We report the design and synthesis of Ir-complex functionalized CdSe/ZnS quantum dots (QDs), in which the QD plays a key role in imaging, while the Ir-complex acts as a sensitizer to produce singlet oxygen; this conceptual design presents a novel scheme in both bio-imaging and photodynamic therapy.
OBJECTIVES To compare the short- and long-term hearing outcomes after successful inlay cartilage tympanoplasty between patients with small (≤25%) and large (≥50%) eardrums perforations. METHODS This is a retrospective case series study conducted in a tertiary referral center. Twenty-five patients who underwent 27 procedures were enrolled. Their mean age(More)
In this paper, the authors proposed a local motion planner with robot controller of the mobile manipulator to grasp the object in dynamic environments without any prior knowledge of environments. Our local motion planner is based on the concept of potential field and composed of the attractive and repulsive vectors. Then, the local motion planner decides(More)
This paper presents our new intelligent interactive robot, which is constructed to eagerly provide multi-functional services in an office environment. In order to endow a full interactive capability of our robots for realizing so-called human-robot interaction (HRI) , we propose sensor fusion based human detection and tracking system and human pose(More)
BACKGROUND Seromucinous hamartoma, a type of epithelial hamartoma, is a rare benign glandular proliferation of the sinonasal tract and nasopharynx. Herein, we present 2 rare cases of seromucinous hamartoma arising in the nasal cavity medial to the middle turbinate. METHODS AND RESULTS This is a case report of 2 patients diagnosed with seromucinous(More)
We report the synthesis of 3-(2-aminoethyl)-5-ol-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine (7-azaserotonin), which may potentially serve as an agonist or antagonist of serotonin receptors. In alcohols, the solvent (e.g., ethanol) catalyzed proton-transfer reaction takes place for 7-azaserotonin in the excited state, resulting in dual emission. Conversely, excited-state(More)
Cigarette smoke plays a substantial role in the development of airway inflammatory diseases, including asthma and chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Interleukin (IL)-17A might contribute to cigarette smoke-related inflammation of the airway. This study aimed to investigate the association between cigarette smoking and IL-17A expression in the nasal tissues of(More)
RATIONALE Plasma cell neoplasms are categorized by neoplastic proliferation of a single clone of plasma cells which produce a monoclonal immunoglobulin. Plasma cell neoplasms can present as a solitary plasmacytoma or as multiple myeloma. Both of them can progress to multiple myeloma. Once a diagnosis of plasmacytoma has been made, thorough examinations(More)
