“The etiologic agents of tinea capitis have traditionally been very stable with respect to geographic boundaries, with different anthropophilic or zoophilic species serving as the primary agents in particular countries and even continents. With recent increases in immigration and international travel, these traditional patterns are being learn more challenged. We report a case of tinea capitis due to Trichophyton soudanense in a West-African-born boy living in Chicago, Illinois.”
“Familial lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase deficiency

is an uncommon autosomal recessive disorder from a heritable defect in esterification of plasma cholesterol. In 1968, the disease was described

by Gjone and Norum in Norway.\n\nOur case was a 38-year-old woman. Her disease was manifested by presence of lower extremities edema, proteinuria, corneal opacities, increased plasma cholesterol, and hemolytic anemia. Suspicion of the disease was based on renal biopsy, which revealed mesangial expansion and capillary wall widening with clusters of foamy cells in the mesangium. Lonafarnib research buy Immunofluorescence study was nonspecific, but specific findings of electron microscopy showed deposition of lipid in the glomerular basement membrane and mesangium. This is the first report of lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase deficiency in Iran.\n\nThe diagnosis was confirmed by a low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentration, decreased activity of lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase in plasma, and positive familial history of the disease.”
“It is an effective warning tool for using the sensors to monitor the geo-hazards such as landslide. All of the sensors pressure cells have been produced and installed successfully selleck compound for many years, but the accuracy of measured pressured is often inadequate, The pressure measurement with pressure cells can be affected by different factors such as temperature, surrounding

material, stiffness of pressure cells and size of pressure cells. In all the factors the one from the material aspect is mostly obvious. Measured pressure and arrangements of material, contact area, material properties are related. In our study, the coal samples and rock samples are used to as the filling material in order to research the impacts from arrangements of material, contact area, material properties. In addition, the paper focuses on how arrangements of material and contact area affect the response time which is one index that reflects the performance of a sensor. Some practical recommendations are presented to give the helps about the improvement of pressure cells.”
“In this paper, we present the first implementation of our 0-60-kV picosecond rise time 1-10-ns pulse generator. The pulse generator will be used in future work to generate a (sub-)nanosecond streamer plasma for air purification research.
