Intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation in US and non-US centres: results of the Benchmark Registry. (1/79)

AIMS: To examine differences in patient characteristics and outcomes in 19636 patients enrolled in the USA and 3027 patients enrolled in other countries undergoing intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) counterpulsation. METHODS AND RESULTS: Indications for IABP use; a larger percentage of US patients were identified as 'early support and stabilization for angiography or angioplasty' (21.1% US vs 11.8% non-US), and 'pre-operative support for high-risk CABG' (15.9% vs 6.6%). A smaller percentage of US patients vs non-US patients were identified as 'weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass' (14.3% vs 28.2%), and 'refractory ventricular failure' (6.2% vs 9.8%). One out of five patients in both groups was listed as 'cardiogenic shock' (18.9% US vs 20.2% non-US). All cause, risk-adjusted, in-hospital mortality (20.1% vs 28.7%; P<0.001), and mortality with IABP in place (10.8% vs 18.0%; P<0.001) were lower at US vs non-US sites. In both US and non-US institutions, IABP associated complication rates, such as IABP-related mortality (0.05% vs 0.07%), major limb ischaemia (0.9% vs 0.8%), and severe bleeding (0.9% vs 0.8%), were low. CONCLUSIONS: IABP counterpulsation is deployed at an earlier clinical stage in US patients. Mortality rates are higher for non-US patients, particularly for patients with non-surgery cardiac interventions, even after adjusting for risk factors. Complication rates were low. Physicians should therefore not be reluctant to use IABP in high-risk patients undergoing cardiac procedures.  (+info)

International variation in the use of evidence-based medicines for acute coronary syndromes. (2/79)

AIMS: We sought to evaluate international patterns of use and factors influencing use of evidence-based medications early after ACS. METHODS AND RESULTS: Using a database of 15904 ACS patients enrolled in the SYMPHONY and 2nd SYMPHONY trials in 37 countries, we performed descriptive and logistic regression analyses. After controlling for other factors, region was significantly associated with the use of every class of evidence-based medication, most pronounced for intravenous unfractionated heparin (IV UFH), low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH), angiotensin II converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) and discharge use of lipid-lowering agents. Latin America and Eastern Europe were among the highest users of early ACEI, yet the lowest users of discharge lipid-lowering therapy. Relative to the United States, all regions except Canada had greater use of LMWH and lower use of IV UFH. Compared with patients with acute myocardial infarction, those with unstable angina less often received aspirin, beta-blockers, ACEI, or IV UFH. Older age was associated with lower use of aspirin, beta-blockers, IV UFH, and lipid-lowering agents. CONCLUSIONS: Use of evidence-based therapies for management of ACS patients is strongly associated with region. To improve patient outcomes, more research is needed to understand this variation, and to institute appropriate solutions.  (+info)

Evolution of duplicate control regions in the mitochondrial genomes of metazoa: a case study with Australasian Ixodes ticks. (3/79)

To investigate the evolution pattern and phylogenetic utility of duplicate control regions (CRs) in mitochondrial (mt) genomes, we sequenced the entire mt genomes of three Ixodes species and part of the mt genomes of another 11 species. All the species from the Australasian lineage have duplicate CRs, whereas the other species have one CR. Sequence analyses indicate that the two CRs of the Australasian Ixodes ticks have evolved in concert in each species. In addition to the Australasian Ixodes ticks, species from seven other lineages of metazoa also have mt genomes with duplicate CRs. Accumulated mtDNA sequence data from these metazoans and two recent experiments on replication of mt genomes in human cell lines with duplicate CRs allowed us to re-examine four intriguing questions about the presence of duplicate CRs in the mt genomes of metazoa: (1) Why do some mt genomes, but not others, have duplicate CRs? (2) How did mt genomes with duplicate CRs evolve? (3) How could the nucleotide sequences of duplicate CRs remain identical or very similar over evolutionary time? (4) Are duplicate CRs phylogenetic markers? It appears that mt genomes with duplicate CRs have a selective advantage in replication over mt genomes with one CR. Tandem duplication followed by deletion of genes is the most plausible mechanism for the generation of mt genomes with duplicate CRs. Once duplicate CRs occur in an mt genome, they tend to evolve in concert, probably by gene conversion. However, there are lineages where gene conversion may not always occur, and, thus, the two CRs may evolve independently in these lineages. Duplicate CRs have much potential as phylogenetic markers at low taxonomic levels, such as within genera, within families, or among families, but not at high taxonomic levels, such as among orders.  (+info)

