We report the case of a 43-year-old man who used a long steel rope, attached between his neck and a streetlight, and started his vehicle, causing a complete decapitation. The results of the autopsy provided information on the morphology of the cervical lesions, but also on the causes of death. In spite of decapitation, the histological examination of the organs confirmed the presence of asphyxiation process by a mechanical origin that occurred before decapitation.

Antidepressants are increasingly recognized to have anti-inflammatory properties in addition to their ability to treat major depressive disorders. To explore if engagement of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptors was required for the anti-inflammatory effect of the tetracyclic antidepressant mianserin, a series of structural derivatives were generated with the aim of reducing 5-HT receptor binding. Primary human peripheral blood mononuclear cells were used to screen for anti-inflammatory activity. The lead compound demonstrated a significant loss in 5-HT receptor binding, as assessed by non-selective 5-HT binding of radiola...
