Crossed Total Hemiatrophy Associated with Atrophoderma of Pasini-Pierini.

Crossed Total Hemiatrophy Associated with Atrophoderma of Pasini-Pierini. Skinmed. 2017;15(3):227-229 Authors: Zhang RZ, Zhu WY Abstract A 45-year-old Chinese man had begun to show asymmetry of the face 30 years previously. Subsequently, he developed visual extinction of the right eye, slight numbness, and weakness of the left extremities. Simultaneously, multiple atrophic brownish patches occurred on his side. He denied prior trauma or tick bites at those sites. There was no report of preceding redness, induration, or a history of trauma. The atrophic lesions extended and enlarged slowly. Ten years previously, some brownish patches with normal texture had appeared on the right side of the trunk. There was no further progression of the lesions. In November 2010, the patient consulted our department for the final diagnosis and prognosis of his disease. He did not suffer from epileptic seizures and had no history of a tick bite or Lyme disease. PMID: 28705290 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 17 September 2019Source: Multiple Sclerosis and Related DisordersAuthor(s): Mihaela Bustuchina VlaicuAbstractThis is a review paper, essentially a commentary with summary of literature that actualizes the problem of epilepsy in patients with multiple sclerosis. There is a bidirectional relation between multiple sclerosis and epilepsy. A possible associate pathophysiological pathway is considered. In multiple sclerosis, a combination of grey matter involvement and inflammation could influence epileptogenesis. Patients with multiple sclerosis have individual profiles and an inter-individual...

In this study, a specific and sensitive LC-MS/MS method has been developed and validated, for the quantification of ilaprazole enantiomers in the rat plasma, using R-lansoprazole as the internal standard. The enantioseparation was achieved on a CHIRALPAK AS-RH column (4.6 mm × 150 mm, i.d. 5 μm), with a mobile phase composed of 10 mM ammonium acetate aqueous solution and acetonitrile (60:40, v/v), at a flow-rate of 0.5 mL/min. The method was validated over the concentration range of 0.5–300 ng/mL for both, R- and S -ilaprazole. The lower limit of quantification was 0.5 ng/mL for both enanti...

ConclusionsOur data show that KLHTT has anti-neutrophilic inflammatory effects in inhibiting ROS generation and cell adhesion. KLHTT also mitigated NET formation, mainly via an ROS-dependent pathway. In addition, KLHTT reduced neutrophil infiltration and improved the severity of IMQ-induced psoriasis-like skin inflammation in mice. Therefore, KLHTT may prove to be a safe and effective psoriasis therapy in the future.Graphical abstract

Phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) can convert insoluble forms of phosphorus (P) to accessible forms. Five highly efficient PSB strains, H22, Y11, Y14, Y34, and S32, were screened and isolated from an alfalfa rhizosphere in heavy metal-contaminated reclamation area in Shanxi Province, China. Based on morphological observations, 16S rRNA sequencing, cellular fatty acid composition analysis, and the BIOLOG test, H22, Y11, and Y34 were identified as Pseudomonas sp., while Y14 and S32 were identified as Pantoea sp. Among them, S32 showed the highest P-solubilizing efficiency in culture medium containing Ca3(PO4)2, lecithin,...

In this study the effects of caffeine exposure on the pentylenetetrazole (PTZ) induced seizure thresholds and seizure stages in the Wistar and genetic absence epilepsy model offsprings were examined. Adult female and male Wistar rats and genetic absence epilepsy rats from Strasbourg (GAERS) consumed caffeine dissolved in water (0.3 g/L) before conception, during the gestational periods and lactation period whereas control groups of each strain received tap water. All offsprings at postnatal day 30 (PN30) subjected to 70 mg/kg of PTZ were evaluated in terms of overall seizure stages, the latency to the first g...

Science is just beginning to understand how important your mitochondria are to warding off the diseases of aging. And, as usual, mainstream medicine is lagging way behind. Along with your telomeres, the cellular time keepers at the ends of your chromosomes, your mitochondria are another key component of the anti-aging equation. You see, these tiny organelles in your cells are the power plants that turn fuel into energy for your body. Healthy mitochondria keep you young and energetic.  Research shows that damaged mitochondria can lead to: Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder; Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s d...