Worldwide phylogeography of wild boar reveals multiple centers of pig domestication. (4/79)

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences from 686 wild and domestic pig specimens place the origin of wild boar in island Southeast Asia (ISEA), where they dispersed across Eurasia. Previous morphological and genetic evidence suggested pig domestication took place in a limited number of locations (principally the Near East and Far East). In contrast, new genetic data reveal multiple centers of domestication across Eurasia and that European, rather than Near Eastern, wild boar are the principal source of modern European domestic pigs.  (+info)

External quality assurance of DNA testing for thrombophilia mutations. (5/79)

Because of the potential implications of results of genetic analyses of thrombophilic mutations, laboratories must undertake stringent internal quality control measures and participate in external quality assurance (QA) programs. A small number of external QA surveys of thrombophilic defects have been conducted across a large number of molecular laboratories and generally have indicated favorable levels of correct responses. The Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia QA program has conducted external QA testing of factor V Leiden G1691 A, prothrombin G20210A, and MTHFR C677T gene mutations for the past 5 years, including 133 DNA samples in 10 multilaboratory surveys. Of 3,799 responses, the overall success rate was 98.63%; the poorest individual sample result was 15% incorrect for a homozygous factor V Leiden sample. Success rates in identifying specific mutations were 98.13% for factor V Leiden, 98.84% for prothrombin G20210A, and 99.3% for the MTHFR C677T mutation. Among responding laboratories, 51% (20/39) made at least 1 error; 3 of 39 laboratories were responsible for 46% of all errors (24/52). Although encouraging, these data underscore the need for ongoing participation of molecular diagnostic laboratories in external QA programs to ensure the provision of quality genetic testing services.  (+info)

Single, rapid coastal settlement of Asia revealed by analysis of complete mitochondrial genomes. (6/79)

A recent dispersal of modern humans out of Africa is now widely accepted, but the routes taken across Eurasia are still disputed. We show that mitochondrial DNA variation in isolated "relict" populations in southeast Asia supports the view that there was only a single dispersal from Africa, most likely via a southern coastal route, through India and onward into southeast Asia and Australasia. There was an early offshoot, leading ultimately to the settlement of the Near East and Europe, but the main dispersal from India to Australia approximately 65,000 years ago was rapid, most likely taking only a few thousand years.  (+info)

Smoking, quitting, and the risk of cardiovascular disease among women and men in the Asia-Pacific region. (7/79)

BACKGROUND: Although smoking is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, it has been suggested that Asians may be less susceptible to the adverse effects of smoking than Caucasians. This may have contributed to the high prevalence of smoking, and the low quitting rates, in Asian men. Worldwide, smoking rates are increasing for women, amongst whom cardiovascular awareness is relatively poor. METHODS: An individual participant data analysis of 40 cohort studies was carried out, involving 463 674 Asians (33% female) and 98 664 Australasians (45% female). Cox proportional hazard models, stratified by study and sex where appropriate, were employed. RESULTS: The HR [95% confidence interval (CI)], comparing current smokers with non-smokers, for coronary heart disease (CHD) was 1.60 (1.49-1.72); haemorrhagic stroke 1.19 (1.06-1.33); ischaemic stroke 1.38 (1.24-1.54). There was a clear dose-response relationship between the number of cigarettes smoked per day and both CHD and stroke, with no significant difference (P >/= 0.20) between populations from Asia and Australia/New Zealand. Although there was no sex difference for stroke in the effect of amount smoked (P = 0.16), for CHD, women tended to have higher hazard ratios than men (P = 0.011). Quitting gave a clear benefit, which was not significantly different between the sexes or regions (P > 0.63). The HR (CI) for ex-smokers compared with current smokers was 0.71 (0.64-0.78) for CHD and 0.84 (0.76-0.92) for stroke. CONCLUSIONS: Unless urgent public health measures are put into place, the impact of the smoking epidemic in Asia, and among women, will be enormous. Tobacco control policies that specifically target these populations are essential.  (+info)

