Monetary rewards and punishments have been shown to respectively enhance retention of motor memories and short-term motor performance, but their underlying neural bases in the context of motor control tasks remain unclear. Using electroencephalography (EEG), the present study tested the hypothesis that monetary rewards and punishments are respectively reflected in post-feedback beta-band (20-30 Hz) and theta-band (3-8 Hz) oscillatory power. While participants performed upper limb reaching movements toward visual targets using their right hand, the delivery of monetary rewards and punishments was manipulated as well as their probability (i...

In November 2017, a 15-day-old calf located in France (Haute-Savoie department) was found positive for bluetongue virus (BTV) RNA by RT-PCR. Laboratory investigations allowed the isolation and identification of the serotype: BTV-4. The analysis of the full viral genome showed that all the 10 genome segments were closely related to BTV-4 strains involved in a large BT outbreak in the Balkan Peninsula, in Italy since 2014 and in Corsica since the end of October 2016. These results together with epidemiological data suggest that BTV-4 has been introduced to mainland France from Corsica or Italy where BTV-4 outbreaks have been reported in summer and autumn 2016...

BACKGROUND: Systemic infection through the seed is one of the routes used by mycotoxinogen pathogen Fusarium verticillioides for colonizing maize plants. The prohibition of most of the chemical fungicides by the EU promote the research of plant resistance inducers as an effective and sustainable alternative. Induction of a priming state in maize seeds might affect their susceptibility for contamination and accumulation of fumonisins. This state in plants, by a natural fertilizer applied called Chamae on maize seeds, was investigate in two varieties to control the colonization by the fungus and the accumulation of fumonisins B1, B2, and B3, germinating seeds, died plants and yield...

INTRODUCTION: Military people are inapt for presence of urinary stones. In this specific population, the treatment of stones is even more aggressive than for the general population without recommendation. The final decision about aptitude is the responsibility of the military doctor. Whereas, ureteroscopy has its place there and must done by any urologist. METHODS: The purpose of this study was to estimate the results of treatments by ureteroscopy in this population...

The 11th Global CRO Council Closed Forum was held in Universal City, CA, USA on 3 April 2017. Representatives from international CRO members offering bioanalytical services were in attendance in order to discuss scientific and regulatory issues specific to bioanalysis. The second CRO-Pharma Scientific Interchange Meeting was held on 7 April 2017, which included Pharma representatives' sharing perspectives on the topics discussed earlier in the week with the CRO members. The issues discussed at the meetings included cumulative stability evaluations, matrix stability evaluations, the 2016 US FDA Immunogenicity Guidance and recent and unexpected FDA Form 483s on immunogenicity assays, the bioanalytical laboratory's role in writing PK sample collection instructions, biosimilars, CRO perspectives on the use of chiral versus achiral methods, hybrid LBA/LCMS assays, applications of fit-for-purpose validation and, at the Global CRO Council Closed Forum only, the status and trend of current regulated bioanalytical practice in China under CFDA's new BMV policy...

The photo-induced cytotoxicity of prodigiosenes is reported. One prodigiosene represents a synthetic analogue of the natural product prodigiosin, and two are conjugated to molecules that target the estrogen receptor (ER). A comparison of incubation and irradiation frameworks for the three prodigiosenes is reported, with activity against ER- and ER+ lines explored. Furthermore, the ability of the three prodigiosenes to photosensitise the production of singlet oxygen is demonstrated, shedding mechanistic light onto possible photodynamic therapeutic effects of this class of tripyrroles...

The influence of pentafluorosulfanylation on biological activity has been revealed in numerous comparative studies of biologically active compounds, but considerably less is known about the influence of pentafluorosulfanylation on reactivity. Among the distinctive properties of the pentafluorosulfanyl group is the profound dipole moment that results from introduction of this substituent. It has been shown that dipolar effects coupled with the steric demand of the SF5 group may be employed to influence the stereochemistry of reactions, especially those processes with significant charge separation in the transition state...

BACKGROUND: This study examined clinical outcomes associated with the use of a gastroschisis-specific (GS) feeding advancement guideline. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study of all simple gastroschisis babies (N = 65) treated between June 2009June 2015. We compared patients treated on a postintestinal surgery guideline using either a 1-day (1D) or 3-day (3D) feeding advancement from August 2009-August 2013 with infants treated on a GS guideline from September 2013-June 2015...

A novel poly( N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) hydrogel containing different photosensitizers (protoporphyrin IX (PpIX), pheophorbide a (Pba), and protoporphyrin IX dimethyl ester (PpIX-DME)) has been synthesized with a significant improvement in water solubility and potential for PDT applications compared to the individual photosensitizers (PSs). Conjugation of PpIX, Pba, and PpIX-DME to the poly( N-isopropylacrylamide) chain was achieved using the dispersion polymerization method. This study describes how the use of nanohydrogel structures to deliver a photosensitizer with low water solubility and high aggregation tendencies in polar solvents overcomes these limitations...

Solid-state conducting polymers usually have highly conjugated macromolecular backbones and require intentional doping in order to achieve high electrical conductivities. Conversely, single-component, charge-neutral macromolecules could be synthetically simpler and have improved processibility and ambient stability. We show that poly(4-glycidyloxy-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl), a nonconjugated radical polymer with a subambient glass transition temperature, underwent rapid solid-state charge transfer reactions and had an electrical conductivity of up to 28 siemens per meter over channel lengths up to 0...

The elbow is one of the more difficult joints in which to obtain good results. Common issues include placement of correct portals, neuropraxia, ankylosis, heterotopic bone formation, and simple failure of the procedure. Common solutions include portal placement safeguards, nerve protection, early motion and cryocompression, oral or injectable steroids, radiation therapy, secure stabilization, and postoperative protection and rehabilitation based on available evidence and imaging.

We herein report the synthesis and analysis of a novel aza-BODIPY-antibody conjugate, formed by controlled and regioselective bioconjugation methodology. Employing the clinically relevant antibody, which targets HER2 positive cancers, represents an excellent example of an antibody targeting strategy for this class of near-IR emitting fluorophore. The NIR fluorescence and binding properties were validated through in vitro studies using live cell confocal imaging.

Exploitation of photosensitizers as payloads for antibody-based anticancer therapeutics offers a novel alternative to the small pool of commonly utilized cytotoxins. However, existing bioconjugation methodologies are incompatible with the requirement of increased antibody loading without compromising antibody function, stability, or homogeneity. Herein, we describe the first application of dendritic multiplier groups to allow the loading of more than 4 porphyrins to a full IgG antibody in a site-specific and highly homogeneous manner...

Novel therapies are needed for patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (MM). We conducted a multicenter, phase 1 study in advanced hematological malignancies to assess the safety, efficacy, and recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of oral selinexor, a selective inhibitor of the nuclear export protein XPO1. In the dose-escalation phase, 25 patients with heavily pretreated MM (22) or Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia (3) were administered selinexor (3-60 mg/m2 ) in 8 or 10 doses per 28-day cycle. In the dose-expansion phase, 59 patients with MM received selinexor at 45 or 60 mg/m2 with 20 mg dexamethasone, twice weekly in 28-day cycles, or selinexor (40 or 60 mg flat dose) without corticosteroids in 21-day cycles...
