Piercing ear cartilage  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Piercing ear cartilage Piercing ear cartilage Name: Mark Reynolds Status: N/A Age: N/A Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: My name is Mark Reynolds. I have heard that there is a nerve in the cartilage area of the ear. My question is as follows: If you pierce your ear(s) and do hit the nerve, could permanent paralysis or brain damage occur? Thank you. Replies: No. Basically nerves serve two purposes: gathering information from the senses (sensory nerves) and controlling muscles (motor nerves). If you damage a sensory nerve, then that nerve can't send messages to the brain, but this will not damage the brain. If you damage a motor nerve then the brain can't send messages to a muscle and indeed paralysis occurs. But nerves are laid out sensibly, that is, nerves do not go from your brain through your earlobe and then on to your leg or arm. Damaging a motor nerve in your ear won't affect anything other than your ear muscles, if there are any. Paralysis is usually temporary if motor nerve damage occurs outside of the spinal cord, since the main body of the motor nerve cells are in the spinal cord and the "axons" connecting them to the muscles can regrow (about a millimeter a day). If nerve cell bodies themselves are damaged by injury to the spinal cord they may recover and paralysis go away. This may also happen even if nerve cells are killed, as long as not too many are, and other cells can take over. But if too many are killed paralysis is permanent, since nerve cells never reproduce.

Glowing eyes  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Glowing eyes Glowing eyes Name: Sophie Hunt Age: N/A Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: Why do dogs eyes glow in the dark? Replies: They have a reflective surface behind the retina (light sensitive back surface) of the eye which bounces light from, for example, your headlights back at you somewhat like highway reflectors. The purpose of the surface is to increase the ability of the retina to detect faint light -- that is, the ability of the animal to see in the dark -- by making the light pass *twice* through the retina. Humans don't have this surface, but very bright light will bounce back from the retina itself enough to be seen. Since the retina is red (from its ample blood supply) you see a red reflection, and this is the source of the "red spot" in the eyes in photographs of people who looked at the flash.

Eye Physiology Eye Physiology Name: Charlotte Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: I do Physics A level and in my last exam it was really annoying because one of the questions was something that I've always wanted to know but never got around to finding out. You know when you look at a star in the sky or those glowing stars that you stick on your bedroom ceiling? Well, why is it that they don't look as bright when you look directly at them, but do when you look slightly to the side? Replies: _Hello Charlotte The answer is to do with the biology of the eye. There are two types of receptor cells in the eye and each has strengths and weaknesses: 1. Rod cells - only see black and white but are very sensitive (ie will pick up very small amounts of light) 2. Cone cells - see color but are not as sensitive as rod cells.

Eye Color in Humans Eye Color in Humans Name: Kristi Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: The dominant characteristic is the one most likely to appear in the offspring. In human beings, brown is the dominant color for eyes. The children who inherit at least on dominant gene will have either brown, green, or hazel eyes. Only childten who inherit two recessive genes will have pure blue eyes. If there are eight children in the family, what color eyes will most of them have? Replies: http://www.newton.dep.anl.gov/archive.htm Search under eye color Steve Sample You answer is of course dependent on the genes of the parents. If both parents do not have the recessive gene, then no children will have light colored eyes. If one has a recessive gene and the other not, then still no children will have light color eyes and on the average 25% of the eight children could have the recessive gene. If both parents have the recessive gene, then 25% of the eight children could have light color eyes.

Blue-eyed Babies

Blue-eyed Babies Blue-eyed Babies Name: Jill Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: One of my students asked me the other day why all babies are born with blue eyes, even though they are truly brown-eyed, once their eyes change colour. What causes this phenomenon? Exposure to air, maybe? Replies: Hi, First of all not all babies are born with blue eyes. This is especially evident in the Asian/ Indian continents. The cause for the delay is nothing more than a delay in the enzymes that bring on the darker color proteins. You are probably aware that eye color is determined by more than one gene. The darker colors have blue coloration as part of their make-up and that may be the only protein of the color exposed at birth for many individuals. The proteins that give the darker colors usually turn on within a year of birth and this timing varies with individuals.

Middle?ear transfer function of the anesthetized Mongolian gerbil  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The middle?ear transfer function of the Mongolian gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus) was obtained using a constant CM criterion with both single electrodes in scala media and differential electrodes in scalae media and tympani. A cancellation technique allowed accurate phase measurement of both CM and ear?canal sound pressure. Results indicate small inter?animal variability and no significant differences between single electrodes and differential electrodes except for contamination of single electrode recordings by whole?nerve action potentials. With the bulla open the magnitude of the transfer function has a positive slope of 6 dB/octave up to 200 Hz and is flat from 200 Hz to 1.8 where it begins to fall off at a rate of approximately 12 dB/octave. The CM phase leads to that of the sound pressure by 90° at 100 Hz is 0° at 600 Hz and lags by 90° at 1.8 kHz. At high frequencies the phase lag is greater than 180°. The high?frequency rolloff steeper than that found in other mammals is probably due to decreased coupling between the incus and the stapes.

3D printing of composite tissue with complex shape applied to ear regeneration  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the ear reconstruction field, tissue engineering enabling the regeneration of the ear's own tissue has been considered to be a promising technology. However, the ear is known to be difficult to regenerate using traditional methods due to its complex shape and composition. In this study, we used three-dimensional (3D) printing technology including a sacrificial layer process to regenerate both the auricular cartilage and fat tissue. The main part was printed with poly-caprolactone (PCL) and cell-laden hydrogel. At the same time, poly-ethylene-glycol (PEG) was also deposited as a sacrificial layer to support the main structure. After complete fabrication, PEG can be easily removed in aqueous solutions, and the procedure for removing PEG has no effect on the cell viability. For fabricating composite tissue, chondrocytes and adipocytes differentiated from adipose-derived stromal cells were encapsulated in hydrogel to dispense into the cartilage and fat regions, respectively, of ear-shaped structures. Finally, we fabricated the composite structure for feasibility testing, satisfying expectations for both the geometry and anatomy of the native ear. We also carried out in vitro assays for evaluating the chondrogenesis and adipogenesis of the cell-printed structure. As a result, the possibility of ear regeneration using 3D printing technology which allowed tissue formation from the separately printed chondrocytes and adipocytes was demonstrated.

Wave and place fixed DPOAE maps of the human ear  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Human intermodulation distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAE) can be a mixture of low and high latency components. They have different level phase and suppression characteristics which indicate that emissions arise both from the frequency region of the primary tones directly and indirectly via the DP frequency place. Which component dominates the measured DPOAE in the ear canal depends on the stimulus parameters especially the frequency ratio f 2 /f 1 . Interference between the two emissions adds complexity to measurements of DPOAE. The behavior and even existence of whichever emission route is lower in level often cannot directly be deduced from the raw DPOAE data because the other emission covers it. It is therefore not known whether both emissions are present for all stimulus parameters or whether the trends seen in each emission when they are the dominant emission route continue under stimulus conditions when they are not dominant. In this study the two DPOAE components are separated by a post-processing method. Previously maps of raw DPOAE data against f 2 /f 1 and DP frequency have been obtained. To separate the components sets of data consisting of f 2 /f 1 sweeps were transformed by an inverse Fourier transform into the time domain. The low and high latency components appeared as two distinct peaks because of their different phase gradients. These peaks were separated by windowing in the time domain and two frequency domain maps were reconstructed representing the low and high latency DPOAEs. It was found that the low latency component of the 2?f 1 ?f 2 DP was only emitted strongly with f 2 /f 1 between approximately 1.1 and 1.3. The removal of the high latency component revealed the low ratio edge of this region at which the level falls sharply. However the low latency emission has been traced at reduced amplitude over a wide range of stimulus parameters. Although previously only observed at small frequency ratios the high latency component was found to be present widely in the lower sideband its level reducing slowly at larger f 2 /f 1 . Its phase behavior changes in the lower sideband being approximately constant with DP frequency at small ratios of f 2 /f 1 but deviating from this at wider ratios. These results support the hypothesis that a DPOAE component which propagates to and is re-emitted from the DP frequency place (place fixed emission) is present across a wide parameter range. However for all but the close primary condition the lower sideband DPOAE is dominated by direct emission from the region of f 2 and f 1 wave interaction(wave fixed emission). A simple transmission line model is presented to illustrate how the observed DPOAE maps can arise on the basis of this hypothesis.

