Akira Nakashima, Toshiharu Nagatsu, Akira Ota, and Harry IschiropoulosThis Week Mazzulli et al. Investigated the possible relationship between two events that may occur in Parkinson’s disease : a decline in cellular concentrations dopamine and an increase in aggregates containing-synuclein.-Synuclein mutations in the gene are responsible for some cases of familial PD. A number of factors may affect the initiation of synuclein fibrils. In cell-free systems, interacts with dopamine-synuclein fibrils and inhibited by stabilizing oligomeric intermediates-synuclein. The authors have developed a cellular model investigate the study these interactions.
In the study, researchers studied, if electric currents would be effective in removing at causing a Staphylococcus epidermidis biofilms from surgical stainless steel. Results showed a separation of 78 percent after 360 minutes of exposure to 100 microamps of DC currents, and a 31 percent removal after the reception of the block 100 microamperes flows. The bacteria remaining on the surface was found to be only 2 to 3 percent viable after treatment. ‘We have a method by which bacterial biofilms excited from surgical stainless steel by use of a small electric current to the connection between the biofilm and the conducting separate solve can be described,’the researchers say. ‘This method may be used in combination with conventional pin site care for the prevention and treatment of infections by applying the current between a circular electrode around the pin and the pin itself placed.’.– Helping poster campaigns to enlighten people how to properly clean his hands and coughing and Niesen spread spread of germ.
