BACKGROUND Limited information documents the prevention and treatment benefits of a hand care regimen using moisturizer in a controlled manner for employees in typical manufacturing situations. OBJECTIVE The objective was to assess the effectiveness of a comprehensive skin care program including skin conditioning lotion in multiple manufacturing(More)
Fine epitope mapping of EF13D, a highly potent neutralizing monoclonal antibody specific for the anthrax edema factor (EF), was accomplished through random mutagenesis and yeast surface display. A yeast-displayed library of single point mutants of an EF domain III (DIII), comprising amino acids 624-800, was constructed by random mutagenesis and screened for(More)
Amorphous (Ni0.6Nb0.4)1−xZrx membranes were investigated by means of X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetry, differential thermal analysis and tensile modulus measurements. Crystallization occurs only above 673 K, and even after hydrogenation the membranes retain their mainly amorphous nature. However, after exposure to gaseous hydrogen, the temperature(More)
Ni-Nb-Zr amorphous membranes, prepared by melt-spinning, show great potential for replacing crystalline Pd-based materials in the field of hydrogen purification to an ultrapure grade (>99.999%). In this study, we investigate the temperature evolution of the structure of an amorphous ribbon with the composition Ni32Nb28Zr30Cu10 (expressed in atom %) by means(More)
Myopathy is a rare manifestation of idiopathic hypoparathyroidism. We report a 48-year-old man with a 6-year history of muscle pain and elevated creatine kinase levels. Laboratory analysis revealed low serum calcium, inappropriately low-normal parathyroid hormone, elevated phosphorus, and normal 25-hydroxy vitamin D levels. The patient was diagnosed with(More)
Amorphous metallic membranes display promising properties for hydrogen purification up to an ultrapure grade (purity > 99.999%). The hydrogen permeability through amorphous membranes has been widely studied in the literature. In this work we focus on two additional properties, which should be considered before possible application of such materials: the(More)
A new high-temperature XRD instrument, utilizing multilayer optics and a custom furnace, has been developed to maximize sensitivity and minimize problems associated with sample displacement. This paper will describe the technical specifications of the new instrument, and will present temperature calibration with standard reference materials and measurement(More)
Unquestionably the world’s leading advocate of the role of symbiosis in evolution, Lynn Margulis died at her home in Amherst, MA on November 22, 2011 after suffering a stroke. She was Distinguished University Professor of Geosciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and a member of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA. Furthermore, Lynn was(More)
