  • The Association of Butyrate Fermented in Aloe Vera Gel with Bone and
           Muscle Generation Case Reports: Recovery of Dermatologic Microscopic
           Polyangiitis with Kampo Medicine and Aloe Vera Juice (AVJ), and Beneficial
           Role of AVJ to Migraine and Movement

    • Authors: Akira Yagi, Megumi Hasegawa, Suzuka Ataka
      Abstract: Regeneration of muscle and bone with Aloe vera gel and fermented butyrate in Aloe vera gel in clinical fields were reviewed based on gut-bone axis. Beneficial roles of butyrate fermented in aloe vera gel on the regeneration of bone and muscle were widely expressed. In case reports regeneration of dermatologic microscopic polyangiitis with kampo medicine and aloe vera juice (AVJ), and beneficial role of AVJ to migraine and movement were demonstrated.

  • Effectiveness of Electroacupuncture on the Recovery of Gastrointestinal
           Function in Patients after Abdominal Laparoscopic Surgery: A Case-Control

    • Authors: Hao Wang, Junhua Wang, Chunyan Chen, Yunting Hu, Huanbin Hu, Honghong Zhu
      Abstract: AIM: There lacks effective means to promote the recovery of the gastrointestinal function after the surgery. This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of electroacupuncture on the recovery of the gastrointestinal function in patients after abdominal laparoscopic surgery.Methods: We designed a case-control study. Cases were patients having electroacupuncture plus the same treatment as controls; controls were those having traditional routine treatment. All patients had an abdominal laparoscopic surgery between November, 2015 and May, 2018. Based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, 60 patients were selected for each group. Outcomes included abdominal flatulence, time to the rugitus recovery, and time to the first flatus and defecation. Multinomial logistic regressions were used to estimate relative risk ratios (RRR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) for outcomes.Results: Electroacupuncture group had significantly better clinical outcomes than the controls. Average time in hours for the rugitus recovery, first flatus, and first defecation, respectively, was 29.0 ± 1.8, 42.1 ± 2.1, and 84.1 ± 2.3 in electroacupuncture group, and 44.7 ± 2.7, 67.4 ± 3.1, and 117.3 ± 2.9 in normal controls. Unadjusted RRR (95% CI) was 0.82 (0.72, 0.97) for flatulence score, 0.94 (0.92, 0.97) for time to the rugitus recovery, and 0.92 (0.90, 0.95) for the first flatus in cases using normal controls as a base outcome. Results for electroacupuncture were neither confounded nor modified.Conclusions: Electroacupuncture helped recover gastrointestinal function faster than routine treatment after laparoscopy. Electroacupuncture should be recommended for the patients after surgery or having abdominal diseases.

  • Effect of Acemannan Sponge on Implant Stability for Implant Assisted

    • Authors: Ibrahim Ahmed Dahab, Akira Yagi, Mohammed Hassan Esmail
      Abstract: AIM: The present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of aloe vera gel on implant stability for implant assisted overdenture.MATERIAL AND METHODS: Aloe vera gel high molecular weight fractions (AHM) containing native ingredients of polysaccharide (acemannan) and glycoprotein (verectin) were obtained by using the patented hyper dry system after washing out colored materials with running water from aloe vera gel slurry. Ten completely edentulous male patients aged from sixty to seventy years were selected from patients attending outpatient clinic of Prosthodontics department. Each patient had received two implants in the canine region for implant assisted overdenture. The study was conducted as split mouth study design in which the comparison was done between Group I: the right side of the patient in which the implant is inserted in the osteotomy site in conventional way and Group II: the left side of the patient in which aloe vera sponge was inserted in the osteotomy site before implant placement. All cases were received the overdenture at time of implant placement as immediate loading protocol and the implant stability was recorded and compared between Group I and Group II by OSSTELL device at time of insertion, six months, twelve months follow up periods.RESULTS: There was an increase in the numerical implant stability quotient (ISQ) values for Group II over Group I during the follow-up period. However, the difference was statistically non-significant as P value was ≥ 0.005.CONCLUSION: Aloe vera sponge shows promising results in its effect on the osseointegration and implant stability for immediate loading implant assisted overdenture that appear ISQ values during the follow up period.

  • Prognostic model for one-year mortality in patients with upper
           gastrointestinal malignancy at Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital Jakarta,

    • Authors: Khaira Utia Yusrie, Dadang Makmun, Andri Sanityoso Sulaiman, Siti Setiati
      Abstract: Aims: To identify prognostic factors for one-year mortality in patients with upper gastrointestinal malignancy in Indonesia. Methods: Retrospective cohort study using the hospital database of patients with upper gastrointestinal malignancy at Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital (2015-2019). Bivariate and multivariate cox proportional hazards regression analysis were performed to identify independent factors associated with mortality upper gastrointestinal malignancy. Scoring system were developed based on the identified factors. Results: 184 patients were analyzed, mostly male (58,7%) with average ages 54,5 years old. Independent factors associated with one-year mortality were age > 60 years with HR 1,93 (95%CI 1,30;2,88), body mass index < 20 with HR 2,04 (95%CI 1,25;3,33), smoking history with HR 1,77 (95%CI 1,20;2,61), performance status ECOG > 2 with HR 3,37 (95%CI 2,11;5,37), clinical stage which is 4th stage HR 9,42 (95%CI 1,27;69,98) and 3rd stage HR 9,78 (95%CI 1,31;72,69), and cellular differentiation grade  with  HR 2,30 (95%CI 1,48;3,58). 1-year survival rate was 39,7% with median survival was 9 months. The scoring system for predicting mortality had AUC values of 0,918 respectively. Conclusion: The independent factors associated with one-year mortality were age, body mass index, smoking history, performance status, clinical stage of the tumour, and cellular differentiation grade. 1-year survival rate was 39,7%. The mortality probability prediction scoring system has been developed for upper gastrointestinal malignancy
