Dupuytren's Contracture: An Evidence Based Review.

Dupuytren's contracture, a benign condition characterized by fibrosis of the palmar and digital fascia, may be a debilitating condition that limits daily function. Several techniques exist for managing symptomatic contractures of the hand related to Dupuytren's. These techniques include the more invasive open fasciotomy or fasciectomy. More recently, less invasive techniques including administration of collagenase Clostridium histolyticum (CCH) or percutaneous needle aponeurotomy (PNA) have become part of t...

Ca Induced orientation of tandem collagen binding domains from clostridial collagenase ColG permits two opposing functions of collagen fibril formation and retardation.

To penetrate host tissues, histotoxic clostridia secrete virulence factors including enzymes to hydrolyze extracellular matrix. Clostridium histolyticum, recently renamed as Hathewaya histolytica, produces two classes of collagenase (ColG and ColH). The high-speed AFM study showed that ColG collagenase moves unidirectionally to plane collagen fibril and re-bundles fibril when stalled [1]. The structural explanation of the roles for the tandem collagen-binding segment (CBDs) is illuminated by its calcium-bou...

Using Placebo Beverages in Group Alcohol Studies.

Placebo beverage conditions remain a key element in the methodological toolkit for alcohol researchers interested in evaluating pharmacological and nonpharmacological factors influencing the effects of alcohol consumption. While interest in experimentally examining alcohol in social context is on the rise, there has been little research examining the effectiveness of placebo manipulations in group settings, when just one suspicious participant could potentially jeopardize the effect of the placebo on group ...

Current status of probiotics usage for the prevention of a first episode of Clostridium difficile infection.

Antibiotics are among the most prescribed medications worldwide and they may cause an imbalance of the gut microbiota. At the same time, the incidence of Clostridium difficile diarrhea is increasing, with significant morbidity and mortality. Probiotics are living microorganisms, bacteria or yeasts, claimed to provide health benefits when ingested in sufficient quantity. Restoration of the gut microbiota has been evaluated as a means of preventing Clostridium difficile infection. The purpose of this article ...

A short essay on the spirituality of placebo from an (evolutionary) psychiatric perspective.

Different to spirituality, the placebo-effect is well operationalized. Against this background, an attempt is made to look at a possible phenomenological relationship between the therapeutic effectiveness of spirituality and placebo. Similar context influences as well as the possible common use of a phylogenetically well conserved protective route via the mesolimbic dopaminergic reward system are highlighted. For both phenomena, the clinical effectiveness seems to be ubiquitous, with that of the placebo eff...

The C-terminal segment of collagenase in binds collagen to enhance collagenolysis.

The collagenase secreted by strain 1706B is a 74 kDa protein that consists of two parts: the catalytic module and a C-terminal segment that includes the bacterial pre-peptidase C-terminal domain. Here, we produced a recombinant C-terminal segment protein and examined its ability to bind collagen and other characteristics as compared with collagen-binding domains (CBDs) derived from () collagenases; these CBDs are the only ones thus far identified in bacterial collagenases. We found that the C-terminal se...

A Novel Strategy to Identify Placebo Responders: Prediction Index of Clinical and Biological Markers in the EMBARC Trial.

One in three clinical trial patients with major depressive disorder report symptomatic improvement with placebo. Strategies to mitigate the effect of placebo responses have focused on modifying study design with variable success. Identifying and excluding or controlling for individuals with a high likelihood of responding to placebo may improve clinical trial efficiency and avoid unnecessary medication trials.

Placebo and nocebo responses in other movement disorders besides Parkinson's disease: How much do we know?

Among movement disorders and medicine in general, PD is one of the conditions for which there is a greater knowledge of the placebo and nocebo responses. In other movement disorders, the knowledge of placebo and nocebo responses is less. An advance in this field is expected to contribute to a better understanding of the nature of a therapeutic benefit in clinical research and clinical practice, and mechanisms of placebo and nocebo. We conducted a review on placebo and nocebo responses in other movement diso...
