It has been the dream of many scientists and engineers to realize a non-contact remote sensing system that can perform continuous, accurate and long-term monitoring of human vital signs as we have seen in many Sci-Fi movies. Having an intelligible sensor system that can measure and record key vital signs (such as heart rates and respiration rates) remotely and continuously without touching the patients, for example, can be an invaluable tool for physicians who need to make rapid life-and-death decisions. Such a sensor system can also effectively help physicians and patients making better informed decisions when patients' long-term vital signs data is available...

Regulation of agriculture irrigation water discharges in California is assessed and controlled by its nine Regional Water Quality Control Boards under the jurisdiction of the California State Water Resources Control Board. Each Regional Water Board has developed programs to control pesticides in runoff as part of the waste discharge requirements implemented through each Region's Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program. This study assessed how pesticide use patterns differ in the Imperial (Imperial County), Salinas and Santa Maria (Monterey County) valleys, which host three of California's prime agriculture areas...

Specific diagnostic markers are the key to effective diagnosis and treatment of inborn errors of metabolism (IEM). Untargeted metabolomics allows for the identification of potential novel diagnostic biomarkers. Current separation techniques coupled to high-resolution mass spectrometry provide a powerful tool for structural elucidation of unknown compounds in complex biological matrices. This is a proof-of-concept study testing this methodology to determine the molecular structure of as yet uncharacterized m/z signals that were significantly increased in plasma samples from patients with phenylketonuria and 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA lyase deficiency...

INTRODUCTION: Currently used tools for breast cancer prognostication and prediction may not adequately reflect a young patient's prognosis or likely treatment benefit because they were not adequately validated in young patients. Since breast cancers diagnosed at a young age are considered prognostically unfavourable, many treatment guidelines recommend adjuvant systemic treatment for all young patients. Patients cured by locoregional treatment alone are, therefore, overtreated. Lack of prognosticators for young breast cancer patients represents an unmet medical need and has led to the initiation of the PAtients with bReAst cancer DIaGnosed preMenopausally (PARADIGM) initiative...

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and stroke are unanticipated major healthcare events that require emergent and expensive care. Given the potential financial implications of AMI and stroke among uninsured patients, we sought to evaluate rates of catastrophic healthcare expenditures (CHEs), defined as expenses beyond financial means, in a period before the implementation of insurance expansion and protections in the Affordable Care Act.(1).

In 2016, NL's largest RHA was faced with serious challenges stemming from the discovery of stained surgical instruments at its two largest hospitals. This discovery prompted a series of postponed surgeries, an extensive internal mobilization of labour and the purchase of millions of dollars of new equipment. In tackling these challenges, the organization not only acquired a better understanding of its surgical tools, but it also gained renewed appreciation for the resilience of its human resources. By describing this incident and the lessons learned, we hope to offer insight to providers in similar circumstances...

While the short-term implications of acute kidney injury (AKI) have been known for many years, far less attention has been paid to the health of AKI survivors. This was perhaps fueled by a prevailing wisdom that if a patient was fortunate enough to survive the primary illness associated with AKI, the prognosis for future health was auspicious. More recently, this dogma was challenged by data suggesting that after an episode of AKI, patients remain at risk of experiencing multiple adverse health outcomes. Greater recognition and appreciation of the risks faced by AKI survivors have led to the development of quality improvement initiatives that are supposed to enrich this vulnerable population...

The aim of this study was to compare i) the physiological responses following cold-water immersion (CWI) and partial-body cryotherapy (PBC) and ii) the effects on recovery following a muscle-damaging protocol (5 x 20 drop jumps). Nineteen healthy males were randomly allocated into either a CWI (10 °C for 10 min; n = 9) or a PBC (-60 °C for 30 sec, -135 °C for 2 min; n = 10) group. The physiological variables (thigh muscle oxygen saturation [SmO2 ], cutaneous vascular conductance [CVC], mean-arterial pressure [MAP] and local skin temperature) were assessed immediately prior and up to 60 min post-treatment (10 min intervals)...

Adenosine deaminase acting on RNA 1 (ADAR1) is the master RNA editor, catalyzing the deamination of adenosine to inosine. RNA editing is vital for preventing abnormal activation of cytosolic nucleic acid sensing pathways by self-double-stranded RNAs. Here we determine, by parallel analysis of RNA secondary structure sequencing (PARS-seq), the global RNA secondary structure changes in ADAR1 deficient cells. Surprisingly, ADAR1 silencing resulted in a lower global double-stranded to single-stranded RNA ratio, suggesting that A-to-I editing can stabilize a large subset of imperfect RNA duplexes...

BACKGROUND: Traditional study design submitted to the Food and Drug Administration to test newer drug-eluting stents (DES) for marketing approval is the prospective randomized controlled trial. However, several DES have extensive clinical data from trials conducted outside the United States that have led to utilization of a novel design using the Bayesian approach. This design was proposed for testing DES with bioresorbable polymer compared with DES most commonly in use today that use durable polymers for drug elution...

Retinal degeneration is a leading cause of blindness in developed countries. Stem cells can be differentiated into retinal organoids to study mechanisms of retinal degeneration, develop therapeutic agents, and potentially serve as replacement tissues. The spherical nature of these retinoids limits their utility, because the investigator lacks ready access to both sides of the neo-tissue. For tissue-replacement, spherical retinoids are unable to interact simultaneously with the host retinal pigment epithelium and remaining neurosensory retina...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Patients on parenteral nutrition for short bowel syndrome (SBS) have a high risk of thrombotic complications and are often treated with parenteral anticoagulation. Direct oral anticoagulants are absorbed proximally in the digestive tract and may represent alternative regimens in selected SBS patients. In our pilot study, we provided pharmacokinetics parameters of dabigatran etexilate and rivaroxaban in this setting and compared peak (Cmax), trough (Ctrough) concentrations, and areas-under-the-concentration-time-curve (AUC0-t) to reference values retrieved from phase I-III studies...
