BACKGROUND/AIMS: Criminal-justice-involved persons are highly susceptible to opioid relapse and overdose-related deaths. In a recent randomized trial, we demonstrated the effectiveness of extended release naltrexone (XR-NTX; Vivitrol®) in preventing opioid relapse among criminal-justice-involved U.S. adults with a history of opioid use disorder. The cost of XR-NTX may be a significant barrier to adoption. Thus, it is important to account for improved quality of life, and downstream cost-offsets...

Non-phosphorylated lipid A species confer reduced inflammatory potential for the bacteria. Knowledge on their chemical structure and presence in bacterial pathogens may contribute to the understanding of bacterial resistance and activation of the host innate immune system. In this study, we report the fragmentation pathways of negatively charged, non-phosphorylated lipid A species under low-energy collision-induced dissociation conditions of an electrospray ionization quadrupole time-of-flight instrument. Charge-promoted consecutive and competitive eliminations of the acyl chains and cross-ring cleavages of the sugar residues were observed...

BACKGROUND: There may be sex-specific cardiometabolic mechanisms early in life that affect the development of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) through mid-adulthood. Yet, there have been few studies examining whether early life-course interactions between cardiometabolic risk factors and sex are associated with incident T2DM. METHODS: We followed n = 7,725 children from the Bogalusa Heart Study through mid-adulthood to examine whether low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C), high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C), body mass index (BMI), or systolic blood pressure (SBP) differentially impact the risk of T2DM for females versus males...

BACKGROUND: The dogma of administering sufficient intravenous fluids aggressively to avoid under-resuscitation has recently been challenged. Evidence suggests that excessive perioperative fluid administration may be associated with negative clinical outcomes in gastrointestinal surgery. This study examines the impact of fluid administration on perioperative outcomes in patients undergoing pancreatoduodenectomy (PD). METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 202 patients undergoing PD between January 2004 and August 2015 was performed...

AIMS: The therapeutic efficacy of daclatasvir/asunaprevir was inferior in patients with NS5A-R30Q mutant HCV strains at baseline, compared with those with wild-type strains, even though the EC50 of NS5A inhibitors was lower in mutant strains than in wild-type strains. In these patients, R30Q and Y93H mutant strains, which are highly resistant to NS5A inhibitors, emerged at virologic failure. The mechanisms involved in such virologic failure were examined. METHODS: NS5A-RAVs were evaluated using direct sequencing in 88 patients with virologic failure after daclatasvir/asunaprevir therapy...

Insomnia in prison is common; however, research is limited regarding the management strategies that prison establishments employ. To address this knowledge gap, we conducted a survey to identify how insomnia is detected, diagnosed and treated in adult prisons in England and Wales. Telephone interviews with a purposive sample of health-care managers were then conducted. The survey was sent to all establishments holding adult prisoners, covering screening and assessment methods to detect insomnia; treatment options, both pharmacological and non-pharmacological; the importance of insomnia as a treatable condition; and staff training available...

INTRODUCTION: Paper spray-mass spectrometry (PS-MS) is a kind of ambient MS technique for the rapid analysis of samples. Corni fructus has been widely used in traditional Chinese compound preparations and healthy food. However, a number of counterfeits of Corni fructus, such as Crataegi fructus, Lycii fructus, and grape skin are illegally sold in crude herb markets. Therefore, the development of a rapid and high-throughput quality evaluation method is important for ensuring the effectiveness and safety of the crude materials of Corni fructus...

Adverse symptoms of immunosuppressants (ASI) impact quality of life (QOL) in solid organ transplant recipients, however standardized approaches for active ASI surveillance and intervention are lacking. While management is highly clinician-dependent, clinician views remain largely unexplored. We surveyed Canadian Society of Transplantation members on their perceptions of ASI including frequency, perceived QOL impact, causal attribution, management strategies and success. Sixty-one clinicians participated in the survey of 12 ASI (tremor, diarrhea, nausea, constipation, dyspnea, insomnia, edema, dyspnea, arthralgia, acne, mouth sores, paresthesias), for a 22% response rate...

Patients with end stage renal diseases on hemodialysis have a high prevalence of hepatitis C infection (HCV). In most patients treatment for HCV is delayed until post renal transplant. We assessed the effectiveness and tolerance of ledipasvir/sofosbuvir (LDV/SOF) in 32 post-kidney transplant patients infected with HCV. The group was composed predominantly of treatment naïve (75%) African American (68.75%) males (75%) infected with genotype 1a (62.5%). Most patients received a deceased donor kidney graft (78...
