Background Annually, about 16 million adolescent girls give birth, accounting for 11% of all births worldwide. Ninety-five percent of these births occur in low- and middle-income countries, and previous studies have addressed the need for parenting interventions in developing countries with limited health care resources to improve parenting behaviors. Objective To explore the effect of a brief training program for primigravid adolescents on parenting self-efficacy and mother-infant bonding. Subjects We enrolled 116 married pregnant adolescents...

BACKGROUND: Individuals with persistent musculoskeletal pain (PMP) have an increased risk of developing co-morbid health conditions and for early-mortality compared to those without pain. Despite irrefutable evidence supporting the role of physical activity in reducing these risks; there has been limited synthesis of the evidence, potentially impacting the optimisation of these forms of interventions. This review examines the effectiveness of interventions in improving levels of physical activity and the components of these interventions...

BACKGROUND: Survival of kidney transplants and their recipients is significantly better after living donor than after deceased donor transplantation. However, historically, Northern Ireland has had a low rate of living donor kidney transplantation. The length and complexity of donor evaluation has been one of the main factors contributing to this pattern. STUDY DESIGN: Quality improvement project. SETTINGS & PARTICIPANTS: All people in Northern Ireland expressing an interest in becoming a living kidney donor between 2010 and 2015...

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: A misfit or gap at the implant-abutment joint (IAJ) requires detection as it may compromise the health of the peri-implant tissue. However, which radiographic technique provides the most orthogonal relationship between the central beam and the implant/image receptor is unclear. PURPOSE: The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of 4 intraoral radiographic techniques on misfit detection at the IAJ. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty implants were placed in polyamide jaws, and customized dental implant abutments with a metal collar were installed...

Closely following the procedure for the preparation of the base-stabilized dichlorosilylene complex NHCDipp∙SiCl2 by Roesky and Stalke et al. (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2009, 48, 5683-5686), besides the reported by-product [NHCDipp-H+∙∙∙Cl-], few crystals of the salt [NHCDipp-H∙∙∙Cl∙∙∙H-NHCDipp]Si(SiCl3)3 were isolated and characterized by X-ray crystallography (NHCDipp = N,N-di(2,6-isopropylphenyl)-imidazo-2-ylidene). They feature the weakly-coordinating anion Si(SiCl3)3-, which was more rationally obtained in high yields upon deprotonation of conjugate Brønsted acid HSi(SiCl3)3 with NHCDipp or PMP (PMP = 1,2,2,6,6-pentamethylpiperidine)...

Ephedra sinica polysaccharides have been reported to possess important activities, so quality evaluation of polysaccharides from the genus Ephedra is urgent. In this study, enzymatic digestions were performed to establish multiple saccharide fingerprints by ultra-performance liquid chromatography with electrospray ionization triple quadrupole linear ion trap mass spectrometry (UPLC-ESI-TQ-MS/MS) based on a multiple-reaction monitoring in negative mode. Under optimum UPLC-ESI⁻-TQ-MS/MS conditions, excellent separation and quantification of 21 constituents were achieved within 20 min on a solid core column with a 1...

Although intrabiliary metastasis of carcinoma in the liver is unusual, intraductal and/or intraepithelial spread of cancer cells along intrahepatic bile ducts is now well recognized as hepatic metastasis. However, several clinical and laboratory findings, including images, lead us to differentially diagnose from primary intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. We report here on a case of colonic adenocarcinoma that metastasized to the liver with spread along with the intrahepatic bile duct of S5/6 area. The patient was a 51-year-old man and clinically diagnosed liver metastasis of sigmoid colon cancer (tub2, pMP, ly1, v0, n0), which was diagnosed and treated by sigmoidectomy 7 years ago...

Current technology for penile hemodynamic evaluations in small animals is invasive and has limitations. We evaluated a novel laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI) technique to determine age-related changes in penile microvascular perfusion (PMP) and tested the role of cavernosal muscle (CC) fibrosis mediated by Wnt-TGF β1 signaling pathways in a mouse model. Ten young (2-3 months) and old (24-28 months) wild-type C57BL6 male mice were subjected to PMP measured using a LSCI system. Penile blood flow (PBF, peak systolic velocity, PSV) was also measured using a color Doppler ultrasound for comparison...

BACKGROUND: The Peritoneal Surface Oncology Group International (PSOGI) recommends pathologic reporting of tumor cellularity in patients with pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) undergoing cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemoperfusion (CRS-HIPEC). We investigated the prognostic significance of PMP cellularity, or lack thereof (acellular mucin), following CRS-HIPEC. METHODS: We reviewed clinical data for 310 CRS-HIPEC procedures in low-grade (American Joint Committee on Cancer grade G1) PMP with acellular mucin (n = 19), scant cellularity (n = 30), or moderate cellularity (n = 242)...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to derive and validate plasma metabolite associations with survival in heart failure (HF) patients. BACKGROUND: Profiling of plasma metabolites to predict the course of HF appears promising, but validation and incremental value of these profiles are less established. METHODS: Patients (n = 1,032) who met Framingham HF criteria with a history of reduced ejection fraction were randomly divided into derivation and validation cohorts (n = 516 each)...

