In this study, we evaluated the antimicrobial activity of the extracts from herbal plant Persecaria pensylvanicum’s flower, leaf, stem and root. This plant is also known by a common name Pennsylvania smartweed. The antimicrobial effect of the extracts was tested using minimimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum bacteriocidal concentration (MBC) methods in comparison with tetracycline, a commercial antibiotic.ResultsWe found that extract from P. pensylvanicum kills bovine mammary glands pathogenic S. aureus strain Newbould 305. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) breakpoints for extracts from flower, l...

Publication date: Available online 23 May 2019Source: Journal of Materials Research and TechnologyAuthor(s): An Huang, Honglian Dai, Xiaopei Wu, Zheng Zhao, Yanzeng WuAbstractThe mesoporous hydroxyapatite (HAP) powder was synthesized by using the microemulsion (hexadecyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB)/cyclohexane/n-octyl alcohol) system. The optimal ratios of concentrations of CTAB, cyclohexane and n-octyl alcohol in the microemulsion on morphology of the HAP were studied. The effects of pHs and calcination temperatures on the phase composition of the HAP powder were discussed. The phase composition, morphology, mesoporo...

ConclusionThe dosing for this indication is likely to be in the order of 100 million cells per infusion. Large numbers of cells thus need to be manufactured and using standard cell culture techniques would make it too expensive and labour intensive. A standard expansion protocol in flasks or cell factories is an open process, and therefore run in expensive clean rooms to avoid the risk of contamination. We have explored several state-of-the art-bioreactor systems, and various types of microcarriers in stirred tanks from different manufacturers. We have tested these systems to optimize the complete workflow of HepaStem cult...

ConclusionNeoSERA is produced in Japan, considered to be a negligible bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) risk country. We obtain adult donor bovine blood from animal less than 36 months old according to the regulation of EMA for BSE (EMA/410/01 rev.3). Using apheresis medical devices with closed disposable kits, sterile platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is collected from healthy donor bovine receiving a regular veterinary check. After stimulation and removal of coagulated fibrin by centrifugation, NeoSERA is collected in a completely closed system. To meet the scope of directives that apply to produce medicinal products from ...

Authors: Sharma Bora N, Mazumder B, Patowary P, Kishor S, Doma Bhutia Y, Chattopadhyay P, Dwivedi SK Abstract The present study is aimed at the development of a sunscreen cream for use in high altitude areas which have been found to possess superior sun protection factor (SPF) along with remarkable antioxidant activity. The topical formulation is a standard oil-in-water emulsion of a combination of United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) approved ultraviolet filters; along with melatonin and pumpkin seed oil. The in-silico optimized formulation was characterized using established methods and the stabili...

Authors: Tan J, Steinhoff M, Bewley A, Gieler U, Rives V Abstract Objective: To characterize rosacea features suitable for identification of high-burden (HB) subjects in clinical practice. Design: Global online survey with subjects recruited using an online panel from the United States, Canada, Italy, United Kingdom, Germany and France. Subjects self-reported a physician's diagnosis of rosacea. Measurements: HB subjects were defined as those with ≥3/4 domains (quality of life, lifestyle adaptation, time trade-off, willingness to pay) greater than the median. Group characteristics were analyzed and multivariate-l...

People with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) who don ’t achieve adequate relief from medication and cognitive-behavioral therapy may benefit from deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (dTMS), astudy inAJP in Advancesuggests.During dTMS treatment, a cap containing coils delivers magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. The study compared active dTMS treatment with sham (inactive) treatment in 87 people with OCD, with participants in the active treatment group experiencing greater improvement in symptoms at the end of treatment and at a follow-up assessment four weeks later.The study, led by Lior Carm...
