Amides substituted with aromatic groups were synthesized and some were purified to create enantiomer pure compounds. The compounds were tested to determine their ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria and the formation of biofilms created by bacteria. Some of these compounds were found to be effective antibacterials and to effectively inhibit the formation of biofilms.

Disclosed herein are materials and methods for creating and/or isolating variants of yeasts especially variants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae that can grow on sugars other than D-glucose in the presence of amounts of 2-deoxy-glucose and or D-glucose that inhibit most strains of yeast from growing on sugars other than D-glucose. Selection media that can be used to isolate such variants include pentose sugars such as D-xylose, L-glutamine and 2-deoxy-glucose. Mutations in the Grr1 and Red genes in some strains also produce variants that can grow on sugars including the pentose D-xylose in the presence of 2-deoxy-glucose.

Methods for modulating inflammation using progesterone metabolites are disclosed. More particularly, methods of administering progesterone metabolites, 6-hydroxyprogesterone (6-OHP) and 16-hydroxyprogesterone (16-OHP) are disclosed for mitigating inflammation in various tissue types in the body.

Expression of Forkhead-box protein A1 (FOXA1), a transcription factor important for the normal development of the prostate gland is thought to be controlled by steroid hormones and GATA-3. Expression of FOXA1, GATA-3 and androgen receptor (AR) was retrospectively analyzed by immunohistochemistry (IHC) in a series of 80 primary tumors and 28 metastatic prostate cancers including 15 matched paired samples. High nuclear FOXA1 expression was seen in 19% of primary tumors and 89% of metastatic tumors (p<0.0001). FOXA1 expression correlated positively with tumor size, extra-prostatic extension, angiolymphatic invasion, AR and metastasis but did not correlate with age, tumor stage, Gleason score, presence of PIN or multifocality, seminal vesicle or perineural invasion and status of surgical excision margins. Expression of GATA-3 was not seen in either normal epithelium or tumor. High FOXA1 expression is associated with development of metastatic prostate cancer. Accordingly, FOXA1 expression can be used to classify patients at higher risk for metastases.

Apparatus and methods for a MEMS-fabricated variable capacitor. In one embodiment the capacitor is a comb drive comprising a plurality of plates interdigitated with a corresponding blades. As the plates move relative to the blades, the capacitance of the sensor changes. The capacitor is sufficiently sensitive to measure respiratory pressure in an animal.

A method and apparatus for extracting tissue samples are disclosed herein. An example apparatus disclosed herein includes a first sidewall and a second sidewall spaced apart from the first sidewall. The example apparatus also includes a track to receive a blade between the first sidewall and the second sidewall. The track is to guide the blade to penetrate skin of a patient to a predetermined depth of invasion.

CD4+ T-helper cells regulate immunity and inflammation through the acquisition of potential to secrete specific cytokines. The acquisition of cytokine-secreting potential, in a process termed T-helper cell differentiation, is a response to multiple environmental signals including the cytokine milieu. The most recently defined subset of T-helper cells are termed Th9 and are identified by the potent production of interleukin-9 (IL-9). Given the pleiotropic functions of IL-9, Th9 cells might be involved in pathogen immunity and immune-mediated disease. In this review, I focus on recent developments in understanding the signals that promote Th9 differentiation, the transcription factors that regulate IL-9 expression, and finally the potential roles for Th9 cells in immunity in vivo. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons A/S.
