Lazy, not biased: Susceptibility to partisan fake news is better explained by lack of reasoning than by motivated reasoning.

Why do people believe blatantly inaccurate news headlines ("fake news")? Do we use our reasoning abilities to convince ourselves that statements that align with our ideology are true, or does reasoning allow us to effectively differentiate fake from real regardless of political ideology? Here we test these competing accounts in two studies (total N = 3446 Mechanical Turk workers) by using the Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT) as a measure of the propensity to engage in analytical reasoning. We find that C...

Public Health Implications of Counterfeit Medications.

Counterfeit medications are broadly defined as drugs that can contain inadequate amounts of active ingredients, contain the wrong active ingredients, be contaminated with harmful substances, and/or be falsely labeled. These medications are a public health issue globally, and their presence in the United States is growing. Counterfeit medications are produced without regulatory oversight and are distributed illegally, often via online sources. Use of these medications can result in adverse effects or a lack ...

Diabetes: simple patient characteristics should help inform choice of second line drug, study finds.

Diabetic skin and UV light: Protection by antioxidants.

Non-invasive biophysical methods were used to study the effect of antioxidant gels, which were prepared from Pinus halepensis bark extracts, vitamin C and water, on the skin of diabetic hairless mice irradiated with UV radiation of 1 and 2 minimal erythemal doses (MEDs). The calculated transepidermal water loss (TEWL) for diabetic mice was found to be fivefold higher on day 11 after irradiation, and in all cases, the TEWL values converged to their initial values on day 21. Both pinus and vitamin C gels inhi...

The demise of drug design litigation: death by federal preemption.

For over half a century, courts and commentators have disagreed as to the standards governing liability for drug design cases. In the last several years, the United States Supreme Court decided two cases that will have a profound effect on whether drug design defect cases, in general, are federally preempted. In PLIVA v. Mensing and Mutual Pharmaceutical Co. v. Bartlett, the Court preempted product liability actions for failure to warn and design defect against the manufacturers of generic drugs that met th...

Drug Quality In South Africa: A Field Test.

To assess drug quality and pharmaceutical care in South Africa, "mystery" (i.e. anonymous) customers collected 316 samples from July to September 2016. Solid dosage forms containing amoxicillin alone or in combination with clavulanic acid as well as analgesics containing paracetamol alone or in combination were sampled in a randomized fashion from the formal market (pharmacies) and by convenient sampling from the informal market. Visual inspection, uniformity of dosage units and dissolution testing were per...

Packaging analysis of counterfeit medicines.

The authentication of the packaging represents an important step in the investigation of suspected counterfeits of pharmaceutical products. The visual comparison with a retained sample is the first step to detect a counterfeited packaging. Due to the improvement of technologies like printing, the emergence of counterfeits with a better appearance can be observed. Moreover counterfeits are nowadays often a combination of fake and genuine parts that have been manipulated. Authenticating each part of the produ...

Barriers to accurately assessing prescription opioid misuse on surveys.

Surveys are the leading method of gathering data on prevalence and correlates of prescription opioid misuse. As the opioid crisis continues in the United States, reliable data on misuse have become increasingly important as under- and overreporting is common. This perspective discusses six potential barriers to researchers accurately assessing opioid misuse on surveys. These barriers include lack of respondent drug knowledge, researchers not properly defining opioids for respondents, querying overall opioid...

Echo chambers and viral misinformation: Modeling fake news as complex contagion.

The viral spread of digital misinformation has become so severe that the World Economic Forum considers it among the main threats to human society. This spread have been suggested to be related to the similarly problematized phenomenon of "echo chambers", but the causal nature of this relationship has proven difficult to disentangle due to the connected nature of social media, whose causality is characterized by complexity, non-linearity and emergence. This paper uses a network simulation model to study a p...

Perspectives of Lipid-Based Drug Carrier Systems for Transdermal Delivery.

Transdermal delivery serves as non-invasive and effortless terminable means for systemic as well as topical drug delivery and finds itself as an option to conventional delivery route. Significant impervious nature of skin is the greatest hurdle for successful delivery of drug molecules to the deeper layers of skin for systemic absorption. Many approaches have been carried out for delivery of a medicament across skin barrier to enhance the efficacy. Among them lipid-based colloidal carriers have gained a uni...

Abuse of fentanyl: An emerging problem to face.

Fentanyl is a potent synthetic opioid used as a narcotic analgesic supplement in general and regional anesthesia as well as in management of persistent, severe chronic pain. Alarming epidemiological and forensic medicine reports, accumulated mainly during the last two decades, point to a growing increase in illicit use of fentanyl, mainly in North America and Europe. Toxicological data indicates that fentanyl use is inextricably linked with polydrug use. There are two main sources of fentanyl on the "recrea...

Pharmacovigilance in India: Present Scenario and Future Challenges.

Pharmacovigilance in India was initiated way back in 1986 with a formal adverse drug reaction (ADR) monitoring system, under supervision of the drug controller of India. India joined the World Health Organization (WHO) Programme for International Drug Monitoring in 1998, but was not successful. Later, the National Programme of Pharmacovigilance was launched in 2005, and was renamed as the Pharmacovigilance Programme of India (PvPI) in 2010. In consideration of having a robust pharmacovigilance system in Ind...

Roles of the right temporo-parietal and premotor cortices in self-location and body ownership.

In the rubber hand illusion (RHI), the feeling that a fake hand belongs to oneself can be induced by the simultaneous, congruent touch of the fake visible hand and one's own hidden hand. This condition is also associated with a recalibration of the perceived location of the real hand. A cortical network, including premotor and temporo-parietal areas, has been proposed as the basis of the RHI. However, the causal contribution of these areas to the discrete illusory components remains unclear. We used transcr...

Defining Treatment Effects: A Primer for Non-Statisticians.

It would often be of interest to know the effect of a drug, compared to control, in people who take the drug. However, different people will likely take drug and control. Then comparing takers of drug to takers of control does not yield a drug effect. Drug effects in drug takers can be estimated, but first they must be carefully defined.

Progress in Research Drug Eluting Stents Drug-looding and Drug Release Kinetics.

Drug eluting stents are one of the main devices of coronary intervention, which play a therapeutic role through the combination of medical devices. Drug is an important part of the drug eluting stents. The loading method, the type of carrier, drug and carrier interaction and the preparation process of the drug directly affect the drugs release kinetics characteristics of the device and the final treatment. According to the characteristics of the drug coating, drug coated stents can be divided into non-degra...
