Authors: Hormoznejad R, Mohammad Shahi M, Rahim F, Helli B, Alavinejad P, Sharhani A Abstract A double-blind placebo-controlled randomised clinical trial was conducted on 41 patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Participants were randomly allocated to receive either a cranberry supplement or a placebo for 12 weeks. Both groups were assigned to follow a weight loss diet. At the end of the study, alanine aminotransferase and insulin decreased significantly in both groups (p

Authors: Tabler J, Mykyta L, Chernenko A, Flores P, Marquez A, Saenz N, Stocker R Abstract OBJECTIVE: Although substantial research has explored the Hispanic health paradox (HHP) and suggests that Latinx immigrants experience positive health outcomes relative to those born in the United States, less research has assessed the role of immigration status. Our aim was to examine this role in Latinx health. METHODS: Using survey data collected at two free/reduced-cost clinics in southernmost Texas, we examined differences in the mental and self-rated health, substance, alcohol, and tobacco use of low-income patients...

AbstractYouth living with HIV (YLWH; aged 16 –24) are at elevated risk of alcohol and drug use. Studies in older populations have identified patterns or profiles of multiple substance use differentially associated with mental health and anti-retroviral therapy (ART) adherence. No studies of YLWH have yet examined such patterns. A sample of 1 79 YLWH, reporting ART non-adherence and alcohol use, were recruited at five Adolescent Trials Network clinics in urban areas of the US between November 2014 and August 2017. Participants completed the Alcohol Smoking and Substance Involvement Screening Test (ASSIST) to assess su...

The objective of this study is to present a practical example of a scale-independent design space development using a step-wise approach. A detailed description of the development process with a systematic outline of the main steps is provided. Design space is developed for film coating of tablets with moisture protective polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) based coating. The impact of scale-independent coating process parameters on the properties of film-coated tablets (FCT), i.e. water activity and film coating protection ability, and consequently on product long-term stability is explored. The main finding is that with model simpli...
