101. Changes in Surface EMG Activity After Dry Needling Compared to Sham Needling

/treatment Experimental: Dry needling A single dry needling session will be performed with the subject lying on the non painful side. After palpation of a taut band, and detection of a MTrP in the upper trapezius muscle, a trained physiotherapist will penetrate the needle into skin surface, fascia, into the muscle tissue at the MTrP location, and will move the needle up and down in multiple directions. In case local twitch responses are elicited, this will be repeated until the local twitch responses (...)

Tissue resident memory T cells in the human conjunctiva and immune signatures in human dry eye disease Non-recirculating resident memory (TRM) and recirculating T cells mount vigorous immune responses to both self and foreign antigens in barrier tissues like the skin, lung and gastrointestinal tract. Using impression cytology followed by flow cytometry we identified two TRM subsets and four recirculating T-subsets in the healthy human ocular surface. In dry eye disease, principal component (...) -based characterization of dry eye disease and T-subset specific immunotherapies to suppress T-subsets involved in disease.

105. COMPARISON OF DRY NEEDLING VS. SHAM ON THE PERFORMANCE OF VERTICAL JUMP (PubMed)

to participate in this study (mean age 22.7+/- 2.4 years). The subjects were randomly divided into two groups- dry needling (n=18) vs sham (n=17). The dry needling group received needling to four sites on bilateral gastrocnemius muscles; two at the medial head and two at the lateral head. The sham group had the four areas of the gastrocnemius muscle pressed with the tube housing the needle, but the needle was never inserted into the skin. Two-legged vertical jump was measured with chalk marks on the wall (...) COMPARISON OF DRY NEEDLING VS. SHAM ON THE PERFORMANCE OF VERTICAL JUMP Dry needling has been reported to decrease pain in subjects having myofascial trigger points, as well as pain in muscle and connective tissue.The purpose of the study was to compare the effects on the ability to perform a two-legged vertical jump between a group who received one bout of dry needling and a group who received one bout of a sham treatment.Thirty-five healthy students (19 males, 16 females) were recruited

106. Intense pulsed light for evaporative dry eye disease (PubMed)

Intense pulsed light for evaporative dry eye disease There is a clear association between dry eye disease (DED) and skin inflammatory diseases occurring in close proximity to the eyelids, such as facial skin rosacea. Intense pulsed light (IPL) is widely accepted as a treatment for skin rosacea. A number of recent studies demonstrated that, in patients suffering from meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), IPL therapy also reduces signs and symptoms of DED. Despite these encouraging results

108. Dry Needling for Patients With Neck Pain: Protocol of a Randomized Clinical Trial (PubMed)

Dry Needling for Patients With Neck Pain: Protocol of a Randomized Clinical Trial Neck pain is a costly and common problem. Current treatments are not adequately effective for a large proportion of patients who continue to experience recurrent pain. Therefore, new treatment strategies should be investigated in an attempt to reduce the disability and high costs associated with neck pain. Dry needling is a technique in which a fine needle is used to penetrate the skin, subcutaneous tissues (...) , and muscle with the intent to mechanically disrupt tissue without the use of an anesthetic. Dry needling is emerging as a treatment modality that is widely used clinically to address a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Recent studies of dry needling in mechanical neck pain suggest potential benefits, but do not utilize methods typical to clinical practice and lack long-term follow-up. Therefore, a clinical trial with realistic treatment time frames and methods consistent with clinical practice

109. Skin surface electrical potential as an indicator of skin condition: observation of surfactant-induced dry skin and middle-aged skin. (PubMed)

Skin surface electrical potential as an indicator of skin condition: observation of surfactant-induced dry skin and middle-aged skin. We previously reported that skin surface electrical potential might be a good parameter of skin pathophysiology. To examine the potential availability of skin surface electrical potential measurement for diagnostic purposes, we measured the change of the potential in surfactant-induced dry skin and we compared the values of the potential in volunteers (...) of different age groups. We also measured trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) in the same groups. The skin surface electrical potential was significantly increased after sodium dodecyl sulphate treatment, and the alteration was much more marked than that of TEWL. Further, a significant difference in skin surface electrical potential was observed between young- and middle-aged volunteers, although there was no significant difference in TEWL between the two groups. These results suggest that skin surface

112. 3-O-Laurylglyceryl ascorbate improves the development of sensitive skin through the reduction of oxidative stress. (PubMed)

3-O-Laurylglyceryl ascorbate improves the development of sensitive skin through the reduction of oxidative stress. Skin sensitivity is a serious problem for many people, and it can be induced by various factors such as UV irradiation, physical and mental stresses, air pollution, dry air and so on. Skin dryness triggered by UV and dry air is one of the most important causes inducing the development of sensitive skin, and it has been reported that oxidative stress contributes to skin dryness (...) . In this study, we investigated whether treatment with 3-O-laurylglyceryl ascorbate (VC-3LG), which is an amphipathic ascorbic acid derivative, can suppress the development of sensitive skin. The results demonstrate that VC-3LG restores the expression levels of interleukin-1α, nerve growth factor and matrix metalloprotease-9 in the dry skin models of reconstructed human epidermal equivalents (RHEEs) and in H2 O2 -treated keratinocytes. In addition, VC-3LG suppresses the dendrite elongation of nerve cells

Efficacy of Different Hair and Skin Decontamination Strategies with Identification of Associated Hazards to First Responders. Background: Established procedures for mass casualty decontamination involve the deployment of equipment for showering with water (such as the ladder pipe system [LPS] and technical decontamination [TD]).

The incorporation of dry decontamination to the incident response process offers the potential to establish (...) a more rapid and timely intervention. Objectives: To investigate the effectiveness of various dry (DD) and wet decontamination strategies for removing a chemical warfare simulant (methyl salicylate; MS) from the hair and skin of human volunteers. Methods: The simulant was applied to volunteers via whole body exposure to an aerosol. Three decontamination protocols (dry, LPS and technical decontamination) were applied, singly and in various combinations. The efficacy of the protocols was evaluated

Lactobacillus reuteri DSM 17938 - A comparative study on the effect of probiotics and lysates on human skin. Human skin microbiota might play an important role in maintaining skin health and potentially prevent premature skin aging.

Triggering factors in sensitive skin from the worldwide patient's point of view: a systematic literature review and meta-analysis. Sensitive skin (SS) is a syndrome defined by the occurrence of unpleasant sensations in response to stimuli that normally should not provoke such sensations. In most patients, symptoms occur within one hour following exposure to trigger factors and may persist for minutes or even hours. Numerous triggering factors (physical, chemical or psychological) are suspected (...) and described in articles. The aim of this article was to perform a systematic literature review to collect data on the triggering factors involved in SS and to then perform a meta-analysis. Thirteen studies were included in the systematic literature review. Subjects were classified into groups, SS or no sensitive skin (NSS), and triggering factors were researched through responses to different questions. SS could be triggered by numerous factors. The most important triggering factor was cosmetics
