OBJECTIVE: To estimate the intergenerational association in teenage pregnancy, and whether there is a coupling tendency between a mother and daughter in how their teen pregnancies end, such as an induced abortion (IA) vs. a livebirth. DESIGN: Population-based cohort study. SETTING: Ontario, Canada. POPULATION: 15,097 mothers and their 16,177 daughters. METHODS: Generalized estimating equations generated adjusted odds ratios (aOR) of a daughter experiencing a teen pregnancy in relation to the number of teen pregnancies her mother had...

AIMS: The aim of this study was to design a set of primers for specific detection and identification of Streptococcus agalactiae in polymerase chain reaction (PCR) that can detect a diverse range of S. agalactiae isolates from different hosts and that it is capable of discriminating between S. agalactiae and other species that are closely related or potentially present in aquaculture environments, notably Streptococcus iniae. METHODS AND RESULTS: Primers, based on the groEL2 gene of S...

BACKGROUND: Alcohol use disorders (AUDs) are influenced by complex interactions between the genetics of the individual and their environment. We have previously identified hundreds of polygenic genetic variants between the selectively bred high and low alcohol drinking (HAD and LAD) rat lines. Here we report allele specific expression (ASE) differences, between the HAD2 and LAD2 rat lines. METHODS: The HAD2 and LAD2 rats which have been sequenced were reciprocally crossed to generate 10 litters of F1 progeny...

Ammonia is recognised as a major pollutant worldwide, originating from natural and anthropogenic sources. Studies have reported that freshwater mussels are amongst the most sensitive taxa to ammonia, but there is a lack of data available on ammonia toxicity for the early life stages of freshwater mussels from tropical regions. This paper reports the modification of a 24-h acute toxicity test protocol for tropical freshwater mussels and application of the test using ammonia. Velesunio spp. from three different sites were used to assess the toxicity of ammonia at a targeted pH of 6...

OBJECTIVE: Introduction: According to the 2003 WHO report, dental caries affects from 60% to 90% of school-age children and adults that makes it one of the most common diseases worldwide. The aim was to systematize data about the modern conception of plaque formation and role of microorganisms in its development. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Materials and methods: Biblosemantic, 50 medical literature sources were systematically reviewed as the material for the research...

OBJECTIVE: Introduction: Medical researchers, who are non-native English speakers, are facing now the growing need to publish their research results in international journals switching to an English-only policy, to apply for grants and scholarship, but at the same time this puts many authors whose native language is not English at a disadvantage compared to their English-speaking counterparts. The aim: This paper aims at analysing the existing parameters of academic writing proficiency of medical undergraduate and postgraduate students; elucidating current approaches to develop academic writing competency and to promote academic multi-literacy of junior researchers, and outlining the general recommendations to improve the quality and sophistication of their writing by incorporating the principles and achievements of academic writing pedagogy into the system of medical training...

This manuscript summarizes 20 years of research from my laboratories at the University of Pittsburgh and, more recently, at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute in Vail, Colorado. The discovery of muscle-derived stem cells (MDSCs) did not arise from a deliberate search to find a novel population of muscle cells with high regenerative potential, but instead was conceived in response to setbacks encountered while working in muscle cell transplantation for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD)...

BACKGROUND: Fabry disease is caused by a deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme α-galactosidase, resulting in progressive accumulation of globotriaosylceramide (GL-3). The disease can manifest early during childhood and adolescence. Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) with recombinant human α-galactosidase is the first specific treatment for Fabry disease and has been available in Europe since 2001. This paper presents the findings of a systematic literature review of clinical outcomes with ERT in paediatric patients with Fabry disease...

This article examines the narrative strategies through which Polish migrants in the UK challenge the formal rights of political membership and attempt to redefine the boundaries of 'citizenship' along notions of deservedness. The analysed qualitative data originate from an online survey conducted in the months before the 2016 EU referendum, and the narratives emerge from the open-text answers to two survey questions concerning attitudes towards the referendum and the exclusion of resident EU nationals from the electoral process...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic autoimmune disease with severe joint inflammation and destruction associated with an inflammatory environment. The etiology behind RA remains to be elucidated; most updated concepts include the participation of environmental, proteomic, epigenetic, and genetic factors. Epigenetic is considered the missing link to explain genetic diversification among RA patients. Within epigenetic factors participating in RA, miRNAs are defined as small noncoding molecules with a length of approximately 22 nucleotides, capable of gene expression modulation, either negatively through inhibition of translation and degradation of the mRNA or positively through increasing the translation rate...

The original version of this Article contained an error in the last sentence of the second paragraph of the 'Atmospheric rarefaction effects' section of the Results, which incorrectly read 'The other one emulates the rarefied, CO2 -rich Martian atmosphere (μ♂ = 1.3 × 10-5 N s m-2 ) at 6.9 mbar and 210 K, which gives ρ♂ = 1.6 × 10-12 kg m-3 .' The correct version states 'ρ♂ = 1.6 × 10-2 kg m-3 ' in place of 'ρ♂ = 1.6 × 10-12 kg m-3 '. This has been corrected in both the PDF and HTML versions of the Article...

During αβ T cell development in the thymus, migration of newly selected CD4+ and CD8+ thymocytes into medullary areas enables tolerance mechanisms to purge the newly selected αβ TCR repertoire of autoreactive specificities. Thymic dendritic cells (DC) play key roles in this process and consist of three distinct subsets that differ in their developmental origins. Thus, plasmacytoid DC and Sirpα+ conventional DC type 2 are extrathymically derived and enter into the thymus via their respective expression of the chemokine receptors CCR9 and CCR2...

The surface ECG is a valuable mapping tool in patients with idiopathic and scar-related ventricular arrhythmias (VAs). A detailed analysis of 12-lead ECG can provide useful information in localizing the VA site of origin. This might help tailoring the ablation strategy to optimize procedural duration, increase the probability of success, and prevent complications. The aim of this article is to review the ECG features of both idiopathic and scar-related VAs and discuss their potential implications for optimizing the ablation strategy...

Wide complex tachycardia may represent a challenge for correct interpretation of standard electrocardiogram, which is crucial for proper patient management. For this reason, algorithms based on electrocardiographic criteria have been developed to guide interpretation in a step-by-step approach. Despite their greater accuracy, some cases of wide QRS complex tachycardia are a challenge. Some peculiar forms of ventricular tachycardia, and complex supraventricular substrate or particular clinical condition, may originate a challenging electrocardiographic pattern...
