Publication date: Available online 16 October 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators A: PhysicalAuthor(s): Ssu-Han Chen, Aron Michael, Chee Yee KwokAbstractThis paper presents the fabrication and characterization of a high performance piezoelectrically driven micro-lens actuator. The fabrication method involves controlling the residual stresses in the structure to predefine the initial deflection of the actuator, resulting in a larger actuation stroke. The residual stress control exploits the unique properties of ultra-high vacuum e-beam evaporated film to form thick tensile polysilicon as the actuator structural layer. This is...
Conclusions: It appears that further studies are necessary to explain this problem, perhaps to include an evaluation of TF levels in psoriatic skin. PMID: 31616219 [PubMed]
ConclusionsCombining Gini coefficient and GIS network analysis in accessibility can be useful in quantifying and monitoring variation by region. We propose this combination as a new method for helping the government to make evidence-based healthcare planning.

David Spence, Xiaobin Wang, Yong Huo, Xiping Xu, Xianhui QinRationale &ObjectiveIn populations with folic acid fortification or supplementation, the main nutritional determinant of total homocysteine levels is vitamin B12 (B12) status. We aimed to evaluate the modifying effect of B12 levels on the association between folic acid treatment and chronic kidney disease (CKD) progression.Study DesignA post hoc analysis of an interventional trial.Setting &ParticipantsThis is a post hoc analysis of 1,374 hy...

Conclusions: Poor outcome during heatstroke can be minimized by advance planning and timely intervention in lowand middle-income countries. PMID: 31612977 [PubMed - in process]
Researchers in South Korea studied drinking habits of almost 10million people. The number of times a person drank over the week raised risk of atrial fibrillation - which can cause stroke.
