Abstract: OBJECTIVE: To evaluate and compare the effectiveness of three different noninvasive treatment techniques on fat mass and regional fat thickness of the patients with cellulites. METHODS: Sixty subjects were randomized into three groups. Group 1 (n = 20) treated with mechanical massage (MM), group 2 (n = 20) treated with manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) and group 3 (n = 20) treated with connective tissue manipulation (CTM) techniques. Subjects were evaluated by using standardized photographs, body composition analyzer (TBF 300) (body weight (BW), body mass index (BMI), fat %, fat mass (FM), fat free mass (FFM), total body water (TBW)), circumference measurement from thigh, waist-hip ratio (WHR), fat thickness measurements from abdomen, suprailium and thigh regions with skin fold caliper. RESULTS: All groups had an improvement in thinning of the subcutaneous fat after the treatment (P<0.05). Thigh circumference decreased by an average of 0.5 cm in all groups and thigh fat thickness decreased 1.66 mm in Group 1, 2.21 mm in Group 2 and 3.03 mm in Group 3. Abdomen and suprailium fat thicknesses decreased 2.4 and 2.58 mm in Group 1, 1.78 and 2 mm in Group 2 and 1.23 and 0.64 mm in Group 3, respectively. The mean difference in waist-hip ratio was 0.1 cm in all groups. CONCLUSION: All the treatment techniques are effective in decreasing the regional fat values of the patients with cellulites.

Manual lymphatic drainage in management of edema in a case with CRPS: why the(y) wait?

Abstract Title: Manual lymphatic drainage in management of edema in a case with CRPS: why the(y) wait? Abstract Source: Rheumatol Int. 2009 Oct 13. Epub 2009 Oct 13. PMID: 19823831 Abstract Author(s): Ismail Safaz, Fatih Tok, Mehmet Ali Taşkaynatan, Ahmet Ozgul Article Affiliation: Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, GATA TSK Rehabilitasyon Merkezi, 06530, Bilkent Ankara, Turkey. Abstract: Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a disorder characterized by pain, edema, skin color changes and autonomic abnormalities. Its treatment is quite difficult and in most of the patients effective results cannot be reached. Manual lymphatic drainage is a very rare method for managing limb edema in CRPS. In this case report, the dramatic response of an excessive edema to lymphatic drainage was discussed in a CRPS patient. Article Published Date : Oct 13, 2009

Cerebrospinal fluid stasis and its clinical significance. 📎

Abstract Title: Cerebrospinal fluid stasis and its clinical significance. Abstract Source: Altern Ther Health Med. 2009 May-Jun;15(3):54-60. PMID: 19472865 Abstract Author(s): James M Whedon, Donald Glassey Article Affiliation: The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice in Lebanon, New Hampshire, USA. Abstract: We hypothesize that stasis of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) occurs commonly and is detrimental to health. Physiologic factors affecting the normal circulation of CSF include cardiovascular, respiratory, and vasomotor influences. The CSF maintains the electrolytic environment of the central nervous system (CNS), influences systemic acid-base balance, serves as a medium for the supply of nutrients to neuronal and glial cells, functions as a lymphatic system for the CNS by removing the waste products of cellular metabolism, and transports hormones, neurotransmitters, releasing factors, and other neuropeptides throughout the CNS. Physiologic impedance or cessation of CSF flow may occur commonly in the absence of degenerative changes or pathology and may compromise the normal physiologic functions of the CSF. CSF appears to be particularly prone to stasis within the spinal canal. CSF stasis may be associated with adverse mechanical cord tension, vertebral subluxation syndrome, reduced cranial rhythmic impulse, and restricted respiratory function. Increased sympathetic tone, facilitated spinal segments, dural tension, and decreased CSF flow have been described as closely related aspects of an overall pattern of structural and energetic dysfunction in the axial skeleton and CNS. Therapies directed at affecting CSF flow include osteopathic care (especially cranial manipulation), craniosacral therapy, chiropractic adjustment of the spine and cranium, Network Care (formerly Network Chiropractic), massage therapy (including lymphatic drainage techniques), yoga, therapeutic breath-work, and cerebrospinal fluid technique. Further investigation into the nature and causation of CSF stasis, its potential effects upon human health, and effective therapies for its correction is warranted.

Inhibitory effect of microRNA-455-5p on biological functions of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma Eca109 cells via Rab31.

Related Articles Inhibitory effect of microRNA-455-5p on biological functions of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma Eca109 cells via Rab31. Exp Ther Med. 2018 Dec;16(6):4959-4966 Authors: Liu Y, Tang Y, Li P Abstract The aim of the present study was to examine microRNA (miRNA or miR)-455-5p expression in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) at the tissue and cellular levels in order to elucidate its biological roles. A total of 60 patients with ESCC were enrolled in the present study and reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction was used to measure the expression of miR-455-5p. ESCC Eca109 cells were transfected with miR-NC, miR-455-5p mimics or inhibitor and a Cell Counting Kit-8 assay was used to assess proliferation. To investigate the migration and invasion abilities of Eca109 cells, Transwell and Matrigel assays were performed. Western blotting was employed to measure Rab31 protein expression, while a rescue assay was utilized to study the biological roles of miR-455-5p and Rab31 in Eca109 cells. To determine whether Rab31 is a direct target of miR-455-5p, a dual luciferase reporter assay was performed. The results revealed that miR-455-5p expression was decreased in ESCC tissues and was negatively correlated with metastasis and pathogenesis. In vitro overexpression of miR-455-5p inhibited the proliferation, migration and invasion of ESCC Eca109 cells. Furthermore, miR-455-5p regulated the expression of Rab31 protein in Eca109 cells. Rab31 overexpression promoted the proliferation, migration and invasion of Eca109 cells. Luciferase reporter assay results revealed that miR-455-5p is able to bind with the 3'-untranslated region of Rab31 mRNA to regulate its expression. In summary, the results of the present study suggest that miR-455-5p expression is decreased in ESCC tissues and is miR-455-5p is negatively correlated with lymphatic metastasis and differentiation. As a tumor-suppressor gene, miR-455-5p inhibits the proliferation, migration and invasion of ESCC Eca109 cells by suppressing the expression of Rab31. PMID: 30542452 [PubMed]
