Methods of Early Detection and Grading Of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (MEDON)

2019-09-11 01:53:34 | BioPortfolio


MEDON aims to examine new methods for early detection and grading of diabetic peripheral neuropathy focusing on both small- and large nerve fibers. Furthermore, MEDON aims to describe differences between people with classic diabetic peripheral neuropathy and those with painful diabetic neuropathy.

Effects of Aerobic Exercise on Vibration Perception Threshold in Type 2 Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Population Using 3-sites Method: Single-blind Randomized Controlled Trial.

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of 8 wk of moderate intensity aerobic exercise on vibration perception threshold (VPT) in type 2 diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN).

Punishing the Self: Posttraumatic Guilt mediates the link between trauma and deficient pain modulation.

Trauma survivors may suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), elevated posttraumatic guilt (PG), and alterations in the pain system. However, the association between PG and alterations in pai...

Mechanisms of injury-induced axon degeneration.

Injury-induced axon degeneration in model organisms and cell culture has emerged as an area of growing interest due to its experimental tractability and to the promise of identifying conserved mechani...

Pathology-preserving intensity standardization framework for multi-institutional FLAIR MRI datasets.

Fluid-Attenuated Inversion Recovery (FLAIR) MRI are used by physicians to analyze white matter lesions (WML) of the brain, which are related to neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia and vascular...

Does exercise prescription based on estimated heart rate training zones exceed the ventilatory anaerobic threshold in patients with coronary heart disease undergoing usual-care cardiovascular rehabilitation? A United Kingdom perspective.

In the United Kingdom (UK), exercise intensity is prescribed from a fixed percentage range (% heart rate reserve (%HRR)) in cardiac rehabilitation programmes. We aimed to determine the accuracy of thi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

First segment of axon that connects distal axon segments to the neuronal CELL BODY at the axon hillock region. The axon initial segment is not protected by the MYELIN SHEATH and has properties critical for axonal growth. The axon initial segment and the axon hillock form an axonal trigger zone.

Degeneration of distal aspects of a nerve axon following injury to the cell body or proximal portion of the axon. The process is characterized by fragmentation of the axon and its MYELIN SHEATH.

Process of organizing neighboring AXONS into a bundle or a fascicle during neurite outgrowth mediated by CELL ADHESION MOLECULES.

The smallest difference which can be discriminated between two stimuli or one which is barely above the threshold.

The oxygen consumption level above which aerobic energy production is supplemented by anaerobic mechanisms during exercise, resulting in a sustained increase in lactate concentration and metabolic acidosis. The anaerobic threshold is affected by factors that modify oxygen delivery to the tissues; it is low in patients with heart disease. Methods of measurement include direct measure of lactate concentration, direct measurement of bicarbonate concentration, and gas exchange measurements.
