Design optimization of a contact-aided continuum robot for endobronchial interventions based on anatomical constraints

PurposeA laser-profiled continuum robot (CR) with a series of interlocking joints has been developed in our center to reach deeper areas of the airways. However, it deflects with constant curvature, which thus increases the difficulty of entering specific bronchi without relying on the tissue reaction forces. This paper aims to propose an optimization framework to find the best...

Extraction and Filter Algorithm of Roll Angular Rate for High Spinning Projectiles

The accurate measurement of roll angular rate for high spinning projectile has long been a challenging problem. Aiming to obtain the accurate roll angular rate of high spinning projectile, a novel extraction and filter algorithm, BSCZT-KF, is proposed in this paper. Firstly, a compound angular motion model of high spinning projectile is established. According to the model, we...

Recent Investigations of Phase Change Materials Use in Solar Thermal Energy Storage System

Solar thermal energy storage (TES) is an efficient way to solve the conflict between unsteady input energy and steady output energy in concentrating solar power plant. The latent heat thermal energy storage (LHTES) system is a main method of storing thermal energy using phase change materials (PCMs). Thermal properties, that is, melting points and latent heat, are the key...

Candida glabrata-Induced Refractory Infectious Arthritis: A Case Report and Literature Review

The incidence of deep fungal infection due to non-albicans Candida species (especially Candida glabrata) has significantly increased in recent decades. Candida glabrata is an opportunistic pathogen of low virulence which mainly invades the gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and respiratory tracts, but has rarely been reported as complication of articular surgery in the literature...

Silencing of the integrin-linked kinase gene suppresses the proliferation, migration and invasion of pancreatic cancer cells (Panc-1)

Integrin-linked kinase (ILK) is an ankyrin repeat-containing serine-threonine protein kinase that is involved in the regulation of integrin-mediated processes such as cancer cell proliferation, migration and invasion. In this study, we examined the effect of a lentivirus-mediated knockdown of ILK on the proliferation, migration and invasion of pancreatic cancer (Panc-1) cells...

Learning the Dynamic Treatment Regimes from Medical Registry Data through Deep Q-network

data cleaning. Ying Liu aligned the real data DTR problem with the DRL framework and prepared the dataset to seperate state and actions to be analysis with DQN. Ning Liu designed the structure and deep Q ... networks, and conducted the analysis. Zhiyuan Xu and Jian Tang also helped with the data analysis. Ying Liu, Yanzhi Wang and Ning Liu collaborated in writing the manuscript. Additional Information

Systematic analysis of lncRNA–miRNA–mRNA competing endogenous RNA network identifies four-lncRNA signature as a prognostic biomarker for breast cancer

Increasing evidence has underscored the role of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) acting as competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs) in the development and progression of tumors. Nevertheless, lncRNA biomarkers in lncRNA-related ceRNA network that can predict the prognosis of breast cancer (BC) are still lacking. The aim of our study was to identify potential lncRNA signatures capable of...

Therapeutic role of miR-19a/19b in cardiac regeneration and protection from myocardial infarction

The primary cause of heart failure is the loss of cardiomyocytes in the diseased adult heart. Previously, we reported that the miR-17-92 cluster plays a key role in cardiomyocyte proliferation. Here, we report that expression of miR-19a/19b, members of the miR-17-92 cluster, is induced in heart failure patients. We show that intra-cardiac injection of miR-19a/19b mimics enhances...

An indirect probe of the higgsino world at the CEPC

The higgsino world is one of the popular natural SUSY scenarios, in which \(|\mu | \ll M_{\mathrm{gauginos}} \ll M_{\mathrm{scalars}}\). As such, searching for light degenerate higgsinos becomes an essential task of testing naturalness in supersymmetry (SUSY). In this work, we study the indirect effects of light higgsinos in the process \(e^+e^- \rightarrow W^+W^-\) at future...

Association of ambient Particulate matter 2.5 with intensive care unit admission due to pneumonia: a distributed lag non-linear model

Air pollution in China has become a major environmental problem. There is a lack of evidence on the impact of haze (especially PM2.5) on intensive care unit admission due to pneumonia (ICUp). We hypothesized that PM2.5 was independently associated with ICUp and there was a non-linear time lag effect. All ICU admissions occurred from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2016 in Sir Run...
