Microparticles and Exercise in Clinical Populations
Microparticles (MPs) are shed membrane vesicles released from a variety of cell types in response to cellular activation or apoptosis. They are elevated in a wide variety of disease states and have been previously measured ...
A thermochemistry and kinetic study on the thermal decomposition of ethoxyquinoline and ethoxyisoquinoline
Quantum chemical calculations were used to study the production of ethylene and keto/enol tautomers from ethoxyquinoline (2‐EQ) and ethoxyisoquinoline (1‐EisoQ and 3‐EisoQ) in the gas phase and ethanol at the MP2/6‐311++ ...
Protein‐energy malnutrition during early gestation in sheep blunts fetal renal vascular and nephron development and compromises adult renal function.
(Blackwell Publishing, 2011-12-15)
A poor diet during pregnancy has been linked to long-term health outcomes for the baby, such as an increased risk of diseases of the heart and kidney. We show in an experimental model that recreates a poor diet during ...
Synthesis and biological evaluation of pyrrole-based chalcones as CYP1 enzyme inhibitors, for possible prevention of cancer and overcoming cisplatin resistance
Inhibitors of CYP1 enzymes may play vital roles in the prevention of cancer and overcoming chemo-resistance to anticancer drugs. In this letter, we report synthesis of twenty-three pyrrole based heterocyclic chalcones ...
Theoretical and experimental studies on anticancer drug mitoxantrone
Mitoxantrone (MX) is an important antineoplastic drug used for treatment of different types of cancer with lower side effects. The purpose of this study is to shade more light on the mechanism of interaction between MX and ...
Summaries of nursing care-related systematic reviews: Topical capsaicin for chronic neuropathic pain in adults.
Capsaicin is the chemical in chilli peppers which makes them taste hot. It is used topically to treat pain for a range of chronic neuropathic conditions i.e. where damaged nerves cause pain over an extended period of time. ...
Product authenticity versus globalisation - The Tulsi case
(PLOS ONE, 2018-11-26)
Using the Indian medicinal plant Tulsi (Holy Basil) as a case study, we have tested to what extent the discrepancy between vernacular and scientific nomenclature can be resolved, whether the presumed chemical diversity ...
Mapping Post-Glacial expansions: The Peopling of Southwest Asia
Archaeological, palaeontological and geological evidence shows that post-glacial warming released human populations from their various climate-bound refugia. Yet specific connections between these refugia and the timing ...
Ethnicity and Cultural Diversity in Dementia Care. A Review of the Research
In this review Dr Karan Jutlla identifies research which could offer insights into the challenges and experiences of people living with dementia and their family carers from BME communities, and highlights evidence to ...
