CONCLUSIONS: The findings indicated that miR-708-5p level was upregulated in macrophages after M.tb infection. And miR-708-5p could regulate mycobacterial vitality and inflammatory response to M.tb infection in human macrophages by targeting TLR4. PMID: 31599428 [PubMed - in process]
[The Herald] French President Emmanuel Macron reserved rare praise for Zimbabwe for its deepened fight against HIV, tuberculosis (TB) and malaria.
The objective of the study was to develop and optimize a simple, sensitive, and reliable high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method for the simultaneous determination of isoniazid (INH), pyrazinamide (PZA), and rifampin (RIF) levels in human plasma. Nicotinamide was used as the internal standard and the samples were prepared after protein precipitation using acetonitrile and zinc sulfate. The separation was achieved using a C18 reversed-phase applying gradient elution. The mobile phase was a combination of water–methanol solution with a ratio of 95:05 (v/v) at the initial phase. All calibration curves had g...
