Plant Nectar

Sugar-rich liquid produced in plant glands called nectaries. It is either produced in flowers or other plant structures, providing a source of attraction for pollinating insects and animals, as well as being a nutrient source to animal mutualists which provide protection of plants against herbivores.

04/01/2002 - "All the patients were clinically assessed at least 3 months before and during a follow-up (for as long as 9 years) in accordance with the Core Assessment Program for Intracranial Transplantation (CAPIT) by a Russian group of the Network of European CNS Transplantation and Restoration (NECTAR) Programme by using the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (URDRS). "
07/01/1999 - "In 1996, within the framework of NECTAR (Network for European CNS Transplantation and Restoration), a dedicated program entitled "Neurosurgical Interventions in Parkinson's Disease" (NIPD) was funded by the European Union Biomed 2 program to develop a new Core Assessment Program for Surgical Interventional Therapies in PD (CAPSIT-PD) and to establish an European registry for patients with PD subjected to functional neurosurgery. "
02/01/2008 - "This study was designed to identify which of 3 treatments for aspiration on thin liquids-chin-down posture, nectar-thickened liquids, or honey-thickened liquids-results in the most successful immediate elimination of aspiration on thin liquids during the videofluorographic swallow study in patients with dementia and/or Parkinson's disease. "
04/01/2008 - "To compare the effectiveness of chin-down posture and 2 consistencies (nectar or honey) of thickened liquids on the 3-month cumulative incidence of pneumonia in patients with dementia or Parkinson disease. "
04/01/2006 - "Ongoing RCTs in dysphagia are described including studies of (1) the effectiveness of the Shaker exercise versus standardized treatment in patients with severe dysphagia resulting from stroke or treatment for head and neck cancer who have been nonoral for at least three months; (2) the comparative effects of nectar- and honey-thickened liquids versus chin tuck posture and in patients with dementia or Parkinson's disease with or without dementia who aspirate on thin liquids; and (3) the comparative effects of muscle exercise versus sensory postural therapy for dysphagia resulting from treatment for head and neck cancer.
