Bed Aids for Nighttime Heartburn Sufferers

Nearly 8 in 10 heartburn sufferers will experience heartburn at night. And when people suffer from nighttime heartburn, it is recommended that they elevate their heads and shoulders while sleeping. Why does this help? Elevating your head while sleeping helps keep stomach contents where they belong--in your stomach. The wedges and bed modifications listed here can help with keeping you at a slant while sleeping.

Authors: Panicker RC, Chattopadhaya S, Coyne AG, Srinivasan R Abstract Deregulation of protein kinase activity has been linked to many diseases ranging from cancer to AIDS and neurodegenerative diseases. Not surprisingly, drugging the human kinome - the complete set of kinases encoded by the human genome - has been one of the major drug discovery pipelines. Majority of the approved clinical kinase inhibitors target the ATP binding site of kinases. However, the remarkable sequence and structural similarity of ATP binding pockets of kinases make selective inhibition of kinases a daunting task. To circumvent these iss...

Consuming a high-fat diet (HFD) is a risk factor for obesity and diabetes; both of these diseases are also associated with systemic inflammation, similar to HIV infection. A HFD induces intestinal dysbiosis and impairs liver function and coagulation, with a potential negative impact on HIV/SIV pathogenesis. We administered a HFD rich in saturated fats and cholesterol to nonpathogenic (African green monkeys) and pathogenic (pigtailed macaques) SIV hosts. The HFD had a negative impact on SIV disease progression in both species. Thus, increased cell-associated SIV DNA and RNA occurred in the HFD-receiving nonhuman primates, i...

Abstract Immunoblotting is a ubiquitous immunological technique that aids in detecting and quantifying proteins (including those of lower abundance) and their posttranslational modifications such as phosphorylation, acetylation, ubiquitylation, and sumoylation. The technique involves electrophoretically separating proteins on an SDS-PAGE gel, transferring them onto a PVDF (or nitrocellulose) membrane and probing with specific antibodies. Here we describe an immunoblotting technique for detecting cellular phosphohistidine, a labile posttranslational modification, by optimizing experimental conditions such that the ...

In this study, 2 mol% Co(NO3)2•6H2O was used as the sintering aid, GDC interlayers with 2 mol% Co(NO3)2•6H2O (Co-GDC) were sintered at 1150 °C, 1200 °C, 1250 °C and 1350 °C, respectively. The Co-GDC interlayer sintered at 1150 °C was porous, but only closed pores existed when the Co-GDC interlayers were sintering above 1250 °C. The initial ohmic resistances of the cells with Co-GDC interlayers sintered at 1150 °C, 1250 °C and 1350 °C were 0.259, 0.266 and 0.299 Ω cm2. After the cells running for 100 h, the ohmic resistances were 0.289, 0.262 an...
