Methodology for implementing power plant efficiency standards for power generation: potential emission reduction

Some methods of generating power such as power generation through coal, natural gas, oil result in inevitable emissions of greenhouse gases. While power generation is necessary due to its increasing demand, it is important for power companies to generate their power in an efficient manner to reduce its effect on the environment. One of the most effective ways of tackling ...

Teachers’ Experiences Providing One-on-One Instruction to Struggling Readers

This study examined the experiences of 12 kindergarten, first-, and second-grade classroom teachers who provided one-on-one intervention instruction for struggling readers within the general classroom context. Teachers were interviewed at the end of the project. Interview statements clustered into four themes: Managing One-on-One Intervention, Observing Student Growth, Acquiring ...

Effects of genetic polymorphisms on the OCT1 and OCT2-mediated uptake of ranitidine

Background Ranitidine (Zantac®) is a H2-receptor antagonist commonly used for the treatment of acid-related gastrointestinal diseases. Ranitidine was reported to be a substrate of the organic cation transporters OCT1 and OCT2. The hepatic transporter OCT1 is highly genetically variable. Twelve major alleles confer partial or complete loss of OCT1 activity. The effects of these ...

Dynamic MRI to quantify musculoskeletal motion: A systematic review of concurrent validity and reliability, and perspectives for evaluation of musculoskeletal disorders

Purpose To report evidence for the concurrent validity and reliability of dynamic MRI techniques to evaluate in vivo joint and muscle mechanics, and to propose recommendations for their use in the assessment of normal and impaired musculoskeletal function. Materials and methods The search was conducted on articles published in Web of science, PubMed, Scopus, Academic search ...

Recovery after critical illness: putting the puzzle together—a consensus of 29

In this review, we seek to highlight how critical illness and critical care affect longer-term outcomes, to underline the contribution of ICU delirium to cognitive dysfunction several months after ICU discharge, to give new insights into ICU acquired weakness, to emphasize the importance of value-based healthcare, and to delineate the elements of family-centered care. This ...

Restrictive surgical approach to palliate angina in a patient with coronary three vessel disease and biventricular metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma

Metastatic cardiac tumors may cause different symptoms including angina, symptoms of heart failure and/or arrhythmia. In patients with concomitant coronary artery disease, it may be difficult to distinguish between angina caused by metastases to the heart, for example, by stealing perfusion from the coronary arteries, and angina caused by coronary stenosis. Identifying the origin ...

Angiogenesis and VEGF-expressing cells are identified predominantly in the fascia rather than in the muscle during the early phase of dermatomyositis

We previously demonstrated that fasciitis is a common lesion in dermatomyositis (DM) and that DM-associated fasciitis is detectable, as the result of the increased vascularity in the fascia, by power Doppler ultrasonography. We aimed to investigate whether angiogenesis and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-expressing cells in the fascia are histologically demonstrated ...

Psychometric properties of morning joint stiffness duration and severity measures in patients with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis

To assess the measurement properties of two single-item patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures that assessed the length of time (in minutes) and severity of morning joint stiffness (MJS) experienced each day. Data from two Phase 3, randomized placebo-controlled (and active-controlled [RA-BEAM]), clinical studies assessing the safety and efficacy of baricitinib in adults with ...

Comparing the Chinese versions of two knee-specific questionnaires (IKDC and KOOS): reliability, validity, and responsiveness

The International Knee Documentation Committee Subjective Knee Form (IKDC) and the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) are knee-specific questionnaires that have been widely used and translated into numerous languages. However, the differences in the psychometric properties between the Chinese IKDC and KOOS remain unclear. The purpose of this study was to conduct a ...
