The 2'5'-oligoadenylate synthetase (OAS) is an interferon (IFN)-induced protein that plays an important role in the antiviral action of IFN, with OAS3 being one of the four OAS classes (OAS1, OAS2, OAS3, OASL). The effect of OAS on several infectious viral diseases has been reported; however, a study of the effect of OAS3 on enterovirus 71 (EV71) is lacking. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association of the OAS3 rs1859330 G/A genetic polymorphism with susceptibility and severity of EV71 infection...

PURPOSE: The implementation of pharmacist-managed insulin dosing for selected hospitalized patients under a multimodal insulin protocol (MMIP) is described. SUMMARY: Hyperglycemia has been linked to increased thrombosis, decreased wound healing, and decreased immune response. Current recommendations support the use of multimodal (basal-bolus) insulin therapy in noncritically ill inpatients. As part of a systemwide quality-improvement initiative to improve glycemic management, the pharmacy department of a community hospital initiated a service to provide protocol-directed insulin dosing for selected patients under a pharmacist consultation model...

Enhanced beta (12-30 Hz) oscillatory activity in the basal ganglia (BG) is a prominent feature of the Parkinsonian state in animal models and in patients with Parkinson's disease. Increased beta oscillations are associated with severe dopaminergic striatal depletion. However, the mechanisms underlying these pathological beta oscillations remain elusive. Inspired by the experimental observation that only subsets of neurons within each nucleus in the BG exhibit oscillatory activities, a computational model of the BG-thalamus neuronal network is proposed, which is characterized by subdivided nuclei within the BG...

BACKGROUND: We proposed in 2014 a retrofitting algorithm to retrospectively increase the accuracy of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) data by using some blood glucose (BG) measurements. The method proved effective on Dexcom SEVEN Plus when about 10 highly accurate YSI measurements/session were available. In this study, we test the method on Dexcom G5 sensor in a more realistic setup, where only five capillary BG measurements (self-monitoring blood glucose [SMBG]) per 12 h-session are available...

INTRODUCTION: Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) guidelines recommend vitamin D supplementation in hemodialyzed patients to monitor 25(OH)-vitamin D 25(OH)D levels. However, patient-to-patient inconsistency can be observed in response to the treatment. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the impact of the dialysis membrane on 25(OH)D, albumin (Alb) and vitamin D-binding protein (VDBP), the major players of vitamin D transport and storage. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Alb (Cobas), VDBP (R&D) and 25(OH)D (liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry) were measured in 75 patients before and after a 4-hour dialysis session...

The ground state of a two-level system (associated with probabilities p and 1-p, respectively) defined by a general Hamiltonian H[over ̂]=H[over ̂]_{0}+λV[over ̂] is studied. The simple case characterized by λ=0, whose Hamiltonian H[over ̂]_{0} is represented by a diagonal matrix, is well established and solvable within Boltzmann-Gibbs statistical mechanics; in particular, it follows the third law of thermodynamics, presenting zero entropy (S_{BG}=0) at zero temperature (T=0). Herein it is shown that the introduction of a perturbation λV[over ̂] (λ>0) in the Hamiltonian may lead to a nontrivial ground state, characterized by an entropy S[p] (with S[p]≠S_{BG}[p]), if the Hermitian operator V[over ̂] is represented by a 2×2 matrix, defined by nonzero off-diagonal elements V_{12}=V_{21}=-z, where z is a real positive number...

In Parkinson's disease, the enhanced beta rhythm is closely associated with akinesia/bradykinesia and rigidity. An increase in beta oscillations (12-35 Hz) within the basal ganglia (BG) nuclei does not proliferate throughout the cortico-basal ganglia loop in uniform fashion; rather it can be subdivided into two distinct frequency bands, i.e. the lower beta (12-20 Hz) and upper beta (21-35 Hz). A computational model of the excitatory and inhibitory neural network that focuses on the population properties is proposed to explore the mechanism underlying the pathological beta oscillations...

There is a continuing search for novel synthetic materials as an alternative to autologous bone grafting. Different technologies are explored to promote bone formation, which include the addition of BioGlass™ particles in calcium phosphate (CaP)-based materials and the use of surface modification in the form of submicron surface topographies. In this work, we aimed at comparing the bone formation in a noninstrumented canine interspinous model of moldable formulations of a submicron-surface structured tricalcium phosphate/alkylene oxide copolymer (CaP/AOC) or a tricalcium phosphate/BioGlass/collagen (CaP/BG/C) bone graft material...

BACKGROUND: Hyperglycemia in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) survivors is associated with poor outcomes. However, in the control of initial hyperglycemia, an adequate strategy to improve patients' neurologic outcomes remains undetermined. Prior to the establishment of such strategy, we need to determine whether a decreased rate of initial blood glucose (BG) affects patient outcomes. METHODS: One hundred and forty-five adult non-traumatic OHCA survivors treated with therapeutic hypothermia between April 2007 and December 2011 were enrolled in this single-center retrospective cohort study...
