A media content analysis of New Zealand's district health board Population-Based Funding Formula.
CONCLUSIONS: The findings suggest general discontent with the PBFF model across the DHB sector and a sense that the PBFF has failed to address various challenges facing DHBs. The geographic imbalance in reporting volume suggests that frustration with the PBFF is particularly keenly felt in the South Island. Although the PBFF is a lightning rod for frustrations over limited health funding, the findings point to the need to improve transparency and dialogue around the formula and to monitor of the impact of PBFF allocations throughout the country.

Microstructure evolution and mechanical properties of AZ80 magnesium alloy during high-pass multi-directional forging
Publication date: Available online 18 August 2018Source: Results in PhysicsAuthor(s): Jinlong Zhang, Hui Xie, Zhenlin Lu, Ying Ma, Shiping Tao, Kun ZhaoAbstractSevere plastic deformation (SPD) was carried out on AZ80 alloy by high-pass multi-directional forging (MDF). Results showed that AZ80 alloy was effectively refined through MDF, and average grain size was refined to 0.73µm after 24 passes of forging. Its tensile strength, yield strength and elongation reached 333.8 MPa, 233.7MPa and 17.8%, respectively, which were 1.22 times, 1.35 times and 2.54 times of those before the forging. When the MDF was less than 6 passes,...

Peptide based Antimicrobials: Design Strategies and Therapeutic Potential
Publication date: Available online 18 August 2018Source: Progress in Biophysics and Molecular BiologyAuthor(s): Prakash Kishore Hazam, Ruchika Goyal, Vibin RamakrishnanAbstractTherapeutic activity of antibiotics is noteworthy, as they are used in the treatment of microbial infections. Regardless of their utility, there has been a steep decrease in the number of drug candidates due to antibiotic resistance, an inevitable consequence of noncompliance with the full therapeutic regimen. A variety of resistant species like MDR (Multi-Drug Resistant), XDR (Extensively Drug-Resistant) and PDR (Pan Drug-Resistant) species have evo...

Immobilization of acetylcholinesterase on functionalized SBA-15 mesoporous molecular sieve for detection of organophosphorus and carbamate pesticide
Publication date: September 2018Source: Chinese Chemical Letters, Volume 29, Issue 9Author(s): Yin Rui, Xiaomei Wu, Baodi Ma, Yi XuAbstractThe immobilization of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) on amino functionalized SBA-15 mesoporous sieves (NH2-SBA-15) was explored for detection of organophosphorus and carbamate pesticides. Several methods have been studied and the “adsorption-crosslinking” is found to be the best one. Firstly, AChE and bovine serum albumin (BSA) were adsorbed in turn on the surface of NH2-SBA-15 by electrostatic adsorption, and then glutaraldehyde was added for cross-linking the amino group of AChE.

Sensitive and Range-Extended Bisphenol A Detection Using Gold Nanostars in a Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering Improved Lateral Flow Immunochromatographic Assay
We report on the development of a new range-extended bisphenol A (BPA) detection method that uses a surface-enhanced Raman scattering lateral flow assay (SERS-LFA) binary system. The assay includes high-SERS-performance gold nanoparticles, i.e., 40 nm gold nanostars (GNSs) and 4-aminothiolphenol (4-ATP) as a Raman reporter. To demonstrate the performance of this SERS-LFA kit in BPA detection, we tested BPA stock solutions with concentrations ranging from 0.05 to 60 ppb. The GNSs were coated with 4-ATP and then anti-BPA antibody serving as a biorecognition reagent to acquire both visual and Raman signals after applicati...
