Blastocystis subtype 1 (allele 4); Predominant subtype among tuberculosis patients in Iran.

CONCLUSION: Blastocystis ST1 was the most prevalent subtype in TB patients and there was no difference between Blastocystis isolates from TB and non-TB human subjects. PMID: 31300114 [PubMed - in process]

DiscussionIntestinal TB most commonly affected region is the ileocaecal, accounts for 64% of the incidence of gastrointestinal TB. The main reasons for the predilection of ileocaecal region are due to relatively longer faecal static, the abundant of lymphoid tissue, a neutral pH environment and absorptive transport mechanisms that allow swallowed mycobacterium to be absorbed. Intestinal TB may pose similar symptoms as those found in pulmonary TB, yet patients most commonly presenting with abdominal pain. Bacteriological signs and histopathological findings are gold standard for ITB diagnosis. Therapy for ITB includes pharm...

Discussion Iodine enhancement images can be used to calculate CT perfusion maps of blood flow, and compared with 80 kVp images, results showed only a small difference of 1 mL/100 mL/min in blood flow in healthy tissue, whereas patient radiation exposure was increased for dynamic DECT. Perfusion maps calculated based on iodine-enhancement images showed lower blood flow in fatty tissues surrounding the pancreas, indicating reduced susceptibility to residual patient breathing motion during the acquisition.

ConclusionAccording to our results, Nested PCR method had higher sensitivity than LM and is suggested as a good approach for malaria detection. Consideration the wide diversity of tested isolates and the importance of vaccine development, which is affected by this diversity, further studies are needed in this regard.

Publication date: 15 January 2020Source: Materials Chemistry and Physics, Volume 240Author(s): Zhander Vohr Soreño, John Marc C. Puguan, Hern KimAbstractIn the search for portable thermochromic material, this work presented a simple preparation of a thermochromic elastomer using a commercialized dye indicator. The material was prepared using polydimethylsiloxane as a polymer matrix and methyl red as a thermochromic dye via room-temperature vulcanization of spin-coated glass slides. A sample was heated at 10 °C interval and was shown to have a reversible visual thermochromic behavior (orange ↔ yellow). ...

In this study, we attempted to identify the key structural feature for highly potent GyrB inhibitors through 2D-QSAR using HQSAR, 3D-QSAR using CoMSIA and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations approaches on a series of thiazole urea core derivatives. The best HQSAR and CoMSIA models based on IC50 and MIC displayed the structural basis required for good activity against both GyrB enzyme and mycobacterial cell. MD simulations and binding free energy analysis using MM-GBSA and waterswap calculations revealed that the urea core of inhibitors has the strongest interaction with Asp79 via hydrogen bond interactions. In addition, ca...

The primary goal of this study was to understand ELIS in the context of female university students' coping with daily hassles. To identify the dimensions and determinants of ELIS, and to fill this current gap in the literature, a grounded theory study was conducted using Flick's stages of episodic interviewing with 21 Iranian fe...
