Transcription of Alu DNA elements in blood cells of sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD). (1/25)

Alu DNA elements were long considered to be of no biological significance and thus have been only poorly defined. However, in the past Alu DNA elements with well-defined nucleotide sequences have been suspected to contribute to disease, but the role of Alu DNA element transcripts has rarely been investigated. For the first time, we determined in a real-time approach Alu DNA element transcription in buffy coat cells isolated from the blood of humans suffering from sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD) and other neurodegenerative disorders. The reverse transcribed Alu transcripts were amplified and their cDNA sequences were aligned to genomic regions best fitted to database genomic Alu DNA element sequences deposited in the UCSC and NCBI data bases. Our cloned Alu RNA/cDNA sequences were widely distributed in the human genome and preferably belonged to the "young" Alu Y family. We also observed that some RNA/cDNA clones could be aligned to several chromosomes because of the same degree of identity and score to resident genomic Alu DNA elements. These elements, called paralogues, have purportedly been recently generated by retrotransposition. Along with cases of sCJD we also included cases of dementia and Alzheimer disease (AD). Each group revealed a divergent pattern of transcribed Alu elements. Chromosome 2 was the most preferred site in sCJD cases, besides chromosome 17; in AD cases chromosome 11 was overrepresented whereas chromosomes 2, 3 and 17 were preferred active Alu loci in controls. Chromosomes 2, 12 and 17 gave rise to Alu transcripts in dementia cases. The detection of putative Alu paralogues widely differed depending on the disease. A detailed data search revealed that some cloned Alu transcripts originated from RNA polymerase III transcription since the genomic sites of their Alu elements were found between genes. Other Alu DNA elements could be located close to or within coding regions of genes. In general, our observations suggest that identification and genomic localization of active Alu DNA elements could be further developed as a surrogate marker for differential gene expression in disease. A sufficient number of cases are necessary for statistical significance before Alu DNA elements can be considered useful to differentiate neurodegenerative diseases from controls.  (+info)

Currently some pathogen-reduced platelet products (PR-PCs) have passed phase III studies, are in progress or can be expected in the near future. At present some transfusion centers throughout Europe have implemented PR-PCs, but as yet PR-PCs are not formally accepted as a standard product that should be applied nation-wide. Because many uncertainties currently exist on the optimal platelet product, it is in the interest of patients, health care providers and the transfusion provider (Sanquin) to decide on evidence.. With all the current safety measures remaining in place, pathogen reduction provides a safety benefit by reducing the number of transfusions of platelet concentrates contaminated with bacteria, but which were missed by the screening method. In the Dutch situation, morbidity is estimated to be 1:14,000 platelet concentrates [Te Boekhorst, Transfusion 2005]. In this publication, two cases of transmission of B. cereus by a platelet transfusion are reported, where both patients ...

Background We recently developed and characterized a standardized and clinical grade human Platelet Lysate (hPL) that constitutes an advantageous substitute for fetal bovine serum (FBS) for human mesenchymal stem cell (hMSC) expansion required in cell therapy procedures, avoiding xenogenic risks (virological and immunological) and ethical issues. Because of the progressive use of pathogen-reduced (PR) labile blood components, and the requirement of ensuring the viral safety of raw materials for cell therapy products, we evaluated the impact of the novel procedure known as THERAFLEX UV-Platelets for pathogen reduction on hPL quality (growth factors content) and efficacy (as a medium supplement for hMSC expansion). This technology is based on short-wave ultraviolet light (UV-C) that induces non-reversible damages in DNA and RNA of pathogens while preserving protein structures and functions, and has the main advantage of not needing the addition of any photosensitizing additives (that might secondarily
Why do we perform research activities in a blood bank? Our primary mission is to deliver efficient and safe blood products to our patients. This simple mission has not changed for decades but its interpretation is highly dependent upon the medical and scientific context and the technologies available. Transfusion medicine has been completely reshaped, from the use of glass bottles to store blood products, and limited screening technologies till the seventies, followed by the introduction in the eighties of plastic bags that guarantee complete sterility from the donor to the patient, the generalisation of serologic screening and the introduction of nucleic acid testing , that allowed to reduce the risk of pathogen transmission through the transfusion chain to unprecedently low levels, and by the use of additive solutions to improve the storage of red blood cells and platelets. Recently, we have introduced universal pathogen reduction technologies for platelets, and will soon introduce it for ...

