Description Colistin is a last-resort antimicrobial used for the treatment of human infections caused by multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria. However, colistin is still widely used in intensive poultry production in Bangladesh. We aimed to investigate the dynamics and genetic diversity of colistin-resistant commensal Escherichia coli from broiler chickens. A total of 1200 E. coli strains were characterized from 20 broiler farms at three-time points along the production period. All strains were screened for mcr-1 to mcr-5 genes by a multiplex PCR, and their genetic diversity was measured by repetitive extragenic palindromic (REP)-PCR fingerprinting. Genomic diversity and characterization were performed by whole genome sequencing (WGS). Twenty-five percent of the commensal E. coli strains harbored mcr-1 genes. Frequency of mcr-1 gene detection correlated positively (odds ratio 1.71; 95% CI 0.96–3.06; p = 0.068) with the use of colistin in poultry flocks. REP-PCR profiles and WGS analysis showed diverse E. coli population carrying multiple antimicrobial resistance genes. Phylogenetic comparison of mcr-1-bearing strains recovered from this study with a global strain collection revealed wide phylogenetic relationship. This study identified a high prevalence of mcr-1 gene among genetically diverse E. coli populations from broiler chickens in Bangladesh suggesting a massive horizontal spread of mcr-1 rather than by clonal expansion.

Description Plasma concentrations of many cardiovascular and inflammatory proteins are altered after ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and may provide prognostic information. We conducted a large-scale proteomic analysis in patients with STEMI, correlating protein levels to infarct size and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) determined with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. We analysed 131 cardiovascular and inflammatory proteins using a multiplex proximity extension assay and blood samples obtained at baseline, 6, 24, and 96 h from the randomised clinical trial CHILL-MI. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging data at 4 ± 2 days and 6 months were available as per trial protocol. Using a linear regression model with bootstrap resampling and false discovery rate adjustment we identified five proteins (ST2, interleukin-6, pentraxin-3, interleukin-10, renin, and myoglobin) with elevated values corresponding to larger infarct size or worse LVEF and four proteins (TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand, TNF-related activation induced cytokine, interleukin-16, and cystatin B) with values inversely related to LVEF and infarct size, concluding that among 131 circulating inflammatory and cardiovascular proteins in the acute and sub-acute phase of STEMI, nine showed a relationship with infarct size and LVEF post-STEMI, with IL-6 and ST2 exhibiting the strongest association.

Description To explore the causes of persistent abnormal muscle response (AMR) after microvascular decompression (MVD) for hemifacial spasm (HFS) and the clinical outcomes of these patients. MVDs performed in Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital in 2017 were retrospectively studied, and 326 patients with HFS were classified into two groups based on whether AMR disappeared or persisted following MVD. The clinical features, treatment efficacy and postoperative complications were compared between the two groups. 305 patients with disappeared AMR after decompression were classified as Group A. In Group B, the 21 patients exhibited persistent AMR after successful MVD. The preoperative duration of symptoms in Group B was significantly longer than that in Group A (P < 0.001), and no significant difference was identified between the two groups in terms of gender, side, age and offending vessels (P > 0.05). The immediate postoperative cure rate of Group A (88.9%)was significantly higher than that in Group B (28.6%, P < 0.001), furthermore, the two groups were not different in the long-term outcome and the incidence of surgical complications (P > 0.05). The long preoperative duration of HFS patients may account for persistent AMR after successful decompression, and it is more likely for these patients to get delayed cured, the long-term outcomes showed no difference compared to those in patients with disappeared AMR after MVD.

Description Age estimation is a major step in forensic and legal procedures. Its relevance has been increasing due to growing society issues, such as identification of missing people, crimes against minors or lack of valid identification papers from locals or foreigners. Evaluation of the cut-off value of the Third Molar Maturation Index (I3M) = 0.08 for discriminating minors from adults in the Portuguese population. The left lower third molars were analysed by applying a specific cut-off value of 0.08 determined by Cameriere et al. in 2008. A sample of 778 digital panoramic radiographs of a representative Portuguese sample (442 females and 336 males), in the age range of 12–24 years (mean age 17.7 ± 2.98 years in females and 18.1 ± 3.0 years in males), was retrospectively evaluated. I3M decreased as the real age gradually increased in both sexes. The 0.08 cut-off score was valuable in discriminating adults from minors. According to the pooled results, the accuracy, by means of area under the curve, was 92.8% (95% confidence interval (CI) 91.0–94.6%). The proportion of correctly classified subjects (sensitivity) was 90.7% (95% CI 88.7–92.8%) and the specificity was 94.9% (95% CI 93.3–96.4%). The results show that I3M is a valuable method to differentiate minors from adults in the Portuguese population.

