Staphylococcus aureus is a leading cause of skin and soft-tissue infections worldwide. Mice are the most commonly used animals for modeling human staphylococcal infections. However a supra-physiologic S. aureus inoculum is required to establish gross murine skin pathology. Moreover, many staphylococcal factors, including Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL)(More)
An HPLC method was developed to determine dietary fibre in carrots (Daucus carota L.). Primary hydrolysis of dietary fibre residue was performed with 12 M H2SO4 for 2 h at 40 degrees C and secondary hydrolysis with 0.414 M H2SO4 for 3 h at 100 degrees C. For the neutralization step prior to injection, AG4-X4 resin (Bio-Rad) was used. Neutral monosaccharides(More)
Modifications of dietary fibre in beet root during autoclaving have been evaluated by different methods: acid detergent (raw = 1.45%; processed = 1.17%) and neutral detergent (raw = 2.30%; processed = 2.00%), the enzymatic-gravimetric method of Asp (raw = 3.35%; processed = 3.34%), HPLC (raw = 1.42%; processed = 1.60%) and 3,5-dimethylphenol (raw = 0.36;(More)
An aqueous decoction of mango (Mangifera indica L.) stem bark (MSB) has been developed in Cuba on an industrial scale to be used as a nutritional supplement, cosmetic, and phytomedicine, with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and immunomodulatory properties. The concentration of major and trace elements was determined for 16 varieties of MSB(More)
