Characterizing dementia caregiver style in managing care challenges: Cognitive and behavioral components.

Dementia (London) 2021 Aug 31;20(6):2188-2204. Epub 2021 Jan 31.

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, 8789University of California Davis, USA; Department of Psychiatry, 1259University of Michigan, USA.

Background: Caring for a person living with dementia can take a physical and emotional toll, but understudied is the process by which family caregivers actually provide care. Caregiver management styles may vary and affect care decision-making, experiences, receptivity to and participation in interventions, and outcomes for the caregiver and person living with dementia.

Methods: Participants included 100 primary family caregivers for persons with dementia who were on average 64 years old and had been providing care for 55 months, 74% women, and 18% nonwhite. Read More

Institute of Pathology, University Medical Center Goettingen, Germany. Electronic address:

Background And Purpose: Adenoid cystic carcinomas (ACC) are characterized by high rate of local recurrence and late distant metastasis. Chromosomal changes in the evolution from primary tumors to metastatic disease of ACC have not been appointed. Here we investigated the chromosomal alterations of 53 primary tumors from ACC patients with different progressive states by shallow whole genome sequencing to identify potential new markers for metastatic spread.

RNA-Sequencing of Snake Venom Glands.

Methods Mol Biol 2020 ;2068:87-96

Faculty of Medicine, Department of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand.

Next-generation sequencing (NGS), particularly RNA-sequencing (RNA-Seq) technique, allows detection and quantification of different RNA transcripts in a tissue sample, and in our case toxin transcripts from snake venom glands. Using this approach, novel toxin transcripts can be detected and abundancies of different isoforms of each toxin measured. The analytical pipeline can be briefly outlined as follows. Read More

DNApi: A De Novo Adapter Prediction Algorithm for Small RNA Sequencing Data.

PLoS One 2016 13;11(10):e0164228. Epub 2016 Oct 13.

Program in Bioinformatics and Integrative Biology, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, Massachusetts, United States of America.

With the rapid accumulation of publicly available small RNA sequencing datasets, third-party meta-analysis across many datasets is becoming increasingly powerful. Although removing the 3´ adapter is an essential step for small RNA sequencing analysis, the adapter sequence information is not always available in the metadata. The information can be also erroneous even when it is available. Read More

DUI offenders' experience with an ignition interlock program: comparing those who have and have not adapted from their primary drinking location.

Traffic Inj Prev 2015 23;16(4):329-35. Epub 2014 Dec 23.

a Department of Behavioral and Community Health , University of Maryland School of Public Health , College Park , Maryland.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare driving under the influence (DUI) offenders on an alcohol ignition interlock program who had or had not changed their primary drinking context from a bar/restaurant where they might be required to drive after drinking before the interlock was installed to drinking at home where driving would not be likely to be required following interlock installation.

Methods: A total of 171 DUI offenders who were on an ignition interlock program completed a web-based survey. All of these offenders reported that they drank primarily in a bar/restaurant before the interlock was installed. Read More

Transcriptome analysis of neoplastic hemocytes in soft-shell clams Mya arenaria: Focus on cell cycle molecular mechanism.

Results Immunol 2013 1;3:95-103. Epub 2013 Nov 1.

Laboratory of Ecotoxicology, University of Le Havre, 25 rue Philippe Lebon, BP540, 76058 Le Havre, France.

In North America, a high mortality of soft-shell clams Mya arenaria was found to be related to the disease known as disseminated neoplasia (DN). Disseminated neoplasia is commonly recognized as a tetraploid disorder related to a disruption of the cell cycle. However, the molecular mechanisms by which hemocytes of clams are transformed in the course of DN remain by far unknown. Read More

Tunable fractionation of nucleic acids.

Biotechniques 2009 Dec;47(6):1041-3

Functional Genomics Technology Team, Omics Science Center (OSC), RIKEN Yokohama Institute, Kanagawa, Japan.

We developed a method for selective purification of DNA using the cationic detergent, cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), accompanied with urea and controlled high-salt (NaCl) concentration. This method is effective for rapid separation of DNA fragments from artifacts such as PCR primer dimers or ligation adapters. The CTAB-associated purification completely removed the short PCR artifacts and primers, as well as enzymes and buffer, while recovering a sufficient quantity of amplicons for subsequent experiments such as preparation of libraries.

Department of Anesthesiology, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington.

The authors studied the particle size of aerosols of metaproterenol produced by three different actuators designed for use in patients with endotracheal tubes in place. These were compared with the metaproterenol aerosol produced by the actuator (provided by Boehringer-Ingelheim [BI]) that was supplied by the manufacturer for use in patients whose tracheas are not intubated. The volume of particles in the respiratory size range (1. Read More
