A novel, pure, synthetic material is presented that promotes the repair of full-thickness skin wounds. The active component is tropoelastin and leverages its ability to promote new blood vessel formation and its cell recruiting properties to accelerate wound repair. Key to the technology is the use of a novel heat-based, stabilized form of human tropoelastin which allows for tunable resorption. This implantable material contributes a tailored insert that can be shaped to the wound bed, where it hydrates to form a conformable protein hydrogel...

INTRODUCTION: Limited information exists regarding short-term morbidity in the resection of lymphatic malformations. In order to make informed collaborative medical decisions, clinicians and families would benefit from information on 30-day outcomes and the expected course associated with surgical excision of lymphatic malformations. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted to develop a case series of patients who underwent resection of lymphatic malformation at a pediatric tertiary care center between June 1, 2007 and September 30, 2016...

The feeding patterns of species of large sharks on human corpses are well documented in the literature however, that of smaller sharks are less known. This may introduce uncertainty in the medicolegal conclusions. For that reason, accurate identification of patterns of shark predation is very relevant, specifically in areas bordered by the sea. In the case described here, an unidentified lesion was noted on the body of a victim of a scuba diving accident off the island of Kauai, in Hawaii. The aim of this study was to identify the origin of the lesion and investigate its potential to inform on the context of death and/or decomposition...

The turnover rates of tissues and their constituent molecules give us insights into animals' physiological demands and their functional flexibility over time. Thus far, most studies of this kind have focused on protein turnover, and few have considered lipid turnover despite an increasing appreciation of the functional diversity of this class of molecules. We measured the turnover rates of neutral and polar lipids from the pectoralis muscles of a model songbird, the Zebra Finch ( Taeniopygia guttata , N=65), in a 256 day C 3 / C 4 diet shift experiment, with tissue samples taken at ten time points...

Nephronophthisis-related ciliopathies (NPHP-RC) are a group of disorders that present with end-stage renal failure in childhood/adolescence, kidney cysts, retinal degeneration, and cerebellar hypoplasia. One disorder that shares clinical features with NPHP-RC is Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS). Serologically defined colon cancer antigen 8 (SDCCAG8; also known as NPHP10 and BBS16) is an NPHP gene that is also associated with BBS. To better understand the patho-mechanisms of NPHP and BBS caused by loss of SDCCAG8 function, we characterized an SDCCAG8 mouse model (Sdccag8Tn(sb-Tyr)2161B...

There is an increased incidence of heart failure in individuals with diabetes mellitus (DM). The co-existence of kidney disease in DM exacerbates the cardiovascular prognosis. Researchers have attempted to combine the critical features of heart failure, using transverse aortic constriction, with DM in mice but variable findings have been reported. Furthermore, kidney outcomes have not been assessed in this setting thus its utility as a model of heart failure in DM and kidney disease is unknown. We generated a mouse model of obesity, hyperglycemia and mild kidney pathology by feeding male C57BL/6J mice a high fat diet (HFD)...

We demonstrate the generation of block copolymer (BCP) line patterns oriented orthogonal to a very small (minimal) topographic trench pattern over arbitrarily large areas using solvent vapor annealing (SVA). Increasing the thickness of BCP films induced an orthogonal alignment of the BCP cylindrical microdomains, where full orthogonal alignment of the cylindrical microdomains with respect to the trench direction was obtained at a film thickness of corresponding to 1.70L0. A capillary flow of the solvent across the trenches could be attributed to a critical factor in the alignment of the cylindrical microdomains...

BACKGROUND: International guideline recommendations for the use of folate and its derivatives in the treatment of unipolar depressive disorders are confused and contradictory, perhaps reflecting wide variations in the underpinning evidence base. INTRODUCTION: We discuss differing methods of evidence synthesis in the formulation of international guideline recommendations. As an example we evaluated the efficacy of folate and its derivatives in unipolar depression via systematic review and meta-analysis...

AIM: Approximately 30% of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients carry FLT3 tyrosine kinase domain (TKD) mutations or internal tandem duplication (FLT3-ITD). Currently there is a paucity of compounds that are active against drug-resistant FLT3-ITD, which contains secondary mutations in the TKD, mainly at residues D835/F691. RESULTS: HSD1169, a novel compound, is active against FLT3-ITD (D835 or F691). HSD1169 is also active against T-LAK cell-originated protein kinase (TOPK), a collaborating kinase that is highly expressed in AML cell lines...

Bending the linear uranyl (UO 2 2+ ) cation represents both a significant challenge and opportunity within the field of actinide hybrid materials. As part of related efforts to engage the nominally terminal oxo atoms of uranyl cation in noncovalent interactions, we synthesized a new uranyl complex, [UO 2 (C 12 H 8 N 2 ) 2 (C 7 H 2 Cl 3 O 2 ) 2 ]·2H 2 O (complex 2), that featured both deviations from equatorial planarity and uranyl linearity from simple hydrothermal conditions. Based on this complex, we developed an approach to probe the nature and origin of uranyl bending within a family of hybrid materials, which was done via the synthesis of complexes 1-3 that display significant deviations from equatorial planarity and uranyl linearity (O-U-O bond angles between 162° and 164°) featuring 2,4,6-trihalobenzoic acid ligands (where Hal = F, Cl, and Br) and 1,10-phenanthroline, along with nine additional "nonbent" hybrid materials that either coformed with the "bent" complexes (4-6) or were prepared as part of complementary efforts to understand the mechanism(s) of uranyl bending (7-12)...

BACKGROUND: Staling of maize tortilla is a major drawback affecting their manufacture, commercialization and consumption. The development of methods that may help retard staling of maize tortilla is an ongoing research topic. In this work a novel, simple, economic and effective method is proposed, based on adding completely gelatinized nixtamalized maize flour dispersion (GMF, g kg-1 ) to the basic masa formulation recipe (water, 600 g kg-1 ; nixtamalized maize flour (NMF), 400 g kg-1 )), in substitution of 50, 100 and 150 g kg-1 of water...

Colorectal cancer (CRC) remains one of the leading causes of cancer related deaths in the United States. Currently, there are limited therapeutic options for patients suffering from CRC, none of which focus on the cell signaling mechanisms controlled by the popular kinase family, cyclin dependent kinases (CDKs). Here we evaluate a Pfizer developed compound, CP668863, that inhibits cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (CDK5) in neurodegenerative disorders. CDK5 has been implicated in a number of cancers, most recently as an oncogene in colorectal cancers...

Mass effect has demonstrated prognostic significance for glioblastoma, but is poorly quantified. Here we define and characterize a novel neuroimaging parameter, lateral ventricle displacement (LVd), which quantifies mass effect in glioblastoma patients. LVd is defined as the magnitude of displacement from the center of mass of the lateral ventricle volume in glioblastoma patients relative to that a normal reference brain. Pre-operative MR images from 214 glioblastoma patients from The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) were segmented using iterative probabilistic voxel labeling (IPVL)...
