A Comment on the Science of Hair Aging.

Int J Trichology 2018 Nov-Dec;10(6):245-254

Department of Dermatology, Universidade Federal Fluminense, Centro de Ciencias Medicas, Hospital Universitario Antonia Pedro, Niterói-Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

In contrast to the skin, aging of the hair has seemingly only recently found the attention of dermatological meetings, mainly promoted by the cosmetic industry for marketing purposes. In fact, basic scientists interested in the biology of hair growth and pigmentation have for some time already exposed the hair follicle as a highly accessible model with unique opportunities for the study of age-related effects. As a result, the science of hair aging focuses on two main streams of interest: the esthetic problem of aging hair and its management, in terms of age-related effects on hair color, quantity, and quality; and the biological problem of aging hair, in terms of microscopic, biochemical, and molecular changes underlying the aging process.

Receptor Binding Affinities of Synthetic Cannabinoids Determined by Non-Isotopic Receptor Binding Assay.

Toxicol Res 2019 Jan 15;35(1):37-44. Epub 2018 Jan 15.

Neuroimmunology Lab, College of Pharmacy, Wonkwang University, Iksan, Korea.

A major predictor of the efficacy of natural or synthetic cannabinoids is their binding affinity to the cannabinoid type I receptor (CB) in the central nervous system, as the main psychological effects of cannabinoids are achieved via binding to this receptor. Conventionally, receptor binding assays have been performed using isotopes, which are inconvenient owing to the effects of radioactivity. In the present study, the binding affinities of five cannabinoids for purified CB were measured using a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) technique as a putative non-isotopic receptor binding assay.

Use of Toothpaste and Toothbrushing Patterns Among Children and Adolescents - United States, 2013-2016.

MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep 2019 Feb 1;68(4):87-90. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Fluoride use is one of the main factors responsible for the decline in prevalence and severity of dental caries and cavities (tooth decay) in the United States (1). Brushing children's teeth is recommended when the first tooth erupts, as early as 6 months, and the first dental visit should occur no later than age 1 year (2-4). However, ingestion of too much fluoride while teeth are developing can result in visibly detectable changes in enamel structure such as discoloration and pitting (dental fluorosis) (1). Read More
