Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Kirchhoff-Institute for Physics, Heidelberg University, 69120 Heidelberg, Germany.

Radiometric dating with Ar covers a unique time span and offers key advances in interpreting environmental archives of the last millennium. Although this tracer has been acknowledged for decades, studies so far have been limited by the low abundance and radioactivity, thus requiring huge sample sizes. Atom trap trace analysis, an application of techniques from quantum physics such as laser cooling and trapping, allows us to reduce the sample volume by several orders of magnitude compared with conventional techniques.

Fibro-osseous Pseudotumor of digits and myositis Ossificans show consistent COL1A1-USP6 rearrangement: a Clinicopathological and genetic study of 27 cases.

Hum Pathol 2019 Apr 1. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Šikl's Department of Pathology, Charles University in Prague, The Faculty of Medicine and Faculty Hospital in Pilsen, Alej Svobody 80, 304 60 Pilsen, Czech Republic; Bioptická laboratoř s.r.o., Mikulášske nám. 4, 326 00, Pilsen.

Myositis ossificans (MO) and fibro-osseous pseudotumor of digits (FOPD) are localized, self-limiting bone-producing pseudosarcomatous lesions characterized by nodular fasciitis-like proliferation and osteoid and immature woven bone production, which may eventually develop into more mature lamelar bone. Traditionally, MO/FOPD were thought to be of reactive, non-neoplastic nature. USP6 gene rearrangement was recently reported as a consistent finding in MO and FOPD, thus expanding the spectrum of transient, USP6-rearranged neoplasms. Read More

J Chem Inf Model 2019 Apr 3. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research , 5300 Chiron Way , Emeryville , California 94608 , United States.

The success of hit-finding campaigns relies on many factors, including the quality and diversity of the set of compounds that is selected for screening. This paper presents a generalized workflow that guides compound selections from large compound archives with opportunities to bias the selections with available knowledge in order to improve hit quality while still effectively sampling the accessible chemical space. An optional flag in the workflow supports an explicit complement design function where diversity selections complement a given core set of compounds. Read More

The Right to Know? The Politics of Information about Contraception in France (1950s-80s).

Authors:
Bibia Pavard

Med Hist 2019 Apr;63(2):173-188

In 1920 in France, a law was passed prohibiting abortion, the sale of contraceptives and 'anti-conception propaganda'. While contraception was legalised in 1967 and abortion in 1975, 'anti-natalist propaganda' remained forbidden. This article takes seriously the aim of the French state to prevent the circulation of information for demographic reasons. Read More

English Women Doctors, Contraception and Family Planning in Transnational Perspective (1930s-70s).

Med Hist 2019 Apr;63(2):153-172

This paper explores the influence of English female doctors on the creation of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and the production and circulation of contraceptive knowledge in England and, to a lesser extent in France, between 1930 and 1970. By drawing on the writings of female doctors and proceedings of international conferences as well as the archives of the British Medical Women's Federation (MWF) and Family Planning Association (FPA), on the one hand, and Mouvement Français pour le Planning Familial (MFPF), on the other, this paper explores the agency of English female doctors at the national and transnational level. I recover their pioneering work and argue that they were pivotal in legitimising family planning within medical circles. Read More

Nursing in the Midwestern Flood.

Authors:

Am J Nurs 2019 Apr;119(4):61-62

: Editor's note: From its first issue in 1900 through to the present day, AJN has unparalleled archives detailing nurses' work and lives over more than a century. These articles not only chronicle nursing's growth as a profession within the context of the events of the day, but they also reveal prevailing societal attitudes about women, health care, and human rights. Today's nursing school curricula rarely include nursing's history, but it's a history worth knowing. Read More

Direct Injection Liquid Chromatography High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry for Determination of Primary and Secondary Terrestrial and Marine Biomarkers in Ice Cores.

Anal Chem 2019 Apr 29;91(8):5051-5057. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Department of Chemistry , University of Cambridge , Lensfield Road , Cambridge CB2 1EW , United Kingdom.

Many atmospheric organic compounds are long-lived enough to be transported from their sources to polar regions and high mountain environments where they can be trapped in ice archives. While inorganic components in ice archives have been studied extensively to identify past climate changes, organic compounds have rarely been used to assess paleo-environmental changes, mainly due to the lack of suitable analytical methods. This study presents a new method of direct injection high performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS) analysis, without the need of preconcentrating the melted ice, for the determination of a series of novel biomarkers in ice core samples indicative of primary and secondary terrestrial and marine organic aerosol sources.
