AMA Foundation Healthy Living Grant Program

AMA Foundation Healthy Living Grant Program The application deadline is Friday, September 12 at 5 PM CST. In 2014, the AMA Foundation will award Healthy Living Grants to support prescription medication saftey projects. Supported by Purdue Pharma L.P. with additional support provided by Teva Pharmaceutical. Promoting and establishing healthy behaviors for younger people is more effective, and often easier, than efforts to change unhealthy behaviors already established in adults. The Healthy Living Grant Program supports health education programs to develop school and community-based solutions to behavioral health challenges. In 2012, the Healthy Living Grant program awarded grants to 25 nonprofit organizations educating young people about prescription medication safety. In 2014, this program will once again fund projects in the area of: Prescription Medication Safety, supported by an unrestricted grant from Purdue Pharma L.P. with additional support from Teva Pharmaceuticals: Educational and awareness programs about the dangers of prescription drug abuse, targeted to children, parents or schools.

Authors: Khairnar H, Ingle M, Chauhan S, Pipalia N, Sawant P, Pandey V, Shukla A Abstract Introduction: Computed Tomography of abdomen frequently shows bowel wall thickening with different grades and characteristic of thickening. The correlation of bowel wall thickening (BWT) with endoscopic findings is not well described in Indian population. Therefore we did this study to determine the correlation of BWT with endoscopic findings. Methods: Its Prospective single center study with 85 Consecutive patients with age group more than 12 years with CT scan abdomen showing bowel wall thickening were included in the st...

The preparation method includes reduction of deposited graphene oxide (GO) on the Glassy Carbon Electrode (GCE), and reduction of deposited CuCl2-PdCl2 on reduced graphene oxide. Both reduction steps are performed using 2% aqueous Zn/HCl solution. During the second step, palladium-copper bimetallic nanonetwork was creat...

Abstract The use of dogs as animal model for human atopic dermatitis (AD) is well known. Striking similarities in the pathogenesis of AD have been demonstrated. Similar alteration of host defense peptides (HDP) have been identified in both species. However, the ultrastructural/molecular alterations associated with HDPs secretion in AD have not been elucidated. We were able to use a multidisciplinary approach to investigate the secretion of HDP in canine skin. The contemporary use of indirect immunofluorescence, ELISA and scanning immune-electron microscopy gave fundamental insights in the pathomechanism of HDP alt...

In this study, we identified a novel antibacterial peptide, RIVELTLPRVSVRL-NH2 (named CF-14), derived from the epidermal mucus of catfish and characterized its antimicrobial activity. Analysis of antimicrobial activity and hemolytic activity of CF-14 revealed broad spectrum, high levels of antimicrobial activity and low toxicity to eukaryotic cells. CF-14 remained stable at pH values ranging from 4.0 to 12.0 and remained bioactive when exposed to high temperature. CD analysis indicated that CF-14 forms a random coil in PBS buffer and an α-helical conformation in the membrane-mimetic 2.5% SDS micelle. Additionally, th...

BuenoAbstractNanocomposite polymer membranes based on PVA/TiO2 were prepared by a solution casting method. Glutaraldehyde solution (GA) was used as linking agent to improve the chemical, thermal and physical properties of the membranes. The degree of cross-linking was varied by changing the reaction time. The phase behavior of the membranes was examined by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). High resolution SEM micrographs show that the TiO2 nanoparticle...
