Effect of pamidronate administration on bone in patients with acute spinal cord injury. (1/12)

Eleven subjects participated in a prospective placebo-controlled trial to address the efficacy of pamidronate in reducing bone loss in persons with acute spinal cord injury (SCI). We administered pamidronate (treatment) or normal saline (placebo) intravenously at baseline (22 to 65 days after injury) and sequentially over 12 months, with follow-up at 18 and 24 months. Regional bone mineral density (BMD) was lost over time, regardless of group. In the treatment group compared with the placebo group, we noted a mild early reduction in loss of total leg BMD. Significant bone loss from baseline occurred earlier in the placebo group at the regional sites than in the treatment group. However, by the end of the treatment and follow-up phases, both groups demonstrated a similar percent bone loss from baseline. Despite an early reduction in bone loss, pamidronate failed to prevent major, long-term bone loss in persons with acute neurologically complete SCI.  (+info)

By stepwise regression analysis, in the twins with SCI, leg fat mass was found to be the single most significant predictor of leg BMD or BMC (F = 12.01, r2= 0.76, P = 0.008; F = 50.87, r2= 0.86, P < 0.0001). In the able-bodied twins, leg lean mass correlated with leg BMD and BMC (r2= 0.58, P = 0.01; r2= 0.87, P = 0.0001). By use of within-pair differences, significant correlations were found for leg lean mass loss with leg BMD loss (r2= 0.56, P = 0.01) or leg BMC loss (r2= 0.64, P = 0.0005). In conclusion, in twins with SCI, significant correlations were observed between fat mass and leg BMD or BMC as well as between serum estradiol values and leg BMD. The magnitude of the leg muscle mass loss was correlated with the magnitude of bone loss.  (+info)

Inhibition of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase prevents inflammatory bone destruction. (3/12)

Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathways are implicated in joint destruction in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) by modulating the production and functions of inflammatory cytokines. Although p38 MAPK (p38) participates in signaling cascades leading to osteolysis in arthritis, the mechanisms of its action in this process remain incompletely understood. Here, we found that the osteoclast (Ocl) precursors expressed p38alpha, but not p38beta, p38delta, and p38gamma isoforms. Treatment of these cells with receptor activator of nuclear factor (NF)-kappaB ligand (RANKL) resulted in p38 activation. Importantly, Ocl development induced by RANKL or RANKL and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha was blocked with the novel p38 inhibitor 4-(3-(4-chlorophenyl)-5-(1-methylpiperidin-4-yl)-1H-pyrazol-4-yl)pyrimidine (SC-409). To validate in vitro data, p38 role was further investigated in streptococcal cell wall (SCW)-induced arthritis in rats. We found that SCW-induced joint swelling and bone destruction were attenuated by SC-409. Mechanistically, the data show that SCW-stimulated DNA binding activity of the transcription factor myocyte-enhancing factor 2 C, which is downstream of p38, was inhibited by SC-409. In addition, SC-409 inhibited SCW-stimulated expression of numerous factors, including TNF-alpha, interleukin-1beta, and RANKL. Although c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase and NF-kappaB pathways were activated in vitro by RANKL and in vivo by SCW, SC-409 had no significant effect on these pathways. In conclusion, our data show that p38 modulates the production and signaling of cytokines, thus providing a mechanism of the bone-sparing effect of SC-409 in rat arthritis. These data present SC-409 as a novel potent p38 inhibitor and suggest that p38-based therapies may be beneficial in preventing bone loss associated with RA.  (+info)

A complementary method for the detection of osteoblastic metastases on digitized radiographs. (4/12)

PURPOSE: This study was conducted to evaluate the diagnostic usefulness of gray level parameters in order to distinguish healthy bone from osteoblastic metastases on digitized radiographs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Skeletal radiographs of healthy bone (n = 144) and osteoblastic metastases (n = 35) were digitized using pixels 0.175 mm in size and 4,096 gray levels. We obtained an optimized healthy bone classification to compare with pathological bone: cortical, trabecular, and flat bone. The osteoblastic metastases (OM) were classified in nonflat and flat bone. These radiological images were analyzed by using a computerized method. The parameters (gray scale) calculated were: mean, standard deviation, and coefficient of variation (MGL, SDGL, and CVGL, respectively) based on gray level histogram analysis. Diagnostic utility was quantified by measurement of parameters on healthy and pathological bone, yielding quantification of area under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve, AUC. RESULTS: All three image parameters showed high and significant values of AUC when comparing healthy trabecular bone and nonflat bone OM, showing MGL the best discriminatory ability (0.97). As for flat bones, MGL showed no ability to distinguish between healthy and flat bone OM (0.50). This could be achieved by using SDGL or CVGL, with both showing a similar diagnostic ability (0.85 and 0.83, respectively). CONCLUSION: Our results show that the use of gray level parameters quantify healthy bone and osteoblastic metastases zones on digitized radiographs. This may be helpful as a complementary method for differential diagnosis. Moreover, our method will allow us to study the evolution of osteoblastic metastases under medical treatment.  (+info)

