The prevalence of fungal spores in the hospital air is essential to understand the hospital-acquired fungal infections. Air conditioners (ACs) used in hospitals may either reduce spores in air or be colonised by fungi and aid in its dissemination. The present study was conducted to assess the fungal spore burden in AC and non-AC areas. We found a high fungal spore count in air irrespective of whether the area was AC or non-AC. The most predominant species isolated were Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus fumigatus...

The use of earth-abundant materials is at the frontier of nanoplasmonics research, where their availability and low cost can enable practical mainstream applications and commercial viability. Aluminum is of specific interest in this regard, due to its ability to support plasmon resonances throughout the ultraviolet (UV), visible, and infrared regions of the spectrum. However, the lack of accurate dielectric data has critically limited the agreement between theoretical predictions and experimental measurements of the optical properties of Al nanostructures compared, for example, to the agreement enjoyed by the noble/coinage metals...

DNA strands can be analyzed at the single-molecule level by isolating them inside nanoscale holes. The strategy is used for the label-free and portable sequencing with nanopores. Nanochannels can also be applied to map genomes with high resolution, as shown by Jeffet et al. in this issue of ACS Nano. Here, we compare the two strategies in terms of biophysical similarities and differences and describe that both are complementary and can improve the DNA analysis for genomic research and diagnostics.

Xiang Zhao, Xianhui Bu, Edward T Nguyen, Quan-Guo Zhai, Chengyu Mao, Pingyun Feng
Pore space partition, especially the one using C3-symmetric 2,4,6-tri(4-pyridyl)-1,3,5-triazine as pore-partition agent in MIL-88 type (the acs net), has been shown to dramatically enhance CO2 uptake to near-record values. The continued advance in property engineering via pore space partition would depend on intelligent design of both framework components and pore-partition agent. Here, we report a new advance in the design of pore-partition agent by demonstrating a symmetry-guided pathway to develop a large variety of di- and trinuclear 1,2,4-triazolate-based clusters for use as pore-partition agent...

: Angina pectoris in pregnancy is unusual and Prinzmetal's angina is much rarer. It accounts for 2% of all cases of angina. It is caused by vasospasm, but the mechanism of spasm is unknown but has been linked with hyperthyroidism in some studies. Patients with thyrotoxicosis-induced acute myocardial infarction are unusual and almost all reported cases have been associated with Graves' disease. Human chorionic gonadotropin hormone-induced hyperthyroidism occurs in about 1.4% of pregnant women, mostly when hCG levels are above 70-80 000 IU/L...

BACKGROUND: Risk stratification in non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) is currently mainly based on clinical characteristics. With routine invasive management, angiography findings and biomarkers are available and may improve prognostication. We aimed to assess if adding biomarkers [high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (cTnT-hs), N-terminal probrain-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF-15)] and extent of coronary artery disease (CAD) might improve prognostication in revascularized patients with NSTE-ACS...

REVIEW
Geevar Zachariah, Mohanan Padinharepurayil, Krishnan Mangalath Narayanan
India's contribution to cardiovascular research has been dismal with a share of only 1% of total number of papers published in the world during the period 1999-2008. Based on two recent studies published from Kerala, the Kerala ACS Registry and the CSI Kerala CRP Study and four other studies being undertaken in Kerala, we think that a Kerala model for cardiovascular research can be conceptualized. This model which consists of funding by professional organization of cardiologists with wide participation of cardiologists, physicians, health workers, nurses, and in some situations general public, logistics looked after by a central coordinator and study design by panel of experts or institutions of repute in the region and carried out at low cost can be considered for implementation in rest of India...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate usefulness of non-physician health workers (NPHW) to improve adherence to medications and lifestyles following acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS: We randomized 100 patients at hospital discharge following ACS to NPHW intervention (n=50) or standard care (n=50) in an open label study. NPHW was trained for interventions to improve adherence to medicines - antiplatelets, β-blockers, renin-angiotensin system (RAS) blockers and statins and healthy lifestyles...

BACKGROUND: Randomized clinical trials have established the benefits of statin therapy in acute coronary syndromes (ACS) via their pleiotropic effects. AIM OF THE STUDY: This was a 12-week, open-label, multicenter, postmarketing observational study evaluating the efficacy and safety of rosuvastatin 40 mg/day in very high-risk or high-risk Indian patients according to NCEP ATP III guidelines. METHODOLOGY: One hundred and sixty two patients (age: 30 to 69 years) with evidence of coronary artery disease, hospitalized with chest pain with/without electrocardiogram changes and with non-ST segment elevation ACS and ST segment elevation ACS who received optimal reperfusion therapy were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Platelet aggregation monitoring in diabetic patients treated with coronary interventions (PCI) for an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a promising way of optimizing treatment and outcomes in this high risk group. The aim of the study was to verify whether clopidogrel response measured by Multiplate analyzer (ADPtest) in diabetic ACS patients treated with PCI predicts the risk of stent thrombosis or cardiovascular mortality and bleeding. METHODS: Into this prospective, observational study 206 elective PCI patients were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: People of South Asian (SAs) and African Caribbean (AC) origin have increased cardiovascular morbidity, but underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. Aging is the key predictor of deterioration in diastolic function, which can be assessed by echocardiography using E/e' ratio as a surrogate of left ventricular (LV) filling pressure. The study aimed to assess a possibility of premature cardiac aging in SA and AC subjects. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied 4540 subjects: 2880 SA and 1660 AC subjects...
