ALBPs which are strongly NP-hard [2] can be classified based on different criteria, such as line layout (straight lines, U lines, etc.), the number of models produced (single model, multimodel, mixed model, etc.), duration of tasks (deterministic, stochastic, etc.), the number of workers for each station (traditional lines, two sided lines, multi-manned lines, etc.), and the number of objectives considered (single objective, multi-objective, etc.).
The principal clinical goals of treatment for aLBP are to relieve pain, reduce time away from work, improve physical functioning, develop coping strategies through education, and diminish the likelihood of developing chronic low back pain.
To the best of our knowledge, no experimental evidence is currently available to support the use of ISWI to treat aLBP, except for some reports of case studies (20,24).
Therefore, the present study aimed to determine whether ISWI is an effective method of ameliorating aLBP, especially for those who do not want, are unsuitable for, or do not have access to other pain therapies.
This study was a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded, clinical trial that evaluated the efficacy and safety of ISWI for the treatment of aLBP. This trial was conducted from March 2012 to February 2013.
The eligibility criteria for this trial were as follows: aLBP that was localized between the costal margin and above the inferior gluteal folds without radiating pain to the limb; aged between 18 and 50 years with aLBP of <2 weeks duration; the first episode of aLBP; and moderate to severe aLBP (scores [greater than or equal to]5 on an 11-point visual analogue scale [VAS]; 0="no pain", 10="worst conceivable pain").
Once activated, HSL translocates from the cytosol to the lipid droplet, where it binds to FABP-4, ALBP, or aP2, and begins to hydrolyze TAGs, DAGs, and MAGs with relative hydrolytic rates of 1:10:0.5, respectively (29).
