Occupational Exposure to Secondhand Cannabis Smoke Among Law Enforcement Officers Providing Security at Outdoor Concert Events.

Douglas M Wiegand, Mark M Methner, George Reed Grimes, James R Couch, Lanqing Wang, Li Zhang, Benjamin C Blount,

OBJECTIVES:Numerous states within the USA have legalized cannabis for medical or non-medical (adult/recreational) use. With the increased availability and use of cannabis, occupational and environmental exposures to secondhand cannabis smoke (SHCS) raise concerns over whether non-users may be at risk for a 'contact high', impaired neurocognitive function, harm from irritants ...

James R Couch, George Reed Grimes, Brett J Green, Douglas M Wiegand, Bradley King, Mark M Methner,

Since 2004, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has received 10 cannabis-related health hazard evaluation (HHE) investigation requests from law enforcement agencies (n = 5), state-approved cannabis grow operations (n = 4), and a coroner's office (n = 1). Earlier requests concerned potential illicit drug exposures (including ... Read more >>

Kara S Hughan, Stacy Gelhaus Wendell, Meghan Delmastro-Greenwood, Nicole Helbling, Catherine Corey, Landon Bellavia, Gopal Potti, George Grimes, Bret Goodpaster, Daniel B Kim-Shapiro, Sruti Shiva, Bruce A Freeman, Mark T Gladwin,

Dietary NO3- (nitrate) and NO2- (nitrite) support ˙NO (nitric oxide) generation and downstream vascular signaling responses. These nitrogen oxides also generate secondary nitrosating and nitrating species that react with low molecular weight thiols, heme centers, proteins, and unsaturated fatty acids. To explore the kinetics of NO3-and NO2-metabolism and the impact ... Read more >>

Nitrite infusion in humans and nonhuman primates: endocrine effects, pharmacokinetics, and tolerance formation.

André Dejam, Christian J Hunter, Carole Tremonti, Ryszard M Pluta, Yuen Yi Hon, George Grimes, Kristine Partovi, Mildred M Pelletier, Edward H Oldfield, Richard O Cannon, Alan N Schechter, Mark T Gladwin,

BACKGROUND: The recent discovery that nitrite is an intrinsic vasodilator and signaling molecule at near-physiological concentrations has raised the possibility that nitrite contributes to hypoxic vasodilation and to the bioactivity of nitroglycerin and mediates the cardiovascular protective effects of nitrate in the Mediterranean diet. However, important questions of potency, kinetics, ... Read more >>

Injectable formulation of disodium 1-[2-(carboxylato)pyrrolidin-1-yl]diazen-1-ium-1,2-diolate (PROLI/NO), an ultrafast nitric oxide donor prodrug.

David J Waterhouse, Joseph E Saavedra, Keith M Davies, Michael L Citro, Xia Xu, Douglas A Powell, George J Grimes, Gopal K Potti, Larry K Keefer,

PROLI/NO is an agent of structure XN(O)==NONa (X = L-prolyl) whose 2-s half-life for nitric oxide (NO) release at physiological pH makes it an excellent prodrug for localizing NO's therapeutic effects at the site of application, but a difficult one to formulate and certify as pure. Despite its extraordinary thermal ... Read more >>
