'Stepped' treatment reduces drinking in patients with HIV

(Yale University) People with HIV who drink too much were more likely to reduce drinking after undergoing an approach to care known as integrated stepped alcohol treatment, according to a Yale-led study. The finding supports greater use of this treatment model in HIV clinics to improve outcomes for patients with both HIV and drinking problems, the researchers said.

The amphiphilic ‘molecular cage’ geometry of CD, consisting of a hydrophobic cavity segment and hydrophilic rim segment, induces spontaneous surface segregation of CD to form a CD-enriched layer on the membrane surface. The memb...

In total, 36 microvinifications were conducted, 14 in...

However, low surface activity, poor water solubility and complex preparation process of most currently reported alternatives restrict their widespread applications. Herein, a series of nonionic urethane fluorinated surfactants (FmEGnFm) were synthesized by one-pot method ...

The reason is attributed to the reduction in ion dissociation in SCW. In order to reach higher ion dissociation and therefore increase the chance to obtain other type of zeolites, first the alkalinity atmosphere of precursor batch composition chang...
