Angela Lang/CNET As the biggest tech company to throw its hat into the ring, many were eager to learn about the Galaxy Fold when Samsung introduced it at Unpacked in February. Pre-orders began in April and quickly sold out on the first day. Soon after, Samsung hit a snag when a handful of tech reporters documented screen issues like screen breakages, flickering and, bulging with their pre-production review units. Samsung kept pushing the delay from a couple of weeks to months, until it recently announced the Galaxy Fold would be available in September. (For more information, read CNET’s Galaxy Fold FAQ on the matter.)  The phone itself has a secondary 4.6-inch display that serves as its “cover,” with all the usual features you’d expect on a phone. When you’re ready for something bigger, the Fold opens up like a book to a 7.3-inch tablet. The Fold also has six cameras. On the back, there’s the same triple-camera setup as the Galaxy S10 and on the front a single 10-megapixel camera. In tablet form, there are two additional cameras inside: a selfie camera and an 8-megapixel depth camera.   Nubia Alpha wearable smartphone review Now playing: Watch this: Now playing: Watch this: Watch Samsung’s Galaxy Fold stress test 1:02 Motorola: Confirmedmoto-sidebysideImages from a design patent filed by Motorola in 2017. The filing went public in December. Photo illustration by Ian Knighton/CNET Ever since its patent application file went public in December 2017, rumors began circulating that Motorola, which Lenovo acquired in 2014, would resurrect the popular Motorola Razr phone with a folding-screen. Later, a company exec at Motorola confirmed something was coming down the pipeline, likely in the summer.The Razr reboot will supposedly cost $1,500 on Verizon  and leaked renders have leaked online. Refreshing the phone would be a smart move on Motorola. Since its original launch in 2004, the beloved phone has gained an iconic status for its sleek design, thin profile and various color options at the time.  Now playing: Watch this: Royole FlexPai: Available now019-royole-flexpai-phone-ces-2019The Royole Flexpai. Sarah Tew/CNET Developed by a startup headquartered in Fremont, California, the Royole Flexpai was the first flexible phone to debut, in October 2018. The phone has a plastic, 7.8-inch AMOLED screen and it’s already on sale. You’ll pay $1,318 (£1,209) for the 6GB of RAM and 128GB variant. And it’s $1,469 (£1,349) for the 8GB of RAM and 256GB version. (Australian prices weren’t released, but they convert to about AU$2,180 and AU$2,440, respectively.)The FlexPai runs an OS called Water that’s layered on top of Google Android 9.0. Whichever way you choose to hold or bend the device, the screen adjusts to its many different orientations and viewing options. Though rough around the edges when we first got our hands on it, the FlexPai gave us one of the first solid glimpses of what the future of foldable phones will hold. Apple Huawei Mate X is a foldable phone with 5G Now playing: Watch this: #Motorola – #Razr – New Motorola RAZR (2019) leaks out https://t.co/jxoTZuUC9N pic.twitter.com/h2Y0NyCS3q— /LEAKS (@Slashleaks) April 28, 2019 1:56 Will Apple jump on the foldable phone trend? 6:37 reading • Galaxy Fold relaunches in September, but it’s not the only foldable phone coming 2:43 45 Aug 31 • iPhone 11, Apple Watch 5 and more: The final rumors Because of the phone’s novel design, it costs a pretty penny at $1,980 (about £1,500 or AU$2,800). The Fold has what the company calls an Infinity Flex Display, which is a fancy plastic material that can fold. After the reported screen issues, Samsung also reinforced the phone’s design to include things like protection caps for the hinges and additional metal layers.The Fold may also not be the only foldable phone from Samsung. The company is said to be developing two more foldable phones, according to Bloomberg. Citing people familiar with the company’s plans, Bloomberg reported that one phone will fold vertically, while the other will fold inward instead of outwardly like the Fold. With this Galaxy Fold snafu, however,, plans may change for Samsung.Huawei Mate X: Available Septemberhuawei-mate-x-hands-on-mwc-2019-36The Huawei Mate X. Andrew Hoyle/CNET Jumping on the trends of foldable phones and 5G, Huawei’s’s Mate X has both. It has a 6.6-inch display when folded closed and an 8-inch OLED screen when you flip it open. And it features 5G connectivity that’s said to be four times faster than 4G, a 4,500-mAh battery and three rear cameras.Huawei originally planned for the phone to launch in May, but it pushed the release to September. In addition, UK carriers Vodafone and EE said they were pulling the Mate X from their device lineups for their 5G network launches., so the exact fate of the phone is tenuous. Similar to the Fold, the Mate X is also be very pricey at 2,299 euros, or about $2,600, £2,000 or AU$3,660. However, at its MWC 2019 keynote back when Huawei first announced the phone, the company hinted that cheaper models may be coming down the