High prevalence of norovirus GII.P16/GII.2 and chicken anemia virus in two acute gastroenteritis outbreaks in Huzhou, China.

High prevalence of norovirus GII.P16/GII.2 and chicken anemia virus in two acute gastroenteritis outbreaks in Huzhou, China. Acta Virol. 2019;63(3):328-332 Authors: Li Y, Zhang P, Wu X, Wen D, Ji L, Chen L, Liu G, Fu X, Zhang J, Zhang C, Han J Abstract Acute gastroenteritis (AGE) is one of the most frequently occuring illnesses in children and adults worldwide. In February 2017, two AGE outbreaks occurred in two adjacent schools in Huzhou city, Zhenjiang province of China. We detected high percentages of recombinant norovirus GII.P16/GII.2 in one school and chicken anemia virus (CAV) in another school using next generation sequencing (NGS) and specific PCR. The results highlight the importance of continuous surveillance of GII.P16/GII.2, and suggest the need of further studies on whether CAV causes AGE. Keywords: acute gastroenteritis; norovirus; chicken anemia virus; Huzhou; School. PMID: 31507200 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, seven solutions, i.e., GPS-only (G), GLONASS-only (R), BDS-only (C), GPS+BDS (GC), GPS+ GLONASS (GR), GLONASS+BDS (RC), GPS+GLONASS+BDS (GRC), are used to test the regional ionosphere modeling over the experimental area. Moreover, the performances of them using single-frequency precise point positioning (SF-PPP) method are presented. The experimental results indicate that BDS has the same ionospheric monitoring capability as GPS and GLONASS. Meanwhile, multi-GNSS observations can significantly improve the accuracy of the regional ionospheric models compared with that of GPS-only or GLONASS-only or BDS-only, ...

In this study, we investigated a Chinese medicine (CM) formulation named NeuroDefend (ND), for reducing amyloid β (Aβ) and tau pathology in transgenic AD mice models. Regular oral administration of ND improved cognitive function and memory in 3XTg-AD and 5XFAD mice. In addition, ND reduced beta-amyloid precursor protein (APP), APP C-terminal fragments (CTF-β/α), Aβ and 4G8 positive Aβ burden in 3XTg-AD and 5XFAD mice. Furthermore, ND efficiently reduced the levels of insoluble phospho-tau protein aggregates and AT8 positive phospho tau neuron load in 3XTg-AD mice. Hence, ND could be a promisi...

This study demonstrated a maximum 2.91 log reduction of Salmonella cocktail in wheat flour treated with 395 nm pulsed LED for 60 min in a semi-closed system. Oxidation occurred in wheat flour after 30 and 60 min exposure to the 395 nm LED, which subsequently led to bleaching, and polymerization of gluten components through disulphide linkage. The water holding capacity of gluten was reduced by oxidation, and the contents of secondary structures were altered significantly after pulsed LED treatment, but the rheological properties were not deteriorated. The disulfide bond formation naturally happens during dough formation an...

This study investigated the effects of thermal treatment (70, 80, and 90 °C for 5, 10, and 20 min) on the titers of human norovirus (HuNoV) GII.4, a dominant genotype in fresh mussels using propidium monoazide (PMA) pretreatment and real-time reverse transcription quantitative-polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) and the effects of thermal treatment on mussel quality (Hunter colors and sensory properties). Reductions of>1-log10 for HuNoV in PMA-treated mussels required 70 °C for 20 min, 80 °C for 10 min and 90 °C for 5 min. As assessed by PMA/RT-qPCR, the log10 reduction values of HuNoV in...

In this research, carboxymethyl rice starch (CMS) from cadmium-contaminated rice and native rice was prepared to remove the cadmium in rice. The preparation of native rice starch (NRS) and starch from cadmium-contaminated rice (Cd-CRS) was similar, and carboxymethyl starch was prepared following the same steps. A single factor experiment was performed to obtain the carboxymeth...

To address this question, we design a sulfur-doped porous hard carbon (S-HC) for PIBs through the combination of structural design and composition adjustment. The as-designed S-HC exhibits a long cycling life with ∼191 mA h/g after 300 cycles at 1 A/g, and ...
