Study Objectives:Studies have shown racial differences in circadian rhythm in African Americans when compared to non-Hispanic whites, and an association between circadian dyssynchrony and depression. We hypothesized that the prevalence of delayed sleep time is greater in African Americans when compared to whites and that delayed sleep time is associated with depression.Methods:We analyzed data from the Sleep Heart Health Study (SHHS), a large community-based sample. Delayed sleep time was defined as self-reported weeknight bedtime after midnight. Depression was defined based on participant's response to the question,&ldquo...

AbstractSkin and skin structure infection (SSSI) is classified as complicated (cSSSI) if it involves deep subcutaneous tissue or requires surgery. Factors associated with blood culture sampling and bacteremia have not been established in patients with cSSSI. Moreover, the benefit of information acquired from positive blood culture is unknown. The aim of this study was to address these important issues. In this retrospective population-based study from two Nordic cities, a total of 460 patients with cSSSI were included. Blood cultures were drawn from 258 (56.1%) patients and they were positive in 61 (23.6%) of them. Factors...

Publication date: Available online 14 June 2019Source: PolymerAuthor(s): Masaru Mukai, Wei Ma, Keiko Ideta, Atsushi TakaharaAbstractOrganic-inorganic nanocomposite films consisting of surface functionalized halloysite nanotube (HNT) and poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) with improved mechanical and thermal properties were prepared. The surface of HNT was modified with boronic acid by two different methods. In the first method, a boronic acid group bearing a triethoxysilane was synthesized and used to modify HNT directly. In the second method, HNT was modified by 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) and 4-formylphenylboronic acid ...

In this study, a hybrid sodium alginate-polyvinyl alcohol-silica oxide capsule (SA-PVA-SiO2 capsule, SPSC) was fabricated via the one-step titration-gel method that directly dripped the spherical droplet of the SA, PVA and tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS) mixed solutions into the bath with calcium chloride (CaCl2), NaCl and oversaturated boric acid (H3BO3) cross-linking agents. The formation principle of the prepared capsule was investigated. And the adsorptive performance of the SPSC was analyzed by removing the single, binary and multi-component cationic dye solutions [i.e. Methylene Blue (MB), Malachite Green (MG) and Cr...

ConclusionsMusculoskeletal problems are the main occupational health problems experienced by the study group. New findings include a low but important prevalence of ultraviolet radiation–associated conditions. One in 3 guides have experienced significant psychological trauma, and one quarter of these had symptoms of PTSD.

In this study verteporfin (Ver), a second-generation photosensitizer, has been conjugated with mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs): the resulting Ver-MSNs are an efficient nanoplatforms used to enhance cargo capacity and cellular uptake. Our in vitro and in vivo studies investigated whether Ver-MSNs were able to reduce or inhibit melanoma growth. In vitro experiments performed using B16F10 mouse melanoma cells showed that Ver-MSNs stimulated by red light (693 nm) significantly decreased in vitro cells proliferation in a range of concentration between 0.1 μg/ml to 10 μg/ml. When Ver-MSNs (5 μg/ml in glyc...
