Single blind, randomised controlled trial of pelvic floor exercises, electrical stimulation, vaginal cones, and no treatment in management of genuine stress incontinence in women. (1/3693)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effect of pelvic floor exercises, electrical stimulation, vaginal cones, and no treatment for genuine stress incontinence. DESIGN: Stratified, single blind, randomised controlled trial. SETTING: Multicentre. PARTICIPANTS: 107 women with clinically and urodynamically proved genuine stress incontinence. Mean (range) age was 49.5 (24-70) years, and mean (range) duration of symptoms 10.8 (1-45) years. INTERVENTIONS: Pelvic floor exercise (n=25) comprised 8-12 contractions 3 times a day and exercise in groups with skilled physical therapists once a week. The electrical stimulation group (n=25) used vaginal intermittent stimulation with the MS 106 Twin at 50 Hz 30 minutes a day. The vaginal cones group (n=27) used cones for 20 minutes a day. The untreated control group (n=30) was offered the use of a continence guard. Muscle strength was measured by vaginal squeeze pressure once a month. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Pad test with standardised bladder volume, and self report of severity. RESULTS: Improvement in muscle strength was significantly greater (P=0.03) after pelvic floor exercises (11.0 cm H2O (95% confidence interval 7.7 to 14.3) before v 19.2 cm H2O (15.3 to 23.1) after) than either electrical stimulation (14.8 cm H2O (10. 9 to 18.7) v 18.6 cm H2O (13.3 to 23.9)) or vaginal cones (11.8 cm H2O (8.5 to 15.1) v 15.4 cm H2O (11.1 to 19.7)). Reduction in leakage on pad test was greater in the exercise group (-30.2 g; -43. 3 to 16.9) than in the electrical stimulation group (-7.4 g; -20.9 to 6.1) and the vaginal cones group (-14.7 g; -27.6 to -1.8). On completion of the trial one participant in the control group, 14 in the pelvic floor exercise group, three in the electrical stimulation group, and two in the vaginal cones group no longer considered themselves as having a problem. CONCLUSION: Training of the pelvic floor muscles is superior to electrical stimulation and vaginal cones in the treatment of genuine stress incontinence.  (+info)

A single-blind, placebo-controlled trial of a simple acupuncture treatment in the cessation of smoking. (2/3693)

BACKGROUND: Tobacco smoking is a major cause of preventable disease and premature death. Physicians should play an active role in the control of smoking by encouraging cessation and helping the smoker to choose the most suitable aid to cessation. AIM: To evaluate a simple, ear acupuncture treatment for the cessation of smoking. METHOD: Randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 78 currently smoking volunteers from the general public. Volunteers attended an acupuncture clinic in a general practice setting and were given a single treatment of electroacupuncture using two needles at either an active or a placebo site plus self-retained ear seeds for two weeks. The major outcome measure was biochemically validated total cessation of smoking at six months. RESULTS: A total of 12.5% of the active treatment group compared with 0% of the placebo group ceased smoking at six months (P = 0.055, 95% confidence interval -0.033 to 0.323). CONCLUSION: This simple ear electroacupuncture treatment was significantly more effective in helping volunteers to quit smoking than placebo treatment.  (+info)

Role of dexamethasone dosage in combination with 5-HT3 antagonists for prophylaxis of acute chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. (3/3693)

Dexamethasone (20 mg) or its equivalent in combination with 5-HT3 antagonists appears to be the gold-standard dose for antiemetic prophylaxis. Additional to concerns about the use of corticosteroids with respect to enhanced tumour growth or impaired killing of the tumour cells, there is evidence that high-dosage dexamethasone impairs the control of delayed nausea and emesis, whereas lower doses appear more beneficial. To come closer to the most adequate dose, we started a prospective, single-blind, randomized trial investigating additional dosage of 8 or 20 mg dexamethasone to tropisetron (Navoban), a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, in cis-platinum-containing chemotherapy. After an interim analysis of 121 courses of chemotherapy in 69 patients, we have been unable to detect major differences between both treatment alternatives. High-dose dexamethasone (20 mg) had no advantage over medium-dose dexamethasone with respect to objective and subjective parameters of acute and delayed nausea and vomiting. In relation to concerns about the use of corticosteroids in non-haematological cancer chemotherapy, we suggest that 8 mg or its equivalent should be used in combination with 5-HT3 antagonists until further research proves otherwise.  (+info)

