Effect on blood pressure of daily lemon ingestion and walking.

Background. Recent studies suggest that the daily intake of lemon (Citrus limon) has a good effect on health, but this has not been confirmed in humans. In our previous studies, it was observed that people who are conscious of their health performed more lemon intake and exercise. An analysis that took this into account was required. Methodology. For 101 middle-aged women in an island area in Hiroshima, Japan, a record of lemon ingestion efforts and the number of steps walked was carried out for five months...

Multiplicative update rules for concurrent nonnegative matrix factorization and maximum margin classification.

The state-of-the-art classification methods which employ nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF) employ two consecutive independent steps. The first one performs data transformation (dimensionality reduction) and the second one classifies the transformed data using classification methods, such as nearest neighbor/centroid or support vector machines (SVMs). In the following, we focus on using NMF factorization followed by SVM classification. Typically, the parameters of these two steps, e.g., the NMF bases/co...

Update on the Guytonian view of hypertension.

Dr Arthur Guyton hypothesized that the capacity of the kidney to excrete sodium ultimately dictates long-term changes in blood pressure. This model has had a profound influence on our understanding of blood pressure regulation. The goal of this article is to review a selection of classic studies and highlight more recent molecular studies supporting or refuting the Guyton model of blood pressure regulation.

Service impact of a change in HIV-1 viral load quantification assay.

Introduction: Due to discontinuation of the Siemens Versant HIV-1 RNA (bDNA) assay in the UK, our laboratory switched to the Roche Cobas Ampliprep/Taqman HIV-1 viral load (VL) assay (Roche) in April 2013. This assay has a lower cut-off of 20 RNA copies/mL (compared with

Metallographic Assessment of Al-12Si High-Pressure Die Casting Escalator Steps.

A microstructural characterization study was performed on high-pressure die cast specimens extracted from escalator steps manufactured from an Al-12 wt.% Si alloy designed for structural applications. Black and white, color light optical imaging and scanning electron microscopy techniques were used to conduct the microstructural analysis. Most regions in the samples studied contained globular-rosette primary α-Al grains surrounded by an Al-Si eutectic aggregate, while primary dendritic α-Al grains were pr...

Serotonin and Sensory Nerves: Meeting in the Cardiovascular System.

Blood pressure regulation by 5-HT has proven to be a complex story to unravel. The work by Cuesta et al., in this issue of Vascular Pharmacology adds another layer of complexity by providing sound in vivo data that 5-HT, through the 5-HT7 receptor, can inhibit the vasodepressor actions of the sensory nervous system and thereby promote blood pressure maintenance. This interaction of 5-HT with the sensory nervous system is inhibitory, whereas 5-HT is understood to be stimulatory in other systems. Moreover, ac...

Long-Term Impact of Battle Injuries; Five-Year Follow-Up of Injured Dutch Servicemen in Afghanistan 2006-2010.

Units deployed to armed conflicts are at high risk for exposure to combat events. Many battle casualties (BCs) have been reported in the recent deployment to Afghanistan. The long-term impact of these combat injuries, at their five-year end point, is currently unknown. To date, no systematic inventory has been performed of an identified group of BCs in comparison to non-injured service members from the same operational theatre.

Comparison of the Gen-Probe Aptima HIV-1 and Abbott HIV-1 qualitative assays with the Roche Amplicor HIV-1 DNA assay for early infant diagnosis using dried blood spots.

The current gold standard for infant diagnosis of HIV-1 is the Roche Amplicor Qualitative DNA assay, but it is being phased out.

In Search of Pathogens: Transcriptome-Based Identification of Viral Sequences from the Pine Processionary Moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa).

Thaumetopoea pityocampa (pine processionary moth) is one of the most important pine pests in the forests of Mediterranean countries, Central Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Apart from causing significant damage to pinewoods, T. pityocampa occurrence is also an issue for public and animal health, as it is responsible for dermatological reactions in humans and animals by contact with its irritating hairs. High throughput sequencing technologies have allowed the fast and cost-effective generation of ...

Total Synthesis of Elastin Peptide Using High Pressure-Liquid Phase Synthesis Assisted by a Soluble Tag Strategy.

A highly aggregating elastin peptide was prepared efficiently using a high pressure-liquid phase synthesis approach assisted by a soluble tag strategy. Two standard syringes were connected to each other to construct a reactor. This simple reactor was used to apply high pressure to the highly viscous reaction mixture thereby maintaining its fluidity. The reactions were completely inhibited due to aggregation when conducted in a standard flask reactor, whereas our high pressure approach accelerated the coupli...

Comparison of four automated serum vitamin B12 assays.

Abstract Background: Diagnosis of vitamin B12 deficiency is generally based on the measurement of serum vitamin B12 levels. However, in selected cases functional indices of vitamin B12, such as methylmalonic acid (MMA) and homocysteine (HCY), are needed. Here we compare the performance of four automated total vitamin B12 assays and also investigate how these assays relate to functional indices of vitamin B12 status. Methods: Total vitamin B12, MMA and HCY were measured in 69 serum samples from routine vitam...

Generation of phase-shifting algorithms with N arbitrarily spaced phase-steps.

Phase-shifting (PS) is an important technique for phase retrieval in interferometry (and three-dimensional profiling by fringe projection) that requires a series of intensity measurements with known phase-steps. Usual PS algorithms are based on the assumption that the phase-steps are evenly spaced. In practice, however, this assumption is often not satisfied exactly, which leads to errors in the recovered phase. In this work we present a systematic algebraic approach for generating general PS algorithms wit...

iMSAT: a novel approach to the development of microsatellite loci using barcoded Illumina libraries.

Illumina sequencing with its high number of reads and low per base pair cost is an attractive technology for development of molecular resources for non-model organisms. While many software packages have been developed to identify short tandem repeats (STRs) from next-generation sequencing data, these methods do not inform the investigator as to whether or not candidate loci are polymorphic in their target populations.
