3.  Major Francis Mortimer Taylor, M.C

Beall, Francis A. (U.S. Army Chemical Corps, Frederick, Md.), Martha J. Taylor, and Curtis B. Thorne. Rapid lethal effect in rats of a third component found upon fractionating the toxin of Bacillus anthracis. J. Bacteriol. 83:1274–1280. 1962.—Rats were found to be more susceptible to the lethal effect of toxin produced by Bacillus anthracis in vitro than were several species considered less resistant to anthrax. Rats were killed much faster by less toxin per gram of body weight than were mice. Guinea pigs survived doses of toxin that killed rats. Intravenous injection of Fischer 344 rats is a rapid test for lethal activity, which facilitates the demonstration of two components, different from protective antigen, in toxin. One of these, a lethal factor, was separated from the other component, which causes cutaneous edema in the guinea pig. The latter component was not necessary for lethal effect. Neither of these factors was active unless combined with protective antigen. Although the guinea pig skin reaction has been used routinely to assay the toxicity of samples, the present results show that this test does not assay the lethal component.

7.  The Salmonella typhimurium AhpC Polypeptide Is Not Essential for Virulence in BALB/c Mice but Is Recognized as an Antigen during Infection 
Infection and Immunity  1998;66(7):3208-3217.
The OxyR regulon is known to mediate protection against oxidizing agents in Salmonella typhimurium. We reported previously that ahp, one of the OxyR-regulated loci, is induced during macrophage interaction (K. P. Francis, P. D. Taylor, C. J. Inchley, and M. P. Gallagher, J. Bacteriol. 179:4046–4048, 1997). We now report on the effects of disrupting ahp or oxyR on virulence in a BALB/c mouse model. Surprisingly, insertion of a Mudlux derivative within ahpC was found to result in attenuation, while irreversible inactivation of the locus through insertion of a cml cassette did not. An SL1344 derivative carrying an oxyR::kan disruption was also found to be as virulent as the parental strain. Moreover, both cell-mediated and humoral responses to AhpC were found to develop during the course of infection, probably through T-helper-cell (type I) activation. These results indicate that, although not essential for virulence, AhpC is expressed by S. typhimurium during infection of BALB/c mice and constitutes a target for the immune system.

13.  Applying what works: a systematic search of the transfer and implementation of promising Indigenous Australian health services and programs 
BMC Public Health  2012;12:600.
The transfer and implementation of acceptable and effective health services, programs and innovations across settings provides an important and potentially cost-effective strategy for reducing Indigenous Australians' high burden of disease. This study reports a systematic review of Indigenous health services, programs and innovations to examine the extent to which studies considered processes of transfer and implementation within and across Indigenous communities and healthcare settings.
Medline, Informit, Infotrac, Blackwells Publishing, Proquest, Taylor and Francis, JStor, and the Indigenous HealthInfoNet were searched using terms: Aborigin* OR Indigen* OR Torres AND health AND service OR program* OR intervention AND Australia to locate publications from 1992–2011. The reference lists of 19 reviews were also checked. Data from peer reviewed journals, reports, and websites were included. The 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) for proportions that referred to and focussed on transfer were calculated as exact binomial confidence intervals. Test comparisons between proportions were calculated using Fisher's exact test with an alpha level of 5%.
Of 1311 publications identified, 119 (9.1%; 95% CI: 7.6% - 10.8%) referred to the transfer and implementation of Indigenous Australian health services or programs, but only 21 studies (1.6%; 95% CI: 1.0% - 2.4%) actually focused on transfer and implementation. Of the 119 transfer studies, 37 (31.1%; 95% CI: 22.9 - 40.2%) evaluated the impact of a service or program, 28 (23.5%; 95% CI: 16.2% - 32.2%) reported only process measures and 54 were descriptive. Of the 37 impact evaluation studies, 28 (75.7%; 95% CI: 58.8% - 88.2%) appeared in peer reviewed journals but none included experimental designs.
While services and programs are being transferred and implemented, few studies focus on the process by which this occurred or the effectiveness of the service or program in the new setting. Findings highlight a need for partnerships between researchers and health services to evaluate the transfer and implementation of Indigenous health services and programs using rigorous designs, and publish such efforts in peer-reviewed journals as a quality assurance mechanism.

15.  Comparative Study on the Wrist Positions During Raise Maneuver and Their Effect on Hand Function in Individuals With Paraplegia 
To determine the appropriate wrist position in individuals with high-level paraplegia during the RAISE (relief of anatomical ischial skin embarrassment) maneuver.
Thirty individuals with high-level paraplegia were randomly selected; 15 individuals performed RAISE maneuver with extended wrist and 15 with neutral wrist. All the subjects who were at least 1 year post spinal cord injury were screened for positive carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms. All the subjects were allowed to participate in a trial of the Jebsen-Taylor Test of Hand Function to familiarize them with the test. Hand function was measured using the Jebsen-Taylor test.
During the RAISE maneuver, individuals with paraplegia weight bearing on their hands with wrists in the neutral position showed better hand function (P < .001) when compared to those weight bearing with their wrists in extension.
Weight bearing with the wrist in neutral position is advisable for paraplegics to prevent the deterioration in hand function due to carpal tunnel syndrome.

21.  Identification of the ahp operon of Salmonella typhimurium as a macrophage-induced locus. 
Journal of Bacteriology  1997;179(12):4046-4048.
Previously, we tagged a macrophage-induced Salmonella typhimurium locus with Mudlux (K. P. Francis and M. P. Gallagher, Infect. Immun. 61:640-649, 1993). The insertion lies within the OxyR-regulated ahpC locus and conveys alkyl peroxide sensitivity. Plasmid-encoded ahp reverses sensitivity but reduces luminescence. This suggests that OxyR is titrated by the multicopy ahp promoter.
