Gastric signet ring cell carcinoma (SRCC) is a rare form of highly malignant adenocarcinoma. It is an epithelial malignancy characterized by the histologic appearance of more than 50% of cells as signet ring cells filled with mucin. The incidence of SRCC is rising,[1],[2] therefore, the diagnosis of these cancers in the early stage is important as it is the only stage that curative measures can be done. A 49-year-old female was hospitalized due to epigastric pain, postprandial bloating for 3 months. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with narrow band imaging (NBI) showed 1...

PURPOSE: We report a novel finding on spectral domain optical coherence tomography in patients with choroideremia, which we describe as scleral pits (SCPs). METHODS: Cross-sectional observational case series of 36 patients with choroideremia, who underwent ophthalmic examination and multimodal imaging, including optical coherence tomography of the macula. Optical coherence tomography images were reviewed for SCP, which were defined as discrete tracts of hyporeflectivity that traverse the sclera with or without the involvement of Bruch membrane, retinal pigment epithelium, and retina...

The present investigation adopted long-term in-situ electrochemical and spectroscopic approaches to study the combined active, self-healing and passive protective mechanisms of a new class of innovative anti-corrosive coatings based on epoxy doped with clay nanotubes impregnated with active species for the protection of carbon steel in 3.5% NaCl solution. The suitability of the as-received clay nanotubes to encapsulate the active agents was confirmed by different spectroscopic measurements. Tube end stopper with Ferric ion and polymer encapsulation with chitosan cross-linked with glutaraldehyde were adopted to tunnel the release of the active agents loaded into the nanotubes...

Near-infrared photoimmunotherapy (NIR-PIT) is a newly developed cancer treatment that induces highly selective immunogenic cell death. It is based on an antibody-photoabsorber conjugate (APC) that is activated by NIR light. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of NIR-PIT as measured by luciferase-luciferin photon-counting and fluorescence imaging. Six days after subcutaneous injection of A431-luc-GFP cells tumors formed in a xenograft mouse model. The EGFR-targeting antibody, panitumumab, was conjugated to the photoabsorber, IRDye-700DX (pan-IR700), and was intravenously administered to tumor-bearing mice...

We describe a case of a healthy lady with a known optic disc pit who developed serous maculopathy a few hours after childbirth. We believe this is the first published description of a trigger factor responsible for serous macular detachment in eyes known to have a disc pit. She was successfully treated by means of pars plana vitrectomy and gas injection, resulting in slight visual improvement.

The fabrication of zirconia dental restorations is a time-consuming process due to traditional slow sintering schemes; zirconia (Y-TZP) produced by these conventional routes are predominantly opaque. Novel speed sintering protocols have been developed to meet the demand for time and cost effective chairside CAD/CAM-produced restorations, as well as to control ceramic microstructures for better translucency. Although the speed sintering protocols have already been used to densify dental Y-TZP, the wear properties of these restorations remain elusive...

Despite their importance, chemical reactions confined in a low dimensional space are elusive and experimentally intractable. In this work, we report doubly anisotropic, in-plane and out-of-plane, oxidation reactions of two-dimensional crystals, by resolving interface-confined thermal oxidation of a single and multilayer MoS2 supported on silica substrates from their conventional surface reaction. Using optical second-harmonic generation spectroscopy of artificially stacked multilayers, we directly proved that crystallographically oriented triangular oxides (TOs) were formed in the bottommost layer while triangular etch pits (TEs) were generated in the topmost layer and that both structures were terminated with zigzag edges...

Novel hybrid metal-graphene metamaterials featuring dynamically controllable single, double and multiple plasmon induced transparency (PIT) windows are numerically explored in the terahertz (THz) regime. The designed plasmonic metamaterials composed of a strip and a ring with graphene integration generate a novel PIT window. Once the ring is divided into pairs of asymmetrical arcs, double PIT windows both with the spectral contrast ratio 100% are obtained, where one originates from the destructive interference between bright-dark modes, and the other is based on the interaction of bright-bright modes...

INTRODUCTION: Linked-color imaging (LCI) is a recently developed system used in endoscopy. It creates clear and bright endoscopic images using short-wavelength, narrow-band laser light combined with white laser light. The illuminating light and signal processing emphasize slight color differences in abnormal regions that approximate the normal color of the mucosa. As a result, regions initially appearing red become a deeper shade of red, while regions originally appearing white become brighter, yet with natural tones...

Introduction Retinal development is a complex process that can continue into early childhood and beyond. Prematurity can affect the maturation of the central retina, characterised by a flatter foveal pit and overlying inner retinal layers (IRL), leading to a disturbed ratio of outer retinal layers to IRL ("macular developmental arrest": MDA) and functional impairment (Bowl et al. 2016 18). The purpose of this study was to correlate functional results by electrophysiology with the morphological appearance of the fovea in children with spontaneously regressed and without ROP and term-born age-matched controls...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Patients with longstanding ulcerative colitis (UC) are at increased risk of developing colorectal neoplasia. Chromoendoscopy (CE) increases detection of lesions, and Kudo pit pattern classification I and II have been suggested to be predictive of benign polyps in UC. Little is known on the use of this classification in nonmagnified high-definition (HD) (virtual) CE and narrow-band Imaging (NBI) or on the interobserver agreement. The aim of this pilot study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy and the interobserver agreement of the Kudo pit pattern classification in UC patients undergoing surveillance with methylene blue CE or NBI in a multicenter study...

A high-channel-count bandstop graphene plasmonic filter based on ultracompact plasmonic structure is proposed in this paper. It consists of graphene waveguide side-coupled with a series of graphene filtering units. The study shows that the waveguide-resonator system performs a multiple plasmon induced transparency (PIT) phenomenon. By carefully adjusting the Fermi level of the filtering units, any two adjacent transmitted dips which belong to different PIT units can produce coherent coupling superposition enhancement...

This case report describes a 19-year-old Caucasian man presented with decreased visual acuity in the right eye for 3 months. Dilated funds exam revealed optic disk pit associated with serous macular detachment. Optical coherence tomography identified communication between the optic disk pit and the macular serous detachment, and optical coherence tomography angiography displayed a subfoveal area suggestive of subfoveal choroidal neovascularization. However, there was no evidence of leakage in the fluorescein angiogram and no evidence of choroidal neovascularization in optical coherence tomography in the area corresponding to the suspicious subfoveal choroidal neovascularization...
