  • Microbial community structure of wastewater treatment subjected to high mortality rate due to ozonation of return activated sludge

    Updated: 2014-04-17 06:06:41
    ConclusionsThe results suggest that RAS‐ozonation is not a main environmental factor structuring the community composition. Instead, the parallel drifts and slight convergence of the two community structures indicate that other environmental factors such as influent wastewater composition and temperature may be more important. Care should be exercised in interpreting the proportion of sequence reads as pyrosequencing may be biased as compared to FISH. Significance and Impact of the StudyThis study provides new insights on the importance of indiscriminate high mortality rates brought by external factors (here ozonation) on microbial community structures of activated sludge system.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Class 1 Integrons and Antibiotic Resistance of Clinical Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-baumannii Complex in Poznań, Poland.

    Updated: 2014-04-17 00:00:00
    Authors: Koczura R, Przyszlakowska B, Mokracka J, Kaznowski A Abstract Sixty-three clinical isolates of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-baumannii complex were analyzed for the presence of integrons and antimicrobial resistance. Class 1 integrons were detected in 40 (63.5 %) isolates. None of them had class 2 or class 3 integrons. The majority of the integrons contained aacC1-orfA-orfB-aadA1 gene cassette array. The presence of integrons was associated with the increased frequency of resistance to 12 of 15 antimicrobials tested, multi-drug resistance phenotype, and the overall resistance ranges of the strains.

  • Reassortant swine influenza viruses isolated in Japan contain genes from pandemic A(H1N1)2009

    Updated: 2014-04-17 00:00:00
    Abstract In 2013, three ressortant swine influenza viruses (SIVs)—two H1N2 and one H3N2—were isolated from symptomatic pigs in Japan; each contained genes from the pandemic A(H1N1)2009 virus and endemic SIVs. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that the two H1N2 viruses, A/swine/Gunma/1/2013 and A/swine/Ibaraki/1/2013, were reassortants that contain genes from three distinct lineages: 1) H1 and NP genes derived from a classical swine H1 HA lineage uniquely circulating among Japanese SIVs; 2) NA genes from human‐like H1N2 swine viruses; and 3) other genes from pandemic A(H1N1)2009 viruses. The H3N2 virus, A/swine/Miyazaki/2/2013, comprised genes from two sources: 1) HA and NA genes derived from human and human‐like H3N2 swine viruses; and 2) other genes from pandemic A(H1N1)2009 viruses....

  • Microbiology of aggressive periodontitis

    Updated: 2014-04-17 00:00:00
    Abstract For decades, Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans has been considered the most likely etiologic agent in aggressive periodontitis. Implementation of DNA‐based microbiologic methodologies has considerably improved our understanding of the composition of subgingival biofilms, and advanced open‐ended molecular techniques even allow for genome mapping of the whole bacterial spectrum in a sample and characterization of both the cultivable and not‐yet‐cultivable microbiota associated with periodontal health and disease. Currently, A. actinomycetemcomitans is regarded as a minor component of the resident oral microbiota and as an opportunistic pathogen in some individuals. Its specific JP2 clone, however, shows properties of a true exogenous pathogen and has an important role i...

  • Method for assessment of body fat

    Updated: 2014-04-07 11:43:06
    However, there still remains considerable variability in percent body fat across populations and between gender, and this variability becomes magnified when patients undergo therapies designed to reduce body fat, such as cardiac rehabilitation. Since body fat does not consume any significant oxygen, a reduction in fat weight could lead to an observed increase in the traditional weight-adjusted pkVo2 without a true increase in peak aerobic capacity having occurred. One potential limitation...

    Dietary modification of both fat, and when appropriate, total calories, is an integral component of risk factor modification currently used in the treatment of patients with coronary heart disease. When applied to individuals without concomitant exercise therapy, there is generally a loss of body weight consisting of reductions in both body fat and LBM. One of the benefits of cardiac rehabilitation is that dietary changes are made in concert with exercise therapy such that most of the resultin...

    To determine the oxygen uptake of primarily oxygen-consuming tissues, we assessed the oxygen consumption corrected for lean body mass (milliliters of oxygen consumed per kilogram of lean body mass per minute), defined as pkVo2 lean. After the outpatient cardiac rehabilitation exercise training program, each patient underwent a protocol similar to the preprogram exercise assessment. Statistics All results are expressed as mean±SD. Paired t tests were used to evaluate eff...

  • Breath-to-breath on-line gas analysis

    Updated: 2014-04-07 11:16:50
    Each patient was evaluated by a dietitian who prescribed a phase I diet of the American Heart Association. Furthermore, if the patient was found to be obese, further caloric restriction was recommended. Patients with significant hypercholesterolemia and obesity were periodically followed up by the dietitian during the 3-month program to ensure compliance with and understanding of the prescribed therapy. Height, weight, body mass index, percent body fat, age, gender, and pkVo2 were assesse...

