Recent Technical Developments in the Standardized Separation and Measurement of Extracellular Vesicles
Amy Phillips (1), Robert Vogel(2), and Murray F. Broom(1)

We present robust and practical solutions for the standardization of EV isolation and concentration measurement. EV concentration also needs to have a defined size range. With these solutions, significant improvement in the reproducibility and comparability of results between different researchers is possible.

Amino-Coated Metallofullerene Nanoparticles for Glioblastoma Mutiforme Tumor Detection
Tinghui Li , Susan. Murphy, Kanwarpal Bakshi, Steven LaConte, Zhi Sheng, and Harry Dorn

We report the preparation of a new functionalized trimetallic nitride endohedral metallofullerene, with a cage surface consisting of positively charged amino groups, which is expected to bind more efficiently to negatively charged cell phospholipid bi-layer cellular surfaces and will more readily undergo endocytosis. We now report that this Gd-nanoplatform when subsequently conjugated with an IL-13 peptide, (IL-13-Gd3N@C80(OH)x(NH2)y) exhibits enhanced targeting of U-251 GBM cell lines.

Evidence for Integrating Point of Care Diagnostics as an Integral Part of Primary Healthcare in South African Rural Communities: A People-centred Health System-strengthening Approach
T.P. Mashamba-Thompson, N. Moodley, M.M. Moshabela

Diagnostic systems designed in developed countries may not be immediately appropriate for use in the target developing countries. Therefore, a rigorous assessment for POC diagnostics outcomes of interest in the setting for which the test is designed should be carried out prior to adoption and scale up.

Correlation between plasma levels of lutein and oxidized low density lipoproteins: a short human intervention study
Tiziana Bacchetti, Gianna Ferretti

The increase of plasma carotenoids, in particular lutein, after dietary treatment for two weeks is associated with a significant protective effect against lipid peroxidation of plasma lipoproteins.

* The procedure does not overload the capillary and has positive effect on the increase in peak hight,
* The method allows about 70-fold increase in method sensitivity,
* The limits of detection and quantification are 0.1 nmol and 0.09 nmol of Hcy-thiolactone in 1 mL of urine, respectively,
* Presented assay can be used for the determination of Hcy-thiolactone in biological samples.
