Aggregation-induced emission tetraphenylethylene derivative as optical sensor for ammonia detection

Shoubin Zhang, Di Zhao, Liuyi Xiong, Yufeng Hu, Zhidong Lou, Yanbing Hou, Feng Teng & Qiuhong Cui
We propose a general approach for the achievement of optical sensors, where ammonia can be rapidly identified and detected through visible fluorescence changes. Here, a tetraphenylethylene derivative with carboxyl groups named TPE-2CA (4,4ʹ-(1,2-Diphenylethene-1,2-diyl) dibenzoyl acid) was applied in the sensor. The AIE (aggregation-induced emission) property of tetraphenylethylene structure provides the samples with excellent luminescent performance in aggregated state. The reaction between carboxyl groups and ammonia causes the shifts on luminescence spectra of the samples. Consequently,...

Stakeholders’ Perceptions of a School-Based Eye Care Programme in Baltimore, MD

Alyssa M. Kretz, Hursuong Vongsachang, David S. Friedman, Jonathan Callan, Madison Wahl, M. Rani Mukherjee, Amanda Neitzel & Megan E. Collins
To explore stakeholders’ perceptions of a school-based vision programme (SBVP). We conducted 20 focus groups with 105 parents and teachers at schools in Baltimore, MD, that participated in a SBVP. Facilitators used a semi-structured interview guide to discuss participants’ perceptions of the SBVP. Focus groups were audio-recorded, transcribed, and coded using inductive thematic analysis. Participant perceptions fell into three categories: benefits of school-based eye care, limitations of school-based eye care, and observation of impact. The...

Alterations of oral microbiota in patients with panic disorder

Zunli Xie, Weiqing Jiang, Mingzhu Deng, Wei Wang, Xian Xie, Xia Feng, Yinping Shi, Xueyan Zhang, Dong Song, Ziyu Yuan & Yonggang Wang
The main characteristics of panic disorder (PD) include recurrent panic attacks and persistent worry, accompanied by other physical and cognitive symptoms. While recent studies have revealed that gut bacteria play an important role in anxiety and depression, little is known about the relationship between oral microbiota and PD. Therefore, the objective of this study was to explore a possible correlation between oral microbiota and PD. We conducted 16S rRNA sequencing to compare differences in the...

A 16S rRNA gene sequencing based study of oral microbiota in migraine patients in China

Weiqing Jiang, Tingting Wang, Chen Liu, Mingzhu Deng, Xiao Ren, Fei Wang, Yaqing Zhang, Xueying Yu, Lingling Yao & Yonggang Wang
Migraine is a primary headache characterized by moderate or severe headache attacks, accompanied with reversible neurological and systemic symptoms. There are rare biomarkers for the disease. While emerging evidence has indicated the connection between gut microbiota and migraine, the relation between oral microbiota and migraine is barely known. Thus, the objective of the current study was to explore a possible correlation between oral microbiota and migraine. We compared the oral microbiota communities of migraine patients...

Using crowdsourcing to understand patients attitudes toward a clinical trial for retinitis pigmentosa requiring 4 years of participation

Xiangrong Kong, Cory Dorfman, Susie Trotochaud, Fahd Naufal, Carl A. Latkin & Peter A. Campochiaro
Clinical trials for retinitis pigmentosa (RP) likely require long follow-ups because of the slow progression of RP. Understanding patients’ attitudes toward participation in a long trial and their acceptability of strategies aimed at promoting retention/compliance is important for assessing feasibility and resource needs and optimizing trial design. A crowdsourcing survey to adult RP patients was administered on social media in 2020 July-November. Patient enthusiasm level of study participation, acceptability of attending clinic visits every 4–5...

Microcapillary LAMP for rapid and sensitive detection of pathogen in bovine semen

Syed Atif Ali, Nongthombam Boby, Prasanna Preena, Shiv Varan Singh, Gurpreet Kaur, Subrata Kumar Ghosh, Sukdeb Nandi & Pallab Chaudhuri
A microcapillary-based loop-mediated isothermal amplification (µcLAMP) has been described for specific detection of infectious reproductive pathogens in semen samples of cattle without sophisticated instrumentation. Brucella abortus, Leptospira interrogans serovar Pomona and bovine herpesvirus 1 (BoHV-1) cultures were mixed in bovine semen samples. The µcLAMP assay is portable, user-friendly, cost-effective, and suitable to be performed as a POC diagnostic test. We have demonstrated high sensitivity and specificity of µcLAMP for detection of Brucella, Leptospira, and BoHV-1...

Yiguanjian decoction inhibits macrophage M1 polarization and attenuates hepatic fibrosis induced by CCl4/2-AAF

Ying Xu, Wen Xu, Wei Liu, Gaofeng Chen, Shili Jiang, Jiamei Chen, Xun Jian, Hua Zhang, Ping Liu & Yongping Mu
Our previous studies indicated that Yiguanjian decoction (YGJ) has an anti-hepatic-fibrosis effect and could regulate macrophage status. To elucidate the mechanism of YGJ in regulating macrophages. Liver cirrhosis was induced by CCl4 for 12 weeks combined with 2-acetylaminofluorene (2-AAF) for the last 4 weeks in male Wistar rats. YGJ (3.56 mg/kg) orally administered in the last 4 weeks, and SORA (1 mg/kg) as control. In vitro, RAW264.7 cells were treated with lipopolysaccharides (LPSs) to induce...

Cataract Surgery Numbers in U.S. Ophthalmology Residency Programs: An ACGME Case Log Analysis

Brittany C. Tsou, Hursuong Vongsachang, Boonkit Purt, Divya Srikumaran, Grant A. Justin & Fasika A. Woreta
To describe and assess the cataract experience of ophthalmology residents throughout the United States (U.S.). Cataract procedures logged by graduating ophthalmology residents nationwide and published by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) from 2009 to 2020 were analyzed using linear regression on log-transformed response variables with robust variance. As primary surgeon, average numbers logged for phacoemulsification increased yearly by an average of 4.1% prior to 2019 and then decreased by 22.1% in 2019...

Dynamics in perioperative neutrophil-to-lymphocyte*platelet ratio as a predictor of early acute kidney injury following cardiovascular surgery

Yang Li, Zhouping Zou, Yunlu Zhang, Bowen Zhu, Yichun Ning, Bo Shen, Chunsheng Wang, Zhe Luo, Jiarui Xu & Xiaoqiang Ding
In this study, we applied a composite index of neutrophil-lymphocyte * platelet ratio (NLPR), and explore the significance of the dynamics of perioperative NLPR in predicting cardiac surgery-associated acute kidney injury (CSA-AKI). During July 1st and December 31th 2019, participants were prospectively derived from the ‘Zhongshan Cardiovascular Surgery Cohort’. NLPR was determined using neutrophil counts, lymphocyte and platelet count at the two-time points. Dose-response relationship analyses were applied to delineate the non-linear odds ratio (OR)...
