The microstructure dependent electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding properties of nano-layered Ti3 AlC2 ceramics were presented in this study by comparing the shielding properties of various Ti3 AlC2 ceramics with distinct microstructures. Results indicate that Ti3 AlC2 ceramics with dense microstructure and coarse grains are more favourable for superior EMI shielding efficiency. High EMI shielding effectiveness over 40 dB at the whole Ku-band frequency range was achieved in Ti3 AlC2 ceramics by microstructure optimization, and the high shielding effectiveness were well maintained up to 600 °C...

Gilles de la Tourette syndrome is a chronic and complex tic disorder accompanied by specific behavioral problems in the majority of patients. With its multifaceted interplay between motion and emotion, this condition is a paradigmatic example of the science and art of clinical neuropsychiatry. This review article encompasses the clinical phenomenology of motor and vocal tics and associated sensory experiences (premonitory urges), as well as the behavioral spectrum of the most common comorbidities, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorder, affective symptoms, and impulsivity...

BACKGROUND: Impaired inhibitory control is thought to be a core deficit in psychiatric disorders where patients exhibit problems with controlling urges. These problems include the urge to perform movements typical of Tourette syndrome and the urge to execute compulsive actions typical of obsessive-compulsive disorder. However, the picture emerging from studies that address this issue is controversial. Furthermore, most studies have only focused on reactive control (the ability of subjects to react to a stop signal), but not on proactive control (the ability of patients to shape their response strategies in anticipation of known task demands)...

Liver tumor-initiating cells (TICs) are drivers of liver tumorigenesis, and Wnt/β-catenin activation plays a principal role in the self-renewal of liver TICs. Despite a deep understanding of Wnt/β-catenin regulation, the roles of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in Wnt/β-catenin activation and liver TIC self-renewal are largely unknown. Here, we performed unbiased screening of lncRNAs in liver tumorigenesis and found lncTIC1 was highly expressed with liver tumorigenesis. LncTIC1 was also highly expressed in liver TICs and required for the self-renewal of liver TICs...

Aberrant interoceptive accuracy could contribute to the co-occurrence of anxiety and premonitory urge in chronic tic disorders (CTD). If it can be manipulated through intervention, it would offer a transdiagnostic treatment target for tics and anxiety. Interoceptive accuracy was first assessed consistent with previous protocols and then re-assessed following an instruction attempting to experimentally enhance awareness. The CTD group demonstrated lower interoceptive accuracy than controls but, importantly, this group difference was no longer significant following instruction...

We present a simple and universal approach to calculate the total ionization cross section (TICS) for electron impact ionization in DNA bases and other biomaterials in the condensed phase. Evaluating the electron impact TICS plays a vital role in ion-beam radiobiology simulation at the cellular level, as secondary electrons are the main cause of DNA damage in particle cancer therapy. Our method is based on extending the dielectric formalism. The calculated results agree well with experimental data and show a good comparison with other theoretical calculations...

Recent advances allowed culturing and examination of patient-derived colorectal cancer (PD-CRC) cells as organoids or spheroids. To be applied to practical personalized medicine, however, current methods still need to be strengthened for higher efficiency. Here we report an improved method to propagate PD-CRC tumor initiating cells (TICs) in spheroid culture. We established > 100 cancer spheroid lines derived from independent colorectal cancer patients employing a serum-containing medium with additional inhibitors, Y27632 and SB431542...

Supported metallic palladium (Pd) acts as a real catalyst for peroxymonosulfate (PMS) activation to produce highly oxidizing species. However, the species produced are surface-bound in nature, and their use for pollutant degradation requires an inert supporting material to minimize the surface scavenging effect. In this study, we synthesized Pd nanoparticles (NPs) on different supporting materials (Al2 O3 , TiO2 , SiO2 , g-C3 N4 , C, and TiC), and compared their reactivity toward PMS activation for the first time...

Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are renewable and clean energy conversion device, of which the metallic bipolar plates are one of the key components. However, high interfacial contact resistance and poor corrosion resistance are still great challenges for the commercialization of metallic bipolar plates. In this study, we demonstrated a novel strategy for depositing TiCx /a-C nanolayered coatings by synergy of 60 V and 300 V bias voltage to enhance corrosion resistance and interfacial conductivity...

Expectations shape human behavior. Initial drug use might be associated with information-based expectations. In this study, we presumed that changes in affect and perceived physical wellbeing will be stronger after receiving an active placebo (Tic Tac mint; n = 40), than a pure placebo (inert pill; n = 40) given as a mood-enhancing "super pill." After baseline measures, participants completed a treatment-expectancy scale, ingested the mint/super pill, and attended to the effects over 3-minutes. Subsequently, they completed again the psychological tests...

OBJECTIVE: Children and adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) frequently have comorbidities that are potential indications for antipsychotics (APs). Some studies have suggested that the combined use of methylphenidate (MPH) and APs is increasing in this population group. Longitudinal analyses and in-depth investigations on the substance level are lacking. This study aimed to estimate the cumulative proportion of concomitant AP/MPH use in children and adolescents with ADHD over a follow-up of up to 9 years and to describe patient characteristics stratified by specific AP drug...

BACKGROUND: Liver tumor initiating cells (TICs) have self-renewal and differentiate capacities, and largely contribute to tumor initiation, metastasis and drug resistance. MAPK signaling is a critical pathway in many biological processes, while its role in liver TICs hasn't been explored. METHODS: Online-available dataset was used for unbiased screening. Liver TICs were examined CD133 FACS or oncosphere formation. TIC self-renewal was detected by oncosphere formation and tumor initiation assay...

Tourette syndrome (TS) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterised by repetitive and intermittent motor and vocal tics. TS is thought to reflect fronto-striatal dysfunction and the aetiology of the disorder has been linked to widespread alterations in the functional and structural integrity of the brain. The aim of this study was to assess white matter (WM) abnormalities in a large sample of young patients with TS in comparison to a sample of matched typically developing control individuals (CS) using diffusion MRI...

While in vivo studies clearly demonstrate that supra-annular Valve-in-Valve (ViV) implantation provides the highest probability for optimal post-ViV pressure gradients (PG), there is still no physical insight into explaining anomalies where some supra-annular ViV implantations yield high pressure gradients while some sub-annular implantations yield low pressure gradients. The aim of this study is to explain how severe tissue ingrowth and calcification (TIC) in a surgical aortic valve (SAV) can be one physical mechanism leading to anomalous ViV performance characteristic...

BACKGROUND: Continued care in patients with encephalitis and prolonged status epilepticus (SE) is controversial. Limited data is available on the functional and cognitive outcomes. METHODS: In a prospective cohort study from 2007 to 2016, patients with acute encephalitis and SE were reviewed. Long-term outcomes including motor disability (modified Rankin Scale, mRS), daily living skills (activities of daily living, ADL), cognitive ability (modified Telephone Interview for Cognitive Status, TICS-M) and epilepsy sequelae, were evaluated in those survivors at 12-month follow-up...

The vast majority of colorectal cancer (CRC)-related deaths can be attributed to metastatic spreading of the disease. Therefore, deciphering molecular mechanisms of metastatic dissemination is a key prerequisite to improve future treatment options. With this aim, we took advantage of different CRC cell lines and recently established primary cultures enriched in colon cancer stem cells (CSCs) - also known as tumor-initiating cells (TICs) - to identify genes and microRNAs (miRNAs) with regulatory functions in CRC progression...
