Decadal variations in natural and anthropogenic aerosol optical depth over the Bay of Bengal: the influence of pollutants from Indo-GangeticPlain.

Environ Sci Pollut Res Int 2021 Jun 15. Epub 2021 Jun 15.

CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography, 176 Lawsons Bay Colony, Visakhapatnam, 530017, India.

Perennial increase in atmospheric pollution over the Bay of Bengal (BoB) and South China Sea is reported due to increase in human population and industrial activity in South and Southeast Asia. Based on total aerosol optical depth (AOD) derived from MODIS (moderate resolution imaging resolution imaging spectroradiometer), natural and anthropogenic fractions were derived. The seasonality and spatial variability in rate of increase in total, natural, and anthropogenic AOD fractions were examined over the BoB using data collected between 2001 and 2019. Read More

What type of exercise is most effective for people with knee osteoarthritis and co-morbid obesity?: The TARGET randomized controlled trial.

Osteoarthritis Cartilage 2020 06 19;28(6):755-765. Epub 2020 Mar 19.

The University of Melbourne, Centre for Health, Exercise and Sports Medicine, Department of Physiotherapy, School of Health Sciences, Melbourne, VIC, Australia. Electronic address:

Objective: Different exercise types may yield different outcomes in osteoarthritis (OA) subgroups. The objective was to directly compare effectiveness of two exercise programs for people with medial knee OA and co-morbid obesity.

Design: We performed a participant- and assessor-blinded randomized controlled trial. Read More

A NWB-based dataset and processing pipeline of human single-neuron activity during a declarative memory task.

Sci Data 2020 03 4;7(1):78. Epub 2020 Mar 4.

Department of Neurosurgery, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

A challenge for data sharing in systems neuroscience is the multitude of different data formats used. Neurodata Without Borders: Neurophysiology 2.0 (NWB:N) has emerged as a standardized data format for the storage of cellular-level data together with meta-data, stimulus information, and behavior.

[Treatment of traumatic prosthetic stomatitis in elderly and senium people with 'dry mouth' syndrome].

Stomatologiia (Mosk) 2018;97(3):30-34

St. Petersburg Institute of Bioregulation and gerontology of NWB RAMS, Russia, 197110, Saint-Petersburg, Dynamo PR., 3; Department of maxillofacial surgery and surgical dentistry FGOU VPO 'Military medical Academy named after S. M. Kirov' Ministry of defence of Russia, Russia, 194044, Saint-Petersburg, Acad. Lebedeva, 6.

There was clinical observation of the treatment of traumatic prosthetic stomatitis in 44 people (9 men and 35 women) aged 61 and 82 years suffering from 'dry mouth' syndrome due to radiation and (or) drug sialoadenopathies developed after combined treatment of malignant neoplasms of the organs of the oropharyngeal zone. Using semi-quantitative method, a comparative evaluation of the effectiveness of a new drug based on chelate organic germanium guanine complex, sodium alginate and xylitol (main study group) and previously used drug (control group) for local therapy of traumatic lesions of the oral mucosa was made. It was found that on day 9 in the main study group the effectiveness of treatment was significantly higher (95. Read More

Energetic costs of mange in wolves estimated from infrared thermography.

Ecology 2016 Aug;97(8):1938-1948

Yellowstone Wolf Project, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA.

Parasites, by definition, extract energy from their hosts and thus affect trophic and food web dynamics even when the parasite may have limited effects on host population size. We studied the energetic costs of mange (Sarcoptes scabiei) in wolves (Canis lupus) using thermal cameras to estimate heat losses associated with compromised insulation during the winter. We combined the field data of known, naturally infected wolves with a data set on captive wolves with shaved patches of fur as a positive control to simulate mange-induced hair loss. Read More

H Komatsu H Tozawa

AIDS 1994 Sep;8(9):1227-35

Department of Immunology, School of Hygienic Sciences, Kitasato University, Sagamihara, Japan.

Objective: To analyze the antigenic structure and viral RNA-binding activity of HIV-2GH-1 nucleocapsid protein (NC).

Methods: Five synthetic peptides corresponding to hydrophilic regions of HIV-2GH-1 NC were prepared. The reactivity of rabbit antisera directed against these synthetic peptides was examined by Western blot (WB) assay, using lysates of purified HIV-2GH-1 virus and HIV-2GH-1-infected cells as antigen.
