Biomarkers in exhaled breath condensate (EBC) and fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) have been widely evaluated in respiratory research as non-invasive methods of sampling the lungs. These methods are particularly attractive in lung transplantation (LTx) as they are simple, repeatable and sensitive. Chronic rejection, manifest by progressive airflow(More)
AIMS There is some evidence to suggest that incompleteness of coronary artery revascularisation after PCI is associated with inferior outcomes. The SYNTAX score was developed as a tool to quantify the extent of coronary artery disease in the SYNTAX study. We aimed to use this score to quantify the completeness of revascularisation after PCI (the "residual(More)
Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux (GOR) is a key problem in Cystic Fibrosis (CF), but the relationship between lung and gastric microbiomes is not well understood. We hypothesised that CF gastric and lung microbiomes are related. Gastric and sputum cultures were obtained from fifteen CF patients receiving percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy feeding. Non-CF gastric(More)
Piper colubrinum Link., an exotic species, is a wild relative of cultivated black pepper (Piper nigrum L.), and shows high degree of resistance to the oomycete pathogen Phytophthora capsici, which causes the devastating ‘quick wilt’ disease in P. nigrum. Serine/threonine protein kinase (PcSTPK) is a prospective candidate gene identified from P. colubrinum(More)
This study attempts to provide real-world evidence of the economic value of lamotrigine as a mood stabilizer for patients with bipolar disorder. Researchers examined longitudinal administrative claims data obtained for patients with a diagnosis of affective disorder between 1997 and 2001. The study compared outcomes for the 12 months preceding initiation of(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the visual acuity (VA) of patients with and without vitreous loss, while concurrently analyzing the effects of the pre-existing pathologies of glaucoma and diabetes on VA. METHODS A retrospective study on 1013 cataract extractions from 1995 to 1999 was performed. Patients included in this study had intraocular lens implantation during(More)
Black pepper (Piper nigrum L.), a tropical spice crop of global acclaim, is susceptible to Phytophthora capsici, an oomycete pathogen which causes the highly destructive foot rot disease. A systematic understanding of this phytopathosystem has not been possible owing to lack of genome or proteome information. In this study, we explain an integrated(More)
The critical micelle concentration (CMC) of several surfactants that contain an NLO chromophore, either at the hydrocarbon tail, or at the hydrophilic headgroup, or even as a counterion, was determined by hyper-Rayleigh scattering (HRS). In all cases, the HRS signal exhibited a similar variation with surfactant concentration, wherein the CMC is inferred(More)
