EVA technology and proteomics: a two-pronged attack on Cultural Heritage.

J Proteome Res 2020 May 22. Epub 2020 May 22.

A novel way for exploring the world Cultural Heritage in the absence of damage or contamination of the items under investigation is here reported, called the EVA technique. It is based on films of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) impregnated with strong anion and cation exchangers, admixed with hydrophobic resins, C8 and C18. When in contact with any surface these films can harvest nano-moles of macromolecules (proteins and DNA) as well as metabolites, which can then be identified by standard instrumentation. Read More

Data Brief 2020 Jun 30;30:105633. Epub 2020 Apr 30.

Stable Isotopes Research Group and Water Resources Management Laboratory, Universidad Nacional, Heredia 86-3000, Costa Rica.

Under a changing climate, projections estimate that over the next thirty years, extreme Tropical Cyclones (TCs) will increase in frequency, with two to three times more Category 4 and 5 hurricanes in the Atlantic basin between 20°N and 40°N. In recent years, the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean basins have experienced several extreme TCs, resulting in extensive human, ecological, and economic damage [1], [2], [3]. To improve understanding of TCs and their potential impacts in the face of climate change, physically based understanding of past climate and modern TC dynamics is necessary. Read More

Hum Pathol 2020 May 13. Epub 2020 May 13.

Department of Pathology, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma (SNUC) is an aggressive malignancy with a poor prognosis, and pathologically, is a diagnosis of exclusion. Rendering this diagnosis can be challenging in practice because of the large number of diverse entities in the differential diagnosis. We encountered an index case of a sinonasal carcinoma otherwise diagnosable as SNUC which, upon further investigation, demonstrated strong and diffuse P16 expression, as well as diffuse expression of high risk HPV (hrHPV) RNA by in-situ hybridization (ISH).

Hum Pathol 2020 May 13. Epub 2020 May 13.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA.

Acinic cell carcinoma of the salivary gland (ACC-SG) is characterized by a recurrent chromosomal rearrangement (t(4;9)(q13;q31)) that upregulates the transcription factor NR4A3. Studies conducted on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue have found that nuclear expression of a monoclonal antibody NR4A3 (NOR-1) is a sensitive and specific diagnostic marker for ACC-SG. The aims of this study were to evaluate the performance of the NOR1 antibody and to compare its utility in separating ACC-SG from its mimics on cytology cell block specimens. Read More

Sci Rep 2020 May 12;10(1):7870. Epub 2020 May 12.

Computational Neuroscience Lab, Institute of Computer Science, University of Tartu, Tartu, Estonia.

Human brain has developed mechanisms to efficiently decode sensory information according to perceptual categories of high prevalence in the environment, such as faces, symbols, objects. Neural activity produced within localized brain networks has been associated with the process that integrates both sensory bottom-up and cognitive top-down information processing. Yet, how specifically the different types and components of neural responses reflect the local networks' selectivity for categorical information processing is still unknown. Read More

Caribou in the cross-fire? Considering terrestrial lichen forage in the face of mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) expansion.

PLoS One 2020 30;15(4):e0232248. Epub 2020 Apr 30.

Caribou Program, fRI Research, Hinton, Alberta, Canada.

Mountain pine beetle (MPB) has become an invasive forest pest of mature pine in western North America as it spreads beyond its former endemic range. Management actions such as timber harvest can reduce the spread of MPB but may affect species of conservation concern like woodland caribou. Our goal was to inform MPB management within caribou ranges by exploring the impacts of MPB on caribou habitat-focusing on terrestrial lichens, an important winter food for caribou. Read More

To Petabytes and beyond: recent advances in probabilistic and signal processing algorithms and their application to metagenomics.

Nucleic Acids Res 2020 Apr 27. Epub 2020 Apr 27.

Department of Computer Science, Houston, TX 77005, USA.

As computational biologists continue to be inundated by ever increasing amounts of metagenomic data, the need for data analysis approaches that keep up with the pace of sequence archives has remained a challenge. In recent years, the accelerated pace of genomic data availability has been accompanied by the application of a wide array of highly efficient approaches from other fields to the field of metagenomics. For instance, sketching algorithms such as MinHash have seen a rapid and widespread adoption. Read More

Lucie Gerber

J Hist Behav Sci 2020 Apr 23. Epub 2020 Apr 23.

Department of the History of Medicine, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore.

Drawing on the archives of American learning psychologist Neal E. Miller, this article investigates the role of instrumentation in the expansion and diversification of the behavior therapy domain from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. Through the case of Miller's research on the use of biofeedback to treat idiopathic scoliosis, it argues that the post-World War II adoption of electronic technology by behavioral psychologists contributed to extending their subject matter to include physiological processes and somatic conditions.

Childbirth Injuries: an issue fraught with risks from the health care and medicolegal perspectives.

Clin Ter 2020 May-Jun;171(3):e229-e234

Department of Anatomical, Histological, Forensic and Orthopedic Sciences, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Birth injuries caused by medical negligence are a real threat for mothers and their children, which can entail catastrophic, life-changing consequences, permanent disability, or even death. Families almost always seek redress from doctors and/or facilities, but in order for a birth injury malpractice claim to be successful, it needs to be proven that the medical care providers owed a duty to the child and that they were derelict in that duty and did not meet the proper standard of care; Furthermore, a causal relationship needs to be established between injury sustained by the child and the physician's or provider's breach of duty to the child. Relevant scientific articles have been collected by drawing upon medical search engines and archives such as Medline, Cochrane Central, Scopus, Web of Science, Science Direct, EMBASE and Google Scholar, through December 2019, using keywords such as "birth injuries", "malpractice", "claims".
