Call for papers: New Frontiers in Diagnosis, Treatment and Management of Neuromuscular Disorders

We are seeking submissions of original research and front matter articles on significant insights into pathogenesis of and treatments for inherited and sporadic forms of neuromuscular disorders. We are particularly interested in manuscripts focusing on translational models of pathogenesis and therapy, clinical trials, diagnosis and screening programmes, and clinical care and management

Research: Physical activity, multimorbidity, mortality and life expectancy

A recent study using data from the UK Biobank assessed the benefits of physical activity (PA) in people with and without multimorbidity, finding an inverse dose-response association between PA and all-cause mortality and between moderate PA and life expectancy.

Correspondence: Progress in reducing maternal mortality using verbal autopsy

As reducing maternal mortality is key to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, verbal autopsy methods are the only way to assess maternal deaths outside health facilities, which should be followed by thorough follow-up interviews to identify specific causes of death.

Research: Three randomised controlled trials evaluate “spin” in health new stories

By designing three internet-based randomised controlled trials, authors assessed whether patients’/caregivers’ interpretation of a pharmacologic treatment would be affected by spin in health new stories.  Authors found that, regardless the study design, participants reading news story with spin were more likely to believe that the treatment would be beneficial.
