(1) To cross-sectionally and longitudinally investigate relationships between the availability and adequacy of both close personal attachment and interactional support, and psychiatric morbidity in a sample of early stage breast cancer patients participating in a 6-week psychoeducational intervention. (2) To address the question of directionality in these(More)
We have used virtual screening to develop models for the binding of aryl substituted heterocycles to p38α MAPK. Virtual screening was conducted on a number of p38α MAPK crystal structures using a library of 46 known p38α MAPK inhibitors containing a heterocyclic core substituted by pyridine and fluorophenyl rings (structurally related to SB203580) and a set(More)
Obese, diabetic C57BL/Ks db/db mice that lack the long-form leptin receptor exhibit no decrease in body weight or food intake when treated with leptin. Here we compared responses to leptin in two strains of db/db mice: C57BL/6J mice that are hyperglycemic and hyperinsulinemic and C57BL/Ks that are hyperglycemic and normo- or hypoinsulinemic. Chronic(More)
The purpose of the study was to assess a large representative sample of cancer patients on distress levels, common psychosocial problems, and awareness and use of psychosocial support services. A total of 3095 patients were assessed over a 4-week period with the Brief Symptom Inventory-18 (BSI-18), a common problems checklist, and on awareness and use of(More)
In this article, the authors explore the breadth and depth of published research linking dietary vitamins and minerals (micronutrients) to mood. Since the 1920s, there have been many studies on individual vitamins (especially B vitamins and Vitamins C, D, and E), minerals (calcium, chromium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium), and vitamin-like compounds(More)
Malignant human breast tumours produced more prostaglandin-like material during homogenisation than did benign tumours or normal breast tissue. Greatest synthesis in vitro occurred with tumours associated with bone metastases, and the highest "basal" amounts tended to occur in tumours showing spread histologically. It is suggested that prostaglandins may(More)
BACKGROUND To determine in open trials the therapeutic benefit of a nutritional supplement for bipolar disorder. METHOD The sample consisted of 11 patients with DSM-IV-diagnosed bipolar disorder aged 19 to 46 years, who were taking a mean of 2.7 psychotropic medications each at study entry. Three additional patients dropped out prematurely. The(More)
Human malignant breast tumours from 23 patients contained and synthesised more prostaglandin-like material than normal breast tissue from the same patients or benign neoplasms (5 patients). Bone metastases were associated with tumours having high levels of P.G.-like material, which usually resembled P.G.F compounds, and this may be important since some(More)
Folate biosynthesis remains a key target for antimicrobial therapy. Folate is an essential vitamin (vitamin B9) that is required for many one-carbon transfer reactions and is a critical precursor for the biosynthesis of purines, pyrimidi-nes, and amino acids. Unlike higher eukaryotes that scavenge preformed folates, prokaryotic and lower eukaryotic(More)
