- Racial Discrimination and Resting-State Functional Connectivity of Salience Network Nodes in Trauma-Exposed Black Adults in the United Statesby E Kate Webb on January 24, 2022
CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: These results add to the mounting literature that racial discrimination is associated with neural correlates of vigilance and hyperarousal. The study findings extend this theory by showing that this association is apparent even when accounting for socioeconomic position, lifetime trauma, and symptoms of psychological distress related to an acute trauma.
- PTSD symptoms after respiratory and cardiovascular emergencies predict risk of hospital readmission: a prospective cohort studyby Danielle Kovalsky on January 22, 2022
CONCLUSIONS: Hospital readmission is common among survivors of acute respiratory failure and cardiovascular instability, and PTSD symptoms 30 days post-discharge are an independent predictor of hospital readmission. Survivors of medical emergencies may warrant follow-up evaluation for PTSD symptoms, and future research is warranted to better understand the relationship between psychological trauma and hospital readmission.
- Naringenin affords protection against lipopolysaccharide/D-galactosamine-induced acute liver failure: Role of autophagyby Omaima A Ahmedy on January 22, 2022
Acute liver failure (ALF) is considered a fatal clinical disorder and novel therapeutic interventions are mandatory. Naringenin is a flavonoid with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiapoptotic effects that have displayed beneficial effects in different animal models of ALF. The current study aimed at investigating the hepatoprotective effect and the possible underlying molecular mechanisms of naringenin in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)/d-galactosamine (D-Gal) mouse model of ALF. Interestingly,...
- Psychological Symptoms in COVID-19 Patients: Insights into Pathophysiology and Risk Factors of Long COVID-19by Angel Yun-Kuan Thye on January 21, 2022

Mental health implications related to a COVID-19 infection include both acute and long-term consequences. Here we discuss COVID-19-associated psychiatric sequelae, particularly anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), drawing parallels to past coronavirus outbreaks. A literature search was completed across three databases, using keywords to search for relevant...
