Background: Many of those aging with HIV suffer from distal neuropathic pain (DNP) due to HIV-associated sensory neuropathy (HIV-SN). Prior studies have linked chronic pain conditions to a variant of the catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT), Val158Met. This variant confers reduced enzymatic activity and results in higher synaptic dopamine levels. Here we examined the role of Val158Met as a predictor of DNP in HIV-SN. Methods: In 1044 HIV-infected individuals enrolled in CNS HIV Antiretroviral Therapy Effects Research, an observational study across six US institutions, we characterized the relationship between Val158Met...

Conclusion: ART-naive Ethiopian HIV patients had a high prevalence of prediabetes and diabetes, with a poor agreement between HbA1c and OGTT. Diabetes was associated with inflammation, but not with adiposity and age. Diabetes was linked to insulin deficiency, rather than insulin resistance, which may represent a different entity than type 1 and 2 diabetes. This has implications for choice of drugs, when managing diabetes in African HIV patients.

Conclusion: Neuropsychiatric illness increased odds of being frail on a predominantly physical/motoric measure, but only when symptomatic. Lack of association with asymptomatic impairment may reflect the importance of functional limitation to frailty, or possibly a unique resilience phenotype. Understanding why sex and symptomatic neuropsychiatric illness are associated with frailty will be important in managing HIV-associated morbidity in aging populations.

ConclusionsThis study indicates that L-OHP treatment specifically upregulated PGE2 secretion by vascular endothelial cells, which may contribute to vascular pain, and that NSAIDs can be used to inhibit PGE2 release and attenuate L-OHP-induced hyperalgesia.

I joined a group from JDRF San Diego for a great group training ride this morning to finish off my third week of training for #ScottsDeathRide (100 miles in Death Valley this October with @erikdouds for JDRF – learn more and support us at https://diabadass.com/death-valley). I finished the week with 79.08 miles in the books (plus a handful of fun basketball sessions), and I’m feeling great!Coach Pat took us on a beautiful route that I really enjoyed! I’ll definitely ride some of those roads again to take in the views. (Stick around for a bonus clip at the end to watch my wife try to kill me with the garag...

In this study, we identified a novel antibacterial peptide, RIVELTLPRVSVRL-NH2 (named CF-14), derived from the epidermal mucus of catfish and characterized its antimicrobial activity. Analysis of antimicrobial activity and hemolytic activity of CF-14 revealed broad spectrum, high levels of antimicrobial activity and low toxicity to eukaryotic cells. CF-14 remained stable at pH values ranging from 4.0 to 12.0 and remained bioactive when exposed to high temperature. CD analysis indicated that CF-14 forms a random coil in PBS buffer and an α-helical conformation in the membrane-mimetic 2.5% SDS micelle. Additionally, th...
