${session.getAttribute("locale")} 5 Comparison of computed tomography perfusion and magnetic resonance imaging perfusion-diffusion mismatch in ischemic stroke 4 seconds for lesion region of interest. The MR-Tmax >6 seconds perfusion lesion was automatically segmented and registered to CTP. Receiver-operating characteristic analysis determined the optimal CT-Tmax threshold to match MR-Tmax >6 seconds. Agreement of these CT parameters with MR perfusion-diffusion mismatch in coregistered slabs was assessed (mismatch ratio >1.2, absolute mismatch >10 mL, infarct core <70 mL). Results: In analysis of 49 patients (mean onset to CT, 213 minutes; mean CT to MR, 31 minutes), constraining relCBF <31% within the automated relTTP perfusion lesion region of interest reduced the median magnitude of volumetric error (vs diffusion-weighted imaging) from 47.5 mL to 15.8 mL (P<0.001). The optimal CT-Tmax threshold to match MR-Tmax >6 seconds was 6.2 seconds (95% confidence interval, 5.6–7.3 seconds; sensitivity, 91%; specificity, 70%; area under the curve, 0.87). Using CT-Tmax >6 seconds “penumbra” and relTTP-constrained relCBF “core,” CT-based and MRI-based mismatch status was concordant in 90% (kappa=0.80). Conclusions: Quantitative CTP mismatch classification using relCBF and Tmax is similar to perfusion-diffusion MRI. The greater accessibility of CTP may facilitate generalizability of mismatch-based selection in clinical practice and trials.]]> Wed 07 Oct 2015 16:32:06 EST ]]> Legendre-type integrands and convex integral functions Wed 07 Oct 2015 16:32:06 EST ]]> DNA and RNA analyses in detection of genetic predisposition to cancer Wed 07 Oct 2015 16:32:04 EST ]]> Prognostic and diagnostic significance of DNA methylation patterns in high grade serous ovarian cancer BRCA1, EN1, DLEC1, HOXA9, RASSF1A, GATA4, GATA5, HSULF1, CDH1, SFN) were examined and compared in a cohort of 80 primary HGSOC and 12 benign ovarian surface epithelium (OSE) samples using methylation-specific headloop suppression PCR. Results: The genes were variably methylated in primary HGSOC, with HOXA9 methylation observed in 95% of cases. Most genes were rarely methylated in benign OSE, with the exception of SFN which was methylated in all HGSOC and benign OSE samples examined. Methylation of DLEC1 was associated with disease recurrence, independent of tumor stage and suboptimal surgical debulking (HR 3.5 (95% CI:1.10–11.07), p = 0.033). A combination of the methylation status of HOXA9 and EN1 could discriminate HGSOC from benign OSE with a sensitivity of 98.8% and a specificity of 91.7%, which increased to 100% sensitivity with no loss of specificity when pre-operative CA125 levels were also incorporated. Conclusions: This study provides further evidence to support the feasibility of detecting altered DNA methylation patterns as a potential diagnostic and prognostic approach for HGSOC.]]> Wed 07 Oct 2015 16:32:04 EST ]]> Transabdominal electrical stimulation increases colonic propagating pressure waves in paediatric slow transit constipation Wed 07 Oct 2015 16:25:13 EST ]]> Painting pictures and playing musical instruments: change in participation and relationship to health in older women P = 0.004) and role limitations due to emotional factors (OR 1.6, 95% CI 1.0–2.5; P = 0.002) were associated with starting participation.

Observational, cohort, correlation, cross-sectional and longitudinal studies were all included in the current review. Results of the review found eight articles that met inclusion criteria, which included data on 214 athletes and 96 controls. Seven of eight studies reported some type of DTI abnormality, although the neuroanatomical sites involved varied. Although considerable methodological variations exist across studies, the current review suggests that DTI may possess adequate diagnostic sensitivity to detect SRC in affected athletes.

All patients received Indian F(ab’)₂ snake antivenom manufactured by VINS Bioproducts Ltd. Antivenom concentrations were measured with sandwich enzyme immunoassays. Timed antivenom concentrations were analysed using MONOLIXvs4.2. One, two and three compartment models with zero order input and first order elimination kinetics were assessed. Models were parameterized with clearance(CL), intercompartmental clearance(Q), central compartment volume(V) and peripheral compartment volume(VP). Between-subject-variability (BSV) on relative bioavailability (F) was included to account for dose variations. Covariates effects (age, sex, weight, antivenom batch, pre-antivenom concentrations) were explored by visual inspection and in model building. There were 75 patients, median age 57 years (40-70y) and 64 (85%) were male. 411 antivenom concentration data points were analysed. A two compartment model with zero order input, linear elimination kinetics and a combined error model best described the data. Inclusion of BSV on F and weight as a covariate on V improved the model. Inclusion of pre-antivenom concentrations or different batches on BSV of F did not. Final model parameter estimates were CL,0.078 Lh⁻¹, V,2.2L, Q,0.178Lh⁻¹ and VP,8.33L. The median half-life of distribution was 4.6h (10-90%iles:2.6-7.1h) and half-life of elimination, 140h (10th-90th percentilesx:95-223h).

