In the presence of endodontic gutta-percha cones, several species of bacteria were killed in vitro. Silver points, when compared with gutta-percha cones, were not or were considerably less effective against the target organism. Staphylococcus aureus, in our assay system. Growth of bacteria in serum could be abolished by the mere presence of gutta-percha,(More)
Growth of several species of bacteria was inhibited by the presence of endodontic gutta-percha cones. Microbiologic analysis, measurement of osmolarity, microscopy, x-ray diffraction analysis, and scanning electron micrography were used to identify the biologically active component that slowly leaches from gutta-percha cones. This component is zinc oxide in(More)
BACKGROUND Proquinazid is a new quinazolinone fungicide from DuPont registered in most European countries for powdery mildew control in cereals and vines. The aim of this paper is to present baseline sensitivity data in populations of Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici EM Marchal and Erysiphe necator (Schw) Burr as well as results from cross-resistance(More)
Resistance to QoI fungicides (strobilurins, famoxadone and fenamidone) in populations of Plasmopara viticola (Berk & Curt) Berlese & de Toni developed soon after their introduction in France and Italy. Current resistance management strategies include limitation of the number of applications, use of mixtures and alternation of fungicides with different modes(More)
Cymoxanil has been used for over 30 years to control grape downy mildew (Plasmopara viticola) in European vineyards, prevalently in mixture with other fungicides active on this disease. In the 1990’s cases of P. viticola resistant to cymoxanil were detected using a leaf disc assay. In this study, we establish that the presence of only 1 % of resistant(More)
Introduction Blood clotting is a host defence mechanism that in parallel with the inflammatory responses helps not only protect the integrity of the vascular system but also promotes repair after tissue injury. This process involves a series of orderly steps involving components of the vasculature, platelets (primary hemostasis) and coagulation proteins(More)
Case A 53 year old man with a history of EEG proven epilepsy on treatment with Levetiracetam was successfully resuscitated from cardiac arrest due to polymorphic VT in January 2013. Resting ECG shows RBBB pattern. Ajmaline challenge testing induced typical type I coved ST elevation in V1-3 diagnostic of Brugada Syndrome with polymorphic VE's and couplets(More)
