Publication date: Available online 17 August 2019Source: Revista Clínica Española (English Edition)Author(s): J. Masip, J.R. Germà LluchAbstractRecent epidemiological studies have shown that alcohol consumption can increase the risk of arterial hypertension, atrial fibrillation and gastrointestinal and breast cancer. Various sectors are therefore promoting abstinence from alcohol. However, light alcohol consumption has once again been shown to reduce the risk of myocardial infarction and diabetes but with an unclear effect on cerebrovascular disease. The decision to consume alcohol should therefore be ...

Publication date: Available online 17 August 2019Source: Clinica Chimica ActaAuthor(s): Wojciech Jelski, Barbara MroczkoAbstractPancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest cancers having an exceptionally high mortality rate. Despite a relatively low incidence (10th among cancers), it is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in most developed countries. Improving early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and strengthening the standardised comprehensive treatment remain the main focus of pancreatic cancer research. Tumor markers are usually tumor-associated proteins of clinical relevance in these patients. Although tumo...

Conclusions/Importance: Anti-MJ messages designed to discourage use might heighten reactance and inadvertently lead to greater craving and intent to use. The link between reactance and craving may be more affectively mediated than the link between reactance and message rejection. PMID: 31418607 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), chitosan (CS), xylan (CC) and hydroxyapatite (nHA) were used as the sources of bio-degradable polymer and curcumin (Cur) as antioxidant agent to prepare an intelligent packaging PVA/CS/CC/nHA hybrid film (PCC) to assess the fish fresh...

Conclusions: High screen time was the most prevalent lifestyle risk behavior independently associated with depressive symptoms. Multiple lifestyle changes and improvement of appearance satisfaction should be included in measures targeting adolescents for the prevention and treatment of depressive symptoms. Future studies should elaborate on the gender differences in other adolescent age groups. Appearance satisfaction should be acknowledged as an important confounder in future studies of lifestyle and depressive symptoms. PMID: 31419392 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators A: PhysicalAuthor(s): Weina Liu, Xinwei Yang, Youtian Niu, Haoran SunAbstractIn this paper, a sub-wavelength resonance sensor is proposed to microwave detection applications. A meta-material element—multiple split ring resonator (MSRR) is used to improve the sensitivity of the sensor. Therefore, the sensor is based on micro-strip technology and consists of a micro-strip and a MSRR. It is observed that the strongest electric field of the sensor can achieve to 105V/m. So the sensor is very sensitive to capture changes of dielectric signals. ...

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2019Source: Pharmacology Biochemistry and BehaviorAuthor(s): Morales-Mulia MarcelaAbstractAlcohol use is frequently associated with mood disorders. Similarly, individuals suffering from these disorders have a higher risk of developing alcoholism. Several reports have implicated orexin signaling in different behaviors related to alcohol consumption, whereas antagonists block these actions. However, the involvement of orexin-1-receptor (Orx1R) in ethanol-induced anxiolysis remains relatively unexplored. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether intra-accumbal inhibition...
