Oct 2nd, 2021 - In 2018, the eighth edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer Tumor-Node-Metastasis classification and staging system was implemented. Few reports were made comparing the performance of different editions of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) system. Therefore, this study aimed to examine the prognostic predictability from the sixth to the eighth editions of the AJCC staging ...

Sep 23rd, 2021 - To combat coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), many countries have used contact tracing apps, including Japan's voluntary-use contact-confirming application (COCOA). The current study aimed to identify industry and workplace characteristics associated with the downloading of this COVID-19 contact tracing app. This cross-sectional study of full-time workers used an online survey. Multiple logist...

Sep 23rd, 2021 - Single cell technologies are rapidly generating large amounts of data that enables us to understand biological systems at single-cell resolution. However, joint analysis of datasets generated by independent labs remains challenging due to a lack of consistent terminology to describe cell types. Here, we present OnClass, an algorithm and accompanying software for automatically classifying cells ...

Sep 22nd, 2021 - Ecological interactions uphold ecosystem structure and functioning. However, as species richness increases, the number of possible interactions rises exponentially. More than 6,000 species of coral reef fishes exist across the world's tropical oceans, resulting in an almost innumerable array of possible trophic interactions. Distilling general patterns in these interactions across different bio...

Sep 22nd, 2021 - Coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection, is now pandemic. While most Covid-19 patients will experience mild symptoms, a small proportion will develop severe disease, which could be fatal. Clinically, Covid-19 patients manifest fever with dry cough, fatigue and dyspnoea, and in severe cases develop into acute respirato...

Sep 22nd, 2021 - The aortic regurgitation (AR) index, proposed as an objective indicator of postprocedural AR, decreases in proportion to AR severity, besides reportedly providing additional prognostic information. Meanwhile, left ventricular (LV) function has also been considered an essential prognostic factor. This study aimed to clarify whether LV function affected the AR index using cardiac catheterization ...

Sep 21st, 2021 - The burden of periprosthetic distal femoral fractures is projected to increase accordingly with the increase in total knee arthroplasties (TKAs) performed globally in the future. Less invasive plating and intramedullary (IM) nailing techniques still seem to provide similar outcomes based on current literature. Double-plating and combination techniques may prove to be beneficial in the future pe...

Sep 21st, 2021 - Complications related to the extensor mechanism and patellofemoral joint continue to be the most common cause of pain and indication for surgical revision following total knee arthroplasty. Numerous risk factors related to the patient, implant, and technical performance of the procedure have been identified. The Ortiguera and Berry classification system is widely used for the systematic classif...

Sep 21st, 2021 - Ankle fractures are common injuries to the lower extremity with approximately 20% sustaining a concomitant injury to the syndesmosis. Although the deltoid ligament is not formally included in the syndesmotic complex, it plays an important role in the mortise stability. Therefore, its integrity should be always evaluated when syndesmotic injury is suspected. Given the anatomic variability of the...

Sep 18th, 2021 - Intraspecific competition is a major force in mediating population dynamics, fuelling adaptation, and potentially leading to evolutionary diversification. Among the evolutionary arms races between parasites, one of the most fundamental and intriguing behavioural adaptations and counter-adaptations are superparasitism and superparasitism avoidance. However, the underlying mechanisms and ecologic...

Sep 16th, 2021 - Mass extinctions have repeatedly shaped global biodiversity. The Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) mass extinction caused the demise of numerous vertebrate groups, and its aftermath saw the rapid diversification of surviving mammals, birds, frogs, and teleost fishes. However, the effects of the K-Pg extinction on the evolution of snakes-a major clade of predators comprising over 3,700 living species-...

Sep 16th, 2021 - The relative importance of evolutionary history and ecology for traits that drive ecosystem processes is poorly understood. Consumers are essential drivers of nutrient cycling on coral reefs, and thus ecosystem productivity. We use nine consumer "chemical traits" associated with nutrient cycling, collected from 1,572 individual coral reef fishes (178 species spanning 41 families) in two biogeog...

Sep 12th, 2021 - Soil-transmitted helminths (STH) infections still present a global health problem. Mass drug administration (MDA) is a widely applied strategy to reduce morbidity and mortality caused by STH. Yet, this approach has some shortcomings. In this study, we analyzed the impact of a multi-intervention integrated deworming approach including MDA, health education (HE), and environmental sanitation impr...
