A need for a paradigm shift in focus: From Kt/Vurea to appropriate removal of sodium (the ignored uremic toxin)
This study committed a Type II statistical error rejecting the time of dialysis as an important factor in determining the quality of dialysis. This study also provided the basis for the establishment of the Kt/Vurea index as a measure of dialysis adequacy. This index having been established in a sacrosanct randomized controlled trial (RCT), was readily accepted by the HD community, and led to shorter dialysis, and higher mortality in the United States. Kt/Vurea is a poor measure of dialysis quality because it combines three unrelated variables into a single formula. These variables influence the clinical status of the pati...

The lost world of Cuatro Ci énegas Basin, a relictual bacterial niche in a desert oasis
Barriers to microbial migrations can lead adaptive radiations and increased endemism. We propose that extreme unbalanced nutrient stoichiometry of essential nutrients can be a barrier to microbial immigration over geological timescales. At the oasis in the Cuatro Ci énegas Basin in Mexico, nutrient stoichiometric proportions are skewed given the low phosphorus availability in the ecosystem. We show that this endangered oasis can be a model for alost world. The ancient niche of extreme unbalanced nutrient stoichiometry favoured survival of ancestral microorganisms. This extreme nutrient imbalance persisted due to environme...

Sensors, Vol. 18, Pages 4054: Intersection Intelligence: Supporting Urban Platooning with Virtual Traffic Lights over Virtualized Intersection-Based Routing
We present one proposal to bring together Virtual Traffics Lights (VTLs) and platooning in urban scenarios, leaning on vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication protocols that turn intersections into virtual containers of data. Newly-introduced protocols for the combined management of VTLs and platoons are validated by simulation, comparing a range of routing protocols for the vehicular networks with the baseline given by common deployments of traditional traffic lights ruled by state-of-the-art policies. The simulation results show that the combination of VTLs and platoons can achieve significant reductions in travel times a...

GP2017: An Adalimumab Biosimilar
AbstractGP2017 (adalimumab) is a biosimilar anti-TNF- α antibody. It is approved in the EU for use in all indications for which reference adalimumab is approved. GP2017 has similar physicochemical and functional properties to those of reference adalimumab, and the pharmacokinetic similarity of the agent has been shown in healthy male volunteers. GP201 7 demonstrated clinical efficacy equivalent to that of reference adalimumab in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis; the tolerability, safety and immunogenicity profiles of the two agents were also similar. Multiple switching between GP20...
