During an 1848 cholera outbreak in India, British Army Surgeon J. Collis Browne, M.R.C.S. (1819 to 1884) used Chlorodyne —his formulation of laudanum, cannabis, and chloroform—as an antidiarrheal remedy. Years later, he partnered with London pharmacist J. T. Davenport to mass-market Chlorodyne as a panacea. From Manchester, England, Robert Gibson&Sons combined Chlorodyne with Linseed and Liquorice in decorative tins of cough lozenges (above). By 1901 these “beautifully enameled counter show tins” were advertised to American professionals and the public as filled with cough lozenges that “a...

Abstract Fresh vegetables are important components of an everyday balanced diet making ready to-eat-salads (RTE) a commodity widely consumed. However, in the past few years these products have been linked with outbreaks of salmonellosis and listeriosis; thus the continuous investigation of their safety is an essential requirement. A total of 216 samples of ready-to-eat salads from the Cypriot market were analysed to determine the microbiological quality and safety, along with physicochemical attributes of the salads and identify possible correlations between them. The samples were randomly collected from four reta...

The C Abstract The capacity of the Bacillus weihenstephanensis KBAB4 strain, a psychrotolerant species of the B. cereus sensu lato group, to multiply in carrot broth at 8 °C and 30 °C, in presence or absence of oxygen was determined. In aerobic carrot broth tyndallized in presence of oxygen, at both temperatures, the population of vegetative cells of B. weihenstephanensis inoculated at a level of 103 or 106 CFU/ml dropped immediately. After 16 h at 30 °C, B. weihenstephanensis reached around 103 CFU/ml, indicating that some vegetative cells had survived and multiplied, with lipid inclusio...

In this study, the maize root-associated bacterial communities of 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) transgenic glyphosate-tolerant (GT) maize line CC-2 (CC2) and its recipient variety Zhengdan958 (Z958) were compared at the tasseling and flowering stages by high-throughput sequencing of V3-V4 hypervariable regions of 16S rRNA gene (16S rDNA) amplicons via Illumina MiSeq. In addition, real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR) was also performed to analyze the nifH gene abundance between CC2 and Z958. Our results showed no significant difference in alpha/beta diversity of root-associated bacterial communities at th...

beth Moen Work in the wood industry might be associated with respiratory health problems. The production of particleboard used for furniture making and construction is increasing in many countries, and cause dust, endotoxin and formaldehyde exposure of the workers. The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of respiratory symptoms and to measure lung function among Ethiopian particleboard workers using Eucalyptus trees as the raw material. In total 147 workers, 74 from particleboard production and 73 controls, participated in the study. Mean wood dust in the particleboard factories was measured to be above recom...
