Purpose: To assess the effect of "N-Acetylation and C-Amidation" on the cellular uptake, cytotoxicity and performance of amphiphilic cell penetrating peptides (CPP) loaded with methotrexate (MTX).
Methods: Several CPPs were synthesized by solid phase peptide synthesis method. Some of these sequences were modified with pyroglutamic acid at N-terminus and benzylamine or memantine at C-terminus. Read More

Aims And Objectives: To explore Indigenous people's experiences of hospitalisation for acute cardiac care.
Background: Indigenous Australians suffer a higher burden of cardiovascular ill health and hospitalisation rates in comparison with other Australians, but there is little research that explores their perspectives of hospitalisation.
Design: Narrative inquiry. Read More

Purpose: The EphA2 tyrosine kinase is frequently overexpressed in human tumors that are also treated with radiation. However, few studies have examined the effect of radiation on the EphA2 receptor itself. The purpose of this project was to investigate the impact of radiation on EphA2 to better understand mechanisms of radioresistance. Read More

When a fuel and oxidant flow in laminar contact through a micro-fluidic channel, a sharp interface appears between the two liquids, which eliminate the need of a proton exchange membrane. This principle has been used to generate potential in a membrane-less fuel cell. This study use such a cell to harvest energy of interaction between a bacteria having negative charge on its surface and a bacteriophage with positive and negative charges on its tail and head, respectively.

A denture plaque index using the dye disclosing method was evaluated in 24 patients with Type II denture stomatitis and 17 control subjects with healthy palatal mucosa. Patients with denture stomatitis had statistically significantly higher plaque scores than did controls, indicating a quantitative increase in denture plaque in patients with denture stomatitis. When this plaque index was tested by two examiners for intraexaminer and interexaminer reproducibility, it yielded a 92% to 96% reproducibility. Read More
