Although most transient ischemic attack and minor stroke patients in US emergency departments (EDs) are admitted, experience in other countries suggests that timely outpatient evaluation of transient ischemic attack and minor stroke can be safe. We assess the feasibility and safety of a rapid outpatient stroke clinic for transient ischemic attack and minor stroke: Rapid Access Vascular Evaluation-Neurology (RAVEN).
Increasing research and development works have been made to develop forward osmosis (FO) processes as a cost-effective substitute for energy intensive water vacuum suction facility in submerged membrane bioreactor (MBR) applications. Perceived to be a spontaneous water driven process without external applied pressures, the FO has been applied in lab and pilot scales for wastewater bioremediation. This paper reviewed the state-of-the-art developments on the FO unit, the process, and ways of enhancing process...
To assess the safety and effectiveness of Schlemm canal stenting for reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) in combination with cataract surgery in the United States cohort of the HORIZON study.
Inflammasomes are a multi-protein platform forming a part of the innate immune system. Inflammasomes are at standby status and can be activated when needed. Inflammasome activation is an important mechanism for the production of active interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-18, which have important roles to instruct adaptive immunity. Active forms of inflammasomes trigger a series of inflammatory cascades and lead to the differentiation and polarization of naïve T cells and secretion of various cytokines, which can i...
Clinical trials consume the latter half of the 10 to 15 year, 1.5-2.0 billion USD, development cycle for bringing a single new drug to market. Hence, a failed trial sinks not only the investment into the trial itself but also the preclinical development costs, rendering the loss per failed clinical trial at 800 million to 1.4 billion USD. Suboptimal patient cohort selection and recruiting techniques, paired with the inability to monitor patients effectively during trials, are two of the main causes for high...
The antiproliferative action of hispolon derivatives is stronger than that of related curcumin against several tumor cell lines. Hispolon size, smaller than curcumin, fits better than curcumin into the active site of HDAC6, an enzyme involved in deacetylation of lysine residues. HDACs are considered potential targets for tumor drug discovery and hydroxamates are known inhibitors of HDACs. One of them, SAHA (Vorinostat) is used in clinical studies. Investigations into possible mechanisms for hispolon derivat...
Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is currently performed on active patients with increasing functional demands. Single stage bilateral THA is indicated in younger patients in good general health. Our objective is to evaluate the return to sport (RTS) in patients who underwent bilateral single stage THA compared to unilateral THA.
Given the lack of a consensus on a catalogue of donation barriers, this study proposes a holistic scale of barriers which was used to segment Spanish active blood donors to define specific retention and loyalty strategies. A sample of 26 626 active donors from 14 of the 17 Spanish blood transfusion centers assessed a total of 25 barriers through an online survey. This scale was validated and 4 barrier categories were defined: Informative, Intrinsic, Time-space and Procedural. Segmentation was performed th...
The last decade has witnessed developments in the CF drug pipeline which are both exciting and unprecedented, bringing with them previously unconsidered challenges. The Task Force group came together to consider these challenges and possible strategies to address them. Over the last 18 months, we have discussed internally and gathered views from a broad range of individuals representing patient organizations, clinical and research teams, the pharmaceutical industry and regulatory agencies. In this and the...

Suboccipital steroid injection can be used as a preventive treatment for episodic and chronic cluster headache (CH). In recent studies, prophylactic treatment has been used in addition to suboccipital steroid injection. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effectivity of the sole use of rapid- and long-acting steroid injections without prophylactic treatment in patients with episodic and chronic CH.
Erectile dysfunction is a common condition among diabetic men. Many treatments are now available with variable responses.
Emphysema is a hallmark of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The primary aim of this study was to investigate inter- and intraobserver agreement of visual assessment of mild emphysema in low-dose multidetector computed tomography of subjects in the pilot SCAPIS in order to certify consistent detection of mild emphysema. The secondary aim was to investigate the performance of quantitative densitometric measurements in the cohort.
A hallmark of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is the excess accumulation of extracellular matrix in the lungs. Degradation of extracellular matrix generates free-circulating protein fragments called neoepitopes. The aim of the INMARK trial was to investigate changes in neoepitopes as predictors of disease progression in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and the effect of nintedanib on these biomarkers.
Intravesical botulinum toxin A (BtA) injection is well established in managing paediatric neuropathic detrusor overactivity (NDO). Electromotive drug administration (EMDA) is a less invasive method, which can be performed in the clinic, using pulsed electrical current for drug delivery via a urethral catheter. Few small studies report good outcomes following BtA via EMDA (BtA/EMDA) into bladders of children with NDO.
Directed evolution methodologies have been used as promising strategies for improving the catalytic properties of many existing enzymes. In the presented work, this approach was applied to improve the enzyme activity of l-asparaginase I obtained from Bacillus megaterium H-1. After two rounds of error-prone polymerase chain reaction (epPCR) and two generations of sequential DNA shuffling, all of 5 different mutants showed a significant increase in the enzyme activity of l-asparaginase I, ranging from 6.27 to...
To investigate whether preemptive extensive rotator interval (RI) release during arthroscopic rotator cuff repair (ARCR) would reduce postoperative stiffness.
Faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) has shown promise in alleviating the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS); however, controlled data on this technique are scarce. The aim of this clinical trial was to assess the efficacy of FMT in alleviating diarrhoea-predominant IBS (IBS-D).
Spared corticospinal tract (CST) and proprioceptive afferent (PA) axons sprout after injury and contribute to rewiring spinal circuits, affecting motor recovery. Loss of CST connections post-injury results in corticospinal signal loss and associated spinal activity. We investigated the role of activity loss and injury on CST and PA sprouting. To understand activity-dependence after injury, we compared CST and PA sprouting after motor cortex (MCX) inactivation, produced by chronic MCX muscimol microinfusion,...
Neuropeptide S (NPS) is the endogenous ligand of a G-protein coupled receptor named NPS receptor. The NPS system controls several biological functions, including anxiety, wakefulness, locomotor activity, food intake, and pain transmission. A growing body of evidence supports facilitatory effects for NPS over dopaminergic neurotransmission. The present study was aimed to investigate the role of dopamine receptors signaling in the antinociceptive effects of NPS in the mouse formalin test. The following dopami...
Psoriasis is a Th17 autoimmune disease associated with an increased risk cardiovascular events and mortality. Ustekinumab, an antibody to p40, blocks cytokines IL12 and IL23, and is a highly effective and safe treatment for psoriasis.
Numerous studies have shown that temporal attention plays an important role in selective attention. The present study used the event-related potential (ERP) to investigate how temporal attention modulates effects of feature-based attention in visual selection when both dimensions are task-relevant. We combined a modified temporal cueing paradigm with a feature-based attention task. In each trial, either a valid or an invalid temporal cue announced a short or long foreperiod (FP). After each FP, a visual sti...
