Subtle modifications to oxytocin produce ligands that retain potency and improved selectivity across species
In conclusion, [Se-Se]-oxytocin-OH is a novel probe for validating OTR as a therapeutic target in various biological systems and is a promising new lead for therapeutic development. Our medicinal chemistry approach may also be applicable to other peptidergic signaling systems with similar selectivity issues. (Source: Signal Transduction Knowledge Environment)

How Deep Learning Techniques Can Predict Epilepsy Seizures
Australian researchers have developed a proof-of-concept of a wearable device that can predict the onset of seizures in patients with epilepsy. The retrospective study of data gathered from 10 patients simulated real-life scenarios by deploying them on a brain-inspired chip, according to  Stefan Harrer, PhD, manager of brain-inspired computing research for IBM Research Australia. As part of that simulation, the researchers used deep learning, creating algorithms that would learn which brain signals unique to an individual would preempt seizures. “People with uncontrolled epilepsy often live with uncertainty abo...

How Do You Perform the Adams Forward Bend Test?
Discussion Scoliosis is a lateral and rotational curvature of the spine from a plumb line hanging from C7 to the floor. Idiopathic scoliosis is the most common form. A review of scoliosis and its differential diagnosis can be found here. Depending on the age, 2-4% of adolescents have a positive Adams Forward Bend Test when assessed and ~2% may have idiopathic scoliosis of> 10 degrees. Curve progression relates to the magnitude of the curve and the patient’s age. Thus increased risk of progression occurs in patients with higher curvature magnitude at diagnosis, females (earlier start of puberty and therefore poss...

Book Review: Another Kind of Madness
“There are times that I wish I had cancer.” It is difficult to imagine that anyone would wish for cancer. But through the eyes of someone diagnosed with a mental illness, this statement may make more sense. The cultural perception that cancer is a “real” illness and mental health challenges are weaknesses or character flaws is just one example of why efforts to reduce stigma are needed. In Another Kind of Madness, Stephen Hinshaw shares his story of growing up with the unexplained absences of his father. It wasn’t until his father shared information about his bipolar diagnosis while Hinshaw wa...

The Case for Real-World Evidence (RWE) in Medical Device Development
Medical Devices are used in the real world every day, so shouldn’t they be tested in the real world? You would think so. But the FDA hasn’t necessarily been of that mindset — until now. Per FDA regulations, testing has to be conducted under supervised clinical trials, which have pre-designed protocols. When most think of clinical studies, they think of the structured, randomized clinical studies conducted for drug products; however clinical studies are also required for some high risk medical device applications. When determining if real-world evidence is relevant, one should consider that medical devices...
