Injection of neurotoxin is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the United States, and the total number of male patients seeking botulinum has steadily increased over the years. Because of their unique aesthetic goals, expectations, and anatomy, men require differing botulinum toxin doses and techniques. This article provides an evidence-based approach to botulinum toxin in men.

The effects of C. nodosa and U. rigida were also tested against the neurotoxic planktonic dinoflagellate Alexandrium pacificum Litaker sp. nov (former Alexandrium catenella. Co-culture experiments were conducted under controlled laboratory conditions and potential allelopathic effects of the macrophytes on the growth, photosynthesis and toxin production of the targeted dinoflagellates were evaluated.

The neurotoxicity of several volatile anesthetics may contribute to cognitive functional decline, and the impact of intravenous anesthesia on cognitive function requires further exploration. Multimodal analgesia may not outperform traditional postoperative analgesia in preventing postoperative delirium.

Long-term toxicities attributed to tacrolimus, such as nephrotoxicity and neurotoxicity, can limit the long-term success of tacrolimus in preventing allograft rejection. This article emphasizes the current clinical challenges faced when managing LTx recipients with tacrolimus, offers strategies to manage these issues, and highlights the areas that need further research.
... to trace levels of these chemicals causes sub-lethal effects, such as reduced learning and foraging efficiency. Complex behaviours may be particularly vulnerable to the neurotoxic effects of neonicotinoids. Such behaviours may include buzz pollination (sonication), in which pollinators, usually bees, use innate and learned behaviours to generate high-frequency vibrations to release pollen from flowers with specialised anther morphologies.
... In patients with NSCLC treated with SRS for BM, the presence of EGFR mutations is associated with a higher CRR, longer time for distant brain control, and better BPFS. The combination of SRS and TKI in selective patient group can be an effective treatment choice for BM with favorable brain control and little neurotoxicity Keyword: Brain metastases.
