AbstractTuberculosis, smoking, and alcohol drinking are major public health and social issues worldwide. We investigated the joint effect of smoking plus alcohol drinking on TB treatment. Retrospective study was conducted among TB patients in 49  units from eight provinces in China. All patients enrolled were classified into four groups according to their smoking and/or alcohol status. Current smokers plus drinkers belonged to group 1; ex-smokers plus ex-drinkers were in group 2; current smokers and ex-drinkers, current smokers and never d rinkers, ex-smokers and current drinkers, ex-smokers and never drinkers, never ...

Publication date: August 2019Source: The Journal of Chemical Thermodynamics, Volume 135Author(s): Yi Zhang, Baotao Diao, Dongmei Xu, Haihua Jiang, Lianzheng Zhang, Jun Gao, Yinglong WangAbstractFor separation of the mixture {isopropyl alcohol (IPA) + diisopropyl ether (DIPE) + n-propanol (NPA)} by extractive distillation, propylene glycol ethyl ether (PGEE) was used as an entrainer based on selectivity since isopropyl alcohol + diisopropyl ether can an azeotrope. To explore the interaction mechanism between the entrainer PGEE and the components in the mixture, the charge density surface (σ-profiles) and t...

Publication date: 5 June 2019Source: Journal of Hazardous Materials, Volume 371Author(s): Shangqing Chen, Jiayin Hu, Jian Shi, Mengxue Wang, Yafei Guo, Mingli Li, Ji Duo, Tianlong DengAbstractA novel ammonium molybdophosphate (AMP)/ polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)/ sodium alginate (SA) composite hydrogel (APS) was prepared for Cs+ removal and enrichment from radioactive wastewater. Batch experiments with the subject of AMP concentration, pH value, initial Cs+ concentration, contact time, temperature, competing ions were investigated. The results showed this APS hydrogel with high permeability and stability could effectively adsorb...

BACKGROUND: How youth perceive harmfulness of risk behaviors such as substance use relates to their engagement in those behaviors. Yet, little is known about how different substance use modes (i.e., variations in amounts and use frequencies) are perceived....

Individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder avoid trauma-related stimuli and exhibit blunted hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis response at the time of trauma. Our laboratory uses predator odor (i.e. bobcat urine) stress to divide adult Wistar rats into groups that exhibit high (avoiders) or low (nonavoiders) avoidance of a predator odor-paired context, modeling the fact that not all humans exposed to traumatic events develop psychiatric conditions. Male avoiders exhibit lower body weight gain after stress, as well as extinction-resistant avoidance that persists after a second stress exposure. These animal...

Periodontitis is the later stage of gum disease, an inflammatory condition largely caused by particular strains of bacteria found in the mouth. While there is a fair amount of promising work related to destroying or sabotaging the disease-causing mechanisms of those bacterial species, nothing has yet made the leap to earnest clinical development. It is thought, based on epidemiological data showing an association with mortality, and on a reasonable examination of the mechanisms involved, that periodontitis can spread inflammatory signaling elsewhere in the body, particularly to the heart and the brain, and thereby accelera...