Relation between baseline risk and treatment decisions in non-ST elevation acute coronary syndromes: an examination of international practice patterns. (8/79)

OBJECTIVES: To examine the interaction between ST segment depression on the baseline ECG and subsequent in-hospital revascularisation on six month mortality among patients with non-ST elevation acute coronary syndromes. To examine whether ST segment depression influenced clinical decision making and whether there was international variation in the use of cardiac procedures across ST segment depression categories. METHODS: 11 453 patients enrolled in GUSTO-IIB (global use of strategies to open occluded coronary arteries), PARAGON (platelet IIb/IIIa antagonism for the reduction of acute coronary syndrome events in a global organisation network) -A, and PARAGON-B were studied. Patients were categorised as having no ST segment depression, 1 mm ST segment depression in two contiguous leads, and ST segment depression > or = 2 mm in two contiguous leads. International practice across four geographic regions was examined: USA, Canada, Europe, and Australia/New Zealand. RESULTS: Revascularisation appeared to have no impact on survival among patients with no ST segment depression; however, revascularisation was associated with a significant survival benefit among patients with ST segment depression > or = 1 mm. There was an inverse relation between the extent of ST segment depression and the use of angiography as well as angioplasty (p < 0.01). However, patients with ST segment depression > or = 2 mm were more likely to undergo bypass surgery. The only significant trend of increasing use of revascularisation procedures with increasing ST segment depression was observed in the USA. CONCLUSIONS: International practice patterns in procedure use appear to be insensitive to the extent of ST segment depression. Major opportunities for more efficient delivery of care exist in all regions.  (+info)

They are, however, still not assured of reaching adulthood (the age of consent) without being subjected to genital cutting practices. The most common reason cited for the circumcision of post-infant boys is a diagnosis of phimosis. The predominant (traditional)…

The Indian centric view of Migration is holding up over the colonial occupational west centric view. That Migration went from Africa to India. With a movement back into central asia, west asia, and europe, and migration going east into australia, then a later migration into south east asia. No matter how much racism was laced into the aryan theory, its good to know that truth always reveals the deceitful lies. Europeans invaded every land on earth and tried to then change the history of those nations to fit in line with their biblical abrahamical beleif system of Noah and his three son lineage of Shem, Japeth and Ham. It was TERRYT who mocked me for saying that their was migration from India to Australia. Just like many many scholars who say Arya migration took place from India to central asia to europe.

This book describes the encounter between the common law legal system and the tribal peoples of North America and Australasia. It is a history of the role of anglophone law in managing relations between the British settlers and indigenous peoples. That history runs from the plantation of Ireland and settlement of the New World to the end of the 20th century. The book begins by looking at the nature of British imperialism and the position of non-Christian peoples at large in the 17th and 18th centuries. It then focuses on North America and Australasia from their early national periods in the 19th century to the modern era. The historical basis of relations is described through the key, enduring, but constantly shifting questions of sovereignty, status and, more latterly, self-determination. Throughout the history of engagement with common law legalism, questions surrounding the settler-states recognition - or otherwise - of the integrity of the tribe have recurred. These issues were addressed in many
In addition, Im generally skeptical when it comes to "basal grades" and roots inferred by very distinct outgroups. Except for the three species forming the root-parasitic grade (one in South America, two in Australasia), all loranths are aerial parasites. Loranths are a ubiquitous, highly competitive tropical-subtropical group extending into temperate climates with proper summers and little snow. They have a very extensive and relatively old pollen record across all pieces of Gondwana and Laurasia (Grímsson, Kapli et al. 2017, and references therein). The main lineages are sorted continent-wise, and the shift from root to aerial parasitism is supposed to have happened several times within the Santalales and its families. But only once in loranths? And how could only one root-parasitic lineage survive in South America, and two more in Australasia; all with but a single species ...