Zebrafish short fin mutations in connexin43 lead to aberrant gap junctional intercellular communication. (5/12)

Mutations in the zebrafish connexin43 (cx43) gene cause the short fin phenotype, indicating that direct cell-cell communication contributes to bone length. Three independently generated cx43 alleles exhibit short segments of variable sizes, suggesting that gap junctional intercellular communication may regulate bone growth. Dye coupling assays showed that all alleles are capable of forming gap junction channels. However, ionic coupling assays revealed allele-specific differences in coupling efficiency and gating. For instance, oocyte pairs expressing the weakest allele exhibited much higher levels of coupling than either of the strong alleles. Therefore, measurable differences in Cx43 function may be correlated with the severity of defects in bone length.  (+info)

Osteosarcoma of limb bones: a clinical, radiological and histopathological diagnostic agreement at Black Lion Teaching Hospital, Ethiopia. (7/12)

OBJECTIVES: To measure the strength of agreement in clinical, radiological and histopathological diagnosis of osteosarcoma in a 5 year study period. SETTING: Addis Ababa University, Black-Lion ('Tikur Anbessa') Hospital-BLH, is the country's highest tertiary level referral and teaching hospital. The departments involved in this study (Radiology, Pathology and Orthopedics) receive referred patients from all over the country. METHODS: All bone tumor patients, presenting to the three departments at BLH between the study period, December, 2003 - March, 2008 were recruited for the study. 51 patients with radiological diagnosis of osteosarcoma of the extremities were identified and their clinical and histopathological diagnoses reviewed in detail. All patients had a clinical examination, plain radiographs and biopsies of the affected part of the extremity. Radiographs of selected difficult cases were discussed at joint orthopedic & radiologic sessions every week. The radiological and histopathological diagnoses made were categorized separately using WHO classification of bone tumors. Strength of agreement between radiological and histopathological diagnoses was measured using Cohen's Kappa test. RESULTS: Of the total of 216 bone tumor patients presented and biopsied in the five year period, fifty one (51) had osteosarcoma of extremity bones. Commonest age affected by osteosarcoma was 16 (7-55 years) and sex ratio was 1:1. Osteosarcoma was also the single most common clinical, radiological and histological diagnosis made. Considering all bone tumors presented together, the study indicated that radiological diagnosis was confirmed by similar histological diagnosis in 172 out 205 cases (84%) and the corresponding Cohen's Kappa value (0.82) showed excellent level of agreement between radiological and histological diagnoses of all bone tumors. The agreement between radiological and histopathological diagnoses of osteosarcoma of the limbs was 84.5%. CONCLUSION: There is an excellent agreement between clinical, radiological and histopathological diagnoses of bone tumors in general and osteosarcoma in particular. In setups where there is limited or no histopathological service, joint clinical and radiological decision could lead to a higher degree of accuracy in diagnosis of bone tumors, especially osteosarcoma. Radiological diagnosis of bone tumors at Black Lion Hospital, Addis Ababa is excellent.  (+info)

Pediatric sports-related lower extremity fractures: hospital length of stay and charges: what is the role of the primary payer? (8/12)

OBJECTIVE: The purposes of this study were (a) to evaluate the distribution by primary payer (public vs. private) of U.S. pediatric patients aged 5-18 years who were hospitalized with a sports-related lower extremity fracture and (b) to discern the adjusted mean hospital length of stay and mean charge per day by payer type. METHODS: Children who were aged 5 to 18 years and had diagnoses of lower extremity fracture and sports-related injury in the 2006 Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project Kids' Inpatient Database were included. Lower extremity fractures are defined as International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification codes 820-829 under Section "Injury and Poisoning (800-999)," while sports-related external cause of injury codes (E-codes) are E886.0, E917.0, and E917.5. Differences in hospital length of stay and cost per day by payer type were assessed via adjusted least square mean analysis. RESULTS: The adjusted mean hospital length of stay was 20% higher for patients with a public payer (2.50 days) versus a private payer (2.08 days). The adjusted mean charge per day differed about 10% by payer type (public, US$7,900; private, US$8,794). CONCLUSIONS: Further research is required to identify factors that are associated with different length of stay and mean charge per day by payer type, and explore whether observed differences in hospital length of stay are the result of private payers enhancing patient care, thereby discharging patients in a more efficient manner.  (+info)

