Department of Wood and Paper Science and Technology, College of Natural Resources, University of Tehran, Karaj 14179-35840, Iran.

Cross-laminated timber (CLT) can be used as an element in various parts of timber structures, such as bridges. Fast-growing hardwood species, like poplar, are useful in regions where there is a lack of wood resources. In this study, the withdrawal resistance of nine types of conventional fasteners (stainless-steel nails, concrete nails and screws, drywall screws, three types of partially and fully threaded wood screws, and two types of lag screws), with three loading directions (parallel to the grain, perpendicular to the surface, and tangential), and two layer arrangements (0-90-0° and 0-45-0°) in 3-ply CLTs made of poplar as a fast-growing species and fir as a common species in manufacturing of CLT was investigated.

Immunoassay design and biotin interference.

Amitava Dasgupta

Adv Clin Chem 2022 5;109:165-183. Epub 2022 May 5.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, KS, United States. Electronic address:

Biotin (vitamin B or vitamin H), a member of vitamin B complex, acts as a cofactor for five biotin-dependent carboxylases, thus playing critical roles in gluconeogenesis, fatty acid synthesis and amino acid catabolism. Although rare inborn errors of metabolism may cause biotin deficiency, these can be successfully treated with biotin supplementation. In general, normal individuals do not get any benefit from taking biotin supplement. Read More

Antibiotic cement-coated intramedullary nail is cost-effective for the initial treatment of GAⅢ open tibia fractures.

Injury 2022 Aug 4. Epub 2022 Aug 4.

Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University, 1120 15th Street, Augusta, GA 30912, United States.

[Removal of a bent femoral nail : Case report: treatment strategy of a complex femoral deformity with a bent femoral nail in situ since 36 years].

Unfallchirurgie (Heidelb) 2022 Aug 9. Epub 2022 Aug 9.

Unfallchirurgie, Orthopädie und Sporttraumatologie, BG Klinikum Hamburg, Hamburg, Deutschland.

To remove a bent femoral nail is always a challenging task for a surgeon. In the last 20 years several case reports and descriptions of techniques are to be found in literature, the goal being to weaken the nail at the apex and then straightening it in situ in most cases. Those reports all have one parameter in common: the necessity to remove the nail relates to a refracture of the femur. Read More
