In 2017, Fazel et al. developed a risk calculator (Oxford Mental Illness and Violence tool, OxMIV) to identify the risk of violent crime in pati...

l A Abstract Nesfatin-1, a pleotropic peptide, was recently implicated in the regulation of anxiety and depression-like behavior in rats. However, the underlying mechanisms remain unclear so far. Thus, this study aimed to investigate the role of endogenous nesfatin-1 in the mediation of anxiety and depression-like behavior induced by corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF). Therefore, normal weight male intracerebroventricularly (icv) cannulated Sprague Dawley rats received two consecutive icv injections of anti-nesfatin-1 antibody or IgG control antibody followed by CRF or saline, before being exposed to a behaviora...

This study also demonstrated that TREM-1 expression was upregulated following cerebral infarction in rats. TREM-1 inhibition was determined using its selective inhibitor, LP17, which indicated a neuroprotective effect on cerebral infarction damage. The findings revealed that inhibition of TREM-1 by administering LP17 improved cerebral damage and decreased ischemic areas and brain water contents. Moreover, LP17 decreased MCAO-induced microglial activation and neurodegeneration, evidenced by a reduction in the expression of microglial Iba-1 and FJ-B positive cells, and reversed neuronal loss. Besides, the contribution of LP1...

Abstract As a typical kind of bioactive flavonoid glycoside, rutin and its aglycone quercetin possess similar chemical structures and properties. It still remains a challenge to achieve reliably and accurately detection of rutin in the presence of quercetin. In this work, a simple fluorescent method combining water-dispersed silicon nanoparticles (SiNPs) with bovine serum albumin (BSA) were constructed for the selective detection of rutin in the presence of quercetin and other common compounds in traditional Chinese herbs. SiNPs with high fluorescent quantum yield and good thermostability were prepared by one-pot ...

AbstractBackground and purposeMental health has emerged as an important public health concern in recent years. With a high proportion of children and adolescents affected by mental disorders, it is important to ensure that they are provided with proper care and treatment. With the goal of sharing the activities and good practices on child and adolescent mental health promotion, care, and treatment in Japan and the Philippines, the National Center for Global Health and Medicine conducted a training program on the promotion of mental health focused on treatment and care in Japan and the Philippines in September and November ...
