Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) were used to investigate the structure and morphology of the nanoparticles and films. Surface wettability and optical properties of the thin films were studied by means of water contact angle analyzer and UV-vis spectrophotometer...

In this paper, we propose an automated pulmonary nodule detection algorithm, denoted by NODULe, which jointly uses a conventional method for nodule detection and a deep learning model for genuine nodule identification. Specifically, we first use multi-scale Laplacian of Gaussian (LoG) filters and prior shape and size constraints to detect nodul...

CONCLUSION: We identified a changing pattern of human visceral leishmaniasis occurrence in Ara çatuba: the first period (1999-2009) showed a cyclic pattern, clusters, and presence of spatial dependence in the case point distribution; the second period (2010-2015) showed the lowest rates of all historical series, stable incidence, and cases with a random distribution pattern.

Pleurotus ostreatus β-glucan with good processing functionality can be conjugated with oat protein isolate via Maillard reaction, leading to an improved utilization of protein in food industry. Therefore, we produced conjugate with oat protein isolate and Pleurotus ostreatus β-glucan via Maillard reaction under controlled dry-heating conditions. The formation of conjugates wi...

Crystal violet staining assay showed that SA clearly reduced the biomass of the biofilm at its sub-MICs. Light microscopic images and scanning electron microscope (SEM) observations suggested that SA inhibited the biofilm adhesion on glass slides and induced apparent collapse of biofilm architectu...

This study aimed to compare the clinical effectiveness of urine exfoliated cells FISH examination, CT scan, and urine cytologic examination on the diagnosis of upper urinary tract urothelium carcinoma with hematuresis symptom. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 30 patients with suspicious upper urinary tract urothelium carcinoma between Aug 2010 and Aug 2011 were enrolled, including 23 males and 7 females. All the subjects received urine exfoliated cells FISH examination, CT scan, and urine cytologic examination. Twenty-one cases were diagnosed as urothelium carcinoma, including 14 cases of carcinoma of renal pelvis and 7 cas...

Publication date: Available online 20 August 2018Source: PolymerAuthor(s): Mojtaba Enayati, Alireza AbbaspourradAbstractCu(0)-mediated reversible-deactivation radical polymerization of n-butyl acrylate was performed in suspension without the use of an organic solvent. In all cases, a 5 v% organic phase (monomer, initiator and ligand) was used with respect to 95 v% aqueous phase. Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) as a suspension stabilizer has been shown to be able to control the polymerization for degree of polymerizations of 222 and higher. The polymerization reaction showed linear first order kinetics for a PVA concentration range...
