General practice for the poor and specialist services for the rich: inequality evidence from a cross-sectional survey on Hangzhou residents, China

Inequalities in health care services are becoming an increasing concern in the world including in China. This study measured the income-related inequalities of residents in Hangzhou of China in access to general practice and specialist care and identified socioeconomic factors associated with such inequalities. A cross-sectional questionnaire survey was conducted on 1048...

Layered double hydroxide functionalized biomass carbon fiber for highly efficient and recyclable fluoride adsorption

The removing of fluoride from water is highly desired from the viewpoint of environmental protection and sustainable development due to the adverse impacts on human and ecosystem. In this study, the hierarchical porous layered double hydroxide (LDH)/biomass carbon fiber (BCF) has been successfully fabricated by the combined sol–gel, carbonization and hydrothermal processes using...

Flow Mechanism and Simulation Approaches for Shale Gas Reservoirs: A Review

The past two decades have borne remarkable progress in our understanding of flow mechanisms and numerical simulation approaches of shale gas reservoir, with much larger number of publications in recent 5 years compared to that before year 2012. In this paper, a review is constructed with three parts: flow mechanism, reservoir models and numerical approaches. In mechanism, it is...

Fabrication of Poly(acrylic acid)/Boron Nitride Composite Hydrogels with Excellent Mechanical Properties and Rapid Self-Healing Through Hierarchically Physical Interactions

Many living tissues possess excellent mechanical properties and self-healing ability. To mimic these living tissues, a series of novel composite hydrogels, poly(acrylic acid)/surface-modified boron nitride nanosheets (PAA/BNNS-NH2) were fabricated simply through hierarchically physical interactions: molecular-scale metal coordination interaction between –COOH of PAA and Fe3+ and...

High-Dose Paraquat Induces Human Bronchial 16HBE Cell Death and Aggravates Acute Lung Intoxication in Mice by Regulating Keap1/p65/Nrf2 Signal Pathway

Abstract Paraquat (PQ) intoxication seriously endangers human beings’ health, however, the underlying mechanisms are still unclear. Here we found that PQ inhibits human bronchial 16HBE cell proliferation and promotes cell apoptosis, necrosis as well as ROS generation in a dose dependent manner. Of note, low-dose PQ (50 μM) induces cell autophagy, increases Nrf2 as well as p65...

Study of Cavitation and Cavitation Erosion Quantitative Method Based on Image Processing Technique

Cavitation erosion on the wetted surface of hydraulic machinery is directly related to the cavitation behavior. In this paper, the cavitation behavior and cavitation erosion characteristics on the airfoil surface were observed experimentally, and then, image processing methods for quantifying cavitation structure and cavitation erosion were established. Laser-CCD system was used...

A method for inspecting near-right-angle V-groove surfaces based on dual-probe wavelength scanning interferometry

High-angled structured surfaces such as micropyramidal arrays, V-grooves and lenslet arrays are widely used in industries. However, there is currently no effective way to inspect these microstructures, resulting in very high scrap rates. This paper presents a proof-of-principle demonstration of an optical system capable of measuring V-groove structures in a single measurement...

An Indoor Navigation System Based on Stereo Camera and Inertial Sensors with Points and Lines

An indoor navigation system based on stereo camera and inertial sensors with points and lines is proposed to further improve the accuracy and robustness of the navigation system in complex indoor environments. The point and line features, which are fast extracted by ORB method and line segment detector (LSD) method, are both employed in this system to improve its ability to adapt...

Enhanced Photodecomposition of Methylene Blue in Water with Sr1−xKxTiO3−δ@PC-polyHIPEs under UV and Visible Light

Photocatalytic method was investigated to remove water pollutant methylene blue (MB) produced in textile, plastic, and dye industries. PC-polyHIPEs were prepared by light-induced polymerization of dopamine in transparent polyHIPEs which were synthesized by polymerization within high internal phase emulsions. ( = 0–0.5) nanoparticles were incorporated and adhered to PC-polyHIPEs...

Zika Virus Baculovirus-Expressed Virus-Like Particles Induce Neutralizing Antibodies in Mice

The newly emerged mosquito-borne Zika virus (ZIKV) strains pose a global challenge owing to its ability to cause microcephaly and neurological disorders. Several ZIKV vaccine candidates have been proposed, including inactivated and live attenuated virus vaccines, vector-based vaccines, DNA and RNA vaccines. These have been shown to be efficacious in preclinical studies in mice...

NeoAnalysis: a Python-based toolbox for quick electrophysiological data processing and analysis

In a typical electrophysiological experiment, especially one that includes studying animal behavior, the data collected normally contain spikes, local field potentials, behavioral responses and other associated data. In order to obtain informative results, the data must be analyzed simultaneously with the experimental settings. However, most open-source toolboxes currently...
