Ophthalmology Clinical Trials

Ophthalmology Clinical Trials involves the use of a specific drug or procedure to treat eye disease in people. Ophthalmology Clinical Trials are usually led by ophthalmologists and optometrists. Most of Ophthalmology Clinical Trials are randomized and include a placebo as part of the control arm. Placebos are harmless substances that look, and feel similar to the actual treatment but have no effect on the disease. Patients' perspectives Patients' perspectives are crucial to a clinical trial's success. However, these perspectives can only be valid if the patients are informed and fully involved in their care. For example, if patients are unaware of the risks of the trial, they may not participate, which can lead to missed appointments and a lack of follow-up. A majority of the patients who participated in a recent survey stated that their doctors were their primary source of information. They also felt that the trial information provided to them was adequate. In addition, more than half said that the trial staff was the most influential in their decision to participate. The study found that most patients made their decision to participate within a day. In a study, 80 patients answered a questionnaire about their experiences with clinical trials. The majority of patients said they would recommend participating in an ophthalmology clinical trial if it improved their quality of life. A majority also said they would participate in subsequent trials. The biggest factor in joining a trial was that they felt they were well informed, and their expectations were met. However, 14 percent of patients said that they did not feel comfortable withdrawing from a clinical trial voluntarily. Patient satisfaction is a key indicator of the quality of care a patient receives. It reflects the provider's ability to meet consumer expectations. In this study, most patients were satisfied with the clinical trial experience, though a small proportion experienced side effects. Understanding the expectations of patients can help reduce any unreasonably high levels of patient dissatisfaction and improve the overall patient experience.

Marijuana Concentrates: The Ultimate Guide

Marijuana concentrates products with high amounts of cannabinoids and other plant molecules. These usually come in the form of oil or wax (hence the colloquial term “wax” ). To obtain them, it is necessary to resort to any of the multiple extraction techniques that exist, however in the vast majority of cases the result is a viscous substance. Regular Marijuana concentrates usually contains between 70% and 80% THC . This is much higher than what is found in marijuana flowers or even in hashish (the latter is, in a way, a type of concentrate). Therefore, it is natural that in the first uses the effects are perceived much more intense, compared to the regular use of the flower. Below is a general classification of Marijuana Concentrates and the ideal ways to use them. Solvent free These types of Marijuana Concentrates are among the oldest and among them are old acquaintances in the cannabis community such as hashish and kief . Both are a pure form of trichomes, which are released with mechanical force (rubbing your hands in the classic charas) and with the help of gravity, separating the trichomes from the plant matter with water (the clearest example is the bubble hashes). Also in this category is Rosin, a newer marijuana concentrate. Any of these three extraction methods can result in a product of the highest quality, but requires experience and extensive development of technical work.

Can Cannabis Relieve Parkinson's Symptoms?

Parkinson's disease is a chronic degenerative disease that affects 1% of the population over the age of 60. Globally, an estimated 9 million people may be affected by 2030 in the world's 15 most populous countries. Could cannabis help relieve Parkinson's symptoms? The main symptoms of the disease are motor: tremors at rest, stiffness, unstable posture, and slowing of movements. But it does not only affect the elderly: there are some cases of juvenile minority Parkinson's that occur in people under 40 years of age. Read also: Can CBD Be Mixed with Antidepressants? What factors cause Parkinson's disease? Surely in 5% of cases, it has a genetic explanation. The other 95% remains a mystery. Research suggests that in addition to genetic causes, there could also be environmental factors that would favor the development of the disease, although it is not yet clear what these factors would be. Parkinson's is an incurable disease. It causes the death of neurons in the area of the brain responsible for producing dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter essential for neurological signals to travel properly through the brain. The lack of dopamine caused by Parkinson's alters the area of the basal ganglia, which are responsible for controlling movement. Therefore, the main symptoms of Parkinson's at first are motor, although, over time sleep problems, depression, anxiety, cognitive impairment, and in the final phases, dementia may also appear.
