Background: High cutoff hemofilters might support the restoration of immune homeostasis in systemic inflammation by depleting inflammatory mediators from the circulation.

Methods: Interleukin (IL)-6, IL-8, IL-10, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha depletion was assessed in 30 sepsis patients with acute renal failure using continuous veno-venous hemodialysis with high cutoff versus standard filters (CVVHD-HCO vs. CVVHD-STD) over 48 h.

Results: The transfer of IL-6 and IL-8 was significantly higher for CVVHD-HCO, as shown by increased IL-6 and IL-8 effluent concentrations. The mean plasma cytokine concentrations decreased over time for all cytokines without detectable differences for the treatment modalities. No transfer of albumin was observed for either of the filters. C-reactive protein remained stable over time and did not differ between CVVHD-HCO and CVVHD-STD, while procalcitonin decreased significantly over 48 h for both treatment modalities.

Conclusion: CVVHD-HCO achieved enhanced removal of IL-6 and IL-8 as compared to CVVHD-STD, without differentially reducing plasma cytokine levels.

Tomographic imaging of catalysts allows non-invasive investigation of structural features and chemical properties by combining large fields of view, high spatial resolution, and the ability to probe multiple length scales. Three complementary nanotomography techniques, (i) electron tomography, (ii) focused ion beam-scanning electron microscopy, and (iii) synchrotron ptychographic X-ray computed tomography, were applied to render the 3D structure of monolithic nanoporous gold doped with ceria, a catalytically active material with hierarchical porosity on the nm and μm scale. The resulting tomograms were used to directly measure volume fraction, surface area and pore size distribution, together with 3D pore network mapping. Read More

Effects of fractal roughness of membrane surfaces on interfacial interactions associated with membrane fouling in a membrane bioreactor.

Fractal roughness is one of the most important properties of a fractal surface. In this study, it was found that, randomly rough membrane surface was a fractal surface, which could be digitally modeled by a modified two-variable Weierstrass-Mandelbrot (WM) function. Fractal roughness of membrane surfaces has a typical power function relation with the statistical roughness of the modeled surface. Read More

In order to apply the molecular dynamics (MD) method to simulate modulated phases in organic materials, a compensating external pressure tensor is proposed to compensate for the deficiencies of the force field applied in the simulation. MD can well reproduce modulated phases that have been measured by diffraction. Mechanisms of incommensurate modulation are revealed from the simulations. Read More
