An outbreak of acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis (AHC) was reported in Singapore military camps in the year 2005. A total of 103 conjunctival swab specimens were collected from military personnel diagnosed clinically with AHC. PCR testing on these conjunctival specimens revealed the presence of an enterovirus, and this was confirmed by virus isolation.(More)
This investigation examined the susceptibility to staining and translucency changes of some new tooth-colored restorative materials after immersion in different beverages. The materials studied were 3M Filtek Z350XT (ZT), 3M Filtek 350XT Flowable Restorative (ZF), Shofu Beautifil Flow Plus (BF), Shofu Beautifil II (B2), 3M Ketac Nano (N100), and 3M Photac(More)
Fluorescence and confocal laser scanning microscopy were explored to investigate the movement and localization of mineral oils in citrus. In a laboratory experiment, fluorescence microscopy observation indicated that when a 'narrow' distillation fraction of an nC23 horticultural mineral oil was applied to adaxial and opposing abaxial leaf surfaces of potted(More)

The influence of chemical factors on trivalent metal ions in the prevention of calcification of glutaraldehyde treated biological tissue has been explored. The results indicate that the chemical link lies in the hard character of the trivalent metal ions. Metal ions with the hardest character appear to have the best chance of reacting with oxygen atoms of(More)