Description Noble metal nanoparticles illuminated at their plasmonic resonance wavelength turn into heat nanosources. This phenomenon has prompted the development of numerous applications in science and technology. Simultaneous optical manipulation of such resonant nanoparticles could certainly extend the functionality and potential applications of optothermal tools. In this article, we experimentally demonstrate optical transport of single and multiple resonant nanoparticles (colloidal gold spheres of radius 200 nm) directed by tailored transverse phase-gradient forces propelling them around a 2D optical trap. We show how the phase-gradient force can be designed to efficiently change the speed of the nanoparticles. We have found that multiple hot nanoparticles assemble in the form of a quasi-stable group whose motion around the laser trap is also controlled by such optical propulsion forces. This assembly experiences a significant increase in the local temperature, which creates an optothermal convective fluid flow dragging tracer particles into the assembly. Thus, the created assembly is a moving heat source controlled by the propulsion force, enabling indirect control of fluid flows as a micro-optofluidic tool. The existence of these flows, probably caused by the temperature-induced Marangoni effect at the liquid water/superheated water interface, is confirmed by tracking free tracer particles migrating towards the assembly. We propose a straightforward method to control the assembly size, and therefore its temperature, by using a nonuniform optical propelling force that induces the splitting or merging of the group of nanoparticles. We envision further development of microscale optofluidic tools based on these achievements. New opportunities for controlling the motion of laser-heated gold nanoparticles and the associated convection currents in the surrounding fluid are achieved by using tailored light forces. The procedure has been developed by Jose Rodrigo and colleagues at the Complutense University of Madrid. It is based on illuminating nanospheres at wavelengths that create resonant oscillations in surface electrons, a phenomenon known as plasmon resonance. This allows sufficient absorbance of light for the nanospheres to become a heat source. The tailored light forces gave fine control over the direction and speed of the hot nanospheres, both individually and in groups. The refined ability to form, merge and split clusters of nanoparticles could offer new applications in optofluidics—the science of controlling fluids and materials they contain with light.

Description Although epilepsy is considered a public health issue, the burden imposed by the unpredictability of seizures is mainly borne by the patients. Predicting seizures based on electroencephalography has had mixed success, and the idiosyncratic character of epilepsy makes a single method of detection or prediction for all patients almost impossible. To address this problem, we demonstrate herein that epileptic seizures can not only be detected by global chemometric analysis of data from selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry but also that a simple mathematical model makes it possible to predict these seizures (by up to 4 h 37 min in advance with 92% and 75% of samples correctly classified in training and leave-one-out-cross-validation, respectively). These findings should stimulate the development of non-invasive applications (e.g., electronic nose) for different types of epilepsy and thereby decrease of the unpredictability of epileptic seizures.

Description Rapid human population growth and associated urbanization lead to increased artificial illumination of the environment. By changing the natural light–dark cycle, artificial lighting can affect the functioning of natural ecosystems. Many plants rely on insects in order to reproduce but these insects are known to be disturbed by artificial light. Therefore, plant–insect interactions may be affected when exposed to artificial illumination. These effects can potentially be reduced by using different light spectra than white light. We studied the effect of artificial lighting on plant–insect interactions in the Silene latifolia–Hadena bicruris system using a field set-up with four different light treatments: red, green, white and a dark control. We compared the proportion of fertilized flowers and fertilized ovules as well as the infestation of fruits by Hadena bicruris, a pollinating seed predator. We found no difference in the proportion of fertilized flowers among the treatments. The proportion of fruits infested by H. bicruris was however significantly higher under green and white light and a significantly lower proportion of fertilized ovules was found under green light. We show that artificial light with different colours impacts plant–insect interactions differently, with direct consequences for plant fitness.

Description The coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 emerging from Wuhan, China has developed into a global epidemic. Here, we combine both human mobility and non-pharmaceutical interventions (social-distancing and suspected-cases isolation) into SEIR transmission model to understand how coronavirus transmits in a global environment. Dynamic trends of region-specific time-variant reproduction number, social-distancing rate, work-resumption rate, and suspected-cases isolation rate have been estimated and plotted for each region by fitting stochastic transmission processes to the real total confirmed cases reported of each region. We find after shutdown in Wuhan, the reproduction number in Wuhan greatly declined from 6·982 (95% CI 2·558–14·668) on January 23rd, 2020 to 1.130 (95% CI 0.289–3.279) on February 7th, 2020, and there was a higher intervention level in terms of social-distancing and suspected-cases isolation in Wuhan than the Chinese average and Western average, for the period from the shutdown in Wuhan to mid-March. Future epidemic trajectories of Western countries up to October 10th, 2020, have been predicted with 95% confidence intervals. Through the scenario simulation, we discover the benefits of earlier international travel ban and rigorous intervention strategies, and the significance of non-pharmaceutical interventions. From a global perspective, it is vital for each country to control the risks of imported cases, and execute rigorous non-pharmaceutical interventions before successful vaccination development.

