Emergency response to the explosive growth of health care wastes during COVID-19 pandemic in Wuhan, China.

Resour Conserv Recycl 2021 Jan 18;164:105074. Epub 2020 Aug 18.

Hubei Provincial Engineering Laboratory of Solid Waste Treatment, Disposal and Recycling, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, 430074, PR China.

During the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) as a worldwide pandemic, the security management of health care wastes (HCWs) has attracted increasing concern due to their high risk. In this paper, the integrated management of HCWs in Wuhan, the first COVID-19-outbreaking city with over ten millions of people completely locking down, was collected, investigated and analyzed. During the pandemic, municipal solid wastes (MSWs) from designated hospitals, Fangcang shelter hospitals, isolation locations and residential areas (e. Read More

Factors Influencing Young People's Intention toward Municipal Solid Waste Sorting.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2019 05 15;16(10). Epub 2019 May 15.

Humanities and Management School, Hebei Agriculture University, Cangzhou 061100, China.

With the rapid growth of urban economy and population in China, the output of municipal solid waste (MSW) has dramatically increased becoming a constant threat to residents' living environment and health. The classification intention of residents plays a pivotal role in solving the problem of MSW disposal. While numerous studies have examined the classification behavior of MSW from the perspective of ordinary residents and households, few studies have attempted to understand young people's sorting intention.

Naturally occurring change in Multiple Sclerosis Walking Scale-12 scores over time in multiple sclerosis.

Neurodegener Dis Manag 2018 10 18;8(5):315-322. Epub 2018 Sep 18.

Department of Kinesiology & Community Health, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL, USA 61801.

Aim: This study examined the trajectory and pattern of naturally occurring change in perceived walking impairment over a 30-month period in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS).

Patients & Methods: Two hundred and sixty-nine persons with RRMS completed the 12-item Multiple Sclerosis Walking Scale (MSWS-12) every 6 months over a 30-month period. Data were analyzed using latent growth curve modeling and latent class growth curve modeling. Read More

Synergistic combination of two antimicrobial agents closing each other's mutant selection windows to prevent antimicrobial resistance.

Sci Rep 2018 05 8;8(1):7237. Epub 2018 May 8.

College of Bioscience and Bioengineering, Jiangxi Agricultural University, Nanchang, 330045, China.

Antimicrobial resistance seriously threatened human health. Combination therapy is generally an effective strategy to fight resistance, while some data on its effects are conflicting. To explore the reasons, the fractional inhibitory concentration indexes (FICIs) of three designed combinations against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) were determined using checkerboard method, and their minimal concentrations inhibiting colony formation by 99% (MICs) and mutant prevention concentrations (MPCs) alone or in combinations including different proportions were first determined using agar plates.

The Role of Self-Esteem in Depression: A Longitudinal Study.

Behav Cogn Psychother 2019 Mar 25;47(2):244-250. Epub 2018 Apr 25.

Department of Psychological Methodology and Assessment,Ludwig-Maximilians-University,Munich,Germany.

Background: Based on the vulnerability model, several studies indicate that low self-esteem seems to contribute to depressive symptoms.

Aims: The aim of this study was to treat depressive symptoms in a cognitive behavioural group therapy, focusing on the enhancement of self-esteem, and to explore co-variation in depressive symptoms and the level of self-esteem.

Method: The Multidimensional Self-esteem Scale (MSWS) and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) were administered to 147 psychiatric in-patients with current depressive symptoms due to an affective disorder (major depression, bipolar I, dysthymia). Read More

Mono- and multilayers of molecular spoked carbazole wheels on graphite.

Beilstein J Org Chem 2014 27;10:2783-8. Epub 2014 Nov 27.

Kekulé-Institut für Organische Chemie und Biochemie, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn, Gerhard-Domagk-Str. 1, 53121 Bonn, Germany.

Self-assembled monolayers of a molecular spoked wheel (a shape-persistent macrocycle with an intraannular spoke/hub system) and its synthetic precursor are investigated by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) at the liquid/solid interface of 1-octanoic acid and highly oriented pyrolytic graphite. The submolecularly resolved STM images reveal that the molecules indeed behave as more or less rigid objects of certain sizes and shapes - depending on their chemical structures. In addition, the images provide insight into the multilayer growth of the molecular spoked wheels (MSWs), where the first adlayer acts as a template for the commensurate adsorption of molecules in the second layer.

Hospice for nursing home residents: does ownership type matter?

J Palliat Med 2013 Oct 30;16(10):1221-6. Epub 2013 Jul 30.

1 Yale School of Public Health, Yale University , New Haven, Connecticut.

Background: Currently, more than half of all nursing home residents use hospice at some point. Studies have shown benefits to hospice enrollment for patients; however, the literature on ownership differences in hospice care in general has indicated that for-profit hospices offer a narrower scope of services and employ fewer professional staff. Although nursing home staffing patterns have been shown to be essential to quality of care, the literature has not explored differences in number of patients per staff member for hospice care within nursing homes.

New pleasures and old dangers: reinventing male sex work.

J Sex Res 2013 ;50(3-4):263-75

Faculty of the Professions, University of New England.

Understandings of male sex workers (MSWs) shift with technological, conceptual, and social changes. Research has historically constructed MSWs as psychologically unstable, desperate, or destitute victims and their clients as socially deviant perverts. These perceptions, however, are no longer supported by contemporary research and changing societal perceptions of the sex industry, challenging how we understand and describe "escorts. Read More

Prevention of the selection of resistant Staphylococcus aureus by moxifloxacin plus doxycycline in an in vitro dynamic model: an additive effect of the combination.

Int J Antimicrob Agents 2004 May;23(5):451-6

Department of Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics, Gause Institute of New Antibiotics, Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, 11 Bolshaya Pirogovskaya Street, Moscow 119021, Russia.

Twenty-four hour ratios of area under the curve (AUC(24)) to MIC of 200-240 h providing quinolone concentrations above the mutant prevention concentration (MPC) protected from enrichment of resistant Staphylococcus aureus in our recent study that simulated the pharmacokinetics of moxifloxacin, gatifloxacin, levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin. These protective AUC(24)/MICs might also be achieved by using antibiotic combinations, assuming additive effects of two anti-staphylococcal agents. To test this hypothesis, changes in S. Read More
