A reduction in gray matter volume is common in patients with chronic back pain, and different types of pain are associated with gray matter abnormalities in distinct brain regions. To examine differences in brain morphology in patients with low back pain or neck and upper back pain, we investigated changes in gray matter volume in chronic back pain patients(More)
Attention deficits have been repeatedly reported via neuropsychological assessment in previous literature in patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP). However, there are few functional neuroimaging studies of patients with CLBP during attention processing, and the exact underlying neural mechanisms are yet to be elucidated. We used functional magnetic(More)
It should be urgently better understood of the mechanism that contributes cancer aggressiveness. Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) plays a fundamental role in tumor progression and metastasis formation by invasion, resistance to cell death and senescence, resistance to chemotherapy and immunotherapy, immune surveillance, immunosuppression and(More)
This study was designed to investigate the catalytic oxidation performance of modified GAC by Fe(NO3), and (NH4)2S2O8 in the process of H2O2. The effect of the initial concentration of H2O2, initial dye concentration, catalyst dosage, initial pH and temperature on the reaction was discussed. The results show that the catalyst of Fe/S/GAC has a better(More)
This paper reports on specific open and interconnected CO(2) foams of poly(L-lactic acid). The effect of varying gas concentration and hence physical changes induced by CO(2) has been investigated and thus used to generate specific structures. The developed morphologies have a skin core structure with larger pores in the core and open and interconnected(More)
This work reports on the effect of CO2 at subcritical conditions and the gaseous state on the telechelic poly(epsilon-caprolactone) polymers. The tested polymers are semi-crystalline in nature and thus the effect of functional groups and their overall contribution to foaming and formation of microstructures with open-cell morphollogy is discussed.
We propose a ‘geometric Chevalley-Warning’ conjecture, that is a motivic extension of the Chevalley-Warning theorem in number theory. It is equivalent to a particular case of a recent conjecture of F. Brown and O.Schnetz. In this paper, we show the conjecture is true for linear hyperplane arrangements, quadratic and singular cubic hypersurfaces of any(More)
G banding karyotype analysis of peripheral lymphocytes in 217 patients with azoospermia or severe oligospermia were performed and the Y-chromosome AZFc region from 7 cases with Y chromosome abnormality was amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Out of 187 cases with azoospermia, 77 patients or 41.18% had chromosome abnormalities, including number and(More)
