Publication date: January 2020Source: Chemical Engineering Research and Design, Volume 153Author(s): Zeyneb Sefrou, Nasr-Eddine BelkhoucheAbstractThe cloud point extraction experiments of La(III) ions using the C13E10 as non-ionic surfactant were carried out. The experimental optimization was realized by the classical method when optimizing one experimental factor at the time. The results showed that the La(III) ions were extracted at 61.77% and stripped from the loaded coacervate phase at 90.26% in one-stage with the nitric acid solution of 10−1 M. The most influent experimental factors such as: initial concentratio...

CONCLUSIONS: Technical improvements have facilitated invasive treatment of patients with acute and chronic venous obstruction; however, the evidence guiding treatment is weak. Treatment should be conducted in centers with multi-disciplinary input; robust, coordinated data collection; and regular outcome analysis to ensure safe and effective treatment and a basis for future evolvement.

Publication date: November 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 6Author(s): Harish Seethapathy, Lama NoureddineCalciphylaxis is a rare disorder of poor prognosis that can lead to intense, painful lesions involving the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Although mostly described in dialysis patients, it can affect patients with normal kidney function. The diagnosis of calciphylaxis is complicated by the absence of a gold standard marker of disease such as a clear histopathological finding. Late diagnosis and advanced lesions can significantly shorten life expectancy. Calciphylaxis wounds can have a ma...

Acinetobacter baumannii, a Gram-negative coccobacillus, has become a prevalent nosocomial health threat affecting the majority of hospitals both in the U.S. and around the globe. Microbial cell surface hydrophobicity (CSH) has previously been correlated with virulence, uptake by immune cells, and attachment to epithelial cells. A mutant strain of A. baumannii (ΔtrxA) lacking the redox protein thioredoxin A was found to be more hydrophobic than its wild type (WT) and complemented counterparts, as measured by both Microbial Adhesion to Hydrocarbon (MATH) and salt aggregation. The hydrophobicity of the mutant could be a...

Nevertheless, dendritic Na, the unstable solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) and an infinite volume change of Na metal, drive rapid cell deterioration and potential safety hazards. In tackling these challenges, we take advantage of the spontaneous reaction between molte...
