BACKGROUND Despite strong laboratory evidence that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) could prevent prostate cancer, epidemiological studies have so far reported conflicting results. Most studies were limited by lack of information on dosage and duration of use of the different classes of NSAIDs. METHODS We conducted a nested case-control(More)
Transient currents of reverse micelles in a non-polar solvent from voltage step stimuli were studied to investigate the electrophoretic behavior of the charges. It showed various time-dependent transients depending on the applied voltage and the charge content. A one-dimensional drift-diffusion model could reproduce the behaviors for various conditions.(More)
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are a widely prescribed class of antidepressants. Laboratory and epidemiologic evidence suggests that a prolactin-mediated mechanism secondary to increased serotonin levels at neuronal synapses could lead to a potentially carcinogenic effect of SSRIs. In this population-based case-control study, we evaluated(More)
Charge motion in an electrophoretic display was modeled for multiple charged species with different mobilities. As charges move, the lowered electric field by local depletion of charges near electrodes makes the charges in the middle move slower. It takes more time to collect all the charges with a given voltage for higher initial charge concentrations.(More)
Transient currents of reverse micelles in a non-polar solvent from voltage step stimuli were studied to investigate the electrophoretic behavior of the charges. The current showed a sharp peak right after the voltage application and decayed afterward while it exhibited various time-dependent transients depending on the applied voltage and the charge content(More)
