Complexity of malaria dynamics under climate change

The transmission of malaria is highly variable and depends on a range of climatic and anthropogenic factors. For more than two decades, there has been a growing concern and hot debate over the impact of global warming

Emanation of tobacco smoke from the skin surfaces of active smokers and non-smokers exposed to second-hand cigarette smoke

Emanation of tobacco smoke from the skin surfaces of active smokers. AoS

Cigarette smoking is a significant risk factor for numerous health consequences and related disorders, and is found to affect non-smokers when they are exposed to second-hand smoke (SHS). Accurate epidemiological assessments of people who currently smoke are

Celiac disease and liver disorders

Gut-liver axis and putative pathogenesis of liver injury in celiac disease. AoS

Immunologically mediated liver diseases belong to the common extraintestinal manifestations of celiac disease. In celiac disease, increased intestinal permeability is thought to be an early feature in the pathogenesis. Dietary gluten drives intestinal inflammation and impairs the

Is retrieval from memory ‘automatic’?

Is retrieval from memory. AoS

Memory for studied material is impaired if attention is divided between learning the material and performance of a concurrent secondary task. We expected to find a similar trade-off when attention was divided during memory retrieval, but surprisingly

Invasive bumblebees become quickly the most important pollinators in their new habitats

Invasive species have been largely described as one of the main threats to global biodiversity. The European bumblebee Bombus terrestris was intentionally introduced in Chile in 1997 to be used as pollinator in greenhouse tomato crops because

Cocaine damages the muscle of the eels

The increasing use of illicit drugs by humans resulted in a gradual contamination of surface waters, since these substances, excreted with the urines, are not always efficiently removed from sewage effluents in sewage treatment plants. Today, the

Astrocytes modulate spinal pain processing by way of cannabinoid induced endocannabinoid release

Astrocytes modulate spinal pain. AoS

Astrocytes were long thought to play only a supporting role in the central nervous system. However, the discovery that Ca2+ transients in astrocytes are coupled to the enhancement or depression of neuronal activity has led to the

Trace gas emissions from husbandry by combining satellite airborne and surface observations

Animal husbandry produces the potent greenhouse gas, methane, which traps heat in the atmosphere (like carbon dioxide). This industry also produces ammonia, which leads to particle (smog) formation that’s dangerous when breathed and affects sunlight and thus

Fear and knowledge of food: the new noumenic approach to consumer perception

The Noumenic Reasoning. AoS

The theme of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is very important for modern consumers, especially when they access novel foods. Future genetic modified organisms are probably to contain plants with improved fighting across plant disease or dryness, crops

23rd World Congress on Pediatrics, Neonatology & Primary Care. Dubai, UAE. November 21-22, 2019

23rd World Congress on Pediatrics, Neonatology & Primary Care. Atlas of Science

ME Conferences is delighted to announce the next event “23rd World Congress on Pediatrics, Neonatology & Primary Care” to be held on November 21-22, 2019 in Dubai, UAE. PEDIATRICS NEONATAL CARE 2019 typically incorporate lectures, paper and

Celiac disease and associated dermatitis

Celiac disease and associated dermatitis. AoS

Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune condition with a worldwide distribution that affects genetically predisposed subjects. It is classified as a permanent intolerance to gluten, and is prompted and maintained by gluten-containing products. The majority of CD

Do the contents of mineral elements in Algerian spices useful for digestive diseases?

Seeds of Coriandrum sativum and Cuminum cyminum. AoS

The foods has become a major concern for producer and consumer, due to growing competition for the highly demanding in food product, in order to fetch high profit. Hence, recently there is growing numbers of researches in

How do spaghetti-like bacteria regulate their size?

How do spaghetti-like bacteria regulate their size. Atlas of Science

Why is your thumb longer than your pinky? Answering this question and, more in general, to understand how tissues/organs regulate their size and proportions, requires to understand how individual cells control their size. Bacteria are probably the

How do people perceive social cohesion, and are their perceptions in line with “reality”?

How do people perceive social cohesion. Atlas of Science

Social relationships are indispensable in our everyday lives. We depend on our friends, family and acquaintances for a great deal of support. We ask them for advice, to help us with practical tasks or to listen to

Ultrasensitive enzyme immunoassay by immune complex transfer method

Ultrasensitive enzyme immunoassay by immune complex transfer method

Many technologies have been developed to improve the sensitivity of immunoassays, such as high affinity antibodies, specific conjugations using the hinge region of Fab’ fragments, highly active enzymes, and digital counting systems. We described a methodology called

Beneficial symbiotic microbes may contribute to plant invasions

Heat map of differentially abundant plant growth-beneficial functions

Plant-microbe interactions determine plant growth and productivity and therefore may mediate both the invasiveness of non-native plant species and the impacts that they have in invaded ecosystems. Previous research has shown that invasive Acacia dealbata populations in

All that powerful materials is not forever

Proof of concept design of transient and flexible HMMs.

Transient technology is foreseeable as a key ingredient for the development of emerging devices, especially for the sake of a sustainable human society. Scientists explore materials, devices and systems that are completely dissolved or selectively disintegrated at

Penicillamine and neonatal neuroprotection

Penicillamine and neonatal neuroprotection

Hyperbilirubinemia. Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia (NHBI) is a common condition in the first week of postnatal life. Although generally harmless, some neonates may develop very high levels of bilirubin (bile pigment). Subtle encephalopathy or bilirubin-induced neurologic dysfunction (BIND) refers

Risk of wildfire at wildland oil and gas facilities

Risk of wildfire at wildland oil & gas facilities. AoS

An ever-increasing exploration and exploitation of oil and gas resources in wildlands along with an anticipated increase in the frequency and severity of wildfires (mostly due to climate change) can increase the risk of fire and explosions

When cell death is better than cell survival: Monocyte response to lysates from different strains of Campylobacter jejuni

Schematic representation of monocyte responses to Campylobacter jejuni lysates. AoS

Campylobacter jejuni, a Gram-negative pathogen, is one of the leading bacterial causes of gastroenteritis world-wide. The invasion and multiplication of C. jejuni is a multistep process that includes interaction with the intestinal epithelial cells (IECs). The only
