INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is the first-line treatment in the majority of cases of upper urinary tract stones. Since its introduction, attempts have been made to establish the ideal accompanying analgesic method to enable the application of shock waves of adequate duration and intensity for efficacious stone fragmentation. An open, randomized, prospective, longitudinal, comparative, and experimental clinical study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of subcostal nerve block with lidocaine, comparing it in combination with tramadol or diclofenac for pain control during ESWL...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the most common inherited cardiovascular disease. It is characterized by increased ventricular wall thickness and is highly complex due to its heterogeneous clinical presentation, several phenotypes, large number of associated causal mutations and broad spectrum of complications. It is caused by mutations in sarcomeric proteins, which are identified in up to 60% of cases of the disease. Clinical manifestations of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy include shortness of breath, chest pain, palpitations and syncope, which are related to the onset of diastolic dysfunction, left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, ischemia, atrial fibrillation and abnormal vascular responses...

Prevention of the metabolic consequences of a chronic energy-dense/high-fat diet (HFD) represents a public health priority. Metformin is a strong candidate to be incorporated in alternative therapeutic approaches. We used a targeted metabolomic approach to assess changes related to the multi-faceted metabolic disturbances provoked by HFD. We evaluated the protective effects of metformin and explored how pro-inflammatory and metabolic changes respond when mice rendered obese, glucose-intolerant and hyperlipidemic were switched to diet reversal with or without metformin...

This paper addresses a fundamental question, are eyes closed and eyes open resting states equivalent baseline conditions, or do they have consistently different electrophysiological signatures? We compare the functional connectivity patterns in an eyes closed resting state with an eyes open resting state to investigate the alpha desynchronization hypothesis. The change in functional connectivity from eyes closed to eyes open, is here, for the first time, studied with intracranial recordings. We perform network connectivity analysis in iEEG and we find that phase-based connectivity is sensitive to the transition from eyes closed to eyes open only in interhemispheral and frontal electrodes...

Usual methods for the continuous assay of lipolytic enzyme activities are mainly based on the titration of free fatty acids, surface pressure monitoring or spectrophotometry using substrates labeled with specific probes. These approaches only give a partial information on the chemistry of the lipolysis reaction and additional end-point analyses are often required to quantify both residual substrate and lipolysis products. We used transmission infrared (IR) spectroscopy to monitor simultaneously the hydrolysis of phospholipids by guinea pig pancreatic lipase-related protein 2 (GPLRP2) and the release of lipolysis products...

Recently, there have been advances in understanding of the changes that occur in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis during the different stages of critical disease. Such advances have led to a paradigm change, so that the aforementioned adaptations are no longer considered the result of adrenal axis activation, but a consequence of decreased cortisol metabolism illness. Knowledge of this new pathophysiological bases should lead to reconsider the diagnosis and treatment of adrenal insufficiency in critically ill patients, a condition poorly understood to date...

Robotic and minimally invasive mitral valve (MV) procedures have been performed with increasing frequency over time. These alternatives offer similar efficacy to that achieved via standard median sternotomy, particularly in large volume centers, along with low perioperative morbidity and mortality rates. Moreover, patient acceptance is oftentimes increased due to less postoperative pain and shorter recovery times, as well as superior cosmetic results. However, these techniques are technically complex and associated with a significant learning curve...

Hippocrates' admonition and the medical community's aversion to risk have caused many physicians and institutions to resist participation in modern social media sites such as Facebook (Facebook, Inc, Menlo Park, California, USA), Twitter (Twitter Inc, San Francisco, California, USA), and YouTube (San Mateo, California, USA). However, because Mayo Clinic's founders were champions of analog social networking, it was among the earliest hospitals worldwide to create official accounts on these digital platforms...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this discursive paper was to characterize the intra-theoretical interests of knowledge in nursing science as an epistemological framework for fundamental care. BACKGROUND: For Jürgen Habermas, theory does not separate knowledge interests from life. All knowledge, understanding and human research is always interested. Habermas formulated the knowledge interests in empirical-analytical, historical-hermeneutic and critical social sciences; but said nothing about health sciences and nursing science...

