Bone marrow near paralyzed muscles rapidly becomes inflamed. Muscle paralysis rapidly causes inflammation in nearby bone marrow, which may promote the formation of large cells that break down bone, a new study finds. The article is published in the American Journal of Physiology—Cell Physiology.
Government programs, taxes, and bureaucratic mandates are the closest thing the United States has to the mythical perpetual motion machine — they keep going and never seem to stop.
Once put into place, it is rare for Congress to hit the brakes and reverse course by amending or eliminating faulty laws.
It’s been a tricky period for those in the facts industry, with politicians across the western world deriding the authority of ‘experts’ and trumpeting ‘fake news’ at anything that doesn’t support their agenda.
So it’s interesting to see the results of the latest public opinion survey undertaken by Research!America. It explored the public perception of science, and the results were mildly positive, in that 67% of respondents had a positive image of science, and indeed thought that public policy should be based on the best science available.
The stopgap spending bill approved by Congress is a temporary fix to keep our government running but presents an ongoing challenge in ensuring our nation’s scientific enterprise has robust federal support to advance innovative research. Once again our elected officials have punted on decisions regarding spending levels for defense and non-defense programs, creating uncertainty for federal health and science agencies at a time when immediate actions are necessary to address major health threats including the opioid epidemic.

Propranolol-Induced Circulatory Collapse in a Patient With Thyroid Crisis and Underlying Thyrocardiac Disease: A Word of Caution
Michael McPhaul, MD,
Thyrotoxic crisis or thyroid storm is a severe form of hyperthyroidism and a rare endocrinological emergency. The cornerstones of medical therapy in thyroid storm include decreasing the levels of circulating T3 in the blood as well as inhibiting the hormone’s peripheral effects through β-adrenergic blockade. Propranolol is the preferred agent for β-blockade in hyperthyroidism and thyroid storm due to its additional effect of blocking the peripheral conversion of inactive T4 to active form T3. We report a typical clinical scenario where propranolol was administered in treatment of thyroid storm but an uncommon adverse outcome: circulatory failure from cardiogenic shock warranting vasopressor and inotropic support. Caution with regard to the use long-acting β-blocking agents in patients with underling thyrocardiac disease may prevent this life-threatening adverse effect. Ultra–short-acting β-blockers that are easy to titrate maybe a suitable alternative in this subset of patients. READ MORE
Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Gastroesophageal Junction: A Rare Find
Neoplastic lesions that demonstrate neuroendocrine features are rare. However, esophageal tumors containing both adenocarcinomatous and neuroendocrine components are exceedingly rare. Mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinomas (MANECs) are gastrointestinal tumors with both adenocarcinomatous and neuroendocrine differentiation. They have a tendency for early metastases but clinically manifest relatively late. Imaging studies are often nonspecific with regard to tumor type, and a histopathologic study of biopsy material is required for definitive diagnosis. The overall prognosis is poor. The current report describes a rare case of gastroesophageal MANEC tumor, with approximately 60% neuroendocrine and 40% adenocarcinomatous components. Since there is a dearth of concrete management guidelines for MANECs, we present possible management options to add to the existing literature. READ MORE

Despite 2 prior randomized trials showing benefit for reduced-intensity stem cell transplant vs. conventional cyclophosphamide immune suppression, clinical practice in the US did not change due in part due to concern about patient safety and durability of response.
A virus injected directly into the bloodstream could be used to treat people with aggressive brain tumours, a major new study reports. Scientists have found that the naturally occurring virus could act as an effective immunotherapy in patients with brain cancer or other cancers that have spread to the brain.

A new study looks to blood caffeine levels in search of a better means to diagnose Parkinson's disease before the first clear symptoms start to show. Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by tremor of the limbs, difficulties with maintaining balance and coordination, and slowness of movement.
