Controlling Resistive Switching by Using an Optimized MoS Interfacial Layer and the Role of Top Electrodes on Ascorbic Acid Sensing in TaO -Based RRAM.

Langmuir 2019 Mar 11;35(11):3897-3906. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology , Chang Gung Memorial Hospital (CGMH) , Linkou, Tao-Yuan 33302 , Taiwan.

Controlled resistive switching by using an optimized 2 nm thick MoS interfacial layer and the role of top electrodes (TEs) on ascorbic acid (AA) sensing in a TaO -based resistive random access memory (RRAM) platform have been investigated for the first time. Both the high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) image and depth profile from energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy confirm the presence of each layer in IrO /AlO/TaO /MoS/TiN structure. The pristine device including the IrO TE with the 2 nm thick interfacial layer shows the highest uniform rectifying direct current endurance >1000 cycles and a large rectifying ratio >3. Read More

Scurvy, an old story in a new time: The hematologist's experience.

Blood Cells Mol Dis 2019 May 24;76:40-44. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Division of Hematopathology and Transfusion Medicine, University of Ottawa, Canada.

Background: Scurvy is a rare entity in developed countries and the diagnosis may often be delayed resulting in unnecessary investigations and/or potentially severe complications. A recent increase in the number of patients diagnosed with scurvy in our hematology clinics indicated the need to review the literature on the diagnosis and optimal management of similar patients.

Methods: We conducted a retrospective chart review of patients referred to hematology at our tertiary care centre between 2010 and 2018, who were ultimately diagnosed with scurvy. Read More

Five centuries of medical contributions from the Royal Navy.

Clin Med (Lond) 2019 Jan;19(1):22-25

Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.

Royal Naval ships' companies, isolated by hundreds of miles of sea with contacts to the outside world tightly regulated, provided perfect environments to study the epidemiology of disease. In 1747, James Lind organised one of the earliest clinical trials, demonstrating that scurvy could be treated by lemon juice. A century later, Alexander Bryson proved the value of careful epidemiological data collection and observation of infectious diseases encountered on the West Africa station. Read More

Vitamin D: part II; cod liver oil, ultraviolet radiation, and eradication of rickets.

Int Orthop 2019 Mar 9;43(3):735-749. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Hôpital Henri Mondor, 94010, Creteil, France.

Purpose: After Glisson's description of rickets, it took two centuries to realize that rickets was due to the absence of antirachitic nutrients in the diet or lack exposure of the skin to ultraviolet rays. This bone disease caused by vitamin D deficiency was one of the most common diseases of children 100 years ago. This paper explores how the definition, diagnosis, and treatment of rickets shifted in the first decades of the twentieth century. Read More

Alcohol Withdrawal: Possible Risk of Latent Scurvy Appearing as Tiredness: A STROBE-Compliant Study.

J Clin Med Res 2019 Jan 3;11(1):26-34. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Nouvelle Clinique des Trois Frontieres, 8, rue Saint Damien 68300 Saint-Louis, France.

Background: Little is known about the prevalence of vitamin C deficiency in the population of individuals who are withdrawing from alcohol, and about possible consequences of latent scurvy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of vitamin C deficiency in patients who were withdrawing from alcohol, its correlation with latent scurvy (mainly tiredness and weakness) and the change in the latter symptoms at 3 months after oral vitamin C supplementation.

Methods: A total of 47 patients (33 males, 14 females) who volunteered to undertake alcohol detoxification were included prospectively between January 2014 and November 2016. Read More

Department of Earth Sciences, Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 5BD, UK; AOC Archaeology Group, Moor Mead Road, Twickenham, TW1 1JS, UK. Electronic address:

Growing evidence suggests that vitamin D supports immune responses to infections, autoimmune conditions and cancers, although evidence from large-scale studies is limited. There is scope to better understand how vitamin D deficiency interacted with other diseases to affect health in past groups. This study investigated paleopathological evidence and documentary records of individual cause of death to examine disease co-occurrence in a group of mid-19th century child burials from London, UK.

Macroscopic features of scurvy in human skeletal remains: A literature synthesis and diagnostic guide.

Am J Phys Anthropol 2018 Dec 9;167(4):876-895. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Department of Anatomy, University of Otago, Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand.

The past two decades have seen a proliferation in bioarchaeological literature on the identification of scurvy, a disease caused by chronic vitamin C deficiency, in ancient human remains. This condition is one of the few nutritional deficiencies that can result in diagnostic osseous lesions. Scurvy is associated with low dietary diversity and its identification in human skeletal remains can provide important contextual information on subsistence strategy, resource allocation, and human-environmental interactions in past populations.
