Changing Alcohol Use and ER Visits

Join us for a webinar on Apr 10, 2019 at 2:00 PM EDT.Register now!Among adults 18 and older, alcohol use is increasing, particularly for females. Alcohol use among middle- and high-school students is declining, but primarily for young males. Previously large gaps in alcohol use for teen males and females have disappeared.

In Jiangsu (China), however, it is not known which one of the prognostic factors explains the survival disparities among patients with CRC. This prospective study using 1078 patients (stages I-IV) that underwent surgery at Jiangsu Hospital, explored the relevant factors affecting the prog...

Conclusion SGLT-2i treatment improved the liver function test results and reduced the body weight in NAFLD patients over a period of 12-24 months. This improvement was greater in patients with higher ALT values at baseline than in those with lower values. PMID: 31308341 [PubMed - in process]

However, stable cycling of LMBs has long been restrained by the extremely unstable interfaces between the Li metal anode and liquid electrolyte. Here, we found that low-cost polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) polymer can be applied as an effective protection layer for Li metal anodes in both...

Authors: Ye Q, Zhang Y, Fu J, Zou Y, Zhao W, Chen C, Liu K Abstract The purpose of this experiment is to establish a rat model of thin endometrium and to explore the effect of ligustrazine on the thin endometrium of rats. The thin endometrium model was made by using infusing absolute ethyl alcohol into the uterine cavity. The thickness of endometrium was measured. Hematoxylin-Eosin (HE) staining was used to observe the histopathological changes of endometrium. The mRNA levels of VEGF, VEGFR-2, PI3K, and AKT were detected by RT-PCR. Western blotting was used to detect the levels of VEGF, VEGFR-2, PI3K, and AKT in en...

BludenkoAbstractThe radiolysis of propanol, diglyme, acetone, 2-butanone and 4-methyl-2 pentanone is compared at boiling and at ambient conditions. Boiling affects the composition and yields of radiolytic products. Keto-enol tautomerization is manifested as a reason for increasing the yield of water, acids and some oxygen-containing unsaturated products in irradiated boiling ketones. The yield of ketone degradation at room temperature is almost 1/3 lower than that...

Publication date: Available online 17 July 2019Source: Biochemical Engineering JournalAuthor(s): Baranse Ozturk, James Winterburn, Maria Gonzalez-MiquelAbstractOrange peel waste (OPW) can be an effective feedstock for extraction of natural bioactive components such as limonene, a high value-added chemical broadly exploited for food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industrial applications. Extraction of limonene from OPW has been conventionally performed via solvent extraction using hexane, a hazardous petrochemical solvent currently restricted under international regulations. In this work, we have conducted a comparative asse...
