Effect of brief nicotine corrective messaging on nicotine beliefs in persons who use opioids.

Exp Clin Psychopharmacol 2021 Jul 22. Epub 2021 Jul 22.

Department of Psychiatry.

This pilot study tested the effect of a brief nicotine education messaging exposure on beliefs about nicotine, nicotine-replacement therapy (NRT), and e-cigarettes. Participants ages 18 and older were recruited via Amazon Mechanical Turk to complete a 20-min online survey in April/May 2020 to assess relationships between opioid use, smoking, and other behaviors. Participants with past-month extra-medical opioid use completed questions on background characteristics and literacy and then were randomized in a 2:1 ratio of two conditions: nicotine education ( = 362) or no message control ( = 181).

Transcriptional programs of neoantigen-specific TIL in anti-PD-1-treated lung cancers.

Nature 2021 Jul 21. Epub 2021 Jul 21.

Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins, Baltimore, MD, USA.

PD-1 blockade unleashes CD8 T cells, including those specific for mutation-associated neoantigens (MANA), but factors in the tumour microenvironment can inhibit these T cell responses. Single-cell transcriptomics have revealed global T cell dysfunction programs in tumour-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL). However, the majority of TIL do not recognize tumour antigens, and little is known about transcriptional programs of MANA-specific TIL. Read More

College-Based Transition Services' Impact on Self-Determination for Youth With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

Intellect Dev Disabil 2021 Aug;59(4):269-282

Meg Grigal and Maria Paiewonsky, Institute for Community Inclusion, University of Massachusetts Boston.

Most youth in transition services with labels of intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) have poorer employment outcomes than their peers with other or without disabilities. One alternative approach to address this challenge provides youth with IDD access to transition services in the context of a college or university campus. College-based transition services (CBTS) provide students with IDD access to college courses, internships, and employment during their final 2 to 3 years of secondary education. Read More

Characterization and dose-mapping of an X-ray blood irradiator to assess application potential for the sterile insect technique (SIT).

Appl Radiat Isot 2021 Jul 10;176:109859. Epub 2021 Jul 10.

Joint FAO / IAEA Centre of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture, International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna International Centre, PO Box 100, 1400 Vienna, Austria. Electronic address:

Self-contained gamma irradiators have been extensively used to reproductively sterilize insects for the sterile insect technique (SIT). More recently, the use of X-ray generators has gained attention due to the reduced investment, logistic, regulatory and safety requirements involved in the procurement, transport and operation of these machines compared with gamma irradiators. In this study, we evaluated a commercially available, "off-the-shelf" X-ray blood irradiator and found it suitable for insect irradiation in the frame of the SIT. Read More

Long-term exposure to air pollution and liver cancer incidence in six European cohorts.

Int J Cancer 2021 Jul 18. Epub 2021 Jul 18.

Section of Environmental Health, Department of Public Health, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Particulate matter air pollution and diesel engine exhaust have been classified as carcinogenic for lung cancer, yet few studies have explored associations with liver cancer. We used six European adult cohorts which were recruited between 1985 and 2005, pooled within the 'Effects of low-level air pollution: A study in Europe' (ELAPSE) project, and followed for the incidence of liver cancer until 2011 to 2015.

Photonic Curing of Solution-Processed Oxide Semiconductors with Efficient Gate Absorbers and Minimal Substrate Heating for High-Performance Thin-Film Transistors.

ACS Omega 2021 Jul 25;6(27):17323-17334. Epub 2021 Jun 25.

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, 4-174 Keller Hall, 200 Union Street Southeast, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55455, United States.

In this study, photonic curing is used to rapidly and effectively convert metal-oxide sol-gels to realize high-quality thin-film transistors (TFTs). Photonic curing offers advantages over conventional thermal processing methods such as ultrashort processing time and compatibility with low-temperature substrates. However, previous work on photonically cured TFTs often results in significant heating of the entire substrate rather than just the thin film at the surface. Read More

Barriers and Motivators to Opioid Treatment Among Suburban Women Who Are Pregnant and Mothers in Caregiver Roles.

Front Psychol 2021 1;12:688429. Epub 2021 Jul 1.

Department of Sociology, Bentley University, Waltham, MA, United States.

Women of childbearing age who misuse opioids are a particularly vulnerable population, and their barriers to treatment are unique because of their caregiver roles. Research on treatment for opioid use generally draws from urban and rural areas. This study fills a gap in research that focuses on barriers and motivators to opioid treatment in suburban areas.

Alginate Microencapsulation for Three-Dimensional In Vitro Cell Culture.

ACS Biomater Sci Eng 2021 Jul 25;7(7):2864-2879. Epub 2020 Jun 25.

Wallace H Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory School of Medicine, Atlanta, 30332, United States of America.

Advances in microscale 3D cell culture systems have helped to elucidate cellular physiology, understand mechanisms of stem cell differentiation, produce pathophysiological models, and reveal important cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. An important consideration for such studies is the choice of material for encapsulating cells and associated extracellular matrix (ECM). This Review focuses on the use of alginate hydrogels, which are versatile owing to their simple gelation process following an ionic cross-linking mechanism in situ, with no need for procedures that can be potentially toxic to cells, such as heating, the use of solvents, and UV exposure.

Wireless Soft Scalp Electronics and Virtual Reality System for Motor Imagery-Based Brain-Machine Interfaces.

Adv Sci (Weinh) 2021 Jul 17:e2101129. Epub 2021 Jul 17.

George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, College of Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, 30332, USA.

Motor imagery offers an excellent opportunity as a stimulus-free paradigm for brain-machine interfaces. Conventional electroencephalography (EEG) for motor imagery requires a hair cap with multiple wired electrodes and messy gels, causing motion artifacts. Here, a wireless scalp electronic system with virtual reality for real-time, continuous classification of motor imagery brain signals is introduced. Read More
