Buona Lettura!
The purpose of this study was to investigate factors influencing eating performance in older adults with dementia (OAWDs) in long-term care (LTC) facilities. MethodsThis cross-sectional study examined risk factors for compromised eating performance by comparing both independent and dependent older adults with dementia. The study participants were 117 OAWDs in LTC facilities in South Korea. … Continue reading Factors associated with #eating performance in older adults with #dementia in long-term care facilities: a cross-sectional study
Highlights•n-3 and n-6 PUFAs preferentially accumulate in lipid droplets of acidic cancer cells •Excess LC-PUFAs undergo peroxidation and induce ferroptosis in acidic cancer cells •DGAT inhibitors prevent the formation of lipid droplets and promote ferroptosis •DGATi enhance the tumor growth inhibitory effects of dietary n-3 LC-PUFAs in mice SummaryTumor acidosis promotes disease progression through a … Continue reading Peroxidation of n-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated #fatty acids in the acidic #tumor environment leads to ferroptosis-mediated anticancer effects
This study explores the relationship between temperature and the number of aggressive incidents and coercive interventions in the years 2007–2019 in six psychiatric hospitals in the south of the Germany with a total of 1007 beds. The number of aggressive incidents among 164 435 admissions was significantly higher on ‘heat days’ (≥30°C). Furthermore, there was … Continue reading #Aggressive incidents in #psychiatric hospitals on #heat days
Stress is a significant risk factor for the development of major depressive disorder (MDD), yet the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Preclinically, adaptive and maladaptive stress-induced changes in glutamatergic function have been observed in the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC). Here, we examine stress-induced changes in human mPFC glutamate using magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) in two healthy … Continue reading Reduced adaptation of glutamatergic #stress response is associated with #pessimistic expectations in #depression
