Da Vinci's hand impairment caused by nerve damage, not stroke

LakeArrowhead (#1) 71 days ago Science da vincis hand impairment caused nerve damage stroke All https://www.sciencedaily.com   Discuss  | Add To 
A fainting episode causing traumatic nerve damage affecting his right hand could be why Leonardo da Vinci's painting skills were hampered in his late career. While the impairment affected his ability to hold palettes and brushes to paint with his right hand, he was able to continue teaching and drawing with his left hand. According to most authors, the origin of da Vinci's right hand palsy was related to a stroke.

Prospect for more effective treatment of nerve pain

LakeArrowhead (#1) 875 days ago Science prospect effective treatment nerve pain All https://www.sciencedaily.com   Discuss  | Add To 
Trigeminal neuralgia is characterized by sharp, lancinating pain in the teeth or facial area. The standard treatment for this chronic nerve pain can cause burdening side effects. A novel substance inhibits the pain effectively and is well tolerated, as documented by the initial results of an international study.

Genetic biomarker may predict nerve pain side effects associated with prostate cancer treatment

LakeArrowhead (#1) 1158 days ago Science genetic biomarker predict nerve pain effects prostate cancer treatment All https://www.sciencedaily.com   Discuss  | Add To 
Taxanes are a group of drugs commonly used to treat cancers of the breast, lung, ovary, or prostate, but its use can be limited by significant side effects. Researchers report prostate cancer patients who have a variation in the VAC14 gene are more susceptible to a side effect called peripheral neuropathy when treated with the taxane docetaxel.
