This study examined for the first time the effect on malolactic fermentation of an autochthonous Oenococcus oeni PG-16, which was isolated following alcohol fermentation of red-fleshed apple cider. The chemical composition and volatile characteristics of red-fleshed apple ciders produced via simultaneous and sequential inoculation of yeast with either PG-16 or a commercial O. oeni 1 strain were examined. The fermentations were monitored by measuring cell viability and organic acid metabolism. Irrespective of the inoculation mode, malic acid and citric acid were rapidly degraded in the presence of PG-16 during alcoholic fer...

Authors: Kakehashi S, Kamakura T, Aiba T, Kusano K Abstract We herein report a 47-year-old man with relapsing polychondritis who developed monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT). His electrocardiogram in sinus rhythm showed a coved-type pattern, and there was no evidence of structural cardiac disease; therefore, he was diagnosed with Brugada syndrome. An electrophysiological study revealed a prolonged His-ventricular interval at the baseline. Two forms of VT were induced, which were shown to be bundle branch reentrant VT. A diagnosis of Brugada syndrome should not be ruled out in patients with monomorphic VTs, es...

Authors: Chiba Y, Fukushima A, Nakao M, Kobayashi Y, Ishigaki T, Tenma T, Kamiya K, Shingu Y, Ooka T, Matsui Y, Anzai T Abstract A 23-year-old man had progressive muscle weakness and Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD) due to a LMNA (lamin A/C) mutation. Congestive heart failure diagnosed at 19 years of age. Maximal drug treatment/cardiac resynchronization failed to improve the cardiac function. He was therefore hospitalized due to heart failure. Despite extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, he developed severe right heart dysfunction and died (multiple organ failure). A cardiac lesion's presence determines the...

RibeiroAbstractThe Taylor dispersion technique has been used for measuring the tracer diffusion coefficients, D0Tracer, for poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) in aqueous systems containing two specific electrolytes (i.e., NaCl and Na2SO4) at three concentrations (0.020, 0.050 and 0.10 mol dm−3), and at 25 °C. The selection of these salts has been based on the Hofmeister series of cations and anions, which order the ions with ...

We have recently shown the beneficial effects of local brain hypothermia after late thrombolysis. Herein, we investigated whether transient whole-body hypothermia was neuroprotective and could prevent the side effects of late tPA therapy at 5.5 h after embolic stroke. After induction of stroke, male rats were randomly assigned into four g...

Generally, the skin elasticity impedes DMNs to fully insert into skin thus optimized fabrication methods are needed to improve delivery efficiency. Here, we investigated the formulations of DMNs as the main influencing factors during the microneedle preparation process. Through the selection of the matrix materials...

Since the reacting activity of isocyanate groups in WPU prepolymer with -NH2 was much faster than that with -OH, hydroxyl groups could be maintained in ...

Authors: Liu C, Jiang D, Jin T, Chen C, Shi R, Liu L, Mao J, Gu L, Xu L, Meng A Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the influence of body posture change on the peripherally inserted central catheter tip position in Chinese cancer patients. METHODS: A prospective observational trial was conducted in a tertiary cancer hospital from August to September 2018. After the insertion of peripherally inserted central catheter, chest X-ray films were taken to check the catheter tip in the upright and supine positions, respectively. The distance from the carina to the catheter tip was separately measured on both chest films by n...