Lithium β-ketocarboxylates 1(COOLi), prepared by reaction of lithium enolates 2(Li(+)) with carbon dioxide, readily decarboxylate in THF solution unless in the presence of lithium salts, in which case they are indefinitely stable at room temperature under inert atmosphere. The availability of stable THF solutions of lithium β-ketocarboxylates 1(COOLi) in the absence of carbon dioxide allowed for reactions with nitrogen bases and alkyl halides 3 to give α-alkyl ketones 1(R) after acidic hydrolysis. The sequence then represents the use of carbon dioxide as a removable directing group for the selective monoalkylation of lithium enolates 2(Li(+))...

Peripheral serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) regulates cell growth and differentiation in numerous cell types through engagement of seven types of cell surface receptors (HTR1-7). Deregulated 5-HT/HTR levels contribute to pathology in chronic inflammatory diseases, with macrophages being relevant targets for the physio-pathological effects of 5-HT. In fact, 5-HT skews human macrophage polarization through engagement of 5-HT2BR and 5-HT7R receptors. We now report that 5-HT primes macrophages for reduced pro-inflammatory cytokine production and IFN type I-mediated signaling, and promotes an anti-inflammatory and pro-fibrotic gene signature in human macrophages...

The Potyviridae family is a major group of plant viruses that includes ca. 200 species, most of which have narrow host ranges. The potyvirid P1 leader proteinase self-cleaves from the remainder of viral polyprotein and shows large sequence variability linked to host adaptation. P1 proteins can be classified as Type A or Type B based, among other things, on their dependency or not on a host factor to develop their protease activity. In this work, we studied Type A proteases from the Potyviridae family characterizing their host factor requirements...

In the present study, we report the development of a real-time PCR assay for the identification of Bacillus anthracis, based on the amplification of a unique chromosomal marker, the E4 sequence, with dual hybridization probes. The assay was evaluated using a panel of ten B. anthracis strains, two B. anthracis isolates from human clinical samples, 12 B. anthracis environmental swabs and 40 non- B. anthracis strains. All 12 B. anthracis strains and clinical isolates were correctly detected, and the method did not show cross-reactions with other micro-organisms...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Cholangiocarcinomas (CCA) are resistant to chemotherapy, so new therapeutic agents are needed. We performed a screen to identify small molecule compounds that are active against CCAs. Levels of microRNA 21 (MIR21 or miRNA21) are increased in CCAs. We investigated whether miRNA21 mediates resistance of CCA cells and organoids to HSP90 inhibitors. METHODS: We performed a high-throughput screen of 484 small molecule compounds to identify those that reduced viability of 6 human CCA cell lines...

Paramyotonia congenita (OMIM 168300) is a non-dystrophic myopathy caused by mutations in the SCN4A gene that sometimes can be confused with myotonia congenita. Another disease also caused by mutations in the gene SCN4A is called myotonia aggravated by potassium (OMIM 170500, 613345). It is estimated that more than 20% of patients with suspected myotonia congenita suffer paramyotonia congenita. The two related SCN4A phenotypes exhibit an autosomal dominant inheritance and are the result of mutations that cause an increase in the function of the protein coded by this gene...

Resting-state signals in blood-oxygenation-level-dependent (BOLD) imaging are used to parcellate brain regions and define "functional connections" between regions. Yet a physiological link between fluctuations in blood oxygenation with those in neuronal signaling pathways is missing. We present evidence from studies on mouse cortex that modulation of vasomotion, i.e., intrinsic ultra-slow (0.1 Hz) fluctuations in arteriole diameter, provides this link. First, ultra-slow fluctuations in neuronal signaling, which occur as an envelope over γ-band activity, entrains vasomotion...