Spermatogonia in the prepubertal testes of such mice had abnormal proliferation and delayed entry into meiosis. Although early recombination events were initiated, male germ cells failed to progress beyond zygotene and underwent apoptosis. Loss of APC/CFZR1 activity was associated with raised cyclin B1 levels, suggesting that CDK1 may trigger apoptosis. By contrast, female FZR1Δ mice were subfertile, with premature onset of ovarian failure by 5 months of age. Germ cell loss occurred embryonically in the ovary, around the time of the zygotene-pachytene transition, similar to that observed in males. In addition, the transition of primordial follicles into the growing follicle pool in the neonatal ovary was abnormal, such that the primordial follicles were prematurely depleted. We conclude that APC/CFZR1 is an essential regulator of spermatogonial proliferation and early meiotic prophase I in both male and female germ cells and is therefore important in establishing the reproductive health of adult male and female mammals.]]> Tue 06 Oct 2015 15:41:03 EST ]]> Quantitative neutron diffraction texture measurement applied to α-alpha;-phase alumina and Ti₃AlC₂ Tue 06 Oct 2015 15:34:08 EST ]]> Verification of the elastic constants for α-AI<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> using high-resolution neutron diffraction 2O3 (corundum).

In this paper, we present a detailed structural, morphological, and compositional study on CoxGey formation on Ge(001) at room temperature metal deposition and subsequent annealing. Scanning tunneling microscopy and low energy electron diffraction clearly demonstrate that room temperature deposition of approximately four monolayers of Co on Ge(001) results in the Volmer Weber growth mode, while subsequent thermal annealing leads to the formation of a Co-germanide continuous wetting layer which evolves gradually towards the growth of elongated CoxGey nanostructures. Two types of CoxGey nanostructures, namely, flattop- and ridge-type, were observed and a systematic study on their evolution as a function of temperature is presented. Additional transmission electron microscopy and x-ray photoemission spectroscopy measurements allowed us to monitor the reaction between Co and Ge in the formation process of the CoxGey continuous wetting layer as well as the CoxGey nanostructures.]]> Tue 06 Oct 2015 14:31:04 EST ]]> Asthma in pregnancy: a hit for two Tue 06 Oct 2015 13:00:04 EST ]]> Do other cardiovascular risk factors influence the impact of age on the association between blood pressure and mortality? the MORGAM Project Tue 06 Oct 2015 12:46:04 EST ]]> Modelling and simulation of seasonal rainfall using the principle of maximum entropy Tue 06 Oct 2015 12:32:04 EST ]]> Stimulus type and the list strength paradigm Tue 06 Oct 2015 12:25:07 EST ]]> Prevalence of comorbid depression and obesity in general practice: a cross-sectional survey Tue 06 Oct 2015 12:25:04 EST ]]> Microcapsules fabricated from liquid marbles stabilized with latex particles Tue 06 Oct 2015 12:04:04 EST ]]> Changing bed bulk density and other process conditions during iron ore sintering Tue 06 Oct 2015 12:04:03 EST ]]> Speleothems as sensitive recorders of volcanic eruptions - the Bronze Age Minoan eruption recorded in a stalagmite from Turkey Tue 06 Oct 2015 11:57:03 EST ]]> Distributed optimal dispatch of virtual power plant based on elm transformation Tue 06 Oct 2015 11:50:03 EST ]]> Robust homogenization and consensus of nonlinear multi-agent systems reference dynamics. However, the reference dynamics do not generate a specific reference trajectory for feedback regulation for any agent. For this purpose, the proposed controller integrates two fundamental actions, homogenization and consensus, concurrently. On one hand, it asymptotically regulates each individual (heterogeneous, nonlinear, and uncertain) agent dynamics to the common reference dynamics using a robust homogenization technique; on the other hand, it aligns agent trajectories, asymptotically governed by the common reference dynamics, to consensus through network cooperation. The effectiveness of the controller is verified in the rigorous proof and numerical simulation.]]> Tue 06 Oct 2015 11:36:04 EST ]]> The 'women's movement' in modern Islam: reflections on the revival of Islam's oldest issue Thu 08 Oct 2015 16:34:04 EST ]]> Missense mutations in ITPR1 cause autosomal dominant congenital nonprogressive spinocerebellar ataxia Thu 08 Oct 2015 12:36:04 EST ]]> Sperm motility is lost in vitro as a consequence of mitochondrial free radical production and the generation of electrophilic aldehydes but can be significantly rescued by the presence of nucleophilic thiols Thu 08 Oct 2015 12:29:03 EST ]]> The effectiveness of debriefing in simulation-based learning for health professionals: a systematic review Thu 08 Oct 2015 11:47:04 EST ]]> Inadvertent Occlusion of the Anterior Choroidal Artery Explains Infarct Variability in the Middle Cerebral Artery Thread Occlusion Stroke Model Sat 10 Oct 2015 03:48:38 EST ]]> pubs:100288 Sat 10 Oct 2015 03:48:36 EST ]]> Some open problems on graph labelings Sat 10 Oct 2015 03:48:34 EST ]]> Cutting edge(s): An ethnographic drama in three acts Sat 10 Oct 2015 03:48:34 EST ]]> pubs:100305 Sat 10 Oct 2015 03:48:30 EST ]]> Analysis of circular tunnels due to seismic P-wave propagation, with emphasis on unreinforced concrete liners Sat 10 Oct 2015 03:48:29 EST ]]> Impact of dietary and exercise interventions onweight change andmetabolic outcomes in obese children and adolescents a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized trials Sat 10 Oct 2015 03:48:28 EST ]]> pubs:100304 Sat 10 Oct 2015 03:48:25 EST ]]> Effective interprofessional collaboration in rural contexts: A research protocol Sat 10 Oct 2015 03:48:23 EST ]]> Diet quality, measured by fruit and vegetable intake, predicts weight change in young women. 0.05).

