It contains 319 citations. Also included, as separate subsections, are finite element analyses of rotor elements – discs, shafts, spindles, and blades. Topics dealing with fracture mechanics...

Amperometric Determination of Bismuth Using Gallacetophenone Phenylhydrazone with the Structural Elucidation of Complex

Gallacetophenone phenylhydrazone (GPPH) has been used as an analytical reagent for amperometric determination of bismuth. Bismuth is quantitatively determined by GPPH at pH 3.0-6.0. After studying the polarographic behaviour of GPPH and bismuth(III) at dropping mercury electrode (DME), applied potential was fixed at -0.4v vs. saturated calomel electrode (SCE). The method was...

Long-Term Impact of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia on Pulmonary Function

BACKGROUND: Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and the long-term respiratory consequences of prematurity are unfamiliar to adult respirologists and remain under-recognized entities to adult caregivers. In Canada, the incidence of preterm births and its main chronic respiratory complication, BPD, have increased over the past 25 years.

Development of broadly neutralizing antibodies in HIV-1 infected elite neutralizers

Broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs), able to prevent viral entry by diverse global viruses, are a major focus of HIV vaccine design, with data from animal studies confirming their ability to prevent HIV infection. However, traditional vaccine approaches have failed to elicit these types of antibodies. During chronic HIV infection, a subset of individuals develops bNAbs, some...

Linear maps preserving rank 2 on the space of alternate matrices and their applications

Denote by 𝒦n(F) the linear space of all n×n alternate matrices over a field F. We first characterize all linear bijective maps on 𝒦n(F)(n≥4) preserving rank 2 when F is any field, and thereby the characterization of all linear bijective maps on 𝒦n(F) preserving the max-rank is done when F is any field except for {0,1} . Furthermore, the linear preservers of the determinant (resp...

Geographic Market Definition in the Merger Guidelines: A Retrospective Analysis

Since the initial Merger Guidelines in 1968, the Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission have revised their merger enforcement screen over the course of six versions. This article examines the evolution of the geographic market component of the Guidelines and the economic implications of changing standards of market delineation on merger enforcement. Using an...

HPV-Prävalenz durch Impfprogramm erheblich reduziert

Das HPV-Impfprogramm im Vereinigten Königreich belegt die hohe Wirksamkeit der bivalenten HPV-16/18-Vakzine. Dies lässt sich am Rückgang der Prävalenz von HPV-16/18 sowie HPV-31/33/45 bei Mädchen und jungen Frauen messen. Hierdurch wird es in den nächsten Jahren zu einem deutlichen Rückgang HPV-assoziierter Neoplasien kommen.

Networked Biomedical System for Ubiquitous Health Monitoring

We propose a distributed system that enables global and ubiquitous health monitoring of patients. The biomedical data will be collected by wearable health diagnostic devices, which will include various types of sensors and will be transmitted towards the corresponding Health Monitoring Centers. The permanent medical data of patients will be kept in the corresponding Home Data...

Differentiated vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (dVIN): the most helpful histological features and the utility of cytokeratins 13 and 17

Differentiated vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (dVIN) is the precursor lesion of HPV-negative vulvar squamous cell carcinoma (VSCC). The histopathological diagnosis of dVIN can be challenging, as it often resembles vulvar non-neoplastic epithelial disorders (NNED), especially lichen sclerosus (LS). We aimed to establish the most specific and reproducible histological features of...

Outbreak of Escherichia coli O157:H7 Related to Animal Contact at a Petting Zoo

OBJECTIVE: To determine the cause of an outbreak of Escherichia coli 0157:H7 related to animal exposures so that further transmission could be prevented.

Area Optimization of Slicing Floorplans in Parallel

We first present a parallel algorithm for finding the optimal implementations for the modules of a slicing floorplan that respects a given slicing tree. The algorithm runs in O(n) time and requires O(n) processors, where n is the number of modules. It is based on a new O(n2) sequential algorithm for solving the above problem. We then present a parallel algorithm for finding a set...

Opposed Left and Right Brain Hemisphere Contributions to Sexual Drive: A Multiple Lesion Case Analysis

Brain topographical studies of normal men have have shown that sexual excitation is asymmetric in the brain hemispheres. Group studies of patients with unilateral epileptic foci and other studies of patients with unilateral brain lesions have come to the same conclusion. The present study reviewed previously published single case reports of patients with frank hypo or...

A Phase III Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial to Evaluate Efficacy and Safety of Romosozumab in Men With Osteoporosis

Globally, one in five men aged >50 years is predicted to experience an osteoporotic fracture. Because of the treatment gap in osteoporosis and the paucity of bone-forming agents for men, new osteoporosis treatments are needed.

Diversité Floristique Et Structurale De Deux Forêts Communautaires Sous Exploitation Au Cameroun: Cas De Kompia Et Nkolenyeng

The attribution of community forests to local populations has emerged as a new participative management system of plant biodiversity in Cameroon. Further to the intensification of anthropogenic activities in these forests, the logging impact on this biodiversity remains poorly known. This study was conducted in two different community forests located in the Kompia and Nkolenyeng...

Species diversity of the genus Riccia L. (Marchantiales, Ricciaceae) in Maranhão state, Brazil

Ricciaceae is a little-known liverwort family in northeastern Brazil. Fieldwork in 4 localities in Maranhão state yielded 4 species of Riccia, with 2 taxa, R. mauryana and R. weinionis, representing new state records. This paper describes the species diversity of the genus Riccia in Maranhão state, and provides descriptions, ecological notes, and illustrations for each species.

In-hospital care, complications, and 4-month mortality following a hip or proximal femur fracture: the Spanish registry of osteoporotic femur fractures prospective cohort study

SummaryWe have characterised 997 hip fracture patients from a representative 45 Spanish hospitals, and followed them up prospectively for up to 4 months. Despite suboptimal surgical delays (average 59.1 hours), in-hospital mortality was lower than in Northern European cohorts. The secondary fracture prevention gap is unacceptably high at 85%.PurposeTo characterise inpatient care...

Narcolepsy: Pathophysiology and Neuropsychological Changes

Narcolepsy is now recognized as a distinctive disorder with specific pathophysiology and neurochemical abnormalities. Findings on the role of the neuropeptide hypocretin are opening new avenues of research and new strategies for therapy. Recently, neuropsychological and electrophysiological studies have provided evidence for reduced memory performance on standard memory tests in...

4D gauge theories with conformal matter

Abstract One of the hallmarks of 6D superconformal field theories (SCFTs) is that on a partial tensor branch, all known theories resemble quiver gauge theories with links comprised of 6D conformal matter, a generalization of weakly coupled hypermultiplets. In this paper we construct 4D quiverlike gauge theories in which the links are obtained from compactifications of 6D...
