AbstractTo investigate the value of lone anti-Smith antibody (anti-Sm) using Euroimmun line immunoassay (LIA) in a Chinese population. One thousand two hundred eight of 39,766 patients who were analyzed for anti-Sm had positive anti-Sm, and were divided into true group (having both positive Sm and nRNP/Sm bands) and lone group (only having Sm band without nRNP/Sm band). The proportions of clinical diagnosis of autoimmune diseases (AIDs), non-autoimmune diseases (NAIDs), concentration of C3, C4, and rheumatoid factor (RF), positive rate of autoantibodies of antinuclear antibody (ANA) profile, and titer of anti-Sm and ANA in...

Authors: Sain MK, Meena ML Abstract The present study is aimed to investigate the musculoskeletal issues and association of risk-factors with these problems among manual brick kiln workers. A modified Nordic Questionnaire was administered among 376 traditional brick kiln workers to collect data. Logistic regression was used to determine the association between musculoskeletal problems and risk-factors. Majority of workers (76.19%) involved in mould evacuating task reported wrist issues whereas lower back issues were reported by 62.35% of spading task workers. Age was a factor associated with musculoskeletal symptom...

Conclusion: Our work suggests that full analysis using recording speed, sensor kinetics, SNR, and the sensor's stochastically distributed response to action potentials can accurately resolve ISIs much smaller than the fluorescence waveform's rise time in modern calcium imaging experiments. Significance: Such analysis aids not only in future spike detection methods, but also in future experimental design when choosing sensors of neuronal- activity.

People who inject drugs (PWID) have been central to the HIV/AIDS epidemic for over 30 years, with the World Health Organization estimating that about 19% are living with HIV globally (Mathers et al., 2008). In 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) determined that 6% of HIV diagnoses in the U.S. were attributable to injection drug use (IDU) and another 3% to male-to-male sexual contact and IDU (CDC, 2016). The most successful, evidence-based HIV prevention effort targeting PWID is syringe service programs (SSPs), which have significantly reduced the incidence of HIV and HCV infections among PWID over th...
