The performance of probiotic bacterial strains is influenced by the carrier food and its functional components which while buffering the probiotic through the gastro-intestinal tract, contribute to


Digital Signal Processing: A Review Journal, Volume 119, December 2021

The field of digital histopathology has seen incredible growth in recent years.

This study supports SDGs 3 and 6 by showing that a handwashing intervention involving disgust-inducing messages, combined with the provision of handwashing stations in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, successfully increased rates of handwashing with soap after toilet use. These findings demonstrate the effectiveness of combining health-based messaging with non-health-based messaging when implementing water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions.
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in water pose a serious threat to human health due to their toxic effects. This manuscript evaluates various drinking water treatment processes to remove these compounds from drinking water, in order to assure the quality of water intended for human consumption.
Relative number of participants with a diagnosis of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) in studies that assessed its association with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
In studies of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, white women are overrepresented. There is limited and heterogeneous reporting of race and ethnicity information across studies and few include race and/or ethnicity variables in statistical analysis.
MiRNA mouse models are emerging tools to study the protective and/or deleterious effects of miRNAs in human diseases. In the current study, miR-455-3p TG and KO models were successfully generated by using pronuclear injection of miR-455-3p transgene to mouse embryo and CRISPER/Cas9 knockout techniques.
"A diverse range of biochemical and cellular assays are used by medicinal chemists to guide compound optimization. The data collected from these assays influence decisions taken on structure-activity relationship (SAR) campaigns. Therefore, it is paramount that medicinal chemists have a solid understanding of the strengths and limitations of each assay being used to characterize synthesized analogs. This Perspective Article takes a look at assays relevant to Gaucher, Pompei, Wolman, and Fabry disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Cystic Fibrosis."
This study explores the pathways from a nutrition-sensitive agriculture intervention to improved diets of women and young children. It also tests theoretical agriculture-to-nutrition pathways by comparing the authors' documented pathways with the pathways from the widely used TANDI (Tackling the Agriculture–Nutrition Disconnect in India) framework.
The high rate of SARS-CoV-2 infection poses a serious threat to public health. Previous studies have suggested that SARS-CoV-2 can infect human ovary, the core organ of the female reproductive system. However, it remains unclear which type of ovarian cells are easily infected by SARS-CoV-2 and whether ovarian infectivity differs from puberty to menopause.
The authors' goals of this study (associated with 13 dietary patterns or scenarios) are to assess 1) to what extent current food utilization in Indonesia (2 patterns) provides for meeting health and nutrition targets and how its GHGe (greenhouse gas emissions) and water footprints compare to global targets; and 2) how alternative dietary scenarios, optimized to meet nutrient needs at the lowest possible cost (7 scenarios) or designed to be more healthy and environmentally friendly (4 scenarios), compare to current food patterns for nutrient content, agricultural contributions to climate change, and freshwater conservation, as well as cost.
