Rapid Detection of Group B Streptococcus (GBS) from artificial urine samples based on IFAST and ATP Bioluminescence Assay: from development to practical challenges during protocol testing in Kenya. Analyst, https://doi.org/10.1039/c9an01808e

We report the rapid detection (20 min) of Streptococcus agalactiae, Group B Streptococcus (GBS) employing on-chip magnetic isolation of GBS based on immiscible filtration assisted by surface tension (IFAST), followed by detection of the isolated GBS... Read More

Saxitoxin and tetrodotoxin bioavailability increases in future oceans (2019)
Journal Article
Roggatz, C. C., Fletcher, N., Benoit, D. M., Algar, A. C., Doroff, A., Wright, B., …Hardege, J. D. (2019). Saxitoxin and tetrodotoxin bioavailability increases in future oceans. Nature Climate Change, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41558-019-0589-3

Increasing atmospheric CO2 levels are largely absorbed by the ocean, decreasing surface water pH. In combination with increasing ocean temperatures, these changes have been identified as a major sustainability threat to future marine life. Interactio... Read More

Loss of CD36 protects against diet‐induced obesity but results in impaired muscle stem cell function, delayed muscle regeneration and hepatic steatosis (2019)
Journal Article
Verpoorten, S., Sfyri, P., Scully, D., Mitchell, R., Tzimou, A., Mougios, V., …Matsakas, A. (in press). Loss of CD36 protects against diet‐induced obesity but results in impaired muscle stem cell function, delayed muscle regeneration and hepatic steatosis. Acta Physiologica, https://doi.org/10.1111/apha.13395

Aim: The prevalence of obesity is a major risk factor for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases including impaired skeletal muscle regeneration. Since skeletal muscle regenerative capacity is regulated by satellite cells, we aimed to investigate whet... Read More

Journal Article
Yates, L., Csipke, E., Moniz-Cook, E., Leung, P., Walton, H., Charlesworth, G., …Orrell, M. (2019). The development of the Promoting Independence in Dementia (PRIDE) intervention to enhance independence in dementia. Clinical Interventions in Aging, 14, 1615-1630. https://doi.org/10.2147/CIA.S214367

© 2019 Yates et al. Objective: Support after a diagnosis of dementia may facilitate better adjustment and ongoing management of symptoms. The aim of the Promoting Independence in Dementia (PRIDE) study was to develop a postdiagnostic social intervent... Read More
