Walnuts and joints

Phosphorus (P) transport from agricultural fields continues to be a focal point for addressing harmful algal blooms and nuisance algae in freshwater systems throughout the world. In humid, poorly drained regions, attention has turned to P delivery through subsurface tile drainage. However, research on the contributions of tile drainage to watershed-scale P losses is limited. The objective of this study was to evaluate long-term P movement through tile drainage and its manifestation at the watershed outlet. Discharge data and associated P concentrations were collected for 8 yr (2005-2012) from six tile drains and from the watershed outlet of a headwater watershed within the Upper Big Walnut Creek watershed in central Ohio...

The Prokaryotic Super Program Advisory Committee met on March 27, 2013 for their annual review the Prokaryotic Super Program at the DOE Joint Genome Institute. As is the case with any site visit or program review, the objective is to evaluate progress in meeting organizational objectives, provide feedback to from the user-community and to assist the JGI in formulating plans for the coming year. The advisors want to commend the JGI for its central role in developing new technologies and capabilities, and for catalyzing the formation of new collaborative user communities...

A large facet joint cyst, the size of a walnut, at L5-S1 resulted in an "emergency" laminectomy at Asheville, North Carolina's Mission Hospitals on this 79-year-old active equestrian and retired healthcare consultant, who more than a half-century earlier was formally trained in hospital administration and medical economics. While as an inpatient, he reflected broadly about today's healthcare expenditures, utilization, and quality, and speculated on possible future remedies.

OBJECTIVE: Animal studies have demonstrated that dietary supplementation with flaxseed oil inhibits colorectal cancer growth. Recent data indicate that walnuts have strong antiproliferative properties against colon cancer cells in vitro but no previous study has assessed the effects of walnuts in vivo or performed a joint evaluation of flaxseed oil and walnuts. The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of dietary walnuts on colorectal cancer in vivo and to comparatively evaluate their efficacy in relation to flaxseed oil...

This report summarizes the proceedings of the 8th meeting of the Genomic Standards Consortium held at the Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute in Walnut Creek, CA, USA on September 9-11, 2009. This three-day workshop marked the maturing of Genomic Standards Consortium from an informal gathering of researchers interested in developing standards in the field of genomic and metagenomics to an established community with a defined governance mechanism, its own open access journal, and a family of established standards for describing genomes, metagenomes and marker studies (i...

The genomic organization of nine strains of Oenococcus oeni belonging to two previously suggested divergent groups was examined by a top-down approach, including analysis of isolated genes and construction of physical and genetic maps. Genomic sequence data from Oenococcus oeni strain PSU-1 were also examined by a bottom-up approach, using sequence data accessible from the U.S. Joint Genome Institute (Walnut Creek, CA, USA), which enabled the confirmation of gene location and the assessment of transcription direction...

The year 2004 was an exciting one for the Phytophthora research community. The United States Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (JGI) completed the draft genome sequence of two Phytophthora species, Phytophthora sojae and Phytophthora ramorum. In August of that year over 50 people gathered at JGI in Walnut Creek, California, for an annotation jamboree and searched for the secrets and surprises that the two genomes have in petto. This culminated in a paper in Science in September of this year describing the highlights of the sequencing project and emphasizing the power of having the genome sequences of two closely related organisms...

Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to significantly reduce the risk for sudden death caused by cardiac arrhythmias and all-cause mortality in patients with known coronary heart disease. Fatty fish, such as salmon and tuna, and fish oil are rich sources of the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid. Flaxseed, canola oil, and walnuts also are good dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids. In addition to being antiarrhythmic, the omega-3 fatty acids are antithrombotic and anti-inflammatory...

HISTORY AND CLINICAL FINDINGS: A 65 year-old man was transferred to our department from a neighbouring hospital with anuria and epistaxis. A few days prior to hospitalization, he had experienced severe muscular and joint pain accompanied by chills. A careful history revealed that, in recent weeks, the patient had frequently collected wild walnuts growing, for the most part, on the banks of a small stream, known to have an infestation of rats. The physical examination revealed pronounced jaundice of the skin and sclerae, and petechia on the lower legs...

Fractures of the carpal bones involve only a single bone or complex bones with or without ligament rupture. However, fractures of the trapezoid are rarely seen. Because the trapezoid is fastened to the trapezium, capitate, and scaphoid by strong ligaments, fracture or dislocation is limited by this rigid fixation. The authors present a single bone fracture of the trapezoid in a 40-year-old man. A tomogram of the carpal bone was useful in diagnosing the trapezoid fracture. The mechanism for development of fracture of the trapezoid alone is unknown...

The joint effects of conjugated estrogen use, age, body mass index, and smoking on plasma lipid and lipoprotein levels were assessed in 585 women who used oral estrogen and 1093 women who did not who participated in the Walnut Creek Contraceptive Drug Study. Whether administered daily or cyclically, conjugated estrogen was associated with reductions in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels and increases in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglyceride levels. The adjusted mean low-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentration was 132 mg/dl for women who used conjugated estrogen in a dose greater than or equal to 1...

Kashin-Beck disease (KBD) is an endemic disease that occurs in certain parts of the People's Republic of China and in Russia. The etiology of the disease is unknown. Selenium deficiency, mycotoxins, and chelating agents such as humic acid and decaying plant material from walnut tree forests have been suggested as causal agents. The primary lesion of this disease is the selective coagulative necrosis of the hypertrophic chondrocytes at the base of the articular and growth plate cartilages. A cross-sectional study was performed in the People's Republic of China in 7 villages, to focus on information about life styles, food consumption, and environmental factors from the village population where the disease is endemic...

A very rare case of epidermoid cyst of the left temporomandibular join (TMJ) after a dermal graft inserted as the interposing material in the surgical correction of TMJ ankylosis is presented. Two years after the surgery, a cystic lesion the size of a walnut was observed in the TMJ region. The cyst contained an odorless, straw-coloured mucoid fluid and a wall lined by stratified squamous epithelium containing orthokeratin. It contained no hair follicles or sweat glands.
