Four types of inorganic nanoparticles stimulate the inflammatory reaction in brain microglia and damage neurons in vitro.
It is suggested that the NPs induced microglial activation and subsequently caused the release of proinflammatory factors that contributed to the dysfunction and cytotoxicity in PC12 cells. Expand
Coupled modelling of tumour angiogenesis, tumour growth and blood perfusion.
The model enables the interactions between angiogenesis and tumour growth, and to study the dynamic response of a solid tumour to the changes in the microenvironment, to be a foundation for further applications such as drug delivery and anti-angiogenic therapies. Expand
An in vitro investigation of the mechanical-chemical and biological properties of calcium phosphate/calcium silicate/bismutite cement for dental pulp capping.
The results suggest that CPCSBi will be a good candidate for use as a dental pulp-capping agent in future. Expand

A saliency detection method based on Gestalt principles in which mid-level Gestalt concepts for low-level saliency are introduced and two smoothing procedures are proposed to uniformly highlight the salient object. Expand
Sputtered oxides used for passivation layers of amorphous InGaZnO thin film transistors
Abstract Four sputtered oxide films (SiO 2 , Al 2 O 3 , Y 2 O 3 and TiO 2 ) along with their passivating amorphous InGaZnO thin film transistors (a-IGZO TFTs) were comparatively studied in thisExpand
Offline Sketch Parsing via Shapeness Estimation
The proposed shapeness estimation technique greatly reduces the number of false positives, resulting in a 96.2% detection rate with only 32 candidate group proposals, which is two orders of magnitude less than existing methods. Expand
Improvements in passivation effect of amorphous InGaZnO thin film transistors
Abstract The performance of amorphous InGaZnO thin film transistors (a-IGZO TFTs) degrades apparently due to “passivation effect”, i.e. back-channel plasma damage from passivation layer deposition.Expand
Key technologies of VSC-HVDC and its application on offshore wind farm in China
In recent years, wind power industry has been flourishing and in China the focus has been gradually shifted from land-based to offshore wind farms. There are many advantages for offshore wind farms,Expand
The key technologies and development of offshore wind farm in China
China is one of the largest energy consumers in the world. Excessive consumption of coal and other primary energy causes serious environmental pollution and energy crisis. China must wean from theExpand
Coupled modeling of tumour angiogenesis, tumour growth, and blood perfusion
This paper proposes a more realistic mathematical simulation method to investigate the dynamic process of tumour angio-genesis by fully coupling the vessel growth, tumour growth and associated bloodExpand
