SalemAbstractThe primary objective of this study was to enhance the antitumor efficacy of a model cancer vaccine through co-delivery of pentaerythritol lipid A (PELA), an immunological adjuvant, and a model tumor antigen, ovalbumin (OVA), separately loaded into polyanhydride particles (PA). In vitro experiments showed that encapsulation of PELA into PA (PA-PELA) significantly enhanced its stimulatory capacity on...

The identification of mutations in the amyloid precursor protein (APP) and PSEN1 and PSEN2 that cause autosomal dominantly inherited Alzheimer ’s disease (AD) and result in increased production of aggregation-prone forms of amyloid-β (Aβ) established beyond a doubt that APP processing and the production of Aβ peptides are intimately involved in the disease process and led to the proposal of and support for the amyloid cascade hypothes is for AD (1,2). Despite its strengths, the amyloid cascade hypothesis is incomplete without addressing the essential role of amyloid-associated proteins [for reviews, see (3,4)].

Authors: Kruthiventi SC, Kane GC, Sprung J, Weingarten TN, Warner ME Abstract Patients with pulmonary hypertension are at increased risk for postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs). Herein, we review PPCs in pulmonary hypertension patients undergoing non-cardiac procedures under general anesthesia. The medical records of pulmonary hypertension patients who underwent surgery with general anesthesia between 2010 and 2017 were reviewed for PPCs. In addition we reviewed nursing-documented respiratory depressive episodes in the post-anesthesia care unit to assess the associations between these episodes and later PP...
