Detecting antibiotic resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis is becoming increasingly important with the global recognition of drug-resistant strains and their adverse impact on clinical outcomes. Current methods of susceptibility testing are either time-consuming or costly; rapid, reliable, simple, and inexpensive methods would be highly desirable,(More)
Cyclophosphamide (CTX) is commonly used in cancer chemotherapy, which causes immunosuppression and tissue oxidative stress at high doses. As potential protective agents, some polysaccharides were shown to have anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory and/or anti-oxidant properties. This study explored potential effects of oral treatment of Dioscorea bulbifera(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the association between the synovial expression of cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP) and susceptibility variants of HLA-DRB1 shared epitope (SE) alleles and/or peptidylarginine deiminase 4 (PADI4) gene single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS From October 2008 to December 2011, 53 RA(More)
The effects of size and porosity of particles on magnetic immunoassay in a thin channel were studied. Experimental parameters were investigated and compared using a model immunoassay complex of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)/anti-CEA. The rate constant for the affinity reaction between functional particles increased as the size of magnetic nanoparticles(More)
