This practice note reports on the work of the Namaste Community Health Partnership, an academic-community partnership established to address health disparities in a metro-area Bhutanese–Nepali refugee community in the western United States. Partners worked together to develop, implement, and evaluate a culturally-tailored health promotion program where Bhutanese–Nepali individuals led weekly walking groups and shared health promotion information and behavior change tools with community participants. The program was implemented with approximately 70 community members across two metro-area neighborhoods and two adult day care centers serving elders. Evaluation strategies included documenting walk attendance, tracking engagement with health promotion goals, and focus group discussions with program participants. Once enrolled, most participants consistently attended walks and …

The unique airway difficulties posed by the child's anatomy limited oxygenation and ventilation by the use of conventional face mask, oropharyngeal airway and supraglottic airway devices.[Extracted from the article]Copyright of Pediatric Anesthesia is the …

BackgroundDespite improvements in treatment modalities, 5-year survival of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is static. There is a shift in focus from tumor cell biology to tumor host interactions, which serve as novel, relatively unexplored avenues for identification of prognostic/predictive biomarkers. The Brandwein-Gensler Histological Risk Score (BG-score) is a scoring system based on parameters assessing tumor host interactions. Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) are the major immune cells in the OSCC microenvironment.ObjectiveTo assess the impact of BG-score and TIL subsets on patient outcomes in OSCC.MethodsBG-score was calculated for 178 OSCC excisions and cases were classified into low-, intermediate-, and high-risk groups. Immunohistochemistry for TIL subsets was performed in 50 cases. Results were correlated with disease-free survival and overall survival.ResultsTwenty-five low-risk …

The Glitter Belt architecture is planning flight tests with swarms of solar-powered, ultralight autonomous sunlight-reflecting fixed wing UAVs. These are long-endurance, summer-following meteorology platforms, able to fly between 20km and 36km altitude, initially over the Indian and Pacific oceans. An architecture summary is followed by flight test vehicle and payload parameters, as well as ground station considerations for Eastern Hemisphere operations. The new capabilities are mapped against present capabilities and needs for measurements. Sensor suites on present weather satellites, data bandwidth and possibility of using the reflector swarms as antenna networks are next considered.

Abstract Introduction: Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is a reliable and reproducible diagnostic technique for thyroid lesions. Recently, it has been suggested that evaluation of nuclear features may enhance the diagnostic utility of FNAC. However, the evaluation of nuclear morphometry is not well established in thyroid cytology. Aim: To evaluate the role of nuclear morphometry in cytological evaluation of thyroid lesions. Materials and Methods: This was a cross-sectional study conducted over a period from March 2019-February 2020 at Hamdard Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, New Delhi. Morphometry was done on 40 cases of thyroid aspirates which had histopathological concordance. Computerised nuclear morphometry was done by using photographs captured under Motic photomicrography system. Six parameters were measured-nuclear area, nuclear perimeter, minimum nuclear diameter …

In humankind’s endeavor to explore beyond our planet and travel further into space, we are now at the threshold of an era in which it is possible to move to and from low Earth orbit (LEO) with increasing ease and reduced cost. Through the International Space Station (ISS) US National Laboratory, investigators from industry, academia, and government can easily access the unique LEO environment on the ISS to conduct research and development (R&D) activities in ways not possible on Earth. A key advantage of the LEO environment for life sciences research is the ability to conduct experiments in sustained microgravity conditions. The ability to conduct long-term research in microgravity enables opportunities for novel, fundamental studies in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, including research on stem cell proliferation and differentiation, biofabrication, and disease modeling using microphysiological systems (MPS) that build on prior research using simulated microgravity conditions (Grimm, D., et al. 2018). Over the last decade, space-based research has demonstrated that microgravity informs our knowledge of fundamental biology and accelerates advancements in health care and medical technologies (International Space Station 2019). The benefits provided by conducting biomedical research in LEO may lead to breakthroughs not achievable on Earth. We are now at a transition point, in which nations are changing their approach to space-based R&D. The focus is shifting from government-funded fundamental science toward the expansion of privately funded R&D with terrestrial application and economic value that will drive a …

SARS-Cov-2, responsible for COVID-19, is caused by RNA based corona virus. Recently 2 nd wave of COVID-19 has devastated the pandemic worldwide. Inhibitors of glycolysis pathways have been evaluated to curtail the SARS-CoV-2 infectivity and spread in the host cells, but still at infancy stage. Due to key role in glycolysis, in the present study hexokinase has been regarded as a suitable target for drug design. In-silico docking and pharmacological study was designed to evaluate the effect of potent bioactive molecule 1-8 cineole present in essential oils of eucalyptus plant leaves against hexokinase enzyme. Till date there is no work is undertaken on in-silico analysis of this compound against glycolytic enzymes. Patch-dock analysis was used for docking. Ligand Protein 2D and 3D Interactions were also studied. Drug likes and toxicity profile was also evaluated. Cancer cell line toxicity profile was also studied. The calculated parameters such as docking score indicated effective binding of 1-8 cineole to hexokinase-protein. Interactions results indicated that, hexokinase enzyme and 1-8 cineole complexes forms hydrogen and hydrophobic interactions. 1-8 cineole also depicted sufficient level of cancer cell line toxicity. Drug likeliness profiles by assaying absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicity (ADMET) studies provided guidelines and mechanistic scope for identification of 1-8 cineole as potent anti-COVID 19 drug. Therefore, essential oil from eucalyptus may represent potential herbal treatment to act as COVID-19.
