Prostate cancer (PCa), a leading cause of cancer-related morbidity and mortality, arises through the acquisition of genetic and epigenetic alterations. Deregulation of histone methyltransferases (HMTs) or demethylases (HDMs) has been associated with PCa development and progression. However, the precise influence of altered HMTs or HDMs expression and(More)
Extracts prepared from the roots of Pelargonium sidoides (DC) are commercially available for the treatment of respiratory related conditions. Recently, a commercial radix mother tincture of this plant was shown to have both antioxidant and anticancer effects especially related to the G 0/G 1 block in the Jurkat E6.1 cell line (unpublished results).(More)
Context Pelargonium sidoides DC (Geraniaceae) is an important medicinal plant indigenous to South Africa and Lesotho. Previous studies have shown that root extracts are rich in polyphenolic compounds with antibacterial, antiviral and immunomodulatory activities. Little is known regarding the anticancer properties of Pelargonium sidoides extracts. Objective(More)

The acoustic attenuation properties of sonic crystals have been studied in the last decades in different fields of interest. Matching the so-called band gap, in which very high attenuation is obtained, with the dominant noise frequencies in order to obtain tailor-made solutions for certain applications is an appealing concept, which makes these structures(More)
During the summer, beach related skin lesions are common reasons for emergency room and dermatology office visits. The authors describe the case of a child with a painful maculopapular rash that resulted after a probable cutaneous exposure to a portuguese-man-of-war. He did not show other signs or symptoms and was discharged home on medications including(More)
Abstract—The present paper examines the impact noise transmission through some floor building assemblies. The Acoubat software numerical simulation has been used to simulate the impact noise transmission through different floor configurations used in Algerian construction mode. The results are compared with the available measurements. We have developed two(More)
