It has been demonstrated that breviscapine is able to treat coronary disease and reduce the inflammatory response; however, there are no relevant reports concerning its effects on the expression of inflammatory factors in acute lung injury induced by left heart ischemic reperfusion and the underlying mechanisms. In this study, we created a left heart(More)
Tumor suppressor in lung cancer 1 (TSLC1) is tightly implicated in a variety of biological processes and plays critical roles in tumor development and progression. However, the roles of TSLC1 in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC) remain to be unraveled. Here, we reported the TSLC1 gene that was significantly downregulated in CSCC tissues and cells,(More)
Condition assessment of cables has gained considerable attention for the bridge safety. A magnetic flux leakage and magnetostrictive guided wave hybrid transducer is provided to inspect bridge cables. The similarities and differences between the two methods are investigated. The hybrid transducer for bridge cables consists of an aluminum framework, climbing(More)
The non-contact magnetostrictive sensor (MsS) has been widely used in the guided wave testing of pipes, cables, and so on. However, it has a disadvantage of low excitation efficiency. A new method for enhancing the excitation efficiency of the non-contact MsS for pipe inspection using guided waves, by adjusting the axial length of the excitation magnetic(More)
The magnetostrictive guided wave sensor with a single induced winding cannot distinguish axially symmetric from non-axially symmetric features in a pipe, because it is impossible for the sensor to detect the non-axially symmetric mode waves. When we study the effect of the change of the magnetic field in the air zone for receiving the longitudinal guided(More)
Electromagnetic acoustic transducers (EMATs) can generate non-dispersive T(0,1) mode guided waves in a metallic pipe for nondestructive testing (NDT) by using a periodic permanent magnet (PPM) EMAT circular array. In order to enhance the excitation efficiency of the sensor, the effects of varying the number of elements of the array on the excitation(More)
Pulsed eddy current (PEC) testing technology is widely used in the field of large area corrosion detection. According to the material attributes of detected objects, there are mainly two fields in which PEC technology is used: Non-ferromagnetic and ferromagnetic material testing. When the testing object is ferromagnetic, the decaying speed of the received(More)
BACKGROUND Syphilis with ocular involvement has reemerged as a critical health problem. The aim of the present study was to explore the clinical manifestations and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) status in ocular syphilis in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-negative patients. METHODS The clinical records of patients with ocular syphilis presenting to the(More)
A new electromagnetic acoustic transducer (EMAT) design, employing a special structure of the permanent magnet chain, is proposed to generate and receive longitudinal guided waves for pipe inspection based on the magnetostriction mechanism. Firstly, a quantitative analysis of the excitation forces shows the influence of the radial component can be ignored.(More)
