Molecular Characterization and Antifungal Susceptibility of Clinical Fusarium Species From Brazil

Conclusion In conclusion, F. keratoplasticum and F. petroliphilum were the most frequent species in this study. Amphotericin B showed lower MICs against Fusarium species whereas the antifungal azoles and the fungicide difenoconazole exhibited higher MICs against FSSC. Ethics Statement Samples were collected during routine patient care and the study was retrospective, therefore it was determined by the local Institutional Review Board of the Hospital de Clínicas, Federal University of Paraná and CAPES that ethical clearance was not indicated. Author Contributions PH, AA-H, FQ-T, and JM designed the study. PH and AA-H performed the experiments and wrote the first draft. RP, MM, MN, FQ-T, GH, and JM analyzed the data and revised the manuscript. All authors contributed to the writing and approved the final manuscript. Funding The work of PH was supported by Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel, but is currently supported by “Instituto Nacional de Ciência e Tecnologia de Inovação em Doenças de Populações Negligenciadas.” Conflict of Interest Statement JM received grants from F2G and Merck. He has been a consultant to Scynexis and Merck and received speaker’s fees from Merck, United Medical, TEVA and Gilead Sciences. The remaining authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential...

Kothapalli, J. Thomas BrennaAbstractBranched chain fatty acids (BCFA) and linear chain/normal odd chain fatty acids (n-OCFA) are major fatty acids in human skin lipids, especially sebaceous gland (SG) wax esters. Skin lipids contain variable amounts of monounsaturated BCFA and n-OCFA, in some reports exceeding over 20% of total fatty acids. Fatty acid desaturase 2 (FADS2) codes for a multifunctional enzyme that catalyz...

This study evaluated outcomes associated with treatment strategies for this nonagenarian population.MethodsTreatment and overall survival for patients 90 years and older with NSCLC in the National Cancer Data Base (2004-2014) were evaluated using logistic regression, the Kaplan-Meier method, and multivariable Cox proportional hazard models.ResultsThe majority (n = 4152, 57.6%) of the 7205 patients 90 years or older with stage I-IV NSCLC did not receive any therapy. For the entire cohort, receiving treatment was associated with significantly better survival when compared with no therapy (5-year survival, 9.3% [95% confidenc...

However, rice flour is not suitable for the manufacture of white salted noodles due to the lack of gluten proteins. With the application of transglutaminase (TGase) to catalyze the formation of covalent cross-linking bonds between protein molecules and with the incorporation of vital gluten and wheat flour to increase the protein content and to mimic the color and sensory characteristics, wh...

Canadian Journal of Zoology, e-First Articles. Recognizing conspecific individuals from other members of the community is important for many interactive behaviors, especially those involved in mate selection. We investigated whether male courtship behavior is triggered by chemical cues left by females on the substrate using the sedentary litter-dwelling scorpion Tityus pusillus Pocock, 1893, which is a small and common species distributed throughout the northeast Atlantic Forest in Brazil. In experiments using 50 pairs, we tested whether males recognize females by detecting sex-specific chemicals on the substrate. All male...

We proposed an all-solid-state porous Ag/AgCl electrode with high stability and a long service life as a marine electric field sensor with the ability to withstand deep sea high pressures while improving the accuracy of electric field measurements for long-period marine EM method engineering projects. Compared with a plate electrode, the all-solid-state porous electro...

Abstract When adults learn new languages, their speech often remains noticeably non-native even after years of exposure. These non-native variants ('accents') can have far-reaching socio-economic consequences for learners. Many factors have been found to contribute to a learners' proficiency in the new language. Here we examine a factor that is outside of the control of the learner, linguistic similarities between the learner's native language (L1) and the new language (Ln). We analyze the (open access) speaking proficiencies of about 50,000 Ln learners of Dutch with 62 diverse L1s. We find that a learner's L1 acc...
