Dynamics of Airborne Influenza A Viruses Indoors and Dependence on Humidity
There is mounting evidence that the aerosol transmission route plays a significant role in the spread of influenza in temperate regions and that the efficiency of this route depends on humidity. Nevertheless, the precise ...
Reduced erbium-doped ceria nanoparticles: one nano-host applicable for simultaneous optical down- and up-conversions
This paper introduces a new synthesis procedure to form erbium-doped ceria nanoparticles (EDC NPs) that can act as an optical medium for both up-conversion and down-conversion in the same time. This synthesis process results ...
Mammalian Brain Development is Accompanied by a Dramatic Increase in Bipolar DNA Methylation
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-09-02)
Seasonal Dynamics of the Airborne Bacterial Community and Selected Viruses in a Children's Daycare Center
Children’s daycare centers appear to be hubs of respiratory infectious disease transmission, yet there is only limited information about the airborne microbial communities that are present in daycare centers. We have ...
Relationship between Humidity and Influenza A Viability in Droplets and Implications for Influenza's Seasonality
Humidity has been associated with influenza’s seasonality, but the mechanisms underlying the relationship remain unclear. There is no consistent explanation for influenza’s transmission patterns that applies to both temperate ...
Prediabetes Phenotype Influences Improvements in Glucose Homeostasis with Resistance Training
Purpose To determine if prediabetes phenotype influences improvements in glucose homeostasis with resistance training (RT). Methods Older, overweight individuals with prediabetes (n = 159; aged 60±5 yrs; BMI 33±4 ...
Disruption of astrocyte-vascular coupling and the blood-brain barrier by invading glioma cells
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014-06-01)
Shared Resistance to Aging and ALS in Neuromuscular Junctions of Specific Muscles
Normal aging and neurodegenerative diseases both lead to structural and functional alterations in synapses. Comparison of synapses that are generally similar but respond differently to insults could provide the basis for ...
7.0-T Magnetic Resonance Imaging Characterization of Acute Blood-Brain-Barrier Disruption Achieved with Intracranial Irreversible Electroporation
The blood-brain-barrier (BBB) presents a significant obstacle to the delivery of systemically administered chemotherapeutics for the treatment of brain cancer. Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is an emerging technology ...
