A Blood Pressure You Can Believe In.

The Relationship Between Bloodstream Infections and Hemodialysis Catheters in Hospital-Based Hemodialysis Units.

As the number of patients requiring hemodialysis increases, so does the number of patients who require complex care and whose care requires a hospital hemodialysis unit setting rather than a freestanding unit. As a result, hospital units may have a higher ratio of complex patients, and some quality incentive program (QIP) measures may need modification to be meaningful in these settings.

Osteoporosis in Patients with CKD: A Diagnostic Dilemma.

Osteoporosis in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a complex problem, with diagnostic criteria and treatment plans often debated. The debate creates a practice dilemma for clinicians faced with an aging population and an increasing incidence of fragility fractures. This article discusses the dilemma as seen from the perspective of the nephrology clinician on differentiating osteoporosis from other bone mineral disorders in patients with progressive CKD in order to provide the most efficacious and safe care.

Surrogacy families headed by gay men: relationships with surrogates and egg donors, fathers' decisions over disclosure and children's views on their surrogacy origins.

How do gay father families experience surrogacy in terms of their relationships with surrogates and egg donors, fathers' disclosure decisions and children's views on their surrogacy origins?

The charming physician (El médico encantador): neurological conditions in a short story by Silvina Ocampo.

The Argentinian author Silvina Ocampo (1903-1993) left us a vast body of works which are considered outstanding in many ways. In 1960, she published a short story, entitled "El médico encantador" (The Charming Physician), in the renowned literary magazine Sur. The central character of this piece is a family doctor named Albino Morgan, who had a secret truth: in any house he visited, all variety of disease also entered. He brought with him the viruses he disseminated. The narrator of this short story-one of his patients-describes four of Morgan's diseases. These imaginary neurological conditions allowed Ocampo to explore improbable situations in everyday life.

Survey on open peer review: Attitudes and experience amongst editors, authors and reviewers.

Open peer review (OPR) is a cornerstone of the emergent Open Science agenda. Yet to date no large-scale survey of attitudes towards OPR amongst academic editors, authors, reviewers and publishers has been undertaken. This paper presents the findings of an online survey, conducted for the OpenAIRE2020 project during September and October 2016, that sought to bridge this information gap in order to aid the development of appropriate OPR approaches by providing evidence about attitudes towards and levels of experience with OPR. The results of this cross-disciplinary survey, which received 3,062 full responses, show the majority (60.3%) of respondents to be believe that OPR as a general concept should be mainstream scholarly practice (although attitudes to individual traits varied, and open identities peer review was not generally favoured). Respondents were also in favour of other areas of Open Science, like Open Access (88.2%) and Open Data (80.3%). Among respondents we observed high levels of experience with OPR, with three out of four (76.2%) reporting having taken part in an OPR process as author, reviewer or editor. There were also high levels of support for most of the traits of OPR, particularly open interaction, open reports and final-version commenting. Respondents were against opening reviewer identities to authors, however, with more than half believing it would make peer review worse. Overall satisfaction with the peer review system used by scholarly journals seems to strongly vary across disciplines. Taken together, these findings are very encouraging for OPR's prospects for moving mainstream but indicate that due care must be taken to avoid a "one-size fits all" solution and to tailor such systems to differing (especially disciplinary) contexts. OPR is an evolving phenomenon and hence future studies are to be encouraged, especially to further explore differences between disciplines and monitor the evolution of attitudes.

In Silico Screening and In Vitro Activity Measurement of Javamide Analogues as Potential p38 MAPK Inhibitors.

