Vitamin D supplementation and bone health in adults with diabetic nephropathy: The protocol for a randomised controlled trialDownload
Background Suboptimal vitamin D status is highly prevalent in Northern communities, particularly in those patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes and chronic renal disease. Emerging literature suggests that adherence to daily vitamin D supplementation may be an important factor...
This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: The objective of this review is to determine the effectiveness of interventions targeting behaviour and facilitating uptake of new knowledge by healthcare practitioners, patients and their family caregivers...
Unequal recombination and evolution of the mating-type (MAT) loci in the pathogenic fungus Grosmannia clavigera and relatives. G3: Genes, Genomes, GeneticsDownload
Sexual reproduction in fungi is regulated by the mating-type (MAT) locus where recombination is suppressed. We investigated the evolution of MAT loci in eight fungal species belonging to Grosmannia and Ophiostoma (Sordariomycetes, Ascomycota) that include conifer pathogens and beetle symbionts....
Population Structure of Mountain Pine Beetle Symbiont Leptographium longiclavatum and the Implication on the Multipartite Beetle-Fungi RelationshipsDownload
Over 18 million ha of forests have been destroyed in the past decade in Canada by the mountain pine beetle (MPB) and its fungal symbionts. Understanding their population dynamics is critical to improving modeling of beetle epidemics and providing potential clues to predict population expansion....
Response of the Mediterranean Sea thermohaline circulation to observed changes in the winter wind stress field in the period 1980-1993Download
This paper seeks to model changes in deep water production in the eastern Mediterranean induced by changes in winter wind stress. An analysis of individual monthly wind stress fields over the Mediterranean for 1980–1993 from the SOC flux data set shows that an intensification of the winter mean...
The Passion of Oroonoko situatues Aphra Behn's novella Oroonoko (1689) within the context of debates about passive obedience and political obligation during the Revolution of 1688-9. It argues that Oroonoko leverages residual theories and forms of representing human action (baroque allegory,...
Background There is emerging evidence that context is important for successful transfer of research knowledge into health care practice. The Alberta Context Tool (ACT) is a Canadian developed research-based instrument that assesses 10 modifiable concepts of organizational context considered...
This report documents the findings of a mixed-methods study focused on the advanced directives of 182 residents of three LTC facilities in southern Ontario, Canada. Although almost all had a completed advance directive within 3 months of death, most did not have a palliative designation or...
Seven groups of six bulls and seven groups of six steers were transported separately by truck for either 10 min or 2 h. Body weight, rectal temperature, respiratory rate, serum cortisol, and a chute score were recorded before and after trucking. Heart rate was monitored by telemetry in one animal...
