Multiple Sclerosis, Relapsing-Remitting: The most common clinical variant of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, characterized by recurrent acute exacerbations of neurologic dysfunction followed by partial or complete recovery. Common clinical manifestations include loss of visual (see OPTIC NEURITIS), motor, sensory, or bladder function. Acute episodes of demyelination may occur at any site in the central nervous system, and commonly involve the optic nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, and cerebellum. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)Multiple Sclerosis: An autoimmune disorder mainly affecting young adults and characterized by destruction of myelin in the central nervous system. Pathologic findings include multiple sharply demarcated areas of demyelination throughout the white matter of the central nervous system. Clinical manifestations include visual loss, extra-ocular movement disorders, paresthesias, loss of sensation, weakness, dysarthria, spasticity, ataxia, and bladder dysfunction. The usual pattern is one of recurrent attacks followed by partial recovery (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, RELAPSING-REMITTING), but acute fulminating and chronic progressive forms (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE) also occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p903)Neurology: A medical specialty concerned with the study of the structures, functions, and diseases of the nervous system.Headache: The symptom of PAIN in the cranial region.

Ulcerations may form in atherosclerotic plaques and induce THROMBUS formation. Platelet or cholesterol emboli may arise from stenotic carotid lesions and induce a TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENT; or temporary blindness (AMAUROSIS FUGAX). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp 822-3)Carotid Arteries: Either of the two principal arteries on both sides of the neck that supply blood to the head and neck; each divides into two branches, the internal carotid artery and the external carotid artery.Carotid Artery Diseases: Pathological conditions involving the CAROTID ARTERIES, including the common, internal, and external carotid arteries. ATHEROSCLEROSIS and TRAUMA are relatively frequent causes of carotid artery pathology.Endarterectomy, Carotid: The excision of the thickened, atheromatous tunica intima of a carotid artery.Carotid Artery, Internal: Branch of the common carotid artery which supplies the anterior part of the brain, the eye and its appendages, the forehead and nose.Stents: Devices that provide support for tubular structures that are being anastomosed or for body cavities during skin grafting.Atrial Fibrillation: Abnormal cardiac rhythm that is characterized by rapid, uncoordinated firing of electrical impulses in the upper chambers of the heart (HEART ATRIA). In such case, blood cannot be effectively pumped into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES). It is caused by abnormal impulse generation.Atrioventricular Node: A small nodular mass of specialized muscle fibers located in the interatrial septum near the opening of the coronary sinus. It gives rise to the atrioventricular bundle of the conduction system of the heart.Pacemaker, Artificial: A device designed to stimulate, by electric impulses, contraction of the heart muscles. It may be temporary (external) or permanent (internal or internal-external).Heart Atria: The chambers of the heart, to which the BLOOD returns from the circulation.Algorithms: A procedure consisting of a sequence of algebraic formulas and/or logical steps to calculate or determine a given task.Cardiac Pacing, Artificial: Regulation of the rate of contraction of the heart muscles by an artificial pacemaker.Equipment Failure: Failure of equipment to perform to standard. The failure may be due to defects or improper use.Resuscitation: The restoration to life or consciousness of one apparently dead. (Dorland, 27th ed)Fetal Hypoxia: Deficient oxygenation of FETAL BLOOD.Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation: The artificial substitution of heart and lung action as indicated for HEART ARREST resulting from electric shock, DROWNING, respiratory arrest, or other causes. The two major components of cardiopulmonary resuscitation are artificial ventilation (RESPIRATION, ARTIFICIAL) and closed-chest CARDIAC MASSAGE.Asphyxia Neonatorum: Respiratory failure in the newborn. (Dorland, 27th ed)Neonatology: A subspecialty of Pediatrics concerned with the newborn infant.Infant, Newborn: An infant during the first month after birth.Heart Rate: The number of times the HEART VENTRICLES contract per unit of time, usually per minute.Medicine, Chinese Traditional: A system of traditional medicine which is based on the beliefs and practices of the Chinese culture.Yin-Yang: In Chinese philosophy and religion, two principles, one negative, dark, and feminine (yin) and one positive, bright, and masculine (yang), from whose interaction all things are produced and all things are dissolved. As a concept the two polar elements referred originally to the shady and sunny sides of a valley or a hill but it developed into the relationship of any contrasting pair: those specified above (female-male, etc.) as well as cold-hot, wet-dry, weak-strong, etc. It is not a distinct system of thought by itself but permeates Chinese life and thought. A balance of yin and yang is essential to health. A deficiency of either principle can manifest as disease. (Encyclopedia Americana)Drugs, Chinese Herbal: Chinese herbal or plant extracts which are used as drugs to treat diseases or promote general well-being. The concept does not include synthesized compounds manufactured in China.Hong Kong: The former British crown colony located off the southeast coast of China, comprised of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, and New Territories. The three sites were ceded to the British by the Chinese respectively in 1841, 1860, and 1898. Hong Kong reverted to China in July 1997. The name represents the Cantonese pronunciation of the Chinese xianggang, fragrant port, from xiang, perfume and gang, port or harbor, with reference to its currents sweetened by fresh water from a river west of it.Acupuncture Points: Designated locations along nerves or organ meridians for inserting acupuncture needles.Kidney Failure, Chronic: The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.Acupuncture Therapy: Treatment of disease by inserting needles along specific pathways or meridians. The placement varies with the disease being treated. It is sometimes used in conjunction with heat, moxibustion, acupressure, or electric stimulation.Electronic Mail: Messages between computer users via COMPUTER COMMUNICATION NETWORKS. This feature duplicates most of the features of paper mail, such as forwarding, multiple copies, and attachments of images and other file types, but with a speed advantage. The term also refers to an individual message sent in this way.Science: The study of natural phenomena by observation, measurement, and experimentation.Syncope: A transient loss of consciousness and postural tone caused by diminished blood flow to the brain (i.e., BRAIN ISCHEMIA).

