LOS) and number of consults obtained. A set of independent variables was also evaluated, including age, gender, APACHE III scores, the presence of preexisting medical conditions, the use of invasive monitoring (Swan-Ganz catheters, central and arterial lines), and the use of antibiotics, low-dose dopamine (LDD) for renal protection, vasopressors, TPN, and enteral feeding. RESULTS: Mortality (14.4% vs. 6.04%, p = 0.012) and the overall complication rate (55.84% vs. 44.14%, p = 0.002) were higher in the open-unit group versus the closed-unit group, respectively. The number of consults obtained was decreased (0.6 vs. 0.4 per patient, p = 0.036), and the rate of occurrence of renal failure was higher in the open-unit group (12.8% vs. 2.67%, p = 0.001). The mean age of the patients was similar in both groups (66.48 years vs. 66.40, p = 0.96). APACHE III scores were slightly higher in the open-unit group but did not reach statistical significance (39.02 vs. 36.16, p = 0.222). There were more men in the first group (63.2% vs. 51.3%). The use of Swan-Ganz catheters or central and arterial lines were identical, as was the use of antibiotics, TPN, and enteral feedings. The use of LDD was higher in the first group, but the LOS was identical. CONCLUSIONS: Conversion of a tertiary care surgical intensive care unit from an open to closed environment reduced dopamine usage and overall complication and mortality rates. These results support the concept that, when possible, patients in surgical intensive care units should be managed by board-certified intensivists in a closed environment.  (+info)

(5/73093) Peripheral hepatojejunostomy as palliative treatment for irresectable malignant tumors of the liver hilum.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the concept of surgical decompression of the biliary tree by peripheral hepatojejunostomy for palliative treatment of jaundice in patients with irresectable malignant tumors of the liver hilum. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Jaundice, pruritus, and recurrent cholangitis are major clinical complications in patients with obstructive cholestasis resulting from malignant tumors of the liver hilum. Methods for palliative treatment include endoscopic stenting, percutaneous transhepatic drainage, and surgical decompression. The palliative treatment of choice should be safe, effective, and comfortable for the patient. METHODS: In a retrospective study, surgical technique, perioperative complications, and efficacy of treatment were analyzed for 56 patients who had received a peripheral hepatojejunostomy between 1982 and 1997. Laparotomy in all of these patients had been performed as an attempt for curative resection. RESULTS: Hepatojejunostomy was exclusively palliative in 50 patients and was used for bridging to resection or transplantation in 7. Anastomosis was bilateral in 36 patients and unilateral in 20. The 1-month mortality in the study group was 9%; median survival was 6 months. In patients surviving >1 month, a marked and persistent decrease in cholestasis was achieved in 87%, although complete return to normal was rare. Among the patients with a marked decrease in cholestasis, 72% had no or only mild clinical symptoms such as fever or jaundice. CONCLUSIONS: Peripheral hepatojejunostomy is a feasible and reasonably effective palliative treatment for patients with irresectable tumors of the liver hilum. In patients undergoing exploratory laparotomy for attempted curative resection, this procedure frequently leads to persistent-although rarely complete-decompression of the biliary tree. In a few cases it may also be used for bridging to transplantation or liver resection after relief of cholestasis.  (+info)

(6/73093) Reconstruction for chronic dysfunction of ileoanal pouches.

