OBJECTIVE: Despite the awareness and familiarity of almost every medical professional with the cauda equine compression syndrome (CES), risk factors for a poor prognosis of the disease remain elusive. Even the relationship between subsequent outcome and the time elapsed from the time of appearance of symptoms to surgery taking place remain obscure. The aim of our study, therefore, was to analyze a relatively large population of our own patients studied consecutively, to identify outcome predictors for CES and to propose a clinical score for CES symptoms (Berlin CES score)...

Limb use, an indicator of hemispheric functioning, may be a useful predictor of cognitive bias and hence vulnerability to welfare risk. The relationship between cognitive bias and motor asymmetry, however, has been subject to little investigation. This study explored the association between motor asymmetry and cognitive bias in the domestic dog, a species that displays lateral bias in the form of paw preferences and exhibits positive and negative affective states. Thirty pet dogs had their paw preferences assessed using the Kong ball test...

Using ab initio approaches accounting for environmental effects, we investigate the ground- and excited-state properties of four subporphyrinoids: subporphyrin, subporphyrazine, tribenzosubporphyrin and subphthalocyanine. We first show that the selected level of theory is able to reproduce the structure and NMR spectra of all compounds. The aromaticity of these four macrocyclic entities are next quantified and it is showed that their bowl-shape induces a very strong aromatic character. Next we analyze the spectral signatures of all four compounds using an approach going beyond the vertical approximation...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: The psychological effect of alopecia areata (AA) is well documented, but group interaction may help lessen this burden. We aimed to determine factors that draw patients with AA and their families to group events. METHODS: Surveys were administered at the annual alopecia areata bowling social in 2015 and 2016. This event is a unique opportunity for children with AA and their families to meet others with the disease and connect with local support group resources from the Minnesota branch of the National Alopecia Areata Foundation...

Live bird markets are common in certain regions of the U.S. and in other regions of the world. We experimentally tested the ability of a wild bird influenza A virus to transmit from index animals to naïve animals at varying animal densities in stacked cages in a simulated live bird market. Two and six mallards, five and twelve quail, and six and nine pheasants were used in the low-density and high-density stacks of cages, respectively. Transmission did not occur in the high-density stack of cages likely due to the short duration and relatively low levels of shedding, a dominance of oral shedding, and the lack of transmission to other mallards in the index cage...

H Listle, C Gutt
The diagnosis ileus is one of the most common indications for an emergency laparotomy. In 70% of the cases, the small intestine is affected, and in 30% it is the colorectum. While stuck hernias are a major cause in developing countries, the most common causes in western countries are postoperative adhesions that lead to an acute bowl obstruction. The timeframe for treatment of a complete mechanical obstruction is short as acute ischemia can lead to necrosis with bowl perforation within 6 h. The perioperative lethality for an emergency laparotomy due to an ileus ranges from 5-15%...

The first heterobimetallic sandwich-type aggregate formed by bowl-shaped corannulene trianion-radicals, C20H10˙(3-), has been synthesized using mixed-metal reduction of C20H10. The product was crystallographically characterized to reveal the self-assembly of [Cs(+)//(C20H10(3-))/4K(+)/(C20H10(3-))//Cs(+)], in which two triply-charged corannulene decks encapsulate a rectangle of four potassium ions (the K···K separations are 4.212(4) and 5.185(4) Å), with the exterior concave bowl cavities being selectively filled by one cesium ion each...

INTRODUCTION: Placental FasL is up-regulated in women with HELLP (hemolysis elevated liver enzyme and low platelet) syndrome and has been proposed to contribute to the liver damage seen in these patients. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine if an experimental rodent model of HELLP also had dysregulation of Fas/FasL compared to normal pregnant (NP) rats. We also set out to determine if blockade of the endothelin system regulated Fas/FasL expression in HELLP rats...

OBJECTIVE: Military families face numerous changes and stresses as they negotiate deployments and other life transitions. How they cope with these events is an important part of their overall well-being and resilience. This longitudinal study on coping in a sample of National Guard couples examined the association between the predeployment coping (active vs. avoidant) of each in the relationship, and their own and their significant others' mental health (anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder [PTSD]) and family well-being (dyadic adjustment and parenting stress) postdeployment...

