PURPOSE: To determine the effect of limb selection (upper/lower), cuff width (small (6 cm)/medium (13 cm) upper; medium/large (18 cm) lower) and anthropometry on arterial occlusion pressure (AOP) in ischemic preconditioning (IPC). METHODS: Twenty athletes (10 females and 10 males) had surface anthropometry and dual x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) assessments before using Doppler ultrasound to confirm AOP for each limb. Subsequently, 5 min of occlusion occurred, with near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) measuring muscle oxygenation changes...

Herein, we report the design and synthesis of three new un-symmetrical metal-free carbazole based organic dyes, E1-3 with A-π-D-π-A architecture, as effective di-anchoring sensitizers in DSSCs. The new entities comprise carbazole as a donor scaffold connected to three different units, viz. cyano acetic acid, 2,4-thiazolidinedione and barbituric acid as acceptor/anchoring units via vinylene and phenylene as π-spacers at 3- and 6-positions of the carbazole ring, respectively. Photophysical, electrochemical and theoretical studies were carried out in order to assess their feasibility as active sensitizers...

BACKGROUND: The implementation of the core components of infection prevention and control (IPC) recommended by the World Health Organization faces severe challenges, particularly in developing countries. Given that hospital IPC committees in these countries are the key implementers of IPC, there is a need to evaluate their effectiveness. This study qualitatively evaluated the effectiveness of IPC committees in the southern African country of Lesotho with the aim of identifying themes for policy discourse on improving IPC practice in the country...

In symptomatic malignant pleural effusions, mostly in a palliative situation, therapeutic procedures should be chosen to improve dyspnoea and the concomitant impairment of quality of life. Indwelling pleural catheters (IPC) have played an increasing role in recent years. The efficacy and safety of this method have not been adequately clarified under real-life clinical conditions. 94 patients, in whom IPC had been implanted because of a clinical indication, were analysed retrospectively with respect to efficacy and safety, together with patient characteristics, peri- and postinterventional complications, e...

AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Hyperglycaemia has been associated with the incidence of all and specific types of cancer, distinct from the risks related to diabetes. The relationships between blood glucose and mortality rates related to all and specific cancers were analysed in comparison with all-cause or non-cancer-related mortality rates in a large, general primary care population in France. METHODS: Between January 1991 and December 2008, 301,948 participants (193,221 men and 108,727 women), aged 16-95 years (mean ± SD 44...

As a potential cure for diabetes, more and more attentions have been paid to organ transplants to replace insulin therapy. As a result, many researchers have explored out many programs to get insulin-producing cells (IPCs) to replace the defective β cells. Currently, more and more new induction methods are being proposed, and at the same time, more and more possible induction molecular mechanisms are being revealed. The purpose of this study was to explore whether and how the two factors pdx-1 and myocardin affected the differentiation of rat mesenchymal stem cells (rMSCs) into IPCs...

miRNAs regulate insulin secretion, pancreatic development, and beta-cell differentiation. However, their function in the differentiation of IPCs from MSCs is poorly understood. In this study, to screen for miRNAs and their targets that function during the formation of IPCs from MSCs, we examined the miRNA expression profiles of MSCs and IPCs using RNA-seq and qPCR to confirm the above results. We found that miR-34c exhibited transient upregulation at an early stage of the formation of IPCs derived from MSCs...

The trend towards continuous manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry is associated with an increasing demand for advanced control strategies. It is a mandatory requirement to obtain reliable real-time information on critical quality attributes (CQA) during every process step as the decision on diversion of material needs to be performed fast and automatically. Where possible, production equipment should provide redundant systems for in-process control (IPC) measurements to ensure continuous process monitoring even if one of the systems is not available...

BACKGROUND: Ischemic preconditioning (IPC) and ischemic postconditioning (IPoC) are currently among the most efficient strategies protecting the heart against ischemia/reperfusion injury. However, the effect of IPC and IPoC on functional recovery following ischemia/reperfusion is less clear, particularly with regard to the specific receptor-mediated signaling of the postischemic heart. The current article examines the effect of IPC or IPoC on the regulation and coupling of β-adrenergic receptors and their effects on postischemic left ventricular function...

A simple and highly sensitive electrochemical method based on a 1,4-benzoquinone modified carbon paste electrode (1,4-BQMCPE) was described for the determination of tinidazole (TDZ). In Britton Robinson buffer solution, TDZ yields well-defined irreversible reduction peak at -0.344 V on a 1,4-BQMCPE. Compared with that on a bare CPE, the reduction peak of TDZ increased significantly on the modified CPE and the effects of different parameters on the voltammetric responses were also investigated. Differential pulse voltammetric method was proposed and optimized for TDZ determination and its reductive peak current response at 1,4-BQMCPE was found to show linear dependence on the concentration of TDZ in the range of 1...

