Phytofabrication of Selenium Nanoparticles From Emblica officinalis Fruit Extract and Exploring Its Biopotential Applications: Antioxidant, Antimicrobial, and Biocompatibility

In conclusion, potential biological applications of PF-SeNPs were explored by antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant and biocompatibility assays. Materials and Methods Chemicals and Reagents Sodium selenite (98%), 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide) (MTT), Tween 80, methanol, acetate buffer, tetracycline, nystatin, rhodamine 123, caspase-3 kit, Dulbecco’s modified Eagle media (DMEM), Folin-Ciocalteu reagent, 2,2-azinobis-(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonate) (ABTS), Dulbecco’s phosphate buffered saline pH 7.4 (DPBS) and fetal bovine serum (FBS) were obtained from Sigma-Aldrich (Bengaluru, India). The microbial culture media, including Muller Hinton Broth (MHB), Muller Hinton Agar (MHA), brain heart infusion (BHI) broth, sabouraud dextrose agar (SDA), and sabouraud dextrose broth (SDB) were obtained from HiMedia (Mumbai, India). The live/dead dual staining assay kit was purchased from Thermo Fisher Scientific (Bengaluru, India). The plastic and glassware were obtained from Nunc and Borosil, respectively (Bengaluru, India). The other chemicals used in the study were belonged to analytical grade and were obtained from Merck Millipore (Bengaluru, India). Collection and Preparation of E. officinalis Fruit Aqueous Extract The fresh fruits of E. officinalis were collected from the local agriculture market, Pondicherry, India. They were washed thoroughly with distilled water, deseeded using a sterile knif...

Jie, S.U.N. Xuan, X.U. BiaoAbstract and KeywordsHypertension (HT) is the most common public-health challenge and shows a high incidence around the world. Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of mortality and morbidity among the elderly (age> 65 years) in the United States. Now, there is widespread acceptance of the causal link between HT and acute myocardial infarction (MI). This is the first data-mining study to id...

ConclusionHigh levels of lifestyle-related cancer-risk behaviors were found in most of the Hong Kong construction workers studied. The present study contributes to understanding how cancer-related lifestyle risk behaviors cluster among construction workers and relative impact factors of risk behaviors. It is essential to tailor health behavior interventions focused on multiple risk behaviors among different groups for further enlarging the effects on cancer prevention.

Definitive treatment with laparoscopic deroofing was planned, however intra-operatively this was abandoned due to complex anatomy and scared adherent tissue. Patient went on to have a flexible ureteroscopy and ‘through and through’ puncture of an intrarenal cyst with PCNL to treat his stones and renal cyst simultaneously. CT scan 12 months later showe...

We report one case, in which the patient presented to the emergency department with lower urinary tract symptoms, fever and consumptive syndrome. Acute prostatitis was initially suspected, but subsequently prostate adenocarcinoma was diagnosed.This case enables us to consider the possibility of prostate adenocarcinoma as the diagnose in patients with fever of unknown origin, and the role of procalcitonin to rule out the presence of infection.

CooperbergAbstractBackgroundActive surveillance (AS)/watchful waiting (WW) strategy for localized prostate cancer (PCa) is increasingly and broadly endorsed as a preferred option for initial treatment of men with very low- and low-risk PCa, but outcomes can be difficult to analyze in traditional, population-based registries. The recently released Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Prostate with WW dataset provides an op...
