Publication date: Available online 22 August 2019Source: LWTAuthor(s): Shunmugavel Uma Maheshwari, Sundarajan Amutha, Rangasamy Anandham, Ganapathyswamy Hemalatha, Natesan Senthil, Soon Woo Kwon, Natesan SivakumarAbstract:Panchamirtham is a fermented fruit mix made from natural fermentation of fruits (banana, brown sugar, seedless dates, sugar candy, honey, cardamom and ghee), which offers multiple health benefits to human. Research on fermented foods for probiotic microorganisms remains scarce compared to other dairy products. Hence, this present study was aimed to characterise the cultivable bacteria associated with panchamirtham and to identify potential probiotic bacteria. In total, one hundred and three bacterial cultures were isolated from different growth media from three different panchamirtham samples. Molecular characterization of 103 bacterial isolates revealed that these isolates were fell into Bacillus sp., Enterobacter sp., Acinetobacter sp., Panteoa sp., Microbacterium sp., Klebsiella sp., Sphingomonas sp., Ornithinibacillus sp., Myroides sp., Kocuria sp., Alcaligens sp., and Brevundimonas sp. Seventeen isolates exhibited antimicrobial activity against human pathogens viz., Listeria monocytogens, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Also these bacterial isolates exhibited pH, bile salt tolerance, produced biofilm, exopolysaccharide and exhibited no haemolytic activity. In cytotoxicity assay Bacillus valezensis M4S1B1 and Proteus t...

JohnsonAbstractEpidemiologic evidence indicates that regular use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) provides a protective effect against the development of colorectal, breast, and head and neck cancers. Genomic characterization of these cancers has lent considerable insight into the subpopulations of cancer patients who are most likely to benefit from NSAID therapy. The PIK3CA gene encodes the catalytic subunit of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) and...

WengAbstractT-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) is an aggressive cancer, characterized by an uncontrolled expansion and accumulation of T-cell progenitors. During leukemic progression, immature T cells grow abnormally and occupy the bone marrow compartment, thereby interfering with the production of normal blood cells. Pediatric T-ALL is curable with intensive chemotherapy, but there are significant, long-term side effects and ∼20% of patients suf...

The BMIM-Cl adsorption on the GO sheets was investigated by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction analysis and UV–vis spectroscopy. The effect of GO-BMIM-Cl on the corrosion resistance of the epoxy coating was studied by EIS and salt spray test. In ad...

GBM is a heterogeneous group of brain tumors, is highly prone to develop resistance and likely to recur. In the context of GBM, the delivery of anti-cancer drugs is challenging because the blood brain barrier (BBB) restricts the passage of small molecules. Currently, nanomedicines based on liposome...

This study analyzed the characteristics of PD-L1 expression and used immunohistochemistry to assess CD8 and CD4 tumor-infiltrating leucocytes (TILs) in 478 cases of gastric cancer compared with the expression patterns in 70 matched adjacent tissues, and 32 cases of benign gastric tissues. Standardized methods for TILs assessment in gastric cancer were used. RESULTS The results indicated that PD-L1 expression was increased in gastric cancer tissues (193 out of 478, 40.37%) compared with matched adjacent tissues (14 out of 70, 20.00%) and benign gastric tissues (10 out of 32, 31.25%). It was observed that in gastric cancer p...