pipeline.It’s unlikely that the Mate X will be available in the US when it launches mid-2019 though. Calling it a security threat to the Department of Defense, the US government banned the sale of Huawei phones on US military bases. Retail giant Best Buy stopped selling them in March 2018 and Huawei’s CFO was arrested in Canada at the request of the US in an act her father said was politically motivated. Huawei devices are still available in more than 170 countries around the world, however, according to a Huawei spokesperson.center_img Galaxy Fold gives foldable phones a black eye Share your voice Now playing: Watch this: Apple: Rumored, with patent applicationapplepatentflexiblephone.jpgAn updated patent by Apple shows various ways it could use a flexible or folding display. Apple/USPTO In February, Apple once again updated its patent application for a clamshell phone with a foldable display and body. The filings have been ongoing since Apple’s first one eight years ago, in 2011. Since then, rumors of a flexible iPhone reignite with every new updated document, which have been filed in 2014, 2016 and 2017.According to the filings, the phone “may have a flexible portion that allows the device to be folded.” But keeping with its usual style, Apple has remained mum on details. So far, nothing has come to fruition with any of these patents in the public eye, and there hasn’t been any info on what this device might be (and if it will even be a phone at all) or a timeline to expect such products. Mobile Tablets Phones Foldable Phones The Galaxy Fold. Angela Lang/CNET Three months after the Galaxy Fold was supposed to launch in April, Samsung confirmed on Wednesday that it fixed the phone’s screen problems and will relaunch the device in September with a slightly new look. But the company isn’t the only the one planning a foldable device. Other phone makers have either announced foldable phones or are rumored to have one in the works. Even despite this rather large blunder from Samsung, the tech industry still has foldable phones on the brain.Foldable phones are poised to transform the tech industry over the next five years, along with 5G. Any foldable phones we will see this year will just hint at what’s to come, as the devices become thinner, do a better job of managing battery life and let mobile apps take advantage of different display sizes. And all of this will develop with the help of Google too, as the company has committed to providing Android support for foldable designs. (Given some of its recent patent filings, it may even release a foldable phone of its own.)True, foldlabe phones are off to a shaky start, and we don’t know yet if Samsung’s relaunch is going to be enough to ease user concerns. But if all 11 companies below follow through with their plans, we are in for an interesting ride. Here are the brands that have announced plans, filed for a patent or are rumored to join the foldable craze. See All 1:54 Google: Prototyping, with patent applicationgoogle-patentGoogle’s patent application included several sketches of a potential foldable device. Google Back in December 2018, the tech giant filed a patent application for a foldable device. The patent is for a “foldable display of a computing device and includes a back stiffening layer, a transparent front-plate layer, a transparent cover window layer, and an OLED display layer disposed between the back stiffening layer and the transparent frontplate layer.” Fast forward later to May when  Google then confirmed that its been prototyping the technology, but didn’t see a clear use case for foldable screens yet. In addition, Google plans to support foldable phones with its Android OS platform to develop the technology from the software side as well.Lenovo’s CPlus concept phone. Jessica Dolcourt/CNET Lenovo: Rumored, with patent applicationAs mentioned before, Lenovo introduced the concept CPlus phone in 2016, which could bend and wrap around your wrist like the Nubia Alpha. While it was just a concept phone back then, Lenovo has been making inroads to release a real foldable phone to the masses. In July 2018 it filed a patent application for a “portable information device” with a “foldable configuration.”LG: Rumoredlg-v50-dual-screen-40The non-bending V50 with its non-bending second-screen attachment. Katie Collins/CNET Back in 2014, LG launched the G Flex, a phone with a curved screen. More recently at CES 2019, it showed off a rollable TV that will be on sale later this year. We know that LG has the technology in the works for a flexible phone and the company is said to be working on one.For now, we have no idea what the phone will look like, how much it will cost or when it will arrive. There were rumors that LG would introduce one at CES, but that turned out to be a false alarm. And later at MWC, LG had an accessory that added a second screen to its LG V50 phone, but unfortunately none of the devices fold.Originally published Jan. 26, 2019, 6:00 a.m. PT.Updates, July 28: Adds September availability of Galaxy Fold.

