Conclusion: This study suggests the potential effect of BCP in treating HFFD-induced metabolic and neurobehavioral alterations. BCP seems to activate PPAR-γ in a ligand-independent manner, via upregulation and activation of PGC-1α. The BCP activation of PPAR--γ seems to be CB2R-dependent.Graphical abstract

ConclusionsBased on these results it is therefore recommended that H. perforatum administration occurs 2 h before meals to provide optimal secondary health benefits associated with inhibition of postprandial stress. Additionally, these results highlight the use of in silico analyses to inform ingestion time and optimize the health benefits from ingestion of plant-based foods and medicines.GRAPHICAL ABSTRACT

BellAbstractIntroductionSelf-inflicted burns are a rare cause of injury, accounting for only 1.0% of burns in the United States. While rare, the physical and psychosocial ramifications of these injuries are lasting. The goal of this study was to examine the etiologies, risk factors and outcomes of self-inflected burns in an urban setting.MethodsRecords of all patients presented to a regional burn center from July 2011 to June 2015 were reviewed. Those who sustained a self-inflec...

Authors: Kitamura E, Kondo Y, Kanazawa N, Akutsu T, Nishiyama K, Iizuka T Abstract Autoimmune encephalitis (AE) is an immune-mediated encephalitis characterized by the subacute onset of memory deficits, altered mental status, or psychiatric symptoms. Limbic encephalitis associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has not been reported yet. A 57-year-old man presented with the subacute onset of headache, depression, and anorexia 7 months before the onset of RA. Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed symmetric parenchymal lesions involving the medial temporal lobes. He was diagnosed with RA and AE, but no autoantibodi...

This study investigated the impaired white matter by using graph theoretic analyses in a cohort of 37 MDD patients and 38 matched control subjects. In addition, we further investigated fiber tracts differences in three interregional connectivity matrixes of significant different topological regions in MDD. Our graph theoretic analyses demonstrated that 7 different regions were observed for the local measures in patients with MDD compared with control groups. These regions were the central nodes of cortical-limbic network, frontal-cingulate network, default mode network (DMN), cognitive control network(CCN)and affective net...

ConclusionsReplication studies and additional investigations exploring gene x environment and drug x environment interactions are necessary before pharmacological treatments may be adjusted based on a patient’s genetic profile.