Use and selection of bridges as day roosts by Rafinesque's Big Eared Bats.  

SciTech Connect

ABSTRACT.—Rafinesque’s big-eared bats (Corynorhinus rafinesquii) use bridges as day roosts in parts of their range, but information on bridge use across their range is lacking. From May to Aug. 2002 we surveyed 1129 bridges (12.5%) within all 46 counties of South Carolina to determine use and selection of bridges as day roosts by big-eared bats and to document their distribution across the state. During summer 2003, we visited 235 bridges in previously occupied areas of the state to evaluate short-term fidelity to bridge roosts. We found colonies and solitary big-eared bats beneath 38 bridges in 2002 and 54 bridges in 2003. Construction type and size of bridges strongly influenced use in both years; bats selected large, concrete girder bridges and avoided flat-bottomed slab bridges. The majority of occupied bridges (94.7%) were in the Upper and Lower Coastal Plains, but a few bridges (5.3%) were located in the Piedmont. Rafinesque’s big-eared bats were absent beneath bridges in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We established new records of occurrence for 10 counties. In the Coastal Plains, big-eared bats exhibited a high degree of short-term fidelity to roosts in highway bridges. For bridges that were occupied at least once, mean frequency of use was 65.9%. Probability of finding bats under a bridge ranged from 0.46 to 0.73 depending on whether the bridge was occupied in the previous year. Thus, bridges should be inspected three to five times in a given year to determine whether they are being used. Regional bridge roost surveys may be a good method for determining the distribution of C. rafinesquii, particularly in the Coastal Plains, and protection of suitable bridges may be a viable conservation strategy where natural roost sites are limited.

Dental root agenesis secondary to irradiation therapy in a case of rhabdomyosarcoma of the middle ear  

SciTech Connect

There have been only a few published reports on the dental-facial effects of radiation therapy and the subsequent oral management of these patients. A case involving a 13-year-old black male patient with a history of rhabdomyosarcoma is presented. The patient received 4,050 rads of radiation to the right middle ear when he was 2 years of age. His residual medical and dental difficulties are apparently complications from the initial therapy. Examination of the oral cavity revealed bimaxillary micrognathia and marked loss of vertical dimension. A Class II facial profile with Class I molar relationship was observed. The mandible was thin and hypoplastic, with a small knife-edge alveolar ridge. The remaining eighteen erupted permanent teeth were very mobile, and root development had ceased after only initial formation. All of the teeth except the first permanent molars were extracted, and immediate partial dentures were inserted at the time of surgery. A discussion of therapeutic considerations follows the case report.

Scientific discovery of the function of ear in the light of material property  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Piezoelectricity is conversion of mechanical energy to electric energy and vice versa. This property exhibits in noncentrocymetric materials. Bone is well?known piezoelectric material in living body. Eardrum is connected with bones (malleus incus stapes and bony cochlea). Cochlea is snail?shaped and filled with fluid and hair cells (human electrodes). Fluid is centrocymetric; hence it is nonpiezoelectric material. Acoustic pressure on eardrum sets mechanical energy to these bones. Bones convert mechanical energy to electric polarization which is direct piezoelectric property. Electric charges generated in bones are transmitted through fluid as ±ions (like a car battery charger) and picked up by ?/+ hair cells and auditory nerves for transmission to brain. Transmissions of ±charges through fluid generate movement of fluid. Cochlea replacement is required when hair cells in cochlea lose their power to transmit charges. Vocal cord surrounded by cricoid and arytenoid cartilages is known as vocal box/larynx. Larynx transforms pulse energy to sound energy (converse piezoelectric property). Vocal cord narrowing and opening its air passage from lungs can also produce sound. Present concept of ear function contradicts majority of doctor’s view that is fluid in cochlea transforms sound (mechanical) energy to electric energy which is untrue.

Parkinson's Disease Parkinson's Disease Name: saabsaab Status: N/A Age: N/A Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: Around 1993 Question: I am interested in collecting information on Parkinson's Disease. Can you help me? Replies: Some possible sources include a neuroscience reference, a neurology text, a neurologist, neuroanatomy references. Basically Parkinson's disease is a movement disorder. It gets more and more difficult to move. One of the primary brain lesions associated with this disease is a shrinkage of an area in the brain stem called the substantia nigra. This is thought to be associated with the neurotransmitter dopamine and there seems to decreased production of the dopamine in this area. Some medications do seem to help including a dopamine replacement medicine called Sinemet. There are some new medicines coming out that may also help. Another exciting area is trying to get new dopamine cells to grow in the substantia nigra area, one way is to insert a needle into the area and inject immature nerve cells into the area and hope they will grow up to be mature dopamine producers, so far it is still considered somewhat experimental. The disease is thought to be caused by progressive cell loss. Some cases have been caused by people who synthesized drugs to abuse and they made a mistake and a bunch of young people took the drug and ended up with the disease. The silver lining of this is that this drug also will do the same thing in rats, so now there is an animal model for Parkinson's.

Ultraviolet and Green Receptors in Principal Eyes of Jumping Spiders  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

ABSTRACT Spectral sensitivities of cells in principal eyes of the jumping spider Phidippus reqius were measured using techniques of intraceUular recording. Three types of cells were found. UV ceils had peak sensitivities at 370 nm and were over 4 log units less sensitive at wavelengths longer than 460 nm. Green-sensitive cells had spectral sensitivities which were well fit by nomogram curves peaking at 532 nm. UV-green ceils had dual peaks of sensitivity at about 370 and 525 nm, but the ratios of UV-to-green sensitivities varied over a 40:1 range from cell to cell. Moreover, responses of UV-green cells to flashes of UV light were slower than to flashes of green light. Segregation of receptor types into the known layers of receptors in these eyes could not be shown. It is concluded that jumping spiders have the potential for dichromatic color vision. The brightly colored, keen-sighted jumping spiders have long been considered the possessers of color vision. Peckham and Peckham (1894) claimed that males of a number of species ( Dendryphantes elegans, Saitis pulex, Phiddipus rufus, and Astia vittata) used color clues to identify females (of the same species)

Retina Image Analysis and Ocular Telehealth: The Oak Ridge National Laboratory-Hamilton Eye Institute Case Study  

SciTech Connect

Automated retina image analysis has reached a high level of maturity in recent years, and thus the question of how validation is performed in these systems is beginning to grow in importance. One application of retina image analysis is in telemedicine, where an automated system could enable the automated detection of diabetic retinopathy and other eye diseases as a low-cost method for broad-based screening. In this work we discuss our experiences in developing a telemedical network for retina image analysis, including our progression from a manual diagnosis network to a more fully automated one. We pay special attention to how validations of our algorithm steps are performed, both using data from the telemedicine network and other public databases.

