We evaluated three antisera and four enzyme conjugates for the detection of Bradyrhizobium japonicum by an indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in microtiter plates. Nitrocellulose membrane sheets were then evaluated as an alternative support medium by using some combinations. Partially purified immunoglobulin G (IgG) or unpurified antisera to strain(More)
The effects of root exudate (RE) treatment on nodule occupancy by Bradyrhizobium japonicum were investigated by a rapid colored-nodule assay, which is based on the observation that B. japonicum L-110 and its antibiotically marked derivatives form dark-red nodules on certain soybean (Glycine max) cultivars, whereas other strains form beige nodules.

BACKGROUND The accuracy of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in non-critically ill hospitalized patients with heart failure or severe hyperglycemia (SH) is unknown. METHODS Hospitalized patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) exacerbation (receiving IV or subcutaneous insulin) or SH requiring insulin infusion were compared to outpatients referred(More)
BACKGROUND Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) devices can present a challenge to health providers given the sheer amount of data collected. A referral-based system using a centralized standard interpretation completed by a specialist could highlight the most pertinent information and provide recommendations.

STUDY Over a four-week period, 1,454 inhabitants of the town of Bochum (567 men = 39%, 887 women = 61%) were screened for cardiovascular risk factors. The sample was recruited from voluntary participants, two-thirds of whom were aged between 50 and 69. RESULTS Age-adjusted mean total plasma cholesterol levels were 223 mg/dl for women, and 218 mg/dl for(More)
