Comparison of the prevalence of alcohol, cannabis and other drugs between 900 injured drivers and 900 control subjects: results of a French collaborative study.
TLDR
A higher prevalence of opiates, alcohol, cannabinoids and the combination of these last two compounds in blood samples from drivers involved in road accidents than in those from controls, which suggests a causal role for these compounds in road crashes. Expand
Nuclear and mitochondrial DNA analysis of a 2,000-year-old necropolis in the Egyin Gol Valley of Mongolia.
TLDR
This is the first study using biparental, paternal, and maternal genetic systems to reconstruct partial genealogies in a protohistoric necropolis and showed close relationships between several specimens. Expand
Ancient DNA reveals male diffusion through the Neolithic Mediterranean route
TLDR
The Y-haplotype lineages characterized and the study of their current repartition in European populations confirm a greater influence of the Mediterranean than the Central European route in the peopling of southern Europe during the Neolithic transition. Expand
Detection of physiological concentrations of cortisol and cortisone in human hair.
TLDR
A new extraction, purification, and separation technique using liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry for the identification and quantification of two endogenous glucocorticoids: cortisol and cortisone is developed and it is found that cortis one concentrations in hair are significantly higher before the age of 20. Expand
Ancient DNA provides new insights into the history of south Siberian Kurgan people
TLDR
The data indicate that at the Bronze and Iron Age timeframe, south Siberians were blue (or green)-eyed, fair-skinned and light-haired people and that they might have played a role in the early development of the Tarim Basin civilization. Expand
Ancient DNA suggests the leading role played by men in the Neolithic dissemination
TLDR
DNA extracted from human remains excavated in a Spanish funeral cave is studied to obtain information on the early Neolithic funeral practices and on the biogeographical origin of the inhumed individuals, indicating a surprising temporal genetic homogeneity in these groups. Expand
Buprenorphine-related deaths among drug addicts in France: a report on 20 fatalities.
TLDR
Intravenous injection of crushed tablets, a concomitant intake of psychotropics (especially benzodiazepines), and the high dosage of the BUP formulation available in France appear to be the major risk factors for such fatalities. Expand
GHB in postmortem toxicology. Discrimination between endogenous production from exposure using multiple specimens.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a positive (>50 mg/l) postmortem blood GHB concentration cannot support alone drug exposure and that it is essential to document the case with other specimens, including peripheral blood and vitreous humor. Expand
Molecular identification by "suicide PCR" of Yersinia pestis as the agent of medieval black death.
TLDR
Medieval Black Death was plague and the causative organism was debated because no definitive evidence has been obtained to confirm the role of Yersinia pestis as the agent of plague, according to the new "suicide PCR" protocol in which the primers are used only once. Expand
