Information on folate and vitamin B12 deficiency rates in Guatemala is essential to evaluate the current fortification program. The objectives of this study were to describe the prevalence of folate and vitamin B12 deficiencies among women of childbearing age (WCBA) in Guatemala and to identify vulnerable populations at greater risk for nutrient deficiency.


Fear-avoidance behavior, not walking endurance, predicts the community reintegration of community-dwelling stroke survivors.

To examine the contribution of walking endurance, subjective balance confidence and fear avoidance behavior (FAB) to community reintegration among community-dwelling stroke survivors.


Freeze dried plasma and fresh red blood cells for civilian prehospital hemorrhagic shock resuscitation.

The last decade of military trauma care has emphasized the role of blood products in the resuscitation of hemorrhaging patients. Damage-control resuscitation advocates decreased crystalloid use and reintroduces blood components as primary resuscitative fluids. The systematic use of blood products have been described in military settings, but reports describing the use of freeze dried plasma (FDP) or red blood cells (RBCs) in civilian prehospital care are few. We describe our preliminary results after implem...


Fresh frozen plasma and spray-dried plasma mitigate pulmonary vascular permeability and inflammation in hemorrhagic shock.

In retrospective and prospective observational studies, fresh frozen plasma (FFP) has been associated with a survival benefit in massively transfused trauma patients. A dry plasma product, such as spray-dried plasma (SDP), offers logistical advantages over FFP. Recent studies on FFP have demonstrated that FFP modulates systemic vascular stability and inflammation. The effect of SDP on these measures has not been previously examined. This study compares SDP with FFP using in vitro assays of endothelial funct...


Fully automated production of sodium (18)Ffluoride on AllInOne and miniAllInOne synthesizers.

A fully automated production of the imaging agent sodium [(18)F]fluoride ([(18)F]NaF) on two different modules commercialized by Trasis®, the AllInOne and the miniAllInOne, is reported. Both modules allow to prepare [(18)F]NaF in good radiochemical yield (around 97%) in less than 4min with the same specifications. Quality control of [(18)F]NaF produced by this way was performed according to the US and European Pharmacopeia monograph requirements.


First detection of Sarcoptes scabiei from domesticated pig (Sus scrofa) and genetic characterization of S. scabiei from pet, farm and wild hosts in Israel.

In this report we describe for the first time the detection of Sarcoptes scabiei type suis mites on domestic pigs in Israel and examine its genetic variation compared with S. sabiei from other hosts. Microscopic examination of skin samples from S. scabiei-infested pigs (Sus scrofa domesticus) revealed all developmental stages of S. scabiei. To detect genetic differences between S. scabiei from different hosts, samples obtained from pig, rabbits (Orictolagus cuniculus), fox (Vulpes vulpes), jackal (Canis aur...


Fipronil should not be categorized as a "systemic insecticide": a reply to Gibbons et al. (2015).


Further validation of a marijuana purchase task.

A valid measure of the relative economic value of marijuana is needed to characterize individual variation in the drug's reinforcing value and inform evolving national marijuana policy. Relative drug value (demand) can be measured via purchase tasks, and demand for alcohol and cigarettes has been associated with craving, dependence, and treatment response. This study examined marijuana demand with a marijuana purchase task (MPT).


Failure mode and effects analysis of medication adherence in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia.

Poor adherence to ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitors (ABL TKIs) is associated with reduced treatment efficacy and increased healthcare costs. To examine the hazards associated with poor adherence, we implemented failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA).


Fluorescent probe for turn-on sensing of l-cysteine by ensemble of AuNCs and polymer protected AuNPs.

A new fluorescent probe based on ensemble of gold nanoclusters (AuNCs) and polymer protected gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) for turn-on sensing of l-cysteine was designed and prepared. The AuNCs were protected by bovine serum albumin and had strong fluorescence. The polymer protected AuNPs were synthesized by a facile in situ strategy at room temperature and could quench the fluorescence of AuNCs due to the Förster resonance energy transfer. Interestingly, it has been observed that the quenched fluorescence of...


False positive and false negative diagnoses of prostate cancer at multi-parametric prostate MRI in active surveillance.

MP-MRI is a critical component in active surveillance (AS) of prostate cancer (PCa) because of a high negative predictive value for clinically significant tumours. This review illustrates pitfalls of MP-MRI and how to recognise and avoid them. The anterior fibromuscular stroma and central zone are low signal on T2W-MRI/apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC), resembling PCa. Location, progressive enhancement and low signal on b ≥1000 mm²/s echo-planar images (EPI) are differentiating features. BPH can mi...


Fungal demethylation of Kraft lignin.

Demethylation of industrial lignin has been for long coveted as a pathway to the production of an abundant natural substitute for fossil-oil derived phenol. In an attempt to possibly identify a novel Kraft lignin-demethylating enzyme, we surveyed a collection of fungi by using selected ion flow tube-mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS). This method readily identifies methanol resulting from lignin demethylation activity. Absidia cylindrospora, and unidentified Cylindrocladium sp. and Aspergillus sp. were shown to me...


Feasibility, acceptability, and adherence of two educational programs for care staff concerning nursing home patients' fecal incontinence: a pilot study preceding a cluster-randomized controlled trial.

Fecal incontinence has a high prevalence in the nursing home population which cannot be explained by co-morbidity or anatomic and physiological changes of aging alone. Our hypothesis is that fecal incontinence can be prevented, cured, or ameliorated by offering care staff knowledge of best practice. However, it is not clear which educational model is most effective. To assess the effect of two educational programs for care staff, we planned a three armed cluster-randomized controlled trial. There is a lack ...

Fungal Unspecific Peroxygenases: Heme-Thiolate Proteins That Combine Peroxidase and Cytochrome P450 Properties.

Eleven years ago, a secreted heme-thiolate peroxidase with promiscuity for oxygen transfer reactions was discovered in the basidiomycetous fungus, Agrocybe aegerita. The enzyme turned out to be a functional mono-peroxygenase that transferred an oxygen atom from hydrogen peroxide to diverse organic substrates (aromatics, heterocycles, linear and cyclic alkanes/alkenes, fatty acids, etc.). Later similar enzymes were found in other mushroom genera such as Coprinellus and Marasmius. Approximately one thousand p...


Free and cued memory in relation to biomarker-defined Abnormalities in clinically normal older Adults and those at risk for Alzheimer's disease.

Furthering our understanding of the relationship between amyloidosis (Aβ), neurodegeneration (ND), and cognition is imperative for early identification and early intervention of Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the subtle cognitive decline differentially associated with each biomarker-defined stage of preclinical AD has yet to be fully characterized. Recent work indicates that different components of memory performance (free and cued recall) may be differentially specific to memory decline in prodromal A...

Facilitated Tucking to Reduce Pain in Neonates: Evidence for Best Practice.

Increasing survival rates of preterm infants and a greater understanding of the long-term consequences of early exposure to pain have generated a greater need for nonpharmacologic pain management strategies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) setting. Facilitated tucking supports the preterm infant and is a valuable strategy to manage neonatal pain. Alternative nonpharmacologic approaches to pain management in neonates include nonnutritive sucking and kangaroo care.
