Event-related potentials in two auditory target detection paradigms and two auditory paradigms without overt tasks were studied in 22 schizophrenic, 21 depressed, and 28 matched control subjects meeting Research Diagnostic Criteria. In the target detection paradigms, schizophrenics showed a pattern of reduced N120 amplitude and shorter P200 latency to(More)
BACKGROUND Punica granatum L. or pomegranates, have been reported to have antimicrobial activity against a range of Gram positive and negative bacteria. Pomegranate formulations containing ferrous salts have enhanced although short-term, antibacteriophage activities which are rapidly diminished owing to instability of the ferrous combination. The aim of(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, natural products have been evaluated as sources of antimicrobial agents with efficacies against a variety of micro-organisms. METHODS This report describes the antimicrobial activities of pomegranate rind extract (PRE) singularly and in combination with cupric sulphate against methicillin-sensitive and -resistant Staphylococcus aureus(More)
Barley (Hordeum vulgare) is a major feed source for the intensive livestock industry. Competitiveness against other cereal grains depends largely on the price per unit of expressed feed quality. The traits which contribute to feed quality in barley are largely quantitative in nature but little is known about their genetic control. A study to identify the(More)
BACKGROUND Enhancement of antimicrobial plant products e.g. pomegranate extract by copper (II) sulphate is known. Such combinations have applications in various settings, including the identification of novel compositions to study, treat and control infection. METHODS A combination of white tea (WT) (made allowing 10 minutes infusion time at 100°C) was(More)
A study was performed to investigate the value of near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) as an alternate method to analytical techniques for identifying QTL associated with feed quality traits. Milled samples from an F6—derived recombinant inbred Tallon/Scarlett population were incubated in the rumen of fistulated cattle, recovered, washed and dried(More)
