Depression in young people.

Lancet 2022 Aug 5. Epub 2022 Aug 5.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Depression rates in young people have risen sharply in the past decade, especially in females, which is of concern because adolescence is a period of rapid social, emotional, and cognitive development and key life transitions. Adverse outcomes associated with depression in young people include depression recurrence; the onset of other psychiatric disorders; and wider, protracted impairments in interpersonal, social, educational, and occupational functioning. Thus, prevention and early intervention for depression in young people are priorities. Read More

Randomized single oral dose phase 1 study of safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of Iminosugar UV-4 Hydrochloride (UV-4B) in healthy subjects.

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2022 Aug 8;16(8):e0010636. Epub 2022 Aug 8.

AbViro, Bethesda, Maryland, United States of America.

Background: UV-4 (N-(9'-methoxynonyl)-1-deoxynojirimycin, also called MON-DNJ) is an iminosugar small-molecule oral drug candidate with in vitro antiviral activity against diverse viruses including dengue, influenza, and filoviruses and demonstrated in vivo efficacy against both dengue and influenza viruses. The antiviral mechanism of action of UV-4 is through inhibition of the host endoplasmic reticulum-resident α-glucosidase 1 and α-glucosidase 2 enzymes. This inhibition prevents proper glycan processing and folding of virus glycoproteins, thereby impacting virus assembly, secretion, and the fitness of nascent virions. Read More

MedDRA Labeling Groupings to Improve Safety Communication in Product Labels.

Ther Innov Regul Sci 2022 Aug 8. Epub 2022 Aug 8.

Pfizer, Worldwide Safety and Regulatory, New York, USA.

The granularity and structure of the International Council for Harmonisation's (ICH) Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities (MedDRA) are useful for precise coding of adverse events (AEs) for data analysis. In product labeling for healthcare practitioners, however, the granularity of MedDRA Preferred Terms (PTs) can obscure the communication of adverse reactions (ARs). Driven by a focus on patient safety, business needs, and regulatory guidance, many sponsors and regulators have begun to develop institution-specific approaches to clustering similar AR terms in medical product prescribing information on a product-by-product basis.

Deploying elements of scoping review methods for Adverse Outcome Pathway development: A space travel case example.

Int J Radiat Biol 2022 Aug 8:1-38. Epub 2022 Aug 8.

Health Canada, Ottawa, Ontario, K1A 0K9, Canada.

Health protection agencies require scientific information for evidence-based decision-making and guideline development. However, vetting and collating large quantities of published research to identify relevant high-quality studies is a challenge. One approach to address this issue is the use of Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs) that provide a framework to assemble toxicological knowledge into causally linked chains of key events across levels of biological organization to culminate in an adverse health outcome of significance.

Mixed T Helper1/T Helper2/T Cytotoxic Profile in Subjects with Chronic Chagas Disease with Hypersensitivity Reactions to Benznidazole.

Microbiol Spectr 2022 Aug 8:e0135722. Epub 2022 Aug 8.

Hospital Interzonal General de Agudos Eva Perón, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Dermatitis is the most common adverse event during treatment with benznidazole in chronic Chagas disease and is probably mediated by T cells. A set of molecules representative of the different type IV hypersensitivity reactions was evaluated in the circulation and skin biopsies of Trypanosoma cruzi-infected subjects presenting dermatitis during benznidazole administration. Through cytometric bead assays and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay capture techniques, the serum levels of cytokines, chemokines, proapoptotic molecules, and mediators of the activation and migration of eosinophils and T cells were measured in subjects infected with Trypanosoma cruzi who exhibited skin adverse events ( = 22) and compared with those without adverse events ( = 37) during benznidazole therapy.
