Effects of astaxanthin on antioxidant capacity of golden pompano (Trachinotus ovatus) in vivo and in vitro

The objective of this research was to study the effect of astaxanthin (AST) on growth performance and antioxidant capacity in golden pompano (Trachinotus ovatus) both in vivo and in vitro. In the in vivo study, two diets were formulated with or without astaxanthin supplementation (D1 and D2; 0 and 200 mg/kg) to feed fish for 6 weeks. In the in vitro study, cells from hepatopancreas ...

Hydraulic conductivity and compressibility characteristics of bentonite enriched soils as a barrier material for landfills

An experimental program was undertaken for the index and engineering properties (compaction, hydraulic conductivity and consolidation) of various mix proportions of sand, silt and coal ash with bentonite as an admixture to act as a barrier material for landfills. Thirty-four mixes were tested in all with different categories of mixes comprising of bentonite–sand, ...

‘Luisteren met al je zintuigen’

Persoonsgerichte zorg stelt de relatie met de cliënt centraal. De zorgverlener biedt ruimte voor wensen, vragen en gevoelens van de patiënt. En dat is in de praktijk niet altijd makkelijk, betoogt dr. Gaby Jacobs van Fontys Hogeschool Eindhoven.

Investigations for obtaining desired strength of Nylon6 and Fe powder-based composite wire for FDM feedstock filament

In the present work, an effort has been made for modelling the peak strength of Nylon6-Fe powder composite-based feedstock filament (wire) for fused deposition modelling (FDM) process. The developed filament has been used to prepare functional prototypes with ferromagnetic characteristics. The methodology involves the use of historical data approach of response surface methodology ...

Non-isothermal stability by linear heating: a fast method for preformulation stability screening of drugs at the discovery and development interface

The non-isothermal method for prediction of chemical stability of pharmaceuticals has been discussed in the literature for almost half a century but it has not yet been systematically evaluated. The purpose of this study was to carry out a comprehensive experimental evaluation of the non-isothermal method against the conventional isothermal method for a fast preformulation ...

Persoonsgerichte zorg

Het thema van het dossier van deze aflevering is ‘Persoonsgerichte Zorg’. Daar blijken velen in Nederland mee bezig te zijn, veelal nog in een experimenteerstadium. De woorden ‘de cliënt centraal’ zijn weliswaar overal terug te vinden, maar deze worden in werkelijkheid nog weinig gepraktiseerd.

Vancomycin-loaded HPMC microparticles embedded within injectable thermosensitive chitosan hydrogels

Antibiotic use is an essential method for the treatment of bacterial infections. In certain cases, antibiotics are not effective because of the distribution problems caused by physiological barriers in the body. Such problems are thought to be minimized by development of sustained release systems which involve implantation of antibiotic loaded polymeric systems directly to the site ...

Correlated GNSS and temperature measurements at 10-minute intervals on the Severn Suspension Bridge

Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data were gathered on the 998-m-long Severn Suspension Bridge main span. The antennas were located on the tops of the four support towers, as well as five locations on the suspension cables; data were gathered at rates of 10 and 20 Hz. In addition, air and steel temperatures were gathered every 10 min. The GNSS data were processed in an On ...

The Case of the Suzhou Hospital of National Medicine (1939–41): War, Medicine, and Eastern Civilization

This article explores the founding of the Suzhou Hospital of National Medicine in 1939 during the Japanese occupation of Suzhou. We argue that the hospital was the culmination of a period of rich intellectual exchange between traditional Chinese and Japanese physicians in the early twentieth century and provides important insights into the modern development of medicine in both ...
