In this study, we found that the PPL length of Korean SG isolates varied from 11 to 21 prolines and was longer than that of a live vaccine strain, SG 9R (9 prolines). According to growth competition in chickens, the growth of an SG isolate with a PPL length of 17 prolines exceeded that of an SG isolate with a PPL length of 15 prolines. We investigated the pseudogenes of the field isolates, SG 9R and reference strains in GenBank by resequencing and comparative genomics. The pseudogene profiles of the field isolates were notably different from those of the foreign SG strains, and they were subdivided into 7 pseudogene subgro...

Publication date: Available online 25 May 2019Source: Preventive Veterinary MedicineAuthor(s): Ricardo Lopes, Amanda Brinch Kruse, Liza Rosenbaum Nielsen, Telmo Pina Nunes, Lis AlbanAbstractIn modern livestock farming, there is an increasing understanding that antimicrobial (AM) consumption must be kept low – preferably without compromising animal welfare or productivity. This requires an understanding of the relationship between AM use, productivity, biosecurity, vaccination and herd demographics. To obtain this, we undertook an Additive Bayesian Network analysis using data from 2014-15, covering 157 Danish sow herd...

Authors: Vigna L, Morelli F, Agnelli GM, Napolitano F, Ratto D, Occhinegro A, Di Iorio C, Savino E, Girometta C, Brandalise F, Rossi P Abstract Epidemiological data indicate that subjects affected by obesity have an increased risk of developing mood disorders. The relationship between obesity and mood disorders is bidirectional. We assessed whether a Hericium erinaceus treatment improved depression, anxiety, sleep, and binge eating disorders after 8 weeks of supplementation in subjects affected by overweight or obesity under a low calorie diet regimen. Looking for a possible clinical biomarker, we assessed the seru...

I'm a PGY-3 who has been getting a lot of postpartum patients recently whose ob/gyn placed them on disability for postpartum depression or anxiety, and then they come to me asking for their disability to be extended. Some of them have therapists, but apparently only an MD can extend disability. I have very mixed feelings about this, specifically because while I don't think maternity leave in this country is long enough, and some of them are quite symptomatic, I don't think that not going to...

This study aimed to explore the effect of winter temperatures on the risk factors, etiology, coagulation, and degree of neurological impairment in patients with ischemic stroke using temperature and rainfall data from the Guangzhou Meteorological Bureau during the winter months of December, January, and February. MATERIAL AND METHODS We divided 112 patients with ischemic stroke into low-temperature and non-low-temperature groups. The low-temperature group experienced an average daily winter temperature of 13°C on admission. Neurological deficits were scored and monitored using the National Institutes of Health Stroke S...

Publication date: 1 September 2019Source: Personality and Individual Differences, Volume 147Author(s): Nicole Barbaro, Brian B. Boutwell, Todd K. ShackelfordAbstractAdult attachment anxiety shows consistent and robust associations with intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetration and IPV victimization. Prior research, however, has not investigated whether this association would be robust to genetic covariation between the traits of interest. We expand the limited research regarding genetic influences on IPV by examining the extent to which accounting for potential genetic covariation between IPV and attachment anxiety can ...
