BACKGROUND & AIMS We investigated the effects of the fatty acid-bile acid conjugate 3β-arachidyl-amido, 7α-12α-dihydroxy, 5β-cholan-24-oic acid (Aramchol; Trima Israel Pharmaceutical Products Ltd, Maabarot, Israel) in a phase 2 trial of patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). METHODS We performed a randomized, double-blind,(More)
Comparisons between younger and older stroke patients including comorbidities are limited. Prospective data of consecutive patients with first ever acute ischemic stroke were compared between younger (≤ 45 years) and older patients (> 45 years). Among 1004 patients, 137 (14 %) were ≤ 45 years. Younger patients were more commonly female (57 % versus 34 %; p(More)
In a controlled trial, thermal biofeedback (n = 20) and abbreviated progressive relaxation (n = 22) were compared in the treatment of mild to moderate hypertensive patients whose blood pressures (BP) were initially controlled on two medications. For the clinical end point of maintaining control of BP on a single drug after treatment, biofeedback was(More)
A 3-year-old boy who suffered from severe colicky abdominal pain is presented. Laboratory studies, including ultrasound, upper gastrointestinal films, and 99mTc-scan, were interpreted as normal. On exploration of the abdomen a tubular duplication of the small bowel was found. The duplication had a common mesentery with the normal bowel. By meticulous(More)
We compared a clinic-based regimen of 16 individual sessions (2 per week) of thermal biofeedback with a largely home-based regimen of 5 sessions (spread over 8 weeks) for the treatment of essential hypertension in patients who required at least two drugs to maintain control of blood pressure (BP). On the basis of the clinical end point of being successfully(More)
