    Background: Few studies have prospectively assessed the impact of breast cancer (BC) on women's sexual lives. Therefore, this study examines the determinants of quality of sexual life (QOSL), sexual functioning (SF), and sexual enjoyment (SE) at 6 and 12 months after surgical treatment. Methods: All participants completed a measure of QOSL (The World Health Organization Quality of Life assessment instrument-100 (WHOQOL-100)-facet Sexual Activity) before diagnosis (Time-1), and 1 (Time-2), 3 (Time-3), 6 (Time-4) and 12 months (Time-5) after surgical treatment. At Time-1, women also completed questionnaires on personality (The State Trait Anxiety Inventory-trait, NEO-FFI), body image and self-esteem (WHOQOL-100), depressive symptoms (Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Scale), and fatigue (Fatigue Assessment Scale). Furthermore, SF and SE (The European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire Breast Cancer module) were measured from Time-2 onwards. Results: At baseline, the analysis included 223 women with early stage BC. Clinical factors did not predict QOSL, SF or SE. In the final analyses, trait anxiety predicted QOSL and SF at Time-4 (p's<0.01). At Time-5, agreeableness predicted QOSL and SE (p's<0.05). Having a partner and age predicted SF, while SE was predicted by educational level (Time-4). In addition, fatigue predicted SE at Time-4 (p<0.05). In general, QOSL diminished across time, while SF improved. However, women with a mastectomy did not differ from women with breast conserving therapy. Conclusions: Mainly personality and psychological factors affect patients' sexuality after surgical treatment. Clinical factors did not predict QOSL, SF or SE. More knowledge in this field will help professionals to identify women who are at risk of experiencing sexual problems and consequently will contribute to provide adequate support.

    AbstractBy analogy with the construction of the Furstenberg boundary, the Stone–Čech boundary of $\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z})$ is a fibered space over products of projective matrices. The proximal behaviour on this space is exploited to show that the preimages of certain sequences have accumulation points that belong to specific regions, defined in terms of flags. We show that the $\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z})\times \textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z})$-quasi-invariant Radon measures supported on these regions are tempered. Thus, every quasi-invariant Radon boundary measure for $\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z})$ is an orthogonal sum of a tempered measure and a measure having matrix coefficients belonging to a certain ideal $c^{\prime}_0 ((\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}) \times \textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}))$, slightly larger than $c_0 ((\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}) \times \textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}))$. Hence, the left–right representation of $C^*(\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}) \times \textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}))$ in the Calkin algebra of $\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z})$ factors through $C^*_{c^{\prime}_0} (\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}) \times \textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}))$ and the centralizer of every infinite subgroup of $\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z})$ is amenable.

    AbstractMultidrug-resistant (MDR) Escherichia coli strains have rapidly increased worldwide, and effective antibiotic therapeutic options are becoming more restricted. As a polymyxin antibiotic, colistin has a long history of usage, and it is used as a final line of treatment for severe infections by Gram-negative bacteria (GNB) with high-level resistance. However, its application has been challenged by the emergence of E. coli colistin resistance. Hence, determining the mechanism that confers colistin resistance is crucial for monitoring and controlling the dissemination of colistin-resistant E. coli strains. This comprehensive review summarizes colistin resistance mechanisms in E. coli strains and concentrates on the history, mode of action, and therapeutic implications of colistin. We have mainly focused on the fundamental mechanisms of colistin resistance that are mediated by chromosomal or plasmid elements and discussed major mutations in the two-component systems (TCSs) genes and plasmids that transmit the mobilized colistin resistance resistant genes in E. coli strains.

