Use of fluid thickener to reduce dysphagia risk. - Nursing times
Swallowing difficulties are common among care home residents, and increase their risks of a range of conditions. A care home provider evaluated the use of fluid thickeners to reduce these risks, and implemented an initiative to improve understanding of dysphagia among both care and catering staff. This included changing the thickeners used and ensuring there was some consistency with regard to the terminology used undertaking staff training. related to food textures, as well ashe Francis report (Francis, 2013) states people must have access to
Conserved cysteine residues within the attachment G glycoprotein of respiratory syncytial virus play a critical role in the enhancement of cytotoxic T-lymphocyte responses. - Virus genes
The cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) response plays an important role in the control of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) replication and the establishment of a Th1-CD4+ T cell response against the virus. Despite lacking Major Histocompatibility Complex I (MHC I)-restricted epitopes, the attachment G glycoprotein of RSV enhances CTL activity toward other RSV antigens, and this effect depends on its conserved central region. Here, we report that RSV-G can also improve CTL activity toward antigens from unrelated pathogens such as influenza, and that a mutant form of RSV-G lacking four conserved cysteine residues at positions 173, 176, 182, and 186 fails to enhance CTL responses. Our results indicate that these conserved residues are essential for the wide-spectrum pro-CTL activity displayed by the protein.
Gastroduodenal artery used for arterial reconstruction during the Whipple operation. - Hepato-gastroenterology
The right hepatic artery and the common hepatic artery originate from the superior mesenteric artery in approximately 10-15% of the population. Reconstruction of the hepatic artery using the gastroduodenal artery has previously been described to repair hepatic artery injury during the performance of biliary and pancreatic resections. We report the utilization of this technique in patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy for a periampullary neoplasm involving a replaced right hepatic artery.
[Study on the relationship between body mass index and risk factors of chronic diseases of Beijing urban residences]. - Wei sheng yan jiu = Journal of hygiene research
This study aimed to analysis the relationship among body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC) with chronic diseases risk factors--serum total cholesterol (TC), triglyceridaemia(TG), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), fasting blood glucose (FBG), systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and the prevalence of chronic diseases. The data was collected from 1995 to 1998 in the study of community base integrated intervention of non-communicable chronic diseases.The prevalence of overweight and obesity in male was 41.7% and 14.6%, in female was 32.0% and 20.4% in this population, respectively. BMI and WC had significant positive relationship with TC, TG, SBP and DBP but negative with HDL-C and HDL-C/TC. WC had significant positive relation with FBG. The prevalence of dyslipidaemia hypertension and diabetes were significantly increased in overweight and obese groups. For early prevention, we have to pay more attention to the population with BMI > 24.0 kg/m2, they had increased risk factors of non-communicable chronic diseases.
The endogenous granulocyte colony-stimulating factor response following autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation is impaired in patients with myeloma. - British journal of haematology
Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) levels were studied in 23 patients (10 myeloma, 13 relapsed Hodgkin's disease, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or germ cell tumours), post autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT). The two groups had similar previous chemotherapy and numbers of CD34+ cells transplanted. All patients received G-CSF by injection starting 8 d post transplantation. Twenty out of 23 patients showed raised endogenous levels of G-CSF before cytokine administration. Myeloma patients showed significantly lower levels of endogenous G-CSF than the other patients (0.767 versus 3.262 ng/ml, P < 0.05). Further rises in G-CSF levels were seen following the administration of exogenous G-CSF which then fell, despite ongoing administration of G-CSF, as neutrophil recovery occurred.
