(Natural News) Many environmental factors cause or accelerate the spoilage of food, but among them, microbial growth remains the primary focus of many studies. Microorganisms like bacteria can cause sickness and food poisoning when ingested, and while artificial preservatives can delay their growth, these chemicals can also cause harm to human health. In a recent study...

Abstract The ability of the selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs) to capture mercury (Hg) is a subject of interest as this concept can be applied to reduce mercury poisoning cases to certain extent. In this work, SeNPs were fabricated on a paper and used as sorbent for capturing mercury vapor. The formation of the stable HgSe on the paper sorbent after the sequestration was visible to the naked eye for mercury concentration of higher than 200 μg L-1, corresponding with the discoloration of the paper sorbent from dark orange to gray color. The gray color was more intense with increasing Hg concentrations from 200 t...

Doesn’t it seem like Botox is showing up everywhere as a medical treatment? Botox is a brand of botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT), a protein substance originally derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In its original form it was the toxin responsible for botulism, the paralyzing illness often caused by eating contaminated food. BoNT is now used to treat a number of medical conditions including muscle spasms, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, and some eye muscle conditions. However, one of its most common uses is in the preventive treatment of chronic migraine. Chronic migraine, defined as headache occurrin...

Publication date: Available online 16 September 2019Source: Advances in Space ResearchAuthor(s): Pooja Jindal, Pradeep Kumar Thapliyal, Munn Vinayak Shukla, Som Kumar Sharma, Debashis MitraAbstractThe present work has been carried to analyze the changes in trend of temperature, water vapor and ozone profiles at different atmospheric layers, total column integrated methane (TCH4) and total column integrated carbon-monoxide (TCO) over the Indian region. The atmospheric column was divided into few atmospheric layers: surface-850 hPa, 850-500 hPa, 500-100 hPa, 100-50 hPa and 50-1 hPa. Monthly averages of these parameters were ...

Conclusion: The present study exhibited favorable antagonistic effects of S. cerevisiae S3, as a probiotic yeast, on MSSA and MRSA strains. Based on the findings of this study, the compounds produced by this yeast can be used to control S. aureus infections; however, further similar studies should be conducted to confirm the findings of the present study.

Contributors : Piyush More ; Leszek WojnowskiSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensRecently approved cancer drugs remain out-of-reach to most patients due to prohibitive costs and only few produce clinically meaningful benefits. An untapped alternative is to enhance the efficacy and safety of existing cancer treatments. We hypothesized that the response to topoisomerase II poisons, the most successful group of cancer drugs, can be improved by considering treatment-associated transcript levels, taken as surrogates for protein expression. To this end, we analyzed transcriptome...

Conclusion: Air pollution associated with the presence of the CPC is an important environmental factor contributing to the development of PH in the nearby population. As the first study showing this association in Brazil, research should be continued to better understand the mechanisms and to find ways to compensate for or remedy to avoid health impacts in future populations.

This study aims to explore the success rate of smoking cessation in the elderly and the factors that predict the success of smoking cessation. We collected data from smokers ≥60 years who visited a medical center in Taiwan during 2017. All patients were prescribed either varenicline or nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) for smoking cessation. The participants were asked about their smoking status after treatment. In total, 129 participants were enrolled. The three- or six-month point abstinence rate was 48.1%. No significant difference was found among baseline characteristics (including age, gender, underlying disea...

ConclusionIn conclusion, we observed that APACHE II score>25, GCS 3, and dysfunction of more than 3 organ systems on admission to emergency department was associated with a significant mortality risk in patients treated in the ICU for CO poisoning. Moreover, HBO therapy could reduce the risk of mortality in patients with CO poisoning in ICU.
