Why do short term workers have high mortality? (1/611)

Increased mortality is often reported among workers in short term employment. This may indicate either a health-related selection process or the presence of different lifestyle or social conditions among short term workers. The authors studied these two aspects of short term employment among 16,404 Danish workers in the reinforced plastics industry who were hired between 1978 and 1985 and were followed to the end of 1988. Preemployment hospitalization histories for 1977-1984 were ascertained and were related to length of employment between 1978 and 1988. Workers who had been hospitalized prior to employment showed a 20% higher risk of early termination of employment than those never hospitalized (rate ratio (RR) = 1.20, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.16-1.29), and the risk increased with number of hospitalizations. For workers with two or more preemployment hospitalizations related to alcohol abuse or violence, the rate ratios for short term employment were 2.30 (95% CI 1.74-3.06) and 1.86 (95% CI 1.35-2.56), respectively. An unhealthy lifestyle may also be a determinant of short term employment. While it is possible in principle to adjust for lifestyle factors if proper data are collected, the health-related selection of workers requires careful consideration when choosing a reference group for comparative studies of cumulative occupational exposure.  (+info)

The induction of macrophage spreading: role of coagulation factors and the complement system. (2/611)

Unstimulated mouse peritoneal macrophages, attached to either glass or plastic substrates, responded to factors generated in serum and plasma by spreading and increasing their apparent surface area up to eightfold. Two distinct and dissociable systems were involved. The first appears related to the distinct and dissociable systems were involved. The first appears related to the contact phase of blood coagulation. It is activated by glass and not plastic surfaces, depleted by kaolin adsorption, and inhibited by soybean trypsin inhibitor. In contrast, a separate complement-dependent system can be generated in kaolin-adsorbed plasma. Activation of the complement system can occur either by the alternate or classical pathways and generates a relatively small effector molecule which is dialyzable. These factors presumably influencing the surface membrane and underlying structures may explain the rapid spreading of activated macrophages observed after both infections and chemical peritoneal inflammatory agents.  (+info)

A clearance model of inhaled man-made fibers in rat lungs. (3/611)

A clearance model of inhaled man-made fibers (MMFs) was developed, and the calculated fiber numbers and dimensions were compared with the experimental ones using a glass fiber (GF), ceramic fiber (RF1) and two potassium octatitanate whiskers (PT1, TW). If the translocation rate by macrophages is constant and the effect of dissolution and disintegration can be ignored, the fiber number is expected to decrease exponentially with time. In the experimental study, however, the fiber number did not always decrease exponentially. In the case of RF1, the fiber number decreased almost exponentially and the diameter decreased linearly with the time. The clearance rate constant of GF during 3 to 6 months after the end of one-month exposure was greater than that during 1 to 3 months. On the contrary, the clearance rate constants of PT1 and TW during 1 to 6 months were greater than next six months. The diameter and the length of GF did not change significantly. The fiber length of PT1 tends to become longer with time although the diameter did not change significantly. Our theoretical model gives a satisfactory fit to these experimental results.  (+info)

Role of extracellular matrix and Ras in regulation of glomerular epithelial cell proliferation. (4/611)

Signals from extracellular matrix (ECM) to growth factor receptors regulate glomerular epithelial cell (GEC) proliferation. Epidermal growth factor (EGF), basic fibroblast growth factor, hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), or thrombin stimulated proliferation of GECs when the cells were adherent to collagen matrices, but not plastic substratum. Furthermore, EGF, HGF, or thrombin activated p42 mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase in collagen-adherent GECs, whereas activation was weak in GECs on plastic. To further examine the interaction of ECM with the Ras-MAP kinase cascade, GECs were stably transfected with a constitutively active Ras mutant (V12Ras). Low or moderate levels of V12Ras expression did not affect basal MAP kinase activity but, unlike parental GECs, in clones that express V12Ras, EGF was able to induce proliferation and activate MAP kinase when these cells were adherent to plastic. In parental and V12Ras-transfected GECs, MAP kinase activation was inhibited by cytochalasin D. Thus, adhesion of GECs to ECM facilitates proliferation and MAP kinase activation by mitogens acting via tyrosine kinase or non-tyrosine kinase receptors. Activation of pathway(s) downstream of V12Ras supplants signals from ECM that enable proliferation. These signals may involve the actin cytoskeleton.  (+info)

Stability of gentamicin in serum. (5/611)

Patients' sera were divided into three portions when the initial gentamicin level was determined and were stored at -20, 4, and 25 degrees C in plastic or glass tubes. Gentamicin levels were repeated after 1 and 2 days of storage at the respective temperatures. There was no significant difference in gentamicin levels among portions, except those from a patient in renal failure with high serum concentrations of carbenicillin.  (+info)