Shara Tibken/CNET Mostly known for its affordable televisions, Chinese tech company TCL is working on a number of foldable devices, which include two tablets, two phones and a cuff-like phone you wear around your wrist. Despite not being a household name in the US, you may know TCL better through other brands it owns, namely BlackBerry, Alcatel and Palm.The upcoming devices all have flexble AMOLED displays that can bend because of what TCL calls a DragonHinge. Patented by the company, the hinge enables the screens to fold both inward and outward. TCL estimates that its first foldable phone will be available in 2020 and that it could cost less than $1,000 — making it significantly cheaper than the Galaxy Fold.Xiaomi Dual Flex or Mix Flex. Xiaomi Xiaomi Dual Flex or Mix Flex: ConfirmedIn January, Chinese phone maker Xiaomi introduced its new foldable phone on the social media platform Weibo. Unlike previous phones we’ve seen, which have only one bend down the middle, Xiaomi’s phone folds down into thirds, with both sides folding down.Xiaomi co-founder and president Bin Lin said this form factor is “practical and beautiful” and that it “perfectly merges the experience of a tablet and a phone.” No specs or pricing information were given, but Xiaomi is currently taking votes on two possible names: Dual Flex or Mix Flex.Nubia Alpha: Available nownubia-alpha-mwc-2019-6The Nubia Alpha. Patrick Holland/CNET Nubia, an associate company of Chinese phone-maker ZTE, took the  concept of a foldable phone one step further with its Nubia Alpha. The $449 Alpha (£360 and AU$643, converted) is unique in that it’s a phone that wraps around a user’s wrist, similar to a smartwatch. It features a flexible 4.01-inch display, gesture controls and a water-resistant design. Its 5-megapixel camera can also record 10-second videos. However, it’s missing a lot of app support and it doesn’t have Instagram, Google Maps or an internet browser.This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a phone that looks like the Alpha. In 2016, Lenovo had a concept device called CPlus, which had a 4.26-inch display that you bent over your wrist. Unlike the CPlus, the Alpha is a real device you can get now.

first_imgDomestic stock indices fell sharply this week hitting a 19-month low on the back of sell-off in global markets, disappointing corporate earnings, depreciating rupee and a decline in crude oil prices.For the week ended 15 January, 2016, the BSE S&P Sensex tumbled 479.29 points to end at 24,455.04, while the 50-share Nifty closed at 7,437.80, down 163.60 points.”There seems to be no respite to the ongoing downtrend. Indices have lost further ground closing lower by more than 2% this week after plunging nearly 5% in the previous week; both the key indices hit their respective 52-week lows during the week amid weak global cues and weakening Indian currency against the US Dollar,” said Amar Ambani, Head of Research, IIFL.Although the Indian markets seemed to have shrugged off the continued slump in Chinese stock markets during the early trading sessions this week, the indices finally succumbed to global sell-off in later sessions.Chinese stock markets failed to stage a rebound despite the measures by the country’s authorities to shore up the sentiment. The country’s benchmark Shanghai Composite closed over 3% lower this week.Besides, weak economic data in China added to worries over the hard landing of the world’s second largest economy.Meanwhile, on the domestic front, the corporate earnings season opened on a weak note after the revenue growth of India’s largest IT firm Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) for the December quarter missed the analysts’ expectations for the sixth consecutive quarter.Quarterly results from Federal Bank, IndusInd Bank and Hindustan Unilever Ltd (HUL) also disappointed the Street’s expectations.But a silver lining for the markets this week was Infosys’ announcement of upbeat results for the third quarter even as most of the analysts had expected to post a muted growth due to poor seasonal demand. Overall, Infosys shares ended the week about 6% higher compared to 2% fall in the broader markets.”The result season has begun and nothing really in it so far to exude confidence as far as corporate earnings are concerned barring Infosys which delivered better than expected results,” said Ambani.Commodity stocks came under heavy selling pressure due to slowing demand in China. Oil stocks were battered as crude oil plunged to 12-year lows on concerns over impending oil supply from Iran worsening the already oversupplied market.Domestic economic data was a setback for the markets, with Index of Industrial Production (IIP) falling by 3.2% to hit a four-year low in November and retail inflation edging up further in December to 5.6%.The sell-off in equity markets intensified after a resumption of a fall in rupee to two-year low of 67.70 against the US dollar. The rupee had hit a record low of 68.85 in August 2013, when fears over interest rate hike in the US were at peak.last_img read more