Description Many second-line therapies are recently approved for patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), in whom protein malnutrition is prevalent that would affect treatment outcomes. In this study, we aimed to investigate the role of pre-sarcopenia and muscle restoration in patients with sorafenib-failed advanced HCC. From August 2012 to March 2017, 385 patients who developed radiology-proven HCC progression after sorafenib treatment were enrolled in the study. Pre-sarcopenia is defined as transverse psoas muscle thickness per body height < 16.8 mm/m, which was prevalent (64.7%) in our patients. Age > 60 years, female gender, and body mass index < 22 kg/m2 were independent predictors to the development of pre-sarcopenia. Patients with muscle depletion had significantly worse post-progression survival (PPS) compared with their counterparts (median PPS: 3.8 vs. 5.8 months, p = 0.003), particularly in those with intermediate liver reserves (Child–Pugh class B or Albumin-bilirubin grade 2). Besides, pre-sarcopenia independently predicted post-progression mortality in sorafenib-failed HCC (hazard ratio: 1.340, p = 0.012). In patients who developed pre-sarcopenia before sorafenib treatment, muscle restoration was associated with a longer PPS compared with their counterparts (6.3 vs. 3.6 months, p = 0.043). In conclusion, pre-sarcopenia independently determined the outcomes of sorafenib-failed HCC. Nutrition support to restore muscle mass would prolong survival for higher-risk patients.

Description Valid biomarkers for a better prognostic prediction of the clinical course in esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) are still not implemented. Integrin alpha V (ITGAV), a transmembrane glycoprotein responsible for cell-to-matrix binding has been found to enhance tumor progression in several tumor entities. The expression pattern and biological role of ITGAV expression in esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) has not been analyzed so far. Aim of the study is to evaluate the expression level of ITGAV in a very large collective of EAC and its impact on individual patients´ prognosis. 585 patients with esophageal adenocarcinoma were analyzed immunohistochemically for ITGAV. The data was correlated with clinical, pathological and molecular data (TP53, HER2/neu, c-myc, GATA6, PIK3CA and KRAS). A total of 85 patients (14.3%) out of 585 analyzable tumors showed an ITGAV expression and intratumoral heterogeneity was low. ITGAV expression was correlated with a shortened overall-survival in the patients´ group that underwent primary surgery (p = 0.014) but not in the group of patients that received neoadjuvant treatment before surgery. No correlation between any of the analyzed molecular marker (mutations or amplifications) (TP53, HER2, c-myc, GATA6, PIK3CA and KRAS) and ITGAV expression could be observed. A multivariate cox-regression model was performed which showed tumor stage, lymph node metastasis and ITGAV expression as independent prognostic markers for overall-survival in the group of patients without neoadjuvant treatment. ITGAV expression is correlated with an impaired patient outcome in the group of patients without neoadjuvant therapy and serves as a prognostic factor in EAC.

Description The present study aimed to evaluate the effects of C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) on meiotic arrest and developmental competence of bovine oocyte derived from follicles of different sizes. Collected immature cumulus-oocyte complexes from small follicles (< 3 mm) and medium follicles (3–8 mm) were cultured for 6 h in basal medium supplementated without or with 200 nM CNP. We observed that CNP effectively sustained meiotic arrest at germinal vesicle stage in in vitro cultured bovine oocytes from follicles of different sizes. Moreover, CNP treatment significantly improved the levels of cGMP in both cumulus cells and oocytes, as well as the levels of cAMP in oocytes regardless of follicle size. Based on the above results, we tested the effect of a novel in vitro maturation (IVM) system based on CNP-pretreatment, including a pre-IVM phase for 6 h using 200 nM CNP, followed by a extended IVM phase for 28 h, on developmental competence of bovine oocyte derived from small follicles (< 3 mm) and medium follicles (3–8 mm) compared to standard IVM system. The results showed that athough the novel IVM system based on CNP-pretreatment enhanced the developmental potencial of oocytes obtained from large follicles, but had no effect on the developmental comptence of oocytes obtained from small follicles.

