Taurine Is a Major Carbon and Energy Source for Marine Prokaryotes in the North Atlantic Ocean off the Iberian PeninsulaAbstractTaurine, an amino acid-like compound, acts as an osmostress protectant in many marine metazoans and algae and is released via various processes into the oceanic dissolved organic matter pool. Taurine transporters are widespread among members of the marine prokaryotic community, tentatively indicating that taurine might be an important substrate for prokaryotes in the ocean....

Exercise Professionals in the Cancer Center: Experiences, Recommendations, and Future ResearchIn 2018, the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia published a landmark position statement calling for exercise to be integrated as standard practice in cancer care. Efforts to implement this directive in the years ahead will come with many practical challenges. We suggest that for the successful integration of exercise therapy to occur, exercise professionals and their services will have to become a respected,...

Blood Coagulation & Fibrinolysis
Thromboelastometry in critically ill patients with disseminated intravascular coagulationCoagulopathy has a high incidence in critically ill patients and is often caused by disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Although the clinical picture of DIC ranges from a prothrombotic state to severe consumption coagulopathy with an increased bleeding tendency, there are no clinical tests that reflect of in-vivo hemostatic profile. Rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM) may be able to indicate whether...

Spasmodic dysphonia as a presenting symptom of spinocerebellar ataxia type 12           AbstractAutosomal dominant spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA) type 12 is a rare SCA characterized by a heterogeneous phenotype. Action tremor of the upper limbs is the most common presenting sign and cerebellar signs can appear subsequently. In many cases, minor signs, like dystonia, can be predominant even at onset. Laryngeal dystonia (spasmodic dysphonia) has been observed only in one case of SCA12 and never reported...

Breathlessness and the brain: the role of expectationPurpose of review Breathlessness debilitates countless people with a wide range of common diseases. For some people, the experience of breathlessness is poorly explained by the findings of medical tests. This disparity complicates diagnostic and treatment options and means that disease-modifying treatments do not always have the expected effect upon symptoms. These observations suggest that brain processing of respiratory perceptions may be somewhat...

Traditionally, the bodily senses of smell, taste, and touch have been designated 'nonaesthetic' senses and their objects considered unsuited to be fashioned into works of fine art. Recent innovations in the art world, however, have introduced scents, tastes, and tactile qualities into gallery exhibits, movements that, at least superficially, appear parallel to philosophical revaluations of the senses. This paper investigates the aesthetic scope of the five external senses, addressing some standard arguments about the limits of the 'lower' senses. I defend the artistic scope of the bodily senses by appealing to cross-modal perception and to the sensuous aspects of appreciative emotional responses to art.
