However, the contributions of the pattern, genetic, and environmental determinants of ambulatory blood pressure in African CKD have not been characterized. Understanding these interactions may help to develop interventions to prevent major cardiovascular events among people with CKD. Objective: The overarching objective of this study is to identify, document, and develop approaches to address related phenomic, genetic, and environmental determinants of ambulatory blood pressure patterns in African CKD and non-CKD hypertensive patients compared with normotensive controls. Methods: This is a longitudinal short-term follow-up study of 200 adult subjects with CKD and 200 each of age-matched hypertensives without CKD and apparently healthy controls. Demographic information, detailed clinical profile, electrocardiography, echocardiography, and 24-hr ambulatory blood pressure measurements will be obtained. Blood samples will be collected to determine albumin-creatinine ratio, fasting plasma glucose, lipid profile, electrolytes, urea and creatinine, C-reactive protein, serum homocysteine, fibroblast growth factor-23, and complete blood count, while 2 mL blood aliquot will be collected in EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) tubes and mixed using an electronic rolling system to prevent blood clots and subsequently used for DNA extraction and genetic analysis. Results: A total of 239 participants have been recruited so far, and it is expected that the recruitment phase will be complete in June 2020. The follow-up phase will continue with data analysis and publications of results. Conclusions: This study will help stratify Nigerian CKD patients phenotypically and genotypically in terms of their blood pressure variations with implications for targeted interventions and timing of medications to improve prognosis.]]> Tue 07 Jul 2020 10:43:51 AEST ]]> Influence of controlled burning on the mobility and temporal variations of potentially toxic metals (PTMs) in the soils of a legacy gold mine site in Central Victoria, Australia Tue 06 Nov 2018 09:38:11 AEDT ]]> Causes, magnitude and implications of Griefing in Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games Tue 03 Jul 2018 15:58:48 AEST ]]> Grey gardens and the problem of objectivity : Notes on the ethics of observational documentary Thu 26 Sep 2019 12:15:18 AEST ]]> Best practices in online therapy Thu 26 Apr 2018 16:05:48 AEST ]]> The poetic experience of the world Thu 26 Apr 2018 15:57:28 AEST ]]> Kiarostami's picture theory : Cinematic skepticism in the Wind Will Carry Us Thu 25 Jul 2019 10:03:49 AEST ]]> Classification systems based on combinatorial semigroups Thu 25 Jul 2019 09:32:11 AEST ]]> The unquantified risk of post-fire metal concentration in soil : A Review Thu 21 Nov 2019 14:39:23 AEDT ]]> Nonsmooth Lyapunov pairs for infinite-dimensional first-order differential inclusions Thu 21 Mar 2019 14:26:14 AEDT ]]> Impact of entry mode on students' approaches to learning: a study of accounting students Thu 21 Mar 2019 13:01:40 AEDT ]]> A computer-mediated framework to facilitate group consensus based on a shared understanding ConSULT Thu 19 Sep 2019 11:49:50 AEST ]]> Out & Online effectiveness of a tailored online multi-symptom mental health and wellbeing program for same-sex attracted young adults: Study protocol for a randomised controlled trial Thu 15 Nov 2018 17:04:15 AEDT ]]> A new technique to measure interfacial tension of transformer oil using UV-Vis spectroscopy Thu 11 Apr 2019 13:46:04 AEST ]]> A new fuzzy logic approach for consistent interpretation of dissolved gas-in-oil analysis Thu 11 Apr 2019 13:15:06 AEST ]]> Understanding power transformer frequency response analysis signatures Thu 11 Apr 2019 13:14:16 AEST ]]> Effect of conducting materials on UV-Vis spectral response characteristics Thu 11 Apr 2019 12:24:36 AEST ]]> Effects of transformer oil properties and contamination on its spectral response Thu 11 Apr 2019 12:05:08 AEST ]]> A review of dissolved gas analysis measurement and interpretation techniques Thu 11 Apr 2019 11:59:32 AEST ]]> Effects of prescribed fire and post-fire rainfall on mercury mobilization and subsequent contamination assessment in a legacy mine site in Victoria, Australia Thu 07 Dec 2017 13:57:55 AEDT ]]> Predicting cardiac autonomic neuropathy category for diabetic data with missing values Thu 05 Dec 2019 11:38:54 AEDT ]]> Variations in accounting students' conceptions of learning Thu 05 Apr 2018 15:39:05 AEST ]]> Investigation of microgrid instability caused by time delay Thu 02 Jul 2020 10:19:49 AEST ]]> Nonsmooth Lyapunov pairs for differential inclusions governed by operators with nonempty interior domain Mon 29 Jan 2018 11:37:14 AEDT ]]> Representing militancy: photographs of the Broken Hill industrial disputes, 1908-20 Mon 27 Feb 2017 15:08:53 AEDT ]]> Michael Fried and philosophy : Modernism, intention, and theatricality Mon 23 Apr 2018 11:40:38 AEST ]]> Classification systems based on combinatorial semigroups Mon 18 Mar 2019 14:48:08 AEDT ]]> Ganking, corpse camping and ninja looting from the perception of the MMORPG community: Acceptable behaviour or unacceptable griefing?

