During the processing and handling of commercial blue crab (Callinectes sapidus), Listeria monocytogenes can potentially contaminate cooked meat and grow to hazardous levels. To manage this risk, predictive models are useful tools for designing and implementing preventive controls; however, no model specific for blue crab meat has been published or evaluated. In this study, a cocktail of L. monocytogenes strains was added to pasteurized blue crab meat, which was incubated at storage temperatures from 0 to 35°C...

BACKGROUND: Plasma cell myeloma (PCM) has been sporadically reported to occur simultaneously or subsequently to mature B lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs), predominantly chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). METHODS: We describe the clinical and laboratory findings of a 69-year-old male patient who developed plasma cell leukaemia (PCL) 8 years after an initial diagnosis of a low stage CD5+ B LPD and 3 years after treatment for LPD. RESULTS: The transition from a clinically indolent B LPD to an aggressive PCM was documented by bone marrow (BM) biopsy, while flow cytometric (FC) immunophenotyping conferred additional information by disclosing the co-existence of both disorders in BM and the presence of abnormal monotypic PCs in peripheral blood above PCL levels...

Herein a convenient synthetic method to obtain 2,2,3,3-tetrasilyltetrasilane 3 and 2,2,3,3,4,4-hexasilylpentasilane 4 on a multigram scale is presented. Proton-coupled (29) Si NMR spectroscopy and single-crystal X-ray crystallography enabled unequivocal structural assignment. Owing to their unique properties, which are reflected in their nonpyrophoric character on contact with air and their enhanced light absorption above 250 nm, 3 and 4 are valuable precursors for liquid-phase deposition (LPD) and the processing of thin silicon films...

OBJECTIVE: The tumors of the head of the pancreas are one of the leading causes of cancer-related death in Western countries. The current gold standard for these tumors is a Whipple procedure. This procedure did not change in its surgical steps since when it was initially introduced in 1935. More recently, a laparoscopic approach with similar outcomes has been described. The aim of this paper is to describe the laparoscopic surgical technique performed in our unit, reporting single center postoperative outcomes...

Catheter associated thrombosis is an ongoing problem. Omniphobic coatings based on tethering biocompatible liquid lubricants on self-assembled monolayers of hydrophobic organosilanes attenuate clotting on surfaces. Herein we report an efficient, non-invasive and robust process for coating catheters with an antithrombotic, omniphobic lubricant-infused coating produced using chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of hydrophobic fluorine-based organosilanes. Compared with uncoated catheters, CVD coated catheters significantly attenuated thrombosis via the contact pathway of coagulation...

Childhood malnutrition is a risk factor for mental disorders, such as major depression and anxiety. Evidence shows that similar early life adversities induce sex-dependent epigenetic reprogramming. However, little is known about how genes are specifically affected by early malnutrition and the implications for males and females respectively. One relevant target is neuropeptide Y (NPY), which regulates both stress and food-intake. We studied maternal low protein diet (LPD) during pregnancy/lactation in mice...

Although recent accumulative data reveal the clinicopathogenesis of regression in methotrexate-induced lymphoproliferative disorders (MTX-LPDs), the precise understanding including this category remains controversial. In this study, we analyzed 62 patients with MTX-LPD. Forty-three patients showed regression (Reg group), with high rates of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and LPD (90 and 88%, respectively). Among the 43 patients of the Reg group, 14 patients (33%) relapsed. The median duration before relapse in the Reg group was 10...

A Jenitta, R Samson Ravindran
In modern health-care, for evidence-based diagnosis, there is a requirement for an efficient image retrieval approach to retrieve the cases of interest that have similar characteristics from the large image databases. This paper presents a feature extraction approach that aims at extracting texture features present in the medical images using Local Pattern Descriptor (LPD) and Gray-level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM). As a main contribution, a novel local pattern named Local Mesh Vector Co-occurrence Pattern (LMVCoP) has been proposed by concatenating the Local Mesh Co-occurrence Pattern (LMCoP) and the Local Vector Co-occurrence Pattern (LVCoP)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Several types of unexplained extra-hepatic manifestations, including haematological disorders, have been reported in the context of hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection. However, the underlying mechanism(s) of these manifestations are unknown. We provide evidence that HEV has an extra-hepatic endothelial tropism that can engage cutaneous T cells towards clonality. PATIENT AND METHODS: A patient with a CD30(+) cutaneous T cell lymphoproliferative disorder (T-LPD) and biopsy-proven chronic HEV infection received 3 rounds of oral ribavirin treatment administered either without or with interferon and eventually achieved a sustained virological response (SVR)...

BACKGROUND: Consumers are becoming increasingly interested in food containing appropriately high concentration of intramuscular fat (IMF) and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). The supplementation of feed with antioxidants decreases degradation of lipids in muscles thereby enhances nutritional and sensory properties of meat. Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of adding oregano essential oil (OEO) and benzoic acid (BA) to low-protein, amino acid-supplemented diets on meat quality, sensory profile, fatty acid composition, and lipid oxidation of longissimus thoracis (LT) muscle in pigs...

In this study, the yield and yield components were studied using a conventional variety Zhongshuang 11 (ZS 11) and a hybrid variety Zhongyouza 12 (ZYZ 12) at varying plant densities. The increase in plant density led to an initial increase in seed yield and pod numbers per unit area, followed by a decrease. The optimal plant density was 58.5 × 10(4) plants ha(-1) in both ZS 11 and ZYZ 12. The further researches on physiological traits showed a rapid decrease in the green leaf area index (GLAI) and chlorophyll content and a remarkable increase in malondialdehyde content in high plant density (HPD) population than did the low plant density (LPD) population, which indicated the rapid leaf senescence...
