Cardiac arrest (CA) is one of the most prominent causes of morbidity and mortality in adults. Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) is a recommended treatment to improve survival and functional outcome following CA, however, it is unclear what degree of TH is most beneficial. It has been suggested that TH of 33°C provides no survival or outcome benefits over TH of 36°C. Additionally, there is a lack of verified objective quantitative prognostic tools for comatose CA patients under TH. In this study, we calculated three quantitative markers of somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP) to examine their potential to track recovery in the early period following CA under graded TH...

Meretrix meretrix oligopeptides (MMO) derived from shellfish have important medicinal properties. We previously obtained MMO from alcalase by hydrolysis processes. Here we examine the protective effects of MMO against nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and explored the underlying mechanism. Human Chang liver cells were used in our experiments after exposure to palmitic acid at a final concentration of 15 μg/mL for 48 h to induce an overload of fatty acid as NAFLD model cells. Treatment with MMO for 24 h increased the viability of the NAFLD model cells by inhibiting apoptosis...

New therapies are needed to eradicate androgen resistant, prostate cancer. Prostate cancer usually metastasizes to bone where the concentration of calcium is high, making Ca(2+) a promising toxin. Ionophores can deliver metal cations into cells, but are currently too toxic for human use. We synthesized a new rotaxane (CEHR2) that contains a benzyl 15-crown-5 ether as a blocking group to efficiently bind Ca(2+). CEHR2 transfers Ca(2+) from an aqueous solution into CHCl3 to greater extent than alkali metal cations and Mg(2+)...

Thaumarchaeota have been detected in several industrial and municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), despite the fact that ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) are thought to be adapted to low ammonia environments. However, the activity, physiology and metabolism of WWTP-associated AOA remain poorly understood. We report the cultivation and complete genome sequence of Candidatus Nitrosocosmicus exaquare, a novel AOA representative from a municipal WWTP in Guelph, Ontario (Canada). In enrichment culture, Ca...

BACKGROUND: The progression of cervical kyphosis due to injury to the facet joints and musculature is a major concern for posterior foraminotomy especially for patients with cervical lordosis of less than 10°. However, cervical hypo-lordosis (cervical lordosis < 10°) may be improved with the alleviation of pain and muscle spasms, which corresponds with the disappearance of a positive Spurling's test. When surgery is necessary, the spontaneous recovery of cervical curvature may be minimally offset using minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as posterior percutaneous endoscopic cervical foraminotomy (P-PECF)...

Compartmental models for evaluation of dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) datasets assume a homogeneous interstitital volume distribution and homogeneous contrast agent (CA) distribution within each compartment, neglecting effects of CA diffusion within the compartments. When necrotic or micronecrotic tumor tissue is present, these assumptions may no longer be valid. Therefore, the present study investigates the validity of three compartmental models in assessing tumors with necrotic components...
