Harnessing hierarchical nano- and micro-fabrication technologies for musculoskeletal tissue engineering
Cells within a tissue are able to perceive, interpret and respond to the biophysical, biomechanical, and biochemical properties of the 3D extracellular matrix environment in which they reside. Such stimuli regulate cell ...
Lessons learnt from the first emep intensive measurement periods
(Copernicus GmbH, 2012-09-10)
The first EMEP intensive measurement periods were held in June 2006 and January 2007. The measurements aimed to characterize the aerosol chemical compositions, including the gas/aerosol partitioning of inorganic compounds. ...
The janus face of death receptor signaling during tumor immunoediting
(Frontiers Media SA, 2016-10-31)
Cancer immune surveillance is essential for the inhibition of carcinogenesis. Malignantly transformed cells can be recognized by both the innate and adaptive immune systems through different mechanisms. Immune effector ...
The effect of chemical amendments used for phosphorus abatement on greenhouse gas and ammonia emissions from dairy cattle slurry: synergies and pollution swapping
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2015-06-08)
Land application of cattle slurry can result in incidental and chronic phosphorus (P) loss to waterbodies, leading to eutrophication. Chemical amendment of slurry has been proposed as a management practice, allowing slurry ...

Multiwavelength follow-up of a rare icecube neutrino multiplet
(EDP Sciences, 2017-11-01)
On February 17, 2016, the IceCube real-time neutrino search identified, for the first time, three muon neutrino candidates arriving within 100 s of one another, consistent with coming from the same point in the sky. Such ...
Clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a multifaceted podiatry intervention for falls prevention in older people: a multicentre cohort randomised controlled trial (the reducing falls with orthoses and a multifaceted podiatry intervention trial)
(National Institute for Health Research, 2017-04-01)
Background: Falls are a serious cause of morbidity and cost to individuals and society. Evidence suggests that foot problems and inappropriate footwear may increase the risk of falling. Podiatric interventions could help ...
Characterizing the emergence and persistence of drug resistant mutations in hiv-1 subtype c infections using 454 ultra deep pyrosequencing
(Springer Nature, 2013-01-30)
Background: The role of HIV-1 RNA in the emergence of resistance to antiretroviral therapies (ARTs) is well documented while less is known about the role of historical viruses stored in the proviral DNA. The primary focus ...
Inhibition of burkholderia multivorans adhesion to lung epithelial cells by bivalent lactosides
(MDPI AG, 2012-08-24)
Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc) is an opportunistic pathogen in cystic fibrosis patients which is inherently resistant to antimicrobial agents. The mechanisms of attachment and pathogenesis of Bcc, a group of 17 species, ...
Implementing balanced harvesting: practical challenges and other implications
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2016-01-13)
Balanced harvesting (BH) has been proposed as an alternative to the paradigm of more selective fishing as practiced in most European and North American fisheries management. We examine options for the implementation of BH ...
