Physicochemical characterization of Suvarna Bhasma, its toxicity profiling in rat and behavioural assessment in zebrafish model

ConclusionsSuvarna Bhasma contained spherical gold nanoparticles. It was nontoxic in rat model at the does tested. Suvarna Bhasma has anxiolytic effects in zebrafish behavioural model.Graphical abstract

In this study, we found that cofilin competes with tau for direct microtubule binding in vitro, in cells, and in vivo, which inhibits tau-induced microtubule assembly. Genetic reduction of cofilin mitigates tauopathy and synaptic defects in Tau-P301S mice and movement deficits in tau transgenic C. elegans. The pathogenic effects of cofilin are selectively mediated by activated cofilin, as active but not inactive cofilin selectively interacts with tubulin, destabilizes microtubules, and promotes tauopathy. These results therefore indicate that activated cofilin plays an essential intermediary role in neurotoxic signaling th...

Rationale: Cases of adrenocortical hyperfunction combined with primary aldosteronism have been reported in the literature, and the underlying mechanism involves the secretion of aldosterone and glucocorticoids by a tumor or an adenoma. However, adrenocortical hypofunction and coexisting primary aldosteronism have not been reported until now. Herein, we report a case of adrenocortical hypofunction combined with primary aldosteronism. Patient concerns: A 66-year-old Chinese woman with rheumatoid arthritis who had been diagnosed with secondary adrenal insufficiency and was taking prednisone acetate tablets for replacemen...

The prevalence of non-communicable diseases is increasing worldwide, which coincides with the persistence of infectious diseases including tuberculosis. These can synergistically affect individual and population health. Three non-communicable diseases that are relevant because of their associated morbidity, mortality and disability are type 2 diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease and rheumatoid arthritis. There is some evidence that patients with these conditions are at increased risk of acquiring latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) and of this progressing to active disease.

In conclusion, TB risk was increased in patients receiving TNF-α inhibitors, but the risk associated with rituximab therapy was relatively low. With the effectiveness of INHP shown in the prevention of biologics-associated TB, stricter implementation of INHP should be beneficial. The mortality from biologics–associated TB may be efficiently reduced through increased awareness.

Authors: Lopalco G, Rigante D, Giannini M, Galeazzi M, Lapadula G, Iannone F, Cantarini L Abstract Anakinra is a biologic response modifier that competitively antagonises the biologic effects of interleukin-1, the ancestor pleiotropic proinflammatory cytokine produced by numerous cell types, found in excess in the serum, synovial fluid and any involved tissues of patients with many inflammatory diseases. The magnitude of the risk of different infections, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) infection, associated with the large use of anakinra in many rheumatologic, metabolic or autoinflammatory disorders is s...
