PURPOSE: A growing number of research studies have implicated the cerebellum in emotional processing and regulation, especially with regard to negative emotional memories. However, there currently are no studies showing functional changes in the cerebellum as a result of treatment for traumatic stress symptoms. The Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is an intervention designed to help improve symptoms related to traumatic stress using an integrative approach that combines emotional, cognitive, and motor processing, with a particular focus on autonomic nervous system regulation...

Treatment of psoriasis and its variants with concomitant hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is complex. The treatment options are limited because the immunosuppressive drugs used for managing severe psoriasis are mostly associated with end-organ damage particularly hepatotoxicity. On the other hand, Interferon therapy has the potential to exacerbate psoriasis and psoriatic arthropathy. There is emerging data regarding the use of etanercept, a TNFα inhibitor in such cases. Though its cost and availability limits its use; but when combined with Interferon therapy and ribavirin for HCV, it has shown good results...

BACKGROUND: In some institutions, the current blood ordering practice does not discriminate minimally invasive endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) from open procedures, with consequent increasing costs and likelihood of blood product wastage for EVARs. This limitation in practice can possibly be addressed with the development of a reliable prediction model for transfusion risk in EVAR patients. We used the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) database to create a model for prediction of intraoperative blood transfusion occurrence in patients undergoing EVAR...

BACKGROUND: Maternal exposure to environmental stressors poses a risk to fetal development. Oxidative stress (OS), microglia activation, and inflammation are three tightly linked mechanisms that emerge as a causal factor of neurodevelopmental anomalies associated with prenatal ethanol exposure. Antioxidants such as glutathione (GSH) and CuZnSOD are perturbed, and their manipulation provides evidence for neuroprotection. However, the cellular and molecular effects of GSH alteration in utero on fetal microglia activation and inflammation remain elusive...

Preoperative mapping of language areas using fMRI greatly depends on the paradigms used, as different tasks harness distinct capabilities to activate speech processing areas. In this study, we compared the ability of 3 covert speech paradigms: Silent Sentence Completion (SSC), category naming (CAT) and verbal fluency (FAS), in localizing the Wernicke's area and studied the association between genomic markers and functional activation. Fifteen right-handed healthy volunteers and 35 mixed-handed patients were included...

INTRODUCTION: Osteonecrosis is an ischemic pathologic process associated with a number of conditions affecting a range of age groups. The problem faced in the management of osteonecrosis is whether conservative treatment is a viable and effective option for patients. In this systematic review, we investigated the efficacy of various nonoperative treatment modalities for hip and knee osteonecrosis, including pharmacological management and biophysical modalities. METHODS: We identified 16 studies based on electronic searches through the PubMed, Embase, CINAHL Plus, and Cochrane databases from January 2001 to November 2015...

BACKGROUND: Despite showing a prognostic value in general surgical patients, preoperative asymptomatic elevated white blood cell (WBC) count is not considered a risk factor for cardiac surgery. Whereas there is sporadic evidence of its value as a preoperative risk marker, it has not been looked at methodically as a specific index of outcome during cardiac surgery. Using a national database we sought to determine the relationship between preoperative WBC count and postoperative outcome in cardiac surgical patients...

Glycation induced advanced glycation end products (AGEs) of proteins formed as a result of Maillard reaction is currently at the heart of a number of pathological conditions. The formation of chemically stable AGEs can permanently alter protein structure and function; hence can serve as an implication in long term complications. Cystatins with high amyloidogenic inclination are implicated in various diseases including cancer and neurodegenerative conditions. The aggregates of cystatin purified from caprine brain have been studied on addition of glucose and ribose using UV absorption, fluorescence emission, circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy (TEM)...

Several studies show that itch and scratching cannot only be induced by pruritogens like histamine or cowhage, but also by the presentation of certain (audio-) visual stimuli like pictures on crawling insects or videos showing other people scratching. This phenomenon is coined "Contagious itch" (CI). Due to the fact that CI is more profound in patients with the chronic itchy skin disease atopic dermatitis (AD), we believe that it is highly relevant to study brain processing of CI in this group. Knowledge on brain areas involved in CI in AD-patients can provide us with useful hints regarding non-invasive treatments that AD-patients could profit from when they are confronted with itch-inducing situations in daily life...

An efficient one-pot synthetic procedure has been developed for the preparation of heteroarenyl-benzimidazoles via oxidative Csp3-H functionalization with o-phenylenediamine using I2-DMSO in open air from easily available starting materials. Based on a logical plan a spectrum of multi fundamental reactions like iodination, Kornblum oxidation and amination were brought into one-pot. By using this simple method a library of heteroarenyl-benzimidazoles derivatives (3a-t and 5a-g) and heteroarenyl-benzothiazole (3u) have been synthesized in good to excellent yield and screened for their cytotoxicity against a group of four human cancer cell lines...

A Chlorella sp. was cultivated in a photobioreactor under different experimental conditions to investigate its acclimation to high-CO2 exposures. When the microalgae was grown under controlled flue gas sparging and optimised nutrients, the biomass concentration increased to 3.415±0.145gL(-1) and the maximum protein yield was obtained (57.500±0.351% ww(-1)). However, when the culture was exposed to continuous flue gas, the lowest biomass growth (1.665±0.129gL(-1)) was noted. Under these conditions, high carbohydrate and lipid values were recorded (38...

To determine a more precise and reliable method between Greulich-Pyle (GP) and MacKay's (MK) method for the determination of skeletal age in an Indian pediatric population. We carried out a cross sectional study for the assessment of skeletal age on the basis of examination of hand and wrist radiographs of 106 patients (1-15 years of age) who presented with soft tissue injury to hand by the GP and the MK method. These radiographs were evaluated by a radiologist and an orthopedic surgeon independently. In girls, the mean age difference between chronological and skeletal age was 8 months by the GP method, whereas it was 17 months by MK method...