    Critical Review of the Literature: A Systematic Review of Assessments of Non-Linguistic Cognitive Functioning in Adults with Post-Stroke Fluent and Non-Fluent Aphasia. Approximately one third of stroke survivors experience difficulties with understanding language (fluent aphasia), or producing language (non-fluent aphasia). Although copious research has been conducted assessing the language abilities of individuals with post-stroke aphasia, fewer studies have been conducted applying neuropsychological tests to assess the non-linguistic neuropsychological functioning of individuals with post-stroke aphasia. This review aimed to learn more about measures which may be used in neurorehabilitation to assess memory, executive functioning, attention, visuospatial skills, social cognition, and intellectual functioning of stroke survivors with fluent or non-fluent aphasia. The systematic review resulted in 17 quantitative papers published since 2013 involving the non-linguistic cognitive assessment of individuals with fluent or non-fluent aphasia after stroke across eight countries. The use of assessments by clinicians in multidisciplinary neurorehabilitation services has been considered. Findings have implications for how neurorehabilitation clinicians assess non-linguistic cognitive functioning in post-stroke aphasia. Service Improvement Project: Improving the Rehabilitation of Individuals Admitted to the National Spinal Injuries Centre with Traumatic Brain Injury. Study Design: Mixed methods service improvement project. Retrospective analysis of clinical documentation and qualitative focus group with clinicians. Objectives: Although traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spinal cord injury (SCI) often cooccur, many barriers have been found to identifying TBI in SCI rehabilitation and adapting treatment accordingly. This study aimed to compare the number of TBIs detected at the UK National Spinal Injury Centre to figures found in previous research, and understand the barriers to adapting SCI rehabilitation in the presence of TBI. Setting: United Kingdom inpatient spinal cord injury rehabilitation unit. Methods: This mixed methods study assessed the documentation at each stage of 88 patients’ treatment where a TBI could be detected and used to inform rehabilitation, and subsequently, a focus group was conducted with staff to explore the barriers to detecting TBI and adapting SCI rehabilitation. Results: Results suggested that data related to TBI were inconsistently recorded, the number of TBIs at the Centre was lower than previous research, and several barriers were interpreted from the focus group. Conclusions: TBI in SCI populations may be an invisible unmet need. Several barriers may exist which prevent clinicians from detecting TBI in this population and adapting rehabilitation accordingly. Findings have implications for rehabilitation for individuals with TBI and SCI admitted to the service. Theory-Driven Research Project: Exploring the Role of Social Cognition in Couples’ Relationship Satisfaction and Continuity After Acquired Brain Injury. Although an acquired brain injury (ABI) may bring some couples closer together, for other couples, an ABI may pose challenges to their relationship. Recent research has suggested that social cognition is the strongest predictor of continuity in couples’ relationships after one partner experiences an ABI. The current study aimed to examine the role of social cognition in relationship satisfaction and continuity after ABI. Sixty-four participants who were in a relationship with someone who had experienced an ABI completed measures of their partner’s social cognition, their relationship satisfaction before and after injury, and a measure of relational continuity after ABI. It was found that the participants’ relationship satisfaction significantly decreased after injury, and that the average social cognition score for the group reporting a high change in relationship satisfaction was significantly poorer than the group reporting a low change in relationship satisfaction. Regression analysis suggested that overall social cognition could predict the continuity in relationships after injury, although no single content area on a measure of social cognition could predict relational continuity. Findings have implications for the impact of ABI on couples’ relationships and support to provide to couples following ABI.

    BACKGROUND Driveline infections (DLIs) at the exit site are frequent in patients with left ventricular assist devices (LVADs). The dynamics from colonization to infection are yet to be investigated. We combined systematic swabbing at the driveline exit site and genomic analyses to study the dynamics of bacterial pathogens and get insights into DLIs pathogenesis. METHODS A prospective, observational, single-centre cohort study at the University Hospital of Bern, Switzerland was performed. Patients with LVAD were systematically swabbed at the driveline exit site between June 2019 and December 2021, irrespective of signs and symptoms of DLI. Bacterial isolates were identified and a subset was whole-genome sequenced. RESULTS Fifty-three patients were screened, of which 45 (84.9%) were included in the final population. Bacterial colonization at the driveline exit site without manifestation of DLI was frequent and observed in 17 patients (37.8%). Twenty-two patients (48.9%) developed at least one DLI episode over the study period. Incidence of DLIs reached 2.3 cases per 1,000 LVAD days. The majority of the organisms cultivated from exit sites were Staphylococcus species. Genome analysis revealed that bacteria persisted at the driveline exit site over time. In four patients, transition from colonization to clinical DLI was observed. CONCLUSION Our study is the first to address bacterial colonization in the LVAD-DLI setting. We observed that bacterial colonization at the driveline exit site was a frequent phenomenon, and in a few cases it preceded clinically relevant infections. We also provided acquisition of hospital-acquired multidrug-resistant bacteria and the transmission of pathogens between patients.

