Controlling Streptococcus mutans and Staphylococcus aureus biofilms with direct current and chlorhexidine

Microbial biofilms formed on biomaterials are major causes of chronic infections. Among them, Gram-positive bacteria Streptococcus mutans and Staphylococcus aureus are important pathogens causing infections associated with dental caries (tooth-decay) and other medical implants. Unfortunately, current antimicrobial approaches are ineffective in disrupting established biofilms and ...

A new strategy for integrated urban water management in China: Sponge city

Urban water-related problems associated with rapid urbanization, including waterlogging, water pollution, the ecological degradation of water, and water shortages, have caused global concerns in recent years. In 2013, in order to mitigate increasingly severe urban water-related problems, China set forth a new strategy for integrated urban water management (IUWM) called the “Sponge ...

Semaphorin 7A as a potential immune regulator and promising therapeutic target in rheumatoid arthritis

Background Semaphorin 7A (Sema7A) is expressed by several different classes of lymphoid and myeloid cells and is a potent immunomodulator. We examined the role of Sema7A in modulating cellular immune responses and to provide experimental data validating the therapeutic potential of Sema7A in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Methods Soluble Sema7A (sSema7A) levels in the serum and ...

Correction to: Simultaneous Modification of Alumina and MgO·Al2O3 Inclusions by Calcium Treatment During Electroslag Remelting of Stainless Tool Steel

In Table III, the correct value of first-order interaction parameter of Cr on S should be −0.0105, rather than 0.0105. It should be stressed that the thermodynamic calculation associated with this parameter was performed using \( e_{\text{S}}^{\text{Cr}} \) = − 0.0105 in the published article. Thus, all calculated results associated with this parameter are correct in this article.

Interactive Tooth Separation from Dental Model Using Segmentation Field

Tooth segmentation on dental model is an essential step of computer-aided-design systems for orthodontic virtual treatment planning. However, fast and accurate identifying cutting boundary to separate teeth from dental model still remains a challenge, due to various geometrical shapes of teeth, complex tooth arrangements, different dental model qualities, and varying degrees of ...

Broadband Perfect Absorber with Monolayer MoS2 and Hexagonal Titanium Nitride Nano-disk Array

A broadband metamaterial absorber (MA) composed of hexagonal-arranged single-sized titanium nitride (TiN) nano-disk array and monolayer molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is studied using finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulations. The structure of TiN nano-disk array/dielectric silica (SiO2)/aluminum (Al) is adopted in our design. By optimizing the dimension parameters of the ...

FSW of aluminum AA5754 to steel DX54 with innovative overlap joint

An innovative overlap joint concept was tested to evaluate the quality improvement of welds between aluminum alloy AA5754-H22 (2 mm) and steel DX54 (1.5 mm). The innovation is a wave-shaped interface produced on the steel being directly processed by the tip of the probe, generating localized heat, extensive chemically active surfaces, and additional mechanical interlocking. Welds ...

Testing the effect of the Himalayan mountains as a physical barrier to gene flow in Hippophae tibetana Schlect. (Elaeagnaceae)

Hippophae tibetana is a small, dioecious wind-pollinated shrub endemic to the Tibetan-Qinghai Plateau. It is one of the shrubs that occur at very high elevations (5250 m a.s.l.). The Himalayan mountains provides a significant geographical barrier to the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, dividing the Himalayan area into two regions with Nepal to the south and Tibet to the north. There is no ...
