Bed Bug Histamines are Substantial, Persistent in Infested Homes

Posted on Updated on

NC State post-doctoral researcher conducted a Raleigh-based study to compare histamine levels in homes with and without bed bug infestation. The researchers also evaluated the extent to which treatment and time affect those histamine levels.

“Histamine levels in bedbug-infested homes were at least 20 times higher than histamine levels in homes without bed bug.” And these levels didn’t decrease many three months after treating the infested homes with heat and insecticides.”

In humans, histamines are generally released as part of an immune response. They cause inflammation and help allow other immune system chemicals to fight a pathogen or to do cellular repair work. Histamines, though, can have deleterious effects in humans, including rashes when contacted with skin and respiratory problems when inhaled — think of the allergic reactions to certain foods, pollen, mould or other environmental conditions.”



Unusual Acute Myocardial Infarction in Young Male with Hereditary Protein C and S Deficiency

Posted on

We report on a 33 year old man who presented with an acute anterolateral myocardial infarction (MI) caused by thrombotic occlusion of the left anterior coronary artery [LAD] as the initial cardiac manifestation of hereditary protein C and S deficiencies. This case report shows that acute coronary syndrome in the young population could have other causes than atherosclerotic plaque rupture. This is essential knowledge for the clinicians to consider other etiologies in the differential diagnosis such as hypercoagulable state in young patients with myocardial infarctions. Once the diagnosis is established then more appropriate management and prevention of recurrent events is possible. Furthermore, family screening could lead to a prophylactic approach in carriers of this mutation.

College Student Reactions to Drug Prevention Messages

Posted on Updated on

Advertisements through television, radio, billboards, and magazines have been used to convey anti-drug messages since the 1980s. Many of these ads have used graphic images or scare tactics in an attempt to dissuade young people from using, yet more recently, positively toned messages have become increasingly popular. Positively toned messages tend to focus on activities young people can do besides drug use. Ninety-six college undergraduates were asked to rate a series of both scare tactic or negatively toned ads and positively toned ads across three phases. Results showed the negatively toned ads were perceived as significantly more effective during all three phases of the study.
