The control group will receive natalizumab at a dose 300 mg by intravenous injection every 4 weeks. Unless the patient or physician chose to discontinue or interrupt therapy or if an adverse event (AE) occurs that prevents further treatment.

Abstract Objective: Emergency department (ED) overcrowding is a worldwide problem associated with adverse outcomes. This study was performed to investigate the association between ED overcrowding and the outcomes and quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Methods: Prospectively collected data including patients’ demographics, Utstein factors and outcomes on 608 consecutive OHCA patients at a single ED from January 2008 to December 2012 were retrospectively analyzed. The patients were categorized into 4 groups according to ED occupancy rate. The primary outcome was resuscitation outcome, a composite of rates of return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), survival at discharge and neurological outcome at 6 months.
The aim of this study if to evaluate the effect of three fall-prevention programs- 1) education, 2) HAAM 3) exercise- in older adults (65 and above) on their quality of life, depression, functional balance and gait, ADLs and fear of falling. 150 participants were blocked randomised into 50 participants each in the three groups. Interventions were carried out every two week for 4 months. The education group which also served as a control was given 30 to 40 minutes of social visits where fall prevention information sheets were given by public health worker. The HAAM also received 30 to 40 minutes of assessment and recommendation modification by public health worker.
During surgery, biopsy was taken from the edge of the ulcer to test for the presence of helicobacter pylori. H. pylori infection was diagnosed by histology. If it was positive, a triple therapy regimen consisting of amoxicillin,pantoprazole and metronidazole for one week was administered on resumption of oral intake. Patient taking non-steroidal anti-inflamatery drugs were adiveed to stop these drugs. Patient were called for follow up at 1 week, 1 month, 6 months, 12months and yearly thereafter.

Psoriasis Disability index (PDI)(Revised form 1999) The Psoriasis Disability Index questionnaire is designed by Finlay in 1992 and used in adults i.e. patients overage of 16 years. It is self explanatory and can be handed to the patient who is asked to fill it in without the need for a detailed explanation. It is usually completed in 3 or 4 minutes. There are two possible alternative formats of PDI.
Part B: Annotated Bibliography Article One: Why do hospitalized older adults take risks that may lead to falls? A study commenced by Terry.P.Haines recruited from Southern Health Hospital facilities, Victoria, Australia in 2009 between the months of March and June after receiving ethical approval from the Southern Health Human Research committee. The study aimed to identify factors and pathways explaining as why older adults take risks that may lead to falls in hospitalized setting. Thus, the aim of the study were addressed using qualitative, phenomenological, constructive approach that was exploratory and descriptive. The participants were from inpatient medical and rehabilitation wards (n=16) and health professionals (n=33).