John Chapman introduced Robert Letcher of Environment Canada, who gave the inaugural Tony Roach Memorial Keynote Address in memory of our good friend and colleague who tragically passed away recently. Letcher presented his recent research and thoughts on "Emerging Contaminants and the Influence of Biotransformation and Degradation on Bioaccumulation, Fate and Effects in Model Wildlife and Fish".. Thereafter followed a smorgasbord of great presentations on the impact of extreme weather events, metals, passive sampling, environmental impacts of coal seam gas and statistics and computational techniques. The tea breaks and lunches, in a marquee outside on the grass, were highly commended by the delegates, who thoroughly enjoyed both the food and being out in the Queensland sun. The poster presentation, which wrapped up the day, was a great success with fantastic views of the sunset on the heritage-listed University of Queensland library building..

The magazine explores how human-driven climate change might influence the way we prevent, manage and clean up contamination. For a start, growing concern with climate change is driving the need for sustainable technologies with lower energy requirements. Issue 16 takes a look at one promising technology - zero valent nano-scale iron, generated from waste iron oxide, which can remediate of a broad range of recalcitrant metal working fluids. We also investigate the importance of strategies for preventing and remediating groundwater contamination that take into account the predicted impacts of climate change, such as sea level rise.. Other articles include a wrap-up of the background and current status of a low-energy, in situ method for treating contaminated groundwater using titanium dioxide and fibre-optic cables, and a look into the dirty world of illegal, clandestine drug laboratories - clanlabs - and what must be done to minimise the dangers they pose to nearby residents.. - Read ...
ICPs respond to patients experiencing an acute, life threatening emergency. They provide rapid and specialist clinical assessment by implementing a targeted management plan for patients with significant alteration or challenge to normal homeostatic function. Whilst this role is tasked with providing clinical oversight during the management of these cases all patient care is undertaken in collaborative context with other paramedic staff or health care professionals in attendance.. The ICP is required to make rapid, often complex and critical clinical judgements without direct supervision. Individuals are responsible for their own continuing professional development which may be supplemented by employer-provided training.. An ICP is usually engaged by a statutory ambulance service, private paramedic service or defence force and may operate in a variety of community, industrial, resource sector, defence or event/public gathering settings including disaster response.. This professional may be ...

The primary aim of the study is to determine whether providing EGDT, compared to standard care, reduces 90-day mortality in patients presenting to the ED of hospitals in Australasia with severe sepsis.. Each patient meeting all of the exclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria will be randomised in the ED to receive either EGDT for a total of 6 hours post-randomisation, or standard care.. Patients assigned to receive EGDT will be cared for by the dedicated ARISE study team. The patient will receive treatment as per the study protocol for 6 hours with central blood oxygen levels as the target end-point, then receive standard care.. Patients assigned to receive standard care will continue to be cared for by the hospital team in accordance with current best practice.. Patients in both groups will also receive any additional treatment needed, such as antibiotics or surgery.. This study will involve 1600 patients with severe sepsis admitted to the ED from multiple hospitals.. ...

