This critical review highlights recent advances in the structurally modified (thio)urea-based receptors for anion complexation and sensing. Modifications of the (thio)urea structure are aimed at a better anion binding in terms of higher binding constant, anion selectivity and feasibility. Major (thio)urea receptors are reviewed as N-alkyl, N-aryl and(More)
The fluoroquinolone moxifloxacin has potent activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis and has been recommended by the guidelines for the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). Monotherapy is not recommended by the guidelines and only a few studies have evaluated the efficacy and safety of moxifloxacin plus standard first-line therapy in treating TB.(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the clinical features, diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis after organ transplantation. METHOD The clinical data of 25 cases of tuberculosis after organ transplantation were retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS Sixty-eight percent of the patients presented only mild symptoms. Fever, cough, malaise and chest tightness were among(More)
An oligonucleotide probe has been designed and compounded for detecting the ethambutol (EMB) resistance gene of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It was placed on a nitrocellulose membrane for use in the reverse dot-blot hybridization assay, with the PCR product labeled with biotin. Analysis was carried out on 82 M. tuberculosis clinical isolates. The results(More)
Developing cavity-based supramolecular hydrogels is in its infancy because not many such hydrogelators are available. Reported herein is our creation of rigid cavitand cyclotriveratrylene (CTV) based hydrogelators from the molecular backbones of CTVs that were in limited cases shown to form organogels. For doing so deprotonable -COOH or protonable -NH(2)(More)
Based on the 1995-1999 Landsat TM images and geographic information systems, this paper analyzed the change characteristics of wetland landscape pattern in the Eastern Yellow River Delta Nature Reserve (an inlet of current flow path emptying into the sea), and related driving factors during the past few years pre and post the Yellow River diverting into(More)
