Preventing Overuse Hand, Arm, and Shoulder Injuries in EMS
Introduction An EMS provider’s job involves frequent lifting and moving of patients, stretchers, and many other objects. The provider is required to help patients in the act of standing, moving, and transferring on a daily basis. Nearly every provider has experienced having to strain to lift a bariatric patient or overexerting to raise a stretcher when his or her partner is helping someone else. Lifting puts a lot of stress on an EMS provider’s body. Orthopedic specialists often see EMS workers for lifting-related injuries. In 2016, a CDC study found that over 20,000 EMS workers were seen in emergency departmen...

Noncompetitive inhibitors of TNFR1 probe conformational activation states
Tumor necrosis factor receptor 1 (TNFR1) is a central mediator of the inflammatory pathway and is associated with several autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. A revision to the canonical model of TNFR1 activation suggests that activation involves conformational rearrangements of preassembled receptor dimers. Here, we identified small-molecule allosteric inhibitors of TNFR1 activation and probed receptor dimerization and function. Specifically, we used a fluorescence lifetime–based high-throughput screen and biochemical, biophysical, and cellular assays to identify small molecules that noncompetitively in...
