The development and evaluation of a multiplex real-time PCR assay for the detection of ESBL genes in urinary tract infections
(Open Access Pub, 2018-08-09)
Background Overuse of beta-lactam antibiotics has lead to selection for extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) producing Enterobacteriaceae, a major cause of antibiotic resistant urinary tract infections (UTIs). Standard ...
A scholar-activist’s heretic attempts to “eradicate poverty” from a Southern perspective, through disruptive Global Youth Work
(Sinergias - Diálogos educativos para a transformação social, 2020-06)
This paper mainly addresses the reflections, observations and analysis of a scholar-activist, engrossed in challenging intractable international development issues, through the use of a Global Youth Work pedagogic approach. ...
Materialism and Facebook usage: Could materialistic and non-materialistic values be linked to using Facebook differently?
Materialism is a set of human values that places importance on the symbolic value of money or material goods. Furthermore, materialistic values have been associated with Internet usage, and also social media usage. The ...
In vitro and in silico assessment of DNA interaction, topoisomerase I and II inhibition properties of Chrysosplenetin
Chrysosplenetin is a methoxyflavone with reported anti-cancer effect. We tested its cytotoxic effect on the MCF-7 breast cancer cell line, and determined its effect on DNA intercalation and on the activity of topoisomerases ...
The Hopeless University: Intellectual Work at the end of The End of History
The University is being explicitly restructured the production, circulation and accumulation of value, materialised in the form of rents and surpluses on operating activities. The pace of restructuring is affected by the ...
Generation of High-Affinity Molecularly Imprinted Nanoparticles for Protein Recognition via a Solid-Phase Synthesis Protocol
Molecularly imprinted polymers are leading technology in the development of protein biomimetics. This chapter describes the protocol for the synthesis of protein imprinted nanoparticles. These materials exhibit exceptional ...
Application of Molecularly Imprinted Polymers in the Anti-Doping Field: Sample Purification and Compound Analysis
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2020-06-01)
The problem posed by anti-doping requirements is one of the great analytical challenges; multiple compound detection at low ng ml−1 levels from complex samples, with requirements for exceptional confidence in results. This ...
Interaction of Low Molecular Weight Poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) and Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate in Low Surfactant–Polyelectrolyte Ratio, Salt-Free Solutions
(ACS Publications, 2020-07-15)
Coacervation is widely used in formulations to induce a beneficial character to the formulation, but nonequilibrium effects are often manifest. Electrophoretic NMR (eNMR), pulsed-gradient spin-echo NMR (PGSE-NMR), and ...
Reflections on an educational intervention to encourage midwives to work in a continuity of care model – explanation and potential solution
Objective To explore barriers and facilitators for midwives working in a midwifery continuity of carer model, and to assess if an educational intervention could help address some of these barriers, designed to help achieve ...