Effect of magnetic field exposure on anchorage-independent growth of a promoter-sensitive mouse epidermal cell line (JB6). (4/3693)

The anchorage-independent growth of mouse epidermal cells (JB6) exposed to 60-Hz magnetic fields (MF) was investigated. Promotion-responsive JB6 cells were suspended in agar (10(4)cells/plate) and exposed continuously to 0.10 or 0.96 mT, 60-Hz magnetic fields for 10-14 days, with or without concurrent treatment with the tumor promoter tetradecanoylphorbol acetate (TPA). Exposures to MF were conducted in a manner such that the experimenter was blind to the treatment group of the cells. At the end of the exposure period, the anchorage-independent growth of JB6 cells on soft agar was examined by counting the number of colonies larger than 60 microm (minimum of 60 cells). The use of a combined treatment of the cells with both MF and TPA was to provide an internal positive control to estimate the success of the assay and to allow evaluation of co-promotion. Statistical analysis was performed by a randomized block design analysis of variance to examine both the effect of TPA treatment (alone and in combination with MF exposure) and the effect of intra-assay variability. Transformation frequency of JB6 cells displayed a dose-dependent response to increasing concentrations of TPA. Coexposure of cells to both TPA and 0.10 or 0.96 mT, 60-Hz MF did not result in any differences in transformation frequency for any TPA concentrations tested (0-1 ng/ml). These data indicate that exposure to a 0.10 or 0.96 mT, 60-Hz MF does not act as a promoter or co-promoter in promotion-sensitive JB6 cell anchorage-independent growth.  (+info)

Airway inflammatory response to ozone in subjects with different asthma severity. (5/3693)

The aim of this study was to evaluate whether ozone exposure induces a similar airway inflammatory response in subjects with different degrees of asthma severity. Two groups of asthmatic subjects were studied: seven with intermittent mild asthma not requiring regular treatment (group A); and seven with persistent mild asthma requiring regular treatment with inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting beta2-agonists (group B). All subjects were exposed, in a randomized cross-over design, to air or O3 (0.26 parts per million (ppm) for 2 h with intermittent exercise); subjects in group B withdrew from regular treatment 72 h before each exposure. Before the exposure, and 1 and 2 h after the beginning of the exposure they performed a pulmonary function test, and a questionnaire was completed to obtain a total symptom score (TSS). Six hours after the end of the exposure, hypertonic saline (HS) sputum induction was conducted. Sputum cell percentages, eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) and interleukin (IL)-8 concentrations in the sputum supernatant were measured. TSS significantly increased and forced vital capacity (FVC) and forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) significantly decreased after O3 exposure in comparison with air exposure in group A, whereas no changes were observed in group B except for a significant decrement of FEV1 2 h after the beginning of O3 exposure. Sputum neutrophil percentage was significantly higher after O3 exposure than after air exposure in both groups (Group A: 70.2% (28-87) versus 26.6% (8.6-73.2); Group B: 62.1% (25-82.4) versus 27.9% (14.4-54)). IL-8 was higher in sputum supernatant collected 6 h after O3 exposure than after air, only in group A. No change due to O3 has been found in sputum eosinophil percentage and ECP concentration in both groups. In conclusion, the degree of airway response to a short-term exposure to ozone is different in subjects with asthma of different severity. The available data do not allow elucidation of whether this difference depends on the severity of the disease or on the regular anti-inflammatory treatment.  (+info)

The contribution of the swallowed fraction of an inhaled dose of salmeterol to it systemic effects. (6/3693)

Salmeterol is approximately eight times as potent as salbutamol for systemic effects. This may be because the drug is eight times more potent on receptors or there may be differences in systemic bioavailability. The systemic effects of salbutamol are limited by its fairly high first-pass metabolism, but the oral bioavailability of salmeterol is unknown. The contribution of the swallowed fraction of an inhaled dose of salmeterol to its systemic effects were analysed in a randomized, double-blind, crossover study. Twelve healthy subjects were given inhaled salmeterol 400 microg, inhaled salmeterol 400 microg plus oral activated charcoal or inhaled placebo plus oral activated charcoal on three separate days. Cardiac frequency (fC), Q-T interval corrected for heart rate (QTc), plasma potassium and glucose concentrations were measured for 4 h following the inhaled drug. Salmeterol with and without oral charcoal produced significant changes for all measures compared to placebo. The magnitude of effect following salmeterol alone was significantly greater than that following salmeterol plus charcoal for fC and glucose (mean (95% confidence interval) differences 8 (2-13) beats x min(-1), 0.59 (0.04, 1.13) mmol x L(-1), respectively) and nonsignificantly greater for QTc interval and potassium concentration. The differences between salmeterol given with and without charcoal suggest that 28-36% of the systemic response to salmeterol administered from a metered-dose inhaler are due to drug absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Thus, most of the systemic effects are due to the inhaled fraction of the drug.  (+info)

