tDCS for Fatigue in Sjogren's Syndrome

2019-10-15 11:11:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Sjogren's Syndrome (SS) is an autoimune disease of unknown etiology characterized by lymphocytic infiltration of the exocrine glands and other organs. patients usually presents with xerophthalmia, xerostomia, fatigue and other symptoms. Fatigue has often been reported as the biggest problem and the most difficult symptom patients have to deal with. Fatigue management in pSS is difficult. However, in other diseases such as Parkinson disease, post-polio syndrome and multiple sclerosis the use of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) has recently been studied and has shown effectiveness. The overarching objective of this study is to examine the effect of a tDCS protocol in patients with pSS.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.

The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.

Measurable changes in activities in the CEREBRAL CORTEX upon a stimulation. A change in cortical excitability as measured by various techniques (e.g., TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION) is associated with brain disorders.

Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.

Application of electric current in treatment without the generation of perceptible heat. It includes electric stimulation of nerves or muscles, passage of current into the body, or use of interrupted current of low intensity to raise the threshold of the skin to pain.
