The Number of Cysteine Residues per Mole in Apolipoprotein E Is Associated With the Severity of PTSD Re-Experiencing Symptoms.
This study evaluated associations between this informative ordinal biochemical scale (CysR/mole) and symptom severity in veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or subthreshold PTSD. Results demonstrated a significant negative relationship between the CysR/mole and severity of PTSD re-experiencing symptoms, adjusted for trauma. The findings suggest a genetic influence on PTSD symptomatology and dovetail with recent advances regarding the molecular mechanisms underlying the differential effects of ApoE in the brain.

[Cognitive dysfunctions caused by excessive exposure to manganese compounds. Cognitive disturbances in intravenous users of ephedrone (methcathinone) with manganese compounds].
Authors: Kałwa A, Habrat B Abstract Intravenous injection of self-produced ephedrone (metcathinone) using potassium permanganate as an oxidant can lead to severe, fixed encephalopathy.

Single case reports and small group descriptions show that assessment with screening tools such as the Min...
