In conclusion, placebo therapies can be beneficial and ethically justifiable but it is not a sufficient reason to publish biased information. Importantly, placebo must be devoid of adverse effects, otherwise it is named pseudo-placebo. Therapeutic methods with unproven effects should be tested in high quality research shielded from the funding bias. Some issues discussed in this review are not entirely clear, and the arguments provided here can initiate a constructive discussion. PMID: 31424374 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The objective of this study was to use data from electronic health records to understand prescribing patterns associated with biologic therapies for psoriasis and utilization of concomitant non-biologic psoriasis therapies in patients on biologics. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed using OptumInSight’s electronic health records database. Patients were classified as having psoriasis if they had 2 diagnosis codes for psoriasis or 1 diagnosis for psoriasis and a subsequent prescription for a systemic psoriasis therapy or phototherapy on a separate day. Only patients with at least 1 prescription for a ...

Abstract The majority of people with depression in the United States either never seek treatment or gravitate exclusively to antidepressant medication (ADM), despite the existence of other effective treatments, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Reluctance to use psychotherapy is partly due to lack of appropriate mental health literacy and perceptions of low treatment acceptability (appropriateness for a given problem) and credibility (treatment logicalness, and whether the patient expects improvement). In the current investigation, we examined whether providing psychoeducation about CBT for depression wo...

The cashew nuts were processed by low-pressure plasma, using glow discharge plasma (80 W and 50 kHz power supply). Anacardic acids and allergens were quantified by HPLC and immunoassay, respectively. Additionally, ...

Therefore, PAH4 (sum of four different polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons; benz[a]anthracene, chrysene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, and benzo[a]pyrene) in roasted cocoa beans was determined using a modified method (combination of QuEChERS and DLLME), and quantified by HPLC-FLD. The modified method was validated and met the performanc...

In this study, a ratiometric fluorescent probe BCDs-Eu/CMP-cit was developed for the detection of tetracycline (TC) in food samples by simply mixing blue fluorescent carbon quantum dots (BCDs) and cytidine monophosphate (CMP)/europium coordination polymer nanoparticles (Eu/CMP-cit CPNs) together. In this ratiometric sensor, the emission of BCDs at 465 nm gradually decreased and that of Eu/CMP-cit CPNs at 620 nm significantly increased with the sequential addition of TC upon being excited at 380 nm, accompanyed by a remarkable fluorescence color change from bright blue to red. It was worth mentioning that both of the ...
