    Zinc contributes with the structure and function of more than 2500 enzyme systems involved in metabolism (Andreini et al., 2009; Cousins and King, 2004). Zinc activates the enzyme superoxide dismutase, which plays a crucial role in stabilizing cell membranes against reactive oxygen species (ROS) (Bonaventura et al., 2015; Haase and Rink, 2014).…[Read more]

    In this context, the current official position of the International Society for Clinical Densitometry (ISCD) regarding QUS is that the only validated skeletal site for the clinical use of QUS in osteoporosis management is the heel; validated heel QUS devices predict fragility fractures in patients > age 65 y and, in conjunction with clinical ri…[Read more]

    Fig. 8 shows the size distribution obtained by SEM (in (a) and (c)) and by DSS (in (b) and (d)) techniques. The first two are the results of silica particles, while the last two are those of PDVB. It is clearly seen from the figure that the results obtained by the DSS technique are consistent with those obtained by SEM, and the difference between…[Read more]

    The innate immune response acts against microbes to preserve urinary tract sterility. Presently, LL-37 levels increase in dose- and time-dependent manners after BCG exposure to SEN0014196 cancer cells. Chromek et al reported that cathelicidin plays an important role in the integrity of urinary tract and showed that mice deficient in cathelicidin…[Read more]

    Despite the promising performance of carotid elastography indicated by the results, this study has several limitations. The ultrasound data were acquired mainly from longitudinal imaging views of the arteries, where the axial strain is closely aligned with the radial strain of the plaques (de Korte et al. 2011). However, longitudinal imaging…[Read more]

    The nidovirus-specific domain at the N-terminus of the RdRp-containing subunit: NiRANIt has long been recognized that the nidovirus replicase subunit that harbours the RdRp domain has an unusually large N-terminal extension that does not seem to be part of the RdRp domain itself. No viral or cellular homologues have been identified thus far, and…[Read more]

    Male hypogonadism occurs when the testes fail to produce sufficient levels of serum testosterone, due to various causes, and is termed primary or secondary depending on the source of hormonal imbalance. Men affected by hypogonadism may experience psychological, sexual, and order diazoxide symptoms. Although commonly used in practice, the…[Read more]

    Recently, there has been considerable interest in the role of radical prostatectomy (RP) in men with high-risk prostate cancer. The objective of our study is to report the outcome of upfront RP in our single medical center patients with high-risk prostate cancer (Stage ≥ cT3, a pre-operative serum prostate specific antigen [PSA] >20 ng/ml or a bi…[Read more]

    These results are biologically plausible because in vitro studies showed that the HIF1A+1772C/T SNP, which results in a proline to serine substitution at codon 582 within oxygen-dependent regulation of HIF-1α protein, causes significant increase in the transcriptional activity of HIF-1, compared to wild type, in normoxic and hypoxic conditions.…[Read more]

    Our findings suggest that the ultrasound prediction equation developed by Sanada et al. (2006) is useful for estimating total and regional (upper arm, thigh, lower leg and trunk) muscle mass. Total and regional muscle mass are generally used for normalization of various physiologic variables such as metabolic cost, oxygen uptake, muscle force…[Read more]

    This Section presents the NEWT imaging method developed for evaluating the corrosion damage on an aluminium panel subjected to harmonic excitation. A number of nonlinear parameters have been widely used to detect the presence of cracks and delaminations in both metallic and composite structures, such as the standard second and third order…[Read more]

    There are different selection pressures influencing viral genomic changes in persistent infections relative to viruses obtained from clinical samples. Reports have estimated the nucleotide substitution rate per site per year (s/s/y) to be approximately 0.9×10 to 7.4×10 in the VP1-coding region of FMD viruses from carriers (Gebauer et al., 1988; B…[Read more]

    Among the several imaging modalities used in attempts to characterize atherosclerotic plaques, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been found to be the most reliable. MRI can accurately characterize almost all features of vulnerable plaques, including plaque burden (size), composition, surface condition, inflammation and neovascularization, and…[Read more]

    In loading case 3 a probing load of longitudinal polarization is applied to the top-left corner and transmission of longitudinal oscillation is defined. Loading case 3 still have asymmetric nature; nonetheless its horizontal polarization boosts symmetric Lamb modes. In the spectrum of loading case 3, as compared to the loading case 2, the…[Read more]

    Beyond such investigations, which are similar in spirit to the work discussed in this review, a major challenge for future research is to integrate this type of work with results from other subfields. The evidence reviewed above, by demonstrating the ubiquitous appearance of the same computational principles across stimuli that engage different…[Read more]

    PoD occurred in 78% of patients with a median length of 5.75 months (IQR: 2.4–12,1). On UVA, IVC-TV>15cm3 was not significantly related to PoD (HR = 1.35, P = 0.24). Cox regression analysis demonstrated that metastatic disease (HR = 6.67, P<0.01) and non–clear cell histology (HR = 2.98, P = 0.02) were independent predictors of PoD (Table 4).In tot…[Read more]

  • Scaling down lens dimensions while maintaining atomic source size [15] and low emission voltages right at the field emission tip level leads to reduced lens aberrations. This concept is illustrated in Fig.1. For reaching a scaling factor of 1000 or more, lenses need to be machined with sub-micron precision.If the geometrical dimensions of a…[Read more]

  • TF plays an important role in antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, hepatoprotective and anti-tumour properties, and they also help lower blood lipids [5]. Additionally, the human body cannot synthesize TF itself. Originally, conventional solvent extraction methods have been applied to extract TF from plant materials, such as soxhlet extraction [6],…[Read more]

  • The present study focuses on another, still mysterious side of motion integration dynamics that is thought to result from the same network dynamics. Classical 2D motion patterns such as plaids, barber-pole or line drawing objects are multi-stable: perceived motion direction changes over time (Adelson & Movshon, 1982; Castet, Charton, & Dufour,…[Read more]

  • As a first attempt to define a unique index explaining tree risk, we used quartiles to pinpoint thresholds between low-risk and high-risk. However, other types of thresholds can be selected on the basis of management purposes (for example, a specific number of trees affected by the highest risk) and costs and benefits analysis. Removal of all…[Read more]
