Therapy Options for Infants with Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection - Implications for Setting Up Neonatal Screening Programs.

CONCLUSIONS: Antiviral treatment of neonates with congenital CMV infection and few symptoms including isolated hearing loss remains controversial. A generally accepted therapy, however, is pivotal before introducing universal or targeted screening for congenital CMV infection. PMID: 31426118 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 21 September 2019Source: Food Quality and PreferenceAuthor(s): Christina Hartmann, Michael SiegristAbstractThe enjoyment of meat and simultaneous disapproval of hurting animals create an ambivalent relationship with meat consumption. Meat-eating justification strategies are a means of coping with such cognitive dissonance. We aimed to determine whether the use of such justification strategies to defend meat consumption is linked to the moral evaluation of diverse free-range, wild and conventional meat production systems (e.g. free-range chicken, wild fish and veal from conventional produc...

Their structures were determined via extensive spectroscopic analyses. Gauge-independent atomic orbital (GIAO) NMR chemical shift calculations, combined with the advanced statistical method DP4+ were employe...

Publication date: Available online 20 September 2019Source: Social NetworksAuthor(s): Travis G. Tatum, Thomas U. GrundAbstractPrevious research on bullying implicitly assumes that individuals agree on who bullies whom and whom is bullied by who. We analyse dual-perspective networks from 96 school-classes in Germany, where adolescents were asked both whom they bully (confession network) and who bullies them (accusation network). Drawing from goal framing theory we explicitly examine discrepancies in the subjective perception of bullying, demonstrating that the majority of accusations have no corresponding confessions, and v...

[Mediation of data literacy in curricular education in otorhinolaryngology: watch and wait or anticipatory obedience?] HNO. 2019 Sep 19;: Authors: Offergeld C, Neudert M, Emerich M, Schmidt T, Kuhn S, Giesler M Abstract A comprehensive societal change is currently taking place, which also includes the medical field. The often heard "digital transformation" is also fundamentally transforming the health care system familiar to us, including the medical schools. While the Masterplan 2020 includes changes in the medical school structure and in the curricular content, it unfortunately focuses...

CONCLUSION: The results demonstrated the nationwide acceptance of the ORL logbook by lecturers and students. The amount of critical learning targets which will have to be changed is moderate. This evaluation confirmed the relevance and balance of the ORL logbook content in the practical year training and the possibility of use independent of the location of ORL departments.

ian Klöhn Prion diseases are fatal neurodegenerative diseases that affect humans and animals. Prion strains, conformational variants of misfolded prion proteins, are associated with distinct clinical and pathological phenotypes. Host-strain interactions result in the selective damage of distinct brain areas and they are responsible for strain selection and/or adaptation, but the underlying molecular mechanisms are unknown. Prion strains can be distinguished by their cell tropism in vivo and in vitro, which suggests that susceptibility to distinct prion strains is determined by cellular factors. The neuroblastoma c...

ConclusionTaken together, this study clearly demonstrated that the anti-Fenton activity of DFO inhibited apoptosis and caused blockade in ALP or autophagy dysfunction in SH-SY5Y cell lines. These outcomes further suggest that DFO provides neuroprotection by inhibiting apoptosis and inducing the progression of Autophagy- lysosomal pathway (ALP).Graphical abstract
