INTRODUCTION: Macrophage activation syndrome (MAS) is a life-threatening hyperinflammatory state mediated by uncontrolled cytokine storm and haemophagocytosis. Although rarely reported, MAS might occur in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), notably as an inaugural manifestation. Glucocorticoids (GCs) are the cornerstone of SLE therapy. However, in some cases high doses of GCs are required to achieve remission (i.e. glucocorticoid-resistance), leading to significant side effects. CASE REPORT: A 28-year-old Romani male was admitted to our hospital for polyarthralgia, polyserositis and fatigability...

The history of antipsychotics began with the discovery of chlorpromazine in the 1950s. Since then this group of medications has become one of the most important element of the armamentarium of psychopharmacology. While initially these pharmacons were used in the treatment of psychotic states (including psychotic mania) in the last approximately 10-15 years new indications - such as treatment of depressive, manic and mixed states and also mood-stabilization in bipolar disorder and also the treatment of major depressive disorder - for several second-generation antipsychotic (SGA) agents have been introduced...

A diverse library of 1-phenyl-pyrazole-4-carboxylic acid derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their inhibitory potency against xanthine oxidoreductase (XOR) in vitro and vivo, and the structure-activity relationship (SAR) analyses were also presented. Approximately half of the target compounds exhibited the inhibitory potency for XOR at the nanomolar level. Compounds 16c, 16d, and 16f emerged as the most potent xanthine oxidoreductase inhibitors with IC50 values of 5.7, 5.7 and 4.2 nM, respectively, in comparison to febuxostat (IC50 of 5...

Ionically conducting plastic crystals (PCs) are possible candidates for solid-state electrolytes in energy-storage devices. Interestingly, the admixture of larger molecules to the most prominent molecular PC electrolyte, succinonitrile, was shown to drastically enhance its ionic conductivity. Therefore, binary mixtures seem to be a promising way to tune the conductivity of such solid-state electrolytes. However, to elucidate the general mechanisms of ionic charge transport in plastic crystals and the influence of mixing, a much broader database is needed...

A tellurate compound with Co(II)/Co(III) mixed valence states and lithium ions within orthogonally oriented channels was realized in Li3Co1.06(1)TeO6. The single-crystal structure determination revealed two independent and interpenetrating Li/O and (Co,Te)/O substructures with octahedral oxygen coordination of the metal atoms. In contrast to other mixed oxides, a honeycomb-like ordering of CoO6 and TeO6 octahedra was not observed. Li3Co1.06(1)TeO6 crystallizes orthorhombically with the following unit cell parameters and refinement results: Fddd, a = 588...

The synthesis and ligand-centered redox chemistry of palladium complexes bearing two potentially bidentate verdazyl ligands is explored. Reaction of 1,5-diisopropyl-3-pyridin-2-yl-6-oxoverdazyl radical 1 with Pd(NCMe)4·2BF4 gives a complex containing two coordinated verdazyl radicals. The structure of this complex consists of one verdazyl bound to Pd in a bidentate mode and the second verdazyl bound in a monodentate fashion through the pyridine substituent; the fourth coordination site is occupied by a solvent molecule (acetonitrile (3) or dimethyl sulfoxide (4))...

Vivid emotional mental imagery has been identified across a range of mental disorders. In bipolar spectrum disorders - psychopathologies characterized by mood swings that alternate between depression and mania, and include irritability and mixed affect states - mental imagery has been proposed to drive instability in both 'positive' and 'negative' mood. That is, mental imagery can act as an "emotional amplifier". The current experimental study tested this hypothesis and investigated imagery characteristics associated with mood amplification using a spectrum approach to psychopathology...

The first non-centrosymmetric mixed-alkali-metal borophosphates, Na4MB2P3O13 (M = Rb 1, Cs 2), were obtained using a low-temperature flux method. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies of 1 and 2 reveal that the two compounds are isostructural, both crystallizing in the orthorhombic space group Pna21; their structures consist of novel 1D borophosphate chains constructed from B2P3O14 fundamental building units, assembled into a 3D framework by alkali metal cations. Second-harmonic generation (SHG) measurements show that 1 and 2 are type-I phase-matchable, with SHG responses ca...

A new unsymmetrical ditopic ligand H2L was used to synthesize two [2 × 2] grid type tetranuclear trivalent and mixed-valent Fe, FeFe complexes, respectively. Both complexes [Fe(L')4] (1) and [FeFe(L)4](BF4)2·2CH3CN (2) have been X-ray structurally characterized. The magnetic properties of complexes 1 and 2 show dominant antiferromagnetic coupling. Mössbauer studies were carried out to confirm the electronic states of the iron centres. The structural properties of the two complexes are diverse though they have been synthesized from the same ligand but under different conditions...
