Conversion of lignocellulosic hydrolysates to lipids using oleaginous (high lipid) yeasts requires alignment of the hydrolysate composition with the characteristics of the yeast strain, including ability to utilize certain nutrients, ability to grow independently of costly nutrients such as vitamins, and ability to tolerate inhibitors. Some combination of(More)
Several methods using bactericides, hydrostatic pressure, and post-package pasteurization technologies to control Listeria monocytogenes (LM) in ready-to-eat meats have been attempted. In addition to controlling LM contamination, any newly developed technology must have minimal effects on organoleptic properties. The objectives of this study were to: (1)(More)
PURPOSE A simple, inexpensive method to aid in the accurate placement of permanent seeds for prostate brachytherapy is described. The effect of identifying the prostate base and apex cystoscopically relative to registration seeds placed at the beginning of the implant is discussed. MATERIALS AND METHODS At the beginning of each implant procedure a pair of(More)
Efficacy of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) gas in reducing Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Listeria monocytogenes on strawberries was determined using batch and continuous flow ClO2 gas treatment systems. Effects of continuous ClO2 gas treatment on total aerobic plate count, color, and residual ClO2 and chlorite on strawberries were also evaluated. Strawberries were(More)
We report on a 22-year-old woman with a continent urinary diversion in whom acute renal failure developed on ciprofloxacin therapy for pelvic osteomyelitis. Renal failure resolved rapidly once the drug was withheld. Because ciprofloxacin is used extensively by the urological community, we believe that it is important to be aware of this potential(More)
