Are non-injecting opioid users at risk of transition to injecting drug use? A multi-site study from India.
Authors: Ambekar A, Mishra A, Parmar A, Kumar R, Kumar M, Rao R, Agrawal A Abstract BACKGROUND: Most people who inject drugs (PWID) start their drug use careers by using non-injecting opioid drugs. A variety of interconnected factors may influence the risk of transition from non-injecting to injecting drug use (IDU). However, such factors have not been studied well in India. As almost all non-injecting opioid users (NIOU) are at potential risk of switching to IDU in future, it is important to understand the phenomenon of transition. METHOD: In this multi-site, cross-sectional observational study, we compared in...

The psychological wellbeing of the Lebanese society lies between incremental suicide rates and financial stress.
Authors: Bou Khalil R Abstract Suicide rates have been suspected to increase in Lebanon during the last couple of years. While these rates might be increasing due to an increase in the probability of declaring suicide, it seems important to study why suicide, as a phenomenon, might be possibly increasing in the Lebanese society. One of the most important reasons behind this rise in suicide rates could be related to the economical crisis that has been striking the country for more than two years.

A clinical TRIAD for early suspicion of autoimmune encephalitis as a possibility in patients presenting with progressive cognitive decline.
Authors: Chandra SR, Ray S, Isaac T, R Pai A, Krishnareddy H, Dhar D, Philip M Abstract Patients with progressive cognitive decline mostly suffer from degenerative disease and carry a relatively poor prognosis. But small groups among these patients have a potentially treatable cause of illness and therefore every patient with dementia needs to be considered treatable unless proved otherwise. This group can be identified only by high degree of suspicion based on clinical clues. We have evaluated the validity of some simple clinical clues which we noticed in our patients with immune mediated dementias. The Panic scor...

Functional characterization of two variants in the 3'-untranslated region (UTR) of transcription factor 4 gene and their association with schizophrenia in sib-pairs from multiplex families.
In this study, we sequenced the 3'UTR of TCF4 in 13 multiplex schizophrenia families and 14 control families. We found two functional variants carried by three unrelated patients. We determined that the C allele of rs1272363 and the TC insert of rs373174214 might suppress post- transcriptional expression. Secondly, we cloned the region that flanked these two variants into a dual luciferase reporter system and compared the luciferase activities between the pmirGLO-TCF4 (control), pmirGLO-TCF4-rs373174214 and pmirGLO-TCF4-rs1273263.