Retinal Diseases: Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Retinitis Pigmentosa  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Retinal Diseases: Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Retinitis Pigmentosa Retinal Diseases: Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Retinitis Pigmentosa Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease primarily affecting the central vision regions in people age 60 and older. According to the Macular Degeneration Research Fund, a case of AMD is diagnosed in the United States every 3 minutes. Each year, 1.2 million of the estimated 12 million people with AMD will suffer severe vision loss. Patients with AMD have dark areas in their vision caused by fluid leakage or bleeding in the macula, the center of the retina that produces the sharpest vision. The brain initially compensates for these dark patches. Early cellular dysfunction or spotting in the macula may go undetected until the disease is in advanced stages.

Development of an eye-tracking control system using AForge.NET framework  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Assistive technology is taken one step ahead with the introduction of sophisticated eye-tracking and gaze-tracking techniques which track the movement of the eye and the gaze location to control various applications. This paper describes in detail the low-cost hardware development and the software architecture for a real-time eye-tracking based wireless control system using the open-source image processing framework of AForge.NET. The system developed has been tested in the field of remote robotic navigation, using the Lego NXT Mindstorm robot, and wireless home automation, using the X10 transmission protocol. The system designed uses a wireless camera to detect the eye movements and transmit control signals over a wireless channel. This provides a highly useful alternative control system for a person suffering from quadriplegia (i.e. full body paralysis). Tests conducted to measure the processing time, system accuracy and error aid in evaluating the performance of the developed eye-tracking system.

A MATLAB-based eye tracking control system using non-invasive helmet head restraint in the macaque  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractBackground Tracking eye position is vital for behavioral and neurophysiological investigations in systems and cognitive neuroscience. Infrared camera systems which are now available can be used for eye tracking without the need to surgically implant magnetic search coils. These systems are generally employed using rigid head fixation in monkeys, which maintains the eye in a constant position and facilitates eye tracking. New method We investigate the use of non-rigid head fixation using a helmet that constrains only general head orientation and allows some freedom of movement. We present a MATLAB software solution to gather and process eye position data, present visual stimuli, interact with various devices, provide experimenter feedback and store data for offline analysis. Comparison with existing method Our software solution achieves excellent timing performance due to the use of data streaming, instead of the traditionally employed data storage mode for processing analog eye position data. Results We present behavioral data from two monkeys, demonstrating that adequate performance levels can be achieved on a simple fixation paradigm and show how performance depends on parameters such as fixation window size. Our findings suggest that non-rigid head restraint can be employed for behavioral training and testing on a variety of gaze-dependent visual paradigms, reducing the need for rigid head restraint systems for some applications. Conclusion While developed for macaque monkey, our system of course can work equally well for applications in human eye tracking where head constraint is undesirable.

Air Fluorescence Calorimetry with the High Resolution Fly's Eye and Telescope Array Experiments  

SciTech Connect

The air fluorescence technique was first successfully deployed on the Fly's Eye Experiment (1981-1993) by the University of Utah. Its successor, the High Resolution Fly's Eye (HiRes) experiment has further exploited this technique, first in hybrid mode with the MIA muon array (1993-1996), and then in monocular and stereoscopic modes (1997-2006). Results from HiRes will be presented, including evidence for the Greisen-Zatsepin-K'uzmin (GZK) Effect predicted 40 years ago. Most recently, members of the HiRes are collaborating with groups from Japan, led by University of Tokyo, to construct and operate the Telescope Array (TA) experiment, which will deploy a large scintillation-based ground array in combination with fluorescence detectors. Funding for TA in the US has already been approved by NSF. TA will begin operation in 2007.

Alternative construction of the closed form of the Green's function for the wavized Maxwell fish-eye problem  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In the recent paper [J.\\ Phys.\\ A 44 (2011) 065203], we have arrived at the closed-form expression for the Green's function for the partial differential operator describing propagation of a scalar wave in an $N$-dimensional ($N\\geqslant2$) Maxwell fish-eye medium. The derivation has been based on unique transformation properties of the fish-eye wave equation under the hyperspherical inversion. In this communication, we arrive at the same expression for the fish-eye Green's function following a different route. The alternative derivation we present here exploits the fact that there is a close mathematical relationship, through the stereographic projection, between the wavized fish-eye problem in $\\mathbb{R}^{N}$ and the problem of propagation of scalar waves over the surface of the $N$-dimensional hypersphere.

Dutch Elm Disease Dutch Elm Disease Nature Bulletin No. 411-A March 20, 1971 Forest Preserve District of Cook County George W. Dunne, President Roland F. Eisenbeis, Supt. of Conservation THE DUTCH ELM DISEASE The American elm, far and away our most popular and important shade tree, is facing its most threatening enemy, the Dutch Elm Disease. A large part of them seem to be doomed unless up-to-date methods of control are used. In New England the appearance of whole towns has been changed by the loss of gigantic elms along entire streets. This same havoc is being repeated in most eastern states and, now, as far west as Missouri. The first diseased tree in Illinois was found downstate fifteen years ago. Since then, the infection has spread over most of the state, reaching the Chicago region in 1954.

Motion-induced radiation from electrons moving in Maxwell's fish-eye  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In \\u{C}erenkov radiation and transition radiation, evanescent wave from motion of charged particles transfers into radiation coherently. However, such dissipative motion-induced radiations require particles to move faster than light in medium or to encounter velocity transition to pump energy. Inspired by a method to detect cloak by observing radiation of a fast-moving electron bunch going through it by Zhang {\\itshape et al.}, we study the generation of electron-induced radiation from electrons' interaction with Maxwell's fish-eye sphere. Our calculation shows that the radiation is due to a combination of \\u{C}erenkov radiation and transition radiation, which may pave the way to investigate new schemes of transferring evanescent wave to radiation.

Performance of "Moth Eye" Anti-Reflective Coatings for Solar Cell Applications  

SciTech Connect

An inexpensive, effective anti-reflective coating (ARC) has been developed at the University of Florida to significantly enhance the absorption of light by silicon in solar cells. This coating has nano-scale features, and its microstructure mimics that of various night active insects (e.g. a moth's eye). It is a square array of pillars, each about 700 nm high and having a diameter of about 300 nm. Samples of silicon having this coating were exposed either to various combinations of either elevated temperature and humidity or to gamma irradiation ({sup 60}Co) at the Savannah River National Laboratory, or to a broad spectrum ultraviolet light and to a 532 nm laser light at the University of Florida. The anti-reflective properties of the coatings were unaffected by any of these environmental stresses, and the microstructure of the coating was also unaffected. In fact, the reflectivity of the gamma irradiated ARC became lower (advantageous for solar cell applications) at wavelengths between 400 and 1000 nm. These results show that this coating is robust and should be tested in actual systems exposed to either weather or a space environment. Structural details of the ARCs were studied to optimize their performance. Square arrays performed better than hexagonal arrays - the natural moth-eye coating is indeed a square array. The optimal depth of the templated nanopillars in the ARC was investigated. A wet etching technology for ARC formation was developed that would be less expensive and much faster than dry etching. Theoretical modeling revealed that dimple arrays should perform better than nipple arrays. A method of fabricating both dimple and nipple arrays having the same length was developed, and the dimple arrays performed better than the nipple arrays, in agreement with the modeling. The commercial viability of the technology is quite feasible, since the technology is scalable and inexpensive. This technology is also compatible with current industrial fabrication of solar cells.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Objective: To show how an extending capsulorrhexis can be rescued by a midway tangential capsular flap in order to achieve an uneventful phacoemulsification. Design: Consecutive case series. Participants: Twenty-two eyes of 22 patients with extending capsulorrhexis treated at the Farabi Eye Hospital, Tehran. Methods: First, a tangential capsular opening was created on the border of the presumed continuous curvilinear capsulorrhexis just midway between the beginning of the capsulorrhexis and the edge of the extending capsulor-rhexis, to make a tangential flap of the anterior capsule. Second, the centre of this new flap was grasped and pulled centripetally until the edges of the new flap joined the edges of the extending flap to complete the capsulorrhexis. Results: The technique was successfully performed in all cases, leading to an uneventful phacoemulsification. Conclusions: Midway tangential capsular flap is a safe and effective technique to rescue an extending capsulorrhexis and leads to an uneventful phacoemulsification.

