Predictive modelling of the microbial lag phase: a review.
This paper summarises recent trends in predictive modelling of microbial lag phenomena and focuses on the influence of temperature and culture history on the lag phase during growth of bacteria. Expand
Quantifying microbial lag phenomena due to a sudden rise in temperature: a systematic macroscopic study.
It is shown that the lower boundary of the normal range lies approximately between 22.78 and 23.86 degrees C, and this boundary is no cut-off point, but rather a transition zone, which points out that the mechanism triggering this lag phase is not absolute but may be subject to biological variability.

An update on airborne contact dermatitis: 2007–2011
This review focuses on irritant and allergic airborne contact dermatitis in patients with known or suspected eczema and aims to establish a causal relationship between these conditions and each other. Expand
Modelling the work to be done by Escherichia coli to adapt to sudden temperature upshifts
Aims:  This paper studies and models the effect of the amplitude of a sudden temperature upshift ΔT on the adaptation period of Escherichia coli, in terms of the work to be done by the cells duringExpand
Occupational airborne contact dermatitis from benzodiazepines and other drugs
Healthcare workers (or relatives) crushing drug tablets for patients with difficulties in swallowing are at risk of developing sensitization via airborne exposure through airborne exposure to Tetrazepam. Expand
Allergic contact dermatitis caused by ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate
A 54-year-old non-atopic woman presented at the authors' outpatient clinic with a history of a skin reaction 2 days after the first application of an anti-ageing skin care product, Hydracyd C 20 cream® (Laboratoires SVR, Le Plessis-Pâté, France), who had regularly come into contact with other acrylic paints, without any problems.

Allergic contact dermatitis caused by C30–38 olefin/isopropyl maleate/MA copolymer in cosmetics
Case histories are presented of patients with contact dermatis caused by ingredients in cosmetics and sunscreen.
Allergic contact dermatitis caused by Hedera helix arborescens and not by Hedera helix L.
Treatment with a betamethasonecontaining ointment gave complete resolution of the lesions of a non-atopic woman presented in September 2011 with an acute oedematous and vesiculobullous eruption in a linear pattern on both arms and legs. Expand
