Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Trichotillomania: A Bayesian Case-Control Study
Thu, 11 Feb 2016 22:11:24 +0100 | Psychologica Belgica
Over the last years, mindfulness-based interventions combined with habit reversal training have been demonstrated to be particularly suitable for addressing trichotillomania. However, because these studies always combined mindfulness training to habit reversal without including either a mindfulness or habit reversal condition alone, it is still unclear whether clinical benefits are the consequences of mindfulness or merely result from habit reversal training. The primary purpose of the present study was thus to examine whether a mindfulness training procedure without habit reversal could alleviate trichotillomania. Using a Bayesian probabilistic approach for single-case design, client’s hair loss severity and level of mindfulness were compared to a normative sample (n = 15) before treatm...

Delayed hypersensitivity reaction to intralesional triamcinolone acetonide following treatment for alopecia areata. Intradermal testing.
Mon, 08 Feb 2016 13:26:02 +0100 | Journal of Dermatological Case Reports
CONCLUSIONS: Patch testingmay be unsuccessful in detecting delayed reactions to intralesional corticosteroids. In such cases intradermal testing at a non-cosmetically sensitive sitemay be a useful diagnostic tool.

Enhancement of Human Hair Growth Using Ecklonia cava Polyphenols.
Mon, 08 Feb 2016 13:25:03 +0100 | Annals of Dermatology
CONCLUSION: These results suggest that PPE could enhance human hair growth. This can be explained by hDPC proliferation coupled with increases in growth factors such as IGF-1 and VEGF. Reducing oxidative stress is also thought to help increase hDPCs. These favorable results suggest that PPE is a promising therapeutic candidate for hair loss.

Could statins treat common cause of vision loss?
Fri, 05 Feb 2016 12:00:00 +0100 | NHS News Feed
ConclusionThe difference between the dramatic improvement seen in the case study of the 63-year-old man and the comparatively modest, or lack of, effect seen in the 23 taking part in the trial shows the limitations of studying small numbers of people, and the current uncertainly about the effects of this treatment. There is large variability in small groups, which doesn't tell us whether the treatment will help most people. The way to solve this is to study lots more people. This helps to smooth out the natural variability in people's responses to the same treatment and can highlight groups more or less likely to benefit. These groups can be studied further to figure out why the variation exists and potentially discover other ways to help more people benefit.Other limitations include that ...
