Yilei Liu, Gabriella Pessi, Katharina Riedel, Leo Eberl
We used comparative proteome analysis to determine the target genes of the two quorum sensing (QS) circuits in the opportunistic pathogen Burkholderia cenocepacia: the N-acyl homoserine lactone (AHL)-based CepIR system and the BDSF (B urkholderia diffusible signal factor, cis-2-dodecenoic acid)-based RpfFR system. In this book chapter, we focus on the description of the practical procedure we currently use in the laboratory to perform a sensitive GeLC-MS/MS shotgun proteomics experiment; we also briefly describe the downstream bioinformatic data analysis...

BACKGROUND: Back pain is a leading contributor to disability, healthcare costs, and lost work. Family physicians are the most common first point of contact in the healthcare system for people with back pain, but physiotherapists (PTs) may be able to support the primary care team through evidence-based primary care. A cluster randomized trial is needed to determine the clinical, health system, and societal impact of a primary care model that integrates physiotherapists at the first visit for people with back pain...

The strong chemical bonds between C, N, and O play a central role in chemistry, and their formation and cleavage are critical steps in very many catalytic processes. The close-lying molecular orbital energies and large correlation effects pose a challenge to electronic structure calculations and have led to different bonding interpretations, most notably for C2. One way to approach this problem is by strict benchmark comparison of related systems. This work reports reference electronic structures and computed bond dissociation enthalpies D0 for C2, CN, CN(-), CO, N2, NO, NO(+), O2 and related systems C2(+) and C2(-) at chemical accuracy (∼1 kcal/mol or 4 kJ/mol) using CCSD(T)/aug-cc-pV5Z, with additional benchmarks of HF, MP2, CCSD, explicitly correlated F12 methods, and four density functionals...

With advances in information technology, "information-assisted instruction" has been gradually introduced to nursing education curricula. Specifically, the integration of an e-book system can effectively enhance nursing students' attention and interest. Most studies on nursing education that incorporated e-books have focused on the advantages of convenience and assistance provided by e-books. Few studies have addressed community health nursing and off-campus practice activities in relation to suitable teaching strategies for learning activities...

Given fragmentation between mental health and criminal justice systems, we tested the feasibility of implementing a potential new form of pre-booking jail diversion. Our "linkage system" consists of three steps: (i) individuals with serious mental illnesses and an arrest history give special consent to be enrolled in a statewide database; (ii) if an officer has an encounter with an enrolled patient and runs a routine background check, he or she receives an electronic message to call; and (iii) the "linkage specialist" provides brief telephonic assistance to the officer...

In the past decade, automated microscopy has become an important tool for the drug discovery and development process. The establishment of imaging modalities as screening tools depended on technological breakthroughs in the domain of automated microscopy and automated image analysis. These types of assays are often referred to as high content screening or high content analysis (HCS/HCA). The driving force to adopt imaging for drug development is the quantity and quality of cellular information that can be collected and the enhanced physiological relevance of cellular screening compared to biochemical screening...

Inborn errors of immunity are the cause of the primary immunodeficiency diseases, an extremely diverse group of genetic defects that are inherited in Mendelian fashion and result in the impairment of development and/or function of key components of the immune system. Since the last publication of this chapter in 2011, there have been approximately 100 new primary immunodeficiency diseases officially classified by the "Expert Committee for Primary Immunodeficiency" who met in 2015 and the numbers will continue to rise with the continued evolution and widespread adoption of genomic technologies...

Vaccine is the one of the greatest inventions of modern medicine that has contributed most to the relief of human misery and the exciting increase in life expectancy. In 1796, an English country physician, Edward Jenner, discovered that inoculating mankind with cowpox can protect them from smallpox (Riedel S, Edward Jenner and the history of smallpox and vaccination. Proceedings (Baylor University. Medical Center) 18(1):21, 2005). Based on the vaccination worldwide, we finally succeeded in the eradication of smallpox in 1977 (Henderson, Vaccine 29:D7-D9, 2011)...

Traditionally, forensic DNA analysis has required highly skilled forensic geneticists in a dedicated laboratory to generate short tandem repeat (STR) profiles. STR profiles are routinely used either to associate or exclude potential donors of forensic biological evidence. The typing of forensic reference samples has become more demanding, especially with the requirement in some jurisdictions to DNA profile arrestees. The Rapid DNA (RDNA) platform, the RapidHIT(®) ID (IntegenX(®), Pleasanton, CA), is a fully automated system capable of processing reference samples in approximately 90min with minimal human intervention...

The complement system is a group of proteins, which function in plasma to assist the innate immunity in rapid clearance of pathogens. The complement system also contributes to coordination of the adaptive immune response. Complement Activation Related Pseudo Allergy or CARPA is a life-threatening condition commonly reported with certain types of drugs and nanotechnology-based combination products. While CARPA symptoms are similar to that of anaphylaxis, the mechanism behind this pathology does not involve IgE and is mediated by the complement system...

Healthcare reform typically involves orchestrating a policy change, mediated through some form of operational, systems, financial, process or practice intervention. The aim is to improve the ways in which care is delivered to patients. In our book 'Health Systems Improvement Across the Globe: Success Stories from 60 Countries', we gathered case-study accomplishments from 60 countries. A unique feature of the collection is the diversity of included countries, from the wealthiest and most politically stable such as Japan, Qatar and Canada, to some of the poorest, most densely populated or politically challenged, including Afghanistan, Guinea and Nigeria...

Despite decades of research on India's plural health care market, the practices of many local health traditions outside the allopathic and codified traditions are under-studied. Drawing on interview and observational data, this paper explores the space in which indigenous traditional Khasi healers in Meghalaya state, northeast India, practice. Khasi indigenous healers describe themselves as doktor sla, plant doctors, to distinguish themselves from doktor kot, or book doctors. This distinction operates as a rhetorical resource, utilised to carve a distinct sphere of expertise in relation to the allopathic sector, and to mark claims for the specifically local appropriateness of traditional practices within a shifting market of state-sponsored provision...

The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is plagued by abnormally high no-show and cancellation rates that reduce the productivity and efficiency of its medical outpatient clinics. We address this issue by developing a dynamic scheduling system that utilizes mobile computing via geo-location data to estimate the likelihood of a patient arriving on time for a scheduled appointment. These likelihoods are used to update the clinic's schedule in real time. When a patient's arrival probability falls below a given threshold, the patient's appointment is canceled...
