Results of a Study to Increase Savoring the Moment: Differential Impact on Positive and Negative Outcomes
Positive psychology has been increasingly moving towards testing interventions to increase positive outcomes and decrease negative outcomes. One of these possible interventions involves increasingExpand
Salmonella–Host Interactions – Modulation of the Host Innate Immune System
This review outlines salmonellosis and the clinical manifestations between typhoidal and NTS infections as well as discussing the host immune response to infection and the models that are being used to elucidate the mechanisms involved in Salmonella pathogenicity. Expand
A Model System for Studying the Transcriptomic and Physiological Changes Associated with Mammalian Host-Adaptation by Leptospira interrogans Serovar Copenhageni
The DMC model provides a facile system for studying the transcriptional and antigenic changes associated with mammalian host-adaption, selection of targets for mutagenesis, and the identification of previously unrecognized virulence determinants. Expand
A role for human brain pericytes in neuroinflammation
Targeting brain pericytes, as well as microglia and astrocytes, may provide novel opportunities for reducing brain inflammation and maintaining BBB function and brain homeostasis in human brain disease. Expand
Savoring Helps Most When You Have Little: Interaction Between Savoring the Moment and Uplifts on Positive Affect and Satisfaction with Life
Savoring the moment is a means of generating, prolonging, or intensifying positive emotions while a positive event is occurring. While the occurrence of positive events is integral to savoring theExpand
Smarter: The New Science of Building Brain Power
Can you make yourself smarter? Scientists have always believed that the one thing that couldn't improve was intelligence. But now science journalist Dan Hurley investigates the new field ofExpand
Characterisation of multidrug-resistant Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli cultured from pigs in China: co-occurrence of extended-spectrum β-lactamase- and mcr-1-encoding genes on plasmids.
Ten colistin-resistant isolates with minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of 8-12 mg/L were identified and found to be positive by PCR for the mcr-1 gene, which is a follow-up to an earlier investigation. Expand
Multidrug-Resistant Escherichia coli in Bovine Animals, Europe
Of 150 Escherichia coli strains cultured from specimens taken from cattle in Europe, 3 had elevated MICs against colistin and were identified as mcr-1–positive and co-resistant to β-lactam, florfenicol, and fluoroquinolone antimicrobial compounds. Expand
The Endoscopic Management of Chronic Frontal Sinusitis Associated with Frontal Sinus Posterior Table Erosion
Endoscopic frontal sinusotomy can be used safely for the definitive management of frontal sinuitis associated with posterior table erosion, and may represent the preferred approach for the treatment of this problem. Expand
Complete genetic analysis of a Salmonella enterica serovar Indiana isolate accompanying four plasmids carrying mcr-1, ESBL and other resistance genes in China.
This is the first report of the complete nucleotide sequence of one mcr-1-carrying MDR S. enterica serovar Indiana strain and Interestingly, comparative sequence analysis revealed the plasmids pD90-1 and pD 90-2 showed considerable nucleotide similarity to pHNSHP45-2 and pHNS HP45, respectively.