Anemia is the most common hematological abnormality in Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive patients and a significant predictor of its progression to AIDS or death. This study was aimed to assess the prevalence of anemia before and after initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART) among HIV positive patients attending Black Lion Specialized Hospital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A cross sectional study was conducted from January to April, 2017 in Black Lion Specialized Hospital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A total of 255 patients on ART were selected using simple random sampling techniques. Socio-demographic and clinical characteristics of the study subjects were collected using structured questionnaire. Measurements of complete blood cell counts and CD4 + T cell counts were made using Sysmex XT 2000i hematology analyzer and BD FACS Count CD4 analyzer, respectively. Statistical analysis of the data (Chi-square, paired T-test, logistic regression) was done using SPSS version 20. A p-value | 0.05 was
Hematological abnormalities are common in HIV positive patients. Of these, thrombocytopenia is a known complication which has been associated with a variety of bleeding disorders. However, its magnitude and related factors have not been well-characterized in the era of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) in Ethiopia. Therefore, this study aimed to assess the prevalence of thrombocytopenia before and after initiation of HAART among HIV positive patients attending Black Lion Specialized Hospital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A cross sectional study was conducted from February to April 2017 in Black Lion Specialized Hospital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A total of 176 patients on HAART were selected using simple random sampling techniques. Socio-demographic and clinical characteristics of the study patients were collected using structured questionnaire. Measurements of platelet counts and CD4 + T cell counts were made using Sysmex XT 2000i hematology analyzer and BD FACS Count CD4 analyzer, respectively.

The Supremes say that the problem with isolated and purified DNA is that it is not chemically distinct from naturally occurring DNA, like cDNA, but persons of skill in the art recognize their reasoning is wrong. At a minimum, the bonding structure at the ends of the isolated and purified DNA have been inherently and unavoidably changed. Thus, the distinction between cDNA and purified and isolated DNA is a difference of...

While they acknowledge that there wasnt enough evidence for reviewers to look at the differences in exercise modality or doses, authors note that there may also be longer-term benefits of introducing fall prevention exercise habits in people in the general community. They point out that most of the studies reviewed focused on programs that lasted 12 weeks or more, with nearly a third lasting a year or more. These findings highlight the importance of primary prevention, they write.. Even with the definitive conclusion on the overall effectiveness of exercise in falls prevention, authors of the review believe more work should be done to tease out the impact of various exercise programs, though they advise that the studies will need to be very large. They also recommend further research into fall prevention programs in emerging economies where the burden of falls is increasing more rapidly than in high-income countries, and the need to investigate how best to integrate falls prevention ...

To allow a new approach to the Town Hall from Ship Street, a thoroughfare linking the street with Black Lion Street was completed in 1842. Called Prince Albert Street, it sliced through the existing street pattern.. The road was made possible when, in 1836, the Vicar of Brighton, the Reverend Henry Wagner built a new vicarage near Montpelier Road. His old vicarage in Nile Street was acquired by a Quaker, Isaac Bass who offered it to the Town Commissioners. It was demolished in 1837 and in 1842 Bass was paid £800 to demolish 3 houses in Black Lion Street and make the 30 feet wide western half of Prince Albert Street. ...

Introduction the reason of the use of complementary methods for inquiry of patients in medicine is to confirm the diagnosis of an illness, after to have been established a hypothesis based on clinical history and physical examination. These same complementary examinations, can assist the doctor in the choice of the best therapeutical one when the information are trustworthy and its results establish a direct relation of cause-effect in the illness in question. In other words, the indicative clinical signals of the presence of an illness are specific or at least more common for that illness and, when they are abolished by the implemented treatment, they indicate that the illness was cured or that its clinical repercussions had been brightened up. The complementary methods evidence the presence of occult, proper signals of the illness and that they are identified through inquiry methods special. Professor Roy Taylor takes a slightly different approach. In a similar way, the related clinical ...

McPhee turns 11 next week. He had probably his best year since moving back from Alberta in 2001: healthy, fast (but thank goodness gracious not as fast as he used to be), and birdy as hell.

And that Merganser. Tasty. Billy Lawless Siemer got to watch the poor old dogge knock me over after he changed his mind after delivering to me a downed grouse up at Black Lake.

Ngele who remains the only player to have scored the Zebras goal (in open play) at the 2012 edition has endured a rocky affair with the coach.. Not much has been established as to why the affair is in tatters but sources claim that it stretched to a point where Amrouche confronted Ngeles former coaches at Black Leopards to discuss possible options of side-lining him. The idea was to frustrate the player and kill his confidence as the only player Zebras looked up to.. Ngele, under former coach Peter Butler, was named the squad captain but under Amrouche, he has played cameo roles in World Cup and AFCON qualifiers. Ngele has made three appearances and came once as a substitute in all the 10 games Amrouche managed..

