The diversity of isolates of Pyrenophora teres f. teres, the causal agent of net form net blotch (NFNB), was studied using a set of 24 Australian barley varieties. Screening at the seedling and adult plant stages was used to detect and demonstrate the relative importance of resistance at both growth stages. The results showed that almost all isolates vary(More)
Antiplatelet therapy remains a cornerstone of modern management of atherothrombotic vascular disease. For many years, aspirin has been the mainstay of initial antiplatelet drug management in coronary heart disease, while the need for inhibition of other platelet activation pathways has led to the development of various other antiplatelet drugs, such as(More)
BACKGROUND Immunocompromised patients are vulnerable to severe or complicated influenza infection. Vaccination is widely recommended for this group. This systematic review and meta-analysis assesses influenza vaccination for immunocompromised patients in terms of preventing influenza-like illness and laboratory confirmed influenza, serological response and(More)
Vaccination of immunocompromised patients is recommended in many national guidelines to protect against severe or complicated influenza infection. However, due to uncertainties over the evidence base, implementation is frequently patchy and dependent on individual clinical discretion. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the evidence(More)
As many as 1 in 10 patients is harmed while receiving hospital care in wealthy countries. The risk of health care-associated infection in some developing countries is as much as 20 times higher. In response, in many global regions, increased attention has turned to the implementation of a broad program of safety research, encompassing a variety of methods.(More)
Rubisco (Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase) is a Calvin Cycle enzyme involved in CO2 assimilation. It is thought to be a major cause of photosynthetic inefficiency, suffering from both a slow catalytic rate and lack of specificity due to a competing reaction with oxygen. Revealing and understanding the engineering rules that dictate Rubisco’s(More)
Prior to seeking professional medical care it is increasingly common for patients to use online resources such as automated symptom checkers. Many such systems attempt to provide a differential diagnosis based on the symptoms elucidated from the user, which may lead to anxiety if life or limb-threatening conditions are part of the list, a phenomenon termed(More)
