In this study, we investigated the glycoproteomics of glycated milk casein (GMC) and GMC fermented by Lactobacillus casei 4B15 (FGMC), and determined their biological implications. There was a significant increase in the antioxidative and anti-inflammatory activities of GMC with galactose, which was higher than that of GMC with glucose (GMC-glc). Further, the fermentation of GMC by Lactobacillus casei 4B15 synergistically enhanced the above activities compared to those of unfermented GMC. Especially, fermented GMC-glc (FGMC-glc) possessed remarkably improved reducing power and radical scavenging activities...

Siddharth Maroo, Dipak Raj
Junior Doctors working on the Orthopaedic wards at a district general hospital identified the lack of a formal weekend handover. The Royal Colleges,GMC and Foundation Programme curriculum all emphasise the importance of a safe and effective handover. Doctors found that the current system of using a written, paper-based handover was unreliable, un-legible, and inefficient. Baseline measurements were sought in the form of a questionnaire which allowed us to obtain the limitations to the current handover. After this and a focus group, a new electronic, 'Microsoft Word' based handover was created and a repeat surgery issued in 2 weeks...

INTRODUCTION: The General Medical Council (GMC) of the UK states that doctors have a duty to train and contribute to the education of colleagues, and that those involved in formal clinical teaching should have a teaching qualification. OBJECTIVES: We sought to evaluate the current levels of engagement of surgical trainees and recently appointed surgical consultants in clinical teaching. METHODS: All trainees who commenced a basic or higher surgical training post during or after 2007 were invited to participate...

Agricultural soil was treated with biochar (5% w/w) produced from two pyrolysis temperatures (400 and 700 °C) of giant Miscanthus (GMC-400 and GMC-700, respectively), and the subsequent sorption of sulfathiazole (STZ) was evaluated as a function of pH (2, 5, and 7) and aging period (0, 3, and 6 months). Because sorption was nonlinear, with 0.51 < N < 0.75, the linearized sorption coefficient (K d(*)) was used for the comparison across samples. The K d(*) of GMC-400 treatment (3.96-9.96 L kg(-1)) was higher than that of GMC-700 treatment (1...

BACKGROUND: Pneumococcal vaccines, including pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV) and pneumococcal conjugated vaccine (PCV), are important in preventing invasive pneumococcal disease. We analyzed the pneumococcal vaccination rate, efficacy and durability in patients with heterotaxy. METHODS: All patients with heterotaxy and CCHD who were followed at our institution between 2010 and 2015 were included. Pneumococcal vaccine status and geometric mean concentration (GMC) of serotypes 6B, 14, 19F, and 23F were analyzed...

Dually-registered specialists in oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) may be subject to disciplinary hearings by the General Medical Council (GMC) and the General Dental Council (GDC) for the same allegations, a phenomenon referred to as "double jeopardy" within the specialty. Previous efforts by both councils to simplify regulatory arrangements have made little progress. We have therefore reviewed the range and scope of fitness to practise (FTP) proceedings relevant to OMFS. We searched the online GMC register to find registered OMFS specialists and obtained FTP proceedings from 2004-2016 through a Freedom of Information request from the GDC...

Angiosperm male reproductive organs (anthers and pollen grains) have complex and interesting morphological features, but mechanisms that underlie their patterning are poorly understood. Here we report the isolation and characterization of a male sterile mutant of No Pollen 1 (NP1) in rice (Oryza sativa). The np1-4 mutant exhibited smaller anthers with a smooth cuticle surface, abnormal Ubisch bodies, and aborted pollen grains covered with irregular exine. Wild-type exine has two continuous layers; but np1-4 exine showed a discontinuous structure with large granules of varying size...

BACKGROUND: The demographics of doctors working in the UK are changing. The United Kingdom (UK) has voted to leave the European Union (EU) and there is heightened political discourse around the world about the impact of migration on healthcare services. Previous work suggests that foreign trained doctors perform worse than UK graduates in postgraduate medical examinations. We analysed the prevalence by country of primary medical qualification of doctors who were required to take an assessment by the General Medical Council (GMC) because of performance concerns...

Gluteal muscle contracture (GMC) is a clinical syndrome characterized by gait abnormality and limb dysfunction, as well as secondary deformities of pelvis and femur. Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) typically could be diagnosed on the basis of computed tomography (CT) such as the equatorial-edge angle (EE angle), but it did not work well in GMC patients. In this study, we retrospected all image data and found small EE angles in GMCs, which meant retroverted acetabulum; however, none of them showed no symptoms and signs of FAI...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: To explore whether the immunization with high-dose (60μg) hepatitis B vaccines in patients receiving methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) could yield a superior protection against hepatitis B infection than did the standard dose (20μg). METHODS: We conducted a randomized, double-blinded, parallel-controlled trial in MMT patients. Patients with serologically negative hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) and hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs) were randomized in a ratio of 1:1 to receive three intramuscular injections of 20μg or 60μg recombinant hepatitis B vaccine at months 0, 1, and 6...

Huanping An, Wanzhong Ge, Yongmei Xi, Xiaohang Yang
In the Drosophila larval brain, type I and type II neuroblasts (NBs) undergo a series of asymmetric divisions which give rise to distinct progeny lineages. The intermediate neural progenitors (INPs) exist only in type II NB lineages. In this study, we reveal a novel function of Inscuteable (Insc) that acts to maintain type I NB lineage identity. In insc type I NB clones of mosaic analyses with a repressible cell marker (MARCM), the formation of extra Deadpan (Dpn)(+) NB-like and GMC-like cells is observed. The lack of Insc leads to the defective localization and segregation of Numb during asymmetric cell division...

BACKGROUND: International medical graduates working in the UK are more likely to be censured in relation to fitness to practise compared to home graduates. Performance on the General Medical Council's (GMC's) Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) tests and English fluency have previously been shown to predict later educational performance in this group of doctors. It is unknown whether the PLAB system is also a valid predictor of unprofessional behaviour and malpractice...

BACKGROUND: Gluteal muscle contracture (GMC), a debilitating disease, usually starts in early childhood after variable dose of injections around the buttock, if left untreated it worsens gradually and persists throughout the life. Because the disease mostly affects adolescents and adults, there is always an aesthetic concerns. Purposeof the study was to introduce the arthroscopic F and C method of GMC release, and to compare its clinical efficiency with conventional open surgery in terms of clinical outcome, rate of complications, patient's satisfactions, and recurrence...
