Alexithymia in Neurological Disease: A Review.
Conclusions: Identification of alexithymia could be relevant for prognosis and therapeutic decisions in patients with neurological disease and is certainly worthy of further study. Tools with which to measure alexithymia and delineation from affective disorders and apathy are important methodological issues for future work. PMID: 25658681 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Roman A, Palego F, Achimas-Cadariu P, Vlad C, Andries A, Tomuleasa CI, Gata VA, Pintican R, Rada MP, Feier D Abstract AimsThe present study aims to investigate the pain, anxiety and other factors that are associated with percutaneous computed tomography (CT)- and ultrasound (US)-guided biopsies of tumors.Material and MethodsThe study prospectively included 60 consecutive patients, of which 24 underwent CT-guided biopsies and 36 US-guided biopsies. The location of targeted tumors was within the thorax, abdomen, pelvis, and limbs. A questionnaire containing numerical rate scales (0-10) regarding procedural a...

Front cover:Mature neurons in the healthy central nervous system are considered to be permanently post ‐mitotic cells. In several neurodegenerative diseases, however, ectopic neuronal cell cycle events are found associated with regions of neuronal death. In the paper by Zhu et al., the authors use abnormal neuronal cell cycle activity as a screen to test natural compounds derived from marine bacter ia for their potential in preventing it and thus acting as neuroprotective agents.Image content: This image shows cerebellar Purkinje cells in one ‐month old mouse model of ataxia‐telangiectasia, a neurodegenerative diseas...
Conclusions/Importance: This study revealed that many users are not responsibly using CBD products, many believe CBD products provide health benefits that are not yet scientifically proven, and they are not knowledgeable about legal and regulatory issues. Until CBD use is more thoroughly researched and has more comprehensive regulation, public health professionals should address alternative stress and anxiety treatment methods.

Authors: Osei-Owusu J, Yang J, Del Carmen Vitery M, Tian M, Qiu Z Abstract Severe local acidosis causes tissue damage and pain, and is associated with many diseases, including cerebral and cardiac ischemia, cancer, infection, and inflammation. However, the molecular mechanisms of the cellular response to extracellular acidic environment are not fully understood. We recently identified a novel and evolutionarily conserved membrane protein, PAC (also known as PACC1 or TMEM206), encoding the proton-activated chloride (Cl-) channel, whose activity is widely observed in human cell lines. We demonstrated that genetic del...
