    Abstract Patients with cardiovascular disease and inflammation have high levels of soluble endoglin in their blood. Mice expressing human soluble endoglin (sEng+) were put under different inflammatory conditions. sEng+ mice has reduced lung and kidney injury after inflammation. There were also lower levels of neutrophils in inflamed lungs and kidneys. The sEng+ mice also had less proinflammatory cytokines, like TNF-alpha, IL1-beta, and IL6 compared to the wildtype mice. Cell adhesion molecules l...

    AbstractIn humans, artificial light can affect sleep. Blue rich light appears white and disrupts sleep, whereas blue reduced light appears amber and may not disrupt sleep. But in animals, we do not have as well of an understanding of the effect of artificial light on sleep. This study measures the brain activity of birds that have their sleep disrupted with white and amber light. In some species of birds, the blue light causes many sleep issues and the amber light did not cause as many or any sl...

    Abstract Despite the limited images of lightning on Jupiter, many photos have been used to determine the properties of lightning on Jupiter. For the first time, very high resolution photos have been taken of lightning, which show a higher flash rate, faster flash duration, and more accurate HWHM values. Same of the lightning has an origin higher than liquid water exists, which causes scientists to reconsider the known mechanism of lightning generation. Aims This study aims to discuss the meanin...

    Abstract Administering a medication through the skin is called transdermal drug delivery (TDD). Currently, transdermal drug delivery is limited because not all drugs can penetrate through the skin. This study adds a pressure treatment to the skin, which increases micropores and gap junctions, while decreasing tight junctions. This means the skin is more permeable to the drug, and drugs like insulin can be given topically after a pressure treatment with an 80% efficient yield. Aims This study ai...

    Abstract This study uses testosterone levels in the blood, prenatal testosterone levels, and testosterone receptor levels to see if testosterone effects love style. They found that low testosterone is associated with Eros, Ludus, Pragma, and Mania love styles. Receptor levels had no correlation with love style. AimsThis study aims to see if testosterone levels have an effect on love styles. IntroductionThere are three primary love styles: Eros, Ludus, and Storge. Eros is passionate and romantic ...

    Aims This study aims to compare ECMO as treatment for COVID-19 induced ARDS versus other methods of treatment. Introduction COVID-19 can cause acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and acute lung failure in severe cases. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a potential for these severe patients. In a study done on MERS patients in 2012, the mortality rate and ICU stay were both smaller for patients treated with ECMO. But with COVID-19, the opposite seems to be true. Results 4 studi...

    Abstract The ability of light to pass through an electrode (optical transparency) and the ability of an electrode to carry a current (electrical conductivity) are necessary for technology like solar powered generators, lights, and touch screens. Usually, the electrodes have to be unfavorably less transparent than the structures they are built on, so the relative transmittance is less than 100%. This study used a dielectric-metal-dielectric-based electrode with a higher transparency than what is...

    Abstract This article uses philosophy to look at euthanasia, health and disease, and psychiatry.

    Abstract 3651 injection drug users (IDUs) were tested for HIV using Serologic Test Algorithm for Recent HIV Seroconversion (STARHS). The HIV incidence in IDUs decreased from 3.55 per 100 people to 0.77 per 100 people from 1990 to 2002. During this time, syringe exchange programs increased in use for 250,000 to 3,000,000 syringes exchanged per year. There is a clear association between syringe exchange programs and HIV prevalence. Aims This study aims to see if syringe exchange programs decreased...
