PURPOSE Latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) in young children may progress to severe active tuberculosis (TB) disease and serve as a reservoir for future transmission of TB disease. There are limited data on interferon-γ release assay (IGRA) performance in young children, which our research aims to address by investigating the usefulness of IGRA for the(More)
In this study, a new hydrophilic-hydrophobic transition surface was designed via visible-light-induced photocatalytic perfluorinated silica-based fluorescent carbon nanoparticles (FNPs)/TiO2. Perfluorinated silica-polydopamine hybrid FNPs (f-FNPs) were easily fabricated by carbonization in an emulsion system consisting of tetraethyl orthosilicate and(More)
In this communication, we present a new synthesis method for the fabrication of hybrid metal-Cu2S (M = Pt, FePt) nanocrystals (HNs). The metal-Cu2S HNs were investigated in photocatalytic hydrogen generation as effective co-catalysts on TiO2. The Pt-Cu2S/TiO2 catalyst showed a higher hydrogen generation rate compared with a pure TiO2 catalyst. This(More)
An antibacterial continuous flow microreactor was successfully prepared by sequential mussel-inspired surface engineering of microchannels by using catechol-grafted poly(N-vinylpyrrolidone) and immobilization of near-infrared active Cs0.33WO3 nanoparticles inside the polydimethylsiloxane(PDMS)-based microreactors. Excellent phothothermal antibacterial(More)
