Nitrogen-doped carbon dots-V2O5 nanobelts sensing platform for sensitive detection of ascorbic acid and alkaline phosphatase activity.

Nitrogen-doped carbon dots-V2O5 nanobelts sensing platform for sensitive detection of ascorbic acid and alkaline phosphatase activity. Anal Chim Acta. 2019 Dec 16;1089:131-143 Authors: Zhu R, Huang W, Ma X, Zhang Y, Yue C, Fang W, Hu Y, Wang J, Dang J, Zhao H, Li Z Abstract In this work, the as-prepared V2O5 nanobelts can sensitively quench the fluorescence of nitrogen-doped carbon dots (N-CDs) based on the inner filter effect (IFE). In the presence of ascorbic acid (AA), the fluorescence of N-CDs can recover through the redox reaction between V2O5 nanobelts and AA. Meanwhile, in the presence of both alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and ascorbyl-2-phosphate (AAP), the fluorescence of N-CDs can also restore since AAP can be hydrolyzed into AA by ALP. Under optimum conditions, the linear range for AA is from 0.01 to 2.5 μM with a detection limit of 3 nM and that for ALP is from 0.1 to 30 U/L with a detection limit of 0.04 U/L (S/N = 3). Particularly, the proposed probe could be successfully used to detect AA and ALP in human serum samples. Furthermore, N-CDs can be applied in fluorescence imaging of Human breast cancer cells with satisfactory results. PMID: 31627810 [PubMed - in process]

egi A Abstract BACKGROUND: Breast cancer survivors can experience psychological distress, such as anxiety and depression, long after treatment has ended, and the development of such negative affective states has been related to the coping strategy used. OBJECTIVES: This pilot study aims to determine whether different coping strategies are associated with differences in psychological distress, cortisol, and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a) levels in breast cancer survivors. METHODS: 54 breast cancer survivors completed the Stress Coping Questionnaire and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale and pr...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Receiving a breast cancer diagnosis can be traumatic and anxiety-producing. The way the diagnosis is disclosed to patients can affect their experience. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this article is to determine patient preferences for being informed of a breast cancer diagnosis and the breast nurse navigator (BNN) role during the diagnostic experience. METHODS: A survey was mailed to 517 patients with breast cancer. Summary statistics were performed on 199 completed surveys. FINDINGS: Patients preferred to hear their diagnosis in person. BNNs were more likely to provide the right amoun...

Authors: Hwong A, Wang K, Bent S, Mangurian C Abstract OBJECTIVE: Women with schizophrenia appear to receive breast cancer diagnoses at later stages of the disease compared with the general population. To study this disparity, this report reviewed and quantified the differences in rates of mammography screening for women with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders compared with the general population. METHODS: A systematic literature search was conducted in PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, and PsycINFO databases. Each database was searched from inception to September 14, 2018. The search strategy included s...