Hz) to long-wave (f < 0.05. Hz) frequency bands is found to be significantly different between the three beach types. Swash energy at short-wave frequencies is dominant on reflective and intermediate beaches and swash at long-wave frequencies is dominant on dissipative beaches; consistent with previously reported spectral signatures for the surf zone on these beach types. The available swash spectra were classified using an automated algorithm (CLARA) into five different classes. The ordered classes represent an evolution in the spectrum shape, described by a frequency downshifting of the energy peak from the short-wave into the long-wave frequency band and an increase in the long-wave swash energy level compared to a relatively minor variation in the short-wave swash energy level. A universally common feature of spectra from all beach-states was an ƒ⁻⁴ energy roll-off in the short-wave frequency band. In contrast to the broadly uniform appearance of the short-wave frequency band, the appearance of the long wave frequency band was highly variable across the beach-states. We incorporate the results presented here and previously published observations into the morphodynamic beach-state model, and propose an ordered sequence of swash spectra under increasing and decreasing incident wave energy level. This extension of the beach-state model to include the swash zone leads to the following propositions for morphodynamic controls on the nature of the swash spectrum. (1) The short-wave part of the swash spectrum is relatively constant in form across all beach-states (ƒ⁻⁴ energy roll-off) and the energy density per unit frequency is controlled by the beach face gradient alone. (2) The spectral bandwidth of the energy roll-off varies directly with offshore wave energy level and inversely with beach face gradient (or beach-state), in a manner consistent with the non-linear wave breaking criterion. (3) The infragravity part of the swash spectrum is highly variable in form across all beach-states and the energy level is related to the offshore wave energy level and surf zone morphology.]]> Fri 02 Oct 2015 16:53:11 EST ]]> Cyber-physical logistics system-based vehicle routing optimization Fri 02 Oct 2015 16:53:09 EST ]]> Nucleotide excision repair of UVA-induced DNA damage: regulation in sunlight-induced melanoma Fri 02 Oct 2015 16:53:07 EST ]]> Dynamic correlation analysis of spill-over effects of interest rate risk and return on Australian and US financial firms Fri 02 Oct 2015 16:53:06 EST ]]> Mechanical tunability via hydrogen bonding in metal-organic frameworks with the perovskite architecture Fri 02 Oct 2015 16:53:04 EST ]]> Fleets of Tarshish: trading ventures and other tall tales of the Bible Fri 02 Oct 2015 16:46:10 EST ]]> Hand rendering in contemporary visual communication Fri 02 Oct 2015 16:46:09 EST ]]> Are Dow Jones Islamic equity indices exposed to interest rate risk?
