The Importance of DS-14 and HADS Questionnaires in Quantifying Psychological Stress in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

Conclusions: The results of this study demonstrated that more than a half of patients with diabetes had anxiety and/or depression and one third had Type D personality, sustaining that monitoring of emotional state and depression should be included in the therapeutic plan of these patients. New treatment strategies are needed to improve the well-being of diabetic patients with psychological comorbidities. PMID: 31491990 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 16 October 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators A: PhysicalAuthor(s): Ssu-Han Chen, Aron Michael, Chee Yee KwokAbstractThis paper presents the fabrication and characterization of a high performance piezoelectrically driven micro-lens actuator. The fabrication method involves controlling the residual stresses in the structure to predefine the initial deflection of the actuator, resulting in a larger actuation stroke. The residual stress control exploits the unique properties of ultra-high vacuum e-beam evaporated film to form thick tensile polysilicon as the actuator structural layer. This is...

BrewsterAbstractBackgroundStatus epilepticus (SE) is a prolonged and continuous seizure that lasts for at least 5 minutes. An episode of SE in a healthy system can lead to the development of spontaneous seizures and cognitive deficits which may be accompanied by hippocampal injury and microgliosis. Although the direct mechanisms underlying the SE-induced pathophysiology remain unknown, a candidate mechanism is hyperactivation of the classical complem...

Methylglyoxal (MGO), a highly reactive metabolite of hyperglycemia, serves as a major precursor of advanced glycation end products that play key roles in diabetic complications. Ginsenoside Rb1 (abbreviated as Rb1) has received extensive attention due to its potential therapeuti...

We report the results from a study evaluating a commercially available artificial pelleted diet for bass and live feed (fathead minnows). Following a six-month diet-acclimation period, age-0 smallmouth bass were assessed using morphometric measures, histologic and immune-function end points using conventional methods, miniaturized cell isolation and assay methods as well as imaging flow cytometry. Fish on the two diets did not significantly differ in length, weight, or condition factor, indicating that growth was similar in the two groups. Histologic examination revealed relatively higher levels of macrophage aggregates an...

AbdelrahmanABSTRACTNewly established green TLC-densitometric and RP-HPLC methods were developed and validated for simultaneous determination of quetiapine (QUT) (an antipsychotic drug) and the co-administrated drug, paroxetine (PAR) (an antidepressant drug). Both drugs are widely prescribed for treatment of bipolar depression. The proposed TLC-densitometric method was based on separation of the studied components and the internal standard (vincamine (VINC)) ...

CONCLUSION: Patients' qualitative feedback highlighted the potential feasibility and adaptability of the program for this population. The results of this preliminary study show promising avenues for research in the field of cancer patients' adaptive coping enhancement as well as reduce anxiety and depression symptoms. This type of workshop can be considered as complementary to individual psychotherapies as they may tap into different mechanisms that help foster psychological flexibility as the group format enhances decentering processes. Further research avenues are proposed in order to assess the efficacy of such interven...
