Liver cirrhosis occurs as a consequence of many chronic liver diseases that are prevalent worldwide. Here we characterize the gut microbiome in liver cirrhosis by comparing 98 patients and 83 healthy control individuals. We build a reference gene set for the cohort containing 2.69 million genes, 36.1% of which are novel. Quantitative metagenomics reveals… (More)
We report the application of statistical multivariate analysis to optimize the process parameters (including temperature, O 2 pressure, concentration of benzyl alcohol, Mn content, and K:Mn molar ratio) in the oxidation of benzyl alcohol using molecular oxygen over K-Mn/C catalysts. This multi-regression model, based on 38 experimental runs, shows… (More)
This paper presents a model-aided approach to the development of catalysts for CO oxidation. This is in contrast to the traditional methodology whereby experiments are guided based on experience and intuition of chemists. The proposed approach operates in two stages. To screen a promising combination of active phase, promoter and support material, a… (More)
BACKGROUND A novel avian-origin influenza A (H7N9) virus emerged and spread among humans in Eastern China in 2013. Prophylactic treatment with antibiotics and probiotics for secondary infection is as important as antiviral treatment. This study aims to assess the ability of probiotic treatment to restore internal homeostasis under antibiotic pressure and to… (More)
Date The final copy of this thesis has been examined by the signatories, and we find that both the content and the form meet acceptable presentation standards of scholarly work in the above mentioned discipline. The multiresolution estimator, originally a wavelet-based method for density estimation, was recently extended for estimation of hazard functions.… (More)
The catalytic activity of Pt/CNT for benzyl alcohol aerobic oxidation was remarkably improved by decorating iron oxide on Pt nanoparticles, and electrochemical measurements evidenced the enhanced activation of oxygen and benzyl alcohol at the FeO(x)/Pt interface.
