#1
Jun Hu, Hope K Haefner
Vulvectomies often require removal of large areas of vulvar skin, which may result in problems with wound healing, including infections and scarring. At times, skin grafting is needed following a vulvectomy, and for large excisions, a Foley catheter and rectal tube are often required. Vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) for vulvectomy, with or without skin grafting, has been used for a variety of vulvar conditions. The difficult portion of performing these procedures, with the use of the wound VAC, is obtaining an adequate seal around the Foley catheter and rectal tube...

Southern New England salt marsh vegetation and habitats are changing rapidly in response to sea-level rise. At the same time, fiddler crab ( Uca spp.) distributions have expanded and purple marsh crab ( Sesarma reticulatum ) grazing on creekbank vegetation has increased. Sea-level rise and reduced predation pressure drive these changing crab populations but most studies focus on one species; there is a need for community-level assessments of impacts from multiple crab species. There is also a need to identify additional factors that can affect crab populations...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Reconstruction of craniofacial cartilagenous defects are among the most challenging surgical procedures in facial plastic surgery. Bioengineered craniofacial cartilage holds immense potential to surpass current reconstructive options, but limitations to clinical translation exist. We endeavored to determine the viability of utilizing adipose-derived stem cell-chondrocyte co-culture and three-dimensional (3D) printing to produce 3D bioscaffolds for cartilage tissue engineering...

Chelsea L Reighard, Scott J Hollister, David A Zopf
The human ear imparts critical form and function and remains one of the most challenging facial features to reconstruct. Over the past century, surgeons have developed numerous techniques and materials for total auricular reconstruction. Refined costal cartilage techniques have remained the gold standard for the past half-century. Recent advancements with novel materials, tissue engineering and 3D printing provide immense potential; however, prohibitive costs and regulatory steps remain as barriers to clinical translation...

BACKGROUND: We developed skin prick test (SPT) reagents for common inhalant allergens that reflected the real exposure in Korea. The study aim was to evaluate diagnostic usefulness and allergen potency of our inhalant SPT reagents in comparison with commercial products. METHODS: We produced eight common inhalant allergen SPT reagents using total extract (Prolagen): Dermatophagoides farinae, Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus, oak, ragweed, mugwort, Humulus japonicus pollens, as well as cat and dog allergens...

Pancreatic duct epithelial cells have been suggested as a source of progenitors for pancreatic growth and regeneration. However, genetic lineage-tracing experiments with pancreatic duct-specific Cre expression have given conflicting results. Using immunofluorescence and flow cytometry, we show heterogeneous expression of both HNF1β and SOX9 in adult human and murine ductal epithelium. Their expression was dynamic and diminished significantly after induced replication. Purified pancreatic duct cells formed organoid structures in 3D culture, and heterogeneity of expression of Hnf1β and Sox9 was maintained even after passaging...

3D printing is now adopted for use in a variety of industries and functions. In biomedical engineering, 3D printing has prevailed over more traditional manufacturing methods in tissue engineering due to its high degree of control over both macro- and microarchitecture of porous tissue scaffolds. However, with the improved flexibility in design come new challenges in characterizing the structure-function relationships between various architectures and both mechanical and biological properties in an assortment of clinical applications...

Metrics describing the shape and size of lakes, known as lake morphometry metrics, are important for any limnological study. In cases where a lake has long been the subject of study these data are often already collected and are openly available. Many other lakes have these data collected, but access is challenging as it is often stored on individual computers (or worse, in filing cabinets) and is available only to the primary investigators. The vast majority of lakes fall into a third category in which the data are not available...

Boronic acids are attracting a lot of attention as β-lactamase inhibitors, and in particular, compound S02030 ( Ki = 44 nM) proved to be a good lead compound against ADC-7 ( Acinetobacter-derived cephalosporinase), one of the most significant resistance determinants in A. baumannii. The atomic structure of the ADC-7/S02030 complex highlighted the importance of critical structural determinants for recognition of the boronic acids. Herein, to elucidate the role in recognition of the R2-carboxylate, which mimics the C3 /C4 found in β-lactams, we designed, synthesized, and characterized six derivatives of S02030 (3a)...

Acinetobacter baumannii is a multidrug resistant pathogen that infects more than 12 000 patients each year in the US. Much of the resistance to β-lactam antibiotics in Acinetobacter spp. is mediated by class C β-lactamases known as Acinetobacter-derived cephalosporinases (ADCs). ADCs are unaffected by clinically used β-lactam-based β-lactamase inhibitors. In this study, five boronic acid transition state analog inhibitors (BATSIs) were evaluated for inhibition of the class C cephalosporinase ADC-7. Our goal was to explore the properties of BATSIs designed to probe the R1 binding site...

The search for antiprion compounds has been encouraged by the fact that transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) share molecular mechanisms with more prevalent neurodegenerative pathologies, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. Cellular prion protein (PrPC ) conversion into protease-resistant forms (protease-resistant PrP [PrPRes ] or the scrapie form of PrP [PrPSc ]) is a critical step in the development of TSEs and is thus one of the main targets in the screening for antiprion compounds. In this work, three trimethoxychalcones (compounds J1, J8, and J20) and one oxadiazole (compound Y17), previously identified in vitro to be potential antiprion compounds, were evaluated through different approaches in order to gain inferences about their mechanisms of action...

Fat embolism syndrome is a serious multi-system pathology which classically affects the respiratory system, neurological system and causes a petechial rash. We present the case of a 20-year-old farmer who developed fat embolism syndrome following a traumatic femoral fracture. Features developed within 24 h of injury and necessitated a prolonged stay in Intensive Care. He exhibited significant signs of cerebral fat embolism syndrome including coma and seizures but went on to make full functional recovery. Magnetic resonance imaging is the recommended imaging modality for patients with suspected cerebral fat embolism...

BACKGROUND: Variations in gut microbiota composition and diversity have been associated with childhood adiposity, although most studies describing this have been cross-sectional in nature. Our objective was to evaluate associations between body weight and the gut microbiota over time in obese preschool-age children. METHODS: Obese, preschool-age, Hispanic children provided stool samples at baseline and following a 6-month behavioral intervention. Normal-weight (NW) children also provided stool samples...

OBJECTIVES: Recent studies using advanced statistical methods to control for confounders have demonstrated an association between helicopter transport (HT) versus ground ambulance transport (GT) in terms of improved survival for adult trauma patients. The aim of this study was to apply a methodologically vigorous approach to determine if HT is associated with a survival benefit for when trauma patients are transported to a verified trauma center in a rural setting. METHODS: The ascertainment of trauma patients age ≥ 15 years (n = 469 cases) by HT and (n = 580 cases) by GT between 1999 and 2012 was restricted to the scene of injury in a rural area of 10 to 35 miles from the trauma center...

The transcription factors Bcl6 and Blimp1 have opposing roles in the development of the follicular helper T (TFH ) cells: Bcl6 promotes and Blimp1 inhibits TFH -cell differentiation. Similarly, Bcl6 activates, while Blimp1 represses, expression of the TFH -cell marker PD-1. However, Bcl6 and Blimp1 repress each other's expression, complicating the interpretation of the regulatory network. Here we sought to clarify the extent to which Bcl6 and Blimp1 independently control TFH -cell differentiation by generating mice with T-cell specific deletion of both Bcl6 and Blimp1 (double conditional KO [dcKO] mice)...
