The Contribution of Socioeconomic Status to Children's Performance on Three Grammatical Measures in the Edmonton Narrative Norms Instrument.

J Speech Lang Hear Res 2021 Jun 22:1-10. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences, University at Buffalo, NY.

Purpose The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relative contribution of socioeconomic status (SES) on three grammatical measures-finite verb morphology composite (FVMC), percent grammatical utterances (PGU), and clausal density-in children between the ages of 4 and 9 years. Method Data for this study were from the normative sample in the Edmonton Narrative Norms Instrument. For 359 children, hierarchical linear regression was performed to evaluate the amount of variance in FVMC, PGU, and clausal density that was uniquely explained by SES after accounting for child chronological age and language status (typical, impaired).

Speech Movement Variability in People Who Stutter: A Vocal Tract Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study.

J Speech Lang Hear Res 2021 Jun 22:1-15. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, Department of Experimental Psychology, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, University of Oxford, United Kingdom.

Purpose People who stutter (PWS) have more unstable speech motor systems than people who are typically fluent (PWTF). Here, we used real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the vocal tract to assess variability and duration of movements of different articulators in PWS and PWTF during fluent speech production. Method The vocal tracts of 28 adults with moderate to severe stuttering and 20 PWTF were scanned using MRI while repeating simple and complex pseudowords. Read More

J Endocrinol 2021 Jun 1. Epub 2021 Jun 1.

N Sugino, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Yamaguchi University School of Medicine Graduate School of Medicine, Ube, Japan.

Women usually experience body weight gain with aging, which can put them at risk for many chronic diseases. Previous studies indicated that melatonin treatment attenuates body weight gain and abdominal fat deposition in several male animals. However, it is unclear whether melatonin affects female animals in the same way. Read More

Low EVI1 expression at diagnosis predicted poor outcomes in pediatric Ph-negative B cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia patients.

Pediatr Hematol Oncol 2021 Jun 22:1-11. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Peking University People's Hospital, Peking University Institute of Hematology, National Clinical Research Center for Hematologic Disease, Beijing, China.

Abnormally high ecotropic viral integration site 1 (EVI1) expression has been recognized as a poor prognostic factor in acute myeloid leukemia patients. However, its prognostic impact in B cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (BCP-ALL) remains unknown. A total of 176 pediatric Ph-negative BCP-ALL patients who received at least 1 course of chemotherapy and received chemotherapy only during follow-up were retrospectively tested for EVI1 transcript levels by real-time quantitative PCR at diagnosis, and survival analysis was performed.

Compilation of selenium metabolites data in selenized yeasts.

Metallomics 2021 Jun 22. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

National Research Council Canada, 1200 Montreal Road, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Selenium-enriched yeast has long been recognized as an important nutritional source of selenium and studies have suggested that supplementation with this material provides chemo-preventative benefits beyond those observed for selenomethionine supplementation, despite the fact that selenomethionine accounts for 60-84% of the total selenium in selenized yeasts. There is much ongoing research into the characterization of the species comprising the remaining 16-40% of the selenium, with nearly 100 unique selenium-containing metabolites identified in aqueous extracts of selenized yeasts (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). Herein, we discuss the analytical approaches involved in the identification and quantification of these metabolites, and present a recently created online database (DOI: 10. Read More

Identification and characterization of extracellular enzymes secreted by Aspergillus spp. involved in lipolysis and lipid-antioxidation during katsuobushi fermentation and ripening.

Int J Food Microbiol 2021 Jun 15;353:109299. Epub 2021 Jun 15.

Marutomo Co., Ltd., 1696 Kominato, Iyo, Ehime 799-3192, Japan.

A mild-flavored soup stock made from katsuobushi is an important element of traditional Japanese cuisine and is the basic seasoning responsible for the taste. Fermented and ripened katsuobushi, known as karebushi, is manufactured by simmering skipjack tuna that is then smoke-dried, fermented, and ripened in a repeated molding process by five dominant Aspergillus species. Here, our aim was to characterize and identify the lipolytic enzymes secreted by the dominant Aspergillus species, especially A. Read More

Transitioning Speech-Language Assessment to a Virtual Environment: Lessons Learned From the ELLA Study.

Lang Speech Hear Serv Sch 2021 Jun 21:1-7. Epub 2021 Jun 21.

Davies School of Communication Sciences & Disorders, Texas Christian University, Fort Worth.

Purpose The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated a quick shift to virtual speech-language services; however, only a small percentage of speech-language pathologists (SLPs) had previously engaged in telepractice. The purpose of this clinical tutorial is (a) to describe how the Early Language and Literacy Acquisition in Children with Hearing Loss study, a longitudinal study involving speech-language assessment with children with and without hearing loss, transitioned from in-person to virtual assessment and (b) to provide tips for optimizing virtual assessment procedures. Method We provide an overview of our decision making during the transition to virtual assessment. Read More

ChemBioSim: Enhancing Conformal Prediction of In Vivo Toxicity by Use of Predicted Bioactivities.

J Chem Inf Model 2021 Jun 21. Epub 2021 Jun 21.

BASF SE, Ludwigshafen am Rhein 67063, Germany.

Computational methods such as machine learning approaches have a strong track record of success in predicting the outcomes of in vitro assays. In contrast, their ability to predict in vivo endpoints is more limited due to the high number of parameters and processes that may influence the outcome. Recent studies have shown that the combination of chemical and biological data can yield better models for in vivo endpoints. Read More

School of Social and Behavioral Health Sciences, Hallie E Ford Center for Healthy Children and Families, College of Public Health and Human Sciences, Oregon State University, 410 Waldo Hall, Corvallis, OR, 97331, USA.

PrEP adoption among African-American men-who-have-sex-with-men (AAMSM) remains low. We applied Diffusion-of-Innovations (DOI) theory to understand PrEP adoption processes among young HIV-negative/status unknown AAMSM (AAYMSM; N = 181; 17-24 years). Quantitative and qualitative analyses were used to examine predictors of PrEP diffusion stages. Read More

Prenatal Lead (Pb) Exposure and Peripheral Blood DNA Methylation (5mC) and Hydroxymethylation (5hmC) in Mexican Adolescents from the ELEMENT Birth Cohort.

Environ Health Perspect 2021 Jun 21;129(6):67002. Epub 2021 Jun 21.

Department of Environmental Health Sciences, University of Michigan School of Public Health, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.

Background: Gestational lead (Pb) exposure can adversely affect offspring health through multiple mechanisms, including epigenomic alterations via DNA methylation (5mC) and hydroxymethylation (5hmC), an intermediate in oxidative demethylation. Most current methods do not distinguish between 5mC and 5hmC, limiting insights into their individual roles.

Objective: Our study sought to identify the association of trimester-specific (T1, T2, T3) prenatal Pb exposure with 5mC and 5hmC levels at multiple cytosine-phosphate-guanine sites within gene regions previously associated with prenatal Pb (, , , in whole blood leukocytes of children ages 11-18 years of age.