Platelets are either isolated from collected units of whole blood and pooled to make a therapeutic dose, or collected by platelet apheresis: blood is taken from the donor, passed through a device which removes the platelets, and the remainder is returned to the donor in a closed loop. The industry standard is for platelets to be tested for bacteria before transfusion to avoid septic reactions, which can be fatal. Recently the AABB Industry Standards for Blood Banks and Transfusion Services (5.1.5.1) has allowed for use of pathogen reduction technology as an alternative to bacterial screenings in platelets.[61]. Pooled whole-blood platelets, sometimes called random platelets, are separated by one of two methods.[62] In the US, a unit of whole blood is placed into a large centrifuge in what is referred to as a soft spin. At these settings, the platelets remain suspended in the plasma. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is removed from the red cells, then centrifuged at a faster setting to harvest ...

Blood centers are faced with many challenges including maximizing production yield from the blood product donations they receive as well as ensuring the highest possible level of safety for transfusion patients, including protection from transfusion transmitted diseases. This must be accomplished in a fiscally responsible manner which minimizes operating expenses including consumables, equipment, waste, and personnel costs, among others.. Several methods are available to produce platelet concentrates for transfusion. One of the most common is the buffy coat method in which a single therapeutic platelet unit (,= 2.0 x10(11) platelets per unit or per local regulations) is prepared by pooling the buffy coat layer from up to six whole blood donations. A procedure for producing double dose whole blood derived platelets has only recently been developed.. Presented here is a novel method for preparing double dose whole blood derived platelet concentrates from pools of 7 buffy coats and subsequently ...

Human fibroblasts, and specifically embryonic or neonatal fibroblasts, have represented the conventional cell substrate for recovery of HCMV from clinical samples since the beginning of medical virology. Due to the increasing need for recovery of HCMV from the blood of immunocompromised patients, we investigated whether use of HCMV-free HUVEC could increase the recovery rate of HCMV from blood (buffy coat) samples in comparison to HELF. Clinical samples other than blood were inoculated in parallel onto the two cell substrates as controls. Surprisingly, while the isolation rate from blood samples did not increase on HUVEC compared to HELF, no or very little virus could be recovered on primary isolation on HUVEC from clinical samples other than blood, even when virus was present in exceedingly large amounts. Thus, HELF were confirmed as the cell substrate of choice for isolation of HCMV from the broadest series of clinical samples, whereas HCMV recovery on HUVEC was substantially restricted to ...

BACKGROUND A designer typically has to make several compromises in the selection of materials. The preferred material may not be useable due to a lack of essential surface properties for the application. In the case of products made of plastics, the balancing of bulk to surface property requirements has always been the Achilles heel of optimum design. For example, the use of polypropylene, a low cost resin, may be the preferred material for a specific packaging application. Preferred because of its processability, weight, strength and cost, but unusable by itself because of its gas permeation properties.. The methods available to the processor for modifying surface properties have been limited to flame or corona treatment or wet chemical techniques. Flame and corona treatments, though useful in oxidizing the surfaces of plastics, have limited utility in many applications and the transitory nature of these modifications prevent their widespread use in many situations. Unlike plasma discharges ...
Colon cancer is a major cause of cancer related death in the United States; most forms arise in the form of benign polyps in the colon. Screening is advised for adults who are at average risk of developing, but many dont follow this advice due to the discomfort of traditional optical colonoscopies. Virtual forms of a colonoscopy (i.e. CT scans) have been proposed to have a minimally invasive method of screening for colon cancer; colon models have a complicated geometric and topological structure, making them difficult and time consuming to evaluate. A computer-aided detection (CAD) method of screening is desirable, because it would lessen the interpretation effort required by current virtual methods. Automatic detection is possible, but its challenging due to the various shapes and sizes of polyps. Polyps have internal tissue thats more dense than healthy tissue; these high density areas lie beneath the colon wall and cant be detected during optical colonoscopies or surface rendered virtual ...
A sudden shortage of physician resources due to overwhelming patient needs can affect the quality of care in the emergency department (ED). Developing effective response strategies remains a challenging research area. We created a novel system using information and communication technology (ICT) to respond to a sudden shortage, and tested the system to determine whether it would compensate for a shortage. Patients (n = 4890) transferred to a level I trauma center in Japan during 2012-2015 were studied. We assessed whether the system secured the necessary physicians without using other means such as phone or pager, and calculated fulfillment rate by the system as a primary outcome variable. We tested for the difference in probability of multiple casualties among total casualties transferred to the ED as an indicator of ability to respond to excessive patient needs, in a secondary analysis before and after system introduction. The system was activated 24 times (stand-by request [n = 12], attendance

