    Recycling of waste reduces the demand for virgin materials, the amount of waste to be incinerated and/or landfilled, and also reduces emissions from these sources, however, it generates waste and emissions of its own. This paper presents a static inter-industry model for analyzing economic and environmental effects of the recycling of waste that is capable of accommodating these aspects of recycling. Waste can be classified into two major categories depending on the way it is generated: ...

    GH release decreases with aging in primates. However, it is unclear whether the age-related decrease in GH release is due to a decrease in stimulatory GHRH or an increase in inhibitory somatostatin (SS) from the hypothalamus. In the present study, we measured the release of GHRH and SS in the stalk-median eminence of conscious aged (n = 7, 27.0 +/- 0.7 yr old) and young adult female monkeys (n = 12, 5.0 +/- 0.3 yr old) using the push-pull perfusion method. Mean GHRH levels during morning ...

    PURPOSE: Data from common clinical practice were used to generate balanced cohorts of patients receiving either sorafenib or lenvatinib, for unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma, with the final aim to investigate their declared equivalence.

    METHODS: Clinical features of lenvatinib and sorafenib patients were balanced through inverse probability of treatment weighting (IPTW) methodology, which weights patients' characteristics and measured outcomes of each patient in both treatment arms. ...

    BACKGROUND: We previously reported that expressions of the pro-angiogenic cytokines angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2), follistatin, granulocyte colony-stimulating factor, hepatocyte growth factor, leptin, platelet-derived growth factor-BB, platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1, and vascular endothelial growth factor were associated with the response to sorafenib in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The aim of the present study is to examine the same relationship in a ...

    Effective strategic planning for industrial waste management requires sound knowledge of the waste streams in an economy. Based on an input–output analysis with an extended function to consider the entire life cycle of a product, waste input–output (WIO) analysis plays an important role in describing the driving forces behind the generation of industrial waste. In this study, we compile a high-resolution WIO table for Taiwan that traces the flow of waste streams covering almost all types ...

    BACKGROUND: Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a polypoid lobular capillary hemangioma rarely observed in the gastrointestinal tract. Only a few cases in the small bowel have been described in the literature.

    CASE PRESENTATION: A 58-year-old man had been suffering from general fatigue and severe anemia. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy did not reveal any significant bleeding. Abdominal computer tomography revealed a hypervascular tumor in the small intestine. Oral double-balloon ...

    AIM/BACKGROUND: Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is recommended for patients with intermediate-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In this study, we investigated the impact of early lenvatinib administration in patients with intermediate-stage HCC, especially those with tumors beyond the up-to-7 criteria.

    MATERIALS/METHODS: A total of 208 patients with intermediate-stage HCC whose initial treatment was early lenvatinib administration or TACE were enrolled. Multivariate overall ...

    We investigated the impact on survival of modified albumin-bilirubin (mALBI) grade versus Child-Pugh classification in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who received lenvatinib. A total of 524 patients with HCC who received lenvatinib were included. Univariate analysis showed that mALBI grade 2b/3 and Child-Pugh class B/C were significantly associated with survival [hazard ratio (HR), 2.471; 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.944-3.141 and HR, 2.178; 95%CI, 1.591-2.982].

    Introduction: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is considered a safe and minimally invasive procedure. We previously reported that the mortality and complication rates for RFA were 0.038% (5/13,283 patients) and 3.54% (579 complications/16,346 procedures), respectively, from 1999 to 2010 (previous period). In this study, we investigated the clinical criteria for RFA and the mortality and complication rates from 2011 to 2015 (recent period).

    Methods: Data ...

    BACKGROUND: In magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with 3D-double-echo steady-state (3D-DESS) sequences, the cartilage-synovial fluid contrast is reported to be better with a flip angle of 90° than with the conventional flip angle of 40°, and the detection rate of knee cartilage injury may be improved.

    PURPOSE: To compare the diagnostic performance and certainty of diagnosis with 3D-DESS images made using two flip angle settings, 40° and 90°, for knee cartilage surface lesions of Grade 2 or ...

    BACKGROUND/AIM: Although systemic therapy is recommended for patients with multiple intermediate stage unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (u-HCC) classified as beyond the up-to-7 criteria (UT-7 out/multiple) as a transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) unsuitable condition, few reports have examined the therapeutic efficacy of atezolizumab plus bevacizumab combination therapy (Atez/Bev) in such cases. This study aimed to elucidate the therapeutic response of Atez/Bev in u-HCC ...

    Global contamination of the oceans by waste plastics is of increasing concern. Besides being the largest emitter of CO2 in the world, China is suspected of being the largest contributor to marine plastic waste pollution. Responsible for the latter is the still inadequate management of waste in China, a significant improvement of which is necessary for addressing the issue of marine plastic pollution. Since plastics are hydrocarbons, submitting them to appropriate waste ...

    BACKGROUND: The clinical characteristics of IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC) especially without autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) have not been investigated in a large cohort.

    AIMS: To clarify the clinical characteristics of IgG4-SC and IgG4-SC without AIP.

    METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed imaging, serology, other organ involvement (OOI) and histology of 872 patients with IgG4-SC who participated in a Japanese nationwide survey in 2019, and compared these items between ...

    BACKGROUND: In response to socioeconomic pressure to cut budgets in medicine, single-use surgical instruments are often reprocessed despite potential biological hazard.

    PURPOSE: To evaluate the quality and contaminants of reprocessed shaver blades.

    HYPOTHESIS: Reprocessed shaver blades have mechanical damage and chemical contamination.

    STUDY DESIGN: Controlled laboratory study.

    METHODS: Seven blades and 3 abraders were reprocessed 1 time or 3 times and then were assessed. In the first ...
