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++ ...
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 ...
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 ...
Using exploratory factor analysis and Bourdieu’s concept of the illusio to examine inequality in an English school
This article examines how exploratory factor analysis and Bourdieu’s concept of the illusio were applied to a study of an English secondary school in a disadvantaged area of the West Midlands. It examined the attitudes of ...
Does the delivery of diagnostic news affect the likelihood of whether or not patients ask questions about the results? A conversation analytic study
This paper was produced following a collaboration between researchers at Imperial College London, University of Leicester and De Montfort University.
Risk Assessment and Management of Individual's Convicted of a Sexual Offence in the UK
(PABST Science Publishers, 2018-12)

Muslim schools in Britain: Between mobilisation and incorporation
Muslim schools in Britain have emerged as a highly salient issue that at times reinforces, and at other times cuts across, political and philosophical divides. Notwithstanding sustained Muslim mobilisations for Muslim ...
Atmospheric Oxidation of Methyl Propanoate by the OH radical
Atmospheric oxidation of methyl propanoate (MP) by the OH radical has been performed using density functional theory (BMK, BBIK) and ab initio (MP2, CBS-QB3) calculations. The thermodynamic and kinetic parameters are ...
Stearoyl-CoA-Desaturase Inhibition Significantly Reduces the Growth of Pancreatic Cancer
Aims: To determine the potency of Stearoyl-CoA-Desaturase 1 (SCD1) inhibition as a viable treatment option or chemotherapy supplementation for patients with Pancreatic Cancer and how it affects tumour-derived microparticle ...
