Maize is used excessive pesticides during planting, storage and transportation to ensure its production, resulting in pesticides residues on maize that threaten human health. Plasma, compared with other technologies, has been widely regarded as a green, safety and promising technology for surface decontamination to ensure maize safety and quality.

Active plasma lensing is a compact technology for strong focusing of charged particle beams, which has gained considerable interest for use in novel accelerator schemes. While providing kT/m focusing ...
The objective of this study was to understand how J-Plasma® (Bovie Medical Corporation, Clearwater, Florida) surgical energy compares to monopolar, argon beam, and CO2 laser devices in terms of depth...
Tropospheric ozone (O ) being phytotoxic impacts global food security. Present study investigated yield responses and kernel quality traits of two maize cultivars [DHM117: normal maize (NM)] and [HQPM...
Argon plasma coagulation (APC) is a standard modality for the treatment of gastrointestinal bleeding. However, there are no metrics to assess technical proficiency. We aimed to determine if a Quick AP...
In vitro biotransformation of HBCDs by maize cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, responses of CYPs to HBCDs at protein and transcription levels, and in silico simulation of interactions between CYPs and HB...
The purpose of this intervention study is to assess the feasibility and acceptability of soy-fiber-maize versus soy-maize complementary foods on bowel movement frequency, transit time, gro...
Contamination of implant abutments could potentially influence the peri-implant tissue inflammatory response. The aim of the present study was to assess the radiographic bone changes aroun...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, the safety and the main predictors of success of bronchoscopic Argon Plasma Coagulation in patients with hemoptysis caused by endobronchi...
The purpose of the study is to assess the efficacy of photodynamic therapy (PDT) in relieving airway obstruction in subjects with lung cancer compared to treatment with argon plasma coagul...
The purpose of this study is to use transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) to determine the incidence, severity, and clinical significance of gas bubbles during argon plasma coagulation (A...
A method of tissue ablation and bleeding control that uses argon plasma (ionized argon gas) to deliver a current of thermocoagulating energy to the area of tissue to be coagulated.
Ionized gases, consisting of free electrons and ionized atoms or molecules which collectively behave differently than gas, solid, or liquid. Plasma gases are used in biomedical fields in surface modification; biological decontamination; dentistry (e.g., PLASMA ARC DENTAL CURING LIGHTS); and in other treatments (e.g., ARGON PLASMA COAGULATION).
Argon. A noble gas with the atomic symbol Ar, atomic number 18, and atomic weight 39.948. It is used in fluorescent tubes and wherever an inert atmosphere is desired and nitrogen cannot be used.
Endogenous glycoproteins from which SIALIC ACID has been removed by the action of sialidases. They bind tightly to the ASIALOGLYCOPROTEIN RECEPTOR which is located on hepatocyte plasma membranes. After internalization by adsorptive ENDOCYTOSIS they are delivered to LYSOSOMES for degradation. Therefore receptor-mediated clearance of asialoglycoproteins is an important aspect of the turnover of plasma glycoproteins. They are elevated in serum of patients with HEPATIC CIRRHOSIS or HEPATITIS.
Removal of plasma and replacement with various fluids, e.g., fresh frozen plasma, plasma protein fractions (PPF), albumin preparations, dextran solutions, saline. Used in treatment of autoimmune diseases, immune complex diseases, diseases of excess plasma factors, and other conditions.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
