#1
Alessia Pagnotta, Giorgio Antonietti, Iakov Molayem
Posttraumatic radioulnar synostosis (RUS) is a rare event following forearm fractures. Consequences are disabling for patients who suffer from functional limitation in forearm pronosupination. Distal RUS are even more rare and more difficult to treat because of high recurrence rates. The patient we describe in this paper came to our attention with a double distal RUS recurrence and a Darrach procedure already performed. We performed a radical excision of RUS and interposition with a vascularized dorsoulnar artery (DUA) adipofascial perforator flap...

Traditionally, arthrocentesis involves insertion of 2 needles into the joint space of which one acts as an inflow port and the other as the outflow port. These 2 needles must triangulate and be exactly placed in the upper joint space for the procedure to be effective. Due to the difficulty in maintaining the needle position, single-puncture arthrocentesis is gaining popularity. It is relatively easier to perform and less traumatic to the joint. The authors describe a simple technique of single-puncture arthrocentesis using parts of 2 peripheral intravenous catheters of different gauges...

Persistent hyperglycaemia coupled with inflammation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy (DN). Present study examined the therapeutic potential of taraxerol isolated from the methanol extract of Abroma augusta leaf against DN using rodent model of type 2 diabetes (T2D). T2D was experimentally induced by high fat diet and a single low-single dose of streptozotocin (35mg/kg, i.p.). Accumulation of serum creatinine, urea, and uric acid, activation of lactate dehydrogenase and creatinin kinase, and release of urinary albumin represented the glomerular damage and the progression of nephropathy in T2D rats...

Objective: To describe the process of manufacturing and validation of an educational booklet for HIV/Aids prevention in older adults. Methods: Methodological study developed in two phases - manufacturing of the booklet and validation of the educational material by judges. The manufacturing process involved a situational diagnosis with older adults, and its result indicated gaps in the knowledge with respect to HIV/Aids. The validation process was performed by nine judges, selected by convenience...

Background: QRS fragmentation (fQRS) is classically defined as the presence of slurred QRS morphology in at least two contiguous leads, and its prognostic importance has been shown in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). However, no study has investigated the significance of single lead fQRS (sl-fQRS) in surface electrocardiography (ECG). Objectives: To evaluate whether sl-fQRS is as valuable as classical fQRS in patients with acute STEMI who had successful revascularization with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI)...

The goals of the TFOS DEWS II Definition and Classification Subcommittee were to create an evidence-based definition and a contemporary classification system for dry eye disease (DED). The new definition recognizes the multifactorial nature of dry eye as a disease where loss of homeostasis of the tear film is the central pathophysiological concept. Ocular symptoms, as a broader term that encompasses reports of discomfort or visual disturbance, feature in the definition and the key etiologies of tear film instability, hyperosmolarity, and ocular surface inflammation and damage were determined to be important for inclusion in the definition...

BACKGROUND&AIMS: The bile salt export pump (BSEP, ABCB11), multidrug resistance protein 3 (MDR3, ABCB4) and the ATPase familial intrahepatic cholestasis 1 (FIC1, ATP8B1) mediate bile formation. Mutations in these genes underlie cholestatic liver diseases ranging from intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy, benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis or low phospholipid-associated cholelithiasis to progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis. METHODS: Coding exons with flanking intron regions of ATP8B1, ABCB11, and ABCB4 were sequenced in cholestatic patients with assumed genetic cause...

Ashima Dua, Rani Gupta
The HSL-like lipase encoding gene (Blip) from the polyextremophile Bacillus halodurans C-125 has been heterologously expressed in E.coli BL21(DE3). The enzyme is a monomer of ~42 kDa. It has extremely high thermal stability with a t 1/2 of 35 min at 100 °C. Thermal denaturation/renaturation studies by CD and fluorescence analysis revealed complete refolding of the protein back to its native conformation even after 30 min at 90 °C. Blip prefers substrates with mid to long chain fatty acids. It has a higher catalytic efficiency on para-nitrophenyl fatty acyl esters as opposed to triacylglycerides (k cat/K m with pNP-palmitate as a substrate was 2...
