Laser therapy on the repair of a large-gap transected sciatic nerve in a reinforced nerve conduit

Despite considerable advances in microsurgical techniques, the functional results of peripheral nerve repair remain largely unsatisfactory. Regrowth of nerves across large gaps is particularly challenging, usually requiring a nerve graft to bridge the proximal and distal nerve stumps. The introduction of low-level laser (LLL) in treating peripheral nerve damage has been widely demonstrated. For clinical applicability, LLL makes an important contribution towards the development of a safe and effective strategy for rehabilitating peripheral nerve injuries.

One cystic fibrosis drug may hinder another

Two papers in this issue demonstrate that a cystic fibrosis (CF) drug called ivacaftor, sold under the trade name Kalydeco, can undo the benefits of another type of therapeutic compound used against the disease.

Characterization of Clostridium difficile infection from a tertiary care hospital in China

Recently, Clostridium difficile has beencome a prominent pathogen associated with nosocomial infection. The present study collected 94 Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) cases, and analyzeding the clinical and microbiological features comprehensively. The results indicated that no specific clinical genotype or microbiological features were found in severe cases, and that antimicrobial resistance could be the primary reason for epidemic strains leading to the dissemination and persistence of CDI.

Efficacy of moxifloxacin versus levofloxacin plus metronidazole for CAP with aspiration

This was a prospective, multicenter, open-label, randomized controlled trial. 77Seventy-seven patients of mild-to-moderate CAP with aspiration factors were enrolled and randomly assigned to receive moxifloxacin or levofloxacin plus metronidazole. A total of 23 patients (76.7%) in the moxifloxacin group achieved clinical cure and 15 (51.7%) in the levofloxacin plus metronidazole group (χ2=4.002,P<0.05). Moxifloxacin was effective and safe in treatingment of CAP with aspiration factors, and the monotherapy was more convenient.

Ginkgo biloba treatment enhances neurogenesis and improves recovery following a stroke in mice

Stroke is a fourth leading cause of death and a major cause of long-term disability, which inflicts substantial economic and societal burdens. Drug therapies aimed at post-stroke recovery that can enhance endogenous neurogenesis may help minimize the cost related to prolonged hospital stays and rehabilitation. Ginkgo biloba, a widely studied herbal product for the treatment of neurological disorders, offers endogenous neurogenesis-enhancing properties that hold the promise of providing recovery-improving benefits to stroke patients.

Strategies to preserve myelin during secondary degeneration following neurotrauma

Following injury to the central nervous system, functional loss is exacerbated by spreading damage causing secondary degeneration of surrounding tissue. Using a model of secondary degeneration where the optic nerve is partially transected, has allowed demonstration of oxidative stress and myelin abnormalities in nerve vulnerable to spreading damage. Therapeutic strategies designed to reduce oxidative stress and dysmyelination, including combination of calcium channel inhibitors, prevent the functional loss of secondary degeneration in this model.

Also of interest from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

Using a meta-analytical technique called harmonization, a study finds that prior estimates of life cycle greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generated from shale gas, considering supply chain leakage of 1-6%, are similar to those from conventionally produced natural gas, and that both energy sources emit approximately half the greenhouse gas emissions tied to coal-powered electricity.

Parenting, socioeconomic status, and inflammation in children

Nurturing parents may partially counteract inflammation, an overactivated state of the immune system that underlies many health problems, in children of low socioeconomic status (SES), according to a study. Children of low SES often experience poorer health than children of higher SES at all stages of life, including lower birth weights at infancy, higher rates of obesity and diabetes during childhood, and higher rates of age-related cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Nervous system involvement in asthma

A study in a mouse model of asthma demonstrates that sensory neurons in the lungs are key mediators of airway constrictions characteristic of an acute asthma attack, suggesting a need to develop asthma treatments that target the nervous system rather than only the immune system. People with asthma suffer chronic lung obstructions due to excessive mucus production as well as acute attacks in which allergens can cause airways to constrict.

Appetite suppression relies on histamine neurotransmitter system

Appetite suppression in satiated mice that follows consumption of dietary fats relies on the brain’s histamine neurotransmitter system, according to a study. Feelings of hunger and satiety are regulated by the interplay of food stimuli and neurotransmitter systems within the body.

Southward excursions of Arctic water and transition to Ice Age

Progressive southward advances and retreats of cold Arctic water likely triggered regional cooling and accelerated the transition into the most recent glacial age, a study finds. Prior to the most recent 11,000 years, a time of climatic quiescence that allowed humans to flourish, the last extended warm period on Earth occurred during the interglacial period around 125,000 years ago.
