BMC medicine

Tiffin PA, Mwandigha LM, Paton LW, Hesselgreaves H, McLachlan JC, Finn GM, Kasim AS.
PMID: 27638740

It has been shown that curcumin (CUR), a polyphenol derived from Curcuma longa, exerts a protective effect against gentamicin- (GM-) induced nephrotoxicity in rats, associated with a preservation of the antioxidant status. Although mitochondrial dysfunction is a hallmark in...

Emergence of KPC-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae in Italy.

BMC research notes

Fontana C, Favaro M, Sarmati L, Natoli S, Altieri A, Bossa MC, Minelli S, Leonardis F, Favalli C.
PMID: 20178590
BMC Res Notes. 2010 Feb 23;3:40. doi: 10.1186/1756-0500-3-40.

BACKGROUND: The emergence of KPC-producing K. pneumoniae has now become a global concern. KPC beta-lactamases are plasmid-borne and, like extended spectrum beta lactamases (ESBLs), can accumulate and transfer resistance determinants to other classes of antibiotics. Therefore, infection control guidelines...

Characterization of lapis lazuli and corresponding purified pigments for a provenance study of ultramarine pigments used in works of art.

In this paper, we propose an analytical methodology for attributing provenance to natural lapis lazuli pigments employed in works of art, and for distinguishing whether they are of natural or synthetic origin. A multitechnique characterization of lazurite and accessory...

(1-3)-β-D-Glucan vs Galactomannan Antigen in Diagnosing Invasive Fungal Infections (IFIs).

The open microbiology journal

Fontana C, Gaziano R, Favaro M, Casalinuovo Ia, Pistoia E, Di Francesco P.

Open Microbiol J. 2012;6:70-3. doi: 10.2174/1874285801206010070. Epub 2012 Aug 24.

Invasive fungal infections (IFIs) are serious and often life-threatening complications in patients with haematological malignancies. Early diagnosis and the initiation of efficacious antifungal treatments could affect the prognosis of these patients. The detection of (1-3)-β-D-Glucan (BDG) could be a...
