161. MALDI-TOF peptidomic analysis of serum and post-prostatic massage urine specimens to identify prostate cancer biomarkers (Full text)

MALDI-TOF peptidomic analysis of serum and post-prostatic massage urine specimens to identify prostate cancer biomarkers Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and prostate specific antigen-based parameters seem to have only a limited utility for the differential diagnosis of prostate cancer (PCa). MALDI-TOF/MS peptidomic profiling could be a useful diagnostic tool for biomarker discovery, although reproducibility issues have limited its applicability until now. The current study aimed to evaluate (...) a new MALDI-TOF/MS candidate biomarker.Within- and between-subject variability of MALDI-TOF/MS-based peptidomic urine and serum analyses were evaluated in 20 and 15 healthy donors, respectively. Normalizations and approaches for accounting below limit of detection (LOD) values were utilized to enhance reproducibility, while Monte Carlo experiments were performed to verify whether measurement error can be dealt with LOD data. Post-prostatic massage urine and serum samples from 148 LUTS patients were

162. Effects of massage as a recuperative technique on autonomic modulation of heart rate and cardiorespiratory parameters: a study protocol for a randomized clinical trial (Full text)

Effects of massage as a recuperative technique on autonomic modulation of heart rate and cardiorespiratory parameters: a study protocol for a randomized clinical trial Recuperative techniques have been used to anticipate and potentiate recovery. The massage is one of the most widely used in sports. Among the ways to demonstrate the recovery of the organism is the resumption of autonomic modulation of heart rate, which can be analyzed in situations that cause disturbances in the behavior (...) of the cardiovascular system with the objective of verifying the responsiveness of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Recovery can be assessed through heart rate variability (HRV) which analyzes the oscillations in consecutive heartbeats, thus allowing an important non-invasive alternative for the study of modulation of the ANS. The objective of the study will be to measure the effects of massage as a recuperative technique on the autonomic modulation of heart rate and cardiorespiratory parameters at different

171. Anti-stress effects of simplified aroma hand massage (Full text)

Anti-stress effects of simplified aroma hand massage In order to be able to use the aroma hand massage as a skill that can be done by a nurse who does not have a special aromatherapy technique, we examine antistress effects of simplified aroma hand massage for healthy subjects. We evaluated the anti-stress action of aroma hand massage and the different components of the procedure in 20 healthy women in their twenties. We used autonomic nervous function measured via electrocardiogram as an index (...) of stress. After conducting a baseline electrocardiogram, we induced stress in the participants by asking them to spend 30 minutes completing Kraepelin's arithmetic test. We then administered various treatments and examined the anti-stress effects. Kraepelin's test significantly increased sympathetic nervous function and significantly reduced parasympathetic nervous function. Compared with massage without essential oil or aroma inhalation, aroma hand massage significantly increased parasympathetic

172. Short- and long-term effects of using a facial massage roller on facial skin blood flow and vascular reactivity. (Abstract)

Short- and long-term effects of using a facial massage roller on facial skin blood flow and vascular reactivity. Massage rollers are commonly used for beauty care, but their effects on skin blood flow (SkBF) and vascular reactivity remain unclear. We hypothesized that the short-term usage of a massage roller increases the SkBF, while a long-term massage intervention improves vascular dilatation. We measured the facial SkBF change to 5 min massage roller to the right cheek in 12 subjects. We (...) also assessed the effect of 5-week daily use of facial massage roller on the SkBF in the right cheek and the reactivity to local heat in 14 subjects. The short-term massage significantly increased facial SkBF solely in the right cheek for at least 10 min after the massage. The 5-week intervention significantly increased the vasodilatation response to the heat stimulation solely in the right cheek. These findings suggested that performing short-term facial massage with a roller increases SkBF

The experimental group received a 20-min mechanical-bed massage session, while (...) . Experimental group's LF and LF/HF were significantly lower immediately after the intervention than the control group. [Conclusion] Mechanical bed massage may help athletes overcome the subjective feelings of exercise-induced fatigue, modulate the automatic nervous system activity, especially for balancing sympathetic and parasympathetic activities. Therefore, mechanical bed massage may facilitate recovery from muscle and central fatigue after athlete training or competition.
