re: Nothing like hand feeding local wildlife - Elephino
I suspect many people that own snakes feed them by hand. I feed my Miami phase corn snake by hand every week. I hold mice (dead) by the tail. He strikes at it then wraps it before eating it whole....

re: US National Whitewater Center in Charlotte - Elephino
Not really a freak occurance. Every incident qualifies as rare, but the article says it was found in nearly every sample taken. What's more rare is the girl's age (18). Children are at a greater risk because the amoeba has to penetrate the cribriform plate and migrate along the olfactory nerve to ge...

re: Any of you Workout Warriors know about SARMS? - Elephino
I've tried to keep from posting in this thread, but your ignorance keeps pulling me in. I can guarantee I know more about this topic than you. I was there when GTx was founded. Duane Miller (the main medicinal chemist who developed many of these illegally used sarms) was my department chair and serv...

re: OT Physicians/Scientists - Can Extra Virgin Olive Oil Reduce Inflammation? - Elephino
I teach a course on nutriceuticals, herbals, supplements, etc. Of the resources I have access to, this is what is said about olive oil and inflammation - "Olive oil might also have anti-inflammatory effects by decreasing pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acid concentrations and increasing anti-inf...

re: 157 pregnant women in the US have tested positive for Zika - Elephino
I think Inovio is actually in the lead currently. They have a working version of a vaccine that has proven effective in mice. They are looking at moving into phase I trials very soon. A couple of big pharma operations (AZ and GSK) have mentioned a possible interest in vaccine development, but have...

re: So if Republicans are about Protecting the Fetus Above All Else... - Elephino
Didn't the Senate then approve a bipartisan bill for 1.1 billion? Just because the president doesn't get every dollar he requests, we're supposed to throw a tantrum and scream about the lack of concern? There is already a vaccine that has proven effective in mice, which is going to advance to Phas...

re: These are the LA state reps who voted against medical marijuana - Elephino
Too many responses to reply to all, so I'll just start here. Dronabinol is the oral pill form (brand is Marinol). It is generic and there are two manufacturers of the generic. I am not aware of a reported shortage, though it does not have approved indication for all of the things claimed in this ...

re: Overdosing on Immodium AD is a thing now - Elephino
It produces opiate-like toxicity because it targets mu opioid receptors. Structurally, it is a combination of meperidine and methadone. It is generally considered to not have CNS activity because it poor dissolution, roughly 40% bioavailability, and is a strong substrate for efflux (gets pumped ou...

re: Was Day-to-day American life in 1996 closer to 2016 or 1976? - Elephino
I remember having internet in Middleton for doing some research (porn surfing), but sitting on the payphone at the Union to register for classes. I had also just gotten out of the Navy. I remember only one guy having a cell phone, but there was an entire bank of payphones outside our barracks that...

re: Worst behavior you've seen at a wedding or funeral? - Elephino
My wife is a funeral director/embalmer, so I've heard some good ones. I think the best was a man that had been married 3 times, plus had a current mistress (still married to 3rd wife), had a very "lively" wake. A son from the first marriage (30-something in age) hated the second wife (his 1st step...

re: Does Ibuprofen truly expire? - Elephino
Ibuprofen has been used as sort of a model drug to determine forced degradation in a laboratory setting to establish protocols for determining the stability of other drugs. Certainly light would speed the process of the oxidative cleavage of the carboxylic acid, but ibuprofen has produced degradati...

re: Does Ibuprofen truly expire? - Elephino
Yes, in this case, ibuprofen does truly expire. Some drugs are shelf stable for years, but ibuprofen is prone to photochemical oxidation. The major degradation product is 4-isobutylacetophenone, but as many 7 degradation products have been reported in tablets 12 months past the original expiration...

re: Coconut oil for memory - Elephino
It's the basis for the "medical food" Axona (FDA classification), which is promoted as an add-on/alternative treatment for Alzheimer's. The main ingredient is caprylic triglyceride (part of the supposed active ingredient in coconut oil). The mechanism isn't necessarily related to the medium chain f...
