SMi Event ::: 5th Pharmaceutical Microbiology from 20th – 21st Jan 2016, London

This event is about the developments in the field of  pharmaceutical Microbiology. Pharmaceutical microbiology is crucial to the manufacture and production of drugs, biologics and devices. Without a strong understanding of the process from case studies and learning from mistakes it can be incredibly costly.

Set to take place in Central London on the 20th-21st January 2016 the 5th annual pharmaceutical microbiology will once again be bringing together industry leaders and key figures in the field to discuss and develop a greater understanding of  key issues and regulations.

The Challenge of a “Functional Cure” for AIDS by Gene Modified HSCT Therapy is the article from the journal Current Stem Cell Research & Therapy , 10(6): 492-498,

Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), an infectious disease which is difficult to be cured, is regularly and effectively treated with anti-retroviral therapy in clinic. When considering about the defects of antiretroviral therapy (ART), patients need a new way to cure AIDS. With the development of genetic engineering technology and humanized mouse models, a new way has been found to achieve a “functional cure” for AIDS.

Food Addiction Spectrum: A Theoretical Model from Normality to Eating and Overeating Disorders 

Author(s): Armando Piccinni, Donatella Marazziti, Federica Vanelli, Caterina Franceschini, Stefano Baroni, Davide Costanzo, Ivan Mirko Cremone, Antonello Veltri and Liliana Dell’Osso 

Abstract: The authors comment on the recently proposed food addiction spectrum that represents a theoretical model to understand the continuum between several conditions ranging from normality to pathological states, including eating disorders and obesity, as well as why some individuals show a peculiar attachment to food that can become an addiction. Further, they review the possible neurobiological underpinnings of these conditions that include dopaminergic neurotransmission and circuits that have long been implicated in drug addiction. The aim of this article is also that at stimulating a debate regarding the possible model of a food (or eating) addiction spectrum that may be helpful towards the search of novel therapeutic approaches to different pathological states related to disturbed feeding or overeating.

Article: “An Overview of the Modulatory Effects of Oleic Acid in Health and Disease”

Evidences in the last years have showed the effects of oleic acid (OA) in human health and disease. Olive oil, rich in oleic acid, is supposed to present modulatory effects in wide physiological functions, while some studies also suggest a beneficial effect on cancer, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, besides its ability to facilitate wound healing.
