To assess the presence of adverse pathological features at the time of salvage total laryngectomy (TL) associated with oncologic outcome. Ninety patients with persistent/locally recurrent disease and who subsequently underwent salvage TL after definitive treatment by radiation alone (RTO) or concurrent chemo-radiation (CCRT) from 2009 to 2018 were ...

The spread of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus has changed the lives of people around the world with a huge impact on economies and societies. The development of wearable sensors that can continuously monitor the environment for viruses may become an important research area. Here, the state of the art of research on biosensor mater...
Resistance of bacteria to multiple antibiotics is a significant health problem; hence, to continually respond to this challenge, different antibacterial agents must be constantly discovered. In this work, fluoroaryl-2,2′-bichalcophene derivatives were chemically synthesized and their biological activities were evaluated against Staphylococcus aureu...

Arbovirus infections represent a global public health problem, and recent epidemics of yellow fever, dengue, and Zika have shown their critical importance in Brazil and worldwide. Whilst a major effort for vaccination programs has been in the spotlight, a number of aptamer approaches have been proposed in a complementary manner, offering the possib...
Fast and sensitive determination of biologically active compounds is very important in biomedical diagnostics, the food and beverage industry, and environmental analysis. In this review, the most promising directions in analytical application of conducting polymers (CPs) are outlined. Up to now polyaniline, polypyrrole, polythiophene, and poly(3,4-...
In biomedical research, there is an ongoing demand for new technologies to elucidate disease mechanisms and develop novel therapeutics. This requires comprehensive understanding of cellular processes and their pathophysiology based on reliable information on abundance, localization, post-translational modifications and dynamic interactions of cellu...
Despite the development of pharmacy, there are still incurable diseases for which the medicine has not been found yet. Because many diseases are asymptomatic in their first stage of development, often early detection is the crucial factor in combating them. The article describes the process of synthesis of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) which can be usefu...

Most viruses that infect plants use RNA to carry their genomic information; timely and robust detection methods are crucial for efficient control of these diverse pathogens. The RNA viruses, potexvirus ( Potexvirus , family Alphaflexiviridae ), potyvirus ( Potyvirus , family Potyviridae ), and tobamovirus ( Tobamovirus , family Virgaviridae ) are a...
Interdigitated (ITD) sensors are specially adapted for the bioimpedance analysis (BIA) of low-volume (microliter scale) biological samples. Impedance spectroscopy is a fast method involving simple and easy biological sample preparation. The geometry of an ITD sensor makes it easier to deposit a sample at the microscopic scale of the electrodes. At ...
