World Journal of Neuroscience (WJNS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/wjns.2015.51004
Abstract: Aim:To explore what is the relationship of the types of post-stroke aphasia with sex, age andstroke types.Methods:Retrospective analysis was administrated on data of 421 patients with acutestroke. Western battery aphasia was used to measure aphasiac type and aphasia quotient (AQ)score. The patients were divided into three age groups: young, middle-aged and elderly. The stroketypes were classified into cerebral infraction (CI) and intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Results: All subjects were right-handed, which males and females accounted for 69.60% and 30.40%, respectively. There were 116 cases of Broca’s aphasia (85 males), 35 cases of Wernicke’s aphasia (20 males),15 cases of conductive aphasia (10 males), 63 cases of transcortical motor aphasia (50 males), 11 cases of transcortical sensory aphasia (8 males), 27 cases of transcortical combined aphasia (13 males), 73 cases of anomic aphasia (47 males) and 81 cases of global aphasia (60 males). Male patients (69.60%) have a significantly higher morbidity of aphasia than that of females (30.40%) after stroke (χ2

Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.68086
Abstract: This research investigated the relationship between John Holland’s personality types (realist, investigative, conventional) with burnout among female and male teachers at first duration of high school (guidance school) and second duration of high school (secondary school). For this purpose, 327 persons were selected by multistage cluster sampling method. In order to gather information, Meshach burnout questionnaire and John Holland’s job-personality questionnaire were used. Descriptive and inferential statistic methods were utilized to analyze the data. It was worth mentioning that Pearson correlation coefficient r, linear regression and the analysis of multivariable variance (MANOVA) were used to measure the relationship between predictor and criterion variables. Obtained results by the investigation of relations showed that there was a reversed relationship between personality types and the degree of burnout, with correlation coefficient of r = (–2.24), respectively, in the level of (p = 0/01). The relationship between realist, investigative and conventional personality types with burnout which was calculated by (r = –1.15, r = –1.84, r = –2.19) respectively, was significant and reversed. It was necessary to say that among demographic variables (gender, age, precedent, education and teacher’s marital status) there was just a significant relationship between gender, personality type and the degree of burnout in the level of (p = 0/05). It showed that from the view point of gender there was a significant difference between burnout. The degree of burnout in male teachers was more than female, and there were no significant differences in other demographic variables. The most important application of this study is that everybody will be employed according to his/her job-personality type to avoid any physical and mental damages arising from working.

Advances in Linear Algebra & Matrix Theory (ALAMT) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/alamt.2018.81005
Abstract: We will extend some of the Kantorovich-Type inequalities for positive finite dimensional matrices to infinite dimensional normal operators by applying The Two-Nonzero Component Lemma and converting them to an An-tieigenvalue-Type problem.
Factors Associated with Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes in Infants in Kuwait  [PDF]
Nedaa A. Al-Khamees
Health (Health) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/health.2018.1011113
Abstract: Purpose: The purpose of the study is to investigate the factors associated with diabetes and its influence on the prevalence of diabetes in Kuwait. Methods: A questionnaire was designed to explore the relationships between various factors and diabetes in children. The survey included 300 mothers of children up to five years of age in Kuwait and the results were subjected to a two-way contingency table analysis. Results: Variables showing at least a medium effect and a linear relationship are herein reported. Increasing maternal age was found to be related to the increasing prevalence of type 1 diabetes. An association between a higher prevalence of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in the mother and the child was found. Risk of having a child with diabetes increases with the maternal age. The consumption of fried food or fast food by a child was associated with a higher prevalence of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Sugar consumption, both by the mother during pregnancy and by the child, was associated with a higher prevalence of type 2 diabetes. Heavy consumption of nuts by the child was associated with a higher prevalence of type 2. Conclusion: Genetics and environmental factors including diet may play important roles in the causation of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in Kuwait.

