Myocardial Adaptations to Competitive Swim Training
Conclusion Swim training, a sport characterized by unique cardiac loading conditions, stimulates eccentric LV remodeling with the concomitant augmentation of systolic twist and diastolic relaxation. This volume-mediated cardiac remodeling appears to result in greater systolic susceptibility to acute afterload challenge. Further work is required to establish how training-induced changes in function translate to human performance and whether these are accompanied by physiologic trade-offs with relevance to common forms of heart disease.

RNA components of the spliceosome regulate tissue- and cancer-specific alternative splicing RESEARCH
Alternative splicing of pre-mRNAs plays a pivotal role during the establishment and maintenance of human cell types. Characterizing the trans-acting regulatory proteins that control alternative splicing has therefore been the focus of much research. Recent work has established that even core protein components of the spliceosome, which are required for splicing to proceed, can nonetheless contribute to splicing regulation by modulating splice site choice. We here show that the RNA components of the spliceosome likewise influence alternative splicing decisions. Although these small nuclear RNAs (snRNAs), termed U1, U2, U4, ...

Interventions for supporting the initiation and continuation of breastfeeding among women who are overweight or obese.
CONCLUSIONS: There is insufficient evidence to assess the effectiveness of physical interventions, or multiple methods of support (social, educational or physical) for supporting the initiation or continuation of breastfeeding in women who are overweight or obese. We found no RCTs comparing one type of support to another type of support. All of our GRADE assessments resulted in very low-certainty evidence, with downgrading decisions based on limitations in trial design (e.g. risk of attrition bias), imprecision, inconsistency. The available trials were mostly of variable quality with small numbers of participants, confound...

Inequities in multi-gene hereditary cancer testing: lower diagnostic yield and higher VUS rate in individuals who identify as Hispanic, African or Asian and Pacific Islander as compared to European
AbstractThe identification of germline pathogenic/likely pathogenic (P/LP) variants in cancer predisposition genes can guide treatment and management decisions for the individual being tested and potentially at-risk relatives. Prior studies have raised concerns of racial/ethnic disparities in the detection rates of P/LP variants and variants of uncertain significance (VUSs). In 2018, Color Genomics ™, a commercial laboratory, made de-identified, aggregate genetic and clinical information from 50,000 individuals who completed testing for 30 cancer predisposition genes publicly available. It is the largest publicly availab...

Is menarche occuring earlier among Lebanese girls?
CONCLUSIONS: Epidemiological figures emerging from this study confirm that trends in Lebanon are in line with a global pattern of decreasing age at menarche. Urban-rural differences suggest that higher caloric content of diet and consequent early overweight, more evident in urban areas, are likely determinants of younger menarche. Evidence from this study calls for an urgent implementation of comprehensive multisectoral obesity prevention in children in Lebanon. PMID: 31519350 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

70 Can a Wholefood Plant-based Diet Affect Healthy Ageing?
ConclusionMore research is needed into the benefits of a wholefood plant-based Diet. However as this diet is a low cost, low risk intervention it could be applied beneficially in the interim. Ageing was found to be a life-wide, life –long process so the research concluded that this diet could provide benefit to all.“The side effects of a plant-based diet could be the elimination of the need to take drugs, and further research is needed to find ways to make Plant-Based Diet the new normal” Tuso,et al (2013).

Direct and sensitive detection of circulating miRNA in human serum by ligase-mediated amplification.
Abstract MicroRNAs (miRNA) involve in regulating different physiological processes whose dysregulation is associated with a wide range of diseases including cancers, diabetes and cardiovascular problems. Herein, we report a direct, sensitive and highly selective detection assay for circulating microRNA (miRNA). This detection strategy employs magnetic nanoparticles as the reaction platform which can not only allow online pre-concentration and selective separation but also integrates ligation reaction with amplification to enhance the sensitivity of the detection assay. With the presence of the target miRNA, the lo...

Cervical cancer stem cells and other leading factors associated with cervical cancer development.
Authors: Mendoza-Almanza G, Ortíz-Sánchez E, Rocha-Zavaleta L, Rivas-Santiago C, Esparza-Ibarra E, Olmos J Abstract Cervical cancer (CC) is one of the leading causes of cancer-associated mortalities in women from developing countries. Similar to other types of cancer, CC is considered to be a multifactorial disease, involving socioeconomic, cultural, immunological and epigenetic factors, as well as persistent human papilloma virus (HPV) infection. It has been well established that cancer stem cells (CSCs) play an important role in defining tumor size, the speed of development and the level of regression following...

To avoid the sparse data bias, Bayesian logistic regression via data augmentation methods, were used for multivariable analysis. Informative normal priors adopted from the studies were used for the studied human risk factors. Weakly informative log-f was used for the covariates. The populatio...

Safety assessment of the biotechnologically produced human-identical milk oligosaccharide 3-Fucosyllactose (3-FL).
Abstract 3-Fucosyllactose (3-FL), a highly abundant complex carbohydrate in human breast milk, functions as a prebiotic promoting early microbial colonization of the gut, increasing pathogen resistance and modulating immune responses. To investigate potential health benefits, 3-FL was produced by fermentation using a genetically modified E. coli K12 strain. The safety assessment of 3-FL included acute oral toxicity, in vitro and in vivo assessment of genetic toxicity, and a subchronic rodent feeding study. 3-FL was not acutely toxic at 5000 mg/kg, and there was no evidence of genetic toxicity in the bacterial re...

Low-grade screen-detected ductal carcinoma in situ progresses more slowly than high-grade lesions: evidence from an international multi-centre study
ConclusionsThese results suggest that the duration of the preclinical detectable phase is longer for low than for high-grade DCIS. The findings from this large multi-centre, international study emphasize that the management of low-grade DCIS should be carefully scrutinized in order to minimize overtreatment of screen-detected slow-growing or indolent lesions. The high variation by site in the proportion of low grade suggests that further pathology standardization and training would be beneficial.
