[Perspectives] Sheena McCormack: helping to prepare the world for PrEP
Fri, 27 Mar 2015 12:20:16 +0100 | LANCET
As a clinician who has witnessed the devastating impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic since the 1980s, Sheena McCormack is enthusiastic about her latest project, the UK Medical Research Council (MRC) PROUD study. As lead investigator, she has been investigating the effect of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to protect against HIV infection in high-risk men who have sex with men (MSM). PROUD has shown that PrEP reduces new HIV infections by 86%. “These results show that MSM who know they are at high risk of HIV are willing to take PrEP and it works incredibly well at preventing HIV infection in the real world”, says McCormack, who works at University College London and is a Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at Imperial College London.

Zolpidem and Eszopiclone prime α1β2γ2 GABAA receptors for longer duration activity
Fri, 27 Mar 2015 10:21:11 +0100 | British Journal of Pharmacology
CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONSAs the derived mechanism successfully simulated the effects of eszopiclone and zolpidem on ensemble currents, we propose it as a definitive mechanism accounting for the effects of both drugs. Our findings reveal that eszopiclone and zolpidem enhance GABAAR currents via a mechanism that differs from that proposed for benzodiazepines. (Source: British Journal of Pharmacology)

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Journal of Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery
This report demonstrates the clinical use of a modified, truly anatomic, root analogue zirconia implant for immediate replacement of a right mandibular first premolar. A 22-year-old female patient with chronic apical periodontitis of the right mandibular first premolar was referred and the tooth was carefully extracted. A truly anatomical, root identical, roughened zirconia implant modified by macro-retentions was manufactured and placed into the extraction socket by tapping 3 days later. After 4 months a composite crown was cemented in place. No complications occurred during the healing period. A good functional and aesthetic result was achieved with minimal bone resorption and soft tissue recession at 18 months follow-up. This report describes the successful clinical use of an immedia...
