In present work, the concentration of essential elements, copper (Cu), iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) were measured in ten different juices, to evaluate whether the intakes of under study nutrients accomplished within recommended permissible levels. Flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) was used to estimate and evaluate the levels of essential elements such(More)
BACKGROUND Dental caries is a highly prevalent chronic disease which affects the majority of people. It has been postulated that the consumption of xylitol could help to prevent caries. The evidence on the effects of xylitol products is not clear and therefore it is important to summarise the available evidence to determine its effectiveness and safety. (More)
Surveillance is an important need for a secured and supervised environment. Manual supervision for the purpose of surveillance proves to be expensive and prone to slipups. Many researchers have worked to provide an automated solution to this problem. In this article, we present a solution to this problem using image moments and recurrent neural networks.(More)
Systematic reviews are essential in summarising evidence and providing an indication of its strength and direction. This is why they often inform clinical decision making. Although the quantity of reviews published is increasing, concerns about their quality may sometimes be questioned. This paper highlights the aspects of systematic review methodology that(More)
In the majority of cases of vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA), vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VR E. faecalis) served as the vanA donor to S. aureus. Previous studies that evaluated the risk factors for co-colonization with VRE and MRSA did not differentiate between VR E. faecalis and VR E. faecium. This study aimed to identify(More)
