We created a composite risk factor index which includes 6 risk factors (diabetes, hypertension, obesity, depression, sedentary lifestyle, and current smoking) previously shown to be associated with cognitive decline (CD) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) as well as cardiovascular disease (CVD). Using 2011 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System results for 95,147 adults ages ≥45years we found that 77.3% of study adults reported ≥1 risk factor (RF) while <1% reported all 6. Reporting any RFs increased risk for CD and CVD, with a dose-response gradient shown for increasing numbers of RFs from 0 to 6...

Circadian typology and sleep quality may be essential factors associated with the promotion of resilience. However, previous studies investigating the association between circadian typology and resilience did not analyze the effects of sleep quality on resilience. Thus, the present study evaluated the association between circadian typology and resilience in Korean college students after controlling for sleep quality. Additionally, this study investigated several sleep-related variables, including sleep duration, social jetlag and sunlight exposure during the daytime, to examine the modifiable behavioral features of morningness and also investigated whether the findings regarding morningness-related modifiable habits were associated with resilience...

The androgen signaling pathway serves an important role in the development of prostate cancer. β-Catenin is an androgen receptor (AR) cofactor and augments AR signaling. Glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β), a target of phosphorylated serine/threonine protein kinase B (p-Akt), regulates β-catenin stability. In addition, β-catenin, a coregulator of AR, physically interacts with AR and enhances AR-mediated target gene transcription. The multifunctional glycoprotein cluster of differentiation (CD) 147 is highly expressed on the cell surface of the majority of cancer cells, and it promotes tumor invasion, metastasis and growth...

A case study was undertaken to assess the risk of sewage-irrigated soils in relation to the transfer of trace elements to rice and wheat grain. For this purpose, peri-urban agricultural lands under the Keshopur Effluent Irrigation Scheme (KEIS) of Delhi were selected. These agricultural lands have been receiving irrigation through sewage effluents since 1979. Sewage effluent, groundwater, soil, and plant (rice and wheat grain) samples were collected with GPS coordinates from this peri-urban area. Under wheat crop, sewage irrigation for four decades resulted into a significant buildup of zinc (141 %), copper (219 %), iron (514 %), nickel (75...

The overexpression or abnormal activation of cyclo‑oxygenase‑2 (COX‑2) has been reported in pancreatic cancer cells. NS‑398, a selective inhibitor of COX‑2, is unable to inhibit pancreatic cancer cell proliferation, as determined by a Cell Counting Kit 8 assay. However, it does increase cancer cell invasiveness, and therefore the invasiveness of the PANC‑1 cells was determined, along with the activation of P38, which was assessed by western blotting. In the present study, to evaluate the mechanisms underlying the action of NS‑398 in pancreatic cancer cells, PANC‑1 cells were treated with NS‑398, and the invasion signaling pathways of cluster of differentiation (CD)147‑matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)‑2 and mitogen‑activated protein kinases were evaluated...

Forty-two hydrocarbon-degrading bacterial strains were isolated from the soil heavily contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons. Forty-one strains were identified based on their whole-cell fatty acid profiles using the MIDI-MIS method. Thirty-three of them belong to species Rhodococcus erythropolis, while the others to the genera Rahnella (4), Serratia (3) and Proteus (1). Isolates were screened for their ability to produce biosurfactants/bioemulsifiers. For all of them the activity of several mechanisms characteristic for plant growth-promoting bacteria was also determined...

OBJECTIVE: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is associated with elevated levels of anxiety and depression and a reduction in health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Nonadherence to treatment is also frequent in IBD and compromises outcomes. Religious coping plays a role in the adaptation to several chronic diseases. However, the influence of religious coping on IBD-related psychological distress, HRQoL, and treatment adherence remains unknown. METHOD: This cross-sectional study recruited 147 consecutive patients with either Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis...

Ligand-mediated polymeric micelles have enormous potential for improving the efficacy of glioma therapy. Linear-dendritic drug-polymer conjugates composed of doxorubicin (DOX) and polyethylene glycol (PEG) were synthesized with or without modification of choline derivate (CD). The resulting MeO-PEG-DOX8 and CD-PEG-DOX8 could self-assemble into polymeric micelles with a nanosized diameter around 30 nm and a high drug loading content up to 40.6 and 32.3%, respectively. The optimized formulation 20% CD-PEG-DOX8 micelles had superior cellular uptake and antitumor activity against MeO-PEG-DOX8 micelles...

Crohn's disease (CD) is a major subtype of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Herb-partitioned moxibustion (HPM) has been proven to be effective in treating CD by a large amount of clinical and experimental researches. MiRNAs (microRNAs) are increasingly recognized as important posttranscriptional regulators of inflammatory genes. In this study, we established experimental CD rat models and investigated the miRNAs associated with the onset of experimental CD; then, we further identified CD-related miRNAs that were regulated by HPM and explored the relationship between CD and the potential target genes of involved miRNAs...
