Clinical trial uses nicotine patches to treat chronic lung disease
(MediaSource) Nicotine patches were created to help smokers quit, but researchers are conducting a study to see if they can also help patients who suffer from a chronic lung disease. Sarcoidosis is a growth of inflammatory cells, most likely triggered by inhaling pesticides or other toxic materials. If the condition doesn't go away on its own, it can cause severe lung damage and even death. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Why Black Women Should Care About Congress Taking Away Health Care
By Erica Hilton In 2013, I woke up one day and was unable to open my left eye. Daylight tortured my eye. Bright lights were impossible. This was a painful interruption in the excitement and promise of my life. I had recently earned my master’s degree and started my “dream job” as an online activism manager. Here I was in the middle of this new journey, and I couldn’t keep one eye open. I made an emergency appointment with an ophthalmologist who then sent me to see a specialist. The inflammation in my eye remained for weeks. Eventually it cleared up only to reoccur again a few weeks later. Since 2013...

What Causes Uveitis?
Discussion Inflammation of the middle layer of the eye, or uvea, is termed uveitis. Uveitis can be divided into anterior, intermediate or posterior uveitis by involving the anterior (iris and ciliary body), intermediate (vitreous) or posterior (choroid and usually retina) compartments. Panuveitis involves all 3 compartments. Duration can also be used to classify uveitis. Acute is 6 weeks and> 3 months is chronic persistent uveitis. Episodic periods of inactivity and reactivity that last more than 3 months are called recurrent uveitis. A third way to characterize uveitis is if it is granulomatous or not. Uveitis increase...

Metabolic sensor causes granulomas to form
Granulomas are tissue nodules of immune cells that occur in diseases such as tuberculosis and sarcoidosis and can damage many organs. For the first time, a team of researchers has identified what causes them to form. It is the chronic activation of the metabolic sensor mTOR (mammalian Target Of Rapamycin) that is responsible for the formation of granulomas. The scientists also discovered that, in sarcoidosis (in which granulomas cause damage to the lungs), this mechanism leads to a course that is chronic and difficult to treat. Since mTOR inhibitors belong to a group of drugs already licensed for clinical use, these findin...

Quantification of 1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D2 and D3 in Serum Using Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry
We present here an effective and accurate method for measuring 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D2 by high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) after immunoaffinity extraction. The MS/MS is operated in multiple reaction mode with positive electrospray. Quantification is based on peak area ratios of the analytes to respective deuterated internal standards. This method offered a linear range from 4.0 to 160.0 pg/mL with analytical recovery of 89.9–115.5 % for both 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D2.