  • Mr Cai Xunyuan, a visiting scholar of the SCM Clinical Division at HKBU, conducted a clinical observation of 33 patients attending HKBU's Chinese medicine clinics for treatment of CRF from March 2013 to August 2017. (
  • 1,2 Patients with tandem ICA/MCA lesions have similar clinical presentations and neurological severity compared with isolated MCA occlusion. (
  • Rates of change for the two metrics were obtained using linear mixed models, categorized according to pre-established cut-offs, and analyzed according to the severity of the disease. (
  • Information from Bottiger LE, Svedberg CA. Normal erythrocyte sedimentation rate and age. (
  • examples include fibrinogen, which contributes to the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and C-reactive protein (CRP). (
  • This review evaluates the diagnostic accuracy of individual rating scales and validated single items for screening of RBD and the role and accuracy of available clinical, electrophysiological, imaging, and tissue biomarkers in predicting the phenoconversion from iRBD to clinically manifest synucleinopathies. (
  • However, it is difficult to interpret the clinical importance of changes from baseline on this scale (such as a 1- or 2-point change). (
  • Baseline geographic atrophy (GA) area has been shown to correlate with GA progression rate. (
  • The predictive value of baseline perimeter as an alternative measure of progression rate has not been reported to date. (
  • Using R software (v3.3.2) under R Studio, matrix correlations were conducted to assess GA progression rate at Year 1 and 2 as a function of GA baseline area, GACI and perimeter. (
  • On the other hand, our analysis demonstrated strong correlation between baseline GA perimeter and lesion progression rate. (
  • A non-statistically significant difference in favor of adalimumab was seen in the percentage of patients using oral corticosteroids at baseline who discontinued corticosteroids and were in clinical remission*** at week 52. (
  • Leigh A. Humphries, from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and colleagues conducted a systematic literature search to identify studies that compared clinical pregnancy rates and live birth rates for more than 2 racial and/or ethnic groups after non-donor IVF cycles. (
  • Based on the 5 US registry-based studies, black, Hispanic, and Asian women had lower clinical pregnancy rates and/or live birth rates after IVF, compared with white women. (
  • They also improved efficiencies during the vitrification process and communicated to patients the benefits of single embryo transfers - consequently their multiple pregnancy rate reduced. (
  • Thus, we investigated whether the clearance rate of plasma EBV DNA as well as pretreatment plasma EBV DNA levels and various other clinicopathologic factors could serve as an early predictive marker for NPC patients with metastatic/recurrent diseases. (
  • While RBD may be associated with disorders like narcolepsy, focal brain lesions, and encephalitis, idiopathic RBD (iRBD) may convert to Parkinson's disease (PD) and other synucleinopathies in more than 80% of patients and it is to date the most specific clinical prodromal marker of PD. (
  • To investigate the prognostic effect of the concentrations and clearance rates of plasma EBV DNA in metastatic/recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). (
  • 9449 Australian clinical medical practitioners, comprising 3515 general practitioners and GP registrars, 3875 specialists, 1171 hospital non-specialists and 888 specialists in training. (
  • Insulin Detemir Versus Insulin Glargine in the Hospital: Do Hypoglycemia Rates Differ? (
  • hospital admission IRR per unit change in GP/ nurse consultation rate = 1.02, 95% CI [0.99 to 1. 0.98, 95% CI [0.94 to 1. (
  • In Zambia clinical observations indicate that cryptococcal meningitis is now the commonest cause of meningitis in adults patients presenting to the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka. (
  • The changes in the CR wait time, mean number of hospital visits post-discharge, and participation rates at 1 and 3 months were investigated. (
