Youngmin Yoon, Anthony Shoji Hall, Yogesh Surendranath
An electrode's performance for catalytic CO2 conversion to fuels is a complex convolution of surface structure and transport effects. Using well-defined mesostructured silver inverse opal (Ag-IO) electrodes, it is demonstrated that mesostructure-induced transport limitations alone serve to increase the turnover frequency for CO2 activation per unit area, while simultaneously improving reaction selectivity. The specific activity for catalyzed CO evolution systematically rises by three-fold and the specific activity for catalyzed H2 evolution systematically declines by ten-fold with increasing mesostructural roughness of Ag-IOs...

REVIEW
Karoliny Dos Santos, Lílian L Fausto, Paulo A M Camargos, Maicon R Kviecinski, Jane da Silva
Diagnosis and management of asthma often relies mostly on symptoms because spirometry is not always reliable in some age groups, such as preschoolers. It is unclear whether impulse oscillometry (IOS) can supplement or replace spirometry. Available reports suggest that IOS has been applied with success in asthmatic children and adolescents to assess exacerbations, level of control, severity and response to treatment in the short and long term. Very few studies using adequate sample sizes and methods have been performed comparing the accuracy of IOS to spirometry for the diagnosis of asthma...

OBJECTIVE: In addition to lung volume restriction, persons with chronic tetraplegia demonstrate obstructive airway physiology evinced by pharmacologically-induced bronchodilation. We previously found independent evidence that anticholinergic agents (ipratropium bromide; IB) and beta-2 adrenergic agonists (albuterol sulfate; AS) were associated with significant bronchodilation in subjects with tetraplegia as determined via spirometry or body plethysmography. Direct comparison of these two classes of agents has received little attention...

Multiple functional MRI (fMRI)-based functional connectivity networks were obtained by Yeo et al. (2011), and the visualization of these complex networks is a difficult task. Also, the combination of functional connectivity networks determined by fMRI with electroencephalography (EEG) data could be a very useful tool. Mobile devices are becoming increasingly common among users, and for this reason, we describe here two applications for Android and iOS mobile devices: one that shows in an interactive way the seven Yeo functional connectivity networks, and another application that shows the relative position of 10-20 EEG electrodes with Yeo's seven functional connectivity networks...

BACKGROUND: Globally, mobile phones have achieved wide reach at an unprecedented rate, and mobile phone apps have become increasingly prevalent among users. The number of health-related apps that were published on the two leading platforms (iOS and Android) reached more than 100,000 in 2014. However, there is a lack of synthesized evidence regarding the effectiveness of mobile phone apps in changing people's health-related behaviors. OBJECTIVE: The aim was to examine the effectiveness of mobile phone apps in achieving health-related behavior change in a broader range of interventions and the quality of the reported studies...

Wilfrido D Mojica, Gregg W Mojica
Control tissues play a vital role in diagnostic immunohistochemistry. They serve to document that the appropriate antibody was used, on the correct control tissue, and run on optimized conditions. As part of the evolving process of standardization in diagnostic immunohistochemistry, specific tissues have been identified based on agreement by experts in this field capable of serving as the benchmark(s) for several antibodies. These tissues are recommended based on known and predictable levels of strong, weak, and no expression of the antigen being queried...

Chucri A Kardous, Peter B Shaw
This follow-up study examines the accuracy of selected smartphone sound measurement applications (apps) using external calibrated microphones. The initial study examined 192 apps on the iOS and Android platforms and found four iOS apps with mean differences of ±2 dB of a reference sound level measurement system. This study evaluated the same four apps using external microphones. The results showed measurements within ±1 dB of the reference. This study suggests that using external calibrated microphones greatly improves the overall accuracy and precision of smartphone sound measurements, and removes much of the variability and limitations associated with the built-in smartphone microphones...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate patients with fever of unknown origin or those with suspected bacteremia, the precision of blood culture tests is critical. An inappropriate step in the test process or error in a parameter could lead to a false-positive result, which could then affect the direction of treatment in critical conditions. Mobile health apps can be used to resolve problems with blood culture tests, and such apps can hence ensure that point-of-care guidelines are followed and processes are monitored for blood culture tests...

Yanlin Wu, Romain Prulho, Marcello Brigante, Wenbo Dong, Khalil Hanna, Gilles Mailhot
In this study, the activation of persulfate induced by Fe(III) species, including 5 kinds of iron oxhydroxides (IOs) and dissolved Fe(3+) under dark condition were investigated. Ferrihydrite (FH) and akaganeite (AK) showed the highest activity in 4-tert-butylphenol (4tBP) removal. The 4tBP degradation rate constant decreased as the solution pH increased from pH 3.2 to 7.8 in FH/S2O8(2-) system. However, the pH value had no significant effect on the 4tBP degradation in AK/S2O8(2-) system. The degradation of 4tBP in Fe(3+)/S2O8(2-) system was also performed to investigate the role of ferric species in persulfate activation...
