Falls represent a major care and cost problem to health and social services world-widely, since 50% of falls result in an injury. In this work, is proposed a methodology to evaluate protective pads materials and geometry performance, in order to reduce impact results in a fall event. Since the material properties and the pad geometry are the key factors to make the protection possible when a fall event occurs, our approach relies on the use of mechanical tests to evaluate the properties of the m...

Toll-like receptors play important roles in regulating immunity against microbial infections. Toll-like receptor 8 (TLR8) belongs to a subfamily comprising TLR7, TLR8 and TLR9. Human TLR8 mediates anti-viral immunity by recognizing ssRNA viruses, and triggers potent anti-viral and antitumor immune responses upon ligation by synthetic small molecular weight ligands. Interestingly, distinct from human TLR8, mouse TLR8 was not responsive to ligand stimulation in the absence of polyT-oligodeoxynucle...

Aims and objectives To explore how spouses of patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease experience their role as informal caregiver. Background Informal caregiver spouses are of pivotal importance in the way that patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease cope with their daily life, including their opportunity to stay at home and avoid hospitalisations in the last stages of the disease. However, caregiving is associated with increased morbidity and mortality among careg...

Background The family under investigation consists of parents and two daughters, one being the proband. The mother and the proband have elongated facial features. The father and second daughter appear normal. The older daughter presented for elective tonsillectomy aged 8 years. She had severe masseter spasm after suxamethonium. The rest of the procedure was carried out under total intravenous anaesthesia. No blood gas analysis could be done, but a creatine kinase next day was significantly eleva...

Hydrogen solubility in heavy undefined petroleum fractions is estimated by taking as starting point a method of characterization based on functional groups []. Such method provides properties entering into equations of states and molecular pseudostructures formed by non-integer numbers of functional groups. Using Vapor-Liquid Equilibria (VLE) data from binary mixtures of known compounds, interaction parameters between hydrogen and the calculated functional groups were estimated. Besides, ...

A methodology proposed in a previous paper [ Ind. Eng. Chem. Res. 51 , 14188-14198] for thermodynamic characterization of undefined petroleum fractions was applied to gas-condensate fluids. Using this methodology, input parameters of cubic equations of state and their mixing rules, critical properties and chemical pseudostructures are determined for undefined fractions by minimizing their Gibbs free energy. The results show the feasibility of applying this approach to gas-condensat...

The production of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA; bioplastics) from waste or surplus feedstocks using mixed microbial consortia (MMC) and aerobic dynamic feeding (ADF) is a growing field within mixed culture biotechnology. This study aimed to optimize a 2DE workflow to investigate the proteome dynamics of an MMC synthesizing PHA from fermented dairy manure. To mitigate the challenges posed to effective 2DE by this complex sample matrix, the bacterial biomass was purified using Accudenz gradient cent...

Background: “Rapidly Improving Stroke Symptoms” (RISS) is a major exclusion criterion for tPA treatment in acute ischemic stroke (AIS). Objectives: To explore various definitions used for RISS and reported clinical outcomes of RISS patients, treated and untreated with tPA. Methods: A systematic review of the literature(through Aug 5, 2013)for studies reporting definition or outcome data for RISS or both, was performed by 3 independent reviewers using prespecified medical subjects heading (MeSH) ...

The cosmeceutical category is an undefined, unclassified, and unregulated area of dermatology that is yet in its infancy. Traditional cosmeceuticals involve the topical application of biologically active ingredients that affect the skin barrier and overall skin health. The ability of these ingredients to enhance skin functioning depends on how they are formulated into products that can maintain the integrity of the active ingredient, deliver it in a biologically active form to the skin, r...

The term big data has become ubiquitous. Owing to a shared origin between academia, industry and the media there is no single unified definition, and various stakeholders provide diverse and often contradictory definitions. The lack of a consistent definition introduces ambiguity and hampers discourse relating to big data. This short paper attempts to collate the various definitions which have gained some degree of traction and to furnish a clear and concise definition of an otherwise ambiguous ...
