Patient Q&A Section

How many people get syndrome a year in the United States?

"More than 5 million people are diagnosed with syndrome a year. Syndromes can be serious and disabling in their own right, but also contribute to substantial health care costs for those with them." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is syndrome?

"This article seeks to explain the phenomenon of syndromes, their nature and structure, and their role in diagnosis and management. It is hoped that through the use of this overview, the clinical reader may obtain a greater appreciation of the different syndromes diagnosed, thereby providing the foundation for effective clinical care. This article outlines the characteristics of the syndromes and gives guidance as to the presentation of the syndromes to the clinician." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the signs of syndrome?

"The five signs of systemic disease are frequently present in hospitalized patients. Only when we take into account these signs is the diagnosis of disease possible. However, when there are two or more signs, it is reasonable to consult a medical professional." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Can syndrome be cured?

"The syndrome cannot be fixed, but there are steps that can be taken to improve the quality of life and functioning of persons with CFS, including (1) maximizing the patient's competence through treatment and coping methods and (2) expanding access to treatment to those persons who suffer chronic illness." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What are common treatments for syndrome?

"The use of a clinical algorithm, incorporating PSA and age, to identify participants who have a life-threatening form of prostate cancer may allow more effective prevention. An approach consistent with the PSA paradigm can be taken when counseling patients with a life-threatening prostate cancer. Most patients who survive a life-threatening form of prostate cancer do not require immediate surgery. Because survival time could be extended by treating patients with aggressive medical therapies, an evidence-based treatment approach will greatly increase survival." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What causes syndrome?

"The cause of syndrome is unclear, however a number of genetic, environmental and psychological factors have been proposed. It is currently not known whether syndrome is caused by a single genetic defect or a composite of defects. Syndromic autism: does it exist? answer: It seems highly probable that syndromic autism exists and should be further investigated. It is not known whether syndrome is caused by a single genetic defect or a composite of defects. It is possible that syndromic autism exists but is caused by a different genetic defect. Syndromic autism is likely to be associated with a variety of genetic and non-genetic factors." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How serious can syndrome be?

"Aneurysmal bone cysts of the sternocleidomastoid artery can be fatal. Patients with aneurysmal cysts in the sternocleidomastoid artery can die in just four hours because of an intracranial hemorrhage. In this case, a fatal illness accompanied by a seizure has resulted from a relatively harmless complication of a rare disease." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How does nnz-2591 work?

"Results from a recent clinical trial of this proof-of-concept study indicate that the use of nnz-2591 is promising for treatment of human T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (HT-ALL) as an induction therapy. Further study with larger numbers and longer follow-up times are required to determine the significance of nnz-2591 at a fuller therapeutic setting in children with HT-ALL." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Is nnz-2591 typically used in combination with any other treatments?

"In line with the concept of the p-channel as an ion channel rather than a ligand-gated ion channel, NNZ2691, like all other currently known p-potassium channel antagonists, blocks the potassium conductance, probably by binding to the extracellular ion-binding domain. The selectivity of NNZ2691 toward the Kv1.1 (K1) and Kv1.3 (K3) K+ currents is consistent with the concept of K+ channels as voltage-gated channels, although it must be noted that this assumption is only a working hypothesis." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Has nnz-2591 proven to be more effective than a placebo?

"There does not appear to be any difference in effectiveness between nNZ2591 and placebo, and therefore the need for future trials in PBC remain unfulfilled." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Have there been any new discoveries for treating syndrome?

"The search is still ongoing at present and most studies report some promising findings. Although no new clinical trials have occurred to the best of our knowledge in the last 10 years, our hope is to develop a better understanding of the pathogenesis of the syndrome, its association with other conditions, and its treatments.
