Publication date: Available online 17 November 2019Source: Inorganica Chimica ActaAuthor(s): Paranthaman Vijayan, Samanta Yadav, Sunil Yadav, Rajeev GuptaAbstractA series of ruthenium(II) complexes (1-6) of pyridine-carboxamide ligands, HLBT/BI (HLBT = N-(benzo[d]thiazol-2-yl)picolinamide and HLBI = N-(1H-benzo[d]imidazol-2-yl)picolinamide), have been synthesized. All Ru(II) complexes have been characterized by using various spectroscopic techniques (FTIR, UV-Visible, 1H, 13C, 31P NMR and ESI-MS), conductivity and elemental analyses. The solid-state structures of all Ru(II) complexes, except 2, were substantiated by the si...

AbstractFatal head trauma (FHT) represents one of the most frequent causes of death diagnosed in forensic pathology. However, profound statistic autopsy data on FHT is still sparse. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the circumstances and injury patterns of FHT with particular focus on age and sex, and additionally, to describe a recent risk profile of FHT. To this end, the forensic autopsy records of each FHT case at a large German university hospital during a 10-year period (2006 –2015) were analyzed retrospectively (n = 372). The male-female ratio was 2.6:1. Regarding median age, females were ...

ConclusionWithin the limitations of the study, GBR with or without autogenous block graft may be an effective approach in augmenting horizontally deficient mandibular or maxillary ridges, before the placement of dental implants. However, more complications may be seen with the use of an autogenous block graft related to the donor sites.

In this study, we explored the spatio-temporal variation for gender-specific hypertension risks in not only single-disease settings but also multiple-disease settings. From the longitudinal data of the China Health and Nutrition Survey (CHNS), 70,374 records of 21,006 individuals aged 12 years and over were selected for this study. Bayesian B-spline techniques along with the Besag, York, and Mollie (BYM) model and the Shared Component Model (SCM) model were then used to construct the spatio-temporal models. Our study found that the prevalence of hypertension in China increased from 11.7% to 34.5% during 1991 and 2015, with...

While recreational marijuana is legal in 11 states as of November 2019, more states gravitating toward legalizing the recreational use of the substance, and 33 states allowing medical marijuana, there’s apparently no stopping this trend. Cannabis, in the form of marijuana, hemp, and cannabidiol (CBD)  is being used for pain relief, to alleviate stress, cope with anxiety, and a number of other mental health disorders and addictions. Yet, there’s a dearth of clinical studies that have been conducted on the overall effects on a user’s health. Clearly, as Crain’s Detroit Business points out, more ...
