Sir, recurrent idiopathic aphtosous stomatitis (RIAS) is a frequent disorder that induces a marked alteration of the quality of life of affected individuals. Thalidomide is the only treatment that demonstrated its efficacy in a multicenter placebo controlled trial. However, the use of thalidomide is limited by its side-effects and it is usually reserved for the most severe cases.
The identification of AQP4-IgG, a specific and pathogenic antibody of NMO/SD has led to a broadening of the clinical spectrum of manifestations of NMO/SD including the presence of encephalic symptoms. Lesions are often distributed on peri‑ependymal area and sometimes affected the diencephalon leading to sleep disorders. We report a case of hypersomnia with polysomnographic documentation during the first attack of NMO/SD. Brain MRI revealed bilateral hypothalamic lesions around the third ventricle, whereas...
To examine the epidemiology and key demographic and clinical correlates of patient-reported hypersomnia in persons with advanced age.
Hypersomnia is common in psychiatric disorders, yet there are few self-report measures that adequately characterize this sleep disturbance. The objective of this study was to validate the Hypersomnia Severity Index (HSI), a tool designed to measure severity, distress and impairment of hypersomnia in psychiatric populations. Psychometric properties were evaluated in an undergraduate Scale Development sample (N = 381) and two psychiatric Scale Validation samples: euthymic bipolar participants with a range...
Evidence exists that placebo effects may influence hormone secretion. However, only few studies examined placebo effects in the endocrine system, including oxytocin placebo effects. We studied whether it is possible to trigger oxytocin placebo effects using a classical conditioning paradigm.
Acute exacerbation during the course of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis causes a poor prognosis. Coagulation abnormalities and endothelial damage are involved in its pathogenesis. Thrombomodulin alfa, a recombinant human soluble thrombomodulin, has anticoagulant and anti-inflammatory effects. Several clinical studies have shown that thrombomodulin alfa may improve survival of acute exacerbation.
Interest in the placebo effect of medicines has developed from the use of placebo treatments as controls in clinical trials into a whole new area of research around how placebos fit into a psychosocial model of therapeutics. The large placebo effect associated with cough medicines is both a problem and an opportunity for researchers: a problem for clinical trials on new actives as the active must beat the large placebo effect, and an opportunity for harnessing the placebo effect to produce effective cough m...
Previous randomized controlled trials have demonstrated the efficacy of antifibrinolytic agents in the reduction of intraoperative blood loss in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) surgery. Tranexamic acid (TXA) was found to be more effective at reducing total blood loss compared with epsilon-aminocaproic acid (AM) than placebo. We set out to study whether or not the level 1 evidence can be corroborated in a large multicenter, multisurgeon cohort.
This study assessed baseline cardiovascular (CV) risk factors, concomitant CV medication use, risk of major adverse cardiac events-plus (MACE-plus), and bleeding adverse events (AEs) in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) in three randomized, placebo-controlled phase III trials of pirfenidone.
One of the most important reasons for failure of placebo-controlled randomized controlled clinical trials (RCTs) is the lack of appropriate methodologies for detecting treatment effect (TE = difference between placebo and active treatment response) in presence of excessively low/high levels of placebo response. Although, the higher the level of placebo response in a trial, the lower the apparent detectable TE. TE is usually estimated in a conventional analysis of a RCT as an 'apparent' TE value conditional ...
A placebo drug is defined as a treatment without any specific pharmacological efficacy, that works when the patient thinks to receive an active treatment, through a psychological and physiological mechanism. This study aimed to evaluate the use of placebo in French hospitals, in Polyvalent Medicine units. A questionnaire comprising 15 items was sent to 372 units. The analysis of 153 responses was conducted from dynamic crosstabs in Excel and using the R software available online. The survey confirmed that ...
Placebo treatments even if known to the patient to be placebo, so-called "open label placebo," may be effective in reducing chronic painThe effects of the extent of placebo education are poorly understood WHAT THIS ARTICLE TELLS US THAT IS NEW: Using a well-characterized electrical pain sensitization model in human volunteers, the effects of short versus detailed placebo educational protocols were measuredOpen label placebo treatment reduced pain sensitization in the volunteers, but the extent of placebo ed...
Usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) pattern is the histologic marker of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), but usefulness of ancillary histologic findings may discriminate idiopathic from secondary UIP.
To determine whether electronic bladder diaries are associated with a larger placebo effect than paper diaries in studies of overactive bladder (OAB). To identify any other factors in study design that may influence the placebo effect.
An unpleasant context (bitter aftertaste) is able to reduce the late positive potential (LPP) elicited by affective pictures. This study attempted to influence this context with a placebo. Sixty-eight women were randomly assigned to three groups: Water, Bitter/No-Placebo, Bitter/Placebo. Participants in the 'bitter groups' first rinsed their mouth with wormwood tea that caused a bitter aftertaste. Subsequently, the placebo group received sham light therapy on the tongue to 'reduce the sensitivity of the tas...
Early score fluctuation in double-blind, placebo-controlled studies may affect the reliability of the baseline measurement and adversely affect the eventual study outcome. We examined the effect of early score fluctuation during a 2-week double-blind placebo lead-in period in a phase II, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of adjunctive s-adenosyl methionine (MSI-195) in MDD subjects who had had an inadequate response to ongoing antidepressant treatment. The overall study failed to meet its specified end...
The aim of this study was to conduct a radiopathologic evaluation of right-angled traction bronchiectasis to differentiate idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) without honeycombing from idiopathic nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP).
Placebo effects are considered to be learning phenomena. There is a growing body of evidence supporting the role of both classical conditioning and observational learning in the induction of placebo effects. However, the third basic learning process, operant conditioning, was not considered as a mechanism of placebo effects until very recently. Unlike classically conditioned responses, which are induced by stimuli that precede the behavior, operant behaviors are shaped and maintained by their consequences. ...
In this article I offer a defence of the use of deceptive placebos-inert treatments like sugar pills or saline injections-in clinical practice. In particular, I will defend what I call the ideal placebo case-where a doctor or nurse has good reason to believe that a deceptive placebo offers a patient's best, or only, chance of some therapeutic benefit. Taking a Kantian approach to the question of clinical placebo use, I examine the Kantian prohibition on deception as interference with the will of a rational ...
A better understanding of placebo responses and the specific factors influencing these outcomes is important for clinical trial design. We investigated the magnitude of placebo responses at 3 months and the potential factors influencing these outcomes in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) clinical trials.
At least 300,000 people with idiopathic Parkinson's disease are living in Germany. Due to the demographic change the number of affected patients is expected to increase continuously. This article presents the evidence-based diagnostics and therapy of idiopathic Parkinson's disease. It provides an overview especially on new findings and developments in recent years.
Positive and negative expectancies drive behavioral and neurobiological placebo and nocebo effects which in turn can have profound effects on patient improvement or worsening. However, expectations of events and outcomes are often not met in daily life and clinical practice. It is currently unknown how this affects placebo and nocebo effects. We have demonstrated that the violation of expectancies, such as when a discrepancy between what is expected and what is actually presented, reduces both placebo and n...
Pericarditis is the most common form of pericardial disease and may be associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Management of idiopathic pericarditis includes pharmacologic therapies, non-pharmacologic therapies, and surgery. This article describes the diagnosis and management of idiopathic causes of pericarditis, incorporating recommendations included in the European Society of Cardiology guidelines.
Research over the past 15 years on the placebo effect has substantiated its contribution to the efficacy of established treatments for a range of clinical conditions and identified its underlying mechanisms. There is also evidence that placebo effects contribute to the performance benefits of many ergogenic aids, and that performance can worsen when dummy treatments are associated with expectations of a harmful outcome (i.e., the nocebo effect). Unfortunately, the bulk of sport research involving placebos a...
In therapeutic trials for acute viral bronchiolitis, consistent clinical improvement in groups that received nebulized normal saline (NS) as placebo raises the question of whether nebulized NS acts as a treatment rather than a placebo.
