Prevalence and factors associated with the use of acupuncture and Chinese medicine: results of a nationally representative survey of 17  161 Australian women.

CONCLUSIONS: Women with chronic conditions (including arthritis, low iron, CFS and endometriosis) were associated with higher odds of CM/acupuncture use. There is a need for further research to examine the potential benefits of CM/acupuncture for these chronic illnesses. PMID: 28279972 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractNine new monomacrolide sesquiterpene pyridine alkaloids, macroregelines  A–I (1–9), were isolated from the stems ofTripterygium regelii, along with a known alkaloid, tripfordine  B. The structures of all the isolated compounds were characterized by extensive one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopic analyses, as well as high-resolution electrospray-ionization mass spectrometry (HRESIMS) data. Compounds4,5,6, and8 showed antiproliferative effect on human rheumatoid arthritis synovial cell line MH7A at concentration of 20  μM, reducing t...
