Isolation of Antimicrobial Compounds From Cnestis ferruginea Vahl ex. DC (Connaraceae) Leaves Through Bioassay-Guided Fractionation

Conclusion In conclusion, aqueous extracts of C. ferruginea leaves showed antimicrobial activity due to the presence of hydroquinone and caffeic acid methyl ester. This supports its traditional use for infections and confirmed that the active molecules are water-soluble. Author Contributions KK, SP, LVP, and WL conceived and designed the experiments. SP, KK, M-RY, and J-GL performed the experiments. SP, LVP, WL, M-RY, J-GL, and Z-HJ analyzed the data. WL and Z-HJ contributed reagents, materials, and analysis tools. KK, SP, WL, M-RY, Z-HJ, and LVP contributed to the writing of the manuscript. All authors contributed to manuscript revision, read, and approved the submitted version. Funding KK received Visiting Fellow-Specialization grant from Interfaculty Council for Development Co-operation Specialization Programme to carry out this research at KU Leuven (ID 0475402/000000050868 and ID 0475402/000000065214). SP, LVP, and WL largely supported themselves. This work was also financially supported by Tertiary Education Services Office, Macau Special Administrative Region (GAES-17-001-SKL). Conflict of Interest Statement The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest. Acknowledgments The author KK wishes to thank the authorities of Université Félix Houphouët-Boigny for providing the necessary facilities for collection and identific...

Publication date: January 2020Source: Biometric Technology Today, Volume 2020, Issue 1Author(s): A new study has ranked 50 countries on how extensively and invasively they use biometric surveillance, and in contrast who best regulates the technology. China is named the poorest performer of all, but perhaps surprisingly it is joined by the US in the five worst countries – while the UK is ranked among the top five best-regulated.

Conclusion The current level of awareness for clinical trials of cancer patients in our hospital was relatively low, even in patients who had atte nded clinical trials before. It’s necessary to improve patients’ awareness of clinical trial by promoting harmony relationship between patients and doctors, as well as by enhancing related propagation. Strengthening the adequacy and efficacy of informed consent in clinical trials also needs to b e achieved in the future. DOI: 10.3779/j.issn.1009-3419.2020.01.02

This study mainly explores the relationship between the ASPM expression of lung adenocarcinoma and the development and prognosis of lung cancer. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the expression of abnormal spindle-like microcephaly-associated protein (ASPM) in lung adenocarcinoma and the development and prognosis in lung cancer. Methods A total of 90 cases of lung adenocarcinoma tissue specimens and 90 cases of benign pulmonary lesions were collected, the expression of ASPM was detected by immunohistochemical technique, and the expression of ASPM in 12 pairs of tissues was detected by real-t...
