    Efficacy and safety of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and transcranial direct current stimulation in memory deficits in patients with Alzheimer's disease: Meta-analysis and systematic review
    2024-03-01 - Mendes, Augusto J.; Leite, Jorge; Fernandes, Sara M.; Rodrigues, Pedro F. S.; Conde, Ana; Rocha, Magda
    Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) are two of the most used non-pharmacological interventions for Alzheimer's Disease (AD). However, most of the clinical trials have focused on evaluating the effects on global cognition and not on specific cognitive functions. Therefore, considering that memory loss is one of the hallmark symptoms of AD, we aim to assess the efficacy and safety of tDCS and rTMS in memory deficits. For that, multilevel random effect models were performed considering the standardized mean difference (SMD) between active and sham stimulation. A total of 19 studies with 411 participants demonstrated positive effects in memory after tDCS (SMD=0.20, p = 0.04) and rTMS (SMD=0.44, p = 0.001). Subgroup analysis revealed that tDCS had greater efficacy when administered in temporal regions (SMD=0.32, p = 0.04), whereas rTMS was superior when applied in frontal regions (SMD=0.61, p < 0.001). Therefore, depending on the brain region of stimulation, both interventions produced a positive effect on memory symptoms in AD patients. Finally, the safety of both techniques was observed in the AD population after the reporting of almost no serious events.

    Surrogacy in Portugal: Drawing insights from international practices
    2024-03-13 - Conde, Ana; Santos-Pereira, Carla; Costa, Eva Dias; Araújo, Maria; Domingues, Mariana; Pinho, Micaela; Martins; Martinez de Campos, Mónica; Jayantilal, Shital; Araújo, Rita
    As Portugal prepares to implement surrogacy legislation, it enters a realm fraught with legal, ethical, and psychological complexities. Across the globe, jurisdictions exhibit diverse approaches to surrogacy, reflecting cultural, ethical, and legal diversity. This necessitates a comprehensive understanding of the implications of surrogacy within different legal systems. Moreover, the psychological impact on surrogates, intended parents, and offspring demands careful examination. As Portugal embarks on this journey, it must navigate ethical challenges, ensuring the protection of all parties involved. Furthermore, addressing research gaps and ethical dilemmas will be paramount in crafting legislation that upholds the rights and well-being of all individuals affected by surrogacy arrangements.
