Bioethics Genetic parenthood and causation: An objection to Douglas and Devolder’s modified direct proportionate genetic descent accountAbstract In a recent publication Tom Douglas and Katrien Devolder have proposed a new account of genetic parenthood, building on the work of Heidi Mertes. Douglas and Devolder’s account aims to solve, among other things, the question of who are the genetic parents of an individual created through somatic cell nuclear transfer (i.e. cloning): (a) the nuclear DNA…

International Forum of Allergy & Rhinology Impact of margin status on survival after surgery for sinonasal squamous cell carcinomaBackground Sinonasal squamous cell carcinoma (SNSCC) is the most common malignancy of the paranasal sinuses. Surgery is the mainstay of treatment, yet positive surgical margins (PSM) are common and the prognostic impact on overall survival (OS) is mixed. Given the heterogeneity of impact of PSM on OS within the literature, we hypothesized that extent of tumor extirpation…

American Journal of Clinical Oncology – Oncologic Accuracy of Image-guided Percutaneous Core-Needle Biopsy of Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumors at a High-volume Sarcoma CenterObjectives: Peripheral nerve sheath tumors (PNSTs) are clinically heterogenous, comprising benign (BPNST) and malignant (MPNST) variants. BPNSTs can be managed with nerve-sparing excision or observation. MPNSTs require radical resection and multidisciplinary oncologic management (1, 15). Image-guided core-needle biopsy (IGCNBx)…

GSK-3β Inhibitor Induces Expression of the TLR4/MyD88/NF-κB Signaling Pathway to Protect Against Renal Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury During Rat Kidney TransplantationAbstract Ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) is an inevitable consequence of kidney transplantation (KT). The aim of our study was to investigate the protective effect of a glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK-3β) inhibitor against cold IRI in a rat renal transplantation (RT) model and a rat cold-IRI model through the toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4)/myeloid…

Are emotional states based in the brain? A critique of affective brainocentrism from a physiological perspectiveAbstractWe call affective brainocentrism the tendency to privilege the brain over other parts of the organism when defining or explaining emotions. We distinguish two versions of this tendency. According to brain-sufficient, emotional states are entirely realized by brain processes. According to brain-master, emotional states are realized by both brain and bodily processes, but the latter…

Exoskeletons Improve Locomotion Economy by Reducing Active Muscle VolumeExoskeletons that improve locomotion economy are typically engineered to reduce users’ limb-joint mechanical work or moments. Yet, limb-joint dynamics do not reflect muscle dynamics, which dictate whole-body metabolic energy expenditure. Here, we hypothesize that exoskeletons primarily reduce user metabolic energy expenditure across locomotion conditions by reducing active muscle volume. Corresponding Author: Owen N. Beck, Georgia…
