Publication date: Available online 16 August 2018Source: Journal of Food and Drug AnalysisAuthor(s): Geetika Wadhwa, Sunil Kumar, Vineet Mittal, Rekha RaoAbstractBabchi essential oil (BEO) is a valuable essential oil reported to possess a variety of biological activities such as antitumor, anti inflammatory, immunomodulatory, antioxidant, antifungal and antibacterial properties. Due to its anti-microbial properties, this oil possesses an immense potential for the treatment of dermatological disorders. Further, it has minimal tendency to develop resistance, a common issue with most of the antibiotics. However, its highly vi...

This study aimed to evaluate a novel bioactive wound dressing from alginate hydrogel-electrospun silk fibroin (SF) fibers with the ability to deliver amniotic fluid (AF) to the wound site. AF is highly enriched with multiple therapeutic agents that can promote cellular response and wound healing. In this study, electrospun SF fibers were first fabricated by electrospinning method and then combined with the alginate hydrogel (ALG) containing AF. Different dressings were made by changing the alginate to AF ratio. The scanning electron microscopy images revealed that SF fibers were fully covered with alginate hydrogel. In add...

To address this, a surfactant peptide was designed to mimic chemical surfactants with an affinity binding peptide as a hydrophobic tail for the cleanup of biofilm contaminations. The micelle forming and structural changes of the peptide in aqueous solution were systematically investigated. More importantly, the biofilm removal efficiency toward E...

Publication date: 1 December 2018Source: Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical, Volume 275Author(s): Shuang Yan, Jingzhe Xue, Qingsheng WuAbstractA synthesis procedure based on single-capillary electrospinning and hard-template method was provided to synthesize hierarchical α-Fe2O3/SnO2 nanofibers. The samples exhibit unique microstructure where α-Fe2O3 nanoparticles were evenly decorated on three-dimensional SnO2 fibrous scaffold. During preparation, the α-Fe2O3 nanoparticles and SnO2 nanofibers were formed synchronously. Within the composite nanomaterials, the Fe/Sn content ratio can be adjusted by changing...

Authors: Perumal S, Mahmud R, Mohamed N Abstract Pseudomonas aeruginosa is naturally resistant to many classes of antipseudomonal antibiotics due to the species ability to easily acquire resistance. Plant-based antibacterial agent in combination with the existing antibiotic proposes an alternative treatment regimen for the eradication of resistant bacterial infections. The antibacterial effects of the isolated epicatechin 3-gallate compound from Euphorbia hirta in combination with cefepime were investigated in vitro against resistant P. aeruginosa. The fractional inhibitory concentration index of the combination wa...

ConclusionCoronal vertebral dislocation can be easily missed on plain radiograph because many patients with severe scoliotic deformity have thin or sclerotic pedicles. Computed tomography is essential to demonstrate these anomalies. It is important to recognize pedicle aplasia early to prevent rapid progression of deformity and neurologic deficit.

Conclusion: CHI patients with focal pancreatic head lesions are challenging, especially if not surgically amenable. Conservative treatment is preferable, and lanreotide might be an option. The therapeutic impact of lanreotide treatment in patients with the focal forms of CHI should be confirmed in prospective studies with close monitoring of the side effects.Horm Res Paediatr

Finnish orthopedic device manufacturer Bone Index said it has won Medicare and Medicaid coverage for its Bindex point-of-care osteoporosis measurement device for ambulatory surgical and outpatient settings. Bindex measures the cortical bone thickness of the tibia and an algorithm calculates the density index, a parameter that estimates bone mineral density at the hip as measured with a bone-density (DXA) scan. The device detects osteoporosis with 90% sensitivity and specificity and will significantly help physicians with diagnosis, according to the Helsinki-based company. The FDA approved Bindex in January 2017. ...
