Combinational effect of angiotensin receptor blocker and folic acid therapy on uric acid and creatinine level in hyperhomocysteinemia associated hypertension.

Homocysteine [HSCH2CH2CH(NH2)COOH] (Hcy), is a sulfur-containing amino acid of 135.18 Da of molecular weight, generated during conversion of methionine to cysteine. If there is a higher accumulation of Hcy in the blood, i.e. usually above 15 µmol/L, it leads to a condition referred to as hyperhomocysteinemia. A meta-analysis of observational study suggested an elevated concentration of Hcy in blood, which is termed as the risk factors leading to ischemic heart disease (IHD) and stroke. Further experimenta...

Diagnosis and Treatment of Alcohol-Related Liver Diseases: 2019 Practice Guidance from the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases.

Alcoholic liver disease (ALD) represents a spectrum of liver injury resulting from alcohol use, ranging from hepatic steatosis to more advanced forms including alcoholic hepatitis (AH), alcoholic cirrhosis (AC), and acute alcoholic hepatitis presenting as acute on chronic liver failure (ACLF). ALD is a major cause of liver disease worldwide, both on its own and as a co-factor in the progression of chronic viral hepatitis, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), iron overload and other liver diseases. ALD ...

End-diastolic force pre-activates cardiomyocytes and determines contractile force; role of titin and calcium.

Titin functions as a molecular spring and cardiomyocytes are able, through splicing, to control the length of titin. We hypothesized that together with diastolic [Ca ] titin-based stretch pre-activates cardiomyocytes during diastole and is a major determinant of force production in the subsequent contraction. Through this mechanism titin would play an important role in active force development and length-dependent activation. Mutations in the splicing factor RNA binding motif protein 20 (RBM20) result in ex...

Antibodies against the DNABII protein integration host factor (IHF) inhibit sinus implant biofilms.

Chronic rhinosinusitis is a common, costly condition often treated with endoscopic sinus surgery and intraoperative placement of intranasal sinus implant materials. Whereas these materials aid in postoperative healing, they also support bacterial biofilm formation and thus contribute to negative outcomes. This study examined pretreatment of sinus implant materials with antibody against an essential bacterial biofilm structural component, the DNABII family of DNA-binding proteins, as a strategy to prevent bi...

Economic costs of dysphagia among hospitalized patients.

Difficulties swallowing may lead to aspiration pneumonia and death. In a hospital setting where patients are admitted for other causes, we hypothesized that the additional burden of a swallow problem would increase length of stay, rate of pneumonia, cost, readmissions, and morbidity compared to those without dysphagia.

BFGF blockade enhances lung cancer cell invasion by activating the AKT/MMP-2/VEGF pathway.

Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) can stimulate cancer cell growth and invasion; however, the influence of bFGF blockade remains unclear. Therefore, we aimed to explore the effects of bFGF blockade on the growth and invasion in A549 (high bFGF expression) and H2122 (low bFGF expression) lung cancer cells. We found that the blocking of bFGF by a neutralizing monoclonal antibody suppressed the growth of A549 cells but not of H2122 cells, as well as strongly induced the invasiveness of A549 cancer cells. F...

Superior Mesoporosity of Lipid Free Spent Coffee Grounds Residues.

As part of the biorefinery concept for spent coffee grounds (SCG), production of activated carbon (AC) was investigated from the degreased coffee grounds (DCG) left behind after oil extraction (primarily for biodiesel). The oils were extracted via conventional solvent extraction with GC/GC-MS confirming the oil was comparable to oils produced industrially. More significantly, analysis showed the DCG AC to have a 4-fold increase in mesoporosity than the SCG AC with mesopore volumes of 0.6 and 0.15 cm3 g-1 re...

A Practical Management Approach to Gastroparesis.

Gastroparesis is a syndrome characterised by delayed gastric emptying in the absence of mechanical obstruction. Symptoms can include early satiety, abdominal pain, bloating, vomiting, and regurgitation which cause significant morbidity in addition to nutritional deficits. There is a higher prevalence in diabetics and females, but the incidence in the Australian population has not been well studied. Management of gastroparesis involves investigating and correcting nutritional deficits, optimising glycaemic c...

