Pulmonary surfactant (PS), which is synthesized by type II alveolar epithelial cells (AECIIs), maintains alveolar integrity by reducing surface tension. Many premature neonates who lack adequate PS are predisposed to developing respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), one of the leading causes of neonatal morbidity and mortality. PS synthesis is influenced and regulated by various factors, including microRNAs. Previous in vitro studies have shown that PS synthesis is regulated by miR-26a in fetal rat AECIIs. This study aimed to investigate the role of miR-26a in PS synthesis in vivo...

Peripherin-2/rds is required for biogenesis of vertebrate photoreceptor outer segment organelles. Its localization at the high curvature rim domains of outer segment disk membranes suggests that it may act to shape these structures; however, the molecular function of this protein is not yet resolved. Here, we apply biochemical, biophysical, and imaging techniques, to elucidate the role(s) played by the protein's intrinsically disordered C-terminal domain, and an incipient amphipathic α-helix contained within it...

BACKGROUND: Respiratory morbidity including respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is a serious complication of preterm birth and the primary cause of early neonatal mortality and disability. While researching the effects of the steroid dexamethasone on premature parturition in fetal sheep in 1969, Liggins found that there was some inflation of the lungs of lambs born at gestations at which the lungs would be expected to be airless. Liggins and Howie published the first randomised controlled trial in humans in 1972 and many others followed...

Cytokine polymorphisms may contribute to the prevalence of respiratory distress syndrome. The present study was done to investigate the frequency of interleukin- (IL-) 10 and tumor necrosis factor- (TNF-) α gene polymorphisms and their association with the risk of RDS in preterm infants. One-hundred and nineteen patients with RDS and 119 healthy preterm infants were enrolled. PCR restriction fragment length polymorphism was used to determine the frequency of IL-10 and TNF-α genotypes at -1082 A and -308 A, respectively...

Norrie disease is a rare, but devastating cause of pediatric retinal detachment, universally portending a poor visual prognosis. This paper describes successful surgical management of an infant with total retinal detachment associated with Norrie disease mutation. The infant was a full-term white male who presented with bilateral total funnel retinal detachments (RDs). He underwent genetic testing, which demonstrated single-point mutation 133 G>A transition in exon 2 of the NDP gene. The retinal detachment was managed with translimbal iridectomy, lensectomy, capsulectomy, and vitrectomy...

Tumor angiogenesis is an important event in tumor malignancy; and the vasculature formed in tumor region is typically dysfunctional. Multiple factors are associated with tumor vessel abnormalities, but the precise mechanism has not been fully understood. In the present study, a tumor-containing cell sheet was prepared by mixing a small population of human embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) cells (RDs) with human skeletal muscle myoblasts (HSMMs) to mimic muscle tissue invaded by RMS cells. Sheet fluidity and the extracellular matrix (ECM) meshwork of the tumor-containing cell sheet were found to be elevated and disordered, demonstrating the disruptive effect of tumor cells on sheet structure...

Using digital phantoms as an atlas compared to acquiring CT data for internal radionuclide dosimetry decreases patient overall radiation dose and reduces the required analysis effort and time for organ segmentation. The drawback is that the phantom may not match exactly with the patient. We assessed the effect of varying BMIs on dosimetry results for a bone pain palliation agent, (153)Sm-EDTMP. The simulation was done using the GATE Monte Carlo code. Female XCAT phantoms with the following different BMIs were employed: 18...

A series of rhenium tricarbonyl complexes coordinated by asymmetric diimine ligands containing a pyridine moiety bound to an oxazoline ring were synthesized, structurally and electrochemically characterized, and screened for CO2 reduction ability. The reported complexes are of the type Re(N-N)(CO)3Cl, with N-N = 2-(pyridin-2-yl)-4,5-dihydrooxazole (1), 5-methyl-2-(pyridin-2-yl)-4,5-dihydrooxazole (2), and 5-phenyl-2-(pyridin-2-yl)-4,5-dihydrooxazole (3). The electrocatalytic reduction of CO2 by these complexes was observed in a variety of solvents and proceeds more quickly in acetonitrile than in dimethylformamide (DMF) and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO)...

The hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) on Ni in alkaline media was investigated by scanning electrochemical microscopy under two operating modes. First, the substrate generation/tip collection mode was employed to extract the "true" cathodic current associated with the HER from the total current in the polarization curve. Compared to metallic Ni, the electrocatalytic activity of the HER is improved in the presence of the low-valence-state oxide of Ni. This result is in agreement with a previous claim that the dissociative adsorption of water can be enhanced at the Ni/Ni oxide interface...

BACKGROUND: Carbohydrate is accepted as the principal nutrient affecting blood glucose in diabetes; however, current guidelines are unable to specify the optimal quantity of carbohydrate for glycaemic control. No studies exist that describe current practice amongst healthcare professionals giving carbohydrate advice in type 2 diabetes. The present study aims to improve understanding of the degree of variation in the current practice of UK registered dietitians (RDs) by describing how RDs advise patients...

Gluten replacement in gluten-free (GF) products presents major challenges for the food industry in terms of sensorial, technological and nutritional characteristics. The absence of gluten reportedly affects starch digestibility, thus increasing the postprandial glycaemic response. However, the role of ingredients and processing conditions has been addressed only seldom. We investigated the in vitro starch digestibility of 9 commercial GF products (5 Italian pasta and 4 Oriental noodles) differing in formulation and processing conditions...

BACKGROUND: Mortality rates among children in motor vehicle crashes (MVCs) are typically low, however non-fatal injuries can vary in severity by imposing differing levels of short- and long-term disability. To better discriminate the severity of non-fatal MVC-injuries, a pediatric-specific disability risk (DR) metric was created. METHODS: The National Automotive Sampling System (NASS-CDS) 2000-2011 was used to define the top 95% most common Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) 2+ injuries among pediatric MVC occupants...

Identifying undiagnosed HIV infection is necessary for the elimination of HIV transmission in the United States. The present study evaluated the efficacy of 3 community-based approaches for uncovering undiagnosed HIV among heterosexuals at high-risk (HHR), who are mainly African American/Black and Hispanic. Heterosexuals comprise 24% of newly reported HIV infections in the United States, but experience complex multilevel barriers to HIV testing. We recruited African American/Black and Hispanic HHR in a discrete urban area with both elevated HIV prevalence and poverty rates...

BACKGROUND: Counseling for patients with impending premature delivery has been traditionally based primarily on the projected gestational age at delivery. There are limited data regarding how the indications for the preterm birth affect the neonatal outcome and whether this issue should be taken into account in decisions regarding management and patient counseling. OBJECTIVE: We performed a prospective study of pregnancies resulting in premature delivery at less than 32 weeks to determine the influence of both the Indications for Admission and their associated Indications for Delivery on neonatal mortality and complications of prematurity...

Diabetes is alarmingly high among Bangladeshi people. But there have been very few studies assessing the effect of diabetes on perinatal outcomes, particularly comparing diabetes prior to pregnancy and gestational diabetes (GDM). This cross sectional observational study was conducted in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, BIRDEM Hospital, Dhaka, Bangladesh from September 2010 to February 2011. Pregnant women admitted in BIRDEM Hospital for delivery after 28 weeks of gestation were selected to assess perinatal complications of GDM and diabetes prior to pregnancy and to compare them after taking permission from institutional review board...

BACKGROUND: Current management of preterm prelabour rupture of the membranes (PPROM) involves either initiating birth soon after PPROM or, alternatively, adopting a 'wait and see' approach (expectant management). It is unclear which strategy is most beneficial for mothers and their babies. This is an update of a Cochrane review published in 2010 (Buchanan 2010). OBJECTIVES: To assess the effect of planned early birth versus expectant management for women with preterm prelabour rupture of the membranes between 24 and 37 weeks' gestation for fetal, infant and maternal well being...