p38 Mitogen-activated protein kinase (p38 MAPK) is a protein kinase critically involved in the progress of inflammation/stress-associated diseases. Our data suggested that javamide analogues may contain strong anti-inflammation activities, but there is little information about their effects on p38 MAPK. Therefore, in this paper, the effects of thirty javamide analogues on p38 MAPK were investigated using in silico screening and in vitro p38 MAPK assay methods. The javamide analogues were synthesized and their chemical structures were confirmed using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopic methods. Then, the javamide analogues were screened using an in silico modeling program. The screened analogues demonstrated a wide range of binding energy (ΔE; -20 to -39) and several analogues with ΔE; -34 to -39 showed strong binding affinity to p38 MAPK. In vitro p38 MAPK assay, the kinase was significantly inhibited by the analogues with great binding energy (ΔE; -34 to -39) and in silico scores (Avg. score; -27.5 to -29.3). Furthermore, the comparative analysis of both assays showed a positive correlation between the in silico scores and p38 MAPK inhibition. In fact, the javamide analogues with top five in silico scores (Avg. score; -27.5 to -29.3) were found to inhibit p38 MAPK by 27-31% (p < 0.05) better than those with less scores (ΔE < -27.0). Especially, javamide-II-O-ethyl ester with relatively high in silico score (Avg. score; -29.2) inhibited p38 MAPK (IC50 = 9.9 μM) a little better than its methyl ester with best in silico score (Avg. score; -29.3). To support the ability to inhibit p38 MAPK, the treatment of javamide-II-ethyl and -methyl esters could suppress the production of IL-8 and MCP-1 protein significantly by 22-73% (p < 0.05) in the differentiated THP-1 cells, and the inhibition was slightly stronger by the ethyl ester than the methyl ester. Altogether, this study suggests that javamide-II-O-ethyl ester may be a most potent p38 MAPK inhibitor among the tested compounds and the combining in silico and in vitro assay approach may be a useful and efficient solution as a functional screening approach in searching new lead compounds for targeted molecules.

Philosophical Issues and Nursing Science.

The author of this article introduces a new column that will explore philosophical issues of concern to nurse scientists. In this initial column, I review the general terrain of philosophy in nursing science and explore some philosophical issues relevant to theory development. One conclusion is that inquiry into philosophical issues may help expand our repertoire of conceptual tools useful in building scientific knowledge and facilitating theoretical progress.

Persistent Pain in Older Adults: Roy's Adaptation Model.

Persistent pain in older adults is difficult to assess and therefore address consistently. The experience of pain is individual, and therefore a comprehensive way to assess pain is required. Roy's adaptation model offers a systematic way of evaluating pain in the older adult. In this column, the author shares some statistics about persistent pain and a case study using Roy's model as a system for assessment.

With A Kiss: Betrayal.

The author in this article explores theoretical perspectives on the humanbecoming ethical tenet of betrayal. Perspectives on betrayal include betrayal as a breach of promise, a betrayal continuum, betrayal as incidental and intentional, betrayal as moral injury, betrayal trauma, and the humanbecoming perspective of betrayal linked to feeling disappointed.

Will Nursing Continue as the Most Trusted Profession? An Ethical Overview.

Trust-mistrust is a paradoxical rhythm found in all healthcare disciplines. The discipline of nursing has traditionally been regarded as the most trusted. What are the ethical obligations for professional nurses in establishing community relationships of trust according to societal needs and desires? Specifically, the author seeks to conceptualize and discern potential implications for fiduciary trust and the future of nursing as a healthcare discipline.

Integrative Literature Review on Shame.

Shame is a universal living experience that is just beginning to be explored within the discipline of nursing. Development of a broad understanding of shame is needed to aid nurse researchers in clarifying this phenomenon from a nursing perspective. Pursuant to this goal, the author in this article reviews the extant literature on shame from the disciplines of nursing, psychology, sociology, philosophy, and theology. Three themes that emerged from the scholarly literature were (a) shame propels miring in paralysis, (b) shame captures the illusionary seen-unseen, and

Betrayal in Teaching-Learning: A Sword in the Heart.

In this article, the human experience of betrayal is explored within teaching-learning, where trust might be expected and the notion of betrayal might seem counterintuitive. To gain insight into this experience, the unique perspectives of an undergraduate student, a graduate student, and a new faculty are considered through the stories they shared with the author about betrayal in teaching-learning. The humanbecoming paradigm provided a unique perspective to view these stories and explore the unlimited possibilities emerging when human dignity and freedom to choose are honored.


This paper is predominantly a clinical presentation that describes the transmigration of one patient's transference to another, with the analyst functioning as a sort of transponder. It involves an apparently accidental episode in which there was an unconscious intersection between two patients. The author's aim is to show how transference from one case may affect transference in another, a phenomenon the author calls transference before transference. The author believes that this idea may serve as a tool for understanding the unconscious work that takes place in the clinical situation. In a clinical example, the analyst finds himself caught up in an enactment involving two patients in which he becomes the medium of what happens in session.


Beginning with the quintessentially psychoanalytic tales of Freud, the case history has held a privileged position in the history and practice of psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysts grow up with, grow into, and grow out of these narratives as clinical practitioners. Alongside the representational aspects of these case histories, there is a rhetorical or persuasive force that significantly influences us. The author contends that the theory of narrative and rhetoric can inform the how, the why, and the "so what?" of our relationship to these stories of psychoanalysis.


