The aim of this study is to examine the effects of treatment with varenicline, a partial agonist at the α4β2 and full agonist at the α7 nicotine acetylcholine receptor, on cognitive impairments in people with schizophrenia. In all, 120 clinically stable people with schizophrenia participated in randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled 8-week trial.(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was performed to identify the risk factors for reduction loss after locking plate fixation of proximal humerus fractures. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING University trauma center. PATIENTS AND INTERVENTION We retrospectively evaluated 252 patients who had been surgically treated for proximal humeral fractures with locking(More)
The feasibility of new InSbTe (IST) chalcogenide materials at the deposition temperatures of 225 and 250 degrees C using metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) for phase-change random access memory (PRAM) applications was investigated. Samples grown at 225 degrees C consisted of the main InTe phase, including a small amount of Sb. On the other hand,(More)
Currently, unprecedented levels of damage arising from major weather events have been experienced in a number of major cities worldwide. Furthermore, the frequency and the scale of these disasters appear to be increasing and this is viewed by some as tangible proof of climate change. In the urbanized areas sewer overflows and resulting inundation are(More)
We introduce a simple preparation method for ultrathin carbon support films that is especially useful for high-resolution electron microscopy (HREM) of nanoparticles. Oxidized iron nanoparticles were used as a test sample in a demonstration of this method. The film qualities are discussed on the basis of electron-energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) and image(More)
While a conventional single- or double-row repair technique could be applied for repair of C-shaped tears, a different surgical strategy should be considered for repair of U- or L-shaped tears because they typically have complex patterns with anterior, posterior, or both mobile leaves. This study was performed to examine the outcomes of the modified(More)
Bismuth nanocrystals for a nanoscale floating gate memory device are self-assembled in Bi(2) Mg(2/3) Nb(4/3) O(7) (BMN) dielectric films grown at room temperature by radio-frequency sputtering. The TEM cross-sectional image shows the "real" structure grown on a Si (001) substrate. The image magnified from the dotted box (red color) in the the(More)
