Intermittent regimens of iron supplementation during pregnancy | Cochrane

Anaemia is a frequent condition during pregnancy, particularly among women from low- and middle-income countries who have insufficient iron intake to meet increased iron needs. Traditionally, pregnancy anaemia has been prevented with the provision of daily iron supplements, however, it has recently been proposed that if women take supplements less often, such as once or twice weekly rather than daily, this might reduce side effects and increase acceptance and adherence to supplementation. In this review we assess the benefits and harms of intermittent (i.e. two or three times a week on non-consecutive days) oral supplementation with iron or iron + folic acid or iron + vitamins and minerals for pregnant women.

The use of the sodium channel blockers in people with multiple sclerosis (MS) | Cochrane

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune, inflammatory, demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. It can result in a wide range of symptoms including sensory impairment, fatigue, walking or balance problems, visual impairment, vertigo and cognitive disabilities. At present, the most commonly used MS treatments are immunomodulating agents, such as beta interferon, glatiramer acetate, natalizumab, fingolimod, teriflunomide and dimethyl fumarate. Although these agents have all been shown to reduce relapse frequency, they have little effect on the disability that characterises the progressive forms of the disease. Animal studies show the sodium (Na+) accumulation leads to intracellular calcium (Ca2+) release, and the increased calcium levels can activate the release of harmful elements. These elements contribute to axonal injury exacerbating the neurological disability. If partial blockade of voltage-gated sodium channels could result in neuroprotection in patients with MS, this would be of benefit in preventing the progression of disability in these patients. Neuroprotection is emerging as a potentially important strategy for preventing disability progression in MS.

Interventions for metabolic bone disease in children with chronic kidney disease | Cochrane

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) resulting in reduced kidney function and the need for dialysis and kidney transplant is associated with abnormalities in serum calcium and phosphorus levels leading to high levels of the parathyroid hormone (PTH) and to bone disease. This may result in bone deformities, bone pain, fractures and reduced growth rates. Commonly used treatments (vitamin D compounds and phosphate binders) aim to prevent or correct these outcomes. However, these treatments may raise levels of blood calcium, allow calcium and phosphorus deposition in blood vessels and lead to early cardiovascular disease, which is known to be a problem in adults with CKD.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome - Causes, Treatment & Therapies - Gold Canyon AZ

The Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is an unceasing pain condition that often affects one of the limbs (that can be arms, legs, hands, or feet), generally after an injury or trauma to that particular limb. Complex regional pain syndrome is believed to be caused due to damage, or malfunctioning of the peripheral and central nervous systems. The central nervous system encompasses the brain and spinal cord; whereas the peripheral nervous system includes the nerve signaling from the brain and the spinal cord to the other parts of the body. The Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is exemplified by prolonged or a chronic pain and mild or dramatic changes in the color of the skin, temperature or even swelling in the affecting area.
