#1
Yumei She, Cheng Li, Tian Lan, Xiaobin Peng, Qianwen Liu, Shangchun Fan
We demonstrated a multilayer molybdenum disulfide (MoS₂) nanomechanical resonator by using optical Fabry-Perot (F-P) interferometric excitation and detection. The thin circular MoS₂ nanomembrane with an approximate 8-nm thickness was transferred onto the endface of a ferrule with an inner diameter of 125 μm, which created a low finesse F-P interferometer with a cavity length of 39.92 μm. The effects of temperature and viscous air damping on resonance behavior of the resonator were investigated in the range of -10-80 °C...

K Emmerich, M Fabri
Dermatologically relevant nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) include Mycobacterium marinum and Mycobacterium ulcerans and different rapidly growing mycobacteria (RGM). RGM are widely present in the environment and are facultative pathogenic. Diagnostic detection of nontuberculous mycobacteria is frequently challenging. Immune-competent individuals mostly develop localized infections. Immune-suppressed patients may present with severe and disseminated disease. In these cases, rapid initiation of medical treatment is important...

The progressive cardiomyopathy in patients with Fabry disease is often accompanied by angina pectoris and elevated levels of high-sensitive troponin T (hs-TnT), potentially mimicking acute coronary syndrome. Here, we present to representative cases with focus on clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic settings. An overview on the cardiomyopathy associated with Fabry disease and its role as differential diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome is provided. Fabry cardiomyopathy might exhibit similar clinical and biochemical constellations as seen in acute coronary syndrome...

Fabry disease (FD) is a pan-ethnic, X-linked, progressive lysosomal storage disorder caused by pathogenic mutations in the GLA gene. Published case reports and abstracts suggest that decreased reproductive fitness may occur in males with FD. In order to understand the impact of FD on reproductive fitness and increase the accuracy of reproductive genetic counseling, this study examines a large, multi-centered population of individuals with FD to determine if males have reduced reproductive fitness. Study data were collected on 376 patients through two, gender-specific surveys distributed across the United States and Canada...

Given the current rapid expansion of biological knowledge and the challenges of translating that knowledge into clinical practice, finding effective methods of teaching graduate students clinical medicine concepts has become even more critical. The utility of autopsy in medical student and resident education has been well-established. Multiple studies have reported it to be a helpful means of teaching anatomy, pathophysiology, clinical problem-solving skills, and medical diagnostic techniques. While various models of training Ph...

OBJECTIVES: Mild traumatic brain injury (or concussion) is a prevalent yet understudied health concern in children and youth. This injury can cause dysfunction in both motor and cognitive domains; however, most literature focuses on single-task neuropsychological tests which only assess cognition. Although dual-task research on concussed children and youth is needed as many daily activities require both motor and cognitive domains, we must first investigate whether performing simultaneous motor and cognitive tasks of varied complexity impact these domains in healthy children and youth...

OBJECTIVES: The level of 8-hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosise (8-OHdG) is a marker of oxidative stress. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) on the level of 8-OHdG in patients with Fabry cardiomyopathy and the clinical evolution of Fabry cardiomyopathy. METHODS: We measured the serum levels of 8-OHdG in 20 healthy control and 22 patients with Fabry cardiomyopathy before and after ERT. RESULTS: The mean lysoGb3 and 8-OHdG levels was significantly increased in patients with Fabry cardiomyopathy compared with that of control subjects (lysoGb3, 3...

Fabry's disease (FD) is a lysosomal storage disorder associated with an alpha-galactosidase A deficiency. The prevalence of FD among juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) patients with established diagnosis is unknown, but as musculoskeletal pain may be an important complaint at presentation, misdiagnosed cases are anticipated. With this study, we aim to calculate the frequency of FD-associated mutations in a cohort of JIA patients. Children with JIA from a national cohort were selected. Clinical and laboratorial information was recorded in the Portuguese rheumatic diseases register (http://Reuma...

BACKGROUND: Anderson-Fabry disease (AFD) is an X-linked recessive inborn error of glycosphingolipid metabolism caused by a deficiency of alpha-galactosidase A. Renal failure, heart and cerebrovascular involvement reduce survival. A Cochrane review provided little evidence on the use of enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). We now complement this review through a linear regression and a pooled analysis of proportions from cohort studies. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of ERT for AFD...

The gate-tunable wide-band absorption of graphene makes it suitable for light modulation from terahertz to visible light. The realization of graphene-based modulators, however, faces challenges connected with graphene's low absorption and the high electric fields necessary to change graphene's optical conductivity. Here, a solid-state supercapacitor effect with the high-k dielectric hafnium oxide is demonstrated that allows modulation from the near-infrared to shorter wavelengths close to the visible spectrum with remarkably low voltages (≈3 V)...

OBJECTIVES: Most acquired neuropathies are treatable, whereas genetic neuropathies respond to treatment in Fabry's disease (FD), transthyretin-related familial amyloidosis (TTR-FA), and Pompe's disease (PD). This review summarizes and discusses recent findings and future perspectives concerning etiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, treatment, and outcome of neuropathy in FD, TTR-FA, and PD. METHODS: Literature review. RESULTS: Neuropathy in FD concerns particularly small, unmyelinated, or myelinated sensory fibers (small fiber neuropathy [SFN]) and autonomic fibers, manifesting as acroparesthesias, Fabry's crises, or autonomous disturbances...

A simple and seamless broadband optical frequency comb (OFC) generator is proposed and experimentally demonstrated using a Fabry-Perot quantum dot mode-locked laser combined with a dual-driven LiNbO<sub>3</sub> Mach-Zehnder modulator driven by a low-power radio frequency (RF) signal. It is experimentally demonstrated that the 10-dB seamless bandwidth of the OFC is 8.2 nm (1.02 THz), which has 62 and 40 comb lines for frequency intervals of 16.56 GHz and 24.84 GHz, respectively. The single-sideband phase noise is as low as -112 and -108  dBc/Hz at an offset of 10 kHz, respectively, for the photodetector-converted 16...

We demonstrate here an extremely simple, compact, and robust refractive index (RI) probe sensor based on a femtosecond-laser induced refractive index-modified dot (RIMD) fabricated near the end face of a single-mode fiber. The RIMD and the fiber end face form a Fabry-Perot interferometer, which is highly sensitive to surrounding RI. The fabrication process of the RIMD involves only one step and takes ∼0.1  s, which is extremely short, compared with other techniques. The proposed sensor exhibits an ultra-high sensitivity of ∼2523...

A novel beam-supported membrane (BSM) structure for the fiber optic extrinsic Fabry-Perot interferometer (EFPI) sensors showing an enhanced performance and an improved resistance to the temperature change was proposed for detecting partial discharges (PDs). The fundamental frequency, sensitivity, linear range, and flatness of the BSM structure were investigated by employing the finite element simulations. Compared with the intact membrane (IM) structure commonly used by EFPI sensors, BSM structure provides extra geometrical parameters to define the fundamental frequency when the diameter of the whole membrane and its thickness is determined, resulting in an enhanced design flexibility of the sensor structure...
