The generated samples, the dimensionality of which was determined by appropriate periodic boundary conditions imposed upon the generated supercells, were initially either perfectly ordered in the c-variant L1₀ superstructure ((001)-oriented monatomic planes), or completely disordered in the fcc crystalline structure. Vacancy-mediated creation of equilibrium atomic configurations was modelled by relaxing the systems at temperatures below the 'order-disorder' transition point using the Glauber algorithm implemented with the vacancy mechanism of atomic migration. The (100)-type-surface-induced heterogeneous nucleation of L1₀-order domains was observed and quantified by means of an original parameterization enabling selective determination of volume fractions of particular L1₀-variants. Due to the specific competition between the three kinds of (100)-type free surfaces, the initial c-L1₀ variant long-range order appeared to be the most stable in the cubic nanoparticle. The initially disordered samples were transformed by the creation of a specific L1₀ domain structure with a mosaic of particular L1₀-variant domains at the surfaces and almost homogeneous long-range order in the inner volume. The analysis of correlation effects revealed that chemical ordering was initiated at the free surfaces.]]> Wed 22 Jun 2016 15:04:21 EST ]]> Investigation of the cues underlying myopia and their association with retinal neuronal nitric oxide synthase in the guinea pig eye Wed 15 Jun 2016 14:45:54 EST ]]> Speech pathology assessment of cognitive communication during early recovery following traumatic brain injury Wed 08 Jun 2016 11:45:01 EST ]]> Methodological background and strategy for the 2012-2013 updated consensus definitions and clinical practice guidelines from the abdominal compartment society 80%, and four (33%) accepted by > 50%, but required discussion to produce revised definitions. One (8%) was rejected by > 50%. In addition to previous 2006 definitions, the panel also defined the open abdomen, lateralization of the abdominal musculature, polycompartment syndrome, abdominal compliance, and suggested a refined open abdomen classification system. Recommendations were possible regarding intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) measurement, approach to sustained IAH, philosophy of protocolized IAP management and same-hospital-stay fascial closure, use of decompressive laparotomy, and negative pressure wound therapy. Consensus suggestions included use of non-invasive therapies for treating IAH/ACS, considering body position and IAP, damage control resuscitation, prophylactic open abdomen usage, and prudence in early biological mesh usage. No recommendations were made for the use of diuretics, albumin, renal replacement therapies, and utilizing abdominal perfusion pressure as a resuscitation-endpoint. Collaborating Methodological Guideline Development and Clinical Experts produced Consensus Definitions/Clinical Management statements encompassing the most contemporary evidence. Data summaries now exist for clinically relevant IAH/ACS questions, which will facilitate future scientific reanalysis.]]> Wed 01 Jun 2016 14:53:54 EST ]]> Connective tissue growth factor as a novel therapeutic target in high grade serous ovarian cancer Wed 01 Jun 2016 14:53:54 EST ]]> Influenza epidemiology in adults admitted to sentinel Australian hospitals in 2014: the Influenza Complications Alert Network (FluCAN) 16 years) were admitted with confirmed influenza to one of 15 of 17 FluCAN sentinel hospitals (excluding 2 paediatric hospitals). Of these, 47% were over 65 years of age, 10% were Indigenous Australians, 3.3% were pregnant and 85% had chronic co-morbidities. The majority of cases were due to influenza A. Influenza B was detected in 7% of patients. There were a large number of hospital admissions detected with confirmed influenza in this national observational surveillance system in 2014. These are estimated to represent a national annual burden of around 15,000 admissions and almost 100,000 bed-days nationally.]]> Wed 01 Jun 2016 14:53:50 EST ]]> Effects of dietary supplementation with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) on hippocampal gene expression in streptozotocin induced diabetic C57Bl/6 mice Wed 01 Jun 2016 14:53:50 EST ]]> Examining determinants of cross buying behaviour in retail banking Wed 01 Jun 2016 14:47:10 EST ]]> TCF4 gene polymorphism is associated with cognition in patients with schizophrenia and healthy controls 2 = 3.48, p = 0.062 and X2 = 0.036, p = 0.036, respectively). Cognitive test scores were significantly lower in patients than in controls on all scales (all p < 0.001) except for the visuospatial/constructional index (p > 0.05). There were significant genotype effects on delayed memory score (p = 0.013), the RBANS total score (p = 0.028) and language score (p = 0.034). Further analysis showed that the language score significantly differed according to the genotypic groups (A/A+T/A group versus T/T group) (p = 0.007) in patients but not in controls (p > 0.05), and the delayed memory score also significantly differed according to the genotypic groups (A/A+T/A group versus T/T group) (p = 0.021) in controls but not in patients (p > 0.05). Conclusions: This study found that the A allele of the TCF4 rs2958182 polymorphism was the risk allele of schizophrenia, and was associated with lower cognitive performance in language in schizophrenia and delayed memory in controls. In contrast, the T allele of this polymorphism was found to be the schizophrenia risk allele in another study in Han Chinese people.]]