first_imgen.wikipedia.orgSumitomo, a Japanese conglomerate, has submitted a bid of Rs 2,238 crore for a three-acre plot at Mumbai’s Bandra-Kurla Complex. Under the deal, an acre of land costs about Rs 745 crore which is the costliest last deal ever in India. The reserve quote for the plot was Rs 3.44 lakh per sqm.According to reports, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) said that Sumitomo was the only bidder for the plot and added that they are processing the bid. The bid is expected to come from Sumitomo’s real estate company trying to invest in rent-yielding office spaces. Investors like Blackstone, Brookfield, GIC and Qatar Investment Authority have poured investments to scale large profits. Mumbai Monorail/MMRDASumitomo has paid an insane price, but it is obvious it wants a presence in a prime commercial enclave like the BKC, reports The Times of India.Sumitomo is allowed to have a built-up area of about 10 lakh sq ft. MMRDA officials have given them permission to use a floor space index (FSI) 4 on the plot.The Japanese giant has plans of building a commercial office complex. Focusing on the angles of economic and business ties with India, Sumitomo is planning to house all its businesses having an Indian footprint under one roof.The Maharashtra government has been trying to manage the BKC area as a commercial hub since 1977. Pointing out at the accessibility of railway tracks, airport and the LBS Marg in the area, the government claims that it is the best location for an alternate centre of business.The largest land deal before Sumitomo’s bid was in 2010 when the Lodha Group bid Rs 4,050 crore for MMRDA’s 6.2-acre plot in Wadala. The break down per acre was about Rs 653 crore.last_img read more

first_imgCardiac sarcoidosis affects the heart in five to 25 percent of all sarcoidosis cases, prompting a range of symptoms from none at all to an irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, leg swelling or, in rare cases, chest pain. Because all these symptoms are indicative of many different conditions, physicians suspecting cardiac sarcoidosis typically run a battery of tests that first exclude other diseases.DIAGNOSIS: A cardiac biopsy is one of the few ways to confirm the diagnosis, although a cardiac MRI can sometimes detect the granularcells, which resemble clumps of sand or salt grains and eventually influence organ function. About one-third of the patients with cardiac sarcoidosis have detectable abnormalities visible in an echocardiogram. Other diagnostic tests include nuclear imaging and cardiac positron emission tomographic scans, also known as PET scans.Although sarcoidosis can wax and wane, cycling through active and inactive phases, it usually occurs in more than one organ at a time. Effects on the heart can range from undetectable to severe. Potential problems include abnormal heart rhythm, blood flow blockages, heart failure and valve malfunctions.TREATMENT: The primary difference when treating patients with cardiac sarcoidosis compared to most other cardiac conditions is that immunosuppressive therapy is often required in addition to standard medical and device therapy. The cornerstone for immunosuppressive therapy is corticosteroid treatment; however, steroid-sparing agents are also commonly co-administered to reduce side-effects.Cardiac device therapy has evolved over time such that many more patients are now receiving pacemakers or implantable cardiac defibrillators for primary prevention of sudden death.  Steroids are used to help reduce inflammation. Prednisolone is usually used and generally needed for a course of six to 24 months.last_img read more

first_imgShereese Hickson’s multiple sclerosis was flaring again. Spasms in her legs and other symptoms were getting worse. She could still walk and take care of her son six years after doctors diagnosed the disease, which attacks the central nervous system. Earlier symptoms such as slurred speech and vision problems had resolved with treatment, but others lingered: She was tired and sometimes fell. This summer, a doctor switched her to Ocrevus, a drug approved in 2017 that delayed progression of the disease in clinical trials better than an older medicine did. Genentech, a South San Francisco, Calif.-based subsidiary of Swiss pharmaceutical giant Roche, makes Ocrevus. The drug is one of several for multiple sclerosis that are delivered intravenously in a hospital or clinic. Such medicines have become increasingly expensive, priced in many cases at well over $80,000 a year. Hospitals delivering the drugs often make money by charging a premium on top of their cost or adding hefty fees for the infusion clinic. Hickson received her first two Ocrevus infusions as an outpatient two weeks apart in July and August. And then the bill came. Patient: Shereese Hickson, 39, single mother who worked as a health aide and trained as a medical coder, living in Girard, Ohio. Because her MS has left her too disabled to work, she is now on Medicare; she also has Medicaid for backup.Total bill: $123,019 for two Ocrevus infusions taken as an outpatient. CareSource, Hickson’s Medicare managed care plan, paid a discounted $28,960. Hickson got a bill for about $3,620, the balance calculated as her share by the hospital after the insurance reimbursement.Medical service: Two Ocrevus infusions, each requiring several hours at the hospital.Service provider: Cleveland Clinic, a nonprofit, academic medical center based in Ohio. (Cleveland Clinic has provided financial support for NPR.)What gives: Hickson researched Ocrevus online after her doctor prescribed the