In brief

Pfizer must compensate Parkinson’s patients who became addicted: An Australian court has approved payout deals for patients who developed gambling, sex, and eating addictions after taking cabergoline (marketed as Cabaser or Dostinex) to treat tremors associated with Parkinson’s disease or raised prolactin concentrations. The confidential settlement ends a four year court battle for the patients, some of whom gambled away their life savings after taking the drug and who claimed not to have had any pre-existing gambling problems. Others reported various forms of obsessive behaviour not normal to them, including compulsive eating, spending, hyper-sexuality, and performing repetitive tasks.

The Neuroendocrine Immune Network

This informative publication updates the study of interaction of the nervous and endocrine systems with the immune system in the body. It describes the anatomical basis of these interactions, reviewing the innervation of lymphoid tissue and mast cells. The book discusses the effect of the endocrine system on immune function, including the relation of sex to the immune response. Emphasis is given to opioids, substance P, neurotensin, vasoactive intestinal peptide, somatostatin and cholecystokinin. Also addressed is the immunoregulatory effect of leukotrienes and platelet-activating factors. Scrutinized within are stress as an aspect of neuro-immune interactions, and the central role of the hypothalamus in this context. The book reviews the eye and the gastrointestinal tract with respect to the coordination of the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems in serving these organs. This work is of particular value to those in immunology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, and developmental biology.

Critical Care

In a cohort study (2005–2011) including all patients with first-time ICU admissions in Denmark (n=57,110), we compared patients with and without pre-existing AF and estimated absolute risks and relative risks (RRs) of arterial thromboembolism and death within 30 days and 365 days following admission, using Kaplan-Meier methods and multivariate regression analyses. We analysed the prognostic impact of AF within strata of patient age, sex, coexisting cardiac diseases, and ICU therapies.