> Wed 01 Jun 2016 14:47:08 EST ]]> H∞ and H2 Norms of 2-D Mixed Continuous-Discrete-Time Systems via Rationally-Dependent Complex Lyapunov Functions Wed 01 Jun 2016 14:47:06 EST ]]> Managerial attitudes toward social and environmental accountability: evidence from Indian pharmaceutical and biotech industry Wed 01 Jun 2016 14:46:56 EST ]]> Multiple and severe forms of socioeconomic disadvantage and tobacco use: exploring the factors that contribute to smoking amongst clients of community service organisations Wed 01 Jun 2016 12:26:56 EST ]]> The indigenous music of East Timor and its relationship to the social and cultural mores and lulik worldview of its autochthonous people Wed 01 Jun 2016 12:26:55 EST ]]> Self-compassion and gratitude as mediators of the attachment - psychological health relationship Wed 01 Jun 2016 12:26:52 EST ]]> Exploring the positive and negative experiences of supporting survivors of the Sri Lankan civil war: the 'lived' experiences of Playback Theatre practitioners Wed 01 Jun 2016 12:20:05 EST ]]> The Hunter Rubáiyát: illustrating Edward FitzGerald's Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyam in an contemporary Australian setting Wed 01 Jun 2016 12:19:58 EST ]]> A focus on the essential roles of the Musashi family of RNA binding proteins during mammalian spermatogenesis Wed 01 Jun 2016 12:19:58 EST ]]> WaveWatch, an ambient information system displaying real-time web traffic data Wed 01 Jun 2016 12:19:54 EST ]]> Examining doctoral examination and the question of the Viva Tue 28 Jun 2016 16:05:19 EST ]]> Airmanship in Australian aviation Tue 07 Jun 2016 16:23:03 EST ]]> The clinical utility of the toe brachial index in older adults and people with diabetes Tue 07 Jun 2016 16:16:04 EST ]]> The effectiveness of treatment of cervicogenic dizziness with manual therapy Tue 07 Jun 2016 16:02:06 EST ]]> Trends, régimes, collocations, co-expressions and trees: new methods for analysing sequential aspects of literary language and literary data Tue 07 Jun 2016 15:27:02 EST ]]> Ethical business practices and consumers' purchase intentions for a fast moving consumer good in Hong Kong Tue 07 Jun 2016 14:59:02 EST ]]> Assessment of reliable change using 95% credible intervals for the differences in proportions: a statistical analysis for case study methodology Tue 07 Jun 2016 14:38:03 EST ]]> Osteoarthritis prevalence and modifiable factors: a population study 30 kg/m2) was significantly associated with the prevalence of knee (OR: 4.37; 95 % CI: 2.08,9.20) and hip (OR: 2.52; 95 % CI: 1.17,5.43) OA. Individuals who stand or walk a lot, but do not carry or lift things during their occupational activities were 2.0 times less likely to have hip OA (OR: 0.50; 95 % CI: 0.26,0.96). Individuals who usually lift or carry light loads or have to climb stairs or hills were 2.2 times less likely to have hip OA (OR: 0.45; 95 % CI: 0.21,0.95). The odds of having hip OA were 1.9 times lower in individuals consuming recommended or higher vitamin C intake (OR: 0.52; 95 % CI: 0.29,0.96). Significant differences in prevalence were found for both males and females across age categories. Conclusion: The prevalence of knee and hip OA obtained in this study is comparable to other studies. Females have greater knee OA prevalence and a greater proportion of women have mobility limitations as well as hip and knee pain; it is important to target this sub-group.]]> Tue 07 Jun 2016 14:17:03 EST ]]> Experimental data from The University of Newcastle's July 2014 repeatable explosive field trials Tue 07 Jun 2016 14:17:02 EST ]]> Religious perspectives on human suffering: implications for medicine and bioethics Tue 07 Jun 2016 14:10:07 EST ]]> Transcutaneous immunization with combined cholera toxin and CpG adjuvant protects against Chlamydia muridarum genital tract infection Tue 07 Jun 2016 14:10:04 EST ]]> The moderating impacts of national culture on managerial workforce behaviours in local hotels: a case study in Vietnam Tue 07 Jun 2016 13:14:02 EST ]]> The multiple sclerosis whole blood mRNA transcriptome and genetic associations indicate dysregulation of specific T cell pathways in pathogenesis Tue 07 Jun 2016 12:46:00 EST ]]> A multiway relay channel with balanced sources Tue 07 Jun 2016 11:15:02 EST ]]> Prevention of postpartum haemorrhage: cost consequences analysis of misoprostol in low-resource settings Thu 23 Jun 2016 15:34:22 EST ]]> How do general practitioners manage patients with cancer symptoms?

