CONTROVERSY AND CONTEXT: two words that exemplified this year's ISEH meeting. Leaders in the field of hematology from around the world gathered in San Diego in August 2016 to discuss cutting edge research on diverse topics, such as hemoglobin switching, HSC emergence, leukemogenesis, and aging. Major questions discussed included the "when, where, and how" of hematopoietic emergence, bone marrow residence, and disease origination. This meeting summary covers some of the conference highlights.

BACKGROUND: Pre-eclampsia (PE) prediction based on blood pressure, presence of protein in the urine, symptoms and laboratory test abnormalities can result in false-positive diagnoses. This may lead to unnecessary antenatal admissions and preterm delivery. Blood tests that measure placental growth factor (PlGF) or the ratio of soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase 1 (sFlt-1) to PlGF could aid prediction of PE if either were added to routine clinical assessment or used as a replacement for proteinuria testing...

BACKGROUND: Malnutrition is common among congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) survivors and may result from elevated respiratory effort. We evaluated body mass index (BMI), measured resting energy expenditure (mREE) and pulmonary function test (PFT) results in children and adolescents with CDH to determine if there is a correlation. METHODS: With ethics approval (REB# 1000035323), anthropometrics, indirect calorimetry (IC) results and PFTs were collected from patients 5-17years of age during CDH clinic visits between 2000 and 2016...

Animal feeding is the most important economic component of beef production systems. Selection for feed efficiency has not been effective mainly due to difficult and high costs to obtain the phenotypes. The application of genomic selection using SNP can decrease the cost of animal evaluation as well as the generation interval. The objective of this study was to compare methods for genomic evaluation of feed efficiency traits using different cross-validation layouts in an experimental beef cattle population genotyped for a high-density SNP panel (BovineHD BeadChip assay 700k, Illumina Inc...

Various lines of evidence suggest that brain bioenergetics and mitochondrial function may be altered in schizophrenia. On the basis of prior phosphorus-31 ((31)P)-magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), post-mortem and preclinical studies, this study was designed to test the hypothesis that abnormal glycolysis leads to elevated lactate concentrations in subjects with schizophrenia. The high sensitivity of 7 Tesla proton ((1)H)-MRS was used to measure brain lactate levels in vivo. Twenty-nine controls and 27 participants with schizophrenia completed the study...

Marine microbes mediate key ecological processes in kelp forest ecosystems and interact with macroalgae. Pelagic and biofilm-associated microbes interact with macroalgal propagules at multiple stages of recruitment, yet these interactions have not been described for Macrocystis pyrifera. Here we investigate the influence of microbes from coastal environments on recruitment of giant kelp, M. pyrifera. Through repeated laboratory experiments, we tested the effects of altered pelagic microbial abundance on the settlement and development of the microscopic propagules of M...

BACKGROUND: Bronchiectasis is frequent in smokers with COPD, however there is only limited data on objective assessments of this process. OBJECTIVE: To objectively assess bronchovascular morphology, calculate the ratio of the diameters of bronchial lumen and adjacent artery (BA ratio), and identify those measurements able to discriminate bronchiectasis. METHODS: We collected quantitative computed tomography (QCT) measures of BA ratios, peak wall attenuation, wall thickness (WT), wall area, and wall area percent (WA%) at matched 4(th)-6(th) airway generations in 21 ever smokers with bronchiectasis (cases) and 21 never-smoking controls (control airways)...

This article discusses the most interesting presentations at Digestive Disease Week, held in San Diego, in the field of functional and motor gastrointestinal disorders. One of the most important contributions was undoubtedly the presentation of the new Rome IV diagnostic criteria for functional gastrointestinal disorders. We therefore devote some space in this article to explaining these new criteria in the most common functional disorders. In fact, there has already been discussion of data comparing Rome IV and Rome III criteria in the diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome, confirming that the new criteria are somewhat more restrictive...

Suicidal behaviors are serious public health problems. The prominent association of mood disorders with suicide, along with the renaissance of the spectrum concept of psychiatric disorders in the recent decades, prioritizes the investigation of temperament variants in suicidal individuals. This study aimed to explore the relationship between affective temperaments and nonviolent suicide attempts. We administered Temperament Evaluation of the Memphis, Pisa, Paris, and San Diego Auto questionnaire (TEMPS-A) to 141 (27 males and 114 females) consecutive self-poisoning non-lethal suicide attempters at a Medical Toxicology Center and a sex and age matched group of healthy individuals (28 males, 112 females)...

BACKGROUND: There is considerable push to improve value in health care by simultaneously increasing quality while lowering or containing costs. However, for diseases that are best treated with comparatively expensive treatments, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), there could be tension between these aims. In this study, we measured geographic variation in quality, access, and cost for patients with RA, a disease with effective but costly specialty treatments. OBJECTIVE: To assess the geographic differences in the quality, access, and cost of care for patients with RA...

Suspensory femoral fixation of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) grafts with fixed loop button and variable loop button devices has gained popularity for ACL reconstruction. This study examined these 2 methods of fixation to determine their effect on graft laxity and patient-reported outcome scores. A database search was performed to identify patients who had undergone ACL reconstruction with either a fixed loop or a variable loop button technique performed by the primary surgeon. Lysholm, Tegner, and 12-Item Short Form Health Survey scores were obtained, and KT-1000 knee ligament arthrometer (MEDmetric, San Diego, California) mechanical knee testing was performed...
