Bivalves are commonly used in biomonitoring programs to track pollutants. Several features, including its filter-feeding abilities, cumulatively argue in favour of the use of the Asian clam (Corbicula fluminea) as a biosentinel and an ecotoxicological model. Filtration in bivalves is very sensitive to external stimuli and its control is dictated by regulation of the opening/closure of the valves, which may be used as an avoidance defence against contaminants. Here, we investigate the filter-feeding behaviour of the Asian clam as an endpoint for assessing exposure to pollutants, driven by two complementary goals: (i) to generate relevant and sensitive toxicological information based on the ability of C...

Patients with critical limb ischemia necessitate immediate intervention to restore blood flow to the affected limb. Endovascular procedures are currently preferred for these patients. We describe the case of an 80-year-old female patient who presented to our department with ischemic rest pain and ulceration of the left limb. The patient had history of left femoral popliteal bypass surgery, femoral thromboendarterectomy and patch angioplasty of the same limb 2 years ago. Doppler sonography and magnetic resonance angiography revealed an occlusion of the left superficial femoral artery (SFA) and popliteal artery and of all three infra-popliteal arteries...

The Hippo pathway is a central regulator of organ size and tissue homeostasis. Hippo kinases and adaptor proteins mediate the phosphorylation and inactivation of YAP and TAZ, two closely related transcription co-activators. The Hippo pathway responds to a variety of extracellular and intracellular signals, spanning from cell-cell contact and mechanical cues to ligands of G-protein-coupled receptors and metabolic avenues. In some instances, YAP/TAZ activation is tuned by forces that bypass the Hippo kinase module, adding further complexity to the biology of the pathway...

(1) Background: TP53 deficiency remains a major adverse event in Multiple Myeloma (MM) despite therapeutic progresses. As it is not possible to target TP53 deficiency with pharmacological agents, we explored the possibility of activating another p53 family member, p73, which has not been well studied in myeloma. (2) Methods: Using human myeloma cell lines (HMCLs) with normal or abnormal TP53 status, we assessed TP73 methylation and expression. (3) Results: Using microarray data, we reported that TP73 is weakly expressed in 47 HMCLs and mostly in TP53 wild type (TP53wt) HMCLs (p = 0...

Mutations of isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) gene are most common in glioma, arguably preceding all known genetic alterations during tumor development. IDH1 mutations nearly invariably target the enzymatic active site Arg132, giving rise to the predominant IDH1R132H. Cells harboring IDH1 R132H -heterozygous mutation produce 2-hydroxyglutarate (2-HG), which results in histone and DNA hypermethylation. Although exogenous IDH1 R132H transduction has been shown to promote anchorage-independent growth, the biological role of IDH1R132H in glioma remains debatable...

The portable high efficiency air filtration (PHEAF) device is used to control particulate matter (PM) generated from construction-type activities occurring within the built environment. Examples of activities where PHEAF devices are mobilized include building renovation, asbestos abatement, remediation of microbial contamination and lead-based paint projects. Designed for use on short-term, temporary projects the PHEAF device captures airborne PM using a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. This study sought to evaluate the capture efficiency of the PHEAF device in a field setting...

Photoreceptor degenerative diseases cause irreparable blindness through the progressive loss of photoreceptor cells in the retina. Retinal prostheses are an emerging treatment for photoreceptor degenerative diseases that seek to restore vision by artificially stimulating the surviving retinal neurons in the hope of eliciting comprehensible visual perception in patients. Current retinal prostheses have demonstrated success in restoring limited vision to patients using an array of electrodes to electrically stimulate the retina but face substantial physical barriers in restoring high acuity, natural vision to patients...

Purpose: Sodium nitroprusside is a vasodilator frequently used in the coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) setting. However, the price of a 50-mg vial of sodium nitroprusside increased from $5.00 in 2003 to up to $900 in 2016. The purpose of this review is to help health systems balance high-quality patient care with economic responsibility. Methods: A MEDLINE literature search was performed using the search terms "nitroprusside" and "coronary artery bypass." All English-language trials in human subjects assessing the use of sodium nitroprusside in the setting of CABG were evaluated...

