In several areas of optics and photonics the behavior of the electromagnetic waves has to be calculated with the scalar theory of diffraction by computational methods. Many of these high-speed diffraction algorithms based on a fast-Fourier-transformation are approximations of the Rayleigh-Sommerfeld-diffraction (RSD) theory. In this article a novel sampling condition for the well-sampling of the Riemann integral of the RSD is demonstrated, the fundamental restrictions due to this condition are discussed, it will be demonstrated that the restrictions are completely removed by a sampling below the Abbe resolution limit and a very general unified approach for applying the RSD outside its sampling domain is given...

Progressive kidney diseases are often associated with scarring of the kidney's filtration unit, a condition called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). This scarring is due to loss of podocytes, cells critical for glomerular filtration, and leads to proteinuria and kidney failure. Inherited forms of FSGS are caused by Rac1-activating mutations, and Rac1 induces TRPC5 ion channel activity and cytoskeletal remodeling in podocytes. Whether TRPC5 activity mediates FSGS onset and progression is unknown. We identified a small molecule, AC1903, that specifically blocks TRPC5 channel activity in glomeruli of proteinuric rats...

Lip cancer represents between 12-15% of all oral cavity cancers; 95% affect the lower lip. The main objectives in lip reconstruction after tumoral mass resection are functionality and esthetics. We present the case of an 81-year-old male with a past medical history of squamous cell carcinoma of the maxilla. The patient consults with the Maxillofacial Surgery Department due to a hypertrophic lesion in the left oral commissure. The defect is considered intermediate in size (between 50% and 2/3). For reconstruction of the lip, a classical rotation flap (Estlander flap) is used together with a myomucosal flap, which is both innervated and expandable...

Open rhinoplasty and Abbe flap techniques are traditionally useful tools for the reconstruction of secondary bilateral cleft lip nasal (BCLN) deformity. We aimed to investigate the long-term outcomes of simultaneous columella and philtrum reconstruction using prolabial flap combined with Abbe flap in secondary BCLN deformity. From January 2009 to July 2014, 26 patients (17 males and 9 females; mean age 21 years) with secondary BCLN deformity were recruited. All patients had severe short columella and philtrum deficiency...

Next-Generation Sequencing is providing insights into the critical role of the oral microbiome in dental diseases. Application of this method can require the collection of dental plaque from large cohorts in field-type conditions, which necessitates a transport medium to preserve the microbiome composition. We evaluated the use of two transport media, VMG II and RNAprotect® Bacteria Reagent (Qiagen), for room temperature storage of dental plaque. VMG II has not previously been assessed for suitability to store microbiome samples intended for deep sequencing...

Maize was introduced into opposite sides of Eurasia 500 years ago, in Western Europe and in Asia. This caused two host-shifts in the phytophagous genus Ostrinia; O. nubilalis (the European corn borer; ECB) and O. furnacalis (the Asian corn borer; ACB) are now major pests of maize worldwide. They originated independently from Dicot-feeding ancestors, similar to O. scapulalis (the Adzuki bean borer; ABB). Unlike other host-plants, maize is yearly harvested, and harvesting practices impose severe mortality on larvae found above the cut-off line...

The diffusion of e-cigarette (e-CIG) opens a great scientific and regulatory debate about its safety. The huge number of commercialized devices, e-liquids with almost infinite chemical formulations and the growing market demand for a rapid and efficient toxicity screen system that is able to test all of these references and related aerosols. A consensus on the best protocols for the e-CIG safety assessment is still far to be achieved, since the huge number of variables characterizing these products (e.g., flavoring type and concentration, nicotine concentration, type of the device, including the battery and the atomizer)...

Infants' experiences are defined by the presence of concurrent streams of perceptual information in social environments. Touch from caregivers is an especially pervasive feature of early development. Using three lab experiments and a corpus of naturalistic caregiver-infant interactions, we examined the relevance of touch in supporting infants' learning of structure in an altogether different modality: audition. In each experiment, infants listened to sequences of sine-wave tones following the same abstract pattern (e...

Novel dielectric insulation gases used as alternatives to sulfur hexafluoride in gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) include several mixtures containing fluorinated organic compounds. We developed a fiber-optic analyzer enabling concentration measurement of fluoroketones used in medium- and high-voltage switchgear applications by ABB, with concurrent compensation of disturbing effects caused by dust and dirt. The sensor enables measurements in GIS and even in operating high-voltage circuit breakers. The online availability of concentration readings of fluoroketones is important for development tests, but can also be applied for monitoring or diagnostics of field installations...
