Modelling time ‐course relationships with multiple treatments: Model‐Based Network Meta‐Analysis for continuous summary outcomes
ConclusionsTime ‐course MBNMA provides a statistically robust framework for synthesising evidence on multiple treatments at multiple time points. The use of placebo‐controlled studies in drug‐development means there is limited potential for inconsistency. The methods can inform drug‐development decisions, a nd provide the rigour needed in the reimbursement decision‐making process.

A Novel Regulator of Preadipocyte Differentiation, Transcription Factor TCF21, Functions Partially Through Promoting LPL Expression
Discussion Excessive fat deposition in chickens can result in many undesirable consequences within the poultry industry, including reduced feeding efficiency (Zhou et al., 2006) and decreased reproductive performance (Walzem and Chen, 2014). Thus, broiler breeders urgently require a more thorough understanding of the molecular mechanism governing chicken adipogenesis. We previously found that broilers from lean and fat lines exhibit clear differences in reproductive performance (Zhang et al., 2018). In addition, TCF21 was found to be related to testis growth and development in these broilers (Zhang et al., 2017). In mice ...

Immunomodulation as a Neuroprotective Strategy for Glaucoma Treatment
AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review aims to highlight the current knowledge about inflammatory mechanisms of neurodegeneration in glaucoma with emphasis on potential immunomodulation strategies.Recent FindingsGlaucomatous retina and optic nerve present multiple evidences of inflammatory responses of astroglia, microglia, and blood-borne immune cells. Although adaptive/protective responses of resident or systemic immune cells can support neurons and promote tissue repair mechanisms after injurious insults, prolonged inflammatory processes can also produce neurotoxic mediators. Treatments targeting these neurodestructive ou...

Molecules, Vol. 24, Pages 1605: Microwave-Assisted Extraction, Purification, Partial Characterization, and Bioactivity of Polysaccharides from Panax ginseng
Zhou Polysaccharides are a main active substance in Panax ginseng; however, microwave-assisted extraction used to prepare P. ginseng polysaccharides (MPPG) has rarely been reported, and knowledge of the bactericidal activity of P. ginseng polysaccharides remains low. Thus, this study was designed to investigate the extraction of P. ginseng polysaccharides by using two methods—hot water extraction and microwave-assisted extraction—and compare their chemical composition and structure. In addition, their antibacterial and antioxidant activities were also determined. The data implied that P. gi...

Interferon Lambda Inhibits Bacterial Uptake during Influenza Superinfection Host Response and Inflammation
Influenza kills 30,000 to 40,000 people each year in the United States and causes 10 times as many hospitalizations. A common complication of influenza is bacterial superinfection, which exacerbates morbidity and mortality from the viral illness. Recently, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has emerged as the dominant pathogen found in bacterial superinfection, with Streptococcus pneumoniae a close second. However, clinicians have few tools to treat bacterial superinfection. Current therapy for influenza/bacterial superinfection consists of treating the underlying influenza infection and adding various anti...

Neutrophils Dampen Adaptive Immunity in Brucellosis Host Response and Inflammation
Brucella organisms are intracellular stealth pathogens of animals and humans. The bacteria overcome the assault of innate immunity at early stages of an infection. Removal of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) at the onset of adaptive immunity against Brucella abortus favored bacterial elimination in mice. This was associated with higher levels of interferon gamma (IFN-) and a higher proportion of cells expressing interleukin 6 (IL-6) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), compatible with M1 macrophages, in PMN-depleted B. abortus-infected (PMNd-Br) mice. At later times in the acute infection phase, the amounts of I...

Alternative Enzyme Protection Assay To Overcome the Drawbacks of the Gentamicin Protection Assay for Measuring Entry and Intracellular Survival of Staphylococci Bacterial Infections
Precise enumeration of living intracellular bacteria is the key step to estimate the invasion potential of pathogens and host immune responses to understand the mechanism and kinetics of bacterial pathogenesis. Therefore, quantitative assessment of host-pathogen interactions is essential for development of novel antibacterial therapeutics for infectious disease. The gentamicin protection assay (GPA) is the most widely used method for these estimations by counting the CFU of intracellular living pathogens. Here, we assess the longstanding drawbacks of the GPA by employing an antistaphylococcal endopeptidase as a bactericida...

Cooperative Interactions between Trichomonas vaginalis and Associated Bacteria Enhance Paracellular Permeability of the Cervicovaginal Epithelium by Dysregulating Tight Junctions Cellular Microbiology: Pathogen-Host Cell Molecular Interactions
The human protozoan Trichomonas vaginalis is the causative agent of trichomoniasis, a prevalent sexually transmitted infection, which is accompanied by a species-diversified vaginal microbiota named community state type IV (CST-IV). Coincidently, CST-IV includes species associated with bacterial vaginosis (e.g. Gardnerella vaginalis, Atopobium vaginae, and Prevotella bivia). Both diseases are linked to the transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and preterm birth, which complications are likely to result from the disruption of the cervicovaginal epithelial barrier. Here, we show that paracellular permeability of...

The Plasmid-Encoded pGP3 Promotes Chlamydia Evasion of Acidic Barriers in Both Stomach and Vagina Cellular Microbiology: Pathogen-Host Cell Molecular Interactions
Although Chlamydia trachomatis is a human genital tract pathogen, chlamydial organisms have frequently been detected in both vaginal and rectal swab samples of animals and humans. The plasmid-encoded pGP3, a genital tract virulence factor, is essential for Chlamydia muridarum to colonize the mouse gastrointestinal tract. However, intracolon inoculation to bypass the gastric barrier rescued the colonization ability of a pGP3-deficient C. muridarum mutant, suggesting that pGP3 is required for C. muridarum to reach but not to colonize the large intestine. The pGP3-deficient mutant was rapidly cleared in the stomach and was 10...

Selection of Competitive and Efficient Rhizobia Strains for White Clover
Conclusion This study provides proof of concept for a strategy to select inoculants with high competitive ability under field conditions for regions with introduced exotic legumes and their symbionts. Native-naturalized rhizobia strains selected by their N fixation efficiency, showed greater nodule occupancy than the currently used commercial introduced strain, independent of soil type, and of previous history of inoculation. Most importantly, the differences in nodule occupancy between the selected native-naturalized strains and the commercial one remained when assessed under field conditions at two sites and in two sowi...

Substitution of an Internal Disulfide Bridge in Human Insulin by a Diselenide Enhances its Foldability and Stability.
Abstract Insulin analogs exemplify the utility of protein engineering in molecular pharmacology. Whereas chemical syntheses of the individual A and B chains were accomplished in the early 1960s, their combination to form native insulin remains inefficient due to competing disulfide pairing and aggregation. To overcome these limitations, we envisioned an alternative approach: pairwise substitution of cysteine residues by selenocysteine (Sec, U). To this end, CysA6 and CysA11 (which form the internal intrachain A6-A11 disulfide bridge) were each replaced by Sec. The A chain[C6U, C11U] variant was prepared by SPPS; s...

Epidemiology of Sudden Death in Organized Youth Sports in the United States, 2007-2015.
CONCLUSIONS: Sudden deaths in organized youth sports in the United States from 2007 through 2015 were most often experienced during practices by males, were cardiac related, and occurred while playing basketball. These findings are similar to those in high school and collegiate sports. This study affirms the need for further epidemiologic research into sudden deaths at the organized youth sport level.
