Heavy drinking leads to heart attacks causing toxic iron to build up

Researchers from Anglia Ruskin University found women from regions where alcohol consumption is high have greater iron levels in their bodies and are more likely to die from heart issues.

Publication date: Available online 19 October 2018Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Aleksandra M. Herman, Theodora DukaAbstractAlcohol misuse is a major public concern. Impulsivity has been recognised as a significant risk factor predisposing for the initiation of alcohol use, continuation and excessive alcohol use. Evidence suggests that impulsivity is also a result of both acute alcohol intoxication and long-term alcohol abuse. The multifaceted character of impulsivity and the various ways of assessing it in humans and animal models, hampers the full understanding of how impulsivity relates to alc...

Authors: Piechowski-Jozwiak B, Bogousslavsky J Abstract The studies on the relation between artistic production, especially visual art, and brain function gave a basis to the development of neuroesthetics. Most of the information on brain artistic creativity comes from studies on brain disease in well-established visual artists. Brain disease may cause change, dissolution, or emergence of artistic creativity. The visual artistic production may become impaired in individuals with a variety of brain diseases, including focal and generalised disorders of sudden and slowly progressive onset. In addition to that, neurol...

In this study, we investigated the effects of pentoxifylline on inflammation-related colon tumorigenesis in a rodent model using Kyoto APC delta rats, which have APC mutation and are susceptible to colon carcinogenesis. Male Kyoto APC delta rats were treated with azoxymethane and dextran sodium sulfate, and were subsequently administered water, with or without pentoxifylline. At the end of the experiment, the development of colorectal tumor was significantly inhibited in the pentoxifylline group. The pentoxifylline treatment also lowered the levels of oxidative stress markers and mRNAs of pro-inflammatory cytokines, includ...

ConclusionsGiven that transgender and gender diverse youth report lower levels of connectedness and safety, bolstering an explicitly transgender and gender diverse–friendly network of caring parents, safe and supportive schools, and connections to adults in the community may support efforts to eliminate disparities in depression, suicidality, and substance use.

In this paper, an aliphatic anion-exchange membrane was prepared from quaternized polyvinyl alcohol (QPVA) via dual cross-linking through annealing treatment and condensation reaction to restrain the membrane water swelling. The Wu% of QPVA...

We present a 38-year-old man with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and loss of weight who underwent18F-FDG PET/CT to rule out a pancreatic malignancy. PET/CT imaging features of groove pancreatitis are distinct from the other subsets of chronic pancreatitis, such as alcoholic and autoimmune pancreatitis, and helpful in the diagnosis and planning further management of the patient.

AbstractDrug-induced liver injury (DILI), herbal-induced liver injury, and herbal and dietary supplement (HDS)-induced liver injury are an important aspect of drug safety. Knowledge regarding responsible drugs, mechanisms, risk factors, and the diagnostic tools to detect liver injury have continued to grow in the past year. This review highlights what we considered the most significant publications from among more than 1800 articles relating to liver injury from medications, herbal products, and dietary supplements in 2017 and 2018. The US Drug-Induced Liver Injury Network (DILIN) prospective study highlighted several area...

We present a case of a 36-year-old female presenting with recurrent abdominal pain, diabetes and chronic calcific pancreatitis. She was diagnosed to have FCPD based on her findings. She was managed with insulin, pancreatic enzyme supplementation and analgesics for pain relief. Due to her intractable pain poorly responding to medical management, she underwent Roux-en-Y pancreaticojejunostomy but later developed massive pericardial effusion hemorrhagic in nature with pleural effusion and ascitis. Analysis showed high possibility of adenocarcinoma though the primary focus could not be confirmed as the patient developed sepsis...
