Authors: Abdel-Rahman O Abstract Objectives: The current study aims to evaluate the correlation between pre-diagnostic body mass index (BMI) as well as BMI trajectory in relation to lung cancer development and mortality risks. Methods: This analysis is based on Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovary (PLCO) trial datasets. Based on 145544 participants with complete information about pre-diagnostic BMI/BMI trajectory, associations of BMI measurements during adult life (at 20 years, 50 years and at enrolment into the study) with lung cancer development and mortality risks were determined. Multivariate Cox regression mo...

Authors: Yang H, Yang L, Li X, Li H, Tu Z, Wang X Abstract A strongly fibrinolytic enzyme was purified from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens Jxnuwx-1, found in Chinese traditional fermented black soya bean (douchi). The molecular mass of the enzyme, estimated by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), was 29 kDa. The optimal pH and temperature for the enzyme were 7.6 and 41°C, respectively. The enzyme was inhibited by phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride, soybean trypsin inhibitor, ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, Fe3+, and Fe2+. The highest affinity exhibited by the enzyme was towards N-Succin...

Authors: Kibler JL, Ma M, Llabre MM Abstract Delayed cardiovascular recovery has been associated with greater heart disease risks. However, relative to stress reactivity, cardiovascular recovery has been understudied. Further, few studies have examined associations of recovery with modifiable factors that might inform efforts to enhance recovery. The focus of the present study was whether body mass index (BMI) was associated with recovery following two stress tasks (speech and mental arithmetic). Based on the conceptualization that obesity may lead to impaired post-stress recovery, we also examined whether higher B...

In this study, two-dimensional V2CTx MXene has been prepared by selectively etching Al layers from V2AlC MAX phase by NaF+HCl etching at 90 °C for 72 h and its performance as supercapacitor (SC) electrode were tested using simulating seawater as electrolyte. V2CTx MXene-based electrodes shows a good capacitance of 181.1 F/g, which is in accordance with the volumetric specific capacitance of 317.8 F/cm3, and with 89.1% capacitance retention even after 5000 cycle. Compared with other MXenes, V2CTx have better electrochemical performance as SC electrode. This work provides an innovative strateg...
