The optimum retreatment strategy for chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) patients who failed directly-acting antiviral agents (DAA)-based therapy is unknown. We herein report the outcomes of an HCV genotype (GT) 2a-infected patient with virologic failure following treatment with sofosbuvir plus ribavirin (SOF + RBV) who was successfully retreated with ombitasvir/paritaprevir/ritonavir plus ribavirin (OBV/PTV/r + RBV).

Chromatin accessibility is closely associated with chromatin functions such as gene expression, DNA replication, and maintenance of DNA integrity. However, the relationship between chromatin accessibility and plant hormone signaling has remained elusive. Here, based on the correlation between chromatin accessibility and DNA damage, we used the sensitivity to DNA double strand breaks (DSBs) as an indicator of chromatin accessibility and demonstrated that auxin regulates chromatin accessibility through the TIR1/AFBs signaling pathway in proliferative cells...

Zirconium dioxide (ZrO2) nanoparticles were heated at 1200 K in a transmission electron microscope, and their surfaces were observed in situ via lattice imaging. The nanoparticles exhibited well-defined crystal habits while fluctuating the surface terrace structures. The stable surfaces and ridges were inferred from the fluctuation of the terraces, leading to the construction of the three-dimensional surface structures at 1200 K. By contrast, after the specimen cooled to room temperature, the surface fluctuation of the nanoparticles stopped and the crystal habit disappeared, implying that the crystal habit was maintained because of atomic diffusion during the surface fluctuation...

Debates regarding the validity of the Developed Oldowan as separate cultural facies within the Oldowan techno-complex have primarily concentrated on the Developed Oldowan B/Acheulean transition, with little attention paid to the validity of the Developed Oldowan A (DOA) as a valid technological differentiation. This study presents a diachronic technological analysis and comparison of Oldowan and DOA lithic assemblages from Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania, dated between 1.84 and 1.6 Ma, to test the validity of Leakey's original distinction between these two cultural facies...

Retinal tissue is exposed to oxidative stress caused by visible light. Light-damaged rat used in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) studies clarified that antioxidants decrease retinal light damage. Albino rats were exposed to 5000 Lux light for 12 h with oral administration of the polyphenolic compounds fraction (PF) from the seed shells of Japanese horse chestnut (30 mg/kg, 100 mg/kg, and 300 mg/kg body weight: BW). To evaluate the protective effects against light damage, electroretinograms (ERGs), the outer nuclear layer (ONL) thickness, the antioxidant activity of plasma, oxidized retinal lipids, and the detection of apoptosis were examined...

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune chronic inflammatory disease that affects multiple organs and tissues. Lupus nephritis (LN) is a serious complication of SLE, which occurs at a high rate. Conventional treatment strategies of LN have been widely accepted by two concepts such as induction therapy and maintenance therapy. In LN induction therapy until recently, cyclophosphamide in combination with prednisone (PSL) has been the standard method of treatment for proliferative forms of LN. In the latest review, the combination of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is also considered a standard treatment option...

Transthoracic ultrasound has lately emerged as a useful diagnostic tool for respiratory physicians in the diagnosis of diverse pulmonary diseases, usually including pleural effusion and pneumothorax. However, the use of chest ultrasound may be also critical in the evaluation of chest wall diseases. Therefore, we present an interesting case of a patient with metastases of lung cancer to the rib, detected during the chest wall ultrasound examination. By representing a non-invasive, surface-imaging technique with several advantages, chest ultrasound may evolve to a valid, bed-side diagnostic tool for the diagnosis and follow up of lung cancer with metastases in the chest wall...

The toxic manipulator of oogenesis (TomO) protein has been identified in the wMel strain of Wolbachia that symbioses with the vinegar fly Drosophila melanogaster, as a protein that affects host reproduction. TomO protects germ stem cells (GSCs) from degeneration, which otherwise occurs in ovaries of host females that are mutant for the gene Sex-lethal (Sxl). We isolated the TomO homologs from wPip, a Wolbachia strain from the mosquito Culex quinquefasciatus. One of the homologs, TomOw Pip 1, exerted the GSC rescue activity in fly Sxl mutants when lacking its hydrophobic stretches...

The cobalt complexes CoII L1(PF6 )2 (1; L1 = 2,6-bis[2-(2,2'-bipyridin-6'-yl)ethyl]pyridine) and CoII L2(PF6 )2 (2; L2 = 2,6-bis[2-(4-methoxy-2,2'-bipyridin-6'-yl)ethyl]pyridine) were synthesized and used for photocatalytic CO2 reduction in acetonitrile. X-ray structures of complexes 1 and 2 reveal distorted trigonal-bipyramidal geometries with all nitrogen atoms of the ligand coordinated to the Co(II) center, in contrast to the common six-coordinate cobalt complexes with pentadentate polypyridine ligands, where a monodentate solvent completes the coordination sphere...

Class IV lupus nephritis (LN) often has a poorer prognosis than other classes. However, class IV LN has various phenotypes, including not only segmental and global types but also others. We present the case of a 29-year-old woman with class IV-G LN who had an early response to glucocorticoid monotherapy. In addition, multiple lung nodules such as miliary tuberculosis (TB) were detected on computed tomography. All cultures of sputum, gastric fluid, and bone marrow were negative. A kidney biopsy revealed diffuse endocapillary proliferative glomerulonephritis with marked subendothelial deposition...

Recent studies have revealed that transurethral resection in one piece (TURBO) has several benefits over standard transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TUR-Bt), including a higher rate of containing the bladder muscle tissue and single-block resection. Five-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) was approved for the detection of bladder tumor treated with TUR-Bt. A 71-year-old male patient who received right nephroureterectomy developed bladder tumor recurrence on routine cystoscopy follow-up. We planned TURBO using fluorescent light-guided cystoscopy with 5-ALA...

OBJECTIVE:  High-density lipoprotein (HDL) has been epidemiologically shown to be associated with the outcome of sepsis. One potential mechanism is that HDL possesses pleiotropic effects, such as anti-apoptosis, some of which can be ascribed to sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) carried on HDL via apolipoprotein M (apoM). Therefore, the aim of this study was to elucidate the roles of apoM/S1P in the consequent lethal conditions of sepsis, such as multiple organ failure caused by severe inflammation and/or disseminated intravascular coagulation...

BACKGROUND: Transcriptional regulation is very important and pivotal function in myriad biological responses. Thus, methods to determine transcriptional activity are required in not only basic medical research but also drug discovery. We established novel reporter constructs using human secreted embryonic alkaline phosphatase (SEAP) and Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen (EBNA) 1, which can maintain constructs synchronized to host cell replication. METHODS: We established nuclear factor-kappa B (NFkB) or interferon regulatory factor (IRF) driven SEAP expression constructs and then, introduced them into culture cells...
