Quantum dot therapeutics: a new class of radical therapies.

J Biol Eng 2019 29;13:48. Epub 2019 May 29.

1Chemical and Biological Engineering, University of Colorado Boulder, Boulder, CO 80303 USA.

Traditional therapeutics and vaccines represent the bedrock of modern medicine, where isolated biochemical molecules or designed proteins have led to success in treating and preventing diseases. However, several adaptive pathogens, such as multidrug-resistant (MDR) superbugs, and rapidly evolving diseases, such as cancer, can evade such molecules very effectively. This poses an important problem since the rapid emergence of multidrug-resistance among microbes is one of the most pressing public health crises of our time-one that could claim more than 10 million lives and 100 trillion dollars annually by 2050.

Seekers, Finders, Settlers, and Stumblers: Identifying the Career Paths of Males in the Genetic Counseling Profession.

J Genet Couns 2017 Oct 14;26(5):948-962. Epub 2017 Mar 14.

Department of Genetics, Cell Biology, and Development, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA.

Genetic counseling is a female-dominated profession, with 96% of counselors self-identifying as female. Research suggests gender diversification benefits healthcare professionals and the populations they serve. Therefore, this study explored how men choose a genetic counseling career, associations between career satisfaction and their career entry dynamics and experience levels, and differences due to experience level in how they decide on this profession.

Helicobacter pylori treatment: New perspectives using current experience.

J Glob Antimicrob Resist 2017 03 25;8:123-130. Epub 2017 Jan 25.

Department of Bacteriology, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Tarbiat Modares University, P.O. Box 14115-111, Tehran, Iran. Electronic address:

Infection with Helicobacter pylori plays an essential role in the development of duodenal and gastric ulcers as well as in the pathobiology of gastric adenocarcinoma. Thus, successful elimination of the bacterium can reduce the risk of development of these diseases. Currently, most guidelines recommend standard triple therapy (amoxicillin+clarithromycin+proton pump inhibitor), although its efficacy is rapidly falling. Read More

Stoves or Sugar? Willingness to Adopt Improved Cookstoves in Malawi.

Energy Policy 2016 May 17;92:409-419. Epub 2016 Feb 17.

Center for Agricultural Research and Development, Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources, P.O. Box 219, Lilongwe, Malawi.

Malawi has set a target of adoption of two million improved cookstoves (ICS) by 2020. Meeting this objective requires knowledge about determinants of adoption, particularly in rural areas where the cost of traditional cooking technologies and fuels are non-monetary, and where people have limited capacity to purchase an ICS. We conducted a discrete choice experiment with 383 households in rural Malawi asking them if they would chose a locally made ICS or a package of sugar and salt of roughly equal value. Read More

Color perception influences microhabitat selection of refugia and affects monitoring success for a cryptic anuran species.

Physiol Behav 2016 10 25;164(Pt A):54-7. Epub 2016 May 25.

Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, University of Georgia, 180 E. Green St, Athens, GA 30602, United States.

Perceptual-biases are important for understanding an animal's natural history, identifying potential ecological traps, and for developing effective means to monitor individuals and populations. Despite research demonstrating anurans having a positive phototactic response towards blue colors, we do not yet understand if color cues are used functionally beyond sexual selection. The aim of our study was to determine if color cues are used in selecting microhabitat, and if anuran's blue-positive phototactic response could increase selection of artificial PVC refugia used to monitor cryptic camouflaging anuran species.

The unique context for this study was the merging of the community health officer and nursing curricula, which suddenly brought men enrolled in the former curricula with the all-female nursing student body. The study was carried out with 15 new Turkish male nursing students. Read More

Simulated efficiency of range beef production. III. Culling strategies and nontraditional management systems.

J Anim Sci 1987 Oct;65(4):963-9

Colorado State University, Fort Collins 80523.

A modified version of the Texas A&M Beef Cattle Production Model was used to simulate life-cycle biological and economic efficiency of various culling strategies and non-traditional management systems in a northern plains, range environment. Biological efficiency was defined as the ratio of TDN input (kg) to product output (kg), and economic efficiency was defined as the ratio of cost ($) to product output (100 kg), where products were live weight at weaning (LWW), empty body weight at slaughter (EBW) and fat-free weight at slaughter (FFW). Several economic scenarios were simulated. Read More
