Vitamin C: historical perspectives and heart failure
AbstractVitamin C (Vit C) is an ideal antioxidant as it is easily available, water soluble, very potent, least toxic, regenerates other antioxidants particularly Vit E, and acts as a cofactor for different enzymes. It has received much attention due to its ability in limiting reactive oxygen species, oxidative stress, and nitrosative stress, as well as it helps to maintain some of the normal metabolic functions of the cell. However, over 140 clinical trials using Vit C in different pathological conditions such as myocardial infarction, gastritis, diabetes, hypertension, stroke, and cancer have yielded inconsistent results....

Randomized Trial Evaluation of Benefits and Risks of Menopausal Hormone Therapy Among Women Aged 50-59.
Abstract The health benefits and risks of menopausal hormone therapy among women aged 50-59 years are examined in the Women's Health Initiative randomized, placebo-controlled trials using long-term follow-up data and a parsimonious statistical model that leverages data from older participants to increase precision. These trials enrolled 27,347 healthy post-menopausal women aged 50-79 at 40 U.S. clinical centers during 1993-1998, including 10,739 post-hysterectomy participants in a trial of conjugated equine estrogens, and 16,608 participants with uterus in the trial of these estrogens plus medroxyprogesterone acet...

Clinacanthus nutans Mitigates Neuronal Death and Reduces Ischemic Brain Injury: Role of NF- κB-driven IL-1β Transcription
AbstractNeuroinflammation has been shown to exacerbate ischemic brain injury, and is considered as a prime target for the development of stroke therapies.Clinacanthus nutans Lindau (C. nutans) is widely used in traditional medicine for treating insect bites, viral infection and cancer, due largely to its anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. Recently, we reported that an ethanol extract from the leaf ofC. nutans could protect the brain against ischemia-triggered neuronal death and infarction. In order to further understand the molecular mechanism(s) for its beneficial effects, two experimental paradigms, namely,...

Causal inference and evidence-based recommendations in occupational health and safety research
In this issue of the Journal, a group of distinguished Nordic researchers, led by Anne Helene Garde and including four of our Associated Editors, present a discussion paper that originated from a workshop and provides detailed recommendations on night shift work (1). The recommendations are very clear: to protect workers ’ health, night shift schedules should have: (i) ≤3 consecutive night shifts; (ii) shift intervals of ≥11 hours; and (iii) ≤9 hours shift duration. For pregnant women, night work should be limited to one shift per week. The authors acknowledge that under circumstances allowing better possibi lities...

The anticoagulation dilemma and future treatment avenues in patients with breast cancer and atrial fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia, with a substantial rise in global incidence and prevalence. Ischemic stroke is a frequent complication of AF, since AF perfectly fulfills Virchow's triad of blood stasis, vascular damage and hypercoagulation, making oral anticoagulation (OAC) obligatory for stroke prevention. Direct oral anticoagulants (DOAC), such as dabigatran, which inhibits thrombin, and apixaban, edoxaban and rivaroxaban, which block the activated coagulation factor X (FXa), have some advantages and are largely replacing coumarin-based OAC.

An Agathokakological tale of ∆9 -THC: Exploration of Possible Biological Targets.
Abstract ∆ 9 -Tetrahydrocannabinol (∆9 -THC), the active phytocannabinoid in cannabis, is virtually an adjunct to the endogenous endocannabinoid signaling system. By interacting with G-protein-coupled receptors CB1 and CB2, ∆9 -THC affects peripheral and central circulation by lowering sympathetic activity, altering gene expression, cell proliferation, and differentiation, decreasing leukocyte migration, modulating neurotransmitter release thereby modulating cardiovascular functioning, tumorigenesis, immune responses, behavioral and locomotory activities respectively. ∆ 9 -THC is effective in suppressing c...

Monoclonal antibody as an emerging therapy for acute ischemic stroke.
Authors: Woods D, Jiang Q, Chu XP Abstract Acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is the 5th leading cause of death and the leading cause of neurological disability in the United States. The oxygen and glucose deprivation associated with AIS not only leads to neuronal cell death, but also increases the inflammatory response, therefore decreasing the functional outcome of the brain. The only pharmacological intervention approved by the US Federal Food and Drug Administration for treatment of AIS is tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA), however, such treatment can only be given within 4.5 hours of the onset of stroke-like sympto...

Perlecan, a Modular Instructive Proteoglycan with Diverse Functional Properties.
This study reviewed some new aspects of the modular proteoglycan perlecan, a colossal proteoglycan with a 467 kDa core protein and five distinct functional domains. Perlecan is a heparan sulphate proteoglycan that transiently displays native CS sulphation motifs 4-C-3 and 7-D-4 during tissue morphogenesis these are expressed by progenitor cell populations during tissue development. Perlecan is susceptible to fragmentation by proteases during tissue development and in pathological tissues particularly in domains IV and V. The fragmentation pattern of domain IV has been suggested as a means of grading prostate cancer. Doma...

Recent advances in fluorescent probes for extracellular pH detection and imaging.
Abstract Extracellular pH plays vital roles in physiological and pathological processes including tumor metastasis and chemotherapy resistance. Abnormal extracellular pH is known to be associated with various pathological states, such as those in tumors, ischemic stroke, infection, and inflammation. Specifically, dysregulated pH is regarded as a hallmark of cancer because enhanced glycolysis and poor perfusion in most solid malignant tumors create an acidic extracellular environment, which enhances tumor growth, invasion, and metastasis. Close connection between the cell functions with extracellular pH means that ...

Applying Ethical Principles When Discussing Alcohol Use During Pregnancy
AbstractOver the past 2 decades, more women in the United States are engaging in excessive alcohol use, including women of reproductive age. Consuming alcohol in amounts greater than recommended limits is associated with an increased risk for adverse health effects, such as breast cancer, hypertension stroke, spontaneous abortion, and infertility. Any amount of alcohol use during pregnancy can result in a fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. No safe time, safe amount, or safe type of alcohol to consume during pregnancy has been identified.
