Risk Assessment of QT Prolongation with Citalopram and Escitalopram: An Evidence Based Review André S. Pollmann1, Joel C. Bergman1, Katie L. Lines1 1BSc Pharm canditate, College of Pharmacy, Faculty of Health Professions, Dalhousie University Recent health advisories have identified a risk of QT prolongation with the commonly used antidepressants citalopram (Celexa®) and escitalopram (Cipralex®). Pertinent literature was searched for, uncovered, and critically assessed to determine the comparative risk of arrhythmias or death between citalopram and escitalopram. No data were found directly addressing our clinical question by evaluating the two antidepressants for their comparative risk. However, several randomized and crossover trials, as well as a cohort study, were found to address questions regarding the cardiovascular risk of each agent. Available studies indicate a dose-related lengthening of the QT interval with both antidepressants, suggesting that these agents should be used at lower doses in patients with risk factors for arrhythmias. Overall, the evidence suggests that there is no clear advantage to using escitalopram in place of citalopram to minimize the risk of QT prolongation resulting in fatal arrhythmias.

Italian Espresso National InstituteEspresso is now one of the most successful symbols of "made in Italy" worldwide. It is also one of those that are copied the most, often with very poor results. It is not rare for the word espresso, coupled as it may be with other words or symbols evoking the spirit of Italy, to conceal all kinds of preparations, often in very bad taste.

In vivo hyperpolarized carbon13 magnetic resonance spectroscopy reveals increased pyruvate carboxylase flux in an insulinresistant mouse model

In Vivo Hyperpolarized Carbon-13 Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Reveals Increased Pyruvate Carboxylase Flux in an Insulin-Resistant Mouse Model Philip Lee,1,2 Waifook Leong,1,3 Trish Tan,1,3 Miangkee Lim,1 Weiping Han,1,3,4 and George K. Radda1 The pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes is characterized by impaired insulin action andincreased hepatic glucose production (HGP). Despite the importance of hepatic metabolicaberrations in diabetes development, there is currently no molecular probe that allows mea-surement of hepatic gluconeogenic pathways in vivo and in a noninvasive manner. In thisstudy, we used hyperpolarized carbon 13 (13C)-labeled pyruvate magnetic resonance spec-troscopy (MRS) to determine changes in hepatic gluconeogenesis in a high-fat diet (HFD)-induced mouse model of type 2 diabetes. Compared with mice on chow diet, HFD-fed micedisplayed higher levels of oxaloacetate, aspartate, and malate, along with increased 13C labelexchange rates between hyperpolarized [1-13C]pyruvate and its downstream metabolites,[1-13C]malate and [1-13C]aspartate. Biochemical assays using liver extract revealed up-regu-lated malate dehydrogenase activity, but not aspartate transaminase activity, in HFD-fedmice. Moreover, the 13C label exchange rate between [1-13C]pyruvate and [1-13C]aspartate(kpyr->asp) exhibited apparent correlation with gluconeogenic pyruvate carboxylase (PC) ac-tivity in hepatocytes. Finally, up-regulated HGP by glucagon stimulation was detected byan increase in aspartate signal and kpyr->asp, whereas HFD mice treated with metformin for2 weeks displayed lower production of aspartate and malate, as well as reduced kpyr->asp and

systeme 2010, Jg. 24 (2) T. Friedrich­Hett, Positives Altern Positives Altern Reflexionen zur Dekonstruktion einer (noch) unbeliebten Lebensphase Thomas Friedrich-Hett Der vorliegende Beitrag versucht für die Gegenwart negativer Alters­bilder in unserer Gesellschaft zu sensibilisieren, die im Sinne sich selbst erfüllender Prophezeiungen Fähigkeitsverluste bei älteren Menschen begünstigen können. Exemplarische Vorstellungen ge­rontologischer Befunde zu körperlicher und geistiger Verfassung, Liebesleben, Resilienz und Optimismus im Alter sollen den Blick auf Mythen und Wirklichkeiten schärfen, der leider auch in psycho­sozialen Berufen durch Vorbehalte getrübt wird. Die Beschreibung systemischer Grundlagen für die Arbeit mit älteren Menschen, die Darstellung eines Praxisbeispiels und eine kurze Übersicht über neu­ere kreative Therapie­ und Beratungsformen in der Arbeit mit älteren Menschen dürfen als Einladung an KollegInnen im psychosozialen Feld verstanden werden, sich vermehrt für Altersfragen und Pro­bleme älterer Menschen zu interessieren.


Social Studies of Science A history of deep brain © The Author(s) 2013 Reprints and permissions: stimulation: Technological innovation and the role of clinical assessment tools John Gardner Department of Sociology and Communications, Brunel University London, London, UK AbstractDeep brain stimulation involves using a pacemaker-like device to deliver constant electrical stimu-lation to problematic areas within the brain. It has been used to treat over 40,000 people with Parkinson's disease and essential tremor worldwide and is currently undergoing clinical trials as a treatment for depression and obsessive–compulsive disorder. This article will provide an his-torical account of deep brain stimulation in order to illustrate the plurality of interests involved in the development and stabilization of deep brain stimulation technology. Using Latour's notion of immutable mobiles, this article will illustrate the importance of clinical assessment tools in shaping technological development in the era of medical device regulation. Given that such tools can serve commercial and professional interests, this article suggests that it is necessary to scru-tinise their application in research contexts to ensure that they capture clinical changes that are meaningful for patients and their families. This is particularly important in relation to potentially ethically problematic therapies such as deep brain stimulation for psychiatric disorders.
