Target verification of allyl isothiocyanate on the core subunits of cytochrome c oxidase in Sitophilus zeamais by RNAi.

Pest Manag Sci 2021 Mar 4;77(3):1292-1302. Epub 2020 Nov 4.

College of Plant Protection, Northwest A&F University, Yangling, China.

Background: Allyl isothiocyanate (AITC) is a volatile organic compound with a potent insecticidal activity to the stored-grain pest Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky, which severely damages grain storage and container transport worldwide. Our previous study showed that mitochondrial complex IV was the primary target of AITC in adult Sitophilus zeamais. To further verify the targets of AITC, we employed RNA interference (RNAi) by using double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) to knockdown three core subunits of cytochrome c oxidase (COX)-I, -II and -III in 18-day-old larvae prior to their exposure to AITC to detect susceptibility changes.

Case Rep Urol 2020 22;2020:8853473. Epub 2020 Jul 22.

Department of Urology, Colombo North Teaching Hospital, Ragama, Sri Lanka.

Chyluria has become a rare clinical presentation in Sri Lanka, which may have a direct correlation with the low prevalence of lymphatic filariasis following the use of diethylcarbamazine and albendazole mass drug administration (MDA) for five rounds between 2002 and 2006. Here we report a 50-year-old male who presented with milky urine and progressive weight loss, diagnosed as having nonparasitic chyluria. The patient was initially managed with a trail of diethylcarbamazine (DEC) 6 mg/kg/day for 21 days and a low-fat diet with an unsatisfactory response. Read More

Centre of Excellence for All-Sky Astrophysics in Three Dimensions (ASTRO 3D), Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Globular clusters are some of the oldest bound stellar structures observed in the Universe. They are ubiquitous in large galaxies and are believed to trace intense star-formation events and the hierarchical build-up of structure. Observations of globular clusters in the Milky Way, and a wide variety of other galaxies, have found evidence for a 'metallicity floor', whereby no globular clusters are found with chemical (metal) abundances below approximately 0.

Scalp Intravenous Catheter Infiltration Leading to Subdural and Intraparenchymal Fluid Collection and Severe Neurologic Sequelae: A Case Report.

Perm J 2019 ;23

University of California Irvine Medical Center, Orange.

Introduction: Preterm infants require intravenous (IV) access for administration of medications, IV fluids, and parenteral nutrition. The scalp is a common site for obtaining IV access, and in children with hydrocephalus or wide fontanelles and sutures, there is a high probability of penetrating the meninges and brain matter with the scalp IV needle. If this penetration occurs and remains unnoticed, the contents of the IV infusion can infiltrate into the brain and cause severe brain damage. Read More

Background: In the primary analysis of the Aspirin in Reducing Events in the Elderly (ASPREE) trial, now published in the Journal, we report that the daily use of aspirin did not provide a benefit with regard to the primary end point of disability-free survival among older adults. A numerically higher rate of the secondary end point of death from any cause was observed with aspirin than with placebo.
