Yellowish dots in the retina: a finding of ocular syphilis?

Here we report the occurrence of pale yellowish perivascular preretinal dots in 12 patients with ocular syphilis. A case series of these patients was examined between March and October 2012 at the Uveitis Sector of Universidade Federal de São Paulo. After diagnostic confirmation of syphilis, fundus photographs and optical coherence tomography (OCT) were performed to verify the localization of the dots, and patients were treated with IV crystalline penicillin for 14 days. The study comprised 11 men (91.6%),...

Yellow laser performance of Dy3+ in co-doped Dy,Tb:LiLuF4

We present laser results obtained from a Dy3+-Tb3+ co-doped LiLuF4 crystal, pumped by a blue emitting InGaN laser diode, aiming for generation of a compact 578 nm source. We exploit the yellow Dy3+ transition F9/24⇒H13/26 to generate yellow laser emission. The lifetime of the lower laser level is quenched, via energy transfer, to co-doped Tb3+ ions in the fluoride crystal. We report the growth technique, spectroscopic study, and room temperature continuous wave laser results in a hemispherical cavity at ...


Yolk-Shell Nanoarchitectures with a Ru-containing Core and a Radially Oriented Mesoporous Silica Shell: Facile Synthesis and Application for One-Pot Biomass Conversion by Combining with Enzyme.

In this paper, we develop a facile strategy to fabricate a yolk-shell structured catalytic system that consists of a Ru-B/mCarbon core encaged within a silica shell with ordered radial mesochannels. A region-selectively etching mechanism for the formation of the yolk-shell nanoarchitectures is proposed based on the stronger adsorption ability and the inertness of the carbon core for etchant than the silica shell. Combining such material with amyloglucosidase can conduct one-pot hydrolysis-hydrogenation of d...

YM500v2: a small RNA sequencing (smRNA-seq) database for human cancer miRNome research.

We previously presented YM500, which is an integrated database for miRNA quantification, isomiR identification, arm switching discovery and novel miRNA prediction from 468 human smRNA-seq datasets. Here in this updated YM500v2 database (, we focus on the cancer miRNome to make the database more disease-orientated. New miRNA-related algorithms developed after YM500 were included in YM500v2, and, more significantly, more than 8000 cancer-related smRNA-seq datasets (including those ...


Yeast Pif1 Accelerates Annealing of Complementary DNA Strands.

Pif1 is a helicase involved in maintenance of nuclear and mitochondrial genomes in eukaryotes. Here we report a new activity of S. cerevisiae Pif1, annealing of complementary DNA strands. We identified preferred substrates for annealing as those that generate a duplex product with a single-stranded overhang relative to a blunt-end duplex. Importantly, we show that Pif1 can anneal DNA in the presence of ATP and Mg(2+). Pif1 mediated annealing also occurs in the presence of single-stranded DNA binding protein...

Young Children's Difficulty with Indirect Speech Acts: Implications for Questioning Child Witnesses.

Prior research suggests that infelicitous choice of questions can significantly underestimate children's actual abilities, independently of suggestiveness. One possibly difficult question type is indirect speech acts such as "Do you know…" questions (DYK, e.g., "Do you know where it happened?"). These questions directly ask if respondents know, while indirectly asking what respondents know. If respondents answer "yes," but fail to elaborate, they are either ignoring or failing to recognize the indirect qu...


Yiqi formula enhances the antitumor effects of erlotinib for treatment of triple-negative breast cancer xenografts.

Yiqi formula (YF), a traditional herbal prescription, has long been used to treat triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) patients. The present study aims to investigate the effects and the related mechanism of YF for treatment of TNBC xenografts. MDA-MB-231 (human TNBC) cells were subcutaneously injected into the second mammary fat pad of 40 female nude mice, which were divided into four groups: control, erlotinib (an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor), YF, and combination (YF ...


Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

While yoga seems to be effective in a number of neuropsychiatric disorders, the evidence of efficacy in multiple sclerosis remains unclear. The aim of this review was to systematically assess and meta-analyze the available data on efficacy and safety of yoga in patients with multiple sclerosis. Medline/PubMed, Scopus, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, PsycINFO, CAM-Quest, CAMbase, and IndMED were searched through March 2014. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of yoga for patients with mul...


Young Age as a Modifying Factor in Sports Concussion Management: What Is the Evidence?

In 2008, the Concussion in Sport Group (CISG) published its third consensus statement and introduced 10 'modifying' factors that were presumed clinically to influence the investigation and management of concussions in sports. Young age was listed as one of the modifying factors. In some cases, these modifiers were thought to be predictive of prolonged or persistent symptoms. These same modifying factors were retained in the fourth iteration of the CISG consensus statement (2013), although mention was made o...


