Yu-Hua Lin

Department of Nursing, I-Shou University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, ROC

Title: Effects of a mobile supportive care program on depression in oral cancer patients underwent surgery

Biography:

Yu-Hua Lin has completed her PhD degree from the school of nursing, Kaohsiung Medical University, Taiwan. She had 35 years working experience in the field of nursing. Now, she is a professor in the school of nursing, I-Shou University in Taiwan R.O.C. She has published more than 50 papers in reputed journals and has been serving as an editorial board member of the Journal of Nursing in Taiwan Nurses Association.         
 

 

Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a mobile supportive care program (MSCP) on depressive symptoms in patient with oral cancer underwent oral surgery. A quasi-experimental design with simple randomize sampling, and the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) was used to collect participants’ data. Participants were distributed into with a MSCP before discharge (experimental group, n=55) or without used MSCP (control group, n=55). The MSCP was loading in a Line app in experimental group mobile after education. The outcome was followed at the 7 days (first time clinic visited, T1), one month (T2), and three month (T3) after discharge.  The CESD scores showed that all the two groups’ participants experienced depressive symptoms decreased at the one and three months after received MSCP (all p<.001). The generalized estimating equation analysis showed that after controlled age, both group and time were significantly different, indicated both group patients experienced depressive symptoms improvement, however, the MSCP group depressive symptoms was improved better than non-MSCP group. An interaction existed between the groups and test times in CESD from Time 1 to Time 3. These results indicate that the MSCP effects were influenced by time. These results showed that the CESD score of the experimental group was significantly lower than that of the control group by 6.51 points at one-month, and 5.60 points at three-month. This results recommend for the healthcare staff embed this MSCP into discharge plan in care of oral cancer patient underwent oral surgery.

Abstract:

Obesity is a global health problem and also a strong
risk factor for type 2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular
diseases and obesity genes play a major role in the central
regulation of energy balance. Orlistat (Xenical, Alli) is a
synthetic anti-obesity drug approved by European Medicines
Association (EMA) and Food and drug administration
(FDA). But studies shown, orlistat supplementation causes
severe liver and kidney injury. Melatonin, an indolamine,
produced by the pineal gland plays a major role in circadian
rhythm and one of the powerful antioxidant. Literatures
shown, it also exerts control over metabolic functions that
determine fat accumulation and obesity and it also protects
environmental toxicants induced liver and kidney injury.
Garlic (Allium sativum L.), has been used as medicinal and
alimentary medicine from ancient period and these has
been used extensively worldwide especially in countries
like India. Studies reported garlic and its constituents have
shown the various biological activities especially against
cardiovascular disease due to its blood lipid-lowering, antithrombosis,
antioxidant effects and inflammatory response.
Diallyl trisulphide (DATS), a natural product from garlic
have gained attention in many biological activities. Based
on literatures and to compensate the orlistat induced side
effects, we propose to study the expression levels of obesityrelated
genes in high fat diet (HFD) induced experimental
animals and also to see the impact of melatonin alone
and in combination with DATS supplementation compared
to orlistat alone therapy. We studied mRNA and protein
expression of KSR2, IRX3, FTO and Neuropeptide Y by real
time PCR and western blot method in liver, adipose tissue
and brain of experimental animals along with antioxidant
and liver function parameters. Histological observations
of liver and adipose tissue were also studied. Based on
results we found that both the melatonin and DATS alone
and its combination with orlistat therapy is efficacy and
safety when compared to orlistat alone therapy. This study
determined the clinical usefulness of melatonin and DATS
as supplemental therapeutic agents in obesity induced liver
and kidney dysfunction as well as in orlistat therapy and it
may help in providing the therapeutic options to tackle the
obesity without causing side effects.