On the relationship between whole body, extremity and eye lens doses for medical staff in the preparation and application of radiopharmaceuticals in nuclear medicine  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We performed individual dose measurements, in terms of Hp(10) for the whole body, Hp(0,07) for the extremities (hands) and Hp(3) for the eyes, for medical personnel (technical staff, nurses and medical doctors) in three nuclear medicine departments. One conventional diagnostic scintigraphy department, where Tc-99m, I-131 and Sm-153 were applied, and two PET-CT departments where F-18 was applied in preparation and application procedures, were studied. A novel eye lens dosemeter was used, designed to evaluate Hp(3) directly. From our measurements we obtained ratios of Hp(3)/Hp(10) ranging between 0.7 and 1.1 indicating that in nuclear medicine procedures eye lens doses could probably be estimated from Hp(10) values and that exceeding the present annual dose limit to eye lens (150 mSv) is very unlikely. The relationship between different individual doses can indicate the quality of radiation protection in a nuclear medicine department.

The ethics of disease eradication  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper provides an examination of the ethics of disease eradication policies. It examines three arguments that have been advanced for thinking that eradication is in some way ethically exceptional as a policy goal. These are (1) global eradication has symbolic importance, (2) disease eradication is a global public good and (3) disease eradication is a form of rescue. It argues that none of these provides a good reason to think that individuals have special duties to facilitate eradication campaigns, or that public health authorities have special permissions to pursue them. But the fact that these arguments fail does not entail that global disease eradication is ethically problematic, or that it should not be undertaken. Global eradication of a disease, if successful, is a way of providing an enormous health benefit that stretches far into the future. There is no need to reach for the idea that there is a special duty to eradicate disease; the same considerations that are in play in ordinary public health policy – of reducing the burden of disease equitably and efficiently – suffice to make global disease eradication a compelling goal where doing so is feasible.

Gold nanoparticles-based brachytherapy enhancement in choroidal melanoma using a full Monte Carlo modelling of human eye  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Materials of high atomic number such as gold, can provide a high probability for photon interaction by photoelectric effects during radiation therapy. In cancer therapy, the object of brachytherapy as a kind of radiotherapy is to deliver adequate radiation dose to tumor while sparing surrounding healthy tissue. Several studies demonstrated that the preferential accumulation of gold nanoparticles within the tumor can enhance the absorbed dose by the tumor without increasing the radiation dose delivered externally. Accordingly, the required time for tumor irradiation decreases as the estimated adequate radiation dose for tumor is provided following this method. The dose delivered to healthy tissue is reduced when the time of irradiation is decreased. Hear, GNPs effects on choroidal Melanoma dosimetry is discussed by Monte Carlo study. Monte Carlo Ophthalmic brachytherapy dosimetry usually, is studied by simulation of water phantom. Considering the composition and density of eye material instead of water in thes...

Iris-fixated intraocular lens implantation to correct moderate to high myopia in Asian-Indian eyes: Five-year results  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Purpose To evaluate the efficacy, safety, predictability, and stability of iris-fixated phakic intraocular lenses (pIOLs) to correct high myopia in an Asian-Indian population. Setting Tertiary eyecare center. Design Interventional case series. Methods Eyes with myopia from ?5.5 to ?24.0 diopters (D) had pIOL implantation and were examined postoperatively at 1 day, 1 week, 1, 3, and 6 months, and yearly for 5 years. Parameters evaluated were postoperative uncorrected (UDVA) and corrected (CDVA) distance visual acuities, predictability, efficacy, stability of mean spherical equivalent (SE), and endothelial cell loss. Results The study enrolled 85 eyes (44 patients). The mean CDVA improved from 6/10 preoperatively to 6/7 postoperatively and the mean UDVA, from 6/319 to 6/9. Postoperatively, the mean SE was ?0.63 ± 0.55 D. Of the 51 eyes completing a 4-year follow-up; 19 (37.3%) had a mean SE of 0.50 D or less and 37 (72.5%) had a mean SE of 1.00 D or less. The CDVA improved 1 line or more in 35 eyes (68.6%); 14 eyes (27.5%) had postoperative CDVA similar to the preoperative CDVA. At 4 years, the safety index was 1.46 and the efficacy index, 0.96. Thirty-six eyes (70.6%) had a postoperative UDVA better than the preoperative CDVA. The mean endothelial cell loss at 1, 3, 6, 12, 24, 36, and 48 months was 4.3%, 5.7%, 7.1%, 7.6%, 8.7%, 9.2%, 11.07%, and 12.4% respectively. Twenty eyes (23.5%) had reenclavation for spontaneous or traumatic disenclavation. Conclusion Postsurgical refractive outcomes of iris-fixated pIOL implantation for myopia were fairly predictable and stable in an Asian-Indian population.

IMRT for Sinonasal Tumors Minimizes Severe Late Ocular Toxicity and Preserves Disease Control and Survival  

SciTech Connect

Purpose: To report late ocular (primary endpoint) and other toxicity, disease control, and survival (secondary endpoints) after intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for sinonasal tumors. Methods and Materials: Between 1998 and 2009, 130 patients with nonmetastatic sinonasal tumors were treated with IMRT at Ghent University Hospital. Prescription doses were 70 Gy (n = 117) and 60-66 Gy (n = 13) at 2 Gy per fraction over 6-7 weeks. Most patients had adenocarcinoma (n = 82) and squamous cell carcinoma (n = 23). One hundred and one (101) patients were treated postoperatively. Of 17 patients with recurrent tumors, 9 were reirradiated. T-stages were T1-2 (n = 39), T3 (n = 21), T4a (n = 38), and T4b (n = 22). Esthesioneuroblastoma was staged as Kadish A, B, and C in 1, 3, and 6 cases, respectively. Results: Median follow-up was 52, range 15-121 months. There was no radiation-induced blindness in 86 patients available for late toxicity assessment ({>=}6 month follow-up). We observed late Grade 3 tearing in 10 patients, which reduced to Grade 1-2 in 5 patients and Grade 3 visual impairment because of radiation-induced ipsilateral retinopathy and neovascular glaucoma in 1 patient. There was no severe dry eye syndrome. The worst grade of late ocular toxicity was Grade 3 (n = 11), Grade 2 (n = 31), Grade 1 (n = 33), and Grade 0 (n = 11). Brain necrosis and osteoradionecrosis occurred in 6 and 1 patients, respectively. Actuarial 5-year local control and overall survival were 59% and 52%, respectively. On multivariate analysis local control was negatively affected by cribriform plate and brain invasion (p = 0.044 and 0.029, respectively) and absence of surgery (p = 0.009); overall survival was negatively affected by cribriform plate and orbit invasion (p = 0.04 and <0.001, respectively) and absence of surgery (p = 0.001). Conclusions: IMRT for sinonasal tumors allowed delivering high doses to targets at minimized ocular toxicity, while maintaining disease control and survival. Avoidance of severe dry eye syndrome and radiation-induced blindness suggests IMRT as a standard treatment for sinonasal tumors.