Cell-free supernatant was collected after 1 h for neutrophil elastase (NE) and matrix metalloproteinase- (MMP-) 9 measurements or after 24 h for CXCL8 release. Results: Constitutive NE was enhanced in AGood neutrophils compared to HC. fMLF stimulated neutrophils from ASubopt but not AGood produced 50% of HC levels. fMLF induced MMP-9 was impaired in ASubopt and AGood compared to HC. fMLF stimulated CXCL8 but not MMP-9 was positively correlated with FEV1 and FEV1/FVC. ASubopt and AGood responded similarly to other stimuli. Conclusions: Circulating neutrophils are different in asthma; however, this is likely to be related to airflow limitation rather than asthma control.]]> Mon 30 May 2016 16:00:14 EST ]]> Effect of clarification on the polyphenolic compound content and antioxidant activity of commercial apple juices Mon 30 May 2016 16:00:13 EST ]]> Vascular assessment techniques of podiatrists in Australia and New Zealand: a web-based survey Mon 30 May 2016 16:00:09 EST ]]> Nutritional solutions to reduce risks of negative health impacts of air pollution Mon 30 May 2016 16:00:09 EST ]]> Education of ICU nurses regarding invasive mechanical ventilation: findings from a cross-sectional survey Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:51 EST ]]> A critical review of chronic traumatic encephalopathy Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:47 EST ]]> Investigation of gene expression underpinning partitioning of seed storage compunds in legumes Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:41 EST ]]> Structural, electronic and optical properties of titania nanotubes Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:38 EST ]]> Saving Private Hegel: Australian Liberalism and the 1914-1918 war Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:37 EST ]]> Computer simulations of particle-bubble interactions using discrete element method Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:36 EST ]]> Risk assessment of drug-induced QT prolongation Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:28 EST ]]> Management of chronic refractory cough Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:25 EST ]]> A criterion space search algorithm for biobjective integer programming: the balanced box method Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:24 EST ]]> Transfert de langue, transfert de culture: la traduction en français du roman Southern Steel de l'Australienne Dymphna Cusack Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:16 EST ]]> Scientism as a social response to the problem of suicide Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:11 EST ]]> Wavelet analysis of wall turbulence to study large-scale modulation of small scales Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:08 EST ]]> An experimental investigation of unsaturated clay: volume change and microstructural considerations Mon 30 May 2016 15:46:10 EST ]]> Paracingulate sulcus morphology is associated with hallucinations in the human brain Mon 27 Jun 2016 16:31:19 EST ]]> Life expectancy discussions in a multisite sample of Australian medical oncology outpatients Mon 27 Jun 2016 16:25:11 EST ]]> Preparatory education for cancer patients undergoing surgery: a systematic review of volume and quality of research output over time n = 99) and descriptive (n = 83). Fourteen intervention studies met EPOC design criteria. Face-to-face interventions reported benefits for anxiety (5/7), satisfaction (1/1), knowledge (3/3) and health care costs (1/1). Audio-visual and multi-media interventions improved satisfaction (1/1) and knowledge (2/3), but not anxiety (0/3). Written interventions were mixed. Conclusion: Descriptive studies dominate the literature examining preoperative education in oncology populations, with few rigorous intervention studies. Pre-operative education can improve satisfaction, knowledge and reduce anxiety. Practice implications: Further work should be directed at multi-modal interventions, and those that include the caregiver, given their role in assisting patients to prepare and recover from surgery.]]> Mon 27 Jun 2016 16:25:11 EST ]]> Improving the continuity of smoking cessation care delivered by quitline services Mon 27 Jun 2016 16:25:08 EST ]]> A screening method for rural flash flooding risk assessment Mon 27 Jun 2016 16:25:08 EST ]]> A randomised trial comparing low-fat diets differing in carbohydrate and protein ratio, combined with regular moderate intensity exercise, on glycaemic control, cardiometabolic risk factors, food cravings, cognitive function and psychological wellbeing in adults with type 2 diabetes: study protocol Mon 27 Jun 2016 16:12:11 EST ]]> The relationship between carbohydrate and the mealtime insulin dose in type 1 diabetes Mon 27 Jun 2016 13:08:18 EST ]]> Quality Teaching Rounds as a professional development intervention for enhancing the quality of teaching: rationale and study protocol for a cluster randomised controlled trial Mon 27 Jun 2016 12:33:18 EST ]]> A cine-EPID based method for jaw detection and quality assurance for tracking jaw in IMRT/VMAT treatments Mon 27 Jun 2016 12:26:21 EST ]]> Transmission connection and charging methodologies for integration of renewable energy in Australia Mon 27 Jun 2016 11:58:22 EST ]]> Board independence and firm performance - the Hong Kong context Mon 06 Jun 2016 13:05:03 EST ]]> Covalent surface modification of biomimetic silica particles Fri 27 May 2016 16:43:56 EST ]]> The paradoxical effects of workforce shortages on rural interprofessional practice Fri 27 May 2016 16:43:47 EST ]]> Stop-signal response inhibition in schizophrenia: behavioural, event-related potential and functional neuroimaging data Fri 27 May 2016 16:37:12 EST ]]> Mandatory corporate social responsibility as a vehicle for reducing inequality: an Indian solution for Piketty and the millennials Fri 27 May 2016 16:37:09 EST ]]> Risk-based passenger screening: risk and economic assessment of TSA PreCheck increased security at reduced cost?
