Changes in burn mortality in Bangladesh: findings from Bangladesh Health and Injury Survey (BHIS) 2003 and 2016 - Mashreky SR, Shawon RA, Biswas A, Ferdoush J, Unjum A, Rahman AKMF.
PURPOSE: This paper is focused to reflect the changes in burn mortality and events leading to fatal burn injuries. METHODS: Two national community-based cross sectional health and injury surveys were done in Bangladesh during 2003 and 2016. Similar...
ConclusionThis system fully-automatically and accurately segments multiple muscle groups at all lumbar spine levels on abdominal CT for detection of sarcopenia.
ConclusionThis study demonstrated that beeswax–olive oil–butter mixture impregnated bandage treatment in a second-degree burn rat model improved burn wound healing and encouraged skin renewal via modulating tissue TGF-β1 and VEGF-α.
(American Chemical Society) Waterpipe tobacco smoking, otherwise known as 'hookah' or 'shisha,' is becoming increasingly popular worldwide, especially among youth. Traditional hookahs burn charcoal as a heat source, but recently, electrical heating elements (EHEs) have been introduced to the market. Reinforced by product advertising and package labeling, many hookah smokers believe that EHEs are less harmful than charcoal. Now, researchers report in ACS' Chemical Research in Toxicology that although EHEs reduce some toxicants, they increase others.

In this study, female C57/BL6 mice were assigned randomly to either sham burn or 30% total body surface area (TBSA) full thickness burn. The effects of ER stress and autophagy on intestinal epithelial TJ barrier were validated by inducing or inhibiting both ER stress and autophagy in mice treated with sham burn or burn injury. The intestinal permeability, expression and localization of TJ proteins, ER stress and autophagy were assessed by physiological, morphological and biochemical analyses. The results showed that inducing ER stress with tunicamycin or thapsigargin caused the activation of autophagy, the increase of inte...

HayesAbstractCapsaicin is classically considered an irritant, due to the warming and burning sensations it elicits. Widespread consumption of chilis suggests many individuals enjoy this burn, but these sensations can be overwhelming if the burn is too intense. While substantial folklore exists on the ability of specific beverages to mitigate capsaicin burn, quantitative data to support these claims are generally lacking. Here, we systematically tested various beverages for their ability to re...