    Authors: Halil İbrahim Kahve;

    The isolation of endogenous yeast strains from traditionally fermented food products to use as functional starter cultures has become more popular for improved food safety, quality, and beneficial health effects. In this study, 107 Pichia kudriavzevii strains were isolated from sourdough, shalgam, tarhana, artisanal Tulum cheese, and yogurt. The strains were identified by DNA fingerprinting using iPBS-PCR method before technological and probiotic characterization. The multivariate statistical approach revealed that five strains were most promising in terms of technological characterization, including different harsh growth conditions. These strains were also examined in terms of probiotic properties with a commercial S. cerevisiae var boulardii MYA-796 strain. The multivariate statistical analyses indicated that P. kudriavzevii 5S5 were most promising in in vitro probiotic properties such as surviving in human GI conditions, adhering to intestinal cell lines, and exhibiting high hydrophobicity. Therefore, it seems to be a great starter candidate for the production of functional fermented food products.

    Background: Few studies have prospectively assessed the impact of breast cancer (BC) on women's sexual lives. Therefore, this study examines the determinants of quality of sexual life (QOSL), sexual functioning (SF), and sexual enjoyment (SE) at 6 and 12 months after surgical treatment. Methods: All participants completed a measure of QOSL (The World Health Organization Quality of Life assessment instrument-100 (WHOQOL-100)-facet Sexual Activity) before diagnosis (Time-1), and 1 (Time-2), 3 (Time-3), 6 (Time-4) and 12 months (Time-5) after surgical treatment. At Time-1, women also completed questionnaires on personality (The State Trait Anxiety Inventory-trait, NEO-FFI), body image and self-esteem (WHOQOL-100), depressive symptoms (Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Scale), and fatigue (Fatigue Assessment Scale). Furthermore, SF and SE (The European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire Breast Cancer module) were measured from Time-2 onwards. Results: At baseline, the analysis included 223 women with early stage BC. Clinical factors did not predict QOSL, SF or SE. In the final analyses, trait anxiety predicted QOSL and SF at Time-4 (p's<0.01). At Time-5, agreeableness predicted QOSL and SE (p's<0.05). Having a partner and age predicted SF, while SE was predicted by educational level (Time-4). In addition, fatigue predicted SE at Time-4 (p<0.05). In general, QOSL diminished across time, while SF improved. However, women with a mastectomy did not differ from women with breast conserving therapy. Conclusions: Mainly personality and psychological factors affect patients' sexuality after surgical treatment. Clinical factors did not predict QOSL, SF or SE. More knowledge in this field will help professionals to identify women who are at risk of experiencing sexual problems and consequently will contribute to provide adequate support.

    AbstractBy analogy with the construction of the Furstenberg boundary, the Stone–Čech boundary of $\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z})$ is a fibered space over products of projective matrices. The proximal behaviour on this space is exploited to show that the preimages of certain sequences have accumulation points that belong to specific regions, defined in terms of flags. We show that the $\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z})\times \textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z})$-quasi-invariant Radon measures supported on these regions are tempered. Thus, every quasi-invariant Radon boundary measure for $\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z})$ is an orthogonal sum of a tempered measure and a measure having matrix coefficients belonging to a certain ideal $c^{\prime}_0 ((\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}) \times \textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}))$, slightly larger than $c_0 ((\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}) \times \textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}))$. Hence, the left–right representation of $C^*(\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}) \times \textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}))$ in the Calkin algebra of $\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z})$ factors through $C^*_{c^{\prime}_0} (\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}) \times \textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z}))$ and the centralizer of every infinite subgroup of $\textrm {SL}(3,\mathbb {Z})$ is amenable.

