Quantifying Disaster Physical Damage Using Remote Sensing Data—A Technical Work Flow and Case Study of the 2014 Ludian Earthquake in China

Disaster damage assessment is an important basis for the objective assessment of the social impacts of disasters and for the planning of recovery and reconstruction. It is also an important research field with regard to disaster mitigation and risk management. Quantitative assessment of physical damage refers to the determination of the physical damage state of the exposed...

Insights into the structural, electronic and magnetic properties of V-doped copper clusters: comparison with pure copper clusters

The structural, electronic and magnetic properties of Cun+1 and CunV (n = 1–12) clusters have been investigated by using density functional theory. The growth behaviors reveal that V atom in low-energy CunV isomer favors the most highly coordinated position and changes the geometry of the three-dimensional host clusters. The vibrational spectra are predicted and can be used to...

Efficacy differences of electroacupuncture with single acupoint or matching acupoints for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

Previous studies have shown that acupuncture is beneficial for the alleviation of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. However, there is a lack of clinical evidence concerning the effects of acupoint-matching on chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. This is a parallel randomized controlled trial to evaluate the occurrence of nausea and vomiting after chemotherapy (the...

Colour stabilities of three types of orthodontic clear aligners exposed to staining agents

The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the colour stabilities of three types of orthodontic clear aligners exposed to staining agents in vitro. Sixty clear orthodontic aligners produced by three manufacturers (Invisalign, Angelalign, and Smartee) were immersed in three staining solutions (coffee, black tea, and red wine) and one control solution (distilled water...

FARMERS’ WILLINGNESS TO PAY FOR CROP INSURANCE IN PAKISTAN

Th is study was conducted to analyze the farmer’s willingness to pay for crop insurance and to investigate the factors that influence willingness to participate and pay for crop insurance. Contingent Valuation Method (CVM) and Heckman selection model s were applied to analyze the primary data . Finding s show that farmers were interested to pay minimum amount of premium...

Dmrt5 Controls Corticotrope and Gonadotrope Differentiation in the Zebrafish Pituitary

Dmrt transcription factors control sex determination or sex-specific differentiation across all invertebrate and vertebrate species, in which they have been studied so far. In addition to important functions in the reproductive system, also nongonadal roles have been assigned to several dmrt family members. One example is dmrt5, which was shown to guide neurogenesis in the...

The CDH1 -160C/A polymorphism is associated with breast cancer: evidence from a meta-analysis

Background Numerous epidemiological studies have evaluated the association between the CDH1 -160C/A polymorphism and the risk of breast cancers. However, these studies have yielded conflicting results. To derive a more precise estimation of this association, this meta-analysis was conducted. Methods A comprehensive search using the keywords “CDH1,” “E-Cadherin,” “polymorphism...

Specific Correlation between the Hegu Point (LI4) and the Orofacial Part: Evidence from an fMRI Study

Acupoint specificity is a foundational concept in acupuncture theory. It is closely related to the function of the acupoint. In this study, we sought to probe the central mechanisms of the specific correlation between LI4 and orofacial part in Bell’s palsy patients. In total, 36 patients with left Bell’s palsy were divided into three groups in random order, and each group...

Hepatic Lesions Detected after Mastectomy, in Breast Cancer Patients with Hepatitis Background May Need to Undergo Liver Biopsy to Rule Out Second Primary Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Purpose Liver metastasis is a common phenomenon in breast cancer patients. Hepatic lesions detected in breast cancer patients may be easily misdiagnosed as metastatic sites, rather than being treated as primary foci. This descriptive study aims to investigate the clinicopathological characteristics of second primary hepatocellular carcinoma in breast cancer patients and to infer...

Patients with Congenital Systemic-to-Pulmonary Shunts and Increased Pulmonary Vascular Resistance: What Predicts Postoperative Survival?

Background We carried out a retrospective data review of patients with systemic to pulmonary shunts that underwent surgical repair between February 1990 and February 2012 in order to assess preoperative pulmonary vascular dynamic risk factors for predicting early and late deaths due presumably to pulmonary vascular disease. Methods and Results A total of 1024 cases of congenital...

Analysis of Functional Genomic Signals Using the XOR Gate

Modeling gene regulatory networks requires recognition of active transcriptional sites in the genome. For this reason, we present a novel approach for inferring active transcriptional regulatory modules in a genome using an established systems model of bit encoded DNA sequences. Our analysis showed variations in several properties between random and functional sequences. Cross...

Sodium fluoride disrupts DNA methylation of H19 and Peg3 imprinted genes during the early development of mouse embryo

Sodium fluoride (NaF) is associated with embryonic and fetal development abnormalities, but the mechanism by which this occurs is unclear. DNA methylation, an important epigenetic reprogramming mechanism, is essential for normal embryonic development. Thus, we investigated the effect of NaF on DNA methylation in early mouse embryos, as well as mouse sperm and liver using...

Attenuation of Cell Mechanosensitivity in Colon Cancer Cells during In Vitro Metastasis

Human colon carcinoma (HCT-8) cells show a stable transition from low to high metastatic state when cultured on appropriately soft substrates (21 kPa). Initially epithelial (E) in nature, the HCT-8 cells become rounded (R) after seven days of culture on soft substrate. R cells show a number of metastatic hallmarks [1]. Here, we use gradient stiffness substrates, a bio-MEMS force...
