Preeclampsia (PE) is a pregnancy-related disease with potentially severe consequences with respect to foeto-maternal morbidity and mortality. However, the molecular pathogenesis of PE remains largely unknown. Recent reports have shown that microRNAs (miRNAs or miRs) may play important roles in the development of PE. Analysing the miRNAs in sera fro...

The incidence of SMM was typical of a low resource area. There is a need to identify medical co-morbidities and to adopt prophylactic measures and interventions.
Mist chamber experiments were conducted to quantify and model the effects of post-anthesis moisture on Fusarium head blight (FHB) index (IND) and deoxynivalenol (DON). Four mist treatments, one daily and three intermittent, were applied during an 8-day window immediately after anthesis, plus an untreated check. All intermittent mist treatments rece...

Descriptive statistics, Foster, Greer and Thorbecke poverty measures as well as logistic regression model were used as the analytical tools for the study. The res...
Our study demonstrates for the first time that either shorter or longer RTL in peripheral blood leukocytes is associated with increased glioma risk, which warrants further investigation in the future.
Field trials conducted in 2008 and 2009 investigated whether plot size affects incidence of white flower anther injury by tarnished plant bug (Lygus lineolaris (Palisot de Beauvois)) in host plant resistance (HPR) evaluations. The three cotton lines evaluated in the trial included a susceptible frego bract line (RBCDHGPIQH-197) and 2 standards, Sur...
Statistics in medicine
In randomized clinical trials, it is common that patients may stop taking their assigned treatments and then switch to a standard treatment (standard of care available to the patient) but not the treatments under investigation. Although the availability of limited retrieved data on patients who switch to standard treatment, called off-protocol data...

The predictability of the seed germination was investigated on radish (Raphanus sativus L.), Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa ssp. pekinensis), and cabbage (B. oleracea var. capitata L.) using a logistic regression model with amino acid leakage parameters (color intensity and absorbance of seed leachate treated by the ninhydrin reagent) as predictors...
