We report a one-step interface engineering methodology, which can be used on both polymer electrodes and gate dielectric for all-inkjet-printed, flexible, transparent organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) and inverters. Dimethylchlorosilane-terminated polystyrene (PS) was introduced as a surface modifier to cured poly(4-vinyl phenol) dielectric and poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):polystyrene sulfonate (PEDOT:PSS) electrodes without any pretreatment. On the untreated and PS interlayer-treated dielectric/electrode surfaces, 6,13-bis(triisopropylsilylethynyl)pentacene was printed to fabricate OTFTs and inverters...

Fresh hams display significant lean color variation that persists through further processing and contributes to a less desirable cured product. In an attempt to understand the underlying cause of this color disparity, we evaluated the differences in muscle characteristics and energy metabolites across semimembranosus (SM) muscles differing in color variation. The L* (lightness) and a* (redness) values were highest and lowest (P<0.001), respectfully in the most caudal aspects of the muscle while the ultimate pH was the lowest (P<0...

REVIEW
Boni E Elewski, Tracey C Vlahovic, Andrew Korotzer
Background: The current definition of complete cure is considered too stringent to reflect the true benefit of onychomycosis treatment seen in general practice and may limit the use of newer topical agents in mild-to-moderate disease. In addition, outcomes reported in clinical trials do not consistently report secondary endpoints, making data comparison difficult. Methods: The authors review the clinical data reported on two new topical antifungals, efinaconazole and tavaborole, in light of the latest thinking of more practical approaches to assess improvement and treatment success...

Extensive research is ongoing that concentrates on finding therapies to enhance CNS regeneration after spinal cord injury (SCI) and to cure paralysis. This review sheds light on the role of the FGFR pathway in the injured spinal cord and discusses various therapies that use FGFR activating ligands to promote regeneration after SCI. We discuss studies that use peripheral nerve grafts or Schwann cell grafts in combination with FGF1 or FGF2 supplementation. Most of these studies show evidence that these therapies successfully enhance axon regeneration into the graft...

Surface pattern on the nano- and microscale is of great interest due to its special optical effect, which might find potential application in optical devices such as LCD display, packaging of LED chip, and thin-film solar cell. We here developed a facile bottom-up approach to fabricate microprotuberance (MP) on surface by using curable resin via sequential photocuring at room temperature and thermal polymerization at high temperature. The curable resin is composed of random fluorinated polystyrene (PSF) as blinder and trimethylolpropane trimethacrylate (TMPTA) as cross-linker...

Despite continuous research and availability of 25 different active compounds for treating chronic HIV-1 infection, there is no absolute cure for this deadly disease. Primarily, the residual viremia remains hidden in latently infected reservoir sites and persistently release the viral RNA into the blood stream. The study proposes the dual utilization of the prepared stavudine-containing nanoformulations to control the residual viremia as well as target the reservoir sites. Gelatin nanoformulations containing very low dosage of stavudine were prepared through classical desolvation process and were later loaded in soya lecithin-liposomes...

A major barrier to an Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV) infection cure is the establishment of a viral reservoir despite cART. It is unclear how HIV-specific CTLs influence the size of the reservoir in early HIV infection. 28 subjects with early HIV infection were recruited to receive cART and followed for 48 weeks. HIV reservoirs in peripheral CD4+ T cells measured by cell associated proviral DNA and viral outgrowth cultures were determined at baseline and 48 weeks of cART. At baseline, Granzyme B and IFN-γ ELISpot assays were performed with peptides spanning the HIV proteome...

Long-standing diabetes leads to structural and functional alterations in both the micro- and the macrovasculature. Designing therapies to repair these abnormalities present unique and sophisticated challenges. Vascular endothelial cells are the primary cells damaged by hyperglycemia-induced adverse effects. Vascular stem cells that give rise to endothelial progenitor cells and mesenchymal progenitor cells represent an attractive target for cell therapy for diabetic patients. In this review, we shed light on challenges and recent advances surrounding stem cell therapies for diabetes vascular complications and discuss limitations for their clinical adoption...

To tackle a large midline diastema and generalized spacing existing before extraction often poses a challenge to the treating prosthodontist. The situation becomes even more complicated if the patient is a teenager, with multiple missing teeth, associated deep bite and where the jaw bone growth has not yet been completed. Possible treatment options would include a removable prosthesis, a fixed partial denture or an implant supported prosthesis. Treating such cases with a simple removable prosthesis cannot be justified if a deep bite existed which would result in posterior disocclusion...
