The sporicidal properties of hydrogen peroxide were evaluated at concentrations of 10 to 41% and at temperatures of 24 to 76 C. The organisms tested and their relative resistance at 24 C to 25.8% H(2)O(2) were: Bacillus subtilis SA 22 > B. subtilis var. globigii > B. coagulans > B. stearothermophilus > Clostridium sp. putrefactive anaerobe 3679 > S. aureus,(More)
Quercetin and resveratrol are weak inhibitors of neutral endopeptidase (NEP) and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) activity of the neuroblastoma cell line SK-N-SH. The long term incubation of the cells for 4 days with quercetin, resveratrol and a combination of both substances in concentrations lower than necessary for inhibition of NEP and ACE activity(More)
A complication of tube feeding, i.e. thickening of nutrient solution in the presence of an antacid leading to obstruction of the esophagus, is reported. Three patients on artificial breathing where fed by tube with Fresubin liquid. At intervals, Alucol liquid was given for stress ulcer prevention through the tube.
