Classes of PBDEs Chemical structure of PBDEs The family of PBDEs consists of 209 possible substances, which are called congeners (PBDE = C12H(10−*x*)Br*x*O (*x* = 1, 2, ..., 10 = *m* + *n*)). The number of isomers for mono-, di-, tri-, tetra-, penta-, hexa-, hepta-, octa-, nona-, and decabromodiphenyl ethers are 3, 12, 24, 42, 46, 42, 24, 12, 3 and 1, respectively. In the United States, PBDEs are marketed with the trade names DE-60F, DE-61, DE-62, and DE-71 applied to pentaBDE mixtures, DE-79 applied to octaBDE mixtures, and DE 83R and Saytex 102E applied to decaBDE mixtures...mais »

Enough With the Coffee Research and Other Distractions John Mandrola, MD DISCLOSURES August 02, 2017 After 2 decades of practicing medicine, I have come to believe that distraction is one of the clinician's greatest foes. We miss important stuff because nonsense steals our full attention. Having spent the past few years reviewing and reporting on studies, I think distraction also impedes medical progress. The new phenomenon of worship of page views and clickability exacerbates the problem of distracting wasteful research. Good studies (signal) are droned out by the observational nons...mais »

Stem cells may be the key to staying strong in old ageJune 6, 2017 [image: Stem cells may be the key to staying strong in old age] Credit: University of Rochester University of Rochester Medical Center researchers have discovered that loss of muscle stem cells is the main driving force behind muscle decline in old age in mice. Their finding challenges the current prevailing theory that age-related muscle decline is primarily caused by loss of motor neurons. Study authors hope to develop a drug or therapy that can slow muscle stem cell loss and muscle decline in the future.
