Circulating leptin and adiponectin are associated with insulin resistance in healthy postmenopausal women with hot flashes

Introduction Hot flashes have been postulated to be linked to the development of metabolic disorders. This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between hot flashes, adipocyte-derived hormones, and insulin resistance in healthy, non-obese postmenopausal women. Participants and design In this cross-sectional study, a total of 151 women aged 45–60 years were stratified into one of ...

SPH-based numerical modeling for the post-failure behavior of the landslides triggered by the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake

Background The 2016 Kumamoto earthquake triggered many fast landslides in Kyushu Region, Japan, which caused great damages and increased difficulty of rescue after the earthquake. The post-failure behavior analysis of the earthquake-triggered landslides is of great importance to determine the hazardous areas and estimate the extent of damage. Results The features of the landslides ...

Associations of Self-Reported Sleep Quality with Circulating Interferon Gamma-Inducible Protein 10, Interleukin 6, and High-Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein in Healthy Menopausal Women

Introduction Sleep disturbance is very common in menopausal women and poor sleep quality has been linked to systemic inflammation. However, the impact of poor sleep quality on health outcomes of menopausal women remains unclear. This study evaluated the relationships between sleep quality and inflammation in menopausal women. Participants and design This cross-sectional study ...

Construction and sequencing of an infectious clone of the goose embryo-adapted Muscovy duck parvovirus vaccine strain FZ91-30

Background Muscovy duck parvovirus (MDPV) is the etiological agent of Muscovy duckling parvoviral disease, which is characterized by diarrhea, locomotive dysfunction, stunting, and death in young ducklings, and causes substantial economic losses in the Muscovy duck industry worldwide. FZ91-30 is an attenuated vaccine strain that is safe and immunogenic to ducklings, but the genomic ...

Quantitative Analysis of Single and Mix Food Antiseptics Basing on SERS Spectra with PLSR Method

Usage and dosage of food antiseptics are very concerned due to their decisive influence in food safety. Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) effect was employed in this research to realize trace potassium sorbate (PS) and sodium benzoate (SB) detection. HfO2 ultrathin film-coated Ag NR array was fabricated as SERS substrate. Protected by HfO2 film, the SERS substrate possesses ...

Preparation of odour removal catalysts with self-regeneration capability

Odours remain at the top of air pollution complaints both indoor and outdoor, which can come from sewage, rotten food, and human digestions. Activated carbon has been used to absorb the odour materials, but its physical absorption can easily be saturated and could be a potential pollution source when less odour compounds exist in the surrounding environment. Here, for the first ...

Different clinical characteristics and treatment strategies for patients with localized sinonasal diffuse large B cell lymphoma and extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma

The difference in clinical features and treatment outcomes between localized sinonasal diffuse large B cell lymphoma (SN-DLBCL) and sinonasal extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma (SN-ENKTL) is unclear. Therefore, we analyzed a total of 47 patients with localized SN-DLBCL and 211 patients with localized SN-ENKTL. The age distribution for these two subtypes is very distinct and the B ...

A Fluorescence-Based Genetic Screen to Study Retinal Degeneration in Drosophila

The Drosophila visual system has been proved to be a powerful genetic model to study eye disease such as retinal degeneration. Here, we describe a genetic method termed “Rh1::GFP ey-flp/hid” that is based on the fluorescence of GFP-tagged major rhodopsin Rh1 in the eyes of living flies and can be used to monitor the integrity of photoreceptor cells. Through combination of this ...

Comparative Transcriptomic Study of Muscle Provides New Insights into the Growth Superiority of a Novel Grouper Hybrid

Grouper (Epinephelus spp.) is a group of fish species with great economic importance in Asian countries. A novel hybrid grouper, generated by us and called the Hulong grouper (Hyb), has better growth performance than its parents, E. fuscoguttatus (Efu, ♀) and E. lanceolatus (Ela, ♂). We previously reported that the GH/IGF (growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor) system in the ...

Pinhole Effect on the Melting Behavior of Ag@Al2O3 SERS Substrates

High-temperature surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) sensing is significant for practical detections, and pinhole-containing (PC) metal@oxide structures possessing both enhanced thermal stability and superior SERS sensitivity are served as promising SERS sensors at extreme sensing conditions. Through tuning the Al2O3 precursors’ exposure time during atomic layer deposition ...

Origin of dolomite in the Middle Ordovician peritidal platform carbonates in the northern Ordos Basin, western China

The carbonates in the Middle Ordovician Ma 5 5 submember of the Majiagou Formation in the northern Ordos Basin are partially to completely dolomitized. Two types of replacive dolomite are distinguished: (1) type 1 dolomite, which is primarily characterized by microcrystalline (<30 µm), euhedral to subhedral dolomite crystals, and is generally laminated and associated with ...

Comparison of gram-negative and gram-positive hematogenous pyogenic spondylodiscitis: clinical characteristics and outcomes of treatment

Background To the best of our knowledge, no study has compared gram-negative bacillary hematogenous pyogenic spondylodiscitis (GNB-HPS) with gram-positive coccal hematogenous pyogenic spondylodiscitis (GPC-HPS) regarding their clinical characteristics and outcomes. Methods From January 2003 to January 2013, 54 patients who underwent combined antibiotic and surgical therapy in the ...

Fully Automated Whole-Head Segmentation with Improved Smoothness and Continuity, with Theory Reviewed

Individualized current-flow models are needed for precise targeting of brain structures using transcranial electrical or magnetic stimulation (TES/TMS). The same is true for current-source reconstruction in electroencephalography and magnetoencephalography (EEG/MEG). The first step in generating such models is to obtain an accurate segmentation of individual head anatomy, including ...

Concentric Magnetic Structures for Magnetophoretic Bead Collection, Cell Trapping and Analysis of Cell Morphological Changes Caused by Local Magnetic Forces

Concentric magnetic structures (ring and square) with domain wall (DW) pinning geometry are designed for biological manipulation. Magnetic beads collection was firstly demonstrated to analyse the local magnetic field generated by DWs and the effective regions to capture magnetic targets of size 1 μm. Primary mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) are magnetically labeled by ...
