CSI Surrey: new integrated forensics venture launched.


A 'joint venture' model of recontacting in clinical genomics: Challenges for responsible implementation.

Advances in genomics often lead healthcare professionals (HCPs) to learn new information, e.g., about reinterpreted variants that could have clinical significance for patients seen previously. A question arises of whether HCPs should recontact these former patients. We present some findings interrogating the views of patients with a rare or undiagnosed condition about how such recontacting might be organised ethically and practically. Forty-one interviews with patients were analysed thematically. Participan...

Transcanalicular laser-assisted dacryocystorhinostomy with diode laser.

This article compares the efficacy of transcanalicular laser assisted dacryocystorhinostomy (TL DCR) with conventional external dacryocystorhinostomy (Ex DCR). All patients were randomly divided into two groups - Group A included patients who underwent TL DCR and Group B included patients who underwent Ex DCR. 168 operations were done in a total of 163 patients; 79 patients in group A and 84 patients in group B. The overall success rate was 90.12% in group A and 95.40% in group B. The mean total surgical ti...

Biology Gone Wild.

To study how genes, cells, or organisms operate in natural environments, researchers often need to leave the bench and venture into the field. Here are a few approaches that field biologists use in designing and conducting semi-wild experiments and the many challenges they face.

A multi-year study of tillage and amendment effects on compacted soils.

Constructing roads and buildings often involves removal of topsoil, grading, and traffic from heavy machinery. The result is exposed, compacted subsoil with low infiltration rate (IR), which hinders post-construction vegetation establishment and generates significant runoff, similar to impervious surfaces. Our goal was to assess tillage and adding amendments for improving density and maintaining perviousness of subsoils compacted during construction. The effects of tillage with and without amendments on (1)...

Egg and Milk Proteins as Hidden Allergens in Food: 5-Year (2010 to 2014) Results of Food Allergen Monitoring in Piedmont, Italy.

Cow's milk and egg allergies are two of the most common food allergies. Manufacturers of food products containing milk or eggs or their derivatives as an ingredient are required by European Union regulations to list their presence on the ingredient label. Under European Union legislation, member states are mandated to carry out food safety monitoring programs to verify compliance with food labeling requirements. Through the Regional Integrated Plan for Food Safety, the Piedmont (Italy) regional authority ca...

The role of lanthanides in the traceability of the milk production chain.

The traceability and authentication of milk was studied using trace and ultra-trace elements as chemical markers. Among these variables, the group of lanthanides resulted to be particularly useful at the purpose, due to their homogeneous distribution inside milk, which showed on the contrary to be intrinsically inhomogeneous from the ele-mental point of view. Using in this pilot study milk samples from a factory in Piedmont (Italy) we demonstrated that the distribution of lanthanides can be used as fingerpr...

In 2014-2015 and 2015-2016, a metropolitan school system in the southern United States embarked on a unique mission to improve the quality of its public prekindergarten programs through a partnership with a group of developmental researchers in an iterative, data-based venture. Data on 407 children in Year 1 and 433 in Year 2 (who were enrolled in 26 classrooms and extensively observed) are presented from the first 2 years of the ongoing partnership. All children were 4 years of age. Variability in classr...

Effects of leptin on femoral fracture in rats.

In this study, our objective was to evaluate effects of leptin on fracture healing in rats. Seventy two male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomized into 3 groups. Standardized femoral fractures were created in all the rats. Group A was treated with 1 mL normal saline (NS), group B with 0.3 μg/kg leptin in 1 mL NS, and group C with 0.5 μg/kg leptin in 1 mL NS for 2 weeks intraperitoneally. Each group was divided into three subgroups including 8 rats for evaluation at 2, 4 and 8 weeks. Radiological evalua...

Keeping up appearances: Strategic information exchange by disidentified group members.

Information exchange is a crucial process in groups, but to date, no one has systematically examined how a group member's relationship with a group can undermine this process. The current research examined whether disidentified group members (i.e., members who have a negative relationship with their group) strategically undermine the group outcome in information exchange. Disidentification has been found to predict negative group-directed behaviour, but at the same time disidentified members run the risk of...

Application of the Pentafluorosulfanyl Group as a Bioisosteric Replacement.

The success of fluorinated molecules in drug design has led medicinal chemists to search for new fluorine-containing substituents. A major recently developed group is the pentafluorosulfanyl group. This group is stable under physiological conditions and displays unique physical and chemical properties. Currently, few synthetic methods exist that install the SF5 group, yet efforts to integrate this group into lead optimization continue unabated. Typically, the SF5 group has been used as a replacement for a t...

Comparing Indirect Effects in Different Groups in Single-Group and Multi-Group Structural Equation Models.

In this article, we evaluated the performance of statistical methods in single-group and multi-group analysis approaches for testing group difference in indirect effects and for testing simple indirect effects in each group. We also investigated whether the performance of the methods in the single-group approach was affected when the assumption of equal variance was not satisfied. The assumption was critical for the performance of the two methods in the single-group analysis: the method using a product term...

