CONCLUSIONS: No significant association was obtained between the four-factor structures of depression in MADRS and serotonin transporter and receptor SNPs in a study with a small sample size. This study evaluates whether depression symptom-clusters have distinct genotypic determinants and necessitates more comprehensive studies for unravelling the genetic determinants of depression.

Not even sure why I'm writing this as there's nothing I could "do", but you know what they say about talking out your problems.

Conclusions: In the acute phase of mild TBI a majority of patients has impaired olfactory function. Further patients with olfactory dysfunction are more likely to exhibit post-concussion and anxious symptoms at follow-up. Olfactory testing in the acute phase may therefore serve as a screening tool for long-term outcome. PMID: 31223039 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
A judge called her decision “heartbreaking,” but in the best interest of the woman, who is 22 weeks pregnant.
Conclusions: Findings underscore the critical role of acculturation and alcohol-related problems in cannabis use frequency and have relevant implications for preventive efforts addressing cannabis use among Latinas at risk of an AEP. PMID: 31220980 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Exposure to air pollution has been associated with a wide range of adverse health outcomes. However, the available evidence on the impact of air pollution exposures on liver enzymes is still scarce. The aim of the present study was to assess the relationship between exposure to ambient PM1, PM2.5 and PM10 during pregnancy and serum level of aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) in cord blood samples of newborns. Moreover, the association between total street length in different buffers and distance to major roads a...
Abstract 1,3,5,8-tetrachloronaphthalene (1,3,5,8-TeCN) is a Persistent Organic Pollutant (POP) that belongs to the group of polychlorinated naphthalenes (PCNs). The aim of the study was to investigate the maternal-fetal distribution and prenatal toxicity of 1,3,5,8-TeCN after its administration to pregnant Wistar rats during organogenesis. Radiolabeled 1,3,5,8-tetrachloronaphthalene-[ring-U-3H] was given by gavage at a dose of 0.3 mg per dam to evaluate its tissue distribution, and that of unlabeled 1,3,5,8-TeCN, at daily doses of 0.3, 1.0 or 3.0 mg kg b.w.-1 to assess prenatal toxicity. After a single admin...
