Electrically conducting polymeric membranes were prepared by incorporating multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) into bacterial cellulose pellicles produced by Gluconacetobacter xylinum. The MWCNTs were dispersed in a surfactant (cationic cetyl trimethylammonium bromide) solution, and cellulose pellicles were dipped into the solution for 6, 12, and 24 h.(More)
The regulation of megakaryocytic differentiation is poorly understood. Using K562 cells, which can partly recapitulate the process in response to phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA), we performed microarray-based gene expression profiling to identify genes that play significant roles in megakaryopoiesis. Here, we describe the function of FosB, an AP-1(More)
More and more researches on household mobile robots are being undertaken these days. Since commercial cleaning robots are now available for sale to the public, robots are being used in private homes. As the quality of household robots improves, docking stations, which have a variety of uses, including as automatic recharging ports, have become increasingly(More)
A case of squamous cell carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma in a palate is presented and comments on diagnostic criterias are described. The patient was 36-year-old male presenting with an ovoid elevated palate mass for 6 months. The tumor located in the junctional area of soft and hard palate. The mucosa was diffusely ulcerated and the mass focally tightly(More)
BACKGROUND For more than two decades, Epi Info software has been used to meet the data management, analysis, and mapping needs of public health professionals in more than 181 countries and 13 languages. Until now, most Epi Info systems have been relatively simple, mainly because of a lack of detailed and structured guidance for developing complex systems.(More)
BACKGROUND Intractable chronic scalp ulcers with cranial bone exposure can occur along the incision after cranioplasty, posing challenges for clinicians. They occur as a result of severe scarring, poor blood circulation of the scalp, and focal osteomyelitis. We successfully repaired these scalp ulcers using a vascularized bipedicled pericranial flap after(More)
Clinical prediction indicators such as the pneumonia severity index (PSI) and CURB-65 score are useful, but they are complex and often not followed. Therefore, biomarkers that improve hospital outcome predictions are emerging. This study evaluated the prognostic value of a new sepsis biomarker, serum lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) concentrations, in(More)
Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) are considered to be ideal multifunctional materials for biorelated applications, but there is still some controversy regarding their toxicity. In addition, the poor dispersibility of MWCNTs in either water or organic solvents has limited their practical applications. Therefore, obtaining a good dispersion is one of the(More)