Mechanisms coupling growth and metabolism are conserved in Drosophila and mammals. In metazoans, such coupling is achieved across tissue scales through the regulated secretion of chemical messengers such as insulin that control the metabolism and growth of cells. Although the regulated secretion of Insulin like peptide (dILP) is key to normal growth and metabolism in Drosophila, the sub-cellular mechanisms that regulate dILP release remain poorly understood. We find that reduced function of the only protein kinase D in Drosophila (dPKDH) results in delayed larval growth and development associated with abnormal sugar and lipid metabolism, reduced insulin signalling and accumulation of dILP2 in the neurosecretory IPCs of the larval brain...

BACKGROUND: Transmission of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in the health care setting is rare. Routine infection prevention and control (IPC) measures mean this should be a preventable never event. This paper investigates the diagnosis of acute healthcare associated HCV infection. METHODS: Epidemiological and molecular investigation of a case of acute HCV infection associated with nosocomial exposure. RESULTS: Detailed investigation of the treatment history of a patient with acute HCV infection identified transmission from a co-attending patient in an Emergency Department as the likely source; this possibility was confirmed by virus sequence analysis...

Transplantation of stem cells using biocompatible nanofibrous scaffolds is a promising therapeutic method for treating Diabetic Mellitus. The aim of this study was to derive insulin-producing cells (IPCs) from conjunctiva-derived mesenchymal stem cell (CJMSCs) and to compare the functionality of differentiated IPCs in a three-dimensional (3D) culture with 2D. Furthermore, the effects of hydrophobicity of scaffold on IPCs differentiation were examined. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), quantitative real times PCR (qPCR), Immunostaining and flow cytometry were used to analyze fabricated scaffold and the presence of IPCs...

BACKGROUND: Inquiries relating to ibuprofen overdose have more than tripled in the last ten years in our poison control center. Although the vast majority of cases have a benign clinical course, there are few severe or even fatal cases present with refractory circulatory failure. CASE PRESENTATION: We describe a case of a 48 year-old male with suicidal mono-ingestion of approximately 72 g ibuprofen. Despite an initial rapid spontaneous drop in the total ibuprofen plasma concentration (IPC) from 550 to 275 mcg/mL within the first 5 h after admission, the patient developed a circulatory failure, refractory to aggressive fluid resuscitation and high doses of vasopressors...

Water oxidation is a critical step in artificial photosynthesis and provides the protons and electrons used in reduction reactions to make solar fuels. Significant advances have been made in the area of molecular water oxidation catalysts with a notable breakthrough in the development of Ru(II) complexes that use a planar "bda" ligand (bda is 2,2'-bipyridine-6,6'-dicarboxylate). These Ru(II)(bda) complexes show lower overpotentials for driving water oxidation making them ideal for light-driven applications with a suitable chromophore...

Interpersonal predictive coding (IPC) enables one to use the information conveyed by the communicative action of one agent to predict the response of another agent. IPC relies both on explicit reflective processes (processing of communicative intentions) and automatic reflexive processes (motor resonance). Predictive coding deficits may underlie positive symptoms in people with schizophrenia (SCZ), yet IPC has not been analyzed in SCZ. Thirty-nine SCZ and 22 controls (HC) completed a simultaneous masking detection task, during which they observed either communicative (Com) or individual (Ind) actions of agent A and had to report the presence of the agent B, who was shown in half of the trials...

This article proposes a framework for faculty development in continuing interprofessional education (CIPE) and collaborative practice. The framework is built on best practices in faculty development and CIPE. It was informed by local experience in the development, delivery, and evaluation of a faculty development program to promote capacity for dissemination of concepts relating to interprofessional education (IPE) and interprofessional collaboration (IPC) in health care environments. Interprofessional education has been demonstrated in clinical contexts to enhance interprofessional collaboration, patient care, and health outcomes...

We designed, synthesized and characterized a novel metal-free organic sensitizer, suitable for the application in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs), both experimentally and theoretically. The structure of the novel donor-acceptor-π-bridge-acceptor (D-A-π-A) dye has triphenylamine (TPA) segment and 4-(Benzo[c][1,2,5] thiadiazol-4-ylethynyl) benzoic acid (BTEBA). The triphenylamine unit is widely used as electron donor for the photosensitizers due to its outstanding characteristics, i.e. the non-planar molecular configuration and excellent electron donating capability while 4-(Benzo[c][1,2,5] thiadiazol-4-ylethynyl) benzoic acid is used as electron acceptor unit...

Interpersonal postural coordination (IPC) produced by interpersonal light touch (ILT), whereby time-series variations in the postural sway between two people unintentionally resemble each other, may be a possible social interaction. From a sociopsychological standpoint, close mutual behavioral coordination is recognized as "social glue," which represents the closeness of relationships and contributes to the building of a good rapport. Therefore, we hypothesized that if IPC functions as social glue, then IPC produced by ILT also represents a social relationship...
