Localization of ectopic ACTH secreting lesion with 68Ga DOTANOC PET/CT

Conclusions: 68Ga DOTANOC PET/CT was able to localize the source of ectopic ACTH secretion in 38.4% of cases. This study also suggests the possible role of 68Ga DOTANOC PET/CT in detection of residual or recurrent disease on follow-up of known cases of EAS.

AbstractWe performed a prospective study to evaluate the types and characteristics of central nervous system (CNS) disorders in patients after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The study included 163 episodes of CNS disorders of which 58 (36%) were infections. Proven or probable infections were documented in 34 patients and included fungi (n = 10, 29%), viruses (n = 12, 35%),Toxoplasma spp. (n = 9, 27%) and bacteria (n = 3, 9%). Non-infectious neurological disorders (n = 105, 64%) frequently encompassed metabolic/drug-induced abnormalities (n&thin...

CONCLUSION: Our results indicate the potential role of immediate (5 min) or early (15 min) acquisition in replacement of standardized 240 minutes acquisition in PD patients, but this result is not confirmed in HF patients, in which the acquisition at 240 min is confirmed as the most affordable timing for image interpretation, emphasizing the different pathophysiology that underlies these two pathologies.

Authors: Kim ES, Lee HS, Kim SK, Kim EY, Jang BI, Kim KO, Yang CH, Lee YJ, Crohn’s and Colitis Association in Daegu-Gyeongbuk (CCAiD) Abstract Objective: Non-invasive stool tests, including the fecal immunochemical test (FIT) and fecal calprotectin (FC), are reliable biomarkers for mucosal healing (MH) in ulcerative colitis (UC). However, which fecal test is superior for predicting MH in inactive UC patients requires evaluation. We aimed to compare the accuracy of FIT and FC results for predicting MH in quiescent UC patients.Methods: This prospective, multicenter study was conducted at three tertiary hospital...

Abstract By direct calcination of Cu2+-doped ZIF-8 in oxygen atmosphere, a new photoelectric material, CuO-ZnO heterojunction, was prepared. The morphology and structure were investigated in detail by several methods, such as scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, nitrogen adsorption-desorption method and X-ray diffraction. Under visible light irradiation, CuO-ZnO heterojunction exhibits excellent PEC behavior in aqueous media with the presence of ascorbic acid (AA) and dissolved oxygen at -0.3 V. Taking the CA125-antibody functionalized CuO-ZnO heterojunction (CuO-ZnO-Ab2) as a ...

Abstract A selective and sensitive method that uses automated in-tube solid-phase microextraction coupled to ultra-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (in-tube SPME/UHPLC-MS/MS) was developed to determine cannabidiol (CBD) and Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) in plasma samples. A new dummy molecularly imprinted monolithic capillary (MIP monolith) for in-tube SPME was prepared by in situ polymerization in a fused silica capillary; hydrogenated cannabidiol was employed as dummy template. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) confirmed that the synthesis reagents were incor...

In this study, we isolated and identified the dominant bacteria Pseudomonas, and we also researched the antibacterial effect and mechanism of antibacterial substance against Pseudomonas. The dominant bacteria Pseudomonas was isolated from spoiled chicken breast meat and identified as Pseudomonas putida. The result showed that the Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of antibacterial substance against Pseudomonas putida was 12.5 mg/mL. The Propidium iodide (PI) infiltration experiments and leakage of potassium ions indicated the antimicrobial substance could increase the permeability of the bacterial cell membrane. Scan...

This study aims to elucidate the effect of gluten on the noodle texture and starch digestion rates. The structure of cooked noodles was characterized using a scanning electron microscope and Fourier-transform infrared-microscopy. The texture of cooked noodles remained similar when the gluten content was varied from 8 to 12%; however, the hardness increased significantly beyond 14% gluten content. The enzyme-digestion of cooked noodles was largely dependent on the protein content and the cooking time, and the digestibility of cooked noodles was increased when the noodle was over-cooked compared to optimum-cooked. The physic...

AlGamdiAbstractThin films of lead sulfide (PbS) were prepared on glass substrates using the successive ionic layer adsorption and reaction technique. To investigate the gamma-induced properties, the deposited thin films were sequentially exposed to 60Co gamma rays at doses varying from 0 to 75 kGy. X-ray diffraction analysis of the pristine and irradiated samples showed that the crystallinity of the PbS thin films increased with the gamma dose. Field-emissi...

KoaoAbstractZinc selenide (ZnSe) thin films were deposited on non-conducting glass substrates at 80 °C for 2.0 h in an alkaline medium using photo-assisted chemical bath deposition (PCBD). The films were annealed in air at 300 °C for different time intervals ranging from 0 to 4.0 h. The annealing time had a significant effect on the structure, morphology and optical properties of the deposited films. The glancing incidence X-ray diff...
