Differentiation of Bacillus thuringiensis From Bacilluscereus Group Using a Unique Marker Based on Real-Time PCR
Conclusion Since B. cereus group are highly similar in biochemical as well as genetic profiles, a new biomarker was developed for identifying and distinguishing B. thuringiensis from the closely related group. The performance of XRE was compared with cry2 gene and artificially contaminated samples were also tested. Compared with cry2, XRE gene was observed to be efficiently accurate in the identification of B. thuringiensis. Further, the developed real-time PCR using XRE successfully identified B. thuringiensis and it could be used to quantify cell numbers with the generated standard curve. Author Contributions The experiments were conceived and designed by SW, RC, YG-J, and DH-O. SW, BJ-P, FF, MC, and DS-P performed the experiments. BJ-P and SH-K discussed the experiments and results. SW and RC wrote the manuscript.

ConclusionOverall, these guidelines provide consistent recommendations on who should receive breast reconstruction education, who is a candidate for postmastectomy breast reconstruction, and the appropriate timing of reconstruction and extent of mastectomy. Future updates from all should focus on expanding to include alloplastic and autologous forms of reconstruction and should include a broad scope of relevant questions.
CONCLUSIONS: The GSDS-26 is a preliminary validated multidimensional scale for better identifying depression in men and may be suitable for routine use after further validation. PMID: 31952089 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The positive evaluation and the potential for improvements of the PNP program can support its advancement (e. g. enrolment, billing). PMID: 31952088 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Shame needs to be viewed in context of gender roles, status, and their interaction. Future studies should investigate the influence of mental health literacy. PMID: 31952086 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: In the population studied mental illness alone was not a sufficient predictor for suicide. Rather, an interaction between mental illness, psychosocial crisis and other factors may explain and predict suicides. Suicide prevention should better address the needs of relatives and family doctors and offer specific low-threshold services. PMID: 31952085 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Psychotherapeutic work in rural areas should be better incentivized. Interventions to reduce east-west inequalities in the density of service provision seem to be necessary. PMID: 31952084 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Elements of the guideline should be evaluated in relation to the preferred treatment method. Aspects related to the psychotherapeutic work with patients seem to be especially significant. PMID: 31952083 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
