Particulate zinc oxide (ZnO) is a known antibacterial agent. Studies show that reducing the size of ZnO particles to nanoscale dimensions further enhances their antibacterial properties. Polymers, like all biomaterials, run the risk of harboring bacteria which may produce an antibiotic-resistant biofilm. The addition of ZnO nanoparticles, to form a composite, may reduce undesirable bacteria activity. The purpose of the ...

Mastitis in cows is an inflammation of the mammary gland usually caused by bacterial infection of udder tissues. This disease causes considerable damage to the cattlemen whilst reducing the quantity and the quality of the produced milk. An early detection and corrective action can lead to early cure. Although the universal method to measure mastitis levels is by determining the ...
Cord blood mononuclear cells (CBMC) are responsible for neonatal host defense against microbial infections. Among them, monocytes and neutrophils are first- line of host defense cells in bacterial infections. Previously, we reported that herpes virus entry mediator protein (HVEM) ligation by its ligand, lymphotoxin-like inducible protein that competes with glycoprotein D for binding herpes virus entry mediator on T cells (LIGHT; TNFSF14), stimulates adult peripheral blood (PB) monocytes and neutrophils to increase their bactericidal activities. In this study, we investigated the role of HVEM on cord blood (CB) monocytes and neutrophils. HVEM expression was significantly lower on CB B- and T-lymphocytes than PB B- and T-lymphocytes. However, HVEM expression on CB monocytes and neutrophils was similar to PB monocytes and neutrophils. Moreover, LIGHT treatment to CB monocytes and neutrophils enhanced CC chemokine receptor 1 (CCR1) and intracellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1, CD54) expressions, which are used for cell migration during bacterial infections. These results suggest CB HVEM activation is important in neonatal host defense against bacterial infections.
Particulate zinc oxide (ZnO) is a known antibacterial agent. Studies show that reducing the size of ZnO particles to nanoscale dimensions further enhances their antibacterial properties. Polymers, like all biomaterials, run the risk of harboring bacteria which may produce an antibiotic-resistant biofilm. The addition of ZnO nanoparticles, to form a composite, may reduce undesirable bacteria activity. The purpose of the present in vitro study was to investigate the antibacterial properties of ZnO nanoparticles when incorporated into a polymer biomaterial. <i>Staphylococcus aureus</i> were seeded at a known cell density onto coverslips coated in a film of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) with varying concentrations of ZnO nanoparticles. Samples were maintained for 24 or 72 h. Crystal violet staining indicated a reduced presence of biofilm on ZnO nanoparticle and polymer composites compared to pure polymer. Live/dead assays provided images to confirm reduced presence of active bacteria on samples with ZnO nanoparticles. Development of this technology may improve biomaterial effectiveness for applications, such as endotrachial tubes and implanted biomaterials, which are prone to bacterial infection.
Until a dangerous bacterial infection left her husband near death 3 years ago, scientist Steffanie Strathdee had never heard of bacteriophage therapy. After it ultimately saved his life, however, she not only has become a staunch advocate of the therapy, but also now serves as co-director of the newly established Center for Innovative Phage Applications and Therapeutics (IPATH) at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) (Figure 1).
Mastitis in cows is an inflammation of the mammary gland usually caused by bacterial infection of udder tissues. This disease causes considerable damage to the cattlemen whilst reducing the quantity and the quality of the produced milk. An early detection and corrective action can lead to early cure. Although the universal method to measure mastitis levels is by determining the somatic cell counts per milliliter of milk, the electrical conductivity of milk is a rapid test for checking the acceptability of milk to monitor the effects of udder infection. This work presents the design of a low cost mastitis detector in cows using ac conductivity measurements.
The effective intelligent computational model can reduce the cost of drug design significantly by producing the sublibrary of molecular combination derived from a much larger library. This survey compares the performance of several popular machine learning technique for drug activity. The machine learning techniques introduced in this chapter are used to predict activity of pyrimidines and triazines based on the structure-activity relationship of these compounds. Pyrimidines and triazines are two important inhibitors of_Escherichia coli_dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR). Analysis and prediction of activities of these two inhibitors is very important for finding potential treatment agents for malaria, bacterial infection, and other serious disease. This chapter focuses especially on granular kernel trees (GKTs). GKTs are designed to include previous domain knowledge and voting schemes in order to optimize the performance of the Support vector machines (SVMs) kernels and reduce the training time substantially.
A compact, hand-held device was designed to determine the presence of the C. trachomatis antigen in a sample in under 2 minutes. The point-of-care device uses magnetic assay cell separation techniques involving the molecular interactions between polystyrene beads, C. trachomatis antigen and magnetic beads. In the result of a positive test, a complex forms and induces a color change. In the result of a negative test, no complex forms, and thus, no color change occurs.
Describes modifications to a 13/sup th/ order nonlinear differential-delay model (developed by Marchuk, Petrov, Bocharov and Romanyukha) of the immune response to a viral influenza infection. These modifications include: 1) reflect recent physiological understanding of immunologic processes, 2) clarify variable definitions, 3) incorporate B and T memory cell development, and 4) add the effect of natural killer cells. The model is simulated to show consistency with current theories and understandings in the literature.
The human body is the result of millions of years of evolution during which countless variations and trials driven by a commanding environment occurred. The result is a magnificent display of efficiency, robustness, and complexity. Trying to introduce incredibly simple instruments into such a complex structure is challenging. Because of the complex nature of the human body, specific problems with biomaterial biocompatibility and function are almost impossible to predict without extensive testing in cell cultures as well as in living systems. Because of the extensive nature of these tests, strict regulatory protocols are required to ensure that reliable products are produced. The considerations for the selection of biomaterials presented in this article are fundamental. Before proceeding to the advanced stages of instrument design and implementation, it is imperative that a biomaterial prove itself in regard to these primary issues. As the field of biomechanical engineering progresses and new biomaterials are needed for exciting new designs, these fundamental considerations for biomaterials selection may change. However, the basic principals guiding them will remain paramount to any person wishing to design a functional instrument
The fatality rate associated with severe bacterial infections is about 30 percent and appropriate antibiotic treatment reduces it by half. Unfortunately, about a third of antibiotic treatments prescribed by physicians are inappropriate. We have built a causal probabilistic network (CPN) for treatment of severe bacterial infections. The net is based on modules, each module representing a site of infection. The general configuration of a module is as follows: Major distribution factors define groups of patients, each of them with a definite prevalence of infection caused by a given pathogen. Minor distribution factors multiply the likelihood of one pathogen, without changing much of the prevalence of infection. Infection caused by a pathogen causes local and generalized signs and symptoms. Antibiotic treatment is appropriate if it matches the susceptibility of the pathogens in vitro and appropriate treatment is associated with a gain in life expectancy. This is balanced against the cost of the drug, side effects, and ecological damage, to reach the most cost effective treatment. The net was constructed in such a way that the data for the conditional probability tables will be available, even if it meant sometimes giving up on fine modeling details. For data, we used large databases collected in the last 10 years (1990-2000) and data from the literature. The CPN was a convenient way to combine data from databases collected at different locations and times with published information. Although the net is based on detailed and large databases, its calibration to new sites requires data that is available in most modern hospitals.
