Abstract BACKGROUND: To date, no studies have been published that have assessed the optimal position of sling immobilization after anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty for glenohumeral osteoarthritis. METHODS: Thirty-six patients undergoing anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty for osteoarthritis were randomized to a neutral rotation sling versus an internal rotation sling. The primary outcomes assessed included the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand score; Western Ontario Osteoarthritis of the Shoulder score; Single Assessment Numeric Evaluation score; visual analog scale (VAS) scores for pain and sat...

CONCLUSION:: (1) Thermotherapy on the vascular access reduced the pain caused by needle cannulation in our patients, without complications related to vascular access. (2) We will consider its clinical application in those painful vascular access cannulations at our hemodialysis unit. (3) Further studies are required to assess other potential beneficial effects added to thermotherapy in vascular access cannulation procedure. PMID: 30442083 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Hopkins, Lixian Zhu, Pengcheng Dong, Rongrong Liang, Xin LuoAbstractThe aim of this study was to investigate the shelf-life and microbial community dynamics of super-chilled vacuum-packaged beef striploins imported from Australia to China after approximately five weeks of shipping time and an additional 15 weeks of storage at −1 °C ± 0.5 °C. Data analysis using a mixed model (REML) with time as the fixed effect and portion as a random effect, showed th...

If non-operative treatments fail, then operative ankle stabilization may be required to improve pain and function. Operative options include both anatomic repair and reconstruction techniques. Anatomic repair techniques utilize pre-existing ligament remnants that are either reattached or tighte...

In this study, the transcriptomic profiles of SHVV-infected and mock-infected SSN-1 cells (derived from striped snakehead, Channa striatus) at 3 and 24 h (h) post of infection (poi) were obtained using high-throughput sequencing technique. A total of 93,372 unigenes were obtained. The differently expressed genes (DEGs) of SSN-1 cells upon SHVV infection were thereby identified, including 3668 and 3536 DEGs at 3 and 24 h poi, respectively. These DEGs were involved in many pathways of viral pathogenesis, including retinoic acid-inducible gene I (RIG-I) like receptors pathway, Toll-like receptor signaling pathway, NF-...

In this study, a novel P450 gene, CYP6FV12, was cloned from B. odoriphaga. The full-length cDNA sequence of CYP6FV12 is 2520 bp long and its open reading frame (ORF) encodes 519 amino acids. Quantitative real-time PCR showed that the highest expression of CYP6FV12 was observed in fourth-instar larvae, which is 154.32-fold higher than that of eggs. Highest expression of CYP6FV12 was observed in the midgut, followed by fat body, which was 13.67 and 5.42-fold higher than that in cuticle, respectively. The expression of CYP6FV12 was significantly up-regulated in B. odoriphaga larvae after exposed to imidacloprid at the conce...

Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic and spectrometric data (1D and 2D NMR, IR, and HRESIMS). The isolated compounds exhibited significant inhibition of nitric oxide production in...
