A simplified determining/identifying method for residual sulphamethazine (SMZ) and sulphadimethoxine (SDM) in milk by using a high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with a photo-diode array detector was presented. Both sulphonamides in cow's milk samples were extracted by only stirring with ethanol followed by an Ultrafree-MC/Biomax as a centrifugal ultra-filtration unit. For determination/identification of SMZ and SDM, a Mightysil RP-18 GP Aqua column and a mobile phase of 25% (v/v) ethanol solution (in water) with a photo-diode array detector was used. Average recoveries from spiked SMZ and SDM (10-1000 ng/ml each drug) were > or = 83% with the relative standard deviations between 1.4 and 3.7%. The limit of quantitation (LOQ) were calculated to be 5 ng/ml for SMZ and 10 ng/ml for SDM, respectively. The values were below the MRL/tolerance (SMZ, 25 ng/ml; SDM, 10 ng/ml). The total time and solvent required for the analysis of one sample were <35 min and <2 ml of only ethanol, respectively. No toxic solvents were used. The developed procedure was harmless to the human and environment.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
