Virulence and Comparison of Methods for Detection of Biofilm Formation by Escherichia coli Isolated from Retail Meat in Tunisia

The virulent Escherichia coli strains are responsible for extraintestinal infections. However, no past studies have been undertaken via the presence of virulence genes, ability of biofilms formation and the frequency of Escherichia coli pathovars recovered from different butcheries and slaughterhouses in Tunisia. The aims of this study was to investigate 1-) the prevalence of pathogenic E. coli strains isolated from bovine, ovine, and poultry meat in Tunisia, 2-) to determinate the antibiotic resistance profiles, and 3-) to determine their biofilm-forming ability by three phenotypic methods .Totally, 36 E. coli isolates from meat of healthy animals (bovines, ovine, and chickens) collected from different butcheries and slaughterhouses were investigated by searching by PCR genes encoding virulence factors (hlyA, stx1, stx2, fimH, papC, eaeAet papG allèle III, ibeA, iutA, and antibiotic susceptibility testing. Biofilm production was detected by three phenotypic: Congo Red Agar (CRA) method, tube method (TM) and tissue culture plate (TCP) method. In addition, the genetic relationship of isolates was determined by PFGE.

The Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment and Its Impact on the Structural Properties and the Isotopic Abundance Ratio of Cefazolin Sodium

Cefazolin sodium is a broad-spectrum antibiotic useful for the treatment of many Gram-positive and some Gram-negative bacterial infections. This study was designed to investigate the impact of the Trivedi Effect® on the structural properties and the isotopic abundance ratio of cefazolin sodium using LC-MS and GC-MS spectroscopy. Cefazolin sodium sample was divided into two parts, one part of cefazolin sodium was considered as control

Multiphysics Coupled Modeling of Coal Seam Fracture Stimulation Under Highly Pressurized Gas Impact Loading

3D gas-solid coupled symmetrical numerical model was developed on the basis of multiphysics finite element platform to study coal seam fracture stimulation under the high pressure gas impact loading generated by the highly pressurized multi-discharge carbon dioxide gas fracturing technique to improve pre gas drainage efficiency. The purposes of this study are to understand the natural and operational factors contribute to coal seam fracture stimulation and improvement of coal seam gas drainage efficiency and the interaction of these parameters.

Impact of Inflammation on Atrial Fibrillation in patients with Metabolic Syndrome

Inflammation has been involved in the pathogenesis of both metabolic syndrome (MS) and atrial fibrillation (AF). The magnitude of elevations in plasma C-reactive protein (CRP) a marker of inflammation is probably related to atrial structural remodeling and impaired atrial function. In patient with MS, limited data exist regarding impact of plasma levels of inflammatory markers, such as C-reactive protein on the: type of AF and atrial structural and functional remodeling.

Application of CCASNS with iVNS in The Treatment of Cerebral Palsy with DrugRefractory Epilepsy

The aim of this study was to investigate the safety and feasibility of common carotid artery sympathetic nerve network stripping (CCASNS) combined with implanted vagus nerve stimulation (iVNS) for seizure control in children with cerebral palsy with refractory epilepsy. We reviewed the medical records of children with cerebral palsy with drugrefractory epilepsy treated at the Fifth Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University from September 2015 to June 2019.

Comparative Effect of a High Fat with or without High Levels of Sucrose Diets on Peripheral Neuropathy in C57BL/6J Mice

Feeding mice a diet containing high fat and high sucrose has been promoted as a good model for type 2 diabetes. This study sought to determine the effect of feeding mice a high fat and high sucrose diet on neuropathy compared to mice fed only a high fat diet and mice fed a high diet and treated with streptozotocin.

Catheter Based Renal Sympathetic Denervation by Segmental Endoluminal Laser Radiation in a Pig Model: Anatomical and Histopathological Results

For renal sympathetic laser denervation (RSLD) we have tested endoluminal, segmental, laser catheter radiation of renal arteries by using continuous wave 1064nm Nd:YAG laser light. A total of 74 laser impacts at 15 to 20W/15-80 s (4.5 to 30 J/mm²) were applied in the left (n=34) and the right (n=40) renal artery in 6 anesthetized healthy pigs by using the open irrigated laser catheter RytmoLas® (CE 0481), introduced via the femoral artery and manipulated under X-ray control towards the renal arteries by means of a steerable AGILIS sheath.

Interleukins Indicators Impacting the Outcomes of Ischemic Stroke

A prospective clinical cohort study covers 108 IS patients. 93 (86,1%) patients were released from the hospital with improvements, but 15 (13,9%) patients did not survive. The study was carried out in the most acute (1st day of hospitalization) and acute (7 days of hospitalization) phases of the IS. The level of interleukins in blood serum was defined by enzyme immunoassay method.
