Determination of Heavy Metal Ions and Organic Pollutants in Water Samples Using Ionic Liquids and Ionic Liquid-Modified Sorbents
Water pollution, especially by inorganic and organic substances, is considered as a critical problem worldwide. Several governmental agencies are listing an increasing number of compounds as serious problems in water because of their toxicity, bioaccumulation, and persistence. In recent decades, there has been considerable research on developing analytical methods of heavy metal ions and organic pollutants from water. Ionic liquids, as the environment-friendly solvents, have been applied in the analytical...

Predictors of Seizure Recurrence after Acute Symptomatic Seizures in Ischemic Stroke Patients
Purpose. Seizure is a well-recognized complication of both remote and acute ischemic strokes. Predictors of seizure recurrence and epilepsy in patients with ischemic stroke who develop acute symptomatic seizures (ASyS) on continuous electroencephalography (cEEG) have not been well studied. Methods. We present a five-year retrospective study of acute and remote ischemic stroke patients who developed ASyS on cEEG. We then identified risk factors for the development of seizure recurrence. Results. Sixty-five...

Systemic Resolvin E1 (RvE1) Treatment Does Not Ameliorate the Severity of Collagen-Induced Arthritis (CIA) in Mice: A Randomized, Prospective, and Controlled Proof of Concept Study
Specialized proresolving mediators (SPRM), which arise from n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3FA), promote resolution of inflammation and may help to prevent progression of an acute inflammatory response into chronic inflammation in patients with arthritis. Thus, this study is aimed at determining whether systemic RvE1 treatment reduces arthritis onset and severity in murine collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) and spontaneous cytokine production by human rheumatoid arthritis (RA) synovial...

Screening for Stereopsis of Children Using an Autostereoscopic Smartphone
Background. The advantage of using an autostereoscopic smartphone is that it can achieve 3D effects without the need for glasses. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether this technology could be utilized to detect stereoacuity. Methods. An autostereoscopic smartphone was used to imitate Lang stereotest I & II, Pass Test 3, Dinosaur Stereoacuity Test, and the Random Dot Stereo Acuity Test to screen the stereopsis of children from 3–6 years old. Results. No significant difference was...

Comparison of Intravitreal Aflibercept and Ranibizumab for Treatment of Myopic Choroidal Neovascularization: One-Year Results—A Retrospective, Comparative Study
Purpose. To compare one-year treatment outcomes of intravitreal aflibercept (IVA) and intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) for treatment of myopic choroidal neovascularization (mCNV). Methods. The medical records of a total of 30 eyes diagnosed with mCNV and underwent IVA or IVR treatment for a minimum one-year follow-up were studied retrospectively. All the subjects had an axial length >26 mm and received a 1 + PRN (pro re nata) regimen IVA or IVR. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central macular...

Lever-Type Tuned Mass Damper for Alleviating Dynamic Responses
This study considers the structural vibration control by a lever-type tuned mass damper (LTMD). The LTMD has a constraint condition to restrict the motion at both ends of the lever. The LTMD controls the dynamic responses at two locations combining the tuned mass damper (TMD) and the constraint condition. The parameters of the LTMD are firstly estimated from the TMD parameters and should be modified by them to obtain from numerical results. The effectiveness of the LTMD is illustrated in two numerical...

Method Improvements of Testing Modulus of Soil Based on Free-Vibration Column
It is difficult to directly measure the dynamic elastic modulus of soils when the strain is less than 10−4, though the dynamic shear modulus can be easily obtained by the free-vibration testing method. Some improvements were adapted to the traditional free-vibration column for measuring dynamic elastic modulus of soil precisely with lateral vibration in small strain (10−4∼10−6). Differing from the traditional lateral vibration theory, a new dynamic elastic modulus testing method based on bending...
