Automated external defibrillation in cardiac surgery
Revision open heart surgery may be impeded by a dense network of pericardial adhesions rendering cardiac mobilization laborious or incomplete, and internal defibrillation impossible. External defibrillation, the current ...
Diversity of Burkholderia isolates from woodland rhizosphere environments
Aims: Determination of genetic diversity among UK Burkholderia cepacia isolates from various environmental niches, principally woodland tree rhizospheres and onions. Methods and Results: Genus determination was made using ...
Effects of timing of Leptosphaeria maculans ascospore release and fungicide regime on phoma leaf spot and phoma stem canker development on winter oilseed rape (Brassica napus) in southern England
At Rothamsted during 1997/98, 1998/99 and 1999/2000 winter oilseed rape growing seasons, numbers of air-borne ascospores of Leptosphaeria maculans were often > 4 m(-3) from autumn (September/October) to spring (April/May), ...
Improved PCR-based assays for pre-symptomatic diagnosis of light leaf spot and determination of mating type of Pyrenopeziza brassicae on winter oilseed rape
An existing PCR-based method for diagnosis of the winter oilseed rape (Brassica napus ssp oleifera) fungal pathogen Pyrenopeziza brassicae (cause of light leaf spot) was improved by the development of a pair of primers ...
Detection of airborne fungal spores sampled by rotating-arm and Hirst-type spore traps using polymerase chain reaction assays
Conventional methods for detecting airborne fungal spores rely on either optical identification or culturing and can be time consuming or unreliable. A method for purifying DNA from conventional spore samplers and detecting ...
In vivo evaluation of novel hyaluronan/chitosan microparticulate delivery systems for the nasal delivery of gentamicin in rabbits
Biodegradable microparticles containing gentamicin were prepared using chitosan hydroglutamate (CH), hyaluronic acid (HA) and a combination Of both polymers by a solvent evaporation method. These formulations were administered ...
Protective mechanism of stabilising excipients against dehydration in the freeze-drying of proteins
To investigate the influence of type and amount of excipient on the preservation of the native structure and the biologic activity of freeze-dried lysozyme and catalase