Chapter 9 - Ebola Virus Disease  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Five species of ebolavirus constitute the genus Ebolavirus, one member of the Filoviridae family. The Bundibugyo, Zaire, and Sudan ebolavirus species cause severe Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreaks in humans whereas the Reston and Taď Forest species do not. EVD is a febrile hemorrhagic illness, which causes death in 25–90% of all clinically ill cases. EVD outbreaks occur primarily in remote villages in Central and West Africa, near tropical rainforests. The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission. Fruit bats of the Pteropodidae family are considered to be the natural host of the Ebola virus. The laboratory diagnostic remains essential to confirm EVD cases. There is no treatment or vaccine available for either people or animals. Raising awareness of the risk factors of Ebola infection and the protective measures individuals can take is the only way to reduce human infection and death.

Therapeutic target for protozoal diseases  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A novel Fasciclin Related Adhesive Protein (FRAP) from Plasmodium and related parasites is provided as a target for therapeutic intervention in diseases caused by the parasites. FRAP has been shown to play a critical role in adhesion to, or invasion into, host cells by the parasite. Furthermore, FRAP catalyzes the neutralization of heme by the parasite, by promoting its polymerization into hemozoin. This invention provides methods and compositions for therapies based on the administration of protein, DNA or cell-based vaccines and/or antibodies based on FRAP, or antigenic epitopes of FRAP, either alone or in combination with other parasite antigens. Methods for the development of compounds that inhibit the catalytic activity of FRAP, and diagnostic and laboratory methods utilizing FRAP are also provided.

Big Stick/Four Eyes fields: structural, stratigraphic, and hydrodynamic trapping within Mission Canyon Formation, Williston basin  

SciTech Connect

The Mississippian Mission Canyon formation of the Williston basin is the region's most prolific oil producing horizon. Big Stick/Four Eyes is among the most prolific of the Mission Canyon fields. Primary production from 87 wells is projected to reach 47 million bbl of oil. An additional 10-20 million bbl may be recovered through waterflooding. The complex was discovered in 1977 by the Tenneco 1-29 BN, a wildcat with primary objectives in the Devonian Duperow and Ordovician Red River Formations. A series of Mission Canyon discoveries followed in the Big Stick, Treetop, T-R, and Mystery Creek fields. Early pressure studies showed that these fields were part of an extensive common reservoir covering 44.75 mi/sup 2/ (115.91 km/sup 2/). The reservoir matrix is formed from restricted marine dolostones deposited on a low-relief ramp. Landward are algal-laminated peritidal limestones and saline and supratidal evaporites of a sabkhalike shoreline system. Open-marine limestones, rich in crinoids, brachiopods, and corals, mark the seaward limit of reservoir facies. Regressive deposition placed a blanket of anhydrite over the carbonate sequence providing a seal for the reservoir. Lateral trapping is accomplished through a combination of processes. Upper reservoir zones form belts of porosity that parallel the northeasterly trending shoreline. The trend is cut by the northward plunging Billings anticline, which provides structural closure to the north. Facies changes pinch out porosity to the south and east. Trapping along depositional strike to the southwest is only partially controlled by stratigraphic or structural factors. A gentle tilt of 25 ft per mi (5 m per km) occurs in the oil-water contact to the east-northeast, due to freshwater influx from Mississippian outcrop on the southern and southwestern basin margins.

Effect of physical form of whole ear corn silage (coarse vs wet milled) included at high dietary levels (30 vs 40% dry matter) on performance of heavy finishing pigs  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The aim of the trial was to compare two dietary levels of whole ear corn silage (ES), fed in two physical forms (coarse or after wet milling), on growth, slaughter traits and stomach development of heavy finishing pigs. Fifty six “Italian Large White × Italian Duroc” (about 5 months of age and 78–80 kg of live weight (LW) were divided into pairs homogeneous and were kept in 28 pens (1.2 × 3 m, partially-slatted) equipped with two separate troughs to avoid competitions for feeding and with free access to water. Four dietary treatments resulted from the combination of two ES inclusion levels (300 and 400 g/kg dry matter (DM), ES30 and ES40, respectively) and two physical forms of the silage (coarse and wet milled). Seven pairs of pigs were randomly assigned to each dietary treatment and the animals were slaughtered at an average LW of 163.0 kg (±1.9 kg). The coarse ES had particles longer than the milled silage (4.4 vs 2.7 mm) and when it was fed to pigs the pH of fecal samples were lower (Pmilled ES, at both dietary inclusion levels (6.00 vs 6.20 for the ES30 diets and 5.97 vs 6.14 for the ES40 diets). There were no significant differences in organic matter total tract digestibility, average daily gain, DM intake and gain:feed ratio among the dietary treatments (0.81, 764 g/d, 77.1 g DM/kg LW0.75, 0.266 g/g DM, on average, respectively). The ES40 diets reduced the Longissimus dorsi thickness (56.4–59.8 vs 62.7–64.1 mm, P<0.011) and increased the stomach weight (0.0040 vs 0.0038 of the LW, P<0.05), while the coarse dimension of silage particles increased the DM content of the material in the stomach (from 142–171 to 179–183 g/kg DM, P<0.045) and the surface of the pyloric region (from 214–216 to 225–232 cm2, P<0.029). The two dietary inclusion levels and physical forms of ES do not differentiate growth and slaughter traits of the heavy finishing pigs. However, the coarse form of the silage modifies the development of the stomach by increasing the internal surface of the pyloric region as a possible consequence of a longer retention time in the stomach.

Visualizing Brain Metals in Health and Visualizing Brain Metals in Health and Disease figure 1 Fig. 1. Rapid-scanning x-ray fluorescence mapping ex perimental setup. Synchrotron x-rays at 11 keV passed through a 50 µm aperture (Ap). The beam intensity was monitored with a N2-filled ion chamber (I0). The brain slice was mounted vertically on a motorized stage (St) at 45° to the incident x-ray beam and raster scanned in the beam. A 13-element Ge detector (Ge) was positioned at a 90° angle to the beam. We all require iron, copper and zinc for normal brain function but metal metabolism becomes dysregulated in a variety of neurodegenerative diseases. Metals accumulate in Alzheimer's dementia and Parkinson's disease and are deficient in Menkes disease. Whether excess metals appear as a cause or a

Nanomedicine approaches in vascular disease: a review  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Nanomedicine approaches have revolutionized the treatment of cancer and vascular diseases, where the limitations of rapid nonspecific clearance, poor biodistribution and harmful side effects associated with direct systemic drug administration can be overcome by packaging the agents within sterically stabilized, long-circulating nanovehicles that can be further surface-modified with ligands to actively target cellular/molecular components of the disease. With significant advancements in genetics, proteomics, cellular and molecular biology and biomaterials engineering, the nanomedicine strategies have become progressively refined regarding the modulation of surface and bulk chemistry of the nanovehicles, control of drug release kinetics, manipulation of nanoconstruct geometry and integration of multiple functionalities on single nanoplatforms. The current review aims to capture the various nanomedicine approaches directed specifically toward vascular diseases during the past two decades. Analysis of the promises and limitations of these approaches will help identify and optimize vascular nanomedicine systems to enhance their efficacy and clinical translation in the future. From the Clinical Editor Nanomedicine-based approaches have had a major impact on the treatment and diagnosis of malignancies and vascular diseases. This review discusses various nanomedicine approaches directed specifically toward vascular diseases during the past two decades, highlighting their advantages, limitations and offering new perspectives on future applications.