An investigation of factors contributing to styrene and styrene-7,8-oxide exposures in the reinforced-plastics industry. (6/611)

During the manufacturing of reinforced plastics, large amounts of styrene and trace quantities of styrene-7,8-oxide (SO) are released. Since previous work suggests that inhalation of even small amounts of SO might be an important health risk, we investigated several possible factors contributing to styrene and SO exposure during the manufacture of reinforced plastics. Factors related to job type, worker and the type and quantity of styrene-containing resins were investigated using mixed-effects multiple linear regression models. Overall, SO exposure levels were positively correlated with styrene exposure levels. However, this correlation was statistically significant only among hand laminators who had the highest exposures to both styrene and SO. An important factor for predicting both styrene and SO concentrations was the type of resin used, while the quantity of resin consumed was predictive of styrene but not of SO exposure. Since So exposure appears to be associated with factors other than coexposure to styrene, more effort should be placed on investigating emissions of SO per se. The type of mixed-models regression analysis employed in this study can be used for clarifying the underlying patterns for exposures to styrene and SO as well as for evaluating preventive measures.  (+info)

Considerations for in vitro retinoid experiments: importance of protein interaction. (7/611)

Retinoids, natural and synthetic substances structurally related to vitamin A, are important modulators of cell proliferation and differentiation, and have proven activity in cancer therapy. Experiments to reveal the mechanism of action of retinoids are routinely performed in in vitro models. As retinoids are relatively hydrophobic and unstable, we hypothesized that the composition of culture media is of critical importance for the stability and bioavailability of these compounds. Various culture media were incubated with all-trans-, 13-cis- and 9-cis-retinoic acid (RA). Without fetal calf serum (FCS) or bovine serum albumin (BSA) in the medium, the concentration of these retinoids was found to decrease to considerably low levels. This excessive loss of retinoids was due to absorption to culture plates, reaction tubes and pipet tips. Binding of retinoids to BSA was demonstrated to have attenuating effects on uptake and metabolism of all-trans-RA, as studied in oral keratinocytes and head and neck cancer cells, indicating that a balance exists between the bioavailability and the aspecific loss of retinoids. In this study we demonstrate that the type of culture medium and especially the presence of protein in the medium is of paramount importance to perform reproducible experiments with retinoids.  (+info)

Washing plastic spacers in household detergent reduces electrostatic charge and greatly improves delivery. (8/611)

Ionic detergents reduce electrostatic charge on plastic spacers, thereby improving in vitro drug delivery. The aim of this study was to gain practical information on the use of detergents and to evaluate the relevance of this information on in vivo drug deposition. Measurement of electrostatic charge and salbutamol particle size distribution was carried out on detergent-coated and noncoated plastic spacers. The efficiency of four household detergents was compared, and the influence of dilution and the duration of the antistatic effect were studied. In addition, the level of radiolabelled salbutamol deposition in the lungs of eight healthy adults was compared after inhalation through a new versus a detergent-coated spacer. In vitro, all tested detergents reduced the electrostatic charge on the spacer surface. This resulted in a mean increase of 37.4% (range 33.5-41.2) in small particle (<6.8 microm) salbutamol output compared with water-rinsed/drip-dried spacers. Dilution had no influence on the results and the effect lasted for at least four weeks. In vivo, the mean lung deposition of radiolabelled salbutamol in healthy subjects was 45.6% (range 43.4-49.5) through a detergent-coated spacer compared to 11.5% (range 7.6-17.9) through a static spacer (p<0.001). In conclusion, household detergents offer a simple and practical solution to the problem of static on plastic spacers and significantly improve both in vitro and in vivo delivery of salbutamol.  (+info)

Development of plastic scintillation detector (PSD) systems for dosimetry has been evolving for two decades now. The subject area has been a topic of a keen research interest that has generated lot of publications lately. PSD systems are being introduced in the market place. Numerous PSD systems for External Beam Radiation Therapy and Brachytherapy have been proposed, most times differentiating from the original systems by slight changes in one or more components, such as the photodetector. However, few major technological and engineering innovations have enabled this new technology to be embraced by the community which helped launching these systems for commercialization (Standard Imaging, Radiadyne, etc.). Scintillation materials (plastic, scintillating fibers and liquid) have many properties that make them ideal for dosimetry including water equivalence and energy independence for MV photons, linearity with dose, dose rate independence, high spatial resolution and nanosecond fast response time.

