The identification of a causal-connection scale motivates us to propose a new covariant bound on entropy within a generic spacelike region. This "causal entropy bound," scaling as sqrt[EV], and thus lying around the geometric mean of Bekenstein's S/ER and holographic S/A bounds, is checked in various "critical" situations. In the ...

Principlism has been advocated as an approach to resolving concrete cases and issues in bioethics, but critics have pointed out that a main problem for principlism is its lack of a method for assigning priorities to conflicting ethical principles. A version of principlism referred to as 'specified principlism' has been ...

Basal encephaloceles are the least common form of encephalocele. Due to the critical position of the bony defect, visual and endocrinological abnormalities are frequently associated with basal encephaloceles. There is significant confusion in the classification of basal encephaloceles, particularly among trans-sphenoidal, sphenoethmoidal and intrasphenoidal subtypes. Two cases of basal encephaloceles ...

New catalytic functions of human carbonyl- and aldose reductase in tetrahydrobiopterin biosynthesis are proposed. 6-Pyruvoyl tetrahydropterin, an intermediate in the biosynthesis of tetrahydrobiopterin, was converted to 6-lactoyl tetrahydropterin and 1'-hydroxy-2'-oxopropyl tetrahydropterin by carbonyl reductase under anaerobic condition. 1'-Hydroxy-2'-oxopropyl tetrahydropterin was subsequently metabolized to tetrahydrobiopterin by aldose reductase. Based on these ...
