Sulfatide (3-O-sulfogalactosylceramide, SM4) is a glycosphingolipid, highly multifunctional and particularly enriched in the myelin sheath of neurons. The role of sulfatide has been implicated in various biological fields such as the nervous system, immune system, host-pathogen recognition and infection, beta cell function and haemostasis/thrombosis. Thus, alterations in sulfatide metabolism and production are associated with several human diseases such as neurological and immunological disorders and cancers. Read More

Boron-containing organic compounds are well accepted as a class of compounds having excellent photophysical properties. In addition to the unique photophysical properties, the ease of synthesis and structural robustness make tetracoordinate boron complexes ideal for a variety of applications. While significant light has been thrown on their luminescence properties, there is no collective attention to their supramolecular chemistry. Read More

Objective: The complex anatomical structures of cerebellopontine angle (CPA) pose a unique challenge to diffusion weighed imaging (DWI). This study aimed to compare the clinical utility of the prototypic 2D turbo gradient- and spin echo-BLADE-DWI (TGSE-BLADE-DWI) with that of readout-segmented echo-planar DWI (RESOLVE-DWI) and single-shot echo-planar DWI (SS-EPI-DWI) to visualize CPA anatomic structures and identify CPA tumors.Methods: A total of 8 volunteers and 36 patients with pathological CPA tumors were enrolled to perform the three DWI sequences at 3 T.

Background: Existing mortality prediction models have attempted to quantify injury burden following trauma-related admissions with the most notable being the Injury Severity Score (ISS). Although easy to calculate, it requires additional administrative coding. International Classification of Diseases (ICD)-based models such as the Trauma Mortality Prediction Model (TMPM-ICD10) circumvent these limitations, but they utilize linear modeling which may not adequately capture the intricate relationships of injuries on mortality.

Background: The prevalence of syphilis is increasing in many countries, including the USA. The ED is often used by underserved populations, making it an important setting to test and treat patients who are not evaluated in outpatient clinical settings. We aimed to assess the utility of an ED-based syphilis and gonorrhoea/chlamydia cotesting protocol by comparing testing practices before and after its implementation. Read More
