The probability of a false decision on conformity of a multicomponent material due to measurement uncertainty is discussed when test results are correlated. Specification limits of the components' content of such a material generate a multivariate specification interval/domain. When true values of components' content and corresponding test results are modelled by multivariate distributions (e.g. by multivariate normal distributions), a total global risk of a false decision on the material conformity can be evaluated based on calculation of integrals of their joint probability density function...

BACKGROUND: With the exception of liver transplantation, there is no cure for hemophilia, which is currently managed by preemptive replacement therapy. Liver-derived stem cells are in clinical development for inborn and acquired liver diseases and could represent a curative treatment for hemophilia A. The liver is a major factor VIII (FVIII) synthesis site, and mesenchymal stem cells have been shown to control joint bleeding in animal models of hemophilia. Adult-derived human liver stem cells (ADHLSCs) have mesenchymal characteristics and have been shown able to engraft in and repopulate both animal and human livers...

Abuse of antibiotics and heavy metals in aquaculture has been widely concerned and might aggravate the spread of resistance genes in environment. To investigate the occurrence and proliferation of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) and heavy metal resistance genes (HMRGs), three commonly used antibiotics (tetracycline, sulfanilamide, cefotaxime) and two heavy metals (Zn and Cu) were designed to add individually or jointly in nine fish tanks including five individual exposure tanks of tetracycline (tet), sulfanilamide (sul), cefotaxime (cef), Cu, Zn and four combination exposure tanks of tetracycline + sulfanilamide (tet + sul), tetracycline + sulfanilamide + cefotaxime (tet + sul + cef), tetracycline + sulfanilamide + Cu (tet + sul + Cu), tetracycline + sulfanilamide + Zn (tet + sul + Zn) as well as the control during the experiment period of 180 days...

Previous studies suggest that metabolic disturbances might be involved in the development of osteoarthritis (OA). Associations have been found between the individual components of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and OA. MetS has been associated with increased oxidative stress (OxS). The study aimed to clarify the role of MetS components in OA and to evaluate the levels of OxS in OA patients and in age-matched controls. Fifty-five patients with end-stage OA (age 63 ± 7 years) prior to hip or knee joint replacement surgery and 55 age-, gender- and body mass index matched controls (61 ± 8 years) were enrolled in the study...

Despite recent technologic advances, total elbow arthroplasty has complication rates higher than that of total joint arthroplasty in other joints. With new antirheumatic treatments, the population receiving total elbow arthroplasty has shifted from patients with rheumatoid arthritis to those with posttraumatic arthritis, further compounding the high complication rate. The most common reasons for revision include infection, aseptic loosening, fracture, and component failure. Common mechanisms of total elbow arthroplasty failure include infection, aseptic loosening, fracture, component failure, and instability...

Metal wear debris has been shown to activate an aseptic osteolytic process that causes failure in total joint arthroplasty (TJA). This osteolysis is characterized by a proinflammatory, self-propagating immune response involving primarily macrophages, dendritic cells, and activated osteoclasts, as well as T cells and B cells. The human bone morphogenic protein (BMP)-7, on the other hand, was shown to promote osteoblast survival, and reversed the downregulation of anabolic Smad proteins and Runx2 following cobalt injury...

BACKGROUND: Oxidative stress and muscle damage occur during exhaustive bouts of exercise, and many runners report pain and soreness as major influences on changes or breaks in training regimens, creating a barrier to training persistence. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a sulfur-based nutritional supplement that is purported to have pain and inflammation-reducing effects. To investigate the effects of MSM in attenuating damage associated with physical exertion, this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluated the effects of MSM supplementation on exercise-induced pain, oxidative stress and muscle damage...

Finite element (FE) models have been widely used to predict biomechanical parameters of the cervical spine. Previous studies investigated the influence of position of rotational centers (RCs) of prostheses on the cervical biomechanical parameters after one-level total disc replacement (TDR). The purpose of this study was to make a further step by exploring the effects of axial position of RCs of prostheses on the cervical biomechanics after 2-level TDR. A validated FE model of C3-C7 segments and 2 prostheses, including the RC located at the superior endplate (SE) and inferior endplate (IE), was developed...

BACKGROUND: Readmission rate has emerged as an important metric to measure quality, but varying definitions and timeframes are used. We aimed to evaluate the impact of different readmission definitions (postoperative vs postdischarge) and timeframes (30 vs 90-day) on capturing surgery-related readmissions after primary total joint arthroplasty. METHODS: Patients who underwent primary total hip or knee arthroplasty between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2015 were included...

BACKGROUND: Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most common reoperations after hip arthroscopy. Although arthroscopy causes changes in the hip joint and the surrounding soft tissues that can make THA more challenging, previous reports on arthroscopy before THA have not demonstrated any significant effect on clinical outcomes. METHODS: Patients who underwent a THA following an ipsilateral hip arthroscopy were matched to a control group of THA patients with no history of ipsilateral hip surgery...

Fungal prosthetic joint infection is a rare complication in total joint arthroplasty. There are no established guidelines for management of these infections. We present a case of a 53-year-old male with a hip joint prosthesis co-infected with Candida tropicalis and Staphylococcus haemolyticus. A two-stage exchange arthroplasty was performed. The patient underwent implant removal, debridement, irrigation with saline solution and application of cement spacer impregnated with vancomycin followed by aggressive antimicrobial treatment in first stage...

To elucidate the environmental fate of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) once released into soil, sixteen humic acids (HAs) and one humin (HM) fractions were sequentially extracted from a peat soil, and sixteen priority PAHs in these humic substances (HSs) were analyzed. It was found that the total concentration of 16 PAHs (∑16PAHs) increased evidently from HA1 to HA16, and then dramatically reached the highest value in HM. The trend of ∑16PAHs in HAs relates to surface carbon and C-H/C-C contents, the bulk aliphatic carbon content and aliphaticity, as well as the condensation enhancement of carbon domains, which were derived from elemental composition, XPS, (13)C NMR, as well as thermal analyses...
