Partnerings and outcries stalk the land. Be afraid, be very afraid …I ’m not sure quite who to blame, but I suspect the culprit is some overpaid, underpowered “high-flyer” in marketing land, but someone must be responsible for the recent outbreak of monstrous couplings afflicting the media.Take the following: “BAE Systems, Leonardo, MBDA and Rolls-Royce are partnering with the Ministry of Defence to create ‘Team Tempest’ to deliver the project.” Fear not, it gets worse:“STT data centres partnering with SGIX to partner connectivity”; “Netflix partnering with...

Publication date: Available online 21 July 2018Source: Microbial PathogenesisAuthor(s): Carolina Salazar, Sergio H. MarshallAbstractInfectious salmon anemia virus (ISAV) is the causative agent of infectious salmon anemia (ISA), a relatively novel disease primarily affecting farmed salmon species, primarily in Salmo salar specimens, causing severe outbreaks in most producer countries. Although ISAV has been extensively studied at the molecular level, not much is known about the host/cell interaction at the small RNA level. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding RNA that regulate mRNA expression at the post-transcriptional...

WalgraeveSummaryMost guidelines recommend replacing endoscopic water bottles at least daily with newly sterilized or high-level disinfected water bottles. All these recommendations, however, are mainly based on expert opinions and outbreak reports. We tested the water quality from water bottles used in a gastrointestinal endoscopy unit where water bottles were used up to five days. The results show that the reuse of water bottles for more than one day is in...

Magnetic particles (MPs) have emerged as promising candidates for developing biosensors for POCT. This review outlines the mechanisms of assaying biomarkers by MPs, and discusses recent advances in MPs-implemented biosensors with enhanced performance and reduced complexit...

Gyselle de Holanda e Silva, Claudia R. Elias MansurAbstractPsoralens are lipophilic molecules used to treat skin diseases such as vitiligo and psoriasis, among them, 8-Methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) is the most used to topical skin application. Topical treatment with psoralens can be limited due to insufficient drug penetration into the skin layers. Nanoemulsions have attracted much attention due to their as dermal delivery systems for lipophilic drugs...

This study aimed to investigate the correlation of serum calprotectin expression with risk and severity of psoriasis, as well as its predictive value for clinical response to tumor necrosis factor inhibitors (TNFi) treatment in psoriasis patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 72 psoriasis patients and 70 health controls (HCs) were enrolled. Blood samples were collected, and serum calprotectin was determined by commercial enzyme-linked immuno sorbent assay (ELISA). All patients were treated by TNFi treatment, and followed up at 6 months, and the last follow-up date was 2016/11. RESULTS: Calprotectin level was elevated in p...

Authors: Wu KK, Armstrong AW Abstract Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease with under-investigated and underappreciated links to psychiatric comorbidities, including anxiety, depression, and suicidality. In this review, we synthesize and discuss the literature investigating the association between psoriasis and three measures of suicidality: suicidal ideation, suicide attempts, and completed suicide. Studies have shown that psoriasis is significantly linked to all three measures of suicidality, but the available data on suicide attempts and completed suicides is limited and less consistent. Studied risk...
