Serum cotinine, indicating exposure to cigarette smoke, was detected in 50.4% of mothers. Compared with non-Indigenous women, the cohort had 10 times the prevalence of antibodies to Helicobacter pylori (33 vs. 3%). Levels of immunoglobulin G, antibodies to H. pylori, and C-reactive protein (CRP) were all inversely correlated with gestational age (P < 0.05). CRP levels were positively associated with maternal body mass index (BMI; ρ = 0.449, P = 0.001). The effects of cigarette smoke (cotinine) and inflammation (CRP) were assessed in relation to risk factors for SIDS: gestational age at delivery and birth weight. Serum cotinine levels were negatively associated with birth weight (ρ = -0.37, P < 0.001), this correlation held true for both male (ρ = -0.39, P = 0.002) and female (ρ = -0.30, P = 0.017) infants. Cotinine was negatively associated with gestational age at delivery (ρ = -0.199, P = 0.023). When assessed by fetal sex, this was significant only for males (ρ = -0.327, P = 0.011). CRP was negatively associated with gestational age at delivery for female infants (ρ = -0.46, P < 0.001). In contrast, maternal BMI was significantly correlated with birth weight. These data highlight the importance of putting programs in place to reduce cigarette smoke exposure in pregnancy and to treat women with chronic infections such as H. pylori to improve pregnancy outcomes and decrease risk factors for sudden death in infancy.]]> Tue 24 Apr 2018 16:00:57 AEST ]]> Do you hear me?

RNA-polymerase-II (Pol-II) bound only to three particular epialleles in cAMP-stimulated cells, while phospho-cAMP response element-binding protein (pCREB) bound to only one epiallele, which was different from those selected by Pol-II. Binding of TATA-binding protein increased during syncytial differentiation preferentially at epialleles compatible with Pol-II and pCREB binding. Histone-3 acetylation was detected only at epialleles targeted by Pol-II and pCREB, while gene activating histone-4 acetylation and histone-3-lysine-4 trimethylation occurred at CRH epialleles not associated with Pol-II or pCREB. The suppressive histone-3-lysine-27 trimethyl and-lysine-9 trimethyl modifications showed little or no epiallele preference. The epiallele selectivity of activating histone modifications and transcription factor binding demonstrates the epigenetic and functional diversity of the CRH gene in trophoblasts, which is controlled predominantly by the patterns, not the overall extent, of promoter methylation. We propose that conditions impacting on epiallele distribution influence the number of transcriptionally active CRH gene copies in the trophoblast cell population determining the gestational trajectory of placental CRH production in normal and pathological pregnancies.]]> Tue 24 Apr 2018 15:36:22 AEST ]]> Methylation of promoter regions of genes of the human intrauterine renin angiotensin system and their expression https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:26759 Tue 24 Apr 2018 15:35:25 AEST ]]> Methylation of the corticotropin releasing hormone gene promoter in BeWo cells: relationship to gene activity https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22723 Tue 24 Apr 2018 15:33:43 AEST ]]> Effect of vacuum-drying, hot air-drying and freeze-drying on polyphenols and antioxidant capacity of lemon (Citrus limon) pomace aqueous extracts https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32046 p‐coumaric acid content.

Median LOS for older patients was 34 h (interquartile range [IQR], 16-75 h), longer than for younger patients (16 h; IQR, 9-25 h; P<0.001). 133 older patients (21.2%) were admitted to an ICU, compared with 1976 younger patients (11.9%; P<0.001). 24 older patients (3.8%) and 93 younger patients (0.6%) died; mortality among older patients declined over time. Hypotension and arrhythmias were more common in patients over 65. Benzodiazepines (24%) were the drugs most commonly ingested by older patients, but opioids the most frequently taken drugs in fatal cases. Toxic ingestion of cardiovascular drugs increased threefold over the 26 years; about one-third of poisonings were unintentional or iatrogenic. Recreational drugs were implicated in the admissions of four older patients (0.6%), but in 7.8% of those of people under 65. Conclusion: Older patients treated for self-poisoning differ in several important respects from patients under 65. They are more severely affected by self-poisoning: LOS is greater, and ICU admission and mortality rates are higher.]]> Tue 24 Apr 2018 14:48:47 AEST ]]> Thinking in pharmacy practice: a study of community pharmacists' clinical reasoning in medication supply using the think-aloud method https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32044 Tue 24 Apr 2018 14:20:46 AEST ]]> Older patients' consultations in an apprenticeship model-based general practice training program: a cross-sectional study https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32043 Tue 24 Apr 2018 13:52:45 AEST ]]> Bragg-edge elastic strain tomography for in situ systems from energy-resolved neutron transmission imaging https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32042 in situ loads in the absence of residual stress.

