CONCLUSIONS: The findings of this review suggest that in settings with limited resources, current guideline recommendations to provide enhanced adherence counselling can result in resuppression of a substantial number of these patients, avoiding unnecessary drug regimen changes. Appropriate action on viral load results is limited across a range of settings, highlighting the importance of viral load cascade analyses to identify gaps and focus quality improvement to ensure that action is taken on the results of viral load testing.

Publication date: Available online 20 November 2019Source: Neuroscience LettersAuthor(s): Sathiya Sekar, Changiz TaghibiglouAbstractGlyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) has been well documented in glycolytic pathway. Independent of this, it has various other functions including stimulator of programmed cell death. Reports suggest that glutamate receptor AMPA type-2 subunit (GluA2) forms protein complex with GAPDH and internalized during excitotoxicity. Further, nuclear accumulation of GluA2 and GAPDH have been studied in neurological disorders like epilepsy and multiple sclerosis, and disruption of this complex...

SimpsonFood enzymes include enzymes deliberately added to foods as bioprocessing aids, and naturally occurring endogenous types in food materials that can influence overall food product quality. Advances in food enzyme research are providing deeper insights into enzyme function and enabling the development of novel improved food enzymes using combinations of in silico methods and conventional experimental methods. Commonly-used in silico techniques such as multiple sequence alignmen...
Conclusion: There were no significant and consistent audiometric results to reflect patient's satisfaction with the hearing aid. Therefore, when analyzing the hearing aid-fitting outcome, both the objective audiometric tests and subjective questionnaire should be performed together for validating hearing aid performance.
