Publication date: October 2018Source: Biocatalysis and Agricultural Biotechnology, Volume 16Author(s): Marília Crivelari da Cunha, Laura Carvalho Silva, Hélia Harumi Sato, Ruann Janser Soares de CastroAbstractMicrobial L-asparaginase have been used as a therapeutic agent in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia and Hodgkin's disease. In addition to clinical use, L-asparaginases have been used in foods to reduce the formation of acrylamide. L- asparaginase production is carried out mainly by submerged fermentation (SmF). However, solid-state fermentation (SSF) offers potential benefits compared with su...

One of the specific flavors in aged awamori kusu is vanillin, which is derived from ferulic acid (FA) in rice grains. FA is released from the cell wall material in the rice grain by ferulic acid esterase produced by A. luchuensis. Through...
This study was designed to compare the recovery rate of otomycosis using two therapeutic methods; topical betadine (Povidone-iodine) and clotrimazole.MethodsIn this single-blind clinical trial, 204 patients with otomycosis were selected using a non-probability convenient sampling method and were randomly assigned to two treatment groups of topical betadine and clotrimazole (102 patients in each group). Response to treatment was assessed at 4, 10 and 20 days after treatment. Data were analyzed using the independent t-test, Chi-Square and Fisher exact test in SPSS v.18 software, at a significance level of p
