CONTEXT Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) increases the risk of decrease in bone mineral density (BMD). However, whether calcitrol improves this situation is unknown. OBJECTIVE The current study investigates the effects of calcitriol on BMD in patients with esomeprazole therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three hundred and eighty-six participants with(More)

Si is regarded as one of the most promising anode materials for next generation Li-ion batteries, but it usually exhibits poor cycling stability due to the low intrinsic electrical conductivity and huge volume change induced by the alloying reaction with Li. In this study, we present a double protection strategy by fabricating graphene/carbon-coated Si(More)
We report herein an efficient eye-safe Raman laser, which is based upon Nd:YVO₄₋YVO₄ and in-band pumped by a wavelength-locked laser diode array at 878.6 nm. By virtue of mitigated thermal load and improved pump absorption, a maximum average output power of 5.2 W at 1525 nm is obtained under the incident pump power of 30.6 W with the pulse repetition(More)
Steady-state visual evoked potentials (SSVEP) are the visual system responses to a repetitive visual stimulus flickering with the constant frequency and of great importance in the study of brain activity using scalp electroencephalography (EEG) recordings. However, the reference influence for the investigation of SSVEP is generally not considered in(More)
Improving the Li storage properties of a Si negative electrode is of great significance for Li-ion batteries. A major challenge is to fabricate Si-based active materials with good electronic conduction and structural integrity in the process of discharging and charging. In this study, novel Si nanoparticles-graphene composites have been synthesized by(More)
Capillary pressure has a great influence on the percolation of oil-water two-phase. We find that the seepage resistance of oil-water two-phase in ultra-low permeability reservoir is complex and the capillary pressure presents dynamic variation features through water flooding experiment. In this paper, first, we study the variation features of seepage(More)
Hilbert-Huang transform is a new time-frequency method. The essence of the method is empirical mode decomposition. This decomposition method is adaptive, and, therefore, highly efficient. Since the decomposition is based on the local characteristic time scale of the signal, it is applicable to non-stationary processes. The completeness, local orthogonality(More)
Pot experiment with discarded greenish mudstone from large opencut coal mine as test soil was conducted to study the application of ectomycorrhizal fungi in the ecological reconstruction of fragile ecological belt of large opencut coal mine of Huolinhe region, Inner Mongolia. The result showed that after the greenish mudstone was inoculated with(More)
Though researchers spent a lot of effort to develop treatments for neuropsychiatric disorders, the poor translation of drug efficacy data from animals to human hampered the success of these therapeutic approaches in human. Pharmaceutical industry is challenged by low clinical success rates for new drug registration. To maximize the success in drug(More)
A multisegmented Nd:YVO4 laser operating at 1342 nm that is in-band pumped by a wavelength-locked 878.6 nm laser diode is reported here. We achieve an output power of 12.45 W at 1342 nm for an absorbed pump power of 35.6 W, corresponding to an optical-to-optical efficiency of 34.9% and a slope efficiency of 36.1%. To the best of our knowledge, it is the(More)
