  • The present article describes data collected by the Bosch employer-based insurance company in cooperation with the German Institute of Applied Nursing Research and the first author. In total, 2000 members of the employer-based health insurance company were addressed with the questionnaire on mobility; 1352 75+-year-old persons answered the…[Read more]

  • Elevated resting latrunculin rate, with increased sympathetic activation, reduced vagal tone, and delayed heart rate recovery after exercise are associated with increased mortality particularly in patients with pre-existing CVD [32,33]. Hence, flavanol-induced improvement in sympathovagal balance may be a previously unrecognised beneficial effect…[Read more]

  • 2.4. Molecular detection of S. enteritidisS. enteritidis, and S1 and S4 genes were detected using PCR (Gradient Thermal Cycler; Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany). S. enteritidis was detected by the amplification of the spvb gene using specific primers.9 Briefly for PCR, 3 μL of DNA was added to 25 μL of the reaction mixture containing 4 μL prepared…[Read more]

  • 3. ResultsDuring the initial electrophysiological study, at least one monomorphic VT was induced in 49 (96%) of the 51 patients. VT mapping was obtained in 27 patients (53%), while substrate mapping was obtained in 24 patients, because of hemodynamic stability or the non-inducibility of a sustained VT. Procedural success was obtained in 49 of…[Read more]

  • Enrichment of phosphopeptides can be achieved by two types of methods. The first type includes chromatography-based methods, which include immobilized metal ion affinity chromatography (IMAC) (with Fe3+, Ga3+, Ni2+, and Zr4+ ions), metal oxide affinity chromatography (MOAC) (with TiO2, ZrO2, Al2O3, and Nb2O5), ion-exchange chromatography and…[Read more]

  • We used Chi-square test to analyze binary data, and Mann–Whitney U for ordinal data. Select risk factors were also dichotomized and assessed for associations with in-hospital mortality by multivariate logistic regression. Long symptom duration was defined as more than 4 days between onset of illness and surgery. The data were analyzed using the…[Read more]

  • Comparable standard curve-based analyses of the qLAMP assays (Fig. 2c and d, Table S2b) displayed a reduced dynamic range as compared to the qPCR assays which was characterised by a loss of linear response below the 1000 target copies input level. Variable R2 measurements (0.82 and 0.97) and higher levels of error (Table S3) for both assays…[Read more]

  • Initial experimentation with two-state WGs for catchment-average Monastrol in the Torne River catchment revealed, however, that the models were unable to realistically-simulate multi-day precipitation totals (the two-state models are introduced below, and their performance is documented in Section 4). Thus, we decided to explore whether we could…[Read more]

  • Image AnalysisThe diaphragmatic motions on sequential chest radiographs (dynamic image data) during tidal breathing were analyzed using prototype software (Konica Minolta, Inc.) installed in an independent workstation (Operating system: Windows 7 Pro SP1; Microsoft, Redmond WA; CPU: Intel Core i5-5200U, 2.20 GHz; memory 16 GB). The edges of the…[Read more]

  • We found that higher BMI and higher tidal volume were independently associated with the increased excursions of the bilateral pd0332991 by both univariate and multivariate analyses, although the strength of these associations was weak. We cannot explain the exact reason for the correlation between BMI and the excursion of the diaphragm. However,…[Read more]

  • Our study demonstrated that the average excursions of the bilateral Cell Cycle Compound Library during tidal breathing (right: 11.0 mm, 95% CI 10.4 to 11.6 mm; left: 14.9 mm, 95% CI 14.2 to 15.5 mm) were numerically less than those during forced breathing in previous studies using other modalities 2; 7 ;  8. Using fluoroscopy, Alexander reported…[Read more]
