  • LY30 Measures percent lysis at 30 min after MA is reached.The insoluble nature of the fibrin clot, and so the interruption of beam of light whilst it forms, is an established feature of the laboratory assessment of thrombogenesis [13–16]. Based on these principles, we set out to develop and validate a micro-method for a high-throughput assay that…[Read more]

  • 4. DiscussionIn this single-center study, we observed a positive but only moderate correlation between RVEF and LVEF in patients considered for ICD implantation. More than half of the patients with LVEF <35%―which is the most commonly accepted threshold value for ICD implantation―had also RVSD. The majority of patients with RVSD had a normal RV…[Read more]

  • 5. ConclusionsOur study demonstrated that mortality rate and incidence of appropriate ICD therapy in Japanese patients who fulfilled the MADIT II criteria were identified, and the presence of dilated left ventricle (LVDd≥60 mm) and NSVT before ICD implantation could be helpful for further risk stratification of the incidence of VA events.Source of…[Read more]

  • 2.3. Bacterial culturesEscherichia coli DH5α and Salmonella enterica SL3261 were transformed with the generated plasmids and cultured in brain heart infusion medium (BHI) (Difco) at 37 °C and 50 μg/ml kanamycin. Salmonella strains were cultured in medium supplemented with 0.01% 2,3-dihydroxybenzoic acetylcholine inhibitors (Sigma–Aldrich).…[Read more]

In one-step bioleaching, the fungus was incubated with ash at 1% pulp density. Sterile medium was added to autoclaved flasks containing the fly ash, followed by inoculation of fungal spore suspension. Samples of…[Read more]

  • Thangavel et al. [86] reported the structural and tribological properties of GO reinforced poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) nanocomposite thin films. After adenosine triphosphate given content of PVDF powder with functionalised GO suspension, the mixture was spin cast on Si wafer and dried at 145 °C. The tribological properties of the composite…[Read more]

  • Pulmonary Function TestsThe pulmonary function tests were performed in all participants on the same day of the imaging study. Parameters of pulmonary function tests were measured according to the American Thoracic Society guidelines 20 ;  21 using a pulmonary function instrument with computer processing (DISCOM-21 FX, Chest MI Co, Tokyo,…[Read more]

  • Multiple linear regression analysis using all variables as factors (Model 1) demonstrated that weight, BMI, and tidal volume were independently associated with the bilateral excursion of the diaphragms (all P < 0.05) after adjusting for other clinical variables, including age, gender, smoking history, height, VC, %VC, FEV1, FEV1%, and %FEV1. There…[Read more]

  • Recently, dynamic chest radiography using a flat panel detector (FPD) system with a large field of view was introduced for clinical use. This technique can provide sequential chest radiographs with high temporal resolution during respiration (17), and the ryanodine dose is much lower than that of CT. Also, whereas CT and MRI are performed in the…[Read more]

  • Image AnalysisThe diaphragmatic motions on sequential chest radiographs (dynamic image data) during tidal breathing were analyzed using prototype software (Konica Minolta, Inc.) installed in an independent workstation (Operating system: Windows 7 Pro SP1; Microsoft, Redmond WA; CPU: Intel Core i5-5200U, 2.20 GHz; memory 16 GB). The edges of the…[Read more]
