Yongle Wu, Yuqing Chen, Lidan Yao, Weimin Wang, Yuanan Liu
In this paper, a novel perturbation approach for implementing the independently reconfigurable dual-mode dual-band substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) filter is proposed. Dual-frequency manipulation is achieved by adding perturbation via-holes (the first variable) and changing the lengths of the interference slot (the second variable) in each cavity. The independent control of the upper passband only depends on the second variable while the lower passband is independently tuned by combining the two variables...

Two filtering-response power dividers embedded substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) filter are presented in this paper. By employing different SIW resonators, single- and dual-band filtering response are achieved, respectively. The even- and odd-mode method and the coupled resonator theory are applied to analyze the presented power dividers. In addition, a novel isolation technique using multiple isolation resistors is proposed to improve the output isolation performance of the filtering-response power divider with multiple resonators...

Pilot-scale Bacillus thuringiensis based biopesticide production (2000 L bioreactor) was conducted using starch industry wastewater (SIW) as a raw material using optimized operational parameters obtained in 15 L and 150 L fermenters. In pilot scale fermentation process the oxygen transfer rate is a major limiting factor for high product yield. Thus, the volumetric mass transfer coefficient (KLa) remains a tool to determine the oxygen transfer capacity [oxygen utilization rate (OUR) and oxygen transfer rate (OTR)] to obtain better bacterial growth rate and entomotoxicity in new bioreactor process optimization and scale-up...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: to identify and describe the experience of healthcare encounters among women with endometriosis. BACKGROUND: Endometriosis is a "hidden" chronic gynecological disease appearing in every 10(th) woman of fertile age. Different manifestations of pain are the main symptoms, often leading to impaired physical and mental health, and lower quality of life. Previous research on healthcare experiences among women with endometriosis has focused on diagnostic delay and experiences of encountering general practitioners...

Tuberculosis (TB) is a poverty related infectious disease that is rapidly giving rise to public health concerns. Lengthy drug administration and frequent adverse side-effects associated with TB treatment make anti-tubercular drugs (ATDs) good candidates for drug delivery studies. This work aimed to formulate and prepare liposomes as a cost-effective option for ATD delivery. Liposomes were prepared by film hydration using crude soybean lecithin (CL) and not pure phospholipids as in the normal practice. Cholesterol was also used (up to 25% mass ratio), and isoniazid (INH) was encapsulated as model drug using a freeze-thaw loading technique...

Plastic pollution is a major anthropogenic contaminant effecting the marine environment and is often associated with high human population densities and industrial activities. The microplastic (63 to 5000μm) burden of beach sediment and surf-zone water was investigated at selected sites along the entire length of the South African coastline. It was predicted that samples collected in areas of high population density, would contain a higher microplastic burden than those along coasts that demonstrate very low population densities...

Histiocytosis X is an idiopathic disease, characterized by a disorder of the reticulo-endothelial system in the human body. Histopathological studies carried out right from the 1800s have seen a significant similarity in the pathologic process of different stages in particular clinical syndromes showing proliferation of mature histiocytes. It was then modified by Lichenstein in 1953 as "Histiocytosis X". The exact aetiology is unknown; hence, the name "Histiocytosis X". The disease classically presents with three syndromes namely Eosinophilic granuloma, Letterer-Siwe disease and Hand-Schuller-Christian disease...

BACKGROUND: Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have a key role in improving health in low- and middle-income countries. Their work needs to be synergistic, complementary to public services, and rooted in community mobilization and collective action. The study explores how an NGO and its health services are perceived by the population that it serves, and how it can contribute to reducing barriers to care. DESIGN: A qualitative exploratory study was conducted in remote Ecuador, characterized by its widespread poverty and lack of official governance...

Muhammad Usman Memon, Sungjoon Lim
This research proposes a substrate-integrated waveguide (SIW) cavity sensor to detect several chemicals using the millimeter-wave frequency range. The frequency response of the presented SIW sensor is switched by filling a very small quantity of chemical inside of the fluidic channel, which also causes a difference in the effective permittivity. The fluidic channel on this structure is either empty or filled with a chemical; when it is empty the structure resonates at 17.08 GHz. There is always a different resonant frequency when any chemical is injected into the fluidic channel...

Yongle Wu, Yuqing Chen, Lingxiao Jiao, Yuanan Liu, Zabih Ghassemlooy
A novel perturbation approach using additional metalized via-holes for implementation of the dual-band or wide-band dual-mode substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) filters is proposed in this paper. The independent perturbation on the first resonant mode TE101 can be constructed by applying the proposed perturbation approach, whereas the second resonant mode TE102 is not affected. Thus, new kinds of dual-band or wide-band dual-mode SIW filters with a fixed or an independently reconfigurable low-frequency band have been directly achieved...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The approval of sofosbuvir offers new therapeutic options for patients suffering from chronic hepatitis C. In phase III trials, it has demonstrated significantly greater efficacy and safety in comparison with the old standard of care. In addition, it provides the first interferon-free regimen allowing treatment of patients without previous therapeutic options. A current debate regarding pricing and affordability can be attributed to high treatment costs. The objective of this review was to compare health economic evaluations of sofosbuvir for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C in terms of models, patient populations, interventions and results...

Langerhans cell histiocytosis syndromes have been described as encompassing a range of disorders, such as eosinophilic granuloma, Letterer-Siwe syndrome and Hand-Schüller-Christian disease. These disorders have been mainly diagnosed at early ages of life and are relatively rare entities in adult age groups. In this study, we aimed to retrospectively evaluate the patients with Langerhans cell histiocytosis followed-up in our hospital. Seven patients were treated between 1995 and 2005. Median age of patients was 27...

The aim of the present study was to explore occupational differences in the experience of engagement both with regard to differences in the level of work engagement as well as in the predicting value of different antecedent variables. Multigroup latent mean analysis was performed on eight different occupational groups in Norway (lawyers, physicians, nurses, teachers, church ministers, bus drivers, and people working in advertising and information technology; N = 3,475). Tests for factorial invariance supported the use of the Oldenburg Burnout Inventory scale across occupational groups and that the latent means were comparable across the groups...

Renita Sörensdotter, Karin Siwe
Gynaecologists are in a position to challenge norms about gender and sexuality in relation to female genitals. Through their work they have the opportunity to educate patients, which is why teaching medical students to perform examinations in a gender sensitive way is significant. Medical students performing their first pelvic examination often experience the examination as uncomfortable because it is a body part that is connected to sex and to something private. This paper uses medical students' interpretations of performing their first pelvic examination as a means to discuss how cultural norms for gender, sexuality and female genitals affect these examinations...