Bisulphite sequencing showed that despite overall low levels of PR CpG island methylation, there was a significant decrease in methylated CpGs with labour in both preterm (P < 0.05) and term (P < 0.01) groups downstream of the PR-B transcription start site. This methylation change was not associated with altered PR-B expression, but may contribute to the increase in PR-A expression with labour. Chromatin immunoprecipitation revealed that the histone methyltransferase, SET and MYND domain-containing protein 3 (SMYD3), bound to the PR gene at significantly higher levels at the PR-A promoter compared with the PR-B promoter (P < 0.010), with no labour-associated changes observed. The H3K4 demethylase, Jumonji AT-rich interactive domain 1A (JARID1A), also bound to the PR-A, but not to the PR-B promoter prior to term labour, and decreased significantly at the onset of labour (P = 0.014), providing a mechanism for the previously reported increase in H3K4me3 level and PR-A expression with labour. Our studies suggest that epigenetic changes mediated by JARID1A, SMYD3 and DNA methylation may be responsible, at least in part, for the functional progesterone withdrawal that precipitates human labour.]]> Tue 24 Apr 2018 11:46:49 AEST ]]> Lower protein-to-carbohydrate ratio in maternal diet is associated with higher childhood systolic blood pressure up to age four years https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22165 40% of energy) intakes.

Breastfeeding initiation was 85.9% and median (interquartile range) duration of any breastfeeding was 1.4 (0.5–4.0) months. Infants were introduced to solid foods at 5.0 months (4.0–6.0) and cow’s milk at 12.0 (10.0–13.0) months. At 12 months postpartum, 66.7% of women were overweight or obese, 63.7% at 2 years. Compared with recommendations, reported median maternal nutrient intakes from 24-h recall were low in fibre, folate, iodine, calcium, potassium and vitamin D and high in proportions of energy from total and saturated fat. Limitations of this study include a small sample size and incomplete data for the cohort at each time point. Preliminary data from this ongoing cohort of Indigenous Australian women and children suggest that women may need support to optimize nutrient intakes and to attain a healthy body weight for themselves and their children.]]> Tue 24 Apr 2018 11:25:45 AEST ]]> Enzyme-linked immunoassay-based quantitative measurement of apolipoprotein B (ApoB) in dried blood spots, a biomarker of cardiovascular disease risk https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32041 Tue 24 Apr 2018 09:12:46 AEST ]]> Outcome of head and neck cancer patients who did not receive curative-intent treatment https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32040 Tue 24 Apr 2018 08:51:47 AEST ]]> The maximum forcing number of a polyomino https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32060 Thu 26 Apr 2018 15:20:50 AEST ]]> Survey of parent and carer experiences and expectations of paediatric rheumatology care in New South Wales https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32059 n=83) of the surveyed cohort, and 41.2% (n=61) saw four or more different clinicians before diagnosis. Between symptom onset and final diagnosis, 42.6% (n=63) of participants reported a delay of 5 months or more, and 16.9% (n=25) waited longer than 12 months. Eventually, 91% (n=134) were referred to a paediatric rheumatologist and 63.5% (n=94) were seen within 4 weeks from initial referral. More than half the respondents felt that general practitioners (GPS) and general paediatricians were not aware of RD. Overall, respondents felt that improved knowledge of PR diseases among GPS, improved access to PR clinics, improved educational materials for patients and families, access to speciality rheumatology nurses and coordinated rheumatology teams would have significantly improved the experience of their child's disease. Conclusions: Children with RD in NSW still experience significant delays from symptom onset to final diagnosis through consultations with multiple healthcare professionals. Multidisciplinary team care was not the norm for this patient group, despite established national and international management standards. What is known about the topic? Early diagnosis and management by a multidisciplinary team is the gold standard in PR management. Delays in diagnosis may significantly impair the outcomes of children diagnosed with RD, with reduced quality of life, increased pain level and worse long-term prognosis. What does this paper add? Children