Decreased Plasma Oxytocin Levels in Patients With PTSD.

Front Psychol 2021 1;12:612338. Epub 2021 Jul 1.

Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Section of Psychiatry, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy.

Introduction: Although the pathophysiology of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is still unclear, growing preclinical evidences suggest that oxytocin (OT), a pleiotropic hormone, is possibly involved. However, direct studies on OT levels or clinical trials with this exogenous hormone in patients with PTSD led to inconsistent findings.

I Only Want Passionate Relationships: Are You Ready for That?

Front Psychol 2021 14;12:673953. Epub 2021 Jun 14.

Department of Sociology, University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain.

Research shows the existence of a coercive dominant discourse that associates attraction with violence and influences the socialization processes of many girls and women. According to previous studies, the coercive dominant discourse constitutes a risk factor for gender violence, as men with violent attitudes and behaviors are socially presented as attractive and exciting while egalitarian and non-aggressive men are considered "not sexy." Yet fewer evidences indicate that men acting from the New Alternative Masculinities (NAM) model overcome this double standard through verbal and non-verbal communicative acts, which tell that they do not choose women acting under the coercive dominant discourse for a relationship because they are not "jumping for joy" when meeting them.

MiR-145 suppresses the motility of prostate cancer cells by targeting cadherin-2.

Mol Cell Biochem 2021 May 27. Epub 2021 May 27.

Institute of Tissue Transplantation and Immunology, Jinan University, Guangzhou, 510630, People's Republic of China.

Metastasis is the main cause of poor prognosis in the advanced prostate cancer in clinic. Accumulating evidences have proposed that cell motility greatly contributes to the multiple steps of the metastatic process. MicroRNA-145 (miR-145) has been found to be downregulated in prostate cancer and serve as a putative tumor suppressor via decrease of cell growth and augmentation of cell death; however, the effects and the underlying mechanisms of miR-145 in prostate cancer cell motility have not been completely clarified.
