In this context, Bacillus velezensis strain OEE1, isolated from endogenous root tissue of olive trees, showed the most effective antifungal activity under in vitro conditions against V. dahliae with inhibition rate exceeding 92 % using the dual culture method to investigate effects of diffusible compounds. This antagonism was also demonstrated with volatile and extracellular compounds where fungus growth was reduced by about 40 % and 60 % respectively. Gnotobiotic study of axenic in vitro olive plants, artificially inoculated with V. dahliae, using B. velezensis OEE1 cells led to a considerable reduction in Verticillium wilt severity and the disease index effectively decreased for preventive and curative treatments. Vegetative growth showed equally an interesting improvement. These potentialities are provided due to the production of numerous secondary metabolites detected by antibiotic biosynthesis genes amplification. The efficacy of B. velezensis OEE1 to suppress Verticillium wilt of olive tree was evaluated also under field conditions. This experiment revealed that B. velezensis OEE1 significantly decreased final mean disease severity index (FMS), percentage...
ConclusionGiven our findings, conservative treatment should be compared to surgical treatment for displaced fractures and the anterior approach should be compared to the posterior one for surgical cases.Level of evidenceIV.
ConclusionsThe levels of urinary miRNAs are valuable biomarkers for idiopathic ONFH. Given the noninvasive nature of this test, it is potentially useful for diagnosis and monitoring of idiopathic ONFH progression.
ConclusionThere was no statistically significant different between knotless versus knotted medial row double row rotator cuff repair constructs using suture tape in regard to displacement across the repair site, stiffness and ultimate load to failure. Despite previous evidence suggesting inferiority of knotless medial row technique using suture constructs, this evidence may support the biomechanical equivalency of knotless medial row technique using suture tape.

CONCLUSIONS: For peripheral lung cancer, the measurement on CT and routine MRI sequences can potentially replace each other after comprehensive consideration of examination purposes, but for central lung cancer, alternative use of CT and MRI in evaluating treatment responses for lung cancer should needs extra attention. The diameter measurement of lung cancer on DWI is consistent with that on T1WI and T2WI, suggesting that DWI can provide functional and morphological information.

This study was, therefore, conducted to evaluate the effectiveness WASH education program on households' WASH performance in rural Dembiya, northwest Ethiopia. Method: An uncontrolled before-and-after intervention study was conducted. Baseline and endline surveys were done among 225 and 302 randomly selected households with under-5 children, respectively, using a structured questionnaire and observational checklists. Percent point change was used to see the effect of the intervention. Pearson χ2 and Fisher exact tests were used to test for statistically significant percentage point changes on the basis of P

Sacituzumab-govitecan (SG) is a new class of antibody-drug-conjugate (ADC) targeting the human-trophoblast-cell-surface marker (Trop-2) conjugated with the active metabolite of irinotecan (SN-38). We evaluated the efficacy of SG against biologically ag...
