A normal-phase high-performance liquid chromatography-evaporative light-scattering detector method employing dichloromethane, methanol, and acetic acid/triethylamine buffer as the mobile phase was developed for analysis of polar lipids (PLs). This method was applicable for analysis of PLs from both dairy materials and soy lecithin. All of the PLs of(More)
During the isolation of milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) from milk, washing is considered the most critical stage in which loss of MFGM components occurs. In this study, using a cream separator, the influence of washing on the recovery of MFGM proteins was investigated. The residue of non-MFGM proteins in the MFGM material obtained after washing was(More)
A wireless body area sensor network (WBASN) consists of a coordinator and multiple sensors to monitor the biological signals and functions of the human body. This exciting area has motivated new research and standardization processes, especially in the area of WBASN performance and reliability. In scenarios of mobility or overlapped WBASNs, system(More)
The milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) fraction refers to the thin film of polar lipids and membrane proteins that surrounds fat globules in milk. It is its unique biochemical composition that renders MFGM with some beneficial biological activities, such as anti-adhesive effects toward pathogens. However, a prerequisite for the putative bioactivity of MFGM is(More)
The main objectives of this study were to (1) determine the individual phospholipid (PL) classes content of fresh meat from Iberian pigs and their respective fatty acid and dimethylacetal composition and (2) assess the effect of different diets (acorn and grass vs oleic acid enriched concentrates) on these lipid species. First, it was found that(More)
Currently, wireless body area networks (WBANs) are effectively used for health monitoring services. However, in cases where WBANs are densely deployed, interference among WBANs can cause serious degradation of network performance and reliability. Inter-WBAN interference can be reduced by scheduling the communication links of interfering WBANs. In this(More)
Accepted: 29/02/2014 Abstract The use of membrane technology as a processing and separation method in food industry is gaining wide application. Membrane separations can be used either as alternatives to conventional techniques or as novel technology for processing new ingredients and foods. Membrane separations are considered green technologies. In many(More)
As wireless body area networks (WBANs) become a key element in electronic healthcare (e-healthcare) systems, the coexistence of multiple mobile WBANs is becoming an issue. The network performance is negatively affected by the unpredictable movement of the human body. In such an environment, inter-WBAN interference can be caused by the overlapping(More)
Chromolaena odorata (formerly Eupatorium odoratum) is used as a traditional medicine in Vietnam (Nghiem, 1992), where its Vietnamese common name is "co hoi." While it has been widely considered a weed by agriculturalists (Holm et al., 1991), the aqueous extract and the decoction from the leaves of this plant have been used throughout Vietnam for the(More)