Contemporary healthcare facilities are filled with technology systems increasingly sophisticated and complex. Properly planned and managed, these systems offer enormous benefit to patients, clinicians and support staff. Unfortunately, these systems are often disparate and unable to share data between systems, resulting in inefficiencies, lost opportunities and cost over-runs. As patient satisfaction, clinician need, compliance issues and regulatory demands are driving the unique application of technology to Healthcare, institutions increasingly prefer a comprehensive approach, unifying infrastructure, middleware and disparate systems into a common topology. Strategically-planned Healthcare Technology Systems improve patient outcomes and reduce costs by integrating clinical devices to the Electronic Health Record (EHR), managing assets, reducing errors, managing alerts, improving communications, tracking patient / clinician location, improving clinician efficiency, speeding bed-ready systems, and ...

Noble feed gases such as Argon are used since they tend to initiate cleavage without grafting to the surface. Treatment times are typically short so as to reduce further unwanted chemistry.. Excessive treatment results in attack of the base polymer which ultimately ashes the entire polymeric part resulting in its destruction. A typical cleaning procedure for polyethylene would be to treat with Argon at a pressure of 0.01 to 0.4 Torr, with a power density of 0.5 W/cm2 at 13.56 MHz rf on parallel-plate electrodes. Once contaminants are removed, a more stable polymer surface is exposed to the plasma environment so as to facilitate further reaction such as etching, grafting or direct application of the desired surface coating. More aggressive processing can be achieved by using reactive gases or by use of electrical biasing to increase the energetics of the bombarding ions. However, etching into the base polymer begins to occur, which leads us logically to the next topic.. ETCHING. To obtain ...

Maturation (MP) or polishing ponds are widely used throughout the world as a final or tertiary wastewater treatment process for effluent quality improvement from secondary biological treatment systems, including FPs. MPs can be expected to reduce total suspended solids (TSS), ammonia, nitrate and phosphorus levels in effluent, but the primary function of MPs in most parts of the world is the removal of pathogenic organisms. A number of mechanisms in MPs are responsible for pathogen reduction, including settlement, natural die off (a function of time and temperature), elevated pH, UV radiation and predation. The design, size and number (usually in series) of MPs are typically based on the desired bacteriological quality of the final effluent. MPs are typically designed at the same depth as facultative ponds (2 to 5 feet (0.7 to 1.5 m)). Retention times in MPs are typically designed at 10 to 14 days for pathogen reduction; however, shorter retention times are required for TSS removal (four to five ...
0027] In an embodiment of the invention, the first and second spray nozzles 34a, 34b are triggered intermittently by an optical or other sensor or output (not shown) that provides a signal indicating the position of the blade 33. In another embodiment, an encoder signal from the slicer is used to establish position of the blade, and thus is used to set the window and timing of the shot. Thus, for example, when the blade 33 is in a first position A so as to expose the face 36 of the log 1, the first spray nozzle 34a is activated for a predetermined burst period. As each slice falls away from the log 1 (e.g., when the blade 33 is in a second position B obscuring the face 36 of the log 1, the second spray nozzle 34b is activated for a second predetermined burst period. When the second burst is applied, the removed slice may be either on the stack in progress or in transit to the stack. Except for the first and last slices in the stack, when each slice contacts the stack in progress, the ...

