Non-enzymatic glycation mediated advanced glycation end products (AGEs) generation results in the pathogenesis of diabetic complications and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) which is greatly influenced by 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl Co-A reductase (HMG-R) activity. HMG-R inhibitors, statins, are well known for reducing mortality and morbidity of ASCVD in patients with diabetes due to their pleiotropic effects independent of cholesterol lowering. Due to distinct chemical structures, various statins may play important role in the inhibition of AGEs mediated pathologies...

Overexpression of ecto-5'-nucleotidase is found to be linked to cancer progression and other diseases which makes screening of its inhibitors on demand. Unfortunately, there is scarcity of reported ecto-5'-nucleotidase inhibitors because of unavailability of simple, fast and efficient methods to study its inhibition. In this study, we have developed a very fast, reverse polarity capillary electrophoresis based method for screening of ecto-5'-nucleotidase inhibitors. Both EOF and electrophoretic mobility were maintained in same direction by dynamically coating lining of capillary and applying negative voltage, resulting in appearance of both adenosine monophosphate (AMP) and adenosine peaks in less than two minutes...

Inflammatory pain is a complex and multifactorial disorder. Apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease 1 (APE1), also called Redox Factor-1 (Ref-1), is constitutively expressed in the central nervous system and regulates various cellular functions including oxidative stress. In the present study, we investigated APE1 modulation and associated pain behavior changes in the complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA) model of inflammatory pain in rats. In addition we tested the anti-inflammatory effects of E3330, a selective inhibitor of APE1-redox activity, in CFA pain condition...

Toxoplasma gondii is one of the most widely spread parasitic organisms in the world. T. gondii causes primary, chronic infection and mortality. Major surface antigen 1 is the most abundant tachyzoite surface protein and highly conserved between species and causes strong humoural response. Some studies showed that the peptide sequence of surface antigen has immunity. Therefore, tachyzoite surface antigenic peptide sequence is one of the good candidates for vaccine development. However, conformational information and delivery systems are very important parameters for vaccine development...

Opioids are first-line therapy for cancer-related pain. In addition, corticosteroids are commonly utilized as adjuvant analgesics for pain and other symptoms in the oncology setting with limited supporting data. A retrospective analysis was conducted evaluating adult hospitalized patients receiving opioids who received once-daily dexamethasone on the recommendation of a specialty palliative care team during their hospitalization from January 1, 2015, to January 1, 2016. Primary end point was to describe prescribing patterns of dexamethasone in this patient population and secondarily examining any effect on oral morphine equivalent daily dose (MEDD), numeric pain score (NPS), and unwanted effects at 24 and 48 hours after the first dose of dexamethasone...

Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is a genetically and clinically diverse disorder which is characterized by myoclonic jerks, usually after awakening from sleep. It affects both genders equally and manifests during the second decade of life. The various precipitating factors include stress, light, sleep deprivation, and alcohol. A history of morning clumsiness supported by typical electroencephalography (EEG) findings, together with a normal clinical examination all point towards a diagnosis of JME. We present the case of a nine-year-old girl who presented with cognitive dysfunction in addition to myoclonic jerks...
