Life stress and mucosal inflammation may influence symptom onset and severity in certain gastrointestinal disorders, particularly irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), in connection with dysregulated intestinal barrier. However, the mechanism responsible remains unknown. Crowding is a validated animal model reproducing naturalistic psychosocial stress, whose(More)
BACKGROUND Allergic reactions to peanuts (Arachis hypogaea L.) can cause severe symptoms and in some cases can be fatal, but avoidance is difficult due to the prevalence of peanut-derived products in processed foods. One strategy of reducing the allergenicity of peanuts is to alter or eliminate the allergenic proteins through mutagenesis. Other seed quality(More)

BACKGROUND Malassezia species are considered opportunistic yeasts of increasing clinical importance. These lipophilic yeasts are associated with various human diseases, especially pityriasis versicolor (PV), a chronic superficial scaling dermatomycosis. AIMS The aim of this study was to isolate, identify and analyze the distribution of the different(More)
We model the behavior of a big (Brazil) nut in a medium of smaller nuts with a stochastic asymmetric simple exclusion dynamics of a polymer-monomer lattice system. The polymer or`rod' can move u p o r d o wn in an external negative eld, occupying N horizontal lattice sites where the monomers cannot enter. The monomers (at most one per site) or``uid(More)
Designing to support memory for older individuals is a complex challenge in human-computer interaction (HCI) research. Past literature on human memory has mapped processes for recalling past experiences, learning new things, remembering to carry out future intentions and the importance of attention. However, the understanding of how older adults perceive(More)
In recent decades, many technical improvements have been achieved in the use of prosthetic joints, and the risk of infection has been greatly reduced, to current rates of 0.4-2.0% following primary knee replacement. However, the increasing rate of joint replacements being performed means that the absolute number of such infections remains significant and(More)
Ectopic calcifications and even bone formation have been linked to GNAS gene mutations. A 51-year-old Caucasian female had been diagnosed of pseudo-pseudohypoparathyroidism (PPHP) in 1989. She has always had normal serum parathyroid hormone, calcium, and phosphorus levels. A non-contrast computed tomography of the head was done in 2013 and it showed finely(More)
