Central Venous Catheters (CVCs) represent a significant source of infection in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and can add to the cost of care, morbidity, and mortality. Organisms forming biofilms on the inner surface of catheters require a much higher local antibiotic concentration to clear the pathogen growth. Antibiotic lock therapy (ALT) represents one such strategy to achieve such high intraluminal concentrations of antibiotics and can facilitate catheter salvage. Read More

Green fluorescent protein (GFP) is widely used as a molecular tool to assess protein expression and localization. In , the signal from weakly expressed GFP fusion proteins is masked by autofluorescence emitted from the intestinal lysosome-related gut granules. For instance, the GFP fluorescence from SKN-1 transcription factor fused to GFP is barely visible with common GFP (FITC) filter setups. Read More

The present study has reported an optimized fabrication and application of a novel PVA/TEOS/Schiff base nanofibers membrane as a highly sensitive copper (II) ions in aqueous environment. Here in, for first time, an ultrasound-assisted synthesized symmetric Schiff base has been immobilized on a hybrid polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and TEOS using electrospinning technique for detection and filtration of copper ions. For this purpose, various working parameters were evaluated and finally the optimized nano fibers membrane was synthesized with 72 nm thickness and PVA/TEOS/Schiff base ratio of (wt%) 8:6:1.

Background: Prior research on the efficacy of vertebroplasty has focused primarily on subjective, patient-reported outcomes.
Objective: To apply an armband activity monitor (SenseWear by BodyMedia Inc, USA) to patients presenting for consideration for vertebroplasty and to determine the correlation between patient-reported outcomes and quantitative activity metrics at baseline and 30 days after presentation.
Materials And Methods: Nineteen patients were enrolled (15 receiving vertebroplasty, 4 not receiving vertebroplasty). Read More

Pyogenic granuloma is a benign lesion of the skin and mucosa commonly known to occur in the head and neck region. The current literature has not yet identified its occurrence within the conchal bowl, a condition that leads to obstruction of the external auditory meatus. We present the case of a 28-year-old man who presented with a history of 3-4 weeks of a rapidly enlarging pedunculated lesion within the conchal bowl of the right ear and conductive hearing loss.