    AbstractMultidrug-resistant (MDR) Escherichia coli strains have rapidly increased worldwide, and effective antibiotic therapeutic options are becoming more restricted. As a polymyxin antibiotic, colistin has a long history of usage, and it is used as a final line of treatment for severe infections by Gram-negative bacteria (GNB) with high-level resistance. However, its application has been challenged by the emergence of E. coli colistin resistance. Hence, determining the mechanism that confers colistin resistance is crucial for monitoring and controlling the dissemination of colistin-resistant E. coli strains. This comprehensive review summarizes colistin resistance mechanisms in E. coli strains and concentrates on the history, mode of action, and therapeutic implications of colistin. We have mainly focused on the fundamental mechanisms of colistin resistance that are mediated by chromosomal or plasmid elements and discussed major mutations in the two-component systems (TCSs) genes and plasmids that transmit the mobilized colistin resistance resistant genes in E. coli strains.

    Critical Review of the Literature: A Systematic Review of Assessments of Non-Linguistic Cognitive Functioning in Adults with Post-Stroke Fluent and Non-Fluent Aphasia. Approximately one third of stroke survivors experience difficulties with understanding language (fluent aphasia), or producing language (non-fluent aphasia). Although copious research has been conducted assessing the language abilities of individuals with post-stroke aphasia, fewer studies have been conducted applying neuropsychological tests to assess the non-linguistic neuropsychological functioning of individuals with post-stroke aphasia. This review aimed to learn more about measures which may be used in neurorehabilitation to assess memory, executive functioning, attention, visuospatial skills, social cognition, and intellectual functioning of stroke survivors with fluent or non-fluent aphasia. The systematic review resulted in 17 quantitative papers published since 2013 involving the non-linguistic cognitive assessment of individuals with fluent or non-fluent aphasia after stroke across eight countries. The use of assessments by clinicians in multidisciplinary neurorehabilitation services has been considered. Findings have implications for how neurorehabilitation clinicians assess non-linguistic cognitive functioning in post-stroke aphasia. Service Improvement Project: Improving the Rehabilitation of Individuals Admitted to the National Spinal Injuries Centre with Traumatic Brain Injury. Study Design: Mixed methods service improvement project. Retrospective analysis of clinical documentation and qualitative focus group with clinicians. Objectives: Although traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spinal cord injury (SCI) often cooccur, many barriers have been found to identifying TBI in SCI rehabilitation and adapting treatment accordingly. This study aimed to compare the number of TBIs detected at the UK National Spinal Injury Centre to figures found in previous research, and understand the barriers to adapting SCI rehabilitation in the presence of TBI. Setting: United Kingdom inpatient spinal cord injury rehabilitation unit. Methods: This mixed methods study assessed the documentation at each stage of 88 patients’ treatment where a TBI could be detected and used to inform rehabilitation, and subsequently, a focus group was conducted with staff to explore the barriers to detecting TBI and adapting SCI rehabilitation. Results: Results suggested that data related to TBI were inconsistently recorded, the number of TBIs at the Centre was lower than previous research, and several barriers were interpreted from the focus group. Conclusions: TBI in SCI populations may be an invisible unmet need. Several barriers may exist which prevent clinicians from detecting TBI in this population and adapting rehabilitation accordingly. Findings have implications for rehabilitation for individuals with TBI and SCI admitted to the service. Theory-Driven Research Project: Exploring the Role of Social Cognition in Couples’ Relationship Satisfaction and Continuity After Acquired Brain Injury. Although an acquired brain injury (ABI) may bring some couples closer together, for other couples, an ABI may pose challenges to their relationship. Recent research has suggested that social cognition is the strongest predictor of continuity in couples’ relationships after one partner experiences an ABI. The current study aimed to examine the role of social cognition in relationship satisfaction and continuity after ABI. Sixty-four participants who were in a relationship with someone who had experienced an ABI completed measures of their partner’s social cognition, their relationship satisfaction before and after injury, and a measure of relational continuity after ABI. It was found that the participants’ relationship satisfaction significantly decreased after injury, and that the average social cognition score for the group reporting a high change in relationship satisfaction was significantly poorer than the group reporting a low change in relationship satisfaction. Regression analysis suggested that overall social cognition could predict the continuity in relationships after injury, although no single content area on a measure of social cognition could predict relational continuity. Findings have implications for the impact of ABI on couples’ relationships and support to provide to couples following ABI.