Endoscopic features, pathological correlates and possible origin of foveolar gastric metaplasia presenting as a duodenal polyp.

It has recently been shown that duodenal foveolar gastric metaplasia (FGM) sometimes presents as a polyp. The mechanism by which FGM develops into a polypoid lesion is unknown and it is unclear whether this form of FGM is indistinguishable from other polypoid lesions or whether endoscopists do not recognize it because they are unfamiliar with it. We identified and retrieved archival cases of FGM endoscopically suspicious for adenomatous polyp and examined their pathological, clinical and endoscopic features...

Ultrafast All-Optical Modulation in 2D Hybrid Perovskites.

Two-dimensional (2D) hybrid organic-inorganic Ruddlesden-Popper perovskites (RPPs) have been recently shown to exhibit large nonlinear optical properties due to the strong excitonic effects present in their multiple quantum wells. In this work, we use nondegenerate pump-probe spectroscopy in the 600-1000 nm wavelength range to study the influence of nonlinear effects on the ultrafast dynamics of 2D RPP thin flakes. We find that, under sub-bandgap excitation, ⁓100-nm thick perovskite sheets allow up to ⁓...

Here, we demonstrate our success in preparing crystalline pure, battery grade monoclinic phase Li2MnSiO4 employing temperature programmed reaction (TPR) technique. The systematic analysis of the electrochemical behavior of Li2MnSiO4 reveals the excellent battery activity in the monoclinic phase, with an initial discharge capacity of ~250 mAh g-1 associated with the reversible intercalation of more than one Li+. The ext...

Freeform Diffractive Metagrating Design Based on Generative Adversarial Networks.

A key challenge in metasurface design is the development of algorithms that can effectively and efficiently produce high performance devices. Design methods based on iterative optimization can push the performance limits of metasurfaces, but they require extensive computational resources that limit their implementation to small numbers of microscale devices. We show that generative neural networks can train from images of periodic, topology-optimized metagratings to produce high-efficiency, topologically co...

Glyconanoparticles for Targeted Tumor Therapy of Platinum Anticancer Drug.

An important requirement to decrease the side effects of chemotherapy drugs is to develop nanocarriers with precise biological functions. In this work, a set of glyconanoparticles was prepared via self-assembly of amphiphilic glycoblock copolymers for the targeted delivery of a hydrophobic chemotherapy drug. Well-defined glycoblock copolymers that consist of 1,1-di-tert-butyl 3-(2-(metyloyloxy)ethyl)-butane-1,1,3-tricarboxylate (MAETC) together with three different protected-sugar moieties (β-D-glucopyrano...

Chemoselective Peptide Cyclization and Bicyclization Directly on Unprotected Peptides.

Cyclic peptides are drawing wide attentions as potential medium-sized modulators of biomolecular interactions with large binding surfaces. Simple but effective peptide cyclization methods are needed to construct cyclic peptide libraries by both peptide and non-peptide chemists. Herein, we report a highly chemoselective and operation-simple method directly cyclizing unprotected peptides, in which ortho-phthalaldehyde (OPA) is found to react with the lysine/N-terminus and cysteine within one unprotected pepti...

Lewis Strength Determines Specific-Ion Effects in Aqueous and Nonaqueous Solvents.

An analysis of specific-ion effects in aqueous and nonaqueous solvents using energy decomposition analysis is presented. Specific-ion effects induce or influence physicochemical phenomena in a way that is determined by the identity of the ions present, and not merely by their charge or concentration. Such effects have been known since the seminal work of Hofmeister and are often categorized according to the well-known Hofmeister series. Examples of specific-ion effects are ubiquitous throughout chemistry an...

First-principles nonequilibrium Green's function approach to ultrafast charge migration in glycine.

We investigate the photo-induced ultrafast charge migration phenomenon in the glycine molecule using a recently proposed nonequilibrium Green's functions (NEGF) approach. We first consider the dynamics resulting from the sudden removal of an electron in the valence shells, finding a satisfactory agreement with available data. Then we explicitly simulate the laser-induced photo-ionization process and study the evolution of the system after the pulse. We disentangle polarization and correlation effects in the...