Effect of Socioeconomic Status on Surgery Waiting Times and Mortality After Hip Fractures in Italy.

Reducing inequities is a main goal of the Italian healthcare system. We evaluated socioeconomic differences in delayed surgery and postoperative mortality after a hip replacement after a fracture in Piedmont Region (Italy).

Nigella Sativa Oil Protects the Rat Ovary from Oxidative Injury Due to Ischemia-Reperfusion.

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of Nigella sativa (N. sativa) oil (NSO) on ovarian oxidative damage following ischemia-reperfusion injury, using a rat model of ovarian torsion. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty-eight female albino Wistar rats were divided into six groups: (Group 1) laparotomy only; (Group 2) intraperitoneal NSO (2 ml/kg), 1 hour following laparotomy; (Group 3) 3 hours of ovarian ischemia; (Group 4) 3 hours of ovarian ischemia followed by 3 hours of reperfusion; (Group ...

Group and within-group variable selection for competing risks data.

Variable selection in the presence of grouped variables is troublesome for competing risks data: while some recent methods deal with group selection only, simultaneous selection of both groups and within-group variables remains largely unexplored. In this context, we propose an adaptive group bridge method, enabling simultaneous selection both within and between groups, for competing risks data. The adaptive group bridge is applicable to independent and clustered data. It also allows the number of variables...

Shear Bond Strength and Remineralisation Effect of a Casein Phosphopeptide-Amorphous Calcium Phosphate-Modified Glass Ionomer Cement on Artificial "Caries-Affected" Dentine.

This study investigated the effect of casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP)-modified glass ionomer cement (GIC) on shear bond strength (SBS) and remineralisation of artificial "caries-affected" dentine. Human dentine slices were demineralised and allocated to three groups: group 1, conventional GIC; group 2, CPP-ACP-modified GIC; and group 3, resin-modified GIC. The SBS was measured using a universal testing machine (n = 16 per group). Remaining samples (n = 8 per group) were subjected...

Decreased Radiation Exposure Among Orthopedic Residents Is Maintained When Using the Mini C-Arm After Undergoing Radiation Safety Training.

The resident curriculum of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery emphasizes radiation safety. Gendelberg showed that, immediately after a program on fluoroscopic safety, residents used less radiation when using the mini C-arm to reduce pediatric fractures. The current study evaluated whether this effect lasted. Residents underwent a new annual 3-hour session on mini C-arm use and radiation. Group A included 53 reductions performed before training. Group B included 45 reductions performed immediately aft...

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the application of diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) in spinal cord ischemia/reperfusion (SCI/R) injury and to explore its association with pathology. MATERIAL AND METHODS Japanese male long-eared rabbits were chosen and divided into 7 groups (8 rabbits in each group): control group (C group), sham-operation control group (S group), and 5 experimental groups (E-2 h group, E-24 h group, E-48 h group, E-7 d group, and E-14 d group). Tarlov scoring and immunohist...

Hereditary lysozyme amyloidosis with sicca syndrome, digestive, arterial, and tracheobronchial involvement: case-based review.

Lysozyme amyloidosis (ALys) is a rare autosomal dominant hereditary systemic amyloidosis associated with a large spectrum of clinical manifestations. ALys phenotype mainly involves the digestive tract, liver and spleen, kidneys, lymph nodes, skin, and lachrymal and salivary glands. Very recently, cardiac involvement and peripheral neuropathy associated with a new p.Leu102Ser variant of lysozyme have been documented. In the present observation, we extend the phenotypic heterogeneity of ALys to the tracheobro...

The effect of cannabinoid receptor 1 blockade on hepatic free fatty acid profile in mice with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

We used rimonabant to investigate the role of CB1 receptor on hepatic FFAs profile during NAFLD. Male mice C57BL/6 were divided into: control group fed with control diet 20 weeks (C; n=6); group fed with HFD 20 weeks (HF; n=6); group fed with control diet and treated with rimonabant after 18 weeks (R; n=9); group fed with HFD and treated with rimonabant after 18 weeks (HFR; n=10). Rimonabant (10mg/kg) was administered daily to HFR and R group by oral gavage. Rimonabant decreased liver palmitic acid proporti...

Preferential induction of cross-group influenza A hemagglutinin stem-specific memory B cells after H7N9 immunization in humans.

Antigenic drift and shift of influenza strains underscore the need for broadly protective influenza vaccines. One strategy is to design immunogens that elicit B cell responses against conserved epitopes on the hemagglutinin (HA) stem. To better understand the elicitation of HA stem-targeted B cells to group 1 and group 2 influenza subtypes, we compared the memory B cell response to group 2 H7N9 and group 1 H5N1 vaccines in humans. Upon H7N9 vaccination, almost half of the HA stem-specific response recognize...