new medicine. “I’ve seen people’s testimonies about how great it is” on YouTube, she said. “But I don’t think they really go into what it’s like receiving the bill.” That was particularly shocking because, covered by government insurance for her disability, she had never received a bill for MS medicine before.”I have a 9-year-old son and my income is $770 a month,” said Hickson. “How am I supposed to support him and then you guys are asking me for $3,000?”Even in a world of soaring drug prices, multiple sclerosis medicines stand out. Over two decades ending in 2013, costs for MS medicines rose at annual rates five to seven times higher than those for prescription drugs generally, found a study by researchers at Oregon Health & Science University.”There was no competition on price that was occurring,” said Daniel Hartung, the OHSU and Oregon State University professor who led the study. “It appeared to be the opposite. As newer drugs were brought to market, it promoted increased escalation in drug prices.”With Ocrevus, Genentech did come up with a price that was slightly less than for rival drugs, but only after MS medicines were already extremely expensive. The drug launched last year at an annual list price of $65,000, about 25 percent lower than that of other MS drugs, Hartung said. MS drugs cost about $10,000 per year in the 1990s and about $30,000 a decade ago. “We set the price of Ocrevus to reduce price as a barrier to treatment,” said Genentech spokeswoman Amanda Fallon. It was also probably a response to bad publicity about expensive MS drugs, Hartung said. “Now companies are very aware at least of the optics of releasing drugs at higher and higher prices,” he said. Patients starting Ocrevus get two initial infusions of 300 milligrams each and then 600 milligrams twice a year. Cleveland Clinic charged $117,089 for Hickson’s first two doses of Ocrevus — more than three times what hospitals typically pay for the drug, said John Hennessy, chief business development officer at WellRithms, a firm that analyzes medical bills for self-insured employers. As is typical of government programs such as Medicare, the $28,960 reimbursement ultimately collected by the Cleveland Clinic was far less — but still substantial. “We kind of got ourselves in a pickle here,” he said. “We’re more excited about the discount than we are about the actual price.”Hickson’s nearly $3,620 bill represented the portion that Medicare patients often are expected to pay themselves.Last year, the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review, an independent nonprofit that evaluates medical treatments, completed a detailed study on MS medicines. It found that Ocrevus was one of three or four medicines that were most effective in reducing MS relapses and preventing MS from getting worse. But it also found that patient benefits from MS drugs “come at a high relative cost” to society. At the same time, deciding which MS drug — there are about a dozen — would best suit patients is something of a shot in the dark: The science showing the comparative effectiveness of MS drugs is not as strong as it could be, researchers say.”In general, there’s a real lack of head-to-head studies for many of these drugs,” said Hartung. The [Food and Drug Administration] has no required comparison standard for MS drugs, an agency spokeswoman said. Sometimes they’re rated against placebos. With everyone able to charge a high price, the companies have little incentive to see which works better and which worse.Resolution: After Hickson questioned the charges over the phone, the billing office told her to apply to the hospital for financial assistance. Hickson had to print a form, provide proof of her disabled status, mail it and wait.Hospital officials told her in October she qualified for assistance based on her income through a state program funded by hospital contributions and federal money. Cleveland Clinic wiped out the $3,620 balance.”I’m grateful that they approved me for that, but not everybody’s situation is like that,” she said. She was worried enough about being billed again for her next Ocrevus infusion that she considered switching back to her old medicine. But her doctor wants her to give it more time to gauge its effects.The takeaway: Always ask about charity care or financial assistance programs. Hospitals have different policies and wide discretion about how to apply them, but they often do not even tell patients such programs exist. Because health care costs can be so high, you may be eligible even if you have a decent salary. Cleveland Clinic gives free care to everybody below a certain income, said spokeswoman Heather Phillips. But it wasn’t until Hickson called that the hospital agreed to erase the charge. While there are multiple new drugs to treat serious chronic conditions, they have often not been tested against one another. Moreover, your doctor may have no idea about their prices. But he or she should. For newer drugs, all options may well be very expensive. Keep in mind that drugs that must be infused often come with facility fees and infusion charges, which can leave patients with hefty copayments for outpatient treatment. Ask about oral medicines or those you can self-inject at home. NPR produced and edited the interview with Kaiser Health News’ Elisabeth Rosenthal for broadcast.

