Trials describing 4-12 week courses of direct-acting anti-viral drugs (DAAs) to treat hepatitis C virus (HCV) transmission from infected donors to uninfected kidney transplant recipients (D+/R- transplants), may be limited in 'real-world' application by costs and delayed access to DAAs. We previously reported HCV transmission of 13% among D+/R- transplants with 2-4 day pangenotypic sofosbuvir/velpatasvir (SOF/VEL) peri-operative prophylaxis, where one patient with HCV transmission was a non-resp...

Abstract null null Pyrolytic carbon (PyC) plays a critical role in many applications for its unique properties. In ceramic composite systems, the elastic properties of PyC at the fiber/matrix interface drive toughening mechanisms, enabling structural performance at increased operating temperatures. PyC expresses a wide range of crystallographic texture depending on fabrication parameters. As a result, modeling and optimization requires direct understanding of the texture-property relationships a...

BACKGROUND Combined heart-liver transplantation (CHLT) is the only curative option for patients with concomitant pathology affecting the heart and liver. In some cases, the native livers of familial amyloidosis (FA) patients may be suitable for domino transplantation into other recipients. METHODS Retrospective analysis (2013 to 2019) of all CHLT at our center was performed. Continuous data were presented as mean with standard deviation and discrete variables as percentages. RESULTS Familial amy...

Tubulocystic renal cell carcinoma (TCC) is a rare and newly recognized variant of renal cell carcinoma, which may mimic benign cystic disease of the kidney. To our knowledge, we present the first reported case of a patient who, despite standard preoperative workup, developed TCC of his native kidney soon after receiving kidney transplantation. He was appropriately treated with native nephrectomy and has had no signs of reoccurrence 7 years postoperatively. Given the significant risk of malignanc...

In this study, a delay differential equation model of gene expression for both retroviruses and normal cell is proposed to study the dynamics of functional gene products. The model is categorised into two sub-models to understand the characteristics of a cell by incorporating time delays in the processes of gene expression. The first model which is for retroviruses, involves time delay in replication, transcription, reverse transcription and translation processes taking place in the cell, while ...

We studied the solid state dewetting of nanocrystalline Au thin films deposited on prismatic single crystalline KCl whiskers. The arrays of KCl whiskers were grown on porous substrates under well-defined humidity and temperature conditions. Single crystalline prismatic KCl whiskers with a very high aspect ratio, [001] axis and {100} side facets were obtained. The whiskers were coated with thin conformal Au films of 20-30 nm in thickness. The annealing of these core-shell whiskers at the temperat...

Alagille syndrome (AGS) is a disorder that affects the liver, heart, kidneys, and skeleton. Development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is rare in AGS. A 41-y-old male with AGS presented with a 6 × 8-cm HCC and underwent transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) followed by right hepatic lobectomy. One year later, he developed HCC recurrence within Milan's criteria and received a deceased donor liver transplant. An interposition donor iliac artery graft from the supraceliac aorta to the donor hep...
