For perspective on the tenacious problem with childhood lead exposure in the United States, one can look to the Environmental Health and Lead Clinic at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC). Approximately half a million U.S. children have elevated blood lead levels (BLLs),1 and the busy ...

CONCLUSIONS: The concept of soldier-centered care often emerges in discussions about optimal physical performance and medical readiness for soldiers. Although soldier-centered care and patient-centered care have similar conceptual underpinning, it is important to clarify the unique physical and medical requirements for soldiers that differentiate soldier-centered care from patient-centered care. Implementing the defining attributes of soldier-centered care in the U.S. Army primary care setting may improve the quality of care and health outcomes for soldiers. When defining performance metrics for primary care models of care...

Publication date: Available online 17 January 2020Source: Food ChemistryAuthor(s): Shuyi Li, Junsheng Li, Zhenzhou Zhu, Shuiyuan Cheng, Jingren He, Olusola LamikanraAbstractIn order to further determine the interaction between polysaccharides and polyphenols, the complex of soluble dietary fiber (SDF) and two phenols were prepared. According to the results, at the conditions of pH=4, temperature=60°C, concentration ratio of polysaccharide and phenol=4:1, the maximum adsorption of catechin and gallic acid in the SDF complex was 155.74 and 134.05 mg/g, respectively. Due to UV-Vis and FT-IR analysis, it could be speculate...

This study aimed to quantify hot water pretreatment-induced changes in metabolite profiles of sea cucumber body walls. ICP-OES, GC-MS, and LC-MS analyses of untreated- (UT-BW), hot water-treated body walls (HW-BW) of Apostichopus japonicus, and the hot water extract (HW-E) determined significant losses of minerals (25-50% w/w), protein (∼11% w/w), carbohydrate (33% w/w), saponins (∼41% w/w), and spermidine (100%), a potential antipsychotic from hot water-treated samples. Multivariate comparisons of HW-BW with UT-BW and HW-BW with HW-E showed increases in amino acids and fatty acids, suggesting hot water-induced deg...

Conclusion. This large systematic review of over 11,000 participants demonstrates that topical diclofenac is effective for acute pain, such as sprains and strains, with minimal AEs. The effectiveness of topical diclofenac was also demonstrated in chronic musculoskeletal pain, such as osteoarthritis, but with a higher NNT (worse) compared with acute pain. Again, the incidence of AEs was low. Formulation does play a part in effectiveness, and studies are needed to investigate this further. Studies of chronic pain outside of osteoarthritis would also be helpful. PMID: 31944135 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

HossanAbstractThe reactions for 5-arylazo-2-chloroacetamido-4-methylthiazole with various 2-mercaptobenzothiazole and malononitrile were afforded the corresponding thiobenzothiazolyl and amino-pyrrolidinone derivatives, respectively. The prepared 4-methyl-5-(phenylarylazo)thiazol-2-yl derivatives have been elucidated by spectral performances (FT-IR, 1HNMR and MS) and elemental analyses. The synthesized compounds were subjected to quantum chemical calculations at DFT/B3LYB level to shed light on their electronic and chemic...
