Human papillomavirus vaccination of adult women and risk of autoimmune and neurological diseases

ConclusionUnmasking of conditions at vaccination visits is a plausible explanation for the increased risk associated with qHPV in this study because coeliac disease is underdiagnosed in Scandinavian populations. In conclusion, our study of serious adverse event rates in qHPV‐vaccinated and qHPV‐unvaccinated adult women 18–44 years of age did not raise any safety issues of concern.

Vasileiou, M. de las HerasABSTRACTVaccination programs against Ovine Respiratory Complex (ORC) in lambs should be accompanied by non-specific preventive measure, e.g., establishment of proper management and husbandry conditions. Implementing a vaccination plan against ORC requires: involvement of all farm staff, recording data, a positive cost:benefit analysis and continuous monitoring over time. Licensed vaccines for sheep are only against Mannheimia haemoly...

WilsonAbstractLawsonia intracellularis is an obligate intracellular microorganism and the causative agent of porcine proliferative enteropathy. Due to its obligate intracellular nature, characterization of antigens and proteins involved in host-pathogen interaction and immune recognition have been difficult to achieve using conventional microbiological techniques. In this work, we used 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis coupled with Western-immuno...

This study aimed to investigate risk factors for canine obesity in adult companion dogs across Zealand, Denmark.Client-owned dogs (>2 years of age and without chronic illness) were recruited and examined at eight companion animal veterinary practices in areas with varying socio-economic characteristics. The body condition score (BCS) of the dogs was examined by two investigators based on a 9-point scoring scheme. Dog owners answered a questionnaire that had prompts regarding: 1) dog characteristics, including neuter status, 2) owner characteristics, 3) feeding and exercise practices and 4) the owners’ attachment t...

Authors: Mao J, Wu H, Liu C, Zhu C, Lao J, Chen Y, Tao J, Zhang Y, Shen L Abstract Purpose: To observe the changes in metamorphopsia, visual acuity, and central macular thickness (CMT) in patients undergoing vitrectomy for idiopathic epiretinal membranes (iERM); all of which were preoperatively stratified into 4 stages according to the anatomical structure of the macula seen on the optical coherence tomography (OCT) b-scan images. Methods: A total of 108 eyes of 106 patients were included. We evaluated and classified the severity of each preoperative ERM based on OCT. Changes in the best-corrected visual acuity...

In this work, thermoresponsive poly (N-isopropylacrylamide-N-methylolacrylamide-acrylamide) (PNIPAm-NMA-Am) was successfully synthesised via radical polymerisation, as confirmed by proton nuclear magnetic resonance and fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. PNIPAm-NMA-Am was electrospun into nanofibres, allowing its use as a drug carrier after simple thermal treatment. Thermogravi...

This study comprehensively optimised the parameters for electrospinning a polyetherimide (PEI) and polyacrylonitrile (PAN) blend to obtain highly aligned (∼93%) nanofibres (NFs) mats with an average diameter of ∼150 nm. The formation of smooth, constant, and bead-free NFs was observed as the concentration of the PAN solution hosted in the PEI solution increased beyond 50%. To reduce the NFs diameters, the following optimised parameters were used: 20% humidity (ranges from 20%-60%), 19 kV applied voltage (ranges from 13-24 kV), 0.6 mL/h flow rate (ranges from 0.3-1.5 mL/h), 150 mm of needle-tip-to-collector distance...

In this study, an ultrasound treatment was employed to facilitate complete dissolution of maize starch in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). The effect of ultrasound time and amount of DMSO on the dissolution of maize starch was studied. The ultrasound-assisted DMSO dissolution method for the maize starch was evaluated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and asymmetrical flow field-flow fractionation (AF4). Moreover, the molar mass and size distributions, and the apparent density of the maize starch sample were characterized by AF4 coupled with multi-angle light scattering (MALS) and differential refractive index (dRI) dete...