diagnosed with RD in NSW endure significant delays from symptom onset until a final diagnosis is made, with multiple consultations with different healthcare professionals. When the referral to PR services in NSW is made, RD children are mostly seen within 4 weeks, faster than other international standards. GPS and paediatric rheumatologists in NSW helped improve the children's and their family's experience of the diagnosis and treatment of a rheumatic condition and better informed them using appropriate educational materials. What are the implications for practitioners' This paper provides new evidence to practitioners to increase their knowledge of the current experiences and expectation of the paediatric rheumatology care in NSW.]]> Thu 26 Apr 2018 14:45:52 AEST ]]> What in the world is north? Translating cardinal directions across languages, cultures and environments https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32058 north is an abstract point on a compass, an arrow that tells you which way to hold up a map. Though scientifically defined according to the magnetic north pole, and/or the earth’s axis of rotation, these facts are not necessarily discernible to the average person. Perhaps for this reason, the Oxford English Dictionary begins with reference to the far more mundane and accessible sun and features of the human body, in defining north as; “in the direction of the part of the horizon on the left-hand side of a person facing the rising sun” (OED Online). Indeed, many of the words for ‘north’ around the world are etymologically linked to the left hand side (for example Cornish clēth ‘north, left’). We shall see later that even in English, many speakers conceptualise ‘north’ in an egocentric way. Other languages define ‘north’ in opposition to an orthogonal east-west axis defined by the sun’s rising and setting points (see, e.g., the extensive survey of Brown). Etymology aside, however, studies such as Brown’s presume a set of four cardinal directions which are available as primordial ontological categories which may (or may not) be labelled by the languages of the world. If we accept this premise, the fact that a word is translated as ‘north’ is sufficient to understand the direction it describes. There is good reason to reject this premise, however. We present data from three languages among which there is considerable variance in how the words translated as ‘north’ are typically used and understood. These languages are Kuuk Thaayorre (an Australian Aboriginal language spoken on Cape York Peninsula), Marshallese (an Oceanic language spoken in the Republic of the Marshall Islands), and Dhivehi (an Indo-Aryan language spoken in the Maldives). Lastly, we consider the results of an experiment that show Australian English speakers tend to interpret the word north according to the orientation of their own bodies and the objects they manipulate, rather than as a cardinal direction as such.]]> Thu 26 Apr 2018 14:31:52 AEST ]]> The nature diagnosability of bubble-sort star graphs under the PMC model and MM* model https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32057 n-dimensional bubble-sort star graph BSn has many good properties.

Trials consisted of precooling by combined cold-water immersion and ice slurry ingestion (PRE), midcooling by combined facial water spray and menthol mouth rinse (MID), a combination of all methods (ALL), and control (CON). Performance time was significantly faster in MID (13.7 ± 1.2 minutes; p < 0.01) and ALL (13.7 ± 1.4 minutes; p = 0.04) but not PRE (13.9 ± 1.4 minutes; p = 0.24) when compared with CON (14.2 ± 1.2 minutes). Precooling significantly reduced rectal temperature (initially by 0.5 ± 0.2° C), mean skin temperature, heart rate and sweat rate, and increased iEMG activity, whereas midcooling significantly increased expired air volume and respiratory exchange ratio compared with control. Significant decreases in forehead temperature, thermal sensation, and postexercise blood prolactin concentration were obser ved in all conditions compared with control. Performance was improved with midcooling, whereas precooling had little or no influence. Midcooling may have improved performance through an attenuated inhibitory psychophysiological and endocrine response to the heat.]]> Thu 26 Apr 2018 12:18:57 AEST ]]> Developing public health initiatives through understanding motivations of the audience at mass-gathering events https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32055 Thu 26 Apr 2018 12:18:56 AEST ]]> Can curcumin counteract cognitive decline?

