Mathematical and Computer Modelling | Year: 2012
Most End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients receiving dialysis therapy are in a state of constant metabolic acidosis which is associated with high cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. In an attempt to improve the quality and efficacy of ESRD patients suffering from acidosis many experimental approaches have been used to investigate acid-base balance during dialysis sessions. However, these experimental approaches are expensive and time consuming. To reduce acidosis morbidity, a compartmental mathematical model is used in this paper. The model takes into account the exchange of small solutes, bicarbonate (HCO 3 -) and carbon dioxide, across a non-uniform trans-membrane dialyzer. Blood and dialysate flows are simulated using the Navier-Stokes and Darcy equations respectively. Since the trans-membrane (TM) flux would not be uniform, both blood- and dialysate-side equations are coupled with interfacial conditions calculated by Kedem-Katchalsky equations. Numerical results and clinical data are in close agreement within a satisfactory range, thus confirming that mathematical models can predict dialysis operative parameters with accuracy. Numerical results also confirm that acid-base balance for ESRD patients can be achieved during HCO 3 - dialysis therapy. Thus, the model quantifies adequate choice of bicarbonate and electrolyte concentrations to help improve acid-base status of ESRD patients suffering from acidosis. As an investigative framework, the model can also provide a clear insight into other small solute exchanges across the dialyzer membrane. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

Ongoing development of haptic technology has the potential to provide significant improvement in safety and performance in demanding environments where vision and hearing are compromised. Research regarding the cognitive psychology of touch is lacking and could be beneficial in the development of expectations about human performance for the refinement and implementation of haptic technology. This study examines haptic-spatial memory using a novel assessment method based on finger anatomy. In addition, evidence is presented for a serial-position effect for haptic-spatial memory that is analogous to the classic serial-position effect demonstrated in the verbal recall of word lists. Finally, haptic-spatial memory is compared with short- and long-term memory for visual-spatial tasks. © 2008-2011 IEEE.

Plantago schrenkii (dwarf plantain) from the Russian Arctic is frequently segregated at species level from P. maritima (sea plantain). Using simultaneous morphometric and molecular analyses, I came to the conclusion that P. schrenkii is just an ecological form of sea plantain and should not be recognized at any taxonomical level. © 2015 Finnish Zoological and Botanical Publishing Board.

Premise of the study: Finding a plant or animal that was previously considered extinct is a fortunate (but rare) event in biology. Haptanthus hazlettii was collected from Honduras (Central America) in 1980, but numerous attempts to re-collect it have failed. Reproductive organs of Haptanthus are unique among angiosperms and make the search for phylogenetic relations difficult. Unfortunately, all attempts to extract DNA from the existing sample were unsuccessful. Methods: In 2010, we organized a small expedition to Honduras and were able to re-collect this plant, extract DNA from dried samples, and sequence the barcoding region of rbcL. Key results and conclusions: We obtained phylogenetic trees with reliable support for the placement of Haptanthus as a new member of Buxaceae (boxwood family). © 2011 Botanical Society of America.

Background and objectives The efficacy of adjusted-dose warfarin for prevention of stroke in atrial fibrillation patients with stage 3 chronic kidney disease (CKD) is unknown. Design, setting, participants, & measurements Patients with stage 3 CKD participating in the Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation 3 trials were assessed to determine the effect of warfarin anticoagulation on stroke and major hemorrhage, and whether CKD status independently contributed to stroke risk. High-risk participants (n = 1044) in the randomized trial were assigned to adjusted-dose warfarin (target international normalized ratio 2 to 3) versus aspirin (325 mg) plus fixed, low-dose warfarin (subsequently shown to be equivalent to aspirin alone). Low-risk participants (n=892) all received 325 mg aspirin daily. The primary outcome was ischemic stroke (96%) or systemic embolism (4%). Results Among the 1936 participants in the two trials, 42% (n=805) had stage 3 CKD at entry. Considering the 1314 patients not assigned to adjusted-dose warfarin, the primary event rate was double among those with stage 3 CKD (hazard ratio 2.0, 95% CI 1.2, 3.3) versus those with a higher estimated GFR (eGFR). Among the 516 participants with stage 3 CKD included in the randomized trial, ischemic stroke/systemic embolism was reduced 76% (95% CI 42, 90; P < 0.001) by adjusted-dose warfarin compared with aspirin/ low-dose warfarin; there was no difference in major hemorrhage (5 patients versus 6 patients, respectively). Conclusions Among atrial fibrillation patients participating in the Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation III trials, stage 3 CKD was associated with higher rates of ischemic stroke/systemic embolism. Adjusted-dose warfarin markedly reduced ischemic stroke/systemic embolism in high-risk atrial fibrillation patients with stage 3 CKD. © 2011 by the American Society of Nephrology.

Cancer Genetics | Year: 2015
In general, the field of cancer genetics seems to have shifted its focus from cancer-associated genes to cancer-associated epigenetic activity. An abundance of evidence suggests that epigenetic malfunction, such as aberrant histone modification, and altered DNA methylation, is at the root of much, if not most aberrant gene expression associated with cancer. However, a role for epigenetics in physical DNA changes, such as chromosome rearrangements, is less obvious, and certainly less well understood. A growing body of evidence suggests that epigenetics may play a role in many of the steps of aberrant chromosome recombination, especially chromosome translocations, associated with cancers such as acute leukemias. © 2015 Elsevier Inc..

I review the status of scientific, political, and moral problems of global climate change (GCC) and, based on lessons from environmental and sustainability programs in universities, demonstrate that universities have had a lethargic response to urgent needs to mitigate the problems. I explore reasons for the response, and conclude that there is an urgent need for comprehensive and wide-ranging change in universities to help mitigate GCC. My discussion is focused on those within universities as well as those in environmental professions regardless of their areas of specialization. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2011.