Importance: The incidence of detected thyroid cancer cases has been increasing in the United States since 1975. The majority of thyroid cancers are differentiated cancers with excellent prognosis and long-term survival. Objective: To systematically review the benefits and harms associated with thyroid cancer screening and treatment of early thyroid cancer in asymptomatic adults to inform the US Preventive Services Task Force. Data Sources: Searches of MEDLINE, PubMed, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials for relevant studies published from January 1966 through January 2016, with active surveillance through December 2016...

We report a patient with acquired von Willebrand disease, associated with multiple myeloma. At one stage in his illness we were unable to analyse a sample sent in a serum separator tube, due to the presence of a gel within the separated serum layer. We suggest this was due to anomalous position of the gel because of the density of the sample caused by its high total protein concentration, exacerbated by fibrin strand formation because of inhibition of appropriate fibrin clot formation secondary to clotting disorder...

The development of artificial nanomotor systems capable of stimuli responsiveness is still posing many challenges. Here we demonstrate the self-assembly of a redox-responsive stomatocyte nanomotor system, which can be used for triggered drug release under biological reducing conditions. The redox sensitivity was introduced via the disulfide bridge between hydrophilic poly(ethylene glycol) block and hydrophobic polystyrene block. When incubating with endogenous reducing agent glutathione at a concentration comparable to the one within cells, the external PEG shells of these stimuli-responsive nanomotors were cleaved...

To date, the monitoring of fast bowling workloads across training and competition environments has been limited to counting total balls bowled. However, bowling at faster velocities is likely to require greater effort while also placing greater load on the bowler. This study investigated the relationship between prescribed effort and microtechnology outputs in fast bowlers to ascertain whether the technology could provide a more refined measure of workload. Twelve high performing fast bowlers (mean ± SD age; 20...

Western corn rootworm (WCR, Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte) is a major corn pest in the United States, causing annual losses of over $1 billion. One approach to protect against crop loss by this insect is the use of transgenic corn hybrids expressing one or more crystal (Cry) proteins derived from Bacillus thuringiensis. Cry34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1 together comprise a binary insecticidal toxin with specific activity against WCR. These proteins have been developed as insect resistance traits in commercialized corn hybrids resistant to WCR feeding damage...

Preventing adverse events among chronically ill older adults living in the community is a national health priority. The purpose of this study was to generate distinct risk profiles and compare these profiles in time to: hospitalization, emergency department (ED) visit or death in 371 community-dwelling older adults enrolled in a Medicare demonstration project. Guided by the Behavioral Model of Health Service Use, a secondary analysis was conducted using Latent Class Analysis to generate the risk profiles with Kaplan Meier methodology and log rank statistics to compare risk profiles...

BACKGROUND: A substantial proportion of the global burden of typhoid fever occurs in South Asia. Kathmandu, Nepal experienced a substantial increase in the number of typhoid fever cases (caused by Salmonella Typhi) between 2000 and 2003, which subsequently declined but to a higher endemic level than in 2000. This epidemic of S. Typhi coincided with an increase in organisms with reduced susceptibility against fluoroquinolones, the emergence of S. Typhi H58, and an increase in the migratory population in Kathmandu...

REVIEW
Guangyu Wang
Ion channels have been extensively reported as effectors of carbon monoxide (CO). However, the mechanisms of heme-independent CO action are still not known. Because most ion channels are heterologously expressed on human embryonic kidney cells that are cultured in Fe(3+)-containing media, CO may act as a small and strong iron chelator to disrupt a putative iron bridge in ion channels and thus to tune their activity. In this review CFTR and Slo1 BKCa channels are employed to discuss the possible heme-independent interplay between iron and CO...

We report the results of a broadband rotational spectroscopic study of corannulene, C20H10, all of its singly substituted (13)C isotopologues, and a complex of corannulene with one molecule of water. Corannulene is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) with a curved structure that results in a large dipole moment. Observation of (13)C isotopic species in natural abundance allowed us to precisely determine the molecular structure of corannulene. The differences between the experimental C-C bond lengths correlate to the double-bond character predicted using Kekule's resonance structures...
