Long noncoding RNA MALAT1 regulates sepsis in patients with burns by modulating miR‑214 with TLR5. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Mar 14;: Authors: Gao F, Chen R, Xi Y, Zhao Q, Gao H Abstract The present study aimed to identify the involvement of the dysregulation of the metastasis‑associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript‑1 (MALAT1)/microRNA (miR)‑214/Toll‑like receptor (TLR)5 signaling pathway in the development of post‑burn sepsis. THP‑1 cells were used in the present study, in addition to 8‑10 week‑old mice. ELISA analysis was performed to examine the expression levels of inflammation‑a...

The objective of this report was to summarize current knowledge of CC, squamous intraepithelial lesions, and human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in non-HIV immunocompromised women to determine best practices for CC surveillance in this population and provide recommendations for screening. We evaluated those with solid organ transplant, hematopoietic stem cell transplant, and a number of autoimmune diseases. A panel of health care professionals involved in CC research and care was assembled to review and discuss existing literature on the subject and come to conclusions about screening based on available evidence and expe...

Chem. Commun., 2019, Advance Article DOI: 10.1039/C9CC01718F, CommunicationEuan B. McLean, Vincent Gauchot, Sebastian Brunen, David J. Burns, Ai-Lan Lee The use of copper catalysis with visible light photoredox catalysis in a cooperative fashion has recently emerged as a versatile means of developing new C –C bond forming reactions. In this work, dual copper and photoredox catalysis is exploited to effect C(sp2) –C(sp3) cross-couplings between aryl boronic acids and benzyl bromides.

For most of us, springtime marks the return of life to a dreary landscape, bringing birdsong, trees in bud, and daffodils in bloom. But if you work for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the coming of spring means the return of nasty diseases spread by ticks and mosquitoes. The killjoys at CDC celebrated the end of winter with a bummer of a paper showing that infections spread by ticks doubled in the United States from 2004 to 2016. (Tick populations have exploded in recent decades, perhaps due to climate change and loss of biodiversity.) Lyme disease The most common infection spread by ticks in the US i...
