Etiology of Central Nervous System Infections in a Rural Area of Nepal Using Molecular Approaches.

In conclusion, the etiology could not be found in 77% of the samples, indicating that the commercial PCR panels used are not suitable in this setting. Future studies on the etiology of CNS infections in Nepal could include metagenomic techniques. PMID: 31162021 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

I had the distinct pleasure working with family physician colleagues in Sweden recently. It was a similar experience to a trip I made to Britain about  five years ago that I also wrote about. I got to spend some time watching one of my colleagues care for her patients in her surgery (they use the same description […]Find jobs at  Careers by KevinMD.com.  Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now.  Learn more.

Publication date: Available online 13 July 2019Source: Antiviral ResearchAuthor(s): Atsushi Yamanaka, Eiji KonishiAbstractDengue is one of the most important mosquito-borne viral diseases. Over half of the world's population is living in dengue endemic countries, where 100 million cases are estimated to occur annually. Although one dengue vaccine is currently available commercially, unfortunately its safety and efficacy has not been demonstrated for seronegative populations. Therefore, other vaccine candidates as well as antivirals are urgently required to control dengue diseases. To contribute to the development of preven...

Publication date: Available online 13 July 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators A: PhysicalAuthor(s): Vahid Moradi, Mohsen Akbari, Peter WildAbstractA fluorescence-based pH sensor based on a microfluidic chip is described. The indicator dye, 8-hydroxypyrene- 1,3,6-trisulfonic acid trisodium salt (HPTS) and the test solution are mixed in the microfluidic chip. Light fluorescing from this mixture is collected by a multi-mode optical fibre and its intensity is measured with a photodiode. The sensor is calibrated using a range of HPTS concentrations The highest sensitivity is achieved for a 500 mg L-1 solution of HP...

However, the molecular mechanisms of NCED5 that modulate plant development and abiotic stress tolerance are still unclear, particular in rice. Here, we demonstrate that a rice NCED gene, OsNCED5, was expressed in all tissues we tested, and was induced by exposure to salt stre...
