A 28-day Pain Squad+ pilot was conducted with 40 adolescents with cancer to evaluate the feasibility of implementing the app in a future clinical tria...
While the literature regarding physicians' childbearing experiences is growing, there are no studies documenting those of anesthesiologists. We surveyed a convenience sample of 72 female anesthesiologists to obtain pilot data. Sixty-six women completed the survey (91.7% response rate), reporting 113 total births from before 1990 to present. Of all birth experiences, proportions of respondents reporting parental leave, lactation facilities, and lactation duration as adequate were 52.3%, 45.2%, and 58.3%, res...
1-Penten-3-one with its fresh and pungent smell at a very low odor threshold of 0.94 µg/L water has been characterized as impact aroma compound in many foods, such as grapefruit, orange juice, black tea, olive oil, or tomatoes. While its importance to the fresh sensation of unstored NFC orange juice was recently confirmed by aroma recombinates, a total loss was determined already after 4 weeks in NFC orange juice stored at 0 °C. Until now, the degradation pathway of this compound has not been clarified. S...
Single-incision laparoscopic (SIL) surgery is expanding, but its benefits, efficacy and safety over conventional laparoscopic (CL) surgery remain unclear. This pilot study examined clinical outcomes and biochemical markers of inflammation for SIL and CL colorectal resections in a randomised-controlled pilot trial.
Despite several technological efforts to maximize the quality and shelf life of chilled stored not-from-concentrate (NFC) orange juice, changes in the overall aroma profile might occur during storage. Besides the degradation of terpenoids, a loss of the aroma-active aldehydes, hexanal, octanal, nonanal and decanal as well-as of 1-penten-3-one were recently confirmed as a major cause for the changes in the aro-ma profile of orange juice even during storage under aseptic conditions at 0 °C. To unravel the fa...
