Generalized dispersion analysis of arbitrarily cut monoclinic crystals.

Dispersion analysis is applicable to arbitrarily cut monoclinic crystals of unknown orientation in order to find the symmetry axis. By this it is possible to differentiate between the transition momen...

Crystal Engineering of Hand-Twisted Helical Crystals.

A strategy is outlined for the design of hand-twisted helical crystals. The starting point in the exercise is the one-directional (1D) plastic crystal, 1,4-dibromobenzene, which is then changed to a 1...

Dispersion analysis of arbitrarily cut orthorhombic crystals.

We developed a measurement and evaluation scheme to perform dispersion analysis on arbitrarily cut orthorhombic crystals based on the schemes developed for triclinic and uniaxial crystals. As byproduc...

The Effect of Additives on the Early Stages of Growth of Calcite Single Crystals.

As crystallization processes are often occur rapid, it can be difficult to monitor the growth mechanisms. Here, we use the fact that crystallization proceeds more slowly in small volumes than in bulk ...

Atomic-resolution structures from fragmented protein crystals with the cryoEM method MicroED.

Traditionally, crystallographic analysis of macromolecules has depended on large, well-ordered crystals, which often require significant effort to obtain. Even sizable crystals sometimes suffer from p...

Cysteamine Eye Drops to Treat Corneal Crystals in Cystinosis

This study will continue to evaluate the long term safety and effectiveness of cysteamine eye drops for treating cystine crystals in the corneas of patients with cystinosis. These drops a...

Immune Effects of Oral Insulin in Relatives at Risk for Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (TN20)

The study is a 2 arm, multi-center, randomized, open-labeled clinical trial designed to assess the effects of varying doses and schedules of oral insulin on immunological and metabolic mar...

Blood Glucose Response After Oral Intake of Lactulose in Healthy Volunteers

Prospective, open, mono-center, randomized, two part study with 4-way cross-over design in each study part. The objective of the study is to investigate blood glucose levels after oral in...

New Cysteamine Eye Drops Formulation to Treat Corneal Crystals in Cystinosis

This study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a new formulation of eye drops used to treat cystine crystals that form in the corneas of patients with cystinosis. Cystinosis is ...

Monitoring Brain Activity in Human Brain Injury

The outcome of brain injury (physical or stroke) may be related to a brain electrical phenomenon known as Cortical Spreading Depression (CSD). This is a brief cessation of function in a l...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tissue NECROSIS in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES, the CEREBELLUM, and the BRAIN STEM. Brain infarction is the result of a cascade of events initiated by inadequate blood flow through the brain that is followed by HYPOXIA and HYPOGLYCEMIA in brain tissue. Damage may be temporary, permanent, selective or pan-necrosis.

Localized reduction of blood flow to brain tissue due to arterial obstruction or systemic hypoperfusion. This frequently occurs in conjunction with brain hypoxia (HYPOXIA, BRAIN). Prolonged ischemia is associated with BRAIN INFARCTION.

Bleeding within the brain as a result of penetrating and nonpenetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Traumatically induced hemorrhages may occur in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRUM; BRAIN STEM (see BRAIN STEM HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC); and CEREBELLUM.

A condition characterized by long-standing brain dysfunction or damage, usually of three months duration or longer. Potential etiologies include BRAIN INFARCTION; certain NEURODEGENERATIVE DISORDERS; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; ANOXIA, BRAIN; ENCEPHALITIS; certain NEUROTOXICITY SYNDROMES; metabolic disorders (see BRAIN DISEASES, METABOLIC); and other conditions.

Neoplasms of the intracranial components of the central nervous system, including the cerebral hemispheres, basal ganglia, hypothalamus, thalamus, brain stem, and cerebellum. Brain neoplasms are subdivided into primary (originating from brain tissue) and secondary (i.e., metastatic) forms. Primary neoplasms are subdivided into benign and malignant forms. In general, brain tumors may also be classified by age of onset, histologic type, or presenting location in the brain.
