Molecular analysis of volatile metabolites released specifically by staphylococcus aureus and pseudomonas aeruginosa
BackgroundThe routinely used microbiological diagnosis of ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) is time consuming and often requires invasive methods for collection of human specimens (e.g.Expand

Comparative analyses of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from patients, tumors and transformed cell lines for the validation of lung cancer-derived breath markers.
Breath analysis for the purpose of non-invasive diagnosis of lung cancer has yielded numerous candidate compounds with still questionable clinical relevance. To arrive at suitable volatile organicExpand

A Compendium of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Released By Human Cell Lines
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) offer unique insights into ongoing biochemical processes in healthy and diseased humans. Yet, their diagnostic use is hampered by the limited understanding of theirExpand

TD-GC-MS Analysis of Volatile Metabolites of Human Lung Cancer and Normal Cells In vitro
The aim of this study was to confirm the existence of volatile organic compounds (VOC) specifically released or consumed by the lung cancer cell line A549, which could be used in future screens asExpand

Characterization of volatile metabolites taken up by or released from Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae by using GC-MS.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released from or taken up by Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae cultures were analysed by means of GC-MS after adsorption of headspace samples onExpand

Breath analysis for in vivo detection of pathogens related to ventilator-associated pneumonia in intensive care patients: a prospective pilot study.
Existing methods for the early detection of infections in mechanically ventilated (MV) patients at intensive care units (ICUs) are unsatisfactory. Here we present an exploratory study assessing theExpand

Isolation, purification and determination of 4-n-nonylphenol and 4-tert-octylphenol in aqueous and biological samples.
The aim of the present study was to attempt to describe the procedure of isolation, purification, enrichment and determination of 4-n-nonylphenol (4-n-NP) and 4-tert-octylphenol (4-t-OP) in water andExpand

Dipyridamole inhibits hydroxylamine augmented nitric oxide (NO) production by activated polymorphonuclear neutrophils through an adenosine-independent mechanism.
Polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) are thought to play a role in reperfusion injury and ischemia. These effects are partly mediated by toxic oxygen species (superoxide anion, hydrogen peroxide andExpand

Bursaphelenchus trypophloei sp. n. (Nematoda: Parasitaphelenchinae) - an associate of the bark beetle, Trypophloeus asperatus (Gyll.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae), in aspen, Populus
Bursaphelenchus trypophloei sp. n. is described from weakened and dead twigs of living or recently fallen aspen trees, Populus tremula , in Poland. All propagative stages of the nematode were presentExpand

Coevolution of host-parasite associations and methods for studying their cophylogeny
Coevolution may be defined as the process of reciprocal, adaptive genetic change in two or more species. Host-parasite interactions play an important role in the evolutionary ecology. The hostExpand
