Randomized controlled trial of monopolar cautery versus clips for staple line bleeding control in Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.

Bleeding from the staple line is a rare but serious problem following bariatric surgery. Staple line bleeding control (SLBC) can be achieved in different ways such as the application of sutures, clips, glue or buttressing materials over the staple line. Cauterization alone is generally not preferred due to concerns about debilitating the staple line.

To investigate the responses to switching to second-line regimens among patients who had received a long-term first-line antiretroviral therapy.Patients switching to second-line regimens from June 2008 to June 2015 were enrolled from an observational cohort. In addition, patients continuing first-line therapy and had a viral load

Investigation of epigenetic regulatory networks associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by integrated global LINE-1 methylation and gene expression profiling analyses.

The exact cause and mechanisms underlying the pathobiology of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) remain unclear. Dysregulation of long interspersed element-1 (LINE-1) has been reported in the brains of ASD-like mutant mice and ASD brain tissues. However, the role and methylation of LINE-1 in individuals with ASD remain unclear. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether LINE-1 insertion is associated with differentially expressed genes (DEGs) and to assess LINE-1 methylation in ASD.

Coronal Trunk Imbalance in Idiopathic Scoliosis: Does Gravity Line Localisation Confirm the Physical Findings?

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) can require surgical procedures that have major consequences. Coronal imbalance as assessed clinically using a plumb line is a key criterion for selecting patients to surgery. Nevertheless, the reference standard for assessing postural balance of the trunk is gravity line localisation within a validated frame of reference. Recent studies have established that the gravity line can be localised after body contour reconstruction from biplanar radiographs. The objective of ...

Surface line patterns of 5 μm and 5 μm width or 10 μm and 5 μm width for the polyelectrolyte brush and hydrophobic monolayer, respectively, were prepared by a photolithography process, chemical vapor adsorption method, and surface-initiated polymerization. A droplet of water containing dye was placed on the line-patterned surf...

Current First-line Therapy for Ovarian Cancer: A Comprehensive Review.

Ovarian, fallopian tube, and primary peritoneal cancers constitute the deadliest gynecologic malignancies. After primary cytoreductive surgery, there are several standard first-line cytotoxic treatments for providers to consider. Newer molecular targeted therapies are becoming more common and may have a role as first-line therapy in the future.

Should human germ line editing be allowed? Some suggestions on the basis of the existing regulatory framework.

The application of genetic editing techniques for the prevention or cure of disease is a highly promising tool for the future of humanity. However, its implementation contains a number of ethical and legal challenges that should not be underestimated. On this basis, some sectors have already asked for a veto on any intervention that modifies the human germ line, while supporting somatic line editing. In this paper, I will support that this suggestion makes no sense at all, because the somatic/germ line disj...

An SEIR model of influenza A virus infection and reinfection within a farrow-to-finish swine farm.

Influenza A virus (IAV) in swine is a pathogen that causes a threat to the health as well as to the production of swine. Moreover, swine can spread this virus to other species including humans. The virus persists in different types of swine farms as evident in a number of studies. The core objectives of this study are (i) to analyze the dynamics of influenza infection of a farrow-to-finish swine farm, (ii) to explore the reinfection at the farm level, and finally (iii) to examine the effectiveness of two co...

Derivation of an induced pluripotent stem cell line (MUSIi004-A) from dermal fibroblasts of a 48-year-old spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 patient.

Dermal fibroblasts were obtained from a 48-year-old female patient with spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 (SCA3). Fibroblasts were reprogrammed by nucleofection with episomal plasmids, carrying L-MYC, LIN28, OCT4, SOX2, KLF4, EBNA-1 and shRNA against p53. The SCA3 patient-specific iPSC line, MUSIi004-A, was characterized by immunofluorescence staining to verify the expression of pluripotent markers. The iPSC line exhibited an ability to differentiate into three germ layers by embryoid body (EB) formation. Karyo...

Generation of an induced pluripotent stem cell line from a patient with non-syndromic CLN3-associated retinal degeneration and a coisogenic control line.

We report the generation of the human iPSC line LEIi004-A from a patient with late-onset non-syndromic retinitis pigmentosa caused by compound heterozygous mutations in the CLN3 gene. Reprogramming of primary dermal fibroblasts was performed using episomal plasmids containing OCT4, SOX2, KLF4, L-MYC, LIN28, shRNA for p53 and mir302/367 microRNA. To create a coisogenic control line, one CLN3 variant was corrected in the patient-iPSC using CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing to generate the iPSC line LEIi004-A-1.

Evaluation of phenotypic and functional stability of RAW 264.7 cell line through serial passages.

Established cell lines are widely used in research, however an appealing question is the comparability of the cells between various laboratories, their characteristics and stability in time. Problematic is also the cell line misidentification, genetic and phenotypic shift or Mycoplasma contamination which are often forgotten in research papers. The monocyte/macrophage-like cell line RAW 264.7 has been one of the most commonly used myeloid cell line for more than 40 years. Despite its phenotypic and function...

Rules for Phase Shifts of Quantum Oscillations in Topological Nodal-Line Semimetals.

Nodal-line semimetals are topological semimetals in which band touchings form nodal lines or rings. Around a loop that encloses a nodal line, an electron can accumulate a nontrivial π Berry phase, so the phase shift in the Shubnikov-de Haas (SdH) oscillation may give a transport signature for the nodal-line semimetals. However, different experiments have reported contradictory phase shifts, in particular, in the WHM nodal-line semimetals (W=Zr/Hf, H=Si/Ge, M=S/Se/Te). For a generic model of nodal-line semi...

The results of the study of the influence of the conductivity of a thin film located with a certain gap above the acoustic delay line on the characteristics of propagating acoustic wave with a quasi-shear-horizontal polarization (SH) are presented. The delay line was made of Y-X lithium niobate plate with a thickness of 200 μm containing two interdigital transducers for exciting and receiving SH wave. The operating frequency range of the delay line was equal to 2.6-3.8 MHz. The 1 mm thick glass plate...

The effect of rate of injection on injection pressure profiles measured using in-line and needle-tip sensors: an in-vitro study.

Alongside ultrasonic visualisation, measurement of injection pressure is an effective tool for reducing the risk of intraneural injection during peripheral nerve block. The aim of this study was to compare injection pressure profiles when measured along the injection line with the pressure measured directly at the needle tip using different rates of injection. A syringe pump delivered a 5-ml injection of saline into silicone gel at three different speeds (5 ml.min , 10 ml.min and 15 ml.min ). Fibreoptic ...

Densification of Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Accompanied by Droplet Formation When Passing the Widom Line.

Thermal density fluctuations of supercritical CO_{2} were explored using small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), whose amplitude (susceptibility) and correlation length show the expected maximum at the Widom line. At low pressure, the susceptibility is in excellent agreement with the evaluated values on the basis of mass density measurements. At about 20 bar beyond the Widom line, SANS shows the formation of droplets accompanied by an enhanced number density of the supercritical fluid. The corresponding bor...

Laser based thermo-conductometry as an approach to determine ribbon solid fraction off-line and in-line.

Ribbon solid fraction is one of the most important quality attributes during roll compaction/dry granulation. Accurate and precise determination is challenging and no in-line measurement tool has been generally accepted, yet. In this study, a new analytical tool with potential off-line as well as in-line applicability is described. It is based on the thermo-conductivity of the compacted material, which is known to depend on the solid fraction. A laser diode was used to punctually heat the ribbon and the hea...
