Contextual valence modulates the effect of choice on incentive processing

Previous research has demonstrated that reward-related neural activity is enhanced for choice relative to no-choice opportunities in the gain context. The current event-related potential study examined whether this modulatory effect of choice can be observed in both the gain and the loss contexts across anticipatory and consummatory phases of incentive processing. Thirty-two...

Synergistic activation of Arg1 gene by retinoic acid and IL-4 involves chromatin remodeling for transcription initiation and elongation coupling

Diagnosis of Extrapulmonary Legionellosis in Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplant Recipients by Direct 16S Ribosomal Ribonucleic Acid Sequencing and Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

Identifying extrapulmonary legionellosis is difficult due to the lack of clinical suspicion and limitations of conventional microbiologic methods. We present a case series of hematopoietic cell transplant recipients with extrapulmonary legionellosis diagnosed via molecular diagnostics: 16S ribosomal ribonucleic acid gene Sanger sequencing and matrix-assisted laser desorption...

National health insurance and life satisfaction in late life: longitudinal findings from a natural experiment in Taiwan

Background To determine whether the availability of National Health Insurance (NHI) is associated with a longitudinal increase in life satisfaction among older Taiwanese adults.

Levamisole-Adulterated Cocaine Nephrotoxicity Ultrastructural Features

Objectives: The issue of levamisole-adulterated cocaine is emerging as a rapidly growing public health concern due to an increasing number of reports describing its role in cutaneous vasculitis and agranulocytosis. Of note, levamisole is recognized as a contaminant in 69% of the cocaine used within the United States.

MoNetFamily: a web server to infer homologous modules and module–module interaction networks in vertebrates

A module is a fundamental unit forming with highly connected proteins and performs a certain kind of biological functions. Modules and module–module interaction (MMI) network are essential for understanding cellular processes and functions. The MoNetFamily web server can identify the modules, homologous modules (called module family) and MMI networks across multiple species for...

Neuropsychological functions and quality of life in survived patients with intracranial germ cell tumors after treatment

Background The notable survival chances of intracranial germ cell tumors (icGCTs) lead to a rising concern over long-term neurocognitive outcome. Yet, prior evidence related to this issue fails to provide a comprehensive examination of the effects of tumor location and radiotherapy. We attempt to explore their impacts on the neuropsychological functions and life quality in...

Nucleic acid assay system for tier II laboratories and moderately complex clinics to detect HIV in low-resource settings

There is a clear need for an instrument-free molecular diagnostic system for detecting human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) RNA or DNA that can be used in developing countries. Such a test could be used for early diagnosis of HIV-1 infection during infancy and could serve as a surrogate end point for vaccine trials. We developed the IsoAmp HIV-1 assay (BioHelix Corporation...

Characterization of Emergent HIV Resistance in Treatment-Naive Subjects Enrolled in a Vicriviroc Phase 2 Trial

Background. Vicriviroc is a C-C motif chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5) antagonist that is in clinical development for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection. This study explored the molecular basis for the development of phenotypically resistant virus. Method. HIV-1 RNA from treatment-naive subjects who experienced virological failure in a phase 2...
