Animal-induced conditions in humans predominantly present as infectious zoonoses. However, trauma-associated injuries from the teeth or claws can also occur. Several zoonotic infections can be transmitted by cats, a common household pet, to their owners. The clinical features of a woman who developed multiple sites of trauma-induced cutaneous punctures from her cat's paws while it was kneading on her clothes-covered abdomen are described. The repetitive insertion and withdrawal of the sharp tips of the cat's claws created distinctive groups of erythematous punctures on the patient's skin...

Escin, as an internally applied anti-inflammatory agent, has been widely used in the treatment of inflammation and edema resulting from trauma or operation in the clinic. However, the effect of its external use on cutaneous inflammation and edema remains unexplored. In the present study, the anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous effects of external use of escin were studied in carrageenan-induced paw edema and histamine-induced capillary permeability in rats, paraxylene-induced ear swelling in mice, and cotton pellet-induced granuloma in rats...

Our recent studies demonstrated that regional bone loss in the unloaded hind limbs of tail-suspended mice triggered pain-like behaviors due to the acidic environment in the bone induced by osteoclast activation. The aims of the present study were to examine whether TRPV1, ASIC and P2X (known as nociceptors) are expressed in bone, and whether the antagonists to those receptors affect the expression of osteoblast and osteoclast regulators, and prevent the triggering of not only pain-like behaviors but also high bone turnover conditions in tail-suspension model mice...

BACKGROUND: Pain management is important in pre-hospital care of patients with extremity trauma (ET). The goal of this study was to establish a rat model of ET for pre-hospital pain research, and validate it using pain behaviors and analgesics. METHODS: Rats were anesthetized using isoflurane and ET was induced in one hindlimb via clamping retrofemoral tissues for 30 sec, followed by closed fibula fracture. Rats regained consciousness after ET. Pain responses in the injured hindlimb to thermal hyperalgesia (paw withdrawal latency, PWL), mechanical allodynia (paw withdrawal pressure, PWP), and weight bearing (WB) were determined before and 90 minutes after ET...

Electrophysiology enables the objective assessment of peripheral nerve function in vivo. Traditional nerve conduction measures such as amplitude and latency detect chronic axon loss and demyelination, respectively. Axonal excitability techniques "by threshold tracking" expand upon these measures by providing information regarding the activity of ion channels, pumps and exchangers that relate to acute function and may precede degenerative events. As such, the use of axonal excitability in animal models of neurological disorders may provide a useful in vivo measure to assess novel therapeutic interventions...

We study topological properties of Bi$_{1-x}$Sb$_{x}$ bilayers in the (111) plane using entanglement measures. Electronic structures are investigated within multi-orbital tight-binding model and structural stability is confirmed through first-principles calculations. Topologically non-trivial nature of bismuth bilayer is proved by the presence of spectral flow in the entanglement spectrum. We consider topological phase transitions driven by a composition change x, an applied external electric field in Bi bilayer and strain in Sb bilayer...

BACKGROUND: At present, organ transplantation is the most efficient treatment of end-stage failure of various organs, including the heart, lungs, pancreas, intestines, kidney, and liver. Despite the efforts to use organs from living donors or from donors after circulatory death, most of the organs are recovered from brain dead (BD) donors. METHODS: The Medline and Web of Science databases were searched without time limit on November 2015 using the terms "brain dead donor" and "deceased donor" in conjunction with "transplantation", "graft", "organ", "hemodynamic", "hormonal", or "management"...

REVIEW
Barbara Pawłowska, Beata M Sobieszczańska
Diarrheagenic Escherichia coli strains are included in 9 pathotypes (pathovars) that present different virulence factors responsible for the patomechanism of infections they cause. As all other intestinal pathogens, E. coli exerts a significant effect on intestinal epithelium. To initiate the infection, these microorganisms have evolved countless strategies to subvert the epithelial barrier and efficiently colonize the intestinal epithelium. The barrier function of the intestinal epithelium is achieved by the presence of a tight junction protein network surrounding individual cells around their circumference that links neighboring cells and seals the intracellular space...
