The daily temperature-mortality relationship is typically U shaped. The temperature of minimum mortality (MMT) has been shown to vary in space (higher at lower latitudes) and time (higher in recent periods). This indicates human populations adapt to their local environment. The pace of this adaptation is unknown. The objective of this study was to investigate the differences in the temperature-mortality relationship in continental France between foreign born and natives. Source data were the 5,273,005 death certificates of individuals living in continental France between 2000 and 2009 at the time of their death...

In the present work, fenugreek seed gum (FSG)/clay nanocomposite films were prepared with nanoclays (Na(+) montmorillonite [MMT], halloysite [HNT] and Nanomer® I.44 P [NM]) at different amounts (0, 2.5, 5.0 and 7.5g clay/100g FSG) by solution casting method and characterized. Increasing amount of nanoclay significantly (P<0.05) improved oxygen barrier and thermal properties of the biodegradable films. Agar diffusion tests revealed that FSG based nanocomposite films exhibited strong antimicrobial properties against foodborne pathogens namely Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli O157:H7, Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus cereus independently of clay type and concentration...

BACKGROUND: Some patients with opioid use disorder (OUD) are treated with methadone maintenance therapy (MMT). However, as with opioids, methadone has major side-effects; sexual dysfunction is a particularly distressing such effect. Rosa Damascena oil has been shown to reduce subjective sexual dysfunction in patients with major depressive disorders, but its influence on testosterone has not so far been tested. The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of Rosa Damascena oil on sexual dysfunction and testosterone levels among male patients with OUD and undergoing MMT...

Kang Peng, Huaming Yang
Carbon hybridized montmorillonite nanosheets (C/MMT) were successfully prepared by mixing intercalation, hydrothermal carbonization and calcination pyrolysis of montmorillonite and sucrose. The amount adsorbed on C/MMT reaches 0.84 g g(-1) at a Congo red concentration of 1.0 g L(-1), which could be attributed to their special structures and synergistic sorption.

OBJECTIVES: As rates of opiate misuse rise in the United States, so do significant associated health and financial consequences to afflicted individuals, their families, and society at large. Methadone maintenance therapy (MMT) is one evidence-based approach to treating opiate addiction, yet supplemental psychosocial treatment to support this approach is lacking. Mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP) has shown to be efficacious in various substance use populations, but has yet to be assessed with MMT clients...

INTRODUCTION: Addiction is a disease which affects the relation between the person and the object of his addiction. One of the major risks for people addicted to heroin treated with Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT) is to develop addiction from another substance, particularly alcohol, while treating heroin addiction, "shifting" this way from heroin addic- tion to alcoholism. OBJECTIVE: describing such "shifting" process within the population taken into considera- tion for this study...

To study whether poor sleep that is known to characterize methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) patients may be related to their past sexual abuse and/or their treatment modality, we compared perceived sleep indices (Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI); Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS)) and depression (21-HAM-D) between women with and without sexual abuse history (Childhood Trauma Questionnaire) in MMT and in a non-MMT ("opioid medication-free") in-patient rehabilitation center (MABAT). Twenty-six sexually abused women in MMT had the worst sleep quality scores (PSQI) (10...

We conducted a cross-sectional study in Tuyen Quang Province, a mountainous province in northern Vietnam, to examine rates of psychological distress among 241 patients receiving methadone maintenance treatment (MMT). Using the Kessler psychological distress Scale, we found that approximately one-fourth (26.8%) of respondents suffered from mental health pathologies. Physical health problems, current drug use, and alcohol abuse were found to be associated with mental health problems among the participants. Our findings highlight the high prevalence of psychological distress among MMT patients in northern Vietnam, and the need to integrate mental and physical health care services, as well as behavioral health counseling, into currently existing MMT clinics in this region...

It is well established that organophosphate pesticides, such as diazinon, pose environmental and health risks. Diazinon is prone to rapid acidic hydrolysis, forming the less toxic compound 2-isopropyl-6-methyl-4-pyrimidinol (IMP). In this study, diazinon surface catalyzed hydrolysis was achieved by its adsorption to a composite, based on protonated poly (4-vinyl-pyridine-co-styrene) (HPVPcoS) and montmorillonite (MMT) clay. The adsorption affinity and kinetics of diazinon to HPVPcoS-MMT were significantly higher than those obtained to the deprotonated PVPcoS-MMT, emphasizing the importance of hydrogen bonding...
