Domestic wastewater and agricultural runoff are increasingly viewed as major threats to both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems due to the introduction of non-point source inorganic (e.g., nitrogen, phosphorus and metals) and organic (e. Read More

Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D CRT) are two treatment modalities in prostate cancer, which provide acceptable dose distribution in tumor region with sparing the surrounding normal tissues. IMRT is based on inverse planning optimization; in which, intensity of beams is modified by using multileaf collimators and also compensators with optimum shapes in step and shoot (SAS) and compensator-based method, respectively. In the recent study, some important parameters were compared in two IMRT and 3D CRT methods. Read More

A highly conserved DNA uptake system allows many bacteria to actively import and integrate exogenous DNA. This process, called natural transformation, represents a major mechanism of horizontal gene transfer (HGT) involved in the acquisition of virulence and antibiotic resistance determinants. Despite evidence of HGT and the high level of conservation of the genes coding the DNA uptake system, most bacterial species appear non-transformable under laboratory conditions. Read More

To describe the spatial and temporal profiles of connectivity networks and sources preceding generalized spike-and-wave discharges (SWDs) in human absence epilepsy. Nonlinear associations of MEG signals and cluster indices obtained within the framework of graph theory were determined, while source localization in the frequency domain was performed in the low frequency bands with dynamic imaging of coherent sources. The results were projected on a three-dimensional surface rendering of the brain using a semi-realistic head model and MRI images obtained for each of the five patients studied. Read More
