BACKGROUND: Branch canker caused by Macrophoma theicola is a major stem disease of tea plants (Camellia spp.). In tea plantations, this disease causes crop loss and it is one of the major limiting factor for yield stagnation. In very few instances it causes considerable damage in new clearings (about 3 or 4 years old) and large number of bushes have been killed. As there is no control measures for branch canker disease in south Indian tea plantation, this field study was conducted in naturally infected pruned tea field at UPASI Tea Research Institute (Good Agricultural Practice), Valparai, Tamil Nadu, India...

Authenticity at work refers to the extent to which a worker feels in touch with their true self while at work. At first sight this concept seems to overlap with the concept of person-environment (P-E) fit, that is, the degree to which an individual experiences good fit with their work environment. Drawing on a sample of 867 Dutch gifted workers, structural equation modeling was used to investigate (i) whether authenticity at work and P-E fit can be distinguished, and (ii) how authenticity at work and P-E fit were associated with employee well-being...

Allergic Rhinitis and its Impact on Asthma (ARIA) has evolved from a guideline using the best approach to integrated care pathways (ICPs) using mobile technology in AR and asthma multimorbidity. The proposed next phase of ARIA is Change Management (CM) with the aim of providing an active and healthy life to rhinitis sufferers and to those with asthma multimorbidity across the life cycle whatever their gender or socio-economic status in order to reduce health and social inequities incurred by the disease. ARIA has followed the 8-step model of Kotter to assess and implement the impact of rhinitis on asthma multimorbidity and to propose multimorbid guidelines...

Although there is growing evidence that cortistatin regulates several functions in different tissues, its role in the endocrine pancreas is not totally known. Here, we aim to study the effect of cortistatin on pancreatic beta-cells and glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS). Exposure of isolated mouse islets to cortistatin inhibited GSIS. This effect was prevented using a somatostatin receptor antagonist. Additionally, cortistatin hyperpolarized the membrane potential and reduced glucose-induced action potentials in isolated pancreatic beta-cells...

OBJECTIVES: To describe the characteristics of hypertensive urgencies at the emergency department, as well as the variables associated with early re-admission (<7 days) and re-admission at one month (<30 days). METHODS: We conducted a descriptive, retrospective study of all patients who were admitted to the emergency department of a third level hospital during 2013. Subsequently, a case-control analysis was performed to analyze the group of patients with readmission...

PURPOSE: Mammoplasty removes random samples of breast tissue from asymptomatic women providing a unique method for evaluating background prevalence of breast pathology in normal population. Our goal was to identify the rate of atypical breast lesions and cancers in women of various ages in the largest mammoplasty cohort reported to date. METHODS: We analyzed pathologic reports from patients undergoing bilateral mammoplasty, using natural language processing algorithm, verified by human review...

A bio-inspired, simple, and versatile diffusion-driven method to fabricate complex tubular hydrogels is reported. The controlled diffusion of small ions from a pre-designed core hydrogel through a biopolymer reservoir solution causes the self-gelation of biopolymers with an anisotropic ordered structure on the surface of the core hydrogel. By controlling the concentration, diffusion time, and flow direction of the ions, as well as the size and shape of the core, various types of complex tubular-shaped hydrogels with well-defined 3D architectures were fabricated...

PURPOSE: Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) is a pre-invasive lesion of the breast. We sought to define its genomic landscape, whether intra-lesion genetic heterogeneity is present in LCIS, and the clonal relatedness between LCIS and invasive breast cancers. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: We reanalyzed whole-exome sequencing (WES) data and performed a targeted amplicon sequencing validation of mutations identified in 43 LCIS and 27 synchronous more clinically-advanced lesions from 24 patients (nine ductal carcinomas in situ (DCIS), 13 invasive lobular carcinomas (ILCs) and five invasive ductal carcinomas (IDCs))...

INTRODUCTION: Women who have pathogenic mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are at greatly increased risks for breast and ovarian cancers. Although risk-reduction strategies can be undertaken by these women, knowledge regarding the uptake of these strategies is limited. Additionally, the healthcare behaviours of women who receive inconclusive test results are not known. This study protocol describes the creation of a retrospective cohort of women who have undergone genetic testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2 , linking genetic test results with administrative data to quantify the uptake of risk-reduction strategies and to assess long-term cancer and non-cancer outcomes after genetic testing...

PURPOSE: To measure alterations in orbital blood flow parameters using color Doppler imaging (CDI) before and after orbital decompression in patients with moderate to severe thyroid eye disease (TED). METHODS: Resistance index (RI) and maximum and minimum velocity of ophthalmic artery (OA), superior ophthalmic vein (SOV), and central retinal artery (CRA) of 24 eyes (14 patients) with TED were measured before and at least 3 months after cosmetic orbital decompression procedure (single or double walls) using CDI...

BACKGROUND: Guidelines for venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis are not well-established for breast surgery patients. An individualized VTE prophylaxis protocol using the Caprini score was adopted at our institution for patients undergoing mastectomy ± implant-based reconstruction. In this study, we report our experience during the first year of implementation. METHODS: In August 2016, we adopted a VTE prophylaxis protocol for patients undergoing mastectomy ± implant-based reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: Optimal margin width for breast-conserving therapy (BCT) after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is unknown. We sought to determine the impact of margin width on local recurrence and survival after NAC and BCT. METHODS: Patients treated with NAC and BCT for stage I-III breast cancer from 2002 to 2014 were identified. Multivariate Cox regression was performed to determine the relationship between margin width and local recurrence free-survival (LRFS), disease-free survival (DFS), and overall survival (OS)...

BACKGROUND: Dietary patterns defined using principal component analysis (PCA) offer an alternative to the analysis of individual foods and nutrients and have been linked with asthma and allergic disease. However, results have not been reproducible in different settings. OBJECTIVE: To identify dietary patterns common to different European countries and examine their associations with asthma and allergic symptoms. METHODS: In sixteen study centers in nine European countries, 3206 individuals aged 15-77 years completed a common, internationally validated, food frequency questionnaire and a respiratory symptoms questionnaire...

BACKGROUND: For clinically appropriate early-stage breast cancer patients, reflex criteria for Oncotype DX ordering ("the intervention") were implemented at our comprehensive cancer center, which reduced time-to-adjuvant chemotherapy initiation. Our objective was to evaluate Oncotype DX ordering practices and chemotherapy use before and after implementation of the intervention. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We examined medical records for 498 patients who had definitive breast cancer surgery at our center...

Biologists have long been fascinated with the organization and function of intricate protein complexes. Therefore, techniques for precisely imaging protein complexes and the location of proteins within these complexes are critically important and often require multidisciplinary collaboration. A challenge in these explorations is the limited resolution of conventional light microscopy. However, a new microscopic technique has circumvented this resolution limit by making the biological sample larger, thus allowing for super-resolution of the enlarged structure...