Effects of duodenal distension on antropyloroduodenal pressures and perception are modified by hyperglycemia. (7/3693)

Marked hyperglycemia (blood glucose approximately 15 mmol/l) affects gastrointestinal motor function and modulates the perception of gastrointestinal sensations. The aims of this study were to evaluate the effects of mild hyperglycemia on the perception of, and motor responses to, duodenal distension. Paired studies were done in nine healthy volunteers, during euglycemia ( approximately 4 mmol/l) and mild hyperglycemia ( approximately 10 mmol/l), in randomized order, using a crossover design. Antropyloroduodenal pressures were recorded with a manometric, sleeve-side hole assembly, and proximal duodenal distensions were performed with a flaccid bag. Intrabag volumes were increased at 4-ml increments from 12 to 48 ml, each distension lasting for 2.5 min and separated by 10 min. Perception of the distensions and sensations of fullness, nausea, and hunger were evaluated. Perceptions of distension (P < 0.001) and fullness (P < 0.05) were greater and hunger less (P < 0.001) during hyperglycemia compared with euglycemia. Proximal duodenal distension stimulated pyloric tone (P < 0.01), isolated pyloric pressure waves (P < 0.01), and duodenal pressure waves (P < 0.01). Compared with euglycemia, hyperglycemia was associated with increases in pyloric tone (P < 0.001), the frequency (P < 0.05) and amplitude (P < 0.01) of isolated pyloric pressure waves, and the frequency of duodenal pressure waves (P < 0.001) in response to duodenal distension. Duodenal compliance was less (P < 0.05) during hyperglycemia compared with euglycemia, but this did not account for the effects of hyperglycemia on perception. We conclude that both the perception of, and stimulation of pyloric and duodenal pressures by, duodenal distension are increased by mild hyperglycemia. These observations are consistent with the concept that the blood glucose concentration plays a role in the regulation of gastrointestinal motility and sensation.  (+info)

Physiological changes in blood glucose do not affect gastric compliance and perception in normal subjects. (8/3693)

Marked hyperglycemia (blood glucose approximately 14 mmol/l) slows gastric emptying and affects the perception of sensations arising from the gut. Elevation of blood glucose within the physiological range also slows gastric emptying. This study aimed to determine whether physiological changes in blood glucose affect proximal gastric compliance and/or the perception of gastric distension in the fasting state. Paired studies were conducted in 10 fasting healthy volunteers. On a single day, isovolumetric and isobaric distensions of the proximal stomach were performed using an electronic barostat while the blood glucose concentration was maintained at 4 and 9 mmol/l in random order. Sensations were quantified using visual analog scales. The blood glucose concentration had no effect on the pressure-volume relationship during either isovolumetric or isobaric distensions or the perception of gastric distension. At both blood glucose concentrations, the perceptions of fullness, nausea, bloating, and abdominal discomfort, but not hunger or desire to eat, were related to intrabag volume (P +info)

Background: Based on the available long-term results of cardiac stem cell therapies, it seems, that it offers short-term moderate benefits, but the long-term outcome is still matter of debate. In 2008, the Austrian arm of the MYSTAR study (a prospective multi-center single-blind trial) including patients with recent AMI and treated with combined (intramyocardial and intracoronary) delivery of autologous BM-MNCs has been completed with 1-year FUP. The MYSTAR results showed moderate but significant improvement in infarct size and LV function similar to other trials, and confirmed safety, feasibility and efficacy of BMC treatment in AMI patients. The patients enrolled in the study reach the 5 to 8 years FUP at 2011, raising the question whether the combined delivery of autologous BM-MNCs results in a long-term benefit for these patients.. Aim of the study: To investigate the long-term, 5 years clinical outcome of patients enrolled into the MYSTAR study.. Study design: Prospective non-randomized ...

