Composites were fabricated with varied (0, 1, 2, 3 and 5) weight percent of SiC content via stir casting method. Scanning electronic microscope test had confirmed the uniform distribution of reinforced particles. It was seen that the density of Al 6061/SiC composite was improved with the reinforcement of SiC...

Discussion Pulmonary embolism (PE) is potentially life-threatening but fortunately rare event especially in the pediatric population. It was first described in children in 1861. PE is likely underreported because of minimal or non-specific clinical symptoms. The incidence is estimated at 0.05-4.2% with the 4.2% based on autopsy reports. It is probably also increasing as more central venous catheters (CVC) are used, and more children are surviving previously poor prognostic diseases. There is a bimodal distribution with cases

Fetal bovine serum (FBS) has long been the gold standard supplement, but its use is being questioned mainly due to ethical and safety issues. The use of platelet lysate (PL) as substitute of FBS has been proposed but ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPeople with diabetes are at a higher risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) compared with those without diabetes. Though aspirin has been shown to have an overall net clinical benefit when used for secondary prevention of ASCVD in people with and without diabetes, the evidence for primary prevention, especially in those with diabetes, remains inconsistent. In this article, we review the latest studies examining the risks and benefits of aspirin use for primary prevention of ASCVD in adults with diabetes, discuss key aspects in assessing the risk-benefit ratio of aspirin use for prim...

We report a case of invasive mucormycosis in 52 year-old woman. CT-scan and magnetic resonance imaging found a partial right sinus thrombosis associated with homolateral ethmoidal and maxillary sinusitis with submucosal inflammation. Histopathological examination of excised tissue was positive for mucormycosis. Our patient was treated by surgical debridement and a combination of amphotericin B and caspofungin, with a good outcome.

The aim of our study was to profile the expression, splice variants (SV) and novel insertion/deletion (indel) of Hsd17b3 in boar. Quantitative analysis showed that the expression level of Hsd17b3 in the testis was significa...
