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 ...

Fulranumab in patients with interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome: observations from a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study

approved the final version of the article, including the authorship list. Competing interests Dr. Hao Wang was an employee of Janssen Research & Development, LLC, in Raritan/Titusville, NJ, USA during 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 ...

Research Progress in Improving the Cycling Stability of High-Voltage LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 Cathode in Lithium-Ion Battery

High-voltage lithium-ion batteries (HVLIBs) are considered as promising devices of energy storage for electric vehicle, hybrid electric vehicle, and other high-power equipment. HVLIBs require their own platform voltages to be higher than 4.5 V on charge. Lithium nickel manganese spinel LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 (LNMO) cathode is the most promising candidate among the 5 V cathode materials for ...

Mesenchymal stroma cells in peritoneal dialysis effluents from patients

mesenchymal stroma cells - & Hao Wang Mesenchymal stroma cells (MSCs), historically termed as mesenchymal stem cells, are multipotent fibroblast-like, adult stroma cells that were first isolated from the

Rolling Resistance and Mechanical Properties of Grinded Copper Surfaces Using Molecular Dynamics Simulation

Mechanical properties of copper (Cu) film under grinding process were accomplished by molecular dynamics simulation. A numerical calculation was carried out to understand the distributions of atomic and slip vector inside the Cu films. In this study, the roller rotation velocity, temperature, and roller rotation direction change are investigated to clarify their effect on the ...

Isoform-level ribosome occupancy estimation guided by transcript abundance with Ribomap

Summary: Ribosome profiling is a recently developed high-throughput sequencing technique that captures approximately 30 bp long ribosome-protected mRNA fragments during translation. Because of alternative splicing and repetitive sequences, a ribosome-protected read may map to many places in the transcriptome, leading to discarded or arbitrary mappings when standard approaches are ...

Receiver-assisted cellular/wifi handover management for efficient multipath multimedia delivery in heterogeneous wireless networks

In a heterogeneous wireless environment, mobility particularly vertical handover between WiFi and cellular data service has to be supported. The support for multihoming feature makes Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) become a promising transport layer-based handover scheme for end users. Although the benefits of applying SCTP for multimedia delivery and handover have been ...

Ocean Wave Simulation Based on Wind Field

Ocean wave simulation has a wide range of applications in movies, video games and training systems. Wind force is the main energy resource for generating ocean waves, which are the result of the interaction between wind and the ocean surface. While numerous methods to handle simulating oceans and other fluid phenomena have undergone rapid development during the past years in the ...

Relationship of clusterin with renal inflammation and fibrosis after the recovery phase of ischemia-reperfusion injury

Background Long-term outcomes after acute kidney injury (AKI) include incremental loss of function and progression towards chronic kidney disease (CKD); however, the pathogenesis of AKI to CKD remains largely unknown. Clusterin (CLU) is a chaperone-like protein that reduces ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) and enhances tissue repair after IRI in the kidney. This study investigated ...

Self-Cleaning Glass of Photocatalytic Anatase TiO2@Carbon Nanotubes Thin Film by Polymer-Assisted Approach

Due to the good photocatalytic activity, the TiO2@CNTs thin film is highly desirable to apply to the self-cleaning glass for green intelligent building. Here, the TiO2@CNTs thin film has been successfully achieved by polymer-assisted approach of an aqueous chemical solution method. The polymer, polyethylenimine, aims to combine the Ti4+ with CNTs for film formation of TiO2@CNTs. ...

Roles of disease severity and post-discharge outpatient visits as predictors of hospital readmissions

Background Risks prediction models of 30-day all-cause hospital readmissions are multi-factorial. Severity of illness (SOI) and risk of mortality (ROM) categorized by All Patient Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (APR-DRG) seem to predict hospital readmission but lack large sample validation. Effects of risk reduction interventions including providing post-discharge outpatient ...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus and risk of colorectal adenoma: a meta-analysis of observational studies

Background To summarize the relationship between type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and risk of colorectal adenomas (CRA), we performed a meta-analysis of observational studies. Methods To find studies, we searched PubMed, Embase, the Cochrane Library, Web of Science and conference abstracts and related publications for American Society of Clinical Oncology and the European Society of ...

Human endometrial regenerative cells alleviate carbon tetrachloride-induced acute liver injury in mice

Background The endometrial regenerative cell (ERC) is a novel type of adult mesenchymal stem cell isolated from menstrual blood. Previous studies demonstrated that ERCs possess unique immunoregulatory properties in vitro and in vivo, as well as the ability to differentiate into functional hepatocyte-like cells. For these reasons, the present study was undertaken to explore the ...

Generalized linear discriminant analysis based on euclidean norm for gait recognition

One of the key issues in gait recognition is how to extract the low dimensional feature. Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) is a commonly used method for linear dimension reduction. This paper proposed a generalized LDA based on Euclidean norm (ELDA) for gait recognition. By redefining a better between-class scatter matrix to separate the neighboring samples that overcome the ...
