OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of obesity on patient outcomes after emergency surgery. METHODS A list of all patients undergoing emergent general surgical procedures during the 12 months ending in July 2012 was obtained from the operating room log. A chart review was performed to obtain the following data: patient(More)
Enterocytes exist in close association with tissue macrophages, whose activation during inflammatory processes leads to the release of nitric oxide (NO). Repair from mucosal injury requires the migration of enterocytes into the mucosal defect, a process that requires connexin43 (Cx43)-mediated gap junction communication between adjacent enterocytes.(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common neurodegenerative and dementing disorder, is characterized by extracellular amyloid deposition, intracellular neurofibrillary tangle formation, and neuronal loss. We are still behind in AD research in terms of knowledge regarding understanding its pathophysiology and designing therapeutics because of the lack of an(More)
1 The " tapering talk " starting on May 22, 2013, when Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke first spoke of the possibility of the U.S. central bank reducing its security purchases, had a sharp negative impact on emerging markets. India was among those hardest hit. The rupee depreciated by 18 percent at one point, causing concerns that the country was(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common cause of dementia, results from the interplay of various deregulated mechanisms triggering a complex pathophysiology. The neurons suffer from and slowly succumb to multiple irreversible damages, resulting in cell death and thus memory deficits that characterize AD. In spite of our vast knowledge, it is still unclear(More)
BACKGROUND Intussusception is the most common cause of bowel obstruction in infants and children. Although early recurrence is not uncommon, recurrence years later is rare. METHODS A 13-year-old male with a history of recurrent intussusception at ages 2 and 5 presented with recurrent intussusception 8 years later. The diagnosis was made using computed(More)
Active glycine transport was demonstrated in microvillous (maternal-facing, BBM) and basal (fetal-facing, BCM) plasma membranes of the human term placental syncytiotrophoblast. The kinetic studies showed that the amino acid had a distinct overshoot at 1 min in BBM and 3 min in BCM vesicles while a steady state rate was achieved in approx 5 min in both the(More)
