Bioarchaeological and palaeogenomic portrait of two Pompeians that died during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Sci Rep 2022 05 26;12(1):6468. Epub 2022 May 26.

Laboratory of Molecular Psychiatry, Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, University of California, Irvine, CA, 92868, USA.

The archaeological site of Pompeii is one of the 54 UNESCO World Heritage sites in Italy, thanks to its uniqueness: the town was completely destroyed and buried by a Vesuvius' eruption in 79 AD. In this work, we present a multidisciplinary approach with bioarchaeological and palaeogenomic analyses of two Pompeian human remains from the Casa del Fabbro. We have been able to characterize the genetic profile of the first Pompeian' genome, which has strong affinities with the surrounding central Italian population from the Roman Imperial Age.

Front Nutr 2022 27;9:740459. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Department of Orthopedics, The First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China.

Objective: To explore the risk factors of hypoalbuminemia in patients with thoracic and lumbar tuberculosis and develop a scoring scale, according to which the patients with thoracic and lumbar tuberculosis were divided into 2 groups to, respectively calculate the perioperative albumin changes and to find out the preoperative albumin recommended value.
