Environmental monitoring and modelling, especially in the regional context, has seen significant progress with the widely usage of satellite measurement in conjunction with local meteorological and air quality monitoring to understand the atmospheric dispersion and transport of air pollutants. This paper studies the application of these data and modelling tools to understand the environment effects of a major bushfire period in the state of New South Wales (NSW), Australia, in 2013. The bushfires have caused high pollution episodes at many sites in the greater Sydney metropolitan areas...

Ameloblastoma is the most common and clinically relevant type of odontogenic tumor. Clear cell odontogenic carcinoma is histologically characterized by solid sheets and nests of clear cells, whereas clear cell ameloblastoma (CCAM) is histologically characterized by an ameloblastomatous component intermixed with an extensive clear cell component. A total of 12 reports have been published on the histological etiology for CCAM; however, no reports have made regarding the detailed computed tomography and/or magnetic resonance imaging features of tumors of this type...

BACKGROUND Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) is mostly reported from the second trimester of pregnancy. We report a case of a microcystic type of CCAM that was suggested by routine ultrasound examination at a gestational age of 12 weeks. CASE REPORT First-trimester ultrasound screening revealed the presence of a hyperechoic image that occupied the whole of the right lung, without no other any associated complications. The cardiac and aorta deviations with diaphragmatic eversion associated with a poly-hydramnios had subsequently appeared...

Climate change (CC) is likely to affect the thousands of bar-built or barrier estuaries (here referred to as Small tidal inlets - STIs) around the world. Any such CC impacts on the stability of STIs, which governs the dynamics of STIs as well as that of the inlet-adjacent coastline, can result in significant socio-economic consequences due to the heavy human utilisation of these systems and their surrounds. This article demonstrates the application of a process based snap-shot modelling approach, using the coastal morphodynamic model Delft3D , to 3 case study sites representing the 3 main STI types; Permanently open, locationally stable inlets (Type 1), Permanently open, alongshore migrating inlets (Type 2) and Seasonally/Intermittently open, locationally stable inlets (Type 3)...

Tobacco blue mold, caused by Peronospora tabacina, is an oomycete plant pathogen that causes yearly epidemics in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) in the United States and Europe. The genetic structure of P. tabacina was examined to understand genetic diversity, population structure and patterns of migration. Two nuclear loci, Igs2 and Ypt1, and one mitochondrial locus, cox2, were amplified, cloned and sequenced from fifty-four isolates of P. tabacina from the United States, Central America-Caribbean-Mexico (CCAM), Europe and the Middle East (EULE)...

The EXIT (ex utero intrapartum treatment) procedure is an established method of respiratory protection, originally used in the delivery of fetuses with congenital obstructive airway diseases (tumors in the throat area, hygromas, so-called congenital high airway obstruction syndrome (CHAOS)). Meanwhile, the procedure is also carried out in large perinatal centers for pronounced diaphragmatic hernia or other special indications (EXIT to ECMO, congenital lung airway malformations (CCAM), pulmonary atresia). We present our experience with adapted EXIT procedures in 5 preterm infants with secondary generalized hydrops fetalis and pronounced bilateral hydrothoraces...

Congenital cyst adenoid malformation (CCAM) is a rare congenital malformation occurring in approximately 1-4 in 100,000 births. It is classified into five subtypes with type 1 CCAM is most common subtype. The diagnosis of CCAM is usually made in infancy, and it is rare in adolescents and adults. We report a 15-year-old female, who presented in pediatric outpatient department with a history of recurrent cough since infancy. On the basis of clinical examination, provisional diagnosis of asthma was considered and patient was started on inhaled corticosteroid and long-term β2 agonist...

Targeted microbubbles have the potential to be used for ultrasound (US) therapy and diagnosis of various cancers. In the present study, US was irradiated to oral squamous cell carcinoma cells (HSC-2) in the presence of cetuximab-coated albumin microbubbles (CCAM). Cell killing rate with US treatment at 0.9 W/cm2 and 1.0 W/cm2 in the presence of CCAM was greater compared to non-targeted albumin microbubbles (p < .05). On the other hand, selective cell killing was not observed in human myelomonocytic lymphoma cell line (U937) that had no affinity to cetuximab...

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPARγ) plays an important role in lipid and glucose metabolism. In this study, the function of PPARγ on lung development was investigated. Lung-specific Pparg conditional knockout mice (PpargΔLuEpC ) were developed using Cre-Lox system. PpargΔLuEpC mice showed abnormal lung development with enlarged airspaces and followed by increase of apoptotic cells at E14.5 to E18.5. Gene analysis revealed that expression of Pmaip1, a gene related to apoptosis, was significantly increased while expression of Retnla, a gene related to anti-apoptosis, was dramatically decreased in the fetal lung (E14...

Pulmonary sequestration (PMS) is a rare bronchopulmonary malformation. It has an incidence of between 0.15% to 1.7%. Likewise, cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) is another relatively rare category of a bronchopulmonary malformation with a reported incidence of between 1 in 25,000 to 1 in 35,000. Moreover, a bronchopulmonary malformation with features allied to both of these forms is considered an even rarer entity. In general, bronchopulmonary malformations present with a range of non-specific symptoms...

Northeast Thailand makes a significant contribution to fragrant and high-quality rice consumed within Thailand and exported to other countries. The majority of rice is produced in rainfed conditions while irrigation water is supplied to rice growers in the dry season. This paper quantifies the potential impact of climate change on the water footprint of rice production using the DSSAT (CERES-Rice) crop growth model for the Nam Oon Irrigation Project located in Northeast Thailand. Crop phenology data was obtained from field experiments and used to set up and validate the CERES-Rice model...

Background: Lung cancer treatment has become increasingly dependent upon invasive biopsies to profile tumors for personalized therapy. Recently, tumor expression of programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) has gained interest as a potential predictor of response to immunotherapy. Circulating biomarkers present an opportunity for tumor profiling without the risks of invasive procedures. We characterized PD-L1 expression within populations of nucleated cells in the peripheral blood of lung cancer patients in hopes of expanding the role of liquid biopsy in this setting...

Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformations (CCAMs) are rare congenital, nonhereditary developmental anomalies of the lung with unknown etiology. CCAM is predominantly a disorder of infancy with the majority of the cases being diagnosed within the first 2 years of life. When CCAM presents in adults, it represents a diagnostic dilemma and requires careful evaluation. We here report a case of large solitary congenital pulmonary cystic adenomatoid malformation with infection and hemorrhage, which was diagnosed as encysted hydropneumothorax on computerized tomography scans but turned out to be infected pulmonary cystic adenomatoid malformation after surgical excision...
