Bacterial biofilms are responsible for most clinical infections and show increased antimicrobial resistance. In this study, molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were developed to specifically capture prototypical quorum sensing autoinducers [i.e., N-(3-oxododecanoyl)-L-homoserine lactone (3-oxo-C12AHL)], interrupt quorum sensing, and subsequently inhibit biofilm formation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an important human nosocomial pathogen. The synthesis of MIPs was optimized by considering the amount and type of the functional monomers itaconic acid (IA) and 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA)...

Hemolysis (from the Greek word: hemolysis: hema = blood + lysis = liberation) is a medical term that describes red blood cell's destruction by mechanisms of lysis of the membrane. An hemolytic anemia occurs when excessive destruction of red blood cells overwhelms bone marrow's capacity of regeneration. Although anemia is frequently associated with an oncologic disease, hemolytic anemia is rarely diagnosed in oncologic patients. Consequently, a massive hemolysis can be quickly deleterious and often fatal. An early diagnosis can improve survival and can be made with inexpensive tests...

The cyclic brush polymers, due to the unique topological structure, have shown in the previous studies higher delivery efficacy than the bottlebrush analogues as carriers for drug and gene transfer. However, to the best of knowledge, the preparation of reduction-sensitive cyclic brush polymers for drug delivery applications remains unexplored. For this purpose, a reduction-sensitive amphiphilic cyclic brush copolymer, poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate-g-poly(ε-caprolactone)-disulfide link-poly(oligoethyleneglycol methacrylate)) (P(HEMA-g-PCL-SS-POEGMA)) with reducible block junctions bridging the hydrophobic PCL middle layer and the hydrophilic POEGMA outer corona is designed and synthesized successfully in this study via a "grafting from" approach using sequential ring-opening polymerization (ROP) and atom transfer free radical polymerization (ATRP) from a cyclic multimacroinitiator PHEMA...

5-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA) is a non-protein amino acid with a significant potential for cancer treatment and plant stress resistance. Microbial fermentation has gradually replaced the traditional chemical-based method for ALA production, thus increasing the need for high-ALA-producing strains. In this study, we engineered the glutamate producing strain, Corynebacterium glutamicum S9114, for ALA production. To efficiently convert l-glutamate to ALA, hemA and hemL from Salmonella typhimurium and Escherichia coli were tandemly overexpressed...

Incomplete curing of dental fillings may lead to leakage of methacrylate/acrylate monomers, which may come in contact with different cells of the immune system in oral tissues. Very little is known about the different immunologic effects caused by these methacrylates/acrylates. The objective of the present study was to study if and how the methacrylate/acrylate monomers ethyl methacrylate (EMA) and diethylene glycol diacrylate (DEGDA) affect the immune system in vivo and in vitro in comparison to 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and triethylene glycol dimethacrylate (TEGDMA)...

BACKGROUND:  Sessile serrated polyps (SSPs) are important precursors of colorectal carcinoma and interval cancer. Large SSPs (≥ 20 mm) outside the definition of serrated polyposis syndrome (SPS) have not been studied in comparison with SPS. We aimed to describe the characteristics of patients with large SSPs in this context. METHODS:  Patients with at least one SSP (≥ 20 mm) were eligible. Data from three consecutive colonoscopies were used to compare clinical and endoscopic characteristics in three patient groups: SPS, a solitary large SSP, and patients with at least two SSPs without fulfilling the criteria for SPS (oligo-SSP)...

Mast cells (MCs) have been discovered over 130 years ago; their function was almost exclusively linked to allergic affections. At the time being, it is well known that MCs possess a great variety of roles, in both physiologic and pathologic conditions. In the oral tissues, MCs release different pro-inflammatory cytokines and tumor necrosis factor-alpha that promote leukocyte infiltration in various inflammatory states of the oral cavity. These cells play a key role in the inflammatory process and, as a consequence, their number changes in different pathologic conditions of the oral cavity, such as gingivitis and periodontitis...

Background: Factor VIII (FVIII) replacement is standard of care for patients with hemophilia A (HemA); however, patient response does not always correlate with FVIII levels. We hypothesize this may be in part due to the physical properties of clots and contributions of fibrin, platelets, and erythrocytes, which may be important for hemostasis. Objective: To understand how FVIII contributes to effective hemostasis in terms of clot structure and mechanical properties...

In this study, poly-l-lysine (PLL) immobilized PHEMA cryogel was designed for the specific bilirubin removal from human plasma. The surface of PHEMA cryogels is surrounded by PLL chains to enhance specific binding of bilirubin molecules via specific complementary electrostatic interactions. The functionalization of the PHEMA cryogel was carried out by direct coupling of PLL to pre-activated OH-group of the HEMA alcohol units via carbodiimide activation. Prior to removal of bilirubin from human plasma, the optimization parameters including, initial bilirubin concentration, flow rate, temperature, ionic strength, and adsorption rates on adsorption of PLL-PHEMA cryogel were investigated from the aqueous medium...
