The adsorption of cationic basic blue 9 and anionic acid orange 51 from aqueous solution onto the calcified eggshell (ES) and its ground eggshell powder (ESP) was carried out by varying the process parameters such as agitation speed, initial dye concentration, adsorbent mass and temperature. The adsorption potential for basic blue 9 onto ESP is far lower(More)
Machine Type Communication (MTC), which allows different devices to communicate without the needs of human to machine interactions, has been developed in recent years. However, MTC possibly resulting in an unexpectedly high collision rate is different from contemporary mobile communication service when it involves a very large number of communication(More)
Machine type communication (MTC) is becoming an important part of the cellular network, such as long-term-evolution (LTE) network. Diverse MTC applications are going to be realized in LTE network due to the advantages of better coverage and lower deployment cost. However, a large number of MTC devices desiring to transmit short data will cause overloaded in(More)
Scrub typhus is a mite-borne infectious disease caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi (previously called Rickettsia tsutsugamushi). The severity of this disease varies from only mild symptoms to death, and its manifestations are nonspecific. Therefore, clinicians may not correctly diagnose scrub typhus early enough for successful treatment. Reports of infections(More)
PURPOSE To study characteristics of patients with community-acquired complicated urinary tract infections (cUTIs) and to compare effectiveness and antibiotic cost of treatment with ceftriaxone (CRO), levofloxacin (LVX), and ertapenem (ETP). METHODS This retrospective study enrolled patients who had community-acquired cUTIs admitted to Division of(More)
Multilevel resistive switching (RS) characteristics of silver programmable metallization cells (Ag-PMCs) with stacked SiO<sub>x</sub>/SiO<sub>2</sub> solid electrolytes have been investigated. Combined with conventional high/low resistance states and additional two middle resistance states (MRS1/MRS2), a multilevel cell operation of(More)
OBJECTIVES According to our previous study, OXA-58 translocates to the periplasm via the Sec pathway in carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (CRAb). In the present study, carbapenem-hydrolysing class D β-lactamases (CHDLs) belonging to the OXA-23, OXA-40 and OXA-51 families were examined to determine whether they are also Sec-dependent.(More)
Studies on the association between aortic aneurysm (AA) and the subsequent risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) are limited to a few case reports and investigations which only focused on surgical effects. Therefore, we used the National Health Insurance Research Database to clarify whether patients with AAs have a heightened risk of subsequent VTEs,(More)
