Recently, some attempts have been made to enhance the gas barrier properties of semicrystalline polymers by precisely controlling the arrangement of their impermeable crystalline lamellae. However, it is still a great challenge to achieve regular arrangement of the lamellae along the direction perpendicular to the gas diffusion path, especially using(More)
Until recently, the histologic diagnosis of obstetrical and gynecologic neoplasia was based principally on morphologic criteria. However, interobserver reproducibility for entities such as squamous intraepithelial, endometrial, and trophoblastic disease varies widely between observers. This inherent variability in interpretation between individuals has led(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the clinical anatomy of the transversalis fascia (TF) and to explore the intertransversalis fascia approach in urologic laparoscopic operations (ULOs). DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Two academic hospitals. OTHER PARTICIPANTS Data from 1217 urologic laparoscopic or open operations and 10 laparoscopic hernia repairs were analyzed(More)
In routine practice, the evaluation of breast excisional biopsy specimens is assisted by the use of various tissue marking inks to delineate surgical margins and preserve tissue orientation. These inks may simulate microcalcifications in specimen and tissue block radiographs. The magnitude of this problem is studied by systematically identifying the factors(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) infections of the genital mucosa classically present as warts (condylomata) and are traditionally defined by the presence of viral cytopathic effect (koilocytosis). In recent years, HPV has been detected in vulvar epithelial changes lacking koilocytosis, including squamous papillomas and lesions closely resembling seborrheic(More)
This study aimed to investigate the potential role of IL-6 in acute T-cell-mediated renal rejection (ACR) during different periods post-transplantation. Fifty-three patients with ACR (32 of whom developed ACR within the first month; 12, between 2 and 6 months; and 9, between 7 and 12 months post-transplantation), 31 patients with delayed graft function(More)
The purpose was to compare the effectiveness and safety of calcineurin inhibitors (CNIs) withdrawal and continued therapies in kidney transplant recipients. We searched the PubMed, MEDLINE, Springer, Elsevier Science Direct, Cochrane Library and Google Scholar up to May 2014. Risk ratio (RR) or weighted mean difference (WMD) and their 95 % confidence(More)
Melt blending poly(L-lactide) (PLLA) with various biodegradable polymers has been thought to be the most economic and effective route to toughen PLLA without compromising its biodegradability. Unfortunately, only very limited improvement in notched impact toughness can be achieved, although most of these blends show significant enhancement in tensile(More)
Cylinder- and bamboo-shaped boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) have been synthesized in large scale via a facile chemical vapor reaction route using ammonia borane as a precursor. The structure and chemical composition of the as-synthesized BNNTs are extensively characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, high-resolution transmission(More)
The outcome of renal transplantation is difficult to predict, even with an allograft biopsy. The aim of this study was to develop a sensitive, specific and noninvasive method for prediction of acute cellular rejection (ACR). Luminex analysis was used to determine the levels of 95 cytokines/chemokines and their soluble receptors in sera from recipients with:(More)
