Manufactured titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO2 -NP) have been intensely applied in numerous industrial products and may be a risk for aquatic systems as they are not completely removed from domestic and industrial wastes after water treatment. This study evaluated the osmo- and ionic balance, Na+ /K+ -ATPase, H+ -ATPase and carbonic anhydrase activities and the mitochondria-rich cells (MRC) in the gills and kidney of the Neotropical fish Prochilodus lineatus after 2 (acute) and 14 (subchronic) days of exposure to nominal 0, 1, 5, 10 and 50 mg L-1 TiO2 -NP...

Modified reinforced clostridial medium (mRCM) was developed and evaluated for the differential enumeration of Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus. Lactobacillus bulgaricus, an important species of lactic acid bacteria with health benefits, is used in the production of yogurt and other fermented foods. Our results showed that supplementing reinforced clostridial medium with 0.025% CaCl2 , 0.01% uracil, and 0.2% Tween 80 (mRCM) significantly enhanced the growth rate of L. bulgaricus RR and ATCC 11842 strains as measured by the optical densities of these strains after 12 h of incubation at 42°C...

Post-coordination provides the means to achieve an appropriate content coverage, which is critical in successfully adopting clinical reference terminologies, and thus represent clinical information consistently. However, one of the major problems of post-coordination corresponds with ensuring only clinically sensible concepts can be constructed. In this poster, we present the development of a novel approach to generate a MRCM computationally, in order to facilitate the adherence to the existing guidelines and improve the quality of post-coordination in SNOMED CT...

The butyric acid fermentation, responsible for late blowing of cheese, is caused by the outgrowth in cheese of some species of Clostridium, resulting in texture and flavor defects and economical losses. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of different antimicrobial compounds against vegetative cells and spores of C. tyrobutyricum, C. butyricum, C. beijerinckii and C. sporogenes strains isolated from cheeses with late blowing defect. Minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) for reuterin, nisin, lysozyme and sodium nitrite were determined against Clostridium strains in milk and modified RCM (mRCM) after 7d exposure...

Diagnosis of aspergillosis is often difficult. We compared fungal yields from respiratory specimens using the Health Protection Agency standard culture method (BSOP57), a higher volume undiluted culture method Mycology Reference Centre Manchester (MRCM) and Aspergillus quantitative real time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). Sputum, bronchial aspirate and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) samples (total 23) were collected from aspergillosis patients. One fraction of all samples was cultured using the MRCM method, one BSOP57 and one was used for qPCR...

Rumination describes a detrimental response to distress that involves repetitive thoughts about one's emotional state and its causes and potential consequences. Many experimental studies have shown that induced state rumination exacerbates the effect of laboratory stressors on negative affect. The current study examines whether use of rumination in response to specific real-life events moderates the association between unpleasant daily events and negative mood. One hundred fifty-seven undergraduate participants completed daily diaries for six consecutive days...

Set enrichment analysis (SEA) is used to identify enriched biological categories/terms within high-throughput differential expression experiments. This is done by evaluating the proportion of differentially expressed genes against a background reference (BR). However, the choice of the "appropriate" BR is a perplexing problem and results will depend on it. Here, a visualization procedure that integrates results from several BRs and a stability analysis of enriched terms is presented as a tool to aid SEA. The multi-reference contrast method (MRCM) combines results from multiple BRs in a unique picture...

This study evaluated the effectiveness of the three approaches for treating dual disorder clients who were homeless at intake: integrated assertive community treatment (IACT), assertive community treatment only (ACTO), and standard care (SC). Multilevel Random Coefficient Modeling (MRCM) was used to analyze longitudinal effects and to identify mediators of significant treatment effects. The outcome variables were consumer satisfaction, stable housing, psychiatric symptoms, and substance abuse. The eight mediators were service utilization variables: program contacts, phone contacts, substance abuse contacts, assistance with activities of daily living, transportation assistance, help finding permanent housing, help with emotional problems, and medication assistance...

It is shows that the diagnostic Roentgen contrast media (RCM) in a dose of 2.0 g iodine/kg increase the activity of lactate dehydrogenase in rat blood, the effect decreasing in the following order: iodamide > bilignost > triombrast > peritrast > melitrast > omnipaque > hexabrix. At the same time, the RCM in a dose of 0.5 g iodine/kg (iodine concentration, 0.03-30 mg/ml) and gadolinium-containing magnetic-resonance contrast media (MRCM) in a dose of 0.1 mM/kg (gadolinium concentration, 0.2-1 mg/ml) inhibit the enzyme, the effect decreasing in the following order: bilignost = iodamide = triombrast = peritrast > hexabrix > omnipaque = melitrast = ultravist = magnevist = dipentast...

Salted and unsalted butters with 3 levels of phosphatase were prepared with both raw and pasteurized cream containing 36% fat. Test samples were analyzed for phosphatase by the modified method of the American Public Health Association (APHA) and the official AOAC method, 16.256 (1984, 14th Ed., 1990 15th Ed., 946.02). In the APHA method, weighing of solid frozen butter for testing yielded repeatable results. Addition of 0.0-1.0 mg magnesium to the butter had little effect on phosphatase activity in the APHA modified rapid colorimetric method (MRCM), but caused the phosphatase activity to decrease in the AOAC method...
