Yellow nail syndrome (YNS) is an uncommon condition characterized by nail changes, lymphedema, in addition to pulmonary disorders and pleural effusion. Pericarditis and non-cardiac disorders can evolve with pericardial effusions including autoimmune conditions, hypothyroidism, malignancies, tuberculosis, and uremia. A 72-year-old Brazilian woman under treatment for arterial hypertension and hypothyroidism was admitted with pericarditis and pericardial effusion concomitant with yellow nail syndrome. She deni...
With the new 6-dye AmpFISTR(®) Yfiler(®) Plus amplification kit (Thermo Fisher Scientific, Waltham, MA, USA) a set of 25 Y-chromosomal short tandem repeat loci (Y-STRs), including seven rapidly mutating Y-STRs (RM Y-STRs), is now available for forensic DNA typing. In this study we present our validation data for the AmpFISTR(®) Yfiler(®) Plus amplification kit and show the results of Y-chromosomal typing of 425 unrelated male individuals from two Austrian populations (Salzburg and Upper Austria) with th...
Youth f-act teams have been set up for the purpose of providing the care needed by young people suspected of having complex psychiatric problems. AIM: To obtain insight into the problems of this population at the beginning and at the end of treatment provided by the youth f-act team in South Limburg. METHOD: We based our study on a cohort of 68 patients who met the criteria for f-act during the period from January 2013 up to and including October 2014. We evaluated the effect of f-act treatment of 41 patien...
The risk of lymph node positivity (LN+) in rectal cancer is a parameter that impacts therapeutic recommendations. We aimed to quantify the effect of younger age on LN+ in rectal cancer.
Reversible lysine acetylation is one of the most important protein posttranslational modifications that plays essential roles in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. However, only a few lysine deacetylases (KDACs) have been identified in prokaryotes, perhaps in part due to their limited sequence homology. Herein, we developed a 'clip-chip' strategy to enable unbiased, activity-based discovery of novel KDACs in the Escherichia coli proteome. In-depth biochemical characterization confirmed that YcgC is a serine h...
The Years of Life Lost (YLL) due to cancer can be a more illustrative index to promote preventive and therapeutic services, this study aimed to investigate the childhood cancer mortality and its trend over the past few years in Yazd to provide planners with baseline data.
This study evaluated fertility-related experiences of young adult female cancer survivors (18-39 years). Data were from a retrospective, cross-sectional survey. Women were more likely to undergo pre-treatment fertility preservation (FP) if they received fertility counseling (by a fertility nurse specialist, reproductive endocrinologist, or gynecologist). Compared with women who underwent FP, those who did not had greater decision regret (DR) after treatment (p
Allergic rhinitis (AR) is an inflammatory disease with a hypersensitivity response to environmental stimulus. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of Yiqi Wenyang Fang (YWF) on AR and investigate the underlying mechanism. A total of 48 female Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into six groups (normal control, model control, YWF at low dose, YWF at median dose, YWF at high dose, and loratadine). Rats were injected with antigen for sensitization. Then, rats in the YWF groups were treated wi...
The traditional Japanese medicine yokukansan has an anxiolytic effect, which occurs after repeated administration. In this study, to investigate the underlying mechanisms, we examined the effects of repeated yokukansan administration on serotonin 1A (5-HT1A) receptor density and affinity and its expression at both mRNA and protein levels in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) of socially isolated mice. Moreover, we examined the effects of yokukansan on a 5-HT1A receptor-mediated behavioral response. Male mice were ...
In recent years, a growing number of young people who experience illness tend to blog about it. In this paper, we question whether and how illness blogs illustrate the intercommunicative aspect of blogging by bringing forth both the literary concept of the implied reader and the sociological concepts of empowerment and agency in the analysis. We argue that young people blogging about serious illness demonstrate the inherent intercommunicative potential of blogging. We also argue that youth blogging about se...
The circulating tumor cell (CTC) field is rapidly advancing with the advent of continuously improving technologies for enriching these rare neoplastic cells from blood. CTC enumeration provides prognostic information, and CTC characterization has the potential to provide more useful information for the clinical decision-making process in this era of personalized medicine and targeted therapeutics. Proof-of-principle studies have shown that CTC samples can be characterized with a variety of techniques in the...
Young investigator challenge: Cadherin-17 and SATB2 in cytology specimens: Do these new immunostains help in differentiating metastatic colorectal adenocarcinoma from adenocarcinomas of other origins?
Cadherin-17 (intestinal peptide-associated transporter) and SATB2 (SATB homeobox 2) immunoexpression has recently been described in surgical pathology to have value in establishing the colorectal origin of metastatic adenocarcinoma. However, to the authors' knowledge, the role of these markers in metastatic colorectal adenocarcinoma (MCA) in cytology has not been addressed to date. In the current study, the authors evaluated the contribution of cadherin-17 and SATB2 to the diagnosis of MCA in cytology speci...
Yoga has been shown to improve outcomes in patients with asthma but has not been investigated in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients.
Pex1 and Pex6 are two AAA-ATPases that play a crucial role in peroxisome biogenesis. We have characterized the ultrastructure of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae peroxisome-deficient mutants pex1 and pex6 by various high-resolution electron microscopy techniques. We observed that the cells contained peroxisomal membrane remnants, which in ultrathin cross sections generally appeared as double membrane rings. Electron tomography revealed that these structures consisted of one continuous membrane, representing an ...
Carbon supply influences nitrogen transformation in ecosystems, but the longer-term effects of buried organic carbon on nitrogen processing in stream sediments have been rarely addressed. The effects of buried particulate organic carbon (red maple leaves) on net nitrogen retention, net dissolved organic carbon (DOC) production, and pore water dissolved oxygen concentration were assessed for 1 yr in a nitrogen-rich gaining stream (Emmons Creek, WI). Retention of nitrate and total dissolved nitrogen (TDN) and...
An 81-year-old gentleman with chronic kidney disease presented with pyrexia and a new systolic cardiac murmur. Investigations revealed infective aortitis of a pre-existing aortic aneurysm graft repair. Peripheral blood cultures were positive for Yersinia pseudotuberculosis and the patient was successfully treated with an extended course of antibiotics. Abdominal imaging also revealed progressive bilateral polycystic kidney disease with associated diverticular disease, which was postulated as the source of t...
