Epidemiology of esophageal cancer in Yanting - regional report of a national screening programme in China.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Yanting in Sichuan Province is one of the highest risk areas of esophageal cancer (EC) in the world. We here summarize the epidemiology of EC in Yanting using data from the… Expand
On the physics of cyclic steam stimulation
Steam fracturing as done during cyclic steam stimulation is an effective thermal process for initiating recovery from viscous oil reservoirs such as oil sands reservoirs found in Alberta, Canada and… Expand
Failure of double friction pendulum bearings under pulse-type motions
Summary Although the behavior of friction sliding bearings is well understood, the failure behavior has not been thoroughly investigated. However, predicting and understanding the failure of… Expand
Segregated Conductive Ultrahigh-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene Composites Containing High-Density Polyethylene as Carrier Polymer of Graphene Nanosheets
This article reports a novel conductive ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) composite with a segregated and double percolated structure, in which graphene nanosheets (GNSs) form prefect… Expand
The total flavones from Semen cuscutae reverse the reduction of testosterone level and the expression of androgen receptor gene in kidney-yang deficient mice.
OBJECTIVE To discover the effect of the total flavones from Semen cuscutae (TFSC) on the kidney-yang deficiency male mouse, especially on hormone levels and the androgen receptor (AR) mRNA and… Expand
Simple and label-free electrochemical assay for signal-on DNA hybridization directly at undecorated graphene oxide.
Exploring graphene oxide (GO), DNA hybridization detection usually relies on either GO decoration or DNA sequences labeling. The former endows GO with desired chemical, optical, and biological… Expand
Consensus on the digestive endoscopic tunnel technique
With the digestive endoscopic tunnel technique (DETT), many diseases that previously would have been treated by surgery are now endoscopically curable by establishing a submucosal tunnel between the… Expand
Application of a kinematic-cyclic plasticity model in simulating sand liquefaction
The mechanical behavior of saturated soil is mainly governed by the interaction between the soil skeleton and the pore fluid, and this interaction may lead to significant loss of strength known as… Expand
Relay Node Deployment for Wireless Sensor Networks Based on PSO
In this paper, we propose a new algorithm to assist in the placement of nodes for a WSN who monitors an underground tunnel infrastructure. Expand
To limit forces or displacements: Collapse study of steel frames isolated by sliding bearings with and without restraining rims
Abstract Sliding isolation bearings can provide enhanced seismic performance for both structural and non-structural components under design level earthquakes. However, the ultimate performance once… Expand
