In the fully adjusted model, those who were in the top tertile of the ARFS significantly gained lower weight gain compared with the lower tertile for the plausible TEI sub-sample (β = -1.6 kg (95% CI: -2.67 to -0.56), P = 0.003). In the fully adjustment model, young women were classified in the highest FAVI tertile and gained significantly less weight than those in the lowest tertile for the plausible TEI (β = -1.6 kg (95% CI: -2.4 to -0.3) P = 0.01). In conclusion, overall diet quality measured by the ARFS and the frequency and variety of fruit and vegetable consumption may predict long-term weight gain in young women. Therefore, health promotion programs encouraging frequent consumption of a wide variety of fruits and vegetables are warranted.]]> Wed 29 Jul 2015 03:38:25 EST ]]> pubs:state Wed 29 Jul 2015 03:38:24 EST ]]> pubs:100302 Wed 29 Jul 2015 03:38:22 EST ]]> pubs:100306 Wed 29 Jul 2015 03:38:21 EST ]]> pubs:100299 Wed 29 Jul 2015 03:38:20 EST ]]> The relevance of the ISO26000 social responsibility issues to the Hong Kong Construction Industry Wed 29 Jul 2015 03:38:19 EST ]]> Cutting edge(s): An ethnographic drama in three acts Wed 29 Jul 2015 03:38:18 EST ]]> Hypoxia and integrin-mediated epithelial restitution during mucosal inflammation Wed 29 Jul 2015 03:38:15 EST ]]> pubs:226203 Wed 29 Jul 2015 03:38:15 EST ]]> pubs:100361 Wed 29 Jul 2015 03:38:13 EST ]]> pubs:100288 Wed 29 Jul 2015 03:38:12 EST ]]> Development and psychometric testing of the ascent to competence scale Tue 28 Jul 2015 15:16:12 EST ]]> Professional nephrology nursing portfolios: maintaining competence to practise Tue 28 Jul 2015 15:09:12 EST ]]> Factors affecting medical students' sense of belonging in a longitudinal integrated clerkship Tue 28 Jul 2015 15:02:11 EST ]]> Sampling zeros of discrete models for fractional order systems Tue 28 Jul 2015 14:55:12 EST ]]> The acceptability to Aboriginal Australians of a family-based intervention to reduce alcohol-related harms Tue 28 Jul 2015 14:48:12 EST ]]> Can harms associated with high-intensity drinking be reduced by increasing the price of alcohol?

Selectivity of 3a was investigated against a panel of three tumor and one normal colon cell lines and showed up to six times less toxicity against normal colonocytes. Compound 3a was shown to induce dose-dependent apoptosis of HT116 colon tumor cells as evidenced by measuring the activity of caspases-3 and 7. None of the synthesized compounds showed activity against COX-1 or COX-2 isozymes, confirming a COX-independent mechanism of action. Compound 3k was found to have no ulcerogenic effect in rats as indicated by electron microscope scanning of the stomach after oral administration.

The majority of participants indicated the Web-based survey was easy to complete (97.9%, 531/543) and comprehensive (93.1%, 505/543). Participants also reported the interactive relative prioritization exercise was easy to complete (97.0%, 189/195) and helped them to decide which initiatives were of most importance (84.6%, 165/195). Average completion time was 8.54 minutes (SD 3.91) and the Flesch-Kincaid reading level was 6.8. Overall, 84.6% (447/529) of participants indicated a willingness to complete a similar survey again. Conclusions: The Web-based Consumer Preferences Survey is sufficiently reliable and highly acceptable to patients. Based on completion times and reading level, this tool could be integrated in routine clinical practice and allows consumers to easily participate in quality evaluation. Results provide a comprehensive list of patient-prioritized initiatives for patients with major chronic conditions and delivers practice-ready evidence to guide improvements in patient-centered care.]]> Tue 28 Jul 2015 13:24:12 EST ]]> Multi-mode resonant control of a microcantilever for atomic force microscopy Tue 28 Jul 2015 13:03:12 EST ]]> A MEMS electromagnetic energy harvester using ultrasonic excitation Tue 28 Jul 2015 12:49:12 EST ]]> Material point method modelling of granular flow in inclined channels Tue 28 Jul 2015 12:42:11 EST ]]> Effect of a cluster on gas-solid drag from lattice Boltzmann simulations Tue 28 Jul 2015 12:42:11 EST ]]> Selective oestrogen receptor modulators in prevention of breast cancer: an updated meta-analysis of individual participant data Tue 28 Jul 2015 12:35:13 EST ]]> Immunohistochemical BAG1 expression improves the estimation of residual risk by IHC4 in postmenopausal patients treated with anastrazole or tamoxifen: a TransATAC study Tue 28 Jul 2015 12:14:12 EST ]]> Personalizing the treatment of women with early breast cancer: highlights of the St Gallen international expert consensus on the primary therapy of early breast cancer 2013 Tue 28 Jul 2015 12:07:12 EST ]]> Eosinophils: changing perspectives in health and disease Tue 28 Jul 2015 11:04:12 EST ]]> Identification of ARMA models using intermittent and quantized output