Effect of vagus nerve stimulation paired with rehabilitation for upper limb function im...
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research. Interna... Zhao K, Yang J et. al.

Nov 29th, 2021 - Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) could potentially facilitate arm function recovery after stroke. The aim of this review was to evaluate the effect of VNS paired with rehabilitation on upper limb function recovery after stroke. We considered randomiz...

Acute vagus nerve stimulation does not affect liking or wanting ratings of food in heal...
Appetite Müller FK, Teckentrup V et. al.

Nov 20th, 2021 - The vagus nerve plays a vital role in the regulation of food intake and vagal afferent signals may help regulate food cue reactivity by providing negative homeostatic feedback. Despite strong evidence from preclinical studies on vagal afferent "sa...

Vagus nerve stimulation for upper limb motor impairment after ischemic stroke: A meta-a...
Medicine Xie YL, Wang S et. al.

Nov 20th, 2021 - Upper limb motor impairment is a common complication following stroke. Although few treatments are used to enhance motor function, still approximately 60% of survivors are left with upper limb motor impairment. Several studies have investigated va...

Current challenges in reliably targeting the noradrenergic locus coeruleus using transc...
Autonomic Neuroscience : Basic & Clinical; Ludwig M, Wienke C et. al.

Nov 16th, 2021 - Transcutaneous auricular vagus nerve stimulation (taVNS), as a non-invasive brain stimulation technique may influence the locus coeruleus-norepinephrine system (LC-NE system) via modulation of the Vagus Nerve (VN) which projects to the LC. Few hum...

Treatment of Chronic Pelvic Pain Due to Endometriosis by Transcutaneous Auricular Vagus Nerve Stimulation

Nov 15th, 2021 - 6-10% of women of childbearing age suffer from endometriosis, which is mainly manifested by dysmenorrhea, non-menstrual pelvic pain and dyspareunia. Several treatment strategies, including surgical ones, are proposed but they are sometimes insuffi...

Safety, Feasibility, and Efficacy of Non-invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation (nVNS) in the Treatment of Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

Nov 2nd, 2021 - This is a single-site, single-arm, open-label pilot study assessing the safety, feasibility, and efficacy of non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation (nVNS), gammaCore, for the acute treatment of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). The hypothesi...

CIMT and taVNS for Hemiplegia in Infants

Nov 1st, 2021 - Recent pioneering studies have used neuromodulation combined with intensive motor therapies in adults after stroke. Few studies have investigated combining neuromodulation and evidence-based pediatric intensive therapies such as CIMT, and then onl...

The Path Study: Cognitive and Inflammation Targeted Gut-brain Interventions in Alcohol; Probiotics, Alcohol, Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation, and HIV Study

Oct 22nd, 2021 - This project uses a hybrid trial design to evaluate two biomedical interventions targeting the gut-brain axis. One intervention is portable Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulator, tVNS, that is hypothesized to stimulate the autonomic nervous system...

Effects of Transcutaneous Auricular Vagus Nerve Stimulation on Obesity and Insulin Resistance

Oct 20th, 2021 - Clinical studies and experimental studies in animals have demonstrated that cervical vagus nerve stimulation causes weight loss in obese patients and has profound effects on glucose homeostasis. Furthermore, anorexic and antidiabetic effects have ...

FDA OKs First Vagus Nerve Stimulation System for Stroke Rehab

Aug 27th, 2021 - The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the Vivistim System (MicroTransponder), a first-of-its kind vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) system intended to treat moderate-to-severe upper extremity motor deficits associated with chronic isc...

Vagus Nerve Stimulation, Rehab Effective After Stroke

Apr 28th, 2021 - Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) paired with intensive rehabilitation for moderate to severe arm weakness months or even years after stroke may lead to a greater improvement in arm function than rehabilitation alone, according to preliminary results ...

Noninvasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation Tolerated, Effective for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Mar 22nd, 2021 - (Reuters Health) - Non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation is safe and effective as an intervention for rheumatoid arthritis, a small proof-of-concept study suggests. The study enrolled 35 patients with active rheumatoid arthritis and an inadequate r...

VNS May Improve Upper-Limb Rehabilitation After Stroke

Nov 16th, 2020 - Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) plus rehabilitation provided greater functional improvements compared with sham stimulation plus rehabilitation for patients with moderate to severe arm impairment after ischemic stroke, results of a phase 3 randomize...

Transcutaneous VNS on the ear shows positive effects in lupus pilot trial
Jeff Evans

Nov 6th, 2020 - Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who received transcutaneous auricular vagus nerve stimulation (taVNS) had a clinically significant reduction in musculoskeletal pain when compared with those who received sham stimulation during a b.