X-linked lymphoproliferative disease (XLP) is a condition associated with mutations in the signaling lymphocytic activation molecule (SLAM)-associated protein (SAP; SH2D1A). SAP functions as an adaptor, binding to and recruiting signaling molecules to SLAM family receptors expressed on T and natural killer cells. XLP is associated with extreme sensitivity to primary Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection, often leading to a lethal infectious mononucleosis. To investigate EBV-specific immunity in XLP patients, we studied 5 individuals who had survived EBV infection and found CD8(+) T-cell responses numerically comparable with healthy donors. However, further investigation of in vitro-derived CD8(+) T-cell clones established from 2 of these donors showed they efficiently recognized SLAM ligand-negative target cells expressing EBV antigens, but showed impaired recognition of EBV-transformed, SLAM ligand-positive, lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs). Importantly, LCL recognition was restored when interactions

  • It includes a 3D reconstruction of bones and arteries from angioCT with injection of a contrast agent (iodine), an angiographic view correlated with the 3D view and digital radiography of the skeleton of the lower limb. (
  • We preferred to use an angioCT of the lower limb rather than a digital arteriography because it allowed the user to make a correlation between angiographic views of arteries with three-dimensional structures. (
  • To study the role of transplantation of the vascularized pedicle iliac crest for the repair of bone and soft tissue defect of lower extremity . (
  • The vascularized pedicle iliac crest was designed for the repair of bone and soft tissue defect of lower extremity according to anatomic feature of leg and foot . (
  • The bone and soft tissue defects were repaired, and ultimate function and cosmetic effects were satisfied after the mean follow up of 10 months (ranged from 6 to 15 months). (
  • Transplantation of the vascularized pedicle iliac crest is an ideal method for the repair of bone and soft tissue defect of lower extremity . (
  • Drinkwater B, Bruemner B, Chestnut CH. Menstrual historyas a determinant of current bone density in young athletes. (
  • Adult survivors (n = 629) of either childhood onset osteosarcoma or Ewing's sarcoma, with a primary tumor location in the lower-extremity were identified and contacted via mail to complete an additional questionnaire. (
  • Although several intercalary reconstructions after resection of a lower extremity malignant bone tumor are reported, there are no optimal methods which can provide a long-term reconstruction with fewest complications. (
  • However, when the tumor involves the diaphyseal portion of the bone, an intercalary reconstruction method is required, and this has not been standardized. (
  • Benign bone tumor, cement, demineralized bone matrix. (
  • Among youth soccer players, lower extremity pain is a major problem that could be associated with trunk function. (
  • This study investigated the association between lower extremity pain and trunk pain among youth soccer players. (
  • Lower extremity pain with concomitant trunk pain occurred in 61.8% (42/68). (
  • Trunk pain was associated with lower extremity pain among youth soccer players. (
  • The global market for small bone and joint orthopedic devices has been studied from the perspective of widely used orthopedic devices and number of procedures particularly for upper and lower extremities. (
  • are the major players operating in the small bone and joint orthopedic devices market. (
  • Therefore, in most cases, the resected segment of bone is replaced by a prosthesis, which provides satisfactory results quickly after surgery. (
  • Three non-pharmaceutical approaches have demonstrated high rates of at least temporary T2D diabetes reversal or remission: bariatric surgery, very low calorie diets (VLCD), and nutritional ketosis achieved through carbohydrate restriction ( 8 - 10 ). (
  • We perform bracing, casting, external fixation, and-when necessary-surgery to realign the broken bone to ensure proper healing. (
  • The purpose of this study is to estimate the biomechanical parameters (BPs) of the upper and lower extremities of human body. (
  • What are some of the long bones that are found in the upper and lower extremities? (
  • Medicare will also retain its non-coverage policy for use of HBO therapy as an initial treatment for diabetic ulcers of the lower extremities. (
  • We encourage interested parties to undertake well-designed clinical trials to assess the clinical effectiveness of HBO therapy in other subgroups of diabetic lower extremity ulcers. (
  • While female gender and increasing age were associated with lower RNL scores, the magnitude of difference is of questionable clinical significance. (
  • This application proposes a prospective clinical trial to evaluate the impact of adding a focused physical therapy (PT) intervention to the preoperative regimen of individuals diagnosed with a malignancy of the lower extremity (LE). (
  • [6] The primary anatomical and functional unit of cortical bone is the osteon . (
  • Expandable intramedullary nailing and autologous bone (iliac and/or fibular) grafting were used for the treatment. (
  • In the human body at birth, there are over 270 bones, [1] but many of these fuse together during development, leaving a total of 206 separate bones in the adult, [2] not counting numerous small sesamoid bones . (
  • 0.9), PN (defined as ≥1 insensate area based on monofilament testing), and of any LED (defined as either PAD, PN, or history of foot ulcer or lower-extremity amputations). (