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Nov 9 2018For the first time, researchers at the UNC School of Medicine showed they could target one brain region with a weak alternating current of electricity, enhance the naturally occurring brain rhythms of that region, and significantly decrease symptoms associated with chronic lower back pain.The results, published in the Journal of Pain and presented at the Society for Neuroscience conference in San Diego this week, suggest that doctors could one day target parts of the brain with new noninvasive treatment strategies, such as transcranial alternating current stimulation, or tACS, which researchers used in this study to boost the naturally occurring brain waves they theorized were important for the treatment of chronic pain.”We’ve published numerous brain stimulation papers over several years, and we always learn something important,” said senior author Flavio Frohlich, PhD, director of the Carolina Center for Neurostimulation and associate professor of psychiatry. “But this is the first time we’ve studied chronic pain, and this is the only time all three elements of a study lined up perfectly. We successfully targeted a specific brain region, we enhanced or restored that region’s activity, and we correlated that enhancement with a significant decrease in symptoms.”Co-first author Julianna Prim, a graduate student mentored by Karen McCulloch, PT, PhD, in the Department of Allied Health Sciences at the UNC School of Medicine, who works closely with Frohlich’s lab, said, “If brain stimulation can help people with chronic pain, it would be a cheap, non-invasive therapy that could reduce the burden of opioids, which we all know can have severe side effects.”Chronic pain is the leading cause of disability in the world, but there is not consensus among scientists that brain activity plays a causal role in the condition. Frohlich says the pain research field has focused largely on peripheral causes of chronic pain. For example, if you have chronic lower back pain, then the cause and solution lie in the lower back and related parts of the nervous system in the spine. But some researchers and clinicians believe chronic pain runs deeper, that the condition can reorganize how cells in the nervous system communicate with each other, including networks of neurons in the brain. Over time, the theory goes, these networks get stuck in a kind of neural rut, essentially becoming a cause of chronic pain.Previous studies showed that people with chronic pain experience abnormal neural oscillations, or brain waves. There are several kinds of brain waves related to different brain regions and various kinds of brain activities – processing visual stimuli, memorization, creative thinking, etc. When we speak, think, eat, play sports, watch television, daydream, or sleep, our brain activity creates electrical patterns researchers can measure using electroencephalograms, or EEGs. These patterns fluctuate or oscillate, which is why they appear as waves that rise and fall on an EEG printout.One type of brain activity is called alpha oscillations, which occur when we are not taking in stimuli. When we meditate in silence, daydream in the shower, or even when we’re “in the zone” during athletic activity, alpha oscillations dominate the brain. Frohlich’s lab wanted to know if these alpha oscillations were deficient in the somatosensory cortex, located in the middle portion of the brain and likely involved in chronic pain. If so, then could Frohlich’s team enhance the alpha waves there? And if that were possible, would there be any pain relief?Related StoriesSleep quality and fatigue among women with premature ovarian insufficiencyResearchers measure EEG-based brain responses for non-speech and speech sounds in childrenWearing a hearing aid may mitigate dementia riskPrim and colleagues recruited 20 patients with lower chronic back pain. Each of them reported back pain as “four” or greater for at least six months on the subjective scale of one to 10. Each participant volunteered for two 40-minute sessions that took place one to three weeks apart.During all sessions, researchers attached an array of electrodes to the scalps of patients. During one session, researchers targeted the somatosensory cortex using tACS to enhance the naturally occurring alpha waves. During another session for all participants, researchers used a similar weak electrical current that was not targeted – this was a sham or placebo stimulation session. During all sessions, participants felt tingling on their scalp. They could not tell the difference between the sham and tACS sessions. Also, the researchers in charge of analyzing the data did not know when each participant underwent the sham or tACS sessions, making this study double-blinded.Co-first author Sangtae Ahn, PhD, a postdoc in Frohlich’s lab, analyzed the data, which showed that Frohlich’s team could indeed successfully target and enhance alpha oscillations in the somatosensory cortex of people with chronic lower back pain. When Prim and colleagues surveyed the participants, all of them reported a significant reduction in pain immediately following the tACS sessions, according to the subjective 0-10 pain scale. Remarkably, some participants reported feeling no pain after the tACS sessions. Participants did not report the same pain reduction after the sham stimulation sessions.”The exciting thing is that these results occurred after just one session,” Prim said. “We hope to conduct a larger study to discover the effects of multiple tACS sessions over a longer time period.”Frohlich said his lab also hopes to conduct studies on people with various kinds of chronic pain.”This study is a perfect example of what’s possible when scientists and clinicians collaborate,” he said. “Ultimately, if we want to develop better treatments, cures, and prevention strategies, then these sorts of new approaches that bring researchers together are of fundamental importance.”Frohlich is a member of the UNC Neuroscience Center. His main appointment is in psychiatry, but he holds joint appointments in the departments of biomedical engineering and cell biology & physiology at UNC-Chapel Hill.The National Institutes of Health and the North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences (NC TraCS) Institute funded this research.Transcranial alternating current stimulation is not electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), or shock therapy. The amount of electrical current used for tACS is about 1,000 times less than ECT.

