A call for policy guidance on psychometric testing in doping control in sport.

One of the fundamental challenges in anti-doping is identifying athletes who use, or are at risk of using, prohibited performance enhancing substances. The growing trend to employ a forensic approach to doping control aims to integrate information from social sciences (e.g., psychology of doping) into organised intelligence to protect clean sport. Beyond the foreseeable consequences of a positive identification as a doping user, this task is further complicated by the discrepancy between what constitutes a ...

The clinical performance of a chemiluminescent immunoassay in detecting anti-cardiolipin and anti-β2 glycoprotein I antibodies. A comparison with a homemade ELISA method.

Abstract Background: Fully automated chemiluminescence immunoassays (CLIAs) are emerging technologies for the detection of anti-cardiolipin (aCL) and anti-β2 glycoprotein I (anti-β2GPI) antibodies for anti-phospholipid syndrome (APS) classification, which is commonly based on an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test result. CLIA and a homemade ELISA were used in this study to detect these antibodies, and their performances were compared. Methods: Sera were collected from 104 patients with primary...

The effect of implicitly incentivized faking on explicit and implicit measures of doping attitude: when athletes want to pretend an even more negative attitude to doping.

The Implicit Association Test (IAT) aims to measure participants' automatic evaluation of an attitude object and is useful especially for the measurement of attitudes related to socially sensitive subjects, e.g. doping in sports. Several studies indicate that IAT scores can be faked on instruction. But fully or semi-instructed research scenarios might not properly reflect what happens in more realistic situations, when participants secretly decide to try faking the test. The present study is the first to in...

Unlocking the functional properties in one-dimensional MoSI cluster polymers by doping and photo-induced charge transfer.

To improve functionalization of MoSI cluster polymers we have studied the effects of adsorption doping on the electrical transport, bundling, and optical absorption spectra. Doping results both in enhanced conductivity and aggregated bundles in dispersion. The different electronic properties of different bundle diameters can be ascribed to self-doping during the synthesis. Furthermore, doping shifts the characteristic absorption peaks and transfers oscillator strength to lower energies. Femtosecond optical ...

Stability of the Zhang-Rice Singlet with Doping in Lanthanum Strontium Copper Oxide Across the Superconducting Dome and Above.

The spin character of the states at the top of the valence band in doped La_{2-x}Sr_{x}CuO_{4} (x=0.03, 0.07, 0.15, 0.22, and 0.30) has been investigated using spin-polarized resonant photoemission. A clear Zhang-Rice singlet (ZRS) is observed at all doping levels. Its stability and polarization are preserved as a function of doping, suggesting that the concept of the ZRS can be used across a wide doping range and up to the metallic nonsuperconducting overdoped regime. The results are significant for theore...

Tunable Dirac electron and hole self-doping of topological insulators induced by stacking defects.

Self-doping of Dirac cones in Bi2X3 (X=Se, Te) topological insulators can be tuned by controlling the sequence of stacking defects in the crystal. Twin boundaries inside Bi2X3 drive n- or p-type doping of the surface states, originated by the defect induced spontaneous polarization. Doping up to 10(12)-10(13) e/cm(2) may be achieved depending on the defect distribution. Our findings open the route to fabrication of Bi2X3 surfaces with tailored intrinsic charge and spin densities.

Controlling the dopant dose in silicon by mixed monolayer doping.

Molecular monolayer doping (MLD) presents an alternative to achieve doping of silicon in a nondestructive way, and holds potential for realizing ultra-shallow junctions and doping of non-planar surfaces. Here, we report the mixing of dopant-containing alkenes with alkenes that lack this functionality, at various ratios to control the dopant concentration in the resulting monolayer and concomitantly the doping dose in the silicon substrate. The mixed monolayers were grafted onto hydrogen-terminated silicon u...

Wide-Range Controllable n-Doping of Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) through Thermal and Optical Activation.

Despite growing interest in doping two-dimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) for future layered semiconductor devices, controllability is currently limited to only heavy doping (degenerate regime). This causes 2D materials to act as metallic layers, and an ion implantation technique with precise doping controllability is not available for these materials (e.g., MoS2, MoSe2, WS2, WSe2, graphene). Since adjustment of the electrical and optical properties of 2D materials is possible within a...

Insights into N-doping in single-walled carbon nanotubes for enhanced activation of superoxides: a mechanistic study.

Emerging characteristics upon nitrogen-doping were differentiated in the activation of superoxides over single-walled carbon nanotubes. Both experimental and theoretical studies revealed that enhanced peroxymonosulfate (PMS) activation is ascribed to a nonradical process while persulfate (PS) activation is accelerated via directly oxidizing water, yet hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) activation is inert to N-doping. This study details the first insights into versatile N-doping in carbocatalysis for organic oxidatio...

Quantification of proteinuria is a fundamental step in staging dogs with chronic kidney disease and in monitoring the course of disease or the efficacy of anti-proteinuric treatments. Analytical precision and accuracy of the proteinuria assessment could be affected by several factors such as biological variability, different operators and quality control materials. The aim of this study was to assess whether inter-laboratory variability could affect the urinary protein to creatinine (UPC) ratio and whether ...

Anti-inflammatory effects of adenosine N1-oxide.

Adenosine is a potent endogenous anti-inflammatory and immunoregulatory molecule. Despite its promise, adenosine's extremely short half-life in blood limits its clinical application. Here, we examined adenosine N1-oxide (ANO), which is found in royal jelly. ANO is an oxidized product of adenosine at the N1 position of the adenine base moiety. We found that it is refractory to adenosine deaminase-mediated conversion to inosine. We further examined the anti-inflammatory activities of ANO in vitro and in vivo.

Decoupling the Lattice Distortion and Charge Doping Effects on the Phase Transition Behavior of VO2 by Titanium (Ti(4+)) Doping.

The mechanism for regulating the critical temperature (TC) of metal-insulator transition (MIT) in ions-doped VO2 systems is still a matter of debate, in particular, the unclear roles of lattice distortion and charge doping effects. To rule out the charge doping effect on the regulation of TC, we investigated Ti(4+)-doped VO2 (TixV1-xO2) system. It was observed that the TC of TixV1-xO2 samples first slightly decreased and then increased with increasing Ti concentration. X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS)...
