BACKGROUND: The Tridax procumbens extracts (TPE) are known for their ethno-medicinal properties to increase osteogenic functioning in mesenchymal stem cells. Recently, we found that the T. procumbens flavonoids (TPF) significantly suppressed the RANKL-induced osteoclasts differentiation and bone resorption. The TPF also promoted osteoblasts differentiation and bone formation demonstrated by increasing bone formation markers in cultured mouse primary osteoblasts. However, the effects of the TPF on in vivo bone formation remain unclear...

The objective of our study was to compare adhesion of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius (MRSP) to stainless steel (SS) and to tantalum (TA) canine limb salvage endoprosthesis implants in an in vitro experimental study. The median of the mean log10 colony forming units/mL for adherent MRSP was 4.96 (range: 4.63 to 6.33) for the TA endoprosthesis and 4.31 (range: 3.86 to 5.05) for the SS endoprosthesis (P = 0.009). Although the trabecular and porous design of the TA endoprosthesis provides mechanical benefits over the SS endoprosthesis, it may increase the risk of developing infection due to higher levels of bacterial adherence...

Fungal pathogens like Candida albicans exhibit several survival mechanisms to evade attack by antifungals and colonize host tissues. Rta3, a member of the Rta1-like family of lipid-translocating exporters has a 7-transmembrane domain (7TMD) topology, similar to the G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) and is unique to the fungal kingdom. Our findings point towards a role for the plasma membrane localized Rta3 in providing tolerance to miltefosine, an analog of alkylphosphocholine, by maintaining mitochondrial energetics...

INTRODUCTION: Dural venous sinus stenosis (DVSS) may lead to increased intracranial pressure, sometimes requiring a stent if a high pressure gradient exists. Many neuroendovascular physicians use microcatheters to measure gradients, yet there are no studies comparing the accuracies and precisions of modern day microcatheters. We examined pressure recordings from five commonly used microcatheters in an experimental DVSS model. METHODS: Using a programmable pump, dynamic flow was established in a closed circuit mimicking the venous sinus waveform...

Uterine fibroids in pregnancy present with numerous complications. However, spontaneous rupture is a rare and potentially life-threatening event. We report a case of a 43-year-old multiparous woman who presented with hypovolemic shock secondary to a ruptured uterine fibroid 2 days after a spontaneous vaginal delivery. Emergency laparotomy confirmed massive intra-abdominal hemorrhage from the ruptured capsule of a 10-cm subserosal fibroid. A myomectomy was performed. Her postoperative recovery period was uneventful...

The Catskill Mountains have been adversely impacted by decades of acid deposition, however, since the early 1990s, levels have decreased sharply as a result of decreases in emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. This study examines trends in acid deposition, stream-water chemistry, and soil chemistry in the southeastern Catskill Mountains. We measured significant reductions in acid deposition and improvement in stream-water quality in 5 streams included in this study from 1992 to 2014. The largest, most significant trends were for sulfate (SO4(2-)) concentrations (mean trend of -2...

PURPOSE AND HYPOTHESIS: Adjuvant intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) during leg immobilization following Achilles tendon rupture (ATR) has been shown to reduce the risk of deep venous thrombosis. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether IPC can also promote tendon healing. METHODS: One hundred and fifty patients with surgical repair of acute ATR were post-operatively leg immobilized and prospectively randomized. Patients were allocated for 2 weeks of either adjuvant IPC treatment (n = 74) or treatment-as-usual (n = 74) in a plaster cast without IPC...

Paraoxonase-1 (PON1) is an organophosphate hydrolyzer and antiatherogenic enzyme. Due to the PON1's crucial functions, inhibitors and activators of PON1 must be known for pharmacological applications. In this study, we investigated the in vitro effects of some sulfonamides compounds on human serum PON1 (hPON1). For this aim, we purified the hPON1 from human serum with high specific activity by using simple chromatographic methods, and after the purification processes, we investigated in vitro interactions between the enzyme and some sulfonamides (2-amino-5-methyl-1,3-benzenedisulfonamide, 2-chloro-4-sülfamoilaniline, 4-amino-3-methylbenzenesulfanilamide, sulfisoxazole, sulfisomidine, and 5-amino-2-methylbenzenesulfonamide)...

Reactive arthritis is an inflammatory joint disease that develops after an infection and it usually occurs following a gastrointestinal or genitourinary system infection and it belongs to the family of arthritis called "spondyloarthritis." We wanted to represent a rare case of reactive arthritis secondary to Echinococcus infestation. Cyst hydatid disease is common in endemic regions like Turkey. Internal organ involvements, especially liver and lung, are most frequent involvements. Primary bone involvement is rare complication of Echinococcus infestation...

Emerging viruses such as HIV, dengue, influenza A, SARS coronavirus, Ebola, and other viruses pose a significant threat to human health. Majority of these viruses are responsible for the outbreaks of pathogenic lethal infections. To date, there are no effective therapeutic strategies available for the prophylaxis and treatment of these infections. Chloroquine analogs have been used for decades as the primary and most successful drugs against malaria. Concomitant with the emergence of chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium strains and a subsequent decrease in the use as antimalarial drugs, other applications of the analogs have been investigated...

Concepts of individualized therapy in the 1970s and 1980s attempted to develop predictive in vitro tests for individual drug responsiveness without reaching clinical routine. Precision medicine attempts to device novel individual cancer therapy strategies. Using bioinformatics, relevant knowledge is extracted from huge data amounts. However, tumor heterogeneity challenges chemotherapy due to genetically and phenotypically different cell subpopulations, which may lead to refractory tumors. Natural products always served as vital resources for cancer therapy (e...