OBJECTIVE: A retrospective review was performed to determine the results after surgical reconstruction for chronic dysfunction of ileal pouch-anal procedures for ulcerative colitis and familial colonic polyposis at a university medical center. METHODS: During the 20-year period from 1978 to 1998, 601 patients underwent colectomy and ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) for ulcerative colitis, familial colonic polyposis, or Hirschsprung's disease. A J pouch was used for 351 patients, a lateral pouch for 221, an S pouch for 6, and a straight pull-through for 23. Acute complications after pouch construction have been detailed in previous publications and are not included in this study. Chronic pouch stasis with diarrhea, frequency, urgency, and soiling gradually became more severe in 164 patients (27.3%), associated with pouch enlargement, an elongated efferent limb, and obstruction to pouch outflow, largely related to the pouch configuration used during the authors' early clinical experience. These patients were sufficiently symptomatic to be considered for reconstruction (mean 68 months after IPAA). Transanal resection of an elongated IPAA spout was performed on 58 patients; abdominoperineal mobilization of the pouch with resection and tapering of the lower end (AP reconstruction) and ileoanal anastomosis on 83; pouch removal and new pouch construction on 7; and conversion of a straight pull-through to a pouch on 16. RESULTS: Good long-term results (mean 7.7 years) with improvement in symptoms occurred in 98% of transanal resections, 91.5% of AP reconstructions, 86% of new pouch constructions, and 100% of conversions of a straight pull-through to a pouch. The average number of bowel movements per 24 hours at 6 months was 4.8. Complications occurred in 11.6% of reconstructed patients. Five of the 164 patients (3.1%) required eventual pouch removal and permanent ileostomy. The high rate of pouch revision in this series of patients undergoing IPAA is due to a policy of aggressive correction when patients do not experience an optimal functional result, or have a progressive worsening of their status. CONCLUSIONS: Although occasionally a major undertaking, reconstruction of ileoanal pouches with progressive dysfunction due to large size or a long efferent limb has resulted in marked improvement in intestinal function in >93% of patients and has reduced the need for late pouch removal.  (+info)

(7/73093) Use of wood stoves and risk of cancers of the upper aero-digestive tract: a case-control study.

BACKGROUND: Incidence rates for cancers of the upper aero-digestive tract in Southern Brazil are among the highest in the world. A case-control study was designed to identify the main risk factors for carcinomas of mouth, pharynx, and larynx in the region. We tested the hypothesis of whether use of wood stoves is associated with these cancers. METHODS: Information on known and potential risk factors was obtained from interviews with 784 cases and 1568 non-cancer controls. We estimated the effect of use of wood stove by conditional logistic regression, with adjustment for smoking, alcohol consumption and for other sociodemographic and dietary variables chosen as empirical confounders based on a change-in-estimate criterion. RESULTS: After extensive adjustment for all the empirical confounders the odds ratio (OR) for all upper aero-digestive tract cancers was 2.68 (95% confidence interval [CI] : 2.2-3.3). Increased risks were also seen in site-specific analyses for mouth (OR = 2.73; 95% CI: 1.8-4.2), pharyngeal (OR = 3.82; 95% CI: 2.0-7.4), and laryngeal carcinomas (OR = 2.34; 95% CI: 1.2-4.7). Significant risk elevations remained for each of the three anatomic sites and for all sites combined even after we purposefully biased the analyses towards the null hypothesis by adjusting the effect of wood stove use only for positive empirical confounders. CONCLUSIONS: The association of use of wood stoves with cancers of the upper aero-digestive tract is genuine and unlikely to result from insufficient control of confounding. Due to its high prevalence, use of wood stoves may be linked to as many as 30% of all cancers occurring in the region.  (+info)

(8/73093) Helicobacter pylori infection, garlic intake and precancerous lesions in a Chinese population at low risk of gastric cancer.

BACKGROUND: Cangshan County of Shandong Province has one of the lowest rates of gastric cancer (GC) in China. While intestinal metaplasia (IM) and dysplasia (DYS) are less common in Cangshan than in areas of Shandong at high risk of GC, these precursor lesions nevertheless affect about 20% of adults age > or = 55. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: In order to evaluate determinants of IM and DYS in Cangshan County, a low risk area of GC a survey was conducted among 214 adults who participated in a gastroscopic screening survey in Cangshan County in 1994. METHOD: A dietary interview and measurement of serum Helicobacter pylori antibodies were performed. RESULTS: The prevalence of H. pylori was lowest (19%) among those with normal gastric mucosa, rising steadily to 35% for superficial gastritis (SG), 56% for chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG), 80% for IM, and 100% for DYS. The prevalence odds of precancerous lesions were compared with the odds of normal histology or SG. The odds ratio (OR) or CAG associated with H. pylori positivity was 4.2 (95% confidence interval [CI] : 1.7-10.0), while the OR of IM/DYS associated with H. pylori positivity was 31.5 (95% CI: 5.2-187). After adjusting for H. pylori infection, drinking alcohol was a risk factor for CAG (OR = 3.2, 95% CI: 1.1-9.2) and IM/DYS (OR = 7.8, 95% CI: 1.3-47.7). On the other hand, consumption of garlic showed non-significant protective effects and an inverse association with H. pylori infection. CONCLUSIONS: The findings of this study suggest that infection with H. pylori is a risk factor and garlic may be protective, in the development and progression of advanced precancerous gastric lesions in an area of China at relatively low risk of GC.  (+info)


