Two commonly used disinfectants, a quaternary ammonium salt and povidone-iodine, were tested for effectiveness against unembryonated Ascaris suum eggs. The quaternary ammonium salt (alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride) had no effect on the Ascaris eggs (10 minutes and 22°C) when compared with the controls in water with egg viabilities of 88.8% ± 3.3%(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of varying hemodynamic conditions on fractional flow reserve (ratio of pressure distal [Pd] and proximal [Pa] to stenosis under hyperemia) in an in vitro setting. Failure to achieve maximal hyperemia and the choice of hyperemic agents may have differential effects on coronary hemodynamics and,(More)
Interleukin-1 (IL-1) is a pro-inflammatory, multifunctional cytokine, which affects nearly every cell type, often acting in concert with other cytokines or small mediator molecules. In rheumatoid arthritis, IL-1 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a) not only promote the inflammatory response but also induce cartilage degradation. It has also been shown(More)
The CUAUV Ragnarök is a new littoral autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) developed by a team of undergraduate students at Cornell University. Built in a ten month design cycle, the vehicle was fully modeled using CAD software and manufactured almost entirely in-house. With a number of new innovations, Ragnarök presents a stronger, lighter, and more agile(More)
