OBJECTIVES: The pandemic spread of multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria poses a threat to healthcare worldwide, with highest prevalence in indigent regions of the (sub)tropics. As hospitalization constitutes a major risk factor for colonization, infection control management in low-prevalence countries urgently needs background data on patients hospitalized abroad. METHODS: We collected data on 1122 patients who, after hospitalization abroad, were treated at the Helsinki University Hospital between 2010 and 2013...

Abnormal vaginal bleeding can complicate direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) treatment. We aimed to investigate the characteristics of abnormal vaginal bleeding in patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE) receiving apixaban or enoxaparin/warfarin. Data were derived from the AMPLIFY trial. We compared the incidence of abnormal vaginal bleeding between patients in both treatment arms and collected information on clinical presentation, diagnostic procedures, management and outcomes. In the AMPLIFY trial, 1122 women were treated with apixaban and 1106 received enoxaparin/warfarin...

BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) are at risk of significant perioperative blood loss. To date, few studies have examined the effectiveness of tranexamic acid (TXA) to reduce blood loss in the setting of RTSA. METHODS: In a prospective, double-blinded, single-surgeon trial, we analyzed 102 patients undergoing primary RTSA who were randomized to receive intravenous TXA (n = 53) or placebo (n = 49). Calculated total blood loss, drain output, and hemoglobin (Hb) drop were measured...

CONTEXT: A number of local dialects and languages exist in India, which leads to a single disease being addressed by a number of names which may overlap with other disease names also. This creates misunderstanding and is a hindrance to effective patient-doctor communication. AIMS: The paper aims to find out how effectively the name of the respiratory disease is communicated to the patient. The terminology used by patients to describe their disease was also noted at limited level...

INTRODUCTION AND AIMS: Even though individuals with substance-use disorders have a high prevalence of tobacco smoking, surprisingly little is known about smoking-related mortality in these populations. The current retrospective cohort study aims to address this gap. DESIGN AND METHODS: The study sample included cohorts of individuals hospitalised in California between 1990 and 2005 with alcohol- (n = 509 422), cocaine- (n = 35 276), opioid- (n = 53 172), marijuana- (n = 15 995) or methamphetamine-use (n = 36 717) disorders...

Upon supersonic expansion, formic acid and cyclobutanone (CBU) form a molecular cluster in which the two constituent molecules, linked by OHO and CHO hydrogen bonds, undergo a rapid interconversion between two equivalent forms. The tunneling motion takes place through the rupture and reformation of the C-HO hydrogen bond between the carbonyl oxygen of HCOOH and one of the two hydrogen atoms of the methylenic group adjacent to the cyclobutanone keto group. From the microwave spectra, tunneling energy splittings (ΔE01) have been determined for the parent (1122...

OBJECTIVE: Since the introduction of diffusion tensor imaging, white matter abnormalities in epilepsy have been studied extensively. However, the affected areas reported, the extent of abnormalities and the association with relevant clinical parameters are highly variable. We aimed to obtain a more consistent estimate of white matter abnormalities and their association with clinical parameters in different epilepsy types. METHODS: We systematically searched for differences in white matter fractional anisotropy and mean diffusivity, at regional and voxel level, between people with epilepsy and healthy controls...

Rusts, a fungal disease as old as its host plant wheat, has caused havoc for over 8000 years. As the rust pathogens can evolve into new virulent races which quickly defeat the resistance that primarily rely on race specificity, adult plant resistance (APR) has often been found to be race non-specific and hence is considered to be a more reliable and durable strategy to combat this malady. Over decades sets of donor lines have been identified at International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) representing a wide range of APR sources in wheat...

Experimental studies conducted on animal and human endothelium suggested that higher systolic blood pressure (SBP) variability reduces bioavailability of nitric oxide and increases vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation. These vascular wall changes could stiffen the arterial wall. Using data from the Multiethnic Study of Atherosclerosis, we investigated the association between long-term SBP variability and 10-year percent change in arterial stiffness among 1122 individuals (mean age 57 years, 46% males at baseline) who were not taking antihypertensive medications...

Hypomagnesemia is commonly seen but frequently overlooked in critically ill patients in intensive care unit (ICU). However, the strength and consistency of the effect of hypomagnesemia on outcomes in critically ill patients remain controversial. In this report, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the association of serum magnesium level with prognosis of critically ill patients upon admission to the ICU. A comprehensive search for clinical trials was performed, and 10 studies comprising 1,122 cases and 630 controls were finally selected for analysis...

Urchin-like cobalt oxide (Co3O4) hollow spheres can be successfully prepared by thermal decomposition of cobalt carbonate hydroxide hydrate (Co(CO3)0.5(OH)·0.11H2O) obtained by template-assisted hydrothermal synthesis. The morphology, crystal structure evolution and thermal decomposition behaviors of the as-prepared products have been carefully investigated. A plausible formation mechanism of the urchin-like Co3O4 hollow spheres in the presence of hexadecyl trimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB) as the surfactant template is proposed...

The low electrocatalytic activity for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and the high cost of cathode catalyst in microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are the important factors that limit the practical applications. The metal-free nitrogen (N)-doped partly graphitized carbon (NPGC) as cathode catalyst is prepared at different temperatures (700-1050 °C) by using waste cornstalks as the carbon source and melamine as the N source. Scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, specific surface areas, and transmission electron microscopy have been used, in parallel with electrochemical activity tests including rotating disk electrode (RDE) and power output, to clarify how the active constituents and structure of NPGC influence the MFCs performance...

A novel method for simultaneous measurement of strain and high temperature using a Type II fiber Bragg grating (FBG) and a miniature fiber Fabry-Perot interferometer (MFFPI) is proposed. The MFFPI is produced by fusion splicing a short section of quartz capillary tube with two single-mode fibers, and then it is exposed by a focused femtosecond laser and a phase mask to inscribe a Type II FBG nearby. The reflection spectrum of this sensor is the superposition of the reflection spectrum of the FBG and the interference fringe of the MFFPI...
