#1
Keith Rincker, Glen L Hartman, Brian W Diers
Brown stem rot (BSR) of soybean [ (L.) Merr.] caused by (Allington & Chamb.) T.C. Harr. & McNew can be controlled effectively with genetic host resistance. Three BSR resistance genes , , and , have been identified and mapped to a large region on chromosome 16. Marker-assisted selection (MAS) will be more efficient and gene cloning will be facilitated with a narrowed genomic interval containing an gene. The objective of this study was to fine map the positions of genes from five sources. Mapping populations were developed by crossing the resistant sources 'Bell', PI 84946-2, PI 437833, PI 437970, L84-5873, and PI 86150 with either the susceptible cultivar Colfax or Century 84...

We have shown that single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in microRNA (miRNA) genes, miRNA target genes, and miRNA biogenesis genes minimally contribute to colon cancer risk. It is possible that these SNPs alter survival. We analyzed 565 SNPs in or adjacent to microRNAs, target genes, or biogenesis genes, using 1115 cases and 1173 controls; 837 cases had survival information. We tested SNPs for associations with colorectal cancer (CRC) survival using a Cox proportional hazard model adjusting for age, study center, gender, AJCC disease stage, and MSI tumor status...

OBJECTIVES: Urinary calculi rarely occur in renal transplant. However, because of peculiarities shown with renal allografts, a prudent approach is necessary to prevent further complications or even graft failure. There are no well-established guidelines for uro?ithiasis in renal grafts regarding adequate therapy selection. In the present article, different therapeutic interventions are discussed, including in 1 case a pyelovesicostomy as an uncommon intervention. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed data of 1115 patients who underwent renal transplant between January 2002 and December 2014 for urolithiasis in different databases...

Well-designed electronic health records (EHRs) must integrate a variety of accurate information to support efforts to improve quality of care, particularly equity-in-care initiatives. This case study provides insight into the challenges those initiatives may face in collecting accurate race, ethnicity, and language (REAL) information in the EHR. We present the experience of an academic medical center strengthening its EHR for better collection of REAL data with funding from the EHR Incentive Programs for meaningful use of health information technology and the Texas Medicaid 1115 Waiver program...

Literature suggests that genetic variants associated with increased susceptibility to gastric cancer (GCa) are mostly located in genes involved in carcinogenesis and possibly tumor progression. Therefore, we hypothesize that high genetic susceptibility is also associated with prognosis of the patients. To test this hypothesis, we selected a total of 42 common genetic variants that were reportedly associated with GCa risk with a high level of evidence obtained from either genome-wide association studies (GWASs) or meta-analyses and performed survival analysis of patients used in a case-control analysis...

Depression after liver transplantation has been associated with decreased survival, but the effects of pre-transplant depression on early and late post-transplant outcomes remain incompletely evaluated. We assessed all patients who had undergone single-organ liver transplantation at a single center over the prior 10 years. A diagnosis of pre-transplant depression, covariates, and the outcomes of interest were extracted from the electronic medical record. Potential covariates included demographics, etiology and severity of liver disease, comorbidities, donor age, graft type, immunosuppression, and ischemic times...

Diarrhoeal disease is the second leading cause of death in children under age 5 worldwide, with rotavirus being the main etiology. In the Lao People's Democratic Republic, acute watery diarrhoea (AWD) was introduced as one of the national notifiable diseases in 2004. We retrospectively reviewed the aggregate (n = 117 277) and case-based (n = 67 755) AWD surveillance data from 2009 to 2013 reported weekly from 1115 health facilities nationwide. Rotavirus rapid test data from all eight sentinel sites in Vientiane Capital in 2013 were also collected for analysis...

: Urinary incontinence (UI) and erectile dysfunction (ED) after radical prostatectomy (RP) can impose a strong burden. While most studies focus on certain time points after RP when analyzing functional outcome, there is paucity of evidence on late functional recovery in patients with UI or ED at 12 mo after RP. Using longitudinal patient data from a large European single-center, we show that the chance of regaining continence among patients (n=974) with UI (≥1 pad/24h) at 12 mo after RP was 38...

BACKGROUND: Accumulating evidence suggests that increased red cell distribution width (RDW) and mean corpuscular volume (MCV) were both poor prognostic factors for patients with cardiovascular diseases. Recently, the multiplicative interaction between RDW and MCV has been observed for predicting mortality in elderly patients without anemia; however, the relationship between the product of RDW-MCV and hypertension-induced target organ damage (TOD) has not been evaluated. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional study in 1115 hypertensive patients...

A series of phenylene-based conjugated microporous polymers (CMPs) of the A6 + Mx (x = 2, 3, 4, 6) type were synthesized. By tuning the monomer length and geometry, the BET surface area of CMPs can be tuned from 571 to 1115 m(2) g(-1). Amongst the synthesized CMPs, A6CMP-1 exhibits the highest CO2 adsorption capacity of 1218 mg g(-1) at 318 K and 60 bar pressure. In addition, A6CMP-4 shows a high selectivity ratio of 47 for CO2/N2.

Based on an adjusted Job Demands-Resources (JD-R) model that considers the mediation of personal resources, this study examined the relationships between two characteristics of teachers' work environment (i.e., emotional job demands and trust in colleagues) and two indicators of teachers' well-being (i.e., teaching satisfaction and emotional exhaustion). In particular, the study focused on how emotion regulation strategies (i.e., reappraisal and suppression) mediate these relationships. Data collected from a questionnaire survey of 1115 primary school teachers in Hong Kong was analyzed to test the hypothesized relationships...

In-hospital medical complications are common and strongly associated with the risk of death and dependency in stroke patients. Whether similar associations extend to stroke recurrence is unclear. We prospectively and systematically investigated whether in-hospital medical complications are associated with recurrent stroke of patients in the China National Stroke Registry (CNSR). We examined patients with initial ischemic stroke enrolled in CNSR between 2007 and 2008. Recurrent stroke at 3, 6, and 12 months post-stroke was used as stroke outcome...

PURPOSE: Whether mandibular involvement by oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) could be identified as a factor for cancer staging and prognosis prediction remains a subject of debate. In addition, the influence of different types of mandibular invasion (cortical or medullary invasion) on patients' prognosis remains unclear. The aim of this systematic review was to establish whether mandibular invasion or its subset should be considered an independent prognostic factor for patients with OSCC...
