OBJECTIVE: Treatment with antibiotics together with local application of antiseptics is common in wound care. We investigated the effectiveness of an antiseptic in two variations: octenidine (Oct) and octenidine+ (Oct+ with isotonic glucose addition). METHOD: Using the agar diffusion test with cultures of pathogenic Staphylococcus aureus and the non-pathogenic Bordetella petrii, we compared the effectiveness of octenidine to the classical antiseptics beta-isodona (povidone-iodine; PI), chlorhexidine (Chl) and taurolin (Tau) alone, and in combination with various common antibiotics to uncover cooperativity between antiseptics and antibiotics...

BACKGROUND: Commercial pharmaceutical herbal products have enabled people to take traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in a convenient and accessible form. However, the quantity and quality should be additionally inspected. To address the issue, a combination of chemical and physical inspection methods were developed to evaluate the amount of an herbal formula, Xiang-Sha-Liu-Jun-Zi-Tang (XSLJZT), in clinical TCM practice. METHODS: A high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS) method with electrospray ionization was developed to measure the herbal biomarkers of guanosine, atractylenolide III, glycyrrhizic acid, dehydrocostus lactone, hesperidin, and oleanolic acid from XSLJZT...

Case 1: A 63-year-old woman with secondary lower limb lymphedema. As it was difficult to detect the lymphatic vessels in the right thigh in indocyanine green lymphography because of thick fat, we tried echography and observed circular structures beneath the superficial fascia. Intraoperatively, we found a dilated lymphatic vessel just as observed on echography. Case 2: A 45-year-old woman with primary lower limb lymphedema. As she was allergic to iodinated contrast medium, we could not use indocyanine green lymphography preoperatively...

Single-photon emission computed tomography with integrated computed tomography (SPECT/CT) systems has been applied in a wide range of clinical circumstances, and differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) is one of the most important indications of SPECT/CT imaging. In the treatment of DTC, SPECT/CT images have been reported to have many advantages over conventional planar whole-body scintigraphy based on its precise localization and characterization of abnormal foci of radioactive iodine (RAI) accumulation, influencing the staging, risk stratification, and clinical management as well as reader confidence...

To date, there are many people residing in areas with high levels of iodide in water. Our previous epidemiological study showed that exposure to high iodine in drinking water significantly reduced the intelligence of children although the mechanisms remain unclear. To explore whether high concentrations of iodide may cause cytotoxic effect and the role of autophagy in the high iodide-induced apoptosis, human neuroblastoma cells (SH-SY5Y cells) were exposed to high concentrations of iodide. Morphological phenotypes, cell viability, Hoechst 33258 staining, the expression levels of apoptosis and autophagy-related proteins were detected...

Treatment with iodine cleanly converts various p-menthane-type phytocannabinoids and their carboxylated precursors into cannabinol (CBN, 1a). The reaction is superior to previously reported protocols in terms of simplicity and substrate range, which includes not only tricyclic tetrahydrocannabinols such as Δ9-THC (2a) but also bicyclic phytocannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD, 3a). Lower homologues from the viridin series (2c and 3c, respectively) afforded cannabivarin (CBV), a non-narcotic compound that, when investigated against a series of ionotropic (thermo-TRPs) biological end-points of phytocannabinoids, retained the submicromolar TRPA1-activating and TRPM8-inhibiting properties of CBN, while also potently activating TRPV2...

The tin-tin bond cleavage of hexaorganodistannanes by nucleophiles is a long known reaction and widely used for stannate formation or stannyl group transfer. Herein we detail our experiments to provide analytical evidence for the existence of reasonably stable anionic complexes [XSn(C2F5)3{Sn(C2F5)3}]- (X = Cl, Br, I, Sn(C2F5)3) derived from hexakis(pentafluoroethyl)distannane. NMR investigations at low temperature lend further mechanistic insights. Thus, by detection of the imposing anion [Sn(C2F5)3{Sn(C2F5)3}2]-, one can surmise that the chemistry of Sn2(C2F5)6 has more in common with the isolobal iodine than with classical distannanes...

The dynamic characteristics of the cavity mirror support structure strongly influence the quality of the output beam. However, the contradiction between excellent dynamic performance and light weight make the design process challenging. To cope with the problems encountered in the original design of a chemical oxygen iodine laser system, this paper presents a two-dimensional adjustable support structure based on spherical constraints with large specific stiffness in the initial design phase. Subsequently, a two-level optimization strategy containing a macro design and a detailed design is adopted to optimize the initial structure...

Edible fats and oils are among the basic components of the human diet, along with carbohydrates and proteins, and they are the source of high energy and essential fatty acids such as linoleic and linolenic acids. Edible fats and oils are used in for pan- and deep-frying, and in salad dressing, mayonnaise and processed foods such as chocolates and cream. The physical and chemical properties of edible fats and oils can affect the quality of oil foods and hence must be evaluated in detail. The physical characteristics of edible fats and oils include color, specific gravity, refractive index, melting point, congeal point, smoke point, flash point, fire point, and viscosity, while the chemical characteristics include acid value, saponification value, iodine value, fatty acid composition, trans isomers, triacylglycerol composition, unsaponifiable matters (sterols, tocopherols) and minor components (phospholipids, chlorophyll pigments, glycidyl fatty acid esters)...
