In image guided radiotherapy, in order to reach a prescribed uniform dose in dynamic tumors at thorax region while minimizing the amount of additional dose received by the surrounding healthy tissues, tumor motion must be tracked in real-time. Several correlation models have been proposed in recent years to provide tumor position information as a function of time in radiotherapy with external surrogates. However, developing an accurate correlation model is still a challenge. In this study, we proposed an adaptive neuro-fuzzy based correlation model that employs several data clustering algorithms for antecedent parameters construction to avoid over-fitting and to achieve an appropriate performance in tumor motion tracking compared with the conventional models...

AIMS: Several enzymes from mycelial wastes of Penicillium chrysogenum fungal cultures from penicillin manufacture were studied as supplements for animal feeding. METHODS AND RESULTS: Proteins were precipitated with tannic acid, acetone, ethanol or polyethyleneglycol 6000. The levels of the enzyme activities found in the different precipitates were similar. The activities of invertase, beta-1,3-glucanase, lipase and tannase were higher and those of amylase, cellulase, pectinase, protease and xylanase were lower...

Fifty-one fungi from different genera and strains were checked in plate to determine lipase activity in protein precipitates from their autolysed cultures. Each of them was then analysed at 3.5, 6.5 and 9.2 pH units and, as a consequence, basic lipases with high activity at 9.2 pH were found after 1 h of incubation. Only 25% of the studied fungi showed this lipase activity, among them the best producers were fungi from genus Fusarium (47% of fungi had lipase activity). In addition to lipase activity, Fusaria showed a low hydrolytic activity on cutin and suberin...

The presence of chitinase activity without inducers in the enzymic precipitates from the culture fluid of 25-day-old autolyzed cultures of 17 Fusarium species has been studied. In all cases endochitinase and beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase activities were found. The chitinase activity as a joint action of these two enzymes with production of N-acetylglucosamine was also determined. A correlation among endochitinase, beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase, and chitinase was always found. Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. lini, F...

An extracellular chitin deacetylase activity has been purified to homogeneity from autolyzed cultures of Aspergillus nidulans. This enzyme is an acidic glycoprotein with a pI of 2.75 and a 28% (wt/wt) carbohydrate content. The apparent M(r) of the enzyme estimated by SDS/PAGE and Superose 12 (f.p.l.c.) was around 27,000. The enzyme had an optimum pH at 7.0 and was stable in the pH range 4.0-7.5. Its optimum temperature of reaction was 50 degrees C, and it was stable from 30 degrees to 100 degrees C after 1 h of preincubation...

The authors report 9 cases of partial or total lysis of the odontoid peg in rheumatoid arthritis. Retrospective study of 100 cases of rheumatoid arthritis and the data from the literature demonstrate the rarity of these lesions, the last stage of the odontoid erosions which are much commoner. The therapeutic approach is usually nuero-surgical.
