Krishnan, Pramod Sreedharan, Ganesha UdupaAbstractA miniaturize hydraulic gear pump is used for pressure generation in the fluidic actuators used in some of the medical and bio-medical devices such as blood pressure monitoring devices, artificial heart pump and prosthetic hands. A large variety of sizes of hydraulic pumps is commercially available. Proper design of the pump depends significantly on the application. Various designs of miniature hydraulic pumps h...

We present a 71-year-old Japanese man with metastasis prostate cancer that, during medical castration therapy, had torsades de pointes (TdP) with a QT prolongation and ventricular fibrillation (VF). His QT interval diminished after discontinuing the medical castration, and he developed no further VF recurrences for 15 months. Medical castration is a rare but possible trigger of TdP with QT prolongation and VF. PMID: 30518719 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to examine the relationship between corin expression and circulating brain natriuretic peptide in patients with left ventricular (LV) dysfunction.Circulating levels of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) can be an indicator of LV dysfunction. The 32-amino-acid BNP is cleaved by corin, a cardiac serine protease, from its108-amino-acid pro-brain natriuretic peptide (proBNP) precursor.This study included 25 patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCMP) and LV dysfunction and 44 heart transplant recipients with normal LV function who underwent diagnostic left and right heart catheterization. Blood sample...

TiwariAbstractSynchrotron Radiation based X-ray fluorescence (SRXRF) technique was utilized for the determination of serum elemental profile in breast cancer patients group and healthy subjects group. The SRXRF experiments were performed on microprobe beamline-16, Indus-2 synchrotron radiation source at Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology (RRCAT), Indore, India. The accuracy and reliability of the experimental method were validated by using International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) ...

Publication date: 1 March 2019Source: Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, Volume 175Author(s): Jing Luo, Yang Cheng, Xiao-Yan He, Yi Liu, Na Peng, Zhi-Wei Gong, Kui Wu, Tao ZouAbstractTo realize efficiently cellular uptake and enhance the immunostimulation, thiolated cytosine-phosphate-guanine (CpG) oligodeoxynucleotides (ODNs) were self-assembled on hollow gold nanospheres (HGNs) to form CpG-HGNs. The cellular uptake of CpG-HGNs in immune cells was studied in RAW 264.7 cells. Due to the enhanced delivery efficiency, CpG-HGNs exhibited a higher immune stimulatory activity compared with CpG ODNs, resulting in a dramatic...

Ma, Daniel Baecker, Ronald GustAbstractMetal complexes of substituted N,N′-bis(salicylidene)ethylenediamine ligands are interesting metallo drugs for chemotherapy. Our lead [N,N′-bis(salicylidene)-1,2-phenylenediamine]chloridoiron(III) [Fe(III)salopheneCl] showed excellent in vitro activity against tumor cells sensitive but also resistant to common antitumor drugs. For the analysis of the biological results, information about the stability in various solvents at defined biological pH values is necessary...

Publication date: November 2018Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 25, Issue 6Author(s): Douglas S. Johnson, Klemens B. MeyerThe leaders of 20th century kidney failure treatment took chances; 21st century leaders of integrated kidney care must do the same. Some risks are clinical, some are organizational, and some are financial. Decent and constructive leadership entails humility. A working practitioner is a better leader. Effective leaders empower their employees and collaborators to lead and encourage them to work together. Integrated kidney care leadership supports exchange of ideas within and among organ...