observations Tue 28 Jul 2015 10:57:12 EST ]]> Optimal filtering for networked systems with Markovian communication delays Tue 28 Jul 2015 10:50:12 EST ]]> Stability of the Kalman filtering with two periodically switching sensors over lossy networks Tue 28 Jul 2015 10:43:11 EST ]]> Relationship between airway neutrophilia and ageing in asthmatics and non-asthmatics 95th percentile of non-asthmatic counts for any given age group) were significantly more likely to be asthmatic (odds ratio = 2.5; 95% CI: 1.3, 5.0), with the greatest effect observed in the older age group. Other factors that independently associated with increased sputum neutrophil levels included atopy in non-asthmatic adults, male gender and current use of ICS in asthmatic adults. Age-specific reference values for neutrophil percentage were under 20 years-76%, 20–40 years-62%, 40–60 years-63% and over 60 years-67%. Conclusions: Airway neutrophilia is related to age in adults, with a neutrophilic asthma phenotype present in older adults. The use of appropriate age-specific reference values is recommended for future studies aimed at elucidating the role of neutrophils in asthma.]]> Tue 28 Jul 2015 10:29:13 EST ]]> The asthma control test and asthma control questionnaire for assessing asthma control: systematic review and meta-analysis Tue 28 Jul 2015 10:15:11 EST ]]> Characterization of a novel EPID designed for simultaneous imaging and dose verification in radiotherapy Tue 28 Jul 2015 10:08:12 EST ]]> The role of trainees as clinical teachers of medical students in psychiatry Tue 28 Jul 2015 09:54:11 EST ]]> PTEN loss and HOXA10 expression are associated with ovarian endometrioid adenocarcinoma differentiation and progression Tue 28 Jul 2015 09:47:12 EST ]]> Modeling density effect on hydro-mechanical behavior of unsaturated soils Tue 28 Jul 2015 09:19:12 EST ]]> Spatio-spectral analysis of supercontinuum generation in higher order electromagnetic modes of photonic crystal fiber Mon 27 Jul 2015 16:59:13 EST ]]> Why time flows Mon 27 Jul 2015 16:52:22 EST ]]> "Until we get up again to fight": education rights and participation in South Africa Mon 27 Jul 2015 16:52:20 EST ]]> An examination of barriers to Nurse Practitioner endorsement in senior rural drug and alcohol nurses in New South Wales Mon 27 Jul 2015 16:52:17 EST ]]> Improvement of major depression is associated with increased erythrocyte DHA Mon 27 Jul 2015 16:52:15 EST ]]> Expert interpretation of bitemark injuries: a contemporary qualitative study 10 years) tended to agree with each other less than those who had 10 years or less experience in forensic odontology. The differences in opinions can be at least partly accounted for by the inconsistent nature of approaches used by different practitioners in assessing bitemark evidence. The results of this study indicate that more definitive guidelines as to the assessment of bitemarks as patterned injuries should be developed to ensure the highest possible level of practitioner agreement.]]> Mon 27 Jul 2015 16:52:12 EST ]]> The safety of sputum induction in adults with acute exacerbation of COPD 20% occurred in only one subject with AECOPD who was in GOLD category III. The decrease in percentage of FEV1 from baseline was greatest in the second stage of induction, and correlated with that of the final stage (r = 0.589; P = 0.01). The fall in FEV1 during induction increased with GOLD category (P < 0.05). Conclusions:  SI can be safely and successfully performed in patients with moderate to very severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease who experience an exacerbation using this modified induction protocol. The early decrease in FEV1 can be used to predict the maximum fall.]]> Mon 27 Jul 2015 16:52:12 EST ]]> Froth recovery measurements in an industrial flotation cell Mon 27 Jul 2015 16:30:06 EST ]]> Differences in the regulation of RyR2 from human, sheep, and rat by Ca²⁺ and Mg²⁺ in the cytoplasm and in the lumen of the sarcoplasmic reticulum i = 10 µM at 100 nM Ca²⁺) that was similar to RyR2 from rat and sheep obtained under the same experimental conditions. However, in the presence of 0.1 mM Ca²⁺, RyR2s from human were 3.5-fold less sensitive to cytoplasmic Mg²⁺ inhibition than those from sheep and rat. The Kₐ values for luminal Ca²⁺ activation were similar in the three species (35 µM for human, 12 µM for sheep, and 10 µM for rat). From the relationship between open probability and luminal [Ca²⁺], the peak open probability for the human RyR2 was approximately the same as that for sheep, and both were ~10-fold greater than that for rat RyR2. Human RyR2 also showed the same sensitivity to luminal Mg²⁺ as that from sheep, whereas rat RyR2 was 10-fold more sensitive. In all species, modulation of RyR2 gating by luminal Ca²⁺ and Mg²⁺ only occurred when cytoplasmic [Ca²⁺] was <3 µM. The activation response of RyR2 to luminal and cytoplasmic Ca²⁺ was strongly dependent on the Mg²⁺ concentration. Addition of physiological levels (1 mM) of Mg²⁺ raised the Kₐ for cytoplasmic Ca²⁺ to 30 µM (human and sheep) or 90 µM (rat) and raised the Kₐ for luminal Ca²⁺ to ~1 mM in all species. This is the first report of the regulation by Ca²⁺ and Mg²⁺ of native RyR2 receptor activity from healthy human hearts.]]