Causes of extreme rainfall in May 2013 over Henan Province: the role of the southwest vortex and low-level jet

The present work investigated the large-scale background and possible causes of the rainstorm in Henan Province on 25–26 May 2013 using observational and numerical studies. The results indicated that this rainstorm was accompanied by widespread rainfall in China, especially Central China. The storm was caused by the eastward movement of the southwest vortex (SWV) and a strong ...

Study of color-octet matrix elements through \(J/\psi \) production in \(e^{+}e^{-}\) annihilation

In this paper, the color-octet long distance matrix elements are studied through the inclusive \(J/\psi \) production in \(e^{+}e^{-}\) annihilation within the framework of non-relativistic QCD factorization. The calculations are up-to next-to-leading order with the radiative and relativistic corrections in the energy region of the B-factory and the near-threshold region of ...

Interface condition for the Darcy velocity at the water-oil flood front in the porous medium

Flood front is the jump interface where fluids distribute discontinuously, whose interface condition is the theoretical basis of a mathematical model of the multiphase flow in porous medium. The conventional interface condition at the jump interface is expressed as the continuous Darcy velocity and fluid pressure (named CVCM). Our study has inspected this conclusion. First, it is ...

Long-term safety of human retinal progenitor cell transplantation in retinitis pigmentosa patients

Background Retinitis pigmentosa is a common genetic disease that causes retinal degeneration and blindness for which there is currently no curable treatment available. Vision preservation was observed in retinitis pigmentosa animal models after retinal stem cell transplantation. However, long-term safety studies and visual assessment have not been thoroughly tested in retinitis ...

Investigation of rheo-diecasting mold filling of semi-solid A380 aluminum alloy slurry

The rheo-diecasting mold filling capacity and the microstructure of the semi-solid A380 aluminum alloy slurry were investigated. The results show that the mold filling capacity was strengthened with increasing pouring temperature or increasing injection pressure. Under certain process parameters, the mold cavity was fully filled. However, the mold filling capacity decreased with ...

Effect of Deformation Mode on the Wear Behavior of NiTi Shape Memory Alloys

Owing to good biocompatibility, good fatigue resistance, and excellent superelasticity, various types of bio-medical devices based on NiTi shape memory alloy (SMA) have been developed. Due to the complexity in deformation mode in service, for example NiTi implants, accurate assessment/prediction of the surface wear process is difficult. This study aims at providing a further ...

Computational explanation for bioactivation mechanism of targeted anticancer agents mediated by cytochrome P450s: A case of Erlotinib

EGFR inhibitors, even with therapeutics superiorities in anticancer, can cause idiosyncratic pulmonary and hepatic toxicities that are associated with the reactive electrophile bioactivated by Cytochrome P450s (P450s). Until now, neither has the electrophilic intermediate been caught experimentally, nor has the subtle mechanism been declared. Herein, the underlying mechanism of ...

Risk alleles for IgA nephropathy-associated SNPs conferred completely opposite effects to idiopathic membranous nephropathy in Chinese Han

The coexistence of immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) and idiopathic membranous nephropathy (IMN) in a few cases suggested that there could be existed a similar mechanism in pathogenesis of these two types of primary glomerulonephritis. In order to verify this hypothesis, a total of 23 reported IgAN-associated SNPs were genotyped in a cohort of 485 IMN patients and 569 healthy ...

Bone metastasis of malignant thymomas associated with peripheral T-cell lymphocytosis

Background Malignant thymomas are rarely associated with bone metastasis and T-cell lymphocytosis. Case presentation A 47–year-old female patient was admitted to our hospital for ptosis. A diagnosis of malignant thymoma was made based on the thymectomy and pathological result. Peripheral T-cell lymphocytosis and bone metastasis were found later. T-cell lymphocytosis was relived ...

NCOA1 is a novel susceptibility gene for multiple myeloma in the Chinese population: A case-control study

Multiple myeloma (MM) is an incurable malignancy of mature B-lymphoid cells, and its pathogenesis is only partially understood. Previous studies have demonstrated that a number of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) associated genes also show susceptibility to MM, suggesting malignancies originating from B cells may share similar genetic susceptibility. Several recent large-scale ...

Biomarkers for diagnosis of sepsis in patients with systemic inflammatory response syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Background Sepsis is one of the most common diseases that seriously threaten human health. Although a large number of markers related to sepsis have been reported in the last two decades, the diagnostic accuracy of these biomarkers remains unclear due to the lack of similar baselines among studies. Therefore, we conducted a large systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the ...

On some 1/4 BPS Wilson-’t Hooft loops

In this paper, we investigate the 1/4 BPS Wilson-’t Hooft loops in \( \mathcal{N}=4 \) supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory. We use the bulk D3-brane solutions with both electric and magnetic charges on its world-volume to describe some of 1/4 BPS Wilson-’t Hooft loops. The D3-brane supersymmetric solutions are derived form requiring κ-symmetry. We find the two consistent constraints ...

Minimally invasive subpial tonsillectomy for Chiari I decompression

Background A number of different surgical techniques have been used through the years to address Chiari I malformation (CMI). Methods This article describes how we surgically manage CMI at two high-volume centers. We call the technique the minimally invasive subpial tonsillectomy (MIST). The technique consists of a minimalistic dissection and craniectomy with a short, linear ...
