This report outlines the most essential characteristics of low power lasers commonly used in physical medicine. The optical output power of two Helium-Neon (HeNe) lasers (CW scanner) and two collimated Infrared (IR) laser diodes was measured with a CoherentR Model 212 meter designed to measure output power and its power density. The energy of two collimated(More)
OBJECTIVES To establish the cut-off values for inactive disease, as well as low disease activity (LDA), moderate disease activity (MDA) and high disease activity (HDA) in non-systemic JIA based on the Juvenile Arthritis Disease Activity Score (JADAS) and assessed with the 10-joint JADAS (JADAS10) and clinical JADAS10 (cJADAS10). METHODS In a multicentre(More)
First weeks after alcohol withdrawal, associated with profound changes in neural transmission, constitute the critical period for relapse prevention and pharmacological intervention in alcoholism. Here, 20 male alcoholics with 1±6 weeks of abstinence and 20 age-matched healthy controls were studied using auditory event-related potentials (ERP), measured(More)
We investigated the effects of chronic alcoholism on middle-latency auditory evoked potentials (MAEP) in 14 male alcoholics with 1±6 weeks of abstinence (without other severe disorders) and 13 age-matched male social-drinker controls. The peak amplitude of a positive de¯ection (Pa) of the MAEP, peaking at about 30 ms post-stimulus, was signi®cantly larger(More)
