The Role of Hydroxyl Group Acidity on the Activity of Silica-Supported Secondary Amines for the Self-Condensation of n-Butanal.

Hide Abstract
The catalytic activity of secondary amines supported on mesoporous silica for the self-condensation of n-butanal to 2-ethylhexenal can be altered significantly by controlling the Brønsted acidity of M?OH species present on the surface of the support. In this study, M?OH (M=Sn, Zr, Ti, and Al) groups were doped onto the surface of SBA-15, a mesoporous silica, prior to grafting secondary propyl amine groups on to the support surface. The catalytic activity was found to depend critically on the synthesis procedure, the nature and amount of metal species introduced and the spatial separation between the acidic sites and amine groups. DFT analysis of the reaction pathway indicates that, for weak Brønsted acid groups, such as Si?OH, the rate-limiting step is C?C bond formation, whereas for stronger Brønsted acid groups, such as Ti and Al, hydrolysis of iminium species produced upon C?C bond formation is the rate-limiting step. Theoretical analysis shows further that the apparent activation energy decreases with increasing Brønsted acidity of the M?OH groups, consistent with experimental observation.

Hide Abstract
Infection with hepatitis C virus (HCV) or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) may be associated with atherosclerosis and vascular disease. Macrophages are a major component of atherosclerotic plaque, and classically activated (M1) macrophages contribute to plaque instability. Our goal was to identify plasma biomarkers that reflect macrophage inflammation and are associated with subclinical atherosclerosis.

Clostridium difficile infection after adult autologous stem cell transplantation: a multicenter study of epidemiology and risk factors.

Hide Abstract
We sought to describe the epidemiology of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) among adult recipients of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (auto-HSCT) within the first year after HSCT in centers with variable epidemiology of hypertoxigenic strains. A multicenter, retrospective nested case-control study was conducted among 873 auto-HSCT recipients at Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH) and Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR) between January 2003 and December 2008. Despite center differences in the prevalence of NAP-1 strains during the study period (21% to 43% at JHH versus 80% to 84% in HMR), the 1-year incidence of CDI was similar in the 2 hospitals (6.2% at JHH versus 5.7% at HMR). The median time to infection was 11 days (interquartile range, 1 to 27 days). In case-control analyses, grade ?2 mucositis (odds ratio [OR], 3.00; P = .02) and receipt of a fourth-generation cephalosporin (OR, 2.76; P = .04) were identified as predictors for CDI. Mucositis was the strongest predictor of risk for CDI in multivariate analysis (adjusted OR, 2.77; P = .03). CDI is a common and early complication of auto-HSCT. Treatment-related gastrointestinal mucosal damage, along with the potentially modifiable risk of antimicrobial exposure, influence the risk for CDI early after auto-HSCT.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Positron emission tomography (PET) is a well-established and integral component of multimodality imaging in oncology. However, the expanded use of PET in oncological and also non-oncological imaging (such as in assessing inflammatory conditions) has identified more lesions or tumors at unsuspected locations, such as in the large bowel during examination of patients not known to have colorectal disease. We review the clinical significance of colon lesions that were discovered incidentally by PET imaging and management strategies for gastroenterologists.

We calculated proportions and trends in contributing causes of death among persons with AIDS (PWA) and a history of injection drug use (IDU) in New York City and compared the proportions with those among PWA with a transmission risk of high-risk heterosexual sex (HRH) and men who have sex with men (MSM). We included all 10,575 injection drug user, HRH, and MSM residents aged 13+ years with AIDS reported by September 30, 2006 , who died from 1999 through 2004. Accidental drug overdose was the most frequent contributing cause of death among IDUs (20.5%). Overdose prevention initiatives may greatly and immediately reduce deaths among PWA.

Hide Abstract
We report a high-energy optical parametric oscillator (OPO) synchronously pumped by a 7.19 MHz, Yb:fiber-amplified, picosecond, gain-switched laser diode. The 42-m-long ring cavity maintains a compact design through the use of an intracavity optical fiber. The periodically poled MgO-doped LiNbO(3) OPO provides output pulse energies as high as 0.49 ?J at 1.5 ?m (signal) and 0.19 ?J at 3.6 ?m (idler). Tunability from 1.5 to 1.7 ?m and from 2.9 to 3.6 ?m is demonstrated, and typical M(2) values of 1.5 × 1.3 and 2.8 × 1.9 are measured for the signal and idler, respectively, at high power.

Hide Abstract
We demonstrate a picosecond optical parametric oscillator (OPO) that is synchronously pumped by a fiber-amplified gain-switched laser diode. At 24W of pump power, up to 7.3W at 1.54microm and 3.1W at 3.4microm is obtained in separate output beams. The periodically poled MgO-doped LiNbO(3) OPO operates with ~17ps pulses at a fundamental repetition rate of 114.8MHz but can be switched to higher repetition rates up to ~1GHz. Tunabilty between 1.4microm and 1.7microm (signal) and 2.9microm and 4.4microm (idler) is demonstrated by translating the nonlinear crystal to access different poling-period gratings and typical M(2) values of 1.1 by 1.2 (signal) and 1.6 by 3.2 (idler) are measured at high power for the singly resonant oscillator.

Hide Abstract
We calculated population-based tuberculosis (TB) rates among HIV-infected persons in New York City from 2001 through 2005 using data from the citys TB and HIV/AIDS surveillance registries, and we examined those rates using linear trend tests and incidence rate ratios (IRRs). HIV-infected individuals had 16 times the TB rate of a "non-HIV" population (HIV status negative or unknown; IRR = 16.0; 95% confidence interval = 14.9, 17.2). TB rates declined significantly among the US-born HIV-infected population (P (trend) < .001) but not among the foreign-born HIV-infected population (P (trend) = .355). Such disparities must be addressed if further declines are to be achieved.

Epidemiology and outcomes of Clostridium difficile infections in hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients.
Clin. Infect. Dis.
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Background.?Clostridium difficile is the leading cause of infectious diarrhea among hospitalized patients and is a major concern for patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Risk factors and the natural history of C. difficile infection (CDI) are poorly understood in this population. Methods.?We performed a retrospective nested case-control study to describe the epidemiology, timing, and risk factors for CDI among adult patients who received HSCTs at our center from January 2003 through December 2008. Results.?The overall 1-year incidence of CDI was 9.2% among HSCTs performed (n?=?999). The median time to diagnosis of CDI was short among both autologous and allogeneic HSCT recipients (6.5 days and 33 days, respectively). Risk factors for CDI in allogeneic HSCT recipients included receipt of chemotherapy prior to conditioning for HSCT, broad-spectrum antimicrobial use, and acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD; adjusted odds ratio [AOR], 4.45; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.54-12.84; P?=?.006). There was a strong relationship between early CDI and subsequent development of gastrointestinal tract GVHD in the year following allogeneic HSCT (P?

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