A novel mutation in NF1 gene in a Chinese patient with Legius syndrome like café au lait spots  [PDF]
Dongdong Zheng, Xiaohong Duan
Case Reports in Clinical Medicine (CRCM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/crcm.2013.22038
Abstract:

Neurofibromatosis type I (NF1) (OMIM, 162200) and Legius syndrome (OMIM, 611431) both have multiple café au lait spots. It is a challenge to differentiate the two diseases. Here we report a Legius syndrome-like patient who finally was identified as NF1 with a novel mutation in NF1 exon1 (c.55G > T). The mutation caused a substitution of a glutamic acid (GAG) with a terminator codon (TAG). For those patients with only multiple café au lait macules, axillary and inguinal freckling, but without any other clinical signs in NF1 and Legius syndrome, a gene testing is necessary to give a final diagnose. We suggested to use “Neurofibromatosis type 1like syndrome” to describe those patients just like our patient reported here.

Morbid Obesity in Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 and Exenatide  [PDF]
María Angeles Iba?ez Gil, Alfonso López Ruiz, Alicia Hernández Torres, Ana Belén Hernández Cascales, Pedro Pujante Alarcon, María Dolores Hellín Gil
Pharmacology & Pharmacy (PP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/pp.2014.52020
Abstract:

Worldwide, the prevalence of diabetes and obesity is increasing in recent years in developed countries. The first step of treatment is changes in lifestyle and in case of failure to initiate drug treatment. In our case, the patient with morbid obesity and glucose intolerance to metformin therapy was initiated without achieving weight loss and loss of glycemic control after 6 months of treatment. It was decided to add exenatide as an alternative to bariatric surgery. At the end of the study (12 months), it showed a weight reduction of 20.8% (Table 1), 20.83% BMI, glycosylated hemoglobin decrease of 2 points, and improved the lipid profile. So exenatide may be an acceptable option in the use of patient profile. It would be necessary to seek a new alternative treatment with minimal side effects and less healthcare costs.

Phylogenetic Analysis and Taste Cell Expression of Calpain 9 in Catfish (Ictalurus punctatus)  [PDF]
Tetsuya Ookura, Eiki Koyama, Anne Hansen, John H. Teeter, Yukio Kawamura, Joseph G. Brand
Natural Science (NS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ns.2015.73016
Abstract: The calpains, calcium-activated neutral proteases, play important roles in calcium-regulated intra-cellular signal transduction cascades. Here we report the isolation and initial characterization of a cDNA encoding a calpain 9, digestive tract specific calpain, from catfish taste epithelium. This calpain 9 (Ip-CAPN9a) shares 61% identity with human calpain 9. Phylogenetic analysis provides evidence that catfish calpain 9 and the related enzymes from Oncorhynchus mykiss, Danio rerio, Xenopus laevis, Mus musculus, Rattus norvegicus and Homo sapiens make up a distinct clade within the tissue-specific calpain family. Northern blot analysis reveals that Ip-CAPN9a is predominantly expressed in barbell and digestive tract, but not expressed in brain. An antibody against the N-terminal segment of Ip-CAPN9a recognizes cells within the taste buds in catfish barbells.
Gold in the Jinya Carlin-type Deposit: Characterization and Implications  [PDF]
Youqin (Joe) Zhou, Kuiren Wang
Journal of Minerals and Materials Characterization and Engineering (JMMCE) , 2003, DOI: 10.4236/jmmce.2003.22008
Abstract: Gold in the Jinya Carlin-type deposit, assaying 6.27 g/t Au, was characterized using a comprehensive mineralogical and analytical approach which includes optical microscopy and several advanced microbeam techniques. Each gold carrier was quantified independently. Gold in the Jinya ore occurred as microscopic gold and submicroscopic gold. Submicroscopic gold, primarily in the form of solid solution gold, was carried mainly by arsenopyrite (accounting for 77% of the gold assay), and to a lesser extent (~16%) in arsenic-rich fine-grained and microcrystalline pyrite. Native gold accounted for 6% of the gold assay. Gold carried in cinnabar and rock minerals is insignificant. Gold deportment shows that (1) arsenopyritization and pyritization can be used as indication of mineralization for the further exploration in the Jinya district, and (2) gold in sulfides is not amenable to direct cyanidation, but can be recovered by flotation of a sulfide concentrate and then cyanidation with a pretreatment process.
