Double-blind evaluation of the efficacy and safety of temazepam in outpatients with insomnia

British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology

1 The efficacy and safety of temazepam 30 mg, compared with glutethimide 500 mg and placebo, were evaluated in double-blind conditions in a 4-day study in 75 outpatients with a history of insomnia. 2 Temazepam and glutethimide were rated by the patients as effective and significantly superior to placebo for general quality of sleep, time required to fall asleep, frequency of nocturnal and early morning awakenings, and duration of sleep. 3 Residual effects reported for temazepam and glutethimide immediately after awakening and during the day were similar to or less than those reported for placebo.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
