Background:Otolaryngology is the study and treatment of disorders of the ear, nose, and throat (ENT).Otoscopy is the visual examination of the ear canal and eardrum using an instrument called an otoscope for the purpose of diagnosing disease. It is routinely performed by primary caregivers, audiologists and surgeons. At present, trainees are taught...
Anti-Infective Efficacy of Histatin-Related Peptide DB2121
Background:In order to maximize resources, biological systems are designed to generate multifunction protein units that serve different roles depending upon need and context. In particular, there are several families of proteins that have emerged with both antimicrobial properties, as well as bi-activity to promote wound closure and healing. Fungal...
New Powerful Tool for Monitoring of Kinase Activity
Background:In the cellular signalling network, many enzymes and receptors are activated (phosphorylated) or deactivated (dephosphorylated) by protein kinases. As a result of these modifications, the function of the protein may change. Many disease processes including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune and chronic inflammatory diseases are ...
Electrochemical Biosensor for the Detection of HIV Enzymes
Background:Globally, there are 33 million people living with HIV. The earliest symptoms of HIV infection occur when your body begins to form antibodies to the virus between six weeks and three months after infection with the HIV virus. Approximately, 22 million HIV tests are carried out every year in the US. Only by being tested for HIV can you kno...
Annexin and its Use to Treat Inflammatory Disorders
Background:Sepsis is a complex clinical syndrome resulting from a harmful host response to infection characterized by the production of tumor necrosis factor–α (TNF-α), a pro-inflammatory cytokine, which has been shown to be one of the main mediators of cardiovascular dysfunction. Cardiovascular dysfunction is common in patients w...
