Butalbital in the treatment of headache: history, pharmacology, and efficacy. [2001.11]
Analgesics containing butalbital compounded with aspirin, acetaminophen, and/or caffeine are widely used for the treatment of migraine and tension-type headache. The butalbital-containing compounds are efficacious in placebo-controlled trials among patients with episodic tension-type headaches.Because of concerns about overuse, medication-overuse headache, and withdrawal, their use should be limited and carefully monitored.

Metabolomic Fingerprint After Bariatric Surgery [Completed]
Background: Obesity is associated with multiple diseases. Bariatric surgery is the most
effective therapy for severe obesity that cannot only reduce body weight but also
Objective: The metabolic alterations associated with obesity and respective changes after
bariatric surgery are incompletely understood.
Design: In the longitudinal observational study, the investigator applied a 1H-NMR-based
global, untargeted metabolomics strategy on human serum samples that were collected before
and repeatedly up to one year after distinct bariatric procedures (sleeve gastrectomy,
proximal and distal Roux-en Y gastric bypass; RYGB). For comparison, the investigator also
analyzed serum samples from normal-weight and less obesity obese subjects that were matched
for 1-year postoperative BMI values of the surgical groups.