BACKGROUND: DATA 2000 enabled physicians with approved training to be waivered to prescribe buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid use disorders (OUD) for a limited number of patients. A rule change in 2016 increased the patient limit for certain buprenorphine waivered physicians from 100 to 275. This study examines the prescribing patterns of buprenorphine prescribers by waiver limit status (30- or 100-patient limit). METHODS: Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) data from Ohio, California, and Maine were used to identify prescriptions for buprenorphine for OUD from January 2010 to April 2015...

Qian Huang, Zeyong Wang, Jinlong Li
In this paper, for a phase measuring profilometry (PMP) system based on a digital light projector, a novel method of grating fringe quick pre-correction is proposed. In the actual engineering conditions, it is impractical to strictly limit the geometry of the system. So grating fringes on the reference plane often appear as distortions of keystone and period broadening, which are difficult to completely eliminate in the traditional calibration process. A pre-correction method based on analytic spatial transform is designed to solve these problems individually...

AIM: The neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and other inflammation-based scores have been used as a prognostic tool to predict survival in solid tumours including pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP). The aim was to evaluate the prognostic value of this marker and risk stratify PMP patients undergoing cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). METHODS: Retrospective analysis was conducted of a prospectively collected database of patients with PMP who underwent CRS and HIPEC between 1994 and 2015...

Xueming He, Xiaping Fu, Xiuqin Rao, Feng Fu
Spatial frequency domain imaging (SFDI), as a rapid, noncontact, and scan-free method, can realize wide-field, quantitative optical property mapping and tomographic imaging for a biological sample. Phase-measuring profilometry (PMP) is a surface profile characterization method. Since the projection of structured light onto an object is the basis for PMP and SFDI, the SFDI system is capable of performing both techniques. In this work, we present the results of a feasibility study with the developed SFDI system to realize acquisition of the optical property information and the surface profile information...

Dorsal root ganglia, dorsal roots (DR), and dorsal root entry zones (DREZ) are vulnerable to frataxin deficiency in Friedreich ataxia (FA). A previously unrecognized abnormality is the intrusion of astroglial tissue into DR. Segments of formalin-fixed upper lumbar spinal cord of 13 homozygous and 2 compound heterozygous FA patients were sectioned longitudinally to represent DREZ and stained for glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), S100, vimentin, the central nervous system (CNS)-specific myelin protein proteolipid protein, the peripheral nervous system (PNS) myelin proteins PMP-22 and P0, and the Schwann cell proteins laminin, alpha-dystroglycan, and periaxin...

Peroxisomal membrane proteins (PMPs) traffic to peroxisomes by two mechanisms: direct insertion from the cytosol into the peroxisomal membrane and indirect trafficking to peroxisomes via the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). In mammals and yeast, several PMPs traffic via the ER in a Pex3- and Pex19-dependent manner. In Komagataella phaffii (formerly called Pichia pastoris) specifically, the indirect traffic of Pex2, but not of Pex11 or Pex17, depends on Pex3, but all PMPs tested for indirect trafficking require Pex19...

The critical thermal maximum (CTmax) of insects can be determined using flow-through thermolimit respirometry. It has been demonstrated that respiratory patterns cease and insects do not recover once the CTmax temperature has been reached. However, if high temperatures are maintained following the CTmax, researchers have observed a curious phenomenon whereby the insect body releases a large burst of carbon dioxide at a rate and magnitude that often exceed that of the live insect. This carbon dioxide release has been termed the post-mortal peak (PMP)...

Resistance to inhibitors of cholinesterase (RIC) -3 promotes the maturation (folding and assembly) of neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) as a molecular chaperone. The modulation effects of RIC-3 on homomeric α7 nAChRs are always positive, but its effects on heteromeric subtypes are inconsistent among reports. In this study, five RIC-3 isoforms were identified from Locusta migratoria. Four isoforms showed obvious effects on hybrid receptor Locα1/rβ2 expressed in Xenopus oocytes. As a representative, the co-expression of RIC-3v4 exhibited the decreased agonist responses (Imax) on oocytes, lower specific [(3)H]epibatidine binding (Bmax) on plasma membrane protein (PMP), and reduced subunit levels in PMP, which showed that the mature Locα1/rβ2 on the plasma membrane was decreased by the co-expression of RIC-3...
