Measurement properties of the upright motor control test in adults with subacute stroke.

Previous studies have distilled the Upright Motor Control Test Knee Extension and Knee Flexion subscales (UMCT-KE and UMCT-KF, respectively) from the original 6-item instrument and examined these as stand-alone rapid tests of voluntary movement control in the standing position. Systematic review evidence suggests that the UMCT-KE and UMCT-KF may have value in predicting walking ability after strok...

Strong sex bias in elite control of paediatric HIV infection.

Reports of posttreatment control following antiretroviral therapy (ART) have prompted the question of how common immune control of HIV infection is in the absence of ART. In contrast to adult infection, where elite controllers have been very well characterized and constitute approximately 0.5% of infections, very few data exist to address this question in paediatric infection.

Effects of short-term cash and food incentives on food insecurity and nutrition among HIV-infected adults in Tanzania: a randomized trial.

Food insecurity (FI) impedes antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence. We previously demonstrated that short-term cash and food incentives increased ART possession and retention in HIV services in Tanzania. To elucidate potential pathways that led to these achievements, we examined whether incentives also improved FI.

This study inquires the relationship between Campylobacter jejuni isolated from broiler meat carcasses (n=97) and human clinical samples (n=72) in Belgium, from 2011 to 2013.

Pleistocene dental calculus: Recovering information on Paleolithic food items, medicines, paleoenvironment and microbes.

Dental calculus is now widely used to recover information on items ingested in the past. It is particularly valuable in the earlier Paleolithic, where recovered data may represent the only evidence for plant use. Several recovery methods are used and each one produces different results. Biomolecular markers and genetic material recovered from dental calculus is providing new data on identifiable d...

Hypophagic effects of insulin is mediated via NPY1/NPY2 receptors in broiler cockerels.

Neuropeptide Y (NPY) plays a mediatory role on cerebral insulin function in maintaining energy balance. The current study was deigned to determine the role of insulin in food intake and its interaction with NPY receptors in 8 experiments of broiler cockerels,(each with 4 treatment groups except 8). Chickens received control solution, 2.5, 5, and 10 ng of insulin in experiment 1 and control solutio...

Selenium levels in whole blood - The borderline low analysis.

Selenium is a very important micronutrient. Food is the major source for selenium uptake and the average blood levels is seen to be highly affected by dietary habits as selenium levels in food naturally depend on the kind of soil they are grown upon and in processed foods its levels depend on fortification. Deficiency of this vital nutriment needs to be assessed to understand deficiency prevalence...


Recent studies have suggested that removing foods from the diet to manage atopic dermatitis (AD), based on positive allergy tests, may lead to immediate allergic reactions on reintroduction of that food.

Latent inhibition was assessed in a within-subject procedure with auditory ...

Confession and self-control: A prelude to repentance or relapse?

Confessions are commonplace. Even when embarrassing or otherwise damaging, we seem intrinsically motivated to open up to others and confess mistakes we have made. Although there may be many reasons one might choose to disclose one's "sins," very little is known about what confession actually does, particularly concerning its effect on future behavior. This work examines confession in the context o...
