Experimental study on wheel-spoke crossed cable structures

Zongyu Hu, Jun Wang, Jida Zhao & Yiyi Chen
Wheel-spoke crossed cable structure is a new type of cable-strut structure. In this article, the tension forming and static performance of wheel-spoke crossed cable structure are experimentally investigated by testing four scale models under full-span and half-span downward uniform load, and the effect of structural parameters including variable prestress level, height difference between inner ring and outer ring, and layer height of inner ring is studied by finite element method as well. The test results...

Group Medical Visits as Participatory Care in Community Health Centers

Ariana Thompson-Lastad
In this article, I examine group medical visits, a clinic-based intervention that aims to improve patient health by combining clinical care, health education and peer support. Research shows that health care inequalities are reproduced through the interplay of interpersonal, institutional, and structural factors. I examine changing social relations made possible by group visits, including peer support and an expanded role for patient knowledge. The qualitative data presented here are part of a mixed-methods study of...

PPARD rs7770619 polymorphism in a Korean population: Association with plasma malondialdehyde and impaired fasting glucose or newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes

Minjoo Kim, Minkyung Kim, Hye Jin Yoo, Yao Sun, Sang-Hyun Lee & Jong Ho Lee
Both the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta gene (PPARD) and malondialdehyde plasma concentrations may play a role in impaired glucose metabolism. The aim of this work was to determine whether PPARD is a candidate gene for impaired fasting glucose or type 2 diabetes and whether a particular genetic variant shows association with plasma malondialdehyde levels. Among the 10 single-nucleotide polymorphisms that were most strongly associated with malondialdehyde, the rs7770619 polymorphism in PPARD was analysed in 1798...

Social and biological intergroup hierarchy beliefs: A cross-cultural comparison between the US and South Korea

Hyeyoung Shin, John F. Dovidio, Jaime L Napier, Charles G. Stangor & James S. Uleman
The present research investigated social and biological intergroup hierarchy beliefs in the US and South Korea, representative Northern European-heritage and East Asian cultures, respectively. We hypothesized that individual-orientation (the emphasis on individuals and individual achievements) and group-orientation (the emphasis on groups and efficient functioning of groups) would predict social and biological hierarchy beliefs differently within and between these cultures. As expected, intergroup hierarchy beliefs were stronger in South Korea than in the US, particularly for...

Hyperprolactinemia-inducing antipsychotics increase breast cancer risk by activating JAK-STAT5 in precancerous lesions

A. Johnston, W. Bu, S. Hein, S. Garcia, L. Camacho, L. Xue, L. Qin, C. Nagi, S. Hilsenbeck, J. Kapali, K. Podsypanina, J. Nangia & Y. Li
Abstract Background Psychiatric medications are widely prescribed in the USA. Many antipsychotics cause serum hyperprolactinemia as an adverse side effect; prolactin-Janus kinase 2 (JAK2)-signal transducer and activator of transcription 5 (STAT5) signaling both induces cell differentiation and suppresses apoptosis. It is controversial whether these antipsychotics increase breast cancer risk. Methods We investigated the impact of several antipsychotics on mammary tumorigenesis initiated by retrovirus-mediated delivery of either ErbB2 or HRas or by transgenic expression of Wnt-1....

Magnetic resonance imaging for detecting root avulsions in traumatic adult brachial plexus injuries: protocol for a systematic review of diagnostic accuracy

Ryckie Wade, Yemisi Takwoingi, Justin Wormald, John Ridgway, Steven Tanner, James Rankine & Grainne Bourke
Abstract Background Adult brachial plexus injuries (BPI) are becoming more common. The reconstruction and prognosis of pre-ganglionic injuries (root avulsions) are different to other types of BPI injury. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is being used to identify root avulsions, but the evidence from studies of its diagnostic accuracy are conflicting. Therefore, a systematic review is needed to address uncertainty about the accuracy of MRI and to guide future research. Methods We will conduct a...

Relevance of the Mann Whitney Wilcoxon test in the survival analysis of newly established companies in Tunisia (Case of the sfax region)

Sahar Ayadi & Sonia Ghorbel
Abstract This research focuses on the factors of survival and growth of new enterprises in Tunisia. Based on previous research, we hypothesize that three factors influence the survival and growth of these firms: factors related to the entrepreneur, factors related to organizational characteristics and characteristics of the environment from start-up. We test these assumptions on a sample of 60 companies. The results show that human capital and the experience of the entrepreneur have a relatively...

Establishing an innovative carbohydrate metabolic pathway for efficient production of 2-keto-l-gulonic acid in Ketogulonicigenium robustum initiated by intronic promoters

Cai-Yun Wang, Ye Li, Zi-Wei Gao, Li-Cheng Liu, Meng-Yue Zhang, Tian-Yuan Zhang, Chun-Fu Wu & Yi-Xuan Zhang
Abstract Background 2-Keto-l-gulonic acid (2-KGA), the precursor of vitamin C, is currently produced by two-step fermentation. In the second step, l-sorbose is transformed into 2-KGA by the symbiosis system composed of Ketogulonicigenium vulgare and Bacillus megaterium. Due to the different nutrient requirements and the uncertain ratio of the two strains, the symbiosis system significantly limits strain improvement and fermentation optimization. Results In this study, Ketogulonicigenium robustum SPU_B003 was reported for its capability to grow well...

General practitioners can increase participation in cervical cancer screening – a model program in Hungary

Anikó Gyulai, Attila Nagy, Vera Pataki, Dóra Tonté, Róza Ádány & Zoltán Vokó
Abstract Background Cervical cancer is a preventable disease. Unfortunately, its mortality is high in Hungary: 9.2 deaths /100000 women/year in 2015. The Hungarian organized, nationwide cervical screening program was launched in 2003, but it could improve the coverage rate of cervical cancer screening only by a few percentage points. The vast majority of women still uses opportunistic screening and the organized screening program had little impact on participation by women who never or rarely consult...
