New Issue :: Current Organic Chemistry 21, Issue 2

Current Organic Chemistry aims to provide in-depth reviews on the current progress in the fields of asymmetric synthesis, organo-metallic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, heterocyclic chemistry, natural product chemistry and analytical methods in organic chemistry. The frontier reviews provide the current state of knowledge in these fields and are written by chosen experts who are internationally known for their eminent research contributions. The Journal also accepts high quality research papers, highlights and letters besides thematic issues in these fields. Current Organic Chemistry should prove to be of great interest to organic chemists in academia and industry who wish to keep abreast with recent developments in key fields of organic chemistry.

Article by Disease-“Asthma COPD Overlap Syndrome: An Approach to A Real -World Endotype in Obstructive Lung Disease?”

Article by Disease on “Respiratory Diseases”


Background: Although some patients with obstructive lung disease (OLD) have features of both asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the term “asthma-COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS)” was coined only relatively recently. However, there are gaps in our knowledge of the clinical features, pathogenesis, prognosis, and management of ACOS patients.

Objectives: To review the literature on ACOS to determine the extent to which the clinical features, pathologic mechanisms, clinical outcomes, and current therapeutic approaches for ACOS differ from those in patients with asthma alone or COPD alone.

Methods: PUBMED searches were conducted to review the demographic and clinical features, comorbidities, lung imaging characteristics, prognoses, pathologic mechanisms, and current therapeutic approaches for patients with ACOS versus asthma alone or COPD alone.

Results: Criteria that are used to diagnose ACOS vary considerably. Overall, ACOS patients have higher symptom burdens (especially dyspnea), poorer quality of life scores, and more frequent and severe exacerbations than patients with COPD alone or asthma alone. However, there are conflicting reports on the prognosis of ACOS patients. Imaging studies indicate that ACOS is predominantly an airway disease. ACOS has been linked to the presence of Th2-type immune responses in COPD airways and Th1-type immune responses in asthmatic airways. Current therapeutic options for ACOS patients include inhaled corticosteroids and bronchodilators. However, randomized clinical trials have not yet been conducted to optimize the management of ACOS patients.

Conclusion: ACOS patients have clinical features that are now well defined, but additional studies are needed to provide novel insights into ACOS pathogenesis, and to optimize the treatment of these patients.

Balıkesir Üniversitesi Merkez Kütüphane (Balikesir University Central Library), Turkey

The roots of Balikesir University date back to Karesi Teacher Training School, which was established in 1910.

These establishments changed their names and status and they were made to continue their educational facilities under the name of Uludag University in 1982 with the decree law numbered 41. Necati Education Institute became a four-year “High Teacher Training School” in 1981 and then in 1982, this institution was renamed Necatibey Education Faculty.

Psychotherapy Needs Modernizing!

Treating young people with behavioral disorders can be pretty difficult, especially if they are suffering with complex issues. Therapists have been keeping busy in counseling through discussions and verbal engagements with their patients but it has mostly proved to be a hard job. Counseling happens to be time-consuming, full of obstacles and with snail-paced outcomes. Primarily, it is due to the reason that verbal conversations require attention, understanding, learning and retention from the receivers, who already have a behavioral problem to deal with.


Psychologists and clinicians need to adapt and add novel techniques to achieve better results in treating their patients. They should utilize ideas similar to the ones widely used in classrooms, seminars and other professional information media. This means they need to include visual aids with verbal communications like boards, easels, handouts, and most appropriately, computer systems to improve their usual psychotherapies. People differ in their types of learning – some may be better listeners, some readers, some may retain better from visuals and some may prefer performing things to learn. This general concept applies to adolescents with behavioral problems as well, and therefore, using computer-facilitated techniques with counseling is expected to make gigantic change in psychotherapies.

Adolescent Psychiatry journal has a research paper encompassing research on these ideas: Computer-facilitated Therapeutic Dialogue with Adolescents with Behavior Disorders

New Issue:: Protein & Peptide Letters 23, Issue 12

Protein & Peptide Letters publishes letters, original research papers, mini-reviews and guest edited issues in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, advances in recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, and drug design. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallization and preliminary structure determination of biologically important proteins are considered only if they include significant new approaches or deal with proteins of immediate importance, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins. Purely theoretical/review papers should provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function. Manuscripts describing computational work should include some experimental data to provide confirmation of the results of calculations.
