Physical #activity offsets genetic risk for incident #depression assessed via electronic health records in a biobank cohort study

Polygenic risk was associated with increased odds of incident depression, and physical activity showed a protective effect of similar but opposite magnitude, even after adjusting for BMI, employment status, educational attainment, and prior depression. Higher levels of physical activity were associated with reduced odds of incident depression across all levels of genetic vulnerability, even among individuals at highest polygenic risk. Conclusions Real‐world data from a … Continue reading Physical #activity offsets genetic risk for incident #depression assessed via electronic health records in a biobank cohort study

Results of a 6-week treatment with 10 mg prednisolone in patients with hand #osteoarthritis (HOPE): a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled trial

..The mean change between baseline and week 6 on VAS-reported finger pain was −21·5 (SD 21·7) in the prednisolone group and −5·2 (24·3) in the placebo group, with a mean between-group difference (of prednisolone vs placebo) of −16·5 (95% CI −26·1 to −6·9; p=0·0007). The number of non-serious adverse events was similar between the groups. Five serious adverse events were reported during our study: one … Continue reading Results of a 6-week treatment with 10 mg prednisolone in patients with hand #osteoarthritis (HOPE): a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled trial
