Initial researches on neuro-functional status and evolution in chronic ethanol consumers with recent traumatic spinal cord injury.

We present a synthesis of related data on lesion mechanisms in post-traumatic myelogenous disorders, namely some of the alcohols and their actions on the nervous system, with details on the influences exerted, in such afflictions, by the chronic consumption of ethanol. The subject is not frequently approached - according to a literature review with systematic elements, which we have done before - thus constituting a niche that deserves to be further explored. The applicative component of the article highlights statistical data resulted from a retrospective study regarding the specialized casuistry from the Neuromuscular Recovery Clinic of the "Bagdasar Arseni" Emergency Clinical Hospital, following the comparative analysis of two groups of patients with recent SCI: non-consumers - the control group (n=780) - and chronic ethanol consumers - the study group (n=225) - with the addition of a prospective pilot component. Data processing has been achieved with SPSS 24. The American Spinal Injury Association Impairment Scale (AIS) mean motor scores differ significantly (tests: Mann-Whitney and t) between the control and study group in favor of the second, both at admission (p

In this study, we developed a methodology combined Paternò-Büchi reaction nanoelectrospray ionization mass spectrometry (PB-nanoESI-MS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to identify C=C locations and isomers of PUTAGs in sacha inchi oil. Benzophenone was used as the PB reagent, and the optimized solvent composition (methanol:chloroform=9:1) allowed for PUTAGs and their PB products to be detected with higher intensities. In addition, we made efforts to interpret the MS2 spectra for identification lipid species. A series of C57-PUTAGs and C59-PUTAGs were detected and identified via high-resolution PB-nanoESI-M...

Publication date: Available online 13 October 2019Source: Carbohydrate PolymersAuthor(s): Shaolei Kang, Hualin Wang, Li Xia, Minmin Chen, Linlin Li, Junfeng Cheng, Xingjiang Li, Shaotong JiangAbstractIn this work, a colorimetric film was designed for shrimp freshness monitoring by incorporating rose anthocyanins (RAs) in polyvinyl alcohol/okra mucilage polysaccharide (PVA/OMP) composite film. The presence of OMP changed the film-forming solution from Newtonian to non-Newtonian fluid. The addition of OMP and RAs decreased the crystalline of PVA due to the hydrogen bonds among RAs, OMP and PVA. An appropriate content of RAs ...

Conclusions: This case demonstrates the effectiveness of lifestyle interventions and psychospiritual support to enable dramatic clinical change without withdrawal syndrome after cessation of medication. More important, the initial failed tapering underpins the notion that a diligent meditation practice may be necessary to heal root-cause drivers of psychiatric symptoms and withdrawal syndrome. The results may serve to inform practitioners assisting patients who wish to discontinue benzodiazepine and other psychotropic medications or patients who would like to try a nonpharmaceutical approach as a first-line therapy.
