Second remission duration was associated with remission duration after initial chemotherapy; median second
remission duration for dogs with initial remission duration >= 289 days was 214 days (95% Cl, 168 to 491 days), compared with 98 days (95% Cl, 70 to 144 days) for dogs with initial remission duration < 289 days.
Conclusions and Clinical Relevance-Findings suggested that retreatment with the CHOP protocol can be effective in dogs with lymphoma that successfully complete an initial 6-month CHOP protocol. (J Am Vet Med Assoc 2011;238:501-506)”
“Smooth silicon nanowires (SiNWs) without metallic catalysts have CP-456773 clinical trial been prepared using silicon monoxide selleck kinase inhibitor as starting material by hydrothermal deposition on silicon substrates. Scanning
electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy demonstrate that SiNWs have smooth surfaces and around 170 nm in diameter as well as larger than 10 mu m in length. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy shows that each nanowire consists a polycrystalline silicon core and an amorphous silica sheath. Si and silicon oxide, is proposed, are generated from silicon monoxide under high temperature and high pressure of hydrothermal conditions. The growth mechanism of silicon nanowires is proposed as the oxide-assisted growth mechanism.”
“BACKGROUND: Simultaneous xylose isomerization and fermentation was investigated to improve the lactic acid production from xylose by Lactobacillus pentosus in a novel two-in-one bioreactor constructed by packing the immobilized xylose isomerase (65 g) in a fixed bed reactor (diameter 56 mm x 66 mm, packing volume 154 mL) with a permeable wall, which was installed inside a conventional fermenter (2 L) and rotated along the axis together with the mechanical stirrer of the fermenter. RESULTS: Xylose
(20 g L1) was completely consumed within 24 h in the novel bioreactor, compared with 72 h needed for the C59 cell line control without packed enzyme. The maximum cell density (17.5 g L1) in the novel bioreactor was twice that in the control and the lactic acid productivity (0.58 g L1 h1) was 3.8 times higher. Repeated use of the immobilized enzyme showed that the lactic acid productivity and yield obviously dropped after the first batch fermentation but maintained almost unchanged afterwards. CONCLUSION: Simultaneous xylose isomerization and fermentation significantly improved lactic acid production from xylose by Lactobacillus pentosus. The novel bioreactor made it easier to recycle and reuse the immobilized enzyme. (c) 2012 Society of Chemical Industry”
