AbstractIn this paper we present a case of a 65-year-old man, with chronic kidney insufficiency treated with hemodialysis, found dead by his wife, lying in his bed. Based on autopsy findings, toxicological analysis, the police report and circumstances of death, it was concluded that the death was suicidal and that the cause of death was hemorrhagic shock due to fatal blood loss through a small puncture wound in an arteriovenous fistula of the left forearm, inflicted by a small Swiss Army knife. Similarly to occupation-related suicides, the victim had used his knowledge about chronic kidney disease and the relatively high p...
CONCLUSIONS: These findings provide insight into cannabis-related views within the New Zealand context, and may help to predict voting behaviour during the 2020 Cannabis Referendum. PMID: 32438379 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Cancers have utility in assessing heritability, but a low prevalence and lack of diagnostic data rules this out. Psychological conditions may be heritable, but the techniques to assess this are still developing. Chromosomal damage in veterans and offspring can be detected, but with present knowledge cannot explain health outcomes. Future work should assemble a veteran and family register with linkage to routine data-sets. Veterans and offspring should be encouraged to seek support. PMID: 32438378 [PubMed - in process]
Abstract Sorption onto clays (montmorillonite and kaolinite), oxidation and sorption by manganese oxides (synthesized MnO and natural MnO), and coupled sorption-oxidation experiments were conducted for the removal of antibiotics sulfadiazine (SDZ) and ciprofloxacin (CIP) at pH 5 and 8. Individual sorption and oxidation modelling were carried out using the first-order kinetic model. A coupled sorption-oxidation kinetic model was developed to predict the simultaneous sorption and oxidation process. The coupled sorption-oxidation enhanced the antibiotic sorption, with the first-order sorption rate constants in the si...

Clinical features of AD are different in adults compared to children, but it is well recognized the substantial impact of the disease on patients' quality of life at any age. Indeed, little is known about AD in adolescence, a period of life generally associated with high psycholog...
