Publication date: Available online 19 July 2019Source: Materials Chemistry and PhysicsAuthor(s): Tzu-Ting Chou, Rui-Wen Song, Hao Chen, Jenq-Gong DuhAbstractThe collapse-free joints were successfully built under a low reflowing temperature of 185°C via using the Sn-Ag-Cu(-Ni)/Sn-Bi hybrid solders. Such a structure with middle and low melting points solders could prevent the infrastructure of 3D packages from collapse caused by overweight of stacked dies on substrates. Furthermore, a low bonding temperature could reduce the consumption of thermal budget during chip fabrication. By introducing Ni-doped Sn-Ag-Cu solder, t...

Hege Thoresen, Hadi Al-Hasani, Dirk Müller-Wieland, D. Margriet Ouwens, Jorg KotzkaAbstractSecreted frizzled-related protein (sFRP) 4 is an adipokine with increased expression in white adipose tissue from obese subjects with type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Yet, it is unknown whether sFRP4 action contributes ...

Conclusion: :OSA is not uncommon in asthma patients. Careful assessment of sleep related symptoms and demographic parameters of asthma patients are essential to suspect diagnosis of OSA. Additional factors like smoking, obesity, GERD and allergic rhinitis are important contributing factor for higher risk of OSA among asthma patients. Early diagnosis of OSA in asthma patients by polysomnography may have a clinical benefit in the management of both diseases. PMID: 31321930 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Lima A, Ferin R, Bourbon M, Baptista J, Pavão ML Abstract In Azores, the standardized mortality rate for coronary artery disease (CAD) is nearly the double when compared to mainland Portugal. The aim of this study was to compare the prevalence of conventional CAD risk factors, as well as the plasma aminothiol profile (and its major determinants), between two groups of healthy subjects from Ponta Delgada (in Azores) and Lisbon (in mainland) cities, searching for precocious biomarker(s) of the disease. The study groups consisted of 101 healthy volunteers from Ponta Delgada (PDL) and 121 from Lisbon, a...

Authors: Lee JH Abstract Purpose: The study aimed to investigate the prevalence of hyperuricemia and its association with metabolic syndrome (MetS) and cardiometabolic risk factors (CMRFs) in Korean children and adolescents. Methods: This cross-sectional survey used data from the 7th Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2016-2017), and 1,256 males and females aged 10-18 years were included. Hyperuricemia was defined when SUA levels were>6.6 mg/dL at 10-11 years of age (both sex), and>7.7 mg/dL for males at 12-18 years of age and>5.7 mg/dL for females at 12-18 years of age. MetS was d...

Adenovirus‑mediated overexpression of bone morphogenetic protein‑9 promotes methionine choline deficiency‑induced non‑alcoholic steatohepatitis in non‑obese mice. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Jul 19;: Authors: Li Q, Liu B, Breitkopf-Heinlein K, Weng H, Jiang Q, Dong P, Dooley S, Xu K, Ding H Abstract Liver inflammation and macrophage infiltration are critical steps in the progression of non‑alcoholic fatty liver to the development of non‑alcoholic steatohepatitis. Bone morphogenetic protein‑9 is a cytokine involved in the regulation of chemokines and lipogenesis. However, the function of bone morp...

ConclusionReplacing SB not only with LTPA but also travel PA appears to be favorably associated with lower levels of obesity indicators. Walking and cycling as part of our travel PA may be a more feasible way of increasing PA levels than moderate or vigorous intensities PA in the overall population, at lower costs and environmentally friendly..