Abstract:

Series of Er3+-activated NaSrLa(MoO4)3 phosphors were prepared by a traditional solid-state reaction technique. At 378 nm excitation, the obtained compounds displayed stronger green emissions that can be seen by naked eye. As the increment of Er3+ ion concentration, the emission intensity increased and reached its maximum value when the doping concentration was 4 mol%. The critical distance was calculated to be 25.32 Å and the dipole-dipole took the domination in the concentration quenching mechanism. In addition, by means of a fluorescence intensity ratio technique, the temperature sensing performances of the synthesized samples in the temperature range of 303–463 K were investigated based on the thermally coupled levels, 2H11/2 and 4S3/2, of Er3+ ions. It is also found that the doping concentration can influence the sensor sensitivity of Er3+-activated NaSrLa(MoO4)3 phosphors. These results demonstrate that the Er3+-activated NaSrLa(MoO4)3 phosphors are promising candidates for simultaneous solid-state lighting and non-contact hermometry

Abstract:

Recycling and using raw materials from the waste we generate are some of the environmental challenge that we face today. Promotion of innovative and appropriate technologies is necessary to achieve sound and sustainable natural resources management. Biochar production using pyrolysis technology can utilize most urban, agricultural or forestry biomass residues, including wood chips, corn stover, rice or peanut hulls, tree bark, paper mill sludge, animal manure, and many other recycled organics for improving soil quality and soil remediation. Biochars as specialized soil amendments can provide multifunctional roles with remarkable agronomic and environmental significance. The use of biochar and other organic amendments for mine spoil remediation are still unclear. Phytostabilization can be enhanced by using soil amendments like biochars that immobilize metal(loid)s when combined with plant species that are tolerant of high levels of contaminants. Our biochars studies demonstrated the favorable and beneficial effects of different designer biochars on soil productivity and phytostabilization of heavy metals in contaminated mine spoils. Application of 80:20 blends of pine chips and poultry litters was found to be superior over other blends of biochars because of its favorable effects on soil and biomass productivity and nutrient uptake of winter wheat. Our research investigations have also confirmed that biochars have binding mechanisms to sequester metals.  Recently, biochars ability to sequester metals has caught the attention of the mine reclamation sector. It is proposed that biochar is a suitable amendment to remediate heavy metals in mine spoils, as well as improve chemical conditions for enhanced plant growth. Better plant growth will improve phytostabilization, increase containment of metal-laden sediment, while also reducing potential metal uptake by plants. As such, utilization of a biochar with appropriate chemical and physical characteristics is crucial for effective binding of heavy metals while also improving plant growth conditions in the mine spoils.

Abstract:

Objectives: (1) Know different nose and chin parameters contributing to the facial profile harmony. (2) Detect the specific facial imbalance of the nose and chin in any patient who is seeking correction of facial profile. (3) Apply different surgical techniques for chin advancement with the least complications and best results.

Abstract: The chin like the nose is in a prominent position on the face and plays very important role in facial profile. The important relationship between the nose and chin may be ignored by many patients who are seeking rhinoplasty and may be underestimated by facial plastic surgeons who perform rhinoplasty This is the task of a facial plastic surgeon to mention this relationship and emphasize its importance for the patient. It is estimated that approximately one fifth of patients requesting rhinoplasty have an underdeveloped mandibular symphysis with normal occlusion (Angle, class I) can benefit from chin augmentation. The relationships between the nose and face were formulated by many authors considering the nasofrontal angle, nasolabial angle, nasofacial angle, and nasomental angle as important aesthetic parameters. Each facial component affects the perception of the balance of the other facial components. An underdeveloped chin with deficient projection will stimulate the image of an over projected nose. For this reason, we evaluated nose-chin proportions and nasal projection before and after genioplasty in rhinoplasty patients. In this presentation different nose and chin parameters contributing to the facial profile harmony will be described. Chin analysis will be discussed according to the most consistent methods. Surgical techniques for osteoplastic chin advancement will be demonstrated. All procedures were performed under general anesthesia with intraoral incision. After exposing the mentum, mental nerves were explored. After markings 5mm below the mental nerves, horizontal osteotomy was performed for chin advancement at the extent which was estimated on preoperative evaluation. The advanced segment was fixed in place with titanium plates or screws. Genioplasty could be performed in patients with chin problems during, before or after rhinoplasty to make a beautiful profile. Our experience with osteoplasty showed satisfactory results with no significant complication.

Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a mobile supportive care program (MSCP) on depressive symptoms in patient with oral cancer underwent oral surgery. A quasi-experimental design with simple randomize sampling, and the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) was used to collect participants’ data. Participants were distributed into with a MSCP before discharge (experimental group, n=55) or without used MSCP (control group, n=55). The MSCP was loading in a Line app in experimental group mobile after education. The outcome was followed at the 7 days (first time clinic visited, T1), one month (T2), and three month (T3) after discharge.  The CESD scores showed that all the two groups’ participants experienced depressive symptoms decreased at the one and three months after received MSCP (all p<.001). The generalized estimating equation analysis showed that after controlled age, both group and time were significantly different, indicated both group patients experienced depressive symptoms improvement, however, the MSCP group depressive symptoms was improved better than non-MSCP group. An interaction existed between the groups and test times in CESD from Time 1 to Time 3. These results indicate that the MSCP effects were influenced by time. These results showed that the CESD score of the experimental group was significantly lower than that of the control group by 6.51 points at one-month, and 5.60 points at three-month. This results recommend for the healthcare staff embed this MSCP into discharge plan in care of oral cancer patient underwent oral surgery.

Abstract:

Obesity is a global health problem and also a strong
risk factor for type 2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular
diseases and obesity genes play a major role in the central
regulation of energy balance. Orlistat (Xenical, Alli) is a
synthetic anti-obesity drug approved by European Medicines
Association (EMA) and Food and drug administration
(FDA). But studies shown, orlistat supplementation causes
severe liver and kidney injury. Melatonin, an indolamine,
produced by the pineal gland plays a major role in circadian
rhythm and one of the powerful antioxidant. Literatures
shown, it also exerts control over metabolic functions that
determine fat accumulation and obesity and it also protects
environmental toxicants induced liver and kidney injury.
Garlic (Allium sativum L.), has been used as medicinal and
alimentary medicine from ancient period and these has
been used extensively worldwide especially in countries
like India. Studies reported garlic and its constituents have
shown the various biological activities especially against
cardiovascular disease due to its blood lipid-lowering, antithrombosis,
antioxidant effects and inflammatory response.
Diallyl trisulphide (DATS), a natural product from garlic
have gained attention in many biological activities. Based
on literatures and to compensate the orlistat induced side
effects, we propose to study the expression levels of obesityrelated
genes in high fat diet (HFD) induced experimental
animals and also to see the impact of melatonin alone
and in combination with DATS supplementation compared
to orlistat alone therapy. We studied mRNA and protein
expression of KSR2, IRX3, FTO and Neuropeptide Y by real
time PCR and western blot method in liver, adipose tissue
and brain of experimental animals along with antioxidant
and liver function parameters. Histological observations
of liver and adipose tissue were also studied. Based on
results we found that both the melatonin and DATS alone
and its combination with orlistat therapy is efficacy and
safety when compared to orlistat alone therapy. This study
determined the clinical usefulness of melatonin and DATS
as supplemental therapeutic agents in obesity induced liver
and kidney dysfunction as well as in orlistat therapy and it
may help in providing the therapeutic options to tackle the
obesity without causing side effects.

It is proposed that biochar is a suitable amendment to remediate heavy metals in mine spoils, as well as improve chemical conditions for enhanced plant growth. Better plant growth will improve phytostabilization, increase containment of metal-laden sediment, while also reducing potential metal uptake by plants. As such, utilization of a biochar with appropriate chemical and physical characteristics is crucial for effective binding of heavy metals while also improving plant growth conditions in the mine spoils.

Abstract:

Objectives: (1) Know different nose and chin parameters contributing to the facial profile harmony. (2) Detect the specific facial imbalance of the nose and chin in any patient who is seeking correction of facial profile. (3) Apply different surgical techniques for chin advancement with the least complications and best results.

