GlyNAC Improves Many Age-Associated Defects in Older Humans

GlyNAC Improves Many Age-Associated Defects in Older Humans

A randomized, double blind human clinical trial conducted by researchers at Baylor College of Medicine reveals that supplementation with GlyNAC – a combination of glycine and N-acetylcysteine – improves many age-associated defects in older humans and powerfully promotes healthy aging. This is relevant because until now, there have been no solutions toward improving many of …

The Early and Late Postoperative Complications of Pediatric Neuromuscular Scoliosis at King Abdulaziz Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: A Case Series

Background  Neuromuscular Scoliosis (NMS) is defined as “a coronal plane spinal curvature of 10 degrees or more, measured by the Cobb method, in the setting of muscle imbalance secondary to an underlying neuropathic or myopathic disease”. Patients who have the disease usually manifest with diminished balance, asymmetrical seating, abnormal gait, and decreased pulmonary function, which are …

Rehabilitation versus surgical reconstruction for non-acute anterior cruciate ligament injury (ACL SNNAP): a pragmatic randomised controlled trial

Rehabilitation versus surgical reconstruction for non-acute anterior cruciate ligament injury (ACL SNNAP): a pragmatic randomised controlled trial

Summary Background Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture is a common debilitating injury that can cause instability of the knee. We aimed to investigate the best management strategy between reconstructive surgery and non-surgical treatment for patients with a non-acute ACL injury and persistent symptoms of instability. Methods We did a pragmatic, multicentre, superiority, randomised controlled trial …

Off-label prescription of certain medications indicated for hereditary angioedema (HAE) with C1 deficiency to people with other types of angioedema is common, a team of French researchers found. Fewer than 20% of prescriptions for these medications, namely Berinert, Cinryze, Ruconest (conestat alfa), and Firazyr (icatibant), were for HAE patients with C1 deficiency in the team’s …
