Mediterranean diet and cognitive health: Initial results from the Hellenic Longitudinal Investigation of Ageing and Diet
TLDR
The results suggest that adherence to an a priori defined Mediterranean dietary pattern and its components with dementia and specific aspects of cognitive function in a representative population cohort in Greece are associated with better cognitive performance and lower dementia rates in Greek elders. Expand
Effect of the emotional freedom technique on perceived stress, quality of life, and cortisol salivary levels in tension-type headache sufferers: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
EFT was reported to benefit patients with TTH and this randomized controlled trial shows promising results for not only the frequency and severity of headaches but also other lifestyle parameters. Expand
Laryngopharyngeal reflux disease in the Greek general population, prevalence and risk factors
TLDR
The prevalence of LPR in the general Greek population was found to be 18.8 % with no statistically significant difference between the two genders (p > 0.05), and tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption were found to been related with LPR. Expand
CSF biomarkers β-amyloid, tau proteins and a-synuclein in the differential diagnosis of Parkinson-plus syndromes
TLDR
CSF biochemical profile analysis is important in distinguishing AD patients with a CBS phenotype from non-AD CBS patients and the τT/Aβ42 ratio is useful in the differential diagnosis of MSA from PD. Expand
Gastroesophageal reflux disease symptoms in the Greek general population: prevalence and risk factors
TLDR
Tobacco smoking and alcohol drinking but not concomitant disease or medications were found to be related with GERD symptoms, and the age group of 65–79 years showed a higher prevalence rate of GERD. Expand
Plasma alpha-synuclein levels in patients with Parkinson’s disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Total plasma α-Syn levels were higher in PD patients than controls and there was no significant association between the SMD in α-synuclein levels and disease duration, disease severity, and quality of studies. Expand
Melatonin 4 mg as prophylactic therapy for primary headaches: a pilot study.
TLDR
A pilot study to assess the potential effectiveness of melatonin for primary headache prevention shows promising results, in terms of headache frequency reduction and daily quality of life improvement, in both groups. Expand
Frontotemporal dementia as the presenting phenotype of p.A53T mutation carriers in the alpha-synuclein gene.
TLDR
Two apparently unrelated cases of p.A53T (G209A) SNCA mutation carriers with an atypical initial manifestation and disease course are described, indicating a subtype of this disorder, with distinctive clinical, imaging and CSF biochemical characteristics, in which additional genetic or epigenetic factors may play a role. Expand
Preliminary evidence for gender effects of levetiracetam monotherapy duration on bone health of patients with epilepsy
TLDR
Preliminary results are indicative of a differential effect of LEV therapy duration in men and women, which could presumably account for the incongruity of the already published studies. Expand
Inhaled Corticosteroids and Voice Problems. What Is New?
TLDR
Understanding concerning basic information of ICS effects on voice still remains poor, and further investigation is needed to have a better understanding on epidemiology, predisposing factors, mechanisms, prevention, and treatment of voice problems attributed to ICS. Expand
