    Hypoxia-Inducible Factor in Cord Blood of Term and Preterm Newborns

    The Hypoxia Inducible Factor-1 (HIF-1) is a transcription pivotal molecule regulating cellular homeostasis in response to hypoxia. It has been shown to up regulate various downstream genes – e.g. Erythropoietin (EPO) and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) – and has been implicated in the pathogenesis of several diseases involving tissue…

    Apparent Improvement of Airway Injury after Gene-Potentiating Therapy in Cystic Fibrosis

    Patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and suitable genotypes are now able to access gene-potentiating therapy that improves lung function, weight gain, and prolongs the time between pulmonary exacerbations. We report the case of a 74 year old woman who had CF with a R117H gating mutation. Lung function had declined…

    Antimicrobial Potential in Biogenic Silver Nanoparticles Synthesized from Plectranthus zeylanicus

    Out of all metals, silver has been widely recognized for its antimicrobial activity over centuries of years. In more recent times, silver was found to be even more effective in antimicrobial activity when it was at nanoscale. A novel protocol was developed for green synthesis of silver nanoparticles and their…
