Hands, much like faces, convey social information, instructions and intentions to an observer. While the neural processes of face perception have been widely studied, it was only recently that fMRI identified occipito-temporal areas sensitive to static images of hands as body parts. To complement these studies with fine-grained timing information, we measured event-related EEG potentials (ERPs) from 33 subjects who were presented with static images of hands versus faces, whole bodies, and inanimate objects as controls...

Water-soluble binders can enable greener and cost effective Li-ion battery manufacturing by eliminating the standard fluorine-based formulations and associated organic solvents. The issue with water-based dispersions, however, remains the difficulty to stabilize them, requiring additional processing complexity. Herein, we show that mechanochemical conversion of a regular poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS) water-based dispersion produces a hydrogel that meets all the requirements as binder for lithium-ion battery electrode manufacture...

INTRODUCTION: Tricuspid valve regurgitation (TR) is a frequent finding in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). However, its prognostic significance and relation to PAH, while suspected, are poorly understood. We assessed 727 consecutive patients with newly diagnosed PAH who underwent transthoracic echocardiographic evaluation of tricuspid valve function. OBJECTIVES: The study objective was to determine the association of TR presence and severity with patient characteristics, pulmonary artery hemodynamics, and outcome...

This study was conducted in order to assess the antimicrobial resistance patterns of E. coli isolated from young animals affected between 1980 and 2016. The selected isolates for this study (n=175) carried stx1/stx2 genes and the most prevalent type of pathogenic E. coli found belonged to serogroup O101, antigen (K99)-F41 positive. All STEC-positive isolates were tested for susceptibility to 11 antimicrobials. Multidrug resistance (MDR) increased from 11% during the 1980s to 40% between 2000 and 2016. Resistance to tetracycline and streptomycin was the most frequent co-resistance phenotype (37%)...

PURPOSE: Hemodynamic performance of aortic valve bioprostheses is essential for reliable function and durability. So far, the supra-annularly implanted stentless Sorin Freedom Solo (SFS) demonstrated unsurpassed hemodynamic properties. As contemporary stented and externally mounted pericardial bioprostheses, like the Labcor Dokimos Plus (LDP), also improve hemodynamic performance, these types of valves were compared in this study. METHODS: A total of 218 patients, who underwent aortic valve replacement with the LDP or the SFS, were matched retrospectively 1:1 on variables affecting hemodynamic measurements: implanted valve size, age, sex, and body surface area (BSA)...

BACKGROUND: Acute myelopathy in the case of thoracic disc herniation (TDH) is an exceptional condition, for which the treatment is not codified. We present here the results of a standardized procedure on ten patients operated between December 2009 and December 2016 for acute myelopathy on TDH. METHOD: Our strategy consists of a cautious laminectomy without resection of the hernia on the day of admission. In the following days, a complementary thoracoscopic procedure is organized according to the neurological recovery and the nature of the hernia (calcified or fibrous)...

BACKGROUND: Whether the consequences of diabetes mellitus (DM) are worse for women than for men treated with drug-eluting stents (DES) and antiplatelet therapy remain unclear. METHODS: Patients from the Assessment of Dual Antiplatelet Therapy With Drug-Eluting Stents study were stratified according to sex and DM status. We investigated the sex-specific effect of DM on high on-clopidogrel platelet reactivity (HPR), defined as a P2Y12 reaction units ≥208, and the adjusted association of DM on the 2-year risk for coronary thrombotic events (CTE), defined as spontaneous myocardial infarction or definite or probable stent thrombosis...

ReaxFF-based molecular dynamics simulations are used in this work to study the effect of polarity of adsorbed fluid molecules on the structure and polarization of hematite (α-Fe2O3). We compared adsorption of organic molecules with different polarity on a rigid hematite surface and on a flexible and polarizable surface. We show that the displacements of surface atoms and surface polarization in a flexible hematite model is proportional to the adsorbed molecule's polarity. The increase in electrostatic interactions resulting from charge transfer in the outermost solid atoms in a flexible hematite model results in better defined adsorbed layers, but less ordered than those obtained assuming a rigid solid...

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a non-invasive precursor to breast cancerand represents a heterogenous group of lesions with different malignant potential. Despite several randomized trials, there is still controversy regarding the optimal local treatment for DCIS patients. The addition of radiotherapy after breast conserving surgery approximately halves the local recurrence risk but has no impact on long-term survival. Clinical studies failed to identify a low risk subgroup of DCIS patients treated with breast conserving surgery in whom radiotherapy can be safely omitted...

Chronic hepatitis C (CHC) is a leading cause of liver disease. Despite the improved efficacy of new antivirals, their high costs preclude their adoption in resource-limited settings, where CHC prevalence is highest. We developed a triplex high resolution melting assay for the simultaneous assessment of three genetic polymorphisms related to the response to treatment and development of advanced fibrosis in CHC: IL28B rs12979860, ABCB11 rs2287622, and RNF7 rs16851720. We validated the assay in clinical samples from 130 CHC patients treated with classical therapy...

BACKGROUND: Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) is an aggressive primary tumor of the liver. While surgery remains the cornerstone of therapy, long-term survival following curative-intent resection is generally poor. The aim of the current study was to define the incidence of actual long-term survivors, as well as identify clinicopathological factors associated with long-term survival. METHODS: Patients who underwent a curative-intent liver resection for ICC between 1990 and 2015 were identified using a multi-institutional database...

Multinodular and vacuolating neuronal tumour (MVNT) is a new pattern of neuronal tumour included in the recently revised WHO 2016 classification of tumours of the CNS. There are fifteen reports in the literature to date. They are typically associated with late onset epilepsy and a neoplastic versus malformative biology has been questioned. We present a series of ten cases and compare their pathological and genetic features to better characterised epilepsy associated malformations including focal cortical dysplasia type II (FCDII) and low-grade epilepsy associated tumours (LEAT)...
