KilyanekAbstract20-Membered macrocyclic rings (Lbenz and Limid) containing two amine moieties and two N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) moieties coordinate in a κ2 coordination mode to Ni(II) through the NHC moieties. Complexes 3a and 3b were synthesized by generating free carbenes in situ from bis-benzimidazolium bromide salts and subsequent addition of one equivalent of [Ni(DME)X2] (X = Cl, Br) at 25 °C. Free carbenes of 20-membered macrocyclic ligands Lbenz and Limid can be generated in situ in THF-d8 and characterized by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. 3b can also be synthesized by treatment of silver(I)-bis(NHC) complex 2a with one equivalent of [NiBr2(DME)] in refluxing methylene chloride for 20 h affording yields of up to70%. Complexes 3a and 3b were characterized by X-ray diffraction. [NiI2(Lbenz)] 5c was prepared by halogen exchange of 3a or 3b with NaI at 25 °C. Ni complexes of Limid can be prepared and characterized in situ but cannot be isolated cleanly from the reaction mixtures. The cis and trans isomers of [NiCl2(Limid)] (4a and 4b) and the bromide derivative 4c were characterized by X-ray crystallography by judicious selection of individual, high-quality crystals obtained from crude reaction mixtures.Graphical abstractA series of Ni complexes were synthesized supported by 20 membered macrocyclic rings containing two ...
ConclusionsPA activates PXR signalling and suppresses NF-κB signalling, consequently causing ameliorating inflammation. Results highlight the importance of PXR–NF-κB crosstalk in colitis and suggest a novel therapeutic reagent.Graphical abstract
ConclusionsThis study suggests that PLS exhibits anti-inflammatory action against intestinal damage by reducing inflammatory cell infiltration, oxidative stress, pro-inflammatory action of cytokines, and COX-2 expression in the inflamed colon. PLS shows therapeutic potential against inflammatory disorders like UC.Graphical abstract
ConclusionsThe findings indicate that combined traditional Thai herbal formulations can be used to successfully treat chronic eczema and could be considered as an alternative treatment for refractory chronic eczema.
ConclusionsFrailty assessment may be good value for money. However, limited availability of geriatric consultation services, may hinder implementation. Thus, the estimated benefits of frailty screening may not be achievable in practice.
We report the case of a 17-year-old patient with recurrent hemorrhagic pericardial effusion, who was diagnosed with primary pericardial fibrosarcoma. However, multiple radiological examinations, including CT and [18F] FDG/PET-CT, suggested the presence of fluid and no sign of tumor. Actually, when a patient presents with recurrent hemorrhagic pericardial effusions, pericardial tumors must be taken into account as part of the differential diagnosis.
We present two young patients (

We describe a contiguous gene deletion of the ATM locus in a multi-generation family of Italian descent with a strong family history of pancreatic cancer. A deletion of one copy of the entire ATM gene was identified by routine panel testing and further characterized by chromosomal microarray analysis. An 11q22.3 microdeletion of approximately 960kb was identified that is predicted to result in loss of 10 genes including ATM. The deletion was identified in two additional family members including a presymptomatic daughter and an affected sibling. A normal disomic complement of the 11q22.3 region was detected in a third famil...
Conclusions: The DC-TAV program is an ambitious, civilian-military, nationwide and long-term program, based on a harmonised standard of care and including multidimensional training. Further studies are required to assess its efficacy.

In elderly patients, this trial aimed to assess the impact of the addition of remifentanil during RSI on the occurrence of: tachycardia (primary outcome), hypertension (due to intubation) nor hypotension (rem...