Based on these results, one of us (Kimberley) conjectured a number-theoretic formula for the degree of A in the case x = y = 1/s for some integer s. These earlier studies were hampered by the enormous cost and complexity of the requisite computations. In this study, we address the Poisson polynomial problem with significantly more capable computational tools. As a result of this improved capability, we have confirmed that Kimberley’s formula holds for all integers s up to 52 (except for s = 41, 43, 47, 49, 51, which are still too costly to test), and also for s = 60 and s = 64. As far as we are aware, these computations, which employed up to 64,000-digit precision, producing polynomials with degrees up to 512 and integer coefficients up to 10229, constitute the largest successful integer relation computations performed to date. By examining the computed results, we found connections to a sequence of polynomials defined in a 2010 paper by Savin and Quarfoot. These investigations subsequently led to a proof, given in the Appendix, of Kimberley’s formula and the fact that when s is even, the polynomial is palindromic (i.e., coefficient ak = am − k, where m is the degree).]]> Thu 26 Apr 2018 11:36:50 AEST ]]> Rapid beneficiation of fine coal tailings using a novel agglomeration technology https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32051 Thu 26 Apr 2018 11:29:50 AEST ]]> Managing transient ischaemic attacks in Australia: a qualitative study https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32050 Thu 26 Apr 2018 10:47:50 AEST ]]> A systematic review on high reliability organisational theory as a safety management strategy in construction https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31918 Thu 26 Apr 2018 10:25:03 AEST ]]> Assessment of fetal kidney growth and birth weight in an Indigenous Australian cohort https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32049 Thu 26 Apr 2018 09:51:54 AEST ]]> Who uses long-acting reversible contraception? profile of LARC users in the CUPID cohort https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:25842 Thu 26 Apr 2018 09:51:52 AEST ]]> Agent-based simulation of contract rice farming in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32048 Thu 26 Apr 2018 09:44:52 AEST ]]> Utility of a brief index to measure diet quality of Australian preschoolers in the Feeding Healthy Food to Kids Randomised Controlled Trial https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:30404 Thu 19 Apr 2018 16:09:11 AEST ]]> The changing landscape of physiotherapy student clinical placements: an exploration of geographical distribution and student performance across settings https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:30394 Thu 19 Apr 2018 15:53:45 AEST ]]> An information theory account of late frontoparietal ERP positivities in cognitive control https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:30408 Thu 19 Apr 2018 14:51:07 AEST ]]> A potential role for N-acetylcysteine in the management of methamphetamine dependence (commentary) https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:27031 Thu 19 Apr 2018 14:42:09 AEST ]]> The pattern of anxiolytic and hypnotic management by Australian general practice trainees https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:30853 Thu 19 Apr 2018 14:34:22 AEST ]]> System change interventions for smoking cessation https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:27028 Thu 19 Apr 2018 14:21:58 AEST ]]> Quality of patient-centred care: medical oncology patients' perceptions and characteristics associated with quality of care https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31055 Thu 19 Apr 2018 14:10:51 AEST ]]> The girl who wanted to go to war: female patriotism and gender construction in Australia's Great War https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32012 Thu 19 Apr 2018 13:49:47 AEST ]]> Appraisal of the motivational ecology: a dynamic view of motivation https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32011 Thu 19 Apr 2018 13:42:50 AEST ]]> The action tendency for learning: characteristics and antecedents in regular lessons https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32010 Thu 19 Apr 2018 13:42:48 AEST ]]> Wanting and liking: components of situated motivation constructs? https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32009 Thu 19 Apr 2018 13:42:47 AEST ]]> Socially creative appraisals of rejection bolster ethnic migrants' subjective well-being https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:30683 N = 80) and found that strong (but not weak) group identifiers who considered the positive views that society holds about their social identity reported higher subjective wellbeing (self-esteem) relative to those who dwelt on rejection.

Most changes occurred in the first 4 weeks, plateaued, and then returned to control values. Systolic function and estimates of filling pressure increased and effective arterial elastance reduced with a PDA, however contractility was unchanged. Wall thickness increased after 4 weeks of increased volume exposure. Conclusion: The preterm PDA induces early and significant remodeling of the left heart.