Living four days without consuming plastics hasnt been such a challenge yet; nevertheless it became more fun. As a quick reference to my last blog post, I aim to reduce my plastic use significantly for 30 days and reuse the products that I already have. My main motivation to do this is to help drawing attention to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and other marine debris around the world.. Plastics can live longer than human beings. It takes 100 years for a plastic bottle to degrade in a marine environment. Given that plastics were invented only in the 19th century, almost all of the plastic content that was produced still exists somewhere in the world.. It is indeed very easy to live without plastic bags and plastic bottles. I bring my own shopping bag when I go grocery shopping and I reuse my old bottles and try to avoid plastic bottles in any kind. It was hard to give up some of beverages that I like. However, I can find access to drinking water easily in many developed cities. Hence, glass ...

0033]Processes for production of TPU are well known. By way of example, the thermoplastic polyurethanes can be produced via reaction of (a) isocyanates with (b) compounds reactive toward isocyanates and having a molar mass of from 500 g/mol to 10 000 g/mol and, if appropriate, (c) chain extenders having a molar mass of from 50 g/mol to 499 g/mol, if appropriate in the presence of (d) catalysts, and/or of (e) conventional auxiliaries and/or additives. The inventive plasticizers (i) can be added either to the compounds (b) reactive toward isocyanates prior to or during the production of the TPUs or else to the finished TPU, for example to the molten or softened TPU. The thermoplastic polyurethane can be processed thermoplastically, without loss of the action of the inventive plasticizers. The starting components and processes for production of the preferred TPUs will be described below. The components (a), (b), (c), and also, if appropriate, (d) and/or (e) usually used in the production of the ...
The proposal, aiming in the long term to reduce plastic, implies the creation of biodegradable and ecological materials based on Geen Cemistry. Apart from this, it allows on-site analysis which is simple and fast and in most cases doesn´t require external energy sources. Biodegradable materials will probably be the definitive substitutes of plastic researcher at the Department of Analytical Chemistry at UV and one of the authors of the article, Neus Martínez Jornet, highlights.. The biosensors are devices which incorporate natural, biological materials (enzymes, microorganisms, anti-bodies, proteins etc.) into non-biodegradable frames and used to measure biological or chemical parameters. Some of the things that can be thus measured are levels of glucose and cholesterol or nitrares in blood, as well as phosphates and amonnium in water.. Most of this kind of devices are made from non-degradable materials, and their use is rising. Once they are used up, they create a great quantity of residue ...

Phthalate esters (PEs) belong to a class of organic compounds used as plasticisers in plastic materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and so on, including those used in the food packaging industry. Phthalate plasticisers are not chemically bound to plastic materials and hence, migrate into items such as foodstuffs they house. The study aimed at investigating the prevalence of selected phthalate esters from plastic wrappers into food as well as the presence of food and/or pathogenic microorganisms. Plastic-wrapped cheese, vienna sausages and polony samples purchased from commercial stores in the four regions of Pretoria (Tswane), South Africa, were analysed for the presence of plasticisers; di-2-ethylhexyl adipate (DEHA), di-n-butyl phthalate (DnBP), benzyl-butyl phthalate (BBP), di-butyl phthalate (DBP) and dimethyl phthalate (DMP). Soxhlet extraction using hexane with florisil column cleanup was carried out. Analysis of PEs was by Gas ...

The word Hard is used to describe only one characteristic, the stiffness, of the plastic material these lenses are made from. The word Rigid is used in exactly the same way.. A separate issue is the Gas Permeability of the material. The gases we are talking about are Carbon Dioxide and Oxygen - both of critical importance to the healthy functioning of the cornea. Ideally Carbon Dioxide molecules leaving the cornea would pass freely (permeate) through the contact lens and escape to the air: Oxygen from the air would pass freely (permeate) in the opposite direction to bring fresh oxygen to the cornea - keeping it clear.. Traditional Hard / Rigid plastic material did not allow any gas to pass through at all. For more than 40 years however we have used Rigid lenses of increasingly excellent Gas Permeability. Hence Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) lenses. The surface of these lenses is easy to clean and not prone to contamination, typically lasting about 3 years - sometimes more, before being ...
In recent years, colloidal quantum dots (QDs) have strongly attracted attention in the field of lighting and display technologies [1]. These are crystals from inorganic semiconductors in the size of a few nanometers which leads to quantum effects which dictate their optical and electronical behavior. The smaller these crystals get, the more confined are the charge carriers which increases the gap between the energy bands of the QDs. This means the wavelength of the emitted light of the QDs can be tuned by their size. Other advantages are the high quantum efficiency, small full width at half maximum (FWHM), chemical stability, and the possibility to process from a solution.. These advantages are used in light-emitting diodes based on QDs (QD-LEDs) which give them a few benefits over their organic counterparts. It is possible to produce QD-LEDs in nearly every wavelength of the visible light with the same material by using different sized QDs as the emitting layer and the FWHM is much smaller (30 ...
February 24, 2005. Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists who have developed a method to turn chicken feathers into plastic products are continuing to bring the technology closer to the marketplace. ARS chemist Walter Schmidt developed the technology to clean feathers and separate them into chopped fibers and quill pieces. Now Schmidt and fellow ARS chemist Justin Barone have developed and applied for a patent for a process to convert cleaned and chopped feather material into plastic products on a laboratory scale. Schmidt and Barone work in ARS Environmental Quality Laboratory in Beltsville, Md. According to Barone, the material is made on traditional plastics processing equipment using chopped chicken feathers and other easily obtainable, naturally derived materials. The feather-derived plastic can be molded just like any other plastic and has properties very similar to commodity plastics such as polyethylene and polypropylene. This makes the feather-derived plastic a unique material ...
Natural News) The future looks brighter as researchers have discovered a way to create plastic thats not harmful to nature. Scientists from the Centre of Sustainable Chemical Technologies (CSCT) at the University of Bath has successfully created a plastic material that doesnt use highly toxic substances that could pose problems not only to the environment but also to our health. This biodegradable plastic will be made from sugar and carbon dioxide instead of crude oil and bisphenol-A (BPA) - a material banned from use in baby bottles - and phosgene, a highly toxic chemical that was even used as a weapon in World War I.. With an ever-growing population, there is an increasing demand for plastics. This new plastic is a renewable alternative to fossil-fuel based polymers, potentially inexpensive, and, because it is biodegradable, will not contribute to growing ocean and landfill waste, said Dr. Antoine Buchard, Whorrod Research Fellow in the Universitys Department of Chemistry. Our process ...

