An autoimmune disease prevented by anti-retroviral drugs

Beck-Engeser et al. Retrovirology 2011, 8:91http://www.retrovirology.com/content/8/1/91 An autoimmune disease prevented by anti-retroviral drugs Gabriele B Beck-Engeser1, Dan Eilat2 and Matthias Wabl1* Background: Both Aicardi-Goutières syndrome, a Mendelian mimic of congenital infection, and the autoimmunedisease systemic lupus erythematosus can result from mutations in the gene encoding the enzyme Trex1. In mice,the absence of Trex1 causes severe myocarditis. The enzyme is thought to degrade endogenous retroelements,thus linking them to autoimmune disease. However, inhibition of reverse transcription by the inhibitor zidovudine(AZT) did not ameliorate the disease, weakening the link to retroelements.

Volume 3, Issue 3 A Periodic Electronic Publication for & by the Staff of Winchester Public Schools Superintendent's Message Goal for the New Year Let's face it, New Year's resolutions don't get a whole lot of respect. Our annual rite of commit-ment, usually directed at self improvement—"this year I'm going to take 10 pounds off, and keepit off!" - is often long since forgotten by the time the winter snow melts and the first signs ofspring appear. I love the sentiment of the New Year's resolution. We mark the passage of timewith the turning of the calendar, and with it we make a commitment to do something better, tobe a healthier person, to do something extraordinary in our life. It's our lack of follow-throughthat I find disheartening.

Pharmacological Treatment of Schizophrenia by Richard H. Hall, 1998 Drugs The primary theory of schizophrenia at the neurotransmitter level, the dopamine hypothesis, was formed as the result of an accidental, yet dramatic event in the history of the treatment of schizophrenia. In the 1940s a French surgeon, Henri Laborit, began using a drug in an effort to reduce post operative shock in his patients. Laborit found that the drug reduced patients' anxiety without impairing cognitive functioning. This finding lead French drug companies to explore similar drugs, and as a result Chlorpromazine was developed. This drug was tested on a variety of mental disorders and did not seem to have much affect on disorders such as depression, but had dramatic effects on schizophrenia. As a result the "drug revolution" in the treatment of schizophrenia was born, and the result was profound. Schizophrenic patients who had been "out of touch" from consensus reality for years, were suddenly able to function effectively in society. As we'll discuss below, the effects do not occur for all schizophrenics, and there were side effects. Nevertheless, the introduction of drugs like chlorpromazine increased practitioners' ability to treat schizophrenia more dramatically than anything before, or anything that has come sense. Like all anti-schizophrenic drugs that have since been introduced, chlorpromazine was a dopamine (DA) antagonist. Since the introduction of chlorpromazine, anti-schizophrenic drugs have improved. Primarily they have become more specific in their effect, and, as a result, the side effects have decreased. One of the first widely used drugs introduced after Chlorpromazine is called Haloperidol (that goes by the commercial name, Haldol), and it is also a dopamine antagonist. However, it has it's primary effect on one principal type of dopamine receptor, DA2 receptors. Recently another class

THE TREATMENT OF SYMPTOMATIC OSTEOPOROTIC SPINAL COMPRESSION FRACTURES GUIDELINE AND EVIDENCE REPORT Adopted by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Board of Directors September 24, 2010 AAOS Clinical Practice Guidelines Unit Disclaimer This Clinical Practice Guideline was developed by an AAOS physician volunteer Work Group based on a systematic review of the current scientific and clinical information and accepted approaches to treatment and/or diagnosis. This Clinical Practice Guideline is not intended to be a fixed protocol, as some patients may require more or less treatment or different means of diagnosis. Clinical patients may not necessarily be the same as those found in a clinical trial. Patient care and treatment should always be based on a clinician's independent medical judgment, given the individual patient's clinical circumstances.
