We study the wavelength shift of the Čerenkov light - generated in the ionic liquid (BMIMCl) - caused by the addition of the highly fluorescent ionic liquid (BMIMHPTS). (18)F and (32)P efficiencies increases up to 124% and 14%, respectively, compared with the values obtained with pure BMIMCl. With this improvement, ionic liquid mixtures become a good alternative - when using the TDCR-Cherenkov technique - to standardize radionuclides having electron emissions energies close to the threshold energy in water (∼ 260keV)...

INTRODUCTION: Vaccine acceptance is a critical component of sustainable immunization programs, yet rates of vaccine hesitancy are rising. Increased access to misinformation through media and anti-vaccine advocacy is an important contributor to hesitancy in the United States and other high-income nations with robust immunization programs. Little is known about the content and effect of information sources on attitudes toward vaccination in settings with rapidly changing or unstable immunization programs...

The trematode Fasciola hepatica is responsible for chronic zoonotic infection globally. Despite causing a potent T-helper 2 response, it is believed that potent immunomodulation is responsible for rendering this host reactive non-protective host response thereby allowing the parasite to remain long-lived. We have previously identified a growth factor, FhTLM, belonging to the TGF superfamily can have developmental effects on the parasite. Herein we demonstrate that FhTLM can exert influence over host immune functions in a host receptor specific fashion...

In the JAPA supplement (JAPA 24[Suppl.], June 2016), which contained the abstracts for the 9th World Congress on Active Ageing, an incorrect abstract appears on page S102. This abstract, "An Australian Unique Way of Addressing the Research-Selling Health and Wellness to the Over 60s with Active Life Weekends", by B. Lord, was a duplicate of an earlier printed abstract. The correct abstract appears below. We apologize for this error. The online version has been corrected.

The transcription factor NFAT1 and the oncogene MDM2 have crucial roles in breast cancer development, progression, and metastasis. We have recently discovered that NFAT1 activates MDM2 expression. Here, we identified a small molecule (named Inulanolide A) that dually inhibited both NFAT1 and MDM2 in breast cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. Unlike conventional MDM2 inhibitors, Inulanolide A (InuA) exerted its selective anticancer activity in both p53-dependent and -independent manners. InuA decreased cell proliferation and induced G2/M phase arrest and apoptosis in breast cancer cells; it also led to a decrease in MDM2, NFAT1 and proteins associated with cell proliferation, and an increase in apoptotic signal related proteins...

Atrial myxomas are the commonest benign primary tumours of the heart. They are generally 2 to 6 cm in size. Depending on their size and site may result in mitral valve obstruction which may lead to pulmonary hypertension. Clinical symptoms may suggest the presence of a myxoma but echocardiography is the mainstay of diagnosis and confirmation is by histopathology. A well-formed, organized thrombus is a common differential. The report of an unusually large left atrial myxoma that occurred in a 54-year-old male causing mitral valve obstruction and pulmonary hypertension is presented here...

Transcription factor NFAT1 has been recently identified as a new regulator of the MDM2 oncogene. Targeting the NFAT1-MDM2 pathway represents a novel approach to cancer therapy. We have recently identified a natural product MDM2 inhibitor, termed JapA. As a specific and potent MDM2 inhibitor, JapA inhibits MDM2 at transcriptional and post-translational levels. However, the molecular mechanism remains to be fully elucidated for its inhibitory effects on MDM2 transcription. Herein, we reported that JapA inhibited NFAT1 and NFAT1-mediated MDM2 transcription, which contributed to the anticancer activity of JapA...

BACKGROUND: BRAF V600E mutation is associated with poor prognosis in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). PTC is often multifocal, and there are no guidelines on how many tumors to test for BRAF mutation in multifocal PTC. METHODS: Fifty-seven separate formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded PTCs from twenty-seven patients were manually macrodissected and tested for BRAF mutation using a commercial allele-specific real-time polymerase chain reaction-based assay (Entrogen, Woodland Hills, CA)...

The helminth Fasciola hepatica causes fasciolosis throughout the world, a major disease of livestock and an emerging zoonotic disease in humans. Sustainable control mechanisms such as vaccination are urgently required. To discover potential vaccine targets we undertook a genome screen to identify members of the transforming growth factor (TGF) family of proteins. Herein we describe the discovery of three ligands belonging to this superfamily and the cloning and characterisation of an activin/TGF like molecule we term FhTLM...

BACKGROUND: Obesity increases risk of premature disease, and may be associated with unfavorable lifestyle changes that add to risk. This study analyzed the association of midlife BMI change with current lifestyle patterns among multiethnic men. METHODS: Men aged 40-60 years (n=9864) retrospectively reported body weight between ages 20-40 years and current dietary, TV, physical activity and sleep practices in the Adventist Health Study II, a study of church-goers in the US and Canada...

The fine tuning of porosity in sol gel based devices makes possible the design of novel applications in which the transport of molecules through the oxide gel plays a crucial role. In this work we develop a new method for the simultaneous analysis of diffusion and adsorption of small diffusing probes, as anionic and cationic dyes, through silica mesoporous hydrogels synthesized by sol-gel. The novelty of the work resides in the simplicity of acquisition of the experimental data (by means of a desk scanner) and further mathematical modeling, which is in line with high throughput screening procedures, enabling rapid and simultaneous determination of relevant diffusion and adsorption parameters...

To study the genotype of Norovirus associated with acute gastroenteritis in Guizhou Province 2011, the patients' fecal specimens were collected from the Guizhou Province People's Hospital in the period of May to December 2011. Noroviruses in specimens were detected by a real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (Real-time RT-PCR). VP1 genes of norovirus-positive strains were then cloned and sequenced. Out of 70 clinical samples, the positive rates for norovirus G I (1 strain) and G II (34 strains) were 1...

OBJECTIVES: The authors sought to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of statins for primary prevention of myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). BACKGROUND: Patients with CKD have an elevated risk of MI and stroke. Although HMG Co-A reductase inhibitors (“statins”) may prevent cardiovascular events in patients with non–dialysis-requiring CKD, adverse drug effects and competing risks could materially influence net effects and clinical decision-making...