Next, the link between histone tail modifications and DNA methylation was examined. Publically available PBMC ChIP-Seq data from the ENCODE project were used to identify regions enriched for four distinct histone H3 modifications. Since the methylome of non-pregnant ccf DNA closely resembled that of buffy coat (PBMC), the level of CpG methylation in non-pregnant ccf DNA was then examined within these regions (Figure 1b). In regions enriched for H3K4me3, 89.9% of cytosines showed less than 20% methylation while only 5.2% of unenriched sites were similarly unmethylated. Conversely, 84.9% of CpG sites were methylated (,75%) in H3K9me3 enriched regions compared to 76.3% in unenriched regions. Distinct differences were also observed when comparing H3K4me1 and H3K27me3 enriched regions to corresponding unenriched CpG sites. Taken together, these data suggest a link between particular histone marks and CpG methylation in buffy coat. Comparison of the methylomes of buffy coat and non-pregnant ccf DNA ...

Cytochrome P450 monooxygenases (P450s) catalyze oxidation of various substrates using oxygen and NAD(P)H. Plant P450s are involved in the biosynthesis of primary and secondary metabolites performing diverse biological functions. The recent availability of the soybean genome sequence allows us to identify and analyze soybean putative P450s at a genome scale. Co-expression analysis using an available soybean microarray and Illumina sequencing data provides clues for functional annotation of these enzymes. This approach is based on the assumption that genes that have similar expression patterns across a set of conditions may have a functional relationship. We have identified a total number of 332 full-length P450 genes and 378 pseudogenes from the soybean genome. From the full-length sequences, 195 genes belong to A-type, which could be further divided into 20 families. The remaining 137 genes belong to non-A type P450s and are classified into 28 families. A total of 178 probe sets were found to correspond
Substitution of a single Ga-atom or single Ge-atom (GaAl.sub.12 and GeAl.sub.12 respectively) into the center of an aluminum Keggin polycation (Al.sub.13) produces an optimal water-treatment product for neutralization and coagulation of anionic contaminants in water. GaAl.sub.12 consistently shows .about.1 order of magnitude increase in pathogen reduction, compared to Al.sub.13. At a concentration of 2 ppm, GaAl.sub.12 performs equivalently to 40 ppm alum, removing .about.90% of the dissolved organic material.

The goal of the FDAs guidelines is to help people reduce how much sodium they consume daily. Currently, American adults consume an average of 3,400 mg of sodium per day - almost 50 percent more than is recommended by the FDA and the American Heart Association. Most of that- as much as 65 percent - comes from food purchased in grocery and convenient stores, and 25 percent comes from eating out at restaurants, according to the AHA. The FDA would like to see adults reduce that amount to no more than 2,300 mg of sodium per day, or roughly one teaspoon of salt.. Most children and adolescents also take in more sodium than is recommended. Current data shows that children ages 6 to 10 consume approximately 2,900 mg per day, while teens consume up to 3,700 mg per day. The FDAs guidelines are generously providing companies with specific goals for defining and measuring progress. The companies also have time to learn and utilize new science on sodium reduction technologies. Within two years, the FDA ...

Within the last six-eight years many papers have reported an association between increased levels of particulate (aerodynamic size less than 10 microns in diameter) air pollution and increased daily death rates and illness in major cities in the US, Europe, and South America. There is a need to better characterize the emission rates and chemical composition of particles emitted from vehicles equipped with the latest emission reduction technology. Particle-mass emission rates were measured for four 1995 Ford vehicles driven over three different driving cycles: the Urban Dynamometer Driving Schedule (UDDS), the Highway Fuel Economy Test (HFET), and the USO6 driving cycle. The average particle-mass emission rates were less than 10 mg/mi for any of the driving cycles. The particle-mass emission rate was least for the HFET and about equal for the UDDS and the USO6 cycles. The elemental composition of the particles, determined by X-ray fluorescence, suggests that 10-30% of the particle-mass is ...

BACKGROUND: UK primary care is highly computerized; initially led by enthusiastic general practitioners who developed their own systems. This preceded the development of a National Health Service information strategy and an ambitious National Programme for IT. MODEL: A 4-element model is proposed to explain the development of information technology: (1) individual clinician choice; (2) integration into the clinical task - usually an office visit; (3) technological developments; and (4) organizational factors. CONCLUSION: All 4 elements of this model have been tilted in favor of the utilization of information technology; lessons from the United Kingdom may help other health systems looking to implement information technology systems in primary care. © 2008 Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
