1H NMR Metabolic Profiling of Biofluids from Rats with Gastric Mucosal Lesion and Electroacupuncture Treatment

Gastric mucosal lesion (GML) is a common gastrointestinal disorder with multiple pathogenic mechanisms in clinical practice. In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), electroacupuncture (EA) treatment has been proven as an effective therapy for GML, although the underlying healing mechanism is not yet clear. Here, we used proton nuclear magnetic resonance- (1H NMR-) based...

A Comparison Study of Single-Echo Susceptibility Weighted Imaging and Combined Multi-Echo Susceptibility Weighted Imaging in Visualizing Asymmetric Medullary Veins in Stroke Patients

Background Asymmetric medullary veins (AMV) are frequently observed in stroke patients and single-echo susceptibility weighted imaging (SWIs) is the main technique in detecting AMV. Our study aimed to investigate which echo time (TE) on single-echo susceptibility is the optimal echo for visualizing AMV and to compare the ability in detecting AMV in stroke patients between SWIs...

A Comparison of Biocompatibility of a Titanium Alloy Fabricated by Electron Beam Melting and Selective Laser Melting

Electron beam melting (EBM) and selective laser melting (SLM) are two advanced rapid prototyping manufacturing technologies capable of fabricating complex structures and geometric shapes from metallic materials using computer tomography (CT) and Computer-aided Design (CAD) data. Compared to traditional technologies used for metallic products, EBM and SLM alter the mechanical...

A Further Study of Almost Periodic Time Scales with Some Notes and Applications

A Hybrid Wavelet Fuzzy Neural Network and Switching Particle Swarm Optimization Algorithm for AC Servo System

A hybrid computational intelligent approach which combines wavelet fuzzy neural network (WFNN) with switching particle swarm optimization (SPSO) algorithm is proposed to control the nonlinearity, wide variation in loads, time variation, and uncertain disturbance of the high-power AC servo system. The WFNN method integrated wavelet transforms with fuzzy rules and is proposed to...

A Meta-Analysis of Interleukin-10 -592 Promoter Polymorphism Associated with Gastric Cancer Risk

We aimed to explore the role of IL-10 -592 A/C SNP in the susceptibility to gastric cancer through a systematic review and meta-analysis. Each initially included article was scored for quality appraisal. 17 studies were eligible for the meta-analysis. We adopted the most probably appropriate genetic model (recessive model). Potential sources of heterogeneity were sought out via...

A Molecular Approach to the Sexing of the Triple Burial at the Upper Paleolithic Site of Dolní Věstonice

In the past decades ancient DNA research has brought numerous insights to archaeological research where traditional approaches were limited. The determination of sex in human skeletal remains is often challenging for physical anthropologists when dealing with incomplete, juvenile or pathological specimens. Molecular approaches allow sexing on the basis of sex-specific markers or...

A New Uncertainty Evaluation Method and Its Application in Evaluating Software Quality

Uncertainty theory is a branch of axiomatic mathematics dealing with experts’ belief degree. Considering the uncertainty with experts’ belief degree in the evaluation system and the different roles which different indices play in evaluating the overall goal with a hierarchical structure, a new comprehensive evaluation method is constructed based on uncertainty theory. First...

A Randomized Clinical Trial Comparing the Effectiveness of Electroacupuncture versus Medium-Frequency Electrotherapy for Discogenic Sciatica

Objective. To investigate the short- and long-term effects of electroacupuncture (EA) compared with medium-frequency electrotherapy (MFE) on chronic discogenic sciatica. Methods. One hundred participants were randomized into two groups to receive EA () or MFE () for 4 weeks. A 28-week follow-up of the two groups was performed. The primary outcome measure was the average leg pain...

A Special Phase Detector for Magnetic Inductive Measurement of Cerebral Hemorrhage

Cerebral hemorrhage is an important clinical problem that is often monitored and studied with expensive techniques, such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET). These devices are not readily available in economically underdeveloped regions of the world and in emergency departments and emergency zones. The magnetic...

A bibliometric analysis of scientific trends in phytoplankton research

We summarize the scientific trends in phytoplankton studies between 1991 and 2013 based on bibliometric analysis. The annual publication output on phytoplankton demonstrated a rapid linear increasing tendency during the past two decades, and its contribution to total scientific articles remained below 10%. Under the context of fast scientific research development, the yearly...

A facile synthesis of monodisperse Au nanoparticles and their catalysis of CO oxidation

Monodisperse Au nanoparticles (NPs) have been synthesized at room temperature via a burst nucleation of Au upon injection of the reducing agent t-butylamine-borane complex into a 1, 2, 3, 4-tetrahydronaphthalene solution of HAuCl4·3H2O in the presence of oleylamine. The as-synthesized Au NPs show size-dependent surface plasmonic properties between 520 and 530 nm. They adopt an...

A histological and biomechanical study of bone stress and bone remodeling around immediately loaded implants

Immediate loading (IL) increases the risk of marginal bone loss. The present study investigated the biomechanical response of peri-implant bone in rabbits after IL, aiming at optimizing load management. Ninety-six implants were installed bilaterally into femurs of 48 rabbits. Test implants on the left side created the maximal initial stress of 6.9 and 13.4 MPa in peri-implant...
