Some environmental factors are associated with an increased risk of multiple sclerosis (MS). Air pollution could be a main one. This study was conducted to investigate the association of particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5) concentrations with MS prevalence in the province of Pavia, Italy. The overall MS prevalence in the province of Pavia is 169.4 per 100,000 inhabitants. Spatial ground-level PM2.5 gridded data were analysed, by municipality, for the period 2010–2016. Municipalities were grouped by t...

In the present study, fermentative production of bacterial nanocellulose (BNC) by using Komagataeibacter xylinus strain SGP8 and characterization of nanocellulose is presented. The bacterium was able to produce 1.82 g L(-1) of cellulose in the form of pellicle in standard Hestrin-Schramn (HS) medium. The morpho-structural characterization of the BNC using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies, respectively revealed nanofibrillar structure and high crystallinity i...

The current study is focused on the simple synthesis of two novel biosorbent beads: BASB/STMP and CNFB/STMP, derived respectively from bleached almond shell (BAS) and cellulose nanofiber from almond shell (CNF) by means of chemical crosslinking with sodium trimetaphosphate (STMP). These biosorbents were thoroughly characterized in terms of structure (FTIR), texture (N2 adsorption-desorption), thermal behavior (TGA/DTG), morphology (SEM), and surface properties (XPS). The adsorption kinetics of C...

Graphene oxide (GO) has a multitude of applications in areas of nanomedicine, electronics, textile, water purification, and catalysis among others. GO is relatively easier to manufacture and customize as compared with other carbon-based nanomaterials. In the present work, GO was administered intraperitoneally to adult Wistar rats in four incremental doses, i.e., 0.0 mg/kg (control), 0.4 mg/kg (low dose), 2.0 mg/kg (mid-dose), and 10.0 mg/kg (high dose). After 15 repeated doses over a period of 3...

The present work investigates the use of Agave americana fibers (AGF) as a precursor for activated carbon (AC) preparation via chemical activation using phosphoric acid (H3PO4), and the study of the influence of the preparation conditions on the adsorption capacity of the prepared AC toward Alpacide Yellow (AY). The preparation experiments have been conducted at different impregnation ratios: acid/AGF (20 g/1 g, 30 g/1 g, and 40 g/1 g) with varied impregnation times (2 h, 4 h, and 6 h) and at di...

In the present study, an application of cellulose nanofibers has been established for the controlled release of an anticancer drug, i.e., camptothecin. The camptothecin is known for its antitumor activity. However, it has certain limitations like instability, low solubility in aqueous solution, and biological fluids. Firstly, the camptothecin was encapsulated into the cellulose nanofiber complex by adjusting the composition ratio of cellulose nanofibers-camptothecin, i.e., 10:3, 10:5, and 10:7. ...

For hydrogen-based energy systems development, purified hydrogen (H2) is a basic requirement and it can be achieved by using the H2-selective membranes. For having H2-selective membranes, it is a decent approach to embed the H2-sensitive materials in the polymeric membranes. Palladium (Pd) is one of the widely used materials for hydrogen-selective membranes due to its strong affinity towards H2 absorption. In the present work, we have used Pd nanoparticles in UV-functionalized track-etched polyc...

The aim of our study was to analyze the associations between anthropometric measures and high blood pressure (HBP) in Algerian patients. A cross-sectional study was conducted among 785 adults with normal BMI (248), overweight (253), and obese (284), who were assessed with measurement of systolic and diastolic blood pressure, weight, height, and waist circumference (WC). Body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference-to-height ratio (WHtR) were calculated. We released receiver operating characteri...

The Italian Apennines are among the most important sources of freshwater for several Italian regions. With evidences of deep CO2-rich fluids intruding into aquifers in the nearby central-southern Apennines, a thorough investigation into the geochemistry of groundwater became critical to ensure the water quality in the area. Here, we show the main hydrogeochemical processes occurring in the Matese Massif (MM) aquifer through the investigation of 98 water samples collected from springs and water w...

Given a critical water scarcity in arid and semi-arid Tunisian areas and aiming to reduce irrigation water request, it is crucial to identify and apply the best water-saving practices in these irrigated areas. Tomato is a high-water-requiring vegetable crop, thus increasing the pressure on water resources and environment. Its sustainable cultivation in such alarming conditions requires an adaptation of on-farm irrigation water-saving strategies preserving also the crop yield and leading to a fru...
