Authors: Dandachi D, Wilson Dib R, Fernández-Cruz A, Jiang Y, Chaftari AM, Hachem R, Raad I Abstract BACKGROUND: The characteristics and management of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) in patients with hematologic malignancies are well known, but IPA in patients with solid tumors is not well described. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all Aspergillus-positive cultures at a tertiary cancer center during 2004-2017. We identified 101 patients with IPA and solid tumors. We analyzed the association between clinical features and treatment and 12-week mortality and response to antifungal therapy. R...

The biomass CQDs were prepared by mixed acid oxidation method with biomass materials such as pods, tobacco leaves and cysteine as carbon sources. Properties of biomass carbon quantum dots were characterized, including micromorphology, the functional group composition, photoluminescence properties and fluorescence labeling ability in HepG2 cells. And the cyt...

Herein, a multicolor visual telomerase detection method with high sensitivity was developed based on the etching of hexadecyl trimethyl ammonium bromide -stablized Au nanorods (Au NRs) by the oxidation state 3,3′,5,5′-tetramethylbenzidine sulfate (TMB2+). In order to meet the demand of bare-eye inspection, an enzyme-free...

Antònia BusquetsAbstractThe very slow progress in the therapeutic efficacy of the treatment of severe diseases has suggested the use of a growing need for a multidisciplinary approach to the delivery of therapeutics to targets tissues. There has been increasing effort in the design of stimuli-responsive nanomaterials that they will be developed into effective drug delivery vehicles. Most commonly, effective drug delivery is associated with nanomaterial-facilitated accumulati...
