Bioluminescent Francisella tularensis SCHU S4 enables non-invasive tracking of bacterial dissemination and the evaluation of antibiotics in an inhalational mouse model of tularaemia
Bioluminescence imaging (BLI) enables real-time, noninvasive tracking of infection in vivo and longitudinal infection studies. In this study, a bioluminescent Francisella tularensis strain, SCHU S4-lux, was used to develop ...
Clustering of adherence to personalised dietary recommendations and changes in healthy eating index within the Food4Me study
OBJECTIVE: To characterise clusters of individuals based on adherence to dietary recommendations and to determine whether changes in Healthy Eating Index (HEI) scores in response to a personalised nutrition (PN) intervention ...

Characterization of the Arabidopsis thaliana 2-Cys peroxiredoxin interactome
Peroxiredoxins are ubiquitous thiol-dependent peroxidases for which chaperone and signaling roles havebeen reported in various types of organisms in recent years. In plants, the peroxidase function of thetwo typical ...
Neonatal Diagnostics: Toward Dynamic Growth Charts of Neuromotor Control
The current rise of neurodevelopmental disorders poses a critical need to detect risk early in order to rapidly intervene. One of the tools pediatricians use to track development is the standard growth chart. The growth ...
Twist and shout: a surprising synergy between aryl and N-substituents defines the computed charge transport properties in a series of crystalline diketopyrrolopyrroles
The influence of systematic variation of aryl and N-substitution on predicted charge transport behaviour in a series of crystalline diketopyrrolopyrroles is evaluated. A correct combination of substituents is revealed to ...
PLGA nano/micro particles encapsulated with pertussis toxoid (PTd) enhances Th1/Th17 immune response in a murine model
Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) based nano/micro particles were investigated as a potential vaccine platform for pertussis antigen. Presentation of pertussis toxoid as nano/micro particles (NP/MP) gave similar ...
An exploratory investigation of endotoxin levels in novice long distance triathletes, and the effects of a multi-strain probioyic/prebiotic, antioxidant intervention
Gastrointestinal (GI) ischemia during exercise is associated with luminal permeability and increased systemic lipopolysaccharides (LPS). This study aimed to assess the impact of a multistrain pro/prebiotic/antioxidant ...
Body composition and functional assessment of nutritional status in adults: a narrative review of imaging, impedance, strength and functional techniques
The accurate and valid assessment of body composition is essential for the diagnostic evaluation of nutritional status, identifying relevant outcome measures, and determining the effectiveness of current and future nutritional ...
Wordless intervention for people with epilepsy and learning disabilities (WIELD): A randomised controlled feasibility trial
Objective To investigate the feasibility of a full-scale randomised controlled trial of a picture booklet to improve quality of life for people with epilepsy and learning disabilities. Trial design A randomised controlled ...
