Previous studies demonstrated that thrombin is an important factor in brain injury after intracerebral hemorrhage. This study investigated the effect of thrombin on hydrocephalus development in a rat intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) model. There were three parts in this study. First, male Sprague-Dawley rats had an injection of 200 μL saline, autologous(More)
OBJECTIVE Pituitary abscess is a rare disorder with nonspecific presenting manifestations, often making a correct preoperative diagnosis difficult. To better determine the salient signs and symptoms of pituitary abscess and to evaluate the effectiveness of surgical and antibiotic therapies, we conducted a review of patients treated for pituitary abscess at(More)
Smog chamber experiments were performed to investigate the composition of products formed from photooxidation of aromatic hydrocarbon ethylbenzene. Vacuum ultraviolet photoionization mass spectrometer and aerosol time-of-flight mass spectrometer were used to measure the products in the gas and particle phases in real-time. Experimental results demonstrated(More)
Site-selective ionization of ethanol dimer and the subsequent fragmentation were studied by synchrotron vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) photoionization mass spectrometry. With photoionization efficiency spectra measurements and theoretical calculations, the detailed mechanisms of the ionization-dissociation processes of ethanol dimer under VUV irradiation were(More)
BACKGROUND McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS) is a clinical syndrome with low incidence, and its concurrence with pituitary GH adenoma is rare. Little of the history, treatment and outcome has been studied. METHOD Follow-up of a 37-year-old male patient of MAS associated with pituitary GH adenoma was performed continuously recording the disease development(More)
The kinetic energy dependences of the reactions of Co(n)(+) (n = 2-16) with CD(4) are studied in a guided ion beam tandem mass spectrometer over the energy range of 0-10 eV. The main products are hydride formation, Co(n)D(+), dehydrogenation to form Co(n)CD(2)(+), and double dehydrogenation yielding Co(n)C(+). These primary products decompose to form(More)
Reactions of the late third-row transition metal cation Au(+) with H(2), D(2), and HD are examined using guided ion beam tandem mass spectrometry. A flow tube ion source produces Au(+) in its (1)S (5d(10)) electronic ground state level. Corresponding state-specific reaction cross sections for forming AuH(+) and AuD(+) as a function of kinetic energy are(More)
In present study, photoionization and dissociation of acetic acid dimers have been studied with the synchrotron vacuum ultraviolet photoionization mass spectrometry and theoretical calculations. Besides the intense signal corresponding to protonated cluster ions (CH(3)COOH)(n)·H(+), the feature related to the fragment ions (CH(3)COOH)H(+)·COO (105 amu) via(More)
This paper describes thermal desorption/tunable vacuum-ultraviolet photoionization time-of-flight aerosol mass spectrometry (TD-VUV-TOF-PIAMS) for the real-time analysis of secondary organic aerosols (SOAs) in smog chamber experiments. SOAs are sampled directly from atmospheric pressure and are focused through an aerodynamic lens assembly into the mass(More)
The photoionization of the monoterpene limonene has been studied using tunable vacuum ultraviolet synchrotron radiation in the region from the threshold for ionization of the parent molecule up to 15.5 eV. The adiabatic ionization energy of limonene is derived from photoionization efficiency spectrum and found to be 8.27 eV, compared with the density(More)
