AIM Study of the effectiveness of in situ bacteriocin production by lactic acid bacteria (LAB) to control Listeria monocytogenes in dry-fermented sausages. METHODS AND RESULTS Two bacteriocin-producing strains: Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis LMG21206 and Lactobacillus curvatus LBPE were grown in a pilot scale fermentor and lyophilized to be directly(More)
Health authorities currently have high expectations for telemedicine (TM), as it addresses several major challenges: to improve access to healthcare (especially for patients in underserved or remote areas); to overcome the scarcity of specialists faced with epidemic disease; and to reduce the costs of healthcare while improving quality. The aims of TM in(More)
This study aims to develop a reproducible rat model for post-traumatic bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ). In our previous studies using dental extraction as an inducing factor, only 30%-60% of zoledronate-treated animals fulfilled the definition of clinical BRONJ. We modified the zoledronate regimen and introduced repeated surgical(More)
The Health Authorities have huge expectations of telemedicine (TM): improved patient access to healthcare, a solution to the shortage of doctors in the face of an exponentially expanding disease, and reduced healthcare costs with improved quality. There are a host of applications for TM in the area of diabetes. TM has been validated and has been widely used(More)
OBJECTIVES Bisphosphonates become adsorbed on hydroxyapatite crystals in the bone matrix. In case of side-effects, stopping the treatment would not affect the bisphosphonates already deposited in bone. This study tests the feasibility of in-vivo targeted removal of bisphosphonates from bone using chelating agents. DESIGN 32 Sprague Dawley rats were given(More)
