Voudouris, Anashe Shahmirian, Deanna Herbert, Nicole Braganza, Ana Gugila, Bryan M. Dechairo, James L. KennedyAbstractFailed medication trials are common in the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD); however, the use of combinatorial pharmacogenomics to guide medication selection has been previously associated with improved outcomes in the psychiatric care setting. The utility of combinatorial pharmacogenomics in patients with MDD in primary care and psychiatric care settin...

ConclusionsACEs have a direct and indirect, via depression, negative effect on how adult individuals perceive other people's attitude towards themselves. Additionally, negative AoO mediates the effects of ACEs on depression. Childhood EmoNeg associates specifically with negative AoO and DEPS in adulthood.

This study aimed to investigate the activity of RIP II in a corticosterone-induced depression mice model. Corticosterone (20 mg/kg, s.c.) was administered once a day for 21 days. RIP II (50 mg/kg, p.o.) or fluvoxamine (FLU, 50 mg/kg, standard antidepressant, p.o.) was administered after corticosterone (CORT) injection, for the last 7 days of CORT treatment. Mice were exposed to the following behavioral tests: forced swimming, tail suspension, open field, sucrose preference, elevated plus maze and ymaze. After behavioral evaluation, brain areas (prefrontal cortex, hippocampus and striatum) were dissected for neurochem...

Publication date: Available online 21 July 2018Source: Colloids and Surfaces A: Physicochemical and Engineering AspectsAuthor(s): Tong-Xian Zhang, Hua-Ji Liu, Yu ChenAbstractPhotoluminescent nanomaterials with a high quantum yield (QY) is preferred in many applications. Up to the present date, only a few organo-soluble Au-Ag bimetallic nanoclusters (NCs) have ever reported to exhibit a QY of more than 20%. Herein, ultrabright Au-Ag NCs with a maximum QY of ca. 23.6 % were synthesized with the assistance of mercaptosuccinic acid (MSA) and poly(N-vinylimidazole) (PVIm) through a two-step green route, which was almost two-fol...

ConclusionsWhile HRQoL at population level is most affected by balance problems, spasticity, and depression in RRMS, the biggest HRQoL losses in PMS are caused by spasticity, paralysis, weakness, and pain. Many symptoms with the largest effects in individuals substantially contribute to the population disease burden.

Abstract The brain is a vital organ, susceptible to alterations under genetic influences and environmental experiences. Social isolation (SI) acts as a stressor which results in alterations in reactivity to stress, social behavior, function of neurochemical and neuroendocrine system, physiological, anatomical and behavioral changes in both animal and humans. During early stages of life, acute or chronic SIS has been proposed to show signs and symptoms of psychiatric and neurological disorders such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, epilepsy and memory loss. Exposure to social isolation stress induces a variety...

Liver disease deaths are growing more common in the U.S. and disproportionately affecting younger Americans, according to a recent study. The paper, published in The BMJ just a day after a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report on rising liver cancer death rates, paints a troubling picture of how Americans’ drinking habits may be affecting their health. While the new study couldn’t prove causation, the researchers say drinking is likely to blame for the growing number of adults aged 24 to 35 who are dying from cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver. The researchers used deaths logged in the CDC&r...