PD-L1 immunohistochemistry (IHC) on tumor tissue is an important predictive biomarker for anti-PD-1/anti-PD-L1 cancer immunotherapy. PD-L1 IHC is a companion diagnostic for the utilization of anti-PD-1 directed therapies in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and bladder cancer, and can predict response to immune checkpoint blockade. However, tissue biopsy is not always available or may be insufficient to accurately test for PD-L1 expression and biopsy samples may not reflect the actual PD-L1 expression of the tumor due to tumor heterogeneity. Given this heterogeneity and the risks inherent with tissue biopsy, the ability to detect tumor PD-L1 status with a simple blood draw would be a major advance in this field. In addition to minimizing patient risk from a tissue biopsy, a circulating biomarker assay can avoid biopsy selection bias and provide a snapshot of the dynamic tumor landscape ...
Acute severe childhood asthma is an infrequent, but potentially life-threatening emergency presentation. There is a wide range of different approaches to this condition, with very little supporting evidence. To improve knowledge in this area, there must first be consensus on how to conduct clinical trials, so that valid comparisons can be made between future studies.. We have formed an international working group comprising paediatricians and emergency physicians from North America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, South America, Central America, Australasia and the United Kingdom.. We aim to develop a truly international consensus on the conduct and reporting of randomized controlled trials for children with acute severe exacerbations of asthma. This will involve the development of a shared understanding of what needs to be measured, and how it should be measured, leading to a core outcome set for research involving this group of children.. Planned projects include a systematic review of ...
Little stints are very rare vagrants to New Zealand, with three accepted records, all from Lake Ellesmere. Each bird was associated with a flock of red-necked stints, which enabled comparisons with that species to be made. This was essential for the records to be accepted, as the two species are very similar, and are regarded as one of the most difficult small sandpiper species pairs to separate.. Identification. The little stint is a tiny wader, and is very similar to the red-necked stint. The following pointers may assist identification (see references for authorities on shorebird identification). Little stints are fractionally smaller and slimmer than red-necked stints, with a slightly longer and finer bill. They are most easily separated in breeding plumage later in the southern summer. Little stints retain rufous in non-breeding plumage, which red-necked stint does not (at least in Australasia), and in comparison with red-necked are noticeably brighter in tone (but note that juvenile ...

Coronary heart disease (CHD) remains the largest cause of death in Scotland, as elsewhere in Europe, the United States, and Australasia. Scotland has one of the highest CHD mortality rates in western Europe, accounting for more than 8000 deaths in 2009. Furthermore, CHD is a major cause of premature mortality (aged ,75 years). The burden of disease is substantial, and the estimated annual cost to the National Health Service (NHS) in Scotland exceeds £3bn (€3.7bn; $5bn).1 CHD rates have fallen dramatically since the 1970s; age adjusted mortality rates for men dropped from 460 per 100 000 in 1979 to 136 per 100 000 in 2010, and rates for women dropped from 208 to 64 per 100 000.2 Studies in the United Kingdom, Europe, United States, and New Zealand have suggested that 45-75% of the substantial falls in deaths from CHD can be attributed to population-wide decreases in major risk factors such as smoking, blood pressure, and cholesterol.3 4 5 6 7 The remaining 25-55% can apparently be explained by ...

Antenatal screening for fetal anomalies has provided women and their partners with information to make reproductive choices based on the risk of serious chromosomal or structural defects since the 1990s. Alternative tests include first-trimester screening (combined ultrasound and maternal serum markers), second-trimester maternal serum markers and noninvasive cell-free DNA testing. The recent recommendations by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and the Human Genetics Society of Australasia against second-trimester triple testing are based on unsound performance criteria, raise several contestable issues around access and equity and challenge the principles of governments providing affordable options.. ...

