OBJECTIVE: This study investigated between-person and within-person associations among mean levels and variability in affect, diabetes self-care behaviors, and continuously monitored glucose in Latinos with type 2 diabetes. METHODS: Fifty participants (mean age=57.8 [SD=11.7] years, 74% women, mean A1c=8.3% [SD=1.5%]) wore a 'blinded' continuous glucose monitor for 7 days, and they responded to twice-daily automated phone surveys regarding positive affect (PA), negative affect (NA) and self-care behaviors...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJETIVE: The early detection of upper limb complications is important in women operated on for breast cancer. The "FACT-B+4-UL" questionnaire, a specific variant of the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Breast (FACT-B) is available among others to measure the upper limb function. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The Spanish version of the upper limb subscale of the FACT-B+4 was validated in a prospective cohort of 201 women operated on for breast cancer (factor analysis, internal consistency, test-retest reliability, construct validity and sensitivity to change were determined)...

The VARC (Valve Academic Research Consortium) for transcatheter aortic valve replacement set the standard for selecting appropriate clinical endpoints reflecting safety and effectiveness of transcatheter devices, and defining single and composite clinical endpoints for clinical trials. No such standardization exists for circumferentially sutured surgical valve paravalvular leak (PVL) closure. This document seeks to provide core principles, appropriate clinical endpoints, and endpoint definitions to be used in clinical trials of PVL closure devices...

Humans often experience dizziness and vertigo around strong static magnetic fields such as those present in an MRI scanner. Recent evidence supports the idea that this effect is the result of inner ear vestibular stimulation and that the mechanism is a magnetohydrodynamic force (Lorentz force) that is generated by the interactions between normal ionic currents in the inner ear endolymph and the strong static magnetic field of MRI machines. While in the MRI, the Lorentz force displaces the cupula of the lateral and anterior semicircular canals, as if the head was rotating with a constant acceleration...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study is to characterize the risk of cancer in a large cohort of patients with primary Sjögren syndrome (SjS). METHODS: We had analyzed the development of cancer in 1300 consecutive patients fulfilling the 2002 SjS classification criteria. The baseline clinical and immunological characteristics and systemic activity (ESSDAI scores) were assessed at diagnosis as predictors of cancer using Cox proportional hazards regression analysis adjusted for age at diagnosis and gender...

Drug nanosuspensions (NSs) show a significant potential to improve loading and release properties of the poorly water soluble drug triamcinolone acetonide (TA) from poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (pHEMA) soft contact lenses. In this work, TA NSs were developed by a controlled precipitation method using a fractional factorial Plackett-Burmann design. Poloxamer 407 (PL) and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) as stabilizing agents were selected. NSs were characterized in terms of their drug content, particle size and morphology...

The effects of ten natural cadinane sesquiterpenoids isolated from Heterotheca inuloides on the pathways of the NF-κB, Nrf2 and STAT3 transcription factors were studied for the first time. The main constituent in this species, 7-hydroxy-3,4-dihydrocadalene (1), showed anti-NF-κB activity and activated the antioxidant Nrf2 pathway, which may explain the properties reported for the traditional use of the plant. In addition to the main metabolite, a structurally similar compound, 7-hydroxy-cadalene (2), also displayed anti-NF-κB activity...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the frequency of 3 hand gestures by patients with chest pain and determine the diagnostic validity of the gestures in acute coronary syndrome. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective study was conducted on 383 adult patients treated for chest pain in an emergency department. We observed certain hand gestures, previously referred to in the medical literature as characteristic of coronary pain (gesture 1: a clenched fist held over the sternal area or Levine's sign; gesture 2: open hand located over the same area; gesture 3: both hands placed in the centre of the chest), as well as other gestures...

PURPOSE: Traditional classification systems for tibial plateau fractures (TPF) are based on simple radiographs, and intra- and inter-observer variability is low. The aim was to assess intra- and inter-observer variability using traditional systems and some recently described classification systems of TPF in the interpretation of standard radiographs and bidimensional (2D) and tridimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT). METHODS: We studied all patients at two centres who underwent TPF surgery over a three-year period...

Azotobacter vinelandii, a strict aerobic, nitrogen fixing bacterium in the Pseudomonadaceae family, exhibits a preferential use of acetate over glucose as a carbon source. In this study, we show that GluP (Avin04150), annotated as an H(+)-coupled glucose-galactose symporter, is the glucose transporter in A. vinelandii. This protein, which is widely distributed in bacteria and archaea, is uncommon in Pseudomonas species. We found that expression of gluP was under catabolite repression control thorugh the CbrA/CbrB and Crc/Hfq regulatory systems, which were functionally conserved between A...

A comparison between plate counting (PC) and dynamic light scattering (DLS) is reported. PC is the standard technique to determine bacterial population as a function of time; however, this method has drawbacks, such as the cumbersome preparation and handling of samples, as well as the long time required to obtain results. Alternative methods based on optical density are faster, but do not distinguish viable from non-viable cells. These inconveniences are overcome by using DLS. Two different bacteria strains were considered: Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus...

Small non-coding RNAs (sRNAs) are expected to have pivotal roles in the adaptive responses underlying symbiosis of nitrogen-fixing rhizobia with legumes. Here, we provide primary insights into the function and activity mechanism of the Sinorhizobium meliloti trans-sRNA NfeR1 (Nodule Formation Efficiency RNA). Northern blot probing and transcription tracking with fluorescent promoter-reporter fusions unveiled high nfeR1 expression in response to salt stress and throughout the symbiotic interaction. The strength and differential regulation of nfeR1 transcription are conferred by a motif, which is conserved in nfeR1 promoter regions in α-proteobacteria...

Fleas are known vectors of zoonotic agents. Thirty-five fleas, including 28 Ctenocephalides felis (Bouché), four Pulex irritans (L.), and three Echidnophaga gallinacea (Westwood) from 19 rural dogs from southwestern Uganda were analyzed for the presence of Rickettsia spp. (ompB, gltA, and 17 kDa fragment genes) and Bartonella spp. (rpoB and ITS genes) by PCR. Rickettsial DNA was detected in 27 out of 28 of Ct. felis and in two out of four P. irritans. None of the E. gallinacea specimens harbored Rickettsia DNA...

Brain-machine interfaces (BMIs) enable humans to interact with devices by modulating their brain signals. Despite impressive technological advancements, several obstacles remain. The most commonly used BMI control signals are derived from the brain areas involved in primary sensory- or motor-related processing. However, these signals only reflect a limited range of human intentions. Therefore, additional sources of brain activity for controlling BMIs need to be explored. In particular, higher-order cognitive brain signals, specifically those encoding goal-directed intentions, are natural candidates for enlarging the repertoire of BMI control signals and making them more efficient and intuitive...