What studies show boys with unisex names are unhappier or have more problems?


More than a few times here and on other message boards I've seen people state that "studies" show that boys with unisex names are unhappier, cause more trouble, resent their parents etc. But no one ever points to such "studies". Do they really exist or do people just make it up based on what they believe?
----------

I can't imagine there are too many such studies. Back in the late 40's and early 50's some what I consider girls names were very popular for boys and my husband has one of them. I can't say it has affected him at all.


How do studies of physicians, nurse and police help us to study the effects of sleep deprivation?


How do studies of physicians, nurse and police help us to study the effects of sleep deprivation?
----------

because they work long hours, and sometimes only get a few hours of sleep. if i'm reading this question correctly.


What studies have been done which have confirmed a breast cancer and abortion link?


No offense intended, but I am only interested in studies - not opinions or debates. I am specifically interested in studies which regard the link as existent, as I have already found articles disproving the link.
----------

The largest, and probably the most reliable study on this topic was done during the 1990s in Denmark, a country with very detailed medical records on all its citizens. In that study, all Danish women born between 1935 and 1978 (a total of 1.5 million women) were linked with the National Registry of Induced Abortions and with the Danish Cancer Registry. So all information about their abortions and their breast cancer came from registries, was very complete, and was not influenced by recall bias. 

After adjusting for known breast cancer risk factors, the researchers found that induced abortion(s) had no overall effect on the risk of breast cancer. The size of this study and the manner in which it was done provides good evidence that induced abortion does not affect a woman's risk of developing breast cancer.

Another large, prospective study was reported on by Harvard researchers in 2007. This study included more than 100,000 women who were between the ages of 29 and 46 at the start of the study in 1993. These women were followed until 2003. Again, because they were asked about childbirths and abortions at the start of the study, recall bias was unlikely to be a problem. After adjusting for known breast cancer risk factors, the researchers found no link between either spontaneous or induced abortions and breast cancer.

The California Teachers Study also reported on more than 100,000 women in 2008. Researchers asked the women in 1995 about past induced and spontaneous abortions. While the women were being followed in the study, more than 3,300 developed invasive breast cancer. There was no difference in breast cancer risk between the group who had either spontaneous or induced abortions and those who had not had an abortion.

In February 2003, the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) held a workshop of more than 100 of the world's leading experts who study pregnancy and breast cancer risk. The experts reviewed human and animal studies that looked at the link between pregnancy and breast cancer risk, including studies of induced and spontaneous abortions. Some of their findings were: 

•Breast cancer risk is increased for a short time after a full-term pregnancy (that is, a pregnancy that results in the birth of a living child).
•Induced abortion is not linked to an increase in breast cancer risk.
•Spontaneous abortion is not linked to an increase in breast cancer risk.
The level of scientific evidence for these findings was considered to be "well established" (the highest level).


Sorry, we here on the cancer board aren't big into spreading falsehoods and nonsense, especially if we've had cancer ourselves.


What exactly is the difference between social studies and history?


A university that I am looking at requires two years of social studies. I took World History CP freshman year, then US AP 1 and 2 sophomore and junior year. Will those qualify as social studies credits?
----------

They're basically the same terms. Those are both social studies credits I'm pretty sure, but we wouldn't know. The only way you could be sure is to look those courses up in your Program of Studies. But I'm pretty sure that those count as history/social studies credits.


Is chiropractic treatment mostly placebo? Are there studies to prove the theory of subluxation?


