In 2021, data from global disease monitoring and infection surveillance programs have shown that vaccination programs have reduced the incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection and hospitalization and mortality rates. Currently, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identifies a fully vaccinated individual as being ≥14 days after the completion of all the recommended doses of a COVID-19 vaccine that has been authorized by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). A partially vaccinate...
BACKGROUND This study aimed to compare the effects of myotherapy using sublingual relaxation splints and stretching exercises in 110 patients with myofascial pain with and without self-reported sleep bruxism using The Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (RDC/TMD) Axis I Questionnaire. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study involved 110 patients with myofascial pain. The diagnosis was based on the RDC/TMD questionnaire. The number of painful muscle sites (PMS) and the range of ma...

BACKGROUND Moxibustion therapy has been found to ameliorate clinical symptoms of functional dyspepsia (FD). We aimed to examine the regulatory effect of moxibustion on the gastrointestinal (GI) motility in FD and explore the underlying mechanism based on the hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated cation channel 1 (HCN1). MATERIAL AND METHODS Moxibustion therapy was used in FD rats induced by using classic tail-pinch and irregular feeding. Weight gain and food intake were recorded we...

BACKGROUND The main cause of death in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with portal hypertension is esophageal and gastric variceal bleeding caused by severe portal hypertension; therefore, the treatment of portal hypertension is particularly important to prolong the survival of patients. The therapeutic efficacy and safety of transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) combined with a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) for HCC with esophageal and gastric variceal bleedin...

BACKGROUND Intraoperative intact parathyroid hormone (IO-iPTH) monitoring has not reached a consensus in predicting surgical outcomes of secondary hyperparathyroidism. Here, we explore the predictive effect of IO-iPTH monitoring on surgical outcomes of secondary hyperparathyroidism as a potentially effective standard. MATERIAL AND METHODS We enrolled 119 patients who underwent total parathyroidectomy with autotransplantation from January 2016 to August 2019. Intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) lev...

BACKGROUND Gliomas are primary aggressive brain tumors with poor prognoses. Oxidative stress plays a crucial role in the tumorigenesis and drug resistance of gliomas. The aim of the present study was to use integrated bioinformatics analyses to evaluate the prognostic value of oxidative stress-related genes (OSRGs) in glioma. MATERIAL AND METHODS Disease- and prognosis-associated OSRGs were identified using microarray and clinical data from the Chinese Glioma Genome Atlas database. Functional en...

BACKGROUND This biomechanics study of the lower limbs aimed to compare the use of the International Society of Biomechanics Six-Degrees-of-Freedom (ISB-6DOF) model and the conventional gait model (CGM), formerly known as the Helen Hayes model, in 20 male sprinters who habitually used the forefoot (FF) or rearfoot (RF) strike modes. MATERIAL AND METHODS We used a motion capture system to compare the difference in lower-extremity joint mechanics between sprinters' forefoot or rearfoot strike mode ...

BACKGROUND The use of monoclonal antibodies therapy (MAT) in early mild to moderate Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has gained importance in recent times. However, there is limited information on the safety and efficacy of MAT in treating COVID-19 in patients with underlying rheumatologic diseases. Patients with rheumatologic diseases are usually on long-term corticosteroids and immunosuppressive therapy, which increases their risk for progressing to more severe forms of COVID-19. We report ...
