Effects of Aging on Hemodynamic Kinetics in Different Intensities of Dynamic Exercise.

Int J Sports Med 2021 Jun 22. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Department of Physiotherapy, UFSCar, Sao Carlos, Brazil.

Healthy aging hemodynamics is known to exhibit a time-dependent loss of function. We aimed at verifying whether older men would have a slowed cardiac output and stroke volume dynamics in response to the onset ("on") and on recovery ("off") of exercise in comparison to young men. Twenty healthy active men (10 young and 10 older) were recruited. Read More

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment for intrauterine limb ischaemia: a newborn in the chamber.

Diving Hyperb Med 2021 Jun;51(2):220-223

Istanbul Faculty of Medicine, Underwater and Hyperbaric Medicine Department, Istanbul, Turkey.

Intrauterine limb ischaemia is a rare condition that may have devastating results. Various treatments are reported in the literature; however, results are not always promising and amputations may be required for some patients. Post-natal hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) may be a useful treatment option for the salvage of affected limbs. Read More

Prolonged syncope with multifactorial pulmonary oedema related to dry apnoea training: Safety concerns in unsupervised dry static apnoea.

Diving Hyperb Med 2021 Jun;51(2):210-215

Department of Emergency Medicine, University of California San Diego, San Diego CA, USA.

Many competitive breath-hold divers use dry apnoea routines to improve their tolerance to hypoxia and hypercapnia, varying the amount of prior hyperventilation and lung volume. When hyperventilating and exhaling to residual volume prior to starting a breath-hold, hypoxia is reached quickly and without too much discomfort from respiratory drive. Cerebral hypoxia with loss of consciousness (LOC) can easily result. Read More

A scoping research literature review to map the evidence on grief triggers.

Soc Sci Med 2021 Jun 5;282:114109. Epub 2021 Jun 5.

Faculty of Nursing, University of Navarra, Pamplona, Spain.

Grief is understandably severe in the first days, if not weeks or months, following the death of a beloved person. Unless the mourner develops complicated grief, which is prolonged severe and impactful grief, the initial acute grief lessens in severity over time, although waves of significant grief will still occur with grief triggers. A scoping research literature review was undertaken in early 2021 to determine how often grief triggers occur, what the most common grief triggers are, the impact of triggered grief, and what can be done (by those not diagnosed with complicated grief) to manage grief triggers and mitigate the effect of them.

Targeted and semi-untargeted determination of phenolic compounds in plant matrices by high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.

J Chromatogr A 2021 Jun 19;1651:462315. Epub 2021 Jun 19.

University of Teramo, Faculty of Bioscience and Technology for Food, Agriculture and Environment, Teramo, Italy.

In this work two different acquisition approaches were used for the quantification and/or tentative identification of phenolic compounds (PCs) in plant matrices by HPLC-MS/MS. A targeted approach, based on MRM acquisition mode, was used for the identification and quantification of a list of target analytes by comparison with standards; a semi-targeted approach was also developed by the precursor ion scan and neutral loss for the tentative identification of compounds not included in the target list. Analysis of phenolic content in three different plant matrices (curry leaves, hemp and blueberry) was carried out. Read More

Physically cross-linked chitosan/dextrin cryogels entrapping Thymus vulgaris essential oil with enhanced mechanical, antioxidant and antifungal properties.

Int J Biol Macromol 2021 Jun 19. Epub 2021 Jun 19.

"Grigore T. Popa" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Universitatii Street 16, Iasi 700115, Romania.

Herein, we entrapped Thymus vulgaris essential oil (EO) within the physically cross-linked sponge-like architecture of cryogels by ice template-assisted freeze-drying. Their 3D cryogenically-structured network was built through hydrogen bonding formed by blending two naturally-derived polysaccharides, chitosan and dextrin. The embedment of EOs within the cryogel matrix generates sponge-like films with an increased elasticity that allows their fast shape recovery after full compression. Read More

J Clin Oncol 2021 Jun 22:JCO2100068. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Department of Haematology, University Hospital F Mitterrand and Inserm UMR1231, Dijon, France.

Purpose: The prospective, randomized AHL2011 trial demonstrated that the use of the doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine regimen (ABVD) after two cycles of bleomycin, etoposide, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, procarbazine, and prednisone (BEACOPP) in early responders on the basis of a positron emission tomography (PET)-driven strategy was safe and minimized toxicity compared with standard 6 BEACOPP cycles. This substudy investigated the benefit of this strategy in gonadal function and fertility in patients under 45 years old.

Methods: Ovarian function was assessed by serum measurement of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), estradiol, and anti-müllerian hormone in women, and semen analysis, FSH, and testosterone levels were used to evaluate testicular function in men at baseline, end of treatment, and during 5 years of follow-up.

Humanized CD19-Targeted Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T Cells in CAR-Naive and CAR-Exposed Children and Young Adults With Relapsed or Refractory Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

J Clin Oncol 2021 Jun 22:JCO2003458. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Division of Oncology, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA.

Purpose: CD19-targeted chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-modified T cells demonstrate unprecedented responses in B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL); however, relapse remains a substantial challenge. Short CAR T-cell persistence contributes to this risk; therefore, strategies to improve persistence are needed.

Methods: We conducted a pilot clinical trial of a humanized CD19 CAR T-cell product (huCART19) in children and young adults with relapsed or refractory B-ALL (n = 72) or B-lymphoblastic lymphoma (n = 2), treated in two cohorts: with (retreatment, n = 33) or without (CAR-naive, n = 41) prior CAR exposure.

Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis of organic acid profiles in human serum: a protocol of direct ultrasound-assisted derivatization.

Rapid Commun Mass Spectrom 2021 Jun 22:e9149. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Department of Nutrition and Food Hygiene, Public Health College, Harbin Medical University, Harbin, P. R. China.

Rationale: Low-molecular weight organic acids that generally contain one to three carboxyl groups are involved in many important biological processes; therefore, it is important to develop a quantitative method for analyzing organic acids in serum in order to allow evaluation of metabolic changes. In this study, we evaluated a protocol for detecting 26 organic acids in serum based on ultrasound-assisted derivatization by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS).

Methods: Serum samples were prepared using ultrasound-assisted silane derivatization before GC-MS analysis to quantify concentrations of organic acids. Read More
