Carbon monoxide, which is generated in mammals during the degradation of heme by the enzyme heme oxygenase, is an important signaling mediator. Transition metal carbonyls have been recently shown to function as carbon monoxide-releasing molecules (CO-RMs) and to elicit distinct pharmacological activities in biological systems. In the present study, we(More)
A hollow cylinder apparatus was used to study some engineering properties of hollow cylindrical sand specimens prepared using the wet-pluviation technique. The refined specimen preparation method displayed good repeatability. Wet pluviation produced inherently cross-anisotropic specimens, with the level of initial anisotropy reducing with decreasing initial(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the effects of the mixture of Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. rhamnosus strain GG, Bifidobacterium lactis Bb12, and inulin on intestinal populations of lactobacilli, bifidobacteria, and enterobacteria in adult and elderly rats fed the same (in quality and quantity) diet. The portal plasma levels of two neuropeptides,(More)
The hollow cylinder torsional apparatus (HCTA) facilitates more generalized stress path testing although it has been criticized on account of the level of stress nonuniformity that may develop due to the curvature of the test specimen walls. The stress nonuniformity that may develop in dense sand specimens (35.5-mm inner radius, 50.0-mm outer radius and(More)
The induced anisotropy of Leighton Buzzard sand under generalised stress conditions was investigated using a new, automated hollow cylinder apparatus. Identical test specimens of sand were isotropically consolidated followed by anisotropic consolidation, involving different magnitudes of the three principal stresses and rotation of the major principal(More)
BACKGROUND Enterococci are now well recognised for their ability to transfer antibiotic resistance and for their association with nosocomial infections, but less is known regarding their relevance in the wider environment. Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium were isolated from a range of agrarian associated sources (low-flow water, septic tank,(More)
During the past two decades, the identification of new scientific developments to improve outcomes in gastrointestinal disorders has been attractive to many researchers. Pharmaceutical industries are now more motivated to introduce novel therapeutic remedies in the treatment of gas-trointestinal disorders. Such disorders have increased at an exponential(More)
Based upon a study of 22 forensic interviews with suspected sex offenders whose criminal conduct originated from Internet use, this paper examines the role of cyberspace in the development of virtual sex offending cases. A framework that differentiates patterns of online behavior of virtual sex offenders from classic pedophilia is presented, which(More)
