While potentially strong enough for load-bearing skeletal reconstruction applications, the corrosion (biodegradation) rate of biocompatible Mg-Zn-Ca-based alloys still presents. The present work reports on the use of heat treatment (strengthening and resorption delaying) and micro arc oxidation (MAO) coating (corrosion delaying) processes which were developed to induce desirable corrosion rates which are essential to maintaining the mechanical integrity of Mg-Zn-Ca-based alloys during the bon…

A series of germanium (Ge)-containing glasses were synthesized based on a starting glass composition of SiO-ZnO-CaO-SrO-PO. Additions of GeO (6 and 12 mol%) were incorporated at the expense of SiO which retained the amorphous character, and each glass was processed to present similar particle size and surface area. Glass characterization using x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and magic angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance (MAS-NMR) determined that the addition of GeO increased the …

Alemtuzumab (Ale) is a recombinant monoclonal antibody which binds to CD52 causing profound lymphodepletion, thus allowing its use in renal transplantation induction therapy. However, patients may be at increased risk for opportunistic infections, such as Cytomegalovirus (CMV). We analyzed CMV infection in renal allograft recipients administered low-dose valganciclovir (VGCV) prophylaxis with alemtuzumab induction and steroid minimization.In this retrospective analysis, 678 kidney transplant …

Intrinsic exercise capacity is predictive of both lifespan and healthspan but whether adaptive exercise capacity influences the benefits achieved from aerobic training implemented later in life is not known.To determine if exercise late in life provides any functional improvements or underlying beneficial biochemical adaptations in rats bred to have a high response to training (HRT rats) or little to no response to training (LRT rats).Adult (11 months) and old (22 months) female LRT and HRT r…

This study reviewed literature published in the last 10 years to investigate the reasons for revision failure. A total of 9952 revisions were identified and it was determined that the number one cause of failure was aseptic loosening (23.19%), followed by instability (22.43%) and infection (22.13%). Further analysis of applicable revisions investigated BMI and age at the failure rates. The rate of rerevision in obese patients was markedly higher (p < 0.01) compared to non-obese patients and i…

Since the world is made of atoms, it is not surprising that most of the important questions in science and technology can be put under the category of understanding a few-atom or a many-atom quantum system. This includes both the "big questions" such as the origin of life, and the more practical questions such as the everyday chemistry, biology, and medicine. While this atomic picture of the world is sound and natural, its implementation at the quantum level is so difficult that it has barely…

For tissue engineering applications, a porous scaffold with an interconnected network is essential to facilitate the cell attachment and proliferation in a three dimensional (3D) structure. This study aimed to fabricate the scaffolds by an extrusion-based 3D printer using a blend of polycaprolactone (PCL), and graphene oxide (GO) as a favorable platform for bone tissue engineering. The mechanical properties, morphology, biocompatibility, and biological activities such as cell proliferation an…

Improving biodegradation of pharmaceuticals during wastewater treatment is critical to control the release of emerging micropollutants to natural waters. In this study, biodegradation of six model pharmaceuticals was investigated at different initial concentrations in two discrete activated sludge systems, and moreover, the correlation was explored between the biodegradation rate and key molecular properties of the contaminants. First, the biodegradation rates of the pharmaceuticals were meas…

The Solitaire stent retriever registry showed improved reperfusion, faster procedure times, and better outcome in acute stroke patients with large vessel occlusion treated with a balloon guide catheter (BGC) and Solitaire stent retriever compared with a conventional guide catheter. The goal of this study was to evaluate whether use of a BGC with the Trevo stent retriever improves outcomes compared with a conventional guide catheter.The TRACK registry recruited 23 sites to submit demographic, …

Guidelines recommend an antimicrobial therapy duration of four to seven days for intra-abdominal infections (IAIs). Despite evidence that shorter treatments are appropriate for this disease state, longer durations frequently are utilized in clinical practice. This study compared the clinical outcomes of short course (SC) and prolonged course (PC) antimicrobial therapy for IAI. This was a noninterventional, retrospective, single-center study. Adults admitted with documented IAI who received an…
