Knowledge and use of edible mushrooms in two municipalities of the Sierra Tarahumara, Chihuahua, Mexico

Conclusion: The studied population shows a great appreciation towards five species, mainly the A. caesarea complex, and an apparent lack of knowledge of nearly 20 species which are used as food in other areas of Mexico. There are no apparent differences among Sierra inhabitants in terms of gender, occupation, or language regarding the recognition and consumption of species. The rejection of certain species is due mainly to fear of poisoning and the traditional selective teaching of families in the mountain communities of the Sierra Tarahumara.

Conclusion: Previous suicide attempt, smoking, unemployment, and suffering from at least one mental disorder were the significant predictors of suicide death. Among mental disorders, major depressive disorder and substance use disorder were the most prevalent mental health problems. PMID: 31602433 [PubMed]

Conclusion: Patients with positive Atropine challenge test had a significantly lower level of serum cholinesterase and response to Atropine in their therapeutic management. Hence, Atropine challenge test could be considered as a useful clinical test in the setting of acute OPs poising. PMID: 31602429 [PubMed]

Publication date: November 2019Source: Harmful Algae, Volume 89Author(s): Ying Jia, Han Gao, Mengmeng Tong, Donald M. AndersonAbstractThe mixotrophic dinoflagellate Dinophysis acuminata is a widely distributed diarrhetic shellfish poisoning (DSP) producer. Toxin variability of Dinophysis spp. has been well studied, but little is known of the manner in which toxin production is regulated throughout the cell cycle in these species, in part due to their mixotrophic characteristics. Therefore, an experiment was conducted to investigate cell cycle regulation of growth, photosynthetic efficiency, and toxin production in D. acumi...

After visiting the program, I really was convinced that the rumors I had heard about low volume and lack of procedures at OHSU were false. I went and read the reviews at scutwork and found this one posted in 3/2006 that resurrected those fears. Anyone from the program care to respond. Here is the review posted below. Schedule This program had a very easy workload. 12-13 eight hour shifts over the month which includes a ride-along with paramedics and a couple hours at the poison...

CONCLUSION: With the development of interventional radio technologies, and thus extremely precise access to anatomical structures, alcohol has been given new indications - particularly as an embolization, sclerosing or ablation agent. Moreover, constant progress in our knowledge of ethanol's pharmacodynamics might highlight other therapeutic indications for this compound in the future. Ethanol's low cost and wide availability make it a valuable therapeutic agent, compared with other reference treatments. Furthermore, ethanol has a long track record of safety and effectiveness in the indications mentioned above. PMID: 3...

by Wenshan Ke, Chang Tu, Dezhi Cao, Xiong Lin, Qiqiang Sun, Qian Zhang Schistosomiasis is a serious worldwide parasitic disease. One of the best ways to control schistosomiasis is to control the population ofOncomelania hupensis snails. We sought to identify a high-efficiency biogenic molluscicide againstOncomelania with low toxicity, to avoid chemical molluscicide contamination and toxicity in aquatic organisms. We extracted quaternary benzo[c]phenanthridine alkaloids (QBAs) fromMacleaya cordata fruits. Molluscicidal activity of the QBAs againstOncomelania was determined using bioassay. Our results showed that the extrac...

Abstract Metal and nitrogen co-doped carbons (M-N/Cs) have emerged as promising alternatives to platinum-based catalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). Here, density functional theory calculations are used to investigate the adsorption of anions and impurities from the electrolyte on the active site, modelled as an M-N 4 motif embedded in a planar carbon sheet (M= Cr , Mn, Fe , Co). The two-dimensional catalyst structure implies that each metal atom has two potential active sites, one on each side of the sheet. Adsorption of anions or impurities on both sites results in poisoning, but adsorption on one o...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewKratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is an herb with no current indication for medical use with potentially addictive properties, yet it is being used in the management of pain, depression, and anxiety. The agent ’s pharmacology lends itself for concern regarding recreational misuse (Drugs of Abuse,2017).Recent FindingsKratom ’s increasing popularity for use in the USA is reflected by National Poison Data System data that in 2011 there were 13 cases reported to poison control centers while in 2017 there were 682 calls in response to kratom exposure (Kratom exposure in the US linked to serious me...
