Microbial Control of Structural Insect Pests
Various reasons have prevented the microbial control of structural pests from reaching the commercial development and practical use achieved with agricultural pests. Microbial products have not been very successful on the ...
Nanotechnology-based drug delivery systems for control of microbial biofilms: A review
Since the dawn of civilization, it has been understood that pathogenic microorganisms cause infectious conditions in humans, which at times, may prove fatal. Among the different virulent properties of microorganisms is ...
Chemiluminescence as a PDT light source for microbial control
(Elsevier B.V. Sa, 2011-05-03)
The photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a combination of using a photosensitizer agent, light and oxygen that can cause oxidative cellular damage. This technique is applied in several cases, including for microbial control. The ...
Microbial disruption indices to detect colonization with multidrug-resistant organisms.
(Cambridge University Press, 2017)
To characterize the microbial disruption indices of hospitalized patients to predict colonization with multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs). A cross-sectional survey of the fecal microbiome was conducted in a tertiary ...
Interleukin-15: Its role in microbial infections
Interleukin-15 (IL-15) is a pleiotropic cytokine which regulates the proliferation, survival and the secretory activities of many distinct cell types in the body. This cytokine is produced by macrophages and many other ...
Microbial pest control: experiences of Latin-American countries.
(In: CONGRESO INTERNACIONAL DE CONTROL BIOLOGICO, 4., 2006, Palmira, Colombia. Memorias: control biológico de plagas, patógenos y arvenses en la agricultura. Palmira, Colombia: SRNT, 2006. p.1-3., 2006)
Tannery sludge compost amendment rates on soil microbial biomass of two different soils
(Elsevier France-editions Scientifiques Medicales Elsevier, 2011-03-01)
Composting is recognized as one of the most cost-effective and environmentally sound alternatives for organic waste recycling. Long-composted wastes have the potential to substitute for inorganic fertilizers. We investigated ...
Microbially-induced sedimentary structures (MISS) as record of storm action in supratidal modern estuarine setting
(Elsevier Science, 2013-01)
One of the aims of tidal sedimentology in recent years is to find signatures in the stratigraphic record that help in recognizing basic ancient tidal processes. The present study was carried out on the supratidal zone of ...
Bacillus-based biological control of plant diseases.

Integrated multivariate analysis of selected soil microbial properties and their relationships with mineral fertilization management in a conservation agriculture system
(Taylor & Francis, 2013-08)
The effect of mineral fertilizer application on soil microbial community was investigated in a conservation agriculture system. The aim of this work was to evaluate how mineral fertilization with nitrogen (N), phosphorus ...
