Is there a discrete negative symptom syndrome in people who use methamphetamine? - Voce A, Burns R, Castle D, Calabria B, McKetin R.

BACKGROUND: Positive psychotic symptoms have consistently been associated with methamphetamine use but the presence of a negative symptom cluster remains unclear. We used exploratory factor analysis to examine whether a discrete negative syndrome could be ...

 Since time was invented, people have fallen into three main categories: Chronically early, on-time, or late. You don’t need mental illness to put things off until the last minute and it doesn’t take anxiety to get things done well ahead of schedule. But, there’s also no denying that living with mental illness can – and does – impact our ability to be punctual and to accomplish goals. In this episode, Gabe and Michelle discuss the difference between putting things off because we are making bad choices and putting things off because of mental health issues. Listen now!

The objective of this work was to study hydrogel dressings containing AgNPs from silver nitrate, synthesized by radiation involving the formation of silver nanoparticles with simultaneous occurrence of crosslinking and sterilization of the polymer systems. One of the hydrogels was prepared with poly(N-vinyl-2- pyrrolidone) (PVP) and the other with poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) as main studied polymers. An aqueous solution of AgNO3 was added to both polymer systems separately. The AgNPs synthesis, polymer crosslinking and dressing sterilization were achieved simultaneously by irradiating the resultant solutions with gamma-rays ...

Devanand VenkatasubbuAbstractBiocompatible polymers are being used in recent times for treating skin injuries and burn wounds. Polymers like Poly Vinyl Alcohol and Chitosan are proven to be biocompatible with least toxic to treat injuries with minimal side-effects. Curcumin, a primary component of turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and anti-microbial activity but has extremely low bioavailability. Converting Curc...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide, with a global prevalence of 25.2% [1]. NAFLD is defined by the presence of hepatic steatosis, detected either by imaging or histology, and a lack of secondary causes of hepatic fat accumulation (i.e. excessive alcohol consumption, steatogenic medication, or monogenic hereditary disorders) [2].

Abstract Biocompatible polymers are being used in recent times for treating skin injuries and burn wounds. Polymers like Poly Vinyl Alcohol and Chitosan are proven to be biocompatible with least toxic to treat injuries with minimal side-effects. Curcumin, a primary component of turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and anti-microbial activity but has extremely low bioavailability. Converting Curcumin to its nano form increased its bioavailability exponentially allowing it to play a vital role in the process of wound healing. This PVA/Chi/Cur patch increased cell proliferation as shown by the results of cell li...
