Gut microbiota diversity associates with cardiorespiratory fitness in post-primary treatment breast cancer survivors.

Exp Physiol 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Nutrition Sciences, University of Alabama at Birmingham.

New Findings: What is the central question of this study? Does the link between cardiorespiratory fitness and gut microbiota diversity persist after adjusting for the potential effects of %body fat and activity-related energy expenditure (AEE)? What is the main finding and its importance? This is the first study to examine the link between cardiorespiratory fitness and gut microbiota diversity while accounting for the underlying effects of %body fat and free-living AEE. Results from the present work suggest cardiorespiratory fitness, not physical activity, is a superior correlate of gut microbiota diversity among post-primary treatment, non-metastatic breast cancer survivors.

Abstract: Cancer treatment uniquely triggers multiple physiologic shifts detrimental to overall health. Read More

Positive psychological states in the arc from mindfulness to self-transcendence: extensions of the Mindfulness-to-Meaning Theory and applications to addiction and chronic pain treatment.

Curr Opin Psychol 2019 Jan 14;28:184-191. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, United States.

The Mindfulness-to-Meaning Theory (MMT) is a temporally dynamic process model of mindful positive emotion regulation that elucidates downstream cognitive-affective mechanisms by which mindfulness promotes health and resilience. Here we review and extend the MMT to explicate how mindfulness fosters self-transcendence by evoking upward spirals of decentering, attentional broadening, reappraisal, and savoring. Savoring is highlighted as a key, potential means of inducing absorptive experiences of oneness between subject and object, amplifying the salience of the object while imbuing the sensory-perceptual field with affective meaning.

Analysis of the relationship of extracellular polymeric substances to the dewaterability and rheological properties of sludge treated by acidification and anaerobic mesophilic digestion.

J Hazard Mater 2019 Feb 5;369:31-39. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

School of Environmental Science and Engineering, Institute of Environmental Health and Pollution Control, Guangdong University of Technology, Guangzhou 510006, China.

The initial pH value of sludge affects sludge anaerobic digestion and dewatering performance. In order to determine the suitable pH value and decrease the sludge digestion time, in this study, the effect and the mechanism of combined acidification and anaerobic mesophilic digestion (acid-AMD) on sludge dewaterability were investigated. The changes and relationships among the extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), physicochemical properties, and rheological behavior of the treated sludge were analyzed. Read More

Understanding the interaction of carbon quantum dots with CuO and CuO by fluorescence quenching.

J Hazard Mater 2019 Feb 4;369:17-24. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Dental Biomaterials Research Chair, Dental Health Department, College of Applied Medical Sciences, King Saud University, Riyadh, 11433, Saudi Arabia.

In spite copper oxide being one of the essential micronutrient, copper oxide in its nano size is found to be toxic in nature; this instigates for the detection of copper oxides in trace levels. In the present study, we demonstrate simple cost effective detection method for CuO/CuO using carbon quantum dots (CQD) by fluorescence quenching technique. CuO/CuO nanoparticles are synthesised by mere variation of fuel ratio by solution combustion technique. Read More

Quality of Life Related to Oral Health and its Impact in Adults.

J Stomatol Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

MD DDS, PhD. Doctor, Specialist in Stomatology. Professor of Oral Pathology, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (School of Dentistry), Oral Health and Masticatory System Group (Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute), IDIBELL, University of Barcelona, Departament of OdontoestomatologySecond Floor, Room 2.32, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences - School of Dentistry Campus Bellvitge, University of Barcelona, Spain.

Oral health is part of general health, and is recognized as an essential component of quality of life (QoL). For years, oral health was determined solely by the clinic, which did not allow an evaluation of the true impact of oral diseases on the patients' daily lives. The development of instruments for assessing QoL related to oral health has occurred due to the urgency of determining the effects of changes in the oral cavity of individuals. Read More

Scavenger Receptor Class A1 Mediates Uptake of Morpholino Antisense Oligonucleotide into Dystrophic Skeletal Muscle.

Mol Ther Nucleic Acids 2019 Jan 25;14:520-535. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Molecular Therapy, National Institute of Neuroscience, National Center of Neurology and Psychiatry, Kodaira, Tokyo 187-8502, Japan. Electronic address:

Exon skipping using phosphorodiamidate morpholino oligomers (PMOs) is a promising treatment strategy for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). The most significant limitation of these clinically used compounds is their lack of delivery systems that target muscles; thus, cell-penetrating peptides are being developed to enhance uptake into muscles. Recently, we reported that uptake of peptide-conjugated PMOs into myofibers was mediated by scavenger receptor class A (SR-A), which binds negatively charged ligands. Read More

Macronutrients and the adipose-liver axis in obesity and fatty liver.

Cell Mol Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Medicine and Liver Center, University of California, San Francisco.

Macronutrient metabolism is a highly orchestrated process, with adipose tissue and liver each playing central roles in nutrient uptake, processing, transport and storage. These two tissues form an important metabolic circuit -- particularly as it relates to lipids as the primary storage form of excess energy. The function of the circuit is influenced by many factors, including the quantity and type of nutrients consumed and their impact on the overall health of the tissues. Read More

HLA-G allelic distribution in Sardinian children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: a replication study.

Brain Behav Immun 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

IRCCS Fondazione Don Carlo Gnocchi, Milano, Italy; Pathophysiology and Transplantation, University of Milano, Milano, Italy.

Recent results show that in mainland Italian children with Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), HLA-G coding alleles distribution is skewed and an association between HLA-G*01:05N and ASD is present. Herein, in an independent cohort of Sardinian ASD (sASD) children and their relatives, we verify whether HLA-G allele association with ASD could be confirmed in this genetically peculiar insular population. One hundred children with a diagnosis of ASD, born in Sardinia and of Sardinian descent, 91 of their mothers, and 40 of their healthy siblings were enrolled. Read More
