Physical activity has long been recognised as an important determinant of health and longevity, and many countries have explicit physical activity guidelines for promoting health.1 2 The corollary of this is that people who do not meet the guidelines, a substantial proportion of the population,3 are at risk of worse health. However, relatively little attention has been given to the question of how much activity is needed to make a difference. Although this is not explicitly their primary purpose, two new papers shed light on this question. Dunlop and colleagues (doi:10.1136/bmj.g2472) followed a cohort of people who had mild to moderate osteoarthritis or were at risk of osteoarthritis to look at the development of disability over two years.4 Cooper and colleagues (doi:10.1136/bmj.g2219) estimated the relation between physical capability in midlife—as indicated by grip strength, chair rise speed, and standing balance—and later mortality.5 Both showed that the relation between inactivity and risk of disability or death is not linear: people …

What is a crossover trial?

Researchers evaluated the effectiveness of the cannabinoid dronabinol on central neuropathic pain in patients with multiple sclerosis.[1] The effectiveness of cannabinoids in relieving pain caused by central lesions in multiple sclerosis had not been investigated previously. A randomised double blind placebo controlled crossover trial study design was used. The intervention was orally administered dronabinol at a maximum dose of 10 mg daily or corresponding placebo. Each treatment period was for three weeks, separated by a three week washout period. All analgesic drugs, except for paracetamol, were discontinued at least one week before the start of the trial.
