Faika Zanjani, Hannah Allen, Nancy Schoenberg, Catherine Martin, Richard Clayton
BACKGROUND: The majority of older adults take prescription or over-the-counter medications and about half consume alcohol regularly. Despite high risk for alcohol medication interactions (AMI), few community-level interventions exist to prevent AMI. The current study assessed the acceptability of educational materials created for use in a brief intervention to prevent AMI among older adults. METHODS: Older adults from two senior centers reviewed intervention materials (poster, patient and pharmacist brochures, and public service announcement) and participated in a pre and post-test to provide feedback and to assess changes in AMI-related awareness and intentions...

2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) is an environmental contaminant and its toxicity is mediated by the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR). Mechanisms of TCDD cardiovascular toxicity consist of oxidative stress, growth factor modulation, and ionic current alteration. It is indicated that the rodent cardiovascular system is a target for TCDD cardiomyopathy. Here, our understanding of TCDD cardiovascular toxicity is reviewed.

Amyloidogenic model peptides are invaluable for investigating assembly mechanisms in disease related amyloids and in protein folding. During aggregation, such peptides can undergo bifurcation leading to fibrils or crystals, however the mechanisms of fibril-to-crystal conversion are unclear. We navigate herein the energy landscape of amyloidogenic peptides by studying a homologous series of hexapeptides found in animal, human and disease related proteins. We observe fibril-to-crystal conversion occurring within single aggregates via untwisting of twisted ribbon fibrils possessing saddle-like curvature and cross-sectional aspect ratios approaching unity...

A 37-year-old woman underwent surgery to remove bilateral vulvar masses. The masses were firm, non-tender, and immobile. Pathologic finding was a well-delineated creamy grayish mass with a homogenous grayish solid surface and mild edema, chronic inflammatory infiltration, and focal dilation of the ducts with squamous metaplasia. The diagnosis was hyperplastic and hypertrophied Bartholin's gland. Hyperplasia is a rare etiology for an enlarged Bartholin's gland. Clinical presentation of Bartholin's gland nodular hyperplasia is rather specific, although inflammatory lesion is the most common cause of swelling of the Bartholin's gland in all age groups...

Postoperative pain control remains an important issue in the field of surgery. Assessing and managing patients with acute pain who are addicted to opioids are often challenging. It has been shown that, addicted patients are less tolerant to pain. There is limited evidence to guide the management of acute pain in these patients. Here we studied the effect of preemptive use of carbamazepine on pain behavior and serum IL-6, IL-10 levels in the addicted patients. 90 male patients (25-45 years, BMI 20-27), were divided into 3 group of 30 patients: 1- control, 2- addicted, 3- addicted patients receiving carbamazepine 400mg before surgery...