I have seen studies that shown benefits for low back pain. But it seems that it is only marginally better than conventional medicine. So could it be a placebo effect? Also, is the diagnosis of a short leg substantial or of clinical value?
----------

Good question, but needs a little bit of refining.

Is chiro treatment placebo?  Treatment for what? Back pain or something visceral, ie. diabetes, cancer, heart disease?   

The fact is that chiropractic does work for some things, ie. back pain, neck pain, etc.  There is not alot of evidence that it works other conditions.  I can refer you to a very recent study that recommends chiropractic for acute back pain over other treatments.

Recommendation  #7: ...clinicians should consider the addition of nonpharmacologic therapy with proven benefits—for acute low back pain, spinal manipulation;

Spinal manipulation was also recommended for chronic back pain as well.  Spinal manipulation is largely done by chiropractors (>90%) and has been shown to be safer than over the counter medication.

This study was done by MD's, not DC's (chiropractors) so it is a rather unbiased look at what Dr's should do for back pain based on the research. 

 It is not a study on subluxation however.  That is a topic that is very broad and the simple answer to your question about the theory of subluxation is yes and no.  There are certainly plenty of very plausible theories and studies as to how the function and global position of the spine affect the nervous system and how the increased sympathetic activity affects the end organs.  This type of research is being done and is very promising I believe.  Check out the work of Harrison at idealspine.com.   He is a DC, PhD, etc. etc.  I think he has degrees in math and engineering as well.  He is a published author, he has been published in Spine a few times.  Spine is the most prestigious peer reviewed journal in this area.

Anyway, Harrison does alot of interesting things and shows that there is an Ideal spinal model (published in Spine) and that when the spine is at variance with the normal (just like there are norms for BP, Temp, etc.) there are ill effects on the body such as accelerated arthritis or DDD, pain, and possible even visceral effects (via the effect on the Symp NS).  

Good luck in your search for the answers, the more you learn the more you dont know and the more you need to find out.

Why do you ask btw?

ps.  Short leg length is very real, despite what your local naysayer may tell you.  Lay on a bed and have someone else check for you, check them.  Its pretty apprent and you dont have to be scientific to see it.  An Xray can also help.

 If you have a short leg (I do) you may either have a functional problem of the SI joint, an anatomical short leg, either the tibia or the femur may be shorter than the other leg, or some other problem like excessive pronation of the foot.  Short legs exist just like short arms, deviated septums, bad teeth,  unequal foot or hand size, or unequal breast size.  

The question is whether or not it is of clincical value.  That is a difficult thing to say.  If your house was not level would that be important to you?  If your tires are out of alignment is that important to you?  It all depends by how much and what is causing it.  It is a hard thing to say over the internet.  You can buy a really cheap heel lift and try it out see if it helps.  I have a short leg and it doesnt bother me at all.  I may not be sensitive to the effects, who knows.

Remember: only beautiful people dont have short legs!  Maybe you dont have a short leg, you might just have one long leg.


How can i balance my studies and still be a super mom?


I am a single mother who studies medicine. Does anyone have any advice on how i can balance having a toddler and still get time to study?Everyone says pick your fights, but how do i know which ones to pick?
----------

I really only study after my 2 1/2 year old is in bed. Sometimes on the weekends I will take him to the park and I will study there if it's nice out. My mom takes him overnight 1 night a week so that helps and then once in a while I will ask my dad to sit with him or we will go sit at his house while I study then I'm still with him but my dad can chase him around for a while which he doesnt mind. I also study during his naps and rather than cooking dinner every night I sometimes cook everything during his nap on either saturday or sunday for the whole week and freeze it. Stuff like that. My son loves to help so i will also go to a disney site on my laptop while I'm studying and let him click buttons even though he doesnt know what he's doing or let him watch an educational tv show. I give my son a lot of choices so there arent too many battles. He always gets to choose between 2 oufits or 2 different dinner options and hes satisfied with that and sometimes it takes him 45 minutes to pick which is just more time for me to do other things.


How do I find out about infertility studies that I can participate in, in my area?


Any advice on where and how to find some kind of infertility studies that are for women ttc that I could possibly participate in, in my area?  I searched the web, but can't find a thing.
