Efficient isolation strategies not based on epithelial biomarker expression are required to enable non-biased enrichment of circulating tumor cells (CTCs). CTCs undergoing epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) may be prognostically relevant, and importantly are not detected with conventional epithelial based approaches such as CellSearch®. A method for(More)
New silicon nitride coated optical gratings were tested by means of Optical Waveguide Lightmode Spectroscopy (OWLS). A thin layer of 10 nm of transparent silicon nitride was deposited on commercial optical gratings by means of sputtering. The quality of the layer was tested by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy. As a proof of(More)
An ecological study of Anopheles (N) albimanus in a suburban population of Camagüey province was carried out using a human bait in two trap points (indoor and outdoor). A higher quantity of females in the rainy season was observed together with a marked exophagic trend with peak activity in the early hours of the evening outdoor and in the early hours of(More)
A robust and flexible approach is described for the straightforward preparation of multicellular tumor spheroids of controllable dimensions. The approach is based on a one-step plasma polymerization of the monomer allylamine carried out through conformal micropatterning physical masks that is used to deposit amine-rich (PolyAA) micrometer-scale features(More)
The possible relationship between different patterns of esterases and the resistance to various types of insecticides was analyzed by bioassays, biochemical tests, and electrophoresis carried out in a population of Culex quinquefasciatus from Camagüey and in three colonies obtained from it by family selection. The original population was heterogeneous and(More)
The resistance change to different insecticides in Culex quinquesfasciatus strain select at the laboratory with doses of pyrethroid lambdacyhalothrin that would cause a larva mortality of 90% were studied. It was attained an increase of the resistance to this insecticide of 144.5 times compared with the original level, and it was obtained a resistant strain(More)
