The objective was to characterize the pharmacological profile of 17-cyclopropylmethyl-6,7-didehydro-4,5α-epoxy-6′-ethoxycarbonyl-3,14-dihydroxyindolo [2′,3′-6,7]morphinan (TAN-452), a novel peripherally acting opioid receptor antagonist.Main methodsThe in vitro binding affinity for the μ-, δ-, and κ-opioid receptors (MOR, DOR, and KOR) and the inhibition of [35S]GTPγS binding were examined using membrane preparations from recombinant human (h) MOR, DOR, or KOR expressing cell. In vivo assays were performed to determine the inhibitory effect of TAN-452 on morphine-induced emesis ...

Publication date: Available online 21 July 2018Source: Pharmacology Biochemistry and BehaviorAuthor(s): Vaibhav Walia, Chanchal Garg, Munish GargAbstractPresent study was carried out to investigate the ‘anxiolytic-like’ effect of pyridoxine in mice. Pyridoxine (90, 180 and 360 mg/kg) was administered by intraperitoneal (i.p.) route to the experimental mice and anxiety-related behavior was evaluated by light and dark box (LDB) and elevated plus maze (EPM) models. Glutamate, GABA and nitrite levels were also determined in the isolated whole brain of mice. It was observed that pyridoxine (180 mg/kg, i.p.) exer...

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...

In conclusion, the novelty of this matter has generated an expansion of literature data with the unavoidable consequence that some reports are often based on low levels of evidence. Therefore, only studies performed on large samples with the inclusion of control groups will be able to clearly establish whether the large information from the literature regarding extra-intestinal NCGS manifestations could be supported by evidence-based agreements.

Modern life is full of emotional challenges. The pressure to succeed, need to “keep up,” fear of missing out and desire for good relationships and work satisfaction can all evoke volatile combinations of emotions. However, what we learn in our society is not how to work with our emotions, but how to block and avoid them. We do it quite well: Between alcohol use, prescription drug use and screen time, there are a multitude of ways to avoid our feelings. When we do acknowledge them, we swat them away with mantras learned since childhood. (“Mind over matter,” “get a grip” and “suck it...

I was diagnosed with celiac disease ("celiac") in 2012. As a result, my life changed dramatically.

Growing up a musically-obsessed child in the 80's, Daryl Hall was one of my biggest inspirations. A masterful, inventive songwriter with an ocean of soul, he set me on the path to being an artist, to never waste a word, and to sing because I mean it. With six number ones and five additional top ten hits throughout the 70's and 80's Daryl Hall and John Oates are the number one duo in music history. Still at the top of his game at 69 years old, Daryl has won legions of new fans with his hit MTV Live show Live From Daryl's House. In February of 2015, at my very sickest from chronic Lyme and Bartonella, after it was missed b...

Discussion Appendicitis results from a closed loop obstruction of a blind-ending tubular structure arising from the cecum. It is a common cause of abdominal pain. It is the most frequent condition leading to emergent abdominal surgery in pediatrics. The combination of obstruction, edema, bacterial overgrowth, increased inflammatory process and increased intraluminal pressure leads to abdominal pain and possibly perforation. Appendicitis occurs in all age groups but is rare in neonates. The peak age is 6-10 years old. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an inflammatory disease of the uterus, fallopian tubes and adjacent p...

Rebecca shared her photos and experience living the Wheat Belly lifestyle: “Eliminating wheat has made such a huge difference in my health and, surprisingly, my appearance. I am 42 and have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. I’m also a single mom of four and was told that it was ‘normal’ for me to be tired. But I was miserable. I was so tired it hurt despite having thyroid levels that were in the normal range. I also had brain ‘fog,’ anxiety, depression, and trouble sleeping. Doctor after doctor kept prescribing me more medicine: medicine for my mood, medicine to help me sleep. And despite a...
