Competition among free radicals polymerization, Michael addition reaction and aza-Michael addition reaction mechanisms for the BMI/TBTA reaction system was characterized by using differential scanning calorimeter (DSC), electron spin resonance (ESR) and 1H-NMR techniques. Both radical polymerization and...

CONCLUSIONS: Qualitative results extend comparable quantitative research by detailing how an appropriately tailored eight-week meditation-based program has the potential to decrease perceived stress in highly stressful work environments. SO WHAT?: Triangulated data suggests that an appropriately adapted mindfulness meditation program can be an effective, efficient and low-cost inclusion within an organisation's health promotion repertoire to help increase mental health among staff. SUMMARY: Promoting mental health in the workplace through mindfulness meditation is an increasing area of research, however Australian data...

Contributors : Zhang Gao ; Tian TianSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensImmune checkpoint blockade (ICB) therapy provides remarkable clinical gains, where melanoma is at the forefront of its success. However, only a subset of patients with advanced tumors currently benefit from these therapies, which at times incur considerable side-effects and costs. Constructing such predictors of patient ’s response has remained a serious challenge due to the complexity of the immune response and the shortage of large ICB-treated patient cohorts including both omics and response d...

Publication date: Available online 19 August 2018Source: Journal of BiotechnologyAuthor(s): Huiyong Zhang, Enchao Jia, Wenjiao Xia, Chengui Lu, Wuling ZhuAbstractVEGF165b has been shown to be an effective anti-cancer agent; however, its short half-life limits further application in the clinical field. The development of a mutant VEGF165b with a prolonged half-life is urgently needed for its future application. A mutant VEGF165b was generated by inactivation of its plasmin cleavage site. The mutant and native VEGF165b proteins without purification tags were expressed via the Pichia pastoris expression system followed by pur...

The structural characterization and optical properties of BiOCl/AgBr photocatalysts were well studied by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and UV–vis diffuse reflection spectrum. The photocatalytic activities of as-synthesized photocatalysts were evaluated by the degradation of r...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewRecent whole genome characterizations of primary human bladder cancers revealed that they can be grouped into “intrinsic” basal and luminal molecular subtypes. Here, we provide an overview of the subtypes and discuss their biological and clinical properties.Recent FindingsBasal cancers are characterized by advanced stage and metastatic disease at presentation. They tend to be enriched with squamous and small cell/neuroendocrine features and inactivating mutations and deletions ofTP53 andRB1. Basal cancers can be divided into “epithelial” and “mesenchymal” (also k...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTriple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) accounts for 15 –20% of diagnosed breast tumours, with higher incidence in young and African-American women, and it is frequently associated with BRCA germline mutations. Chemotherapy is the only well-established therapeutic option in both early- and advanced-stages of the disease. TNBC tumours relapse earlier af ter standard anthracycline- and/or taxane-based chemotherapy treatments, generally within 1–3 years after the diagnosis, and often develop visceral metastases, representing the subtype with a worse prognosis among all breast cancers. In...
