Goodman, Balaji Narasimhan, Aliasger K. SalemAbstractThe primary objective of this study was to enhance the antitumor efficacy of a model cancer vaccine through co-delivery of pentaerythritol lipid A (PELA), an immunological adjuvant, and a model tumor antigen, ovalbumin (OVA), separately loaded into polyanhydride particles (PA). In vitro experiments showed that encapsulation of PELA into PA (PA-PELA) significantly enhanced its stimulatory capacity on...

The identification of mutations in the amyloid precursor protein (APP) and PSEN1 and PSEN2 that cause autosomal dominantly inherited Alzheimer ’s disease (AD) and result in increased production of aggregation-prone forms of amyloid-β (Aβ) established beyond a doubt that APP processing and the production of Aβ peptides are intimately involved in the disease process and led to the proposal of and support for the amyloid cascade hypothes is for AD (1,2). Despite its strengths, the amyloid cascade hypothesis is incomplete without addressing the essential role of amyloid-associated proteins [for reviews, see (3,4)].

Alzheimer ’s disease (AD) is characterized by the hallmark pathologies of amyloid-β (Aβ) plaques and tau tangles. Recently, many drug trials and much research have focused on preventing or removing these pathologies, especially Aβ. While some trials have been able to effect change in amyloid levels, none have succeeded in improving cognition. Although the trials may have involved patients that were too advanced for benefit with antiamyloid therapies, an inability of these drugs to protect synaptic function may have contributed to their failure.

With the advances of modern medicine, people are living longer than ever before worldwide. Consequently, an increase in patients with dementia has become a serious social concern, with Alzheimer ’s disease (AD) being the most common form of dementia. In 2015, the World Alzheimer Report estimated that approximately 46.8 million people had AD and other types of dementia worldwide. Accordingly, the number of such patients is predicted to increase to more than 131.5 million by the year 2050. Therefore, the development of new therapeutic alternatives to control AD progression and even reverse the disease is urgently needed.

Authors: Kruthiventi SC, Kane GC, Sprung J, Weingarten TN, Warner ME Abstract Patients with pulmonary hypertension are at increased risk for postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs). Herein, we review PPCs in pulmonary hypertension patients undergoing non-cardiac procedures under general anesthesia. The medical records of pulmonary hypertension patients who underwent surgery with general anesthesia between 2010 and 2017 were reviewed for PPCs. In addition we reviewed nursing-documented respiratory depressive episodes in the post-anesthesia care unit to assess the associations between these episodes and later PP...

Conclusions: Overall, Periventricular WMHs of grade 2 and over were seen in 19/34 patients, and in 7/24 controls (P value 0.044). Significantly higher grades of PVWMHs were seen in hypertensives as compared to nonhypertensives in the case group, and in women compared to men. In the control group, hypertension had no effect on severity of PVWMHs. Among both Diabetics and non-diabetics, no difference in PVWMHs was found between the case and control groups. DWMHs were, conversely, seen only in the control group. Overall, over a quarter of cognitively normal older persons had WM hyperintensities of grade 2 and over on MRI brai...

Astudy published today inJAMA Internal Medicine reports that the cannabinoid agonist nabiximols can reduce cannabis use among people with cannabis dependence when combined with behavioral therapy. Nabiximols is a nasal spray composed of purified tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) —two of the primary active components of cannabis.Study participants who received a combination of nabiximols and behavioral therapy reported using cannabis about 33% fewer days than those allocated to placebo and behavioral therapy, noted Nicholas Lintzeris, M.B.B.S., Ph.D., of Australia ’s Drug and Alcohol Services and ...