In saturating GABA, the channels desensitized and stopped working. GABA modulated insulin exocytosis and glucose-stimulated insulin secretion. GABAA receptor currents were enhanced by the benzodiazepine diazepam, the anesthetic propofol and the incretin glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) but not affected by the hypnotic zolpidem. In type 2 diabetes (T2D) islets, single-channel analysis revealed higher GABA affinity of the receptors. The findings reveal unique GABAA receptors signaling in human islets β cells that is GABA concentration-dependent, differentially regulated by drugs, modulates insulin secretion and is altered in T2D.]]> Mon 23 Apr 2018 15:21:48 AEST ]]> Differential responses of avian and mammalian predators to phenotypic variation in Australian Brood Frogs https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32033 Mon 23 Apr 2018 15:21:45 AEST ]]> Mobile breast cancer e-support program for Chinese women with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy (Part 1): qualitative study of women's perceptions https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32034 Mon 23 Apr 2018 15:21:45 AEST ]]> Therapeutic effects of prolonged cannabidiol treatment on psychological symptoms and cognitive function in regular cannabis users: a pragmatic open-label clinical trial https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32031 Mon 23 Apr 2018 14:25:45 AEST ]]> Activation of the absent in melanoma 2 inflammasome in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients leads to the release of pro-fibrotic mediators https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32030 Mon 23 Apr 2018 14:11:49 AEST ]]> Using a counting process method to impute censored follow-up time data https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32029 Mon 23 Apr 2018 14:11:49 AEST ]]> Traditional methods v. new technologies – dilemmas for dietary assessment in large-scale nutrition surveys and studies: a report following an international panel discussion at the 9th International Conference on Diet and Activity Methods (ICDAM9), Brisbane, 3 September 2015 https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32028 Mon 23 Apr 2018 14:11:46 AEST ]]> Impact of scheduling multiple free-play periods in childcare on child moderate-to-vigorous physical activity: a cluster randomised trial https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32026 Mon 23 Apr 2018 13:43:46 AEST ]]> Advances in graph labelings https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32013 Mon 23 Apr 2018 13:04:57 AEST ]]> Prognosis of transient ischaemic attack in modern health care settings - a systematic review and meta-analysis https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32014 Mon 23 Apr 2018 11:55:43 AEST ]]> Preservice teachers' perceptions of how to increase their students' long-term interest in science https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32015 Mon 23 Apr 2018 11:46:35 AEST ]]> An examination of factors associated with tobacco smoking amongst patients presenting with deliberate self-poisoning https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32018 Mon 23 Apr 2018 11:43:05 AEST ]]> The impact of paternal parenting stress on father-child interactions and child behaviour: an investigation of play https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32019 Mon 23 Apr 2018 11:35:50 AEST ]]> Epigenetic regulation of progesterone receptor isoforms in human parturition https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32020 Mon 23 Apr 2018 11:33:41 AEST ]]> The role of breakfast consumption on metabolism, body size and chronic disease risk amongst healthy adults https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32021 Mon 23 Apr 2018 10:37:06 AEST ]]> Smoke-free recovery: development of an online smoking cessation program for orthopaedic trauma patients https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32022 Mon 23 Apr 2018 10:32:48 AEST ]]> Evolutionary wavelet neural networks in data classification and dynamic control https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32023 Mon 23 Apr 2018 10:23:48 AEST ]]> Dynamic capabilities and managerial cognitions https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32025 Mon 23 Apr 2018 10:07:12 AEST ]]> Lives in the asylum record, 1864 to 1910: utilising large data collection for histories of psychiatry and mental health https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32024 Fri 20 Apr 2018 15:36:50 AEST ]]> Advances and future directions of biochar characterization methods and applications https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32017 Fri 20 Apr 2018 14:47:48 AEST ]]> Digital research in architecture: reflecting on the past, analysing the trends, and considering the future https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:32016 Fri 20 Apr 2018 14:19:47 AEST ]]> Multiwall carbon nanotubes increase the microbial community in crude oil contaminated fresh water sediments https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:24007 Fri 20 Apr 2018 11:13:32 AEST ]]>
