    Description: [EN] Since October 2015 the government of the federal republic of Germany is developing a national dialogue on the future development of the National Strategy for Sustainability made in 2016. The development is marked by the Agenda 2030 which was adopted by the United Nations for Sustainable Development in 2015. Therefore, the major global challenges must be addressed by all means of sustainable development, trying to reduce hunger, poverty, lack of education as well as environmental and climate issues. All these objectives are addressed to all member states of the European Union, which raises the question: How can the new global sustainability goals be implemented at the national level? What has to happen in Germany to further promote sustainable development? The article focuses on the objective of sustainable urban development in Germany, exemplifying the case oft he oldtown of Berlin-Spandau, a istrict of the City of Berlin. Firstly, the priority objectives will be demonstrated, later on implementation strategies will be explained. The practical application will be demonstrated after a short, theoretical introduction. Thie project itself was realized under the supervision of the author at the University of Hamburg and demonstrates strategies of greening that not only improve the climate of the city but also reinforce social cohesion through its planning measures.

    Description: Nursing staff are often involved in counseling patients with regard to health behavior. Although care promoting healthy lifestyle choices is included in the curriculum of nursing students in Germany, several studies of nursing students have reported a high prevalence of unhealthy behavior. This paper focuses on the behavior of female nursing students with regard to body mass index (BMI), physical activity, and cigarette and alcohol consumption. It describes trends through the comparison of results from 2008 and 2013. Data was collected in two waves at a regional medical training college. First, 301 nursing students were asked to fill out a 12 page questionnaire on health behavior in 2008. The questioning was repeated in 2013 with 316 participating nursing students using the previous questionnaire. 259 female nursing students completed the questionnaire in 2013. 31.6% of them were either overweight or obese, 28.5% exercised less than once a week, 42.9% smoked between 10 and 20 cigarettes a day and 72.6% drank alcohol, wherefrom 19.7% consumed alcohol in risky quantities. In comparison to the data of 266 female nursing students from 2008, there were significant differences in the BMI and alcohol consumption: The percentage of overweight and obese students and the percentage of alcohol consumers at risk increased significantly. Health behavior of female nursing students is often inadequate especially in regard to weight and cigarette and alcohol consumption. Strategies are required to promote healthy lifestyle choices.

    Description: Hemotrophic mycoplasmas (HM) are small, cell wall-less bacteria and infections are known for a wide range of animals. One possible indication of equine HM infection was given in 1978, when a ‘haemobartonellosis’ outbreak was diagnosed in Nigerian horses by microscopy. However the first molecular proof of HM in horses was not reported until 2010, when a fragment of about 900 bp of the 16S rRNA of the equine HM was obtained. This sequence was used for the development of a SYBR green I real-time PCR assay specific for equine HM. The lower detection limit of the PCR was ten 16S rDNA copy numbers per ml of blood. The newly designed assay was successfully applied for the detection and quantification of HM in horses in Germany. A high sample prevalence of 26.5% (95% CI: 18.8–35.5%) was found (31 out of 117 horses). The mean bacterial load was 1.10 × 10 16S rDNA copy number/ml blood (range: minimum 1.05 × 10 , maximum 1.27 × 10 ). Equine HM were also detected by microscopy (Giemsa and acridine orange stained blood smears), but results do not correlate very well with PCR results, as microscopy proved rather unspecific and not sensitive. In horses younger than one year, a significant correlation between PCR positive status and anemia was found. No correlation was found in PCR-positive animals older than one year. Therefore we assume that HM infection has a higher clinical relevance in young animals.

    Description: OBJECTIVE: The aims were to study the acromion parameters in the population and to assess the extremity or sex variation in the acromion morphology. METHODS: The lateral acromion angle (LAA) and the acromion index (AI) were assessed in a computed tomographic scan database of 250 individuals in the age group of 20 to 49 years. For the analysis of LAA and AI, 286 and 234 shoulders were available, respectively. RESULTS: The LAA was 73.6 ± 6.6 degrees; 73.7 ± 6.9 and 72.5 ± 6.1 degrees for the right and left shoulder, respectively. The AI was 0.755 ± 0.12; 0.82 ± 0.12 and 0.69 ± 0.12 for the left and the right shoulder, respectively. The AI of the right shoulder was significantly different between the 2 sexes (P = 0.04). The difference in the AI and the LAA of the right and left shoulders was significant (P 〈 0.0001, P = 0.04). CONCLUSIONS: The morphology of the acromion differs between the right and the left shoulders as well as between sexes.

