Development of a Novel Near-Infrared Fluorescent Theranostic Cancer Prodrug

Authors : Jake Cui,Yali Kong

With the improvement of real-time tracking and cancer treatment mechanisms in mind, the goal of this project was to develop an anticancerous, theranostic platform that could simultaneously monitor and selectively inhibit tumorigenic growth. A prodrug consisting of a synthesized DCM-NH2 fluorophore and a tubulin inhibitor, Combretastatin A4 (CA4), was formulated, conjugated with a disulfide bridge, and tested with physicochemical and biological analyses.

Transverse and longitudinal matrix cracking evolution in composite laminates: a damage criterion

Authors : Jean-Luc Rebiere

After numerous numerical simulation on the distribution of the stress field in damage composite cross ply laminates we have elaborate an energy criterion. This energy criterion is based on the computation of some partial parts of the strain energy release rate associated with each damage types and for the three loading mode (mode I (opening mode), mode II (sliding mode) and mode III (tearing mode)). In the related criterion, linear fracture based approach, several hypothesis are used to simplify the damage criterion.

Suspended sediment impact on chlorophyll a, nitrogen and phosphorus relationships in Moon Lake, MS, USA

Authors : Scott Knight,Mary King,Charles Cooper

Moon Lake, MS is a 947 ha. oxbow lake of the Mississippi River Alluvial Plain also known as the Mississippi Delta. Land use within the Moon Lake watershed during the sampling period was predominantly conventionally tilled cotton and soybean farming. Water was sampled from five sites, bi-weekly from 1982 to 1985. Analysis of surface water quality reviled loading of nutrients from nonpoint source pollution associated with agricultural runoff.

The Epidemiology Of Myelodysplastic Syndromes Retrospective Study In The Hematology Department Of The Military Hospital Of Rabat

There is no data on myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) in Morocco. Indeed, this disease has long remained unexplored. We present the epidemiological data on MDS of the department of hematology of the Mohamed V Military Hospital for a period of 9 years and 4 months. In this study, we registered the MDS cases diagnosed by bone marrow examinations between January 2006 and April 2015. We classified these cases according to the 2008 WHO classification. Patients with secondary MDS (post-chemo/radiotherapy were excluded from the analysis.

Sensory acceptability of squash (cucurbita maxima) in baking cake

Authors : Ramona Borro, Raymund Gemora

This research study aimed to ascertain the sensory acceptability of squash (Cucurbita Maxima) of varied quantities in baking cake as to appearance, taste, color, texture and general acceptability. A panel of 20 evaluators, purposely picked, from the School of Hotel and Restaurant Services Technology of the West Visayas State University – Janiuay Campus, were utilized as respondents. Formulated in the study were four treatments– three of which used squash at various quantities while as the control variable, one treatment, which contained no squash at all, was used.

Effect of growth regulators on sucker production in exotic varieties of heliconia

Authors : C. R. Reshmi,V.L. Sheela

The demend of heliconias for cut flower trade is increasing day-by-day because of the long vase life, attractive colour and exotic shape. A study was  conducted to standardize growth regulators for enhacing propagation efficiency in  three  viz., St. Vincent Red (small erect type), Golden Torch Adrian (hybrid) and Sexy Pink (large pendent type) .  Two field trials were carried out for this purpose. Based on the results of the preliminary field trial, second experiment was laid out.

Role of the laboratory in the diagnosis of plasma cell leukemia, about an observation

Authors : Anass Yahyaoui,Hafid Zahid,Nezha Messaoudi

The plasma cell leukemia (PCL) is an extremely uncommon malignant blood disorder with a pejorative prognosis. It is defined by the presence of at least 20% of plasma cells in the peripheral blood or an absolute number of circulating plasma cells greater than 2 G /L. It appears under two variants: secondary PCL that complicates known multiple myeloma and primitive PCL that is immediately leukemic.
