Peroxymonosulfate activation by superparamagnetic mixed-valent Cu/N-( < sub > L < /sub > -cysteine)-O-(carboxymethyl)chitosan/cobalt ferrate-rice hull hybrid nanocomposite for efficient degradation of naproxen: Synergetic adsorption-catalysis, kinetics, pathway, and relevant mechanism
Int J Biol Macromol. 2024 May 17:132486. doi: 10.1016/j.ijbiomac.2024.132486. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTNaproxen (NPX) as an emerging anthropogenic contaminant was detected in many water sources, which can pose a serious threat to the environment and human health. Peroxymonosulfate (PMS) decomposed by Cu(I) has been considered an effective activation method to produce reactive species. However, this decontamination process is restricted by the slow transformation of Cu(II)/Cu(I) by PMS. Herein, new N-(L-cysteine/triazine)-O-(carboxymethyl)-chitosan/cobalt ferrate-rice hull hybrid biocomposite was constructed to anchor ...

From scraps to purification: innovative use of food waste-derived hydrochar in eradicating pharmaceutical pollutants
This study investigated the use of hydrothermally carbonized food waste-derived hydrochar (AC-HTC) at three distinct temperatures (200, 250, and 300 °C) as an adsorbent to remove these CPs from water. Our research focused on the impact of hydrothermal carbonization temperature on hydrochar properties and the effects of chemical activation with phosphoric acid on adsorption capacity. Hydrothermal carbonization increased the hydrochar's surface area from 1.47 to 7.52 m2/g, which was further enhanced to 32.81 m2/g after activation with phosphoric acid. Batch adsorption experiments revealed that hydrochar produced at 250 °C ...

A rare case of meloxicam-induced pseudoporphyria
We report a case of meloxicam-induced pseudoporphyria in a 55-year-old woman with a past medical history of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and osteoarthritis. She presented to the clinic with tense and denuded bullae on her dorsal feet, which was diagnosed as pseudoporphyria after further workup. Upon evaluating the patient's medication history, meloxicam was identified as the most likely inciting agent. The patient's condition resolved with the discontinuation of this medication. Our findings can help dermatologists effectively diagnose and treat meloxicam-induced pseudoporphyria in patient...

An acute phase reaction from zoledronate mimicking symptoms seen in opioid withdrawal: a case report
CONCLUSION: Zoledronate, well known for causing acute phase reactions, was likely the cause of withdrawal-like symptoms. Acute phase reactions with bisphosphonates mostly occur in the first infusion, and the incidence decreases with subsequent infusions. Symptoms typically occur 24-72 h post-infusion, and last at most for 72 h. Cognitive bias led the primary team to be concerned with opioid withdrawal rather than investigating other causes for the patient's presentation. Therefore, providers should thoroughly investigate potential etiologies and rule them out accordingly to provide the best care. Health care providers shou...

Biotransformation activities of fungal strain apiotrichum sp. IB-1 to ibuprofen and naproxen
Arch Microbiol. 2024 Apr 25;206(5):232. doi: 10.1007/s00203-024-03963-z.ABSTRACTIbuprofen (IBU) and naproxen (NPX), as widely prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), are largely produced and consumed globally, leading to frequent and ubiquitous detection in various aqueous environments. Previously, the microbial transformation of them has been given a little attention, especially with the isolated fungus. A yeast-like Apiotrichum sp. IB-1 has been isolated and identified, which could simultaneously transform IBU (5 mg/L) and NPX (2.5 mg/L) with maximum efficiencies of 95.77% and 88.31%, respectively. For...

Environmental risk assessment of selected pharmaceuticals in hospital wastewater in nothern vietnam
This study investigated the occurrence of selected pharmaceuticals in influent and effluent of wastewater treatment plants of 12 hospitals in Hanoi and 3 northern cities of Vietnam during dry and rainy seasons. In addition, environmental risk of pharmaceuticals in both hospital influents and effluents were evaluated based on risk quotients (RQs). Nine selected pharmaceutical compounds including sulfamethoxazole (SMX), naproxen (NPX), diclofenac (DCF), ibuprofen (IBU), acetaminophen (ACT), carbamazepine (CBM), iopromide (IOP), atenolol (ATN), and caffeine (CAF) were frequently detected in most influent and effluent wastewat...
