Abstract The applications of praseodymium oxide (Pr6O11) nanomaterials in catalysis, oxygen storage materials, and optical devices are the emergent areas that possess an urgent requirement for the toxicological evaluation of these nanomaterials to determine their impact on the ecology. In the present work, we have employed a multiassay approach for the toxicological profiling of bare and nonionic surface-modulated Pr6O11 nanoparticles (NPs). The contemporary analysis in this work has presented a great prospect to develop efficient indicators and inspect the toxic nature of bare and functionalized Pr6O11 NPs. The e...

GhanemAbstractThe emergence of extensive antibiotics resistant bacteria increased the demands for finding out new sources of antimicrobial agents. Marine niches were reported to be rich in many competent producers of significant bioactive compounds. On the course of screening program for new antimicrobials, a Bacillus strain was isolated from Alexandria sea shores, Egypt. According to the morphological, cultural and biochemical characteristics, 16S rRNA sequence analysis and mat...

In the present study, extract of an agricultural waste, coconut (Cocos nucifera) shell is used to synthesize AgNPs and their antibacterial effect was investigated against selected human pathogens Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhimurium. The AgNPs synthesi...

In conclusion, this outbreak investigation highlighted the importance of close collaboration between regional Public Health Services, the NVWA, the RIVM and diagnostic laboratories. Through a combined microbiological, epidemiological and source tracing approach, raw and undercooked beef products could be identified as the source of the S. Typhimurium outbreak. This outbreak yet again emphasizes the importance of awareness among consumers of the risk of infection when consuming or handling raw meat products. To increase transparency for consumers, we recommend adding warning labels to risk food products. Competing Intere...
