The traditional thermal Mannich reaction is unsuitable for preparing polymerizable N-methylene amino substituted acrylamides and methacrylamides. Herein we provide a facile multi-gram high yield synthesis of these monomeric precursors to stimuli-responsive polymers by the addition of acrylamides and methacrylamides onto in situ generated or freshly isolated methylene Schiff base (iminium) salts. The X-ray crystal structure of the hydrated iminium salt, 1-(hydroxymethyl)azocan-1-ium chloride and monomer·HCl salt (N-[(azocan-1-yl)methyl]prop-2-enamide hydrochloride) is described...

OBJECTIVE: As exercise intolerance and exercise-induced myalgia are commonly encountered in metabolic myopathies, functional screening tests are commonly used during the diagnostic work-up. Our objective was to evaluate the accuracy of isometric handgrip test (IHT) and progressive cycle ergometer test (PCET) to identify McArdle disease and myoadenylate deaminase (MAD) deficiency and to propose diagnostic algorithms using exercise-induced lactate and ammonia variations. METHODS: A prospective sample of 46 patients underwent an IHT and a PCET as part of their exercise-induced myalgia and intolerance evaluation...

BACKGROUND: Recurrent patellar instability incidence is 5.8/100,000 population, and recurrent dislocations are reported in the range of 15-80%. Recurrent instability is multifactorial and can be associated with disorder of limb alignment, osseous development, congruity of the patella in the trochlea and soft tissue static and dynamic constraints. The multifactorial aetiology makes management challenging, and a lack studies in a heterogeneous population with robust clinical outcomes compounds this further...

For 130 years the diogenid genus Paguropsis Henderson, 1888 was considered monotypic for an unusual species, P. typica Henderson, 1888, described from the Philippines and seldom reported since. Although scantly studied, this species is known to live in striking symbiosis with a colonial sea anemone that the hermit can stretch back and forth like a blanket over its cephalic shield and part of cephalothoracic appendages, and thus the common name "blanket-crab". During a study of paguroid collections obtained during recent French-sponsored biodiversity campaigns in the Indo-West Pacific, numerous specimens assignable to Paguropsis were encountered...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Advances in diagnostic methods mean that co-infections are increasingly being detected in clinical practice, yet their significance is not always obvious. In parallel, basic science studies are increasingly investigating interactions between pathogens to try to explain real-life observations and elucidate biological mechanisms. RECENT FINDINGS: Co-infections may be insignificant, detrimental, or even beneficial, and these outcomes can occur through multiple levels of interactions which include modulation of the host response, altering the performance of diagnostic tests, and drug-drug interactions during treatment...

Isosorbide was functionalized with furoxan for the first time to give adducts that release nitric oxide up to 7.5 times faster than the commercial vasodilator, isosorbide-5-mononitrate (Is5N). The synthesis was facilitated by MeMgCl-mediated selective acetylation of isosorbide or selective deacetylation of isosorbide-2,5-diacetate, which was rationalized in terms of a more stable 5-alkoxide magnesium salt using DFT. Isosorbide-furoxans are safer to handle than Is5N due to greater thermal stability.

BACKGROUND: Due to high reinfection rates, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend retesting everyone diagnosed with chlamydia after treatment. However, retesting rates are often low, and research on retesting is limited. METHODS: Infertility Prevention Project (IPP) was a national chlamydia screening and treatment project in the United States. We completed a retrospective longitudinal analysis using IPP testing data from 8,266 women with at least 1 positive test result from 2010 to 2013...

INTRODUCTION: Dietary zinc (Zn) deficiency is a global problem, particularly in low-income and middle-income countries where access to rich, animal-source foods of Zn is limited due to poverty. In Pakistan, Zn deficiency affects over 40% of the adult female population, resulting in suboptimal immune status and increased likelihood of complications during pregnancy. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: We are conducting a double-blind, randomised controlled feeding study with cross-over design in a low-resource setting in Pakistan...

BACKGROUND: For patients with pulmonary hypertension, nutrition status is an independent predictor of morbidity and mortality, and energy expenditure can be strongly influenced by lung disease. Indirect calorimetry (IC) is the gold standard for measuring resting energy expenditure (REE), this study aimed to compare the results of REE estimated by different methods with those obtained by IC for patients with pulmonary hypertension. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study (n = 34), REE was estimated by bioelectrical impedance analysis and the predictive equations of Harris-Benedict, Food and Agriculture Organization / World Health Organization, Institute of Medicine, Cunningham, Katch-McArdle, and Mifflin-St Jeor...

Although 3D invasion assays have been developed, the challenge remains to study cells without affecting the integrity of their microenvironment. Traditional 3D assays such as the Boyden Chamber require that cells are displaced from the original culture location and moved to a new environment. Not only does this disrupt the cellular processes that are intrinsic to the microenvironment, but it often results in a loss of cells. These problems are especially challenging when dealing with cells that are either rare, or extremely sensitive to their microenvironment...

Acute skin toxicity in adjuvant breast radiation can be reduced with modern radiotherapy (RT) techniques. However, having reviewed the literature, we found no dosimetric constraint for acute skin toxicity that would be applicable to modern RT planning. This study aimed to identify dosimetric factors that are associated with higher rates of acute skin toxicity. A retrospective review was carried out including women who received adjuvant forward-planned intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) after breast-conserving surgery...

McArdle disease or glycogen storage disease (GSD) type V is a rare autosomal recessive inherited disorder in skeletal muscle metabolism leading to exercise intolerance, muscle cramps and in some cases to rhabdomyolysis and acute renal failure due to elevated serum myoglobin levels. Albeit the uterine smooth muscle is not affected, pregnancy and delivery can be physically strenuous and may require specific anesthesiologic care. However, data on pregnancy progress and outcome and on special implications linked to anesthesia in women with McArdle's disease is scarce, thus posing a challenge to pre- and peripartal management...

Background: It has been proposed that maternal folic-acid supplement use may alter the DNA-methylation patterns of the offspring during the in-utero period, which could influence development and later-life health outcomes. Evidence from human studies suggests a role for prenatal folate levels in influencing DNA methylation in early life, but this has not been extended to consider persistent effects into adulthood. Methods: To better elucidate the long-term impact of maternal folic acid in pregnancy on DNA methylation in offspring, we carried out an epigenome-wide association study (EWAS) nested within the Aberdeen Folic Acid Supplementation Trial (AFAST-a trial of two different doses: 0...
