The Evidence for Opioid-Induced Hyperalgesia Today

Abstract: Hyperalgesia is an increased response to painful sensation. Opioid–induced hyperalgesia occurs after sustained opioid exposure and⁄or following abrupt cessation of opioid. At the cellular level, adenylyl cyclase superactivation and elevated cAMP levels lead to PKA–mediated enhanced neurotransmitter release.

Semi-Automated Co-Segmentation of Tumor Volume Using Multimodality Pet-Ct in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

Abstract: Lung cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer for both men and women with the highest associated mortality rate. Positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET-CT) are accurate evaluation modalities in determining lung cancer extent and aggression.

Molecular Network of NLRP3 Inflammasome Activation-Responsive Genes in a Human Monocyte Cell Line

Abstract:Inflammasome, activated by pathogen-derived and host-derived danger signals, constitutes a multimolecular signaling complex that serves as a platform for Caspase-1 (CASP1) activation and interleukin-1β (IL-1β) maturation.

Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) Influences the Disease Progression of Chronic Hepatitis C (CH-C): Histopathological Study of Liver Biopsies in 400 Cases with CH-C

Abstract: The occasional occurrence of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) in chronic hepatitis C (CH-C) has been reported, but the influence of NASH on the disease progression of CH-C has not been clarified. The purpose of the present study was to clarify

Transition Metal Clusters: A Unique STEM Playground

Abstract: Transition metal clusters are molecular oxide-bridged assemblies of metal ions, which are surrounded by an organic envelope; the latter is the feature that keeps them zero-dimensional (molecular), and prevents them from polymerizing. Oxide bridges are typical for transition metal clusters, but hydroxides, halides, and pseudohalides are also common.

Austin Journal of Neurological Disorders & Epilepsy

Abstract: Chondromas are rare intracranial tumors at an estimated incidence of 0.2-0.5% [1,2]. They usually arise from synchondrosis at the skull base, and are therefore seen mostly in sphenopetrosal, spheno-occipital and spheno-ethmoidal regions.
