A highly sensitive, non-invasive, and rapid HBV (Hepatitis B virus) screening method combining membrane protein purification with silver nanoparticle-based surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopy was developed in this study. Reproducible serum protein SERS spectra were obtained from cellulose acetate membrane-purified human serum from 94 HBV patients and 89 normal groups. Tentative assignments of serum protein SERS spectra showed that the HBV patients primarily led to specific biomedical changes of serum protein. Principal components analysis and linear discriminate analysis were introduced to analyse the obtained spectra, with the diagnostic sensitivity of 92.6% and specificity of 77.5% were achieved for differentiating HBV patients from normal groups.

A modified cellulose acetate, modified chitosan, titanium dioxide membrane (MCA-MCS-TiO) was prepared for oil-water emulsion separation and Cu(II) adsorption. This membrane shows excellent hydrophilic...
In this study, cellulose pulp and urea were used to synthesize cellulose carbamate (nitrogen content reaches 4.5%) by low-cost and environmentally friendly solid-liquid phase method. Cellulose carbama...
A new sustainable synthetic method for cellulose acetate was developed by a combination of I-catalyzed solid-liquid acetylation of cellulose and a milling process reducing the crystallinity of cellulo...
Solar-driven interfacial water evaporation is regarded as an effective, renewable, and environment-friendly technology for clean water production. However, bio-fouling caused by the nonspecific intera...
It is still a challenge to solve the matrix interferences in veterinary drug residue analysis. In this study, we reported a thin layer chromatography (TLC)-high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC...
The use of extracorporeal blood purification therapies (EBPT) is becoming increasingly widespread worldwide in everyday clinical practice, particularly in the critical care setting. Noneth...
To determine the effects of a commercially available dietary modification plus nutritional supplement regimen, the Standard Process 21 day Purification Program (SPPP), on serum lipids, C-r...
Sepsis is a major cause of death in Intensive Care Units and therefore finding new therapies to improve survival rates and limit morbidity is a major goal. Over the past decades, blood pur...
In post-dilution haemodiafiltration only synthetic membranes have been used to date. The allergy problems described with these membranes require the development of other membranes capable...
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of four dressings (covers) namely: gauze with petrolatum , cellulose acetate with petrolatum , pure carboxymethylcellulose with silver...

The analysis of an activity, procedure, method, technique, or business to determine what must be accomplished and how the necessary operations may best be accomplished.
A type of ion exchange chromatography using diethylaminoethyl cellulose (DEAE-CELLULOSE) as a positively charged resin. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
A membrane or barrier with micrometer sized pores used for separation purification processes.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
