Ready for a Hotter Planet?

Are we prepared for climate change and environmental decline? Not only are we not doing enough to slow climate change, scientists say, but we’re also not prepared to handle the acute and chronic mental health challenges already stirred up by climate destabilization.

AbstractMajor depressive disorder (MDD) is a leading cause of morbidity, and the fourth leading cause of disease burden worldwide. While MDD is a treatable condition for many individuals, others suffer from treatment-resistant depression (TRD). Here, we suggest the immunomodulatory compound AS101 as novel therapeutic alternative. We previously showed in animal models that AS101 reduces anxiety-like behavior and elevates levels of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that has a key role in the pathophysiology of depression. To explore the potential antidepressant properties of AS101, we used the extensive...

Functional dyspepsia (FD) is a common condition, loosely defined by some physicians as a stomach ache without a clear cause.

Those with FD often go through multiple tests like upper endoscopy, CT scan, and gastric emptying study. But despite often-severe symptoms, no clear cause (such as cancer, ulcer disease, ...
