Maternal malnutrition during pregnancy impacts fetal growth, with developmental consequences that extend to later life outcomes. In underdeveloped countries, this malnutrition typically takes the form of poor dietary protein content and quality, even if adequate calories are consumed. Here, we report the establishment of a nonhuman primate model of gestational protein restriction (PR) in order to understand how placental function and pregnancy outcomes are affected by protein deficiency. Rhesus macaques were assigned to either a control diet containing 26% protein or switched to a 13% PR diet prior to conception and maintained on this PR diet throughout pregnancy...

INTRODUCTION: The onset of obesity at young ages is strongly associated with the early development of type 2diabetes (T2D). The shape of the curves of glucose and insulin curves during an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) could predict the risk of developing T2D. OBJECTIVE: To analyse the morphology of the OGTT and determine T2D risk factors in a mainly Caucasian population of children and adolescents. METHODS: Observational retrospective study including 588 patients (309 males, 279 females) with a mean age of 11...

Mepraia spinolai (Porter) is a vector of Trypanosoma cruzi that causes Chagas disease. Females are always wingless, but males may be winged or wingless. We determined by PCR the infection percentage with T. cruzi of M. spinolai adults and nymphs in domestic, peridomestic, and wild collections, in different regions of Chile. In all regions, winged males were more abundant than females and wingless males. Winged males collected inside houses were less parasitized than were those from peridomestic and wild environments...

Patients chronically infected with the hepatitis B virus (HBV) that are on long-term treatment with nucleoside or nucleotide analogues are at risk of selecting HBV strains with complex mutational patterns. We herein report two cases of HBV-infected patients with insufficient viral suppression despite dual antiviral therapy with entecavir (ETV) and tenofovir (TDF), of which one patient died from aggressive hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Ultra-deep pyrosequencing analyses revealed the selection of the rtS78T polymerase mutation in both cases that creates a premature stop codon at sC69 and thereby deletes almost the entire small HBV surface protein...

In an effort to improve the regenerative nature of corneal repair, this study reports the use of an in vitro human corneal fibroblasts (HCFs) wound model after treatment with three of the main growth factors (GFs) involved in corneal healing: transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGFβ1), platelet-derived growth factor BB-isoform (PDGF-BB), and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) in order to delve in cell proliferation and differentiation processes. HCFs were mechanically wounded. The individual effect of TGFβ1, PDGF-BB, and bFGF on cell proliferation and differentiation during the repair process was studied at different time points until wound closure...

Early life stress may precipitate psychopathology, at least in part, by influencing amygdala function. Converging evidence across species suggests that links between childhood stress and amygdala function may be dependent upon hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis function. Using data from college-attending non-Hispanic European-Americans (n=308) who completed the Duke Neurogenetics Study, we examined whether early life stress (ELS) and HPA axis genetic variation interact to predict threat-related amygdala function as well as psychopathology symptoms...

Carcinomas develop in complex environments that include a diverse spectrum of cell types that influence tumor cell behavior. These microenvironments represent dynamic systems that con-tribute to pathological processes. Damage to DNA is a notable inducer of both transient and permanent alterations in cellular phenotypes. Induction of a DNA-damage secretory program is known to promote adverse tumor cell behaviors such as proliferation, invasion, metastasis, and treatment resistance. However, prior studies designed to identify genotoxic stress-induced fac-tors evaluated actively proliferating in vitro cultures of cells such as fibroblasts as experimental models...

The placenta is a vital organ necessary for healthy fetal development. Placental insufficiency creates an in utero environment where the fetus is at risk of insufficient oxygen or nutrient exchange. This is primarily caused by impairment of either maternal or fetal circulation or vascular thrombosis such as placental infarction. As a result of placental dysfunction, affected fetuses may be growth restricted, neurologically impaired, and at risk of increased morbidity and mortality. In a cohort of 4 pregnant Rhesus macaques, we describe antenatal detection of naturally occurring intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and aberrant fetal neurodevelopment in 1 animal...

Luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) appear as candidates to enhance the performance of photovoltaic (PV) cells and contribute to reduce the size of PV systems, decreasing, therefore, the amount of material needed and thus the cost associated with energy conversion. One way to maximize the device performance is to explore near-infrared (NIR)-emitting centers, resonant with the maximum optical response of the most common Si-based PV cells. Nevertheless, very few examples in the literature demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating LSCs emitting in the NIR region...