The approach is used in order to identify important properties (e.g. circulation and precipitation) of past climatic states from the models and proxies, which is a primary objective of the Southern Hemisphere Assessment of PalaeoEnvironment (SHAPE) initiative. The AOGCM data are taken from the Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project (PMIP) mid-Holocene (ca. 6000 years before present, 6 ka) and pre-industrial control (ca. 1750 CE, 0 ka) experiments. The synthesis presented here shows that the models and proxies agree on the differences in climate state for 6 ka relative to 0 ka, when they are insolation driven. The largest uncertainty between the models and the proxies occurs over the Indo-Pacific Warm Pool (IPWP). The analysis shows that the lower temperatures in the Pacific at around 6 ka in the models may be the result of an enhancement of an existing systematic error. It is therefore difficult to decipher which one of the proxies and/or the models is correct. This study also shows that a reduction in the Equator-to-pole temperature difference in the Southern Hemisphere causes the mid-latitude westerly wind strength to reduce in the models; however, the simulated rainfall actually increases over the southern temperate zone of Australia as a result of higher convective precipitation. Such a mechanism (increased convection) may be useful for resolving disparities between different regional proxy records and model simulations. Finally, after assessing the available datasets (model and proxy), opportunities for better model-proxy integrated research are discussed. © Author(s) 2017.]]> Mon 07 May 2018 12:26:00 AEST ]]> Assessment of potentially toxic metal contamination in the soils of a legacy mine site in Central Victoria, Australia Zn > As > Cr > Cu > Pb > Ni > Co > Hg > Cd. The status of site was assessed directly by comparing the metal concentrations in the study area with known Australian and Victorian average top soil levels and the health investigation levels set by the National Environmental Protection Measures (NEPM) and the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) of the State of Western Australia. Although, median concentrations of As, Hg, Pb, Cu and Zn exceeded the average Australian and Victorian top soil concentrations, only As and Hg exceeded the ecological investigation levels (EIL) set by DEC and thus these metals are considered as risk to the human and aquatic ecosystems health due to their increase in concentration and toxicity. In an environment of climate fluctuation with increased storm events and forest fires may mobilize these toxic metals contaminants, pose a real threat to the environment and the community. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd]]> Mon 07 May 2018 12:00:12 AEST ]]> Controlled burn and immediate mobilization of potentially toxic elements in soil, from a legacy mine site in Central Victoria, Australia Mon 07 May 2018 11:59:19 AEST ]]> CHROMagar COL-APSE : A selective bacterial culture medium for the isolation and differentiation of colistin-resistant gram-negative pathogens Mon 07 May 2018 11:57:59 AEST ]]> Enhancement of microgrid operation by considering the cascaded impact of communication delay on system stability and power management Mon 06 Jul 2020 17:06:48 AEST ]]> A combined virtual element method and the scaled boundary finite element method for linear elastic fracture mechanics Mon 06 Jul 2020 11:58:50 AEST ]]> Abbas Kiarostami and Film-Philosophy Mon 01 May 2017 11:05:48 AEST ]]> Glory, spectacle and inoperativity : Agamben's praxis of theoria Mon 01 May 2017 11:03:42 AEST ]]> Credit default prediction using a support vector machine and a probabilistic neural network Fri 30 Nov 2018 11:19:14 AEDT ]]> Academics under pressure : Fear and loathing in finnish universities?
