Will I lose my license for that? A closer look at Canadian disciplinary hearings and what it means for pharmacists' practice to full scope - Foong EA, Grindrod KA, Houle SKD.

OBJECTIVE: Concerns about liability from clinical errors have been cited as a barrier preventing greater adoption of practice change. Our objective was to determine the most common actions or omissions that result in disciplinary action for pharmacists and...

In this study, we compared the transcriptome between female pheromone glands (including the ovipositor) and female and male tarsi to identify differences between these tissues, particularly the genes involved in sex pheromone biosynthesis and chemosensation. We found transcripts encoding 11 fatty acyl-CoA desaturases, 20 fatty acyl-CoA reductases, 8 alcohol oxidases, some G protein-coupled receptors and many transcripts involved in signal transduction and pheromone transportation. Also we found gustatory and olfactory receptors associated with the tarsi and ovipositor. Differential expression analysis showed that there wer...

Conclusions Dating app users did not seem to have an increased risk of acquiring CT and for dating app users the seemingly well-established risk factor of having many partners was not valid.

In this study, using a rat model of chronic alcohol dependence, we analysed the impact of GOS on possible alterations in the gut microbiota and intestinal permeability. Through 16S rRNA sequencing, we found that GOS markedly changed the gut microbiota composition and resolved microbiome dysbiosis induced by chronic alcohol consumption. Moreover, compared with alcohol dependence, GOS supplementation after alcohol detoxification downregulated alcohol withdrawal scores and decreased diamine oxidase (DAO), D-lactate and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) serum concentrations. GOS treatment also altered the short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) ...

Background: Alcohol use influences HIV disease severity through multiple mechanisms. Whether HIV disease severity is sensitive to changes in alcohol use among people with HIV (PWH) is understudied. Setting: National Veterans Health Administration. Methods: Pairs of AUDIT-C screens within 9–15 months (February 1, 2008–September 30, 2014) were identified among PWH from the Veterans Aging Cohort Study (VACS). Initial and follow-up VACS Index 2.0 pairs obtained 0–270 days after initial and follow-up AUDIT-Cs, respectively, determined change in VACS Index 2.0, a composite HIV severity measure. Change i...

ConclusionEthanolic extract and E-lychnophoric, chlorogenic, cinnamic and caffeic acids, rutin, lupeol and stigmasterol presented anti-inflammatory and anti-hyperuricemic actvities. These compounds are responsible for the activities presented by the ethanolic extract of L. pinaster. Ethanolic extract and its chemical constituents can be considered promising agents in the therapeutic of inflammation, hyperuricemia and gout.Graphical abstract

This morning, in a win for wine-drinkers and freedom-lovers alike (but I repeat myself), the Supreme Courtstruck down a heavily restrictive Tennessee law that prevented anyone but longtime state residents from getting liquor licenses. The provisions required applicants for an initial license to have lived in the state for two years and for a renewal of that to reside for 10 years, and prevented corporations from getting licenses unless all stockholders were residents. This hurt both would-be small business owners and large distributors like Total Wine&More (one of the parties; full disclosure: I have reserve status in ...

Publication date: Available online 25 June 2019Source: Neurochemistry InternationalAuthor(s): Dimitrios E. Kouzoukas, Jennifer A. Schreiber, Nuzhath F. Tajuddin, Simon Kaja, Edward J. Neafsey, Hee-Yong Kim, Michael A. CollinsAbstractChronic alcoholism promotes brain damage that impairs memory and cognition. High alcohol levels in adult rats also cause substantial neurodamage to memory-linked regions, notably, the hippocampus (HC) and entorhinal cortex (ECX). Concurrent with neurodegeneration, alcohol elevates poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1) and cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) levels. PARP-1 triggers necrosis whe...
