Ultra-stable Electrochemical Sensor for Detection of Caffeic Acid Based on Platinum and Nickel Jagged-Like Nanowires

Electrochemical sensors have the high sensitivity, fast response, and simple operation for applications in biological, medical, and chemical detection, but limited by the poor stability and high cost of the electrode materials. In this work, we used PtNi lagged-like nanowire for caffeic acid (CA) electrochemical detection. The removal of outer layer Ni during reaction process...

Late onset of biliopleural fistula following percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage: a case report

Biliopleural fistula (BF) and formation of biliopleural effusion is a rare complication following percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD). It occurs when the pleura is traversed by the catheter before entering the bile duct. Biliopleural fistula should be suspected when right side pleural effusion develops following the PTBD procedure. The diagnosis of biliopleural...

Distribution of glomerular diseases in Taiwan: preliminary report of National Renal Biopsy Registry–publication on behalf of Taiwan Society of Nephrology

Despite the development of biomarkers and noninvasive imaging tools, biopsy remains the only method for correctly diagnosing patients with unexplained hematuria, proteinuria and renal failure. Renal biopsy has been performed for several decades in Taiwan; however, a national data registry is still lacking until 2013. The Renal Biopsy Registry Committee was established within the...

Upregulation of B7-H4 promotes tumor progression of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma

Recent reports show that B7-H4 is highly expressed in a variety of tumor cells, functions as a negative regulator of T cells and then promotes tumor progression. However, its expression and role in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) remain unclear. In present study, B7-H4 expression in ICC and peritumoral tissues was determined at the level of mRNA and protein, and its...

Shift work is associated with metabolic syndrome in male steel workers-the role of resistin and WBC count-related metabolic derangements

There is increasing evidence linking a shift work schedule with various adverse health effects. The present study aimed to examine the relationship between shift work and the metabolic syndrome (MetS) in male steel workers, and also the possible mechanism of shift work-related metabolic derangements. A total of 1732 men aged 42 ± 8 years were enrolled in this cross-sectional...

Single-Machine Scheduling with Learning Effects and Maintenance: A Methodological Note on Some Polynomial-Time Solvable Cases

This work addresses four single-machine scheduling problems (SMSPs) with learning effects and variable maintenance activity. The processing times of the jobs are simultaneously determined by a decreasing function of their corresponding scheduled positions and the sum of the processing times of the already processed jobs. Maintenance activity must start before a deadline and its...

YC-1 induces G0/G1 phase arrest and mitochondria-dependent apoptosis in cisplatin-resistant human oral cancer CAR cells

Oral cancer is a serious and fatal disease. Cisplatin is the first line of chemotherapeutic agent for oral cancer therapy. However, the development of drug resistance and severe side effects cause tremendous problems clinically. In this study, we investigated the pharmacologic mechanisms of YC-1 on cisplatin-resistant human oral cancer cell line, CAR. Our results indicated that...

Comparative transcriptome profiling of a thermal resistant vs. sensitive silkworm strain in response to high temperature under stressful humidity condition

Thermotolerance is important particularly for poikilotherms such as insects. Understanding the mechanisms by which insects respond to high temperatures can provide insights into their adaptation to the environment. Therefore, in this study, we performed a transcriptome analysis of two silkworm strains with significantly different resistance to heat as well as humidity; the thermo...
