The present study recorded both behavioral data and event-related brain potentials to examine the effectiveness of a perception-only training and a perception-plus-production training procedure on the intentional and unintentional perception of lexical tone by native English listeners. In the behavioral task, both the perception-only and the(More)
OBJECTIVES High-risk human papillomavirus (hrHPV) is the primary cause of cervical cancer. As Chlamydia trachomatis is also linked to cervical cancer, its role as a potential co-factor in the development of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 2 or higher was examined. METHODS The placebo arms of two large, multinational, clinical trials of an(More)
A corrosion sensor for monitoring the corrosion state of cover mortar was developed. The sensor was tested in cement mortar, with and without the addition of chloride to simulate the adverse effects of chloride-contaminated environmental conditions on concrete structures. In brief, a linear polarization resistance method combined with an embeddable(More)
Capsaicin has multiple pharmacological activities including antioxidant, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory activities. However, its clinical application is limited due to its poor aqueous solubility, gastric irritation, and low oral bioavailability. This research was aimed at preparing sustained-release matrix pellets of capsaicin to enhance its oral(More)
This study investigated the effect of solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) and temperature on a chain length and photosynthetic performance of diatom Chaetorceros curvisetus. The cells were cultured in large quartz tubes and exposed to PAR, PAR + UV-A (PA), or PAR + UV-A + UV-B (PAB) radiation at 20°C and 28°C for six days, respectively. After recovery for 1(More)