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jan 23 2019Middle-aged women with a history of preeclampsia have a greater risk of stroke, and aspirin may be able to reduce the risk, according to a new study led by researchers at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians & Surgeons. The study was published today in the journal Neurology, along with an accompanying editorial and podcast.Why it mattersThough preeclampsia rates are declining or stable in other developed nations, they are rapidly rising in the United States, where about one in 20 pregnancies is complicated by preeclampsia and other pregnancy-related hypertensive disorders.Preeclampsia increases the long-term risk of cardiovascular disease, including stroke, a leading cause of disability and death in women. Although younger stroke patients are usually less impaired by stroke in the short term than older patients, years of disability and loss of income can have severe long-term consequences.BackgroundLow-dose aspirin treatment during pregnancy decreases the incidence of preeclampsia among high-risk women, but most women stop taking aspirin after delivery. It is unknown whether aspirin use after delivery offers long-term benefits.What the study foundThe researchers used data from 84,000 women enrolled in the California Teachers Study; of these, roughly 4,000 had a history of preeclampsia. Women were considered regular aspirin users if they reported taking aspirin three or more times a week after delivery for at least one year.The researchers found that the overall stroke risk was 30 percent higher in women with a history of preeclampsia, compared to those with no history.Regular aspirin use seemed to erase the increased risk of stroke associated with preeclampsia, but only in women under 60. Aspirin users in this age group with a history of preeclampsia had the same stroke risk as women with no history of the condition. In comparison, formerly preeclamptic women in this age group who did not take aspirin had a 50 percent greater risk of stroke.Related StoriesInvestment in stroke prevention interventions is good for the futureNew discovery may explain some forms of strokeStudy explores role of iron in over 900 diseasesAspirin use had no significant effect on reducing excess stroke risk in women over 60 with a history of preeclampsia.What it meansThe study is a first step in exploring the idea that aspirin may prevent strokes in women with a history of preeclampsia.”It would be premature, at this point, to recommend aspirin for all women with a history of preeclampsia, since aspirin can have serious side effects, such as bleeding that leads to hospitalization,” says lead author Eliza C. Miller, MD, a neurologist at Columbia University Irving Medical Center.But Miller says that aspirin may be warranted for some of these women. Many organizations currently recommend low-dose aspirin to prevent heart attack and stroke for some people at high risk of cardiovascular disease.”A history of preeclampsia is currently not considered when calculating 10-year cardiovascular risk, but it probably needs to be incorporated into risk-estimation guidelines,” Miller says. “Some women with this history may need primary preventive treatment with aspirin, even in the absence of additional vascular risk factors.”Next stepsThe current study was observational and shows only that aspirin is associated with reduced stroke risk in women with a history of preeclampsia.Randomized controlled trials are needed to establish the efficacy of aspirin for the primary prevention of stroke in selected women with a history of preeclampsia.Study limitationsThe study group was largely white and may not be representative of all women with the condition. “Some groups of women, especially African Americans, are at higher risk for both preeclampsia and stroke, and it’s possible we would see an even stronger effect of aspirin in such groups,” says Miller.Source: https://www.cuimc.columbia.edu/last_img read more
