BACKGROUND: Compared with the general population in low- and middle-income countries, military members tend to be male, young, travel more frequently away from their main sexual partners, drink more alcohol and have a consistent source of income. All of these factors may lead to an increased risk of contracting HIV. OBJECTIVE: In response, the Department of Defense HIV/AIDS Prevention Program advocates for the integration of HIV prevention "building blocks" into military health services to reduce the risk of acquiring HIV among foreign uniformed services...

Jooneon Park, Marc D Porter, Michael C Granger
Magnetic particles are widely used as labels in magnetoresistive (MR) sensors. To use magnetic particles as labels, several important characteristics should be considered, such as superparamagnetism, a high magnetic moment per particle (m), facile surface functionalization and biomolecule immobilization, colloidal stability, and analyte specificity. Described in this paper is the preparation of magnetic labels with a high m using colloidal assemblies of superparamagnetic zinc ferrite nanoparticles (ZFNPs, ~9 nm)...

REVIEW
Michael G Porter, Scott M Stoeger
Primary colorectal lymphoma, carcinoids (neuroendocrine tumors), and gastrointestinal stromal tumors comprise a small subset of all colorectal cancers. Their features are unique, and their treatment varies from that of colorectal adenocarcinoma. Appropriate identification is key in the management of these tumors.

3-Iodothyronamine (T1AM) is a structural analog of thyroid hormone that has been demonstrated to have potent affects on numerous physiological systems. Most studies on T1AM have explored its effects in healthy functional systems; while its potential therapeutic uses and safety, and efficacy in pathological conditions are largely unknown. We sought to evaluate the effects of T1AM and its structural analog SG-2 on cancer cell growth and viability. We analyzed the cytotoxicity of these analogs on MCF7 breast cancer cells, HepG2 hepatocellular cancer cells as well as normal control cells using primary human foreskin fibroblasts and mouse preadipocytes control cells...

BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing primary total joint replacement are selected for surgery and thus (other than having a transiently increased mortality rate postoperatively) have a lower mortality rate than age and sex-matched individuals do. Understanding the causes of death following joint replacement would allow targeted strategies to reduce the risk of death and optimize outcome. We aimed to determine the rates and causes of mortality for patients undergoing primary total hip or knee replacement compared with individuals in the general population who were matched for age and sex...

Application of insecticides for stink bug management through overhead irrigation, also called chemigation, could reduce application costs, soil compaction, and applicator exposure, while enabling growers to treat multiple fields simultaneously. The objective of these laboratory experiments was to compare knockdown, survival, and efficacy of insecticides when appropriately diluted for ground sprayer and chemigation applications. Treatments included water, bifenthrin [0.11 kg (AI)/ha] and dicrotophos [0.56 kg (AI)/ha] diluted for a ground sprayer (93...

BACKGROUND: Non-human primates, such as the rhesus macaques, are the preferred model for down-selecting human malaria vaccine formulations, but the rhesus model is expensive and does not allow for direct efficacy testing of human malaria vaccines. Transgenic rodent parasites expressing genes of human Plasmodium are now routinely used for efficacy studies of human malaria vaccines. Mice have however rarely predicted success in human malaria trials and there is scepticism whether mouse studies alone are sufficient to move a vaccine candidate into the clinic...

The IFN-γ-inducible chemokines CXCL9, CXCL10, and CXCL11 play a key role in many inflammatory conditions, particularly those mediated by T cells. Therefore, the production of these chemokines in peripheral tissues could be instrumental in the pathophysiology of tissue-specific immunological diseases such as oral lichen planus (OLP). In the present study, we assessed the production of keratinocyte-derived CXCL9/10/11 under basal and inflammatory conditions and investigated whether these chemokines were involved in the pathogenesis of OLP...

Military prevention programs and healthy living programs were developed in the mid-1980s to manage and support newly HIV-positive military personnel in the US military. Since then, a program developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with support from the Department of Defense HIV/AIDS Prevention Program (DHAPP), called Positive Health, Dignity and Prevention (PHDP), is currently being rolled out by DHAPP in partner militaries. The program, designed to reduce HIV transmission, is a package of interventions for people living with HIV (PLHIV), including risk reduction counseling, condom provision, disclosure counseling, testing of sexual partner(s) and children, adherence counseling, diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections, and provision of family planning services...
