The objectives of this study were to test the efficacy of producing lovastatin in rice straw treated withAspergillus terreus in larger laboratory scale following the procedure previously reported and to investigate the effectiveness of the treated rice straw containing lovastatin on methane mitigation in goats. The concentration of lovastatin in the treated rice straw was 0.69  ± 0.05 g/kg dry matter (DM) rice straw. Our results showed that supplementation of lovastatin at 4.14 mg/kg BW reduced methane production by 32% while improving the DM digestibility by 13% (P

BLACK mould and damp is a common problem during this time of year and respiratory problems, allergies, and asthma can be a result of infestations. Inhaling tiny bits of mould can also cause a condition called aspergillosis. The NHS explains how best to get rid of mould and damp problems.

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewThis review summarizes research on the use of sheep and goats as large animal models of human osteoporosis for preclinical and translational studies.Recent FindingsThe most frequent osteoporotic sheep model used is the ovariectomized sheep with 12  months post-operatively or more and the combined treatment of ovariectomized sheep associated to calcium/vitamin D-deficient diet and glucocorticoid applications for 6 months, but other methods are also described, like pinealectomy or hypothalamic-pituitary disconnection in ovariectomized sheep. The goat model for osteoporosis research has ...

Authors: Thacher TD, Pludowski P, Shaw NJ, Mughal MZ, Munns CF, Högler W Abstract Immigrant and refugee populations bring public health challenges to host nations. In the current global refugee crisis, children are the most vulnerable subpopulation. Diseases that were considered rare in the host nation may be highly prevalent among immigrant children. The prevalence of nutritional rickets is increasing in high-income countries, largely driven by an influx of immigrant populations. Nutritional rickets is a bone disease in early childhood resulting in bone pain, delayed motor development, and bending of the bone...

In this study published in July 2017, researchers looked at the vitamin D levels and cognitive function in patients who experienced psychosis. They found an association between low levels of vitamin D and decreased processing speed and verbal fluency. The authors suggested the next step should be randomized controlled trials of vitamin D supplementation in those with psychosis and vitamin D deficiency. Another study, published in Psychiatry Research in August 2017, looked at whether vitamin B12, homocysteine folic acid, and vitamin D might be connected to childhood obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Fifty-two children an...

Authors: Fiscaletti M, Stewart P, Munns CF Abstract Vitamin D and calcium are important nutrients for skeletal growth and bone health. Children and pregnant women are particularly vulnerable to 25-hydroxy vitamin D deficiency (VDD). VDD, with or without dietary calcium deficiency, can lead to nutritional rickets (NR), osteomalacia, and disturbances in calcium homeostasis. Multiple studies have linked VDD to adverse health outcomes in both children and pregnant women that extend beyond bone health. VDD remains an important global public health concern, and an important differentiation must be made between the impact...

Diby Paul The present study was aimed at using cellulolytic bacterium Enhydrobacter and fungi Aspergillus sp. for preparing compost from rice husk (RH). Further, the prepared compost was tested for their effect on blackgram growth promotion along with different levels of recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) in black soil (typic Haplustalf) and red soil (typic Rhodustalf) soil. The results revealed that, inoculation with lignocellulolytic fungus (LCF) Aspergillus sp. @ 2% was considered as the most efficient method of composting within a short period. Characterization of composted rice husk (CRH) was examined through sc...

AbstractA new type of magnetic bioadsorbent (CDAB) was synthesized by reaction of amidoxime modified calix[6]arene derivative with theAspergillus niger-Fe3O4 bio-nanocomposite, the bioadsorbent have been well characterized with FT-IR, SEM-EDS, XPS and VSM. The effects of various experimental parameters include pH, contact time, initial uranium(VI) concentration, adsorbent dosage and temperature on the bioadsorption of uranium(VI) were investigated in detail. Adsorption experimental results showed the adsorption process of CDAB was pseudo-second order kinetic model and Langmuir adsorption isotherm model. The maximum adsorpt...