Molecular tendrils feeding star formation in the Eye of the Medusa - The Medusa merger in high resolution 12CO 2-1 maps  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Studying molecular gas properties in merging galaxies gives us important clues to the onset and evolution of interaction-triggered starbursts. NGC4194 is particularly interesting to study since its FIR-to-CO luminosity ratio rivals that of ULIRGs,despite its lower luminosity compared to ULIRGs, which indicates a high star formation efficiency that is relative to even most spirals and ULIRGs.We study the molecular medium at an angular resolution of 0.65"x .52" through our observations of CO2-1 emission using the SMA. We compare our CO2-1 maps with optical HST and high angular resolution radio continuum images to study the relationship between molecular gas and other components of the starburst region. The molecular gas is tracing the complicated dust lane structure of NGC4194 with the brightest emission being located in an off-nuclear ring-like structure with ~320pc radius, the Eye of the Medusa. The bulk CO emission of the ring is found south of the kinematical center of NGC4194. The northern tip of the ring ...

Analysis of Dose Response for Circulatory Disease After Radiotherapy for Benign Disease  

SciTech Connect

Purpose: To assess the shape of the dose-response for various circulatory disease endpoints, and modifiers by age and time since exposure. Methods and Materials: This was an analysis of the US peptic ulcer data testing for heterogeneity of radiogenic risk by circulatory disease endpoint (ischemic heart, cerebrovascular, other circulatory disease). Results: There were significant excess risks for all circulatory disease, with an excess relative risk Gy{sup -1} of 0.082 (95% CI 0.031-0.140), and ischemic heart disease, with an excess relative risk Gy{sup -1} of 0.102 (95% CI 0.039-0.174) (both p = 0.01), and indications of excess risk for stroke. There were no statistically significant (p > 0.2) differences between risks by endpoint, and few indications of curvature in the dose-response. There were significant (p < 0.001) modifications of relative risk by time since exposure, the magnitude of which did not vary between endpoints (p > 0.2). Risk modifications were similar if analysis was restricted to patients receiving radiation, although the relative risks were slightly larger and the risk of stroke failed to be significant. The slopes of the dose-response were generally consistent with those observed in the Japanese atomic bomb survivors and in occupationally and medically exposed groups. Conclusions: There were excess risks for a variety of circulatory diseases in this dataset, with significant modification of risk by time since exposure. The consistency of the dose-response slopes with those observed in radiotherapeutically treated groups at much higher dose, as well as in lower dose-exposed cohorts such as the Japanese atomic bomb survivors and nuclear workers, implies that there may be little sparing effect of fractionation of dose or low-dose-rate exposure.

FISH CONSUMPTION, METHYLMERCURY, AND HUMAN HEART DISEASE.  

SciTech Connect

Environmental mercury continues to be of concern to public health advocates, both in the U.S. and abroad, and new research continues to be published. A recent analysis of potential health benefits of reduced mercury emissions has opened a new area of public health concern: adverse effects on the cardiovascular system, which could account for the bulk of the potential economic benefits. The authors were careful to include caveats about the uncertainties of such impacts, but they cited only a fraction of the applicable health effects literature. That literature includes studies of the potentially harmful ingredient (methylmercury, MeHg) in fish, as well as of a beneficial ingredient, omega-3 fatty acids or ''fish oils''. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently certified that some of these fat compounds that are primarily found in fish ''may be beneficial in reducing coronary heart disease''. This paper briefly summarizes and categorizes the extensive literature on both adverse and beneficial links between fish consumption and cardiovascular health, which are typically based on studies of selected groups of individuals (cohorts). Such studies tend to comprise the ''gold standard'' of epidemiology, but cohorts tend to exhibit a great deal of variability, in part because of the limited numbers of individuals involved and in part because of interactions with other dietary and lifestyle considerations. Note that eating fish will involve exposure to both the beneficial effects of fatty acids and the potentially harmful effects of contaminants like Hg or PCBs, all of which depend on the type of fish but tend to be correlated within a population. As a group, the cohort studies show that eating fish tends to reduce mortality, especially due to heart disease, for consumption rates up to about twice weekly, above which the benefits tend to level off. A Finnish cohort study showed increased mortality risks in the highest fish-consuming group ({approx}3 times/wk), which had mercury exposures (mean hair content of 3.9 ppm) much higher than those seen in the United States. As an adjunct to this cursory review, we also present some new ''ecological'' analyses based on international statistics on hair Hg, fish consumption, other dietary and lifestyle factors, and selected cardiovascular health endpoints. We searched for consistent differences between primarily fish-consuming nations, like Japan or the Seychelles, and others who traditionally eat much less fish , such as in central Europe, for example. We use data on cigarette sales, smoking prevalence surveys, and national lung cancer mortality rates to control for the effects of smoking on heart disease. These ecological analyses do not find significant adverse associations of either fish consumption or hair Hg with cardiovascular health; instead, there is a consistent trend towards beneficial effects, some of which are statistically significant. However, such ecological studies cannot distinguish differences due to variations in individual rates of fish consumption. We conclude that the extant epidemiological evidence does not support the existence of significant heart disease risks associated with mercury in fish, for the United States. The most prudent advice would continue to be that of maintaining a well-balanced diet, including fish or shellfish at least once per week. There may be additional benefits from fatty fish.

Networks and the Epidemiology of Infectious Disease  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The science of networks has revolutionised research into the dynamics of interacting elements. It could be argued that epidemiology in particular has embraced the potential of network theory more than any other discipline. Here we review the growing body of research concerning the spread of infectious diseases on networks, focusing on the interplay between network theory and epidemiology. The review is split into four main sections, which examine: the types of network relevant to epidemiology; the multitude of ways these networks can be characterised; the statistical methods that can be applied to infer the epidemiological parameters on a realised network; and finally simulation and analytical methods to determine epidemic dynamics on a given network. Given the breadth of areas covered and the ever-expanding number of publications, a comprehensive review of all work is impossible. Instead, we provide a personalised overview into the areas of network epidemiology that have seen the greatest progress in recent ...

Relationship between dental disease and radiation necrosis of the mandible  

SciTech Connect

Preirradiation panoramic radiographs of forty-six dentate patients were examined for the presence of significant dental disease. Evidence of a positive association between dental disease present before radiation therapy and subsequent necrosis of the mandible was found leading to a recommendation that significant disease be eradicated before irradiation of oral tissues. Considerable suffering results from bone necrosis, which can be reduced by careful and rational dental diagnosis and treatment.

Mitochondrial DNA variants observed in Alzheimer disease and Parkinson disease patients  

SciTech Connect

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variants associated with Alzheimer disease (AD) and Parkinson disease (PD) were sought by restriction endonuclease analysis in a cohort of 71 late-onset Caucasian patients. A tRNA[sup Gln] gene variant at nucleotide pair (np) 4336 that altered a moderately conserved nucleotide was present in 9/173 (5.2%) of the patients surveyed but in only 0.7% of the general Caucasian controls. One of these patients harbored an additional novel 12S rRNA 5-nucleotide insertion at np 956-965, while a second had a missense variant at np 3397 that converted a highly conserved methionine to a valine. This latter mutation was also found in an independent AD + PD patient, as was a heteroplasmic 16S rRNA variant at np 3196. Additional studies will be required to determine the significance, if any, of these mutations. 122 refs., 4 figs., 2 tabs.

