Idiopathic Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis as an Autoimmune Disease with Neutralizing Antibody against Granulocyte/Macrophage Colony-Stimulating Factor
Idiopathic pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (I-PAP) is a rare disease of unknown etiology in which the alveoli fill with lipoproteinaceous material. We report here that I-PAP is an autoimmune diseaseExpand

Quasi-solid-state dye-sensitized solar cells using room temperature molten salts and a low molecular weight gelator.
A dye-sensitized solar cell fabricated using the room temperature molten salt, 1-hexyl-3-methylimidazolium iodide, iodine and a low molecular weight gelator as a quasisolid-state electrolyte showed aExpand

Dye-sensitized TiO2 solar cells using imidazolium-type ionic liquid crystal systems as effective electrolytes.
A novel ionic liquid crystal (ILC) system (C(12)MImI/I(2)) with a smectic A phase used as an electrolyte for a dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) showed the higher short-circuit current density (J(SC))Expand

Ionic liquid crystal as a hole transport layer of dye-sensitized solar cells.
Use of a new ionic liquid crystal, 1-dodecyl-3-methylimidazolium iodide, and iodine as an electrolyte of dye-sensitized solar cells leads to a high short circuit photocurrent density and a highExpand

The Effects of Sevoflurane and Propofol on Glucose Metabolism Under Aerobic Conditions in Fed Rats
BACKGROUND: Recent studies reported that intraoperative hyperglycemia is an independent risk factor for mortality and morbidity related to surgery. Volatile anesthetics, such as sevoflurane, impairExpand

Spontaneous angiographic regression of cerebral arteriovenous malformations: angiographic disappearance is not the real cure.
Angiographically occult arteriovenous malformations (AOAVMs) are poorly understood. AOAVMs include spontaneous regression of cerebral AVMs. Here we discuss spontaneous angiographical regression ofExpand

Origin of enhancement in open-circuit voltage by adding ZnO to nanocrystalline SnO2 in dye-sensitized solar cells.
SnO2 + ZnO working electrodes for dye-sensitized solar cells were made by mixing a nanocrystalline SnO2 colloidal dispersion with ZnO or Zn(CH3COO)2. Addition of ZnO or Zn(CH3COO)2 enhanced theExpand