This study was designed to create a snapshot of Australian haematology reference intervals (RIs) in use, in particular red cell parameters. We present an analysis of survey results conducted across Australian laboratories between Novem¬ ber 2012 and January 2013. All Australian laboratories enrolled in the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia Quality Assurance Program (RCPA QAP) were invited to participate in the December 2012 Survey Monkey survey, with a response from 85 laboratories (17%) received. The scope included laboratory demographics (location, size/ throughput, and network), RIs in use for the full blood count and selected derived parameters, their frequency of revi¬ sion, source and statistical approach for derivation. Further questions related to uncertainty of measurement, preg¬ nancy values, paediatric/adult cut-off, haematology profiles reported and the use of extended parameters. There is more consistency with some upper and lower limits than others, and wide ranges for
The Colon CFR centers all use standardized core protocols and instruments for personal and family history data, biospecimens collection, laboratory analysis, and data transmission and summaries. These materals were developed by the relevant working groups; questionnaires and protocols are described in detail at http://epi.grants.cancer.gov/CFR/index.html.. Core Questionnaire. Family history and personal exposures (except diet; see below) have been consistently collected at all sites to facilitate joint analyses. Each selected proband, population-based and spouse controls, completed the family history questionnaire either in person (USC), by telephone (FHCRC, USC, Australasia), or by mail (UHI, CCO, Mayo Clinic). The questionnaire acquired information on the number, sex, and birthdates of first-degree relatives (parents, siblings, and children), their cancer history, vital status, and, if deceased, date of death. All cancers, except for nonmelanoma skin cancers, were recorded with dates of ...
7,246 SHARP patients (2,498 on dialysis at baseline) from Europe, North America, and Australasia contributed 28,261 years of data. CKD patients without diabetes or vascular disease incurred annual hospital care costs ranging from £403 (95% confidence interval: 345-462) in CKD stages 1-3B to £525 (449-602) in CKD stage 5 (not on dialysis). Patients in receipt of maintenance dialysis incurred annual hospital costs of £18,986 (18,620-19,352) in the year of initiation and £23,326 (23,231-23,421) annually thereafter. Patients with a functioning kidney transplant incurred £24,602 (24,027-25,178) in hospital care costs in the year of transplantation and £1,148 (978-1,318) annually thereafter. Non-fatal major vascular events increased annual costs in the year of the event by £6,133 (5,608-6,658) for patients on dialysis and by £4,350 (3,819-4,880) for patients not on dialysis, and were associated with increased costs, though to a lesser extent, in subsequent years ...
The Birds of Paradise are members of the family Paradisaeidae of the order Passeriformes (Perching Birds). The Birds of Paradise are highly admired for their extremely beautiful and extraordinarily developed plumage (plumage is the term used for the layer of feathers covering a birds body) unsurpassed by any other family of birds. This awesome pulchritude is shown by the male birds of paradise to attract the female birds of paradise. The male birds exhibit vivid colors and bizarre courtship dances. The sexual dimorphism shown by the Birds of Paradise is one of the best known examples of Charles Darwins theory of sexual selection. These birds are found in Australasia, and according to some ornithologists there are only 39 species of the Birds of Paradise. The natural habitat of most of these birds is in the remote mountainous rain forests of New Guinea4.. Continue reading → ...
1 With some reluctance I make use of the terms north and south to refer to, on the one hand, the rich, fully capitalized countries of Europe, North America and Australasia, and on the other, to those countries that receive development aid from the first group. While not perfect, the terms are less loaded than others in use, such as developing, Third World and so on. For further discussion, see Porter, 2000; Miles, 1996. 2 For example, David Mosse, 1994, discusses the subtle ways in which PRA methods can reinforce existing social inequalities, as well as the solutions preferred by the powerful and the developers. Other critiques pointing to the limitations of such participatory methods include Guijt and Shah, 1998; Porter, Smyth and Sweetman, 1999; Jackson and Pearson, 1998, Sen and Grown, 1987. 3 This study is based on material collected during the course of several university linkage projects carried out since 1990. During this period, I have been able to record the growth and ...

Bringing together a wide range of original empirical research from locations and interconnected geographical contexts from Europe, Australasia, Asia, Africa, Central and Latin America, this book sets out a new agenda for mobility - one which emphasizes the enduring connectedness between, and embeddedness within, places during the experience of mobility. These issues are examined through the themes of home and family, neighbourhoods and city spaces and allow the reader to engage with migrants diverse practices which are specifically local, yet spacially global. This book breaks new ground by arguing for a spatial understanding of translocality that situates the migrant experience within/across particular locales without confining it to the territorial boundedness of the nation state. It will be of interest to academics and students of social and cultural geography, regional and migration studies ...