  • Cardiopulmonary Parameters

    Updated: 2014-04-07 11:11:29
    Materials and Methods We prospectively evaluated 500 consecutive patients 4 to 6 weeks following a major cardiac event (coronary bypass surgery, myocardial infarction, percutaneous coronary angioplasty) who were referred for cardiac rehabilitation at the Cardiovascular Health Center of Ochsner Medical Institutions. Patients participated in outpatient cardiac rehabilitation and exercise training that lasted 12 weeks and included 36 educational and exercise sessions. Each session consisted...

  • Cardiac Rehabilitation

    Updated: 2014-04-07 11:09:00
    Cardiac rehabilitation and exercise training are known to result in improvements in multiple risk factors, including reductions in total cholesterol level, body fat, systolic BP, and increases in peak aerobic capacity. Augmentation of peak aerobic capacity is known to reduce total and cardiovascular mortality and is thought to be a result of exercise conditioning that takes place during the rehabilitation process, the so-called “training effect.” Peak aerobic capacity, measured as pe...

  • Effect of inhaled corticosteroids

    Updated: 2014-04-07 11:02:26
    A meta-analysis on the effect of inhaled corticosteroids on growth showed that inhaling beclometha-sone dipropionate was significantly associated with attaining normal stature. Two recent double-blind clinical trials with 7 to 12 months of follow-up, however, showed reduction of statural growth by about 1 cm/yr in children inhaling beclomethasone dipropionate, 400 to 800 μg/d. To our knowledge, no such long-term studies are available with FP. Because knemometry does not predic...

  • Level of asthma control

    Updated: 2014-04-07 10:58:50
    The lack of blinding in our study is a disadvantage in comparison to previous studies. However, knemometry as performed in this study is a rigorously standardized objective measure of lower leg growth velocity that is not readily prone to observer bias. Because treatment order was not random, a carryover or order effect cannot be excluded. In other studies, however, 2-week washout periods after treatment with inhaled corticosteroids were sufficient to detect a significant difference in lower leg...

  • Asthma

    Updated: 2014-04-07 10:54:33
    Results Twenty-one patients completed the study. Clinical characteristics are shown in Table 1. Figure 1 shows the lower leg growth velocity during 6 weeks of treatment with inhaled corticosteroids (run-in phase) and during 2 weeks without inhaled corticosteroids (washout phase). Because there was no difference in left and right lower leg growth velocity, the mean of both legs was used. Blister counts showed mean (SD) compliance with prescribed dosages of 94% (9%). There were no signif...

  • Nocturnal Oximetry

    Updated: 2014-04-07 09:46:52
    Oxygen pulse went up from 6.8± 1.1 mL/beat to 8.6±1.7 at 1 week and 8.0±1.1 at 3 weeks and 8.0±1.7 mL/beat after returning to Jerusalem (p<0.03). Estimated physiologic dead space ventilation at rest and at peak exercise did not change significantly at both locations (p = not significant). Similarly, respiratory rate and tidal volume were unchanged at both locations at rest and at peak exercise. Six-Minute Walking Distance Distance increased from 337&plus...

  • Spirometry

    Updated: 2014-04-07 09:12:16
    Spirometry Spirometry with and without bronchodilators (2.5 mg albuterol inhalation) was performed with a spirometer (Vitalograph Ltd; Buckingham, UK). All results were corrected for body temperature pressure saturated. Predicted values used were from the European Committee on Clinical Standardisation; 1983. Exercise Testing Progressive exercise testing was performed on a bicycle on a system (Medgraphic; Medical Graphics; St. Paul, Minn) according to Harbor-UCLA protocol. For each pa...

    Updated: 2014-04-07 09:03:01
    Eleven oxygen-dependent patients followed up by the pulmonary clinic at Hadassah University Hospital were studied. Their demographic data and diagnosis are detailed in Table 1. There were nine men and two women with ages ranging from 38 to 79 years. Pulmonary function data are detailed in Table 2. Barometric pressures were measured by a standard mercuiy manometer as well as with the blood gas analyzer. On the testing days, Jerusalem barometric pressure was between 696 and 697 and Dead Se...

  • ScanDrop's Implications on Biological Testing

    Updated: 2014-03-27 17:39:22
    Big things are coming out of Northeastern University. Tania Konry, a professor of pharmaceutical sciences has developed a tool that has the potential to completely change the way scientist research, experimental and provide treatment. The technology, penned as ScanDrop is capable of carrying out the same number of biological scans and tests as other methods but in an amount of time that puts "older" methods to shame. How does this work? The technology in Sc...