This paper addresses the radical departure of late Bion's and Winnicott's clinical ideas and practices from traditional psychoanalytic work, introducing a revolutionary change in clinical psychoanalysis. The profound significance and implications of their thinking are explored, and in particular Bion's conception of transformation in O and Winnicott's clinical-technical revision of analytic work, with its emphasis on regression in the treatment of more disturbed patients. The author specifically connects the unknown and unknowable emotional reality-O with unthinkable breakdown (Winnicott) and catastrophe (Bion). The author suggests that the revolutionary approach introduced by the clinical thinking of late Bion and Winnicott be termed quantum psychoanalysis. She thinks that this approach can coexist with classical psychoanalysis in the same way that classical physics coexists with quantum physics.


Michel de M'Uzan describes a way to think about identity in which two distinct sources of our sense of identity must be considered. His innovation is the concept of the vital-identital, which he suggests is equally foundational with the sense of identity derived from the early human environment. The term endogenous identity is used to unify under one heading the ideas that de M'Uzan employs to build his concept of vital-identital. The author summarizes de M'Uzan's earlier work, elaborates on his more recent ideas, and illustrates the use of de M'Uzan's ideas with a cultural and a clinical example.

Letter to the author from Editor-in-Chief seeking clarifications.

Engaging indigenous Maori and inward migrating Asian professionals into a Pakeha (White European)-dominated Balint community in New Zealand.

This inquiry began with two questions: How can the established predominately Pakeha/Caucasian (White European) Balint community in New Zealand more successfully engage both indigenous populations of both Maori and Pacifica origin into Balint work? And what is the existing Balint community doing to address the lack of Asian members of the Balint community in New Zealand, at a time when Asian health professionals are being recruited into the health sector at an increasingly high rate in comparison to White European entrants to the profession? These questions, and their preliminary answers presented here, invite the reader to reflect on both the challenges and opportunities in reaching out to groups different from our own. The author hopes readers may begin to see what can be done to allow new entrants to benefit from all that participation in Balint work offers while not losing sight of the uniqueness which each person can bring. It is hoped that sharing such questions and their subsequent explorations will help Balint leaders feel more confident in reaching out to a wider ethic and cultural mix within their local populations and encouraging them to enter the exciting world of the Balint group.

Author Correction: Recovery of nearly 8,000 metagenome-assembled genomes substantially expands the tree of life.

In the original version of this Article, the authors stated that the archaeal phylum Parvarchaeota was previously represented by only two single-cell genomes (ARMAN-4_'5-way FS' and ARMAN-5_'5-way FS'). However, these are in fact unpublished, low-quality metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) obtained from Richmond Mine, California. In addition, the authors overlooked two higher-quality published Parvarchaeota MAGs from the same habitat, ARMAN-4 (ADCE00000000) and ARMAN-5 (ADHF00000000) (B. J. Baker et al., Proc. Natl Acad. Sci. USA 107, 8806-8811; 2010). The ARMAN-4 and ARMAN-5 MAGs are estimated to be 68.0% and 76.7% complete with 3.3% and 5.6% contamination, respectively, based on the archaeal-specific marker sets of CheckM. The 11 Parvarchaeota genomes identified in our study were obtained from different Richmond Mine metagenomes, but are highly similar to the ARMAN-4 (ANI of ~99.7%) and ARMAN-5 (ANI of ~99.6%) MAGs. The highest-quality uncultivated bacteria and archaea (UBA) MAGs with similarity to ARMAN-4 and ARMAN-5 are 82.5% and 83.3% complete with 0.9% and 1.9% contamination, respectively. The Parvarchaeota represents only 0.23% of the archaeal genome tree and addition of the ARMAN-4 and ARMAN-5 MAGs do not change the conclusions of this Article, but do impact the phylogenetic gain for this phylum. This has now been corrected in all versions of the Article. An updated version of Fig. 5 has also been used to replace the previous version, with the row for Parvarchaeota removed, and Supplementary Table 15 and Supplementary Table 17 have both been replaced to reflect the availability of the two additional Parvarchaeota genomes. In addition, the Methods incorrectly stated that all metagenomes identified as being from studies where MAGs had previously been recovered were excluded from consideration. Metagenomes from studies where MAGs had previously been recovered were retained if the UBA MAGs provided appreciable improvements in genome quality or phylogenetic diversity. All versions of the Article have been updated to indicate the retention of such metagenomes.
