In this study, we report that N-p-Tosyl-L-phenylalanine chloromethyl ketone (TPCK) inhibits HIV-1 replication in a highly-conserved manner. Further, TPCK inhibits HIV-1 replication at the late stages of its life cycle by impeding viral protease (PR) enzyme activity. Additionally, our results demonstrate that the combination of TPCK with established HIV-1 PR inhibitors shows significant synergistic inhibitory potential, suggesting the potential use of TPCK in cART regimen. Collectively, we report the anti-HIV activity of TPCK, which should be further characterized for its translational applications. PMID: 32446362 [PubMed - in process]

This study aims to investigate the influence of BAHS and associated skin reactions around the implant. A total of 45 patients were prospectively followed from implantation up to at least 1 year. Swabs were obtained at baseline, 12 weeks follow-up and during cases of inflammation (Holgers score ≥2). The microbiota was assessed using IS-proTM, a bacterial profiling method based on the interspace region between the 16S–23S rRNA genes. Detection of operational taxonomic units, the Shannon Diversity Index, sample similarity analyses and Partial Least Squares Discriminant Analysis (PLS-DA) were employed. Staphylococcus ...

Rifamycins inhibit RNA polymerase of most bacterial genera. Rifampicin remains part of combination therapy for treating tuberculosis (TB), and for treating Gram-positive prosthetic joint and valve infections, in which biofilms are prominent. Rifabutin has use for AIDS patients in treating mycobacterial infections TB and Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC), having fewer drug–drug interactions that interfere with AIDS medications. Rifabutin is occasionally used in combination to eradicate Helicobacter pylori (peptic ulcer disease). Rifapentine has yet to fulfill its potential in reducing time of treatment for TB. Rifaxim...

Authors: Rey Díaz-Rubio E, Mascort Roca JJ, Peña Forcada E, Cañones Garzón P, Tenias Burillo JM, Júdez Gutiérrez FJ Abstract Irritable bowel syndrome and functional constipation represent a relevant and common health issue. However, real-world clinical practice includes patients with constipation who may or may not have other abdominal complaints (pain, bloating, abdominal discomfort) with variable frequency. The goal of the present study was to obtain information on the workload entailed by patients with constipation and associated abdominal complaints, predominant clinica...

Authors: Majewski M, Kozlowska A, Thoene M, Lepiarczyk E, Grzegorzewski WJ Abstract The kynurenine pathway (KP) of L-tryptophan metabolism produces several neuroactive metabolites with an amino acid structure. These metabolites may play an important role in the pathophysiology of irritable bowel syndrome, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, schizophrenia, AIDS-dementia complex, depression, epilepsy and the aging process. Modulation of the KP through inhibition or stimulation of enzyme synthesis and activity can be an alternative approach to traditional therapy. Furthermore, it may be res...
