The aim of the present study was to determine the agreement between ultrasonography (US), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and conventional radiography (CR) in the detection of findings indicative of enthesopathy in spondyloarthritis (SpA) patients. A cross-sectional study was performed in 40 SpA patients. Heel entheses (Achilles tendon and plantar fascia) were bilaterally examined by US, MRI, and CR. The three imaging modalities were carried out by three independent operators blinded to the other imaging modality data...

BACKGROUND: During hospitalization, stroke patients are bedridden due to neurologic impairment, leading to loss of muscle mass, weakness, and functional limitation. There have been few studies examining respiratory muscle strength (RMS) in the acute phase of stroke. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the RMS of patients with acute stroke compared with predicted values and to relate this to anthropometric variables, risk factors, and neurologic severity. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study in the acute phase of stroke...

Resveratrol (Rsv) is widely reported to possess anticarcinogenic properties in a plethora of cellular and animal models having limited toxicity toward normal cells. In the molecular level, Rsv can act as a suppressive agent for several impaired signaling pathways on cancer cells. However, Fukuhara and Miyata have shown a non-proteic reaction of Rsv, which can act as a prooxidant agent in the presence of copper (Cu), causing cellular oxidative stress accompanied of DNA damage. After this discovery, the complex Rsv-Cu was broadly explored as an antitumor mechanism in multiples tumor cell lines...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: New drug-eluting stents (DES) designed to overcome the limitations of existing devices should initially be tested in preclinical studies. Our objective was to analyze the safety and efficacy of new biodegradable polymer-based DES compared with bare-metal stents (BMS) and commercially available DES in a model of normal porcine coronary arteries. METHODS: We randomly implanted 101 stents (BMS and biodegradable polymer-based sirolimus-eluting stents: 3 test stent iterations [BD1, BD2, and BD3], Orsiro, Biomime and Biomatrix) in the coronary arteries of 34 domestic pigs...

While marine protected areas (MPAs) can simultaneously contribute to biodiversity conservation and fisheries management, the global network is biased towards particular ecosystem types, as it was largely established in an ad hoc fashion. The optimization of trade-offs between biodiversity benefits and socio-economic values increases implementation success and minimizes enforcement costs in the long run, but is often neglected in marine spatial planning (MSP). Although the acquisition of spatially explicit socioeconomic data is often perceived as a costly/secondary step in MSP, it is critical to account for lost opportunities by people whose activities will be restricted, especially fishers...

INTRODUCTION: Dexterity is described as coordinated hand and finger movement for precision tasks. It is essential for day-to-day activities like computer use, writing or buttoning a shirt. Integrity of brain motor networks is crucial to properly execute these fine hand tasks. When these networks are damaged, interventions to enhance recovery are frequently accompanied by unwanted side effects or limited in their effect. Non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) are postulated to target affected motor areas and improve hand motor function with few side effects...

NaV1.7 is genetically implicated in human pain perception. Rare gain of function mutations in NaV1.7 lead to spontaneous pain in humans whereas loss of function mutations result in congenital insensitivity to pain (CIP). Hence, agents that specifically modulate the function of NaV1.7 have the potential to yield novel therapeutics to treat pain. The complexity of the channel and the challenges to generate recombinant cell lines with high NaV1.7 expression have led to a templated target strategy approach employing chimeras with the bacterial channel, NavAb...

JAK proteins have been linked with survival and proliferation of multiple myeloma (MM) cells; therefore, JAK inhibition could be a therapeutic strategy for MM. We evaluated JAK1 and JAK2 expression in MM patients and the effects of JAK/STAT pathway inhibition on apoptosis, cell cycle, gene and protein expression in RPMI-8226 and U266 MM cell lines. 57% of patients presented overexpression of JAK2 and 27%, of JAK1. After treatment with ruxolitinib and bortezomib, RPMI-8226 and U266 presented 50% of cells in late apoptosis, reduction of anti-apoptotic genes expression and higher number of cells in SubG0 phase...

