What Medicines Should Be Avoided with G6PD Deficiency?
Discussion Glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD) is an X-linked disease that has multiple mutations. Each mutation causes a different amount of the enzyme to be produced within cells and therefore not all mutations will produce disease. Glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase is an enzyme that is critical to the metabolism of all aerobic cells as it catalyzes the rate-limiting step of the pentose phosphate pathway reducing NADP to NADPH. NADPH is important for nucleic acid replication and therefore cell division. G6PD is the only source of NADPH within the cell, so deficiency makes red blood cells susceptible to he...

A book that goes beyond cliche to view the world through a psychopath's eyesThanks to the grisly antics of Hannibal Lecter and Patrick Bateman, the popular image of the psychopath is of the suave predator with a fondness for power tools and fava beans. Professor Kevin Dutton, research psychologist at Oxford, argues that not all psychopaths are monsters and that those who can keep their more antisocial impulses from bleeding into everyday life can be very successful human beings. This isn't entirely revelatory – Bret Easton Ellis didn't set American Psycho on Wall Street by chance – yet Dutton's round-up of...
