Authors: Nagashima K, Sano I, Kobayashi T, Eto K, Nagai K, Ninomiya R, Suzuki A, Oohata Y, Konishi K, Nakano T, Yamamoto F Abstract A 63-year-old man was admitted to our department following a secondary medical examination. Blood tests showed high levels of liver enzymes, IgG, IgG4, and antinuclear antibody. Computed tomography showed tumors in the bilateral lower lobes of the lungs and pleural thickening. After pleural and liver biopsy procedures, he was conclusively diagnosed with IgG4-related lung pseudotumor and pleural inflammation with autoimmune hepatitis. We started treatment with prednisolone 40 mg/day, an...

CONCLUSION: In addition to the benefit of AuNP treatment to the control of melanoma in single high-dose treatment, further therapeutic gain is expected through fractionated X-ray treatment that involves daily exposure. The AuNP-treated melanoma cells of an increased portion in the radiosensitive G2/M phase following a fractionated dose delivery would respond to the next treatment with an enhanced chance of clonogenic death.

(Georgia Institute of Technology) Imagine Google Earth with only the street view and a far-away satellite view but not much of a map view. Brain imaging, for the most part, has been missing just that, and a lot of research on how the brain computes happens on that map-like level. New imaging tackles this special view of the brain with the highest-energy X-rays in the country that illuminate thick sections of a mouse brain.

Plasmonic metal nanostructures have a significant impact on a diverse domain of fields, including photocatalysis, antibacterial, drug vector, biosensors, photovoltaic cell, optical and electronic devices. Metal nanoparticles (MNps) are the simplest nanostructure promising ultrahigh stability, ease of manufacturing and tunable optical response. Silver nanoparticles (AgNp) dominate in the class of MNps because of their relatively high abundance, chemical activity and unique physical properties. Although MNps offer the desired physical properties, most of the synthesis and fabrication methods lag at the electronic grade due t...

News from space always arrives late — and in a discovery announced Monday, that meant 130 million years late. It was that long ago that two neutron stars in Galaxy NGC 4993, in the Hydra constellation, spiraled in toward one another and collided in a titanic eruption, sending out waves of energy that literally shook our world. The shaking happened on Aug. 17 at 8:41 a.m. E.T., as gravitational waves released by the event — ripples in spacetime that Albert Einstein first predicted in 1915 but weren’t confirmed until a full century later — at last reached and passed through the Earth. While the first...

Johnson &Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) subsidiary DePuy Synthes said late last week that it launched the Maxframe multi-axial limb correction system designed to gradually correct bone or soft tissue deformities in the arm, leg, foot or ankle. DePuy said the Maxframe system includes 3D planning software intended to create accurate patient treatment plans and reduce the number of X-rays required and the procedural complexity of treatments. The newly launched limb fixation system also includes the company’s Assure-Strut technology designed to emit an audible click after patient adjustment of the device as the strut l...
