The Case: Chronic Kidney Disease Unmasked by Single-Subject Research.

We present a 42-year-old man with a BMI of 32, who was referred because of proteinuria and decreased renal function. We were impressed by his markedly muscular physique. A renal biopsy was performed, which showed focal segmental glomerular sclerosis (FSGS). Is this patient merely an obese person with FSGS or is something else going on here? We performed extensive clinical and laboratory examinatio...

Evaluating the effects of check dams on channel geometry, bed sediment size and riparian vegetation in Mediterranean mountain torrents.

In mountain streams possible negative impacts of check dams on soil, water and riparian vegetation due to check dam installation can be noticed. In spite of the ample literature on the qualitative effects of engineering works on channel hydrology, morphology, sedimentary effects and riparian vegetation characteristics, quantitative evaluations of the changes induced by check dams on headwater char...

Biomolecules-mediated synthesis of selenium nanoparticles using Aspergillus oryzae fermented Lupin extract and gamma radiation for hindering the growth of some multidrug-resistant bacteria and pathogenic fungi.

Biosynthesis of nanoparticles by fermented plants using microbes is an eco-friendly and cost-effective process. In this study, we used the fungus Aspergillus orayzae for the fermentation process. The aqueous extract of fermented Lupin (AEFL) possesses the ability to reduce selenium ion in the presence of gamma rays evidenced by the color changes to red. Elemental composition, surface morphology, a...

Super High Resolution for Single Molecule-Sequence-Based Typing of Classical HLA Loci Using Ion Torrent PGM.

Super high resolution-single molecule-sequence-based typing (SS-SBT) is an HLA DNA typing method to the field 4 level of allelic resolution (formerly known as 8-digit typing) to efficiently detect novel and null alleles without phase ambiguity by combination of long ranged PCR amplification and next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies. In this chapter, we describe three basic steps, long rang...

iHART: methodological inconsistency precludes hypoglycemia conclusions.

Recently Diabetic Medicine, Reddy and colleagues published the original article 'A randomized controlled pilot study of continuous glucose monitoring and flash glucose monitoring in people with Type 1 diabetes and impaired awareness of hypoglycaemia' [1]. In the randomized, non-masked parallel group study, 40 adults with Type 1 diabetes using a multiple-dose insulin-injection regimen with a Gold ...

Adaptation of an amplicon-based human cancer next-generation sequencing panel assay for murine tumors.

Unlike humans, inbred genetically engineered mice have minimal inter-individual variation and, consequently, offer substantially increased statistical power for robust definition of recurrent cooperating cancer mutations. While technically feasible, whole exome sequencing is expensive and extremely data-intensive. Somatic mutation analysis using panels of 25-75 genes now provides detailed insight ...

Non-small cell lung cancers with Isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 or 2 (IDH1/2) mutations.

Isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 and 2 (IDH1/2) are important metabolic enzymes that convert isocitrate to α-ketoglutarate. IDH1/2 mutations are associated with the development of multiple malignancies. In this study, we examine the prevalence and features of non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC) with IDH1/2 mutations. From May 2013 - March 2017, 800 lung cancer samples were successfully sequenced for so...

INDEL variation in the regulatory region of the major flowering time gene LanFTc1 is associated with vernalisation response and flowering time in narrow-leafed lupin (Lupinus angustifolius L.).

Narrow-leafed lupin (Lupinus angustifolius L.) cultivation was transformed by two dominant vernalisation-insensitive, early flowering time loci known as Ku and Julius (Jul), which allowed expansion into shorter season environments. However, reliance on these loci has limited genetic and phenotypic diversity for environmental adaptation in cultivated lupin. We recently predicted that a 1,423 bp del...

Phenolic contents and antioxidant capacities of wild and cultivated white lupin (Lupinus albus L.) seeds.

The aim of this study was to compare the antioxidant capacities and phenolic compound profiles of wild and cultivated Lupinus albus L. seeds. The total phenolic content (TPC), radical scavenging activity, ferric-reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) and antioxidant activity in an β-carotene-linoleic acid emulsion were determined. Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry was used to identify phenolics....

Oleifera), flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum), oil hemp seed (Cannabis sativa), buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum), and quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa). Basic compositi...

Concordance of mitochondrial DNA sequencing methods on bloodstains using Ion PGM™.

In this study, the complete mitochondrial genome (mtGenome) of six samples from three forensic cases was sequenced using the Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine (PGM). The analyzed samples from forensic cases included bloodstains from several materials, such as gauze, Flinder's Technology Associates (FTA) cards and swabs. The age of the samples ranged from two months to twelve years. The complete ...

Prior Authorization: Do Insurers Pay Bonuses for Denying New-Drug Requests?

A MedPage Today blog post suggested that they do. A torrent of online comments followed. Most were somewhere on the spectrum of outraged. For their part, industry veterans said that they're unaware of bonuses for denials but agree that prior authorization processes should be more transparent.

Exploring the genetic and adaptive diversity of a pan-Mediterranean crop wild relative: narrow-leafed lupin.

This first pan-Mediterranean analysis of genetic diversity in wild narrow-leafed lupin revealed strong East-West genetic differentiation of populations, an historic eastward migration, and signatures of genetic adaptation to climatic variables. Most grain crops suffer from a narrow genetic base, which limits their potential for adapting to new challenges such as increased stresses associated with ...

Performance of the Early Access AmpliSeq™ Mitochondrial Panel with degraded DNA samples using the Ion Torrent™ platform.

The Early Access AmpliSeq™ Mitochondrial Panel amplifies whole mitochondrial genomes for phylogenetic and kinship identifications, using Ion Torrent™ technology. There is currently limited information on its performance with degraded DNA, a common occurrence in forensic samples. This study evaluated the performance of the Panel with DNA samples degraded in vitro, to mimic conditions commonly f...

Evolution of morphology and locomotor performance in anurans: Relationships with microhabitat diversification.

The relationships between morphology, performance, behavior and ecology provide evidence for multiple and complex phenotypic adaptations. The anuran body plan, for example, is evolutionarily conserved and shows clear specializations to jumping performance back at least to the early Jurassic. However, there are instances of more recent adaptation to habit diversity in the post-cranial skeleton, inc...
