Carbapenem resistance expressed by Gram-negative bacilli isolated from a cohort of Libyan patients (BioMed Central, 2016)Background and objectives: Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and other Gram-negative bacteria are among the most common pathogens responsible for both community and hospital acquired infection. The global spread ...
Life-long programming implications of exposure to tobacco smoking and nicotine before and soon after birth: Evidence for altered lung development (MDPI, 2011)Tobacco smoking during pregnancy remains common, especially in indigenous communities, and likely contributes to respiratory illness in exposed offspring. It is now well established that components of tobacco smoke, notably ...
Correction: Baker, P. et al. electrochemical aptasensor for endocrine disrupting 17β-estradiol based on a poly(3,4-ethylenedioxylthiopene)-gold nanocomposite platform. Sensors 2010, 10, 9872-9890 (MDPI, 2011)Herewith please find corrected structures for Figure 8 in our paper published in Sensors in 2010.
Electrochemical aptasensor for endocrine disrupting 17β-estradiol based on a poly(3,4-ethylenedioxylthiopene)-gold nanocomposite platform (md, 2010)A simple and highly sensitive electrochemical DNA aptasensor with high affinity for endocrine disrupting 17β-estradiol, was developed. Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxylthiophene) (PEDOT) doped with gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) was ...
Determination of anthracene on Ag-Au alloy nanoparticles/overoxidized-polypyrrole composite modified glassy carbon electrodes (MDPI, 2010)A novel electrochemical sensor for the detection of anthracene was prepared by modifying a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) with over-oxidized polypyrrole (PPyox) and Ag-Au (1:3) bimetallic nanoparticles (Ag-AuNPs). The ...