Particulate matter and heart disease: Evidence from epidemiological studies  

SciTech Connect

The association between particulate matter and heart disease was noted in the mid-nineties of last century when the epidemiological evidence for an association between air pollution and hospital admissions due to cardiovascular disease accumulated and first hypotheses regarding the pathomechanism were formulated. Nowadays, epidemiological studies have demonstrated coherent associations between daily changes in concentrations of ambient particles and cardiovascular disease mortality, hospital admission, disease exacerbation in patients with cardiovascular disease and early physiological responses in healthy individuals consistent with a risk factor profile deterioration. In addition, evidence was found that annual average PM{sub 2.5} exposures are associated with increased risks for mortality caused by ischemic heart disease and dysrhythmia. Thereby, evidence is suggesting not only a short-term exacerbation of cardiovascular disease by ambient particle concentrations but also a potential role of particles in defining patients' vulnerability to acute coronary events. While this concept is consistent with the current understanding of the factors defining patients' vulnerability, the mechanisms and the time-scales on which the particle-induced vulnerability might operate are unknown.

A novel method for observation by unaided eyes of nitrogen ion tracks and angular distribution in a plasma focus device using 50 Hz–HV electrochemically-etched polycarbonate detectors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A novel ion detection method has been developed and studied in this paper for the first time to detect and observe tracks of nitrogen ions and their angular distribution by unaided eyes in the Amirkabir 4 kJ plasma focus device (PFD). The method is based on electrochemical etching (ECE) of nitrogen ion tracks in 1 mm thick large area polycarbonate (PC) detectors. The ECE method employed a specially designed and constructed large area ECE chamber by applying a 50 Hz–high voltage (HV) generator under optimized ECE conditions. The nitrogen ion tracks and angular distribution were efficiently (constructed for this study) amplified to a point observable by the unaided eyes. The beam profile and angular distribution of nitrogen ion tracks in the central axes of the beam and two- and three-dimensional iso-ion track density distributions showing micro-beam spots were determined. The distribution of ion track density along the central axes versus angular position shows double humps around a dip at the 0° angular positions. The method introduced in this paper proved to be quite efficient for ion beam profile and characteristic studies in \\{PFDs\\} with potential for ion detection studies and other relevant dosimetry applications.

Snakes Snakes Nature Bulletin No. 36 October 13, 1945 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation SNAKES If you were a snake you would never have an earache or get dust in your eye. They have inner ears but no trace of an outside ear or eardrum, A sleeping snake will pay no attention to shouts or banging on a tin pan, but rouses immediately when a man or other animal walks near. Apparently snakes hear by feeling the vibrations of the earth, just as a person can hear a distant train by putting his ear to the track. Snakes are very short-sighted, their eyes being specially constructed for focusing on nearby small objects. That "glassy stare" is produced by a transparent cap or lid which covers the eye and cannot be moved. The eyeball inside is just as movable as yours.

Chapter 18 - Epigenetic Aberrations in Human Allergic Diseases  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The epidemic rise in childhood allergic diseases is clear evidence that the developing immune system is highly vulnerable to modern environmental change. Together with observed presymptomatic differences in immune functions at birth, this suggests that environmental exposures during pregnancy are critical in determining the allergic risk of the offspring. A range of intrauterine exposures such as maternal dietary factors, exposure to microbes, pollutants, and maternal smoking are implicated in fetal immune programming and the risk of allergic diseases. Concepts of epigenetic modulation of gene expression now provide a mechanistic link for these complex early gene–environmental interactions which appear to alter subsequent disease predisposition and potential heritability of disease risk across generations. As such, epigenetic changes provide a novel framework to explain the exponential rise in the prevalence of allergic diseases and other immune disorders within several generations. This is now supported by preliminary evidence that specific intrauterine exposures are associated with epigenetic changes in the expression of genes linked with either immune programming or an allergic phenotype in the offspring. Moreover, there are now examples of how these specific epigenetic effects can be passed on to subsequent generations. This new frontier provides not only novel insights into the understanding of complex immune diseases but also offers new opportunities to explore environmental strategies that can curb or even reverse the allergy epidemic through safe and effective reprogramming of gene expression during early development. While this possibility might now only appear as a distant horizon, the inherent epigenetic plasticity and observed capacity for intergenerational changes in disease predisposition offer great hope.

Laser mass spectrometry for DNA sequencing, disease diagnosis, and fingerprinting  

SciTech Connect

Since laser mass spectrometry has the potential for achieving very fast DNA analysis, the authors recently applied it to DNA sequencing, DNA typing for fingerprinting, and DNA screening for disease diagnosis. Two different approaches for sequencing DNA have been successfully demonstrated. One is to sequence DNA with DNA ladders produced from Snager`s enzymatic method. The other is to do direct sequencing without DNA ladders. The need for quick DNA typing for identification purposes is critical for forensic application. The preliminary results indicate laser mass spectrometry can possibly be used for rapid DNA fingerprinting applications at a much lower cost than gel electrophoresis. Population screening for certain genetic disease can be a very efficient step to reducing medical costs through prevention. Since laser mass spectrometry can provide very fast DNA analysis, the authors applied laser mass spectrometry to disease diagnosis. Clinical samples with both base deletion and point mutation have been tested with complete success.

The samples were obtained from donors at Sao Paulo city (Brazil). The analyses were performed in the nuclear reactor IEA-R1 (3.5-4.5MW, pool type) at IPEN/CNEN-SP (Brazil). Considerable changes in Ca and S saliva's level were identified in patients with periodontal disease suggesting they can be used as monitors of periodontal diseases.

This article is a revision of the previous edition article by Rose-Mary Boustany, Talal Mousallem, volume 3, pp 2449–2485, © 2007, Elsevier Ltd. Advances have been made in the sphingolipidoses and the many forms of Batten disease. Defects in sphingolipid synthetic enzymes and new Batten genes are identified. There is improved understanding of genetic diseases. Enzyme replacement/substrate reduction therapy are proving beneficial. Chaperones raise residual enzyme activities. Drugs affecting biochemical processes are emerging. Presymptomatic bone marrow replacement benefits certain sphingolipidoses. Viral gene therapies are encouraging in animal models Neural/non-neural stem cell therapies are under study. Efficient enzyme delivery into brain of animals/humans is being developed. These novel interventions are imperfect, and medicine is complex. Screening programs/genetic counseling/prenatal diagnosis remain the mainstays of prevention.

Biological Agents and Infectious Diseases in War and Terrorism  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

War and the preparation for war cause serious damage to human health and the environment. Several biologic agents can be weaponized, but biologic weapons have been rarely used during war or in terrorist attacks. Of much greater concern is the increased occurrence of infectious diseases during war and its aftermath due to damage to medical care and public health facilities and the health-supporting infrastructure, forced migration of refugees and internally displaced persons, and diversion of human and financial resources. Although biologic weapons have almost never been used effectively in war and terrorism, they represent a potential threat. Biologic weapons are difficult to develop, access, and use in warfare or terrorist attacks. Nevertheless, it is important for health professionals and others to have an awareness of these potential weapons and what can be done to control them and prevent their use. Infectious diseases frequently increase in occurrence or severity during war and its aftermath. These include diarrheal diseases, acute respiratory infections, measles, malaria, meningococcal disease, and tuberculosis. Health professionals and others can play important roles in addressing these issues, by working to minimize the adverse consequences of war and terrorism and by helping to create a world without war and terrorism.