Transcatheter edge-to-edge mitral valve repair (TMVr) with MitraClip has proved to be safe and effective for high-risk surgical patients with severe symptomatic degenerative mitral regurgitation. There is paucity of data regarding its use in functional mitral regurgitation (FMR). The objective of this study was to evaluate the use of MitraClip in patients with symptomatic moderate or severe FMR and a high surgical risk. Medical libraries were systematically searched for studies assessing the use of MitraClip for patients with symptomatic moderate or severe FMR and a high surgical risk...

Epilepsy is a common and devastating neurological disease affecting more than 50 million people worldwide. Accumulating experimental and clinical evidence suggests that inflammatory pathways contribute to the development of seizures in various forms of epilepsy. In this context, while the activation of the PGE2 EP2 receptor causes early neuroprotective and late neurotoxic effects, the role of EP2 receptor in seizures remains unclear. We investigated whether the systemic administration of the highly selective EP2 agonist ONO-AE1-259-01 prevented acute pentylenetetrazole (PTZ)- and pilocarpine-induced seizures...

Elemental characterization of fine particulate matter was undertaken at schools and residences in three low income neighborhoods in Quito, Ecuador. The three zones were located in the northern (Cotocollao), south central (El Camal), and south east (Los Chillos) neighborhoods and were classified as zones 1-3, respectively. Forty elements were quantified via ICP-MS analysis. Amongst the geogenic elements, the concentration of Si was the most abundant followed by S, Al, and Ca. Elements with predominantly anthropogenic sources such as Zn, V, and Ni were higher in zone 3 school followed by zone 2 and zone 1 schools...

The absence of suitable terminal electron acceptors (TEA) in soil might limit the oxidative metabolism of environmental microbial populations. Bioelectroventing is a bioelectrochemical strategy that aims to enhance the biodegradation of a pollutant in the environment by overcoming the electron acceptor limitation and maximizing metabolic oxidation. Microbial electroremediating cells (MERCs) are devices that can perform such a bioelectroventing. We also report an overall profile of the (14) C-ATR metabolites and (14) C mass balance in response to the different treatments...

Several studies have shown the positive effects of Ti either with nanotopography or coated with collagen on osteoblast differentiation. Thus, we hypothesized that the association of nanotopography with collagen may increase the in vitro osteogenesis on Ti surface. Ti discs with nanotopography with or without collagen coating were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy. Rat calvaria-derived osteoblastic cells were cultured on both Ti surfaces for up to 14 days and the following parameters were evaluated: cell proliferation, alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, extracellular matrix mineralization, protein expression of bone sialoprotein (BSP) and osteopontin (OPN), and gene expression of collagen type 1a (Coll1a), runt related transcription factor 2 (Runx2), osterix (OSX), osteocalcin (OC), Ki67, Survivin and Bcl2 associated X protein (BAX)...

This work reports the use of a cross-linked ureasil-PEO hybrid matrix (designated PEO800) as an efficient adsorbent to retain the emerging contaminant bisphenol A (BPA) from an aqueous medium. The in-deep experimental and theoretical results provide information about the interactions between PEO800 and BPA. The in situ UV-vis spectroscopy data and the pseudo-first order, pseudo-second order, Elovich, and Morris-Webber intraparticle diffusion models allowed us to propose a three-step mechanism for the adsorption of BPA onto PEO800...

It is generally believed that concepts can be characterized by their properties (or features). When investigating concepts encoded in language, researchers often ask subjects to produce lists of properties that describe them (i.e., the Property Listing Task, PLT). These lists are accumulated to produce Conceptual Property Norms (CPNs). CPNs contain frequency distributions of properties for individual concepts. It is widely believed that these distributions represent the underlying semantic structure of those concepts...

Vector-borne transmitted helminthic zoonosis affects the health and economy of both developing and developed countries. The concept of episystem includes the set of biological, environmental, and epidemiological elements of these diseases in defined geographic and temporal scales. Dirofilariasis caused by different species of the genus Dirofilaria is a disease affecting domestic and wild canines and felines and man, transmitted by different species of culicid mosquitoes. This complexity is increased because Dirofilaria species harbor intracellular symbiont Wolbachia bacteriae, which play a key role in the embryogenesis and development of dirofilariae and in the inflammatory pathology of the disease...
