Evidence suggests that small-scale food animal producers often employ the use of antimicrobials to improve the survival and growth of their animals, and that this practice leads to the development of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) that can potentially spread to humans. The nature of human–animal interactions in small-scale food animal production systems, generally practiced in and around the home, likely augments spillover events of AMR into the community on a scale that is currently unrecognized and deserves greater attention. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP2116 Received: 27 April 2017 Revised: 05 September 2017 Accepted: 14 September 2017 Published: 16 ...

Direct oral anticoagulant (DOACs) have been approved in different prothrombotic conditions and have numerous advantages compared to VKAs. Whether DOACs can be used for secondary prophylaxis in APS is an open question. Data from the TRAPS randomized controlled Trial, meta-analy...

SerovAbstractThe human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines, ICGi009-A, ICGi009-B, ICGi013-A and ICGi013-B, were generated from skin fibroblasts of two siblings with intellectual disability. Both patients were carriers of CNTN6 gene microdeletion(Kashevarova et al., 2014). iPSC lines have normal karyotype, express pluripotency markers, are able to differentiate in vitro ...

Non-integrating episomal vectors containing OCT4, SOX2, KLF4, BCL-XL and MYC were used for reprogramming. The established iPSC line showed normal karyotype, ...

Miranda, Eva Liebau, Darrell J. Irvine, Gerhard WunderlichAbstractLipid particles for drug delivery can be modified to create multilayer vesicles with higher stability and improved cargo interaction. Here, we used lipids capable of forming hydrogen bonds instead of covalent bonds and designed stable vesicles-inside-vesicles with a high capacity of entrapping antimalarial drugs such as chloroquine (hydrophilic) and Artemisinin (lipophi...

The objectives of this study were to determine, in a real-life setting, the global effectiveness of an emulsion with antiseborrheic, keratolytic and anti-Propionibacterium acnes activities as an adjunct to anti-acne therapy, and to evaluate the effect of the product on acne severity, noninflammatory and inflammatory lesions, hyperseborrhea, skin irritation and patient quality of life (QoL). Tolerance of the product was also assessed. Patients and methods: This international observational study involved 3960 patients aged 12 years and over with mild-to-moderate acne. The conventional acne prescriptions for these patient...

Conclusion: After exposure to primary physical or mental stressor, hair follicles are stimulated to enter prematurely into telogen and shed out. In individuals with Taq1 and Cdx1 polymorphisms, the disease persists as a result of prevention of new anagen growth and inhibition of hair follicle stem cell proliferation. PMID: 31632122 [PubMed]

NagarajanAbstractIn the past few years, the occurrence of pharmaceutical wastes into the environment increases in day-to-day and poses negative risks to the living organisms. In this work, we developed novel biochar supported copper tungstate nanocomposites (Bio-CuWO4 NCs) and utilized as a visible light active photocatalyst for the degradation of ciprofloxacin (CF) drug and electrocatalyst for the oxidation of methanol. The Bio-CuWO4 NCs were synthesi...

Authors: De Lima ACB, Brondízio E, Nardoto GB, Do Nascimento ACS Abstract Nutrition transition theory describes a progressive substitution of local staples for industrialized processed foods in local diets, a process documented diversely across world regions, and increasingly observed in rural areas of the global south. Here we examine the role of conditional cash transfer programs, in particular the emblematic Brazilian Bolsa Família (BFP), in driving nutritional transition in rural areas of the Amazon. Based on ethnographic research with both participating and nonparticipating women in the Aman&atil...
