Comparison of two techniques for a comprehensive gut histopathological analysis: Swiss Roll versus Intestine Strips.
In conclusion, Swiss Rolls might be desirable for a wider assessment of the intestine, as it allows large segments to be analyzed at once, while Strips are better suited when detailed evaluation of each villus is intended. PMID: 31465765 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Abstract Infection is the predominant cause of mortality in early life, and immunization is the most promising biomedical intervention to reduce this burden. However, very young infants fail to respond optimally to most vaccines currently in use, especially neonates. In 2005, Stanley Plotkin proposed that new delivery systems would spur a new revolution in pediatric vaccinology, just as attenuation, inactivation, cell culture of viruses, genetic engineering, and adjuvantation had done in preceding decades. Recent advances in the field of immunoengineering, which is evolving alongside vaccinology, have begun to inc...

This study analyzed responses of 460 participants who answered all items on the questionnaire. Most respondents agreed or strongly agreed that they want to share information with pharmacists. All items had significant gap between patient expectation and perception (p
Less than one third of teens and young adults who overdose on opioids receive addiction treatment afterward, and the few who do get help receive counseling instead of medication to combat substance misuse, a U.S. study suggests.Reuters Health Information
Conclusion: Treatment with Ang- (1-7) accelerates the resolution of inflammation and the return of pulmonary homeostasis and Mas receptor blockade slow down this process in mice submitted to the experimental model of asthma.
Conclusion: These results suggest that treatment with Ang-(1-7) interferes in the center of the pathogenesis of asthma, that is, the Th2-type immune response and IgE synthesis.
Conclusion: Therapeutic treatment with Ang-(1-7) at the peak of inflammation decreased eosinophil and neutrophil in a model of asthma induced by OVA and exacerbated by LPS.Support: FAPEMIG/FELUMA

An Oklahoma judge ordered Johnson &Johnson to pay $572 million for its role in the opioid crisis in a historic ruling on Monday, marking the first time an opioid manufacturer has been deemed responsible in court and made to pay damages. It could have implications for the slew of lawsuits filed against opioid manufacturers and distributors throughout the country. A much bigger federal case before an Ohio judge involves at least 1,600 consolidated lawsuits from cities and counties from across the country, including hard-hit regions like Portsmouth, Ohio and Huntington, W.Va. The nationwide suit was filed in Ohio because ...
This study demonstrates that, despite current monitoring approaches, contaminated and adulterated products are still reaching the consumer. We suggest that a better solution is stronger pre-market evaluation, using techniques such as that outlined in this study.
