Continuous erythropoiesis receptor activator (CERA) for the anaemia of chronic kidney disease.

Continuous erythropoiesis receptor activator (CERA) is a newer, longer acting ESA which might be preferred to other ESAs (epoetin or darbepoetin) based on its lower frequency of administration. Different dosing requirements and molecular characteristics of CERA compared with other ESAs may lead to different health outcomes (mortality, cardiovascular events, quality of life) in people with anaemia and chronic kidney disease (CKD).


LC-HRMS-based metabolomic approach for the detection of CERA's effects in horse doping control.

Erythropoiesis Stimulating Agents (ESAs) were developed for therapeutic purposes to stimulate red blood cell (RBC) production. Consequently, tissue oxygenation is enhanced as athlete's endurance and ESAs misuse now benefits doping. Our hypothesis is that most of ESAs should have similar mechanisms and thus have the same effects on metabolism. Studying the metabolome variations could allow suspecting the use of any ESAs with a single method by targeting their effects. In this objective, a metabolomic study w...

Stability of bacteriophages in burn wound care products.

Bacteriophages could be used along with burn wound care products to enhance antimicrobial pressure during treatment. However, some of the components of the topical antimicrobials that are traditionally used for the prevention and treatment of burn wound infection might affect the activity of phages. Therefore, it is imperative to determine the counteraction of therapeutic phage preparations by burn wound care products before application in patients. Five phages, representatives of two morphological families...

Bluegenics: Bioactive Natural Products of Medicinal Relevance and Approaches to Their Diversification.

Nature provides a valuable resource of medicinally relevant compounds, with many antimicrobial and antitumor agents entering clinical trials being derived from natural products. The generation of analogues of these bioactive natural products is important in order to gain a greater understanding of structure activity relationships; probing the mechanism of action, as well as to optimise the natural product's bioactivity and bioavailability. This chapter critically examines different approaches to generating ...

The complex dynamics of products and its asymptotic properties.

We analyse global export data within the Economic Complexity framework. We couple the new economic dimension Complexity, which captures how sophisticated products are, with an index called logPRODY, a measure of the income of the respective exporters. Products' aggregate motion is treated as a 2-dimensional dynamical system in the Complexity-logPRODY plane. We find that this motion can be explained by a quantitative model involving the competition on the markets, that can be mapped as a scalar field on the ...

Porcine blood used as ingredient in meat productions may serve as a vehicle for hepatitis E virus transmission.

The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the use of porcine blood(products) in food could be a risk for a hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection. HEV RNA was detected in 33/36 batches of (non-heated) liquid products and in 7/24 spray dried powder products. Contamination levels varied among the products, but were highest in liquid whole blood, plasma and fibrinogen reaching levels of 2.2×10(2) to 2.8×10(2) HEV genome copies per 0.2g. Sequence analyses revealed genotype 3 strains, of which two wer...

Prediction of acute inhalation toxicity using in vitro lung surfactant inhibition.

Private consumers and professionals may experience acute inhalation toxicity after inhaling aerosolized impregnation products. The distinction between toxic and non-toxic products is difficult to make for producers and product users alike, as there is no clearly described relationship between the chemical composition of the products and induction of toxicity. The currently accepted method for determination of acute inhalation toxicity is based on experiments on animals; it is time-consuming, expensive and c...

Is the European regulatory framework sufficient to assure the safety of citizens using health products containing nanomaterials?

The growing application of nanomaterials in healthcare products (i.e., cosmetics, medical devices, and medicinal products) has encouraged the upgrade of the regulatory framework within the European Community (EC) to better control their use and manage the risk of negative effects on human health and environment. Unfortunately, despite the efforts of European Authorities, the current legislation is still stratified and several criticisms remain because of the lack of well-established scientific knowledge on ...

How to Control the Discharge Products in Na-O2 Cells: Direct Evidence toward the Role of Functional Groups at the Air Electrode Surface.

Sodium-oxygen batteries have received a significant amount of research attention as a low-overpotential alternative to lithium-oxygen. However, the critical factors governing the composition and morphology of the discharge products in Na-O2 cells are not thoroughly understood. Here we show that oxygen containing functional groups at the air electrode surface have a substantial role on the electrochemical reaction mechanisms in Na-O2 cells. Our results show that presence of functional groups at the air elect...

Synergistic action between extracellular products from white-rot fungus and cellulase significantly improves enzymatic hydrolysis.

With a set of perfect extracellular lignocellulolytic enzymes, white-rot fungus has been recognized as playing an important role in the degradation of lignocellulose materials, which leads to the possibility of creating a composite enzymatic system with high hydrolysis efficiency in vitro. Echinodontium taxodii is a promising white-rot fungus for biological pretreatment. In this study, we extracted the extracellular products of E. taxodii under solid-state fermentation conditions, mixed the extracellular pr...

Highly porous regenerated cellulose hydrogel and aerogel prepared from hydrothermal synthesized cellulose carbamate.

Here, a stable derivative of cellulose, called cellulose carbamate (CC), was produced from Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus) core pulp (KCP) and urea with the aid of a hydrothermal method. Further investigation was carried out for the amount of nitrogen yielded in CC as different urea concentrations were applied to react with cellulose. The effect of nitrogen concentration of CC on its solubility in a urea-alkaline system was also studied. Regenerated cellulose products (hydrogels and aerogels) were fabricated th...

Impact of higher-order heme degradation products on hepatic function and hemodynamics.

While, traditionally, biliverdin and bilirubin are considered end products of heme catabolism, there is evidence for further degradation to diverse bioactive products. As such, Z-BOX A and Z-BOX B arise upon oxidation with unknown implications for hepatocellular function and integrity. We studied the impact of Z-BOX A and B on hepatic functions and explored their alterations in health and cholestatic conditions.
