  Title Ultrasound screening for fetal anomalies in developing countries: wish or reality? Type Journal Article
  Year 1998 Publication Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences Abbreviated Journal Ann N Y Acad Sci  
  Volume (down) 847 Issue Pages 233-237  
  Keywords Algorithms; Congenital Abnormalities/*ultrasonography; *Developing Countries; Fetus/*abnormalities; Humans; Program Development; Ultrasonography, Prenatal/*trends  
  Abstract The main problems related to the screening of fetal anomalies in developing countries do include general ones of limited resources for health care and specific ones related to ultrasonographic practice, education, and instrumentation. The strategy to improve the detection of fetal anomalies is reliable, but has to be targeted to the following cornerstones: maintenance of obligate minimum of quality in perinatal care, establishment of three ultrasonographic examinations as a basic prerequisite of antenatal care, enhanced importance of first trimester screening, and a uniform program of education of sonographers, emphasizing the standardization of basic examination. Because of limited resources for perinatal care, we have to be highly responsible in selection of echographic instrumentation and appropriate education, subject to rigorous cost-benefit analysis.

  Title Directed differentiation of dopamine neurons from human pluripotent stem cells Type Journal Article

  Abstract Midbrain dopaminergic (mDA) neurons play a critical role in regulating postural reflexes and movement as well as modulating psychological processes. Dysfunction or degeneration of mDA neurons is involved in a number of neurological disorders including Parkinson's disease. Availability of large quantities of human mDA neurons would greatly enhance our ability to reveal pathological processes underlying mDA neuron degeneration and to identify treatments for these neurological conditions. Human pluripotent stem cells (PSCs), including embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), provide an unlimited source for mDA neurons. Here we describe a chemically defined protocol for mDA neuron differentiation. PSCs are first converted to neuroepithelia in a chemically defined medium without any growth factors, followed by patterning the neuroepithelia to midbrain progenitors with fibroblast growth factor 8 (FGF8) and sonic hedgehog (SHH) and subsequent differentiating to functional mDA neurons. This protocol typically yields about half of the neuronal population being mDA neurons, determined by expression of mDA markers, electrophysiological recordings, and the ability to reverse functional deficit in a rat model of Parkinson's disease.

  Title The Study of Life Cycle Assessment of Propylene Carbonate Manufacturing Type Journal Article
  Year 2013 Publication Materials Science Forum Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (down) 743-744 Issue Pages 812-816  
  Keywords  
  Abstract This study attempted to estimate the environmental performance of poly (propylene carbonate, PPC) in the whole life cycle. The life cycle is from raw materials, energy acquisition, manufacture, transportation, to the final disposal, sequentially. The environment impacts of these phases are assessed by the method of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to identify key aspects of environmental loads involving global warming, non-renewable resource consumption, and acidification effects and so on. Moreover, a comparative study due to manufacturing of PPC in its whole life cycle was taken to reveal which stage would make the most environmental load.
