A combination of green tea extract and l-theanine (LGNC-07) has been reported to have beneficial effects on cognition in animal studies. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, the effect of LGNC-07 on memory and attention in subjects with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) was investigated. Ninety-one MCI subjects whose Mini Mental State… (More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) microscopy of up to 1-5-microm resolutions have been reported previously. The tested phantom structures, however, had widths one order of magnitude bigger than the reported resolutions, e.g., spherical beads or capillary tubes of tens-of-micron diameters or wall thicknesses have been imaged. In this study, we fabricated structures… (More)
This study attempts to compare and assess the performance of a wearable electrocardiogram (ECG) using a sensing fabric electrode and a Bluetooth network with a conventional ECG. A one-lead ECG examination was performed using Bioshirt and an iWorx 214 while walking or running at 3, 6, and 9 km per hour. A correlation coefficient of a heart rate variability… (More)
BACKGROUND Drug repositioning is the process of finding new indications for existing drugs. Its importance has been dramatically increasing recently due to the enormous increase in new drug discovery cost. However, most of the previous molecular-centered drug repositioning work is not able to reflect the end-point physiological activities of drugs because… (More)
Pandemic is a typical spreading phenomenon that can be observed in the human society and is dependent on the structure of the social network. The Susceptible-Infective-Recovered (SIR) model describes spreading phenomena using two spreading factors; contagiousness (β) and recovery rate (γ). Some network models are trying to reflect the social network, but… (More)
Controlled oxidation of palladium nanoparticles provided high-valent PdIV oxo-clusters which efficiently promote directed C-H halogenation reactions. In addition, palladium nanoparticles can undergo changes in oxidation states to provide both high-valent PdIV and low-valent Pd0 species within one system, and thus a tandem reaction of C-H halogenation and… (More)
Rh(0)/Rh(iii) core-shell nanoparticles were prepared by surface oxidation of Rh nanoparticles with N-bromosuccinimide. They were employed as heterogeneous catalysts for cyclic carbonate synthesis from propylene oxide and CO2, and exhibited high activity and excellent recyclability due to Lewis acidic Rh(iii) species on the shells.
Stereoselective cis-trans isomerism of a Co(III)-N2O2 complex has been achieved by coordinating chiral vicinal diamines. The induced metal-centered helical chirality can be exploited for chirality amplification and asymmetric coordination chemistry.
The Pd(iv) species, known to be critical intermediates in homogeneous catalysis, were successfully generated on the surface of Pd nanocatalysts via oxidation with iodobenzene dichloride (PhICl2) or N-chlorosuccinimide (NCS). In particular, the Pd@SiO2 yolk-shell nanocatalyst activated by PhICl2 showed high reactivity and superior stability to the other… (More)
