Biflavonoids from the bark roots of Poincianella pyramidalis (Fabaceae)

Publication date: June 2016 Source:Phytochemistry Letters, Volume 16 Author(s): José Cândido S. de Oliveira, Juceni P. David, Jorge M. David Poincianella pyramidalis (Fabaceae) is an endemic tree that grows in semiarid regions of Brazil. Phytochemical investigations on the bark roots of this plant led to the isolation of four new biflavonoids named (+)-5-hydroxy-7,4′-dimethoxyflavone-3α-2′′′-hydroxy-4′′′,4′′-dimethoxydihydrochalcone (1), (+)-5,7-dihydroxy-4′-methoxyflavone-3α-2′′′-hydroxy-4′′′,4′′-dimethoxydihydrochalcone (2), (−)-7-hydroxy-4′-methoxyflavone-3α-2′′′,4′′′-dihydroxy-4′′-methoxydihydrochalcone (3), (−)-7,4′-dihydroxy-flavanone-3,8-5′′,6′′,4′′-trihydroxy-flavone (4), and the previously identified compound 4,2′,4′,4′′,2′′′,4′′′-hexahydroxy-3,5′′′-bichalcone (rhuschalcone VI, 5). Their structures were determined by HR-ESI-MS and extensive analyses of NMR spectroscopic data. Graphical abstract

Conclusions: Because serum serology can be negative at presentation, lumbar puncture is a valuable tool when diagnosing LB among children with facial palsy. Pleocytosis and increased protein and CXCL13 values in the CSF suggest LB as the cause of facial palsy.

ConclusionsOur results define immune responses to O-specific polysaccharide in immunologically naive humans with cholera, find that they are largely IgM and IgA, may be blunted in blood group O individuals, and differ in a number of significant ways from responses in previously humans. These differences may explain in part varying degrees of protective efficacy afforded by cholera vaccination between these two populations. Trial registration numberClinicalTrials.gov NCT01895855.

e Zhang Foot and mouth disease (FMD) endemicity in Ethiopia’s livestock remains an ongoing cause for economic concern, with new topotypes still arising even in previously unaffected areas. FMD outbreaks occur every year almost throughout the country. Understanding the outbreak dynamics, endemic serotypes, and lineage profiles of FMD in this country is very critical in designing control and prevention programs. For this, detailed information on outbreak dynamics in Ethiopia needs to be understood clearly. In this article, therefore, we review the spatial and temporal patterns and dynamics of FMD outbreaks from...

ConclusionsWith 40% of infected persons having turned first to folk medicine before consulting a medical doctor, this explorative study points out that plant-based medicines play an important role in local dynamics of health care. It highlights the need for primary assessment of potential risk of use related to the herbal recipes, and for reporting it to the concerned population. This first ethnobotanical study on trypanosomiasis in endemic provinces of Angola provides information on 30 plants, of which some had been identified as promising for further pharmacological research. Our results provide a first step towards the ...

This study investigated fluoride concentrations in 10 districts of Tianjin, China, to illustrate their spatial distribution characteristics and potential human health risks. The results showed fluoride concentration of 0.01-6.30 mg L-1 with a mean value of 0.99 mg L-1, and 78.82% of water fluoride reaches the standard for drinking water (1.5 mg L-1). Higher fluoride levels were recorded in deep well pumps supply zones, and more potential changes in fluoride occurred was positively correlated with pH in groundwater. Mean value of fluoride in drinking water in 10 districts followed the order of WQ > BC &...

Authors: Bleibtreu A, Bertine M, Bertin C, Houhou-Fidouh N, Visseaux B Abstract Since the first case of human infection by the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in Saudi Arabia in June 2012, more than 2260 cases of confirmed MERS-CoV infection and 803 related deaths have been reported since the 16th of October 2018. The vast majority of these cases (71%) were reported in Saudi Arabia but the epidemic has now spread to 27 countries and has not ceased 6 years later, unlike SARS-CoV that disappeared a little less than 2 years after emerging. Due to the high fatality rate ...

Publication date: June 2020Source: Nonlinear Analysis: Real World Applications, Volume 53Author(s): Yu Yang, Lan Zou, Jinling Zhou, Cheng-Hsiung HsuAbstractThis paper is concerned with the dynamics of a waterborne pathogen model with spatial heterogeneity and general incidence rate. We first establish the well-posedness of this model. Then we clarify the relationship between the local basic reproduction number R̃ and the basic reproduction number R0. It could be seen that R0 plays an important role in determining the global dynamics of this model. In fact, we show that the disease-free equilibrium is globally asymptotical...

Abstract SUMMARYSurveillance studies have shown that OXA-48-like carbapenemases are the most common carbapenemases in Enterobacterales in certain regions of the world and are being introduced on a regular basis into regions of nonendemicity, where they are responsible for nosocomial outbreaks. OXA-48, OXA-181, OXA-232, OXA-204, OXA-162, and OXA-244, in that order, are the most common enzymes identified among the OXA-48-like carbapenemase group. OXA-48 is associated with different Tn1999 variants on IncL plasmids and is endemic in North Africa and the Middle East. OXA-162 and OXA-244 are derivatives of OXA-48 and a...

Morbidity and mortality from opioid use disorder (OUD) remain at epidemic levels in the United States. In the 12-month period ending July 2018, approximately 46,000 people died from opioid overdose in the United States, approximately five deaths every hour.[1] The harms of OUD extend beyond the well-publicized overdose deaths. Aside from the tragic toll on families, patients experience social and medical sequelae of drug use. Among the medical sequelae is drug use-associated infective endocarditis, whose incidence has risen dramatically where opioid use disorder (OUD) is endemic; at least one state experienced a tenfold in...

Nascimento, Marina Monjardim, Roberta Paresque, Neusa Hamada, Eduardo DominguezAbstractA new genus and species is described based on nymphs and adults collected exclusively at the Chapada Diamantina National Park, in Brazil. The generic category of this new taxon was tested by reanalyzing a morphological dataset used to access the phylogenetic relationships of species of Ulmeritus and Ulmeritoides and by the use of molecular analysis, using two different genes. Both analysis corrobora...