The This Is Us Tour was the eighth concert tour by American boy band, the Backstreet Boys. The tour promotes their seventh studio album, This Is Us. The tour reached Europe, Asia, Australasia and the Americas. The tour was the second concert tour the band had performed as a quartet. With the announcement of their seventh studio album, the band reported they will spend the latter half of 2009 and all of 2010 on the road. The trek began in Europe in October 2009 and ended in South America in March 2011. Band member, Howie Dorough stated the tour was not a comeback tour, after the sluggish sales of their last album. He stated the band has matured during their nearly 20 years in the music industry. This maturity would be reflected in their album and upcoming tour. He was later interviewed by Jam!, where he stated the band were in tour rehearsals and this would be the first tour in which the group had background dancers since 2001.

It is 5 years since the development and first validation of the COPD Assessment Test (CAT) [1], so the review of papers concerning the CAT by Gupta et al. [2] in this issue of the European Respiratory Journal is very timely. The authors identified over 40 studies using a systematic approach to minimise biases, although they acknowledge that they introduced one bias by selecting papers published only in English, French and Spanish, so eight papers were excluded. That may not be too problematic, as the included papers report data on over 25 000 patients from 35 countries across five continents (none from Australasia or Antarctica).. One of the strengths of a systematic review is that it can allow comparison of variability in outcomes across different studies. To this end, the data extracted for this review provide an indication of the reliability of the CAT in different settings, and it is generally very good. For example, the internal consistency measured using Cronbachs alpha was in the range ...

The use of rigid engineered timber panels, such as cross-laminated-timber, in construction is increasing around the world, particularly in Europe and Australasia. Typically the panels rely on nailed or screwed steel plates for hold-downs and shear keys. However, this can mean the level of ductility is difficult to quantify. Furthermore ductile wall behaviour will inevitably be associated with permanent damage to the connections. There have been calls from designers for a solution in which the level of ductility can be predicted and achieved with confidence. The authors propose a novel, yet simple, slipfriction device that limits activated forces on a structure during an earthquake by allowing it to slightly rock. An experimental LVL wall was fitted with these devices acting as hold-downs. The shear key consisted of steel rods bearing against upright steel plates along the base of the wall. Under cyclic displacement tests, the wall demonstrated excellent elasto-plastic behaviour. The predicted ...

I am often asked by my patients why their pain feels so much worse when they are stressed out or feeling in the dumps. Today, I found a review of the best reason Ive ever heard, and the new explaination Ill give to my patients. Believe me, in the field of healthcare there is something new to learn every day. As a take home point from this article, Id say that it is to do whatever you can to increase your positive outlook on the world, especially if you have a new injury or suffer from chronic pain. Your good health depends on it. Heres the entire review from the fantastic group at the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute Australasia (noigroup.com): "The article (Edwards RR et al 2008 Association of catastrophising with interleukin-6 responses to acute pain. Pain 140: 135-144 ) really struck home. In essence, these authors demonstrated a link between catastrophisation and elevated levels of the pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-6. Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is one of a number of pro-inflammatory ...

Patterns of genetic structure are essential for a comprehensive understanding of the evolution and biogeography of a species. Here, we investigated the genetic patterns of one of the most widespread and abundant mangrove species in the Indo-West Pacific, Sonneratia alba J. Sm., in order to gain insights into the ecological and evolutionary drivers of genetic structure in mangroves. We employed 11 nuclear microsatellite loci and two chloroplast regions to genotyped 25 S. alba populations. Our objectives were to (1) assess the level of genetic diversity and its geographic distribution; and (2) determine the genetic structure of the populations. Our results revealed significant genetic differentiation among populations. We detected a major genetic break between Indo-Malesia and Australasia, and further population subdivision within each oceanic region in these two major clusters. The phylogeographic patterns indicated a strong influence of vicariance, oceanic barriers and geographic distance on genetic

