On this basis, botulinum toxin does not seem to be a logical treatment of myofascial pain and dysfunction. PMID: 30008341 [PubMed - in process]

A characteristic feature of neuroinflammation is the activation of glial cells, such as microglia and astrocytes, in the spinal cord and brain, leading to the release of proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines. Recent studies suggest that central cytokines and chemokines are powerful neuromodulators and ...
Historically, the debilitating, recurring fevers of malaria were remedied with cinchona (quininevs. shivering) and coca (cocainevs. fatigue) —botanically, a bark and a leaf, respectively. However, quinine has direct antimalarial properties, which coca lacks. This reality did not prevent New York City’s Quichua [sic] Coca Company from falsely advertising the malaria-fighting powers of pharmaceuticals and beverages mixed with the company ’s Coca Bitters. The printer’s proof (above) of the logo for those bitters trademarked a presumably cocaine-driven Quechuan Amerindian hiking through Peruvian jungle ...
As a primary care doctor who cares for many patients with opioid-use disorder, I am invested in timely and effective strategies to curb our nation’s opioid epidemic. Because so many instances of opioid addiction and overdoses begin with or involve commonly prescribed opioids, we need multiple strategies that address the significant harms associated with prescription opioids. I am skeptical of one strategy, however: The President’s Commission and the Food and Drug Administration are promoting development of abuse-deterrent prescription opioids as the solution to our opioid problem. These technologies t...
