Detection of picomolar levels of interleukin-8 in human saliva by SPR.
TLDR
The development of the first immunoassay for the quantification of picomolar IL-8 concentrations in human saliva using Biacore surface plasmon resonance (SPR) in a microfluidic channel is presented.
Antibacterial compounds from Glycyrrhiza uralensis.
TLDR
Two new pterocarpenes and 6,8-diisoprenyl-5,7,4'-trihydroxyisoflavone exhibited potent antibacterial activity against Streptococcus mutans with minimum inhibitory concentrations of 1 and 2 microg/mL, respectively, while glycyrrhizol B and gancaonin G showed more moderate activity.
Rapid, Electrical Impedance Detection of Bacterial Pathogens Using Immobilized Antimicrobial Peptides
TLDR
A microfluidic chip for multiplexed detection of bacterial cells that uses antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) with species-specific targeting and binding capabilities and demonstrates great potential as a next-generation, point-of-care diagnostic platform for the detection of disease-causing pathogenic agents.
Detailed three-dimensional analysis of structural features of Myxococcus xanthus fruiting bodies using confocal laser scanning microscopy
TLDR
Changes in the three-dimensional architecture of fruiting bodies and the distribution of the extracellular matrix within the fruiting body during the developmental process were investigated using a gfp-expressing M. xanthus strain and carbohydratespecific lectins or monoclonal antibodies in combination with confocal laser scanning microscopy.
Microwave ablation in the spleen for treatment of secondary hypersplenism: a preliminary study.
TLDR
MW ablation is a safe and effective technique for the management of hypersplenism in patients with liver cirrhosis and ablating more than 40% of the splenic parenchyma may yield better long-term results.
Oral Microbiota Distinguishes Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Pediatric Hosts from Healthy Populations
TLDR
All patients demonstrated a structural imbalance of the oral microbiota, characterized by reduced diversity and abundance alterations, possibly involved in systemic infections, indicating the importance of immune status in shaping the structure of oral microbiota.
Ultraviolet Light Treatment of Titanium Suppresses Human Oral Bacterial Attachment and Biofilm Formation: A Short-Term In Vitro Study.
TLDR
UV treatment of titanium surfaces significantly reduces attachment of human oral bacteria and subsequentBiofilm formation as well as EPS production for at least 7 days, mitigating an unfavorable bacteriophilic cascade and environmental trigger for biofilm formation.
8DSS-promoted remineralization of demineralized dentin in vitro.
TLDR
The results showed that the 8DSS peptide had good binding strength to demineralized dentin and could induce nano-crystals precipitation both on the surfaces and within the dentinal tubules.
