An analytical procedure to measure the whole-body uptake of pharmaceuticals in zebrafish has been developed using state-of-the-art methodologies. A sample preparation procedure for 9 pharmaceuticals displaying a variety in physicochemical properties was developed using 10-day old zebrafish (TG898). For an efficient homogenization of the samples and subsequent recovery of the compounds of interest, different amounts of organic solvents in combination with acidic modifiers were added to zebrafish samples. Samples were subsequently processed using a powerful bath sonicator and centrifuged...

Meso-tetrakis(1,2-dimethylpyrazolium-4-yl)porphyrin sulfonate (TDMPzP), a water-soluble porphyrin derivative, was synthesized and used as a colorimetric reagent for Cu(2+) detection on a microfluidic paper-based analytical device (µPAD) using distance-based quantification. TDMPzP showed a high selectivity for Cu(2+) detection in aqueous solutions. When Cu(2+) was added to the TDMPzP under acidic conditions, a color change from green to a pink was observed by the naked eye. Under optimized conditions, the application of this system to a distance-based μPAD exhibited good analytical response...

Sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBD) consist of a variety of clinical entities, ranging from primary snoring to severe obstructive sleep apnoea at the opposite extreme. Although it has no official definition, minimally invasive surgery infers surgery where the procedure is clinically less aggressive and may involve a much smaller incision or none at all. It also implies that such procedures may result in a quicker recovery and reduced morbidity, and that they are often conducted under local anaesthesia as day cases...

The continuous culture of Plasmodium falciparum is often seen as a means to an end, that end being to probe the biology of the parasite in question, and ultimately for many in the malaria drug discovery arena, to identify means of killing the parasite in order to treat malaria. In vitro continuous culture of Plasmodium falciparum is a fundamental requirement when undertaking malaria research where the primary objectives utilise viable parasites of a desired lifecycle stage. This investigation, and resulting data, compared the impact culturing Plasmodium falciparum long term (4 months) in different environmental conditions had on experimental outcomes and thus conclusions...

Food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome is a nonimmunoglobulin E mediated gastrointestinal food hypersensitivity that manifests as profuse, repetitive vomiting, pallor and hypotonia, often with diarrhea leading to severe dehydration and lethargy (sepsis-like symptoms) in the acute setting. An oral food challenge is sometimes performed to confirm the diagnosis and treatment consists of elimination of the food trigger(s) from the diet. We report a case of a 3-monthsold infant with several episodes of food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome after taking infant formula milk with tolerance of another trademark...

Immune checkpoint inhibitors represent the newest treatment for stage IV melanoma. These agents are generally well tolerated, however severe immune-related adverse effects have been noted in a small, but clinically significant percentage of patients. Specifically, sarcoidosis is a known potential complication following anti-CTLA-4 therapy. We present 2 cases of pulmonary and cutaneous sarcoidosis developing in patients with stage IV melanoma. Both patients were treated with ipilimumab and anti-PD-1 therapy, and both experienced good oncologic responses to treatment; neither had evidence of preexisting sarcoidosis...

OBJECTIVES: To assess whether reversing the veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation blood flow (thereby creating a controlled arterio-venous shunt) can be used to wean children off extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. The standard practice for weaning patients off VA extracorporeal membrane oxygenation is to gradually reduce the blood flows delivered through the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation pump to a minimum level followed by either insertion of an "arterio-venous bridge" and clamping of the blood flow to the patient or direct decannulation...

Substrate concentrations generally fluctuate in wastewaters. However, how anammox biomass behaves to overcome the stress of alternating feed loadings remains unclear. Here, we combined long-term reactor operation, batch tests, 16S rRNA transcript sequencing, and metabolomics analysis to investigate the aggregation of anammox biomass under the regulation of c-di-GMP, a key second messenger, in response to alternating feed loadings. We demonstrated that the aggregation process was significantly faster under alternating loadings and was significantly correlated with higher levels of c-di-GMP and extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) production...

Antiretroviral (ARV) therapy, comprising a backbone of two nucleos(t)ide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) plus another ARV, is the recognized standard of care (SOC), which has helped extend life expectancy in people living with HIV. In a quest to reduce lifelong drug exposure and minimize or avoid the toxicity of NRTIs, "NRTI-reducing" regimens have been investigated. This descriptive review assessing the results of NRTI-reducing strategies from the largest randomized trials focuses on virological efficacy, resistance, regimen safety (in terms of bone mineral density, renal function, lipids and central nervous system function) and simplicity...

AIM: Inhaled hypertonic saline increases mucociliary clearance, improves pulmonary function, and decreases exacerbations in cystic fibrosis (CF) but contributes to the already significant treatment burden of CF. Overnight delivery of inhaled medications via a specially designed nasal cannula-aerosol device (Trans-nasal Pulmonary Aerosol Delivery [tPAD]) is an alternative approach. Here, we test whether overnight inhalation of hypertonic saline via tPAD improves mucociliary clearance and assess the tolerability of the device...
