Differentiation of Neural Stem Cells Derived from Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells into Dopaminergic Neurons.

Differentiation of Neural Stem Cells Derived from Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells into Dopaminergic Neurons. Methods Mol Biol. 2019;1919:89-96 Authors: Daadi MM Abstract Dopaminergic (DA) neurons are involved in many critical functions within the central nervous system (CNS), and dopamine neurotransmission impairment underlies a wide range of disorders from motor control deficiencies, such as Parkinson's disease (PD), to psychiatric disorders, such as alcoholism, drug addictions, bipolar disorders, schizophrenia and depression. Neural stem cell-based technology has potential to play an important role in developing efficacious biological and small molecule therapeutic products for disorders with dopamine dysregulation. Various methods of differentiating DA neurons from pluripotent stem cells have been reported. In this chapter, we describe a simple technique using dopamine-inducing factors (DIFs) to differentiate neural stem cells (NSCs), isolated from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) into DA neurons.

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...

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 ...

YY was prepared by treating NaY with Y(NO3)3 solution twice via liquid ion-exchange method. NaY and YY were both characterized by XRD, SEM, N2 adsorption, XRF, NH3-TPD, and pyridine-FTIR techniques. Adsorption isother...
