POP surgery benefits may be short-lived

Pelvic organ prolapse surgery is beneficial but around a third of women will experience relapse within 7 years of their operation, show extended results from the Colpopexy and Urinary Reduction Efforts trial.

Complex 3D hollow xerogels with aligned CNCs are prepared from dynamic hydrogels by mechanical stretching and air-drying process. Their mechanical properties are revealed for the first time to be controlled by changing the morphology of the initial hydrogels and the mechanical stretching ratios. Both the aligned CNCs on the nanoscale and the geometry of the xerogels affect the mechanical properties. AbstractAdvanced materials with aligned cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) have attracted much attention due to their remarkable mechanical and optical properties, but most of them still focus on 1D or 2D architectures. Herein, comp...

ConclusionAcid hydrolysis enhances the skin sensitizing capacity of gluten and drives IgE reactivity to more gluten proteins. This property of acid hydrolyzed gluten may be related to the degree of product deamidation, and could be a strong trigger of wheat allergy in susceptible individuals.
