In order to understand the childhood Salmonella enterocolitis in Taitung, we retrospectively collected the patients with the diagnosis of acute enterocolitis who were admitted to the pediatric wards of Taitung branch of Mackay Memorial Hospital from January 1, 1995 to December 31, 1998. Salmonella enterocolitis accounted for 16.8% of the total cases of(More)
The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment has measured a nonzero value for the neutrino mixing angle θ(13) with a significance of 5.2 standard deviations. Antineutrinos from six 2.9 GWth reactors were detected in six antineutrino detectors deployed in two near (flux-weighted baseline 470 m and 576 m) and one far (1648 m) underground experimental halls. With(More)
We report a case of acute poisoning in a 48-year-old man who presented with chest pain, abdominal pain, dizziness, sweatiness, blurred vision, and severe hypotension after ingestion of honey.

Synthesis of a series of fused pyrazole tetrahydrofluorenone analogs which are potent, ERbeta subtype selective ligands is described. Analogs possessing subnanomolar ERbeta binding, greater than 100-fold ERbeta-selectivity, and oral bioavailability are reported.
This study comprehensively investigated the influences of salinity, exposure concentration and time on the aggregate size, surface charge and dissolution of zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO-NPs; 20nm) in seawater, and examined the interacting effect of salinity and waterborne exposure of ZnO-NPs on the marine diatom Thalassiosira pseudonana for 96h. We found(More)
