Electrophysiological Evaluation of Dysphagia in the Mild or Moderate Patients with Multiple Sclerosis: A Concept of Subclinical Dysphagia
This study aims to evaluate the presence of subclinical dysphagia in patients with mild multiple sclerosis (MS) using electrophysiological methods. A prospective study of 51 patients with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis and 18 age-matched healthy adults was investigated. We used electromyography to measure the activity of the submental muscles during swallowing. Electrophysiological recordings of patients were obtained during relapse, after relapse, and at any time in remission period. Clinical dysphagia was found in 12 % of MS patients, while electrophysiological swallowing abnormalities were encountered in 33 % ...

Complete genome sequence and description of Salinispira pacifica gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel spirochaete isolated form a hypersaline microbial mat
During a study of the anaerobic microbial community of a lithifying hypersaline microbial mat of Lake 21 on the Kiritimati atoll (Kiribati Republic, Central Pacific) strain L21-RPul-D2T was isolated. The closest phylogenetic neighbor was Spirochaeta africana Z-7692T that shared a 16S rRNA gene sequence identity value of 90% with the novel strain and thus was only distantly related. A comprehensive polyphasic study including determination of the complete genome sequence was initiated to characterize the novel isolate.Cells of strain L21-RPul-D2T had a size of 0.2 – 0.25 × 8–9 μm, were helical, motile, stained Gra...

Molecules, Vol. 20, Pages 3479-3495: Nutritional Value and Volatile Compounds of Black Cherry (Prunus serotina) Seeds
Prunus serotina (black cherry), commonly known in Mexico as capulín, is used in Mexican traditional medicine for the treatment of cardiovascular, respiratory, and gastrointestinal diseases. Particularly, P. serotina seeds, consumed in Mexico as snacks, are used for treating cough. In the present study, nutritional and volatile analyses of black cherry seeds were carried out to determine their nutraceutical potential. Proximate analysis indicated that P. serotina raw and toasted seeds contain mostly fat, followed by protein, fiber, carbohydrates, and ash. The potassium content in black cherry raw and toasted seeds is high,...

Corticosteroids for Severe Community-Acquired Pneumonia Not for Everyone
Corticosteroids are the physician’s immunomodulatory agent of choice. These agents are inexpensive and ubiquitously available, have a well-known adverse effect profile, do not require monitoring of drug levels, and, probably most important, mimic the body’s own response to stress. Accordingly, corticosteroids have been used for a wide variety of medical illnesses. Use of corticosteroids for acute illness has always been controversial, no more so than for treating the triad of community-acquired pneumonia, septic shock, and acute respiratory distress syndrome.

AG 85, a major secretion protein of can be identified in ancient bone
For the confirmation of Ag 85 in ancient and recent ECM of native macerated human bone, five cases were investigated. In three individuals, highly positive results for Ag 85 were identified in Western blot: 1) a male from Arzhan, South Siberia, dating from the 7th century BC, 2) a male from Kirchberg in Hesse, Germany, dating from the 10th – 12th century AD and 3) a recent female with a proven diagnosis of TB. As a negative control, a recent male is presented who did not suffer from TB. In another recent male, Ag 85 could be identified only very weakly. (Source: Tuberculosis)

Langerhans cell histiocytosis or Tuberculosis on a medieval child ( - 10-11 centuries AD)
In 2008, a skeleton of a 1 - 2.5-year-old child radiocarbon dated from the 10th - 11th century AD was discovered on the oppidum of La Granède (Millau, France). It presents multiple cranial osteolytic lesions having punched-out or geographical map-like aspects associated with sequestrum and costal osteitis. A multi 3D digital approach (CT, μCT and virtual reconstruction) enabled us to refine the description and identify the diploic origin of the lytic process. Furthermore, precise observation of the extent of the lesions and associated reorganization of the skeletal micro-structure were possible. (Source: Tuberculosis)

Severe Re-expansion Pulmonary Edema Induced by One-Lung Ventilation.
We present 2 cases of severe re-expansion pulmonary edema (RPE) after one-lung ventilation (OLV) for thoracic surgery. A 32-y-old woman with multiple lung metastases developed severe RPE after OLV during lung resection surgery. A 37-y-old man with infective endocarditis also developed severe RPE after OLV for mitral valve plasty with minimally invasive cardiac surgery. In both cases, results of a preoperative pulmonary function test and oxygenation were almost normal, and pleural effusion or pulmonary congestion was not detected in preoperative computed tomography; however, there was a possibility that subclinical lung inj...
