BACKGROUND: Central venous access devices (CVADs) are essential for total parenteral nutrition administration in patients with short bowel syndrome (SBS). However, they are fraught with complications including infection and venous thromboembolism (VTE), which increases associated morbidity and mortality in this population. There is evidence linking the development of CVAD-associated thrombosis and line-related infection. Thus, it has been postulated that prevention of catheter-related clot formation could minimize the risk of infection originating from the catheter...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Patients on parenteral nutrition for short bowel syndrome (SBS) have a high risk of thrombotic complications and are often treated with parenteral anticoagulation. Direct oral anticoagulants are absorbed proximally in the digestive tract and may represent alternative regimens in selected SBS patients. In our pilot study, we provided pharmacokinetics parameters of dabigatran etexilate and rivaroxaban in this setting and compared peak (Cmax), trough (Ctrough) concentrations, and areas-under-the-concentration-time-curve (AUC0-t) to reference values retrieved from phase I-III studies...

Eliminating errors in next-generation DNA sequencing has proved challenging. Here we present error-correction code (ECC) sequencing, a method to greatly improve sequencing accuracy by combining fluorogenic sequencing-by-synthesis (SBS) with an information theory-based error-correction algorithm. ECC embeds redundancy in sequencing reads by creating three orthogonal degenerate sequences, generated by alternate dual-base reactions. This is similar to encoding and decoding strategies that have proved effective in detecting and correcting errors in information communication and storage...

The Cry (crystal) proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis are known to have toxicity against a variety of insects and have been exploited to control insect pests through transgenic plants and biopesticides. B. thuringiensis SBS BT-1 carrying the cry2 genes was isolated from soil samples in Pakistan. The 2-kb full length cry2Ac gene was cloned, sequenced, and submitted to the EMBL DNA database (Accession No. AM292031). For expression analysis, Escherichia coli DH5α was transformed with the fragment sub-cloned in pET22b expression vector using NdeI and HindIII restriction sites, and later confirmed by restriction endonuclease analysis...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the fluorination of a zirconia surface as an alternative treatment for bonding to resin cement; the null hypothesis was that fluorination would not improve adhesion values. Four different surface treatments were performed on the surface of yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystal discs (N = 80): Ctrl (control), no treatment; SB, sandblasting with 50-μm alumina particles; SBS, sandblasting with 30-μm silica-modified alumina particles and application of silane; and SF, fluorination with sulfur hexafluoride-containing plasma...

We designed a nanocomposite consisting of CdSe nanoplatelets dispersed in the form of short stacks in the polybutadiene domains of a polystyrene-polybutadiene-polystyrene (SBS) thermoplastic elastomer matrix. Under strain, the material displays reversible, macroscopic anisotropic properties, e.g. the fluorescence signal. We present here a structural study of the composite under stretching, by in situ high-resolution X-ray scattering using synchrotron radiation. Modelling the scattering signal allows us to monitor the evolution of both the matrix and the platelets under strain...

A high brightness, high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) linear-polarization optically generated radio-frequency signal is demonstrated based on an all-fibered master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) configuration. The seed signal is generated by beating two different frequency beams which are split from the same single frequency laser source. One beam has initial frequency and the other beam is shifted by 200 MHz using an acoustic-optical modulator. The combined beam contains two frequency components with a frequency difference of 200 MHz and this dual-frequency laser signal is then amplified by a three-stage all-fibered amplifier...

Synchronized bursts (SBs) with complex structures are common in neuronal cultures. Although the phenomenon of SBs has been discovered for a long time, its origin is still unclear. Here, we investigate the properties of these SBs in cultures grown on a multi-electrode array. We find that structures of these SBs are related to the different developmental stages of the cultures and these structures can be modified by changing the magnesium concentration in the culture medium; indicating that synaptic mechanism is involved in the generation of SBs...
