KOL-Index: 313 The evolution of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) virus leads to new variants that warrant timely epidemiological characterization. Here we use the dense genomic surveillance data generated by the COVID-19 Genomics UK Consortium to reconstruct the dynamics of 71 different lineages in each of 315 English local authorities between September 2020 and June 2021. ...

KOL-Index: 57 Importance: Screening for breast and colorectal cancer has resulted in reductions in mortality; however, questions remain regarding how these interventions are being diffused to all segments of the population. If an intervention is less amenable to diffusion, it could be associated with disparities in mortality rates, especially in rural vs urban areas. Objectives: To compare the prevalence ...

KOL-Index: 25 The response to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has been hampered by lack of an effective severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) antiviral therapy. Here we report the successful use of remdesivir in a patient with COVID-19 and the prototypic genetic antibody deficiency X-linked agammaglobulinaemia (XLA). Despite evidence of complement activation and a ...

KOL-Index: 21 Doppler weather radar imaging enabled the rapid recovery of the Sutter's Mill meteorite after a rare 4-kiloton of TNT-equivalent asteroid impact over the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in northern California. The recovered meteorites survived a record high-speed entry of 28.6 kilometers per second from an orbit close to that of Jupiter-family comets (Tisserand's parameter = 2.8 ± 0.3). ...

KOL-Index: 19 Publisher This chapter discusses that the development of microchannel plate (MCP) electron multipliers spawned a new generation of detectors for charged and neutral particles. These are position-sensitive or “imaging” devices that indicate the positions of particle impact on the detector surface. Initially developed as an image intensifier, the microchannel plate typically consist of a disk ...

KOL-Index: 19 Abstract Interleukin-2, which conveys essential signals for effective immunity and immunological tolerance, operates through a heterotrimeric receptor comprised of α, β and γ chains. Genetic deficiency of the α or γ chain causes debilitating disease. Here we identify human interleukin-2 receptor (IL-2R) β chain (CD122) gene defects as a cause of life-threatening ...

KOL-Index: 17 OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of Casilan(®) on (13)C-caffeine metabolism in healthy Nigerian children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: TWELVE HEALTHY NIGERIAN CHILDREN (MALE: six, female: six) aged 3-8 years were studied on three occasions. After an overnight fast, the children were studied after ingesting Casilan(®) only (Week 1). They were restudied after ingesting 3 mg/kg of labeled caffeine ...

KOL-Index: 17 OBJECTIVES: This paper investigates the potential for a standardised electronic health record (EHR) designed for conventional medicine also to be used by complementary and alternative medicine. METHOD: The research was undertaken using anonymised samples of patient records from homoeopathy practices, to investigate if the patient data could be modelled using the forthcoming joint European ...

KOL-Index: 15 Aboveground fine litterfall and decomposition are critical processes for transferring nutrients from forest biomass to soils, and the conversion of Brazilian terra-firme forest to tree plantations with varied litterfall characteristics has altered soil nitrogen (N) dynamics and stores at the Curuá-Una Forest Reserve, Pará, Brazil. In this study, we investigated the relationship between soil ...