Abstract: The chin like the nose is in a prominent position on the face and plays very important role in facial profile. The important relationship between the nose and chin may be ignored by many patients who are seeking rhinoplasty and may be underestimated by facial plastic surgeons who perform rhinoplasty This is the task of a facial plastic surgeon to mention this relationship and emphasize its importance for the patient. It is estimated that approximately one fifth of patients requesting rhinoplasty have an underdeveloped mandibular symphysis with normal occlusion (Angle, class I) can benefit from chin augmentation. The relationships between the nose and face were formulated by many authors considering the nasofrontal angle, nasolabial angle, nasofacial angle, and nasomental angle as important aesthetic parameters. Each facial component affects the perception of the balance of the other facial components. An underdeveloped chin with deficient projection will stimulate the image of an over projected nose. For this reason, we evaluated nose-chin proportions and nasal projection before and after genioplasty in rhinoplasty patients. In this presentation different nose and chin parameters contributing to the facial profile harmony will be described. Chin analysis will be discussed according to the most consistent methods. Surgical techniques for osteoplastic chin advancement will be demonstrated. All procedures were performed under general anesthesia with intraoral incision. After exposing the mentum, mental nerves were explored. After markings 5mm below the mental nerves, horizontal osteotomy was performed for chin advancement at the extent which was estimated on preoperative evaluation. The advanced segment was fixed in place with titanium plates or screws. Genioplasty could be performed in patients with chin problems during, before or after rhinoplasty to make a beautiful profile. Our experience with osteoplasty showed satisfactory results with no significant complication.

Title: Evaluation of magnetic nanoparticles coated by 5-fluorouracil imprinted polymer for controlled drug delivery in mouse breast cancer model

Biography:

Dr. Hamid Hashemi earned his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry at Islamic Azad University. He is Dean of basic science faculty at Damghan Branch, Islamic Azad University and managing editor of journal of Chemical Health risks, He is the author more than 60 papers and 3 book in field of analytical Chemistry

Abstract:

Nanoparticles (NPs) have been extensively investigated to improve delivery efficiency of therapeutic and diagnostic agents. In this study, magnetic molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) was synthesized by using polydopamine. Synthesized MIP was used for controlled 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) delivery in a spontaneous model of breast adenocarcinoma in Balb/c mice in the presence of an external magnetic field. Antitumor effectiveness of 5-FU imprinted polymer (5-FU-IP) was evaluated in terms of tumor-growth delay, tumor-doubling time, inhibition ratio, and histopathology. Results showed higher efficacy of 5-FU-IP in the presence of magnetic field upon suppressing tumor growth than free 5-FU and 5-FU-IP without magnetic field. The 5-FU and Fe distribution among tissues were evaluated by high-performance liquid chromatography and flame atomic absorption spectrometry, respectively. The obtained results, showed significantly deposition of 5-FU in the 5-FU-IP treated group with magnetic field. Thus, magnetic 5-FU-IP is promising for breast cancer therapy with high efficacy.

Title: Global trends in rare earth patents and other macro issues

Biography:

Mr. Kennedy earned a Masters in Political Economics & Public Policy at Washington University, St. Louis.  Mr. Kennedy is an independent consultant for the mining and financial industry.  Mr. Kennedy also works on critical materials, energy and national security issues at the U.S. Federal level, including direct participation on related legislation in the U.S. Congress.  Mr. Kennedy actively consults with the United States Congress, with the current and past Administrations and the Pentagon.  Mr. Kennedy is a published author, including a number of technical papers on rare earths.  Mr. Kennedy is also a recognized expert in matters relating to thorium and nuclear energy.

Abstract:

This presentation will provide various graphic representations of global trends in international patent filings relating to rare earths on a comparative national basis (beginning in 1950 to the present) and outline other macro trends related to rare earths research.  The focus of the presentation is to draw attention to the widening gap in materials science research and related investments into intellectual and commercial capital across various nations.  The scale of the investment differential across nations appears to be compounding the disparity between nations through a feed-back loop of increasing government sponsorship (or lack thereof), rapid commercialization of rare earth dependent components, products & industries that are leveraged through advantageous national policies (or lack thereof) and the consequential drive for greater research in material science from a growing concentration of commercial enterprises (or conversely shrinking) across nations. The scale of asymmetric investment appears to be too large for any one nation to meet.  Collective action is a possible solution.  This presentation concludes with the outline of a multi-national solution that is currently under consideration with the current U.S. Administration
