AIM To examine the predictive value of previous obstetric history, Bishop score, and sonographic measurement of cervical length for predicting failed induction of labor in parous women at term. METHODS This prospective observational study enrolled 110 consecutive parous women at term with singleton gestations scheduled for the induction of labor.(More)
Polyamine incorporation or cross-linking of proteins, post-translational modifications mediated by transglutaminase 2 (TGase 2), have been implicated in a variety of physiological functions including cell adhesion, extracellular matrix formation and apoptosis. To better understand the intracellular regulation mechanism of TGase 2, the properties of(More)
Hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) circulate under steady-state conditions at detectable levels in peripheral blood (PB). The phenomenon of enforced release of HSPCs from BM into PB is called mobilization and may be envisioned as a danger-sensing response mechanism triggered by hypoxia or mechanical- or infection-induced tissue damage and is a(More)
Accumulating line of evidence support that adult tissues contain a rare population of pluripotent stem cells (PSCs), which differentiate into all types of cells in our body. Bonghan microcell (primo microcells (PMCs)) discovered in 1960s was reported to have a pluripotency like a stem cell in vivo as well as in vitro condition. Here, we describe the(More)
The surface characteristics of polyimide films containing cinnamate groups which promote the uniform alignment in adjacent liquid crystal (LC) upon photodimerization by linearly polarized ultraviolet (LPUV) lights were studied [M. Schadt, K. Schmitt, V. Koznikov, V. Chignirov, Jpn. J. Appl. Phys. 31 (1992) 2155.]. But photoalignment methods have an image(More)
AIMS To determine whether sonographic measurement of cervical length predicts intra-amniotic infection and impending preterm delivery (within 7 days of amniocentesis) in women with preterm labor and intact membranes, and to compare the predictability with that of amniotic fluid (AF) white blood cell (WBC) count. METHODS Transvaginal ultrasonographic(More)
The (TMP-HT)2Ir(acac) was synthesized with 2-bromo-4-(trifluoromethyl)pyridine and 5-hexyl-2-thiopheneboronic acid pinacol ester for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). This material was designed on the basis of Gaussian modeling program results. The ligands have both the electron donor and acceptor in a molecule. There are pyridyl group which decrease(More)
A novel yellow light-emitting material, (2Z)-3-[4,4"-bis(dimethylamino)-1,1':4',1"-terphenyl-2'-yl]-2-phenylacrylonitrile (BDAT-P), having the modified molecular structure from red fluorescent compound, (2Z, 2'Z)-3,3'-[4,4"-bis(dimethylamino)-1,1':4',1"-terphenyl-2',5'-diyl]bis(2-phenylacry-lonitrile) (ABCV-P), was synthesized in order to study the effect(More)
The device performance of red organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) was dramatically improved by co-doping of the red fluorescent material of (2Z,2'Z)-3,3'-[4,4"-bis(dimethylamino)-1,1':4',1"-terphenyl-2',5'-diyl]-bis(2-phenylacrylonitrile) (ABCV-P) with the hole transport material of N'-bis-(1-naphyl)-N,N'-diphenyl-1,1 '-biphenyl-4,4'-diamine (NPB) and the(More)
Optical and electrical characteristics of the devices using photonic gel film and hydrogel electrolyte were studied. Poly(styrene-b-2-vinylpyridine) (PS-b-P2VP) lamellar film with alternating hydrophobic block and hydrophilic polyelectrolyte block polymers (52 kg/mol-b-57 kg/mol) were prepared for the photonic gel. Poly(isobutylene-co-maleic acid) sodium(More)
