Mycoplasma synoviae is an economically significant pathogen in the poultry industry, inducing respiratory disease and infectious synovitis in chickens and turkeys, and eggshell apex abnormality in chickens. Eradication, medication and vaccination are the options for controlling M. synoviae infection. Currently there are two commercial, live, attenuated vaccines available against M. synoviae: the temperature sensitive MS-H vaccine strain and the NAD independent MS1 vaccine strain. Differentiation of vaccine strains from field isolates is essential during vaccination and eradication programs...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Silent ischemic embolic lesions are common after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). The use of embolic protection devices (EPD) may reduce the occurrence of these embolic lesions. Thus, a quantitative overview and credibility assessment of the literature was necessary to draw a robust message about EPD. Therefore, the aim of this meta-analysis was to study whether the use of EPD reduces silent ischemic and clinically evident cerebrovascular events associated with TAVI...

BACKGROUND/AIM: The McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS) is a potentially severe disorder hallmarked by fibrous bone dysplasia, café-au-lait skin spots, and endocrine hyperfunction. It is caused by postzygotic activating mutations at the R201 codon of the GNAS gene, leading to a state of somatic mosaicism. Our aim was to improve the mutation detection rate and to quantify the presence of R201 GNAS mutations in different DNA samples from MAS patients. METHODS: Real-time COLD- and MAMA-PCR TaqMan techniques were combined to search for R201 mutations in the DNA of blood or affected tissues from 16 previously molecularly characterized MAS patients, from a further 84 subjects with MAS signs who were R201 negative at RFLP analysis, and from 36 controls...

AIMS: Pre-procedural ventilation is a marker of high risk in PCI patients. Causes include out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) and cardiogenic shock. OHCA occurs in approximately 60,000 patients in the UK per annum. No consensus exists regarding the need/timing of coronary angiography ± revascularization without ST elevation. The aim was to describe the national variation in the rate of emergency PCI in ventilated patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: Using the UK national database for PCI in 2013, we identified all procedures performed as 'emergency' or 'salvage' for whom ventilation had been initiated before the PCI...

BACKGROUND: The assessment of patients presenting with angina using invasive angiography alone is imperfect. By contrast, fractional flow reserve (FFR) allows for assessment of lesion-specific ischemia, which is predictive of clinical outcome. A series of studies has demonstrated that the availability of FFR data at the time of diagnostic angiography leads to significant differences in the management of those patients. HYPOTHESIS: The objective of this paper is to describe assess the consistency in the difference in management resulting from an FFR-directed versus and angiogram-directed strategy in appropriate observational and randomized trials...

Kuo-Wei Cheng, Shan-Hui Hsu
Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIO NPs) have a wide range of biomedical applications such as in magnetic resonance imaging, targeting, and hyperthermia therapy. Aggregation of SPIO NPs can occur because of the hydrophobic surface and high surface energy of SPIO NPs. Here, we developed a facile method to encapsulate SPIO NPs in amphiphilic biodegradable polymer. Anionic biodegradable polyurethane nanoparticles (PU NPs) with ~35 nm size and different chemistry were prepared by waterborne processes...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, the effect of cognitive abilities on the achievements of cochlear implant (CI) users has been evaluated. Some studies have suggested that gaps between CI users and normal-hearing (NH) peers in cognitive tasks are modality specific, and occur only in auditory tasks. PURPOSE: The present study focused on the effect of learning modality (auditory, visual) and auditory feedback on word memory in young adults who were prelingually deafened and received CIs before the age of 5 yr, and their NH peers...

Morphological changes in U3O8 based on calcination temperature have been quantified enabling a morphological feature to serve as a signature of processing history in nuclear forensics. Five separate calcination temperatures were used to synthesize α-U3O8, and each sample was characterized using powder X-ray diffraction (p-XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The p-XRD spectra were used to evaluate the purity of the synthesized U-oxide; the morphological analysis for materials (MAMA) software was utilized to quantitatively characterize the particle shape and size as indicated by the SEM images...

Despite numerous studies on primary care doctors' remuneration and their job satisfaction, few of them have quantified their views and preferences on certain types of remuneration. This study aimed at reporting these views and preferences on behalf of Greek doctors employed at public primary care. We applied a 13-item questionnaire to a random sample of 212 doctors at National Health Service health centers and their satellite clinics. The results showed that most doctors deem their salary lower than work produced and lower than that of private sector colleagues...
