BACKGROUND: Inherited RUNX1 haplodeficiency is associated with thrombocytopenia and platelet dysfunction. Dense granule (DG) deficiency is reported in patients with RUNX1 haplodeficiency, but the molecular mechanisms are unknown. Platelet mRNA expression profiling in a patient previously reported by us with a RUNX1 mutation and platelet dysfunction showed decreased expression of PLDN (BLOC1S6), which encodes for pallidin, a subunit of BLOC-1 (biogenesis of lysosome-related organelles complex-1) involved in granule biogenesis...

PURPOSE: Oncology health professionals (HPs) are increasingly required to care for patients from minority backgrounds. Yet many HPs have not had formal training in how to communicate effectively in culturally diverse settings. More information is needed about the challenges that oncology HPs face in communicating with minority patients to inform the content of formal training programs. This qualitative study aimed to identify oncology nurses' and oncologists' individual experiences and challenges in communicating with patients from minority backgrounds...

BACKGROUND Hepatopulmonary syndrome (HPS) is a pulmonary complication of advanced liver disease with dyspnea as the predominant presenting symptom. The diagnosis of HPS can often be missed due to its nonspecific presentation and the presence of other comorbidities. CASE REPORT We present an interesting case of an obese 43-year-old man who presented with progressive, unexplained hypoxemia and shortness of breath in the absence of any symptoms or signs of chronic liver disease. After extensive cardiopulmonary investigations, he was diagnosed with severe HPS as a result of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) leading to cirrhosis...

We report on the fabrication of a microfluidic device in which the reservoir contains a porous surface with enzymatic catalytic activity provided by the reversible immobilization of horseradish peroxidase onto micrometer size pores. The porous functional reservoir was obtained by the Breath Figures approach by casting in a moist environment a solution containing a mixture of high molecular weight polystyrene (HPS) and a poly(styrene-co-cyclodextrin based styrene) (P(S-co-SCD)) statistical copolymer. The pores enriched in CD were employed to immobilize horseradish peroxidase (previously modified with adamantane) by host-guest interactions (HRP-Ada)...

The Health Physics Society (HPS), formed in 1956, is a scientific organization of professionals who specialize in radiation safety. Its mission is to support its members in the practice of their profession and to promote excellence in the science and practice of radiation safety. HPS has been a diverse body since its beginnings, encompassing professionals from different disciplines with an interest in radiation safety issues. At that time, health physics was just beginning to emerge as a distinct discipline, initially spurred by the development of the atomic bomb and amplified by the commercial use of nuclear power, and there was a need for a professional group to discuss issues and share ideas and experiences in the field...

OBJECTIVE: Hyperperfusion syndrome (HPS) following carotid artery stenting (CAS) is a rare but serious complication. HPS is associated with preoperative hemodynamic impairment due to poor collateral flow and intraoperative cerebral ischemia. Filter-type embolic protection devices (EPDs) maintain anterograde carotid flow during CAS and somewhat prevent HPS. Early treatment of patients undergoing CAS and at risk for HPS is essential. Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) allows non-invasive, real-time measurement of frontal lobe regional cerebral O2 saturation (TOI; tissue oxygenation index)...

Diagnostic and therapeutic purposes are issuing pressing demands to improve the evaluation of the dysplasia condition of the femoral trochlea. The traditional clinical assessment of the dysplasia, based on Dejour classification, recognized 4 increasing (A, B, C, D) levels of severity. It has been extensively questioned in the literature that this classification methodology can be defective suggesting that quantitative measures can ensure more reliable criteria for the dysplasia severity assessment. This study reports on a novel technique to model the trochlear surface (TS), digitally reconstructed by 3D volumetric imaging, using three hyperbolic paraboloids (HP), one to describe the global trochlear aspect, two to represent the local aspects of the medial and lateral compartments, respectively...

Hyperbolic polaritons in van der Waals (vdW) materials recently attract a lot of attention, owing to their strong electromagnetic field confinement, ultraslow group velocities, and long lifetimes. Typically, volume-confined hyperbolic polaritons (HPs) are studied. Here we show the first near-field optical images of hyperbolic surface polaritons (HSPs), which are confined and guided at the edges of thin flakes of a vdW material. To that end, we applied scattering-type scanning near-field optical microscopy (s-SNOM) for launching and real-space nanoimaging of hyperbolic surface phonon polariton modes on a hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) flake...

PURPOSE: Hyperperfusion syndrome (HPS) after carotid artery stenting (CAS) causes serious symptoms; therefore, early evaluation after CAS is considered to be important. Measurement of cerebral blood volume using C‑arm computed tomography (C-arm CBV) has recently become possible. Here, the usefulness of C‑arm CBV for the evaluation of hyperperfusion was investigated. METHODS: C-arm CBV was measured before and immediately after CAS in 30 patients. The regions of interest (ROI) were set in the bilateral middle cerebral artery perfused regions, and the affected/healthy side ratio of measured C‑arm CBV (CBV ratios) was determined to evaluate cerebral perfusion...

A 60-year-old man with myelodysplastic syndrome underwent allogeneic transplantation of female umbilical cord blood in 2010 and sustained a complete remission. He experienced severe pain in his left hip joint and was admitted to the orthopedic surgery division of our institution in February 2015. After admission, he was suspected to have hemophagocytic syndrome (HPS) and was thus transferred to the hematology division. Bone marrow aspiration revealed hyper-cellular marrow filled with abnormal collapsed cells, consistent with bone marrow necrosis (BMN)...

Forty-three fowl adenovirus (FAdV) strains were isolated in China from 2007 to 2014 from poultry and ostriches with inclusion body hepatitis (IBH) and hydropericardium syndrome (HPS). Phylogenetic analysis showed that 28/43 strains clustered into Fowl aviadenovirus D (FAdV-D) and 9/43 strains clustered into FAdV-E. FAdV-C included three isolates of ostrich origin, one of goose origin and two of chicken origin. Based on hexon loop 1 gene sequencing analysis, these viruses were genetically related to FAdV-4, FAdV-8a, FAdV-8b and FAdV-11, of which FAdV-11 was dominant...