Youth and Young Adult Physical Activity and Body Composition of Young Adult Women: Findings From the Dietary Intervention Study in Children.

This study prospectively investigates associations between youth moderate-to-vigorous-intensity physical activity (MVPA) and body composition in young adult women using data from the Dietary Intervention Study in Children (DISC) and the DISC06 Follow-Up Study. MVPA was assessed by questionnaire on 5 occasions between the ages 8 and 18 years and at age 25-29 years in 215 DISC female participants. Using whole body dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), overall adiposity and body fat distribution were assesse...

YKL-40, a Marker of Cardiovascular Disease and Endothelial Dysfunction, in Kidney Transplant Recipients.

YKL-40 is an inflammatory glycoprotein involved in endothelial dysfunction and expressed in macrophages in the earliest lesion of atherosclerosis. Because cardiovascular mortality is the main cause of death, there are no data on kidney transplant recipients, so the aim of the study was to assess YKL-40 in that population, with particular attention being paid to the relationship with endothelial damage.


YKL-40, a Novel Marker of Cardiovascular Complications, Is Related to Kidney Function in Heart Transplant Recipients.

YKL-40 is an inflammatory glycoprotein involved in endothelial dysfunction and expressed in macrophages in the earliest lesions of atherosclerosis. Elevated serum YKL-40 levels are independently associated with the presence and extent of coronary artery disease and cardiovascular mortality. Because there are no data on heart transplant recipients and because they are prone to cardiovascular complications, the aim of this study was to assess YKL-40 in this population with particular attention to its relation...

Young patient presenting acute coronary syndrome.

The clinical presentation of Kawasaki disease (KD) is variable and clinical implication among adults is rarely important but coronary involvement. Here we report a young patient showing recurrent acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who had a history of high-grade fever and conjunctivitis when he was little. Coronary angiography revealed aneurysmal coronary artery change in this patient. There is no particular consensus on guidelines for treatment for KD in case of coronary aneurysm causing ACS. In this case, we t...

Young Men's Shame about Their Desire for other Men Predicts Risky Sex and Moderates the Knowledge - Self-Efficacy Link.

Nationally, HIV incidence is rising rapidly among young (18-24 years old) men who have sex with men (YMSM). Knowledge of safer sex generally enhances self-efficacy for safer sex, an important predictor of safer-sex behaviors. Recent findings suggest that a strong negative social emotion (i.e., shame) increases YMSM's sexual risk-taking. Unchangeable shame (e.g., desire for other men) might undermine (moderate) the link between knowledge and self-efficacy or between self-efficacy and unprotected anal inter...

YAP/TEAD Co-Activator Regulated Pluripotency and Chemoresistance in Ovarian Cancer Initiated Cells.

Recent evidence suggests that some solid tumors, including ovarian cancer, contain distinct populations of stem cells that are responsible for tumor initiation, growth, chemo-resistance, and recurrence. The Hippo pathway has attracted considerable attention and some investigators have focused on YAP functions for maintaining stemness and cell differentiation. In this study, we successfully isolated the ovarian cancer initiating cells (OCICs) and demonstrated YAP promoted self-renewal of ovarian cancer initi...

Yerba Maté (Illex Paraguariensis) ingestion augments fat oxidation and energy expenditure during exercise at various submaximal intensities.

Ingesting Yerba Maté (YM) has become widely popular for health promotion, obesity prevention and body weight reduction, primarily due its thermogenic effectiveness. However, the YM effects on fat metabolism during exercise, when fat metabolism is already increased several fold, are unknown. The present study investigated whether acute YM ingestion augments fat metabolism parameters of fatty acid oxidation (FAO) and energy expenditure derived from FAO (EEFAO) during exercise with several intensities.


Yoga as Treatment for Insomnia Among Cancer Patients and Survivors: A Systematic Review.

Many cancer patients and survivors, between 15 to 90%, report some form of insomnia or sleep quality impairment during and post-treatment, such as excessive daytime napping, difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, and waking up too early. Insomnia and sleep quality impairment are among the most prevalent and distressing problems reported by cancer patients and survivors, and can be severe enough to increase cancer mortality. Despite the ubiquity of insomnia and sleep quality impairment, they a...

Yin-Yang Regulation of RORγt Protein Complex in Th17 Differentiation.

T helper 17 (Th17) cells have been identified as a distinct T helper lineage that mediates tissue inflammation. Retinoic acid receptor-related orphan receptor (ROR) γt has been identified as the master transcription factor (TF) required for Th17 cell lineage commitment. There is an established consensus that TFs never function alone. Thus, RORγt is considered to form protein complexes that mediate Th17 cell differentiation. Given the importance of RORγt complexes in Th17 cell development and function, he...
