Consideration of Anticoagulation: Surgical Care for the Elderly in Current Geriatrics ReportsAbstractIntroductionThe geriatric population in the USA is growing at a dramatic rate. As this segment of the population increases in number, surgical providers will increasingly treat and evaluate patients with age-specific needs that affect surgical or trauma management. Consequently, surgeons should be familiar with trends in prescribing oral anticoagulants (OACs), their association with outcomes, and...

Expression Profile and Function Analysis of Long Non-coding RNAs in the Infection of Coxsackievirus B3AbstractThe roles of lncRNAs in the infection of enteroviruses have been barely demonstrated. In this study, we used coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3), a typical enterovirus, as a model to investigate the expression profiles and functional roles of lncRNAs in enterovirus infection. We profiled lncRNAs and mRNA expression in CVB3-infected HeLa cells by lncRNA-mRNA integrated microarrays. As a result, 700 differentially...

The clinical appearance of fuso-spirillar infection in patients with a serious impairment of the immunitary system was the starting-point for a historical study. At the end of nineteenth century two european researchers clarified the cause of many infections. Association of a spindle-shaped bacillus with a spirillar one was shown to cause several pathologies: necrotic ulcerous stomatitis, pseudomembranous angina, hepatic abscess, otitis, pneumonia, etc. The identification of such bacteria contributed to improving further differential diagnosis with diphteria.
Acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis (ANUG) is a common, non-contagious infection of the gums with sudden onset. The main features are painful, bleeding gums, and ulceration of inter-dental papillae (the sections of gum between adjacent teeth).This disease, along with necrotizing (ulcerative) periodontitis (NP or NUP) is classified as a necrotizing periodontal disease, one of the seven general types of gum disease caused by inflammation of the gums (periodontitis). The often severe gum pain that...

Understanding the impacts of current human activities on within-species genetic variation requires a thorough description of the historical factors that have shaped the genomic and geographical distribution of nucleotide diversity. Past and current conditions influencing effective population size have important evolutionary implications for the efficacy of selection, increased accumulation of deleterious mutations, and loss of adaptive potential under the nearly neutral theory. Here, we gather extensive...
