The World Health Organization (WHO) has tagged non-communicable diseases (NCDs) as one of the twenty-first century's major development challenges. NCDs account for over 15 million deaths annually and over 80 per cent of those deaths occur in developing countries and among the poorest populations. Biotechnology presents unique opportunities to improve the early diagnosis and the treatment of NCDs. This review describes the major applications of biotechnology for a better clinical management of NCDs, i.e. the...
Resolution of old problems with new tools seems to be a new way of challenging and finding the keys to innovation. A holistic view of different branches of science and industry, including services for society, is critically important for the development of modern science. The International Congress Eurobiotech 2017 was a special opportunity for such a universal view. In this paper, we discuss the application of different small RNAs, stem cells, epigenetics and sequencing, as well as art and bioeconomy. Our ...
Estimated average glucose (AG) is generally reported along with hemoglobin A1c measurements according to a standard calculation. Given a normal red blood cell lifetime of 120 days, serial A1c measurements at intervals
In conventional DNA-computation methods involving logic gate operations, the output molecules are detected and decoded by gel electrophoresis or fluorescence measurements mainly. To employ rapid and label-free decoding, nanopore technology, an emerging methodology for single-molecule detection or DNA sequencing, is proposed as a candidate for electrical and simple decoding of DNA computations. This review describes recent approaches to decoding DNA computation using label-free and electrical nanopore measur...
Single-cell analysis in microfluidic cultivation devices bears a great potential for the development and optimization of industrial bioprocesses. High parallelization allows running a large number of cultivation experiments simultaneously even under quick alteration of environmental conditions. For example, the impact of changes in media composition on cell growth during classical batch cultivation can be easily resolved. A missing link for the scalability of microfluidic experiments is, however, their comp...
Identification of patients with progressive chronic kidney disease (CKD) and those likely to respond to candidate therapeutics is urgently needed. Functional MRI measurements have shown promise. However, knowledge about the consistency of the measurements is essential to conduct longitudinal studies.
Academic microfluidics has decisively shifted in recent years from the research on phenomenology and proof-of-concept fluidic functionalities to the developments oriented at applications with biology, medicine and biotechnology in prime focus. Significant efforts are made to demonstrate that microfluidics can be used in unspecialized laboratories to perform previously mundane tasks faster and easier, or to venture into new research areas that were unavailable or unattractive when only classical means of mic...
The aim of the study was to assess short-term repeatability of measurements of fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and its correlates in children in the 6- to 9-year age bracket participating in a respiratory epidemiological survey. FENO was measured in two sessions one week apart in 101 children. Participants were divided into three groups: asymptomatic (n = 76); symptomatic (n = 14); and asthma (n = 11). Absolute and relative differences between the measurements, as well as concordance correlation coef...
Purpose To identify the minimum number of measurements required for the noninvasive assessment of liver fibrosis by using point shear-wave elastography (pSWE) and determine whether the use of a reliability indicator such as interquartile range [IQR]-to-median ratio will affect diagnostic performance. Materials and Methods Ten liver shear-wave velocity (SWV) measurements by pSWE were obtained in 232 participants. Interclass correlation coefficients (ICC) between the median of the first two through the first ...
The exact radiographic assessment of the hindfoot alignment remains challenging. This is reflected in the different measurement methods available. Weightbearing CT (WBCT) has been demonstrated to be more accurate in hindfoot measurements. However, current measurements are still performed in 2D. This study wants to assess the use of computed methods to convert the former uniplanar hindfoot measurements obtained after WBCT towards a 3D setting.
Strategies for biotechnology must take account of opportunities for research, innovation and business growth. At a regional level, public-private collaborations provide potential for such growth and the creation of centres of excellence. By considering recent progress in areas such as genomics, healthcare diagnostics, synthetic biology, gene editing and bio-digital technologies, opportunities for smart, strategic and specialised investment are discussed. These opportunities often involve convergent or disru...
This erratum is being published to correct the author's contribution and name of above manuscript by Gurung et al. that was published in Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology (2017, 27: 1639-1648).

Program Area Committee (PAC) 6 of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) provides guidance in the areas of radiation measurements and dosimetry-together forming one of the most fundamental scientific areas of the Council's expertise. This report outlines recent and current activities of PAC 6 to support the mission of the NCRP to provide guidance to the United States on needs in radiation protection and how to address them. PAC 6 continues to respond to this demand by documenti...
In the past few decades, enhancement of animal productivity has been gaining increasing attention among decisions-makers, politicians, mangers, and breeders, because of the increasing of world population and shortage of natural resources. The selection of high productivity animals is the main goal, through the application of genetic improvement programs. The use of molecular genetics has conferred significant breeding advantages over conventional breeding techniques. In this regard, many economic characteri...
The aim of the study was to investigate the components of day-to-day variability of repeated phase contrast mapping (PCM) magnetic resonance imaging measurements of global cerebral blood flow (gCBF).
Pre-procedural TAVI planning requires highly sophisticated and time-consuming manual measurements performed by experienced readers. Semi-automatic software may assist with partial automation of assessment of multiple parameters. The aim of this study was to evaluate differences between manual and semi-automatic measurements in terms of agreement and time.
This study investigates the impact of tube current reduction and sparse sampling on femoral bone mineral density (BMD) measurements derived from multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT). The application of sparse sampling led to robust and clinically acceptable BMD measurements. In contrast, BMD measurements derived from MDCT with virtually reduced tube currents showed a considerable increase when compared to original data.
The primary aim of this study was to determine the inter-system variability of liver stiffness measurements (LSMs) in patients with varying degrees of liver stiffness. The secondary aim was to determine the inter-observer variability of measurements.
