Dear AJPM&R Readers,

This issue of the AJPM&R includes several articles that should be of interest to our readers. An official AAP position statement examines the nature and relevance of partnerships with industry for the conduct of research. The frequency of such collaborations requires a careful examination of the roles and responsibilities of both parties. The long-term sequelae of COVID-19 continues to receive significant attention. The characteristics of one of these complications, acute inflammatory myelopathy, are discussed in this special section. The Cochrane Corner of the quarter examines the evidence for the use of peripheral nerve blocks after hip fracture with a focus on patient outcomes. Finally, eight original research articles are published in our main section including studies on a variety of interventions such as education before joint replacement surgery, rehabilitation after hip arthroscopy, and the use of assistive devices in patients with injury to the spinal cord in a developing country.    

I hope you will enjoy reading this month's issue of the AJPM&R!

Walter R. Frontera, MD, PhD, FRCP