# 161 Scoliosis Classification and Specific Exercises Scoliosis affects up to 5% of the population. That means 5 out of every 100 patients a therapist treats will have scoliosis. In addition, more patients with scoliosis will complain of back pain than those without scoliosis. It can be theorized that an even higher population of patients with scoliosis will present to a therapist for back pain. Few therapists have received training to recognize and classify scoliosis both clinically or with imaging and do not incorporate a scoliosis specific treatment plan into their plan of care. This workshop will teach therapists how to clinically classify scoliosis and incorporate scoliosis specific exercises into a plan of care. Information is applicable to all ages of children and adults.Participants will take home a skill set they can start using the next Monday they return to clinic as well as a solid base to further their exploration of a scoliosis specific exercises.

Transcranial anodal stimulation (tDCS) improves manual dexterity in healthy old adults. The underlying changes in finger force behavior for this improved dexterity have not been reported. Here, we investigated the effects of tDCS (20-min) over primary motor cortex (M1) combined with repeated practice on the Grooved pegboard test (tDCS+MP) on the fingertip forces applied to an object during grasp and manipulation. Eight right-handed able-bodied individuals (60-85 years) participated in a sham-controlled, single-blinded study. Each participant received anodal and sham intervention in two sessions at least 5-day apart. Before and after intervention, they performed a key-slot task that required inserting a slot on an object onto a stationary bar, an isometric force production task using a pinch grip, and the Grooved pegboard test. Anodal relative to sham tDCS+MP allowed participants to better retain the improved performance on the pegboard test. For the isometric task, anodal tDCS+MP significantly ...

Eight right-handed able-bodied individuals (60-85 years) participated in a sham-controlled, single-blinded study. Each participant received anodal and sham intervention in two sessions at least 5-day apart. Before and after intervention, they performed a key-slot task that required inserting a slot on an object onto a stationary bar, an isometric force production task using a pinch grip, and the Grooved pegboard test. Anodal relative to sham tDCS+MP allowed participants to better retain the improved performance on the pegboard test. For the isometric task, anodal tDCS+MP significantly ...
Context: Neural mobilization is commonly used in sports, and previous studies have suggested that it has a positive impact on lower-limb flexibility and performance. However, studies exploring the effect of neural mobilization dosage are almost nonexistent. Objectives: This study aimed to assess whether 2 distinct dosages of neural gliding mobilization (4 and 8 sets of 10 repetitions) impact the flexibility and performance of both the mobilized and nonmobilized lower limb in basketball athletes differently. Design: Randomized, parallel, and single-blinded study. Setting: Amateur and professional basketball clubs. Participants: Fifty-two basketball athletes (40 men and 12 women), who were distributed into 2 groups; one received 40 (n = 28) and the other 80 repetitions (n = 24) of neural gliding mobilization. Intervention: Neural gliding mobilization applied to a single limb (the dominant limb). Main Outcome Measures: Knee extension angle for hamstring flexibility; hop tests and single-leg ...
Felix, Craig imagines my point totally accurately! Encouraged by this research, timoptic ocudose cost which confirmed the rationale for oral L-citrulline supplementation as a donor for the L-arginine/NO pathway in patients with ED, researchers in the Department of Urology at the University of Foggia, Foggia, Italy, conducted a single-blind trial, in which 24 men with mild ED (erection hardness score of 3), mean age 565 years, received a placebo for 1 month and L-citrulline, 15 g/d in 2 doses, for another month? Both standing and supine blood pressure are reduced following administration of lisinopril, timoptic ocudose cost and although symptomatic hypotension is rare, it occurs more commonly in patients who are hypovolemic or hyponatremicThe mechanism by which lisinopril improves the outcome following an acute MI involves reduced peripheral vascular resistance, improved perfusion and a direct action on the myocardium. People develop herpetic whitlow when they come into contact with areas ...
We included randomised clinical trials with blinded and non-blinded assessment of the same binary outcome. We excluded trials where it was unclear which group was experimental and which was control as such trials would not allow us to determine the direction of any bias; trials in which only a subgroup of patients had been evaluated by blinded and non-blinded assessors, unless they were selected at random; trials in which blinded and non-blinded assessors had access to each others results (for example, blinded assessments were provided to non-blinded assessors as a quality enhancement procedure); and trials where initially blinded assessors clearly had become unblinded-for example, when radiographs showed ceramic material indicative of the experimental intervention. Finally, we excluded trials with blinded end point committees adjudicating the assessments made by non-blinded clinicians because such adjudication often involves previous knowledge of the non-blinded assessment or is restricted to ...
Summary-Among more than half of patients with heart failure who have a preserved ejection fraction, treatment is largely empirical and predominately focused on the cardiovascular phenotype. A majority of patients with heart failure who have a preserved ejection fraction are older adult women with hypertension and several other comorbidities, including obesity, renal dysfunction, diabetes mellitus, and anemia, among others. Whether treating these comorbidities will have clinical benefits has been suggested but as yet has not been subject to rigorous study. Accordingly, we conducted a prospective, randomized, single-blind clinical trial of treating anemia with epoetin alfa in older adults with heart failure who have a preserved ejection fraction. The trial recruited an older adult cohort (mean age, ,75 years), predominately women (67%) with multiple comorbidities (including chronic pain and depression), which mimics what is seen in community-based studies of heart failure, but has, until now, not ...

