Simpson, Dan Du, Lei Li, Yuehe LinAbstractIn this work, we present an ultra-low-cost smartphone device for in situ quantification of OP poisoning severity. The performance of the lens-less smartphone spectrum apparatus (LeSSA) is evaluated using standard human Interleukin-6 (IL-6) immunoassay kits. Upon dose-response curve fitting, LeSSA demonstrates an accuracy of 99.5%...

[IPS] Brazzaville -When faced with a crisis, our natural reaction is to deal with its immediate threats. Ateka* came to the make-shift clinic with profuse diarrhoea: they diagnosed cholera.

But she came back to the treatment centre a few days later - not for cholera, but because she was suffering from severe acute malnutrition. Doctors had saved her life but not restored her health. And there were

Thymic carcinoma represents a rare and poorly understood type of thymic epithelial neoplasm that has been the subject of much controversy. Poorly differentiated nonkeratinizing squamous cell carcinoma, also known as lymphoepithelioma-like thymic carcinoma, is a rare variant of thymic carcinoma that has not been adequately characterized in the literature. The clinicopathologic, immunohistochemical, ultrastructural, and molecular features of 25 cases are reported. The patients were 19 men and 6 women, ranging in age from 20 to 85 years (mean: 60 y). The tumors presented clinically as anterior mediastinal masses with c...

Study Design. Multicenter, prospective study of consecutive adult spinal deformity (ASD) patients. Objective. To evaluate back and leg pain as a combined score in ASD and compare their relative and cumulative correlations with health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and sagittal parameters. Summary of Background Data. Pain and disability are commonly reported in patients with ASD. This can affect their back, their legs or both. ASD-associated pain has been correlated with numerous HRQOL scores and radiological parameters. Methods. Preoperative pain intensity was assessed with a Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) for in...

Study Design. Retrospective analysis wherein 103 patients were considered, and 76 patients were included: 49 were classified as chronic non-specific low back pain (CNSLBP) (Study group) and 27 had identifiable cases of specific chronic low back pain (LBP) (Control group). Objective. Elucidate markers of systemic inflammation in patients with CNSLBP. Summary of Background Data. Mechanisms of LBP are poorly understood. Pro-inflammatory cytokines are increased in obesity and involved with pain modulation; we previously proposed a theoretical model of their mediating role in LBP. Methods. Demographic information was...
