Prepare for winter weather - The Sabetha Herald Inc.

Winter Weather Awareness Day in Kansas will be Thursday, Nov. 15. That day would be an ideal time for Kansans to take stock of their emergency supplies and review their home emergency plan.

A home emergency supply kit should include enough nonperishable food and water for each person to survive for a minimum of seven days, a safe alternate heat source, blankets, flashlights and batteries, a battery-operated weather radio, essential medicines and other items needed for health and comfort should the power go out.

Vehicles should be equipped with emergency kits, too, particularly if you are planning to travel long distances. These kits should include weather appropriate clothing; bottled water for everyone; nonperishable, high-energy snack items; flashlights and batteries; a battery-operated radio; blankets; a compact snow shovel; extra medications; signal flares and other emergency supplies to allow you to survive until help can arrive. It is also advisable to fill your gas tank before you start on a journey, check engine fluid levels and tire pressure, and make sure cell phones are fully charged.

Emergency plans and preparations should also include family pets. During winter storms, bring outdoor pets inside, if possible, or ensure that they have a draft-free enclosure with straw type bedding that is large enough to sit and lie down, but small enough to hold their body heat if they must remain outside. Always make sure that your pets have access to food and non-frozen water.

Emergency solution: Purdue technology opens the door for improved rescue kits for people with diabetes, hypoglycemia - Purdue News Service (press release)

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Being with someone who has diabetes and needs immediate care to avoid a coma can be a frightening situation. Even worse, current products and injection kits to help in those emergencies can be complicated to use.

Now Purdue University researchers are working on a solution similar to common EpiPen devices that could help diabetic patients and others with hypoglycemia.

Elizabeth Topp, who led the research team, has personal experience with how the technology developed at Purdue could improve lives. Her younger brother was a principal in Delaware and had a young student volleyball player with diabetes who needed to have a nurse travel with her to games in case she needed an injection of glucagon, which is used to help raise sugar levels.

“Our technology will hopefully one day be able to help that student and millions of other people and their families impacted by hypoglycemia,” said Topp, a professor of industrial and physical pharmacy . “We want an easier alternative to the current rescue kits that require someone to mix components and then figure out how to properly inject the glucagon.”

The difficulty in dealing with the glucagon rescue kits also means most people choose to go to the hospital for treatment, when it could be possible to give a simple injection at home.

Topp and the other researchers faced a challenge when developing their technology: Glucagon is poorly soluble and unstable in solution. They solved this challenge by using peptide derivatives of glucagon, which have shown to be soluble and stable in solution.

The derivatives created at Purdue are quickly re-converted to glucagon after injection by enzymes in the body. This process creates an easier and quicker alternative to delivering glucagon to a person in need.

Other members of the research team include Markus Lill, a Purdue associate professor of medicinal chemistry and molecular pharmacology ; Shenbaga Moorthy Balakrishnan, a former Purdue research scientist; and Hamed Ghomi, one of Lill’s former graduate students.

“It’s incredible to think that four researchers from places all across the globe were able to come together for this potentially life-changing discovery,” Topp said. “Purdue is a place that makes such collaboration possible.”

Their work aligns with Purdue's Giant Leaps celebration, acknowledging the university’s global advancements in health as part of Purdue’s 150th anniversary. This is one of the four themes of the yearlong celebration’s Ideas Festival , designed to showcase Purdue as an intellectual center solving real-world issues.

Topp is working with the operates one of the most comprehensive technology transfer programs among leading research universities in the U.S. Services provided by this office support the economic development initiatives of Purdue University and benefit the university's academic activities. The office is managed by the Purdue Research Foundation, which received the 2016 Innovation and Economic Prosperity Universities Award for Innovation from the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities.
