Cognitive therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and behavior therapy for the treatment of chronic pain: a single-blind randomized controlled trial.

Pain 2021 Jun 1. Epub 2021 Jun 1.

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Rush University Medical Center Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Washington Department of Psychology, The University of Alabama Professor of Medicine and Population Health Sciences, Division of Preventive and Behavioral Medicine, University of Massachusetts Medical School University of Washington, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University School of Medicine.

Abstract: Trials of Cognitive Therapy (CT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Behavior Therapy (BT) suggest that all three treatments produce reductions in pain and improvements in physical function, mood and sleep disturbance in people with chronic pain conditions.

Calpastatin-Mediated Inhibition of Calpain Ameliorates Skin Scar Formation after Burn Injury.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 May 28;22(11). Epub 2021 May 28.

Department of Pediatrics, Hangang Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine, 12 Beodeunaru-ro 7-gil, Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul 07247, Korea.

Hypertrophic scars, the most common complication of burn injuries, are characterized by excessive deposition of fibroblast-derived extracellular matrix proteins. Calpain, a calcium-dependent protease, is involved in the fibroblast proliferation and extracellular matrix production observed in certain fibrotic diseases. However, its role in the formation of post-burn hypertrophic skin scars remains largely unknown. Read More

Collagen analogs with phosphorylcholine are inflammation-suppressing scaffolds for corneal regeneration from alkali burns in mini-pigs.

Commun Biol 2021 May 21;4(1):608. Epub 2021 May 21.

Centre de recherche, Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, Montréal, QC, Canada.

The long-term survival of biomaterial implants is often hampered by surgery-induced inflammation that can lead to graft failure. Considering that most corneas receiving grafts are either pathological or inflamed before implantation, the risk of rejection is heightened. Here, we show that bioengineered, fully synthetic, and robust corneal implants can be manufactured from a collagen analog (collagen-like peptide-polyethylene glycol hybrid, CLP-PEG) and inflammation-suppressing polymeric 2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine (MPC) when stabilized with the triazine-based crosslinker 4-(4,6-Dimethoxy-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)-4-methylmorpholinium chloride.

Development of a simplified and inexpensive RNA depletion method for plasmid DNA purification using size selection magnetic beads (SSMBs).

Genes Dis 2021 May 20;8(3):298-306. Epub 2020 May 20.

Ministry of Education Key Laboratory of Diagnostic Medicine, School of Laboratory and Diagnostic Medicine, Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, 400016, PR China.

Plasmid DNA (pDNA) isolation from bacterial cells is one of the most common and critical steps in molecular cloning and biomedical research. Almost all pDNA purification involves disruption of bacteria, removal of membrane lipids, proteins and genomic DNA, purification of pDNA from bulk lysate, and concentration of pDNA for downstream applications. While many liquid-phase and solid-phase pDNA purification methods are used, the final pDNA preparations are usually contaminated with varied degrees of host RNA, which cannot be completely digested by RNase A.