From the FULL TEXT Article:. INTRODUCTION A sufficient knowledge or mastery of human anatomy is required by those working in the health professions. The level of knowledge differs among the different professions, with some requiring an in-depth knowledge of specific parts of the body rather than general anatomical knowledge. For example, dental students require emphasis on the oral cavity and podiatrists on the feet. For chiropractors, there is little research on the depth and breadth of research required for safe and effective practice. In Australia this situation is not unique to chiropractic; studies at medical schools have found that there is no consensus on exactly what students need to know. [1] Excerpts from accreditation requirements of several chiropractic bodies are shown in the Appendix (available online as supplemental material at www.journalchiroed.com).. The Council on Chiropractic Education Australasia [2 has broad accreditation standards for teaching basic sciences, including ...
The demand for fish in Asia and the Pacific region is estimated to increase by 30 percent by 2030 as a result of the anticipated population growth and the improved living standards of the people of the region. In order to meet such an increased demand for fish, aquaculture production will need to increase by 50-60 percent from the present level by 2030 with the capture fish production remaining static.. Intensification of aquaculture is a major factor that has contributed to the outstanding growth (nearly 10 percent annually) of the aquaculture industry in Asia-Pacific in the past three decades.. Such growth has greatly contributed to food security and the nutrition of the people, rural livelihoods and economic growth in the region. The Asia-Pacific region consistently has contributed over 90 percent to the world aquaculture production for decades. In Asia, aquaculture supplies over 60 percent of food fish, comprising over 20 percent of the total protein intake of the Asian population.. The ...

Abstract. Bats of the genus Pteropus have been identified as the reservoir hosts for the henipaviruses Hendra virus (HeV) and Nipah virus (NiV). The aim of these studies was to assess likely mechanisms for henipaviruses transmission from bats. In a series of experiments, Pteropus bats from Malaysia and Australia were inoculated with NiV and HeV, respectively, by natural routes of infection. Despite an intensive sampling strategy, no NiV was recovered from the Malaysian bats and HeV was reisolated from only one Australian bat; no disease was seen. These experiments suggest that opportunities for henipavirus transmission may be limited; therefore, the probability of a spillover event is low. For spillover to occur, a range of conditions and events must coincide. An alternate assessment framework is required if we are to fully understand how this reservoir host maintains and transmits not only these but all viruses with which it has been associated.
Up to 50% of patients with a first episode of venous thromboembolism (VTE) have no identifiable cause (i.e. are unprovoked VTEs). The risk of recurrent VTE in this large group of patients with unprovoked VTE after 3-6 months of anticoagulant therapy is 5-10.8% in the year following discontinuation of oral anticoagulant therapy. One in six to one in twenty recurrences of a new VTE are fatal. Given the intermediate risks of recurrence in unselected unprovoked VTE patients, clinicians do not have clear guidance on whether to continue or discontinue anticoagulants in patients with unprovoked VTE. Recently attention has turned to the concept of risk stratification to identify subgroups of patients with unprovoked VTE who could safely discontinue oral anticoagulation therapy (OAT).. In the REVERSE I study, a clinical decision rule derivation study conducted from 2001 to 2006, we developed and internally validated the clinical decision rule Men continue and HER DOO2 that identifies patients with a ...

When animals solve complex problems, do they do it in the same way people do? Do they understand the problem, or do they just repeat behaviour thats worked in the past? What would evidence for that look like? Graham will explore recent experiments on this question, investigating causal understanding in the Aesops Fable problem, metatool use and behavioural innovation, and flexible tool manufacture, all by New Caledonian crows. The conclusion may be that we underestimate animal intelligence, but that perhaps we overestimate human intelligence at the same time.. Doug Elliffe has had a long-standing research interest in animal behaviour and in particular in the similarities and differences between animal and human behaviour. He is a recent Head of Psychology at Auckland, directs the Experimental Analysis of Behaviour Research Group, and is currently Deputy Dean of Science. ...
