Continuous Pore-Spanning Lipid Bilayers On Silicon Oxide-Coated Porous Substrates.

A number of techniques has been developed and analyzed in recent years to generate pore-spanning membranes (PSMs). While quite a number of methods rely on nanoporous substrates, only a few use micrometer-sized pores to be able to individually resolve suspending membranes by means of fluorescence microscopy. To be able to produce PSMs on pores that are micrometer in size, an orthogonal functionalization strategy resulting in a hydrophilic surface is highly desirable. Here, we report on a method to prepare PS...


Increased Cellular Aging by 3 Years of Age in Latino, Preschool Children Who Consume More Sugar-Sweetened Beverages: A Pilot Study.

Methods Data from two cross-sect...

Circadian phase, circadian period and chronotype are reproducible over months.

The timing of the circadian clock, circadian period and chronotype varies among individuals. To date, not much is known about how these parameters vary over time in an individual. We performed an analysis of the following five common circadian clock and chronotype measures: 1) the dim light melatonin onset (DLMO, a measure of circadian phase), 2) phase angle of entrainment (the phase the circadian clock assumes within the 24-h day, measured here as the interval between DLMO and bedtime/dark onset), 3) free-...

Comparative effectiveness of lipid-lowering treatments to reduce cardiovascular disease.

With the advent of a new drug class - the proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitors, patients have another treatment option for lowering their high levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) in recent years. The objective of this study was to systematically review the cost-effectiveness of lipid-lowering agents such as statins, ezetimibe, and PCSK9 inhibitors. Areas covered: Based on PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, we identified a total of 29 re...

Epidemiology of Schmallenberg Virus in European Bison (Bison bonasus) in Poland.

Schmallenberg virus (SBV), an emerging arbovirus in Europe, is an important pathogen in domestic ruminants; however, its impact on free-ranging wild ruminants is not well studied. Three hundred and forty-seven serum samples collected between 2011 and 2016 from 302 European bison (Bison bonasus) from 12 different sites in Poland were tested for the presence of SBV antibodies. In addition, 86 sera were collected between 2013 and 2016 from three species of cervids for testing for SBV antibodies. After the firs...

Purpose Delayed intensification (DI) is an integral part of treatment of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), but it is associated with relevant toxicity. Therefore, standard-risk patients of trial AIEOP-BFM ALL 2000 (Combination Chemotherapy Based on Risk of Relapse in Treating Young Patients With ALL) were investigated with the specific aim to reduce treatment intensity. Patients and Methods Between July 2000 and July 2006, 1,164 patients (1 to 17 years of age) with standard-risk ALL (defined as ...

Patients with cranial dural arteriovenous fistulas may benefit from expanded hypercoagulability and cancer screening.

OBJECTIVE Cranial dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) have been associated with dural sinus occlusion, and previous reports have suggested the association of hypercoagulability with some cases. But the prevalence of a hypercoagulable state has not been systematically analyzed in conjunction with laboratory markers and clinical manifestations, including history of thromboembolism or systemic malignancy. The authors hypothesize that laboratory or clinical evidence of a hypercoagulable state, including cancer...

Glaucoma in patients with shunt-treated normal pressure hydrocephalus.

OBJECTIVE Changes in the pressure gradient between intraocular and intracranial compartments at the lamina cribrosa level are a possible explanation of normal tension glaucoma (NTG). Shunt-treated normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is a model for testing whether the increase (time from disease onset to CSF shunt placement, i.e., "protection period") and decrease (time from shunt placement to observation, i.e., "exposure period") in intracranial pressure (ICP) are glaucoma protective or risk factors, respec...

They have likewise been described in pediatric CT-based morphometric studies; however, clinical experience in the pediatric age group is limited. The authors here describe the use of cortical bone trajectory pedicle screws in posterior instrumented spinal fusions from the upper thoracic to the lumbar spine in 12 children. This dedicated study represents the initial use of cortical screws in pediatric spin...

Use of Mixed-Oil Fat Emulsion to Improve Intestinal Failure-Associated Liver Disease in Long-Term Home Parenteral Nutrition: A Case Report.

Home parenteral nutrition (HPN) is a life-saving therapy for patients who are not able to use their gastrointestinal tract. There are a number of complications associated with HPN, including metabolic bone disease, intestinal failure-associated liver disease (IFALD), and catheter-related bloodstream infections. We present a case of a 32-year-old HPN patient who initially developed biopsy-proven IFALD (total bilirubin, 2.4 mg/dL) while on long-term HPN. His HPN was initiated due to myopathic intestinal dysmo...

Twenty-Five Years of the Binary Power Law for Characterizing Heterogeneity of Disease Incidence.

Spatial pattern, an important epidemiological property of plant diseases, can be quantified at different scales using a range of methods. The spatial heterogeneity (or overdispersion) of disease incidence among sampling units is an especially important measure of small-scale pattern. As an alternative to Taylor's power law for the heterogeneity of counts with no upper bound, the binary power law (BPL) was proposed in 1992 as a model to represent the heterogeneity of disease incidence (number of plant units ...

Incidence and Consequences of Near-Drowning-Related Pneumonia-A Descriptive Series from Martinique, French West Indies.

Drowning represents one major cause of accidental death. Near-drowning patients are exposed to aspiration that may result in pneumonia with life-threatening consequences. We designed this descriptive study to investigate the frequency, nature, and consequences of post-drowning pneumonia. One hundred and forty-four near-drowning patients (33 children and 111 adults) admitted during four years to the University Hospital of Martinique, French Indies, were included.

Placement Stability, Cumulative Time in Care, and Permanency: Using Administrative Data from CPS to Track Placement Trajectories.

Objectives: The Quebec Youth Protection Act was amended in 2007. The main goal of this reform was to improve placement stability for children who are removed from their home for their protection. Among several legal provisions introduced was the establishment of maximum age-specific durations of out-of-home care, after which a plan must be established to provide stability for children placed in substitute care by finding permanent homes for them. The purpose of this study is (1) to examine trends in placeme...

The Association between Food Addiction and Early Maladaptive Schemas in Overweight and Obese Women: A Preliminary Investigation.

In recent years, there has been a growing focus on early maladaptive schemas (EMSs) as core features associated with eating psychopathology. The aims of the present study were to assess in overweight and obese women: (i) the association between dysfunctional eating patterns (i.e., food addiction and binge eating) and EMSs, and (ii) the association between food addiction and EMSs after controlling for potential confounding variables (i.e., binge eating severity and psychopathology). Participants were 70 over...

Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) signaling in glioblastoma multiforme-A systematic review.

The multifunctional sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is a lipid signaling molecule and central regulator in the development of several cancer types. In recent years, intriguing information has become available regarding the role of S1P in the progression of Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most aggressive and common brain tumor in adults. S1P modulates numerous cellular processes in GBM, such as oncogenesis, proliferation and survival, invasion, migration, metastasis and stem cell behavior. These processes a...

Social Environment and Hospitalisation after Release from Prison: A Prospective Cohort Study.

This study examined the association between remoteness and area disadvantage, and the rate of subsequent hospitalisation, in a cohort of adults released from prisons in Queensland. A baseline survey of 1267 adult prisoners within 6 weeks of expected release was prospectively linked with hospital, mortality and reincarceration records. Postcodes were used to assign remoteness and area disadvantage categories. Multivariate Andersen-Gill regression models were fitted to test for associations between remoteness...

Fertility preservation in the oncology patient.

In recent years, medical advances have substantially improved survival of cancer patients, generating growing concern about the quality of life of the survivors. Increased attention has been paid to reproductive problems after oncological treatments.