A 3-D Link between Antibiotic Resistance and Brain Disease A 3-D Link between Antibiotic Resistance and Brain Disease The story of what makes certain types of bacteria resistant to a specific antibiotic has a sub-plot that gives insight into the cause of a rare form of brain degeneration among children, according to investigators at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The story takes a twist as key differences among the structures of its main molecular characters disappear and reappear as they are assembled in the cell. The story is based on a study of the three-dimensional (3-D) structure of an enzyme called pantothenate kinase, which triggers the first step in the production coenzyme A (CoA), a molecule that is indispensable to all forms of life. Enzymes are proteins that speed up biochemical reactions. CoA plays a pivotal role in the cells' ability to extract energy from fatty

Mapping infectious disease landscapes: unmanned aerial vehicles and epidemiology  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The potential applications of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or drones, have generated intense interest across many fields. \\{UAVs\\} offer the potential to collect detailed spatial information in real time at relatively low cost and are being used increasingly in conservation and ecological research. Within infectious disease epidemiology and public health research, \\{UAVs\\} can provide spatially and temporally accurate data critical to understanding the linkages between disease transmission and environmental factors. Using \\{UAVs\\} avoids many of the limitations associated with satellite data (e.g., long repeat times, cloud contamination, low spatial resolution). However, the practicalities of using \\{UAVs\\} for field research limit their use to specific applications and settings. \\{UAVs\\} fill a niche but do not replace existing remote-sensing methods.

Using Genomics to Study Human Biology and Disease  

SciTech Connect

The Human Genome Project culminated in April 2003 with the finished DNA sequence of all of the human chromosomes. This book of information, particularly in conjunction with the genome sequences of many other organisms, has already begun to revolutionize the way that biomedical scientists study our species. The identification of essentially all of our genes has provided a template upon which researchers can discover basic processes that govern cells, organs, and the whole organism, and to understand the fundamental causes of the diseases that occur when something goes wrong with a gene or a set of genes. The Genome Project has already made it possible to identify the genes that are defective in more than 1,000 rare inherited diseases, and these discoveries have helped to understand the mechanisms of the more common forms of these disorders. This understanding of primary defects in diseases - which is translated as mutations in genes that encode proteins that serve specific functions - is transforming the way that biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies identify drug targets, and a few notable cases have already had a striking impact on specific diseases. In addition, it has become clear that the differential response to drugs in human populations is heavily influenced by genes, and a whole field called pharmacogenetics has begun to identify these genetic factors. Such knowledge will allow physicians to prescribe drugs targeted to each individual, with the potential to increase efficacy and decrease side-effects. Determining the DNA sequence of the human genome and identifying the genes has been an exciting endeavor, but we are only just beginning to understand the treasures present in all of our DNA. My presentation will briefly describe the road we took to get the sequence, as well as the tools that we are developing to unlock its secrets.

Abstract Here, we describe a nonsense haplotype in PRNP associated with clinical Alzheimer's disease. The patient presented an early-onset of cognitive decline with memory loss as the primary cognitive problem. Whole-exome sequencing revealed a nonsense mutation in PRNP (NM_000311, c.C478T; p.Q160*; rs80356711) associated with homozygosity for the V allele at position 129 of the protein, further highlighting how very similar genotypes in PRNP result in strikingly different phenotypes.

Development and Deployment of a Compact Eye-Safe Scanning Differential absorption Lidar (DIAL) for Spatial Mapping of Carbon Dioxide for Monitoring/Verification/Accounting at Geologic Sequestration Sites  

SciTech Connect

A scanning differential absorption lidar (DIAL) instrument for monitoring carbon dioxide has been developed. The laser transmitter uses two tunable discrete mode laser diodes (DMLD) operating in the continuous wave (cw) mode with one locked to the online absorption wavelength and the other operating at the offline wavelength. Two in-line fiber optic switches are used to switch between online and offline operation. After the fiber optic switch, an acousto- optic modulator (AOM) is used to generate a pulse train used to injection seed an erbium doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) to produce eye-safe laser pulses with maximum pulse energies of 66 {micro}J, a pulse repetition frequency of 15 kHz, and an operating wavelength of 1.571 {micro}m. The DIAL receiver uses a 28 cm diameter Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope to collect that backscattered light, which is then monitored using a photo-multiplier tube (PMT) module operating in the photon counting mode. The DIAL instrument has been operated from a laboratory environment on the campus of Montana State University, at the Zero Emission Research Technology (ZERT) field site located in the agricultural research area on the western end of the Montana State University campus, and at the Big Sky Carbon Sequestration Partnership site located in north-central Montana. DIAL data has been collected and profiles have been validated using a co-located Licor LI-820 Gas Analyzer point sensor.

New England Foot and Mouth Disease Tabletop Exercise  

SciTech Connect

The Multiscale Epidemiologic/Economic Simulation and Analysis (MESA) Decision Support System (DSS) is the product of investments that began in FY05 by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate and continue today with joint funding by both DHS and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). The DSS consists of a coupled epidemiologic/economic model, a standalone graphical user interface (GUI) that supports both model setup and post-analysis, and a Scenario Bank archive to store all content related to foreign animal disease (FAD) studies (Figure 1). The MESA epi model is an object-oriented, agent-based, stochastic, spatio-temporal simulator that parametrically models FAD outbreaks and response strategies from initial disease introduction to conclusion over local, regional, and national scales. Through its output database, the epi model couples to an economic model that calculates farm-level impacts from animal infections, responsive control strategies and loss of trade. The MESA architecture contains a variety of internal models that implement the major components of the epi simulation, including disease introduction, intra-herd spread, inter-herd spread (direct and indirect), detection, and various control strategies (movement restrictions, culling, vaccination) in a highly configurable and extensible fashion. MESA will produce both overall and daily summary statistics for the outbreak, epidemic curves, and costs associated with the outbreak. This information can be used to reconstruct and analyze the course of the outbreak. Geographical information produced by MESA can be used to produce maps and movies as visual aids to understand the distribution characteristics of a simulated outbreak.

Chapter 5 Lyme Disease Spirochete–Tick–Host Interactions  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Ticks and hosts engage in a subtle interplay during the period ticks take blood from vertebrate hosts. While the host mounts an inflammatory and immune response to the tick bite, ticks modulate this response through anti-haemostatic, anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive components in their saliva. In the midst of this process, a tick-borne bacterial agent, the Lyme disease spirochete (Borrelia burgdorferi), takes advantage of tick-derived proteins to maximize its chances of surviving transmission from the tick to the vertebrate host and then back to the tick again. The tick–spirochete–host interrelationship is the subject of this chapter.

Hippocampal novelty activations in schizophrenia: Disease and medication effects  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We examined hippocampal activation in schizophrenia (SZ) with fMRI BOLD in response to the presentation of novel and familiar scenes. Voxel-wise analysis showed no group differences. However, anatomical region-of-interest analyses contrasting normal (NL), SZ-on-medication (SZ-ON), SZ-off-medication (SZ-OFF) showed substantial differences in MTL-based novelty responding, accounted for by the reduction in novelty responses in the SZ-OFF predominantly in the anterior hippocampus and parahippocampal cortex. These differences in novelty-based activation in the SZ-OFF group represent disease characteristics of schizophrenia without confounding effects of antipsychotic medication and illustrate the tendency of antipsychotic drug treatment to improve memory functions in schizophrenia.

Galaxies, Human Eyes and Artificial Neural Networks  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Quantitative morphological classification of galaxies is important for understanding the origin of type frequency and correlations with environment. But galaxy morphological classification is still mainly done visually by dedicated individuals, in the spirit of Hubble's original scheme, and its modifications. The rapid increase in data on galaxy images at low and high redshift calls for re-examination of the classification schemes and for new automatic methods. Here we show results from the first systematic comparison of the dispersion among human experts classifying a uniformly selected sample of over 800 digitised galaxy images. These galaxy images were then classified by six of the authors independently. The human classifications are compared with each other, and with an automatic classification by Artificial Neural Networks (ANN). It is shown that the ANNs can replicate the classification by a human expert to the same degree of agreement as that between two human experts.