Description Appendicitis is one of the most frequent emergencies in pediatric surgery, yet current biomarkers for diagnosis are unspecific and have low predictive values. As neutrophils and extracellular traps (ETs) are an essential component of the immune defense against bacterial infections, and appendicitis is considered an inflammation reaction of the appendix, we hypothesized that neutrophil activation and NET formation play an essential role in appendicitis development and maintenance. Therefore, this pilot study aimed to establish a murine model of appendicitis and to evaluate ETs markers to diagnose appendicitis in mice and humans. The study used 20 (12 appendicitis- and 8 controls) 6-week old mice which underwent advanced appendicitis induction using a modified caecal ligation puncture procedure. During the study, cell-free DNA, neutrophil elastase (NE), myeloperoxidase (MPO), and citrullinated Histone H3 (H3cit) were assessed. Additionally, samples of 5 children with histologically confirmed appendicitis and 5 matched controls with catarrhal appendicitis, were examined for the same biomarkers. Moreover, NE, MPO, and H3cit were assessed histologically via immunofluorescence in mice and humans. All mice in the appendicitis group developed an advanced form of appendicitis with focal peritonitis. In mice and humans with appendicitis, markers of neutrophil activation and ETs formation (especially cfDNA, NE and H3cit) were significantly elevated in blood and tissue compared to controls. Ultimately, biomarkers correlated extremely well with tissue expression and thus disease severity. It appears that neutrophil activation and possibly NETs contribute to appendicitis development and biomarkers of neutrophil activation and ET formation reflect disease severity and thus could be used as biomarkers for appendicitis. However, large prospective clinical studies are needed to confirm our findings.

Description The World Health Organization characterized COVID-19 as a pandemic in March 2020, the second pandemic of the twenty-first century. Expanding virus populations, such as that of SARS-CoV-2, accumulate a number of narrowly shared polymorphisms, imposing a confounding effect on traditional clustering methods. In this context, approaches that reduce the complexity of the sequence space occupied by the SARS-CoV-2 population are necessary for robust clustering. Here, we propose subdividing the global SARS-CoV-2 population into six well-defined subtypes and 10 poorly represented genotypes named tentative subtypes by focusing on the widely shared polymorphisms in nonstructural (nsp3, nsp4, nsp6, nsp12, nsp13 and nsp14) cistrons and structural (spike and nucleocapsid) and accessory (ORF8) genes. The six subtypes and the additional genotypes showed amino acid replacements that might have phenotypic implications. Notably, three mutations (one of them in the Spike protein) were responsible for the geographical segregation of subtypes. We hypothesize that the virus subtypes detected in this study are records of the early stages of SARS-CoV-2 diversification that were randomly sampled to compose the virus populations around the world. The genetic structure determined for the SARS-CoV-2 population provides substantial guidelines for maximizing the effectiveness of trials for testing candidate vaccines or drugs.

Description Ether-à-go-go-1 (EAG1), one of the potassium channels, is involved in various physiological processes and plays an important role in the tumorigenesis of many kinds of cancer. EAG1 is highly expressed in hepatocarcinoma cells and is closely related to clinical prognosis, but the molecular mechanism remains elusive. In this study, we verified that EAG1 promotes the proliferation of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) both in vitro and in vivo. It promotes cell cycle progression by inhibiting the ubiquitination of SKP2. In addition, EAG1 promotes the migration and invasion of HCC by promoting cell pseudopod formation. Furthermore, in a high-pressure plasmid-injected mouse liver orthotopic carcinoma model, astemizole, an EAG family blocker, can significantly inhibit the formation of liver cancer. Meanwhile, liver-specific EAG1 knockout mice show resistance to hepatocarcinogenesis. This research demonstrated that EAG1 plays an important role in the progression of HCC, and could be a potential therapeutic target for HCC.

Description Evolutionary models show that human cooperation can arise through direct reciprocity relationships. However, it remains unclear which psychological mechanisms proximally motivate individuals to reciprocate. Recent evidence suggests that the psychological motives for choosing to reciprocate trust differ between individuals, which raises the question whether these differences have a stable distribution in a population or are rather an artifact of the experimental task. Here, we combine data from three independent trust game studies to find that the relative prevalence of different reciprocity motives is highly stable across participant samples. Furthermore, the distribution of motives is relatively unaffected by changes to the salient features of the experimental paradigm. Finally, the motive classification assigned by our computational modeling analysis corresponds to the participants’ own subjective experience of their psychological decision process, and no existing models of social preference can account for the observed individual differences in reciprocity motives. These findings support the view that reciprocal decision-making is not just regulated by individual differences in 'pro-social’ versus ‘pro-self’ tendencies, but also by trait-like differences across several alternative pro-social motives, whose distribution in a population is stable.
