Surgical precision is pivotal and "Decisions are more important than incisions": Two decades of Pelican Cancer Face to Face Workshops.

Colorectal Dis 2021 Apr 17. Epub 2021 Apr 17.

Department Colorectal Surgery, Basingstoke Hospital, North Hampshire Hospitals Foundation Trust, Aldermaston Road Basingstoke, RG24 9NA, UK.

"Hands, Face, Space" has become the slogan of our times as the world grapples with the COVID 19 pandemic. While this strategy of washing hands, covering one's face and keeping at a distance from other humans may reduce infectious disease, some aspects of this strategy are the opposite of what best constitutes surgical care of patients with colorectal cancer. The strategy is also at odds with Pelican Cancer Foundation "Face to Face" educational activities over the past two decades. Read More

Dual-functionalized magnetic bimetallic metal-organic framework composite for highly specific enrichments of phosphopeptides and glycopeptides.

Anal Chim Acta 2021 May 16;1158:338412. Epub 2021 Mar 16.

Shanghai Key Laboratory of Functional Materials Chemistry,School of Chemistry & Molecular Engineering, East China University of Science and Technology, Shanghai, PR China.

In this work, a dual-functionalized magnetic bimetallic metal-organic framework composite denoted as FeO@SiO@(Zr-Ti-MOF)-NH was ingeniously designed and fabricated by a facial layer-by-layer assembly technique. The composite not only exhibited strong affinity for phosphopeptide due to the coexistence of Zr-O clusters and Ti-O clusters, but also owned great hydrophilicity for glycopeptides relying on abundant hydrophilic NH groups, meeting the demand for simultaneously enrichment and sequential elution of phosphopeptides and glycopeptides. As expected, the synthesized composite showed great selectivity (1:2000 M ratio of β-casein:BSA; 1:50 M ratio of IgG:BSA), good sensitivity (1 fmol μL for both α-casein and IgG), and good capacity (80 mg g for α-casein and 200 mg g for IgG).