Knowing which muscles you will call upon to complete any specific exercise - as a start I would recommend - Strength Training Anatomy by Frederic Delavier. If you are serious about getting fit and avoiding crippling injury you need to focus on this information. When you know what muscles you will be using then you can test them by targeting with specific exercises. By following this slow and progressive approach you will often discover major deficiencies in particular muscles. Once safely identified you can then focus on strengthening these weaker muscles before progressing onto complex exercises that call upon many individual muscles and groups.. Whenever you start a new exercise no matter it it is body weight like pull-ups, dips or push-ups or machine or free weights start with low number of repetitions and or low weight. You need to focus completely on the way the exercise is using your muscles. Be tuned to any pull or strain while carrying out an exercise and listen to your body ...
Zapper-V2 AUTOMATIC has three operational cycles with duration of 61 minutes. It is divided by two pauses of 20 minutes each. 7-minute session - 20-minute pause - 7-minute session - 20-minute pause - 7-minute session. The device automatically proceeds to each subsequent cycle (session) while beeping and showing you with its indicators when you should grab it again.. After the end of each session, the device beeps and automatically pauses. The indicator pauses for 20 minutes. During the pause, you should leave the device away.. When it is time for the next cycle, it will signal once again and the indicator would proceed to the next cycle. Zapper -V2 AUTOMATIC would not start the next cycle until you catch it once again. During the 7-minute sessions, if you need to let go of it, it would stop automatically and will start from where you stopped. While going through the whole session, it will signal you with beeps and will automatically switch off.. Instead of short summary of operating the machine ...

The Sea Tribes Olrich was that characters only repaint save for the standard black version. Its OK. While the others have little details that just bring them so much life, Olrich has a black suit of armor, purple skin, and some gold around his eyes while the eyes remain unpainted. Less was done here, and it shows - you get a swell clear purple dorsal fin, and the armor looks good, but its decidedly un-orca-like in how he sits on your desk. Blackfish, he is not.. With no weapons and sort of blah deco, hes the sets main shortcoming. Perhaps clear black skin and purple armor would have been cooler, but I guess well never know will we? He has little problems standing and is the same basic buck as everybody else - you know what kind of movement youre going to get, and he looks slightly more interesting than the single blind box burst beasts.

