BACKGROUND The nature of influenza viral shedding during naturally acquired infection is not well understood. METHODS A cohort study was conducted in Hutterite colonies in Alberta, Canada. Flocked nasal swabs were collected during 3 influenza seasons (2007-2008 to 2009-2010) from both symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals infected with influenza.(More)
Twenty-two different triazoles were prepared to examine the anti-Trichomonas vaginalis structure-activity relationships (SAR) within the β-lactam-isatin-triazole conjugate family. The compounds were synthesized by copper-catalyzed 'click chemistry.'In vitro activity against T. vaginalis was determined at 10 and 100 μM for each compound, with eighteen of the(More)
Ficus carica fiber based activated carbon (FCAC) was used as a potential adsorbent for Cr(VI) removal from aqueous system. The adsorbent was prepared by carbonization of F. carica fiber followed by H3PO4 activation under microwave radiations. The activated carbon was characterized using scanning electron microscopy and Fourier transformer infrared(More)
Coccidiosis is severe disease and important from an economic point of view in poultry industry. So, proper control measures should be followed for its prevention of occurrence. Control measures include good husbandry, as a prime requirement and the use of anticoccidial drugs for both prophylaxis and treatment. For the drug to be effective anticoccidial, it(More)
The manuscript describes the synthesis of novel 1,2,3-triazole tethered β-lactam-chalcone bifunctional hybrids via click chemistry approach utilizing azide-alkyne cycloaddition reactions and their evaluation as anticancer agents against four human cancer cell lines. The presence of a cyclohexyl substituent at N-1 of β-lactam ring and methoxy substituents,(More)
INTRODUCTION Duplex ultrasound facilitates bedside diagnosis and hence timely patient care. Its uptake has been hampered by training and accreditation issues. We have developed an assessment tool for Duplex arterial stenosis measurement for both simulator and patient based training. METHODS A novel assessment tool: duplex ultrasound assessment of(More)
3,4-Dihydroxyphenyl-L-alanine (L-DOPA)-induced dyskinesia (LID) is a debilitating side effect of long-term dopamine replacement therapy in Parkinson's Disease. At present, there are few therapeutic options for treatment of LID and mechanisms contributing to the development and maintenance of these drug-induced motor complications are not well understood. We(More)
Cellulose acetate-zirconium (IV) phosphate nanocomposite (CA/ZPNC) was synthesized by sol-gel technique at pH 0-1 and was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy, Fourier infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and thermal analysis (TGA/DTA/DSC). Ion exchange capacity, pH titration,(More)
