Single-Domain Antibodies for the Detection of SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid Protein.

Anal Chem 2021 May 6. Epub 2021 May 6.

Center for Biomolecular Science and Engineering, US Naval Research Laboratory, 4555 Overlook Avenue SW, Washington, District of Columbia 20375, United States.

The goal of this work was to develop recombinantly expressed variable domains derived from camelid heavy-chain antibodies known as single-domain antibodies (sdAbs) directed against the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein for incorporation into detection assays. To achieve this, a llama was immunized using a recombinant SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein and an immune phage-display library of variable domains was developed. The sdAbs selected from this library segregated into five distinct sequence families. Read More

Keeping Safe on Australian Roads: Overview of Key Determinants of Risky Driving, Passenger Injury, and Fatalities for Indigenous Populations.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2021 03 2;18(5). Epub 2021 Mar 2.

Vice-Chancellor's Division, The University of Newcastle, Callaghan, NSW 2308, Australia.

Social and cultural barriers associated with inequitable access to driver licensing and associated road safety education, as well as socioeconomic issues that preclude ongoing vehicle maintenance and registration, result in unsafe in-car behaviours such as passenger overcrowding. This in turn is associated with improper seatbelt usage, noncompliance with child restraint mandates, and driver distraction. For example, in Australia, where seatbelt use is mandatory, Indigenous road users are three times less likely to wear seatbelts than non-Indigenous road users. Read More

Accid Anal Prev 2021 May 24;154:106089. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

School of Civil Engineering and Transportation, South China University of Technology, Guangzhou, Guangdong, 510641, PR China. Electronic address:

In previous research, the effects of commercial vehicle proportions (CVP) on overall crash propensity have been found to be significant, but the results have been varied in terms of the effect direction. In addition, the mediating or moderating effects of roadway attributes on the CVP-vs-safety relationships, have not been investigated. In addressing this gap in the literature, this study integrates databases on crashes, traffic, and inventory for Hong Kong road segments spanning 2014-2017. Read More

The antitumor capacity of mesothelin-CAR-T cells in targeting solid tumors in mice.

Mol Ther Oncolytics 2021 Mar 24;20:556-568. Epub 2021 Feb 24.

Shanghai Yihao Biological Technology, Co., Ltd., Shanghai 200231, China.

Since the approval of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy targeting CD19 by the FDA, CAR-T cell therapy has received increasing attention as a new method for targeting tumors. Although CAR-T cell therapy has a good effect against hematological malignancies, it has been less effective against solid tumors. In the present study, we selected mesothelin (MSLN/MESO) as a target for CAR-T cells because it is highly expressed by solid tumors but only expressed at low levels by normal tissues. Read More

Accid Anal Prev 2021 May 11;154:106066. Epub 2021 Mar 11.

Department of Epidemiology, West Virginia University School of Public Health, United States.

Accurate and reliable information on drug use by road users is essential to inform safety policy development but the reliability of national data has been questioned. There are two primary repositories of drug test information from fatal motor vehicle crashes in Maryland: (1) the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), which is a national crash database managed by the US Department of Transportation, and (2) the Maryland Medical Examiner (ME). In this study, we compared drug test information for people killed in crashes in Maryland between the FARS system and ME from 2006 - 2018. Read More

Helminth infracommunity in a maned wolf, Chrysocyon brachyurus, from the humid Chaco, Argentina.

Parasitol Int 2021 Jun 16;82:102303. Epub 2021 Feb 16.

Estación Biológica Corrientes (EBCo), CCT Nordeste CONICET, Nuestra Señora de Lourdes 1200, 3401 San Cayetano, Corrientes, Argentina.

Parasitism is an important factor in conservation worldwide, especially for endangered species, as it can affect host populations by reducing growth rates, fecundity and affecting nutritional status. The maned wolf Chrysocyon brachyurus, a near-threatened species, is distributed across different habitats from the south Amazonian forest in Brazil to northern Argentina, Paraguay and eastern Bolivia. Most studies on gastrointestinal parasites in wild maned wolves are based on coprological findings, and there is little information about adult parasites and parasite species richness. Read More

J Wildl Dis 2020 10;56(4):781-790

Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife, 317 W Prospect Road, Fort Collins, Colorado 80526-2097, USA.

The emergence of chronic wasting disease, an infectious prion disease of multiple deer species, has motivated international calls for sustainable, socially accepted control measures. Here, we describe long-term, spatially replicated relationships in Colorado, US, mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) herds that show hunting pressure can modulate apparent epidemic dynamics as reflected by prevalence trends. Across 12 areas in Colorado studied between 2002-18, those with the largest declines in annual hunting license numbers (pressure) showed the largest increases in the proportion of infected adult (≥2-yr-old) male deer killed by hunters (prevalence); prevalence trends were comparatively flat in most areas where license numbers had been maintained or increased.