> Mon 27 Jul 2015 16:03:13 EST ]]> Impaired macrophage phagocytosis in non-eosinophilic asthma Mon 27 Jul 2015 15:42:12 EST ]]> Albrecht Dürer and the ideal city Mon 27 Jul 2015 15:28:13 EST ]]> Multistep finite control set model predictive control for power electronics Mon 27 Jul 2015 15:28:13 EST ]]> Sediment transport, sorting and three-dimensional flow patterns in pool-riffle sequences: implications for self-maintenance Mon 27 Jul 2015 15:21:12 EST ]]> Performance analysis of a distributed 6LoWPAN network for the Smart Grid applications Mon 27 Jul 2015 15:00:15 EST ]]> Rear area in the great patriotic war (1941-1945): Red army men's wives and families struggle for survival in Yaroslavl Mon 27 Jul 2015 15:00:13 EST ]]> Roles of peroxides and unsaturation in spontaneous heating of linseed oil Mon 27 Jul 2015 15:00:13 EST ]]> Resequencing and fine-mapping of the chromosome 12q13-14 locus associated with multiple sclerosis refines the number of implicated genes Mon 27 Jul 2015 14:53:21 EST ]]> Biodiversity discovery program Bush Blitz yields a new species of goblin spider, Cavisternum attenboroughi (Araneae: Oonopidae), from the Northern Territory Mon 27 Jul 2015 14:53:20 EST ]]> Management practices of Australian manufacturing firms: why are some firms more innovative?

Of the delayed rectifying K+ currents family it is of interest that KCNQ and hERG channels have been reported to be gestationally regulated in the uterus. These currents exhibit features similar to the broadly defined uterine IK1 of the original mathematical model. We thus formulated new quantitative descriptions for several IKCNQ and IhERG. Incorporation of these currents into the uterine cell model enabled simulations of the long-lasting bursting APs. Moreover, we used this modified model to simulate the effects of different contributions of IKCNQ and IhERG on AP form. Our findings suggest that the alterations in expression of hERG and KCNQ channels can potentially provide a mechanism for fine tuning of AP forms that lends a malleability for changing between plateau-like and long-lasting bursting-type APs as uterine cells prepare for parturition.]]> Mon 27 Jul 2015 13:01:12 EST ]]> The practicality of including the systemic inflammatory response syndrome in the definition of polytrauma: experience of a level one trauma centre 38 °C or <36 °C; Pulse >90 bpm; RR > 20/min or a PaCO₂ < 32 mmHg; WCC > 12.0 × 10⁹ L⁻¹, or <4.0 × 10⁹ L⁻¹, or the presence of >10 immature bands) collected from presentation, at 24 h intervals until 72 h post injury. Inclusion criteria were all patients generating a trauma team activation response age >16. Results: 336 patients met inclusion criteria. In 46% (155/336) serial SIRS scores could not be calculated due to missing data. Lowest rates of missing data observed on admission [3% (11/336)]. Stratified by ISS > 15 (132/336), in 7% (9/132) serial SIRS scores could not be calculated due to missing data. In 123 patients ISS > 15 with complete data, 81% (100/123) developed SIRS. For Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) > 2 in at least 2 body regions (64/336) in 5% (3/64) serial SIRS scores could not be calculated, with 92% (56/61) of patients with complete data developing SIRS. For Direct ICU admissions [25% (85/336)] 5% (4/85) of patients could not have serial SIRS calculated [mean ISS 15(±11)] and 90% (73/81) developed SIRS at least once over 72 h. Conclusion: Based on the experience of our level-1 trauma centre, the practicability of including SIRS into the definition of polytrauma as a surrogate for physiological derangement appears questionable even in prospective fashion.]]> Mon 27 Jul 2015 12:47:12 EST ]]> Intra-abdominal hypertension and the abdominal compartment syndrome: updated consensus definitions and clinical practice guidelines from the World Society of the Abdominal Compartment Syndrome Mon 27 Jul 2015 12:40:12 EST ]]> Efficacy of Mitomycin C for postoperative endoscopic sinus surgery: a systematic review and meta-analysis Mon 27 Jul 2015 12:26:13 EST ]]> Poor sleep quality is strongly associated with subsequent pain intensity in patients with acute low back pain Mon 27 Jul 2015 12:26:13 EST ]]> Control of a piezoelectrically actuated high-speed serial-kinematic AFM nanopositioner Mon 27 Jul 2015 11:58:15 EST ]]> The politics of war and the 'Battle of Balaclava' Mon 27 Jul 2015 11:58:14 EST ]]> Dietary supplementation with resveratrol and/or docosahexaenoic acid alters hippocampal gene expression in adult C57Bl/6 mice Mon 27 Jul 2015 11:58:13 EST ]]>
