India's rice revolution
In a village in India's poorest state, Bihar, farmers are growing world record amounts of rice – with no GM, and no herbicide. Is this one solution to world food shortages?Sumant Kumar was overjoyed when he harvested his rice last year. There had been good rains in his village of Darveshpura in north-east India and he knew he could improve on the four or five tonnes per hectare that he usually managed. But every stalk he cut on his paddy field near the bank of the Sakri river seemed to weigh heavier than usual, every grain of rice was bigger and when his crop was weighed on the old village scales, even Kumar was shocked....

Safety Regulations Should Include 'Masked' Mold Toxins In Food
Government limits on mold toxins present naturally in grain crops should be expanded to include so-called "masked mycotoxins" that change from harmless to potentially harmful forms in the body, a new study concludes. It appears in ACS' journal Chemical Research in Toxicology. Chiara Dall'Asta and colleagues explain that molds growing naturally on wheat, corn and other plants produce toxic substances termed mycotoxins. Some health experts regard mycotoxins as the most serious chronic dietary risk factor, greater than the potential health threats from pesticides and insecticides...

Prospective analysis of vitamin D and endometrial cancer risk
Conclusion Both predicted 25(OH)D and total dietary vitamin D intake were not associated with endometrial cancer incidence. These results suggest that vitamin D may not protect against the development of endometrial cancer. However, the low and narrow vitamin D exposure range in the cohort may limit generalizability of the results.

RNA-based determination of ESR1 and HER2 expression and response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy
Conclusions Our results suggest that mRNA levels of ESR1 and HER2 predict response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy and are significantly associated with long-term outcome. As an additional option to standard immunohistochemistry and gene-array-based analysis, quantitative RT-PCR analysis might be useful for determination of the receptor status in breast cancer.

Functional analysis of the copy 1 of the fixNOQP operon of Ensifer meliloti under free‐living micro‐oxic and symbiotic conditions
ConclusionsThe copy 1 of the fixNOQP operon is involved in E. meliloti respiration and growth under micro‐oxic conditions as well as in the expression of the FixO and FixP components of the cbb3 oxidase present in free‐living microaerobic cultures and in bacteroids. This copy is important for nitrogen fixation during the early steps of the symbiosis. Significance and Impact of the StudyIt is the first time that a functional analysis of the E. meliloti copy 1 of the fixNOQP operon is performed.

In the title ester derivative, C28H29NO6·0.5H2O, the 1,4-dihydropyridine ring has a flattened boat conformation. The mean plane is almost perpendicular to the attached benzene ring, making a dihedral angle of 86.87 (9)°. The terminal phenyl ring is inclined to the central benzene ring by 67.56 (12)°. In the crystal, molecules are bridged via O—H...O hydrogen bonds involving the partially occupied water molecule, and this arrangement is strengthened by a pair of N—H...O hydrogen bonds and C—H...O interactions.

Amid Rising Tide Of Diabetes More Patients Reach Treatment Goals
There's a glimmer of good news amidst all the recent bad news about diabetes. Although the prevalence of diabetes has doubled over the last generation, more people today are reaching their treatment goals than in the past. New data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES), published online today in Diabetes Care, show that efforts to control hemoglobin A1C, blood pressure, and LDL cholesterol in patients diagnosed with diabetes have achieved some success, but they also demonstrate that there's enormous room for improvement.

Hypothesis for a systems connectivity model of autism spectrum disorder pathogenesis: Links to gut bacteria, oxidative stress, and intestinal permeability
Abstract: Autism Spectrum Disorders are neurodevelopmental disorders with symptoms that include cognitive impairments, stereotyped behaviors, and impairments in social skills. The dramatic increase in incidence of autism in recent years has created an increased need to find effective treatments. This paper proposes a hypothesis for a systems model of the connections between Autism Spectrum Disorder pathogenesis routes observed in recent studies. A combination treatment option is proposed to combat multiple pathogenesis mechanisms at once. Autism has been cited as being linked to gastrointestinal symptoms and is thought to ...

The use of cloud point extraction and hydride generation for improving the Sb and Se limits of detection in ICP OES
This study deals with the application of cloud point extraction (CPE) and hydride generation (HG) for determination of Sb and Se using inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP OES). The complexing agent was ammonium diethylditiophosphate (DDTP), whereas Triton X-114 was used as surfactant for the formation of micelles. Conditions for Sb(III) and Se(IV) preconcentration, reduction of Se(VI) and Sb(V), hydrides generation and interferences were discussed. The performance of HG was compared with pneumatic nebulization (PN) for introducing the surfactant-rich phase into the plasma. Upon application of HG, ...
