In this work, two dimensional p-type MoS2 nanosheets are introduced on the surface of p-type ZnO derived from metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) to produce ZnO@MoS2 core/shell heterojunctions as a novel acetone sensor, showing a great enhancement of acetone response, about two orders of magnitude than that of pure Z...

Long-term physiological hyperglycemia will aggravate the degree of non-enzymatic glycation (NEG) proteins. Because the abnormal changes of non-enzymatic process can cause a series of pathological variation, NEG proteins have attracted more and more attention. Mass spectrometry (MS) is an indispensable and powerful analytical tool for the qualitative and quan...

Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: TechnovationAuthor(s): Jonathan D. LintonAbstractGeneralizability is the goal for scientists (both social and natural). In the social sciences invoking generalizability is more problematic as it is often based on assessment of a mainstream population, but may not apply to groups outside of the mainstream. This is a significant challenge to developing appropriate policy and interventions suitable for Other groups. An example is given of how this concern was overcome through consideration of the Voice Of the Customer (VOC) and utilizing cognitive maps to consider the...

Using data from 2017 release of the American Community Survey, I construct a household residential location choice model and value climate amenities from the trade-offs among housing cost, climate amenities, and other locational attributes in a metropolitan statistical area (MSA). On average, a retired household is willing to pay $1209 for a 1○C drop in average summer temperature, $1114 for a 1○C inc...

We present a review of the classifications, pathophysiology, and evidence-based guidelines for planning and preventive measures, as well as best practice recommendations for both routine and urgent therapeutic management of diabetes and glycemic complications. These recommendations are graded based on the quality of supporting evidence and balance between the benefits and risks or burdens for each recommendation.

Effect of Body Weight Change on Blood Pressure in a Japanese General Population with a Body Mass Index ≥ 22 kg/m2. Int Heart J. 2019 Nov 15;: Authors: Itoh H, Kaneko H, Kiriyama H, Nakanishi K, Mizuno Y, Daimon M, Morita H, Yamamichi N, Komuro I Abstract The association between changes in body weight and blood pressure (BP) in overweight people in the general population still remains unclear. We sought to clarify the effect of body weight change on BP using a community-based cohort. We studied 1,170 overweight subjects with a body mass index (BMI) ≥ 22 kg/m2 who underwent health check-ups. Among ...

AbstractPurposeMental well-being among community-dwelling individuals with type 2 diabetes has not been well established. The primary objective was to evaluate the change in the mental well-being of individuals with diabetes. The secondary objective was to evaluate the association between changes in mental well-being and perceived health over 6  months, and any interacting factors in this association.MethodsThis was a prospective, multicenter study. Community-dwelling individuals aged  ≥ 21 years with type 2 diabetes were invited to meet with community pharmacists monthly for 6 months. Indiv...

Dysregulation of mTOR signaling occurs in many human diseases, and there are significant ongoing efforts to pharmacologically target this pathway. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNA), defined by a length > 200 nucleotides and absence of a long open-reading-frame, are a class of non-protein...
