An adverse relationship between some parasite infections and cancer in the human population has been reported by different research groups. Anticancer activity of some parasites such as Trypanosoma cruzi, Toxoplasma gondii, Toxocara canis, Acantamoeba castellani and Plasmodium yoelii has been shown in experimental animals. Moreover, it has been shown that cancer-associated mucin-type O-glycan compositions are made by parasites, therefore cancers and parasites have common antigens. In this report anticancer activities of some parasites have been reviewed and the possible mechanisms of these actions have also been discussed. © 2012 Future Medicine Ltd. Source

It is well established that the mechanical behavior of ultra-small elements is size-dependent. In this paper, strain gradient continuum theory is applied for modeling the size-dependent pull-in instability of torsional nano-actuator. An actuator with a general hexagonal shape main plate is considered. The governing equation of the actuator is derived taking the effect of electrostatic and Casimir forces into account. Variation of the tilt angle as a function of the applied voltage is calculated. Moreover, the pull-in voltage and pull-in angle of the actuator are determined. Results show that when the thickness of the torsional beam is comparable with the intrinsic material length scales, size effect can substantially increase the instability voltage and angle of the rotational actuator. Moreover, the effect of the Casimir force on the size-dependent pull-in instability of the torsional actuator is discussed. Interestingly, the proposed model is able to predict the experimental results more accurately than the previous classic models and reduce the gap between previous theories and experimental measurements. © 2013 The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

Anxiety and depression are highly comorbid psychiatric conditions that the prevalence will be increased to the second greatest risk of morbidity, causing a significant socioeconomic burden. Due to side effects and destructive effects of some chemical drugs, many patients prefer herbal medicines to treat diseases. Although there are key review papers in the area of medicinal plants and psychiatry disorders, they have either covered the area in a relatively cursory manner or focused on a specific plant medicine. In the present study, we tried to present the effect of most important medicinal plants on two important highly comorbid psychiatric conditions-anxiety and depression. © 2014 Hainan Medical College.

Experiments reveal that mechanical behavior of nanostructures is size-dependent. Herein, the size dependent pull-in instability of torsional nano-mirror is investigated using strain gradient nonclassic continuum theory. The governing equation of the mirror is derived taking the effect of electrostatic Coulomb and molecular van der Waals (vdW) forces into account. Variation of the rotation angle of the mirror as a function of the applied voltage is obtained and the instability parameters i.e., pull-in voltage and pull-in angle are determined. Nano-mirrors with square and circular cross-sectional beams are investigated as case studies. It is found that when the thickness of the torsional nano-beam is comparable with the intrinsic material length scales, size effect can substantially increase the instability parameters of the rotational mirror. Moreover, the effect of vdW forces on the size-dependent pull-in instability of the system is discussed. The proposed model is able to predict the experimental results more accurately than the previous classic models and reduce the gap between experiment and previous theories. © 2013 World Scientific Publishing Company.

Background and Purpose-This article aims to make projections of future trends in stroke mortality in the Year 2030 based on recent trends in stroke mortality in 7 Western European countries. Methods-Mortality data were obtained from national cause of death registries. Annual rates of decline in stroke mortality of 1980 to 2005 were determined for men and women in the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands, and 4 Nordic countries on the basis of regression analysis. Estimated rates of decline were extrapolated until 2030. Cause-elimination life tables were used to determine the effect of stroke in 2030 in terms of potential gain in life expectancy. The absolute numbers of stroke deaths in 2030 were estimated using national population projections of Eurostat. Results-In all countries, stroke mortality rates declined incessantly until 2005 among both men and women. If these trends were to continue, age-adjusted mortality rates would decline by approximately half between 2005 and 2030 with larger declines in France (approximately two thirds) and smaller declines in the Netherlands, Denmark, and Sweden (approximately one fourth). Similar rates of decline would be observed in terms of potential gain in life expectancy. Because of population aging, the absolute number of stroke deaths would decline slowly in the United Kingdom and France and stabilize or even increase in other countries. Conclusions-In the near future, stroke may lose much of its effects on life expectancy but remain a frequent cause of death among elderly populations. The prevention of stroke-related disability instead of mortality may become increasingly more important. © 2011 American Heart Association, Inc. Source
