Eye hazard classification according to UN GHS / EU CLP and the severity of eye symptoms caused by accidental exposures to detergents and cleaning products - Roberto S, Geert B, Ellen BP, William B, Bla žena C, Anna C, Els C, Herbert D, Niels E, Elke F, Fabrizio S, Sergej Z.

The use of lower cut-off values/concentration limits for the calculation of mixture classification in UN GHS/EU CLP versus the previous regulatory scheme (EU Dangerous Preparations Directive, DPD), has resulted in an increased number of classifications in ...

AbstractThe aim of this study was to evaluate the photobiomodulation of red and green lights in the repair process of third-degree skin burns in rats through clinicopathological and immunohistochemical parameters. Sixty male Wistar rats were divided into three groups: control (CTRL) (n = 20), red LED (RED) (n = 20), and green LED (GREEN) (n = 20), with subgroups (n = 5) for each time of euthanasia (7, 14, 21, and 28 days). Daily applications in RED (λ630  ± 10 nm, 300 mW) and GREEN groups (λ520  ± ...

(MILAN) — The eruption of Mount Vesuvius turned an incinerated victim’s brain material into glass, the first time scientists have verified the phenomenon from a volcanic blast, officials at the Herculaneum archaeology site said Thursday. Archaeologists rarely recover human brain tissue, and when they do it is normally smooth and soapy in consistency, according to an article detailing the discovery in the New England Journal of Medicine. The eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 instantly killed the inhabitants of Pompeii and neighboring Herculaneum, burying an area 20 kilometers (12 miles) from the volcano in ash...

This study aimed to develop a novel scale, predicting the need for Delayed Intubation after inhalation injury (PDI) score.MethodsWe retrospectively identified patients with inhalation injury at four tertiary care centers in Japan between 2012 and 2018. We included patients aged 15 or older and excluded those intubated within 30 min after hospital arrival. Predictors for delayed intubation were identified with univariate analyses and scored on the basis of odds ratios. The PDI score was evaluated with the area under the receiver operating characteristic (AUROC) curve and compared with other scaling systems for burn injuries...

These religious-style incense burners can be dated as far back as 1,000 BC. The incense burners were collected from eight tombs in Western China’s 2,500 year old Jirzankal cemetery. They contained traces of burnt...

Authors: Zheng A, Ma H, Liu X, Huang Q, Li Z, Wang L, Zeng N, Wu B Abstract Context: Burn therapy (MEBT)/moist exposed burn ointment (MEBO) is an effective traditional Chinese medicine method to treat diabetic wound, but the mechanism is unclear. Autophagy has been proved to be closely related with wound healing, so MEBO/MEBT is hypothesized to promote diabetic wound healing by regulating autophagy.Objective: To explore the mechanism of moist exposed MEBT/MEBO promoting diabetic wound repair.Materials and methods: Eighty male Wistar rats were randomly assigned to control (n = 20) and diabetic group in...