    Description: Aims In infective endocarditis (IE), a severe inflammatory disease of the endocardium with an unchanged incidence and mortality rate over the past decades, only 1% of the cases have been described as polymicrobial infections based on microbiological approaches. The aim of this study was to identify potential biodiversity of bacterial species from infected native and prosthetic valves. Furthermore, we compared the ultrastructural micro-environments to detect the localization and distribution patterns of pathogens in IE. Material and methods Using next-generation sequencing (NGS) of 16S rDNA, which allows analysis of the entire bacterial community within a single sample, we investigated the biodiversity of infectious bacterial species from resected native and prosthetic valves in a clinical cohort of 8 IE patients. Furthermore, we investigated the ultrastructural infected valve micro-environment by focused ion beam scanning electron microscopy (FIB-SEM). Results Biodiversity was detected in 7 of 8 resected heart valves. This comprised 13 bacterial genera and 16 species. In addition to 11 pathogens already described as being IE related, 5 bacterial species were identified as having a novel association. In contrast, valve and blood culture-based diagnosis revealed only 4 species from 3 bacterial genera and did not show any relevant antibiotic resistance. The antibiotics chosen on this basis for treatment, however, did not cover the bacterial spectra identified by our amplicon sequencing analysis in 4 of 8 cases. In addition to intramural distribution patterns of infective bacteria, intracellular localization with evidence of bacterial immune escape mechanisms was identified. Conclusion The high frequency of polymicrobial infections, pathogen diversity, and intracellular persistence of common IE-causing bacteria may provide clues to help explain the persistent and devastating mortality rate observed for IE. Improved bacterial diagnosis by 16S rDNA NGS that increases the ability to tailor antibiotic therapy may result in improved outcomes.

    Description: Elevated visceral adipose tissue-derived serpin (vaspin) serum concentrations are associated with impaired insulin sensitivity, but increase unexpectedly after long-term physical training. We therefore investigated the effect of an acute exercise bout and the effects of vitamin supplementation on chronic exercise effect and on serum vaspin concentrations. We measured serum vaspin and thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS) concentrations in 80 individuals before and after a 1-hour acute exercise bout and independently in 40 healthy young men who were randomly assigned to either antioxidant (vitamin C (1,000 mg/day) and vitamin E (400 IU/day)) or to no supplementation after a standardized 4-week physical training program as a post hoc analysis. Serum vaspin concentrations significantly decreased after acute physical exercise as well as after 4 weeks of training in individuals without antioxidants. Changes in vaspin serum concentration correlate with increased TBARS serum concentrations both in response to a 1-hour exercise bout (r = –0.42, p 〈 0.01) and to the 4-week training (r = –0.31, p 〈 0.05). Interestingly, supplementation with antioxidants rather increased circulating vaspin levels in response to 4 weeks of exercise. In conclusion, vaspin serum concentrations are decreased by exercise-induced oxidative stress, but not by exercise-associated improvement in insulin sensitivity.

    Description: Psychosocial care for cancer patients has gained importance in recent years and psycho-oncological counselling centers (POCC's) offer a wide range of services in this area. We investigated the scope and content of a POCC at a university medical center. The presented data were collected at the POCC at University Medical Center Leipzig in 2014. In total, 469 cancer patients participated (mean age 60 years, 67% female, 36% breast cancer). Psychosocial distress and psychopathology were assessed with the PHQ-9, GAD-7 and the NCCN Distress Thermometer. Descriptive statistics were analyzed. 1 in 4 patients (24%) reported at least moderate levels of depressive symptoms. Patients with hematological malignancies and head and neck tumors showed stronger depressive symptoms. 15% of patients suffered from elevated levels of anxiety. The average number of reported problems on the Distress Thermometer and Problem List was 14 out of 39. Physical and psychosocial problems were most prevalent (e. g. fatigue, problems getting around, anxiety). Supportive care needs were less common than reported problems. We found that a close network of POCS, oncological inpatient and outpatient care can help direct patients toward psychosocial care at an early stage. Psychosocial screening enables psycho-oncologists to identify problem areas and offer tailored counselling services.

    Description: (1) Background: The high-grade neuroepithelial tumor of the central nervous system with BCOR alteration (HGNET-BCOR) is a highly malignant tumor. Preclinical models and molecular targets are urgently required for this cancer. Previous data suggest a potential role of insulin-like growth factor (IGF) signaling in HGNET-BCOR. (2) Methods: The primary HGNET-BCOR cells PhKh1 were characterized by western blot, copy number variation, and methylation analysis and by electron microscopy. The expression of IGF2 and IGF1R was assessed by qRT-PCR. The effect of chemotherapeutics and IGF1R inhibitors on PhKh1 proliferation was tested. The phosphorylation of IGF1R and downstream molecules was assessed by western blot. (3) Results: Phkh1 cells showed a DNA methylation profile compatible with the DNA methylation class "HGNET-BCOR" and morphologic features of cellular cannibalism. IGF2 and IGF1R were highly expressed by three HGNET-BCOR tumor samples and PhKh1 cells. PhKh1 cells were particularly sensitive to vincristine, vinblastine, actinomycin D (IC50 〈 10 nM for all drugs), and ceritinib (IC50 = 310 nM). Ceritinib was able to abrogate the proliferation of PhKh1 cells and blocked the phosphorylation of IGF1R and AKT. (4) Conclusion: IGF1R is as an attractive target for the development of new therapy protocols for HGNET-BCOR patients, which may include ceritinib and vinblastine.
