Panel Denies Rehearing, Allows Ruling In Disability Insurer's Favor To Stand
CINCINNATI - The Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Jan. 9 refused to reconsider its ruling that a district court did not err in concluding that a disability claimant was not disabled from his own occupation as an anesthesiologist because the medical evidence supported the insurer's finding that the claimant could perform the duties of his own occupation with appropriate accommodations (Timothy O'Neill D.O. v. Unum Life Insurance Company of America, No. 18-1382, 6th Cir., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 817). (Source: LexisNexis® Mealey's™ Disability Insurance Legal News)

Podcast: Intramuscular and intravenous opioid pain relieving drugs in labour
The use of pain-relieving drugs during labour is common throughout the world, and an updated Cochrane Review from June 2018 looks at the use of a class of drugs called opioids. Lead author, Lesley Smith from Oxford Brookes University in the UK tells us what they found." For many women in labour, an epidural containing a local anaesthetic has become an increasingly popular choice for pain relief. However, not all women choose this and some give birth in places were an epidural is not available. One of alternatives is the use of an opioid drug, such as pethidine, diamorphine or meptazinol given either intramuscularly or...

Secreted amyloid-{beta} precursor protein functions as a GABABR1a ligand to modulate synaptic transmission
Amyloid-β precursor protein (APP) is central to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease, yet its physiological function remains unresolved. Accumulating evidence suggests that APP has a synaptic function mediated by an unidentified receptor for secreted APP (sAPP). Here we show that the sAPP extension domain directly bound the sushi 1 domain specific to the -aminobutyric acid type B receptor subunit 1a (GABABR1a). sAPP-GABABR1a binding suppressed synaptic transmission and enhanced short-term facilitation in mouse hippocampal synapses via inhibition of synaptic vesicle release. A 17–amino acid peptide corre...

I have a briefcase. I am walking purposefully, click-clack-click-clack. That is the entire dream. I dreamed of being competent. I have never felt more incompetent than when I was pregnant. I was four months or so pregnant, extremely uncomfortable, and at work when I started bleeding. When you are black woman, having a body is already complicated for workplace politics. Having a bleeding, distended body is especially egregious. I waited ...