Carien van Aubel. Conservation Science intern, University of Amsterdam. Collections with objects dating from the late-nineteenth-century onwards often include a variety of plastics. As there are numerous different types of plastics it would be hoped that specific identification would be stated in the records but it is not easy for those not experienced with plastics to identify them. For unambiguous identification it is necessary to carry out technical analysis, mostly time-consuming, costly and not always accessible for every collection. Plastics that are easy to identify often already show degradation signs, like a specific smell, crazing or discolouration. By knowing the nature of materials in a collection, better care can be taken of objects.. The Museum of Design in Plastics (MoDiP) at the Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) developed a flowchart to identify plastics for curators and others with little knowledge of plastic materials.1 It was written in collaboration with experts from ...
We showed previously that confluent ARPE-19 cells grown on different matrices had different transcriptional profiles from native RPE, and that cells grown on plastic had the closest transcriptome to native RPE.2 To improve the transcriptional proximity of ARPE-19 cells grown on plastic to native RPE, we varied the culture conditions and evaluated global expression trends, a more informative benchmark than individual gene expression. With this end point, CSW and DSW cells were most similar to native RPE. While each culture condition preserved the expression of the most abundant genes, significant transcriptional differences exist between native and cultured cells including the number of genes on the array that were expressed and not expressed, the number and function of differentially expressed genes, and the number of expressed low abundance genes. Our results suggest that the global expression profiles can be improved by varying the culture conditions, but significant widespread differences ...
Plastics that decompose in the nature by the action of microorganisms are generally referred as biodegradable plastics. These plastics are divided into different categories such as bio-based and petro-based biodegradable plastics.

Plastic is one of the most environmentally unfriendly materials, because it takes so long for this plastic to completely break down naturally.. Plastic materials are not stored for long when compared to metals. They are easy and often thrown away when they are not used anymore.. Much effort has been made to reduce plastic waste to find ways to destroy plastic faster.. Reported by detikINET from Ubergizmo the good news is that Singapore researchers at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have found a possible alternative to plastic substitutes using shells and fruits.. This arises when researchers try to make chitin, a food thickener or stabilizer and also those used in antimicrobial food packaging.. A large amount of shrimp waste has sparked industrial interest because it is an abundant source of chitin. However, there are problems in extraction methods that are unsustainable and dangerous for the environment, said Professor William Chen, Chief Researcher.. Our new method of taking ...
A semiconductor device in which degradation due to permeation of water and oxygen can be limited, e.g., a light emitting device having an organic light emitting device (OLED) formed on a plastic substrate, and a liquid crystal display using a plastic substrate. A layer to be debonded, containing elements, is formed on a substrate, bonded to a supporting member, and debonded from the substrate. A thin film is thereafter formed on the debonded layer. The debonded layer with the thin film is adhered to a transfer member. Cracks caused in the debonded layer at the time of debonding are thereby repaired. As the thin film in contact with the debonded layer, a film having thermal conductivity, e.g., film of aluminum nitride or aluminum nitroxide is used. This film dissipates heat from the elements and has the effect of preventing deformation and change in quality of the transfer member, e.g., a plastic substrate.