Background: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is among the most common gastrointestinal disorders, and a substantial proportion of patients have an insufficient response to treatment. In a single-blinded study, sacral nerve modulation (SNM) significantly reduced symptoms of IBS. The aim of the present double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled study was to evaluate the effect of SNM for IBS. Methods: We included patients with diarrhea-predominant or mixed IBS and a minimum baseline IBS-specific symptom score of 40 points (Gastrointestinal Symptom Rating Scale-IBS version). Patients underwent a 6-week period of SNM. In the first 4 weeks, the patients were randomized 1:1 to have the neurostimulator set subsensory or OFF for 2 weeks and then the opposite for another 2 weeks. Patients and investigators were blinded to settings. In the remaining 2 weeks, the stimulation was set suprasensory. IBS-specific symptoms and quality of life were assessed with validated questionnaires and bowel diaries. Key ...
Superior target lesion primary patency at 12 months with the IN.PACT AV DCB versus standard angioplasty, new data show. In addition to Holden, Robert Lookstein (Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, USA) and Hiroaki Haruguchi (Haruguchi Vascular Access Clinic, Tokyo, Japan) are principal investigators of the IN.PACT AV Access investigational device exemption (IDE) study, which evaluated the IN.PACT AV DCB versus PTA.. They conducted a global, prospective, 29-centre, 1:1 randomised, single-blinded study evaluating the safety and effectiveness of DCB angioplasty versus PTA in dysfunctional AVF, following 330 patients out to five years. Each patient enrolled in the study had lesions up to 10cm in length in the native AVF.. The primary safety outcome was measured by the serious adverse event rate involving the AVF access within 30 days of the procedure. The primary effectiveness outcome was defined as freedom from clinically-driven target lesion revascularisation (CD-TLR) or access ...
This is a multi-center single-blinded study evaluating the effectiveness of a rigid TLSO for the treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. The study began as a randomized controlled trial; however, low enrollment in the randomized group caused a shift in the study design to allow patients who chose a specific treatment to be followed and included here. A successful outcome was defined as skeletal maturity without curve progression to 50 degrees or more. The combined group had a success rate of 72% compared to 48% success in the observation group. This study also included data from temperature sensors used to monitor time spent in the orthosis. There was a high correlation of successful outcomes to the time spent in the orthosis. The large disparity between success rates in treatment and observation groups along with the significant dose response to bracing led the researchers to terminate the study early. The researchers concluded that brace wear significantly decreases progression of ...
The present randomized, placebo-controlled, single-blind trial demonstrates that 4 weeks of treatment with rosiglitazone reduces inflammatory cell composition and cell activation in carotid artery specimen of nondiabetic patients. Moreover, rosiglitazone increased collagen content in the plaque, suggesting that TZD treatment renders these plaques more stable and less vulnerable.. Previous studies have shown that TZDs exhibit antiinflammatory and antiatherogenic properties in vascular cells in vitro, and data from animal models of arteriosclerosis demonstrated a reduction in lesion development on TZD treatment.8 Moreover, clinical studies have shown that TZDs reduce serum levels of inflammatory arteriosclerosis markers in treated patients11,12,22 and induce beneficial morphological changes in the vessel wall by reducing IMT of the carotid artery13 as well as neointima formation after coronary stent implantation.15,16 The present study extends our knowledge on the effect of TZDs in the vessel wall ...

Barker-Collo and colleagues (2009) evaluated the effectiveness of Attention Process Training (APT) in improving attention and broader outcomes in stroke survivors 6 months after stroke. In this single-blinded clinical trial, 78 stroke survivors were randomized to receive either APT or standard rehabilitative care. The participants were evaluated in four aspects of attention: sustained, selective, divided, and alternating, as well as the auditory and visual aspects of attention. The study participants were randomly assigned to receive standard care plus up to 30 hours of APT or standard care alone. At 6 months the participants who had APT had an average improvement of 2.49 standard deviations higher than the standard care participants on full-scale attention scores. The researchers acknowledged that APT appears to be a viable and effective means of improving attention deficits in stoke victims, but cautioned that further studies with larger samples and longer follow-up periods are needed to ...
A randomized, single-blinded, placebo-controlled trial was performed on 25 subjects: 17 subjects received ATG (2.5 mg/kg intravenously) followed by pegylated G-CSF (6 mg subcutaneously every 2 weeks for 6 doses) and 8 subjects received placebo. The primary outcome was the 1-year change in AUC C-peptide following a 2-hour mixed-meal tolerance test (MMTT). At baseline, the age (mean ± SD) was 24.6 ± 10 years; mean BMI was 25.4 ± 5.2 kg/m2; mean A1c was 6.5% ± 1.1%; insulin use was 0.31 ± 0.22 units/kg/d; and length of diagnosis was 1 ± 0.5 years.. ...
Blinding (masking): in an experimental study, refers to whether patients, clinicians providing an intervention, people assessing outcomes, and/or data analysts were aware or unaware of the group to which patients were assigned. In the design section of Evidence-Based Nursing abstracts of treatment studies, the study is identified as blinded, with specification of who was blinded; unblinded, if all parties were aware of patients group assignments; or blinded (unclear) if the authors did not report or provide us with an indication of who was aware or unaware of patients group assignments.. Concealment of randomisation: concealment of rando-misation is specified in the design section of Evidence-Based Nursing abstracts of treatment studies as follows: allocation concealed (deemed to have taken adequate measures to conceal allocation to study group assignments from those responsible for assessing patients for entry in the trial [ie, central randomisation; sequentially numbered, opaque, sealed ...
