Internalized stigma is the adoption of negative attitudes and stereotypes of the society regarding a person's illness. It causes decreased self-esteem and life-satisfaction, increased depression and suicidality, and difficulty in coping with the illness. The primary aim of this study was to investigate the internalized stigma state of psoriatic patients and to identify the factors influencing internalized stigma. The secondary aim was to identify the correlation of internalized stigma with quality of life and perceived health status...

Identification of various factors involved in adverse drug reactions in target proteins to develop therapeutic drugs with minimal/no side effect is very important. In this context, we have performed a comparative evolutionary rate analyses between the genes exhibiting drug side-effect(s) (SET) and genes showing no side effect (NSET) with an aim to increase the prediction accuracy of SET/NSET proteins using evolutionary rate determinants. We found that SET proteins are more conserved than the NSET proteins. The rates of evolution between SET and NSET protein primarily depend upon their noncomplex (protein complex association number = 0) forming nature, phylogenetic age, multifunctionality, membrane localization, and transmembrane helix content irrespective of their essentiality, total druggability (total number of drugs/target), m-RNA expression level, and tissue expression breadth...

Synthesis and characterization of nano-structured porous granules, with fairly defined morphology and porosity, is crucial because such granules are widely utilized for various technological applications. However, an easy, one-step, economic synthesis protocol for large scale production is extremely desirable. In the present work, we have reported the synthesis and characterization of the nano-structured micro-granules using aerosol drying of bi-colloidal suspension of nano-silica and milk. Removal of soft organic component from the granules results in formation of meso and macro pores with moderate specific surface area...

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common leukemia in Western countries. Cytogenetic lesions such as del13q14, del11q22.3, and del17p13 are identified in 50-60% of patients. Activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID) plays a central role in somatic hyper mutation (SHM) and class switch recombination (CSR) and functions on Ig genes, but also target non-Ig genes, and over-expression of AID can lead to point mutations or translocations in non-Ig genes such as IgH/Myc translocation. Dicer and Drosha, which have a role in activation process of miRNA, also act in a double-strand DNA break (DSB) repair mechanism...

BACKGROUND: Effective treatment options for patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) or Philadelphia-positive (Ph+) acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) who have the threonine to isoleucine mutation at codon 315 (T315I) are few. The objective of this study was to compare overall survival (OS) between patients with CML and those with Ph+ ALL who received treatment with ponatinib versus allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT). METHODS: A post hoc, retrospective, indirect comparison of OS among patients who received single-agent ponatinib in the Ponatinib Ph+ ALL and CML Evaluation (PACE) trial with those who underwent allo-SCT as reported to the European Bone Marrow Transplant registry, stratified by CML disease phase and Ph+ ALL, was conducted...

X-linked immune-deficient (Xid) mice, carrying a mutation in Bruton's tyrosine kinase (Btk), have multiple B cell lineage differentiation defects. We now show that, while Xid mice showed only mild reduction in the frequency of the late transitional (T2) stage of peripheral B cells, the defect became severe when the Xid genotype was combined with either a CD40-null, a TCRbeta-null or an MHC class II (MHCII)-null genotype. Purified Xid T1 and T2 B cells survived poorly in vitro compared to wild-type (WT) cells...

Chemical probes are required for preclinical target validation to interrogate novel biological targets and pathways. Selective inhibitors of the CREB Binding Protein (CREBBP)/EP300 bromodomains are required to facilitate the elucidation of biology associated with these important epigenetic targets. Medicinal chemistry optimization, that paid particular attention to physiochemical properties, delivered chemical probes with desirable potency, selectivity and permeability attributes. An important feature of the optimization process was the successful application of rational structure-based drug design to address bromodomain selectivity issues (particularly against the structurally related BRD4 protein)...

BACKGROUND: Patients with blood disorders colonized with antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARB) are prone to systemic infections that are difficult to treat. Reintroduction of commensal bacteria in a murine model of enterococcal colonization of the gut can lead to eradication of enterococci. We hypothesized that fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) could be used to eradicate ARB in humans. METHODS: Participants colonized with ARB were treated with intraduodenal FMT according to a prospective protocol (NCT02461199)...

Geraniol is a monoterpenoid alcohol that has a hepatoprotective effect. We investigated the regenerative effects of geraniol in rats after a 70% partial hepatectomy (PH). Using Wistar albino rats, nine groups were created: Group I was the control group, while the remaining groups received a single intraperitoneal dose of saline, Silymarin, or geraniol after PH. A 70% PH was performed on all groups except for groups II and III. Blood serum samples were obtained for alanine amino transferase (ALT) analysis. Then liver tissues were harvested for histological and real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analyses...

The molecular mechanisms mediating mercury‑induced neurotoxicity are not yet completely understood. Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate whether the severity of MeHg‑ and HgCl2‑mediated cytotoxicity to SH‑SY5Y human dopaminergic neurons can be attenuated by regulating glutamate‑mediated signal‑transmission through caffeine and interferon‑γ (IFN‑γ). The SH‑SY5Y cells were exposed to 1, 2 and 5 µM of either MeHgCl2 or HgCl2 in the presence or absence of L‑glutamine. To examine the effect of adenosine receptor antagonist, the cells were treated with 10 and 20 µM caffeine...

Pneumocephalus is a complication of trauma to the chest and many iatrogenic interventions. It may arise due to systemic air embolism or retrograde cerebral venous air embolism which is an extremely rare complication. We report a 26-years-old female patient who presented to the Emergency Department suffering of multiple stab wounds. She was in a state of shock and after first aid and evaluation she was operated successfully. In the early postoperative period generalized tonic clonic convulsions were observed following cardiopulmonary resuscitation due to sudden cardiovascular collapse...

The Zika virus infections have reached epidemic proportions in the Latin American countries causing severe birth defects and neurological disorders. While several organizations have begun research into design of prophylactic vaccines and therapeutic drugs, computer assisted methods with adequate data resources can be expected to assist in these measures to reduce lead times through bioinformatics approaches. Using 60 sequences of the Zika virus envelope protein available in the GenBank database, our analysis with numerical characterization techniques and several web based bioinformatics servers identified four peptide stretches on the Zika virus envelope protein that are well conserved and surface exposed and are predicted to have reasonable epitope binding efficiency...
