Here we use bac TRAP to access translating mRNAs. We confirm a role for the transcription factor Tcf7l2 in the MHb in both glucose homeostasis and nicotine intake.

Jeffrey A. SingerIn his State of the Union Address earlier this year, President Trump announced the laudable goal ofeliminating HIV transmission by the year 2030. Needle exchange programs (also called Syringe Exchange Programs or SEPs) are a public health approach in use since the 1980s with a proven record of reducing the spread of HIV, hepatitis, and other blood-borne infectious diseases. I have presented much of the data su pporting needle exchange programshere and, more recently,here. Now, new research reported in theJournal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromeadds even more strength to the argument in favor of ...

Abstract Adverse childhood experiences are associated with many poor health outcomes. Research has demonstrated associations between childhood trauma and increased incidence of heart disease, lung disease, cancer, mental health disorders, addiction, and a host of autoimmune diseases including diabetes. Current understanding of the mechanisms of injury relies on numerous theoretical frameworks and diagnostic criteria. Radiologic technologists can improve patient care by using research-validated techniques for promoting resilience when working with patients and families affected by adverse childhood experiences. ...

This article summarizes recent experimental and epidemiological data on the toxic and beneficial effects of ethanol and its metabolites (acetaldehyde), and focuses on their immunomodulatory effects. The section dealing with the toxic effects of alcohol focuses on its chronic toxicity (liver disorders, carcinogenic effects, cardiovascular disorders, neuropsychic disorders, addiction and withdrawal syndrome, hematologic disorders, reprotoxicity, osteoporosis) although acute toxicity is considered. The role of oxidative metabolism of ethanol by alcohol dehydrogenase, cytochrome P450 2E1, and aldehyde dehydrogenase, as well as...

Illness is universal, health care is not. Over half of the world’s 7.3 billion people, including 1 billion in rural communities, lack access to health care. Approximately 13 million children still go without a single dose of any vaccine. Nearly 9 million newborns, children and mothers still die each year from preventable or treatable conditions. Compounding this crisis is a massive health-worker shortage, forecast to grow to 18 million by 2030. Training more doctors is necessary, but because doctors are concentrated in cities, they alone are insufficient to close this gap. What if the residents of rural communities&n...

In the beginning, there were single-cell bacteria. They were the only life on earth for billions of years, then larger cells evolved, then multicellular organisms, and then plants and animals. But the bacteria never went away, and all organisms, including us humans, have had to learn to live with them. Today, the lessons they are teaching us could change the trajectory of human health for generations. When bacteria were first discovered more than three centuries ago, most attention was on the ones we fought, which caused diseases like cholera, typhoid and tuberculosis. Through vaccines and antibiotics, we have made amazing...
