  • Feasibility
  • We also propose to examine the safety and feasibility of spinal cord perfusion pressure augmentation with a protocol of IV fluids and inotrope medications versus standard maintenance of mean arterial pressure in subjects who exhibit a decrease in perfusion pressure to less than 75 mmHg. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Parkinson's
  • This same work also has implications for Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, both diseases in which key brain cells stop working properly. (eurekalert.org)
  • During his presentation, Dr. Stupp allowed a rare glimpse into ongoing research with collaborators in Mexico and Canada, showing the impressive visual of mice recovering from the symptoms of Parkinson's disease after being exposed to the bioactive nanostructures developed in Stupp's laboratory at Northwestern University. (eurekalert.org)
  • www.nanotechproject.org/114 "This type of work helps us to see beyond first generation, 'gee-whiz' nanotech applications like better tennis racquets or anti-static fabrics, and reach for an end to human suffering from Parkinson's, heart disease, and even cancer. (eurekalert.org)

  • symptoms
  • Our membership community provides a lifeline for many individuals that are focused on regaining their independence and improving their quality of life--whether they are leaving rehab after sustaining a spinal cord injury, learning to live with symptoms of a spinal cord disorder, or have spent years of frustration coping with disability. (unitedspinal.org)
  • stenosis
  • In a person with a vulnerable bony spine, for example someone with osteoporosis or ankylosing spondylitis, weakness in the supporting structure, such as with rheumatoid arthritis or Down's syndrome, or narrowing of the spinal canal due to spinal stenosis, a minor trauma or injury can result in spinal cord injury. (boneandjointburden.org)
  • Provides care for all aspects of spinal disorders including Sciatica, Herniated Disc, and Lumbar Stenosis. (dmoztools.net)
  • cervical
  • The most significant determinants of the higher total health-care costs are cervical level injury, complete injury, time period (i.e. first year post-injury and end-of-life year), and presence of pressure ulcers. (wingsforlife.com)
  • nerves
  • The spinal nerves branch out from the spinal cord into the tissues of the body. (michiganpva.org)
  • Schwann cell-laden grafts and nerve conduits have shown promise for repairing nervous tissue and optic nerves, as have injections of adult stem cells, but the size and complexity of the spinal cord warrants the development of specialized constructs combining several technologies. (docplayer.net)
  • diabetes
  • Risk factors for CVD and PAD include a family history of heart disease, diabetes, lack of exercise, high blood pressure, and being overweight - especially fat around the mid section. (newmobility.com)
  • prevention
  • These data can be used to develop screening guidelines for early identification and prevention of CMR in SCI, as well as targeted approaches to primary disease management. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • disability
  • Your one stop source for spinal disability evaluations, functional capacity assessments, ask the doctor, scoliosis, spine information, disability facts and business help or check out current news and contact information. (directoryhealthy.com)
  • A British policemen describes his spinal cord injury disability and dealings with the Greater Manchester Police. (dmoztools.net)
  • coronary
  • Unlike current assessments utilizing lipid scores, the new system will be anchored in more reliable measurements of cardiovascular disease (CVD) burden using contemporary surrogate end points of coronary artery calcium (CAC) score, coronary CT angiography and carotid intima media thickness (CIMT). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • burden
  • Information on health-care utilization and the economic burden of disease are essential to understanding service demands, service accessibility, and practice patterns. (wingsforlife.com)
  • Examine the relationships among surrogates of cardiovascular disease burden in persons with SCI and established cardiometabolic risks. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • visits
  • Our teams of architects, advocates, and licensed medical professionals conduct routine site visits to 31 VA Spinal Cord Injury units and Long-term Care Centers to ensure quality care standards are met. (pva.org)
  • Musculoskeletal diseases were diagnosed in 18% of the 1.3 billion health care visits in 2011. (boneandjointburden.org)
  • tissue
  • By injecting molecules that were designed to self-assemble into nanostructures in the spinal tissue, we have been able to rescue and regrow rapidly damaged neurons," said Dr. Stupp at an April 23 session hosted by the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies. (eurekalert.org)
  • The nanofibers - thousands of times thinner than a human hair - are the key to not only preventing the formation of harmful scar tissue which inhibits spinal cord healing, but to stimulating the body into regenerating lost or damaged cells. (eurekalert.org)
  • systematic
  • Even in the later period - 2 years and more - after illness or injury systematic training of medical physical culture in combination with physiotherapy and occupational therapy yielded positive results. (medicalency.com)