Brain tumor is a lethal, fast growing cancer and a difficult case for treatment. Receptor-mediated endocytosis has been recognized as one of the most effective methods for drug delivery to brain tissue by overcoming obstacles associated with conventional therapeutics. In this work, a targeted theranostic drug delivery system (DDS) was prepared based on gold‑iron oxide nanocomposites (Fe3O4@Au NCs). Lipoic acid-curcumin (LA-CUR) was synthesized and introduced as a novel anticancer drug, and glutathione (GSH) was exploited as the targeting ligand...

Genotoxic agents cause modifications of genomic DNA, such as alkylation, oxidation, bulky adduct formation, and strand breaks, which potentially induce mutations and changes to the structure or number of genes. Majority of point mutations are generated during error-prone bypass of modified nucleotides (translesion DNA synthesis, TLS); however, when TLS fails, replication forks stalled at lesions eventually result in more lethal effects, formation of double-stranded breaks (DSBs). Here we compared sensitivities to various compounds among mouse embryonic fibroblasts derived from wild-type and knock-out mice lacking one of the three Y-family TLS DNA polymerases (Polη, Polι, and Polκ) or all of them (TKO)...

The importance of antithrombotic therapy following reconstructive operations on arteries below the inguinal ligament is beyond question. The pharmaceutical market offers a wide variety of antiaggregant and anticoagulant agents, with many studies (including randomised and multicenter ones) performed worldwide on the problem of choosing optimal antithrombotic therapy in the postoperative period after arterial reconstructions. Nevertheless, the problem of selecting adequate antithrombotic therapy after shunting operations remains undetermined...

Vasoplegic syndrome, characterized by low systemic vascular resistance and hypotension in the presence of normal or supranormal cardiac function, is a frequent complication of cardiovascular surgery. It is associated with a diffuse systemic inflammatory response and is mediated largely through cellular hyperpolarization, high levels of inducible nitric oxide, and a relative vasopressin deficiency. Cardiopulmonary bypass is a particularly strong precipitant of the vasoplegic syndrome, largely due to its association with nitric oxide production and severe vasopressin deficiency...

Inhibitor formation is among the most severe complications of hemophilia treatment. With a cumulative incidence of ∼30% in those with severe hemophilia A and ∼3% in those with severe hemophilia B, inhibitors are caused by a T-cell response directed against infused coagulation factor; these inhibitors neutralize factor VIII or IX activity and disrupt normal hemostasis. Inhibitor patients become unresponsive to standard factor treatment and, as an alternative, use bypass treatment (eg, recombinant factor VIIa or factor VIII inhibitor bypass activity)...

Recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) is a bypassing agent widely used both in the treatment and prevention of hemorrhagic complications due to hemophilia with inhibitor. In such cases, antihemophilic factors cannot be used. The normal physiology of factor VII/ factor VIIa (FVII/FVIIa) in the hemostatic process requires the presence of tissue factor (TF) that links to FVII leading to a FVIIa-TF complex which activates both factor X and factor IX. The therapeutic use of rFVIIa requires high amount of FVIIa...

Therapeutic engineering of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) has enabled development of new medicines to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. These injectable analogues achieve robust glycemic control by increasing concentrations of 'GLP-1 equivalents' (∼50 pM). Similar levels of endogenous GLP-1 occur following gastric bypass surgery, and mechanistic studies indicate glucose lowering by these procedures is driven by GLP-1. Therefore, due to the remarkable signaling and secretory capacity of the GLP-1 system, we sought to discover mechanisms that raise GLP-1 pharmacologically...

BACKGROUND: During cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in children, anesthesia maintained by sevoflurane administered via the oxygenator is increasingly common. Anesthetic uptake and requirement may be influenced by the non-physiological conditions during hypothermic CPB. Narcotrend-processed EEG monitoring may, therefore, be useful to guide the administration of sevoflurane during this phase. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this prospective, clinical, observational study was to assess the correlation between body temperature, Narcotrend Index (NI) and administered sevoflurane in children during CPB...
