Objective. Worldwide, cannabis is the most widely used illicit substance, and it has been identified as a correlate in schizophrenia samples for poorer symptomatic and functional outcomes in many international studies. The object of this retrospective study was to identify the prevalence of cannabis use/abuse and the demographic and clinical ...

Hyperlipidemia is well recognized as an important risk factor in the development of atherosclerosis. Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) are components of cholesterol that are highly associated to an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. Hypercholesterolemia induces proteolytic and oxidative changes in vasculature, leading to a local inflammatory response. Since dietary antioxidants have ...

Objectives: to evaluate efficacy and tolerability of two different dosages of eperisone (150 and 300 mg/day) in comparison with those of diazepam 15 mg/day, orally given for seven days.

Inhaled corticosteroids (ICSs) are recommended as first-line therapy for patients with persistent asthma and as adjunctive therapy in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who experience exacerbations. Administration of nebulized budesonide inhalation suspension (BIS) may be an appropriate alternative in certain patients with asthma or COPD that are uncontrolled ...

Beta-glucan from oats and barley may decrease cardiovascular risk factors. Beta-glucan from some kinds of mushrooms may have as similar effect while modulating the immune system. This pilot trial examined whether beta-glucan derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae can favorably decrease the risk of or symptomology associated with upper respiratory illness. Forty ...

Sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, and methyl hydroxybenzoate are commonly used as preservatives in liquid pharmaceutical preparations. The purpose of this study is to determine the amount of the aforementioned preservatives in pharmaceutical products, as some recent studies have reported serious side effects associated with the ingestion of these substances. The ...

Epidemiological, clinical, and experimental observations have led to the hypothesis that the risk of developing chronic diseases in adulthood is influenced not only by genetic and adult lifestyle factors, but also by environmental factors during early life. Low birth weight, a marker of intrauterine stress, has been linked to predisposition ...

Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is a key enzyme involved with hydrolysis and removal of triglycerides from plasma. LPL deficiency is a rare condition with an estimated prevalence of 1 in [10.sup.6]. It is characterized biochemically by elevated triglycerides and lowered HDL in the plasma and clinically by a constellation of signs ...

The circulatory inflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-[alpha]) is increased in pathologic conditions that initiate or exacerbate vascular endothelial injury, such as diabetes. Protein kinase C (PKC) has been shown to play a critical role in TNF-[alpha]-induced human endothelial cell apoptosis. However, the relative roles played by specific isoforms ...

Although it has been established that some acute phase responses present differently depending on whether a virus or bacteria activates the innate immune system, it has not yet been established whether fever and sickness behaviors, such as anorexia and lethargy, present differently. We therefore investigated the effects of administering lipopolysaccharide ...

The effects of electrical stimulation frequency on force, work loop power output, and fatigue of mouse soleus muscle were investigated in vitro at 35[degrees]C. Increasing stimulation frequency did not significantly affect maximal isometric tetanic stress (overall mean [+ or -] SD, 205 [+ or -] 16.6 kN x [m.sup.-2] between ...

Altered sympathetic nervous activity has been linked to the development and persistence of obesity, partly relating to overfeeding. Binding of the selective, positron-emitting phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE4) inhibitor (R)-[[sup.11]C]rolipram provides a direct index of the CAMP-hydrolyzing enzyme PDE4. This study examines progressive alterations in PDE4 in a high-fat-fed obese animal model. (R)-[[sup.11]C]Rolipram ...

Some receptors and signaling molecules, such as Rho-kinase (ROCK), localize in caveolae. We asked whether the function of histamine receptors ([H.sub.1]) and 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) receptors ([5-HT.sub.2A]) in bovine tracheal smooth muscle are modified after caveolae disruption and if so, whether the altered ROCK activity plays a role in this modification. ...
