Some new opial dynamic inequalities with weighted functions on time scales
(Element d.o.o., 2015-01-01)
In this paper we prove some new dynamic inequalities with two weight functions and some new dynamic inequalities with two unknown functions of Opial type on time scales. The main results will be proved by employing Holder's ...
Specifying the target difference in the primary outcome for a randomised controlled trial: guidance for researchers
(Springer Nature, 2015-01-15)
Background: Central to the design of a randomised controlled trial is the calculation of the number of participants needed. This is typically achieved by specifying a target difference and calculating the corresponding ...

Endoplasmic reticulum stress induces ligand-independent tnfr1-mediated necroptosis in l929 cells
(Springer Nature, 2015-01-08)
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-induced cellular dysfunction and death is associated with several human diseases. It has been widely reported that ER stress kills through activation of the intrinsic mitochondrial apoptotic ...
Corpus callosum area in patients with bipolar disorder with and without psychotic features: an international multicentre study
(Joule Inc., 2015-09-01)
Background Previous studies have reported MRI abnormalities of the corpus callosum (CC) in patients with bipolar disorder (BD), although only a few studies have directly compared callosal areas in psychotic versus nonpsychotic ...
Contamination and spatial variation of heavy metals in the soil-rice system in Nanxun county, southeastern China
(MDPI AG, 2015-01-28)
There is an increasing concern about heavy metal contamination in farmland in China and worldwide. In order to reveal the spatial features of heavy metals in the soil-rice system, soil and rice samples were collected from ...
Aerosol-mediated delivery of aav2/6-iκbα attenuates lipopolysaccharide-induced acute lung injury in rats
(Mary Ann Liebert Inc, 2015-01-01)
Inhibition of the proinflammatory transcription factor NF-kappa B has previously been shown to attenuate the inflammatory response in tissue after injury. However, the feasibility and efficacy of aerosolized adeno-associated ...
Systolic blood pressure variation and mean heart rate is associated with cognitive dysfunction in patients with high cardiovascular risknovelty and significance
(Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2015-01-12)
Elevated systolic blood pressure (SBP) correlates to cognitive decline and incident dementia. The effects of heart rate (HR), visit to visit HR variation, and visit to visit SBP variation are less well established. Patients ...
The behavioural repertoire of arctic charr (salvelinus alpinus(l.)) in captivity: a case study for testing ethogram completeness and reducing observer effects
In the last 20years, research has been directed towards possible differences in the mating behaviour of species belonging to the Salmonidae family that may reproductively isolate wild populations from escaped hatchery or ...
Impact of threat level, task instruction, and individual characteristics on cold pressor pain and fear among children and their parents
The cold pressor task (CPT) is increasingly used to induce experimental pain in children, but the specific methodology of the CPT is quite variable across pediatric studies. This study examined how subtle variations in CPT ...
